Nice campground. We were there on a Monday night and the place was nearly empty. We we told it was packed during the weekend due to a Penn State game. We were preregistered and the instructions posted were to simply find your spot. We never saw anyone working there and we were fine with that. All was clean and well kept. We camped at Greenwood Furnace State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed during a conference at State College. Nice quiet park with a small lake for fishing and swimming. Ranger programs on weekends. 30A electric only at the sites. Water stations spaced throughout the campground to fill your fresh water tank. Dump station at the entrance. We were in site 47 which had a nice low stone retaining wall along the back. This gave a nice background for the fire in the evening (and a place for our cat to explore). Our trailer is 25' long and we had room to park the truck. (We had previously stayed in site 48 which has a slight uphill grade at the entrance but levels out where the trailer sits.) We like the sites on the outside of the outer loop because of the privacy they give you. We camped at Greenwood Furnace State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Nice small lake for fishing great hiking/running trails. 48 has a slight grade, but nothing hit bottom backing in, stay to the right for an evener backup. We camped at Greenwood Furnace State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Stayed in site #48. It is an uphill grade backing into the site but is fairly level once you get in the site. The park has a nice lake with a beach area and concession stand. Fishing appeared to be good when I was there. We camped at Greenwood Furnace State Park in a Travel Trailer.

No grocery stores near campground. The campground is ~30 minutes from State College, PA, for restaurants, entertainment and Penn State sporting events. The PA Military Museum is in Boalsburg.

Beautiful park, shaded sites; electric hookups only. Drinking water available. Pricey nightly rates for only electric hookups. Our site was not very level but was large, as were most of the sites we saw. Restrooms were clean, showers private. Playground for children. Very nice swimming area with sand bottom across the road from camping area with a snack bar, which was open only on weekends. Many hiking trails. We camped at Greenwood Furnace State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Not much shopping nearby. Go Right out of the campground, up Hwy 305, over the mountain toward Belleville. There is an Amish/Mennonite farming community just before you get to Belleville and it is beautiful with lots of fresh produce available.

This is a really nice, remote park. Some of the sites are larger than others, and the campground map depicts site size very well. All are wooded. There are some nice hiking trails, and a little lake. The playground is not in the campground, and is across a busy road, which could be a problem if you have children. We camped at Greenwood Furnace State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We love this park! We already have next year booked. This is our second visit in as many years and have had no problems, other than finding the entrance to the campground the first visit. It should be marked better. The whole campground is wooded and nicely laid out on a hillside. The gravel sites are mostly flat, and this year, they had the campground loop road paved. It changes the whole feel of the park for the better. It's quieter, no dust, and the kids can ride scooters and bikes will ease. Sidewalk chalk has become popular, too. The dump station has been upgraded as well, though it could have been laid out with more room. Still, it's very serviceable as it is. he bathhouses were revamped several years ago and remain in very good condition. There are some good hiking trails to explore, as well as lots of great history waiting for campers to uncover, so don't miss the programs at the other park facilities on site which bring alive the history of the iron industry in early America. There is very little to complain about at this park, other than the missing full hookups that all PA State Parks share. We will be back many times! We camped at Greenwood Furnace State Park in a Travel Trailer.
