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. We camped at Oil Creek Family Campground in a Motorhome.
Tips for other Campers:
This area is RICH in oil history. Eat at the Mosaic Cafe - great value. You can take a 26-mile round trip train ride on the Oil Creek/ Titusville Railroad if you plan ahead-it only runs 3 days a week.

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. We camped at Oil Creek Family Campground in a Motorhome.
As detailed in the previous review, this is a OK campground but definitely NOT a 10. There are only 3 50amp sites that are never available. If you need sat friendly sites make sure you ask in advance. The interior roads are rough, dusty gravel. The sites are grass and dirt. The 30amp electrical is weak under any type of a load. The voltage would drop to 106 volts with just 1 A/C running. Water pressure was marginal, sewer OK. Site was relatively level but you will need blocks under the wheels or jacks to get things level. We camped at Oil Creek Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
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. We camped at Oil Creek Family Campground in a Tent Trailer.
This is a great little campground nestled next to Oil Creek State Park and near all of the Allegheny bike trails. The owners take great pride in the campground and it shows. For the kids there is a playground, fishing pond, frisbee golf, small game room, plus they rent dvds and board games at the front desk. The store is stocked with penny candy also. There are several trails circling the campground and one even takes you into Oil Creek State Park. The Oil Creek Bike Trail is a 5 minute ride away and the Allegheny Bike Trails are about 15 minutes away. The pool was sparkling clean and very inviting after a hot day traveling. Did I mention how great the campground owners were? They both will help you out with any question or issue you may have. The only 2 things that some campers may not like (it did not bother us) was only one 30amp service for the electrical and the dust from the interior roads. We are considering coming back in the fall and renting a cabin. We camped at Oil Creek Family Campground in a Motorhome.
