Great campground in PA northern tier

The owners do a fantastic job keeping the campground shipshape. Restrooms/showers are immaculate any time of day. Heated swimming pool and the splash pad for kiddies is spotless as well. Nice, pull-through on gravel pad withfull-hookups that can take large rigs. Lake is lovely for fishing/kayaks/canoes. Seasonal campers are tidy. Only a few tent sites with water & electricity tucked into woods. Larger pull-through sites don't get a lot of shade, but there are back-in sites for shorter campers in wooded sites and shaded lake front, as well. Campground store sells ice-cream & nachos and supplies. Campground is pretty quiet during the week, but fills up on weekends with guests using own (or renting) golf carts. Activities on weekends. The campground sits atop one of NEPA's "rolling hills" in quiet, rural farming area. Cell service is spotty. Local winery/cafe just down the road for tastings and lunch. Row boat, paddle boat rentals.

Lakeside camping gem

Don't let the term "County Park" lead you to believe this campground is not up to par with larger campgrounds. All sites have 50 amp electric and water hook-up. It sits out on a peninsula on Lake Keowee in Seneca, SC. Almost every site is on the water, and those that aren't, have a water view. Most sites on the water are without shade, so be prepared in hotter months. You can go into the lake right from your site. If you don't have access from your site, there is a really nice sandy beach area for swimming. There is a nice store at the campground office where you can by camp wood at a very reasonable price.

Peaceful Big Woods Camping in "PA Wilds" region

So relaxing! Small state park campground. Lower campground has 50 amp electric. Well-kept, clean restroom/showers. Creekside sites let you drop kayak directly into creek. 40 ft max campers due to space/turning contraints. Not for class A rigs. Long campers up to that size should use south loop of lower campground. Large reservoir lake part of park 3 mi up from lower campground for more fishing/kayaking/electric trolling motors. Lots of wildlife; PA elk , Bald eagles. Be aware of timber rattlesnakes in area. Upper campground rustic, up on hill overlooking reservoir; no showers, must come to lower campground. Renovo closest town for fuel/groceries about 20 minutes away. No concession/supplies at park. State forest roads & trails for hiking & ATV's. Playground for kids. Reservoir area has large picnicking area, volleyball, lots of space, and best launch.There is cellular service, but it drops in some areas of park. The large damn up above lower campground keeps creek level steady even with heavy downpours. Creek by campground is gentle current, shallow. No swimming or wading allowed in creek campground area. Fishing from kayak/canoe or shore only. Gave it 4 stars only because they need more gravel in some sites and because DCNR should give more info on size contstraints.
