Cooks Forest

Looking to go up for a long weekend in June. Looking at both Deer Meadow Campground and Kalyumet Campground.

Anyone ever stay at either of these? Looking for pros and cons for both.

Thanks!

Holy Cheese and Crackers!

Re: Cooks Forest

My preference is the state park campground. Running water, flush toilets, showers, electric, pet and no-pet sites. Plus you can go tot he DCNR website and make a reservation right now.

Re: Cooks Forest

As much as I love state parks, it isn't feasible for this trip. I don't want to tear down camp to empty the holding tanks after 4 days. Looking at these two campgrounds as they have full hookups.

Thanks for the info.!

Re: Cooks Forest

Stayed at Kalyumet last August. Very nice showers, playground, and pool for the family. The general store has any odds and ends that one may need and if you get a rainy day there is a arcade within walking distance. I was very pleased with it and you can reserve online as well.
