“The road to the campground is Narrow! However, campground is very nice.”

Reviewed Sep 19, 2017

Overall Rating

The is one of the better PA parks.

The last couple of roads getting into the campground were VERY narrow. The last 1 ½ miles is a 2 lane road with swamp on both sides for much of the length of the road. The lanes were only about 6 ft. wide, so our 8 ft. wide 5th wheel took up part of the lane for on- coming traffic. Luckily we didn’t meet other vehicles because one of us would have had to back out of the winding road. These roads leading into the campground are enough to make us very hesitant to return. I'm not sure what we would have done if we had met any traffic.

The staff in this campground were very nice and welcoming. We were there during December and the campground was nicely decorated.

The campground was lovely. There were trees surrounding the campground, with a pond in the middle. Most of the campsites backed up to the pond. Sites are very reasonable in size. There was plenty of room in the site for the truck, 5th wheel and jeep. The campground easily handles big rigs.

There are asphalt roads through the campground. Each camp site had gravel area for RV. Each site has a concrete patio with a nice picnic table. There is well maintained grass between the sites. Sites are all very level. Pool was closed because of the time of year—but it looked like a nice pool area.

Good Verizon coverage. Easy to get DirecTV satellite.

This campground offers a very quiet, pretty place to relax. If the road getting to the campground were better (wider) I would not hesitate recommending it. Some campers may not be bothered by the road leading to the campground. Towing a vehicle behind would make it hard to impossible to back up--so we are more cautious.

“Very Quiet, impeccable grounds”

We love the peace and quiet here plus the campground is beautiful. There is a 5 ac pond and the campsites sit along the outside edge. It is Sept 9 and the ground between the pond and sites is very wet. I'm not walking in it, just saying. That said the road allows for easy parking on the sites. The sites are in pairs with room for 2 campers back to back, then ample room to the next 2 sites. Strange but it works I guess. The wifi doesn't work at the sites. You pay 5 to use a fire ring and they give you one bundle of wood. Check in was friendly and there is an escort to the site with back in help. The place is gated.
