Susquehannock Camp Site

Susquehannock Campground is located near the north-central area of the lake near mile marker seven.  Classified as a primitive campground, Susquehannock is a great place to get away from it all and still be within short driving distance of civilization. 

 

 

Each site is different, but in general Susquehannock offers:

● Non-electric sites ● Lake views
● Pit toilets   ● Mostly shaded sites
● No showers ● Drinking water access
● Unimproved sites ● Hiking & biking trail access
● Waterfront sites

● Near Susquehannock amenities

 

 

Unimproved Sites. Sites do not have a defined living or tent pad.  A level area is provided, but sizes may vary.  Many sites do not accommodate a camping unit larger than a tent or small pop-up trailer.  Each site includes a picnic table and fire ring.

 

Waterfront Sites.  Waterfront sites (designated with the ““ in the map above) are located within 10 to 30 feet of the shoreline.

Drinking Water Access.  A water hydrant provides the only source of drinking water in the campground located near the entrance station.

Hiking & Biking Trails.  The Allegrippis Trail system can be accessed from a road crossing about 100 yards uphill from site 1.

Near Seven Points. Susquehannock campers have access to all Seven Points day-use areas including showers at the Seven Points Beach Shower House, a short 15 minute drive away.

A convenient pull-up window allows campers to register without ever leaving the driver's seat.

Reservation campers should be prepared to provide their registration number and name to the attendant.

Walk-in campers (non-reservation) may select their site from a map of available sites or MIGHT be provided a look pass granting them access into the campground (to reduce traffic, look passes are only available when the campground is less than fifty percent occupied). The attendant can provide guests with site specific information regarding size, shade, hook-ups, proximity to water and other amenities.

Visitors wishing to visit a site for the day will still need to check-in at the Entrance Station to receive an access pass into the campground.

Upon checking into a site, campers receive vehicle and site permits granting access into the campground, a copy of our campground rules and a trash bag. Normally check-in only takes 5 minutes, but at peak times (weekends and holidays) campers should be prepared for longer lines and limited space at the Entrance Station parking lot.
