We stayed here for several nights while visiting friends in the area, and we needed full hookups after dry camping for a few days before. The campground is mostly populated by seasonal campers, and the owner was quite friendly when he greeted us. But overall the campground can best be described as shabby. The view behind our RV was a field of rubble across the street. The site was gravel, but surrounded with mud. The front view was of well-past-their-prime motorhomes set up for seasonal camping. Tight curves on the interior roads. A good place to stop on the way somewhere else. - DunellenGuy

This was an overnight stay for us on an extended trip NW. The site was level but very wet due to much rain. Roads to the campground are rural, narrow, steep hills and sharp curves. Not recommended for larger RV's (ours is 32 foot). Friendly seasonals and staff. Store/office not open during our stay. Watch the signs and LOOK for park entrance sign before pulling into unknown unpaved roadways. - Forest Woods

Older rustic campground. A bit out of the way to get there - several miles of rural paved roads. All the utilities worked. Campsite was grass. If the weather had been bad, it might have been a problem getting in and out. - Wagon Master

An aging park for sure - narrow roads throughout, but not a problem if you know what you're doing. The website lists the "maximum RV length" as very short, but I have a 26 foot TT and backed clear up to the wheels hit the curb in the site, and had no problem once I was unhooked. Very nice park, would stay here again in a second. The only real negative that I can say about the park is it's proximity to Pittsburgh Intl Airport, I love watching planes though, so it wasn't a problem for me! The other thing is that the "playground" for the kids is a sorry excuse for a playground. In all though, a nice park. - brian19889

Camped here many times - always F loop for dog. Bathroom cleaned twice a day, older military style fixtures and skylights to keep costs down but clean and efficient restrooms and showers conveniently located. Dishwashing stations are great. This is a great park for tents, tent pop ups and smaller travel trailers. Sites are not level and pads are small but plenty of room between sites. Great hiking trails and nice lake to swim in. Very quiet, wooded sites but airport is close by. Jets didnt bother us. Weekend movies and shows for kids and playgrounds. Walking paths for dogs. No sewer or water at site but dump station clean and easy to access. Potable water is from springs and makes the best coffee! Verizon phone limited, T-mobile not at all. Several digital TV stations near by. Senior discount and a few ADA sites. - tomas_grupos

We are in a motorhome and normally stay in the A loop. This trip, "A, B, C, and D" loops were not open in early May so we had to stay in the E and F loops. I would estimate 80% of the sites in these loops are not good for larger motorhomes. They are simply not sufficiently level or sufficiently long enough. Trailers & popups would be fine, but Motorhomes don't do well when it is necessary to raise rear wheels off the ground to get level! Site leveling aside, this is a wonderful State Park - many activities to enjoy. - AndersonFamily

We arrived on Saturday afternoon and left on Wednesday morning. They quoted $46 per night over the phone and told us that it would be $50 per night when we arrived. They said that they didn't know we had a large camper. That was not accurate because I always tell campgrounds what I have to ensure they have a site long enough. At $50 per night you would expect a lot more. There is no cable and no wi-fi. When we asked about cable they told us that for $50 we could get a cable box to get cable then when we return the box they would give us our money back. All travel pads are gravel. The campers are right on top of each other and in the double lots (Where they put the big rigs) you walk out your door to look at the door of the camper next to you. When we extended our awnings they were just a few inches away from our neighbors awning. They only allow 2 adults and 2 children under the age of 18 per campsite. All others are considered to be guests and you have to pay $3 for each day and $5 for overnight per person so for large families this could cost a fortune. The showers have the push button 30 second water supply which means hitting the button every 30 seconds. There has to be a better way to prevent excessive water usage. There was a sign on the shower stalls saying that they were going to renovate the showers this summer. I wonder if they put those signs up there each spring, its almost fall and the showers were not renovated. They were a mess and had spider webs in them. There is never anyone in the office. If you need anything you have to call someone and wait for them to go down to the office. They do not allow mats to be used. The owner tried to get me to park so far forward on the lot that the front of the camper was going to be sticking out in the road. I finally parked it back far enough to be out of the road. - buckeyetaz

If you are claustrophobic, Do Not stay here. Booked 2 nights and only stayed 1. The campers are so close, that our awning touched the neighbor. Said there was a fire pit and picnic table for each site. We did not have a picnic table. And be careful when using fire pit. Was afraid of setting something on fire, because everything was so close together. And good luck if you need anything, there is never anyone in office. And when you call they just get annoyed. First and last trip to this campground!!!! - Disappointed camper 2

