S'more Trailside Dining is Barley Creek’s newest outdoor dining option, a totally unique, private outdoor dining experience like no other. Our S’more sites feature your own trailside private dining space tucked back in the trees behind our Pint Size Park, complete with picnic tables, Adirondack chairs, fire pits, and plenty of space to kick back, relax and enjoy our trailside feasts of the week. Find out “s’more” about S’more dining here and then scroll down to make a reservation!
Here’s what you need to know about booking a S’more Trailside Dining Site. If you have additional questions, check out our FAQs below.
Choose from our special S’more family-style menu packages. All packages come with main courses, sides, and S’mores for dessert! Check out our upcoming weekly menus below. (Please note: At this time, only the S’more menu is available at the S’more sites; you can’t order from the Pint Size Park or Main Restaurant menu. Also note that no outside food or beverage is permitted.)
Your S’more site comes stocked with a cooler full of beer, canned cocktails, soft drinks and water. Help yourself to what you want, and we’ll charge you for what’s consumed (like a hotel mini bar – only way, way better.)*
You can also order additional main dishes and sides, carafes of cocktails, bottles of wine, and more.
You can book a reservation below! We’ve got 2 hour time slots that can be booked for 4 to 18 people, depending on availability. Please book reservations 48 hours in advance if possible. When requesting a reservation, please include your name, phone number, date and time requested, and number of people in your party.
A $75 non-refundable deposit is required to confirm your reservation. The deposit is applied to your bill on the day of your reservation. The reason this deposit is non-refundable is because we have to order food and schedule staff in advance. If weather forces us to close the S'mores site, your deposit will be refunded in full and/or we will work with you to schedule another date!
We've tried, but it turns out we can’t control the weather! S'mores dining sites are outside, in the shade, and sometimes when the sun goes down, it gets dark! The dining site fire pits are propane (so not a lot of heat). We do have some umbrella heaters but that only covers a small footprint. You should check the weather forecast and dress the way your mother would tell you to - warm layers, etc. etc. If we have to close because of weather (lightning, hail, locusts?), we’ll contact you and refund your deposit in full. We can’t guarantee indoor seating in the event of a weather cancellation. We'll try, but no guarantees. Should this be the case, we're happy to pack up the event for pick-up.
*Please note that underage drinking is strictly forbidden and will be closely monitored. Any underage drinking by anyone in your party will result in the entire party being asked to leave immediately with no refund. Authorities will be notified where applicable.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Is the site private?
Yes, each site is only booked for one group. We have a total of five sites that vary in size to accommodate a variety of groups.
Do you have wine or cocktails?
We do! You can purchase wine by the bottle or cocktails by the carafe. We have a special Creektails by the Campfire menu, but if you don’t see what you want, just ask. Our Bartenders can almost always make your request possible!
Can I bring my children?
Absolutely! S’more dining is family-friendly!
Can I bring my dog?
Yes, but you must notify us in advance. We will send you our dog policy, the most important thing being that your pup must remain on a leash that is held the entire time. In other words, no leash dragging on the ground behind the pup or tethered to a tree or other object.
Can I take the leftovers?
You are welcome to take any leftover food home with you. If your package included alcohol, we can repackage any unopened beer or canned cocktails. Bottles of wine must be recorked and we need to attach your dinner receipt to your bottle. If your package did not include canned beer or cocktails, all unopened beverages must remain in the cooler and you are not charged for them. Of course, if you wish to take some home, we do sell 4packs of both to-go!
What are the mask requirements?
As of May 13, 2021, the CDC and PA Dept. of Health loosened mask requirements for fully vaccinated people. That means that fully vaccinated guests and team members do not have to wear masks at Barley Creek, effective immediately. For people who are not fully vaccinated, masks must be worn whenever you are not at your site (for example, walking to the restroom, going to play the Pint Size Park amenities, etc.) Masks are not required to be worn when you are in your site.
Can I bring my own food or drinks?
No. Outside food and drinks are prohibited.
Are we permitted to use the Pint Size Park amenities?
Yes, as long as the facility is not closed for a private function.
Can you accommodate groups of more than 20?
Absolutely! We can book multiple sites to accommodate larger groups.
Can I decorate the site?
We’re big believers in no-trace camping, and that means simple decorations that can be easily removed, disposed of, and won’t leave a mark of any kind on furniture, firepits, or Mother Nature (we love our trees!). Absolutely no nails, staples, screws, glue, tape, confetti – you get the idea. The only thing you should leave behind is the faint trace of your footprints and the echoes of your happy laughter.
Please note the following:
We take underage drinking very seriously. If any member of your party who is under 21 is in possession of an alcoholic beverage or suspected to be consuming an alcoholic beverage, the reservation will be terminated immediately. Authorities will be notified where applicable. All illicit drugs are also prohibited.
No foreign objects are permitted to be placed in the firepits.
We know it’s tempting, but no climbing of trees or fences. Please be respectful of our neighbors and do not trespass on their property.
If you have more questions, you can submit a reservation request above and we'll be happy to answer all your questions!
