There is only one pull through site that I know of, which is near the bath house, otherwise all are back ins. The low numbered sites on the outer side of the electric hookup loop are bigger than the other side and inside spots. This is our second time here, so we had surveyed the park for favorite sites previously, which I highly recommend. Many sites are not level, and quite a few that are not big rig friendly at all. If possible, check out the sites available before you commit to one. Our stay during the week was wonderful, but unless you really like an over populated, busy, and noisy park, I would avoid weekends. Lots of lovely trails to walk, nice lake to canoe/kayak on (electric motors only) and a huge day use area on the other side of the lake with a pool gives you lots of things to do here. We camped here in a Motorhome.

We needed one night on the way to Lake Ontario from Virginia and when I called the office of this park, I was told they had water and electric and pull thru sites. The site they picked for us would barely hold a pop up, much less our fifth wheel. Not many signs to direct you to the camp area, too. A wonderful park ranger arranged the change to their one, note one, pull thru site from our small one. It was adequate. Not very level, but for one night okay. The lake is lovely, the grounds are lovely, but the people in reservations and in the camp office do not know the campground at all. Will never return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is located on the edge of Wilkes-Barre in the hills just above the city.  Follow local signs, not your GPS.  Local residents use the park as a quick getaway for the weekend, so it is not the friendliest park if you are simply an overnighter.  There are relatively few sites with electric hookups (none with water, be sure to fill your tank), and the dry sites were almost empty while the electric sites were full. Bath houses were cleaned, but heavily used.  Regardless, by 10 PM, people were quiet and we got a good night of sleep. Staff at check-in was quick, efficient, and friendly.  Noise from the highway to the south of the park could be heard. Frequent patrols by park personnel.  The bath house fan made a loud electrical hum that was bothersome.  A previous reviewer said some sites were "stone" covered... this means graveled.  Some sites were not graveled, and instead were muddy.  Length of sites varied greatly.  Some could hold big rigs, while others could barely fit a pop-up.  Select carefully online when reserving.  We had to use one inch of levelers laterally, no big deal there.  Bicycling was fun around the lake, but steep on spots.  AT&T service was five bars.  There is no view of the lake from campsites.  Abundant bird life.  We would opt to camp elsewhere if we were to return to the area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
