Clean family friendly and walking distance to the overlook of the Grand Canyon. Bathrooms are clean and well maintained. Sites are large with plenty of room. Park Rangers are kind and available if needed. Kid area playground.
Very clean, nice roomy sites, fire rings with grates, clean bathrooms and showers, quiet, ranger patrolled, beautiful wildlife, many outdoor activities close by, on top of a mountain, PA Grand Canyon just steps away along with 60+ miles of rails to trails thru wilderness
Great clean campground with clean free showers. the campground het a nice playground for the kids and spacious spots with hookups. Accessible directly from the park is the Turkey Trail, a 1.5'ish mile hike down the mountain to the river, doable for many age group's. The views of the 'other Grand Canyon' are just breathtakingly beautiful! you must visit this place!
Will definitely go back!
The campground is pretty decent. The part you want to go See is the biking trails on the pine Creek rail trail. The look out at the little PA Grand Canyon. Kayaking in the water. hiking on the trails too.
Campground was clean and well kept. Hiking was amazing with spectacular views! Go check this place out!!!
26 campsites in a loop near the primary viewing area for the PA Grand Canyon AKA Pine Creek Gorge. This park is on the east rim and it is definitely the more touristy of the two rim parks, Colton Point being on the west rim. Turkey trail takes you down into the gorge onto the Pine Creek Rail Trail and along the creek. It's a very well maintained trail, so don't be deterred by all the doomsday signage, it's very doable, albeit steep on the way back up.
The campground is located at the entrance to the vista area. It is a small campground, 20 or so sites. The facilities are almost brand new and very clean.
We were there during the week and there were only 3 other campers in the campground.
There is a lot of wildlife around. Deer come right through the campsites. Many raccoons too so you must stow your food in the evening.
There is a hiking trail that will take you down into the canyon. It is a mile or so and pretty steep, but well maintained. Portions are steps. There are a few waterfalls to view on the way down.
At the bottom you will pass the rails to trail and run into pine creek. If you walk to the left to where it gets deep. You will find some of the best fishing ever.
