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

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

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

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

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

Confluence Outflow is next to a dam. It's a typical Corps of Engineers campground with no frills. This is about 20 minutes from Ohiopyle. It has well spaced, flat sites. No AT&T cell service, but Verizon worked fine. - zDale

Park is tucked back in the hills about 10 miles off the interstate. Starts out easy to get to, then quickly, the roads become rougher and more narrow. Once in the park, owner met us and showed us to our site. Internal roads are slightly narrow, but navigable. Some low tree limbs prevented us from extending either of our awnings. Full hookups were available. We only used electric, as we were only there 1 night. It's a little out of the way for a 1 night stay, but there didn't seem to be anything else closer to the interstate. Park was stone/packed dirt throughout. Site was super long, as it was designed for 2 long coaches, one behind the other (if you were traveling with another couple). Park is also slightly "hilly". Owner very friendly, and accommodating. Looked like there were some folks that lived there permanently, or used park as vacation/weekend "get-away". Would consider this a "stop-over" instead of a "destination" park. - usamacdonald2

The campground is located off a very rough blacktop road badly in need of repair. The road is narrow with low overhanging tree branches that must be dodged. The campground itself was okay but the photos online were much more attractive than the actual site. The office building area was littered with old construction equipment with items scattered all over the place. The owners had barking dogs that barked every time someone passed nearby. The only good/bad news is there was plenty of downed limbs for firewood that should have been cleaned up. It was obvious the owners weren't concerned about having a neat and organized campground. I would avoid this campground in the future. - joebud

Access to this campground was a nightmare...very narrow one-lane roads and about 5 miles off the freeway. Mostly full-time residents here with a few pull-throughs for travelers. - sbuckert

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

The park is truly beautiful but I can only give 3 stars because of the other issues. The campers were all down by the office except for one. The bathrooms down by the campers were all locked up. The only bathroom/showers were up on the top of the hill by the million dollar RV. The manager at first said they should be unlocked. He was told they were not unlocked. Then he changed his story saying the owner told him to lock them up. Then he told us he didn't have the keys. I have a disabled husband whom could not walk to the top of the mountain to take a shower or use the bathroom. We would have stayed two nights had the bathrooms been opened. However the Internet sucked. We keep being told the Internet is good only to find out we can't even get online. Oh and watch your step, it looked like human feces around the campground. I guess others couldn't make it to the top of the hill. We just used our motorhome. We camped here at the end of October. - Emtnest

This park is full of trees. Shady spaces, fairly level. We did observe 5th wheels having issues backing into back in spaces. They could probably improve those space by removing certain trees! We were after season, so a quiet park for us. It does fill up on football weekends. We would camp here again! - Proud Mary

The campground is very pretty, with a quiet, immersed-in-nature feel to it. It is only a few miles off Interstate 68, making it a good stopover spot while traveling. The clerk who took our reservation gave us good directions, and the turns are well marked with signs.
There seems to be one section for RVs, and it's a bit of a hike from that loop (Area D) to the office/store, dump station, or the new shower house, which we were told was very nice, but which we did not use, partly due to its distance from our site. Of course our RV has a shower, and the 30-amp hookup and water at the site made a bathhouse unnecessary for us anyway.
The service staff was very friendly and helpful. They did accidentally give our prepaid site and paperwork to someone else with a similar name. That person obviously didn't read his/her paperwork, because it had our name, address, and phone number on it (luckily, not the full credit card number!). The office clerk apologized for the error and immediately sent someone to go retrieve the paperwork and bring it to us, which he did. Mistakes happen, and I think they did what they could to correct it, so no points off for that.
The reason I rated this an 8 out of 10 is because the RV loop is pretty tight, with a narrow road, and the gravel sites are not very level -- they sloped a bit side to side, and we had to use every block we had and max leg extension to get it level. The trees are very nice for shade, but they made backing in to the site a bit challenging. We disconnected our pick-up tow vehicle and parked it beside the RV; it wouldn't have fit in a line. But the site was wide enough for us to park there.
All in all, it was a very nice place. We were in the off season mid-September, so it was quiet and uncrowded. The weather overnight was nice, and we could open the windows and wake up to the sound of singing birds and the breeze rustling the wildflowers blooming around the site. I would definitely camp here again. - Maggie420

This campground would probably work well for young families with small RV or trailer. Sites are gravel and not level. No 50 amp electric (we were told our site had 50 amp but that is really a 30 amp & a 20 amp they should provide adapter), cable, wifi or sewer at sites. Dump station is near office which is at the back of the campground. Has a lake for swimming but beach is mud not sand. The road off I-68 is narrow with no shoulder. It was advertised as big rig friendly but that is not true. Entrance hard to see & navigate. All sites are backin which would not be a problem if the roads were wider & trees were further apart. No picnic tables, patios or fire rings. We are here for 1 night and will only return in an emergency. - John & Bobbie

The guy who checked us in was very friendly and he even drove firewood to our site. We camped off season, very empty, peaceful and enjoyable. There was one or two seasonals but we were far enough away from them that it seemed we were alone. Yes we would come here often, though maybe not in season as it looks like it could be very full. In the snow season they offer sledding. It may be fun to camp here then too. - Ohiojude
