Free Campsite in Pennsylvania

Posted by: The Photo Investigator 4 years, 2 months ago

This secluded, ample campsite with a great view is one of my favorites.  In Tuscarora State Forest, a 2.5 hour drive West of Philadelphia, this campsite requires no camping permit if you stay one night, and the permit is free for a longer stay.  The dirt roads can be traveled with a 2 wheel drive car, and offer a lot of opportunities to explore.

To reach this area, take Amberson Road into the Tuscarora State Forest, and use the GPS location of the photo to zero in on the site.  The site has a fire pit, picnic table, parking spot, and flat spot for a large tent.
