8 Parks near Charleroi, Pennsylvania

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

The GPS will have you tuning before the RV park so beware. The park has a sign where the GPS is telling you to turn which tells you to go up the road another 400 feet which is helpful. RV park is tied to a small water park. RV park is vey small, maybe 30 sites, all back ins and a little tight navigating. Roads are paved and sites are level, narrow and gravel. Sites have grass and picnic tables. We got some rain one night and the left rear stabilizer jack sunk five inches into the ground. Restrooms are convenient and clean. Dumpster is way down the hill. Small uninviting pond. Quiet yet convenient to highways. Good satellite reception. - VegasVagabonds

Small and somewhat expensive, this solid campground about 45 minutes from Pittsburgh features nice, back-in sites large enough for big rigs, a massive pool and very friendly, accommodating owners. A Good Sam discount helps. A fair amount of RVs there are home to fracking workers in the area, but their sites are well maintained overall. Water pressure is solid and the sites are wide enough that you don't quite feel like you're right on top of one another. Young trees on site do not yet provide adequate shade. Campground staff allowed us to stay two hours after check-out on Labor Day. - Lancaster Camper

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

Be sure and follow the KOA signs along the road. Follow the instructions given at web site. The road to the park is very narrow, but is paved. Wi-Fi worked good and there are lots of TV channels. We had a nice long plu-thru. - gosee

We didn't hear a lot of noise but some. It's a very hilly park and spaces are somewhat level - very close to one another. We only stayed one night. - Catsinatrailer

Site could have been more level. Overall it was a nice campground. We had a pull-through site, and did not have a toad. - CAcamping

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 were traveling at night and needed a place to stay and shower, we stopped at the PA Welcome center on I-70 and grabbed some brochures. They were the only answer we got (at 9pm) so we headed there. We were so happy we ended up staying 2 extra nights. The fireman who manages the place is incredibly friendly and extremely helpful. He met us at the front at 11pm and took us back and let us pick a spot. He mentioned that if they had been full, he would have parked me in front of the firehouse and ran power and electric to my trailer. The bathrooms and shower house was pretty new and very clean. They had laundry facilities but we didn't use them as we only stayed for a few nights. Sites were level, water pressure was great and it was so quiet and comfortable there it was a treat. The only potential down side to note is we had no phone service back there, and had to go out to the road to make or receive calls. We will definitely stay here again, they have a monthly rate that is extremely reasonable. - The Bells 412

Great experience. Staff was helpful at all times. We stayed for a week in July and had a blast. Kids loved the jumping pillow and play area. Pool was broke first day, but they quickly had a company out to repair it so the kids were able to use it the rest of the week. Fishing was even good in their pond. We will be back! - krp2nite

Sites are not level, not even close. After bending my rear jack and tripping the hydraulic breaker I moved to another site. Managed to get almost level and found the dump connection a foot up a hill from my dump outlet, would not drain. Poor cable. Shade is good and park is scenic but needs some site work. Worth about $12, not $45. - Marathon dan

Very nice KOA. Playground, jumping pillow, fishing lake, etc. The campground is a bit hilly. The site was not level side to side, so I had to use the leveling blocks. But it was otherwise very nice. Spacious. Good picnic table and fire pit. The bath house was close by and it was clean. It was a bit rustic, but it was very suitable. We stayed there for one night on the way back from a two week trip, but we would stay here longer if we came through this way again. Its a very nice campground. The staff was incredible friendly. They had a pirates weekend, so the staff was all in costume. They had an ice cream social the night we were there, which was very nice. Good place to stay. - Brad K

The last day of our stay we pulled out of our spot at check out time, noon, but they wouldn't let us use any of the facilities after check out time, unless we paid for another day, which was $58. Completely unaccommodating!
Also, trains come through about every 30 minutes all day and night. Very loud, and kept us awake. - Two Kids and a Camper

We camp here at least once a year because it is nearby. This was our first camping trip of the year. The kids enjoy the playing in the river and fishing. We stay on the premium sites when available. They're located right on the water. There is a nice bike trail as well that goes past the historical coke ovens and the planned activities for kids are really nice. When we were there this time they made nature bookmarks with the items they found on their walk. Another popular spot is the pool. It is well kept and clean. I would recommend this campground for a nice get-away! - Frinny

This is our first visit to this park since 2010, before it was a KOA. The owners have done a wonderful job improving the campground. The sites are close to level and some back up right to the Yough river. (Nice for fishing in the morning.) The services along the river sites appear to all have been redone and have lights in the pedestals (nice feature). Some of the sites are a bit close, but that is to be expected from a KOA. The camp store was a bit sparse given it's size, but it is the beginning of the season. The roads in the campground are narrow and a bit tight, but not the worst I've seen. The CSX rail line is across the river, so if you like train noise, good, if not, bring earplugs for night. Overall, very nice campground and I would return here. - HP_Happy_Campers

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

This is our go to, stop over spot in the area. A short drive from the highway and set so there is no noise from the highway. Nice long pull thru, but had to unhook to level front to rear. - DBLR

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

This is a nice local campground. Owners are newer and are really trying to keep up the campground. The bathroom does have bugs in the corners, but overall they are clean. Pool is very nice, and the playgrounds are close to sites. We like this campground a lot. - darjen
