We were travelling north on the I-81 and, instead of pulling off into one of the private campgrounds as we usually do, we decided to stay overnight at this park, It was a good decision. An extremely helpful ranger gave us a map and told...More

We decided to take the kids to the park and play in the creek. The streams are 30 to 40 ft wide and shallow but clean water. Look for all kinds of cool things. Cook you burgers and hotdogs for lunch on the charcoal grill....More

Our family enjoyed a weekend of camping and hiking here. The campground was quiet, but perhaps in need of some maintenance. We hiked about 7 miles of the Appalachian trail on a perfect Saturday and we were amazed that it wasn't crowded. The children enjoyed...More

We went primarily for the pool. Easily found a parking spot then enjoyed the walk along the stream to the pool area . It was clean and had two fairly attentive lifeguards on duty and a slide. The ladies restroom was horrible, so beware and...More

The park is, as all state parks are that we've visited, quite beautiful. However, the trail descriptions are misleading. We, my wife and I, took the Thaddeus Stevens Historical Trail. It was labeled "level, easy hiking." Um...no. Easy, yes, as in there were no big...More

The area is beautiful, woods, streams and nearby lakes. The campsites are close but even on busy weekend, no problems with noise. Heated bathhouse which could use some better cleaning/maintenance. Moldy shower curtains and lots of spiders but no fee for showers.

I don't know the prices since I only dispersed camped (camp for free in the forest not at established camp grounds). I do not work for this company but maybe they have a website with your info. good luck.

I cannot answer that question. We stayed at the Lodge, we only walked through the campground.
