“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.
