 Situated in a rural setting, Warren County is flush with camping opportunities. Campers have the option of modern conveniences in camping areas with RV hookups and cabin rentals, or truly "roughing it" deep within the Allegheny National Forest. There are remote boat-in and hike-in campgrounds around the sprawling Allegheny Reservoir, as well as camping areas along the Allegheny River and smaller creeks and streams in the area. There are camping areas offering fun and educational family activities, and those offering nearly complete solitude. So, whatever your preference, you will find it here.
 
Camping in the
Allegheny National Forest
    The Allegheny National Forest offers endless camping opportunities. There are numerous developed campgrounds around the Allegheny Reservoir, as well as other areas of the forest, including Hearts Content Recreation Area. In addition, "dispersed camping" is allowed, with certain restrictions. The following is an excerpt from their website:
Camping is permitted almost anywhere in the Allegheny National Forest. Camping restrictions are as follows: Camps may not be set up on the shores and within 1500 feet inland of the timberline around the Allegheny Reservoir, or the shore of Tionesta Lake, except in a developed campground area designated for such use. No camping is permitted within Jakes Rocks and Rimrock Overlooks, and in Old State Road Recreation Area (which has been closed); within 1500 feet either side of the center line of the Allegheny Reservoir Scenic Drive (includes Longhouse National Scenic Byway and portions of State Routes 59, 346 and 321) and the main access roads into Jakes Rocks and Rimrock Overlooks. Camping is also prohibited in Hearts Content Scenic Area and Tionesta Research Natural Area, along Loleta Grade between Loleta Recreation Area and Forest Road 592 from Memorial Day to Labor Day, and in the Duhring area near Spring Creek. Camping is not permitted within 1500 feet of either side of the main channel of Kinzua Creek from Red Bridge upstream to Mead Run. Dispersed camps must be at least 200 feet from any stream, and you cannot camp in excess of 14 days at any site or relocate within 1500 feet of the site just occupied.
   The secluded Hearts Content Campground, on Hearts Content Road, offers a nicely-kept lawn, with a playground and seating. Campsites are around the perimeter.
