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

Arrived and was placed in what I would describe as a gravel mud bog. Had to put truck in 4-wheel drive to place unit. Offered wifi and cable on web site, but were told upon arrival that both were additional cost options with no digital TV in area, website was quite misleading... Sewer dump at site was wide open, no cover and the first 2 inches were shattered, just a hole in the ground. Park was a typical "trailer park", NOT AN RV PARK!!! Probably the worst "RV" park we have ever stayed in. We would park in a parking lot before staying there again. Only bright side, manager and staff were friendly and courteous. But that only goes so far when you pull in after a days drive and suddenly you get the ! factor. If you even think about staying here, KEEP DRIVING !!! - Scenic Cruiser

This is a very large RV trailer park. Not really an RV Resort. Mostly long term. Lots of really nice trailers/Rv's on long term lots. Lots of Not so nice ones also. Very nice manager lady. They took us to the far side and was a dump out there. Lumpy bumpy very uneven grass site. Several trailers for sale, not kept up. The trailer next to where they put up looked like no one had been there in months. We tried to take a nice long walk and were chased by 2 dogs. Owner of dog just laughed and called their dogs back. Saw minimum of 6 dogs off leases. Will we stay here again? Nope. - Land Yacht Ahoy

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

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

In the woods! Quiet rustic park with lots of trees so choose your site carefully if you want satallite access. Our site #64 gave us satallite access. Sites are gravel with a picnic table and a fire pit on grass. Electric and water back-in only, no pull-thrus. There is a dump station. The park is somewhat hilly and some of the roadways are not as MH friendly as others. They have a pool, minature golf, tennis courts, shuffleboard courts and bocci courts. No wi-fi or cable.Located about 55 miles from Pittsburg. The $10 rate was based on our RPI menbership. - Michael Kibler

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

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

We spent 3-nights here at the end of Sept, 2016. It's a large state park that's very forested and pretty. We had reserved a lovely Full-Hookup site at the top of the hill bordering a huge grassy field. But try as we might we could not get level - front to back or side to side. Others that arrived at the same time had similar issues so we all worked together to find other available camp sites to get level.
When we arrived on a Sunday all the park offices and check-in shack were closed.
The bathrooms here are older cinder block buildings that had been through some rough rains recently with lots of dirt and water deposited inside.
So, to us this State Park is a mixed bag. It is very pretty and in a nice part of Pennsylvania and seems to be a very popular park for people living nearby. Our experience wasn't that pleasant.
As a plus, the Flight 93 memorial is only about 30-mins away and is a must see. - Creativepart

We stopped here without a reservation. It happened to be a weekend when they were having a Bluegrass festival. This campground has a loop for those traveling with pets. We were fortunate to get the last site available. It wasn't the best site. It was not level. It was grass and only had electric.
This state park is the most dog friendly park we have been in. You could walk your dog on many acres of park land and even down to the water in some areas. The pet loop has a very large area in the center to walk you dog also.
They have two dump stations and drinking water available at that location. The park appeared to be very well maintained.
The park is family oriented with a playground, beach, volleyball, kayak rentals, fishing picnic areas and more.
The day we were to leave it was raining. I was unable to pull our trailer off the site as the wheels spun on the wet grass. Park rangers came and hooked onto my truck and assisted me in pulling out. Great service. - petendoll

We really enjoyed this park. We were 4 adults and 2 kids and 2 dogs, and had plenty of space. It's a no-alcohol park but from what we could see people kept it discreet. Very quiet at night, even in the dog loop! There is a small lake which is very scenic - not super great for swimming, but clean enough. Also lots of trails to enjoy. We were very impressed with the bathrooms BUT, most of all, the snack bar at the lake's swimming area -- Quinoa salad! Veggie tacos! Such an amazing variety and quality for a snack shack! Overall we had a great time here. Next time we'll bring bikes, and floats/kayaks for the lake. - RSchamess

