This is a very nice Campground. We used to Camp there back in the 80s, now I see they have added more electric and full hookup sites. We had site 371 Cherry. Behind us was the host and two other. Sites. In front of us was all primitive sites. They were all very nice, I would like to see some of them have electric. The sewage was way in the back, our sewage hose was stretched out to the max. The electric,which was both 30 and 50 and the water was on the left of the trailer. The bf said the bathrooms were nice. There was a swing set behind the site a ways. A lot of the full hookups are on the main road, this was on a side road which was nice. The campground is big, the site was roomy, and all in all was very nice. We will definitely come back again .

I have been attending a family reunion for over fourth years in this area. As kids we frequented the lake during the hot month of August often!
There are cool things to for all!
Swim, boat, kayak, hiking, cook out etc.. there are cabin rentals not far from the lake also.

I come out here routinely to enjoy all the various things the park has to offer. The hiking is excellent, as well as all the places you can go biking. Several scenic places along the trails to stop for photos. Fishing can be hit or miss, (I've been coming here for 20+ years and it's earned the nickname "The Dead Sea" for a reason) but when they're biting expect a good catch. Kayaking is excellent here and offers plenty of area to paddle. Campsites are always nice and the bath houses are clean. Definitely a family friendly place. I love it here and I'll continue to visit.

If you want a laid back place to fish, camp canoe, kayak or swim, this is the place to go. It is a family friendly state park nestled in the northern part of Cambria County in PA. It is a wonderful place just to get away and become attuned to nature.
