The sites are sand but level, not too close. Water pressure good. When booking your stay, there is a policy about when it can be done. Suggest calling the Co. parks office & get info.

Stayed in the Pickerel point section of the park. Had full hookup, sites are spacious, beach area at lake ,right down road from site, walking distance. This is a well maintained state park. Any large commercial area is approx. 45 min away. Small local store close by. Good for bike riding, use of large lake, nature. Bath houses are modern & kept clean. Rangers & employees are very helpful. Take the time to go to Bushkill falls or the Casino in Mount Airy. Stop at the pretzel factory on the way back. We stayed in a 28ft travel trailer.

They have a large spacious grounds. There are 23 sites in a nice wooded area, all with elec.,water & sewer plus internet access from site. Sites are about 30 ft. apart. It is a very well maintained area & bath house. Williamsburg is about 15 miles away. But jumping on rt. 64 with a 70 mph speed limit, you are there fairly quickly. This is a hidden gem . They also have a nice pool & play area for children. Quiet, clean & excellent staff.

The park is very spacious, with a large lake. Sites with electric & water are limited, so call ahead to see what is available. we stayed in site 57, but also like 120. ask how far connections are, they could be 60 to 70 ft. away because they are located to service a couple site. Other than that this a very nice park. Large grocery store about 10 min. away. About 30 min. to Lancaster.

Very nice park with a lake. All the personal were helpful and friendly. Good hot showers. We were in Cedar loop 7, which was fine for our 28 ft travel trailer. Other site I would recommend would be 27. Both do not have any other site close to them and were near the bath house. Camping loops were well patrolled by the rangers. There is a beach in the park for swimming in the lake that is very nice.

Close to local tourist sites. Large grocery store in small mall down the road. Train tracks about 1-1/2 miles away, you could hear the amtrak on occasions. Over all, not bad.
