“Not Worth the High Price”

Reviewed May 20, 2017

Overall Rating

After looking at this Pennsylvania State Park campground online and seeing it's rates (which, listed on Reserve America, are very reasonable), I swung by to check it out.

The real rates are vastly different. Maybe Reserve America just lists base rates? Regardless, additional fees were tacked on for it being a weekend night, for being out of state residents, and for having a dog (which are only allowed in two small areas of the campground)...then they charge a $5 reservation fee regardless of whether you reserved or are a walk up.

At the end of the day it was $36 for an electric-only site far away from the bathrooms, on an overgrown and narrow gravel pad that was too sloped to allow for leveling.

The park itself is worth a visit. There is a lake for swimming, a cool drive through the woods to an open boulder field, a disc golf course, and lots of trails for hiking.

Cell service on both Verizon and AT&T were 3G, slow speeds.
