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. We camped at Canyon Country Campground in a Travel Trailer.

I enjoyed our stay here. It was a nice, very quiet campground. We had a spacious back-in sight that had ample room for our 37 foot rig. The roads were a bit tight, but manageable. The escort proved to be very helpful in navigating the roads, and his assistance in directing us as we backed in was appreciated. Wi-Fi reception was pretty bad, as was the cell voice and 4G data signal. There was no cable TV available, and there also was no over the air TV signal either - might want to bring some movies if TV is important to you. Campground personnel were pleasant and helpful. Grounds and facilities were both well maintained. Location was very convenient to the PA Grand Canyon (although the hiking trail to the canyon seemed longer than the advertised 3/4 mile). We camped at Canyon Country Campground in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Canyon Country Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed here during a time when the campground was pretty empty. We were in site 2. Much of the trees had their leaves fallen, so the campsite was fairly open in that you could see other sites/campers pretty easily. Facilities (restrooms, showers, laundry) were perfect in cleanliness, availability and functioning. The campsite has access to great camping into a state park and down into the Canyon. The hosts were very helpful in hiking options and options for restaurants in town. The town of Wellsboro is very quaint and worth a visit for at least a dinner. We would gladly return and stay at this campsite. We camped at Canyon Country Campground in a Motorhome.

Very quiet, family-run campground. More of a quiet place to sleep than a destination, which suited us. Buildings are old construction and dated decor, but spotlessly clean. Sites are large & natural, but could use refurbishing. Quite tight for larger RVs as some trees need to be trimmed, but it was manageable (just). Wi-Fi worked well near the office. Nice hike to the gorge, but no view from the campground itself. Owners were friendly and helpful. Hookups worked well. The biggest problem was dust when weather was dry, and mud when it rained. The last 1/2 mile to the camp is on a dirt road (very dusty) and all roads in the park are dusty gravel. We camped at Canyon Country Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed here in a 37ft 5th wheel. The campground is very well kept,and the owners live on site. The sites are big and wooded for shade. It is a short hike to the Canyon overlook. The owners were very helpful and friendly. We will be back here again. We camped at Canyon Country Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We visited when the campground was nearly empty, but were very impressed with this friendly, small campground. Unlike many reviewers who are looking for family activities, we gauge our experience based more on the "camping feel". We love wooded sites and this park has them. There are a few pull-through sites for our rig of 38' and even they are pretty, wooded sites. If you are looking for a busy, activity-filled place with many amenities, then this might not be the place for you. If you are looking for a beautiful, quiet place in the woods, walking distance to the rim of the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon, and friendly staff, then this would be a great place to stay. We did not have occasion to use the bathroom/shower facilities so cannot comment. We camped at Canyon Country Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice quiet, family run campground. Large sites and a huge playground. Friendly staff that greeted me by name before we even registered! Easy hiking trail that leads directly canyon. Would stay here again. We camped at Canyon Country Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a small wooded campground next to PA's Grand Canyon . You can walk to the canyon's east rim on a trail from here . Sites are a little close, but with all the trees it's not so bad . It is dark and quiet at night, so you will find it peaceful . Bathrooms and showers are very clean. Just a note...the owners are nice people who run this place as a family campground not as a place to party . All in all this is a good place to camp . We camped at Canyon Country Campground in a Travel Trailer.

My husband & I stayed at Canyon Country for 7 nights and really enjoyed our time there. We had a pull-thru site that was partially wooded but still had plenty of room for our 26' trailer & awning. It is very quiet in spite of a lot of children on the week-end. The owners extremely friendly & knowledgeable about area. It was a great experience!

Enjoyable week. Beautiful area. Very friendly/helpful owners. Nice site that was sloping just enough so that after leveling the front wheels were airborne and the boarding steps pretty high. Owner quickly solved problem by building cinder block steps. Facilities were very clean. 30 Amp service worked well for our “big rig” if we were careful and watched the load. Price is average daily and includes Campground USA discount. Would certainly stay there again. We camped at Canyon Country Campground in a Motorhome.

Canyon Country Campground is located in the middle of the most beautiful part of Pennsylvania. The owners have created a delightful campground with nicely wooded sites and well maintained facilities. The bathrooms and showers are kept scrupulously clean. My wife particularly appreciated the potpourri placed in the women's bathroom. We would be happy to visit Canyon Country again.

Canyon Country Campground was a beautiful little campground. A real gem. Very family friendly. Every lot beautifully shaded. Owners were on hand if anything was needed but weren't pests. Very quiet and relaxing campground. Extremely clean bathhouses and game room. Entire park was kept clean. I read some other reviews where people say the owners were annoying. We didn't find that at all, they were friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay there again. A real beautiful area. We camped at Canyon Country Campground in a Travel Trailer.

At first glance the campground is great, very clean, nice sites, and if you go to bed before 10 pm you will have no problem here. At 10:00 the host gets on his "stealth" golf cart and slowly drives around without any lights on trying to catch people no obeying the rules so he can throw you out. At 10 pm it is quiet time and quiet means no talking or giggling. They have many rules that are posted everywhere in the campground. Would not go back or recommend. Also notified Good Sam since they are a Good Sam park. We camped at Canyon Country Campground in a Motorhome.

Canyon Country Campground is our idea of an ideal campground. The staff was very helpful when making my reservation as well as upon arrival. We were directed to our site by the owner who also helped us position the trailer in our site. Water and electric hookups were top quality and looked almost new. Our site was wooded and fairly private, campground noise was minimal and both the staff as well as other campers were friendly. Wood, when bought at the store was delivered directly to our site. We enjoyed the hiking trail which leads from the campground over to Leonard Harrison State Park and the Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania. We spent 4 days here and would have loved to have a whole week. The area is a goldmine for outdoor activities. We camped at Canyon Country Campground in a Travel Trailer.
