Allegheny NF Re-opens Hopewell Campground

Allegheny National Forest Visitors BureauBRADFORD, PA – July 2, 2019 – Allegheny National Forest has completed the routine maintenance and hazard abatement on the Hopewell Campground, a boat accessible campground on the Allegheny Reservoir.

The temporary closure was necessary for the public’s safety. The Forest Service has been working diligently to update maintenance and address hazards within the campground in order to re-open it as quickly and safely as possible.

The Hopewell Campground is now open, effective Tuesday, July 2, 2019.

The Forest Service is still working on the Handsome Lake campground and it remains closed. We ask that the public refrain from utilizing Handsome Lake 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 on the Allegheny National Forest please notify the ANF – Supervisors Office at (814) 723-5150.
