    As a long time campground host I so enjoyed spending many evenings standing outside the checkin booth talking to Betty. So many wonderful stories. She was such an interesting and caring person and she loved Pymatuning. I miss those evening talks. Rest In Peace Betty you have earned it.

    She was always the friendly face at Jamestown campground! We started camping there in 1976! My kids adored her! Was always Brad a beautiful smile and a big smile, even if the person she had just checked in wasn’t the most pleasant! Her family are in my prayers!!

    Betty was such a blessing . Every year we would camp at least a month at the park. We would always look forward to seeing her there…would live when she came to the Restraunt a few times this Summer.. We want to bless her family at this time with the peace and comfort that only God above can give…..
