10 Parks near Portersville, Pennsylvania

Big rigs should avoid this park. Narrow entry road off the freeway, no place to park to check in and sites are angled at 90 degrees making them difficult to get in and out of. Staff on arrival was young, unprofessional and not helpful at all. It is in a beautiful setting and would be a nice place to stay with a small unit or a tent. - Amls

Really nice park with easy interstate access but far enough away to be quiet. Super clean, well maintained and beautiful. If you have an RV 30' or shorter I recommend it. Big rigs should stay away. The sites are long enough but very narrow and to enter or exit your site you need to make a ninety degree turn onto a very narrow road. - Igotjam

This park is nice enough. It is clean and well kept. The only downside is that the sites are incredibly small. Super duper small. We had a nice time and the staff was friendly. - sackspa

Sites are tight, but site 20 was ample for our 42'. Trees toward the back of our site still allowed us to use our satellite. The pool was nice, had one foot deep shallow end up to five foot at its deepest. Quite a few seasonals, well taken care of. Decent playground as well. We also rented the deluxe family cabin, site
79, complaints about the comfort of the beds. A/C could be a little better as well. Overall this campground isn't bad, just tight. - User3025

The spots for overnighters are extremely tight! We had a hard time getting into our site that was not very level front to back so we had to unhook the toad to position the coach. Sites are very muddy in the rain. There is a nice dog park, playground for the kids, and a store with lots of stuff. With our 37' RV we would not stay here again. - Tony Connie and Rusty

Back to back sites. Back in (some pull throughs), some seasonal (very clean), Gated. Site is grass, shaded. Playground, pool, dog park, bath, laundry. Activities on weekends. I felt a little closed in with the back to back site. But, great place would go back and ask for a pull through. - jcpjane

Stay as far away from this place as you can. For $50.00 all you get is W/S/E at a fairly level site. No cable or internet, no over the air TV. - Chiefmorgan

Close to I-79. Roads in park are straight and turns are easily made, however, the surface is very rough. Staff helpful but office closed most of the time. Most of the sites are seasonal and these are spacious and well maintained. The transient sites are not. While they are very level, they are close to each other. With slides and awnings out you may have less then 10ft separation. Many are pull-thru but then they put someone behind you leaving very little length to the site. When it rains they flood. Other then the poor transient sites and roads, the park is clean and well maintained. There is a very nice play area with a basketball court. There is no wi-fi but our AT&T and Dish satellite worked well. There are very few choices for rv parks in the Pittsburgh area so we would stay here again. - atwig

Interior roads need repaved. Sites are gravel/grass and very narrow, put your awning out and it will rest on the slide out awning of your neighbor's. Very minimal staff. There is no one in the office, it asks you to call a cellphone number only after ten o'clock. Security gate straightforward plastic I'D card. Pools is open and looks clean and tidy. Games room and community hall: live bands on a Saturday. No dog park but plenty of walks with one unusual feature: a footbridge that goes into Main Street Zelienople open at one end locked at the other?? Some contractors, but mostly weekenders. The "TS" sites are kept for short term visitors. - BRIDGEMAN

Is geared towards seasonals. They have over 200 seasonal sites and about 15-20 visitor sites. Owner is very nice and personally escorted us and helped us park. It was reasonably close to Pittsburgh and we were visiting family, that's why we chose it. When we pulled up we stopped at a gate to enter the park, we were told to back up and go up a dirt path to the visitor sites. The seasonal sites are behind a gate and surrounded by a fence. We felt like an afterthought and an outcast. For the weekend it was us and maybe 4 other RV's, but they parked us all close together. The sites are laid out oddly, the electric and water hookups are on the opposite than most other campgrounds and we had to run the hoses across our site. The sewer hookup for the next site was super close to our picnic table and fire pit (like within 6 feet) The sites were very narrow, we could not fit out truck in front of the site, even perpendicular. The neighbors had a fire and they were so close I was afraid of our tanks exploding. We asked permission to receive mail there and they allowed it but didn't notify us that anything arrived and seemed annoyed when we asked. The restrooms were clean, we had to walk quite a ways around a building or else jump the fence and walk through the seasonal side. Lots of options for the area, we probably wont stay here again. Price was comparable to others. - sbrigga315

We didn't notice any of the ruts as mentioned in other reviews. There are two speed bumps, one on the entrance road and one at the entrance to the transient camp area. Neither are unusual. Our site was very nice with plenty of room. It slopped back to front and right to left, but we were able to level with out too much effort. Good cable TV. Bad WiFi. Given the overall lack of full hook-up sites in the general area, this campground is a gem. We would return if in the area. - 15243

