Camping in the beautiful woods of Pennsylvania is an experience you’ll never forget, and state park campgrounds make ideal vacation destinations for the entire family.
The family campground (Ridge Camp), which is open year-round includes 226 tent and trailer sites. Modern washhouses with hot and cold running water and showers are available from late May through early October. A trailer dump station is also provided. On-site hookups are not available and winter access is not guaranteed.

Also, two areas in the park are established for organized group tenting. Organized adult and youth groups may reserve these rustic camping areas.
23 rustic cabins are available for families from the second Friday in April until the end of the antlerless deer season in late December.
There are two cabin areas at Cook Forest. The River Cabins are on a hillside overlooking the Clarion River. These are large cabins with four rooms and a fireplace. They will sleep either six or eight people. The Indian Cabins are smaller, one room structures, which will accomodate four people. These cabins are found along Tom’s Run (see below) located behind the park office.
All cabins are rented with a minimum of furniture, including beds, mattresses, a gas stove, refrigerator, tables and chairs. Occupants must provide their own bedding, cookware, and tableware.
