PA Boondocking

I am hoping to do some boondocking close to home in the 2017 camping season, any suggestions on where to do that in PA? Live in Lancaster County and willing to travel 6hrs. Any recommendations on good or bad spots.

I think there's a campground in Benezette that has boondocking.

You live close to me, in less than that time you could be at Shenandoah National Park. Big Meadows campground was a great place to boondock.

Have you looked at the PA DCNR page for state parks? Even though many have electric, you could forego it. Elk County and out that way is remote; definitely check that area.

How about Promised Land State Park north of Stroudsburg. The Pickerel Point Campground is very clean. Some sites have full hook ups others have electric and water only.

That's an awesome state park with some fairly large sites but I do not know if Pickerel Point would fit in most peoples definition of "boondocking"?

Now if you want to get away from it all but still have electric and a few camping neighbors, lets call it semi boondocking, there is always Worlds End State Park or Sinnemahoning. Leave the cell phones and tablets at home, you won't need them nor be able to use them.

Another option is to search through the PA DCNR websites state forest sections for "dispersed camping" I know in Forbes State Forest they have a few sites scattered about and a lot more up north in some of the state forests.

Allegheny national forest has boondocking sites. Would need to call and ask if they have maps showing locations. I think you can stay 14 days then have to move but don't quote me on that.

Hearts Content

Hearts Content campground is pretty much boondocking. https://www.recreation.gov/camping/h...&parkId=140241

You need to make a reservation. There are no hookups, but there is a dump station and water. The sites are level and with space and shade. This is in ANF.
