The campground, ideally located, offers large enough sites with much privacy from each other. Showers are free and really clean, though water was mostly cold when we used it (only stayed two nights, so maybe it was only bad luck). The small beach (for kids) can be reached by foot, as well as some hiking trails, including Falls trail (or... More

I love it here. The campground is clean and quiet. It is on state gamelands which are patrolled routinely by the rangers. Thre are bathrooms and showers which are routinely cleaned. There is a manmade lake where you can rent kayaks, pedalboats etc. They have a concession stand. You can fish and swim. There are trails for hiking one of... More

Our family of four camped here in our pop-up over Memorial Day Weekend in site 10. We greatly enjoyed the recreation opportunities that Rickett's Glen has to offer. The waterfalls hike is a must if you've got the lungs and footwear for it. There are less scenic trails that are less work, but I know of nowhere else where you... More

Ricketts Glen is an amazing place to go when you need to just get away from the stresses of the world for a few days or even a few hours. My fiance and I have booked one of the Modern Cabins for the past three years and although we are their for a week, it feels like we have had... More

I love Ricketts Glen! I was born and raised at the bottom of the mountain! We always stayed in the cabin many times! It's very beautiful and peaceful! I miss my mountains and can't wait to take my daughter to visit! Nothing like have these mountains as your view from my front porch growing up!!!!

My boyfriend and I went to Ricketts Glen and rented a cabin there for 2 nights. We absolutely loved the cabin. No cell phone service, no internet, no tv, no distractions. Just me and my boyfriend and the gorgeous park with over 26 miles of trails. We hiked the falls trails each day for about 8 miles. Amazingly beautiful. Be... More

Our group of six reserved two camp sites for the Labor Day weekend and had a blast! The campgrounds are beautifully maintained, and the bathrooms, shower stalls and dish washing stations were a total luxury. There were also myriad activities going on during the weekend (we did not check them out, but they sounded interesting -- craft activities for kids,... More

I camped here with my husband and our two daughters ages 6 and 2 for 4 nights in August. I must say that we were worried about the temperatures, since it was August, but during the day it was in the low 80s and at night the mid 50s. It was actually quite a bit chilly most of the time... More

Camped in this park in August 2015 for 2 nights over the weekend. The bathrooms are some of the cleanest I saw in a PA state park. There is boating and swimming, though Lake Jean is currently under renovations and part of the lake is drained. Some of the fire rings do not have a grill top which makes cooking... More

A very good day hike (7 mile loop) loaded with waterfalls. Try to go off season or weekdays, as this trail can get crowded. The PA state campground is well maintained, about 5 miles away, and a good option for lodging.
