Overview

Red Bridge Campground sits on the eastern shore of Kinzua Bay off the Allegheny Reservoir in northwest Pennsylvania, offering a peaceful getaway for families and outdoor enthusiasts.

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.

The campground is well wooded with mature black cherry, hemlock and birch trees. The grounds are off the Longhouse Scenic Byway, a 29-mile loop that circles the Kinzua Creek Arm of the reservoir.

Recreation:

For hikers, the North Country National Scenic Trail crosses SR 321 one-eighth of mile south of the campground. At 4,000 miles long, the North Country National Scenic Trail stretches from New York to North Dakota.

The campground offers swimming and bank fishing. Boating is also available, with a boat ramp nearby.

Facilities:

Red Bridge offers about 65 reservable campsites, each with a picnic table, fire ring and tent pad. Hot showers, vault and flush toilets, drinking water and a dump station are provided. Some sites are waterfront. Others have views of the water. Sites with electricity, water and sewage hookups are also available.

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