Northeastern Pennsylvania RV Parks

Pine Cradle Lake Family Campground

The first of the RV parks in Pennsylvania that we are going to look at is Pine Cradle Lake Family Campground.

Pine Cradle Lake Family Campground is in the Endless Mountains, which already gives it a special air. There are 200 campsites, where your RV will fit right in. The rates are reasonable and the amenities are good.

The opportunity to spend time in and around water at this park is special, with the splash pad, heated pool, and lake to explore by boat. Fishing is another drawcard. You can also take part in organized activities, or just relax and enjoy the view.

Northwestern Pennsylvania RV Parks

Kinzua East KOA Campground

Getting right back to nature in the middle of the forest. Wake up to deer grazing outside your RV, or strolling past as you lie by the pool. Those are some of the things that make Kinzua East special.

The campground is right in the middle of the Allegheny National Forest, which means you can really escape from the hustle of real life. The RV sites are on back-in on gravel and have 50 Amp full hook-up and have plenty of shade.

Oil Creek Family Campground

The greatest thing about Oil Creek Family Campground is that you have the option to do it all, or to do nothing. Literally. There are plenty of pull-through sites with full hook-up, at 20, 30, or 50 amps.

Then, there are some secluded sites with no hook-up, which is a whole new experience. Overall, though, Oil Creek has a wonderful community vibe and the activities will make sure you all become part of the big family quickly.

West Haven RV Park and Campground

West Haven RV Park is close to water, nature, and the city, which makes it the perfect spot to get away with the option of getting around.

Fishing is one of the top attractions you will be able to indulge in, with great spots close by, like Lake Erie, Walnut Creek, and Presque Isle. If you don’t want to travel to the fish, then cast a line into the pond on site.

Parker Dam State Park

In Parker Dam State Park, the Moshannon State Forest that calls to you. The park covers 968 acres, so there are literally endless opportunities to get out and about in nature, on foot in summer, and on skis in winter.

This is the pot o’ gold for geocachers, which just may be something you could get into. Full hook-up is available, with back-in and pull-through sites, so just about everything you need is provided.

Eastern Pennsylvania RV Parks

Blue Rocks Family Campground

The most important thing about Blue Rocks in Eastern Pennsylvania is that it’s all about family. They change it up all the time, with different events to mark the different times of the year.

One of the best months is August, with a Family Fun weekend. The RV sites have hook-up for water, electricity, and sewage so it’s just like home, but with the beauty of the natural forestland surrounds.

Appalachian RV Campground

This is the place for more than a vacation, it is also the place for an occasion. The hall is for rent and can accommodate weddings, parties, and other events.

For RVs, there is a wonderful range, from 50 amp pull-through sites to 45 amp back-in sites on the banks of the pond to 25 amp back-in sites in the woods. Imagine stepping out of your RV in the morning and being surrounded by trees. Bliss!

Pinch Pond Family Campground

Pinch Pond is a truly family campground, being family-owned and operated and catering for all kinds of visitors, which means every size and type of RV, with sites both in the shade or the sun.

The RV sites offer extra with the full hook-up, by adding cable, so you really will be home-from-home. Just in case you left something behind, the store offers just about anything you may need.

The activities at Pinch Pond Campground can both teach and entertain you. Then there are the themed events, such as the Halloween Haunted House, to keep bringing you back.

Otter Lake Camp Resort

Otter Lake is in the heart of the Pocono Mountains, which can only mean beauty and peace all around you. The central feature of the Resort is the lake, where you can go swimming, boating, and fishing.

Otter lake caters to all weathers. When it’s a little cooler, then you can head for the heated pool, or cuddle around a cozy fire. Night doesn’t stop the fun, with floodlights giving light for more fun. With both partial and full hook-up available, you will find a home from home at Otter Lake.

Hidden Acres Campground

On the website, the best feature of Hidden Acres Campground is ‘doing nothing at all’. Doesn’t that sound like just the vacation you need to unwind and re-juice?

If, however, you want at least to do something, you can choose from many, many activities. Take a turn on the world’s largest original steel slide, or walk, bike and run for some fun. The sites have hook-ups either with or without sewage.

