$13.50 per night (regularly $27 per night before Golden Age Passport discount) was for a level compacted gravel/dirt site boarded by timbers. We did have 50-amp electric service and there was water available a few sites away. The generous surrounding area was grass/dirt with a wooden picnic table, fire ring, and a large level compacted dirt/gravel area. The facility as a whole is well maintained and very attractive. All employees we encountered were friendly and helpful. The perimeter of the Point campground has been left to return to nature so there were many trees (which provide shade for most of the day), plants, and abundant wildlife. There are miles of well done/maintained hiking/biking trails. Boating/fishing is a main activity on the beautiful lake. The night sky is very dark so the stars are brilliant when they peek through the treetops. This campground is located about 12 miles from Huntingdon, which has all the amenities. AT&T service was three bars of 4G LTE and Verizon service was five bars of 4G LTE. We received four over-the-air TV stations and many radio stations.

Be advised that the campground will be on a first come, first served system (and might even be closed altogether) starting June 1, 2015 for much needed repairs and upgrades. $20 per night (regularly $24 per night before senior citizen discount) was for a needed-leveling (6" on our right side) gravel/grass site. We did have 50-amp electric service and there was water available a few sites away. Be warned about the almost backward turn you will have to make to access the road to the campground if you come from the park office. We unhooked our tow vehicle in the park office parking lot and, even then, after pulling all the way to the right before attempting the left turn, we still had to back up once before completing the turn. The surrounding area was mowed grass with a wooden picnic table and fire ring. There were loads of trees in the campground providing shade for most of the day. The perimeter of the campground has been left to return to nature so there were loads of trees, plants (including milkweed for the monarch butterflies and other flowering plants for other butterflies) and abundant wildlife. The night sky is very dark so the stars are brilliant when they peek through the treetops. This campground is located miles from the nearest city so come prepared with supplies.
