I wasn't expecting much, but what a nice state park! The campground was clean and well maintained, the bathrooms were also clean. The beach area was so nice! We rented paddle boards and kayaks and had a great time. We'll be back.

We love going camping here. It’s cool and pretty in the mountains, some nice easy hiking is available, and there is a lake with kayaking and canoeing. So peaceful.

It's the best of PA State Parks. Perfect blend of activities and serenity. It doesn't have the attractions that Rickett's Glen and Ohio Pyle have to offer but it also doesn't have the crowds. Besides, Ohio Pyle is a pretty close day-trip if you want...More
