Colton Point State Park On the west rim of the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon, the small campground at Colton Point State Park resonates with the rustic charm of the Civilian Conservation Corps era of the 1930s. The first-come, first-serve camping area offers petfriendly, non-electric campsites (tent-only and walk-to) and organized group tenting. Four campsites can accommodate a small camping unit. The campground has non-flush restrooms, picnic tables, fire rings, and potable water. The rugged overlooks near the campground offer great views of the 800-foot deep, glacially carved Pine Creek Gorge. The scenery at Colton Point and Leonard Harrison is beautiful in every season of the year and is especially stunning in late September through mid-October. Please note: Cell service may be limited or unavailable near and within the park RESERVATIONS: Rustic campsites for individuals at Colton Point State Park are first-come, first-serve.
