Pack your sleeping bags and s’mores supplies!
Some of the best summer memories are made at camp, from toasting marshmallows to sleeping under the stars. Make the most of the last few weeks of summer with a family camping trip.
You don’t have to travel far to enjoy an outdoor getaway. Take a “staycation” right here in NEPA at one of our local campgrounds. Just take a short drive, and you’ll be lounging by the lake and roasting burgers on the grill in no time.
We’ve rounded up some great campsites from across the region. For the full wilderness experience, pitch your tent at a state park campground and take on the hiking trails. If you’re more of the “glamping” type, kick back in a cozy cabin at a camping resort. Whichever option you choose, you’re sure to have a blast exploring NEPA’s great outdoors.
