This rustic campground is located on the east bank of the Allegheny Reservoir just east of Elijah Run Boat Launch on Morrison Bay a branch off of Kinzua Bay of the Allegheny Reservoir. It is accessible by boat via the Allegheny Reservoir and/or the Morrison Hiking Trail. The closest boat launch is Elijah Run directly west of the campground (access from the Longhouse National Scenic Byway- Forest Road 262).
Quite popular in the summer. The sites were pretty spread apart and I didn’t see any other camera from my site.
We have camped at Morrison Campground for the last 5 years. There are approximately 28 primitive sites. While the surrounding area is somewhat remote there can be times when the sites are pretty full with luxury boat campers. If you are looking for peace and quiet stay away in July. Great hiking trails and good fishing. Abundant wildlife including Bears and Bald eagles. Each site has a picnic table and a fire pit with a cooking grate. There are two communal outhouses. Bring plenty of water and bug spray. Depending on the wind direction the stable flies can get pretty bad. $5 a day to park and $12 a day for the site. 4 stars.
Definitely worth the 3 hours hike from nearest car parking. About 32 camp sites First come first serve, $12 fee for each night. The water is ver beautiful to swim specially at night when the moon is bright.
Getting to the spot is either a challenge or just a bit of a downhill hike. The rimrock side is a challenge and gets muddy and steep at points. The campground itself is nice and kinda spread out. Nice spots at the water and there were a lot of people there when my group arrived. Lots of friendly people and it is a nice spot by the reservoir.
I hiked the loop and slept here. It gets buggy at dusk, time to hide inside the tent when the woods start buzzing and humming. beautiful views of the reservoir.
