Hickory Creek Wilderness Ranch & Campground

Lasting memories, genuine western hospitality, and endless recreational activities await guests at Hickory Creek Wilderness Ranch. 

Serving guests since 1994, Hickory Creek Wilderness Ranch prides itself on providing a high level of personalized service; spacious electric and water hook up and primitive camp sites in our 75 acre campground (Campground map); clean, comfortable accommodations; well maintained equestrian trails; numerous equestrian events annually; and the area's 'hot spot' where Champion Bull Riders from the PRCA and the PBR come to ride.  Hickory Creek Wilderness Ranch is the ideal setting for families, riding clubs, and other small groups to escape.  

Leave the hustle and bustle of the big city behind and find yourself in the peace and tranquility of the Allegheny Mountains. 

Located on the western edge of the Allegheny National Forest, our 150+ acre ranch is just a stone's throw away from the only congressionally designated wilderness in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania -- The Hickory Creek Wilderness!!  Encompassing 8663 acres, this pristine area abounds with many species of wildlife. 

Our area offers hunting, fishing, boating, canoeing, kayaking, golfing, hiking, and sight-seeing.
