Awkward and open.

We specifically picked a campsite that was secluded because we just wanted a quiet getway. We got a spot that required 4 wheel drive but we were all for it since we have a Jeep and it was secluded. Well, the Jeep still got roughed up because of the GIANT boulders going up to the site- not cool. Also we get up to the top and we have neighbors that we could see quite clearly only about 15 yards away, and every time they squatted to go to the bathroom in the woods we could see them which was kind of awkward. It wouldn't have been as big of a deal if we weren't specifically told it was a secluded spot which is why we went there. We walked around and it seems like the majority of the sites are right on the driving path. The people who run the place are super nice and check in to see if you are ok and have great stuff at their general store that don't rip you off.

Lots to do not as private as others

I grew up going to French Creek camping with my family so I'm glad that I have started going back as an adult, as there have been many upgrades. The sites are close together, but there is a lot of greenery between so there is privacy. This is a state park so no alcohol. People always flip out when they get a fine for "quietly drinking a single beer"… Well yeah that's still alcohol. The grounds offer a lot to do between the pool, boating, trails playgrounds. It's safe if you have kids with bikes. Just an overall good time. There are multiple loops to camp in so you have the option of hookups and water and also loops that allow pets. The bathroom was great in our loop, can't speak for the others.


This park has primative camping which is nowhere near the buzz of RV sites. You have access to probably some of the nicest bathrooms I've ever experienced while camping. The sites are secluded, you can keep a car for ith you. They provide firewood if you need it. The grounds are maintained, level and grassy, so no rock piles to avoid while setting up your tent. Access to boating and trails. Love this place!

Our go to!

This is a great spot for camping both alone and with friends. It is right off the Pinnacle Trail so you have access to great hikes and amazing views. The campsite has a great community calendar, and although I personally have never participated, I know that other campers have a wonderful time. They have free bathroom and shower stations that are always maintained regularly, plus they have outhouses scattered throughout the grounds. I also like that there are areas for what you are looking for. I am a tent camper, and it's great to be able to camp without getting stuck near an RV with it's hookups running. My only complaint is that the last time we were there, they had cut down some trees and the ground was wonky on our site.
