This is a nice park. Everyone we interacted with was great. Our site was a walk in site, as in we parked our car and walked up stairs to the actual site. It was obscured from view of other sites, which was nice. There was a level pad for our tent, with some kind of wood mulch. We were quite far from the restroom. Overall, the views were spectacular and the park was kept clean. Would definitely come back here when we can stay longer than one nite.
They need a larger pet area. The camping is great. Love the hiking trails
No cell service, which is refreshing. The sound of the creek nearby is really soothing. Sites are well maintained and well organized, though a little close together. Sites 65 and 66 look like the best ones available, as they are up off the road a bit so they have a bit more privacy. The walk in sites (58-61) look nice too, but only if you are going with a group and book them all, as you have to walk through one of the sites to get to some of the other ones.
Bathrooms are clean, but only one shower (at least in Loop B). Also a tip- the sites are down the road from the Office, so I recommend arriving during daylight hours so you don't have a hard time finding them.
Great place to visit. Especially during the fall to watch the leaves change. Easy hiking trails. I love having a 3 day weekend and taking a quick drive up here to the quiet and scenic views
My sister and I spent a weekend here. We went on the Butternut trail and the World’s End trail. The views were beautiful and so worth it. I was not a fan of the gravel portion of trail on the Butternut trail. Camping was Ok. My 6-person tent just barely fit on the wood chip pad provided. I wish this was noted when we made the reservation. When looking at other sites, it seems that most of the pad sites are on the smaller side.
loved camping here! close to Ricketts Glenn which gets booked up quick in the summer so easy to make a day trip to see the falls, nice little campsites, was able to pick one a little more secluded with trees around and the “tent” area had a nice flat spot with a pile of compacted wood chips so we didn’t have to deal with sleeping on any rocks or avoiding roots! the campground itself is on the smaller side but has a few hiking paths, and a driving path, up to the lookout! very beautiful, was really happy we found this place after the realization kicked in that we had waiting too long to get a site at Ricketts Glenn 😂 but it’s probably for the better! we got to have a little more privacy, and still took a trip to hike the falls!
nice group camping area
Worlds end is the best. Really nice campground, good bathroom facilities with hot water showers. Some of the sites in the first loop are pretty close to the road so avoid those if possible. So much to do here in the summer: swimming, fishing, hiking. Amazing sunsets and Mountain View’s. You have to go!
A great place to just cut away from the push and pull of life and relax in a hammock under the afternoon sky. Have camped here since I was a young boy, 55 now, and don't remember a bad trip.
We had the pleasure of renting a cabin at World's End State Park for the first time in February 2016 after being convinced by friends to check it out. We were immediately in love with the babbling river that ran right beside our cabin. On cold days and nights we could stay warm under our roof covered front porch fireplace and still enjoy being outside. There is no better place to curl up with a book and some coffee on a cold, winter morning. The cabins stay very warm with a wood burning stove- sometimes even too warm and windows need to stay cracked open. We purchased wood from a local gentleman who delivered. A list of these services are available inside the check-in area, which also serves as a cool local mini-museum of sorts. There are several amazing lookout spots in the area that you can access via car. The cabins generally sleep 6-8 very comfortably with 4 double bunk beds in most. The cabins also have electricity and include a stove and refrigerator. There is no plumbing, so no sink or toilet but there are several very well maintained and equipped bathroom houses throughout the cabins area. The bathrooms are private and have showers and dishwashing stations. If you are looking for comfort, bring your own good camp chair. The cabins are only equipped with wooden chairs and a wooden bench seat. As soon as we left the park and were able to access cell phones again, I booked another cabin for myself and kids for their Spring Break in April 2016. This may become a tradition as we had a fantastic time hiking the area in the Spring. Butternut trail is right in the campground and is a perfect two-hour hike for kids who don't mind a good hike. There are some tricky spots, but it's manageable and well worth it when you reach the lookout at the top. The folks at the welcome center are knowledgeable and can point you in the direction of some great local trails. Forksville General Store is also nearby and there you can get cell service and a nice meal. The owners were regionally from Philadelphia and according to my son, make a fantastic cheesesteak. We are excited to visit World's End again this spring and winter. We have not visited in the summer but hear that it gets more crowded. We have friends that recently stayed there in a tent campsite and had a great visit.
