Not a bad state park but certainly not great. The bathrooms were very clean and nice compared to the countless other state parks we have been to through Michigan to Florida. The marking/signage in this park is awful, they have one sewage dump receptacle and water hose which is half way in the camping area. The potable water is not labeled and has no hose on it just a fresh water pipe from the ground just before the sewage dump. Most of the sites are small on the outside loop which is all I would consider, since all the inside sites are just in a open field with no shade. Be careful when looking at site pictures if you make reservations they are very good at taking deceiving angle pics(I spend a lot of time trying to find a perfect private site and ours listed that it would fit a 30' camper with slideout, it did indeed barely, my slide was almost touching the power box). There is no camp store of any size, no DNR station at entrance to the camping area either, that would be located at one of the entrances to the park and off a side road about a mile away from the entrance to the camping area. Firewood has to purchased from locals and I would visit the second home that's on the left who tarps the wood and is priced better than the first house who leaves small divided piles out uncovered and only about 6 sticks per pile for 5 bucks. They do have trails but really no detailed description of anything interesting like rock formations small creeks with rapids or anything. It was quiet and relaxing we had the camp ground pretty much to ourselves most of the time. The pool was very nice and really the only thing the kids enjoyed a 8yo and 2yo. Overall a OK park but wish we had camped further south like we do usually in Kentucky, Tennessee, Virginias or North Carolina where the parks have great trails and overlooks/viewing areas of the mountains(this park has a lot of potential but I guess Pennsylvania doesn't care for its camping tourism).
