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

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

Not a lot of choices in this area. This park is WAY overpriced at $45 per night. No activities here. The sites were level gravel with W/E only. Big rigs have "fun" trying to navigate the dump site through the trees. The only "facilities" here were a few portable toilets scattered about the park. The roads to the park are rough, steep, but navigable. The main driveway is dirt/gravel and a bit rough. My main gripe is their continued use of their website. It boasts a very large and modern gym on the premises, with pictures. There is no gym. The owner said someone "hacked/pirated" their website & posted the gym info with a link to redirect the user to the hackers. She said they were trying to steal her customers. Why she does not discontinue her site and start a new one is beyond me. But she now benefits from the bogus info as it would be a nice draw for customers to the campground. All fishy... - rvrrat520

We were lucky we couldn't get a site at another campground. We really enjoyed this park. It's easy in, easy out. Convenient, good utilities. The sites are all nice, with shade. We would definitely stay here again. - Mark Wittenburg

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

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

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

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

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
