Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $21.00
Went to area to see elk and we were not disappointed. Campground had minimal services (electric only) but knew that going in. Site was gravel/grass and level with nice spacing between sites. Bathrooms were very clean and campground host pleasant and helpful. Park staff at visitor center were eager to provide information about wildlife, hiking trails, etc. A bonus were the clear, dark skies.
Really isolated with no internet or cell service available. We camped at Sinnemahoning State Park in a Motorhome.
Tips for other Campers:
Canoes, kayaks, and bikes available free at visitor center. Drive to Benezette to see elk (and other wildlife) and take in the Elk Co. Visitor Center.
Everything we hoped for and more. Took a pontoon boat nature ride out on the lake with rangers speaking on wildlife. The new nature center is wonderful. Would recommend to all our family and friends! We camped at Sinnemahoning State Park in a Tent Trailer.
This is a small, quiet, out-of-the-way State Park in a very scenic section of the state. The entrance to the campground is steep, but easily accessible, and relatively flat once you get in. Some sites are back in the tall pines, others are in partial shade. Many of the sites are at odd angles to the access road and might require turning around to back in, but once you get onto the overall layout, it isn't a problem. Roads in the campground are a mixture of stone, gravel or asphalt. There isn't much room to get moving too fast, so it's pretty quiet as State Parks go. The bath house has only one shower for each gender, but is clean and modern. The dump station is a tight squeeze for bigger rigs, but easily doable. This park may use up your rig's turning radius, but it's not so tight you can't maneuver. There cannot be enough said about the opportunities for outdoor adventure in this park. There are some great trails and one is flat and fine gravel which goes on for miles and takes you out to a wildlife viewing area where you may see elk, deer, bear, and almost anything else you can think of. You will not have phone or tv service unless you have a satellite hookup. There is a land line phone in the park at the kiosk which you can dial out on (9 for an outside line) and a store just down the main road with pay phone. We have camped here twice so far and look forward to going again. Great little park! We camped at Sinnemahoning State Park in a Travel Trailer.
