Prince Gallitzin State Park's Crooked Run Camp Ground is really the best in the area. We have been camping for almost 15 years. We have tried many other places for a "new experience" but always end up returning to PGSP, as locals we refer to it as Glendale. We only live 25-30 min from the campground, but it's like entering another world. Turn off your phones bc they scarcely work; although there is now wifi for $7 / day. It's not great but if you need to reply to a few work emails it will do the job. Texting family elsewhere on the state park grounds is iffy depending on your carrier. Bathroom facilities are clean and plentiful. Even when the park is crowded everything is cleaned daily and supplied adequately. Showers have warm water, and there are water pumps elsewhere in the park. Although we do usually pack drinking water, I've never seen a problem with the spigot pumps - other reviews said not to drink it, but I think they're full of mud! The trails are awesome. We always book a pet friendly spot in RedOak. There are several pet-access areas. If you are a first timer, ask for a map at check in, otherwise, it's easy to take the wrong trail. The beach is always hopping and my daughters rented kayaks. The water is clean & clear. There are many beautiful and peaceful places to sit and appreciate the day. Each loop seems to have something ... giant sandbox, play area, beach, horseshoe pits, amphitheater, bike riding loop... its fantastic. Pic your preference. We have never had any problems with the staff or hosts - PGSP does a great job.
