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 must be made by calling the Pennsylvania State Parks Reservation Call Center at 888-PA-PARKS (888-727-2757), Monday through Saturday, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. There is a $10 fee assessed for all changes made to a reservation, except adding nights to the reservation.
Cancellations can be handled online under “My Account” or by calling the call center.
Cancellations made up to the close of business seven days prior to the scheduled arrival date will incur a $10 cancellation fee. Cancellations six days or less prior to the arrival date, will forfeit the first night’s fee or $75, whichever is the lesser amount. Any cancellation or change on the day of arrival must be made through the state park where the reservation occurs.
For reservations that receive the weekly discounted rate, any change that results in shortening the stay will cause the customer to lose the benefit of the weekly rate. A new daily rate will be calculated for the remaining dates, which will affect any amount refunded.
