IGNORE YOUR GPS: Do not go down Lemon Road. It's rutty, narrow and a steep downhill. We found a better way. From 219: Take South 403 about half a mile. Bear right onto 601 South and go about 1 1/4 miles. Turn left onto Plank Road (Look for Stoystown sign on left.) Make an immediate right onto Quemahoning Dam Road. Go about 2 1/2 miles. Entrance sign is on left. It's easy to miss. Down low about two feet off ground. Can't read it until you turn in. If you are coming from the other direction, it's on the right and easily viewable. There is no check-in procedure. You pull in, drive down a gravel area and make a right into the campground through the cattle gate. Then you find your site which you were given when you reserved. There is no water on site, although there are spigots around to get water. You have electric at your site. The sites are close together and on dirt/gravel. There are two bathhouses but one is at the entrance for the pavilions and there's one in the campground but near the cabins. If you need to use a bathhouse, it will be a bit of a hike. There is a beach with a swimming area and you can rent kayaks, paddle boards and canoes. There is a large picnic area with pavilions and a playground. They have a dump station but it's not marked and we walked all over trying to find it. It's also not listed on their map. We finally found the pipe sticking out of the ground next to the bathhouse at the upper end of campground. No wifi but decent cell on T-Mobile and AT&T. - Ceil-54

We chose this campground because it's not far from the Flight 93 Memorial. Coming from the east, Route 30 is one hilly road. Once we turned off Route 30, the road really narrowed and it would have been impossible for two RVs to pass. Cars and trucks either backed up to a wider spot in the road or pulled off as much as they could. Once you see the Family Camp sign and turn right, you're in a public use beach parking lot. You have to turn right onto the paved road thru the "cattle gates". There is no sign or office. Your confirmation email serves as your car pass. Once inside the roads are paved. Our site was very roomy and overlooked a wooded area and the water. There's no Wifi, water or sewer although we did have AT&T reception. Not very crowded mid week but it looks like it could be popular weekend spot. Wouldn't recommend it for an overnite because the road access is slow and demanding. Picnic table and fire pit. Lots of trees. Easy water access for swimming or watercraft. Overall very nice. On the way out the GPS took us on a different route which seemed shorter and better. They did respond quickly to a site request online but there is no one to help when you arrive. - Team Asphalt

The park manager was very personable and accommodating! He actually took us right to our spot and moved around the picnic table to best suit the setup. The swim area was great -water was reasonably warm for beginning of June. The dam is very pretty! They do not allow gas engine boats -- which was perfect for us. We have kayaks so it was nice and peaceful for my husband to be able to take our 2 year old to fish. I would highly recommend this campground. Relatively small place with minimal store essentials. Also, electric is the only available hookup. No sewage or garbage disposal at campground. - ashleymcdavidson

Very small, unlevel sites on soft ground (mostly grass with a little gravel), 30 amp electric (no 50 amp). Utilities are at the very back of the sites, so you may need extensions. Most of the trailers look like long-term low income housing. Several trailers were empty, rusty and abandoned. Campground is run by a sweet very old lady. It has a small pool that looked clean. We did not use the pool or public restrooms. At $38 a night, we wish we had looked into some of the nearby state parks and campgrounds. Since we were only staying for one night we went ahead and "bit the bullet" and stayed. - lauraslytle

This is an old run down park with mostly seasonal campers. We made the mistake of paying before seeing the shower house. Previous reviews are a little on the "kind" side for sure. Washrooms and showers were filthy and disgusting. Luckily the elderly woman who runs the place gave us our $30.00 back and we found another campground. - shlemon

Very basic, no frills little campgrounds. 95% seasonal. The seasonals are friendly enough. A very sweet older lady runs the place by herself. Not the place to go if you want activities, games, etc. Lots of shopping and other things to do in the general area. - blondieemtp

This is a small campground with not many sites. This was my second trip to this campground and sadly not as enjoyable as the first time. The sites are very close together and open, but the the campground was not full midweek. We stopped here for one night while driving through and I think a truck rest stop would have had less road noise. Even small vehicle seem to be right outside the camper. The camp host were friendly. Biggest positive note, the dump station had easy access and a fresh water fill hose. - JGS

This is a small state park 41 total sites (4 full hook-up) including cabins. There are maybe 5 sites that don't look like a ski jump in full sun. You are either badly tilted side to side or very badly front to back. Bring a lot of leveling blocks. There is a long one lane road in and out of the park - make sure no one else is on it if you are towing 4 down -the only pull off is the dump station half way down the road. Bathrooms and showers were well maintained with a washer and dryer available at $1.25 and double sink for doing dishes. TV and satellite are hit and miss based on site. Not much to do in the park except relax and have a campfire. There is a shallow stream (4" to 6" deep) along the low side of the park - I didn't see any fish or wildlife in it. - Grayhound

