If you're looking for a pet-friendly campground you can use as a base to explore Pennsylvania's Tuscarora State Forest, the rustic campground in Fowlers Hollow State Park might just be paw-fect for your needs.
Located near Blain, the campground sits just at the edge of the forest. It's a small and clean camping area with 18 sites in total -- 12 of these have electric hookups and the remaining six are walk-in tent sites. All sites have their own picnic table and fire ring, and there's sufficient room between sites for everyone to enjoy their own space.
Flush toilets, a dump station, and a water spigot are all provided. However, this is a rustic campground and there are no showers available, so it may not be the ideal destination for all campers. And while there are no entry fees to worry about, camping costs vary depending on the site you select. There's also an extra $2 nightly fee when staying with your pet.
Camping season runs from late March until mid-December, and pets are welcome on all sites. You'll need to keep your dog on a leash of six feet or shorter and remember to clean up after them whenever required.
There are also a few attractions within the park itself. Fowler Hollow Run is stocked with brook trout in mid-May, providing an enjoyable challenge for anglers. Picnic tables and grills are also provided in a tranquil woodland setting.
However, it's the easy access to Tuscarora State Forest which is the main attraction. Fowlers Hollow sits at the meeting point of several multi-use trails, so it acts as a trailhead for a variety of routes leading into the forest. The Tuscarora Trail is nearby. This is the northern portion of a 220-mile trail which crosses several states and is open to backpack camping, and there are myriad other roads and trails for mountain bikers and horse riders to explore.
Fowlers Hollow State Park may not be all that big or well-known, but it's a pretty park with plenty to recommend it. If you're planning a visit to Tuscarora State Forest, this charming campground is worth a look.
