Overall Rating:

This is a very old (think CCC and FDR) state park. There is no shower facilities nor flush toilets. Sites are various sizes. I stayed in the pets section and the sites seemed tiny. I had to park the trailer off to the side in order for it to fit and then couldn't use my awning. Site was also about 4 inches off level which used up all my blocks to level the trailer. Picnic table and fire ring ended up on the "wrong" side of the trailer so the table was rarely used. Site had electric and that was good and reliable. The park itself has a lot to offer. There's a lake and stream for fishing. The lake also has a beach for swimming. The hiking trails are great and plentiful. They range from easy level paths to a difficult, rugged, uphill trek to a fantastic overlook. The park rangers were very friendly and accommodating. Overall, not a bad place but don't expect any frills. Nearest town is about 20 minutes away and it has just about everything you may need. We camped at Colonel Denning State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Newville, PA has just about everything you might need. Go hiking while staying here. Trails are great. The hardest but the best is Flat Rock. Overview is spectacular but trail is tough, difficult, and rugged. Leave a good amount of time to complete, but it is sure worth it.

Hiking trails are very enjoyable. Turns are a little tight for big rigs. They had just finished doing some renovation near the lake. Fantastic people in the area! We camped at Colonel Denning State Park in a Tent.