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

We stayed 4 nights. Paid $45/night. No tax. No other fees. The reservation process was odd - had to call to reserve then go online to pay deposit via paypal. The public road to the CG isn't too bad - just curvy. What's bad is the 1/8 mile driveway into the CG which is a dusty mess. Our motorhome and jeep were covered in dust afterwards and I mean covered. There is a sign at the top to call a phone number which we did. Soon thereafter the owner drives up in a golf cart and conducts the check-in right there running our credit card through his cell phone gadget. We were led to our rim site and it was explained that our gray water would dump into a hose that drained down the mountainside. Huh? We pulled nose in and ran hoses under our motorhome in order to have the view from our large windshield. The DH hosed down the MH and Jeep even though we knew the same dust-mare would happen going back down the driveway. We were all set-up and enjoyed a beautiful sunset. The next day was warm and sunny. We quickly realized we had power issues because our a/c's couldn't run - not even a single a/c. We called. The owner came by and got a little defensive. He said he wasn't aware of power issues at our site. He offered to move us to an interior (non-rim) site which he thought would provide better power. We moved and he was right. The power was fine but now we had no view. If there is any sort of office or bathhouse or laundry, we looked and never saw it. The dump station is very narrow making it difficult (but do-able) for big rigs. There are porta-pottys in the field which smell awful even from afar. I didn't go near one. We could hear gun shots during the day so there must be a gun range nearby. Stargazing was excellent. We were underwhelmed by this CG and feel the pricing is ridiculous for what you get (or don't get - remember there is no sewer hook-up). We would stay somewhere else next time even if it meant a longer drive to the city. - GottaGoNow

We really enjoyed our time here. We were a little hesitant because the reviews here were less than stellar, however it's the closest RV park near Pittsburgh so we went ahead and booked. If you're thinking about it like we were, do yourself a favor and book here. You'll be glad you did. Thankfully we did because we thought the campsite was great! The sites were not on top of each other, they were level, and we got one of the cool "rim" sites that overlooks the valley. It made for beautiful scenery and the sunsets were gorgeous there. The hosts (who own and live on the property) were extremely nice and accommodating. There are only water and 20/30/50 amp hookups at each site but there is a truck that comes around on Wednesdays to empty your black tank. There is a gray tank dump that is readily available at each site so that's really nice since we don't fill our black tank nearly as fast as we do our gray. - Swept Together

Cost is for Passport America. Place very neat. We were in a campground, number 45, which had been recently set up (gravel, curb boards, water, electric meter). People at campground friendly, efficient and pleasant. Saw dump station with a large class A using it. Narrow but very accessible. There are ups and downs on the 908 and entrance road up and winding then gravel. But all very accessible just take you time. And so nice, quiet and cool up here on the mountain.
This is a wonderful quiet place to stay unless there is an event. - Peter K

Is geared towards seasonals. They have over 200 seasonal sites and about 15-20 visitor sites. Owner is very nice and personally escorted us and helped us park. It was reasonably close to Pittsburgh and we were visiting family, that's why we chose it. When we pulled up we stopped at a gate to enter the park, we were told to back up and go up a dirt path to the visitor sites. The seasonal sites are behind a gate and surrounded by a fence. We felt like an afterthought and an outcast. For the weekend it was us and maybe 4 other RV's, but they parked us all close together. The sites are laid out oddly, the electric and water hookups are on the opposite than most other campgrounds and we had to run the hoses across our site. The sewer hookup for the next site was super close to our picnic table and fire pit (like within 6 feet) The sites were very narrow, we could not fit out truck in front of the site, even perpendicular. The neighbors had a fire and they were so close I was afraid of our tanks exploding. We asked permission to receive mail there and they allowed it but didn't notify us that anything arrived and seemed annoyed when we asked. The restrooms were clean, we had to walk quite a ways around a building or else jump the fence and walk through the seasonal side. Lots of options for the area, we probably wont stay here again. Price was comparable to others. - sbrigga315

We didn't notice any of the ruts as mentioned in other reviews. There are two speed bumps, one on the entrance road and one at the entrance to the transient camp area. Neither are unusual. Our site was very nice with plenty of room. It slopped back to front and right to left, but we were able to level with out too much effort. Good cable TV. Bad WiFi. Given the overall lack of full hook-up sites in the general area, this campground is a gem. We would return if in the area. - 15243

