This is a typical state park, clean, with a friendly cadre of park rangers. Well-patrolled and with reasonably wide and treed sites (meaning satellite coverage was nonexistent). However, we were promised a 50 amp site but ended up with only 30 amps. There is no water at the sites, although there are water spigots scattered around the campground where you can fill your tank. Sewer is in the form of dump stations. Obviously, no cable, although we could pull in Harrisburg TV stations with our aerial. Our picnic table appeared to be as old as Methuselah. After settling in to our site, we were sitting around enjoying a glass of wine when one of the rangers advised that there was no alcohol allowed, and suggested we retire to the inside of our coach. The problem was solved the next day by using coffee cups in stead of wine glasses! If trying to find the park, our GPS was frustrated trying to find the park. With reservations the entrance is on Route 74, 0.8 mi. east of the intersection of Routes 177 and 74. Without reservations, 2.2 miles north of that intersection on Route 177. Despite the park's inconveniences, we would not hesitate to return in the future. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Nice park. Lots of hiking trails. Sites were a little close, but nothing unusual for a state park. Really liked the reservation web site. Nice to have a photo of each site available. However, renovations are in progress. The camp host visited us to let us know that the construction crew was in to drill and blast rock for a new sewer line. Well, OK...it was very quiet until the drilling commenced. Then BOOM! (It was kinda interesting, actually.) The good news was: The camp host also said that the new sewer lines were being laid to accommodate FULL hookups! Should be ready next year. Outstanding! We will be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Excellent cabins. Easy access to the lake. Swimming area is very nice. Not too crowded over by the cabins. If you are looking for lots of activities that are associated with some campgrounds this is not the place for you. We camped here in a Campground Cabin.
