Nothing Beats the Great Outdoors, 2023.

Muffler Man: Uncle Sam

One of the remaining ~200 Muffler Men in existence, and in great shape as a pseudo Uncle Sam. He is inside the campground and is not visible from the entrance. We were able to get a visitor pass and a map for directions at the office/store just outside the entrance.

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.
