Outstanding well organized campground with something for everyone. The bath houses were the cleanest I've experienced in any campground, hats off to the staff! Down side is the train that runs at night and the race track on Saturday evening.

We spent a few days in May (Cinco de Mayo weekend) at Buttonwood. We enjoyed our stay so much we have decided to return, this time with tubes to enjoy the river. Although some may be disturbed by the train on the other side of the river, we became accustomed to it, and enjoyed it. Since I do not have... More

beautiful facility about 2 miles off the 322 in miflintown, pa. level gravel sites with grass dividers. many pull thru sites. security gate, store, pool, pavilions, and a very friendly staff. escort to your site. full hookups inc full cable channels. there is a separate facility across the road with sites on or overlooking the juniata river.

This is the second time we have tent-camped here in two years. We enjoyed both stays. The staff is great, the facilities are clean and neat, and aside from the train it is pretty quiet. The pool is immaculately kept! Lots for kids to do, but we didn't utilize any of it, but the playground is free and my boys... More

I read a lot of reviews and it does help me decide on places to stay,so i thought i should also write a review for others to be aware of when deciding on camping at buttonwood. My biggest complaint is the $17 a week wrist bands for the kids to be able to use the facilities available to kids. I... More

The grounds are very well kept, staff is friendly and accommodating, the cabin I had was small but very cozy and clean. I traveled alone with a small dog. I did not have a problem with the train as others mentioned. I could not hear it from my cabin, and in my opinion adds to the charm the facility. I... More

The only reason I cannot recommend this facility for 5 star rating is due to their proximity to a locomotive main line that cuts through the midstate. The trains do run all day and night and would certainly disturb the light sleepers and most anyone in a tent. The family togetherness theme is definitely there. From build your own cardboard...

stayed 2 nites in July. Really overpriced and the water is kind of brown colored and made us kind of sick . after we mentioned it to other campers they said no one drinks the water there. there are no warning signs. They nare really trying to maximise profits so they are probably skimping on water treatment. spent 3 months... More

The park is family owned and friendly. Staff couldn't be more welcoming or informative. We received an escort to our spot which was right on the river. The grounds were well taken care of and there was a security gate too. There are lots of activities for families and the river was great for swimming, kayaking and fishing. The bathhouses... More

Buttonwood is a family owned, family cared for, family friendly campground located on the Juniata river. Have been camping for 35 years and this campground ranks at the top! The pool is a bit small but there is river access, so bring your kayaks and tubes. The landscaping is done by the son of the owner, Mike McFarland...amazing!!!! Mile is... More
