28 RV Parks near Confluence, Pennsylvania

Very convenient to the Allegheny Passage bikeway. You can access the bikeway directly from the campground. The sites are not as large as the typical COE campground and are crowded into a small area next to the dam. Electric is the only hookup available and on relatively few sites. - nospam8160

Spacious site with partial shade, picnic table and fire ring, electric only, water spigots throughout park to fill freshwater tank. Very close (walking distance) to the small town of Confluence. Park is located directly on the Youghiogheny River, popular with anglers. Verizon and AT&T both worked with fair signal. No over the air TV signal. - don_church

Do NOT take exit 29 off of I-68 in West Virginia, or 281 north to the campground. Very narrow and winding roads with steep grades. Park has paved/gravel roads and gravel sites that are wide with a lot of room between sites. Campground is next to river. Water and power was good, weak to no cell (AT&T). We would stay here again. - kmgulf

The campground is in steep hill country, which required some adjustments in driving by our OH flatlander group. The short piece of Tub Run Road is quite rough, but the campground itself is smoothly paved. It is in a wooded valley on a bay of the lake formed by the Youghiogheny River Dam and is quit, scenic and peaceful. We had a group of 8, with two trailers and a small RV- nothing over 30 feet, although we saw larger rigs there. Our three sites were large, level gravel pads with electric and water and partial shade. This was typical of all sites, as the grassy campground is liberally spotted with mature trees. Our sites were in the lakeview area, so they overlooked the lakeside row but, since the sites are terraced, we had a great view of the beach and lake. The shower house was close, very clean and the temperature was great. The widely known whitewater rafting company Laurel Highlands just began running this former Corps of Engineers campground this year. We found the staff friendly, helpful and to very attentive and available throughout our three night stay. We rented fully equipped kayaks for two hours for $22.00 and explored the bay. - Nemacarol

My family frequents Tub Run every year since I was 5 yrs old (now 36). It is extremely economical, and the campground attendants are fantastic. If you are looking for a relaxing getaway this is the place. There are no weekend activities for the kids or general store to buy tons of candy and junk you don't need, so if you have little ones, bring items to keep them occupied. The roads within the campsite are all paved, big bonus for my family. However, the road getting to the campground is rough terrain. Has its own private boat launch, and the inlet to Yough lake is your own little cove! There is a swimming area with a sandy beach. A large open field on the lakeside is great for kite flying or Frisbee. Wish the lakeside had electric hookups. If it did I would have given this place a 10. The kids playground area was removed a few years back and has yet to be reconstructed. Sites are mostly level and very large. Accommodated the 35 foot trailer with 2 slides no problem. Cell phone service is hard to come by, but dependent on where you are at in the campground, you may get a little service. Park rangers patrol frequently to ensure order and safety. Shower temp could be better. If you are the only one in the shower section, expect a shot of cold water at first, then it warms up. There is a little spillway from the creek side that the kids love to ride their bicycles through and catch crawfish. Getting to Tub Run can be an adventure traveling up the summit. Rt 40 is up and down hills; make sure you got good brakes and a good truck for towing! - 2beabeancounter

Great park, part of Army Corp parks. About half the sites are aimed at tent campers. Most sites have partial shade. Road to the campground is rough and the main roads in the area are very hilly so you will need to take your time. Sites are gravel and fairly level. Many have fire ring and picnic table. Some sites can only handle RV of 35' or smaller. We had no problems with our Class C. We have stayed at this park twice. Reservations on www.recreation.gov . Senior Pass discount is 50% so only $11 a night. - Tireman9

Scarlett Knob Campground is perfect place for tent camping. Its pretty close to town (6 min car ride) and short drive to all the shenanigans at Ohiopyle. We took our 28' travel trailer to a "pull-through" RV site with 20 amp and water on site. Space is narrow and VERY hard to navigate. The site surface is fairly level. I would not suggest taking a camper over 28' to this campground. I had to do a 3 point turn to get into the site and while leaving I needed 3 spotters to help me back out and up a pretty steep hill. If it would have rained I don't believe I would have gotten out. This place is awesome for TENT CAMPING. All the tent sites are pretty secluded and nestled into the woods. Each has fire rings and ample parking. They also have various size sites for larger groups. There was a small store that had some basic essentials and they served coffee in the mornings ($1.50)! We met the owners' son one evening and he was just walking around checking on everyone and making sure the MIDNIGHT quiet time rule was being enforced and no one had their radios volume loud. Would recommend and go back , but only in a tent. - Wheelingfeeling

