Tucked away in the Pennsylvania Wilds, surrounded by Elk State Forest and Susquehannock State Forest, Sinnemahoning State Park offers some of the most spectacular scenery anywhere in the state. Located near Wharton in north-central Pennsylvania, this 1,910-acre park is tranquil, secluded, and the perfect destination for any true outdoor enthusiast.
When you camp in Sinnemahoning State Park, you can take advantage of excellent fishing and boating, some great wildlife watching opportunities, and five miles of hiking trails. And with a 35-site campground nestled within the park's beautiful surrounds, there's no reason why you can't enjoy a relaxing stay in this spectacular wilderness retreat.
With more than 1,900 acres to explore, it can be difficult to know where to start your Sinnemahoning State Park camping adventure. But with the park home to both the 145-acre George B. Stevenson Reservoir and a stretch of First Fork Sinnemahoning Creek, you might want to start with some water sports.
Located near the park's southern end, the lake is a hugely popular spot with boating enthusiasts in the summer months. A boat launch and mooring area are available, including five mooring spaces that are reserved for campers, and electric motors only are allowed on the lake. As a result, it's a peaceful spot to spend an hour or so just paddling or rowing your way around.
If you're a keen angler, you'll no doubt want to bring your fishing rod and try your luck catching a wide variety of warmwater and coldwater species. In the lake, you can catch a variety of trout species, smallmouth and largemouth bass, sunfish, bluegill, perch, and several others. There's also an ADA-accessible fishing pier near the boat launch. If you prefer fly fishing, you'll probably want to head for First Fork Sinnemahoning Creek to see what's biting.
When you're keen for a break from water sports, you might want to set out on foot to trek the park's five-mile trail network. The Red Spruce Trail leads you through hardwood forest and past a unique wetland area, offering a challenging one-mile hike.
But the most popular route sees hikers tackle the Lowlands Trail, which traverses five miles of terrain along the first fork. There are interesting interpretive panels along the way, but the highlight is an ADA-accessible wildlife viewing platform where you might catch a glimpse of deer, elk, and a wide variety of bird species. Of course, if you don't have any luck spotting many creatures, you might want to head to the park's Wildlife Center to check out some of the interactive exhibits.
If you'd like to go RV camping at Sinnemahoning State Park, search for a rental RV in Cameron County and then reserve a site in the park's campground.
Located one mile south of the park office, the 35-site campground boasts a scenic location surrounded by tall trees. This ensures ample shade in the summer months, with the campground open from mid-April right through until the middle of December.
Most sites feature either a 30- or 50-amp electrical hookup, while there are also a couple of walk-in tent sites available. There are sites here capable of accommodating large rigs, and each site gets its own picnic table, fire ring, and lantern hook.
Flush toilets, hot showers, and an RV dump station are all provided, and pets are welcome on designated sites. You'll also need to keep your dog on a leash and clean up after them at all times.
Finally, if you're traveling with someone else who won't be camping in an RV, Sinnemahoning State Park also features a four-bedroom cabin that can sleep up to 12 people.
