Slumber Valley Campground

 
 

    Slumber Valley Campground is located along the Meshoppen Creek and nestled in the heart of Northeastern Pennsylvania’s scenic Endless Mountains.  Developed in 1963 for family outdoor recreation, Slumber Valley offers all family members access to the pure pleasure of natural serenity in rustic surroundings.  A well-stocked trout stream, the Meshoppen Creek rushes a winding path through the campground before reaching the splendor of a 20-foot waterfall cascading over rocks worn smooth with the ages.  High above the falls, a scenic overlook allows visitors a breathtaking view of the creek and the fern-covered rugged cliffs cut from glaciers millions of years ago. The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania recognized the beauty of this creek by including it in its annual Scenic River poster series.

 

     At Slumber Valley you can explore a forest of primitive towering pines and imagine the life of Native Americans who inhabited the area many years ago.  The Iroquois, or Indians of Five Nations which included the Mohawk, Oneida, Onondaga, Cayuga and Seneca, once used the land the campground encompasses and the surrounding area for hunting grounds.   Early morning walks reveal the variety of bird songs and wild flowers filling the meadows and fields throughout the campground. During the day, you can cast a fishing line; hike a nature trail; swim in an outdoor pool; or simply relax by your tent or camper.   And after dark, enjoy the untainted beauty of country star-lit skies. For those who appreciate the inspiration of nature, Slumber Valley should be top on your list of camping destinations.
