About Alan Stokes

GySgt (retired 1983-2003) United States Marine Corps. Born, raised and currently reside in Western Pennsylvania

Alan Stokes purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Alan Stokes chose Benezette

2 acres of spacious, flat land surrounded by beautiful beech, pine and walnut trees that provides ample shading on those hot, summer days; not to mention a fantastic fishing stream runs through the back of the property. The wildlife is amazing to see which includes Elk, deer, bear, turkey and much more.

What makes this cabin unique

Wildlife viewing right on the property, including Elk and Deer. Step out of the back door and it's a very, short walk to Hicks Run for some fantastic Trout fishing

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful stay at this cozy cottage. The fireplace was what brought us there, but there was so much more. The elk were plentiful and to watch the deer walk through the yard by the light of the full moon was an additional blessing. Meeting Allan and his wife was also a privilege.

Best cabin in the area!

  • 4 of 5
We go to view the elk every fall for past 12 yrs. camp critter is, by far, the best cabin we have rented. Most other cabins don't have TV This one had HD satelite! It also has a water conditioner so the water didn't have that awful rotten egg smell that the other cabins have. This will be our go to cabin for years to come. It's also only about half a mile from an elk viewing area! Saw tons of elk and had a nice relaxing weekend. Can't wait to go back

We were very satisfied with and enjoyed our stay at Camp Critter. It was definitely as described. Never had we experienced such great long distance hospitality as we did with the owners of Camp Critter. We look forward to booking again.

The grandkids will remember

  • 5 of 5
We normally go further north to camp but stayed closer to home for our grandkids and saw more than we would have in Potter county. We awakened two days to 5 cow elk 40 feet off the porch and a small doe deer trying to get on the porch. We got to see more elk around the area and a black bear on the highway. There were several cranes in the creek and a few turkey next door. I have deer & bear around my house but go to Benezette to view the elk every year. We weren't disappointed and the grandkids got to watch them for over an hour grazing in front of them. My 2 year old granddaughter has a picture of her within 20 feet of an elk while she was on the porch that she will cherish. The area had more cabins than houses where we live but everybody along the road was quiet and respectful. Great location and more than adequate room for 8 people during the weekend long rain. When the grandkids got restless, a ride to Dubois and Renovo kept me from abandoning them in the woods.
The kids enjoyed the campfire in the evening even during the rain. Thanks!

Elk viewing areas throughout Benezette and close to cabin. Elk bugle season begins in September and continues well into the month of October; truly fascinating to view and hear them 'bugling' in the wild and within close range...a must see event!! Visitors from all over come to witness this amazing show.