The Pittsburgh area has very few CGs around, and this is one of the better ones we have used. The CG is overwhelmingly permanents, and the transient section is separate (about 20 sites). The sites were 100% grass, which is great when the weather cooperates. Our site, and many others had very deep depressions where the camper sits. It is basically a hole, I suppose from years of camping, without any attempt to fill and level the site. If you had a lot of rain, you would be sitting over top of a giant puddle under your unit. The hole was so deep that our bottom step nearly rested on the ground. But, we had good weather, and the abundant grassy areas made for great play areas and sites for pick up games for the kids. And when outside, the grass was soft under your feet, so going barefoot was very comfortable. The road into the CG and to the site had numerous and very tall speed bumps. Use care, as there are numerous indications of hitches, etc. hitting them. There is a very tight turn at the top of the hill, and having forgotten to take off my sway bars, one popped out and I drug it for several yards without realizing it. Not necessarily the CGs fault: just a warning. The office staff was courteous, but not overly friendly. The site shares an electrical post with the adjoining site, and the folks there had taken the only 30A outlet. The office supplied me with an adapter pigtail, no questions asked. Laundry and bath houses are all in the permanent section, which has a coded gate. You have to drive there if you have a load of laundry as it is too hilly and far away to walk. If no one is in the office, you are out of luck getting through the gate. Grounds were well tended, and pool looked clean. Definitely an older CG, but it seemed to be adequately cared for. We would use this CG again. - begerter

On PA-51, about 6 miles from the Ohio border. Turn east/south at the blinking yellow light onto OH-168, Salem Church Road then about .8 mile, turn right on Hodgson Road, then .8 mile and left into the CG.
Weekly rate $170; monthly $380. No credit/debit cards accepted; cash or check only. All electric is metered, even for daily visits ($0.11/kwh). One employee who is very friendly and helpful. Municipal access roads are sufficiently wide, maintained, asphalt but lots of ups-and-downs. Watch for one low-hanging tree on Hodgson Road. Internal roads are gravel, somewhat narrow with no overhead obstacles.
A variety of sites which are grass/gravel with mowed lawns and occasional tall trees. A few sites have patios; most have picnic tables. All sites are FHU-20/30/50, level with pedestal at the road end of the sites. Sufficient clear sky for satellite antennas. No cable TV. Fires permitted in fire rings. Well water has low, but adequate pressure and okay taste. No office store. No propane sales. Restrooms/showers are old but clean with newer fixtures but minimal privacy (score "B-"). No laundry.
Spacious, grass playground. Very nice, unheated, salt water pool. No spa. Free Wi-Fi but internet access is weak and unreliable. Verizon coverage is dismal at "½ bar." CG is in the country and is very quiet. No recycling bins. - StephenK

We stayed for 4 days visiting relatives in the area. The campground was nice and neat. We got a shaded, pull-in site. Many of the RVs seemed as if they were seasonals and were empty. Check in was fine and the campground was easy to find and access. They only accept cash or checks, so happy we remembered the checkbook. There was a nice playground; the kids enjoyed that quite a bit. The owner lady knocked on our RV to remind us that the pool was open, but we were busy with relatives. It was nice she thought about the kids. At checkout (we were trying to leave at 9am), no one was in the office or adjacent trailer so had to call the owner's phone. Wanted someone to come read the electricity meter, but could not get a hold of anyone. Finally, at departure time, as we were pulling out, we ran into one of the attendants and he read the meter. There was no delay afterall, but didn't like that I couldn't find anyone initially. (Only $9 for 4 days for electricity.) Overall, good experience & would stay here again when visiting family in Beaver.
Initially, I was concerned about the other negative reviews and questioned booking here, but turned out fine and it was convenient. There were RULES posted rather excessively (no rugs or anything on grass, etc) around the campground, but we experienced no issues or tongue-lashings; think they just take pride in their campground. - Camping with kiddos

We stayed here with a travel trailer and a tent. They are very unorganized and kept moving us to different sites. They don't want anything on their grass. The owners are not friendly and yelled when our truck went in the grass to make the turn into our spot. They have a swing on the playground that is apparently for handicapped kids although there is nothing indicating that. I was swinging my daughter in it and the owner came over and told me to get her out because he paid too much money for her to ruin it. They charge you extra for your electric usage on top of your nightly fee. There are no activities except bingo and there is one bath house at the front of the park. I would not camp there again. - beaglefamily24

We stayed here while working in Shippingport, PA. The campground is geared more toward traveling contract workers. There are no facilities (restrooms, etc.) and the owners run the park from their home. The owners were extremely friendly and the area was very nice. We will come back again! - lapo99

