How do I make a reservation?
Make an online reservation or call 888-PA-PARKS (888-727-2757), Monday to Saturday, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. except on the Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day and New Year’s Day holidays.
Reservations can be made using MasterCard, VISA, American Express and Discover credit cards or personal, traveler’s and cashier’s checks. To receive a confirmed reservation, full payment must be received by the Bureau within ten days of making the reservation.
What if I arrive without a reservation?
Unreserved sites are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Campers without a reservation arriving after noon should check at the contact station or near the campground entrance for instructions. If an employee is not available, read posted instructions and check the "After Hours Posting Report." The appropriate fee must be paid to a park employee or deposited in a supplied honor system envelope before setting up on a campsite. Proceed to an available site and set up.
Transfers and changes to a reservation
Changes to a reservation (even ones made online) must be made by calling the Pennsylvania State Parks Reservation Center at 888-PA-PARKS, Monday through Saturday, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Eastern Time.
Cancellations can be handled via the Internet under "My Account" or by calling the call center. Cancellations made up to the close of business seven days prior to your scheduled arrival date will incur a $10 cancellation fee. If you cancel six days or less prior to the arrival date, you will forfeit the first night’s fee or $75, whichever is the lesser amount. There is a $10 fee assessed for all changes made to your reservation, except adding nights to the reservation. Changes to a reservation can be made at the call center, but not via the Internet. Any cancellation or change on the day of arrival must be made through the state park that you have the reservation with.
