Benezette area tent camping ?

Going camping up in that area in a couple weeks . Any of you guys have any good recomendations of a safe place to set up a tent camp for a few days ? I know the area fairly well , but was always staying at a friends camp up on Mason Hill . All I'll I really need is a safe drinking water source . I know there used to be a spring back Hicks Run , but that was 12 years ago . Thanks for any advice you may have .

There is a state forest camping area on Hicks Run.

Call Elk State Forest office for info.

You can also camp along Medix Run. The Moshannon State Forest office is more along the way you'll probably be coming in, you'll need a permit. There is also the Benezette Store Campground for $25 a night for tent camping I believe.

Thanks eyefromthesky, I saw Medix Run on a net search , but all that it said was the lodges & cabins . We made our reservations today , so we're all set to freeze our butts off ... Thank you though . I really appreciate all the replies .

Sinnemahoning sportsmen offers camping and theres a good chance to wake up to elk in front of you
