We own a small hunk of land approx. 3 acres that can accommodate 2 or more full size Rv. Although we do not currently have water and electric hook up we do have a natural spring about a mile down the road. It's the only water we will drink since we found it! And when you are visiting we don't mind you using our electric via extension cord. The land is flat and the area is generally quiet. We allow safe controlled fires in the provided shared fire ring and don't mind non aggressive dogs/cats etc. An outdoor trash can will be provided for items that can't be recycled or composted as we have recycling facilities about a city block away. It's about 6 miles from the grocery stores.

Suggested Local Attractions

We are centrally located in the Allegany mountains with Bald Eagle State Park, and Black Moshannon Valley State Park just a few short miles from us. They are beautiful parks that are free, where you can swim, hike and enjoy the outdoors. We are also only a 35 min drive from Penn State University. Football fans catch a home game while you're in the area. Penn State also has wonderful restaurants and lounges to enjoy. If you're a hunter you can check out the state game lands also just around the corner!

Great place to spend the night...

We drove approximately 30 minutes from I-80 to Howell Hollow. We had a great place to park and our hosts were wonderful from 6 ft. apart! We visited Bald Eagle State Park which is about a 40 minute drive and really nice! It poured rain on the way home from the park, but being from Arizona for 25 years, we enjoyed it! Our hosts were so kind! Thank you for hosting us! We really appreciate a safe place to park as we head for home!

Peaceful Stay

I had the misfortune to be caught on the road during the Covid-19 quarantine period. I was grateful to Charityhowell for allowing me to stay on their property for a night so I could rest up on my travels from Virginia to New York. Although we did waived from afar due to social distancing, I felt welcomed and would stay here again.

A Little Piece of Heaven

This is a great spot for peace and quiet!, Lots of room on a lovely, level, huge backyard where you may be greeted by chickens and turkeys (ducks are penned). The Howells are wonderful, easy-going, generous, and available to help or answer questions. If you are staying for a few days nearby there is: Penn State U., 30 miles away with a wonderful museum, arboretum and famous ice cream creamery. Phillipsburg, 7 mi in the other direction also has lots to offer, and Black Moshannon S.P. a little farther away.
Thank you Charity and Brian.

Howell hollow heaven...

This was a lovely spot to spend five nights...

There were chickens and roosters and turkeys and ducks - oh my...a large field my pups loved running around and a neighboring horse who was very friendly...

We met Bella who is a beautiful St. Bernard mix and very friendly!...

I enjoyed chatting with Charity and also the time I had to just do my thing...

Nearby grocery store, laundromat and post office were excellent...

Highly recommend this beautiful spot in rural Pennsylvania...

Half a dozen fresh eggs!

Located in a picturesque village on top of a mountain in central Pennsylvania. Our hosts were so accommodating, we felt so welcome. This morning Charity came out of the barn with half a dozen fresh eggs, for us, from her chickens in the barn. These folks are what make Boondockers Welcome so special.

Pleasant Holiday Weekend

Quiet, pleasant Memorial weekend in the Allegheny hills, away from typical hub-bub of campgrounds. Hosts checked on us frequently to make sure sure all was well. We were able to get some rest, some reno completed, enjoyed shopping in State College and took some bike rides on nearby trails. Would love to stay again. Thank you!

Howells Hollow

Howells Hollow was very welcoming. We were impressed by the huge, firm driveway and a very peaceful location. We love seeing places through Boondockers Welcome we would never see otherwise.

Peace and quiet after a long day on the road.

Brian and Charity hosted us at their wonderfully peaceful spot. Brian ushered us into a Level parking so we did not have to use our levelers or jacks or even unhook. Thank you so much for the use of your property. Timmy loved meeting your TommyCat. They almost became friends. We will stay here again sometime!

Dee and Mike.

Great Location with good space
