This campground was selected as it is close to the freeway and easy off and on. Previous reviews didn't lend much optimism about Gaslight and many issues previously described are still issues.

The check in was handled by the owner and she was very pleasant and efficient. The office was a bit tired with a few video game machines and a pool table but everything was clean and tidy. The road to the site (which she provided an escort to) was in need of a resurfacing as it had a few potholes and some washboarding.

The site itself was a little challenging to level but with some jockeying back and forth we managed to find a suitable spot. Additionally the site surface was very large gravel which probably would be problematic if you used jacks.

We didn't have any issues with the 50 amp service and did not use the water per other reviews. One thing we expected was a bit of partying as it was a Saturday night, but the campground was very respectful and at 11:00 pm it was quiet hour: and it was quiet. We camped at Gaslight Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for 12 days, park has potential to be class one park, trees and lots of grass for pet walks, quiet and relaxing. But, we found after spot move, none of the sites are leveled, roads are pitted and after the storm some sites were too muddy to walk out of RV. Potential is there, just need work to make it great. We camped at Gaslight Campground in a Motorhome.

My husband was working long hours in the area and we stayed at Gaslight for a little over a week. The staff was extremely nice and helpful from calling for information and reserving, to welcoming us to the campground and escorting us to our site. We were very pleased with staying here and the only reason I did not give a 10 rating was the water has a lot of iron in it. Having said that, we would definitely stay here again if he is working in the area. The campground was mostly seasonal sites and was very quiet. They have a nice swimming pool and laundry available also and a small store with camping supplies. We camped at Gaslight Campground in a Motorhome.

Park has rusty water that comes out of your faucets so don't fill your tank! Listing makes it seem like the WiFi is free, but there's a charge. High rate for the type of park it is. Sites not level and hard to get your rig to level. We camped at Gaslight Campground in a Motorhome.

Last time we stayed here was 2005 when the new owners took over. Campground is much nicer now. Camped here with our grandkids. Saltwater pool was clean and refreshing, sites are not level but not that bad to level considering we do not have levelers on our RV. Bath rooms and shower areas were super clean. Have to pay for WiFi. Close to 80 but didn't hear highway traffic. Game room had a good selection of arcade games, pool table with juke box that the grandkids enjoyed playing. This was a weekday so there were no events scheduled for children. Camp store had basic RV supplies, condiments but most of all...plenty of ice cream to keep hubby and grandkids happy. We will camp here again when in the vicinity. We camped at Gaslight Campground in a Motorhome.

The Parks New Owners are very helpful finding you the right spot for your trailer. The Restrooms you could eat off the floors, showers are Free. The heated pool has salt water, is new and very inviting to get in. The kids loved the playground and they have things going on every weekend. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a Beautiful Place to stay. We camped at Gaslight Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Clean campground just a short way off (PA) I 80 Site was level side to side but not front to back. We were escorted to the site after a quick checkin. We camped at Gaslight Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Kind of run down. Short, very narrow pull thrus. Sites very close together. More of a resident park but OK for an overnight stay. We camped at Gaslight Campground in a Motorhome.

The campground is run down. The sites are not really easy to see because the gravel has all washed away. They are on the side of a hill which makes leveling a little tricky but it is manageable. The bathhouse is clean and in great shape. Playground is small. Pool is nice. Staff is friendly. I think it is too expensive for what you get. We will look to find another campground in the area the next time through. We camped at Gaslight Campground in a Motorhome.

This is primitive camping with a pricey rate. Evidently, the park had done some recent construction as the ground was rough, bumpy, and soft where we were parked. The office was unkempt and messy. First impression was not favorable. We were traveling East and just needed a one night stay. Probably won't stay here again. We camped at Gaslight Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Large park, newly added sites are nice sized. First impressions are always lasting; upon arrival the entrance displays the overall health of the park--unkempt. This park was described to me at another campground, by a local camper, as having been a great place 20 years ago, but it currently is in need of much work. Simply cutting the grass, trimming, weeding and cleaning up the flower beds, a coat of paint on all buildings would be a start. The general condition is simply run down. Camp store is virtually non-existent. It is a great location, easily accessible, right off of I-80, fuel at a large station big enough for large RVs. Park has huge potential but not in its current state. We camped at Gaslight Campground in a Motorhome.

Not much to choose from in the western part of PA along I-80. This place suffices for services needed for an overnight. We noticed that there many locals in the area and it was crowded over the holiday week. They have a nice pool and seemingly lots for kids and teens to do. They had a rec hall where music was playing and people were enjoying. An stream to fish in or wallow in depending on your interest was a point of interest for many. The services were good and the owners were pleasant, leading you to your site. I will say that the grounds were a little soggy from recent rain and there were some ruts from big rigs pulling out of their sites as they needed to take a wide swing beyond the gravel road in the grassy area to navigate by other RVs in adjacent sites. We used some blocking to avoid the jacks sinking in the ground. We were there just overnight and found it to be conveniently located off of the Interstate, although there is heavy construction at the exit that will probably last throughout the summer. We would stay again because of the convenience. We camped at Gaslight Campground in a Motorhome.

A well kept older park. However, the reason for our not being willing to revisit is low voltage. The weather was warm, the park was quite busy and our gauge warned us of low voltage. This can be pretty scary and a threat to your system. We camped at Gaslight Campground in a Motorhome.

Visited a 2nd time. Price had gone up, even with Good Sam discount. Owners say there is internet, but neglects to tell you there is a password until you ask for it. Also they do not control it and you have to pay! Sites are grassy and not level. Quiet. I would not go back a 3rd time. We camped at Gaslight Campground in a Motorhome.
