Dewdrop Campground sits on the Kinzua Arm of the Allegheny Reservoir in northwest Pennsylvania, offering a popular getaway for boaters and families.

Natural Features:

The Allegheny National Forest covers nearly half a million acres and is populated primarily with black cherry, maple and other hardwoods. The Kinzua Dam, built in 1965, impounds the Allegheny River to form the 25-mile-long Allegheny Reservoir.


Water activities abound, including lake and pond fishing, boating and water skiing. A boat launch is available for convenient lake access.

The area also offers beautiful scenic drives. A variety of planned routes are available, with maps available at Forest Service offices.

Additionally, a 2.5 mile interpretive trail winds around the campground.


This large campground offers 74 reservable family campsites that include a picnic table, fire ring and tent pad. Flush toilets, drinking water and a dump station are provided.

Amenities such as firewood, ice, interpretive services and 24-hour campground attendants are offered at the site.

Nearby Attractions:

The Kinzua Dam and Bridge are a short drive away, as is a scenic railroad from the area's bygone industrial era.
