Camp Skipping Rock on Pine Creek

· Cammal, Lycoming, Pennsylvania
5 acres hosted by Katharine C.
1 RV/tent site
Welcome to our little slice of heaven along Pine Creek at the southern end of the "PA Grand Canyon". It is an outdoor lover's dream. The camp lies inside of Tiadaghton State Forest on the west side of Pine Creek in the Pennsylvania Wilds. The property is 5 acres, embedded deep in public land. On the property there is this one very large campsite (approx 100 square ft) for rent and our small cabin. If we are there at the same time as our guests, we share the outhouse and shower, but our guests have their own private picnic table, fire pit and grill on the far side of the property. The area is beautiful for paddling, floating, fishing, hiking, biking, rock skipping, dipping your toes, swimming hole gems, searching for waterfalls, writing retreats. There are hundreds of miles of hiking, mountain bike and ATV trails, and some of the best fishing and stargazing on the East Coast. There is a 62 mile -rails-to-trails that runs along the other side of Pine Creek from Wellsboro to Jersey Shore, PA. Our camp is located on a secluded hill - a relaxing oasis removed from the rest of the world - read a book in a hammock, build campfires, grill yummy food, let the kids run around like crazy, play a lot of cards. It a 2 minute walk from the property to public access to Pine Creek. It is a 45 minute drive to paddle the Western Branch of the Susquehanna near Lock Haven, PA.Pitch a tent or two, pull up your RV deep into the deep calm of a ferns, Red Pines and Sycamores. The sound of a rushing creek in the background will lull you into deep calm. Hang a hammock, cook on a campfire and get ready to escape the world. You will be staying on far side of a 1 acre mowed yard, surrounded by woods on three sides, opening to the grassy area. The grassy area is great for kid play and is nestled in wooded mountains. You are a 2 minutes walk to Pine Creek with full public access. Trout Run flows into Pine Creek here so it is a great place to fish! We welcome everyone - all races, genders, sexualities, abilities, languages. It is a sanctuary for all to enjoy. Note: There is also a cabin on the property that we stay at. If we are there, we'll come say hi! But, we assume you are there for quiet and will give you plenty of space. If we do overlap, we will share the outhouse and outdoor shower. You have your own firepit and picnic table. Feel free to message with questions.

Seems as if would be a peaceful place. However there was lots of gun fire and very loud explosions happening which was very close.

We may have picked the wrong weekend to go out to the campsite but the amount of high powered rifle shots and extremely large explosions became very annoying. My poor doggie spent most of her time hiding. It is a very nice spot I won't deny that and the zip line was super fun! It may have just been the wrong weekend to go. The wildlife nosies at night are wonderful and so are the views.

Camp Skipping Rock at Pine Creek
I loved camping at Katharine's place. There's a little bit of everything to do around: hiking, biking, tubing, stargazing. The place is pretty remote so make sure you need everything you need before heading up. Maps are a must, the GPS can sometimes act wonky. The shower and latrine make a world of a difference when camping. Be aware, the drive-in was through a gravel road and Katherine's place is up a rocky incline. The place was quiet and very peaceful, would stay there again!

Very remote spot down a dirt road close to the river with great amenities, excluding the firewood which they don't let you use- this was tough because the only way to not be swarmed by bugs was to have the fire going. 4 wheel drive recommended
