7 Parks near Titusville, Pennsylvania

A tight fit on the side roads for a 40 ft MH, and the entrance was one lane with some branches scarily close. W/E fine, but sewer was in an awkward place. Sites are grassy and level with plenty of room between sites. Pool closed available, but it was chilly. We had a pull-through site. They have a game room (we didn't use it). We stayed for family in the area and would stay here again, especially in another site and if they trim up the branches a bit more. - TNBlondie

It is difficult to evaluate this campground. I will mention the negatives first. Coming from Hwy 8, the roads into the campground are quite narrow and gravel. Our GPS did not find the address, so we called for directions. We were here to ride the bike trail but had to drive about 5 miles to the state park for a trailhead. We were in a smaller motorhome luckily. We did not have AT&T nor Sprint cell service, and there was no wi-fi. A few vacant camping trailers at the back of the campground were somewhat unsightly. The owner was very helpful. Although first impressions were not at all good, we did find the park had a pool, play areas, petting zoo, and even a nice fenced dog run. There were many seasonal camper trailers, but they were neat. The sites were grass but mostly level. Other than the happy sounds of a few children playing, it was very quiet. The two mile hiking trail through the forest and around the campground was lovely and linked to the state park. At the end of our 2-night stay, we determined that the rustic flavor was intentional and not all bad. The Oil Valley Bike Trail was awesome. It was paved, level and remote with forest all around. It is surprising that the locals don't capitalize more on their trail to bring much needed funds into this area. We would like to ride the trail again and most likely would stay at the campground again. - busyteach

This park was well kept. We camped in the woods under the tree canopy. The facilities were clean and the staff was helpful. We will definitely be back. - Trinket

This place is absolutely gorgeous and a hidden gem that doesn't seem to be listed on any of the websites we checked. We stopped in the area a few weeks earlier to ride the awesome bike trails and stayed at another campground that was no comparison to this one and it was full. We were one of very few camping here and could not believe it. The campground looks like a state park, only better than many. The lake is beautiful and has a huge swimming area although closed the days we were here because it was the end of the season. The mountains are riddled with hiking trails and the Oil Creek Bike Trail, the Samuel Justus Bike Trail and the Allegheny Bike trail (all paved and rails to trails) are within a few minutes drive to a trail head. We were here short term to ride the trails, but if we were looking for a place to stay awhile, this would be it. We camped near the office just because we didn't have AT&T cell signal for data and wanted to use wi-fi and also wanted a view of the lake since it was so quiet. We were able to extend the wi-fi signal using our Ralink antenna from the office to our motorhome. Most of the sites were in the wooded areas and cozy. They seemed to be level. We would definitely return. - busyteach

We hosted this campground as part of the USACOE volunteer program in summer 2011 and have stayed there many times previously and since. This is a well hidden zero services park on the tip of the Allegheny National Forest, adjacent to the Tionesta river and is even part of the flood plain. For your $10 a night you get a spacious site, most of them are well shaded, half of them abut the Tionesta river, a picnic table, and a fire ring. You get use of a water spigot to fill your tank, a dump station, and a restroom house with toilets and sinks. No water hookups, no electric hookups, no sewer hookups, no WiFi, no cell coverage. Perfect. This is a very popular site among the 'boondockers' and is first come first served. All the sites have level ground and only 1 or 2 tops might give pause to leveling a long trailer. You can easily drive 1 minute to a famous redneck bar, or 3 minutes to a camper store, or 20 minutes to a small town with a grocery store and gas. Otherwise, you are isolated and we try to keep it that way. The wildlife howls at night and passes thru, the fishing is great, and they sky is open. There is a swimming hole approx 5-6 ft deep above the entrance which is usable even in late summer when the river is down to damp rock. The Tionesta river is a drain for the ANF and is fed by few springs or wetlands, hence it can run too shallow for even a kayak. But in the spring it runs over its banks. There is not always a campground host to direct you where to go, but if you have 30-40 minutes to spend you can get to about anything you want. No booze allowed and no fireworks and the sheriff does patrol. This is also located near ATV trails and is a stop for a twice yearly ATV 'tour de forest'. Definitely off the beaten path and definitely worth it. - Ed G

