7 RV Parks near Templeton, Pennsylvania
Aug 2012 - $35.00
This campground was OK overall. Beautiful location and scenery. Clean Friendly staff. Decent game room. Mostly seasonal and pipeline workers staying there (very few weekend campers). Paddle boat and row boat were out of service. No activities planned the weekend we were there. Early morning heavy equipment noise from nearby strip mine. Lake "beach" was overgrown and not enticing (they are adding a pool this year, though) - Jmark7

This is an Airstream-only park run by a non-profit organization. About 20 sites are available for transient visitors; the rest are occupied by leaseholders. Annual leases are about $600 per year. Non-Airstream owners are welcome as guests of residents or Airstream transient visitors. The transient area is open with little shade, while all other sites are heavily shaded. Verizon doesn't work here but AT&T does. Wi-Fi reaches most of the park. The park is about 4 miles from Interstate 80 near Clarion PA. - silvertube

First, I'm only writing this review because we based our decision to spend the weekend at this resort based on the reviews we read on this place and NONE of them were a clear indication of what we experienced once there. The price for this place and the shape of the "weekender" sites are shameful. I have stayed in nicer state parks. We were in the 300/400 section and not only did our site not have any gravel (you could tell at one time there used to be some) but we were left to try and level our RV with the ruts that were left in the ground from the previous campers. There was also a tent in the site directly behind us that was so far back that it was over into our site and we could not open the back of our camper. When we cooked dinner we literally could touch their tent. But in all honesty, it wasn't their fault, they were put on a full hookup site that looks like it used to be a parking space and the only patch of grass they could put their tent on was on our site! The sites were definitely not big rig friendly as a fellow weekender found out and had his large (very expensive looking) rig stuck twice trying to back into a grass spot. They finally left after having to be towed out TWICE! As we were setting up we notice we have NO picnic table. Their map clearly states that every site would have a picnic table and if you want an extra table it would be a $2 charge. Not only did we not have a table but the 4 sites around us didn't have one as well. As a previous "reviewer" stated there is a HUGE number of golf carts and the speeding golf carts with pre teens/teenagers screaming and yelling at all hours of the night was unbelievable. When we made our reservation we asked for a site near the playground since we are a family of 4 with little kids. They assured me that we were the closest we could get to their "big playground". The 1970's metal playground was a hike and bordered I-80. I will add photos but there was NOTHING my 2 years could play on at this play ground. - Jdrazick

Overnight stay in 26 ft motorhome, no toad. 417 was extra long site. Recent rains made for slightly mushy parking conditions. Large A nearby sunk into turf and needed help getting out before he even parked. Office staff very helpful, numerous amenities. Pizza at pool area very cheesy and good after long trip. - Juddyb

Before staying, I had read the reviews about all the golf cart traffic and dismissed them since the reviews were old. But nothing has changed. We could not go more than 90 seconds without a golf cart whizzing by. Many were driven by underage children. The traffic continued past quiet hours. This was off season so I can't even imagine how bad it is during peak. There is lots of road noise from I-80, but it seemed to be quieter at night and on the weekend. Only half the pond is accessible shore line and you feel like you are in the backyard of the permanent sites. You have to back in sites 66-58. The permanent sites across the road have fences and other barriers up that you have to maneuver around to get in site. Our TT is 24ft and we where across from a side road so we could easily back in, but the people in sites around us in bigger rigs had a heck of a time backing in. There was lots of room to walk the dogs. The view from on top the hill near the entrance is amazing! - JillaRoo

Campground is mostly populated by annual visitors. However the grounds are very well maintained. Mostly grass sites with water and electric. We stayed for two days at mid week. It was very quiet with weekenders starting to arrive on Thursday. Verizon cell signal was strong. There are some shade trees but was still able to get a satellite shot. We did not use the showers, however they appeared very clean. The dump station is easy to navigate.
We would definitely stay here again. - rjohnso3a

Nice park for an overnight stay but I would not like it for an extended stay. We were told that they did not have full hook ups - water and electric only. I did not like the lay out of the park requiring an angled back in. Many of the seasonal sites seemed to be overly crowded. We did not stay to experience the recreational amenities of the park. The owner's were enthusiastic, friendly and helpful. - Dewey Smith

First, this is a Passport America park and they give you half off Monday-Thursday. They also give Good Sam discount everyday! The new owners took over March 20th, 2015 and are working to make this excellent park even better. They are a pet friendly park. They are starting a pet service Monday-Thursday where they will walk your dogs (if friendly). This is a lush beautiful park with an outer ring of back-ins and an inner ring of perpendicular to road spaces. The inner lawn has a beautiful pavilion with a large amount of picnic tables under. This set up would be ideal for an RV club or Dutch oven club gathering, or family reunion. This park has a small lake with paddle boats ($1 per 1/2 hour). They can be very proud of their new investment. After all the discounts for a week here was $174. Every site has garbage can. - DigMyPast

Park was extremely clean and neat. The owners could not have been more accommodating. We arrived after hours, calling them from I-80 to see if they had room for an overnight. We were advised to to pull up in front of the office and wait. (We drove by their house as we approached the office). They led us to our site and made certain we were satisfied and could get settled on our own. While the rest rooms/showers were "rustic," they were well-built and clean. The grounds were very well kept. The spaces were level--which took some effort during construction because the park is located on the side of a hill. There is an upper and lower level. Upper seemed to have more shade trees among the camps, while the lower level, although surrounded by trees, was pretty much open in the center, where we parked. Getting there was an easy drive from I-80. I did, however, drive (slightly) past the entrance because the park sign was only painted on the opposite side. A minor oversight, quickly forgotten by the warm welcome. - Racer and Friend

