8 RV Parks near Washington, Pennsylvania
May 2017 - $41.00
The road into the park is narrow and twisting and steep. We wondered if there really was an RV park at the end. Two of the turns inside the park were tight for our 28-ft travel trailer. Can't imagine coming in anything longer. We arrived about noon. The office was closed but our reservation was noted and a site assigned. However, that site was occupied. We finally choose another open site. When the office opened we were told that site was only available for one night, not the 2 we planned to stay, and we would have to move. We decided to leave the next morning. Didn't really mind the office being closed in the middle of the day but since it was, assigning us to a spot that wasn't open at 11 am when the office closed was inexcusable. The site wasn't very level and many others were worse. The sites are narrow. This park is certainly not what we expect of a KOA. - John and Carol

Access to park is narrow and winding once you turn off the main street in town. The primary drive inside the campground is uphill and very narrow. There were noticeable tire tracks off the edges of the pavement. Sites were close together on top of the hill; however they were long enough for my 69' length and surprisingly level. Lots of rain in the area caused our sites to be a little muddy when walking around. - FOSJ

Be sure and follow the KOA signs along the road. Follow the instructions given at web site. The road to the park is very narrow, but is paved. Wi-Fi worked good and there are lots of TV channels. We had a nice long plu-thru. - gosee

Don't believe previous reviews - nice little campground - safe & clean.
Sadly some people who do reviews don't understand small campgrounds CAN'T have people onsite all the time. This campground only has a couple people a day (at most) coming or leaving so there just wouldn't be any logic to owners being around all the time.
It is a small campground and it is owned by a husband & wife with two kids in college. Owners also have to work during the week so Monday through Friday it is likely you will not see them. There is a drop box for your payment, bathrooms & pool were very clean. Sites were mowed and well maintained but if you are their during the week it is highly unlikely you will see the owners or be able to talk with them in person.
However, both weekends we were their the owners were working ALL day to make the place as nice as possible. We really enjoyed the place and talking with them.
If you are looking for a HUGE campground with hundreds of sites this is not it. But if you like a private setting that is clean and well maintained you will not be disappointed.
I wanted to post a nice review shortly after our visit but I have been extremely busy. So sorry for the delay giving this feedback! - toomanypins

This run down, side-of-road park does not deserve your business. The hostess, when she is around, is rude and totally unhelpful to a first-time visitor. We were returning to the East from an 8,000 mile trip with lots of RV parks under our belt when we picked this one from Woodall's. It does NOT deserve any rating at all. Skip it. - SilverOtter

We reserved a 50 Amp Electric, Sewer, water, pull through site for 9 days. There was nobody here to check us in and other clients told us, "She doesn’t come around much." We had no instructions as to what site to go to, so we searched for a 50 amp pedestal and backed in. The owner/manager finally showed up at 5:10 pm. She was the most unfriendly person I have ever come across. Didn’t bother to introduce herself, seemed annoyed we were paying by credit card, and the word surely would not even be accurate. The first night the main pedestal power went off 6 hours. I will say they replaced the 50 amp breaker in the morning. In the afternoon the power started cycling on and off again. Now fortunately we have the best TRC Power Surge Guard makes, so it didn’t fry my A/C or my TV. It did cause damage to my computer. The manager said, "Oh I'm out of town so there’s nothing I can do. Try moving to a different site." We are both in our 60s and I am disabled so this was not a nice experience. We did it, and the problem was worse. Now the power is cycling off every 2-3 minutes. I could read the display on my Surge Guard so I know the voltage amps coming in from the Pedestal. There is/was nothing wrong with my unit or my RV electrical system. The place smelled of sewer everywhere and trash had not been picked up in quite some time. It was a nightmare. We left 4 days early and the manager refuses to return our calls regarding a refund. - jimhoch

This campground is great for traveling workers but not for a family stay. Very reasonable weekly and monthly rates. Campground is cut into the side of a hill and sites are narrow. Owners are nice folks. We stayed for 2 weeks because our options were limited for staying the area. - nascaron

