15 Parks near Wellsboro, Pennsylvania

Rated this park low since we had trouble getting in & out of the park, along with having a problem with the roads within our camping loop. The main entrance to the park has a bridge with a 10 ton limit so we had to take a back route into the park over unpaved county roads. Once we got to our site we were able to back in with minimal issues to a large shady site. The road leading out of our site was twisting with trees close to the curves. The last curve we barely made it past a tree. I ended up having to cut some branches off of a tree to avoid scratching the sides of our motorhome. The park itself is nice. There is a small lake in the middle with a hiking trail around the water. Several spots to launch canoes or kayaks. On our site were were able to get a satellite signal along with a weak AT&T signal (using a booster it was OK). Strange numbering system for sites with missing "numbers" along the way; so be careful or you will drive past your site. DEFINITELY not big rig friendly. We would not use this campground again in our large rig. - Co-Mike

Very nice spacious sites. Great fishing. I've been here 3 times this summer. Nice park. Nice bathrooms. Patrolled by Rangers well & never a problem. Good State Park Camping. - DQRhodes

Clean, heated bath house, with very good water pressure in showers. Campground is on a nice lake, and sites are level. We had a quiet, grass with gravel site. - LTV camper

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

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

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

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

This is on the west rim of the PA Grand Canyon . It is a beautiful area here . The thing about this campground is it just as the CCP left it in the 1930"s . Very rustic and pretty . A great place for hiking and tent camping too . - GDM

We enjoyed our long weekend here. It is a very nice clean campground.The owners were nice and friendly. Our site was a large grassy area that was level and easy to back into. The restrooms were clean. The store was stocked with a little of everything and had good prices. There were no planned activities for children at the time of our stay. The cable was great and so was the Wi-fi. It is about a 10 minute drive to the town of Wellsboro. We will stay there again I am sure. - joinpa

Lovely little gem in the middle of nowhere. We were actually looking for another park, but when we passed by Twin Streams we decided to turn around and go back. Glad we did. This place is kept up really well: even the Seasonal Sites were in great shape. The managers were most gracious and let us pick our own spot, based on our needs. We chose a site in the middle of the wide open green grass. I felt like I was in a giant park. A few trees in the middle grassy area which gave us a little shade as the sun was setting. We were just passing through. Wished we could have stayed longer. - mauigirl7254

Campground had a lot of seasonal sites. We were parked next to a seasonal site. Campers arrived at their site next to us around 8pm. Split firewood for about 15 minutes in pouring rain, then, set outside with family under canopy with campfire and played loud music until 11pm. They fixed things around their camper, banged & clanged until about midnight before going in. Problem is, no one in office to complain about noise because of the lateness. Quiet time is 11pm until 8am. Also, paved roads, but no stoned or paved pads, your unit parks in the grass. It poured rain the entire evening. Owner was very polite & helpful when we arrived, but we would not stay there again. - 99Chevy

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
