The Great Outdoors

RV camping at Potter County Family Campground makes it very easy to enjoy Lyman Run State Park, which is just to the south of the campground and offers several fun outdoor activities. The park is also part of the larger Susquehannock State Forest. Within the park is an access point for the Susquehannock ATV trail, offering snowmobiling opportunities in the winter. This trail system consists of three loops and is a great way to explore the area. Cherry Springs State Park is also nearby and is part of the Susquehannock trail system. Cherry Springs is known for its clear skies, which make it a very popular destination for stargazing. It is also known for its beautiful namesake cherry trees, which are particularly beautiful in the spring and summer.The park also has its own 45-acre human-made lake, which is the perfect place for water sports. There is a boat launch and mooring area within the park, although you will need a boat registration to use it. The lake is stocked with many different varieties of trout throughout the year. Ice fishing is also permitted in the winter when the ice is thick enough. There’s also a small stream that runs off of the lake, which is approved for ice fishing. In the summer, there is a sand beach with a modern bathhouse that is appropriate for swimming.Hiking is also a very popular activity when you go motorhome camping in this area. There are six miles of trails within Lyman Run State Park, and they connect with a much larger trail network in the state forest. There are some trails for beginners as well as an extensive network of more challenging trails for experienced hikers and backpackers. There are also several portions of the state park that are open for hunting, with turkey, deer, and bear as common game species. Of course, make sure you have proper hunting licenses and that you follow all hunting regulations. In the winter, ice skating and sledding are also available. There is also skiing available in nearby Denton Hill State Park, which has both downhill and cross-country trails.

Exploring The Area

There is plenty to do when you book an RV rental in Potter County. This area is very secluded and peaceful, but there are many charming small towns nearby. The closest town is Coudersport. The town has a gas station and grocery store where you can fuel up and purchase snacks before your camping trip. Downtown Coudersport also has plenty of charming independent restaurants if you would like to enjoy a nice meal out. The downtown district also has a few small shops and a theater. The Pennsylvania Lumber Museum is also located close to the campground. This museum showcases the rich history of the lumber industry in this part of Pennsylvania. The Coudersport Ice Mine is also a very popular attraction. In a natural anomaly, this cavern forms ice in the summer and melts in the winter.Despite this campground’s secluded location, there are a few day trips you can take to larger towns while camping in the area. The town of Erie is less than three hours' drive away and is a great place to see the Great Lakes. This town has a rich maritime history with museums and lighthouses. Another easy day trip is the Buffalo-Niagara Falls area, where you can see one of the world’s most stunning waterfalls.

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.
