We live locally but this is one of the best places around here for a getaway! Beach is fun and has a great concession. No cell service but really who needs it? The whole park is great for the whole family.

We visited Ricketts Glen State Park and stayed overnight in the campground in May 2013. The park and waterfalls are absolutely terrific. Camping was also a very pleasant experience. I will just list some notes and tips here.
* For weekend stay, reserve sites in advance. We booked ours about a month before the trip, and by that time most lakeside sites were already booked. And it was May, when trees are still lacking foliage;
* Not all sites are created equal. Some are large, some are small. Some have plenty of space in between, some have none. We had no choice but to pitch our tent close to an adjacent site. It was Ok, but later in the evening, when everybody retired to their tents and the air grew quiet, we've become an inadvertent witnesses to their, well... happiness being together;
* Sites are limited to either one family or 5 people, but there is no limit to the number of tents;
* All sites have picnic tables and fire rings. But not all fire rings have grills attached. If you are planning on having a barbecue, bring your own grill;
* Bring your own firewood as well, and buy it locally. We've got ours at Red Rock corner store;
* Restrooms and showers are clean and very nice to have. The only little thing is that they don't have doors between the restroom and shower so restrooms feels a little like Turkish bath.

Enjoy!

Where to start with this beautiful park! We camped 2 nights and it was nothing short of wonderful. The campsites are not too close but close enough that you aren't secluded from others. Every site has ample room (we had 2 large tents) and all of the camping essentials with room to spare. Almost all sites have a view of the lake, the staff is very friendly and helpful, and the showers/restrooms were some of cleanest I have seen at a state park. Word of advice keep trash away as the Racoons were all over the place! The falls trail is an absolute must! Although it can be slick and a bit terrifying at points it is well worth it! Expect the hike to last about 4 hours, be ready to take a ton of pictures and just be amazed at the true beauty of mother nature. Be sure to pack a lot of water, snacks, and wear really good shoes (hiking shoes are best). You can walk up to a couple of the falls so make sure they are waterproofed or bring water shoes along. Although it seems like a long hike and is definitely a difficult trail the pure beauty keeps the mind off of the "exercise" and length of the hike. I would highly recommend this park to anyone of ability. I would not recommend for children as it is very long and a bit dangerous (would make me a nervous wreck), or for people who are not in good physical health. There are a ton of other trails however and you can still see some of the waterfalls without doing the Falls Trail so don't stay away for that reason :) Seen a ton of dogs on the hike and was pretty impressed, my dog would of keeled over so if fido is able bring them along as all the water would be a field day! Very much looking forward to visiting again!

We had a great time at this campground. I wish we'd known to reserve a site on the lake - Call and speak to someone to get the best site for you. Once we moved to a lake-shore site we put our chairs down on the lake to eat our meals there. It was beautiful. The sites are private enough, level, clean. Bathrooms are OK, don't have to high expectations - but they are adequate if you're not very picky. They aren't buggy and there is sometimes warm water. The service is fantastic, the boat rental great with reasonable prices and excellent, friendly service. The hiking gorgeous - do bring sturdy shoes but we did fine with our sturdy 'sneakers' and didn't need boots - though they would have been nice as it is very rocky terrain. There's a small store at the bottom of the mountain, (non in the park) but head up 118 a mile or two and on the left is a guy selling firewood at a decent price (the park had run out when we were there). Enjoy!!

We stayed in the cabins located at Rickett's Glen State Park for 2 nights and 3 days. The hiking was fantastic as we saw 20+ different waterfalls and spent the morning trekking up and down the trails (bring a camera!). The cabin itself was very clean and easy to maintain. We had a campfire everynight and enjoyed the fresh air.
