7 Parks near Blairsville, Pennsylvania
Sep 2010 - $8.00
We camped here while on a job that lasted a couple months. The campground is perfect if you want a scenic place to park and not a lot around you. It is located within a reasonable distance from major cities that can meet all your needs. Its just a peaceful place to park a while and enjoy nature. It is located high upon a mountain so kind of hard to pull in big rigs, but our 36' fifth wheel fit just fine. Enjoyed the stay. - 3paynes

This is a quiet peaceful campground. Sites are secluded and mostly private. The campground host was pleasant and helpful. The worst part to this campground is how far away the swimming area and playground is to the campsites. There is a small store at the beach that sells ice-cream and food but it wasn't open. We would stay here again. - Grant7890

We had a nice time staying here. We chose the hillside area(which is pet friendly). Our campsite was occupied when we arrived. We had to wait until after the check-out time. Unfortunately the check-in time is at that same time. Perhaps the park should change these 2 times by at least an hour. Lots of mud made set up a bit gooey. The bathroom facility was clean and centrally located. The temperature inside was extremely hot! The ceiling heat should have been shut off, or the thermostat adjusted. This heat made you want to run from the building and get back outside to the fresh cool spring air! During my 3rd shower, one evening, the automatic timer for the lights shut off. Pitch black- walking from the shower stall all lathered in soap to the opposite side of the bathroom to wave my arms to turn the lights back on! We all took a long nature walk, and also walked through the lakeside camping area (which is not pet friendly). While on that walk, my husband used the restroom in that section. He told me to go in and check out the women's side... WOW! what a difference. Completely different experience! This building has ceramic tile floors vs. the concrete floor in the hillside camping. The lakeside toilet/shower building and area is more beautiful than ANY campground shower facility that I have seen to date! The lake and surrounding areas/trails are very nice. Overall I am giving the campground an 8 on a scale of 10. We loved camping on a Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday. Would definitely return. Just wish pets were allowed in the lakeside area. Our black lab had a great time anyway, but a lakeside view and that restroom upgrade would be worth it for all of us! - patti&charlie

Incredible place to camp. Easy, convenient, restful. I could go on. Plenty of fish, if you like fishing. Lot's of different types of birds all over the park. Possibly the best place I ever stayed. Compares well to Promised Land State Park. Pittsburgh has something great located in Derry. - Fishsammich

Overall this is a fairly nice campground. We were parked next to a stream that seemed very tame until the monsoon hit. I watched it continue to rise and eventually called the manager (not on site). She said that it would have to rain for 2-3 more days before the stream overran. It was only at one foot from the top so I have doubts about that. Rain stopped two hours later and all was well. Trees were a problem with satellite, and cell was questionable. Rate reflects Passport America. - keydet

No Verizon phone or Data in our site (#8). Nice owners. Good electricity. One channel over the air (NBC). Level site. WiFi being installed, but not here when we were. Convenient to local attractions (Shanksville, Johnstown, etc.). About 50 miles from Pittsburgh. Extra charge if you use the dump station on your way in. We stayed 6 days. Cash only for PA (but half the above price). - earlymun

If we had been prepared to "camp" this would have been great - we weren't so didn't work out very well for us, no fault of the owners. This is an exceptionally beautiful spot with a pay lake for fishing. No real amenities at this time, other than ones you would expect from a camp. Very nice owners. We would stay here again if prepared for no connectivity and had groceries, etc. - Vista Queen

Campground is mostly populated by annual visitors. However the grounds are very well maintained. Mostly grass sites with water and electric. We stayed for two days at mid week. It was very quiet with weekenders starting to arrive on Thursday. Verizon cell signal was strong. There are some shade trees but was still able to get a satellite shot. We did not use the showers, however they appeared very clean. The dump station is easy to navigate.
We would definitely stay here again. - rjohnso3a

Nice park for an overnight stay but I would not like it for an extended stay. We were told that they did not have full hook ups - water and electric only. I did not like the lay out of the park requiring an angled back in. Many of the seasonal sites seemed to be overly crowded. We did not stay to experience the recreational amenities of the park. The owner's were enthusiastic, friendly and helpful. - Dewey Smith

First, this is a Passport America park and they give you half off Monday-Thursday. They also give Good Sam discount everyday! The new owners took over March 20th, 2015 and are working to make this excellent park even better. They are a pet friendly park. They are starting a pet service Monday-Thursday where they will walk your dogs (if friendly). This is a lush beautiful park with an outer ring of back-ins and an inner ring of perpendicular to road spaces. The inner lawn has a beautiful pavilion with a large amount of picnic tables under. This set up would be ideal for an RV club or Dutch oven club gathering, or family reunion. This park has a small lake with paddle boats ($1 per 1/2 hour). They can be very proud of their new investment. After all the discounts for a week here was $174. Every site has garbage can. - DigMyPast

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

We stayed here for only one night to use the electricity for air conditioning. It is an older campground with lots of old growth trees. The clerk at the front desk was pleasant and took us to our site, something a lot of campgrounds do not do. My only complaint was that it was rather hilly to get to our site. The pad was absolutely level but the area around it was bumpy and full of roots, so I tripped a few times when outside. I would stay here and would recommend it to others. - travelinggramma63

This is a small and older campground located just West of the Pa. Turnpike Donegal exit on Rt. 31. It is far enough away from the highway that you barely notice it. The owner takes you to your site and helps you get in. We were camping with 3 other families on Mothers day weekend and were the only ones there. The owner let us use the pavilion and game room as the weather was cold and rainy. The permanent sites are located above and away from the overnight sites. The bath house is clean but dated and in need of upgrades. It is very quiet and peaceful here. There is a pool and a small game room / arcade with a pool table and ping pong table, attached to an outdoor pavilion. Wifi was not so good We will stay here again. - Motorman173

All reservation and check-in process for our overnight stop were very smooth and as described. We received a pull-through site with 30 amp electric, water, and cable as requested. The hill up to the sites is pretty steep, and turns are a little tight, but we made it into the site without any incidents. We were guided right to the site by the owner. The site we were put in was quite narrow (I would guess 11 feet), and was on a slight incline and also a right to left hill. Our jacks were just barely enough to get us level.. The campground, as previously mentioned, is very easy to access from the turnpike, but not too noisy for us considering the proximity. We did not use any of the facilities so I can't give feedback on them. We would consider staying here again, but probably would request another/better site. - ShawnK

Disappointed with this campground! Sites were muddy. There was no cable despite the Woodall listing. The bathrooms were dirty. Would not stay here again! - Ehux123

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
