Happy Acres Resort is located deep in the Allegheny Mountains of north-central Pennsylvania; it’s an area popular with hunters, thanks to the unspoiled forests and abundant game animals. When you rent a camper near Happy Acres Resort, you’ll have access to full hookups for your RV rental along with fire rings and picnic tables. There’s also a small playground, a bathhouse, a swimming pool, and laundry facilities where you can wash out your dirty clothes after a long day of adventures. There’s also a restaurant at the campground if you get hungry and don’t feel like making something yourself.If you’re looking for a pet-friendly campground near the Allegheny Mountains, Happy Acres Resort might be the place for you. This campground is well-suited for campers wanting to get away from the city and crowds, as you’ll be almost an hour's drive away from the nearest interstate. However, getting to the RV park isn’t too difficult, with easy access from Highway 220 and Highway 44. Once you turn onto Highway 44, though, services are much more limited, so it’s best to fuel up the rental RV near Jersey Shore or before.

The Great Outdoors

North-central Pennsylvania is an outdoor lover’s dream - seemingly cut off from all the more densely populated southern corridor, this region is primarily forests and lakes. When you rent an RV near Happy Acres Resort, you’ll be just steps from Little Pine State Park and all the recreational opportunities it has to offer. The 2,000-acre park is nestled between some gorgeous peaks and surrounds a 60-acre pond. The pond is popular with anglers, and there’s a good chance you’ll catch some brook or rainbow trout after a few casts. There are also a few hiking trails to explore, and most of them are quite short and suited for all fitness levels.Another great option is Bald Eagle State Park, which is quite a bit more developed than Little Pine. It has swimming beaches, picnic tables, and a shop where you can rent kayaks and bicycles. Tons of hiking trails crisscross the park, so there’s never a shortage of places to explore. While geographically very near Interstate 80, a tall ridge runs along the lake’s south side and cuts off the views and sounds of traffic.If you’re spending the day in nearby Williamsport, there’s no better place to have a picnic lunch than Susquehanna State Park. Just outside the city, the green space is an excellent reprieve from the urban commotion. Many residents walk their dogs here, and you can even take a scenic ride on the historic Hiawatha Paddleboat. The cruise takes about two hours and offers some great wildlife spotting opportunities.

Exploring the City

The closest town to Happy Acres Resort is Waterville, but you won’t find too many amenities there or in the next town over, Jersey Shore. There are just a few diners and dessert shops in these two towns and little in the way of shopping or attractions.Should you decide that urban amenities are needed, the town of Williamsport is about half an hour's drive from the RV campground. It is just large enough to have what you need without being overwhelming. Williamsport has an excellent selection of restaurants befitting a city with a much larger population. Central Pennsylvania is also home to a wide variety of regional dishes worth trying, like teaberry ice cream, shoofly pie, and crustless chicken pot pie.Williamsport is also the birthplace of Little League Baseball, back in the 1930s, when just a few teams in the area formed to compete against each other. If you’re interested in learning more about this little slice of Americana, check out the Peter J. McGovern Museum in South Williamsport. It has dozens of interactive exhibits that are sure to entertain and educate both children or adult visitors.Couples taking a romantic evening stroll will enjoy Millionaires Row towards the east end of Fourth Street. The neighborhood contains over 200 Victorian homes and churches that were built in the mid-19th century and have been tastefully restored or preserved. The colorful hues and gabled roofs are particularly enchanting at sunset.Another good day trip when camping with an RV at Happy Acres is the Piper Aviation Museum in Lock Haven, about a half an hour’s drive from the campground. The museum’s hanger is filled with Piper Cub planes, and for aviation buffs, it’s a must-see. Even if you’ve never thought of flying your own plane, the history of the model is pretty fascinating.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
