17 RV Parks near Knox, Pennsylvania
Jul 2017 - $20.00
Large grassy field with W/E hookups, a dump station and a bath house with toilets, sinks and showers. Simple but clean and well kept, and very inexpensive. Close to highway I-80. The only cons - the field wasn't leveled. - TeamGC

Electric is 30a only. Most of the power boxes are old but useable. Sewer good. Water @ 40psi. No Wi-Fi. AT&T Cell Phone ok. AT&T Air Card not very good. Verizon 4G LTE Air Card very good better than expected. No Cable. Sites are in an open grass field. Site Size open with plenty of room to park tow vehicle. Site have plenty of room between them. Road to park is asphalt and narrow. Long way from highway. Didn't use Restrooms but all the fulltime tenants use them. Don't know if there is a Laundry. Long term tenants are around the outside edge and are clean and tidy. DirecTV Satellite is easy access. No Discounts. I made Payment in cash. $20 per night plus $3 if you use air conditioner. This may not be the park for everyone. It had rained hard the night before I got there and had no problem pulling thru to get to a site even though it is all grass. It is off the beaten path and very quite. Lots of open space to walk your dog. If you are there on the right days they have a dirt race track that would be fun to watch. It rained to much for a race when I was there so they did not hold any races. The other park in the area is not as great as indicated and I would very much like to stay here than the other one. - TXBobcat

The sites are large and level. The whole area is all grass and well kept up. There are some mobile homes and seasonal campers, but everything is very neat. It is very quiet there at night. I came and stayed for the races on Sunday night at Sportsman's Speedway which is right across the street and owned by the same people that own the campground. - mrracechaser

Good access from Interstate. Site 385. Do not believe this is a 50 amp site. The 50 amp is jerry-rigged. A park worker admitted this when he came to help us. We then decided to use only 30 amp plug. With this in mind, we would camp there again. We were the only rv there the night; we stayed during the second week of October, in the area up close to the road. Good for our satellite receiver. Quiet. Large rabbits out eating on the grass nearby. Adequate water and sewer hookups with normal length hoses. - michcamper38

First, I'm only writing this review because we based our decision to spend the weekend at this resort based on the reviews we read on this place and NONE of them were a clear indication of what we experienced once there. The price for this place and the shape of the "weekender" sites are shameful. I have stayed in nicer state parks. We were in the 300/400 section and not only did our site not have any gravel (you could tell at one time there used to be some) but we were left to try and level our RV with the ruts that were left in the ground from the previous campers. There was also a tent in the site directly behind us that was so far back that it was over into our site and we could not open the back of our camper. When we cooked dinner we literally could touch their tent. But in all honesty, it wasn't their fault, they were put on a full hookup site that looks like it used to be a parking space and the only patch of grass they could put their tent on was on our site! The sites were definitely not big rig friendly as a fellow weekender found out and had his large (very expensive looking) rig stuck twice trying to back into a grass spot. They finally left after having to be towed out TWICE! As we were setting up we notice we have NO picnic table. Their map clearly states that every site would have a picnic table and if you want an extra table it would be a $2 charge. Not only did we not have a table but the 4 sites around us didn't have one as well. As a previous "reviewer" stated there is a HUGE number of golf carts and the speeding golf carts with pre teens/teenagers screaming and yelling at all hours of the night was unbelievable. When we made our reservation we asked for a site near the playground since we are a family of 4 with little kids. They assured me that we were the closest we could get to their "big playground". The 1970's metal playground was a hike and bordered I-80. I will add photos but there was NOTHING my 2 years could play on at this play ground. - Jdrazick

Overnight stay in 26 ft motorhome, no toad. 417 was extra long site. Recent rains made for slightly mushy parking conditions. Large A nearby sunk into turf and needed help getting out before he even parked. Office staff very helpful, numerous amenities. Pizza at pool area very cheesy and good after long trip. - Juddyb

Park was extremely clean and neat. The owners could not have been more accommodating. We arrived after hours, calling them from I-80 to see if they had room for an overnight. We were advised to to pull up in front of the office and wait. (We drove by their house as we approached the office). They led us to our site and made certain we were satisfied and could get settled on our own. While the rest rooms/showers were "rustic," they were well-built and clean. The grounds were very well kept. The spaces were level--which took some effort during construction because the park is located on the side of a hill. There is an upper and lower level. Upper seemed to have more shade trees among the camps, while the lower level, although surrounded by trees, was pretty much open in the center, where we parked. Getting there was an easy drive from I-80. I did, however, drive (slightly) past the entrance because the park sign was only painted on the opposite side. A minor oversight, quickly forgotten by the warm welcome. - Racer and Friend

Ask for a level site. They said all sites were level! Ours certainly was not. We were tired and just slept falling to the right. Laundry is on a covered porch. Restrooms and showers are clean but, rustic/archaic. WIFI is NOT free! Each connection was about $4 per night. Did not do it! And do not like being misled. No cable or air TV. Yes, in the woods and very hilly, if you desire that type of camp. - Sir_Charles395

