The campground is absolutely gorgeous!! Lots of gentle wildlife!! We oftentimes took three walks a day/night. There is a separate swimming area from the boat ramp. Fishing is allowed with proper license. We appreciated their rules of not allowing boats/trailers on the campsites. They have overflow parking down at the boat ramp and elsewhere throughout the park. The campground rules state that each outside guest that visits your site must pay $3 each. There is a small campstore for basics (ie. hamburger/hotdog buns, hotdogs, chips, soda, water, etc.) Quiet time is kindly adhered to. A roving Park Ranger makes his rounds regularly noting safety issues and adherance to the campground rules.
Make certain you bring extra leveling blocks; note that this site sits in the mountainous region of Pennsylvania. As with all campgrounds, we highly recommend filtering your water. The only drawback to Ives Run COE Campground is internet capability is seriously lacking because of its location in the mountains (AT&T and Verizon); spotty at best.
We WILL return! We would have given it 5 stars if internet capability existed.
