The Perfect Spot

We have a camper, but wanted to take the kids tent camping for a change, and this was the perfect place. It’s first come first serve, but we lucked out with a huge spot, shady, right beside the gorgeous creek, and also the closest to the toilet (which did occasionally send a slight scent our way,…

Wonderful experience

Had a very nice time over the 4th of July weekend. Even tho it was busy for the holiday, the camping was relaxing.

Nostalgic

My family has headed to this spot for years… it family friendly, has decent fishing, miles of trails, and a small beach. Also zero cell reception! Check out Kinzua dam and Jakes Rock nearby.

Great Spot

We loved it here. I hiked in with my kids. Easy hike and doable with kids if they are used to hiking. Lots of spaces, but it can get crowded on the weekends. The vault toilets were convenient. It is bear territory so brought a bear cannister, but I didn't hear of anyone having any issues.

Laid back

Nice little campground. Very quiet. Sites are generously sized. Roads are paved. The lake is very small with a swimming beach area.

Resort like campground

This campground is very well taken care of, and huge! We did not take advantage of all of the amenities available, but the bathroom was great. It was a single room with toilet and shower - and it was incredibly clean. 

We opted for a premium pull-thru site, which included furniture and a…

Allegany, Quaker Lake

Went in June, they were basically just opening. Grass wasn’t cut, got nasty bites from chiggers. Quaker store had essential gear but it was left over from last season. Just wouldn’t recommend going in June. Save it for July or August. 

  • We saw fire flies and listening to an American Woodcock which is a very rare bird

Okay campground

Overall a nice campground! The sites were nice and big. Our site was perfect!! There were very limited sites that had shade! A lot of their sites were in an open field. They had a huge pool that was advertised as heated but was so cold it felt like they dumped ice cubes in it. I wish they had more…

Gangs of unruly kids on bikes

We used to enjoy this campground. Nice paved roads inside, fairly level sites depending on location. Some sites are very private and others are open with no privacy. In the back loop the sites are set up for group camping, so if not traveling with multiple friends/family with campers avoid those…

Try to stay once a year

This has become a very popular campground and reservations fill quickly. We usually try for an entire family outing here once a year in October. Very nice, clean campground on the river. We have stayed in sites and a cabin, but never one of the yurts. Family friendly and not overly crowded.

  • view from the cabin we stayed in

Really cool, remote spot

Arrived to a nearly empty campground. Only a few people on a weekday.

No firewood on site, so bring it with ya. Really good, cold water from the well!

Little bit of Verizon coverage.

Bad news - Gypsy moths are everywhere!!!!

Beautiful lake site, infested with Gyspy Moth caterpillars.

We booked this campsite in February and we were not told of the Spray block to be used to treat that part of the forest for Gyspy Moth caterpillars that filled our campsite. We were pelted for 4 days with droppings and leaf particles from them eating the oak trees. Other than that, the site was…

Campground in Allegheny National Forest

Nice location near the water. Campground has three sections to it. Once you come in the main enterance, off to your right are nice walk in tent sites. Off to the left are two loops for tent and RV camping. There are two bath houses, one near each loop. They each have three hot water showers,…

Open Campground

We don’t live far from this campground, so it was a quick weekend trip in early April. Early April in western Pennsylvania means overnight temperatures in the 40’s and highs in the 50/60’s. The campground sits at the top of a ridge, with an uphill climb if coming from the south. We stayed in…

Beautiful campground on the edge of a lake

A favorite 2-night stay out of 20 stops on a 7-week road trip in our 17' travel trailer. Happy to have full hook-ups. Very clean pit toilet across the road and clean, well-equipped bathhouse nearby.