I stayed for a week in the off season, so the nightly rate I paid reflects that. I didn't use the pool so can't comment on that. Overall, I had a great stay at this park.
My ideal park would have more shade, be more natural, and have more privacy. But even so, this place had just about everything I could need. I enjoyed the excellent wifi, the level gravel sites, with grassy areas around the picnic table, the peacefulness, the cleanliness, and the wonderful service by the owners. I also liked the security, with codes needed to access the RV area and the bath house.
The deep dip in the driveway mentioned by other reviewers seems to have been corrected - there is clearly new asphault, making the area more level. The park was easy to find, with very visible signage, in a great location just off I-70. - CamperChris4

This is an unusual place: a large water park in conjunction with an RV park. I used the RV park just for an overnight in the course of a long road trip. I did not use the water park so cannot comment on it (though it looked inviting!).
The RV area is a large, flat terrace above the water park with a pretty river flowing below. While in a beautiful setting, the campground area is virtually treeless and nondescript. It is a good place for an overnight only, or to camp while enjoying the water park, but I don't see it as much more than that ... and $45 is a little steep for an overnight. (The price including the water park is higher.) - BobbyG2016

The GPS will have you tuning before the RV park so beware. The park has a sign where the GPS is telling you to turn which tells you to go up the road another 400 feet which is helpful. RV park is tied to a small water park. RV park is vey small, maybe 30 sites, all back ins and a little tight navigating. Roads are paved and sites are level, narrow and gravel. Sites have grass and picnic tables. We got some rain one night and the left rear stabilizer jack sunk five inches into the ground. Restrooms are convenient and clean. Dumpster is way down the hill. Small uninviting pond. Quiet yet convenient to highways. Good satellite reception. - VegasVagabonds

This is by far the worst campground there is. I have been camping many years and have never seen anything like this. The roads (ditches) to get to the sites are potholed, rutted and no RV should ever go on them. I was taken to two sites that it was totally impossible to get my 35ft Winney into, then taken to a third site that was flooded because of a water leak some where. I parked on the wrong side of the patio, as I sure could not have gotten into the other side. Then when I tried to hook into water and sewer, there was none. Was asked if I could not go one night without water and sewer. I said no and demanded a refund of my $32. Was told no refunds. I talked to the owner and she told me they would put the money back on my card. Which as of 3 1/2 weeks later they still have not. Please if you are traveling this way, STAY AWAY from this "campground".
By far one if not the worst campground in the USA. - earlhop

I am currently still staying here and will be here until November. My boyfriend and our two children ( 2 year old and 4 month old) in lot 1 we like it here and have no complaints we are actually helping fix the place up so that way the negative comments can stop! It's not that bad here honestly if it was we wouldn't still be here. The owner is an excellent person to get along with and so are the employees! I haven't had rides to get to point a to point b and they have offered anytime i needed to go somewhere! They are not rude at all like most comments say! Yes I think this is a great place to stay if you are wanting a one night stay or monthly! Lots are nice some lots wooded some concrete electric trash water sewage and cable included very nice place
Thanks. - Ashley1215

This is off Exit 11 on Interstate 70. They have a permanent section and a temporary section. The front permanent section looks easy to get into and is close to the office. The temporary section is up the hill and very cumbersome to drive to, rutted road. Let's say, I held my breath. The manager was very nice and led in front of me to show me which spots I could choose from. The temporary area is quite rustic, despite having full hookups. Lots of trees, and great shade. Sites are far from being level. The sites were so out of level, I didn't even bother putting down my stabilizers. I had trouble with my cable connection, it wouldn't work. So, the owner and someone in the next spot over helped to get it working. Let's just say, you don't want to know how they got it working. The manager knew I was traveling alone and didn't have a tow car and said if I needed anything, they would get it for me. The manager is willing to do anything to help you out. I thought that $32 was a bit pricey, but this may be average for this area, and since it was July 4th time, beggars can't be choosers. The manager told me that a shopping area was about half a mile away, but I didn't check this out. I just stayed put in my RV for three days, after holding my breath to get up the rutted road. The manager said it's ok to unhook and go in and out if needed. This is ok for an overnight, but wouldn't use if for a destination. It was pretty quiet during my stay. - DXSMac

Never again! Terrible. In the rear parking lot of a firehouse. Siren went off about once an hour all night. Nearby train whistle all day and all night. To get there, the roads were narrow and twisty. Lots of workers (linemen, oil workers, etc.) with their families. Semi-permanent. - mrpeepers

