Drive up Camping north of Lancaster, Reading, Allentown, or Stroudsburg ?

Hello Everyone

I'm kinda new to the area and I would like to take my kids on a 2 night camping trip in southeastern PA, I would like to do a very easy off road trail and then just find a nice spot for a camp site

Near a creek so the kids can do a little creek walkin

Looking a bit north of Lancaster, Reading, Allentown, or Stroudsburg ?

Any Suggestions?

Thanks a Bunch !!

I don't know how far Norht of Reading you are thinking but Locust Lake State Park in Schuylkill County is a fantastic spot to camp. If you go there, ride through and pick a site, don't just take whatever. It is worth the fees for me and with kids along it would be for you I bet as well. If you were planning to stick closer to Reading... between RT309 and 61 would be a good place to look, The Appalachian Trail runs between them.

^^ I loved Locust Lake when i was a kid. Im not to far away from the campground, so it was our 'go to' place. Easy bike trail around the lake, beach, hiking trails boating etc etc..

If your looking for something other thn a campground. Schuylkill County (Pottsville, Minersville, St. Clair) area has many easy miles and miles of trails.
You can look into "Reading Anthracite Offroad Area" which (requires) a yearly permit... I have yet to run into anyone with a permit tho :/ RAOA website or google should get you maps of the area.
