Allegheny NF Re-Opens Boat Access Campgrounds

Allegheny National Forest Visitors BureauBRADFORD, PA – June 28, 2019 – Allegheny National Forest has completed the routine maintenance and hazard abatement on three of the five previously temporarily closed boat accessible campgrounds on the Allegheny Reservoir.

These temporary closures were necessary for the public’s safety. The Forest Service has been working diligently to update maintenance and address hazards within these campgrounds in order to re-open them as quickly and safely as possible.

The three campgrounds that are now opened, effective Friday, June 28, 2019, are:

  • Hooks Brook
  • Morrison
  • Pine Grove

The campgrounds that remain temporarily closed are (see attached):

  • Handsome Lake
  • Hopewell

We ask that the public refrain from utilizing the Handsome Lake and Hopewell campgrounds until such work is complete.

The Forest Service is committed to ensuring that our campgrounds are safe and enjoyable for the public.

If you see hazards while camping and hiking please notify the ANF – Supervisors Office at (814) 723-5150.