We only stopped over night on the way home from western Ohio, but we will definitely be back to explorer the park and the area. Our route was along the Ohio Scenic Byway and was an pleasant end to an otherwise horrendous drive along Rt 71.
The park is off the beaten path and being a Sunday night, there were plenty of open site, but only a few big rig friendly. The site we were in was 30 A and no water, but there is a water fill and dump station near the park office. I saw the pool but did not go for a swim, but again will plan on taking full advantage of the amenities another trip.
The staff was very friendly and even offered to escort me back to my site. It's heavily shaded so no satellite but over air was acceptable. - htowners

Gorgeous state campground to top of hill. Large wooded sites. Great trails for hiking and ponds for fishing. If your looking for a relaxing camping trip with quiet nature all around you then this is the place. Campground has a well laid out dump and water fill station, small campground store. At the entrance of the campground which is at the bottom of the hill is a large pool with a water slide and jumping board. Also they serve hot food at the pool area. Local sheriff makes routine patrols thru campground. - mdcamping

This campground is a little tight for big rigs. There are activities and the camp store is nice. Laundry was clean. Arcade machines did not work well. Dog park is nice however it requires a short hike through a pine forest. Nice park otherwise. - Texas Gals

Big rigs should avoid this park. Narrow entry road off the freeway, no place to park to check in and sites are angled at 90 degrees making them difficult to get in and out of. Staff on arrival was young, unprofessional and not helpful at all. It is in a beautiful setting and would be a nice place to stay with a small unit or a tent. - Amls

Really nice park with easy interstate access but far enough away to be quiet. Super clean, well maintained and beautiful. If you have an RV 30' or shorter I recommend it. Big rigs should stay away. The sites are long enough but very narrow and to enter or exit your site you need to make a ninety degree turn onto a very narrow road. - Igotjam

We stayed at this park for the great view of the Ohio River, to visit the Fiesta dinnerware factory just up the road, and for a quick business side trip to Pittsburgh. (There are absolutely no Pittsburgh area campgrounds with decent reviews.) Like almost all the campgrounds in this area, it is mostly inhabited by quiet and well--behaved permanent or seasonal units, with the prime sites reserved for visiting RVers. Our site directly overlooked the river and the many pushboats and barges quietly passing by. The entire campground is grass, with ruts and connections to mark the sites. No problem. There may be mud when it is rainy, but we had great weather. There is no manager on site during the day, but she was here eating dinner and awaiting our late arrival. When we needed a power cord extension, she showed up promptly with one. And the next day she was free with information about good restaurants (there aren't many) and an alternate route to Pittsburgh. Like every campground in the region, there is no cable TV and no local stations available. Some sites have sewer, and there is a convenient dump station. There is a very small playground, but in general I would say the campground is not designed for kids. We found it to be very quiet and peaceful. This could be because school is in session - we make a point of traveling when that is the case. There is plenty of room for large rigs. - pompomgirl

The campground is right on the Ohio River and there is a boat launch and docks. The road in is gravel and you cross a train track (train doesn't run at night). Check in was fast and friendly. The majority of sites are full time and well kept up. Our site was a pull through but just barely. We were right next to the bathhouse and pulling out was a bit tricky. We were able to leave the tow-dolly attached. Site was all grass and level. We were parallel to the river so sitting outside was nice and peaceful. We had full hook-ups with 50 amp The water connection was a little far, about 30 feet. Water pressure was good. WiFi wasn't good the first night but they put in a new system the next day and it worked great. We stayed June 7-9, 2017. We paid $39.22 a night with no discount. Across the river is East Liverpool, with shopping and restaurants. Just down the road from the campground is the Laughlin China Company where Fiestaware is made. They have a retail store and be sure to check out their scratch and dent room - great prices. - BarrettsHappyTrails

At the very northern tip of West Virginia, Kennedy Marina & Campground has a generally nice setting (no shade at all, though), a lot of Canada geese were hanging around, and we got a nice grass site right by the river. Most of the other campers -- workers and seasonal, probably -- didn't have it as good, with many of them close together and at least half probably couldn't see the river. We have a tiny motorhome but tow a car, so it's always nice to get a pull-through (esp. for a 1-nighter) so we didn't have to disconnect the car. Our one night stay was very nice, with a view of the river and the trees and hillside of Ohio on the other side. Hookups were good and though we had to share water with another site, it was not a problem. WiFi was too weak to be useful, but we got a good Verizon 4G signal for our MiFi. The bathroom and laundry were dated, but mostly clean; the bathroom did not have a shower. They are closed on Monday, but we called and they came fairly quick and were very plesant. - RobtL
