This is a beautiful and secluded state park with lots of mature trees and a stream that runs behind a number of the sites. The sites were level and gravel, except for a few paved pull-through sites. The pull-through sites have sewer hookups, but the back-in sites did not. We were able to use one of the pull-through sites to dump our tanks. There are many tent sites available in the campground and some additional primitive sites within the park. The bathrooms were clean. There is a small playground and a covered picnic area. There are lots of places to walk with a dog. We were unable to get cell phone reception with AT&T or Verizon, but that was OK because we were there to enjoy the surroundings. The biggest negative was that the trails were overgrown so thickly with poison ivy that we couldn't use them, but there is a dirt road that runs along the stream that made for a great walk. It was very quiet and the sound of the stream was wonderful. We camped at Buck's Pocket State Park in a Motorhome.

Great small park. Good hiking trails and friendly and helpful staff. Quiet, dark, secluded. Watch that downhill to the park. Also has a nearby boat launch down at the lake. We camped at Buck's Pocket State Park in a Tent Trailer.

This is a nice park to stay while hiking and enjoying the outdoors. The area is beautiful. It is quite remote so nearby places to buy supplies or to eat out are not available. The road to the park is steep and twisty. Larger rigs could have trouble with the road. We camped at Buck's Pocket State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

I planned a trip to camp here but never actually got to. I visited the park several times. This park is really beautiful. There are some gorgeous vistas. As previously stated the campground is in a riverbottom and is prone to flooding. There is even a sign that states do not enter if water is across the road. I didn't camp here because the roads leading into the park are rough and narrow, not a problem in itself. To get to the campground you have to go down a narrow, very steep and very winding road. It is fairly short. I would dread going up or down and meeting another RV coming in the opposite direction. Just a word of caution if you have a big rig. Check it out before attempting it. As far as the comments on the unfavorable characters hanging out in the area: some of the roads are county roads and the rangers have no controll of them. Come to think of it, in 4 visits I never saw a ranger. The area is sparse and the teenagers in this area don't have much to keep them busy. There is also a growing problem with methamphetamine (crack) in this area. The seclusion of this park is ideal for there criminal activities. Don't want to scare anybody off, it really is a nice place. But we must face the facts. We camped at Buck's Pocket State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We camped here back in the spring/late winter. The park is at the very bottom of a steep hill in a canyon between two mountains. The area is exceptionally scenic. There are a few full hook up sites, but most are water/electric only. The campground was built in an old riverbed, which apparently floods on rare weather events. We were warned that there were snakes in the area, but we didn't see any. There are people that come to hang out at the park during the day. Some friends that recently went there, on our recommendation, stated that some of the visitors looked less than decent. They quickly departed that morning. I can definitely recommend this place for the scenery, it's a 10. However, it seems as though park management may be letting the locals take over and use the park as a place to hang out, as we witnessed a little of that. As a result, it only gets a fair rating - in hopes the management will start restricting acess or charge some day use fees to keep out the riff-raff. We camped at Buck's Pocket State Park in a Travel Trailer.
