Quiet and Friendly Staff

Clean well kept family owned campground. Located a few miles off 81, in the country surrounded by beautiful views. It’s a mix campground of seasonal campers and short term campers. Very family oriented. Very nice off leash fenced dog park.

Nice state park & facilities

Had an electric site- it was nice and level. The bathhouse was clean and nice. It rained pretty much the whole time but still had a good time. Lots of trails. Even though the park was packed it didn’t feel like it.

No phones, no firewood, endless supply of gas powered blowers

Let’s just start this review with our grading of the park it’s self. Five stars! Well maintained facilities, clean bath houses and gorgeous views at both the lake and multiple forest trails. Free Park map was very helpful in getting to trailheads and park office.

The park loses stars quickly…

Sooo Relaxing

Reeds Gap State Park is everything anyone who really just wants to relax needs. It’s only tents and it’s dog and family friendly! I’m from Philly and we don’t get to camp much but boy was this decision a winner! The only reason it isn’t 5 stars is because the bathrooms were down during our trip…

  • lot B bathroom we had to use since ours was down.

Quiet Peaceful Walk-to Site

This is a small campground with about half the sites being rustic electric back-in sites and the other being rustic walk-to tent sites. We stayed in the walk-to section. A lot of them are labeled "waterfront" by the park site but ours did not live up to that criteria so be aware of that. We were…

Perfectly located to complete the AT in Maryland in sections

We hiked from Harper's Ferry to Pen Mar on the AT and used this fabulous campground as a base station the entire 5 days.  The level and semi-private sites were excellent, although there were no water hook ups at each site.  We were allowed to fill the camper with water before we set up, which…

Great little campground

I’ve stayed here twice for camping trips. It’s a great small campground that has basic amenities. The experience is likely highly site dependent, as there are a few distinct areas to stay depending on your needs and luck. There is NO cell service and park rangers do “rounds” but aren’t stationed at…

  • Hike to overlooks from the campsite
  • The central loop of sites is on the creek but has very little privacy from neighbors.
  • Many of the RV (dog-allowed) loop sites are large and private.

Staff was very friendly and helpful throughout the weekend. Staff drives around periodically on a ranger and can be flagged down if help is needed. There is a fishing pond on site for the kids to fish. Not a huge place but it’s a nice place for a quick getaway. Curwensville lake is not too far…

Beautiful state park

We liked it so much we stayed another night. Quiet, wooded spots, with a very nice bathhouse, and good trails nearby. We would stay again.

Beautiful Private & Peaceful!

This campsite was absolutely perfect! The secluded area combined with the creek nearby made for a great escape from reality. The stars are so bright out here and the tent was absolutely fabulous! Definitely 10/10 recommend. Close access to state game lands and nearby hiking trails and fishing spots!

Loved staying here! Raystown lake is incredible for fishing and swimming and the campsites were nice. I wish we had a waterfront one but be aware that the speedboats on the lake make quite a lot of noise.

There is only compostable toilets and no showers but that didn’t bother us and was expected.…

Great people!

We went to Little Buffalo State Park for Labor Day weekend and had a blast! Great neighbors, lots of kids to play with, good playground and very clean facilities (cleaned daily). The driving path is gravel with a steep hill at the end so if you can help it I would avoid sites 32,34,36 as they are…
