This campground is definitely a one night stopover only. Roads are paved but sites are either gravel or packed soil and most are not very level. Lots of trees so no satellite but there is cable which was usable. Lots of permanent resident sites that are very unsightly. The worst part was the bathroom. It was probably the worst I've ever encountered in a campground. Nasty would be a nice description of it. It was very old, sinks were rusty, commodes were stopped up and showers were terrible. Electrical was OK but water pressure was low. They did have a rather nice pool although it was small. Would not consider staying there again unless absolutely no other choice. - RonaldS

The camp ground is beautiful with nice trees. There is a pool but we did not use it as we were here only overnight. All the spots are gravel and pull through but not very level. The utilities were good but water pressure varried a bit. The owner showed us to our spot and was very friendly. I thought the price was high for no amenities other than a pool. - esta34950

Fall camping in Penna means chilly, wet weather and falling leaves. Donegal Campground is easy to find. The owner is as sweet a person as you'd ever meet and lives in a doublewide right on the premises. Wifi is limited but cable, water, sewer, electric were all in excellent working order. The owner takes you to your pull through site and helps guide you in - perfectly level! Bathrooms and showers are close by, clean and comfortable to use. Some permanent sites up on the hill and somewhat secluded. Great restaurant with duck pond close by. Verizon and T-Mobile phones worked fine at this campground. We will definitely camp here again in 2017. - tomas_grupos

PROS: large, clean pool, large updated playground, alot of activities planned on weekends, large stocked fishing pond, Good Sam discount and all activities including fishing are free to campers CONS: No cable or WIFI, sites very close together, power goes out when AC is being used by too many transients, children unsupervised on bikes, golf carts and ATV's throughout park - blondieemtp

We camped with our 5 and 3 year old grandsons and they really enjoyed the playground, especially the huge, toy filled sandbox. We also used the outdoor pool as well as the indoor pool. This campground is about 13 miles from Idlewild Park, a mile from a zoo, and a mile from the PA turnpike, so it is well situated. But, the campsites are on the floor of a valley and when it rains the water sits on top and you are left with mud and/or ankle deep water. If you use this campground, make sure it is in dry conditions with no rain in the forecast. - rvrose

The sign for the campground was easy to spot. This place is Very WELL MAINTAINED! The office/Gatehouse is at the front entrance! The lady who checked us in was super nice and friendly after check in two workers got into their golf cart to show us our site. Nice site (the lanes were a little tight for a 41 ft 5th wheel but do able). They helped us back in like a pro's! Site was great! This place is I would say 75% seasonal sites. I like that there is not a turnover of campers. The seasonal camp owners we met to said they had been here many years. The seasonal campers take pride in here their sites and make them look amazing. The staff.....SUPER AWESOME! I think the outside pool is the biggest we have ever seen!( It is like 1/2 of a football field in size. The inside pool could be a litter cleared. Lifeguards were on duty when we were there. The arcade was nice as well as the jump pillow and mini golf. Our kids had a blast. People have fun cruising the campground in their golf carts. We would and are planning on a return visit! PS: the fireworks were AWESOME as well as the Saturday night entertainment. ( Which was all included in the cost.) - WVRVGrandparents

I am doing this review from perspective of a transient camper, as compared to a seasonal one. This park is obviously focused on serving its seasonal customers more than travelers, and it appears that the seasonal folks really like it. But I would not stay here again if I was passing through area. Negatives first: -Required to pay in full at time of reservation, and no refunds are offered if you need to cancel, only a credit to a future stay. -The mostly-gravel (with some grass and mud) sites in the transient area are pretty close together, on narrow gravel roads barely wide enough for a trailer, and minimal maneuvering room opposite your site. Plus, after heavy rains (which was case for our visit), many of sites turn in quagmire of mud and puddles. As an older review mentioned, I needed to switch truck to 4-wheel drive in order to get into site. -Once I got RV into site, there was zero space for truck, and no nearby parking area. I was able to use a nearby site because the campground transient area was not crowded when we were there. If campground is full, maneuvering here in anything 30 foot or over would be horrendous. -The bathroom/shower facilities have very limited capacity considering the size of the campground. -Kids and families on golf carts drive around and around and around the roads endlessly On the plus side: -Staff was friendly and helpful in our limited interactions, and saw them go to great lengths to assist bigger rigs squeeze into tight spots while we were there. -Grounds and bathroom/shower facilities well maintained and cleaned. -Lots of amenities, like a mammoth outdoor pool, an indoor heated pool, mini-golf, arcade/game room, basketball and tennis courts, and a laundry, which we did not use but looked clean. -Good hot water in showers, but with low water pressure. -Sites had fire rings and picnic tables. -Good Verizon 4G coverage here, but no useful WiFi Bottom line: not to our tastes, maybe it will be to others. - We Roamed and Rambled

