15 Parks near Tioga, Pennsylvania

Our second stop here and it will be our last. Loud music, yelling and general party atmosphere with no regard to the 11pm quiet hour. We were in the front pull-through area (really, a big field with no shade) and the loud party seemed over at the clubhouse, some distance away. Parking was confusing and generally we didn't enjoy our stay at all, especially considering the price. No thanks, we'll choose somewhere else next time. - 2ColliesInACan

Spent one night. Site was pretty level. Staff were friendly. Park was clean. Mostly seasonal a but separate area for short term. We camped in the open field to the west of the railroad tracks. - Hartleyfam

This is a very spacious park with two different sides. One side is on the hill, very wooded, dirt roads but nice shade. There are a few RVs deeply entrenched here...must be full timers. On the other side, there are large slots in a fairly flat field with little shade. A train actually cuts through the campground but with few trains and just one in the night. The staff is friendly and there is a nice pool. The bathroom and showers and laundry need an updating but they are clean. The campground is well located to visit Corning and Watkins Glen. - Solem8s

Nice COE campground that is located near the lake. The campground is but most are open. Our site was level and we were able to connect our satellite to DirecTV. AT&T service was good in the park. There is a small beach with a swimming area. Lots of roads within the park that are paved and great for bike riding. Several hiking trails within the park. We had FHU and everything worked well. Park is well maintained and RV sites have some space between them. - Co-Mike

Campsites are large with concrete pads, fire ring, table and lantern hook on gravel. Grass is well groomed and all facilities worked well. Half the bathhouses have showers and they are old and the only thing that needs to be updated in the park. Aspen and Hickory loops have sewer. Great marina and boat ramp and lots of boat and fishing activity on Hammond Lake. Good shopping and restaurants in Wellsboro as well as the PA grand canyon only 11 miles west of the park. There is a train excursion that runs on the weekends and last 1 1/2 hours. There is a day use area for swimming and a playground. - Grayhound

Very nice COE park. Had a 50A/W site. FHU sites are farther back from the waterfront.
Restrooms clean with newish COE layouts. Nice showers. Plenty of hot water.
Park was moderately busy for mid-October. Hosts were helpful. Strongly recommend advance reservations. Required for arriving after normal business hours.
Campground is open with trees. Sites are moderately close to each other, but sufficient distance for privacy.
Not much in the immediate area except the lake. Supplies are a drive into Mansfield or Corning, NY.
We will be back. Great place for a relaxing weekend or week.
Note - we were there in October, in the middle of the summer with the CG full, it might be a different experience. - PawPaw

This is a terrifically fun park for the kids. We camped here as our last stop on a 10-day camping trip and the kids did not want to leave. The facility has too many things to mention for the kids to do and all are included in the fee which seemed a little high until you see what you get with it. The rest rooms and showers were well-kept and the park was packed when we visited. The only negatives for me was the park gets very crowded to the point that you feel that there is not enough space between campers. Most of the sites were deep and narrow, not real ideal. We ended up with a site that had the sewer for our neighbor about 15' from our door. Not a huge deal, but would have preferred a little separation. And the roads are gravel so don't bother washing and waxing before coming here as you'll be leaving dirty. But that was the only negatives I could think of from a wonderful stay. My kids want to know when we are going back and I can't blame them. - tdslsmo

This park came highly recommended. However we booked it for 5 days and left on the 2nd day. This park was very run down and in great need of updates. The sites are way too close together, the neighbors septic hookup is only 1 foot away from our picnic table which is right up against our camper!! Our septic hookup was right beside our neighbors table. Although there is lots for kids to do the play grounds are in bad need of repair. There was tons of trash all over and there was no stone or grass on our site. Everywhere I looked there was mud. We will never come back here again. I can honestly say that this is the worst un-kept campground that we have ever been to. - emtjewel

Very old, needs some serious updates. We started our weekend back on site 48. It would have been ok for a 20' camper, not our 30'. It was very tight, muddy, low hanging branches. The hook-ups were a joke. I ask the clerk if I could possibly move the next morning, and they were kind enough to let me move. Our next site was #69. Bigger, more room, nicer site by the playground and pool. We liked this site. The only problem was the large gravel covering the entire site. Pretty hard on the dog's feet. The campground was good for the kids. However, we will not be returning here. - knoxcamper

