$19 per night (which included a $3/day transaction fee whether you book online or in person and a senior discount of $6/night) was for a mostly level packed sand site with 30-amp electric and water. Our site #97 had complete tree coverage, as did all of the sites in the J. C. Cooper campground loop at Satterwhite Point. There was a wooden picnic table and fire ring on the generous site. The facility as a whole is well maintained and very attractive. As stated above, there are trees throughout the campground so you have to be aware of them as you drive around; use caution. There were some very large units camping here so it is possible to get most any RV into the campground. All employees we encountered were friendly and helpful. It was a very quiet campground during our stay. Boating/fishing on the beautiful lake were the main activities for the campers. AT&T service was four bars of 4G LTE and Verizon service was three bars of 4G LTE. We used our Verizon jetpack to access the internet. We received 18 digital over-the-air TV stations and many radio stations.

$59 per night was for a mostly level gravel site with full hookups. Our site #31 was surrounded by grass and treed at the back. There was a brick patio upon which were placed a wooden picnic table and steel table with springy chairs. There was a pedestal BBQ unit and a fire ring. The facility as a whole is well maintained and very attractive. All employees we encountered were friendly and helpful. This campground is located near to Washington and Baltimore so there are abundant sights to see and, of course, every amenity is available. AT&T service was five bars of 4G LTE and Verizon service was three bars of 4G LTE. Wi-Fi is included in the rate and it was always snappy during our stay. We received 69 digital over-the-air TV stations and many radio stations. Road noise was white noise for us.

$60 per night was for a level concrete-all-around site with full hookups. There are only three full hookup sites (the first site is kept unoccupied to be used as a dump station); the remaining sites have water and electric. All sites are first come, first served. This parking lot (many hospital employees park here) campground is located about one mile from many of the Philadelphia medical facilities including the VA Medical Center and UPENN Hospitals. In addition, all the amenities are close by. It's not much for looks (there are trees along the border fence) but if you're looking for a convenient-to-everything-place to camp and you're going to be out all day, this is the perfect location. Free shuttles are offered to the hospitals and bus stops. The dispatchers, who are the go to people, were very helpful and full of information. AT&T and Verizon cell service were full bars of 4G LTE. We used our Verizon jetpack for internet access as the campground Wi-Fi didn't provide enough speed for our needs. We received 43 over-the-air TV stations and many radio stations.

$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. AT&T service was two bars of 4G LTE using our booster and Verizon service was one bar of 1X. We received six over-the-air TV stations and many radio stations.

$18 per night ($108 weekly rate for senior citizens) was for a level-concrete-runners with full hookups site. Be warned about the high water pressure!

They did bring us an auto tire wheel so we could have a campfire. The campground was loaded with many permanent residents (all friendly) as well as plenty of huge Norway spruce around the perimeter, other trees throughout the campground, and many Canada geese and their goslings roaming about.

The surrounding area is grassy with a picnic table on the asphalt pad and fire ring. The sites could be tight if the campground is full. Rigs that are 40' long take up most of the site with very little room for parking a second vehicle. During our stay, many of the campers parked their second vehicle on an adjacent site. The campground is loaded with different types of trees and there were abundant types of wildlife about. The night sky is very dark so the stars are brilliant.
