Does anyone have any firsthand experience at any of the campgrounds in Benezette? Thinking about trying to do a trip to see the elk.

Have never camped around Benezette, however I have visited on several occasion. Magnificent animals those elk. You seem to see more in the town than out at the Elk overlook.

Another option would be to stay at Parker Dam State Park. It is close to I-80 and only about a 20 minute drive to Benezette.

Thanks all! I knew there was at least one campground in Benezette but couldn't find any info on it. Also the SP would be a good idea, I didn't know it was that close.

Parker Dam is very nice there also is Sizerville State park near Empourium it is about a half hour ride from there to Benezette And a little further away is Sinnemahonning state park. All three are very nice parks.


Its all fun and games then crasher gets a site beside you

The campground run by Benezette Store is nothing fancy but I was by there in the Spring (still snow on the ground in that part of the state) & saw a heard of elk right in the campgrounds.


Can't get much closer than that!

They have small shelters at each site that are dated, but I guess it's better than nothing.


Make sure you travel the road on right just past the Benezette Store when heading North - it's a hot spot in the fall for elk.

The new visitors center / viewing area looks nice - but no elk when I stopped back by in August (mid-day).
