male clothing optional campgrounds. We take this challenge seriously and continue to make changes and improvements from season to season. The 2009 season, which begins Friday, May 1 at 10 a.m., is the camp's 24th year Hillside is an attitude-free environment and we wish to keep it that way. It's a place where men can be themselves in the mountains of Pennsylvania. Hillside is all about individual rights, respect and caring and to be a Hillsider is special to thousands of men each year. We ask that all Hillsiders help us keep it that way.Hillside members must be at least 21 years old. A picture ID is required showing birth date when the membership form is signed.
Located on more than 235 secluded acres with over three miles of walkable roads, visitors can always find something to do. Excellent camping sites exist throughout Hillside with some ideal campsites along the shaded creek that runs through the campground.
If fun-in-the-sun is what you want there are sites on the Landing Strip located almost in the middle of the camp. For those who want to get away there are a few remote sites.
Most sites have water and electric with clean rest rooms nearby, flush toilets, showers and a pure water supply.
For groups there are very large sites that can accommodate groups of 80 or more campers. Also, Hillside has an incredible safe and secure 45-acre play area, isolated from the outside world. It is the largest safe and secure area of its kind on the North American continent!
The camp is clothing optional. A popular place to relax and meet old and new friends is around the in-ground pool where you can swim or just enjoy the sun. The pool's official opening is Memorial Day weekend but if the weather cooperates it's been known to open even sooner than that.
Friday and Saturday nights you can dance at the disco located in the Rec Hall. If dancing is not for you, you can star gaze by the huge bonfire from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. or relax at your site. On show nights the Rec Hall stage is spotlighted to showcase the hidden talents of campers. On show nights the bonfire and disco start at the conclusion of the show.
If you plan to camp at Hillside for a weekend, reservations are a must (note information on reservation page), otherwise you may find we are fully booked. No reservations are needed for day campers.
Sites and rental cabins are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. If you wait too long you might be able to get a site but it may not be the type of site that best suits you.
