There are several different camping areas within the park. Some areas are pet friendly while others are not. Some sites have hookups while others are primitive. There is an area for everyone! Be sure to check out the hiking trails and the beach!!
This campground was nice. The campsites themselves were a bit small, but the lake and boating were great and the showers were good
Beautiful State Park!! Great beach area for swimming and kayaking. Beware of bears!!
Big sites with 30 amp service available for RVs and trailers. Each site has a large picnic table and a fire ring with an adjustable grate. The pull-through sites don’t offer much in the way of privacy, but that’s the trade off for convenience. There are two potable water spigots in the campground. The bathhouse offers warm showers, 2 dishwashing sinks, and a coin-operated washer and dryer. The facilities are kept very clean. On the weekends it can get pretty crowded, so it tends to be louder at night then, but the camp hosts and the rangers do a good job of enforcing quiet hours. Access points to several trails are very near the campground. As with all PA state parks, alcohol is prohibited. The park doesn’t have a camp store, however, there is a small general store on Route 390 (The Lake Store) just north of the park that would have any essentials you may have forgotten, as well as ice for your cooler.
Quiet and clean. Multiple sites on different sides of the lake with options for tents and RVs, both with and without hookups. The lake can get a little crowded and the bathroom can get messy, but very family friendly.
biking, kayaking, hiking. some full hook up sites. one of my favorite places. old CCC museum and ranger programs. great place for a long weekend.
because of the cold we chose to stay in one of the cabins. Perfect option if you still want the rustic camping experience but prefer to not freeze to death. There are bunk beds and a small table with chairs and the cabin is also equipped with electrical outlets, a patio with picnic table, and a fire ring. Got to see a bald eagle by the lake and hike beside a waterfall. I want to come back and check it out in the summer, but even in the winter this was a great choice.
Went camping in late October, when a lot of the other parks are closed. Only one section of their camping was still open but the bathrooms and showers had been winterized. Stayed in a beechwood area camp site. Was told it was a tent only spot but the layout was not great for tents. We used a three person tent and it was tight to fit in the site. Each site comes with a fire ring and picnic table. Only select sites allow dogs. Park staff were super friendly and helpful. The park and surrounding forest have lots of hiking and multiple lakes.
Ive always has a great time here, but this last time I was not happy. There was a raccoon outside of our tent that scared all of my kids!
Promised Land has several campgrounds, but Pickerel Point is our favorite. Some sites are right on the lake, just put the kayak on the shore, and you're ready for an early morning paddle. Another nice feature is the beach at the end of the peninsula - no need to drive to the crowded day use area. Bathrooms are the nicest I've ever seen in a campground. Available sites range from walk-in to RV hookups. There's plenty of hiking and fishing in the park, and even more to do not far away. It just isn't summer unless we spend some time at our favorite home away from home!
