Camping Permit Online Application

This is only an application for a DCNR-Bureau of Forestry Camping Permit. This is NOT a reservation system. Campsites are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Obtaining a permit does not guarantee that the camp site will be unoccupied. This online system is a pilot program, and only a few forests districts are offering a limited number of campsites available through the online request process at this time. All campsites are available by contacting each State Forest District Office. Please choose a campsite from one of the State Forests indicated on the map, then complete the electronic form below. All fields must be completed. A valid e-mail address is required. You will receive a Camping Permit Number, and other pertinent information, in your e-mail account pending approval from the State Forest District Office.

Please Note: The district offices will only be able to process requests between the hours of 8am-4pm, Monday - Thursday, and 8am-Noon, Friday. If you submit a request during the weekend, the district office will not process the request until the next business day.

Please note that the Delaware, Bald Eagle and Michaux State Forests are no long participating in this pilot program. Contact the district office directly to reserve a campsite.

Please choose a forest district by clicking on the map below, or from the list.
