Clean facilities, nice little beach with playground, warm showers available— all-around good place!
A small campground on the large Bald Eagle Lake. the campground is actually a short drive down the road from the bulk of the park, but still has a boat launch area.
Campaites vary from nice large sites set back from the road up some stone stairs or pathway, to small grassy pull offs on the side of the road. We stayed at one of the set back sites.
There is not much in the area in terms of supplies or stores. there was an old Unimart Gas station on Howard PA that is now closed. There is a pizza place that sells bags of ice as well as a small outdoors store we didn’t visit.
There is are a few vault toilets in the loop as well as a plethora of water pumps.
Other campers were very loud and didn’t follow much in terms of usual campground etiquette.
Well maintained, sites are spacious, lots to do in the park, clean bathrooms and friendly staff. We will be back for sure!
Bald Eagle State Park is a great place to camp, fish, kayak, boat, bike and hike. We camped here in the off season. The two commercial camping areas are great and provide all of the comforts of commercial camping, complete with yurts and cabins. We drove around the lake to check out the primitive camping locations also. They are very well maintained with an outhouse toilet facility. I was impressed at how clean every site was
The lake is huge with a beautiful beach to spread out on and play in the sand! We kayaked and biked all over the park. We also fished a lot. Due to the large size of the lake we didn’t feel like we were on top of other people fishing.
Our kids loved the freedom of riding their bike and exploring the park with other kids who were camping. We are glad we camped here!!
this is my favorite campground been coming here for the past 4 years. some of the sites are a little hard to get into because of the loop. I have camped at a few campground, but this is a campground I can’t wait to come back too! there isn’t a bad site, the water is a good water, but once you get there you will love the beach! we love to camp here over the 4 of July, there are spots that if it rains we can still have our cook out with our group. we go back in August this year and I can’t wait!
The lake is okay but you can't even see it from the campsites. The trails are also pretty boring and nothing more than a stroll.
This was our first time in our new camper. We are local and familiar with the park. Definitely look at pictures of your site before reserving. The distance between spots was good. Roads were a little narrow but manageable. Everyone was very friendly and with the exception of one neighbor, dogs were kept mostly quiet.
Great little fishing pier 2 minutes away walking. Good bike riding areas for kids. Ranger station is under construction. Not sure if it will be ready for 2018 season.
I’m not sure about other sites, but we did not have a water hookup, just a spigot we could fill from. The dump station worked fine and was clean. Power pole was in rough shape but worked.
Stayed in Primitive Area with RV which is MUCH QUIETER & MUCH MORE PRIVATE with many trees than the full hookups down in the main park area. The developed Campground is very "exposed" - not private, sites close to each other, no trees. Yuk. But closer to the water. It's a bit of a drive to Primitive Campground on not so good road, but worth it, I think.
The campground was primitive and the area is very nice. We had a great time here.
