“Great family camping along the Juniata River”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

The campground is located right along the Juniata River. It is a large campground offering much for families with kids. Bath houses were clean, the office is open late, nice pool. Average price per night $45. One downside, a train runs along the other side of the river at all hours. Would stay again.

We go to this campground a few times a year. It's about a 2 hour drive and the drive up is beautiful. There is a lot for the kids to do. We get them a wristband and they can play all weekend on the pedal carts, bounce pillow and putt putt golf. They have activities that aree fun for the whole family. There is a train that makes a lot of noise, but I don't even mind it because this campground is so great. The staff and owners are so nice and accommodating. By far the best in my book!

The campground is situated along a nice stretch of the Juniata. Bring your kayaks or money to rent some while you are here. It is a clean campground with above average bathrooms. They offer activities for kids. The $17 wristband is a little pricey for the amenities that it offer. They have friendly and helpful staff. This has to be the quietest place that I have stayed for camping. It includes locked gate protection too. This is a nice place for a family looking to get away for a few days.