A little difficult getting into, be careful if coming down 36. It sneaks up quick coming down the hill. Nice campground. we stayed in a 39' rig with 3 slides. It was a little tighter than I would have liked, but for the first trip with an upgraded camper, I managed with no problems. Very clean park, full hook up sites. A very pretty area. I will come back again. - Lost_countryboy

This is the best COE campground with full hook-ups. The sites are mostly shady and are spacious. The campground is very quiet and offers a river beach area, fishing along the river, a couple of hiking trails, and biking on the campground roads. A man comes by selling firewood on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. Bathroom shower floors were redone while we were here. This is a very nice campground! Satellite is hard to get and WiFi is not great. Otherwise, it is a great place. - User3710

This is the best COE park we have visited. Sites fairly spaced, FHU, shaded, and easy to get into. Expect to travel 2 lane curvy, hilly roads getting here. Campground sits on Tionesta Creek about a half mile from the Allegheny River. Small grocery store and hardware store in town. - Bamagolfer

Good: beautiful grounds. Not so good: park on grass, no gravel or patio, 1st site not level. They immediately moved us to another site. The security gate although nice to have, was inconvenient. Had to put up $10 deposit for an entry key. You had to leave the camping area to get to the dumpster, store or laundry, then drive back thru the gate to get back to your RV. Water pressure so low you couldn't start 2 washers at same time in laundry. Yellow flies were so thick most of the days that we couldn't sit outside. For the price we wouldn't stay here again. - sdlivingston

Sites are spacious and in a shady area under tall trees. You are escorted to your site and given help parking. On weekends there is a jumping pillow available. There also are pedal boats, catch and release fishing pond, and a nice swimming pool.There is a security gate, and there are rules that are strictly enforced to ensure everyone's safety and enjoyment. When our son, who was camping next to us, encountered some problems, the owners went way out of their way to help. The campground is very nice and we will camp there again when we are in the area. - User3710

This is a city park that was created by the Corps of Engineers. You can find the park on Recreation.gov but you cannot make a reservation. The campground is open between Memorial Day and Labor Day. There is camping allowed prior to Memorial Day and after labor day on an honor system basis. This is a 1st come, 1st served park except for holidays, when up to one half of the sites may be reserved.
This is an old park but it is clean and well maintained. There are 75 sites with 30 amp electric, the rest have no electric. Most of the sites share electric with another site. There is no water in the campground but there is water as you enter the area at the registration hut. There are no sewer hook-ups but there is a dump station which is free to campers. The restrooms and showers are old but are clean and well maintained.
The campsites are paved but old. Most are flat but some have a severe slope. Several of the sites are wet and muddy after a rain. There is a lot of space between campsites. There is a picnic table and fire ring at each site but there are no grills.
The current rate is $27.00 for Electric and $22.00 with no Electric.
The campground website gives more information.
I would have given a higher Value rating if the restroom/showers were modernized.
This was our first time here and it was very pleasant. We will definitely camp here again. - dmoore1108

This is a nice campground if you want to stay off the beaten path. There is room between sites with grassy lots and cottonwood trees that were shedding profusely when we were there. There are many full-timers so it is quiet at night. We had a problem with our power at the site we were given. The manager was gone all afternoon and the person who was filling in for her moved us to a new site after two hours of trying to resolve the issue. He was very helpful but the manager was not very friendly. The Wi-Fi was unreliable and when we finally got connected it was very slow and the connection kept dropping out. Laundry facilities were great. - Ro&Don

Super friendly, warm staff welcomed us and worked to get us all set up including lopping a couple of branches off a nearby tree. Very grassy campground with mostly back-in sites along lovely creek with expansive fields behind. Utility connections were easy, excellent WiFi, superior water pressure, and strong Verizon signal. Nice new laundry machines. Rate reflect weekly stay. - jbrucemagon

We camped here Friday, October 8th and Saturday October 9th in our fifth wheel. The campground is really nicely laid out and all of the amenities were working great. The owners and the staff were very helpful and the other campers that were there were really nice people. This is a great area for kids although the pool was closed there is plenty for them to do. We would return again. - Frances Ann
