4 RV Parks near Philipsburg, Pennsylvania
May 2018 - $35.00
One of our favorite Pennsylvania State Parks! Very clean with updated bathrooms. Some full hook up sites. Rangers have activities on the weekends. Free pontoon boat rides in the morning by the ranger. Nice lake for kayaking. Very nice camp store that serves food and ice cream. You can walk to everything from the campground. - Minniewinniefor4

Full hookups available. Sites were large with ample space between campers. Could only get a cell phone signal standing in the road and it was still weak. Picked up NO TV stations with RV antenna.
Lake had limited shore fishing due to lily pads. Trout streams were very shallow when we went. Site 46 is across from T in the road, so at night headlights shined into campsite often. - direwolf2001

This was our first trip to this park and it was well worth it. The campground is nice with almost all sites having at least partial shade. Some sites are a little too close together for our liking, but not many. The campground and beach have modern, clean restrooms and showers and each shower house also has coin-op laundry. There are a good number of pet sites and, from what we saw, there are no restrictions on where pets may be walked in the campground. The beach and campground store, which also serves some food, are within walking distance of the campground. The sandy beach is well maintained, having been combed each morning during our stay. There are no lifeguards on duty at any time. The park has quite a few trails, but the only one we walked was the bog trail. That is part trail, part boardwalk along the lake shore and through the sphagnum moss bogs which surround the lake and give its water a "weak tea" look. As another reviewed said, the road coming into the park is narrow and steep with one especially sharp turn. But, the park is in the mountains of north-central Pennsylvania! The road coming from Philipsburg and RT 322 is much better than Beaver Road from US 220. We will definitely be back to this state park! - JEH412

This campground is a former KOA and is close to I-80 but I don't think we could hear the traffic at all. There are several pull-through sites tiered on a hill as well as a number of longer term back in sites plus many seasonal spots in the trees on the north side of the campground. Our pull-through site was level and utilities convenient. The WiFi was good. The primary feature is a small, but pretty lake that is filled with bluegill. The campground has fishing gear to loan to anyone who wants to get in of the fun. On Saturday the campground was full and there were activities for campers of all ages with wagon rides, a corn-hole contest, and other events. Then, since we were still close to Independence Day there was a fireworks show over the lake. I had no problem getting my satellite TV signal and my Verizon data was good. - nazpaz

This is a smaller park. All sites are on a slight hill, but the sites themselves are nearly level. Sites are gravel with some grass. A lot of the sites are buddy sites where you are awning to awning with your neighbor so, unless you are camping with a friend, it could be a little awkward. Pond was clean and bluegill were easy to catch. Dog park was clean. Water was probably the best we've experienced, no odor or off color. There is a nice hiking trail in the woods around the grounds. - JillaRoo

We stayed at this park overnight, and were pleased we chose it. The owners live at the campground, and were very nice and helpful. It is convenient to the interstate, but very quiet. Our site was level , and was very well set up. The facilities were well thought out, and the roads were easy to navigate. Great dog park. We would definitely stay there again. - northern ranger

We could not get a site at Prince Gallitzin State Park, so we opted to stop here and see if they had any sites available. The staff was very welcoming and provided us with a choice of some spots to park with 30 amp service. There are several places to dry-camp and they have potable water and a dump station in the park. The camp ground has mostly year-round residents and a few park models, but was close to a small ice cream stand, mini-golf and pizza shop as well as a horse riding stable. The sites are wooded and other campers that we met were very friendly. It's not fancy, but will do in a pinch! - sfedeli

Lots of repeat visitors stay here regularly. Most seem to be from not too far away. A very family-oriented state park campground. Lots of kids on bikes. Some sites have trail cut-throughs not on the map (i.e. 325 White Oak). The attraction of the park is the large lake and associated boating and beaches. Campground has its own beach. Camp store is very good. - kanling

We stayed here twice this year so far. It has become our favorite campground. It's an hour away from home. Majority of sites have only electric, but they did add 20 or so, full hook up sites last year. We've only done 2 long weekends and electric only was fine. Would want full hookup if we were here for a week.
Dump and water stations are located just as you pull in with an additional fill up station just past the camp store. We only use the centrally located bath houses to shower, but find them clean. The showers are a little hot for my taste. You cannot adjust temperature, it's just a button that turns water on.
The sites we've been on so far are so level that I didn't need any blocks what so ever, just under stabilizers. Site is a paved back in with gravel and grass around picnic table and fire ring.
Lots of trails, bike baths, and nature walks daily. Beach was hardly crowded on a hot 90 degree day. Everyone we met was very friendly.
Camp host was seen several times picking up any litter. Park Rangers constantly patrol the campground which was nice.
Store sales pretty much everything, ice, firewood, groceries, etc. They deliver the firewood to your camp site if you purchase it there.
Good fishing for kids just past the beach area. Small fish but the kids love catching fish constantly. They also have boat rentals but we found them to be pretty steep in price unless you split with a group. Pontoon rental was $200 for the day or $50/hr. If you have your own boat there is a boat launch area just for campers but you will have to park your trailer in the visitor/2nd car parking area. I did see 3 sites that have additional parking for 2nd vehicles and or a boat. There are a few rustic tent only sites along with water front cabins available for rent.
Lots of people walking or riding bikes until dusk. Once quiet time hits, all you hear is crickets. Was very quiet considering the amount of campsites. - Newman252

Camped on July 4th week end. Big Mistake!!! The park is like the Disney World of PA State campgrounds. Every oversized diesel pick up with oversized exhaust pipes and Harley's cruising though at all hours. Speeding through. People burning their trash and making noise all night. Kids I don't mind, we have 4 grown up now but, parents still need to control them. Multitudes of pontoon boats lining the marinas. And the camper store is like 7/11 and Walmart combined. DCNR gated until after 10 then gone, wide open. Told about fireworks prohibition but 7/3 was cracking all night with no one to control. Not a park to enjoy,more like a motel parking lot at the Jersey shore. Only good thing is location to Altoona area sites and if you do have a lake boat for fishing. - Kennest
