Overall Rating

There are not a lot of options in Shelocta, PA, despite its proximity to Indiana, PA, home of Jimmy Stewart, Christmas Tree Capital of the world, and home of Indiana University of Pennsylvania. I had an event that brought me to Shelocta for 3 nights, sot he Wheel-In-Campground was my choice.

The owners were friendly by phone and in person. I was personally escorted through the gate to my campsite to be shown the layout of the grass site. The sites here are parallel instead of the usual perpendicular layout most campgrounds use. It was explained that is gave each site a larger, "yard", which it indeed, did. Each site has a picnic table, very large fire ring, electric, and water connections.

My site was right along the Plum Creek and had large shade trees at the back of the site, but not near where campers and connections were located. The area has had an extraordinary amount of rain, recently, so it was fairly saturated, but not muddy. I noticed sites that looked prone to mud had ample gravel to make the experience more pleasant.

I did not purchase firewood, but my neighbors did, from a local lumber mill.

The gate locks at 9:00 PM each night, but you may purchase a $10 cash refundable gate card to provide you with after hours access.

Their website listed a lot of activities for families, although I did not participate in any.

The campground has a playground, bathhouse, pond with paddle boats, There were some families wading the creek, but it is pretty muddy. My Shih Tzu came out of it with a nice shade of a brown from the mud.

The campground was relatively clean and quiet. The sites were large from front to back and very wide, but there is no privacy.

If you need a campground close to Indiana, PA, this is the ticket.