The campground is about eight miles from I-79 through the rolling hills of PA, not a problem getting there but it is not your typical highway campground. The park is located behind and run by the local volunteer fire department and staying here helps support the fire department. Our site was near the end of the lot and slopped some. The loose gravel. slope, and recent rains made it difficult to level but we made do, as it was simply an overnight stop for us. Some sites are paved and more level, there are even some pull-thru sites. There are no facilities or activities as this is a simply an area to park your RV. Many of the sites had long-term residents who are working in the area. - Dave Hole

We were traveling at night and needed a place to stay and shower, we stopped at the PA Welcome center on I-70 and grabbed some brochures. They were the only answer we got (at 9pm) so we headed there. We were so happy we ended up staying 2 extra nights. The fireman who manages the place is incredibly friendly and extremely helpful. He met us at the front at 11pm and took us back and let us pick a spot. He mentioned that if they had been full, he would have parked me in front of the firehouse and ran power and electric to my trailer. The bathrooms and shower house was pretty new and very clean. They had laundry facilities but we didn't use them as we only stayed for a few nights. Sites were level, water pressure was great and it was so quiet and comfortable there it was a treat. The only potential down side to note is we had no phone service back there, and had to go out to the road to make or receive calls. We will definitely stay here again, they have a monthly rate that is extremely reasonable. - The Bells 412

Be advised that the campground will be on a first come, first served system (and might even be closed altogether) starting June 1, 2015 for much needed repairs and upgrades. $20 per night (regularly $24 per night before senior citizen discount) was for a needed-leveling (6" on our right side) gravel/grass site. We did have 50-amp electric service and there was water available a few sites away. Be warned about the almost backward turn you will have to make to access the road to the campground if you come from the park office. We unhooked our tow vehicle in the park office parking lot and, even then, after pulling all the way to the right before attempting the left turn, we still had to back up once before completing the turn. The surrounding area was mowed grass with a wooden picnic table and fire ring. There were loads of trees in the campground providing shade for most of the day. The perimeter of the campground has been left to return to nature so there were loads of trees, plants (including milkweed for the monarch butterflies and other flowering plants for other butterflies) and abundant wildlife. The night sky is very dark so the stars are brilliant when they peek through the treetops. This campground is located miles from the nearest city so come prepared with supplies. AT&T service was two bars of 4G LTE using our booster and Verizon service was one bar of 1X. We received six over-the-air TV stations and many radio stations. - DD Rolling Ranch

Quiet and isolated. Drive in could be a problem for bigger units. Campsite is on top of a small round top hill. There was a trail that circles the campsite that was actually the boundary between the hunt-no hunt areas of the park, in other words it was the firing line. We passed a couple of hunters during our evening hike. Enjoyed our stay but we were really glad the park office had flush toilets and hot water. - buzzards27

Camped here many times - always F loop for dog. Bathroom cleaned twice a day, older military style fixtures and skylights to keep costs down but clean and efficient restrooms and showers conveniently located. Dishwashing stations are great. This is a great park for tents, tent pop ups and smaller travel trailers. Sites are not level and pads are small but plenty of room between sites. Great hiking trails and nice lake to swim in. Very quiet, wooded sites but airport is close by. Jets didnt bother us. Weekend movies and shows for kids and playgrounds. Walking paths for dogs. No sewer or water at site but dump station clean and easy to access. Potable water is from springs and makes the best coffee! Verizon phone limited, T-mobile not at all. Several digital TV stations near by. Senior discount and a few ADA sites. - tomas_grupos

We are in a motorhome and normally stay in the A loop. This trip, "A, B, C, and D" loops were not open in early May so we had to stay in the E and F loops. I would estimate 80% of the sites in these loops are not good for larger motorhomes. They are simply not sufficiently level or sufficiently long enough. Trailers & popups would be fine, but Motorhomes don't do well when it is necessary to raise rear wheels off the ground to get level! Site leveling aside, this is a wonderful State Park - many activities to enjoy. - AndersonFamily

Electric only; no water or sewer. This is a state park. We had senior discount. Generally clean. Seems everyone had a smoky campfire, which bothered us, but the camp host seemed to think Was normal. I am not sure we would stay here again if we could find a campground closer to location we want. - 1coloradan
