Prince Gallitzin is not that far away. Best State Park campground in all of PA IMO.

The horizon is your starting point.

Re: campgrounds by convention

There is a private campground in Woodland Pa, which is approximately 10-15 minutes away.

State Park wise, Parker Dam, and SB Elliot are within half an hour

And Black Moshannon is probably a little over half an hour away.

Re: campgrounds by convention

I think Parker Dam is a good choice as they have a beach

Elliot does not. Parker Dam would be my pick.
