Army Corp of Engineers Site at Youghiogheny Lake Dam

September 2020 Stay

This was a 1-night stay.  We stayed here because the nearby state parks we were interested in were full for the weekend.  It was OK given the circumstances, but I would prefer a state park.  The location was on the edge of town.  The campground is right up against some people's backyards on one side, separated by a fence.  So that felt a bit awkward and not really the secluded in-nature feel we're looking for when camping.  We were at site 33 which was on that side right by someone's backyard.  Sites were also fairly close with no trees or anything between for privay.

On the bright side, each site has a tent pad on gravel/dirt that is level with no rocks, tree roots, etc. that you might have elsewhere.  The site was also right along the GAP so it may be a good place to overnight if you're doing a long bike trip.
