Big rig friendly full hookup 50 amp super long pull through site B309. Sites in B loop are level enough for big rigs. Checkout time 3PM is great for weekenders who want to take advantage of Sunday. Super friendly reservations, you can shorten stay anytime, and they will refund rest of reservation. T-mobile service excellent. From Breezewood, we took 30W all the way to park entrance on the left. Very easy for big rigs too. During off season, dogs can swim at beach, use common sense. We camped at Shawnee State Park in a Motorhome.

Very nice state park campground on gorgeous grounds. Pros: very long pull-thru asphalt sites, mostly open so satellite works, FHU, nice tables and fire rings, lots of space, ATT/Verizon good, lots of woods and space for walking dogs. Cons: sites not completely level -- the grounds are terraced and they slope a bit, but manageable, no wifi. We camped at Shawnee State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This was our second visit to this park. The office person told us we were on a different site than I thought. I questioned it a few times but finally went to the site he gave me. Someone else was on it. We called the office and were told that, indeed, he made a mistake. We drove to site 45 hitting numerous branches with our RV. The site (a pull thru) was downhill and so unlevel side to side that we couldn't level up. I called the office a second time. They sent a park ranger to our site. He told us he had other pull thrus we could use. However, he had to charge us an extra $15 for the site because it had sewer. At this point I felt they should have just given us the site at no extra cost. We finally settled in after driving around one-way roads with low hanging branches. The site was ok. No complaints about this one. I don't know that we would come back here again. Its frustrating to have a new RV get scratched from low branches. I realize after driving around the park so many times that most of the sites are not level. We camped at Shawnee State Park in a Motorhome.

Kind of expensive but it's a State Park which we love! And the best part is that it has full hookups! This is another beautiful State Park with lots of trees and lots of space between sites...and full hookups! We loved this park. It's very large with lakes for fishing and trails for walking. There are lots of trees but nothing that interferes with RV's. They have planted a lot of new trees too. The roads in the campground are great and easy to maneuver around. This is our kind of camping!! We camped at Shawnee State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The Flight 93 Memorial was nearby and definitely worth the trip. We also drove over to Fallingwater to tour the beautiful Frank Lloyd Wright home there. It's amazing!! The drive over was also beautiful (take the back roads!). We also did a self-guided tour of nearby covered bridges.

This is a beautiful state park with walking trails, biking trails and a beautiful lake with a nice beach and lots of fishing. Unlike most state parks, this park now has a new section (Loop B) that offers full hookups; electricity, water and sewer. Sorry no WIFI. The only negative is that this new section is very close to the PA Turnpike so the noise from the highway is rather loud. Maybe when the trees are in bloom it might be a bit better. The sites are very large and not too close to each other. Most of the sites are pull-through. The forest rangers and park office employees were awesome and very helpful. We camped at Shawnee State Park in a Travel Trailer.

About 15 minutes from the campground there are many little towns. The best of them is Bedford, a real charming little town with nice restaurants and very historical. Worth a trip. Also not too far is the Flight 93 National Memorial. The whole area is just beautiful and worth exploring.

Stayed in Oct, gate house closed, no park map available so we had to guess where we were going. We ended up in a very nice and spacious back in. Had an electric only site. they claim over 300 sites, many are tent only, many no hookup, about 1 third electric only, and the about 10 full hookup. would try to get one of those next time. Must see is the 911 Memorial. Nice hike around the lake. We camped at Shawnee State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

I stayed here for a week and had to move out of the new FHU sites over the weekend. 308 was the best of the three. This park is a bit pricey for a state park but it is a very nice park and campground. Everything worked fine. Trees may be an issue if you use a satellite dish. I recommend entering the CG from PA 96 instead of having to drive thru the entire park to get to the CG. Entrance is immediately past the overpass on the left if coming from Shellsburg. We camped at Shawnee State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Go to visitors center in Bedford for good advise. Good bike trails in the area, flight 93 memorial quite impressive. Some nice shops also in Bedford. Wednesday is farmers market day at the square, in town. Picked up some really good produce.

