We were there from 6/15/20 - 6/17/20 in site 22. Site 22 is 40 feet long and room enough for our 27 foot RV. The things that we liked the most is how the sites were laid out. You had a "private" area for picnic table and fire pit as the rv is situated on an angle which also helped. We had shade and sun and also a additional tent pad which we didn't use. We loved the distance between each site and because of the angle of the sites you didn't really know there was someone beside you. The restroom was rustic and had no shower but we knew that going in. It was very peaceful and my husband loved the trails. Wooded area kept the area cool which we appreciated.

We did have Sirus radio and some radio stations on our 2 radios.

“Beautiful state park, no-frills campground”

We camped here in early spring, and while the weather was still a bit cool and the trees still mostly bare, it's a gorgeous park. The road to the campground is long and winding and gives you a preview of the park's natural treasures (Rainbow Falls, Balanced Rock, Copperas Rock). The road is also quite narrow, but we managed it with our 37' travel trailer.

The campground itself isn't particularly exciting, but you can hop right on the trails and enjoy the rest of the park. Campsites are electric only. Water from the campground spigot was brown. No cell service here, but there are phones in the campground in case of emergency. No bathhouses, just vault toilets. Dump station is rather far from the campground, near the park entrance.

We enjoyed the (somewhat) nearby town of Huntingdon. The Standing Stone coffee shop also has coin operated laundry on-site (traveler's delight!) and Boxer's Cafe has a surprisingly tasty burger for only $4. Be sure to hike the Thousand Steps trail just outside Huntingdon.
