Park can be a "tight squeeze" with big equipment. The roadway in the entrance has a 10 ton limit, and the roads are narrow. Be careful. However, once you get yourself situated, this is a well-patrolled park. Didn't observe any bad acting. Quiet and family safe. We are here now and the heat this summer in general and this week has been oppressive. Luckily the A loop site we are in has 50 amps. No water or sewer - sites across the way do on the water side.

Hiking trails are suitable for all age hikers. Little sandy beach area with pavilions is cute. There are several large group areas sprinkled around. Yurts and cabins look attractive. Wellsboro is a nice little spot with some shopping and rainy day destinations like a theatre and some nice restaurants- mom and pop and fine dining.

I hear the fishing is good but I've come up empty. Tackle Shack outside of Wellsboro is well stocked. We camped at Hills Creek State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Hills Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

Shopping/grocery stores available in Wellsboro. Nice downtown area with several restaurants. Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania is west of town and worth the trip.

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. We camped at Hills Creek State Park in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at Hills Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

I have reviewed this park before and still think it is a great place to stay . The only thing that has changed is that the gas well people are doing a lot of damage to the natural beauty of the area . Some of the migrant workers come into the park late at night and use the showers . They are in general , very sleazy looking characters . We camped at Hills Creek State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Hills Creek State Park is a beautiful park with clean restrooms and ideal location. This campground probably would have received a 10 out of 10 rating from us if it wasn't for our site location. We were directly across from the 'host' (creepy spy) site. From the moment we arrived we felt as if someone was looking over our shoulder. By the next afternoon we realized that was exactly true. Because of this oppressive feeling we left a day early. We camp all over New England and have never experienced anything like this before. We are a young family of four out to enjoy a nice relaxing camping vacation. Also, quiet hours encompass 11 hours of the day...from 9pm to 8am. If you decide to camp here it may be wonderful. We just recommend you avoid being any where near the host site. When we were there the host site was site 6. We camped at Hills Creek State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a modern campground with large sites, clean restrooms and showers. Has a very scenic lake with great fishing and a beach, and a lot of nice ranger led programs for both children and adults. This park is also close to the PA Grand Canyon and neat little town of Wellsboro. I have been to a lot of PA"s state parks and this is by far one of the best. Your kids will not run out of things to do here. We camped at Hills Creek State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Hills Creek is the only state park campground in the area with showers. Very roomy sites with good privacy. Swimming and boating on the lake. Nice large and clean restrooms and shower facilities. We camped at Hills Creek State Park in a Travel Trailer.