From the directions off the turnpike to driving in you will like this place! The sign off the road was very easy to spot. The first impression WELL MANICURED, WELL MAINTAINED! The office is right at the front gate super easy! The site we reserved had to be switched due to a last minute 400 tent campers. The lady who checked us in checked us in and got into her golf cart to show us our new possible site. Nice site (the lanes were a bit tight for a 32 ft trailer). She helped us back in like a pro! Site was great! Side to side was dead nuts on and we just had to level front to back. This place is I would say 80% seasonal sites. Personally I like that there is not a huge turnover of campers. The seasonal camper owners I talked to said they stayed there several years. The campers put HUGE effort and pride to make their sites look amazing. The staff.....AWESOME! We tried to melt our camper cord at the post. I went to the office and they sent the electrician. Maybe 10 minutes passed and I went to the RV store 10 minutes away. By the time I got back he inspected and reset the circuit I tripped, now that's service! ENORMOUS I think is how to describe the outside pool! Inside pool could be a bit better lit but our kids had a blast. A lifeguard was on duty both nights we were there. The bingo was PACKED! It is a real sense of community there. People have fun cruising the campground in their golf carts. I would, am going back! - n3qdz

Pass through park on our way home. Was very nice in shady areas. This park is in the mountains and rustic area. Will definitely use again. - Dkkirkland

Roaring Run is deep in the woods, so if you like peace and serenity, you will probably like it here. The amenities we liked were the pool, mini golf and bocce courts. Our favorite activity was to head to the adult lodge, which has leather couches and chairs, big screen flat TV and games. It felt like a cozy, woodsy library. Definitely check it out if you are over 18 and camping there. - josie7

We would not stay here again as most sites are on hillsides and very difficult to back a 38' fifth wheel into. The site they suggested was impossible. We had to use four wheel drive to go up the gravel hill. Then they have these stakes to tell you the site numbers that you must dodge. So we went to find another place as suggested by the front gate. We were half way into the site and a lady runs over to tell us it was a private one. It was not marked that way. We finally found a site and settled in. GPS takes you down a VERY STEEP hill and we found out that we could have not had that experience had we been told to not trust your GPS. Park was clean and quiet. Man at the gate checking us in was very nice. - rolling homeless

The bathhouse was closed for renovation until further notice when we camped here. Some sites are creekside (no sewer) and other full hookups were up steep, winding curves, between close trees. A little hard to navigate with a large camper but the scenery was beautiful. Owner is very friendly and the campground is gated for camper security. Owner emptied tanks on electric / water only sites twice a week at no extra charge. This campground is off the beaten path; yet close to village of New Stanton and the Westinghouse energy site. We would recommend this campground to anyone! - lapo99

Nice campground to stay for a few days. Good FHU in pull though areas. Water and Electric well placed. Sites level. Very good Wifi, I measured 5.5 Mbps. Verizon signal mostly unusable (campground is in a valley). Our pull though was large enough for our 36' motorhome and toad. Surface gravel. Fire ring and table. Staff were very nice and courteous. Propane is across from the office. Many washers and driers for use. The campground is on a river across from a railroad track, but did not find the noise a problem. Satellite reception good in D and T pull throughs, if you are along the river probably will not work. Bike/walking trail goes though the campground. There is a camp store, but we were here the last weekend, and it was mostly empty. Many full time sites, but well kept. There is a gate to get in, just a, post not high enough for Class A, have to get out and buzz the office in order to get in to register. The road in is steep, stay in 1st and will still need to brake. Campground roads are narrow, but easy enough to navigate in our class A. Would defiantly stay here again. - wtravlr1

As others have said the roads around this campground are very steep and you have to travel very carefully. The roads in the campground are also in tough shape and in need of repair. Our site was pretty level and had a view of the river. No one around us so we had plenty of space and were surrounded by grass. Service was very good.
The campground is also quite large and had all KOA type services. Seemed like there were quite a few full time campers as well.
Trains at all times of the day which did not bother us as we are used to them by now. We would stay again. - John Borajkiewicz

The campground has been improved over time however at least 2/3 of the total sites are leased to seasonals and there is a very evident clique feeling about the place from some of these seasonal individuals. The lower section appears to be occupied by transient workers who are in the area for the Marcellus shale gas plant, lots of loud diesel trucks with welders coming and going at all hours. How often does a train go by across the river? So often you'll never even notice! - Ulysses E McGill_The Paterfamilias

Very steep hill to enter the park. With our 45 footer we stopped just prior to the office in order to turn to the lower field. They were still a bit mushy due to recent storms. Gravel roads need smoothing. Easy level and utilities worked well. Lots of maneuvering room with easy exit. - hug448844

Nice long pull thru spots with full hook ups, looks like the area could flood and grounds were very wet while we were there. - DBLR

This is a nice quiet campground. People were very friendly and my daughter says the facilities were clean. They have pay showers but only $.25 for 10+ minutes. There was a nice pool and the park is very convenient to Pittsburgh. - rcsauce

