Camping at Moshannon State Forest

There are numerous designated primitive campsites without developed facilities within the State Forest that can be reserved on a first come, first serve basis. Campers are required to obtain a camping permit at no charge.

For information about campsite availability in Moshannon State Forest and to request a permit, please contact the district office at 814-765-0821. The PA State Forest Campsite Map shows locations and additional details for designated campsites. 

Primitive backpack camping is also allowed throughout the entire forest. These primitive backpack campers do not need a permit if they stay no more than one night at any campsite.

Primitive backpack campers should register at any trailhead near a State Park office.
