Hearts Content Recreation Area Campground Professional Review and Guide
"The name of the campground area says it all. You can get wonderful scenery; peace and quiet; backcountry hiking, biking, or skiing; and wildlife viewing to your heart’s content. The recreation facilities at Hearts Content were constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) in 1936. These include a picnic area, a pavilion, and the campground, which is located on the other side of the forest road from the day-use area. Next to the picnic area is a lovely stand of old-growth forest consisting of pine, hemlock, and beech trees more than 300 years old.
A mile-long interpretive trail meanders through this National Scenic Area, and a visit to Hearts Content is incomplete without walking its length. The spectacular trees here provide you with some sense of what Penn’s Woods, as the forests in Pennsylvania were once called, were like before the early 1800s, when logging operations began harvesting timber stands that had stood for centuries."