The campground entrance was well marked and easy to find. Some of the internal roads were dirt with gravel scattered on top (which still became muddy when wet) and some were paved. Note that all of the roads in the RV site area were up a hill. They were easily maneuverable with a 36' DP motorhome, and there were shade trees on each site. Our back-in site was basically level, and an average width, and long enough to park the toad in front of the RV. The pad was gravel and in decent condition, and although most sites had some grass, it was on a hill between sites, which made it basically useless for our 3 Golden Retrievers. There was no cable TV, and no OTA stations. The water was easy to connect to, and the water pressure was sufficient. The sewer connection was at ground level, making it easy to use. The WiFi was easy to connect to, and the internet bandwidth was maybe a 4 out of 10, but it dropped out quite often, requiring a reconnect. Verizon cell signal was 3 out of 5 bars and 4G. We don't use restrooms or showers, so we can't render an opinion on those items. There was a dog park for our 4 footed friends, but it was a hike up a fairly steep dirt/gravel road to get to it. We did not notice any significant road noise. The price was reasonable for the services received. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We would probably stay here again. Please note: if you come here with a family, there are LOTS of activities for the kids and for the family (including a mini water park), and even some at night for just the adults. - Don Gagnon

Lots of bang for the buck if you have kids especially with all the water attractions. So much you can't do it all. We enjoyed our stay and plan to return. Tips...recommend renting a golf cart as the entire campground is sloped and some parts steep. And I'm not sure what the other reviewer experienced but golf carts weren't a nuisance at all. This was the best campground we've seen for having trees / foilage to buffer between sites. It had a real "woodsy" feel. Staff was friendly and helpful. - Sinjin79

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. - Newman252

This is a small campground with not many sites. This was my second trip to this campground and sadly not as enjoyable as the first time. The sites are very close together and open, but the the campground was not full midweek. We stopped here for one night while driving through and I think a truck rest stop would have had less road noise. Even small vehicle seem to be right outside the camper. The camp host were friendly. Biggest positive note, the dump station had easy access and a fresh water fill hose. - JGS

This is a small state park 41 total sites (4 full hook-up) including cabins. There are maybe 5 sites that don't look like a ski jump in full sun. You are either badly tilted side to side or very badly front to back. Bring a lot of leveling blocks. There is a long one lane road in and out of the park - make sure no one else is on it if you are towing 4 down -the only pull off is the dump station half way down the road. Bathrooms and showers were well maintained with a washer and dryer available at $1.25 and double sink for doing dishes. TV and satellite are hit and miss based on site. Not much to do in the park except relax and have a campfire. There is a shallow stream (4" to 6" deep) along the low side of the park - I didn't see any fish or wildlife in it. - Grayhound

The setting is beautiful, reminiscent of some of the state parks in Colorado. Campground is small but pleasant. Sites are gravel, reasonably level. There are four full hookup sites in the campground, all pull-through and closer together. Other sites have electricity only and are widely spaced. Utilities worked well; no Wi-Fi. Plenty of hiking trails in the area, along with a beautiful lake. Forbes State Forest is within an easy walk. Flush toilets and laundry available. This is not the type of place that you would like if you want an RV resort with all the facilities, but it is much more like camping with hookups. The only negative is the road noise. - Dashonthedash

This KOA was a challenge to get to from the north. Poorly chosen options in my GPS caused it to take me through Pittsburgh, and then routed me along state route 51, winding around narrow, poorly maintained roads during crush hour. It took over an hour to cross town. Then to enter the campground, I had to negotiate a very sharp corner. (If you're going to this KOA, be sure to come in via I-70 to exit 54. The campground is less than a mile from that exit, and you avoid the sharp turn. However, that turn impedes watching for traffic to the right.) Once there, I found the campground pleasant. It was hilly and well wooded, but the lanes were still easy to negotiate. My particular site was too short to park my truck directly in front of the trailer, but there was plenty of room to the side. Getting into Pittsburgh to see the museum was a difficult as getting to the KOA in the first place. There is just no easy route. They all meander slowly through long series of little towns. Although I liked my time in this park, if I ever return to the area, I will investigate options that might offer easier access. - Jim Fulton

This was our maiden voyage for our new camper, we choose this campground since it was only 45 minutes from our home. Very friendly staff, clean bathrooms and showers. Showers were free and had good hot water. We had a full hookup site, site was gravel but was very level, didn't need any blocks. Free cable TV and WiFi. Has good Verizon service. Nice pool and bounce thing for kids. Overall a good campground! - Medic005

BE SURE TO USE THE EXIT AFTER IRWIN! The driveway in, is steep, and narrow. We arrived after dark after using the Irwin exit on advice from our Co-Pilot GPS, and found after attempting to enter that we couldn't make the turn from that direction. Other than that the site was pull through and serviceable. Park is extremely busy, lots of traffic day and night, even in late November. Standard KOA features, playground, dog park, jump pillow, pool. Looks like they are doing some construction. Intererior roads are narrow, and dirt. - krmihalk
