It’s family camping time! The very cute sounding Buttonwood Campground is a very family friendly campground in the amazing Juniata River Valley in the heart of Pennsylvania.
For those RV loving families, there are large sites (both back in and pull thru) with full hook ups, and some of the new Riverside sites offer you direct river access! Don’t have an RV? Don’t you worry! There are those back to basics campsites and cabins should you want something a little different. Always fun to change it up a bit!
Now, the important part. What the kids can do during their stay! Buttonwood Campground has an amazing activity schedule where the weekends are packed with super fun activities throughout the season. Ever had a Hawaiian Luau in Pennsylvania? You can now! The activities are incredibly family friendly, and let kids participate in mystery weekends, carnivals, Mexican themed weekends, and even weekends dedicated to chocolate! There are County Fairs to enjoy, and those spooky Halloween festivities in October.
We’re not stopping there! Mini-golf is a great activity for the whole family to enjoy together, and that’s exactly what else you can do at Buttonwood Campground. There are paddleboats, river tubing, jumping pillows, and even night time laser tag.

Good staff, great accommodations, clean restrooms. Good water pressure, "clean" sewer hookup (not all nasty like some) and even the cable TV gave a great picture. The only negative I can think of is the firewood is somewhat expensive. I'm going back to kayak that river!

This was a great campground. We were in the far loop against the fields - and it was a wonderful location. The folks were really nice, and my kids had a good time.
We stayed here as a "most of the way" point to go the Hershey RV show, and it was easy in / easy out.

We camped at Buttonwood for the first time the weekend of July 17. It is a great campground.The river is close. We played miniature golf. It is very clean and the landscaping is beautiful. We enjoyed it and plan to camp there again very soon.
