We were really disappointed all around by the visit to this state park. We are avid campers and state park enthusiasts but PA has a lot to learn. The sites were level but crammed together, the bathhouse wasn't cleaned the entire three days we were camping, and there were only three fresh water sources in the whole lower campground. Not...

This is a lovely park offering something for everyone who likes the outdoors. There are two beaches. picnic areas, a small food vendor, trails, an eagle's nest to observe, boats to rent and fun for all. Don't miss the ranger's talks and the small but interesting museum.

This was our first stop on a two week road trip. Stayed in the Pickerel Point area, in a tent, near the bathroom. The sites are cozy, and rather close to each other, however, comfortable enough. The bathrooms are clean, and modern. Free showers, and there are dish washing stations attached to the outside, which was a bonus for us.... More

This is one of the only state parks in Pennsylvania that has full hookups for RV's, and can easily handle big rigs. We camped here in a 37 foot motorhome with a towed vehicle. Some of the sites are more level than others. Most of the RV sites are good sized and can accomodate multiple slide outs. Rest rooms are... More

Beware to those with larger tents. The RV sites in Beechwood are not all compatible for tents. If you are in a tent, Northwoods and other sites are more suitable. We were barely able to fit an 8 person tent on our site (Beechwood) which was mostly pavement and other tent campers we met experienced a similar problem. Bathrooms are... More

We love camping in the Pines. Sure the bathrooms are really old, but from the Pines you have access to a lot of trails and local shops. Pickerel Point is very modern and has great views of the water, but the road in and out of there can get busy in the summer. Not bad, but we camp with young... More

We camp here every year at least twice a year. I spent my honeymoon 21 years ago here in one of the cabins. This is a wonderful unspoiled park. I love it here! My only complaint is other campers who don't follow the park rules and party all night while others are sleeping. Please remember when you are camping that... More
