“Nice Park, for the price”

Reviewed Aug 22, 2017

Overall Rating

The site was a little un-level but were able to level our 38 ft motorhome. We had a site that was electric only which isn't a problem for us on a 4 night stay, being right next to the bathroom was helpful. I like the fact that check out time is 3, gives you plenty of time to get ready to go if you need it. We checked in early, about 1:00 and were told if the site was empty (which it was) we could occupy it right away. We travel with two dogs and there is adequate room to walk them. We had two granddaughters with us who wanted to swim in the pool and canoe in the lake. The pool was $4 per person whether you swam or not and $20/hour for a canoe which I thought was a bit high. The trails were ok, but nothing spectacular. With our We-Boost we had 3 bars on At&T and 4 on T-mobile which was a surprise as we had no service on T-mobile without. We entered the park from I-81 extit 109B on 524. That brought us almost to the entrance of the park. 524 was a bit tight with a few turns but manageable.

“Lovely Park - Choose Site Carefully for Big Rigs”

Reviewed Jul 13, 2016

Overall Rating

This is a lovely state park in northern PA that is relatively close to Scraton and Dalton for easy shopping and amenities.

It has 3 loops, two of which allow pets. The loops are a mix of non-electric and electric sites. Since it is heavily treed (not optimal for solar), we opted for an electric site on the Fox Run loop ('second' loop).

The roads getting in are somewhat narrow, and currently plenty of detours from construction. The reservation confirmation directions made no mention of the detours or best routes for RVs to come in. Our various GPS's gave us conflicting information on which roads were appropriate as well. We ended up coming in on 438 (exit 201), which is do-able but very narrow and hilly. We left via 107 (exit 202), which was much easier to navigate.

Once you are settled in, this is a very peaceful and restful park. During the week in summer, we hardly had any neighbors. But getting into your site may be a challenge. We used satellite view to select our site - #55 - for best privacy. However it had quite a 'slope' and we almost bottomed out backing in. Parking our toad on the remaining space was a challenge.

We had a large trailer try to get into the spot next door, which while large enough itself - the entry was nearly impossible given the placement of trees. After 2 hours of us all trying to help them get into their spot - the camp host called in the ranger, and they ended up re-locating to a different spot.

Aside from the unlevel nature of many spots, and the difficulty getting in - the other ding for the park is lack of easy walking access to the lake, pool & public areas. There didn't seem to be any well marked trails to explore (and those that were are fairly unmaintained), and getting to the lake is down a pretty steep hill for casual walking.

Cell phone signal however was pretty great for Verizon & AT&T.
