With the reopening of the Pickerel Point and Deerfield campgrounds, this park now has just about every type of campsite you can think of. Pickerel Point has electric and water; some WE&S sites and even water front tent sites, but they were full on this weekend so we camped in the Deerfield campground. No hookups in Deerfield but if you like being in the woods with peace and quiet, this is a great spot. All the sites are gravel and big. Some of the sites are a little off level but not so much that you will struggle leveling your camper. With the way it is laid out and the size of the sites, you would not feel crowded here even if it were full. We saw two bears and three racoons in 2 nights here.

I have reviewed this park before and still think it is a great place to stay . The only thing that has changed is that the gas well people are doing a lot of damage to the natural beauty of the area . Some of the migrant workers come into the park late at night and use the showers . They are in general , very sleazy looking characters .

This time we stayed in the lower lake campground . It was clean, quiet, and very scenic with the fall foliage. Just a note to other campers, the Pickerel Point and Deerfield campground will reopen for 2012 and the rehab work they did there is outstanding. This park will now have 4 campgrounds all of which are beautiful.

This is a small wooded campground next to PA's Grand Canyon . You can walk to the canyon's east rim on a trail from here . Sites are a little close, but with all the trees it's not so bad . It is dark and quiet at night, so you will find it peaceful . Bathrooms and showers are very clean. Just a note...the owners are nice people who run this place as a family campground not as a place to party . All in all this is a good place to camp .

This is on the west rim of the PA Grand Canyon . It is a beautiful area here . The thing about this campground is it just as the CCP left it in the 1930"s . Very rustic and pretty . A great place for hiking and tent camping too .

This looks like it was a great family campground at one time. Now there are a lot of dirty , loud ,migrant gas well workers here who paid way too much attention to my teen aged daughters, so they just stayed at our site . Also they drive way too fast and are comming and going day and night .

Very nice campground . The lake and beach area is clean and pretty . Rest rooms and showers are a little dated, but they are in fine working order and clean as well . This is a wooded campground with good shade; the way we like it . Both owners and seasonals are very nice . A good place for the money . Quiet at night too . Will return for sure .

We found this to be a fun place to camp . It is a true campground nicely shaded with trees and a beautiful shallow river running right along side of it . Yes there are a few older seasonal trailers there but they do not dominate the scenery and all the seasonal campers we met were nice folks . Pool, showers, playground, and the whole campground were clean . A good place for families . Your kids will have a good time .

I gave this place an 8 but for kids it is a 10. Always something going on for them. Everyone was very nice here. Sites have plenty of room and are well shaded. The pool was very nice as well. My daughter did not want to leave. Also, the owners are the best we have encountered and we have been to a lot of campgrounds. They do a great job.

Pulled in after spending the day at Knoebels . Drove through to check it out first and decided to stay some place else . This campground looks a little run down, but what chased us off was the junk trailers and old rusted farm machinery and trucks laying all over the entrance and office area . It just gave us a bad impression . The owner needs to clean up his office/junkyard .

We stayed in the pines camping area over the July 4th weekend and had another great time. If you like hiking and wildlife this is a good place for you. There are thousands of achres of wilderness here with miles of trails. The Pickrel Point and Deerfield camping areas will reopen next year. Just a few notes if you come here. This is a non alcohol park and they are not kidding. I have seen stste rangers remove persons from the campground for having beer. Also, this area is well noted for it"s large bear population. Keep your camp clean if you dont want unexpected visitors. We have seen them plenty of times over the years camping here but have had no promlems.

Drunks, golf carts, drunks on golf carts, pit bulls running loose and loud, fowl mouthed adults and teens. A great place if you want to spend a weekend with your family around people with ZERO class.

A great location for a base camp to tour the southern Green Mountains. Campground is set on a hillside overlooking Emerald lake. The beach area is nice and they have boat rentals there too. Sites are well spaced and shaded. We would stay here again.

This is a modern campground with large sites, clean restrooms and showers. Has a very scenic lake with great fishing and a beach, and a lot of nice ranger led programs for both children and adults. This park is also close to the PA Grand Canyon and neat little town of Wellsboro. I have been to a lot of PA"s state parks and this is by far one of the best. Your kids will not run out of things to do here.

Very near the Grand Canyon of PA Stoney fork is a great place to stay when exploring this very scenic area of Tioga county. This is a very well run campground with clean restrooms and showers and nice level sites. We stayed in site 105A under a big shade tree. We just unhooked our trailer and it was dead level. Good electric and water service, a spotless clean pool, and very nice seasonals make this a very good safe place for families to camp and the owners work hard to keep it that way. Also, they have one of the best tent areas I have seen with nice large sites in a pine forest right next to the creek.
