Sleepy Hollow Campground

22 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents5 acres · Grantsville, MD
This property and farm has been in our family for 3 generations. In 1964 my grandfather started the campground due to limited camping at New Germany. My father tells stories of it being filled with guests all summer long! Over the years there was few upgrades and now it's in need of a facelift. Landscaping, electric upgrades and bathhouse remodels were completed Spring 2021. We will continue to renovate in phases it's been a labor of love, but you can still see the beauty of this rural location and enjoy the peace and quiet. Hope you enjoy your stay. Lots of trees, shade and nature. It's located near New Germany State Park, 1.5 miles by car, less than a mile by foot. The state park has a lake and hiking trails. Garrett County has so much to offer, waterfalls, lakes, hiking, skiing, Amish gifts, history, fresh air, beautiful scenery. The campground was first started in 1964 by my grandparents, we are currently completing renovations in phases.

All Ferns Most of the Time

1 site · Tent20 acres · Rockwood, PA
This spot is best for a van camp location but plenty of space for tents and hammocks. You'll find a drive-up deck if you wish to park there. Firewood is available providing you use downfalls as kindling in the stone fire pit. A 8x20' deck and picnic table are 20 feet from the fire for stargazing. When the ferns are full grown they are 3 feet tall and everywhere. A 10 minute walk takes you through a dense pine forest with large rock formations and a nice creek with many gurgling fall areas. If there looks like a cave amongst the large rocks, then it probably is a bear den. There is a lot to do near by. Some note worthy locations : Cranberry Glade Lake (good for kayaking or fishing), Ohiopyle, 7 Springs, Fallingwater, Living Treasures, Caddie Shak, and Hidden Valley are all about 25 minutes away. This property also borders Laurel Ridge State Park. There is a Dollar General and a gas station about 15 minutes away for convenience needs.

Ferns in the Forest

3 sites · Lodging, RVs32 acres · Farmington, PA
Learn more about this land: This wooded area is 5 miles away from the Ohiopyle State Park whitewater launch area and GAP bike trail. We are less than 9 miles from Frank Lloyd Wright's Classic Fallingwater and about 8 miles from Kentuck Knob one of the last resident homes he designed (both are open for tours). Fort Necessity National Battlefield is 5 miles away. There are numerous native trout streams in the area. Youghiogheny Reservoir is 7 miles away for fishing, boat rentals, and water-sports. The Fern House is the primary camp cabin on the property in 2024. Although if someone would want to park a "self contained" camper or small RV on the property we would permit the unit to occupy the area in front of the driveway just pass the entrance gate. It is not within the ferns and is next to the road. There is an electrical outlet available at this small RV or van camper site. We are "nice pet" friendly. We have a mountain spring (when the spring is running) up the trail road (450 feet away). The ferns will normally be in full glory by the end of May to the beginning of October and are amazing, covering the forest floor. Deer, bear, wild turkey, fox, chipmunks, squirrels and many woodland birds abound the property especially owls. A picnic table, fire ring and firewood is available on the property. Free WiFi on the property as long as the plant life is not too thick! There is a mile hiking loop right on the property and many challenging trails in the area, including the starting point for the Laurel Highlands Hiking Trail.

The best camping near Linn Run State Park guide

Overview

About

At just 612 acres, Linn Run State Park is on the small side, but this little paradise is bordered by the immense Forbes State Forest, which offers 50,000 acres of recreation wilderness to lose yourself in. Linn Run is a great little trout stream and the picturesque Adams Falls is tucked away in the rhododendrons, just waiting for you to come along and rest on the rocky shores. Hiking is the where the action is in Linn Run State Park. The trails are easy, and you'll encompass moss-covered boulders just about everywhere in this enchanted forest. Although mountain bikes are off limits in the park, there are endless trail-riding opportunities in Forbes State Forest, which is essentially right next door. All this plus rustic cabin rentals make Linn Run State Park the ultimate getaway.

When to go

The ideal time to visit Linn Run State Park is during the spring and fall when the weather is mild and the foliage is vibrant. Summer offers warm days perfect for exploring, though it can be busy. Winters are quiet but can be harsh, so check weather conditions before planning your trip.

Know before you go

  • Check the park's website for any alerts or closures before your visit.
  • Wear appropriate footwear for hiking, as trails may be uneven or slippery.
  • Remember to pack out all trash and leave the park as pristine as you found it.
  • Cell service may be limited, so plan accordingly and inform someone of your itinerary.
  • Facilities such as restrooms and picnic areas are available, but it's wise to bring extra supplies.
