“New Full Hook-up Sites!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2014

We were delighted to find out the the site we had reserved many months ago had been converted to a full hook-up site (water/electric/sewer)!!!! In the past, their sites were only electric sites. This was a nice addition to an already nice and well-kept park!! We did visit the modern bathroom/showers and they were very clean and nice smelling! This park has a swimming beach, boating and lots of hiking trails. They have very intersting and informative educational presentations throughout the weekend as well. Something to be aware of is there is NO cell phone service around the park! We enjoyed our time away from our phones, but the teenagers didn't!

“Kayaker Paradise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2014

Black Moshannon was a very nice campground. It is not at all near the lake. The lake is on the small side and fishing is difficult from the shoreline. Kayakers would love it, as too, would electric motorboater. There is a beach for the kids to splash in. The campground is clean, but the roads through the campground are tight- keep an eye on your side mirrors, so you do not hurt a tree or your rig. They have a very quaint campstore and it is within walking distance. There is no bike trail. We biked on the roads (adults & teenager), with caution. Quiet place for relaxation.

Nice park tiny beach and waterway is clogged with plants making kayaking a pain. If you are in the area a nice place to relax and have a picnic lunch.

“Great camping”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2014

We chose Black Moshannon because it was between where we live and where our friends live. We enjoyed our stay and would like to return in the future. The campground is well cared for with large sites. The restrooms are fairly new and very clean. The variety of hiking trails offers a hike for everyone. We enjoyed several hikes with our friends and their dog, none of which were too difficult. Although we did not take advantage of it, there is a nature program availabe almost daily. The lake is very pretty and everything is within walking distance from the campgrund. We wanted to rent a canoe buut were disappointed to find that the boat rental is closed on Monday and Tuesday. We did find it unusual that check in and check out is at 3PM, so if you arrive early, there is a chance that you may have to wait to occupy your site. No worry about this because there are plenty of places to park for a while and take a little walk until you can get on your site to set up.

Mountain lake with interesting plants and birds. Check the Bog Trial and for a longer hike the Moss-Hanna Trail.
