Located just outside of Parker, PA and 25 minutes from I-80, our campsite is very accessible, yet still very remote. With 4 campsites on 75 acres, guests have ample privacy and space, with the freedom to roam this posted property that has no homes on it. Perched high above the Allegheny there are several spots to take in the wonderful views. There is also a waterfall with a 3’ deep pool below it. Great for splashing with kids or dogs, guests love exploring the creek bottom and making new discoveries. The more curious guests sometimes find the ruins of the original homestead, chimney and spring house that sit upstream. The property is teeming with wildlife. Birds and tree frogs will be the soundtrack of your visit, and often deer will be seen nosing along the outskirts of your site in the mornings and evenings. Turkey, bald eagles and even bear are occasionally spotted, so be prepared to secure your food and trash at night. For those coming to disconnect, you have found the right place. But if cell service is needed, you will have enough to get texts out and depending what site you booked, calls and internet as well. For those who seek an electrical outlet AND and EV charger, we have a site for you! We also have a site with a large canvas tent already set up for your convenience. Within a 15 minute drive of your campsite you can find The North Country Trail, Rails to Trails Trailheads and Boat Launches on the Allegheny River, Groceries, dining and beer.

Site 1 - 75 Acres with Hiking and Waterfall.
The site is perfect for large families or a group of friends- lots of room to spread out & have multiple tents. The area is beautiful. We ended up having very rainy weather & everything did get slippery, but we made the most of it. Having firewood for $15 a boxful right there on the site was super convenient & the composting potty was really nice to have nearby - better than many of the alternatives. Chris was extremely responsive with messages & was very clear in all of the communications.

Really beautiful property! It was so quiet and relaxing but also not super far from town. I stayed here with a bunch of friends and we had a blast!

River Ridge campsite.
Amazing, majestic campsite!
This campsite was amazing! It’s extremely private, the view of the Fall leaves over the Allegheny was breath-taking, there are so many beautiful sights and sounds, and it’s such a great place to just relax and truly enjoy the wilds around you. The trail to the waterfall is also fantastic, and there’s a great little rock overhang down there where you can just sit and enjoy the water and the cool air. I would definitely recommend this site and will be back!
