1 Park near Transfer, Pennsylvania

Many of the best sites are lakefront, but are non-electic sites. Consequently, many generators in these areas. No water at many of the sites, so fill up before you go in. 330 sites and one dump station (2 sides), so plan your exit time carefully. Bathrooms really need to be refurbished, and the showers are horrible both in layout and cleanliness. That said, the layout of the campground layout is pretty good and most sites are well spaced. Flat land so good for bicycles. There is no official beach or swimming area, but the water is accessible behind some sites. Very good 4 lane boat ramp. Security is excellent and park rangers are always very close. Verizon coverage = 2 out of 5 stars. Several local TV stations available. All electric sites have a GFI breaker on the power pedestal, which has been a problem for some around the campground. - Bama Camper

Single lane registration in front of office. Possible bottleneck for incoming traffic.
The office is shared with the most complete and well-stocked campground store we've seen to date. Very friendly lady checked us in. Escorted to site.
The campground is very hilly. You are either going up or down no matter where you are in this park. Surprisingly level site. No side-to-side leveling was needed for us, however, we did notice many of the seasonal units were using multiple blocks on one side. This park has a ton of seasonal units throughout. Some look well cared for. Others...not so much.
Water pressure was 60 psi. Power was good. Cable was poor. Not sure if that's a problem throughout the park or just a bad hookup at our site.
The wifi signal is weak and how they manage it is disappointing. You are given an individual password at check-in that allows you to access wifi on only 1 device. Do not use your phone on their wifi. The system will detect it and lock you out. If multiple members of your party want to use wifi on a tablet or laptop, you're out of luck. The password registers the first device and will not allow other devices to join using the same password. Hugely disappointed with their approach.
Put on your hiking shoes because you'll need them just to get around this park. We were located where they put short-term campers (400 Loop) and, from there, everything is up hill. Literally. On a positive note, you'll get in some aerobics walking up to the Snack Shack.
The Snack Shack offered a variety of food items. The pizza was decent.
Daily rates are on the high side, but that is something we've noticed with campgrounds that are only open part time. There's a need to generate revenue during the short camping season.
Overall, a very nice campground. We've read many positive comments about Shenango Valley and wanted to give it a try. Glad we did. - The Other John Doe

Updated "weekend sites" with larger, level concrete pads, general landscaping upgraded, most seasonal sites in great condition, fully stocked camp store, large wood fired boiler type heating for the near Large pool, adding considerable new section onto park, promises to be very nice next season or so... - mkekflyers
