    We stayed at the Fowlers Hollow State Park campground last weekend. The park is located in the Tuscarora State Forest and is a trailhead for hiking, horseback riding and mountain biking. We went there primarily to enjoy Fowlers Run, a stream that flows just behind the 12 electric campsites. We also hiked a couple of trails with moderate difficulty.

    While we were there, Fowlers Run had a high flow rate creating the very nice visual of whitewater at the little falls and the ever present white noise sound. This combined with a small. low traffic campground made for a nice tranquil weekend to relax and unwind.

    The campground appears to have a recently constructed comfort station but no washhouse. The park is presently clearing out ash trees damaged by the ash borer. The park like the campground is well maintained.

    We stayed at site #3 which we liked.

    We returned to Tuscarora State Forest for mountain biking. While there, we took some photos of the Fowlers Hollow State Park Campground. Here are views of the campground and ash borer devastation. I hear that trees will be planted in the fall.
