Beautiful facilities, rocky sites

Pros: -beautiful new bathrooms -private lakeside walk-in sites -beavers! Far away but exciting nonetheless -the Conservation Walk on the island is short, easy, and beautiful. Well-marked.

Cons: -chunky bluestone gravel on the sites, so bring a sleeping pad! -has a beach but it's not much to look at -sites have nice sizable fire pits, but they are very tall. It's difficult to cook over them, and sitting around the campfire in the evening is a much less visually appealing experience than I'd like

We stayed in site 157. Accessible via a path from the designated parking space to the site about 2 minute walk. Lakeside, but visibility not great due to vegetation. All sites have little trails down to the water.

Site 174 by the road and less private, but prettily overhung by evergreens.

The cabins look very nice inside.

Beautiful hiking

No hook ups and bathrooms can get dirty. Sites are fairly private. Lake is great for kayaks and the falls hiking trail is amazing.

Great state park

Bring your bikes and kayaks. Camped here numerous times. Some sites full hook up, and some more private than others. Nice bike loop around lake, many hiking trails, beach to swim and watch sunset. Does get crowded because it is popular. Lower lake campground is less crowded but sites close together and not as nice a view.

Oasis in the woods

Adult only campsite that is LGBTQ friendly and clothing optional. I am a heterosexual female in a monogamous relationship but it's mostly gay men here and about 1 in 10 are nude. Our first impression was ok this is interesting lol but after seeing like the 15th penis you get desensitized to it. Everybody who worked there were super friendly and inviting, especially Allen (he goes by Gladys when he dresses up). The campsite has a pool, cafe, volley ball courts, lanai, yoga, Friday and Saturday night events with great music and an even better crowd. It honestly felt like a resort at times even though we were camping in our tent. They have cabins, rvs, tent sites galore and the scenery is beautiful. Can't recommend it enough!!!

Huge Family Friendly Campground

This was our first trip to Keen Lake as a family. We took advantage of their "Gas Saver" program, which got us 4 weekends, including Labor Day weekend. Some of the sites are on the smaller side. It's HUGE so having a vehicle is almost necessary to get around. Campground and bathrooms were clean and well kept. Saturday night activities/music was a big hit with the kids. Pool is small but clean. Lake front beach is open and clean, but more rock than sand. Lots of rentals for water sports. Overall a great experience.

Serenity on the lakes

Pretty campground with lots of lake views. We arrived just before dark which was good because the sites were not level front to back. Most sites had a slope but there were some level sites. You can kayak, canoe, paddle board, and fish on the lake. There are 2 boat launches. The store wasn’t much to speak of. Bath houses were clean. We walked around the lake on a paved level path. They advertise no alcohol. This is near the Pioneer Tunnel Coal Mine tour which we loved. It’s near the Yingling Brewery tour.

A nice escape!

Our first visit to a PA state park and we couldn't have picked a nicer park to begin with. Stayed in the Pet Loop in our 19ft trailer. Site was nice and long and fairly level. Lots to do at the park - checked out Boulder field, hiked the shades of death trail, and took our two pups on several walks that they loved. Nice quiet campsite, checked out several other nice sites for future visits.

Incredible waterfalls

Excellent views and the ability to explore and experience the waterfalls areas. Beach and lake activities are available as well.

Falls are worth the hype

Spent 3 nights at Ricketts Glen with my partner.

We took Falls Trail on a Monday morning around 9:30am and there were a few people on the trail already. By the time we finished the trail around noon, the entire parking lot was full. Definitely recommend an early start!

The beach is a one mile walk from the Big Loop, but very doable in flip flops. Nice and clean with rentals available.

Grandview trail was our last trail of the trip. A quick two miler that’s well marked and a fun quick hike.

Note to any campers: the turf at the campsite is HARD. If you’re trying to put stakes in the ground to secure your tent, you’ll need heavy duty stakes. We bent a few of our metal stakes and had to buy a rubber mallet to get anywhere (and still struggled).

Red Rock Corner Store is at the “base” of the park is a nice go-to for ice, soda, or last minute camp needs.

No cell service for me or my partner at the site (T-Mobile and Verizon), which we loved, but isn’t for everyone.
