10 Parks near Jefferson, Pennsylvania
Jun 2013 - $35.00
Never again! Terrible. In the rear parking lot of a firehouse. Siren went off about once an hour all night. Nearby train whistle all day and all night. To get there, the roads were narrow and twisty. Lots of workers (linemen, oil workers, etc.) with their families. Semi-permanent. - mrpeepers

The campground is about eight miles from I-79 through the rolling hills of PA, not a problem getting there but it is not your typical highway campground. The park is located behind and run by the local volunteer fire department and staying here helps support the fire department. Our site was near the end of the lot and slopped some. The loose gravel. slope, and recent rains made it difficult to level but we made do, as it was simply an overnight stop for us. Some sites are paved and more level, there are even some pull-thru sites. There are no facilities or activities as this is a simply an area to park your RV. Many of the sites had long-term residents who are working in the area. - Dave Hole

We were traveling at night and needed a place to stay and shower, we stopped at the PA Welcome center on I-70 and grabbed some brochures. They were the only answer we got (at 9pm) so we headed there. We were so happy we ended up staying 2 extra nights. The fireman who manages the place is incredibly friendly and extremely helpful. He met us at the front at 11pm and took us back and let us pick a spot. He mentioned that if they had been full, he would have parked me in front of the firehouse and ran power and electric to my trailer. The bathrooms and shower house was pretty new and very clean. They had laundry facilities but we didn't use them as we only stayed for a few nights. Sites were level, water pressure was great and it was so quiet and comfortable there it was a treat. The only potential down side to note is we had no phone service back there, and had to go out to the road to make or receive calls. We will definitely stay here again, they have a monthly rate that is extremely reasonable. - The Bells 412

This is a good place for an overnight when passing through. I called and told them we would be arriving late and the camp host cheerfully stayed up (till 9PM) when we arrived. The campground was clean, the grass was mowed and there were good gravel roads in the campground. and they gave us a pull through site as we were just passing through. Dump station on the way out. Water and 30 amp service at the site. Nice RV/camping signs were posted from the interstate that led you to the site. Maybe 2 miles from the exit. There is a small truck stop at that interstate exit also.
This is not a resort, but a nice place to stop for the night when passing through. - eb145

We would camp here again. Wi-Fi not advertised and not available. GPS directs to one exit north of exit to use: Davistown Rd exit. The campground can be seen from Interstate. This is a good overnight campground. It is near 24 hour gas & food and easy on/off interstate. When told we were overnight and in route, we got a pull through with WE30S that did not need leveling. Connections are tight. Maybe 10 campers are long term work campers with friendly and helpful people. Staff is great. Bathhouse and laundry are aged but spotless. In 27 days of camping, this was, by far, the best shower. No restrictors, timers, temp governors. Just powerful water hot enough to peel shrimp or cold enough to chill them - as you like it. There is, literally, room for two in the showers with a shower head on either end. This campground is a campground, not trying to be a resort or squeeze another nickel with another fee. Since camp was built the highway expanded adding noise from the highway, which is in sight. From 10: - nothing. They do not claim a thing they do not do well. The park welcomes families but does not have a pool or playground so I did not mark it family friendly, though it is. - Frank Rader

Easy in easy out. Used as an overnight stopover. Staff friendly and accommodating. Would stay here again. Sites are large. - golplt

I stayed for a week in the off season, so the nightly rate I paid reflects that. I didn't use the pool so can't comment on that. Overall, I had a great stay at this park.
My ideal park would have more shade, be more natural, and have more privacy. But even so, this place had just about everything I could need. I enjoyed the excellent wifi, the level gravel sites, with grassy areas around the picnic table, the peacefulness, the cleanliness, and the wonderful service by the owners. I also liked the security, with codes needed to access the RV area and the bath house.
The deep dip in the driveway mentioned by other reviewers seems to have been corrected - there is clearly new asphault, making the area more level. The park was easy to find, with very visible signage, in a great location just off I-70. - CamperChris4

This is an unusual place: a large water park in conjunction with an RV park. I used the RV park just for an overnight in the course of a long road trip. I did not use the water park so cannot comment on it (though it looked inviting!).
The RV area is a large, flat terrace above the water park with a pretty river flowing below. While in a beautiful setting, the campground area is virtually treeless and nondescript. It is a good place for an overnight only, or to camp while enjoying the water park, but I don't see it as much more than that ... and $45 is a little steep for an overnight. (The price including the water park is higher.) - BobbyG2016