Even though this campground was recommended by the staff at nearby Fallingwater, this was perhaps the worst campground we've ever stayed in. It is potentially gorgeous because of the secluded woods, but it seems that no maintenance has been done for years, not months. We got one of only two sites that could accommodate a 30' trailer. It is, however, very quiet because so few people are there. Be sure you have 4 wheel drive if you decide to stay here, in case it rains. You'll need it. The roads are barely passable. There hasn't been any gravel on the roads in a long time. - pegasus

This is my second stay and it was a horrible experience. Paying $190 for 1 site for 2 nights, you expect it to be in good shape, but the campground was littered with broken glass and garbage. One port-o-john to accommodate up to 80 campers. When we checked out an hour past the 11AM departure time, they wanted to charge us $90 for the extra hour. When I said I wouldn't pay they said "I wasn't man enough to pay" and "Don't come back." Needless to say that won't be an issue. Don't stay here...you'll regret it. - JDK

This is a large campground with some electric only sites and many are not level. We picked a level site (140), the only level site out of the 30+ choices we were given, so be careful when making reservations. The other thing to watch for is that there are only a percentage of sites that allow pets. Showers were okay, except that the shower heads were only five feet high! I kept hitting my head on it and had to get under it to wash my hair. When we left the next day, the potable water was right next to the dump station and leaked so badly that no water actually filled our tank. We alerted a park employee that this was very unsafe due to possible contamination of the potable water supply and he said he'd make a note of it and drove away. We found another water spigot at the bathhouse up the road (most spigots in this park do not have a hose end on them so you can hook up your hose). Verizon signal was good, no chance of satellite at most sites since they are heavily wooded. - Pinkflamingo71

This is a busy state park, you need to fill you water tanks and dump you waste tanks as most state parks offer. This is our 2nd time here and its shady and muddy in places as most state parks. The one thing to know is the park is on a mountain top and it a haul up a steep paved road to get to park then drive a couple miles in. Our motor home had no issue driving in towing out truck, but others need to be aware that its a good mile straight up. Ohiopyle with all the activities are down along the river back down the mountain. We love it here. Some of the best food and things to do here. We enjoy it. White water rafting at all levels. - Ed D

Campground has lots of potential, but is not being maintained by the state of PA. Foliage is not being trimmed on the very narrow roads in the loops resulting in damage to vehicles. Voltage was suboptimal in most 30 amp sites. Bathhouses are old and in a state of disrepair. There are no water hookups at each site. Most water spigots located in the loops were broken. Quiet hours were not enforced by the camp hosts. Upon check-in, a young employee was less than cordial and treated us as if we had inconvenienced him by arriving. One of the worst state park stays we've ever had. The lack of maintenance is a shame as the property is beautiful and has much potential. - FLGirl56

This is part of the Nemacolin Resort. The rate was actually $150.00 per night, I kid you not! Beautiful grounds and sites abound. World class golf, spas, restaurants, concierge service, free transports within the resort. They even hook you up to the utilities. No bathrooms are available however. A special place for a special weekend. It was our anniversary and we'll go back next year. Not the kind of cost we'd do every weekend but it's perfect for a special occasion. Miniature golf, a zoo, paint ball, horse riding, off road driving, paddle boats and more are offered. The place is huge. - Old Guys Rule

Lots of bang for the buck if you have kids especially with all the water attractions. So much you can't do it all. We enjoyed our stay and plan to return. Tips...recommend renting a golf cart as the entire campground is sloped and some parts steep. And I'm not sure what the other reviewer experienced but golf carts weren't a nuisance at all. This was the best campground we've seen for having trees / foilage to buffer between sites. It had a real "woodsy" feel. Staff was friendly and helpful. - Sinjin79

Check in was a breeze didn't even have to get out of vehicle. Worker provided a map, rules, key card to come and go from park, and an activity schedule. Once done checking in you meet an escort that takes you to your site then assist is backing you in. (We were on a lower "standard" full hook up site.). Backing in was interesting cause of the steep hill. My TV apparently is not geared to back up pushing an RV but I did get in the spot in one shot thanks to the escort.
There is tons to do at this park if you have kids. There is something going on constantly ranging from Fire truck, train, hay type rides, dance parties, bingo where you win candy bars. (I won twice in a row left with 16 candy bars). There is snowless tubing down a hill, Gaga ball (whatever that is. We never did check it out.). Nightly outdoor movies. There is also two pools. The lower is smaller and less crowded. It even has a splash zone for the smaller kids that can't/don't swim. This is the hidden gem of the park in my opinion if want away from the crowds. The upper pool is larger and has two water slides a pretty big splash zone, a bouncy house, water balloon battle area (you have to pay for the balloons). We went to the big pool on a Thursday and it was not crowded at all. The building next to the upper pool houses the store and restaurant. We ate there on a night it rained all day. The pizza was pretty good for an RV park.
There is a lot of golf cart traffic but it did not really bother us. Cart rental is $60 dollars for 24 hrs. No thanks! We just used my truck to run to the store and to the upper water park. Park rules no traffic after 11pm. Only people I saw driving around after that were workers checking on the comfort station near us.
The lower/cheaper part of the park in more woodsy and less busy than the upper/more expensive part but the upper are pull through sites. I had to clean debris off my awning 3 times from the trees. But it did storm while there for a day and a half. - Newman252

