Directions to Bellwood Sportsmen's Club
From I-99 - I-99 is reached from the south by getting off of the PA Turnpike at the Bedford exit and going north, past three Altoona exits, one Pinecroft exit, then getting off at exit 41, Bellwood. From the North and Tyrone, pass the Grazierville exit and get off at Bellwood Exit, 41.
From Blandburg Glasgow, etc
From Altoona via Homers Gap, Riggles Gap, etc.
From Interstate 99, exit at the Bellwood exit 41, and head towards Bellwood on Route 865. At the traffic signal, cross old Route 220 between the Sheetz store and the Martins store, and go up the hill, where you will cross the bridge (opened September 27th, 2002) over the railroad tracks. Continue on route 865, and follow Tuckahoe/Route 865 North up through Bellwood until you pass Bel-Tip Road - the "back road to Tipton" - and a little farther pass Grandview Road Roots Crossing.
Still heading north, like you were going to Blandburg and Glasgow, you go up a little rise and down a little hill. As soon as you see a speed change to 55 mph, look to your left for the Club. You may see a large sign for Yingling's Repair Service sitting down off of the road; the Sportsmen's Club is the next dirt lane past that. There is a street sign that says "Bellwood Sportsmen's Ln", also.
The sign at the entrance to the club looks like this from Route 865.
If you are coming down the mountain from Blandburg on Route 865, keep a lookout for the Bellwood Reservoir on the right; just past that is Bob and Rose Himes' beautiful farmhouse. And right down the road is Bellwood Sportsmen's, on the right. (See the picture above.)
If you are coming up from Tipton on the "back road" named Bel-Tip Road, at Route 865 (North Tuckahoe), turn right, then follow the instructions above.
Coming down from Altoona on Grandview Road that comes from Wehnwood, Fairview, past Homer's Gap Road, the Asbury Church, past Riggles Gap Road, you eventually get to the intersection with Route 865 at Roots Crossing. Turn left, and you are almost there. Up the hill, start down, watch for the 55 mph speed sign, and there it is on the left.
