Pulled into this KOA after a long day on the road because I needed electricity to cool off the TT. Very few CGs in the area. Office was closed so I picked an available site of the list. CG sits on a steep hill! The road from the office takes you to the top of the CG and you work your way down the hill. Site 20 is at the top of the CG. There is a sizable tree right next to the site (gravel) pad. I had to adjust the TT a few times so the Utilities were reachable and I could still open my door. Shared water spigot was on the wrong side and my 25ft hose just reached. Site was level side to side. My electric powered off 4 times due to my surge protector measuring voltage in excess of 133 volts. I stopped by the office in the morning to inform them of the issue (BTW, I wasn't looking for an adjustment). Got into a discussion with the clerk and the owner about that over-voltage couldn't happen. I expected, "sorry about that, we will look into it." This CG is overpriced, hard to navigate to due to the narrow, hilly road from the main road and the worst KOA I have stayed at in my travels. - jnateg

We stayed here last minute on a Saturday night. The sites were tiers on a hill, gravel, and the pad itself was fairly level, but it was very steep between our site and the next, I didn't even have to put my step out, and the provided picnic table was on a serious list due to the steepness. Everything worked well, all hookups were convenient and in good order. Campground is laid out well, though the road to it is a bit winding, as is the case in most of the area there, and it is still right next to a highway interchange, so a good deal of road noise day and night. Bath house, office and laundry were down the hill in a classic KOA a-frame building with a nice looking pool next to it. Bath house was clean and in good working order, though it needed better ventilation. Staff was very friendly and checked me into a site even though I had arrived hours before check-in time. Good for an overnight. - Cyclonic

The facility was almost empty both nights we were there, but the owner was unwilling to make a change to an adjacent site as we requested when making the reservation back in November 2016. The owner was rather unpleasant when we checked in. One of the employees, driving the riding lawn mower, damaged our coach while mowing the lawn adjacent to our coach. It took several hours for the owner to give us the insurance information we requested. - Raemey

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

This is a resort if you want to share a water park with several hundred people. We were staying in place for the Labor Day weekend and since it rained two out of three days it was very quiet there. All the sites are back in but very well spaced and well maintained. The park is very close to the Pennsylvania Turnpike and therefore handy to get around. Wi-if was excellent. - Rd yacht

As a retired veteran I was horrified at the prejudice shown by the owner. He was nice until he physically saw myself and my family. If you are not elderly or your typical white family I would skip this park. We stayed 3 days and during that time it was hit or miss whether the pool and "resort" services were open for use, instead we got a large dose of prejudice, and disrespectful stares and behavior. They definitely charge resort prices and offer a lack of resort services. At least I know I served my country so the owner can practice his prejudice openly.... You're welcome sir! - Chris Harp

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 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

We've been at Firehouse RV Campground for almost 3 weeks now and will be here for a few more months. (Working temporarily in the area). Lots could use leveling, but overall not terrible. Great water. There is a bathroom/shower house with card/keys to get in. Also laundry facility. (did not use either of these). My only complaint is the cell & internet service, but this is not the fault of the RV park. Service is lousy all over the area. Quite often, the RV park wifi is even better than our own Mifi. If you're looking for a "garden spot" to stay, this is not it. If you're looking for a manager on-duty to hang out with, this is not the place. This is an adequate RV park, run by a fireman. It is quiet. Sits behind the Fire Station, in between a cemetery and a funeral home, but you're not even aware of these things. Profits go to help the volunteer fire dept. I do not know the nightly rate. $460/month. A lot of longer term/temporary working people here. We have only heard the fire siren 3 or 4 times in the 3 weeks we've been here. Haven't heard a train whistle yet, just the high pitched squeal of the wheels off and on, but nothing that is bothersome. Within less than half a mile there is a small local grocery store, a post office, a small convenience store that sells both gas and diesel fuel. About 10 minutes to I-79 and Waynesburg, which has several restaurants and a Walmart. (Although the Walmart is well hidden and not found when looking on their web page for local Walmarts). Pittsburgh is about 50 miles north. Staying here in a 41' 5th wheel, with 2 vehicles. - Marty O

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

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

An aging park for sure - narrow roads throughout, but not a problem if you know what you're doing. The website lists the "maximum RV length" as very short, but I have a 26 foot TT and backed clear up to the wheels hit the curb in the site, and had no problem once I was unhooked. Very nice park, would stay here again in a second. The only real negative that I can say about the park is it's proximity to Pittsburgh Intl Airport, I love watching planes though, so it wasn't a problem for me! The other thing is that the "playground" for the kids is a sorry excuse for a playground. In all though, a nice park. - brian19889

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
