Motorized Campsite

Overall Bald Eagle State Forest was an amazing location and beautiful place to explore. We had an amazing stay, and the trails were tons of fun to drive. The only downside of our campsite was that it was listed as “motorized”. These sites are advertised as drive-up and occupy your vehicle sites,…

Very secluded quiet spot

Nice little spot with no one around. Maybe 2-3 cars passed on the SF road each day. Primitive camping with picnic table and fire ring - that’s it. Have to carry your gear from your car a little ways. Very close to the MST. Only complaint was that there was a beautiful creek behind it with no trail.…

Dispersed Site #13; Pretty, loud, not accessible for pop up campers

Husband and I set off for a weekend of boon docking at Bald Eagle State Forest in our little pop up camper. We stayed at site #13, which is a dispersed site- not in the campground. 

Picture a lovely large, round grassy meadow surrounded by trees at the end of a long gravel road. Picnic table, fire…

  • The in-accessible to pop-up campers site.
  • We set up behind the boulders, at the end of the gravel road
  • Looking down the gravel road. (We are at the end of it.)

About This Campground

Bald Eagle State Forest, named for the famous Native American, Chief Bald Eagle, includes 193,424 acres in Snyder County, Union County, Centre County, Mifflin County, and Clinton County. It spans across the high, sharp ridges of central Pennsylvania and features miles pristine mountain streams and numerous tracts of old growth forest. Bald Eagle forest district lies in the beautiful ridge and valley section of the state. From the limestone-rich Susquehanna Valley in the southeast to the Allegheny Mountains in the northwest, the forest district is dominated by a series of sandstone ridges some of which reach heights of 2,300 feet above sea level. The confluence of the west and north branches of the Susquehanna River occurs on the eastern boundary of the district, opposite the town of Northumberland. The many streams within the area have their origin in the forested ridges and flow in several directions eventually emptying into the Susquehanna River. Public watersheds comprise over one-third of the Bald Eagle State Forest, making the wise management of this land essential.
