Situated in a gap on the side of Blue Mountain, the campground at Colonel Denning offers large, private sites and easy access to some spectacular mountain scenery. Colonel Denning State Park does not experience some of the heavy visitation that other state parks do because it is somewhat off the beaten path. Located northwest of Carlisle, it nestles on the long ridge that forms Blue Mountain. Here you are on the southeastern edge of the Valley and Ridge region of Pennsylvania, which extends from the south-central part of the state northeast to the Scranton-Wilkes-Barre area.
