Ole Bull is always one of our go to campgrounds! The sites are spread out so your comfortable and your neighbors are always nice and willing to talk or lend a hand. Bathrooms were clean as always. And the trails for hiking are kept maintained very well. We love Ole Bull! Don't forget to stop in the office and get your stamp for your state park passport book!
Ole Bull State Park and the Surrounding ￼ Susquehannock State Forest are breathtaking and certainly live up Potter County’s nickname of Gods Country.
We set up camp at a site along Kettle Creek, and we saw half a dozen campers walking back to their sites with trout caught within walking distance.
Next time we go back, and there will be a next time, I’m going to try and secure site #81 it seems to be the only waterfront site that isn’t in the kids only fishing section.
The only draw back, at least for me, was I needed to drive about 15-20 minutes from the park to get cell service.
This park is in Potter County in the PA Wilds. The campsites are flat, some in full shade and others out in the open. Electric sites are available with water access to fill tanks but no water hookups. The bath houses are well maintained with newer renovations, tiled floors, shelves over the sinks, large stainless steel utility sinks for dish washing. Firewood is available 24 hours on the honor system for $6 per bundle. The campground hosts are right next to the ranger station in case the ranger isn't in.
There is a lot to do in the park; hiking, fishing, swimming in Kettle Creek, horseshoes, swings and playsets, and several charcoal grills and picnic tables for day use. This is a great location if you want to explore the area, Ole Bull is less than 20 minutes away from Cherry Springs Dark Sky preserve. It is an hour and 30 minutes from Kinzua Bridge State Park, The PA Grand Canyon is near by, and the Town of Wellsboro. Its also near Route 6 Scenic Highway.
Camped here since I was a little kid. Great place for groups and kids. There is a park, water to swim in, fishing, biking and hiking trails. Electric hookups and firewood for sale. Always friendly folks here.
wonderful campground with lots of things to do. Hike, Fish, Swim, Ride bicycles. quiet place under the tall pines!!!
the Park Manager held a 12 hour mountain bike race from the park. The first year we camped in tents and the second year of the race we had the one and only cabin in the park. It was beautiful.
Our first night we had a couple hundred pound bear climb the tree outside of the cabin. Park personnel came around and monitored the bear until it came down and left. It was spectacular!!!
If you like small quiet get always with the thrill of seeing wildlife then this is the place for you!