The Pittsburgh area has very few CGs around, and this is one of the better ones we have used. The CG is overwhelmingly permanents, and the transient section is separate (about 20 sites). The sites were 100% grass, which is great when the weather cooperates. Our site, and many others had very deep depressions where the camper sits. It is basically a hole, I suppose from years of camping, without any attempt to fill and level the site. If you had a lot of rain, you would be sitting over top of a giant puddle under your unit. The hole was so deep that our bottom step nearly rested on the ground. But, we had good weather, and the abundant grassy areas made for great play areas and sites for pick up games for the kids. And when outside, the grass was soft under your feet, so going barefoot was very comfortable. The road into the CG and to the site had numerous and very tall speed bumps. Use care, as there are numerous indications of hitches, etc. hitting them. There is a very tight turn at the top of the hill, and having forgotten to take off my sway bars, one popped out and I drug it for several yards without realizing it. Not necessarily the CGs fault: just a warning. The office staff was courteous, but not overly friendly. The site shares an electrical post with the adjoining site, and the folks there had taken the only 30A outlet. The office supplied me with an adapter pigtail, no questions asked. Laundry and bath houses are all in the permanent section, which has a coded gate. You have to drive there if you have a load of laundry as it is too hilly and far away to walk. If no one is in the office, you are out of luck getting through the gate. Grounds were well tended, and pool looked clean. Definitely an older CG, but it seemed to be adequately cared for. We would use this CG again. - begerter

Nice clean KOA. Clean outdoor pool, store well stocked. Laundry located in store was good price ($2/wash & .75 dried a medium load). Exercise equipment nice. For some reason television went out and then just one channel worked the last two days of our stay. Some rain. No heavy storms. Grass extremely high at pond and throughout property. Huge yellow jacket nest at entry of women's bathroom. Staff said they have been trying to get rid of it for two weeks. Apparently calling in professional pest control is not an option? - eliterror

We stayed for one night as part of a longer road trip. The sites were close together, but shaded. The staff was friendly, and we enjoyed using the heated pool at the end of a long travel day. - beccaf1970

This has just become our favorite (close to home) park. Paved roads, large level gravel sites, nice pool, good playground, excellent mini-golf course. Staff was very friendly and helpful; we were escorted to our site and given help to get backed in since they don't have pull-thru sites. All hook-ups worked well although the water outlet was rather far from the site; we had to use our 50' hose to get connected. The wifi worked well and we were able to get a lot of channels off the antenna. Their dog park had ramps and tunnels and other obstacles which our pups enjoyed much more than just a bare lot to sniff around in. They were constantly working to maintain and improve the sites, although the park was already in excellent condition. There were almost constant activities scheduled for the kids and, even though participation was low during the week, they still put them on. My only slight complaint - and the only reason I didn't give them a 10 -was a $15 charge for a wrist band to use the jump pads, mini-golf and bike rental. If you only have one child, the free mini-golf was pretty much useless and she had her own bike so it came down to too much money for a couple of minutes on the jump pad. Other than that, we really enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back. - SandyA

Pride in ownership everywhere you look. The Quiqley family really knows how to run a campground. Bathrooms are spotless; every time I used the restroom it looked like I was the first one to use it after being cleaned. The facilities are exceptionally well maintained. Camp store is quite extensive. The kids had an absolute blast; between the visits with Yogi Bear and all sorts of activities and crafts, no one was ever bored. The staff was very friendly; special shout-out to Miss Cathi (from Texas) and the wonderful treatment she gave my kids. Would not hesitate to visit again even though it is a long drive from our home in Indiana. We spoke with several repeat / seasonal campers (btw, seasonal campsites were very well maintained, not dumpy looking like at some parks) who all voiced the same happiness with this place. It's no wonder they have so many repeat customers. If there was one improvement I could offer, it would be to expand the swimming pool and add a splash pad; word is the owner is considering doing something like that in the future. - Fdwt994

We stayed here for their Halloween celebration. They had trick-or-treating for the kids and a haunted pavilion. This park always amazes. We camped in the overflow area and our site was level and spacious. We will definitely be back. - Trinket

This is a very nice campground. Everything is well kept and clean. Nice pool and playground. Our site was fairly level, adequately spaced and not hard to get into. We had an escort, Joe, who took us to our site and assisted with maneuvering in. He was friendly and knowledgeable. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful. They even deliver ice and firewood to your site for a fair price. They do their best to make you feel welcome and appreciated.
The only down side to our site was a large tree with roots that extended into our door area. Since there was a dry spell the roads were very dusty. Both were mild irritations not problems.
The transient and seasonal areas are separate. We found the seasonal people to be quite friendly. All of their sites are tidy and kept to look like they are part of a campground, not a trailer park.
We would camp here again without hesitation. Our week there was very pleasant.
We camped here in a travel trailer. - Stephen20

