It was a nightmare getting to this park. The gas took us off exit 199 on I-81 and so does the parks own reservation site, but THE ROAD HAS BEEN CLOSED FOR NEARLY A YEAR. We had to back up about a quarter mile to get back onto I-81 because there was no place to turn around. I had called the local office and was told to check I. At the big brown building, but our rig, which they were told was 40' couldn't make the circle by the offices, requiring another backing up and another phone call. We were told that was the correct building but there was another checkin at the campground. I was told with the senior discount it would be $25.50' but when we got there I was charged a$31 after the discount. We checked in on a Thursday afternoon but the ranger charged us for Friday rates because we were leaving on Friday...then said it was a computer glitch and finally agreed with me. She then said it would be $23 and she would bring the refund to our site. A different ranger came with a receipt showing $27 and stood there arguing with me because the lady had made another mistake and asked to see if I "really" had been charged $31....he wouldn't take my word for it. The woman at the gate told me that based on the price of our rig that $31 should seem cheap to us. Anyways, we got to the site and it was nice, but our experience had already been ruined. We camped at Lackawanna State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We camped here over Memorial Day weekend. We had a back in site next to the restroom. They have large deep sinks outside of the restroom so it is easy to wash dishes there. Sites are very shaded and tend to be narrow but no problems to get slides out. Very quiet campground for a holiday weekend. The lake is large and has easy access if you have a boat. Pool was closed at our visit because they are doing repairs to it. This wasn't our first visit here and we will be going back again. We camped at Lackawanna State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This rate reflects a Senior discount (appreciated!) and a $10 change fee when we had to change dates. We were in the loop numbered 1-50, and there were cabins and a yurt. The electric was good, but we would have appreciated water and maybe sewer. The bathrooms were clean. The roads were pretty tight, but they were paved, as were the sites. The sites were heavily wooded, not too level and our loop was not big rig friendly at all. Travel trailer or smaller class C would be OK. TV antenna reception was OK. The park is beautiful, but the campground was pretty empty. but I think they would be busier with water and maybe sewer at the sites. It was good for our overnight and we would stay there again.

The rate reflects senior discount. This is a nice clean Pennsylvania State Park, with paved roads and wide paved sites. There are 3 camping loops, pets are prohibited in the first loop but are allowed in the second and third loop. There are a limited number of 50 amp sites, but the park is heavily wooded likely allowing you to get by with 30 amp service. Your our choice of sites will be greatly enhanced if you can get by with 30 amp service. The sites in the second loop are much more level and more easily backed into than in the third loop. We were placed in site 81 where backing in was not for the faint of heart, and leveling was almost impossible. We did not evaluate the first loop as we travel with pets. As noted, the park is to heavily wooded for satellite access, but we were able to get more than 20 digital HD sites over the air with our small roof top antenna. Recycling bins are available for those who care about the environment. We camped at Lackawanna State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a really nice state park. We stayed here for three nights while visiting relatives in Scranton. The staff were friendly and helpful. We have a 36' RV with a toad and there were several spots that would have worked for us. We spent two nights in the "Maple Lane" loop, but then had to move to "Fox Run" for the last night because Maple Lane was being closed for the season. We preferred Maple Lane because it was quieter and more remote, but Fox Run was nice too. There are lots of great hiking trails, the lake is beautiful and the park is pretty convenient for getting into Clarks Summit, Dunmore, etc. We would stay here again.

Enjoyed a three night stay at the end of August. Sites were nicely shaded and fairly level. Great hiking. We saw lots of wild life including deer at our back door one morning. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Lackawanna State Park in a Travel Trailer.

The campground was about 6 miles off the main highway. Getting there was no problem but it was a bit hilly with narrow, but well maintained roads. Check in was easy and we unhooked our tow car in a big parking lot. One of the few state campgrounds we've visited that had long campsites for 40' and over rigs. I liked the no pets loop we were one. Trees were nice and it was not too busy for a Monday night. Beautiful pool near the lake a short distance away. We enjoyed a campfire and restful evening. It was worth staying there. This was a good one. We may be back. We camped at Lackawanna State Park in a Motorhome.

Really nice. Very shady, which I love. The pool was the largest I've ever seen. The bathrooms were clean. The camping spots were a nice distance apart. I will certainly return. We camped at Lackawanna State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

If you go here in the summer be sure to come armed with loads of bug spray for both your person and the bathroom facilities. I have been in many campgrounds and have never seen this number of mosquitoes! Also, be prepared to pick up garbage left behind by the previous campers. If it wasn't for the bugs and trash, it would be a very lovely campground. I may consider returning in the fall, but never again in the summer. We camped at Lackawanna State Park in a Tent Trailer.

Stayed here over the 4th of July. We usually hate camping when everyone goes to Wal-Mart and buys a tent and heads out for the Holiday, but here we were. The park was packed as expected, and the Rangers did an excellent job as it was quiet and very enjoyable. Staff was outstanding and friendly, and the bathroom in the Maple Lane Loop was spotless. Really nice pool, and huge lake which was great fishing. Definitely will return. We camped at Lackawanna State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Campsites range in size from medium to large depending on the area. Most campsites are paved. Very nice pool and a great lake. Also has boating and hiking trails in park. Pets are allowed in two areas now and these sites are spacious. The Rangers are very nice and are eager to help out. Great place for family gatherings as they have two pavilions that you can rent through their web site. We will be going back. We camped at Lackawanna State Park in a Motorhome.

We only stayed here one night, but we enjoyed the large pool at the park. The sites were large and wooded with a paved pad for the camper. There are only 15 sites that allow dogs which was easy to get midweek but book up quickly on weekend. There's a lovely large lake with boat rentals. We also found a dairy nearby with delicious ice cream! Nice for a couple of nights. We camped at Lackawanna State Park in a Travel Trailer.
