A no frills forest service campground located on the Allegheny river. Tight wooded sites with lots of low overhanging trees were fine for us (25' RV), but probably not advisable for big rigs. We enjoyed the walking trail that circles the campground and follows the river. There is also a boat launch area for canoes and kayaks. A quiet campground in the national forest within close proximity to the Kinzua Dam and reservoir as well as lots of hiking trails. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Great location for hiking in the Allegheny National Forest. The park is located close to Warren, PA which has all the major shopping. Park has widely spaced, large sites. Bathrooms and showers are kept spotless by the campground hosts. One site at the campground entry has water and electric for $30 per night, all others are 30 amp electric only. The other campground to consider in the area is Red Bridge located southeast of Buckaloon. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Really great sites. Lots of shade and room. Not a lot of restrictions on cars or visitors. Close to town. Not a lot to do at the campground. Has good fishing spots, and a few places to swim. If your willing to drive or want to canoe, lots can be found to do. The playground is very poor and needs updated. Only some of the sites can be reserved. Most sites are fairly level.

Allegheny National Forest campground. This is everything a campground should be. Large, well separated, private sites are easy to get into. Our favorite low, round fire rings. Charcoal grill. Large tables. Sites have 30 amp power but no water at sites. Sites 1-43 have power @ $18, sites 44-58 not electric @ $16; ½ price for Golden Age Passport. Potable water at dump station and scattered areas in campground. Relatively new, beautiful, clean rest room / shower building. Showers have doors and benches. We would come here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed on site:13 because DNCR website stated it was more secluded than the others. The best site is definitely # 18. Even though it is on an inner loop, it is private and well shaded with the firepit at the rear of the site. #16 is also a nice site. Great if you are reserving 2 sites. It will get the late afternoon sun though. Our site (13) has its firepit 20' from the road, had sun until noon and wasn't quite as secluded as advertised. It did have a nice area in the rear under the pines for a hammock. All of the walk-in tent sites looked nice. Bathrooms and showers were modern and very well kept. Dishwashing sinks were way too small and no table to store clean dishes while washing dirty ones. CG was quiet and clean. Had nice trails and a large beach within walking distance. Park does attract a lot of people and the beach was crowded almost all week. Fishing was ok. Nice lake for kayaks. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Great state park camping. Only electric hook-up but pretty great sites. We have stayed a few times and really enjoy. Lower loop close to playground and allows pets. More private and quiet sites away from these things. Miles and miles of hiking. Swimming at beach. Boat rentals. Fishing. Good educational programs. Sites fairly level. All back in.
