As a retired veteran I was horrified at the prejudice shown by the owner. He was nice until he physically saw myself and my family. If you are not elderly or your typical white family I would skip this park. We stayed 3 days and during that time it was hit or miss whether the pool and "resort" services were open for use, instead we got a large dose of prejudice, and disrespectful stares and behavior. They definitely charge resort prices and offer a lack of resort services. At least I know I served my country so the owner can practice his prejudice openly.... You're welcome sir! - Chris Harp

I stayed for a week in the off season, so the nightly rate I paid reflects that. I didn't use the pool so can't comment on that. Overall, I had a great stay at this park.
My ideal park would have more shade, be more natural, and have more privacy. But even so, this place had just about everything I could need. I enjoyed the excellent wifi, the level gravel sites, with grassy areas around the picnic table, the peacefulness, the cleanliness, and the wonderful service by the owners. I also liked the security, with codes needed to access the RV area and the bath house.
The deep dip in the driveway mentioned by other reviewers seems to have been corrected - there is clearly new asphault, making the area more level. The park was easy to find, with very visible signage, in a great location just off I-70. - CamperChris4

This is an unusual place: a large water park in conjunction with an RV park. I used the RV park just for an overnight in the course of a long road trip. I did not use the water park so cannot comment on it (though it looked inviting!).
The RV area is a large, flat terrace above the water park with a pretty river flowing below. While in a beautiful setting, the campground area is virtually treeless and nondescript. It is a good place for an overnight only, or to camp while enjoying the water park, but I don't see it as much more than that ... and $45 is a little steep for an overnight. (The price including the water park is higher.) - BobbyG2016

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

Moderately remote from Pittsburgh, near the junction of I-70 and I-76. Steep entry downhill to office and campground, with sites terraced on the uphill side of the small valley it is in. As noted, side to side leveling was a bit of an issue. Actually a pretty large CG, but most of it is occupied by long term sites - local gas/oil worker types. Many older campers, but sites were very neat and not built out like some seasonal places can be. A moderate amount of traffic in the evening and early morning as people come from/go to work. Quiet, no partiers. Grounds were well maintained. WiFi on a par with most places, barely useable. - Flapper

The KOA in Ruffs Dale left a lot to be desired. We were in site 17 which was not long with the attached tow. The electric was terrible with both legs being poor. At one point, with the air on, we were getting only 107 amps. Turned on the generator and ran everything full blast to cool us down. Our call to the office about the electric went unanswered for about 4 hours. The breaker was replaced but it didn't help. We were able to use the AC overnite when the overall campground usage was diminished. Each site is a gravel driveway with some grass in between and a picnic table. It's in a valley so that intensified the already hot day. There is an algae laden pond, pool, bounce and playground equipment for kids. We didn't even unhook until we were leaving to make it easier to exit. The Wifi was non existent and our AT&T reception limited our use of the Internet. I don't like to write bad reviews because the owners are small business people but one expects a level of service from KOAs and unfortunately this campground didn't meet expectations. - Team Asphalt

Pros Fishing pond was nice. Pool was nice. Large picnic area. Two separate dog runs, but they needed mowing. Ok for a day or two. We stayed as it was 50 minutes from Falling Water. Cons It was very difficult to level and in fact we never did get level, but just dealt with it. Park needs to re-gravel, it was very dusty as no one really followed the 5 miles per hour rule. Lots of full time people, some trashy, some very nice. - User3274

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

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

This is our go to stop over spot when heading west, great pull thru sites with full hookups and long enough to stay connected, when stopping to register it is best to stay behind the gravel road to the left that leads down to the sites you will likely be assigned to avoid having to loop around another section of the campground. - DBLR

Nice park, clean and long sites. Used as overnight stop. Easy access if you pay attention to signs. We did not use cable, but had excellent satellite coverage. Also had decent Verizon coverage (2 bars). Roads were wide and campsite access was easyto get into and out of. I would stop here again and would use this as a base camp to explore the area. - Tomandgloria

We had a pull-through in the lower section (nearest the street) that was mostly level front-to-back and side-to-side. It was more than long enough for our 40 ft motor home and toad. There were no trees tall enough to block our satellite dish. Poor Verizon signal (1 bar, 3G) and campground wifi, although not really all that fast, was usually better than what I could get off my Verizon hotspot. Campground was clean and well-maintained. Office staff were friendly and helpful. - arpijay

We've been at Firehouse RV Campground for almost 3 weeks now and will be here for a few more months. (Working temporarily in the area). Lots could use leveling, but overall not terrible. Great water. There is a bathroom/shower house with card/keys to get in. Also laundry facility. (did not use either of these). My only complaint is the cell & internet service, but this is not the fault of the RV park. Service is lousy all over the area. Quite often, the RV park wifi is even better than our own Mifi. If you're looking for a "garden spot" to stay, this is not it. If you're looking for a manager on-duty to hang out with, this is not the place. This is an adequate RV park, run by a fireman. It is quiet. Sits behind the Fire Station, in between a cemetery and a funeral home, but you're not even aware of these things. Profits go to help the volunteer fire dept. I do not know the nightly rate. $460/month. A lot of longer term/temporary working people here. We have only heard the fire siren 3 or 4 times in the 3 weeks we've been here. Haven't heard a train whistle yet, just the high pitched squeal of the wheels off and on, but nothing that is bothersome. Within less than half a mile there is a small local grocery store, a post office, a small convenience store that sells both gas and diesel fuel. About 10 minutes to I-79 and Waynesburg, which has several restaurants and a Walmart. (Although the Walmart is well hidden and not found when looking on their web page for local Walmarts). Pittsburgh is about 50 miles north. Staying here in a 41' 5th wheel, with 2 vehicles. - Marty O