Nice park campsites that are a little close for some and a lot of space for others. Loops are marked on a map and some signs along the road to help you find your way. Our spot was very good, level grass area with enough room for a smaller trailer and a large truck. There were the average fire rings with a grill on one side. Fire wood for sale but there were plenty of fallen branches dry and ready for a fire. The bathrooms were clean but quite old looking. Showers were not so good, press button for a short bit of water. Handicapped shower was raised up on the floor for wheel chairs but water from that stall would run under to the other stalls. The dump station is among one of the cleanest and best, We camped at Shawnee State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This review is of the new full hook up sites, Loop B, numbered in the 300's. 13 sites on a moderate hillside opened this season (2017) and are very nice. Although there are mature trees in the section, they are not lush with leaves and other trees in the section are dead and need removed, so most all sites are full sun with sparse shade on some sites. Our site was at least 100 ft long. Although not overly spacious, the grass area between sites was roomy enough (estimated 25-30 ft) as to not feel we were too close to neighbors. The pad and small patio are of fine gravel and it was very level. It had a picnic table and fire ring. One of the seating boards on the new picnic table was already beginning to warp. The fire ring was so new, it was still shiny and had no rust. My observation: the fire ring is too close to the side of the RV. With our awning fully extended, the edge of it was over the fire ring. The sites are near the edge of the park boundary and, as such, turnpike noise is more noticeable during the quiet of night than in the interior/more treed sites. Although once inside our coach, it was not heard. These sites are a nice addition to what is already a popular state park. We camped at Shawnee State Park in a Motorhome.

We spent one night here in a Class A towing a car. We picked a pull thru site. The staff was concerned whether or not we would fit. We are 55' long towing, and their computer says the longest site was 47'. I don't know what they are measuring but we fit with at least 25' to spare. The site is brand new. It was very level and the utilities were in the proper place. Navigating to the site was easy. It's a great, quiet place to stay about 10 miles off the turnpike. It would be a nice place to spend several days. We would come back. We camped at Shawnee State Park in a Motorhome.

The rate is the average of the 6 nights we stayed. Weekends are higher than the weekday rates. This is a really nice large state park in a truly gorgeous area of the country! Several picnic areas, beach, lake and many nice trails. Dog friendly with bag stations around the park and several large grassy areas that we found to play catch in when nobody was around. Very quiet during the week, but it tends to get pretty busy on the weekend. With the exception of the new, full hookup sites in the B loop (sites 305-319), I really wouldn't call many of the sites big rig friendly - at least not many I'd be willing to park in. All of the new sites 305-319 are plenty long, with full hookups, but fairly close together and not real level. The best site is easily pull through site 305 being very long, mostly level with a nice large, private side yard. Backin site 314 was also very nice, level and has a private side yard. Our site, 319 was at the end of the loop, so no neighbors, but the road was there, so we had people driving by. On our site, the waste hookup was UPHILL from the site, which obviously doesn't work so well! You are close to the PA turnpike, so you do get road noise off of that, but it wasn't too bad. There are trees close to the road which could use some trimming to avoid hitting larger rigs. We had sattelite reception and good at&t hotspot coverage. We'll stay here again to enjoy this beautiful area. We camped at Shawnee State Park in a Motorhome.

The flight 93 memorial is a must visit! Great displays and coverage of that horrific day. "Gravity hill" is lame, but by all means take a random drive in the mountains, this area is incredibly beautiful. The Johnstown flood memorial is interesting if nearby and Johnstown itself is a cute little town. Ride the inclined plane!

This state park is about 10 miles west of historic Bedford, PA and well worth the few minutes to travel to it. The park offers a big lake for fishing and boating, trails for hiking, and a good campground. It's also near the Flight 93 Memorial National Park on U.S.30, only about 20 minutes west of the park.

There are many historical places in Schellburg and Bedford but our main focus was on the Flight 93 Memorial just up U.S.30. A good place to eat is the Gulf Station Diner on U.S.30. It doesn't look like much from the outside but the restaurant serves great meals.

Great park, there is a large lake with swimming beaches, fishing and boating (no power boats). The camping area is away from all else, there are RV and tent sites, most main roads are paved, RV sites are gravel. Most RV sites are level, gravel and some areas have 30amp, a few have 50amp, most are good size. We have a 42' fifth wheel and can fit in most sites, no water or sewer yet, dump station is very nice. They are adding a new section that will have 16 FHU sites, 14 pull through and 2 back in, very good sized. Expected to be open late 2017. Verizon cell and data were good, no air TV, dish works in some areas. Clean restrooms and showers, over all a nice park. We camped at Shawnee State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Beautiful campground with easy access to outdoor activities, including walking trail, fishing, and kayak and canoe rentals. Our site was private and spacious. Park Ranger came by at night to warn us of a bear sighting. Our only complaint was that the water didn't work at the sewer dump (although they had potable water nearby). We will definitely return!
