Best source of hunting camp listings?

I’ve been on the search of a camp in a specific area for awhile. How did you find your camp? I don’t have time to drive around and look for classifieds right now.

We found ours by looking at the small town realtors in the area, But that involved driving around, so I guess that wont work for you.

Hunting: 10% skill and 90% location.

Call local realtors and tell them what you want and to call you if something comes on the market. Then, sit back and wait for the phone to ring.

First thing I do is make up a list of all the things you want from a camp.

How close is the hunting area?
If you fish how close to good Trout fishing?
Seclusion ?
Running Water?
Electric ?
Can I get there in dead of winter?

Just some examples. Good Luck.

AS noted, if you've picked a locality you're interested in, Google/Bing RE agencies in that area, see what's on the market?

Most RE outfits, even in rural areas, now have web sites listing properties they're trying to sell. I've followed some properties listed from a small RE agency near my 3A camp, for some time, just to see how the local market is doing.

Some folks' learnin' curves just look like circles...3A Camp/also hunt 4B

With todays technology you can do a lot of shopping right at your computer.
Once you see something that will fit your wish list like Joe said you can contact the realtor for more pertinent information....
If unfamiliar with the local game lands, the regional PGC office can help with what game is prominent on those game lands....
Finally, HPA seems to have guys on here in every part of PA and if you choose to settle on a particular area, I am sure they will give you their 2 cents about the area....
Good luck...

You could also look at major sites like Zillow and search the maps for that area. I also use google or bing and search “land for sale near” whatever town I’m looking for and then check the reality sites that show up.
