This park & campground is absolutely stunning and so well maintained! There is a small beach on one side of the lake with beautiful clear water and minnows swimming around your feet! So cool! Lot's of campsites and a playground plus places to change and...More
Luckily our spot made up for the welcome. We arrived about 3:15pm (check in was at 3pm). The office was closed, and a sign at the gatehouse stated the camp host would have check in information. So we went to our site and took the...More
This park is an annual favorite for my family and our friends to go camping every summer. Unlike some other parks, the place is very quaint and cozy, with all of the sites being situated on/around/near the eponymous lake.
There is an ampitheater, a few...More
Made our second visit to Locust Lake State Park to camp on the weekend after Labor Day. Not many campers on Thursday evening, but more arrived Friday.
Staff is friendly and helpful. Park is kept clean and rangers drive the campground frequently.

The days were beautiful and fun. However, they did not enforce the "quiet hours" and someone played really loud music from 3 to 7am at the tent camping area. I couldn't believe they let people get away with that. That being said, the woods and...More
I walk this every day.. sometimes in the morning and after work all the time. I have taken numerous photos and enjoy all the scenery the park has to offer. The fact there there is a paved trail right along the entire lake with some...More
This Pennsylvania State Park is built around a reservoir. There are many campsites but only about half are available this early in the season. The sites are well-spaced, but not heavily screened from each other. Sites vary widely in their state of being level. We...More

As stated by another there's open sections around the one side of lake, grass area affords at least one bench. There's a small beach area (no animals allowed, enforced). A building nearby has restrooms, another a food stand (can't speak on hours of operation). There's a playground area for small children and more benches, dock for fishing (with license). You can bike or walk around a small paved lane which encircles the lake for 1.1 miles. Hiking paths go in several directions varying in terrain and difficulty. Occasionally there's nature programs put on by "Porcupine Pat" and others. I think they're associated with DCNR or maybe a Schuylkill county council of some sort, I really don't remember. It's a few times a year, usually advertised and you have to sign up. They're free of charge and rain or shine unless otherwise stated. I would call the park office to see what else is offered or go to DCNR website.
