What PA State Parks have you stayed in, and which are your favorites?

I have been to several, more so though Prince Gallitzin, Pymatunning, Blue Knob, and Clear Creek.

Of these four I would say Clear Creek is my favorite, and Pymatuning would follow in a really close 2nd.

Sinnamahoning State Park has a nice campground. We've been staying there for about the last 8 years when we go up fishing in the spring.

I was actually impressed with Blue Knob...

Not much of a campground there, but was is there is very nice and quiet.

It might only have about 30-40 sites, but it is very cool.

Nice place for us, if we just want to pack up and go, only 25 minutes down the road.

#1 Cooks Forest
#2 Ohiopyle

The others I really can't remember. I think Cook Forest has a special place in my heart that no other campground could take. I grew up camping in those woods. Many great memories, espeically at the kid's pond. Can't wait to take my future children someday.

1. Laurel Hill
2. Prince Gallitzen
3. Pymatuning
4. Parker Dam
5. Raccoon (mostly because of proximity to home)

Haven't been to Ryerson in a long time as they have drained the lake and no plans to repair the dam.

One of our favorite state PA parks is Gifford Pinchott. Big sites, well maintained and godd fishing in the lake.
Pioneer Campground in Laporte, PA is one our favorite private campgrounds. No sewer but they have pumpout service and the owners are great people. They aim to please in every way.

Also, my Uncle works at the plant right there at Ryerson, he tells me there may be a plan in place to repair the dam and refill the lake.

Just stayed at Worlds End and so far it's my favorite for camping. Have stayed at Prince Gallitzin and Parker Dam as well. Been to Ricketts Glen for a day trip but would love to camp there.
