campground near pa elk visitor center

Thinking of taking the family out to see the Elk. Can anyone recommend a campground in the area. Don't need anything fancy but the wife will need flush toilets and a shower.

You could camp at Black Moshannon state park, wouldnt be that far till you get into elk. Not sure if they still have showers running right now or not.

What I say might not be the popular trend but at least Im not afraid to speak my mind!

If you're having trouble hunting for deer,

There is a campground right in Benezette.

Parker Dam State Park is also a nice campground. Just off I-80 on 153.

This is where I would go. Very nice place with a neat wildlife center. There are elk in the area as well without the traffic jams of winslow

I'll second that campground. A few years back we camped there and had a great time. Lots to see in that area beside elk.

The Benzette store camp ground is convenient and close to the visitor center...stayed there this summer.