Central Pennsylvania RV Parks

Penn Avon Campground

The thing that strikes you about Penn Avon Campground is that there seems to be so much fun to be had. Whether it’s in, on, or around the creek, or spinning a good yarn around the fire, Penn Avon is the place that will make this happen.

The sites are smooth and easily accessible. The bathrooms are clean and attractive. Bring your RV for a full hook-up, including WiFi, and get on with having fun.

Waterside Campground and RV Park

The key feature at Waterside has to be the water. The campground and RV park is on the Juniata River and Pennsylvania Canal, so you really don’t have to go far to get your toes wet.

There is a heated pool, as well as river access. You can also take a canal ride. If you don’t take your own RV, but love that style of vacation, there are RVs to rent.

Twin Grove RV Resort and Cottages

Taking a vacation in your RV is about taking what you know with you and enjoying doing it yourself. Sometimes, though, it is great to be cared for by others. This is where the staff at Twin Grove come in.

Their aim is to look after you in every aspect. It’s like a vacation within a vacation, as you enjoy every moment hiking, sitting, and drinking in the scenery. Of course, there is great food available to keep you going.

Southeastern Pennsylvania RV Parks

Tucquan Park Family Campground

The whole focus at Tucquan is getting together as a family next to nature. The chance to hike the Tucquan Glen Nature Reserve is a great drawcard, so is the fishing, swimming, and other activities.

Just nearby, you can visit attractions like Buck Motor Sports Park and Lake Aldred. It doesn’t matter how big or small your RV is, everything is catered for at Tucquan Park.

Bear Run Campground

Bear Run campground can accommodate any size and type of RV, which makes it versatile and attractive to anyone. For larger RVs, there are drive-through sites, with full hook up.

Smaller RVs have back-in sites. When you are at Bear Run, you will be hosted by friendly staff, who will guide you through many different activities. What really appeals to me is that there are on-site activities and opportunities to visit surrounding attractions.

Spring Gulch RV Campground

Don’t think about simply taking a vacation at Spring Gulch, think about experiencing a whole new lifestyle. Right in the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch Country, you’ll find this park with full amenities and everything you need right at hand.

You can choose to stay put or take a cycle through the picturesque and fascinating Amish countryside. Back at Spring Gulch, there are endless opportunities to swim, fish, or laze in the sun.

Southern Pennsylvania RV Parks

Buttonwood Campground

Fresh air abounds when you stay at Buttonwoods, which is in the Juniata River Valley. The slogan for the campground is ‘camping, kayaking and canoeing’, which just about sums it up. What could be added, though, is that Buttonwood is the site of endless fun.

Activities at the campground include swimming in the pool, taking it easy on the river in a rubber tube, driving pedal karts, and playing laser tag. From the moment you pull up in your RV, you’ll have fun and get all the support you may need to have a fun-filled vacation.

Drummer Boy Camping Resort

At Drummer Boy Camping Resort, you will receive excellent service and the chance to choose one of the many sites in the 95 acres of woodland. Pets are allowed, which is a great option.

For everyone in the family, there are plenty of activities to choose from, including: sports, arts & crafts, swimming, minigolf, playground, and bing. The list goes on and you will never be bored at Drummer Boy.

Round Top Campground

There is no doubt that what is very attractive about Round Top Campground is that it is literally in the middle of American history, being so close to the site of many significant events in the Civil War.

Of course, the Olympic size swimming pool, mini-golf and many other activities are also great, as is the outdoor movie theatre. RVs have full 30 or 50 amp hook-ups.

Ben Franklin RV Park

Last but not least of our favorite RV parks in Pennsylvania is Ben Franklin RV Park.

Ben Franklin RV Park is near Gettysburg in York. One of the attractive things about this park is that the prices are mostly reasonable. Then, of course, there are the warm, spacious bathrooms and the opportunity to relax in more comfort next to the waterfall. You can also keep in touch with everyone via the free WiFi.


Taking an RV vacation in Pennsylvania gives you so many great opportunities to have fun with family, get back to nature, and to immerse yourself in history. You may just want to make more than one stop on the way.