Sites and roads are a little tight. The main entrance area is also a bit confusing. The main office is nestled in the campground not at the front of the park. Make sure you get directions from the main office or you will be taking some scary dirt roads if you follow your gps or smart phone.
The amenities are fine, nothing really to complain about. It's just a bit rustic. Everything could use a new coat of paint, but it wasn't dirty...just needs a bit of updating.
There is not a ton to do locally after you spend some time looking at the PA Grand Canyon (it's pretty) and maybe drive around to antique. I don't think I would go back, not because of the campground, but more because there isn't a lot to do in the area. - 4njcampers

We love the Wellsboro area, and this was our third visit to Canyon Country Campground. The campground is small, rustic, and privately-owned, which is nice since you get personalized attention from owners and their dog Misty. The whole campground is heavily wooded, which increases the sense of privacy, although (as with most campgrounds) you cannot reserve a specific site and you are placed on the smallest site that will accommodate your rig, even if larger sites are available. This time around we were placed on site 3, which accommodated our 26' travel trailer well enough, but required creative parking in order to fit my truck on the site as well. We wound up having to squeeze the truck in along the front edge of the trailer and at the very edge of the woods, which didn't leave us any room to walk around the entire truck. I saw other campers park their tow vehicles perpendicularly at the rear of their sites. The sewer pipe is the non-threaded type, so you will need either a rubber sewer hose seal, or use some of the plentiful rocks to weigh down the fitting end. Also, the sewer hose is mid-site, and my RV drain is at the rear of my rig, and this particular site is un-level enough that my sewer hose had to run uphill from my camper to the pipe. I remedied this by placing more rocks under my sewer hose support to get the hose more level, but I still had to manually lift the hose along its length as I was emptying the tanks. There is no cable TV here. Our antenna didn't pick up any channels, and we had very weak cellular service (although there is a pay phone by the office!). Wi-Fi is available only in close proximity to the office, and the network is password protected. The rate chart says that only the first hour is free, but the owner told us that the policy is in place just to keep kids from hogging all the bandwidth, and that he wouldn't charge us if we went over an hour (we wound up not using it anyway). Speaking of kids, there is very little for them to do here... except to actually, you know, CAMP. The "playground" is very small, and the game room houses only a pool table and an air hockey table. But there is a nice trail that you can use to hike to Leonard Harrison State Park and the edge of the "Grand Canyon" which we love taking our dogs on (takes us about 15-20 minutes). We didn't use the bathrooms or showers, but I did check them out and they looked very clean. There is also a laundry and dish washing station available. This is our go-to place when we visit the area, and we look forward to returning. - gmanfan1966

Very nice campground. Shaded settings give a sense of privacy. Bath and shower house was clean and worked well. Owners were very friendly and helpful in every way. Was pleased to see that quiet hours were enforced. One group nearby was a little loud in the evenings but the nightly patrol at the start of quiet hours ensured that quiet time was respected and there was no problem later in the night. I was glad to see that. - jrwalkerpa1

Sites are very shady with most being located in the trees. Our site had the electric/water hookups on the top of a mound while the sewer was located close to the site. The patio/picnic table/fire ring was located up the side of a hill behind the site. There is a small swimming area in the park on the lake. Roads in the park are tight but manageable. At&T service was OK but we were unable to use our rooftop satellite dish because of the trees. One long hiking trails runs along the lake although its not very well maintained in parts of it. Not close to any grocery stores. We did not get on the lake but it looked very nice. - Co-Mike

The price listed includes a 50% Senior Pass discount. Tompkins is a beautiful campground located along Cowanesque Lake with fairly large sites that are nicely separated from the neighboring sites. Some areas have trees and bushes separating the sites for privacy, while others are in more open areas. The water, 20/30/50 amp electric, and sewer connections were well located on our back-in site (site #3) requiring a minimum of hoses and cord. Water pressure and voltage were both well within acceptable ranges. The sites have a paved RV driveway and a packed gravel area for the picnic table and fire pit. The boat launch and swimming areas are well laid out, and easily accessible. There's a 4 mile long maintained hiking trail with some good views of the lake and benches for resting along the way. The only downside we found that keeps this location from getting a 10 rating is the poor to non-existent cell signal for all carriers. That's not the campground's fault of course, but something to be aware of. We would definitely camp here again. - NYDutch

This is a great campground! Sites are very well laid out, with only a couple of exceptions in the Knoll loop. I had a site overlooking the lake this trip and it was really nice. Quiet campers all around, although as it was early June and the park was not full. The only thing detracting from the campground is the road noise from the road on the other side of the lake. It's not a problem at night though. That's the only reason I don't give it a 10. - Pickycamper

Sign, sign, everywhere a sign..... As you drive through the park to get to your site, there's a sign about every 15 feet warning you to slow down and other rules of the park. I can imagine during a fully packed park, being careful as you drive around since there are lots of children running about, that safety would take precedence. But the warning and caution signage makes you feel like you are constantly being watched.
Campground was close to the Wellsboro area and the staff was helpful. If I were staying in this area, I'd look into a different campground. - techieguy

