Default Is Camphill in a bad area? Are there any motels close to the prison?

I want to go visit my husband in camphill and I was wondering if it's a bad area and if anyone can recommend a good motel that is very close to the prison?

It's not a bad area it's across the river from Harrisburg pa. I lived there before and my fiance is in.camp hill right now too. How close do you want to be to the prison there is a lot of hotels in the area.

Not going until next week if the list is approved and I'll be calling in the morning! I found a hotel with good ratings though it's the comfort Inn and there less then ten minutes from the prison and have a discount for triple a members!

That's good yea camp hill is only like 5 -10 from harrisburg so there's a lot of hotels just not right in camp hill but I'm glad you found one. That's funny I was thinking of going next week too but waiting for him to get the visitor list in.

I'm so anxious and nervous to go! I swear I'll start crying if they say his list isn't approved I've literally planned out every detail and took days off work to be there!

Oh I know originally he told me just to wait to visit till he gets to his home prison but this week he said the counselor said it could be a couple more weeks. I haven't seen him in almost 2 months and even before that it was through the glass. So I can't wait to actually see him and.be able to touch him. Never know we.May see each other lol

Haha we probably will! And me and my man have been seeing each other through glass for almost a year and it's been a little over a month since the last time I saw him. I'm getting impatient and I'm really hoping it will be approved

And said they said he should.go to his home prison with in 3-4 weeks.I'm really hoping.he goes to Laural highlands so we can visit.more. I'm so glad I'm not the.only one that waits.for.the.mail man my.neighbors probably think I'm.nuts I watch out the window then hurry to the.mail box lol it's like Christmas when you get a letter

Our men are pretty much at the same.point in all of this! I want my man close to home but I'll just be happy when he can call more than every 4 days haha I've even went to the length of calling the post office multiple times when the mail didn't come at its usually time haha

That's odd. My man's showed up within a few days of him being at camphill. The only thing I could think of is that he's being transferred... he should definitely be coming up if he's in the system at camphill. Do you write him on jpay? They get those faster than letters so maybe write and ask him. Is his calling day coming up?
