Need to find a quiet tent campground off I -81

We need to locate a nice quiet tent campground off of I-81 for Saturday July 24. Would love to stay in a State Park or National Forest campsite. Our plan is to do some hiking at Ricketts Glen State Park near Scranton.. They do not have any availability for camping.

we will have a dog and no kids. We only want to stay one night. Would love some suggestions. Thanks

The town of Benton, in Columbia County, is located just south of Ricketts Glen. There are several campgrounds located in or near Benton. Check out this link for info:

You can also try Red Rock, Stillwater & Millville for campgrounds.

Grassmere Campground is also located near Benton, but it's not listed. Here's a link with info:

I hope you have a great time visiting my neck of the woods.

Here's a link to World's End State Park, which is located north of Rickett's Glen.
