The camping area is secluded off of the main area and far away from hiking, lake and the pool and I only wish it was closer - having to drive is a bit of a hassle. It's a nice campground (bit tight, not a lot of privacy between sites) bathrooms were VERY well maintained but there are NO LOCKS in... More

My family has our annual family reunion at the park and it is always a good time. I took my infant son this year and we had a great time at the pool and pushing him in his stroller on the trails. This is something I will continue to take my family in the years to come!

My stay at Little Buffalo State Park from August 23rd thru August 27th 2014 seemed nice, until the day of departure, when I noticed bites in certain areas of my body. I posted photos on Facebook hoping for an answer as to what could have bitten me. To my surprise I was informed that they looked like Bed Bug Bites!!... More

Little Buffalo has a very top notch pool with fun slides for kids. It also has great, well maintained hiking trails, boat rentals, including paddle boats and canoes. If you go on a Saturday the Mill even still runs and has tours. There is stuff all year long. The Christmas Trail in December is a yearly family tradition!

For the outdoor-minded, there are many activity options. We recently had family pictures taken at the park with a multitude of background options. The mill offers a great backdrop, with other options close by - including, the covered bridge, the lake from the breast of the dam, a railroad car, a small playground for the kids all by the day...

I took my wife here for a surprise to see our first covered bridge. We came in November and it was so cold but well worth the trip. Clays covered bridge was moved here and is in great shape. Loved it and will return.

This little state park really has it all! There are well-maintained hiking trails for all fitness levels. The pool is outstanding with the spray area being a big hit for kids (and adults like me who love water!). You can rent boats to go out on the large lake or take you own. For history buffs, there is a working... More

Overnight stay with 30 foot RV. Campsite easily accessible and clean. Park area beautiful. No on site shop. Campfire wood available not far from site. Great little pizza place down the road. Zeiderelli's. Please remember (we didn't) that alcohol is not allowed in Pennsylvania State Parks.
