Pioneer Park Campground, Somerset, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $55.00
Overall Rating:

Nice campground with lots of activities. Fishing, swimming, mini golf, paddle boats, kayaking. You have to use theirs but rates are very cheap. Children activities on weekends and live band Saturday night. Mostly seasonal or long term campers. Very welcoming long term campers were very friendly, even invited us over for mountain pies and s'mores. Strict policy of no bikes after 8 PM. They even ride around to remind you just before. No golf carts buzzing around. We were forewarned by a long term camper that there is little water pressure on weekends so I filled our tank and used that when pressure was low. Our power pedestal breaker tripped 3 times while not overloaded so may need serviced. My wife said the restrooms were the cleanest she's seen in a campground. May just be our new favorite campground within an hour so drive from our home. We camped at Pioneer Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Prince Gallitzin State Park, Patton, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $23.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here twice this year so far. It has become our favorite campground. It's an hour away from home. Majority of sites have only electric, but they did add 20 or so, full hook up sites last year. We've only done 2 long weekends and electric only was fine. Would want full hookup if we were here for a week.

Dump and water stations are located just as you pull in with an additional fill up station just past the camp store. We only use the centrally located bath houses to shower, but find them clean. The showers are a little hot for my taste. You cannot adjust temperature, it's just a button that turns water on.

The sites we've been on so far are so level that I didn't need any blocks what so ever, just under stabilizers. Site is a paved back in with gravel and grass around picnic table and fire ring.

Lots of trails, bike baths, and nature walks daily. Beach was hardly crowded on a hot 90 degree day. Everyone we met was very friendly.

Camp host was seen several times picking up any litter. Park Rangers constantly patrol the campground which was nice.

Store sales pretty much everything, ice, firewood, groceries, etc. They deliver the firewood to your camp site if you purchase it there.

Good fishing for kids just past the beach area. Small fish but the kids love catching fish constantly. They also have boat rentals but we found them to be pretty steep in price unless you split with a group. Pontoon rental was $200 for the day or $50/hr. If you have your own boat there is a boat launch area just for campers but you will have to park your trailer in the visitor/2nd car parking area. I did see 3 sites that have additional parking for 2nd vehicles and or a boat. There are a few rustic tent only sites along with water front cabins available for rent.

Lots of people walking or riding bikes until dusk. Once quiet time hits, all you hear is crickets. Was very quiet considering the amount of campsites. We camped at Prince Gallitzin State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Hickory Hollow Campground, Rockwood, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

This was our second time at Hickory Hollow. Gravel roads but very well maintained. Mostly pull thru sites. There are 3 back in sites up next to the cabins. Leveling was a breeze. Hook ups were all newer and easily accessible. Two back in sites next to us actually had two sewer hook ups. Cable TV was a little snowy and not many channels but that is not the CG's fault. (Tried to catch some of the Olympics).

Sites have large concrete fire rings, not those tiny metal rims. Nice playground for the kids, a small residential style in ground pool. Seasonals are in their own area, only saw 1 golf cart in 4 days. CG is basically in the middle of a field so there is very little shade. At night it made great viewing of the Perseid meteor shower while there. (Kids loved seeing shooting stars every few minutes). We also saw a Bald Eagle flying over head daily. There is a stocked pond catch and release that the kids loved.

My family has moved our yearly family reunion to this CG we like it that much.

You will be hard pressed to find a nicer and cleaner bath house.

They do offer hay rides and have events on Weekends. It was a wing fling when we were there. Staff was very nice and even stopped to check in with us to see if everything was alright. We used the pavilion for our gathering which was great to have available. We camped at Hickory Hollow Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Mill Run, Mill Run, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $70.00
Overall Rating:

Check in was a breeze didn't even have to get out of vehicle. Worker provided a map, rules, key card to come and go from park, and an activity schedule. Once done checking in you meet an escort that takes you to your site then assist is backing you in. (We were on a lower "standard" full hook up site.). Backing in was interesting cause of the steep hill. My TV apparently is not geared to back up pushing an RV but I did get in the spot in one shot thanks to the escort.

There is tons to do at this park if you have kids. There is something going on constantly ranging from Fire truck, train, hay type rides, dance parties, bingo where you win candy bars. (I won twice in a row left with 16 candy bars). There is snowless tubing down a hill, Gaga ball (whatever that is. We never did check it out.). Nightly outdoor movies. There is also two pools. The lower is smaller and less crowded. It even has a splash zone for the smaller kids that can't/don't swim. This is the hidden gem of the park in my opinion if want away from the crowds. The upper pool is larger and has two water slides a pretty big splash zone, a bouncy house, water balloon battle area (you have to pay for the balloons). We went to the big pool on a Thursday and it was not crowded at all. The building next to the upper pool houses the store and restaurant. We ate there on a night it rained all day. The pizza was pretty good for an RV park.

There is a lot of golf cart traffic but it did not really bother us. Cart rental is $60 dollars for 24 hrs. No thanks! We just used my truck to run to the store and to the upper water park. Park rules no traffic after 11pm. Only people I saw driving around after that were workers checking on the comfort station near us.

The lower/cheaper part of the park in more woodsy and less busy than the upper/more expensive part but the upper are pull through sites. I had to clean debris off my awning 3 times from the trees. But it did storm while there for a day and a half. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Mill Run in a Travel Trailer.
