There are several hiking trails in the state forest, including access to a portion of the Appalachian Trail. There are also several roads and paths that are open for mountain biking. Many trails are even open for equestrian use.The Juniata River runs through the state forest, and there is a boat launch on the western edge of the forest area near PA Route 103. There is fishing available in the river as well as the many streams that run through the forest. Trout are native to the area, and you will find several different varieties when you go fishing here. Hunting is also available in many parts of the state forest, with deer and turkey hunting being the most popular. In the winter, you can go cross-country skiing at Fowler Hollow, and there is an extensive network of snowmobile trails as well.In addition to the state forest, there are also two state parks nearby that are very easy to explore when you camp in an RV at Paradise Stream Family Campground.

Questions about RVs?


What type of RV should I choose?


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.


Do the RVs have bathrooms?


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.


How does check-in work?


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.
