This is one of THE BEST state park facilities in PA!! No matter what you are looking for, they have it. There are camping options for every style: tent, trailer, pop-up, 5th wheel, etc. Cabins to rent as well. Some pet friendly sites too!! Plus a lake, beach, swimming, fishing, hiking, on and on. It's like the "Seven Springs" of state parks!!
The park is absolutely beautiful, tucked away in Somerset and is a lovely gem. We had the opportunity to attend the Laurel Hills Bluegrass Festival and it was blast, even with the thunderstorm. The park rangers acted quickly when needed and kept everyone informed about what was happening and what to do. Looking forward to visiting again sometime soon!
