8 Reviews of Little Buffalo State Park
A Hidden Gem In Central PA

The campground has approximately 35 sites, most with water and electric, which is rare for many PA state parks. The sites are mostly level, gravel, and good sized for averaged sized RV’s. Larger rigs may have some issues with site length on a few sites, so check ahead of time, but there are a couple pull through sites. Fire rings and picnic tables are at each site, but no wifi in the campground area. We did have cell phone service at our campsite.

The sites along the outer side of the look are more wooded than the inner sites.  The bathhouse is modern, very clean and well maintained. A playground is near bathhouse in the campground, along with several hiking trails. The dump station is easily accessible. Firewood is also available for purchase at the campground.

The campground is located across the road from the actual state park, which is beautiful and well maintained. A large lake is the centerpiece surrounded by multiple hiking trails, picnic areas, and a large swimming pool/aquatics area (in season). The road going to the park and campground is well maintained, with very wide shoulders for easy access, biking, and running. Fishing and boat rental are available on the lake.

We had a wonderful weekend at LBSP and plan to include it on our “Go-To” places to visit and camp.

Very nice!

We camped here over Columbus Day weekend. We wanted a quiet escape. We had one of the few full hook up sites. Very quiet and peaceful. Lots to do at the lake if you want or quiet enough to just kick back. Bath houses were very clean. Staff was pleasant.

Quiet place!

This place is so quiet and so well maintained! The trails are awesome and the swimming pool is great for the kids in the summer!

Wilderness at it’s best

Camping trails, grills to cook on but bring ur own charcoal, giant lake to fish and boat on, hiking for all experience levels, great fishing, lots of space, wildlife is everywhere and there is even an eagle nest in the park and you can see the pair and often their young. Also to meet your swimming needs an all ages pool with water slides and fountains to jump through. Pet friendly

Beautiful lake, great hiking and interesting historical sites.

Campground was small, clean and quiet. The showers kinda sucked since you it had water limits on them that only last 20 seconds before you had to hit the button again. But they were extremely clean. Not much luck fishing but all the turtles were cool and just paddling around in the kayak is always a good time. The hiking was good as well. There are trails with some neat little obstacles to work out on and the historical mill was well worth the trip. By the far the highlight of ours as well. Especially since they engaged the wheel and actually ground corn! It rained every day during our 3 night stay but no one can beat the weather our campsite did flood however.

Relaxing

This is a small campground but worth going to. Very nice park and clean bath house. They do have a pool but not included in the camping price and it gets very crowded. This campground is one you go to to just relax.

beautiful

First to Review
Camping or day use!

Little buffalo has a lot to offer! The campsites are spacious. There are standard tent sites available and there are water/electric site available. There is a dump station available for the end. You can book your site on line and go straight to your site! no check in required. If you are passing through and there are sites you can sign in by the honor envelops! The bathrooms are clean. It is nice and dark at night! Little buffalo does offer a variety of activities. The down side is they are across the street. I recommend you drive across because the road is a high speed limit and might not be safe to cross. They offer nice trails to hike. There is a large lake for fishing! You can rent boats there! There is a pool! The pool is very nice! They offer a large area that is only 1 foot deep, great for little ones! There is also a splash pad! There are 2 slides for fun! No food allowed in the pool but you can bring picnic lunch for outside the pool. Tons of picnic tables! There is a snack bar! 2nd downfall, you have to pay to get in the pool, yes even if you are camping!!! 3rd downfall, I am pretty sure it's the most expensive state park in PA! Even with the downfalls it's still a great place to visit! Kids love it there! Happy Camping!
