Park your rig to get the best view if you have an extension for electric. The drive up to Mountain Top is rather steep and rough but can be negotiated even with a tow. No transient sewer sites. Getting to the dump station is a bit tricky; unhook your toad before using it. A honey wagon comes around on Wednesdays. 50 amp electric had full voltage; a staffer said earlier problem has been fixed. Follow the camp's directions and use Exit 16 from Route 28. GPS/Maps will have you exit at No. 14 and put you on a narrow, hilly and twisting route. - Mtmoi

As others have commented, there are no other RV options in the Pittsburgh area. That said, we have been visiting annually for over 8 years and are very glad to have Mt Top, new family of owners are doing their best. They have added 19 spaces and gravel to several perimeter sites. Yes, it needs sewer or greater availability of pump outs than weekly. Perhaps they will arrange that. Certainly the dump access and egress is rough. This trip I noticed many tenters/several RV campers use the shower in the basement of the home. I used the laundry this visit for a load of sheets, it was ok. For all the rigs, perhaps they could add laundry machines and showers, but it will take time. The sites are level and it is a gorgeous setting overlooking the valley. Very safe and secure. Spacious. The access road Sun Mine is owned by the county so not under control of the RV site owners. The owners are very helpful and cordial. They set up a table in the basement for books swaps and free stuff. We replaced our coffeemaker while there and donated the one we had which was too small for us. As I said, it is the only place around and they are doing their best, it will take time. They get filled for events like the recent US Open, Steelers games, concerts, etc. - Pat and Jerry

One thing the Pittsburgh area needs is RV campgrounds. This campsite is about a 30 minute drive. Due to major bridge repair there were detours. Check the campground website for temporary directions. We reached the destination at the top of a mountain on Sun Mine Road. As we crested the hill it is surprisingly level and the sites are comfortable in size. The hilltop is grassy, firm soil, no muddy areas in sight. The odd thing about the placement of the water and electric hook-ups is that they are split with one hook-up on each side of your trailer. Our RV has the water input at the front with the electric about midway along the side of the trailer. Luckily our 50' water hose just made it to the faucet by passing under the trailer to the other side. The electric cord also was just long enough to reach the 50-amp circuit. The sites on the perimeter of the mountain top have fantastic views of the trees, farms and hillside below, some with lovely sunsets. This would be a beautiful place to be during fall leaf change. Most of the sites are treeless and open. There is no cable or Internet but with an antenna can pick-up many local channels with a strong signal, no pixelating. You must be self-sufficient to stay here. No laundry; one shower and toilet behind the owners log cabin...port-a-john on site. No sewer hook up at the sites but there is a convenient dump station to use for short stays. For longer stays the owner comes by to empty your black and gray lines. We will be staying again I'm sure because of family in the area. The public road to the campground is in good condition but narrow. The private road into the camp is in desperate need of repair...this place is under new ownership since 2014. Hopefully they will make the needed corrections and improvements. - Lucy's Friend

Great experience. Staff was helpful at all times. We stayed for a week in July and had a blast. Kids loved the jumping pillow and play area. Pool was broke first day, but they quickly had a company out to repair it so the kids were able to use it the rest of the week. Fishing was even good in their pond. We will be back! - krp2nite

Sites are not level, not even close. After bending my rear jack and tripping the hydraulic breaker I moved to another site. Managed to get almost level and found the dump connection a foot up a hill from my dump outlet, would not drain. Poor cable. Shade is good and park is scenic but needs some site work. Worth about $12, not $45. - Marathon dan

Very nice KOA. Playground, jumping pillow, fishing lake, etc. The campground is a bit hilly. The site was not level side to side, so I had to use the leveling blocks. But it was otherwise very nice. Spacious. Good picnic table and fire pit. The bath house was close by and it was clean. It was a bit rustic, but it was very suitable. We stayed there for one night on the way back from a two week trip, but we would stay here longer if we came through this way again. Its a very nice campground. The staff was incredible friendly. They had a pirates weekend, so the staff was all in costume. They had an ice cream social the night we were there, which was very nice. Good place to stay. - Brad K

The first time I stayed here I parked in the upper level. This time I requested the lower level "down in the valley" with pull through sites and no trees. The first time was shortly after the winter and it was a bit of a mess waiting to be spruced up for the season. This time was the end of the summer season and I was amazed at how nice it was. The place is nicely landscaped, immaculate and groomed yet I never saw anyone working on the place--therefore no, noisy lawn mowers or leaf blowers. And no overflowing dumpsters that I have seen in some places as the season wound down. The views of the surrounding hills are lovely. And they have the best wifi I have encountered anywhere. Even with the park heavily occupied, the wifi was fast. Worked better than my Verizon "mifi" ever has--though the latter did work there as well. Utilities were easy to access and the spot was level enough. - nanzhere

We stopped overnight on our way to Virginia. Easy access from freeway and very large pull thru spaces.
Quiet except for volunteer fire department siren that went off on the middle of the night.
Easy, casual reservation and liked not having to give my credit card info for a one night stay.
We will definitely add this location to our stopover whenever in the area. - Tumblewood

WE really liked this campground. This is a very friendly, family-oriented campground that was a great place to stay for a week. It's a combination of a transient area with HUGE, long gravel pull-through sites on a large flat, open field with a community of semi-permanent trailers spread over the adjoining hillside. But while the trailers may be semi-permanent, the residents are not. They are not allowed to live in them full-time. The trailers are mostly used as weekend retreats by their owners, and the campground community is definitely that, a community of friendly people who escape here for short periods. Not fancy, but nice and homey.
The staff here is very friendly and helpful. We were here for Customer Appreciation day, with everyone gathering outside the camp store for free hot dogs, cupcakes, and conversation.
If you're not a hunting fan, steer clear of the camp store, which is decorated with decades worth of trophies collected from around the world by the late former owner. But we found it fascinating.
We'd definitely stay here again. - telecommuting camper

This campground is great for traveling workers but not for a family stay. Very reasonable weekly and monthly rates. Campground is cut into the side of a hill and sites are narrow. Owners are nice folks. We stayed for 2 weeks because our options were limited for staying the area. - nascaron

Stay as far away from this place as you can. For $50.00 all you get is W/S/E at a fairly level site. No cable or internet, no over the air TV. - Chiefmorgan

Close to I-79. Roads in park are straight and turns are easily made, however, the surface is very rough. Staff helpful but office closed most of the time. Most of the sites are seasonal and these are spacious and well maintained. The transient sites are not. While they are very level, they are close to each other. With slides and awnings out you may have less then 10ft separation. Many are pull-thru but then they put someone behind you leaving very little length to the site. When it rains they flood. Other then the poor transient sites and roads, the park is clean and well maintained. There is a very nice play area with a basketball court. There is no wi-fi but our AT&T and Dish satellite worked well. There are very few choices for rv parks in the Pittsburgh area so we would stay here again. - atwig

Interior roads need repaved. Sites are gravel/grass and very narrow, put your awning out and it will rest on the slide out awning of your neighbor's. Very minimal staff. There is no one in the office, it asks you to call a cellphone number only after ten o'clock. Security gate straightforward plastic I'D card. Pools is open and looks clean and tidy. Games room and community hall: live bands on a Saturday. No dog park but plenty of walks with one unusual feature: a footbridge that goes into Main Street Zelienople open at one end locked at the other?? Some contractors, but mostly weekenders. The "TS" sites are kept for short term visitors. - BRIDGEMAN
