Nice campground to stay for a few days. Good FHU in pull though areas. Water and Electric well placed. Sites level. Very good Wifi, I measured 5.5 Mbps. Verizon signal mostly unusable (campground is in a valley). Our pull though was large enough for our 36' motorhome and toad. Surface gravel. Fire ring and table. Staff were very nice and courteous. Propane is across from the office. Many washers and driers for use. The campground is on a river across from a railroad track, but did not find the noise a problem. Satellite reception good in D and T pull throughs, if you are along the river probably will not work. Bike/walking trail goes though the campground. There is a camp store, but we were here the last weekend, and it was mostly empty. Many full time sites, but well kept. There is a gate to get in, just a, post not high enough for Class A, have to get out and buzz the office in order to get in to register. The road in is steep, stay in 1st and will still need to brake. Campground roads are narrow, but easy enough to navigate in our class A. Would defiantly stay here again. - wtravlr1

As others have said the roads around this campground are very steep and you have to travel very carefully. The roads in the campground are also in tough shape and in need of repair. Our site was pretty level and had a view of the river. No one around us so we had plenty of space and were surrounded by grass. Service was very good.
The campground is also quite large and had all KOA type services. Seemed like there were quite a few full time campers as well.
Trains at all times of the day which did not bother us as we are used to them by now. We would stay again. - John Borajkiewicz

The campground has been improved over time however at least 2/3 of the total sites are leased to seasonals and there is a very evident clique feeling about the place from some of these seasonal individuals. The lower section appears to be occupied by transient workers who are in the area for the Marcellus shale gas plant, lots of loud diesel trucks with welders coming and going at all hours. How often does a train go by across the river? So often you'll never even notice! - Ulysses E McGill_The Paterfamilias

The campground entrance was well marked and easy to find. Some of the internal roads were dirt with gravel scattered on top (which still became muddy when wet) and some were paved. Note that all of the roads in the RV site area were up a hill. They were easily maneuverable with a 36' DP motorhome, and there were shade trees on each site. Our back-in site was basically level, and an average width, and long enough to park the toad in front of the RV. The pad was gravel and in decent condition, and although most sites had some grass, it was on a hill between sites, which made it basically useless for our 3 Golden Retrievers. There was no cable TV, and no OTA stations. The water was easy to connect to, and the water pressure was sufficient. The sewer connection was at ground level, making it easy to use. The WiFi was easy to connect to, and the internet bandwidth was maybe a 4 out of 10, but it dropped out quite often, requiring a reconnect. Verizon cell signal was 3 out of 5 bars and 4G. We don't use restrooms or showers, so we can't render an opinion on those items. There was a dog park for our 4 footed friends, but it was a hike up a fairly steep dirt/gravel road to get to it. We did not notice any significant road noise. The price was reasonable for the services received. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We would probably stay here again. Please note: if you come here with a family, there are LOTS of activities for the kids and for the family (including a mini water park), and even some at night for just the adults. - Don Gagnon

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

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 very nice state park with the typical no-frills amenities. However, it is near Ohiopyle with a lot of hiking, waterfalls and river rafting activities nearby. We camped here during the week after Labor Day and it was it was only sparsely filled, which made it VERY quiet and relaxing. We arrived and no one was at the main office because of training. We self registered and went to our site. Most of the sites are well shaded within forested areas and very spacious. The showers were typical for state parks but were clean and serviceable with plenty of hot water. The restrooms were clean. The RV sites were electric only but several water filling locations on way into park. Dump station was easy to access on the way out of the park. Entrance roads are a little steep and hilly. I would stay here again. - Big P-Daddy

Lovely wooded campground with decent space between most sites - I stayed at #159, with two tents, and a tarp over the picnic table - truck parked above, parallel along the road, but close. Site is not level, but we managed to stay dry over two nights of downpours, and the creek behind the site drowns out the noise from the generator (?) building on its other sides - stay away from sites between 159 and the nearest bathhouse if you like quiet. Trails [some unmarked] link to campground road for easy hiking to area's striking waterfalls. Park is quiet, clean, and well maintained. Roads in are a steep grade. Firewood and ice for sale 24-hours at camp entrance. Cafe in town has excellent sandwiches. - minapie

Campground is set deep into the park. Long winding access road. Steep at the beginning. Campground is nice with sites set fairly close together and somewhat level. Pets are restricted to certain loops. Bathhouse facilities very nice and modern. Tons of hiking, great whitewater rafting, canoeing and kayaking. Possible to get potable water on way in to park at main bathhouse. Dump station also accessible on way in and out of park. - Nomadsinlove

The sign for the campground was easy to spot. This place is Very WELL MAINTAINED! The office/Gatehouse is at the front entrance! The lady who checked us in was super nice and friendly after check in two workers got into their golf cart to show us our site. Nice site (the lanes were a little tight for a 41 ft 5th wheel but do able). They helped us back in like a pro's! Site was great! This place is I would say 75% seasonal sites. I like that there is not a turnover of campers. The seasonal camp owners we met to said they had been here many years. The seasonal campers take pride in here their sites and make them look amazing. The staff.....SUPER AWESOME! I think the outside pool is the biggest we have ever seen!( It is like 1/2 of a football field in size. The inside pool could be a litter cleared. Lifeguards were on duty when we were there. The arcade was nice as well as the jump pillow and mini golf. Our kids had a blast. People have fun cruising the campground in their golf carts. We would and are planning on a return visit! PS: the fireworks were AWESOME as well as the Saturday night entertainment. ( Which was all included in the cost.) - WVRVGrandparents

