Welcome Campers.

Muffler Man

I camp in a little campground in the mountains of PA, outside of 7 Springs Resort. Scottyland has its very own Muffler Man in the campground! He is now dressed as Uncle Sam, and you should come check him out.

Uncle Sam Muffler Man welcomes campers.

Scottyland Muffler Man

This muffler man used to wear a kilt. Now has the appearance of Uncle Sam, with a huge top hat. There is no cost to drive into the camper property. We checked in at the office for directions. They were very accommodating.

Rockwood Muffler Man.

Scottyland Muffler Man

The Muffler Man in Rockwood is at Scottyland RV Park, which I should probably note is closed during the winter months. I stopped in the main office and spoke to the owner who was kind enough to let me in to shoot some photos and even gave me a map to find him.

Muffler Man

I have been looking at a muffler man for the past ten years and I didn't even know it was a muffler man until I saw the Muffler Man Website! There is a cowboy muffler man in Scottyland Campground in Rockwood, PA. It is dressed like a cowboy and we call him Uncle Sam. It's in great shape and gets painted fairly regularly.

Muffler Man - Scottyland Campground

I have pictures of this "muffler man" at Scottyland since 1967. He has been lots of people (cowboy, army man, scotsman, uncle sam) over the years. Today he is a cowboy greeting campers to the campground.
