At the meeting point of two of Pennsylvania's most sought-after angling rivers, Poe Paddy State Park Campground is a fisherman’s (or woman’s) paradise, danced by the area’s endemic, well-populated trout populations. But Poe Paddy State Park will do more than satiate your inner reel-savvy-self―it’ll also give your favorite hiking boots a run for their money on the area’s scenic Mid State Trail.

My wife & I love this campground. It's a great location right along Penn's Creek (awesome fly fishing) and it's very well wooded. Primitive (no electricity, etc), so not many large RVs. The pit toilets are always well maintained. Great place!

We camp here twice a year and love it. Great access to water , fishing and tubing. Just far enough from civilization, but you can have lunch at Penn State in 45 minutes. The camp spots are well maintained there's plenty of room between neighbors. Facilities are as clean as can be.

I spent 3 nights here in August with my son. It's a lovely, remote, quiet campground. You're a 25 min drive from the nearest gas station or grocery store, mostly on gravel roads through dense forest. Site 135 is probably the most lovely/private and backs to the creek, but no pets allowed. If you bring an inner tube you can tube down the creek if the water is high enough. Water is available and vault toilets (solar lights). Some of the sites are a bit out in the open for my tastes, but the pet loop in particular they are more tree-lined and private. Gravel tent pads, so bring sleeping pads. No cell service. 15 min drive from Poe Valley State Park which is has plumbing, electricity, a camp store, park rangers, and a swimming beach.