Never again! Terrible. In the rear parking lot of a firehouse. Siren went off about once an hour all night. Nearby train whistle all day and all night. To get there, the roads were narrow and twisty. Lots of workers (linemen, oil workers, etc.) with their families. Semi-permanent. - mrpeepers

The campground is about eight miles from I-79 through the rolling hills of PA, not a problem getting there but it is not your typical highway campground. The park is located behind and run by the local volunteer fire department and staying here helps support the fire department. Our site was near the end of the lot and slopped some. The loose gravel. slope, and recent rains made it difficult to level but we made do, as it was simply an overnight stop for us. Some sites are paved and more level, there are even some pull-thru sites. There are no facilities or activities as this is a simply an area to park your RV. Many of the sites had long-term residents who are working in the area. - Dave Hole

We stayed here last minute on a Saturday night. The sites were tiers on a hill, gravel, and the pad itself was fairly level, but it was very steep between our site and the next, I didn't even have to put my step out, and the provided picnic table was on a serious list due to the steepness. Everything worked well, all hookups were convenient and in good order. Campground is laid out well, though the road to it is a bit winding, as is the case in most of the area there, and it is still right next to a highway interchange, so a good deal of road noise day and night. Bath house, office and laundry were down the hill in a classic KOA a-frame building with a nice looking pool next to it. Bath house was clean and in good working order, though it needed better ventilation. Staff was very friendly and checked me into a site even though I had arrived hours before check-in time. Good for an overnight. - Cyclonic

The facility was almost empty both nights we were there, but the owner was unwilling to make a change to an adjacent site as we requested when making the reservation back in November 2016. The owner was rather unpleasant when we checked in. One of the employees, driving the riding lawn mower, damaged our coach while mowing the lawn adjacent to our coach. It took several hours for the owner to give us the insurance information we requested. - Raemey

The road into the park is narrow and twisting and steep. We wondered if there really was an RV park at the end. Two of the turns inside the park were tight for our 28-ft travel trailer. Can't imagine coming in anything longer. We arrived about noon. The office was closed but our reservation was noted and a site assigned. However, that site was occupied. We finally choose another open site. When the office opened we were told that site was only available for one night, not the 2 we planned to stay, and we would have to move. We decided to leave the next morning. Didn't really mind the office being closed in the middle of the day but since it was, assigning us to a spot that wasn't open at 11 am when the office closed was inexcusable. The site wasn't very level and many others were worse. The sites are narrow. This park is certainly not what we expect of a KOA. - John and Carol

Don't believe previous reviews - nice little campground - safe & clean.
Sadly some people who do reviews don't understand small campgrounds CAN'T have people onsite all the time. This campground only has a couple people a day (at most) coming or leaving so there just wouldn't be any logic to owners being around all the time.
It is a small campground and it is owned by a husband & wife with two kids in college. Owners also have to work during the week so Monday through Friday it is likely you will not see them. There is a drop box for your payment, bathrooms & pool were very clean. Sites were mowed and well maintained but if you are their during the week it is highly unlikely you will see the owners or be able to talk with them in person.
However, both weekends we were their the owners were working ALL day to make the place as nice as possible. We really enjoyed the place and talking with them.
If you are looking for a HUGE campground with hundreds of sites this is not it. But if you like a private setting that is clean and well maintained you will not be disappointed.
I wanted to post a nice review shortly after our visit but I have been extremely busy. So sorry for the delay giving this feedback! - toomanypins

This run down, side-of-road park does not deserve your business. The hostess, when she is around, is rude and totally unhelpful to a first-time visitor. We were returning to the East from an 8,000 mile trip with lots of RV parks under our belt when we picked this one from Woodall's. It does NOT deserve any rating at all. Skip it. - SilverOtter

We reserved a 50 Amp Electric, Sewer, water, pull through site for 9 days. There was nobody here to check us in and other clients told us, "She doesn’t come around much." We had no instructions as to what site to go to, so we searched for a 50 amp pedestal and backed in. The owner/manager finally showed up at 5:10 pm. She was the most unfriendly person I have ever come across. Didn’t bother to introduce herself, seemed annoyed we were paying by credit card, and the word surely would not even be accurate. The first night the main pedestal power went off 6 hours. I will say they replaced the 50 amp breaker in the morning. In the afternoon the power started cycling on and off again. Now fortunately we have the best TRC Power Surge Guard makes, so it didn’t fry my A/C or my TV. It did cause damage to my computer. The manager said, "Oh I'm out of town so there’s nothing I can do. Try moving to a different site." We are both in our 60s and I am disabled so this was not a nice experience. We did it, and the problem was worse. Now the power is cycling off every 2-3 minutes. I could read the display on my Surge Guard so I know the voltage amps coming in from the Pedestal. There is/was nothing wrong with my unit or my RV electrical system. The place smelled of sewer everywhere and trash had not been picked up in quite some time. It was a nightmare. We left 4 days early and the manager refuses to return our calls regarding a refund. - jimhoch
