Fall is here! Some of the leaves have already begun to change color.
If you are looking for a secluded vacation in Pennsylvania's tranquil, forested wilderness “ON” the banks of a big, beautiful, mountain stream then we have exactly what you are looking for!
Camp Guttalata is ideal for Family Vacations or for a group of adults any time of the year.
Come enjoy Central Pennsylvania's peaceful, scenic and natural beauty.
Our SECLUDED "CABIN" is nestled ON the BANKS of PENN’S CREEK’S CATCH & RELEASE SECTION, in Bald Eagle State Forest.
About 300 yards past the cabin our road dead ends and from that point on the stream and valley is accessible by foot or bicycle only.
This is where an uninhabited, forested gorge begins following a beautiful "small river" upstream with a Rails-to-Trails (improved abandoned RR Bed) along with stream-side trails.
The “Mid-State Trail” can also be accessed here.
Go up the mountain OR take …
the easy improved “Rails to Trails” which leads to a tunnel you can go through and then cross a trestle foot / bike bridge. This Rails to Trails is flat and beautifully forested. There are places where you can stop and view the stream.
There are also a lot of old logging roads and trails off Cherry Run Road where you can get totally immersed in the forest or even lost if you don’t have a good memory or compass. These trails / roads are also great for snowmobiling or cross-country Skiing.
This is also PRIME “WILD” TROUT WATER up through the gorge.
Camp Guttalata can accommodate up to 2 FAMILIES with a maximum capacity of 10 (4 adults and 6 children) ... OR . . .
a group of up to 8 adults.
Fly Fishing, Hiking, Mountain Biking, Inner-Tubing
Snowmobiling and Cross-Country skiing can be had in the winter
Kayaking and Canoeing can be had at this time of year if water levels accommodate. It is best when water levels are higher. Early Spring is great.
Many major PA species of wildlife can be observed in the area, especially on a float, while hiking, mountain biking or just going for a ride in the forest or neighborhood.
FLY FISHING - We are located in WORLD-CLASS PRIME "WILD" TROUT WATERS (Catch & Release only). This fishery is one of the most prolific wild trout streams in the world!! There is a significant population of 15”-18” WILD TROUT in the waters around the cabin and upstream. There is also a notable population of trout in the 18” – 25” category.
Winter can be a good time for "hooking up" with the largest "WILD" trout in Penn's.
Big Trout can also be had throughout the spring and sometimes well into the summer, autumn and winter.
HUNTING - Great turkey, grouse, deer (archery & buck season) and bear hunting. Ask for pictures.
One of the best and largest Pheasant hunting areas is within 15 minutes of the cabin!
