1 RV/tent site
Big rig-friendly
Spacious, level camping well-suited for travel trailers over 40 ft long.
A gorgeous property at the foot of a mountain with the Elk Run creek edging the back private area, provides hours of relaxation listen to the stream, fishing and wading in the creek. Huge maple trees where a maple sugar shack was once on the property provides a wooded area by the stream where you can set up a tent or sleep in hammocks and listen to the stream. We are renovating a barn into a large beautiful house will be available soon. We provide a picnic table, fire ring and fire wood. There could be two sites, one has electric and both have water. Bring a water filter, water is safe but has the sulfur smell. A charcoal filter is recommended. The circular driveway provides easy access. Toy hauler or horse trailers welcome. ATV can get in the DCNR connector trail right from the driveway. Hunters are welcome to hunt the many acres of public land in the area. Not permitted on our property. There is wildlife including bear, deer and Turkey we often see ducks, eagles, gross beaks, and cardinals just to name a few. This is the place to come to park you RV and retreat to the creek in back of property if you want time to relax and enjoy the beauty of nature.Park your RV or vehicle in the stoned area where the electric hookup and water is located. There are two sites but would only rent second one to people who are camping together. Please contact us for this option. Please do not block the circle driveway You may also set up a tent or hammocks in the wooded area and still use the water and electric at the site. Creek is in the edge of property. 1/4 mile walk it flows into the Pine Creek. There is a public beach area at the Pine Creek where you can tube, launch at kayak or canoe. People and dogs can also swim at the area. It is at the bridge you cross to get to property. Dirt road next to creek takes you a parking area. ATV trail is at end of driveway.

Great spot to set up and was wonderful to have access to a water spigot and table. Would recommend if needing a place to camp in the area!

Peaceful Mountain Stream
Leaf Peeping in Gaines
It was a rainy weekend, but we were still able to enjoy the property in between showers and clouds. Take time to walk to the creek and sit on the bench there. Water and electric were easy access and don't require lengthy hoses or cords. Due to the weather, we couldn't take advantage of the picnic table or campfire ring. The drive-in is somewhat of an decline but otherwise clear and accessible. We had extremely spotty cell coverage and no wifi all weekend. Recommend marking any sightseeing prior to arriving. Be sure to include the Bradley Wales Vista in your plans. Thanks again!

A truly wonderful experience camping at this site with the sites. Hosts greetings.. Camping area for trailer is well equipped and set in area fully lit, maintaining a sense of safety and security. Meanwhile, you have access to an entire camping area near a Stream that is private serene and truly a wonderful experience. The campsite is the strategically located near many of the hiking trails that make the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon, such a wonderful place to visit. I highly recommend this site.
