Loved October Mountain State Forest for morning hikes. The variety of trails is excellent, long and short, steep and gradual. It also looked as if there were all kinds of off road and horse trails as well. It's a well maintained facility with something outdoorsy...More

This is my second trip to October Mountain State Forest's campground in the past few years. The last time I camped at Site #46 (which is relatively private). This time, I got the LAST open spot - #44 (that's what I get for delaying proper...More

We did not end up staying for the night that we booked, as the campground is right next to a power plant and this was not mentioned at all. The noise was the opposite of peaceful, and rattled our nerves, so we left and were...More

Does the campground have full hookups? What are the rates for a 28 foot RV? Are there minimum or maximum number of days to stay and to reserve?

Response from Deb B |
No hookups. $17/night + 8.65 registration fee through Reserve America. Not sure if you can do only 1 night, but there is a state-wide limit of 14 total days at any one park between Memorial and Labor day. RV spaces are... More
