  • I have been to Calendonia many times, for photography, Kayaking, or hiking. They have great scenic views from the falls to hiking trails. This last time my family and I went Camping. Just like the many times before. Beautiful, clean and quiet :D
  • I try to come here once a week to hike and just enjoy the outdoors. Beautiful scenery, great trails, and for the most part, clean. If you get the chance, make a trip here. You wont regret it.
  • Their website says $15 per night for camping but after driving a distance to get there that wasn't the case. $29 to pitch a tent and lay my head as I drive cross country on a budget, I think thats crazy and greedy. The clerk said there's nothing he could do to override the system. Yes there is. Honor the website, take my $15, and write a note to your boss and explain what's right. Either way, I saw the campground and the sites are two star, cramped, and many are not flat and grassy. And you shouldn't charge PA residents less, that shows your operating the campground like a business and not a public service.
