I know this are well. I used to live in Bellefonte, PA which was about 10 miles from here. I spent a lot of time driving on the roads into and out of the park. In my opinion, you haven't really learned to drive until you've driven on a loose gravel road for 9 miles plus. So when you go... More

Yes you have to drive on dirt roads to get there but it is worth it. Choose this state park to detox from the electronic world by putting away your cell phone and lifting your head to view a lovely lake and mountains. Hiking trails for every level of exertion. Choose the nature trail or a section of the Mid... More

We have stayed here a number of times at campsites, have made day trips for picnics/swimming, or, even a couple of winter weekends in one of the comfortable but small cabins. There is a nice sand beach with safe swimming for young and old. Fishing over the lake (boat rentals) or downstream from the dam. Usually fairly quiet camping, and... More

My family loves coming to this little state park. Getting to this place is like going into a different world, which is exactly the type of replenishment I need for the soul. Sure, it's a bumpy road, but the drive is beautiful. Some of the nearby vistas are amazing but my kids favorite activity is swimming in the mountain lake.... More

If you love to be off the grid then this is the place for you. At the end of an 8 mile gravel road you will find a very spacious clean and wonderful campground. All buildings were new in 2009 I believe. Canoe, kayak rentals, hiking, scenic views! My wife and 2 toddlers had a great time with no cellphone... More

I'm not sure if every way to get into the park is like this, but coming in from 322, you drive on narrow, bumpy, dirt roads for about 10 miles, causing some damage to our car. Make sure you have a jeep or some kind of car that can handle back roads. The park itself was nice, nothing out of... More

Just spent 5 days camping here and it was wonderful. No crowds during the week, small campground, very clean bathrooms and showers. Very dog friendly, just about the only place you can't take your dog is in the buildings and on the beach. The lake was wonderful, the dog and I went kayaking every. We went wading and hiking and...

Found this gorgeous state park years ago while visiting the area. One of the routes to get there takes you up and over a "tree mountain" as our daughter calls it, on a gravel narrow road which can be challenging if a vehicle is coming the other way! Views from the top are gorgeous and you will be rewarded at... More

We stayed here in April and were very pleased to see how well kept everything was including the bathhouse! For it not being "in season" yet the bathhouse was spotless! The campground is small and quiet. There are only a few pet sites in the loop. The lake is a short walking distance from the campground. We enjoyed listening to... More

Love this state park in the Bald Eagle State Forest. Has a nice lake with a beach and consession. Lake has bream and trout and a few pickerel. Nice hiking trails and picnic areas too. They allow charcoal in the fire pits too. Come and enjoy a relaxing day in the mountains.