Ask for a level site. They said all sites were level! Ours certainly was not. We were tired and just slept falling to the right. Laundry is on a covered porch. Restrooms and showers are clean but, rustic/archaic. WIFI is NOT free! Each connection was about $4 per night. Did not do it! And do not like being misled. No cable or air TV. Yes, in the woods and very hilly, if you desire that type of camp. - Sir_Charles395

Rustic Acres RV Resort and Campground is bordered on two sides by state game lands, which means plenty of trails and undisturbed forest just waiting to be explored. When it gets hot, I bring my two dogs down to play in the large creek just down the trail from our camper. Since it is so close to the woods, it's very peaceful and there is often wildlife frolicking around the park; it's not uncommon to wake up and see groundhogs, squirrels, chipmunks, rabbits and birds going about their business right outside our window!
As if the wooded paradise wasn't enough, the campground is also very conveniently located. Wal-Mart, Aldi's, a local butcher, Amish merchants, farmers markets, several restaurants and fast food chains are all just 5-15 minutes away in both directions. Cook's Forest is just 18 miles up the road and if you feel like visiting the city, Pittsburgh is only an hour's drive away!
The family that owns it are very hard working and aim to see their campers happy. We arrived in the middle of the night after a rough trip across the country, and the lady still met us at the brightly lit office and was happy to walk us through the camp's rules and help us get settled in. Throughout the day, the owners can be seen and heard buzzing around the camp making sure everything is going smoothly, while stopping for a chat with anyone who wants to.
They offer really competitive rates compared to the nearby parks (I paid $35/night for 30amp service, but they also have 50 amp service available for $40), and military personnel get a 10% discount!
The only time I recall a power problem was during a thunderstorm, and the owner gave us regular updates from the power company so we knew the status of the repair in close to real time. The sewer lines are very easy to hook into with standard bayonette connectors.
All in all, I highly recommend this place be it for just a night or a whole month! - happycamper28

Large grassy field with W/E hookups, a dump station and a bath house with toilets, sinks and showers. Simple but clean and well kept, and very inexpensive. Close to highway I-80. The only cons - the field wasn't leveled. - TeamGC

Electric is 30a only. Most of the power boxes are old but useable. Sewer good. Water @ 40psi. No Wi-Fi. AT&T Cell Phone ok. AT&T Air Card not very good. Verizon 4G LTE Air Card very good better than expected. No Cable. Sites are in an open grass field. Site Size open with plenty of room to park tow vehicle. Site have plenty of room between them. Road to park is asphalt and narrow. Long way from highway. Didn't use Restrooms but all the fulltime tenants use them. Don't know if there is a Laundry. Long term tenants are around the outside edge and are clean and tidy. DirecTV Satellite is easy access. No Discounts. I made Payment in cash. $20 per night plus $3 if you use air conditioner. This may not be the park for everyone. It had rained hard the night before I got there and had no problem pulling thru to get to a site even though it is all grass. It is off the beaten path and very quite. Lots of open space to walk your dog. If you are there on the right days they have a dirt race track that would be fun to watch. It rained to much for a race when I was there so they did not hold any races. The other park in the area is not as great as indicated and I would very much like to stay here than the other one. - TXBobcat

The sites are large and level. The whole area is all grass and well kept up. There are some mobile homes and seasonal campers, but everything is very neat. It is very quiet there at night. I came and stayed for the races on Sunday night at Sportsman's Speedway which is right across the street and owned by the same people that own the campground. - mrracechaser

I called Gaslight campground the day before I planned to arrive to reserve a campsite. I reserved a 50 amp pull through site. At check in I was told no credit cards accepted because their machine was broke, cash only. That was a problem for me because I use credit cards. I accrued atm fees, but payed in cash. I was escorted to my site, leveled my trailer, put out my 3 slides, and started to plug in. Discovered my electric receptacle was 30 amp, wore out and corroded. (no electric service). I informed the campground office, and was told to move to another site. A lot of work moving and resetting up twice, which was not easy due to unlevelness of both sites, requiring extensive blocking up. My new site had dog poop from loose roaming dogs. Loose dirt, little gravel, sloped over 4 inches side to side. Amongst (pipe-line workers) staying there. Needless to say I left very early the next morning.... ASAP ! - _RAY_

The lady at the desk takes cash only. Keep up with your receipts, she will try and get you to pay again. The water goes off all the time and it is very dirty we had to constantly change our filters. The pool had dead snake in it 3 different days and the pool is open to the whole town and is always dirty. They don't mow very often. This campground was horrible and I have been in some rough places we travel for work so I have stayed all over the US. We will not be back at this place.
Don't go here the campground. Website is not updated. This campground needs a lot of work - kris1

The best things about this campground are the location right off I-80, and the reasonable cost. The office and surrounding area were very messy, stuff everywhere. The roads are rutted and full of potholes. The sites are very unlevel. Nearly every RV has boards under one side to get level and many sites are not level front to back. Sewer connection higher than our sewer opening. Had to move rig to dump.
We were told they had a new wifi system and the owner who checked us in said she would bring us a card with the password shortly. Two days later we still haven't seen it. Water is rusty and water pressure isn't great. We asked for 50 amp but were given a 30 amp site. Power was steady and strong. Verizon cell and data service were very good. - John and Carol
