If you venture to this lovely park, you will climb out of the valley, up a winding road to the knob. Don't despair, there really is a campground up there! Blue Knob State Park is named for its majestic dome-shaped mountain. At 3,146 feet above sea level, Blue Knob is the second highest mountain in Pennsylvania, only 67 feet less than Mount Davis in Somerset County. Situated on a spur of the Allegheny Front and overlooking the scenic Ridge and Valley Province to the east, Blue Knob has spectacular views.
Sites are in open fields and wooded areas. Most sites have electric hookups. Two sites are walk-in only. Water, a sanitary dump station, very nice modern restrooms and playground equipment are available. A campground host is usually in attendance. When we were there in midweek in late September, the camp host was the only other occupant of the park.
Weather permitting, the swimming pool is open daily from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. from Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day, unless posted otherwise. The pool is only open on weekends for the first two weeks of the summer season. There are 18 miles of hiking trails from easy to arduous and they have a clear description of the trails so you can decide which fit your ability. Several of the park’s multi-use trails are designated for mountain bike use.
