  • Sinnemahoning is an excellent spot for car campers to enjoy the Elk State Forest/PA Wilds region. It was a quiet sleep (a little gravelly for tents, but not bad) with dark skies for stargazing. The park staff was knowledgeable and super friendly. Tracy answered my sister’s 500 plant identification questions with cheerful patience. Will definitely be back. And we saw a bear!
  • This used to be a beautiful place but the Hemlocks are all dead and the Mile A Minute vine took over. What a shame. Our state representatives should be all voted out. Hopefully other state parks don't deteriorate like this one.
