Hillside Campgrounds has partnered with Campground Automation Services to provide a 24×7 online reservations system. Experienced Hillside campers that know what site they want and for what days, can go online and make a reservation. Just pick the date, site number or point to a site on the interactive map, then enter the number of men in the group. A credit card is required and the reservation must be paid in full at the time of reservation.

It is highly recommended if you are new to Hillside or are booking a cabin, that you call the reservations line and speak to our professional staff. This assures you will be matched with the best site based on your camping equipment, camping style and level of privacy.

Extra day for free for 4th of July Weekend Reservations – This year the 4th of July falls on a Tuesday. Your booking of the 4th of July weekend, now lets you stay until Tuesday for free. Pay the required 3 nights holiday weekend rate (Friday-Monday), and stay for 4 nights (Friday-Tuesday).

Hillside Campgrounds – doing it right for 32 years!


Welcome to Hillside Campgrounds, a gay owned and operated camping resort, that has been serving the gay male community for 32 years! Open from May through the end of September each year, we offer a unique, private setting on more than 235 secluded acres in the Endless Mountain region of Northeastern Pennsylvania.

Whether your camping style uses a tent, a popup camper or a rental cabin, our experienced staff can help you decide between a site in the middle of all the action or a secluded site deep in the woods.

As a clothing optional, attitude-free environment, your experience at Hillside Campgrounds can be as busy or as relaxed as you want. Make new friends at the pool, hike the nature trails, explore our wooded playground, join the crowd at the nightly bonfire, or dance the night away in our disco. Younger or older, bigger or smaller, bears or leather, whatever your style of men, you can find a themed weekend to pique your attention.
