Campsite Fontana

Fontana Park located a mile south of Hazleton, off Highway 150, is the county’s most popular camping destination. The campground has its own shower house with flush toilets, and a dump station. There is a lot to do while camping at Fontana Park. Fishing is popular both above the dam and in the creek that winds along the campground below the dam. The nature center is open on weekend afternoons, and campers can walk to the live animal display, which is open throughout the day. Also in walking distance from the campground are nature trails, shelter houses, and a playground. During most weekends, campground hosts are stationed in the campground. The campground at Fontana Park fills quickly, especially once school is out in late May. Some sites are available for reservations. Sustainable Living Cabins offer overnight comfort with solar electricity and energy efficiency. Cabins have a private drive. Each cabin has two private bedrooms, living/dining room, bathroom with shower, and outside porch. Call 319-636-2617 to reserve a cabin or campsite.
