This is a really nice, remote park. Some of the sites are larger than others, and the campground map depicts site size very well. All are wooded. There are some nice hiking trails, and a little lake. The playground is not in the campground, and is across a busy road, which could be a problem if you have children. We camped at Greenwood Furnace State Park in a Travel Trailer.
We love this park! We already have next year booked. This is our second visit in as many years and have had no problems, other than finding the entrance to the campground the first visit. It should be marked better. The whole campground is wooded and nicely laid out on a hillside. The gravel sites are mostly flat, and this year, they had the campground loop road paved. It changes the whole feel of the park for the better. It's quieter, no dust, and the kids can ride scooters and bikes will ease. Sidewalk chalk has become popular, too. The dump station has been upgraded as well, though it could have been laid out with more room. Still, it's very serviceable as it is. he bathhouses were revamped several years ago and remain in very good condition. There are some good hiking trails to explore, as well as lots of great history waiting for campers to uncover, so don't miss the programs at the other park facilities on site which bring alive the history of the iron industry in early America. There is very little to complain about at this park, other than the missing full hookups that all PA State Parks share. We will be back many times!

This is a beautiful state park in a lovely part of Pennsylvania--right near a Amish community. The park was very clean, but empty except for us an a handful of hunters. The bathrooms were very clean, but there is no hot water in the sinks--only in the showers. It has a playground and a lake, though it was too cold for us to use the lake. The sites are very roomy, shady and secluded. I think a fifth wheel or other big rig might have to choose a site carefully to make sure they could fit. We didn't have a problem, though we had to put blocks under one wheel to level. We camped at Greenwood Furnace State Park in a Tent Trailer.
Price $14-19. Very nice state park and cg. Sites are level, wooded and very large. Fill
your water tank at the available hydrants before setting up. They do not have a pool but they have a lake that you can swim in or fish. They have bath house and large picnic area as well. Also have good fishing streams (trout) and great hiking trails. This was an old iron furnace. Some of the structures are still present. There are markers around giving the history of the area. Small amount of road noise at the lower numbered sites. Definitely not a show stopper. We will definitely return. Park is actually closer to Lewistown.

Great little park. The cg is almost totally wooden. The shower house is new. Located
overlooking a stream. There is a lake available for summer swimming. Some of the original iron furnace structures are still there. Great hiking. Stone Valley Vista Loop Trail gives a great view of the area. Trout fishing is mostly natives but they're in there. Fish at the Seeger Nature Area. Take a picnic. Most structures are new.