I am doing this review from perspective of a transient camper, as compared to a seasonal one. This park is obviously focused on serving its seasonal customers more than travelers, and it appears that the seasonal folks really like it. But I would not stay here again if I was passing through area. Negatives first: -Required to pay in full at time of reservation, and no refunds are offered if you need to cancel, only a credit to a future stay. -The mostly-gravel (with some grass and mud) sites in the transient area are pretty close together, on narrow gravel roads barely wide enough for a trailer, and minimal maneuvering room opposite your site. Plus, after heavy rains (which was case for our visit), many of sites turn in quagmire of mud and puddles. As an older review mentioned, I needed to switch truck to 4-wheel drive in order to get into site. -Once I got RV into site, there was zero space for truck, and no nearby parking area. I was able to use a nearby site because the campground transient area was not crowded when we were there. If campground is full, maneuvering here in anything 30 foot or over would be horrendous. -The bathroom/shower facilities have very limited capacity considering the size of the campground. -Kids and families on golf carts drive around and around and around the roads endlessly On the plus side: -Staff was friendly and helpful in our limited interactions, and saw them go to great lengths to assist bigger rigs squeeze into tight spots while we were there. -Grounds and bathroom/shower facilities well maintained and cleaned. -Lots of amenities, like a mammoth outdoor pool, an indoor heated pool, mini-golf, arcade/game room, basketball and tennis courts, and a laundry, which we did not use but looked clean. -Good hot water in showers, but with low water pressure. -Sites had fire rings and picnic tables. -Good Verizon 4G coverage here, but no useful WiFi Bottom line: not to our tastes, maybe it will be to others. - We Roamed and Rambled

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

The bathhouse was closed for renovation until further notice when we camped here. Some sites are creekside (no sewer) and other full hookups were up steep, winding curves, between close trees. A little hard to navigate with a large camper but the scenery was beautiful. Owner is very friendly and the campground is gated for camper security. Owner emptied tanks on electric / water only sites twice a week at no extra charge. This campground is off the beaten path; yet close to village of New Stanton and the Westinghouse energy site. We would recommend this campground to anyone! - lapo99

This campground is definitely a one night stopover only. Roads are paved but sites are either gravel or packed soil and most are not very level. Lots of trees so no satellite but there is cable which was usable. Lots of permanent resident sites that are very unsightly. The worst part was the bathroom. It was probably the worst I've ever encountered in a campground. Nasty would be a nice description of it. It was very old, sinks were rusty, commodes were stopped up and showers were terrible. Electrical was OK but water pressure was low. They did have a rather nice pool although it was small. Would not consider staying there again unless absolutely no other choice. - RonaldS

The camp ground is beautiful with nice trees. There is a pool but we did not use it as we were here only overnight. All the spots are gravel and pull through but not very level. The utilities were good but water pressure varried a bit. The owner showed us to our spot and was very friendly. I thought the price was high for no amenities other than a pool. - esta34950

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

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

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

Roaring Run is deep in the woods, so if you like peace and serenity, you will probably like it here. The amenities we liked were the pool, mini golf and bocce courts. Our favorite activity was to head to the adult lodge, which has leather couches and chairs, big screen flat TV and games. It felt like a cozy, woodsy library. Definitely check it out if you are over 18 and camping there. - josie7

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

Stayed 2 nights while visiting "Falling Waters". Park had some sites winterized & we had a good choice of sites. Roads to campground are quite hilly as is this whole area of Pa. Sites are very close so I wouldn't return in busy season. Staff is very helpful & friendly. - Penfield Pathfinder

We stayed for 5 nights. We paid $39 per night using the Fall pricing schedule. Reservation process was easy. Check-in was fast and efficient. Staff is friendly and helpful. We were given two sites together (only charged for one) so we had a nice, long pull through. There is plenty of room before the entrance gate to pull to the side so you're not blocking it while checking in. Approach slowly so you can plan accordingly. We chose to unhook & hook up our toad outside the gate. All hook-ups worked well. Verizon cell and Verizon mifi were so-so. DirecTV signal was fine. The campground is clean and nights are blissfully quiet - no road noise and no trains. Interior turns are a bit tight but certainly do-able with a big rig. We didn't use it but there is a large pool and deck area which looked very clean. There are many long-term tenants but everyone was friendly and respectful. We enjoyed our time at Benner's Meadow Run. If we returned to the area, we would be happy to stay here again. NOTE - GPS overall is tricky in this entire area so prepare carefully. Once you're out and about, you might not get cell reception so have a back-up plan/map ready. Apple maps and Google maps both had quirks. Not normally the case but this time the Jeep nav system was the most accurate. - GottaGoNow

For big rigs, if you use US40 for your final approach, you should go to Nelson Road to access the park instead of "Chalk Hill-Ohiopyle Road" as there is a 10-ton weight limit approaching Benners. Also there is a pretty strong uphill leading into Farmington which you have to go through taking this route.
Overall thoughts mirror previous review by RockyMountainMama. For our situation, this park was below average. That said, if you're looking for a remote rural Campground with hookups and some amenities, you may like it better than we did.
Nice big pool, weak wifi, acceptable AT&T signal, but a lot of trees that blocked our satellite signal. Our big rig was tight in the park but not a problem until we tried to get level. We couldn't without lumber. The gravel back in spaces could be more level with a bit of effort from the proprietors.
Our purpose in the area was to visit Fallingwater, which is just 15 minutes away. We also wanted to get into Pittsburgh for a ballgame, which is 60 miles away. There really aren't a lot of convenient options to do both. And like many big cities, you can't find too many close in campgrounds.
Lastly, while they were clean, the bathrooms outside the office not open until 10am when the office opens We probably will visit Pittsburgh again and look to stay elsewhere. - McGarrert50
