14 Campsites Perfect for Your Summer in Pennsylvania

Swimming, forests, waterfalls, and historic villages...explore the beauty of Pennsylvania with Tentrr.

By: The Outbound Collective + Save to a List

When it comes to Pennsylvania, there's no such thing as "ordinary." An intriguing mix of historic Americana, modern cities, forested mountains, hundreds of waterfalls, and more swimming holes that you can count, you should expect the unexpected in this Mid-Atlantic state. 

Where else can you find a hike like the Falls Trail at Ricketts Glen, that passes by 21 (that's right, 21!) waterfalls? And how often do you get to wander through the meadows of Civil War encampment like Valley Forge? 

While you're discovering the wild beauty of Pennsylvania, why not stay somewhere out of the ordinary, too? Tentrr connects campers with fully furnished camp spots on beautiful, private properties through Pennsylvania. Each campsite has everything you need—including a canvas tent, a comfortable bed and furniture, a grill—so you can just sit back and enjoy.

"The Lenape tribe named the Manatawny, meaning "where we go to drink." Deer and other wildlife may pay you a visit as they come to drink, too. Relax here among the towering poplar trees, listening to the musical sounds of the trout stream and songbirds." Learn More.

"Set in a private meadow surrounded by woods in the heart of 70 acres, you will have plenty of woods and fields to explore. You will find maple sap lines used to make maple syrup running to many trees in a lower portion of the property." Learn More.

"Set back behind today's modern agricultural life and be transported to the past in this campsite among a field that was once a Native American Algonquian village. Here in this circular field, you'll discover this untold story surrounded by a living forest filled with wildlife such as white-tailed deer, Appalachian cottontail, red fox, fishers, and raccoons." Learn More.

"Camp with a great view from the edge of the forest, secluded from the outside world. During the day, take time to swim in the pond located on the property and gaze at the open skies at nightfall." Learn More.

"Our site is in quiet and peaceful seclusion for those who want to bathe in the harmony of nature, but also offers plenty of activities within minutes by car. Schedule a leisurely guided nature walk with the Campkeepers as an extra or explore many trails on your own. We have 100-plus private acres." Learn More.

"We have a hidden, secluded campsite below our horse pastures for you to enjoy. Your campsite is right next to a small creek with trails into the woods." Learn More.

"John Muir, aka The Father of the National Parks said, "Of All The Paths You Take In Life, Make Sure A Few Of Them Are Dirt." We can help you with that! A short walk down a woods road leads you to your camp, nestled in a mature forest, and along a babbling brook." Learn More.

"Relax and enjoy spectacular views of Deiberts Valley located in Schuylkill County, PA. This campsite is situated on a 250-acre working dairy farm with lots of space to admire wildlife and go for a quick hike or swim in the nearby Red Creek."Learn More.

"Drive into your camp immediately you will hear the sounds of a babbling creek, by giant rhododendrons under magnificent hemlocks and oaks—a truly natural and relaxing experience. Enjoy your own private swimming hole, a short hike to our private waterfall or lay in a hammock on a small island in the water." Learn More.

"Our cute little campsite is tucked in the woods of Susquehanna County, PA and is minutes from Elk Mountain. The site is perfectly placed so you can hear the soothing sounds of the waterfalls and enjoy the peaceful sounds of nature." Learn More.

"This premium site provides a unique opportunity to enjoy the wonders of nature while relaxing by the river on our 40 acre farm. Swim, kayak, canoe, inner tube, fish or just enjoy communing with nature. We have regular sightings of foxes, owls, wild turkeys and bald eagles." Learn More.

"This site is perched on a hill, overlooking the Christmas tree fields of the farm and the rolling valleys of the Blue Mountains.
