Very nice KOA. Playground, jumping pillow, fishing lake, etc. The campground is a bit hilly. The site was not level side to side, so I had to use the leveling blocks. But it was otherwise very nice. Spacious. Good picnic table and fire pit. The bath house was close by and it was clean. It was a bit rustic, but it was very suitable. We stayed there for one night on the way back from a two week trip, but we would stay here longer if we came through this way again. Its a very nice campground. The staff was incredible friendly. They had a pirates weekend, so the staff was all in costume. They had an ice cream social the night we were there, which was very nice. Good place to stay. We camped at Madison / Pittsburgh SE KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Sites are not level, not even close. After bending my rear jack and tripping the hydraulic breaker I moved to another site. Managed to get almost level and found the dump connection a foot up a hill from my dump outlet, would not drain. Poor cable. Shade is good and park is scenic but needs some site work. Worth about $12, not $45. We camped at Madison / Pittsburgh SE KOA in a Motorhome.
Nice RV park in the hills but don't if I would stay again. I don't care for the roads in the park. That are gravel and the park is very dusty. My estimation is the park is over priced for the product they offer. The WiFi was great and the sites were level. I am not sure who designs these parks but almost everything is facing south which means you get a hot afternoon sun when you try to sit out. We camped at Madison / Pittsburgh SE KOA in a Motorhome.
This was an overnight stay as we traveled from Ohio to Virginia. There are not many RV parks in this part of Pennsylvania, and there was no alternative based on our route. It was a little tricky to maneuver in a 40' motorhome, as the roads are quite narrow and hilly. We did not use the facilities, so I can't comment on them. The rate quoted is the KOA rate without discount. With the KOA discount it was $49.50, which still makes it overpriced. We camped at Madison / Pittsburgh SE KOA in a Motorhome.

A nice park about 45 minutes outside Pittsburgh not far from the Turnpike. A convenient staging area for those coming from the east visiting Pitt. Sites are on a hill and the tiered arrangement makes for some narrow spots. Staff is very friendly and helpful and accommodated a last-minute scheduling request that allowed us to visit family in the area for a longer time. The park improved over last year, where construction to expand the campground was a nuisance. For early in the season, the complex is looking good. We camped at Madison / Pittsburgh SE KOA in a Motorhome.
Tips for other Campers:
The campground's large jumping pillow is quite entertaining for children of all ages.

This is a great easy on/off highway campground. We were here just for the night and it was perfect for that purpose. We had a nice pull through that allowed us to stay hooked up with our 40' RV and even parked our additional car behind us on the site. It is mostly seasonals/long term from what we could tell. We did not find too much traffic issues inside the park except of course in the morning and evening as they were coming to and from work but was not a concern. Water pressure was good, WiFi was good. We did not hook up cable so we can't speak to that. They had a nice grassy fenced area for the dogs which is a plus. The staff was helpful and pleasant. We camped at Madison / Pittsburgh SE KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
We camp with small children and a dog in a motor home. pros. 1. Some of the employees were nice 2. It is relatively cheap. 3. Some things for the kids to do. (playground, jump pillow, swimming pool.) They also had an activity. The cons: 1. This place was dirty - There were a lot of leftover waterlogged socks near the jump pillow from previous jumpers. Also, I noticed lots of cans and trash scattered throughout the park. 2. There are a lot of seasonal campers that seem to work for the natural gas company. They drove their huge pickups quite fast down the gravel roads. Also, at 5AM the campground became quite active and loud. 3.We were approached by one of the employees on a golf cart with another camper in tow. She demanded to know what time we were leaving (at 10:30 in the morning.) I told her about just before noon. Apparently, there was a mix up and they had double booked our site. There were numerous other open sites around our area. She had the next campers pull into the open site NEXT to ours but would not let me set up there. They had to wait until we were gone to move into our site. The whole time they kept giving us dirty looks but we were paid and intended to let our kids have one more jump on the pillow. We needed somewhere to double check some things before we head out on an extended vacation and this place served it purpose. I would not come back here for anything else though.

Staff very friendly. Sites were not level. Interior roads could use some work. Wi-Fi was spotty. Water pressure was low. Lots of traffic within the park, cars coming and going. Good for overnight stay. We camped at Madison / Pittsburgh SE KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Slow time of year, no one at office, Glad I purchased over the internet. Park is on a hill, but set up so most of the sites are level. It's been rainy so the campground is wet and muddy, typical for the northeast. I would not stay here again. We camped at Madison / Pittsburgh SE KOA in a Travel Trailer.
Relatively nice KOA. Sites were rather close together and set in trees on gravel pads. Length was questionable as we had a 40' 5th wheel. Trailer and tow vehicle had us edge to edge on the site. Park is extremely hilly. We barely fit in the pull through site they assigned to us. Sites are relatively level considering the terrain. Did not use bathroom or shower facilities. Pool looked nice but didn't use. Husband did fish in pond but didn't catch anything. We did see a guy across the pond catch a rather large fish, probably 12-14" in length. Water pressure seemed ok. Electric was fine too except it was closer to front of site instead of rear where our electric cord is housed. Nice mini store with ice, playroom/game room, and a few basic necessities. Staff was very friendly. Just off I-70 and easy to get to. Park roadways are narrow and gravel, turns are tight for big rigs. Very quiet at night except for the occasional 18 wheeler using exhaust brakes. Appeared to be several seasonal folks. Kids on the jumping pillow were a little rowdy but otherwise park was nice overall. Would probably stay again if just passing through: though it's a little pricy.

I had previously reviewed this campground last year and I am downgrading it. This year the park has new owners and there is lots of construction. They are putting cable and sewer in at more sites and a fenced dog run so the whole area is torn up with construction and that has made the lake muddy. All the transient workers have been consolidated at the upper end of the park, leaving us true RVers at the sites closer to the activities, which is nice. Even though their website says they have an ice cream social on Fridays and pancake breakfast on Sundays, those events were canceled for the weekend I was there and the workers seem to believe those events will not be happening often. They eliminated the game room in favor of a laundromat for the transient worker population. The pool and bouncy pillow are still there and great fun for the kids. The staff, some of whom I remember from last year, are as nice as ever. I'm glad they are upgrading the sites and adding the dog run, but the campground looks a bit like a construction zone. The sporadic nature of their 'regularly' scheduled activities is disappointing. I'm hopeful that the if I return by the end of the summer the campground construction will be complete and I will be able to give the campground a better review.

Decent place to stay when traveling through area. Staff was friendly. Park is very congested and hard to maneuver around. Park was full of people who were working in the area. Alright for one night but expensive for what you get. We camped at Madison / Pittsburgh SE KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Looks like this isn't a campground, but long term residence for working at natural gas fracking sites. Sites were tight and the place didn't feel inviting at all. We camped at Madison / Pittsburgh SE KOA in a Travel Trailer.
