Very close to the State Gamelands, we rent a cabin every year opening weekend of Buck season. The park rangers have never been a friendly bunch, but we've never had any trouble with them. A great place to bring sons for a weekend away from electronics. The waterfalls are beautiful, but can be extremely dangerous at the wrong time of... More

Saw lots of reviews about park rangers being tough. We did not see them for the whole weekend we were there except for signing in. Though when we did they were not the friendliest. Campsite was nice and it was a lot more crowded than I would have expected at that time of year. Falls were beautiful. Trails were not... More

This being one of the top rated Pennsylvania state parks we had to go see it. We stayed one night in the campground and I really liked our site because it was on the small Lake Jean. The campground was fine, bathrooms ok etc. Be aware the waterfalls are a trek from the campground. And also always be aware even... More

Wow, I agree with many of the Reviewers regarding the unique beauty of this state park, and a hiking experience like we've rarely seen anywhere else. I highly recommend folks visit this state park, do some challenging hiking, see the waterfalls, and spend the day. Be careful on the hikes, even as an experienced hiker and outdoor lover, some of...

Didn't stay at the campground but hike is spectacular with 20 waterfalls in close proximity. Park in lake rose lot close to trail, bring water and wear shoes with traction and grab a walking stock. I would walk the highland flat portion then down the glen to waters meet and up the steeper glen with the 90 foot Ganoga falls

We love this park. It is great for kids but alot of danger in high areas. So fun to see God's beauty in the woods of PA. We will be back again and again for the beauty. Not for those who are out of shape or cannot climb 2-3 flights of stairs.

We went August 2013 while camping. It was an amazing hike. It ended be if much longer than planned but worth it. WEAR PROPER SHOES AND TAKE PROPER FOOD AND WATER. There is a flush bathroom near the south turning point! Beautiful places for lunch. Oh take a towel and swim suits too!

overall great experience pros: inexpensive, clean bathrooms with hot showers, some sites are pet friendly, some sites are right on the lake (great for us because we had a kayak), great trails with tons of natural beauty that are well maintained in the park cons: a mile or more to the beach (fine if you can drive or don't mind...
