Promised Land is my favorite state park. There is so much to do and it is very close to major restaurants (if camp fire cooking isn't your thing). The hiking is great there are so many trails. We can't wait to go back.

It was out first time camping with a group, so we were not sure what to expect, but the place is grate, the bathrooms and showers are very clean and working, trails are marked and well kept. It was a good first camping experience.

We spent three days here to relax after a busy few days at the arts festivals in State College. And relax we did! I have no idea why this park is so under-utilized but it is. We amused ourselves by driving through all the campgrounds...More

I was there in the late fall, they have parking lots all around so I think you can park in a lot.
