Campground near Scranton/Wilkes Barre

I'll be in the Scranton PA area this Friday evening on my way to the FROG Rally. Can someone recommend a decent campground that's easy on/off I-84 or I-81 for one night? I would also consider a Cracker Barrel or Walmart but very concerned about safety. Anyone have any suggestions?

I stayed at the one just south of I-80 white haven exit once.

Sandy Valley Campground.

I found it noisy and the campers were pretty much out of control.

I stayed at a different place in White Haven last fall, I can't remember the name of it but hopefully I don't wind up there again. I really like Hickory Run state park- its not too far from 81. I am also a fan of Promised Land state park. Depending on where you're coming from that might work for you too.

Thanks Lou. Thanks Dave. I'll avoid Sandy Valley and check out those State Parks.

Thanks BOBFIDY. Looking forward to it!

Update: I might be able to hit the road a little earlier on Friday than I expected so there's a good possibility that I can get to I-80 (west of I-81; Moyers Grove, Bloomsburg, Milton, etc) before calling it a day. Does anyone have any suggestions for an easy in/out campgound along this stretch of I-80?

There is Bellefonte / State College KOA | Camping in Pennsylvania | KOA Campgrounds Bellefonte KOA north east of State College I stayed at when we went to Erie and I liked it.
VERY easy on/off I -80; nice campground; full amenities.

Thanks Lou. In case i don't get that far before sundown, are you familiar with Indian Head Campground in Bloomsburg? It appears to be close to I-80. I'm finding mixed reviews, but I don't need anything fancy. All I really need is a safe place to spend the night.

Sandy Valley was "safe" Per Se, but the 4th of July "wildlife" drove our 6 month old Bella crazy. Literally.

She came home from that trip gun shy and with chronic fear syndrome due to the fireworks that were being tossed under the campers all night.

No experience with the Bloomsburg campground.

We just spent this past weekend at Pioneer Campground just north (~25 miles) of Bloomsburg in the Endless Mountain area in Sullivan County. Maybe a little out of the way for an overnight, but we loved it there for the weekend. Very nice owners with great lots - beautiful scenery. Good luck and Safe travels.