The GPS will have you tuning before the RV park so beware. The park has a sign where the GPS is telling you to turn which tells you to go up the road another 400 feet which is helpful. RV park is tied to a small water park. RV park is vey small, maybe 30 sites, all back ins and a little tight navigating. Roads are paved and sites are level, narrow and gravel. Sites have grass and picnic tables. We got some rain one night and the left rear stabilizer jack sunk five inches into the ground. Restrooms are convenient and clean. Dumpster is way down the hill. Small uninviting pond. Quiet yet convenient to highways. Good satellite reception. - VegasVagabonds

This campground is great for traveling workers but not for a family stay. Very reasonable weekly and monthly rates. Campground is cut into the side of a hill and sites are narrow. Owners are nice folks. We stayed for 2 weeks because our options were limited for staying the area. - nascaron

Be sure and follow the KOA signs along the road. Follow the instructions given at web site. The road to the park is very narrow, but is paved. Wi-Fi worked good and there are lots of TV channels. We had a nice long plu-thru. - gosee

We didn't hear a lot of noise but some. It's a very hilly park and spaces are somewhat level - very close to one another. We only stayed one night. - Catsinatrailer

Site could have been more level. Overall it was a nice campground. We had a pull-through site, and did not have a toad. - CAcamping

Camped in a 35 foot fifth wheel in unnumbered back-in site. "Campground" is a large paved parking lot with an island of a few full utility hook-ups at rear of sites. Sites are level with lots of room for tow vehicle. About 18 good over the air TV stations; no WiFi. Parking lot is lit with high utility pole lights until very early morning. Quiet at night. There is a community center at edge of lot that was open until late evening & which has restrooms.. No laundry. Easy I 79 access. - Scottsdale RVers

My son graduated from WVU last weekend. As usual local hotels take advantage of any special events at the University. The event sites were very close and it was great having our camper to entertain friends and family.The camping area is a giant parking lot. All of the utilities worked well and the staff was pleasant. If you need to be in Morgantown this is a convienent place to stay. - Shady Spring

Pretty easy to get to. Do not turn at the first sign for Mylan Park, go to the second one. We stayed only one night so were told to park along the island which was essentially a pull-thru site. Water, 50 amp and sewer were fine. Sure it is a parking lot but equate it to a nice level paved pad, with no side-by-side sites (i.e. neighbors), in a campground and you realize it is kind of nice. It was very quiet at night. - cwier

Be advised that the campground will be on a first come, first served system (and might even be closed altogether) starting June 1, 2015 for much needed repairs and upgrades. $20 per night (regularly $24 per night before senior citizen discount) was for a needed-leveling (6" on our right side) gravel/grass site. We did have 50-amp electric service and there was water available a few sites away. Be warned about the almost backward turn you will have to make to access the road to the campground if you come from the park office. We unhooked our tow vehicle in the park office parking lot and, even then, after pulling all the way to the right before attempting the left turn, we still had to back up once before completing the turn. The surrounding area was mowed grass with a wooden picnic table and fire ring. There were loads of trees in the campground providing shade for most of the day. The perimeter of the campground has been left to return to nature so there were loads of trees, plants (including milkweed for the monarch butterflies and other flowering plants for other butterflies) and abundant wildlife. The night sky is very dark so the stars are brilliant when they peek through the treetops. This campground is located miles from the nearest city so come prepared with supplies. AT&T service was two bars of 4G LTE using our booster and Verizon service was one bar of 1X. We received six over-the-air TV stations and many radio stations. - DD Rolling Ranch

Quiet and isolated. Drive in could be a problem for bigger units. Campsite is on top of a small round top hill. There was a trail that circles the campsite that was actually the boundary between the hunt-no hunt areas of the park, in other words it was the firing line. We passed a couple of hunters during our evening hike. Enjoyed our stay but we were really glad the park office had flush toilets and hot water. - buzzards27

Park is in wooded area and secluded with many trees. Not too much to do. Park was clean and the owners were nice people. Very quite.
Price should be around $35.00. - johnmack

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

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
Jun 2016 - $58.00
The last day of our stay we pulled out of our spot at check out time, noon, but they wouldn't let us use any of the facilities after check out time, unless we paid for another day, which was $58. Completely unaccommodating!
Also, trains come through about every 30 minutes all day and night. Very loud, and kept us awake. - Two Kids and a Camper

We camp here at least once a year because it is nearby. This was our first camping trip of the year. The kids enjoy the playing in the river and fishing. We stay on the premium sites when available. They're located right on the water. There is a nice bike trail as well that goes past the historical coke ovens and the planned activities for kids are really nice. When we were there this time they made nature bookmarks with the items they found on their walk. Another popular spot is the pool. It is well kept and clean. I would recommend this campground for a nice get-away! - Frinny
