The Pennsylvania Wilds is one of the most breathtaking outdoor recreation destinations anywhere in the USA. Camping at Sinnemahoning State Park allows you to experience the best this remarkable part of the world has to offer and to do it all with your dog by your side.
Located in Cameron and Potter Counties, this 1,910-acre park offers spectacular scenery and is home to abundant wildlife. A long and narrow stretch of land, Sinnemahoning State Park runs along First Fork Sinnemahoning Creek and is sandwiched between Elk State Forest and Susquehannock State Forest.
For many visitors to the park, the highlight is catching a glimpse of the many species of wildlife that call the park home. From soaring bald eagles to black bears, coyotes, bobcats, and a growing elk herd, there are plenty of opportunities for nature lovers to get up close and personal with some amazing creatures.
At the park's southern end, the 145-acre reservoir created by the George B. Stevenson dam is a favorite with visitors. It offers excellent boating and fishing opportunities with trout, bass, sunfish, bluegill, and many other varieties on offer.
Hikers can explore the park's five miles of trails, while ice skating, cross-country skiing, and snowmobiling are all popular during the winter months. There are also two large picnic areas available for when you feel like doing a little al fresco dining.
The campground in Sinnemahoning State Park features 35 campsites and a modern cabin. Several of the campsites welcome dogs, so make sure you choose a pet-friendly site when reserving your spot.
Last but not least, don't forget to follow the rules when camping with your pet. Dogs will need to be leashed, caged, or confined to a vehicle at all times, and it's your responsibility to clean up after your pet. If you show courtesy to other campers, you can help ensure that beautiful campgrounds like this one continue to welcome dogs well into the future.