We came to this park during the last week they were open for the season, actually we left the day they closed. Everything was pretty much closed down but we rarely use these services anyway so we were not affected.
Our site was way in the back and very quiet but no one else was around us. The area around the site was very large and completly covered in grass, a really nice setting. The only problem we had was trying to get the camper entirely on the gravel, it was kind of narrow but still a nice site.
We did have a problem with the cable hookup but it was fixed by maintenance within 15 minutes. Great service.
You could see that a vast majority of the sites are full timers because of all the decks and other fixtures around the campers plus the camper storage area was packed. We would surely stay again. - John Borajkiewicz

The site was very easy to access and was large enough for our 40' RV pulling a 16' bike trailer. Nice grassy area between campers with some shade trees. If you like to fish, they have 3 ponds for that plus paddle boats to rent. It was very clean and lots of staff on hand if you needed anything. The wifi was pretty scketchy though. - AudiG

We love this park, but let me "for-warn" you - come on a week day! Seems that this is a major summer vacation stay for the locals! What they seem to do is park their 5th wheels here from June thru Labor Day/Oct. then just come and use them over the weekends! From Mon-Thur it's as quiet as can be, your practically the only one around... then slowly starting on Thur people start showing up, and by Fri night, almost every space around here is jam packed (even the empty ones, all the tent spaces, everything, and this place is jumping! Wow! Kids, fires, people visiting people, it's a hoot! We couldn't get over the change! It's not loud, just lively. Then come Sunday afternoon, and people start slowly packing up again, and by Monday, dead again. Amazing. The area over by the pool, are "full-timers" who are here all the time, but across the ponds, are the "rest of us". The place is lovely. Good WiFi (secure), good cable, close to town and forests, just a great place to be. Only a half hour, maybe 40 min. to Pittsburgh. - MarieB

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

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

We where staying there with friends who had a motor home. When they pulled in sunk in the mud. Was told the sites had been redone. Obviously had not been packed down well and was all gravel. When made reservations was told pets welcome. When staff knocked on my door acted like my dog was going to attack. It is a lab and wouldn't hurt anyone. He barked when they knocked on the door. Was treated very poorly by staff. We intended to stay 3 nights, we stayed 1. - Theresa L

We left as soon as we saw what the campground was. Manager was going to charge us by the foot since we were over 26 feet but since we had already been quoted a price, the manager stuck with the original price. This is no place for a big rig or RV. I wouldn't recommend anything over 30 FOOT - the sites are shallow and is more set up for seasonal than for weekend camping. The transient spaces are not well defined or well kept. We couldn't find a decent place to set up so we had to scramble and find a near by state park and didn't stay. The owner charged us for a full night anyway even though we didn't stay and we couldn't fit the way we needed. The only good thing about the whole experience is that the lady was nice. Although charging us a full night was a little bit much. I'd say $10 would have been sufficient for the trouble. Again this is not for large RVs and is very tight - visual surroundings not very stimulating either. WE DID NOT STAY. - receveur

This is a very nice campground. Mostly permanent campers with a few passing through. Over the last 2 years the campground has been cleaned up and updated by the owners. The Management has really step up to the plate to get away from the bad reputation this campground had and is doing a great job of cleaning it out and up! Many new activities have been offered and campground also offer co-pay for lots of out of park activities which is wonderful if you have children! There are a lot of negative comments on other sites that are years old. I can tell you as of September 2015 this place has really pulled it together! - Turtleman

We've camped here in the past and this year, we see a great improvement in the campground and staff. They are cleaner, friendly, more helpful. The kids activity are great! The pool is clean and the great area in primative where you can fish. The golf carts are not as bad as it use to be. I recommend this campground! - Turtleman

We came here on a whim. It wasn't impressive. But I think a lot of the other negative comments on here might be overblown. The check-in lady acted very friendly and professionally to me. My site was clean. I don't remember being any problems anywhere. - jamesontonya

Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The view was beautiful and my husband enjoyed the fishing. My fur babies where very happy in the dog park. It was great to be able to have a place to take them off the leash and run. - Theresa L
