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

We enjoyed camping right on the river. Site was reasonably level (a bit over one degree off front-to-back and left-to-right). Cable worked fine, and wifi was great, with typical speeds near 10 Mbs while we were there. Very nice biking/walking trail goes right through the campground. Trains are frequent, but no horns by the campground and they didn't bother us. The road in was twisty, narrow and very steep (1st gear and brakes required with our 17,000 lb. fifth-wheel). We used this KOA as a base to visit Fallingwater (about 30 minutes away) and enjoyed the riverfront location and great trail. - Annie and Beast

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

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 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 another great state park. We went there to visit Falling Water which is close by. Then we discovered we could go to the 9/11 Memorial only about an hour away. Also discovered many other things to do in the area which we didn't have time to take in. Park is quite remote and a little difficult to access, but well worth the effort. We didn't heed to warning about the one route which is very steep and not recommended, so be warned - it IS steep. Also, as is many time the case with state parks, it is dry camping, but we did have 50 amp service - surprise! - elfforty

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

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 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

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

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

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
