Camping

We have 14 rustic campsites; 8 are walk-in only, 5 can accommodate campers, and 6 can accommodate cars. They are $22/weekend night or $18/weeknight for PA residents and $25/weekend night or $20/weeknight for non-residents.  You may use the honor system to camp without making a reservation.  This is on a first come, first served basis.

We have 3 rustic cabins. Cabin 1 sleeps seven, and Cabins 2 and 3 sleep five each. They are $53/weekend night or $44/weeknight for PA residents and $57/weekend night or $49/weeknight for nonresidents.

The cabins have electricity but no heat or running water. Propane heaters are allowed; electric and kerosene heaters are not allowed. The cabins also have a porch, picnic table, and fire ring.

Cabins need to be reserved in advance, and you will be provided with an access code for your stay.  Scheduling for reservations is done Monday-Thursday 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Contact us to check availablity and request a reservation.

If you use a campsite without a reservation, according to the posted Honor System procedures, you MUST pay for your site BEFORE you set up your campsite. You cannot defer payment until you leave.

Rules and Regulations

Alcohol

No alcohol is allowed.

Dogs

Dogs are allowed in the campgrounds as long as they are always on a leash, cleaned up after, and quiet. Dogs running loose in the campgrounds and dogs that bark a lot are not tolerated in this park.

Parking

Parking is not allowed on the grass or directly at Campsites 1-7 and 14 or Cabins 1 and 3. Be prepared to carry your provisions for a short distance and to park in the public parking lot if available parking spots in the East Meadow camping area are filled. This is located behind the Wheaton House. Do not park in the grass along the lane.

Drinking Water

Please bring your own drinking water. Water is available outside at the Wheaton House; the faucet is located on the side facing the parking lot. Note that the water is "well water," with a sulfurous taste, and it is currently posted as nonpotable. There is a second spigot in front of the restrooms by the dairy barn.

Firewood

Do not bring firewood into Salt Springs Park from outside Susquehanna County. Exotic pests are spread when infested firewood is transported to new areas. We are particularly vulnerable to becoming infested with the emerald ash borer at this time.

Firewood is available -- $5.00 for a 1’ x 16" x 16" stack. It is available for purchase from staff when the Wheaton House is open, May - September, Sat, 9:30 am to 4 pm; Sun, 12:30 pm to 4 pm; OR by chance or by appointment (call 570-967-7275); OR by pre-order when you make your reservation.

Fires

Fires are permitted only in camp stoves or the fire rings provided. Please be careful. All fires must be extinguished before leaving the campground.

No Small Appliances Allowed

Although the cabins do have electricity, they are not wired to handle small appliances such as microwave, hotplate, or space heater. They will blow the circuit. For heat in the winter, propane heaters are the only type allowed.

Winter Camping

Camping is allowed year round. Note, however, that the road to the campsites and cottages is not plowed. You can park in the parking lot and walk the short distance. Note also that the cabins are unheated; only propane heaters are allowed to be brought in.

Trash

Please help keep the park clean and attractive. Dispose of trash in the park trash cans and dumpster or take it home with you.

Visitors

Outside visitors are permitted from 8 am to 10 pm.

Occupancy

Maximum number of people per campsite is six.

Check-In / Check-Out Times

Check-In time is 3 pm, and Check-Out time is 2 pm.

Quiet Hours

Quiet hours are between 10 pm and 8 am.

Hunting & Fishing

Hunting is permitted in accordance with Pennsylvania State Law in most of the park. It is not permitted in the campgrounds or in the Natural Area — this includes the picnic and parking areas, the hemlock grove, and the Fall Brook and waterfalls area. In other parts of the park, hunting is allowed. See the Pennsylvania Game Commission's website for full details on hunting and trapping laws and regulations.

Fishing is allowed in accordance with Pennsylvania State Law. See the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission's website for full details on fishing laws and regulations.
