Definitely a campground where it is smart to check out the site you want before you commit. Camp loop roads and sites are asphalt, and most sites are fairly level, though some will require more effort. Size and spaciousness of sites varies quite a bit. Some are in full sun and some have good sun-shade mix. There are a handful of full hook-up sites; the rest are electric only. Grounds are very well kept. Verizon service extremely slow and over-the-air TV antenna only picked up PBS. We camped at Parker Dam State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Very convenient to I-80. Pretty little lake. Swim beach easy drive or bike ride from campground. Nice trails, including to area devastated by 1985 tornado. Value not great, though, because of PA state park pricing system, where they charge you extra for: weekends/holidays, non-resident status, pets (pet loop is $2-3 more per night), having a 2nd car on site, plus the $6 transaction fee whether you reserve ahead of time or as a walk-in).

We were surprised to find the site we had reserved was not big enough despite a phone conversation with someone from the park service. The ranger was helpful in getting us into a proper site. The second site was fine and we enjoyed our stay there. There was a group of tents across from us that left trash all over their site.

Site was mainly level but tight to get into. No vehicles can be on the grass and only one vehicle per site. Guests must park a half mile away. We camped at Parker Dam State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Pay close attention to the length of the pad and make sure you have room for both trailer and vehicle. Not many over 40 feet.

Some of the sites were close together, others offered a little more room. Sites were paved and fairly level with grass. They were doing some construction while we were there so during the week it can be a little noisy. The lake had some really good fishing. Park rangers patrol regularly so they keep it safe and quite. We camped at Parker Dam State Park in a Motorhome.

A little out of the way but very good roads. Mostly level sites. Quiet. Nice post at each site to hang a lantern. Bath house was new and beautiful. Would go there again. We camped at Parker Dam State Park in a Motorhome.

Parker Dam State Park is a few miles north of I-80 between Clearfield and DuBois. This dam was CCC built and there is a small CCC museum. Fishing, boating and lots of hiking tails. Camping sites currently have only electric hookups, but PA is installing full hook-up sites in many of their state parks and they are planned for this park. Campsites are behind the lake with no lake views, but you can walk or bike to the swimming area. Lots of cabin rentals on the "front" side of the lake, but again no lake view. Showers were old but functional and fairly clean. Nearby neighbors were quite loud one time we stayed, but other times have been very quiet. The star of this SP is most definitely the lake. It has a big sandy beach with a swimming area perfect for young children. The area enclosed by the buoys does not exceed 5' depth and the slope is very gradual. There are nearby picnic tables and pavilions and a small snack bar making this an ideal day excursion. The playground is new but no shade there. There is no charge for the daytime use of the lake area. We camped at Parker Dam State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed one night while passing through and this was just about the only campground open in this part of PA in late October. The loop road was narrow which made backing in a bit challenging, but the site was OK. From what we could tell, it seemed like a beautiful park with a nice beach on the lake and the campground was in a very wooded area. Not a lot of privacy, but great for a multi-site group. We were in the pet area, which was about 1/4 of the campground. Our rate reflects the senior discount with the non-PA resident uplift. We camped at Parker Dam State Park in a Motorhome.

State Park is beautiful. CG is more like a parking lot. There are shade trees between sites but little to no privacy from site to site. Site #2 is the nicest site by far. If you go,don't forget a canopy because you will be in the sun some or most of the day. As I said the park is really nice with a clean beach and nice lake. There are some really nice trails for hiking too. We camped at Parker Dam State Park in a Travel Trailer.
