We have camped at many state parks, in multiple states, and rank this at the very top. The facilities are well maintained, recreational opportunities abound, the hiking trails are abundant, scenic and well marked, there is a high level of security, and the park is both child-friendly and pet-friendly. We stayed in a cabin and, while the cabin is designated as being "rustic," it included a modern stove and refrigerator, a dining table with seating for 6, an outdoor covered porch, a fireplace, and a modern, private bathroom and shower. We hope to visit again many times. We camped at Promised Land State Park in a Campground Cabin.

We overnighted here on our way to New England, we had a pull through with electric in Beechwood loop. Site was crushed stone & a bit unlevel, but got level fairly easily. Most sites in this loop were paved but pretty short back-ins, more suited to pop ups & other small towables. Loop is mostly wooded with no OTA signal. While we didn't use the Bath/Shower facilities we did check them out, they were very clean & modern. The dump station is a nice double site with no waiting. If we are ever in the area again we will stay here. We camped at Promised Land State Park in a Motorhome.

This review is for the new full hookup sites at the Pickerel Point Campground. One of the few (only?) PA State Park campgrounds with full hookups. Very nice area. Sites partly shaded along the lake. Some sites are waterfront, all are within a short walk. Nice swimming beach at the end of the point. Very nice new bathhouses. No cell service, if that is a concern. Boat rental, good fishing and many hiking opportunities in the area. Camp hosts and rangers were very helpful when we needed to call tire service and didn't have cell reception. We would stay here again. We camped at Promised Land State Park in a Motorhome.

Beautiful park with the leaves changing. We were on site 135, a back in on the lake. Site was gravel but impossible to get level unless I lifted the rear tires off the ground. Couldn't even get close to level. Good power(50amp), water pressure, and easy sewer hook-up. Restrooms were very clean. Verizon was adequate, no OTA TV, nor was satellite available because of trees. Even though we enjoyed the beauty, probably would not return because of the level issue. We camped at Promised Land State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed in the Pickerel Point campground area and had a full hookup site. Roads were paved and sites were gravel. Showers and bathrooms were very clean and cleaned daily, also had outside wash sinks for dishes. Rangers made rounds every so often. Beach was very nice and had sand toys for the kids to play with during the weekend. Site we had said it would fit up to a 40' motorhome, but it was on a grade coming off the road. Site was pretty level side to side. AT&T service was pretty much nonexistent. No over the air channels were found for TV. There are also boat rentals on the other side of the lake and there are plenty of trails for the avid hiker. No playground in this area as of now, but they were taking donations at the office to add one. Very nice walk-in tent sites on the lake and nice programs on the weekends for the kids in the amphitheater. We will definitely be back! We camped at Promised Land State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Stayed in the Lower Lake Campground which was nearly empty. Usually is packed at this time of year, but was very quiet and relaxing. This park is the crown jewel in Pennsylvania's State Park System. Staff is very friendly and Rangers patrolled frequently. We camped at Promised Land State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Wonderful place with good size sites, although 20 miles from the Interstate. Only one drive through that we saw. Lots of easy walking trails allow you to wander about the Park. Good facilities and friendly staff/wardens. Beware - a lot of poison Ivy if you get off the trails. We camped at Promised Land State Park in a Motorhome.

One of the best kept "secrets" off the Interstate. A lovely wooded setting on the lake. One of our favorite "on-the-way" one night stops as we are headed from Virginia to New England. An early CCC camp with a variety of sites and small cabins. We'll be back, again and again. We camped at Promised Land State Park in a Travel Trailer.

BEWARE OF BACK-INS! When we arrived, we were shown a diagram of the Northwoods Camping Area that looked like back-ins on both sides of the loop access road. We chose an outside site(460)for our 32 foot fiver. When we got there, the access road was narrow and had deep ditches on both sides, severely limiting maneuverability. We are 15 year full-timers, had never been unable to access a back-in before this one! About half of the outside back-ins have this problem. Sign in staff should have been able to advise us not to put our fiver in that site. We were surprised to find the the inside sites between the access road loops are pull-throughs. Lovely campground with large, well spaced sites. Credit cards accepted. Some leveling required. Picnic tables & fire rings. Ten channel Broadcast TV. Strong 4G Verizon signal. Deluxe restrooms have handicapped access and a small room with washer and dryer. Recycling: Environmentally handicapped; beverage can and bottle recycling only. We camped at Promised Land State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here two years in a row and got the same site (24) both times. Pickerel point has full hookups. I feel the price is kind of high for a State Park, especially if only staying overnight, in the middle of the week. Roads are paved, site are level gravel. Restroom and shower are new and very clean. Would recommend to other travelers and will stay again when in area. We camped at Promised Land State Park in a Motorhome.

With the reopening of the Pickerel Point and Deerfield campgrounds, this park now has just about every type of campsite you can think of. Pickerel Point has electric and water; some WE&S sites and even water front tent sites, but they were full on this weekend so we camped in the Deerfield campground. No hookups in Deerfield but if you like being in the woods with peace and quiet, this is a great spot. All the sites are gravel and big. Some of the sites are a little off level but not so much that you will struggle leveling your camper. With the way it is laid out and the size of the sites, you would not feel crowded here even if it were full. We saw two bears and three racoons in 2 nights here. We camped at Promised Land State Park in a Tent Trailer.

We stayed in a pull-through site in Beechwood. Very narrow roads for big rigs and trees were not trimmed back well. All the sites are paved EXCEPT the pull throughs which are dirt/gravel/grass. Most sites are semi-level and short. Will not accommodate over about 30ft unless you are able to hang off the back of the site. The pull throughs while long are not very level. There are only three water faucets in this area so you need to come with a full water tank or be prepared to take a hike to fill your water containers. The dump station is across the main road by the boat launch. The bathrooms were clean and nicely set up for handicap accessibility. There was also a family (or companion) shower/toilet room for those needing extra assistance. Very shady sites so don't expect satellite to work. There is NO Verizon coverage in this area. Very quiet and the ranger told us bear have been spotted in the area and to be very careful with food and pets outside. Nothing for kids, no pool or playground. All you really get for $29 is 50 amp electric and a not very level site. Just too expensive a park for electric only. We camped at Promised Land State Park in a Motorhome.

Nice quiet park. There are areas for fishing and canoeing, some trails. We made our reservation on-line indicating we had a 5th wheel 34' motorhome. Upon arrival, our site was very small and we had to switch to a pull through which was fine. Suggest that you call to check with staff before booking on-line. Bathrooms and showers were very clean and maintained. Two of the loops were a little overgrown with weeds, but this would not deter me from staying here again.

This time we stayed in the lower lake campground . It was clean, quiet, and very scenic with the fall foliage. Just a note to other campers, the Pickerel Point and Deerfield campground will reopen for 2012 and the rehab work they did there is outstanding. This park will now have 4 campgrounds all of which are beautiful. We camped at Promised Land State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a spectacular campground, one of the four campgrounds (Beechwood) has paved sites which is great if it's raining, the other three offer a little more privacy. We visited after Labor Day and had the entire place virtually to ourselves. Wonderful hiking trails and a very helpful staff. Try to avoid arriving on I-94, the road is pretty rough. PA Route 390 into the park is nice and smooth. We camped at Promised Land State Park in a Travel Trailer.
