KNOEBELS, ELYSBURG -- Campgrounds all over our area were full for this Memorial Day Weekend, kicking off the summer season.

All 800 campsites at Knoebels Amusement Resort in Northumberland County were full for the weekend.

Some of the campers were a little sad today having to pack up and go home after a great weekend at the park.

"It's a nice relaxing area to camp and the park is nearby. You can go down and get something to eat if you want to or just relax. It's very quiet and pleasant," Paul Wacker said.

Knoebels officials point out that the population of the campground this weekend exceeded the population of the community of Elysburg itself.
