Definitely not top of the line RV Park, but was suitable for us for a couple nights. Manager was very friendly and helpful. The place needs some cleaning up and maintenance. Had a hard time finding our sewer because the cap was sitting one place and the sewer was covered in leaves. I had called the manager, and he immediately came over, but we found it right before he got there. He noticed the trash left by the previous tenant and immediately picked it up. Uneven ground, so had to be careful walking around when off the concrete pad. Previous tenants had built a patio area between two lots, but it was very wet, and the wood was sagging. Not safe to walk on. We were able to park in the lot next to us. Manager stated that from March until Thanksgiving this year (2017) he didn't even have room to put a pop-up camper because all 70 spots were full with workers for the refinery being built in the area. With some TLC and a bit of elbow grease, this could be a really nice little park. I did like that the manager realizes sometimes the spaces require getting your vehicle off into the grass when you are trying to back in. He said that was no problem....the grass will grow back. The lots are sitting at odd angles, which made backing in more difficult. Some lots are very close together, others have more room. We stayed for two nights to get some work done on our truck. Concrete pad was stated to be 40' long, and our 41' RV fit just fine. If we'd backed up further, we could have had our truck in front of the RV while disconnected too. I'd say the pad was closer to 50' long. Not our worst experience, but far from the best. We camped at Rocky Falls RV park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
Anything you need is within 5-10 miles.

Manager was very friendly and helpful. Propane refill on-site which was a huge plus. Signs showed prices of $30/night, but rate was $40. (I mentioned they need to update their signs). Stayed in the lower lot. Recently graveled, but needs to be compacted. Not level....had to manually level our RV because the auto-level wouldn't work. I can see where in rainy times, this area is going to be a mess. Lower level now has full hook ups...50 & 30 amp, water, & sewer. Trains right across the river, but they weren't that bothersome to us. Lots of full-time/worker RVs in the upper lots, and they were all back-in. Lower lot has pull thru's which was great for our 41' Fifth wheel. They are working on more the sites on the lower level to add gravel and 50 amp service (per the manager). Stopped for one night, stayed for two, due to bad weather between us and where we were heading. Not the best campground we've stayed in, but certainly nowhere near the worst either. We camped at Jim's Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Firehouse RV Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
