This is a small campground with not many sites. This was my second trip to this campground and sadly not as enjoyable as the first time. The sites are very close together and open, but the the campground was not full midweek. We stopped here for one night while driving through and I think a truck rest stop would have had less road noise. Even small vehicle seem to be right outside the camper. The camp host were friendly. Biggest positive note, the dump station had easy access and a fresh water fill hose. We camped at Kooser State Park in a Travel Trailer.
Quite a bit longer than my travel trailer and tow vehicle
This is a small state park 41 total sites (4 full hook-up) including cabins. There are maybe 5 sites that don't look like a ski jump in full sun. You are either badly tilted side to side or very badly front to back. Bring a lot of leveling blocks. There is a long one lane road in and out of the park - make sure no one else is on it if you are towing 4 down -the only pull off is the dump station half way down the road. Bathrooms and showers were well maintained with a washer and dryer available at $1.25 and double sink for doing dishes. TV and satellite are hit and miss based on site. Not much to do in the park except relax and have a campfire. There is a shallow stream (4" to 6" deep) along the low side of the park - I didn't see any fish or wildlife in it. We camped at Kooser State Park in a Motorhome.
The setting is beautiful, reminiscent of some of the state parks in Colorado. Campground is small but pleasant. Sites are gravel, reasonably level. There are four full hookup sites in the campground, all pull-through and closer together. Other sites have electricity only and are widely spaced. Utilities worked well; no Wi-Fi. Plenty of hiking trails in the area, along with a beautiful lake. Forbes State Forest is within an easy walk. Flush toilets and laundry available. This is not the type of place that you would like if you want an RV resort with all the facilities, but it is much more like camping with hookups. The only negative is the road noise. We camped at Kooser State Park in a Motorhome.

We have stayed at this park twice now and have found it to be a great park to tour the Laurel Highlands. Bathrooms are well maintained and were recently updated. They have recently added 4 full hook up sites that are closer together than the other sites in the campground. The biggest downside is road noise and noise from a nearby mining operation.

We have driven by this park several times and wondered what is was like. This is a great find. Love this place. Its clean, quiet and I want to keep this to myself. Seriously if you are in the area give this place a try. The Host is very friendly and runs a tight ship. He is ex-military which explains it I think. We did some hiking here which was great, too. The sites are spacious with space between sites and you get a very nice fire ring and picnic table. Someone mentioned the roads. We found them in excellent shape. We camped at Kooser State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This Campground is alright when there's nothing else around. We were overcharged and the roads weren't well maintained. It's more for people who want to camp and fish more so then those who want to camp and have a nice camp set up. Would not stay there again. The main road was right there as well and you could hear the big trucks going up and down the mountain. This was not our favorite spot. We camped at Kooser State Park in a Motorhome.