Rustic Acres RV Resort and Campground is bordered on two sides by state game lands, which means plenty of trails and undisturbed forest just waiting to be explored. When it gets hot, I bring my two dogs down to play in the large creek just down the trail from our camper. Since it is so close to the woods, it's very peaceful and there is often wildlife frolicking around the park; it's not uncommon to wake up and see groundhogs, squirrels, chipmunks, rabbits and birds going about their business right outside our window!
As if the wooded paradise wasn't enough, the campground is also very conveniently located. Wal-Mart, Aldi's, a local butcher, Amish merchants, farmers markets, several restaurants and fast food chains are all just 5-15 minutes away in both directions. Cook's Forest is just 18 miles up the road and if you feel like visiting the city, Pittsburgh is only an hour's drive away!
The family that owns it are very hard working and aim to see their campers happy. We arrived in the middle of the night after a rough trip across the country, and the lady still met us at the brightly lit office and was happy to walk us through the camp's rules and help us get settled in. Throughout the day, the owners can be seen and heard buzzing around the camp making sure everything is going smoothly, while stopping for a chat with anyone who wants to.
They offer really competitive rates compared to the nearby parks (I paid $35/night for 30amp service, but they also have 50 amp service available for $40), and military personnel get a 10% discount!
The only time I recall a power problem was during a thunderstorm, and the owner gave us regular updates from the power company so we knew the status of the repair in close to real time. The sewer lines are very easy to hook into with standard bayonette connectors.
All in all, I highly recommend this place be it for just a night or a whole month! - happycamper28

I called Gaslight campground the day before I planned to arrive to reserve a campsite. I reserved a 50 amp pull through site. At check in I was told no credit cards accepted because their machine was broke, cash only. That was a problem for me because I use credit cards. I accrued atm fees, but payed in cash. I was escorted to my site, leveled my trailer, put out my 3 slides, and started to plug in. Discovered my electric receptacle was 30 amp, wore out and corroded. (no electric service). I informed the campground office, and was told to move to another site. A lot of work moving and resetting up twice, which was not easy due to unlevelness of both sites, requiring extensive blocking up. My new site had dog poop from loose roaming dogs. Loose dirt, little gravel, sloped over 4 inches side to side. Amongst (pipe-line workers) staying there. Needless to say I left very early the next morning.... ASAP ! - _RAY_

The lady at the desk takes cash only. Keep up with your receipts, she will try and get you to pay again. The water goes off all the time and it is very dirty we had to constantly change our filters. The pool had dead snake in it 3 different days and the pool is open to the whole town and is always dirty. They don't mow very often. This campground was horrible and I have been in some rough places we travel for work so I have stayed all over the US. We will not be back at this place.
Don't go here the campground. Website is not updated. This campground needs a lot of work - kris1

The best things about this campground are the location right off I-80, and the reasonable cost. The office and surrounding area were very messy, stuff everywhere. The roads are rutted and full of potholes. The sites are very unlevel. Nearly every RV has boards under one side to get level and many sites are not level front to back. Sewer connection higher than our sewer opening. Had to move rig to dump.
We were told they had a new wifi system and the owner who checked us in said she would bring us a card with the password shortly. Two days later we still haven't seen it. Water is rusty and water pressure isn't great. We asked for 50 amp but were given a 30 amp site. Power was steady and strong. Verizon cell and data service were very good. - John and Carol

This is an Airstream-only park run by a non-profit organization. About 20 sites are available for transient visitors; the rest are occupied by leaseholders. Annual leases are about $600 per year. Non-Airstream owners are welcome as guests of residents or Airstream transient visitors. The transient area is open with little shade, while all other sites are heavily shaded. Verizon doesn't work here but AT&T does. Wi-Fi reaches most of the park. The park is about 4 miles from Interstate 80 near Clarion PA. - silvertube

Went for Civil War Re-enactment. Won't go back. Park employees do not enforce any of the rules they list. Dogs are left alone in campers all day to bark, and kids are riding their bikes after dark. So glad no child was hit because no one drives the 7 mile an hour speed limit. Park staff was told about a dog that had a woman and her dog on the ground and the staff never bothered to do anything about it. Boy Scouts were camped there this weekend and you could not ask for better kids. Too bad the ones running around at 11:30pm weren't as good. - shell5

The campground is fantastic, we camp in a travel trailer. The sites are all level and well sized. Lots to do in the campground with planned activities and including a heated pool, putt-putt golf and game center. This is my favorite campground. - Rockwood Mini-lite

We needed a place to stay overnight. It was 20 mins. Off of rt 80. We came after hours. I repeatedly hit intercom button on gate, finally called owners. We had a large pull through spot. Very nice campground. We were under very tall pine s and able to get satellite. People were camping in tents, cabins, 5th wheels. There was also a fair number of permenant parked homes that were well kept and very attractive. They offered a pool, convenience store and propane. We would consider staying there again. - kimme

I found the sites much closer than our previous ACE camp in Tioga, PA. We had full hookups with 50A elec. I'm not really fussy but these washrooms needed a better cleaner I thought. There were great hiking trails and the grounds outside the campground area were beautiful and so well kept. - Darleen

