This is your typical KOA park with amenities for the kids: swimming pool, jumping pillow, fishing pond, canoe rentals, playground, and other games on site. Other amenities are a large laundry room, camp store, a pool table in the fireplace room, and dog play area. This particular KOA, including restrooms and showers, is very clean and well manicured. Sites and interior roads are gravel and grass. Sites offer either 30, 50, or 30/50 amps and all appeared to be full hook-ups. There are some seasonal residents in both rv/trailers and some of the cabins, but all appeared to be well maintained and generally friendly and quiet. All utilities were in good working order and our site was fairly level; only needed a little assistance on our end. We camped at Madison / Pittsburgh S.E. KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

A drive into Pittsburgh using Waltz Mill Road Is a lovely drive. I recommend the Frick Historical Center; Home, Carriage & Car, and Art exhibits all take you a step back in time. The Strip for lunch and browsing and The Grand Concourse (the old train station) in Station Square for dinner.

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 S.E. KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

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 S.E. KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Madison / Pittsburgh S.E. KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Terraced campsites, the gravel roads were just a tad tight with a 40' fifth wheel and a hauler. Entrance driveway was steep, but we did not drag anything. Checked in during the day so we did not have any problem with the security gate. Our pull-through campsite was gravel, level and well maintained, with clear view of the southern sky for the satellite. We had to park the hauler perpendicular, behind the RV. The pool was already closed, but the bounce pad was a lot of fun even for adults. The employees were very helpful; park is dog friendly. Propane was readily available. This was our first time in cold weather. Stayed 2 weeks in our toy hauler with 3 dogs. We camped at Madison / Pittsburgh S.E. KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Check in was easy and the staff was friendly. Our site was level, although it could have used some more gravel as after it rained for 2 days we had a mud puddle right at the steps. The Wi-Fi and cable worked great. We would stay again. We camped at Madison / Pittsburgh S.E. KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Sites are on a hillside which means either your patio area is sloping and not very usable, or the sewer hose goes uphill to the drain, not very clever. There is a barrier at the entrance for extra security. There are a lot of seasonal campers but they have their own area out of the way and are not a problem. Staff in the office were very helpful. In the area we visited Fallingwater which was beautiful, and also cycled part of the Allegheny Passage. We would visit again but not at a busy time. We camped at Madison / Pittsburgh S.E.

Easy to find and check in was pleasant. Our water/electric site was long, but muddy, and we needed blocks to level. Wi-Fi worked and cable was OK. It's not easy to see oncoming traffic on exit road, and reentry on the interstate is tricky. This is an OK park for overnight, but we'd not stay longer. We camped at Madison / Pittsburgh S.E. KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground is only adequate for an overnight stay. Unfortunately, we usually stay longer visitng family in the area and this campground is the best of the worst close to our relatives. This KOA has very narrow sites located on a hillside and there is very little room in between sites. We chose a water/electric site because we damaged our rig getting out of a full hook up site. Smaller rigs may not have as much of a problem. Lots of seasonal campers located here. We decided not to use the dump station as it is slanted incorrectly and would not have allowed our tanks to empty. Verizon cell and air card service is good. This campground is not located in Madison, but in Ruffs Dale, PA. I-70 is really weird in this area. There are no acceleration lanes to get on interstate. You have to stop before entering and hope no one runs you down as you come up to speed. We camped at Madison / Pittsburgh S.E. KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

I would recommend staying at the water/electric sites ( #001 through 008). They are pretty level and you don't have to drive very far up the hill. There are activities for kids on weekends, some are free but most cost. There is also a Pancake Breakfast on Sundays for a cost. The Full hookup sites are up the hill and then back down to your site. We camped at Madison / Pittsburgh S.E. KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We live fairly close and visited here for a test run of our new unit. Office staff very friendly and efficient. Camp store was being stocked as this was the first weekend they were open and appeared to have a nice variety. Interior roads leave alot to be desired and need work. Site was a nice size pull thru. Bathrooms old but clean. Nice playground. It served the purpose for us and is a good overnight stop. Would probally have rated higher if the overall appearance was more pleasing.

Nice place for an overnight. Friendly staff guide you your site and help you get parked. It is close to the interstate (I-76 and I-70). Gravel roads are a little rough. Sites are roomy and reasonably level. Nice playground for the children. Fishing available in season. This is our second time here. We camped at Madison / Pittsburgh S.E. KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Seemed overpriced for location. This was a gated campground. Interior roads were narrow. Most sites were pull-throughs and plenty long. The basic cable had good reception but lacked a few channels such as ESPN. (Important during football season!) Our site was level and the campground was very quiet. The pool was closed for the season. There was a small pond with canoes filled with rain water and a jumping pillow. The store/game room seemed well stocked but was located well away from the campsites. Trash was picked up at the sites daily. We'd stay here again. We camped at Madison / Pittsburgh S.E.

Nice park for a one night stand. Good access to/from the tollway (I70). Interior roads are gravel. Sites are of modest size and messy. Needs mowing, picnic table doesn't sit level. Very quiet. Not much else in the area to hold ones interest (that we found). We camped at Madison / Pittsburgh S.E. KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
