Our Garmin 660 LMT RV got us here off Route 6, although we were on a one lane road at some point, perhaps it wasn't the best route. The campground roads are narrow with sharp turns and may be more suited for smaller rigs like our 26 ft. Class C. We were in the A loop and our site was called on the reserve website a "modern electric" site, no other hookups. We have a pull through site that was very level for us but might not be for a big rig. There was 20, 30 and 50 amp receptacles at our site. There was an additional $6 transaction fee to reserve. The shower rooms on our loop were very clean and had either been recently remodeled or were new and functioned very well. There was a laundry room in loop B we used, $2.25 to wash and $.25 per 8 minutes to dry, only one washer and one dryer. We parked our RV in a nearby vacant site while we did laundry, there are 2 small parking spots at the laundry, one is for handicap, you might get a small RV in one if you backed it in over the curb. The machines worked well and the room was clean. There are nice trails here and large well kept lawns in the day use areas. The ranger where we checked in was very friendly and helpful. It is about a 30 minute drive from here to Leonard Harrison State Park where there are viewpoints and trails along the rim of Pennsylvania's Grand Canyon. We chose to camp here instead because of the availability of cell service for our mobile internet hotpot and making calls. Verizon service was 2 bars and increased to 4 bars 4g LTE with our Weboost cellular booster. There is an available dump station and potable water. It was quiet while we were here. Would definitely stay here again.

“I love how PA sees a few hills and a creek and figures, "Yeah, make it a state park."”

Northern Central to Eastern Pennsylvania is known as the Pennsylvania Wilds, and rightly so. There are more dirt roads, Elk crossings and long bouts down winding two-lanes here than in any other part of the state I’ve ever ventured through. This state park is no exception, and in fact is more like a subsection of this entire region cut out and placed into a containable little area.

Group sites, tent sites and RV parking is available, and there is plenty of the latter. The roads through the park are generally flat, with small rolling hills that make for leisurely strolls on a bike. There are a few short hiking trails and you could walk around the lake that makes up the vast majority of the western edge of the park if you really wanted to get out on your feet. The park also has plenty of day use space available if you just want to stop through and take a break from the open road (the beautiful and well known PA Route 6 runs very nearby).

A small concession stand sells ice cream, hot dogs and fire wood, as well as renting out rafts, kayaks and paddle boats that allow you to get out on the lake and enjoy yourself. The lake itself is very calm, and chock-full of little alcoves harboring lilly pads, the occasional crane or two, and who knows what other untold treasures tucked away.

We stayed here in late September a couple of years back, and the leaves were already very much beginning to change. The park ranger mentioned that the first three weeks in October are spectacular here, and the park is about 18 miles away from Pine Creek Gorge, also known as “Pennsylvania’s Grand Canyon.”

Oh and if you weren't in the know, there is no alcohol allowed in PA state parks.