Nice campground, beautiful water park, nice staff. What we didn't like was the noise; there were dozens of golf cart speeding around, some of them modified with loud exhaust cruising about, so bad we couldn't have a conversation under our awning without screaming at each other. Sites were not level, but not far from being level. Main road was paved, most of the others were just gravel in the new section, not small gravel but large rock chunks, so when you put your patio mat down and stepped the rock would come through it. Grass on our site wasn't mowed but not a problem. Would we go back, probably not - just too much noise. - Vhljaljr

We stopped here while traveling US Route 40 (lots of hills and views). The campground is very rural. The entrance and exit are on either sides of a private residence. When you are coming from Route 40, you will get to the entrance before you come to the exit. This is a large and lovely campground. There are quite a few seasonal campsites where decks and landscaping have been added to travel trailers. The campground is clean. The campsites are mostly level - which is a feat considering the slope of the hill that the campground is on. There are cabins and a nice swimming pool. If we were in this area, we would camp here again. - ShoreXplorers

This park is rural, and our stay (on a Monday) was very quiet. Absolutely no road noise here! The park looks well maintained. Most sites are occupied by permanent & seasonal residents, with lots of add-ons like porches, outdoor furniture etc. We have a big rig & tow & it was a little tight getting through the turns in the park, but nothing too serious. Sites are a mix of grass & gravel. The park gave us a very long pull-thru, which was actually two sites combined (but charged us for only one). WiFi was very good (we were near the office).
The only negative for us was no where to park upon check-in. We blocked the entrance gate ( which requires a code) & someone in a car had to wait behind us while we registered. - RockyMountainMama

This park is closest to Fallingwater and Kentuck Knob, and also convenient for a day trip to Shanksville, PA and the Flight 93 Memorial.
The campground is in a beautiful wooded area away from main roads. Very close to multiple outdoor recreational activities and Ohiopyle State Park. There is a security gate which you need a code for, so the area is secure. There were a fair number of regular weekenders in travel trailers, but they were very friendly and engaging, and had helpful information about the area.
There is a decent camp store and a grill that served burgers and fries. We did not use the bathhouse or pool, but facilities seemed in good condition. The area was quiet and pleasant, except for a group of teens who played basketball in the late afternoon.
We had a very pleasant stay here and would stay here again if we were in the area. - villager

I agree that some of the older reviews are scary, and I was really worried about staying here, but the park isn't that bad. I will, however, say that we were placed in a permanent site, that the previous owner had left some cables, lights, a shed type building, and hoses. So this wasn't great for us. The site did have new gravel added, which I expect was because of our arrival. The site was pretty run down, but it did have water, electric, and sewer that all worked fine. We were across from the bath house, which my husband used. He said it was old but was clean, but it also did not have any soap, towels, or hand dryers. When we check in, the staff was pleasant enough, but did not tell us anything about the park or activities. They had a DJ Friday night, which we could hear the music from our site, and also bingo in a big hall they have, that we only found out from walking around, and just happening upon it. I have no idea if they had anything else scheduled for the weekend. A lot of the locals do have the golf carts and are driving around a lot. They had a few lakes, but the water all looked very green. We did not have a problem with any of the local residents, though we did feel a bit out of place camping in the permanent area. But they did come out to help another camper (not local), who was pulling in right during a rain storm and their truck got stuck in the mud. The local guys came out and hooked up their own truck to the camper to help get it in the site level. This is a very large park, which mostly seemed to be permanent sites (as we were put in that area), and the 'weekender' section seemed small. The roads are very tight in this campground, and a bit confusing to navigate at first. We had a bit of trouble finding our site. We also did not have a picnic table. The place was OK, but I probably would not stay here again. - Camper_Girl

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

Park is in great setting in valley that overlooks lake. Mostly for seasonal RVs but has separate section with 12 sites for overnight/short term RVs. Very well maintained and owners are super people. We were in need of repairs and owners went well above the call of duty to help us finds parts and repair our rig. - jctbob55

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

Our experience was great... So peaceful, large area for our 33FT travel trailer and room for our large pickup! Host & others very helpful & polite.
Not like KOA & other campgrounds that are so jammed pack with people & campers..
We will be back this year if we can make it. - Mary and Roger

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
