Pennsylvania is home to state park RV camping adventures too numerous to count. In honor of late summer campers, we’ve narrowed it down to three special spots every RV camper should visit before summer is gone. Let us know if you go! We’d love to hear your stories in the comments section below.
Worlds End State Park
Pennsylvania’s Endless Mountains provide the perfect setting for end-of-summer fun. Worlds End State Park, an hour west of Kingston, PA, is tucked in a lush, green valley cooled by the waters of Loyalsock Creek.
Let the family swim, fish for trout and hike the rugged trails before coming home to your campsite in the forest. With 30-amp sites available, you can be comfortable while enjoying the beauty of this scenic valley. Here’s a brochure from Pennsylvania’s Department of Conservation on the recreation opportunities at Worlds End State Park.
Cook Forest State Park
Western Pennsylvania’s Cook Forest State Park is the place to go for late summer hiking and paddling. The Clarion River, a shallow waterway safe for family canoe, kayak and tubing adventures, splashes along through the old-growth forests that make this state park irresistible to nature lovers.
Campsites shaded by hemlock and pine range along the river and near trails that lead to scenic bridges, rocky hillsides and the park’s famous ‘Forest Cathedral’. Reserve your Cook Forest State Park campsite (30 and 50 amp sites available) and make this your late summer getaway.
Bald Eagle State Park
One more gloriously green location for late summer camping is found in Northcentral PA. Bald Eagle State Park is home to Foster Joseph Sayers Reservoir, popular for boating, swimming and fishing. Plan to hike a woodland trail around Bald Eagle Mountain and keep an eye to the sky for the magnificent birds that give the park its name.
Dozens of electric and water campsites make camping here convenient, so book yours before you come. Be sure to pack the binoculars, hiking shoes and water recreation gear for maximum later summer fun. One more tip: the marina at Bald Eagle State Park offers rentals on kayaks, pontoons, jet skis and even bicycles, but reserve early if you’re coming for the weekend.
The Keystone State’s state parks and forests have something for every kind of late summer camper, whether you’re renting a Class C cabover RV or bringing the family fifth wheel. With thousands of miles of hiking and biking trails, picturesque lakes and rivers and plenty of modern campsites, they’re custom-made for your end-of-summer getaway.
Keep us in mind at El Monte RV Rentals in Pennsylvania or nearby Linden, New Jersey if lack of a motorhome is keeping you from camping. Pennsylvania is prime camping territory and there’s still time to find your favorite spot this summer.
