Great family campground, awesome playground and other kid stuff and a nice newer pool. Fishing pond and great store and ice cream shop. Would definitely go back here!
Was planning on camping at Cherry Springs but it was full for the weekend and decided to say here. Great location to camp with family and friends.very quiet campgrounds, clean bathrooms, and the beach at the reservoir makes for a great day of swimming or fishing. About a 10 or 15 minute drive to the observatory field. Highly recommend taking a night to head up there.
We decided to go mid October due to a new moon and a trip to Cherry Springs to see the stars! Ole Bull was just a short drive from Cherry Springs and they had everything we needed except the firewood they said they sold. This was ok though because there was a lovely couple down the road that sold wood cheaper and the first time we went they were all out but they ended up delivering the wood to us at our campsite! We went hiking and although it was cold it really was the perfect get away!
Petticoat Junction campground is nestled in the PA Grand Canyon with Pine Creek on one side and the Rails to Trails on the other of the campground. This ideal location provides a nice tranquil environment with opportunities for active adventures. It had been several years since our last stay at PJC, but the new owners have done amazing improvements and upgrades to many areas of the campground which are greatly appreciated. Everyone we interacted with(owners/employees) were friendly and gave us the feeling that they were glad we chose to stay with them.
There are a variety of camping options from season sites, primitive sites, cabins, glamping tents, and RV hook-ups for water and electric(along the creek). We stated in one of the water/electric hook-up sites along the creek, which was wonderful. Very flat and larger than average in size, which was nice not being on top of your neighbor. Water pressure was very good and the WIFI signal was better than many campgrounds we have stayed.
The location of PJC is perfect for fishing, floating/kayaking, and biking/hiking the rails to trail. There are many nearby hikes throughout the canyon for the more adventures travelers. The office has biking/tubing/boating rentals for its campers. Additionally the firewood for sale is priced well and is very good quality, not the cheap smoky pine found in most places. If you need a break from civilization to reset and relax, I highly recommend PJC!
Our site was right along the river, the view was amazing and the site was huge. There is so much to do. We should have looked into a pass to do more because the extras can get expensive. But everything is right there and you never have to leave so it's worth it in my opinion. The pool was great, the kids loved the water slides. The mini golf when we went in 2019 was in a little rough shape but it was still fun. They may have fixed that by now. They always have a lot going on and no one should get bored there. The playground was really nice. The bathrooms by the river were a little run down but it's camping so they served their purpose. I recommend this place to everyone and look forward to going back soon.
We have stayed here with family before and had our first RV stay on our own this fall. Beautiful campground, most sites are wooded. We had a sewer site so I'm not sure how the bathrooms are. Lots to do if you want or it's just as great sitting around the fire relaxing or getting ice cream at the store. Our site was along the main road and we expected a lot of traffic, but it was actually pretty quiet. There is a petting zoo, jump pillow, and regularly scheduled activities. Can't wait to go back next year!
