If anyone has lodging information for this facility, please post it here.

There's a nice campground about 10-12 miles from the site on the way to Lancaster, a few miles past the river bridge. Nice place to stay. Right smack in the middle of Amish country. The showers and hookups were decent.  
 
White Oak Campground East of Quarryville was pretty nice.  
 
Orchard Campground is closer, only 3 miles to the plant and others stay at Tucquan Campground which is closer to "Buck".

RV lodgings for Peach Bottom Nuke Plant:  
 
Tucquan Park Family Campground  
917 River Road  
Holtwood, Pa. 17532  
(717) 284-2156  
 
There are sites for rv's both, large & small, as well as, tent sites & two cabins. Some pull thru sites. There are 30/50 Amp electric, water, sewer & telephone hookups available.  LP gas refills available on site.   They have a small washer/dryer laundry facility on site, a children's playground, gameroom, swimming pool, restroom/shower facilities, and small store in the office area.  The area is clean & well kept. There are two routes to the campground, one of which is not recommended for rv's, but the owners can give directions to the suggested entry route.

Peach Bottom?!  Does it still exist?  Funny, this thread fished out two old salts in response... I started there in '77.   ...with Rad Services (Roger Knight, Perry Carmel, Frank Mcfadden. Jim O'Conner, Phil Giunatsos, Jeff and Dean Patterson, Harold Dodge, and my old pal Harry Pope, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera.   I was a junior H.P. at 3.50 an hour and all of 30 a day perdiem.   BUT... 7 - 12s was 112 pay hours a week with double time on Sunday.  Top that!

i worked there last outage for the feedwater replacement job.  it was my third trip to peach bottom.  the place is nice place to work.  most of the house techs were alot of fun and good to work with.  there is alot of locals there that are alot of fun to work with also.  myself i stayed over in york, pa in a hotel by sams club.  it was cheap.  but the drive is about 45 to hour depending on the time of day.  i will miss working there this outage.  it would be nice to see alot of the people.   remember the job is what you make it...you do your job and you will do fine.  the rpm (bob norris)is good also he use to be a road tech way back from yankee rowe when it was operating..be careful of the amish buggies everywhere.  have a great outage... :)

How much of Peach Bottom 1 (the gas cooled reactor) is still in place?  I know it was decomissioned years ago, but has it been dismantled yet?  Why was it shut down after such a run?

Why are you so interested in old shutdown reactors? Especially ones with non-standard designs.

Pb Unit 1 Containment building is still there. It has not been dismantled. It was only designed to run for a short time.

It is hard to find any good information on many of the decomissioned reactors.  I am think some the early designs were fascinating.

By the way, for those of you that would like an address for the site to put in to your GPS navigation system, or map quest;  1848 Lay Rd, Delta PA should work for you.

Dave, shame on you, this is the "local info" secion, you know, like for lodging info.  You want the "talk about" section.

Should we merge them?  is havving 2 sections too confusing?  I was thinking about that today.

By the way, put your GPS in your room at night.
Its a pretty lucrative market in PA and NJ.
They got mine after only 3 days, and I was parked 100 feet from the hotel main door.
They smash the drivers side window, and grab your cord, mount, and GPS.
The hotel finally put up a warning sign after mine got stolen.
They hit 4 hotels in 2 nights here in Northeast Philly.

'They' busted out my truck window and 3 other windows in the hotel I was staying in, and stole GPS devices.

Do you really need a GPS? I guess I'm showing my ignorance here but those little pocket maps that Rad Services handed out worked great. And that map in conjunction with mile markers, it's like you knew exactly where you were all the time. It was truly amazing!!!

from my own point of view there never was a need for a gps. mine actually stayred on the front seat and never used the darn thing the direction i recieved in my welcome package was acurate. a little advice though stay away from the red roof inn in aberdeen. you'll have to pay for your wireless !! about 21$ a week for computer access were most other hotels offer free wireless access.

If you worked for Rad Services, you probably were supplied with an abacus also....
Anyway, the GPS is more than just a directional helper.
You can set up traffic alerts.
You can set up your cellphone hands-free hrough the GPS.
Street by street announcements.
You can easily find restaurants, gas stations, post office, etc.
It is your personal navigator, and it can keep you from getting lost and finding the bad part of town.

Thanks for the news flash Dave. My point was that your personal navigator is just a toy that invites scumbags to break into your vehicle and ruin your day. Also I never got lost when I was on the road. I never starved because I couldn't find a restaurant and there is a gas staion on every corner. The post office is pretty much in downtown of every town I've ever been in. C'mon, it's just a neat little gadget.

No, I agree with you that it is just another gadget.
It just makes life so much easier and some people aren't real good when driving around new locations.
Removing it from your car when you leave is a tough lesson I have learned.

I thought the meaning was obvious but it means that you can expect to find windows broken and contents stolen.  Sorry about the caps but I thought that this was an ad, not a conversation.  Nevertheless, feel free to change it if you can (?) or tell me how to.

There is actually a forum rule against all capital letters.  Can you believe that?

It will probably be "Green Fielded" at the same time as the currently operating unit.
