Best Tent Camping: Pennsylvania


2nd Edition

Your Car-Camping Guide to Scenic Beauty, the Sounds of Nature, and an Escape from Civilization

This updated guidebook spotlights 50 of the best campgrounds in private, state park, and state and national forests, organized into four distinct regions and based on location, topography, size, and overall appeal.

Camping in Pennsylvania is better than ever!

The Keystone State offers thousands of square miles of hills, forests, and rivers to pursue a variety of outdoor activities: hiking, bicycling, skiing, fishing, boating, and camping. In fact, Pennsylvania provides a spectacular backdrop for some of the most scenic campgrounds in the country. But how do you know which campgrounds offer the most privacy or the easiest access to Pennsylvania’s impressive backcountry? Which are best for first-time campers?

Matt Willen has traversed the entire state and compiled the most up-to-date research to steer you to the perfect spot! Here, he presents the 50 best places to pitch a tent and spend the night in private, state park, and state and national forest campgrounds, without the noise of loud portable stereos, large recreational vehicles, and crowds. Selections are organized into four distinct regions and are based on location, topography, size, and overall appeal, and each entry comes with ratings for beauty, privacy, spaciousness, safety and security, and cleanliness.

In addition to providing campers with essential information about each campground (including detailed maps, season, rates, facilities, and how to reserve a site), the guide identifies the best sites at the best campgrounds, offers information on exciting day trips, suggests hikes and activities accessible from the campgrounds, and describes the flora and fauna campers might encounter on a trip. Whether you seek a quiet campground near a fish-filled stream or a family campground with all the amenities, grab Best Tent Camping: Pennsylvania. This guide is a keeper.
