17 Parks near Knox, Pennsylvania

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

Very clean facilities and, contrary to a couple of reviews, the staff are quite friendly. It is right off I-80 and easily accessible, although the roads are often narrow depending on the part of the campground you are in. The majority of sites are seasonal and most seasonal campers are friendly.
The issue is the teenage population who run unchecked in their parents' golf carts at all hours. On the whole, they are loud, reckless, and drive without concern for those walking along the road and have nearly run me down on two occasions. This stands to ruin an otherwise awesome place and I really hope they can get this under control. Clean pool with lifeguards, passable 18 hole golf course, snack bar, game room and close proximity to Clarion, PA and Cooks Forest. - HmmHaah

It took us three different sites to find one that was somewhat level. We asked if they had a hot tub, were told yes. Well they have one but the water was cold. Now we have to ask if they have a hot tub hot. We would not camp here again. - User1608

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

New owners are trying to improve this park. Lots of older seasonal rigs here. Narrow roads. FHU, 30amp, gravel mostly shaded. Playground (small). Very friendly people invited us to the ice cream social & barn fire. Escorted to site. - jcpjane

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. - skiddy

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. - carol

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. - Sondkr

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

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

Wonderful campground with friendly staff, stayed here on their Christmas weekend and was impressed with the effort put in for everyone to enjoy. Close to Cook Forest and plenty of activities going on with a nice Putt-putt course. Nice sites in a partially wooded setting, looking forward to a return trip next year. - fil564

Arrived September 22, only to find them already closed for season, even though website says they are open into October.
Guess you better call each COE to make sure!! - Sir_Charles395

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

A little difficult getting into, be careful if coming down 36. It sneaks up quick coming down the hill. Nice campground. we stayed in a 39' rig with 3 slides. It was a little tighter than I would have liked, but for the first trip with an upgraded camper, I managed with no problems. Very clean park, full hook up sites. A very pretty area. I will come back again. - Lost_countryboy

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 stopped here for one night while driving through the area. Difficult to find, narrow access roads, and address online leads to park office not "Ridge Campground". The showers had excessive pressure to the point that is hurt to be under water. Sites have electric hook up but no water. - JGS

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

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

This is a large park with mostly seasonal sites. Lots of activities for the kids, with wide open spaces. Got the Good Sam 10% discount and stayed over Friday and Saturday nights. Lots of unsupervised screaming kids became an annoyance which we reported to the staff. We would stay there again but cannot recommend weekends. - Desert Captain
