With the reopening of the Pickerel Point and Deerfield campgrounds, this park now has just about every type of campsite you can think of. Pickerel Point has electric and water; some WE&S sites and even water front tent sites, but they were full on this weekend so we camped in the Deerfield campground. No hookups in Deerfield but if you like being in the woods with peace and quiet, this is a great spot. All the sites are gravel and big. Some of the sites are a little off level but not so much that you will struggle leveling your camper. With the way it is laid out and the size of the sites, you would not feel crowded here even if it were full. We saw two bears and three racoons in 2 nights here.
We found this to be a fun place to camp . It is a true campground nicely shaded with trees and a beautiful shallow river running right along side of it . Yes there are a few older seasonal trailers there but they do not dominate the scenery and all the seasonal campers we met were nice folks . Pool, showers, playground, and the whole campground were clean . A good place for families . Your kids will have a good time .
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 .
This looks like it was a great family campground at one time. Now there are a lot of dirty , loud ,migrant gas well workers here who paid way too much attention to my teen aged daughters, so they just stayed at our site . Also they drive way too fast and are comming and going day and night .
This time we stayed in the lower lake campground . It was clean, quiet, and very scenic with the fall foliage. Just a note to other campers, the Pickerel Point and Deerfield campground will reopen for 2012 and the rehab work they did there is outstanding. This park will now have 4 campgrounds all of which are beautiful.
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 .
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 .
Very nice campground . The lake and beach area is clean and pretty . Rest rooms and showers are a little dated, but they are in fine working order and clean as well . This is a wooded campground with good shade; the way we like it . Both owners and seasonals are very nice . A good place for the money . Quiet at night too . Will return for sure .
I gave this place an 8 but for kids it is a 10. Always something going on for them. Everyone was very nice here. Sites have plenty of room and are well shaded. The pool was very nice as well. My daughter did not want to leave. Also, the owners are the best we have encountered and we have been to a lot of campgrounds. They do a great job.
Pulled in after spending the day at Knoebels . Drove through to check it out first and decided to stay some place else . This campground looks a little run down, but what chased us off was the junk trailers and old rusted farm machinery and trucks laying all over the entrance and office area . It just gave us a bad impression . The owner needs to clean up his office/junkyard .
We stayed in the pines camping area over the July 4th weekend and had another great time. If you like hiking and wildlife this is a good place for you. There are thousands of achres of wilderness here with miles of trails. The Pickrel Point and Deerfield camping areas will reopen next year. Just a few notes if you come here. This is a non alcohol park and they are not kidding. I have seen stste rangers remove persons from the campground for having beer. Also, this area is well noted for it"s large bear population. Keep your camp clean if you dont want unexpected visitors. We have seen them plenty of times over the years camping here but have had no promlems.
A great little forest service campground not far from Natural Bridge VA. They have a small lake with a sandy beach area and the whole park is quiet and kept very clean. Lots of fun stuff in the area for family"s to do. The Natural Bridge Safari is a must stop. The caverns are a nice stop too.
This is a very wooded campground along the Blue Ridge Parkway located at milepost 86. The high peaks of the mountains can be seen from the campground and lake. There is no swimming here. There is a bus that, for a small fee will drive visitors up to the top of Otter Peak. From up here the view is outstanding. Campground is very rustic and quiet. At night it is pitch Black here. Two things this park has are Deer that will walk within 3 feet of you, and the most persistent Raccoons begging for handouts at night I have ever seen.
A great location for a base camp to tour the southern Green Mountains. Campground is set on a hillside overlooking Emerald lake. The beach area is nice and they have boat rentals there too. Sites are well spaced and shaded. We would stay here again.
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.
This is a very quiet , scenic campground in a real wilderness area. There are well over 200,000 acres of state forest here. A great place for hikers and seeing wildlife with Elk, Bear, Deer and just about anything else that roams the PA wilds. Not much to do in the area but if you want to get back to nature this is it.
Very near the Grand Canyon of PA Stoney fork is a great place to stay when exploring this very scenic area of Tioga county. This is a very well run campground with clean restrooms and showers and nice level sites. We stayed in site 105A under a big shade tree. We just unhooked our trailer and it was dead level. Good electric and water service, a spotless clean pool, and very nice seasonals make this a very good safe place for families to camp and the owners work hard to keep it that way. Also, they have one of the best tent areas I have seen with nice large sites in a pine forest right next to the creek.
This is a great place to camp if you like to be over charged for everything and like to hear latino music blasting away all hours of the day and night. If your in the area, try Indian Branch Park or Country Oaks instead. A Wal-Mart parking lot is better than this.
This park is a great place if you like being in the wilderness. It is surrounded by the 262,415 acre Susquehannock State Forest. There is a lot of wildlife in the area such as Bear, Elk, and Bobcat. Both camping loops have electric sites in them, with loop 2 being a more shaded area than loop 1. A cold mountain stream runs through the middle of the park and there is a swimming area with a sandy beach. Both the restrooms and the showers are spotless. Trout fishing in the area is said to be very good. Racoons are regular visiters at night. Will camp here again for sure. It is a nice place and a lot of fun too.
Very nice park, high in the Catskill mountains. Has a nice pool, clean showers and restrooms, and well kept grounds. It can really cool down here at night and it is quiet too. You can't beat this place for the money. We will return.
This was our third trip to this campground. It is a very nice place, surrounded by some of the high peaks of the White Mountains. Set in the woods next to a stream, it has a real wilderness feel to it, yet it is only about 15 minutes from the great little town of North Woodstock. This is another great place for hikers with miles and miles of trails nearby. A very good place for tents and pop up trailers as it is quiet at night. Watch out for Moose along the roads at night. We like this place and will stay here again.
This park is set in a beautiful old growth pine forest with large boulders interspersed throughout. Some of the trees are real giants hundreds of years old. A good park for hiking and seeing wildlife too. We made the hike around the lake and saw a moose. Park staff are great as they have been in all the MA state parks we have visited.
One of the best campgrounds in all the U.S. Sites are clean, roomy, and private. The whole place is kept spotless clean and the staff is great. Best swimming pool I have ever seen with a nice pool side cafe. An A+ campground.
One of the best state parks in the Pocono Mountains of PA. We spend at least 2 weekends here every summer. Of the five campgrounds in this park: the Pines is our favorite. No electric at the sites, but the restrooms and showers are nice. Some of the other campgrounds have electric. This park is a great place for hikers with miles of trails through the Delaware State Forest (several thousand acres). Both the lower lake and Promised Land lake have great fishing. A good place to see wildlife too. Bears are not uncommon to this park.
