We spent 3 days at this fabulous state park. No problem at all getting into the park with our 40' 5er. Most sites are short, but there a number of "big rig" sites that are easy to back into. Just check the website for availability. Very spacious as well. Very clean and well maintained with the exception of the dumpsters that desperately needed to be emptied, but it did not detract from our get away. Miles of trails to walk and a beautiful beach. It's electric only but there is a dump station available. Mostly 30 amp sites but a few 50 amp. Highly recommend this park!! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

We've stayed at Cowans Gap many times and have reviewed it in the past. This was the first time we camped there this late in the season, though, and the experience had some significant differences from "in season" camping. Starting after Labor Day the number of available sites are reduced as some of the loops are closed. During our visit, the only sites open were the pet sites (1-30) and sites on the main road through the campground (31-74). The only restroom and shower house open was before entering the pet sites, right at the campground entrance and few spigots were working through the open area. That shower house is a considerable distance from sites outside of the pet area, which makes it difficult if you don't have your own facilities. Also surprising, and only discovered when we were leaving, was that the rinse hose at the dump station was turned off. If we had known that we wouldn't have dumped the remainder of our fresh water and would have been able to rinse the dump hose. We realize that, due to budget cuts, parks are continually looking for ways to reduce costs, but it would have been nice to have an additional shower house (or at least a restroom building) open over weekends and have water available at the dump station. Cowans Gap remains one of our favorite Pennsylvania state parks and the park and surrounding areas are beautiful. The towns and country roads throughout the area are well worth exploring. We'll be back in 2012 and beyond. We hope that we don't see more budget cutting in one of the very few areas that produce income for the parks! We camped here in a Tent Trailer.

Only a very limited number of pet sites available. No water hookups. Very quiet. Clean restrooms & showers. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
