What You'll Get
Mother Nature is a fickle woman, giving us majestic ligers and awe-inspiring double rainbows in the same breath that she gives us naked mole rats and shark-hurling hurricanes. See Mother Nature in all her glory with today's Groupon: for $30, you get two kayak or canoe rentals and use of a primitive tent site if redeemed Sunday–Thursday at Bear Run Campground in Portersville (up to a $95 value). This Groupon also gets you half off additional campsite rentals.
Bear Run Campground's 60 acres of rolling farmland and lush woodland border scenic Moraine State Park and the crystal waters of Lake Arthur, proffering scenic hiking and biking trails. Gracefully hop into kayaks or canoes (up to a $30 value each) and tackle the lake's 3,225 acres of sparkling aqueous solution while you're decked out in provided lifejackets, in whistles that can alert police boats of fishing violators, and with paddles with which you can whack the offenders. Watercraft rentals are good for up to five hours.
Those who opt to redeem this Groupon Sunday–Thursday can make use of a Bear Run Campground primitive tent site (up to a $35 value), complete with a picnic table and a fire ring, not to be confused with a ring of fire. Sprawled within the campground are rustic cabins, a horse pasture, a softball field, an arcade lodge, and a pool. Modern restrooms with hot showers, a store, a snack bar, free hayrides to Lake Arthur, and pet-friendly lodging options make this campground seem fancier than a Persian cat made of rubies.

About Bear Run Campground
Dawn has settled its warm glow upon the trees dappling 60-acres of rolling farmland, beckoning sleepy campers forth from their tents to admire the golden morning unfolding around them. This serene scene at Bear Run Campground rings in a day filled with leisure and excitement, the calm of relaxed breakfasts followed by the splashes of outdoor enthusiasts embarking upon aquatic adventures in rental kayaks. Since its founding in 1975 by the Wehr family, Bear Run has accommodated all types of campers with a variety of lodgings, ranging from cabins and rental units outfitted with all the comforts of home to primitive tenting sites equipped with nothing but a clear space for a tent and a post to tie up pet pterodactyls. Amenities include a heated swimming pool, a game room, and a softball field, and staff also organize camp-wide activities.
