“Friendly Camp Hosts, and Wildlife Sightings”

Reviewed Oct 20, 2018

Overall Rating

Although we only spent one night at Mathew Arms campground, we really enjoyed our experience. Andy, the volunteer camp host was so friendly and shared so many interesting stories about the park! We really enjoyed meeting him. He even came by our site to make sure we got back from our late afternoon hike okay.

We hiked the Overall Run Falls trail in the morning and saw 3 bear cubs and a momma bear less than 20 minutes into our hike!

The sites are very well maintained. Nice tables and fire rings with a nice buffer of space between each site. Their bathroom facilities were also clean and well maintained.

The only downside was that there was no cell reception. While it's always difficult to be forced to step away from work, it does make for an experience sure to be filled with memories.

“do you want to see bears?”

Reviewed Oct 02, 2016

Overall Rating

If you want to see bears, then come here. There are several here roaming through the park, so take heed and do not leave anything out that may attract bears. We saw a ranger confisgate a cooler that someone left out. It really wasn't very busy. Maybe it was because the weather wasn't great. We had a lot of rain. Camped here late September. The website said they were under construction, but nothing was going on when we were there. On the weekend, it was busy and sites are close. During the week, though, so much better. I would say it is about 3.5 to 4 stars. Would definitely come back here. Upper sites had some cell service. I would walk up and get on and check email. Most sites did not have cell. All boondocking sites.