We stayed in site 53 and our electric would not work in our camper on Saturday night 8/12/17. The park was clean and friendly people. The campground hosts need to do a little more about the traffic going so fast on the loops. I felt they were going way too fast in pet area. The rest rooms could use an upgrade or a paint job. No cleaning crew came to clean restrooms. - xteddiegirlx

Stayed in spot 002. Nice location but definitely not level. used two leveling boards for 3" rise on right side but bubble only just touching target.
Otherwise was nice place and would stay again but would select one of the other sites. - Tireman9

Cook Forest is a large Penna State Park campground. Facilities are older but well maintained and kept reasonably clean. Full on labor day weekend and very smoky in the evening because practically everybody was running a fire. Average site size, some sites are too open to the roads. This park now has some sites with full hook up including sewer. Lots of activities available in the state park. - kanling

We hosted this campground as part of the USACOE volunteer program in summer 2011 and have stayed there many times previously and since. This is a well hidden zero services park on the tip of the Allegheny National Forest, adjacent to the Tionesta river and is even part of the flood plain. For your $10 a night you get a spacious site, most of them are well shaded, half of them abut the Tionesta river, a picnic table, and a fire ring. You get use of a water spigot to fill your tank, a dump station, and a restroom house with toilets and sinks. No water hookups, no electric hookups, no sewer hookups, no WiFi, no cell coverage. Perfect. This is a very popular site among the 'boondockers' and is first come first served. All the sites have level ground and only 1 or 2 tops might give pause to leveling a long trailer. You can easily drive 1 minute to a famous redneck bar, or 3 minutes to a camper store, or 20 minutes to a small town with a grocery store and gas. Otherwise, you are isolated and we try to keep it that way. The wildlife howls at night and passes thru, the fishing is great, and they sky is open. There is a swimming hole approx 5-6 ft deep above the entrance which is usable even in late summer when the river is down to damp rock. The Tionesta river is a drain for the ANF and is fed by few springs or wetlands, hence it can run too shallow for even a kayak. But in the spring it runs over its banks. There is not always a campground host to direct you where to go, but if you have 30-40 minutes to spend you can get to about anything you want. No booze allowed and no fireworks and the sheriff does patrol. This is also located near ATV trails and is a stop for a twice yearly ATV 'tour de forest'. Definitely off the beaten path and definitely worth it. - Ed G

I am there for the summer so my daily rate reflects their advertised rate. Good camp store and pool for recreation. Pool closes at 6 PM. It is a large campground with mostly seasonal sites. Entertainment on most weekends. Tent camping is no longer permitted. Most of the transient sites are in full sun with easy access. - Wilco

We were very unhappy with this park. I emailed for a reservation and very clearly stated that we needed a 50-amp, full hook-up site and preferred a pull-thru. They responded saying that they had a site available for the dates we were interested in. To be fair, they didn't specifically say they had a 50-amp site but they sure didn't say they didn't have one, either. We got there and found that there are NO 50-amp sites available. If we hadn't already unhooked, we would have left then. Also, after they had run my card, I noticed a (small) sign saying, "ask about saving 10% with Good Sam". I told them I was a Good Sam member and they said that they didn't offer it unless we asked for it and certainly didn't offer to refund the 10%, which would have saved us over $20 (a little under-handed, I think). We have been camping for many years and our site was the most uneven we have ever encountered. It took every piece of blocking we carried to get level. I didn't use the women's showers but the restrooms were clean and neat. However, my husband used the men's shower and said it was awful! It was impossible to regulate the water temperature and the stall was too small to get out from under the spray. Also, the mat was so hard and rough that it was miserable to stand on. The pool was great but they had really limited hours. They close at 6 pm and it would have been nice to be able to swim a little later in the day when the sun wasn't so hot. The vast majority of the campers were permanent/seasonal but they all were very neat and well-maintained. At least some of the roads appear to have been paved at one time but were mostly level gravel now. The grounds were neat and clean and grass was mowed. There was a nice well-equipped playground. Water pressure was low but adequate. Cable TV had very few channels and the picture wasn't very good. Wi-fi is available but for an extra charge and, since we weren't told that ahead of time, we chose not to use it. - SandyA

Very large campground. Mainly permanent sites. Nice facilities and pool. Store was well stocked and prices reasonable. Close to Cook Forest activities. Nice hiking trail adjacent to campground. Nice playground and small 9-hole mini golf. WiFi available for $2.00 per day for 1st device (speed was slow to average). Sites for weekenders are jammed on top of each other staggered back to back in several rows on a slight grade. Should be a 1/3 less sites for the space available. Why campgrounds do this confuses me. Most people would pay a few dollars more for some extra space which would make up the $ lost from packing us in like sardines. Got VERY busy and loud on weekend (wouldn't be so bad if not such close quarters). We could hear every word spoken by campers behind and beside us. Our site was not level. Noticed that the 4 available pull-thru sites are literally feet from the road with only a split rail fence separating. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We would NOT stay here again on a weekend. - GMC4018
