Perfect

Whether you're staying at the campground itself or on the trail off the parking lot, you really can't get much better than this. Beautiful trails, accessible water from the river, sites on trail are plenty, and far between, to provide plenty of solitude. On the campground, I believe there are only…

Comes as advertised! Really nice spot!

The spot I stayed is right on the marker.  There are multiple spots along the main forest road. Some you can drive your car in and tuck it back. Other spots you cant take your car at all.   There are tons of logging roads that split off the main forest road. They mostly have gates that say "Logging…

Only Stopped For a Night, But Lots To Do!

This state park had a nice lake to paddle on, a solid general store, a huge beach area, kayak rentals, tennis courts, a basketball court, and more.

It was a perfect overnight stop as I made my way out of NY, but I would definitely come back for a longer stay!

Remote with multiple hiking trailheads at campground

Remote and quiet campground. About 20% occupied on a weekend in early August. We claimed one of the many FF sites that were open. Sites are all large with privacy between, generally level, partial or full shade. Lots of very tall trees. Vault toilets, pumps for potable water. Intermittent Verizon…

Quiet Weekend

The campground is well kept, the bathrooms are clean (a bit of a walk from this cabin), and the pool is inviting. Being tall, the bunkbeds were a challenge, so maybe have the kids stay in this one. Very close to Cook County State Park and Allegheny National Forest for fantastic hiking. Cell phone…

Great state park

What a great park. Was there in order to go to nearby Cherry Springs SP which is a certified Dark Sky area, to see the stars. Cherry Springs is about 8 miles away. We like staying at Lyman Run since Cherry Springs gets filled pretty quickly. Lyman Run campground is great. There are 2 campgrounds,…

Long overdue honeymoon

We tent camped at site 76. Secluded and beautiful. We had the whole side of the upper loop to ourselves! Bumped up against the nature trail for a quick hike. We fished at the small section opposite the swimming area. We were alone the entire time! This park is well kept and very very clean.…

Nice state park; sites can be a bit tight

This is a really pretty state park.  We stayed 2 nights in the upper campground which looks down on the lake.  We got there on a Thursday, stayed in a site with electric and it was really pleasant.  On Friday night the place filled up and we realize that the electric sites were pretty tightly…

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,…

Nice place

Initially we booked site 97. Upon arrival we found out that 97 is no longer a camp site. We were moved to site 14 thankfully they had one spot available for a fully booked weekend.

Our site 14 was nice and large had some shade from trees. The camp ground had trash cans available in multiple…

Stayed for the weekend at site 25 at the lower campground. Site was next to the bathrooms but no problems noise. Nice and quiet overall. Bathrooms were very clean with nice hot water in the showers. There are pit toilets but they are well maintained and there was no smell even though it was hot…

Peaceful and remote

It was fun trying to use maps along with gps to find our way to the campground. There is zero cell service/WiFi at the park, or for at least 5-10 miles from it. The sites are clean, flat, and spaced nicely on the northwest end, but a little too open and feels crowded on the eastern end. Bathrooms…
