Camp Blackbird is a secluded 28-acre property located along the border of Beltzville State Park in Lehighton, PA. This tent site is surrounded by trees with a partial view of the 949-acre lake. Walk a short ways to swim or sit along the lake. Miles of hiking trails for you to explore from your site. There is a spot for your tent, campfire ring, picnic table and water provided. Unlimited firewood is included and port-a-potty nearby. You are not on top of other campsites and the state park does not allow overnight camping. So it's a very quiet camp site at night. You might hear people on the lake from your site during the day but overall, its a quiet spot.
In addition to the beautiful immediate surroundings, we are centrally located near many exciting destinations. Year round activities at Blue Mountain Resort, adventure on The Appalachian Trail, fine dining and white water rafting in Jim Thorpe, and the beauty of Glen Onoko Falls are all within a 25 minute drive of the camp.
The property is not suitable for parties or events. The area is a QUIET ZONE. Ideal for people looking to unplug from it all and become one with nature. It is teaming with wildlife and is ideal for birding. The hosts mission is to disturb wildlife and its habitats as little as possible.
The campsite is a short (1 minute or less) walk from the driveway. You can park anywhere on the driveway, please pull your vehicle to the side enough that another vehicle can pass if needed.
We, the hosts, live on the property about 900 ft from the campsite. We try to have minimal interactions with the guests to ensure privacy and personal space but we're always reachable.
VERY IMPORTANT - NO PARTIES or unregistered guests on the property. There are other campgrounds in the area that are great for people who want to party.
We welcome pets.

The vibe at Tent Camping In The Woods Near Lake
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
This spot was fantastic! Everything we could have hoped for right there on the lake!
It was a 3 minute walk to the water, we had firewood provided, water provided, and were not disturbed at any point!
Will defintely return!
The hosts, Sarah and Stein, were very responsive, helpful and flexible. The campsite is in a lovely wooded spot and is well laid out and set up with water, a picnic table, fire pit and wood, and a toilet. Really kind of the best of both worlds - isolated like a primitive campsite but with all the convenience of a campground. The site is also located on a lovely quiet branch of the lake and a nice little hiking path along its shore. We had a nice swing off a nearby rope swing and swam at a nice swimming area minutes away on foot. We had a great time
We stayed at this great spot with our kids and had a fantastic time. All as advertised, well kept, very private, and nearby beautiful trails and lake access. We did not see the hosts while we were camping, but they were attentive and thought of everything we needed. Well maintained fire pit, level picnic table, plenty of water, clean port o potty, and appreciated that they left kindling, extra paper and lighter for starting fire. Would definitely return sometime.
