Location… Located on approximately 35 acres at the confluence of Fishing Creek, and the Susquehanna River, Indian Head Campground offers grass covered, tree shaded sites for both RV's and tents, or more open sites if you prefer no trees. Tent sites are normally situated under trees, on grass, and have a table and fire ring. Water is close by, and our most popular tenting area is across from the restroom and shower building. The small pavilion is located there for tenters to use. There are more isolated tent sites near our boat ramp, and others may be found at various places around the campground. A very nice large, somewhat isolated and spacious area for group tent camping is available upon request.
Camping Sites… Our RV sites have a table and fire ring, 30 amp electric hookup, along with water. The RV unit will park on a gravel base, and is surrounded with grass and trees. We have a more open area that is popular with camping clubs. It has 30 amp electric and water, but no individual table or fire ring. A covered large pavilion is conveniently close by with a fireplace, tables, electric lights, and water for clubs to gather for meetings and meals.
The River… Our concrete boat launch at the mouth of Fishing Creek, places your boat just a lures throw from the Susquehanna River, an American treasure that originates in Cooperstown, New York, and empties into the Chesapeake Bay at Havre de Grace, Maryland. An ambitious plan is underway to map the river for boat or canoe trips with access points, boat launches, camping, historic points, hazards, waypoints, and other things of interest for a boating day trip, or more ambitious trips that you may wish to plan. Maps and guides will soon be available for purchase. Also underway is a project to utilize abandoned railroad lines, along with some private property, and create bicycling and hiking paths, allowing easy access from the campground onto the path.
Campground Store… We have a well stocked camp store that contains souvenirs, RV supplies, some limited food items that you may have forgotten, and some ice cream. We sell firewood for your campfires, and we have WiFi available for a charge.
A lot of old campers and other stuff at entrance of campground. Full hook ups, large pull through spots but no trees. Full timers are in tree line. Have to pay for WiFi.
Nice place, would return
This is a nice campground very laid-back. Not much to do at the campground but it is 20 minutes away from Knoebles. The fees are fairly cheap. Every time I have gone there I had a good time and I have gone here every summer for the last 20 years.