This campground was known for problems in past years. New ownership cleaned it up. I liked the campground but felt the seasonal campers acted like they owned the place and weekenders were not welcome. I've been camping a long time and this is the only campground I had something stolen while camping. Needs to remove seasonal campers who think they own the place & might be a suitable campground. But if you don't have a $40,000 camper expect to be treated like dirt by the permanent campers who do. - DQRhodes

Very nice park. Friendly staff, clean. Mostly seasonal/annual sites but those we met were very friendly. Road coming in to campground was a bit bumpy but we made it with no problem with our RV. We would stay here again. - Ed Mazz

The camp host/motel manager was very amicable. The road into the campground was composed of gravel needing some grading and low hanging trees. Unfortunately our entrance of bottom scraping and tree branch slapping did not impress us and damaged our RV. We were assigned site 9. The site was grass and gravel with full hook-ups. All other uninhabited sites were grass only. The water at our site was a light rust color and smelled strongly of iron. The campground is located behind the motel on a very green and lush looking hill, making for difficult leveling of our motorhome. Our children (ages 6 and 4 1/2 ) were not interested in the dilapidated playground. In general, the campground was very private and we pretty much had it to ourselves. I would not recommend this campground to any motorhome owner due to the difficulty getting in or out without damage. - TnCBurns

This campground was very nice. The bathrooms were very clean and had recently been remodled. The owner was very helpful and check in with us to make sure we found everything. I would have given it a 10 but the hookups were in the middle of our two sites and you had to have two sewer hoses to reach. Other than that it was a great place to camp. We will be camping there again and I would recommend it to anyone. - Tweety Girl

Ed and Carmen are great hosts. Ed recommended great local places to eat.
The sites were level and had great satellite reception. The area for the seasonals was very neat and clean. I wish they had some 50 amp service, and would be glad to pay extra for it, but the price is a good value for every thing you get. - johnwadams

Carmen end Ed, the owners have been very helpful with our group of 9 rigs. Check in is efficient and thorough. Gravel drive ways to the camp sites are well maintained. Site access is easy with wider than usual pull through sites. There are also many backin sites. Some sites are shaded, some are not. There are pleasant playgrounds for children, a clean swimming pool, and even 10 horse shoe areas. We enjoyed use of one of the roofed shelters. We would stay again. - Toby's dad

The host could not have been nicer, telling us about the Corning Museum and directing us to an Auto Zone in Corning. The back-in site was pretty level, on grass but in the open so we could use our satellite dish. Mostly seasonal stays but a lot of overnighters. Very quiet and clean. - norm scherer

Has large, level, grassy sites. Great pool. Poor utilities and terribly slow WiFi (if at all). Good family campground with lots of kid's activities. Decent laundry with 4 machines. - dotr

Horrible Water! Had to change a brand new whole house filter after I left! Visibly dirty with lots of sediment. Lots of low hanging branches. Asked the staff to trim very low branches hanging over dump station. They said they would but never did. - toddmcc

Would give it a higher rating but no cell or internet service. Mostly level sites. Some a little hard to get into with a big rig. Great dump station and fresh water setup. Nice bath house. Shares parking lot with the main canyon visitor center. Gift shop and education center. The place to go and stay if you want to see the canyon. I would go there again. - camper19709

Leonard Harrison state part has a rather small campground. A campground map is available from the Pennsylvania State Parks web site. All non-electric sites are among trees. Sites 12, 14, and 19 are among some tall pine trees and are great for hammocks. The electric sites (except for 23 and 25) are in the open. Avoid site 6, it is right next to the pathway to the bath house. The bath house is fairly new. There is only one shower in each of the men's and women's rooms. There is a family rest room that also has an accessible shower. - kanling

This small state park is reached via some narrow and hilly roads out of Wellsboro. There are only about 6 sites with 30 amp service, and the rest are dry camping sites. The rate shown is for an electric site with a senior discount (do not need to be PA resident for the discount). There is one bathhouse for the campers. Sites were on grass and our site was a convenient pull-through. In early June, the area was quiet and very laid back. The developed overlook with views into the canyon is free and spectacular. This is an excellent spot to stay while bicycling (or hiking) the 60+ mile long Pine Creek rail-trail in the bottom of the canyon. We biked to a couple of pretty villages in the bottom on a stone dust trail. We enjoyed our stay and wouldn't mind staying again sometime. - Jay Rutherford