The owners could not have been nicer. When we checked in the owner took us to our spot and helped us back in. They have a nice playground and pool. The restrooms were very clean. I would definitely camp there again. - beaglefamily24

This park is very clean, quite, and well maintained. The pool was nice. They have a great catch and release pond that yielded some 3+ pound large mouths. The sites are well spaced and relatively level and the owners are super nice. I would have rated higher, but they charge an extra $8 per kid over two. This is a little steep for the area and there were limited (hayride) organized activities for children. We will camp here again. - Trinket

On PA-51, about 6 miles from the Ohio border. Turn east/south at the blinking yellow light onto OH-168, Salem Church Road then about .8 mile, turn right on Hodgson Road, then .8 mile and left into the CG.
Weekly rate $170; monthly $380. No credit/debit cards accepted; cash or check only. All electric is metered, even for daily visits ($0.11/kwh). One employee who is very friendly and helpful. Municipal access roads are sufficiently wide, maintained, asphalt but lots of ups-and-downs. Watch for one low-hanging tree on Hodgson Road. Internal roads are gravel, somewhat narrow with no overhead obstacles.
A variety of sites which are grass/gravel with mowed lawns and occasional tall trees. A few sites have patios; most have picnic tables. All sites are FHU-20/30/50, level with pedestal at the road end of the sites. Sufficient clear sky for satellite antennas. No cable TV. Fires permitted in fire rings. Well water has low, but adequate pressure and okay taste. No office store. No propane sales. Restrooms/showers are old but clean with newer fixtures but minimal privacy (score "B-"). No laundry.
Spacious, grass playground. Very nice, unheated, salt water pool. No spa. Free Wi-Fi but internet access is weak and unreliable. Verizon coverage is dismal at "½ bar." CG is in the country and is very quiet. No recycling bins. - StephenK

We stayed for 4 days visiting relatives in the area. The campground was nice and neat. We got a shaded, pull-in site. Many of the RVs seemed as if they were seasonals and were empty. Check in was fine and the campground was easy to find and access. They only accept cash or checks, so happy we remembered the checkbook. There was a nice playground; the kids enjoyed that quite a bit. The owner lady knocked on our RV to remind us that the pool was open, but we were busy with relatives. It was nice she thought about the kids. At checkout (we were trying to leave at 9am), no one was in the office or adjacent trailer so had to call the owner's phone. Wanted someone to come read the electricity meter, but could not get a hold of anyone. Finally, at departure time, as we were pulling out, we ran into one of the attendants and he read the meter. There was no delay afterall, but didn't like that I couldn't find anyone initially. (Only $9 for 4 days for electricity.) Overall, good experience & would stay here again when visiting family in Beaver.
Initially, I was concerned about the other negative reviews and questioned booking here, but turned out fine and it was convenient. There were RULES posted rather excessively (no rugs or anything on grass, etc) around the campground, but we experienced no issues or tongue-lashings; think they just take pride in their campground. - Camping with kiddos

We stayed here with a travel trailer and a tent. They are very unorganized and kept moving us to different sites. They don't want anything on their grass. The owners are not friendly and yelled when our truck went in the grass to make the turn into our spot. They have a swing on the playground that is apparently for handicapped kids although there is nothing indicating that. I was swinging my daughter in it and the owner came over and told me to get her out because he paid too much money for her to ruin it. They charge you extra for your electric usage on top of your nightly fee. There are no activities except bingo and there is one bath house at the front of the park. I would not camp there again. - beaglefamily24

Has the feel of a mobile home park. There are a lot of permanent RVs setup and year round residents here. The roads are narrow throughout the park and were muddy during our 2 night stay here. There lots of pine trees & tree stumps on the RV sites. The park has 5-6 pull-through full hookup sites for overnight guests. The sites are lightly graveled & short. Our 35 ft fit the site but we had to disconnect & angle our truck so it wasn't out in the road. About as far from being a resort as you can get. We won't stay here again. - sbelle55

Directions on website say don't follow GPS but their directions are confusing. They tell you to go west but the sign says N or S.
Site are FHU 50amp, PTH, gravel with grass. They are close but enough room between. No cable but TV over antenna. Playground, pool. No dog run but places to walk. Permanent sites were OK. Fine for an overnight. - jcpjane

Would not stay here again. Power surges over 130 and below 103. Talked to office and their solution was use 30 amp to 50 adapter. Tried to run 1 ac with everything else in rv off power fluctuations all over the scale. - Genecolleen

Very quiet park. Very friendly staff. Wide range of sites available: from open area pull-throughs to shady seasonal sites. There is a fairly large number of seasonal campers, most units and sites appear to be very well maintained. Good TV signal via antenna and excellent Verizon cellular signal. Would definitely stay here again. - rjohnso3a
