We camped the last weekend that the park was open for the season. It was during Covid times and I was grateful for the care that was taken by the employees and the visitors. The bathrooms were cleaned 2x per day and that was very appreciated. Our trip lined up with the new moon so we walked to Kent Pond once it was dark and it did not disappoint!! The stars and milky way were mesmerizing!! I love that the AT crosses through it this park, there were many fun places to explore! The lean to was the perfect size for our 2 person tent to be fully covered with room to move around. We had plenty of room left to spread out our gear which was clutch since it rained half our time camping. I can’t wait come back to this park to camp!!

Easy access to LT and AT hikes, as well as easy loops and pond strolls. The rangers and staff are wonderful, bathrooms are clean, and showers are hot. This would be a five-star review if not for the loud road traffic that continues through the night. The noise doesn’t keep us from coming to camp, but it does keep us awake when we are there.

Stayed 2 nights as part of our guys camping weekends. Gifford woods was our new state park this year. Upper camping loop had roomy and private sites, lower tighter but with newer bathrooms. Appalacion trail runs thru park.

Loud drunks kept me up late and then trucks rumbling up the hill on the highway out front woke me up early. I got about 4 hours of sleep.

We went for a scenic ride and were a bit disappointed that we would have to pay a fee to see this place as we were only passing through. As we were a bit lost, how happy were we to find Wi-Fi available at the visitors' center, just enough to get our GPS going again.
