Great clean beach with several activities for families of all ages. The campground was quiet and safe, with electricity and water on the site. I will return year after year.

We stayed at the Susquehannock campgrounds this pass June. We stayed in site (5). It was clean and very spacious. The staff were friendly and checking in and out was a breeze. The bathrooms were near by and it is only minutes from the Seven Points Marina. Very nice campground and we will be going back!! :)

This was a truly great find. The area is owned and administered by the US Army Corp of Engineers and the area is known as Seven Points Campground. Within the "campground" are 6 camps each with their own unique characteristics. Total number of sites is 255 with 249 of them standard electric (no water or sewer hookups) Each camp has... More

We stayed in the Pine cabins which are run by the the resort at Raystown Lake. The cabins were clean and served our purpose just fine. I would definitely come back and stay next year. Our days were spent relaxing and enjoying friends. The Proud Mary tour was very nice and informative...

We booked a room to stay while attending our cousin's wedding reception there. When we checked out the website , we decided to book an extra day to take in the waterpark and showboat. Our teenage son enjoyed the waterpark, and we all thought the cruise was excellent. We were lucky to get a room with a great view, considering... More

My husband and I are very very disappointed in the Susquehannock Campground. It was advertised that there were Showers and Flush Toilets at the campground which there were none. We had to drive 8 miles to a shower. The toilets were a glorified outhouse. Such false Advertising will not be bringing us back to Susquehannock Campground. If you do not... More

Our women's hiking group spent our Fall overnight here at the Lodge. The weather had suddenly turned cold but the rooms were warm and comfortable and overlook the lake. The trails were a bit overgrown in places but afforded spectacular views. We had dinner at the Marina Cafe and found the food to be excellent and very reasonably priced. Everyone... More
