Looking for some suggestions for good camping spots. Tent camping and would like to not be around other people. Nearby float trips would be a huge plus. Not necessarily looking for fishing spots but that wouldn't hurt either. Thanks in advance!

There are some islands in the Juniata and Susky that allow primitive camping. Check the river trails - believe they can be found on the DCNR and PFBC websites.

Finding them isn't the issue, just looking for experiences about the different parks. Figured this was a good place to ask.

Float pine creek from coudersport to the river, plenty of places to camp until you get down towards the bottom. If you do it on a weekend you will run into other people but a beautiful trip none the less. It will take a few days as well

I floated the gorge in 1975 with some friends. We made the mistake of trying to do it in July. Needless to say we didn't get far fast. But one night in that valley, looking at the Milky Way is an incredible experience!

I camped at Little Pine last year with my girlfriend (who had never camped before) and we both had a very positive experience. I also had a very positive experience camping with my dog at poe valley (not paddy) and would say that poe valley has had the nicest restrooms i have ever seen in a state park. That isnt a really big deal, but still it is worth noting.

Central PA has a spoil of riches when it comes to quiet camping.

With a permit from a DNCR office you can camp in state forests.

If you are primitive camping for only one night, you don't even need a permit.

State Forest primitive camping guidelines brochure.

You do need a permit if you are car camping at many of the different places you can pull off a state forest road.
