7 Parks near Templeton, Pennsylvania

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

Very clean facilities and, contrary to a couple of reviews, the staff are quite friendly. It is right off I-80 and easily accessible, although the roads are often narrow depending on the part of the campground you are in. The majority of sites are seasonal and most seasonal campers are friendly.
The issue is the teenage population who run unchecked in their parents' golf carts at all hours. On the whole, they are loud, reckless, and drive without concern for those walking along the road and have nearly run me down on two occasions. This stands to ruin an otherwise awesome place and I really hope they can get this under control. Clean pool with lifeguards, passable 18 hole golf course, snack bar, game room and close proximity to Clarion, PA and Cooks Forest. - HmmHaah

It took us three different sites to find one that was somewhat level. We asked if they had a hot tub, were told yes. Well they have one but the water was cold. Now we have to ask if they have a hot tub hot. We would not camp here again. - User1608

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

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

New owners are trying to improve this park. Lots of older seasonal rigs here. Narrow roads. FHU, 30amp, gravel mostly shaded. Playground (small). Very friendly people invited us to the ice cream social & barn fire. Escorted to site. - jcpjane

We chose this park because it was listed as a Passport America park which allowed the weekend discount rate during the month of October. It is also an Escapees park which offers a 50% discount. The owner would not honor EITHER of them! It was very frustrating that I had it in writing from both PA & Escapees but she claimed they were 'wrong'. Getting into the park is a narrow turn and then down a VERY steep hill to get to the lower level where they put the weekenders and transients. The sites were so close together you could hear your neighbor sneeze inside of their trailer. No WiFi or antennae tv. We would probably not stay here again. - RunAroundSue

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

This campground was selected as it is close to the freeway and easy off and on. Previous reviews didn't lend much optimism about Gaslight and many issues previously described are still issues.
The check in was handled by the owner and she was very pleasant and efficient. The office was a bit tired with a few video game machines and a pool table but everything was clean and tidy. The road to the site (which she provided an escort to) was in need of a resurfacing as it had a few potholes and some washboarding.
The site itself was a little challenging to level but with some jockeying back and forth we managed to find a suitable spot. Additionally the site surface was very large gravel which probably would be problematic if you used jacks.
We didn't have any issues with the 50 amp service and did not use the water per other reviews. One thing we expected was a bit of partying as it was a Saturday night, but the campground was very respectful and at 11:00 pm it was quiet hour: and it was quiet. - skiddy

Last time we stayed here was 2005 when the new owners took over. Campground is much nicer now. Camped here with our grandkids. Saltwater pool was clean and refreshing, sites are not level but not that bad to level considering we do not have levelers on our RV. Bath rooms and shower areas were super clean. Have to pay for WiFi. Close to 80 but didn't hear highway traffic. Game room had a good selection of arcade games, pool table with juke box that the grandkids enjoyed playing. This was a weekday so there were no events scheduled for children. Camp store had basic RV supplies, condiments but most of all...plenty of ice cream to keep hubby and grandkids happy. We will camp here again when in the vicinity. - carol

Park has rusty water that comes out of your faucets so don't fill your tank! Listing makes it seem like the WiFi is free, but there's a charge. High rate for the type of park it is. Sites not level and hard to get your rig to level. - Sondkr
