7 Parks near Emporium, Pennsylvania
Aug 2015 - $25.00
We agree with the above review would like to add that only electric at each site, water bibs spaced along the road, sewer dump station. FREE fire wood, small stream running through sites, free swimming pool, play grounds for the kids. The best nature you could ask for. No Wi-Fi or cell service at park you will have to go into Emporium 6 +/- miles away to get either. Deer, Bear & Elk sightings if you are quite plus they have an Elk viewing area just a short drive from the park. The area is perfect if you love nature. - Joe-Sandy

This is a very quiet , scenic campground in a real wilderness area. There are well over 200,000 acres of state forest here. A great place for hikers and seeing wildlife with Elk, Bear, Deer and just about anything else that roams the PA wilds. Not much to do in the area but if you want to get back to nature this is it. - GDM

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. - Dave F

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! - Naturelvr

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! - mosseater

A nice family oriented facility located one mile down a narrow dirt road. The sites are close together and there are lots of seasonals. The staff was friendly and while the campground was nearly deserted on the weekday we were there the weekends are reported to be very crowded and reservations are recommended. - Desert Captain

From what we understand, new owners took over here a few yrs ago. Its a modest little CG in the middle of "God's country". The owners are SUPER friendly, and obviously try very hard to keep it up. Although it doesn't have a pool or a lot of on site activities, there are various family friendly activities on weekends. There is not a lot to do in the general vicinity, and there is no cell service for miles, so this is the place to go and get away from it all, literally. We were reluctant not to having sewage hookups, but the "honey wagon" came anytime you needed it. - blondieemtp

Big grassy sites few shade trees. Limited 50 amp sites. Pick a site and pay at the store in town. Nothing fancy here but it is nice, quiet, and peaceful. We also enjoyed eating at the store cafe and talking to the locals. We were in town to see the elk and while we did not see them in the campground, we saw them up in the elk viewing areas way up on the hill. We enjoyed our stay and will be back in the fall. - houseonwheels

This is one of the nicest campgrounds we have visited. This park is very well maintained. It offers a pool, putt putt golf, special weekend events throughout the summer, fishing, tubing, playground and pet area where pets run free. They have camping cabins and campsites along the Allegheny River which flows through the property. They are restoring vintage campers to place in an area for rental also. This place is a great weekend getaway for the family. It is also a nice overnight stop.
Some sites are gravel. Most are grass. Each has a picnic table and fire ring. They have full hookup, electric and water sites and tent sites. Price varies with services and location. We were right on the river. It was very pleasant and relaxing after driving all day.
They have two dump stations for those not on full hookups.
The owners are very friendly and experienced campground owners. We would stay here again.
The only negative I heard from anyone was the highway traffic noise. I thought it was very minimal as the highway is lightly traveled. Other than a passing truck occasionally, I didn't notice it at all. Very quiet at night. - petendoll

Clean. Friendly. Easy in and out. Good roads. Lots of level, long and grassy pull thru sites. The trees in the pull thru sites are fairly new so there is little shade at this point. Good WiFi and cell service. I did not give it a 10 due to no antenna TV channels available. Altho that is not their fault. I would definitely return. I did notice that the tent sites are a long walk from the showers. There is a porta potty in the tent area. - camper19709

This is a family owned and operated campground and it is clear that they are proud of it. It is a beautiful setting. All of it was clean and well maintained. They try to run fun activities for children every weekend. It is not a 10 only because the pull-through sites are short of shade (trees are planted - so give it a few years) and those pull-though sites only have 30 amp service. Their online site will tell you that long before you get there. Bicycles and kids all over, but never enough to be annoying. The fact that many sites have seasonal clients should tell you something. If we are ever looking for a stop in this area, we would choose this one. We stayed there as a part of a small rally. We paid for and got some extra service that was excellent, but that is not included in this evaluation. - Matt_C

We were here on business. The campground itself is clean and well maintained. Unfortunately, upon arrival we found that the park has zero cell reception...I mean zero for all mobile carriers. You have to travel 30 minutes into town to get any type of even a roaming signal. That wouldn't be a big deal if the "wifi" they claim they have actually works. Now, if you're here to just take in wildlife, escape and be "off the grid" to all family and friends - then this is your place! But, if you want to be able to stay in touch with family, etc... Forget it. There's NOTHING to keep you connected with the world. I found the owners to be very nice and accommodating (other than the internet). The sites are all grass and can get a little muddy with lots of rain, but for the most part they are level and the grass is well maintained. The park was quiet during the week, a little more rowdy on the weekends, especially with the festivals going on. The view of the PA Hyner Mountains are GORGEOUS and almost make up for the lack of contact with the outside world, almost... - jlgpipe

This is a beautiful campground, family owned and operated. We came here for work, owners are very nice and really go out of their way to make your stay everything you want it to be. While we were there they had a Blue Grass Festival, a motocross race and we are looking forward to KC Music Festival in august. This campground is clean and very well maintained, clean bathrooms and showers. It is in the boonies and you probably won't have cell service, but do you want to be bothered with the phone when your camping? There is all kinds of wildlife from deer, bear, fox and all the normal little cute critters. I love this place and would absolutely stay here again, I have found PA to be the most beautiful state and Quiet Oaks Campground has captured its beauty so all can enjoy it. So if you hate green grass, beautiful trees and the quiet relaxing camping, stay away cause all that and more is here. - gypsysoul

Our rate was based on stay of eight nights. We stayed over July 4th weekend. Level site, plenty long for our 60' rig and wide due to trees separating our site (not all sites as wide). The site we had allowed us to get our satellite dish aimed but we had very little Verizon access for our phones or internet (air card). The only downside for us was the dust...being a holiday weekend, the park was packed...with ATVers and the amount of dust from them was staggering. Would have been nice to have the road watered daily to help out. Would have been a nine rating then. Great location for exploring the area...we ride motorcycles and we never lacked for good riding. - Froggi Donna

Very nice park. There was only one other couple staying here this weekend. Looked like they were seasonal. Very quiet of course, and the bathrooms and shower rooms were VERY clean and spacious. A friend recommended this CG, and I am glad they did. We will stay here again. On another note: we checked in about 5pm, the owners were gone for the night and left a note to check-in tomorrow. We never did hook up. When we got home, they finally called and we paid for our site. I was a little worried, but they weren't. Very nice lady. Lots were spacious, room between the sites and they had nice picnic tables and fire rings. We only used the water/electric sites, but they do offer full hookups and there was easy access to a pump station: which is always appreciated. - Ohiojude

This park is right across the road from a restraurant. The park is neat and clean. The owners are friendly. There is a snowmobile/ATV trail adjacent to the park. The park rents ATV's. There is no Cingular cell phone service. You have to go to the center of Coudersport to obtain a cell phone signal. We have stayed in this park several times. - JoeGin2
