Camping at Tuscarora State Forest

A camping permit is required for overnight camping on state forest land. Certain watersheds near exceptional value or high quality waters are posted closed to camping.

For information about campsite availability in Tuscarora State Forest and to request a permit, please contact the district office at 717-536-3191.

The PA State Forest Campsite Map shows locations and additional details for designated campsites. 

With the exception of designated natural areas, primitive backpack camping is allowed throughout the state forest. Primitive backpack campers do not need a permit if they stay no more than one night at any primitive campsite.