The setting is beautiful, reminiscent of some of the state parks in Colorado. Campground is small but pleasant. Sites are gravel, reasonably level. There are four full hookup sites in the campground, all pull-through and closer together. Other sites have electricity only and are widely spaced. Utilities worked well; no Wi-Fi. Plenty of hiking trails in the area, along with a beautiful lake. Forbes State Forest is within an easy walk. Flush toilets and laundry available. This is not the type of place that you would like if you want an RV resort with all the facilities, but it is much more like camping with hookups. The only negative is the road noise. - Dashonthedash

Stay here every year for family reunion. Nice park easy to manuever 38 ft motorhome. One thing i wish all campgrounds would offer is non smoking sites, cigarette butts everywhere, fire ring used as an ashtray. Disgusting!!! - Mgee

Nice campground, stayed here off season during the extreme flooding taking place all along the east coast but it appears to be well kept, sites are large and spaced nicely. Will definetly stay here again. - Mgee

No way this park deserves the current 7.9 rating - my opinion, the only way it gets it is because it has lots of activities. When you first pull in everything looks great, but then you get to your site... Interior roads are narrow and a mix of old asphalt, crushed stone and mud. The site itself was very small, a tree so close we can't use an awning, covered in cigarette butts, fire pit full of trash, wi-fi non-existant. We asked for a site near the bathhouse, and we weren't too far away, but what's the point when it's closed down - they didn't bother to tell us that when we checked in. It rained a lot while we were there (no fault of the campground) and several of the sites were extremely muddy, including ours and the one next to us. That didn't stop them from trying to squeeze someone in though - you'd think they'd get the hint when the second person asked for a different site because of the mud, but no, they kept sending folks over, even though there were several other sites available. We will not be back... - Homey1992

Clean campground, friendly staff. Most important: beware of narrow bridge into the campground. It is plenty strong, despite wooden surface (It is really a sturdy concrete structure.) When going over bridge, DO NOT TURN WHEEL UNTIL FULLY CLEAR. Otherwise, your tail will swing and smack the rail. Just saying. - Charisma1965

This small campground is located in a rural and beautiful area. The small lake and a trout stream that runs through the property kept the fishermen busy. Our site was a level back in right next to the stream. There was even a small waterfall right in our shady backyard. The owners are pleasant, friendly and very knowledgeable about the area. Customer service was great. Grounds are very well kept and public areas are clean. Bathrooms are very outdated and are on the list of these new owners plans for improvement. In addition to the fishing spots there are open fields perfect for a kickball game, a playground, horseshoe pits, and a community building and game room. The campground is gated. - Bonnie Lee

Overall this is a fairly nice campground. We were parked next to a stream that seemed very tame until the monsoon hit. I watched it continue to rise and eventually called the manager (not on site). She said that it would have to rain for 2-3 more days before the stream overran. It was only at one foot from the top so I have doubts about that. Rain stopped two hours later and all was well. Trees were a problem with satellite, and cell was questionable. Rate reflects Passport America. - keydet

We where staying there with friends who had a motor home. When they pulled in sunk in the mud. Was told the sites had been redone. Obviously had not been packed down well and was all gravel. When made reservations was told pets welcome. When staff knocked on my door acted like my dog was going to attack. It is a lab and wouldn't hurt anyone. He barked when they knocked on the door. Was treated very poorly by staff. We intended to stay 3 nights, we stayed 1. - Theresa L

Our experience was great... So peaceful, large area for our 33FT travel trailer and room for our large pickup! Host & others very helpful & polite.
Not like KOA & other campgrounds that are so jammed pack with people & campers..
We will be back this year if we can make it. - Mary and Roger

We left as soon as we saw what the campground was. Manager was going to charge us by the foot since we were over 26 feet but since we had already been quoted a price, the manager stuck with the original price. This is no place for a big rig or RV. I wouldn't recommend anything over 30 FOOT - the sites are shallow and is more set up for seasonal than for weekend camping. The transient spaces are not well defined or well kept. We couldn't find a decent place to set up so we had to scramble and find a near by state park and didn't stay. The owner charged us for a full night anyway even though we didn't stay and we couldn't fit the way we needed. The only good thing about the whole experience is that the lady was nice. Although charging us a full night was a little bit much. I'd say $10 would have been sufficient for the trouble. Again this is not for large RVs and is very tight - visual surroundings not very stimulating either. WE DID NOT STAY. - receveur

Very well maintained & beautiful campground in a farm country setting. Plenty of room between sites. WiFi sometimes good sometimes slow. AT&T 5g/4g. We used the new Rt 219 from MD. Very nice road on PA side. MD side not new but okay for our big rig. - Lizz

Great campground. Showers, restrooms, laundry and the pool were spotless. Services all worked fine. WiFi was slow. The location is a few miles from the Penn Turnpike out in the hills but we'll worth the sort drive to get to. Beautiful , very quiet, with a top shelf staff. - docsouce

Recently they upgraded around a dozen sites to full hook up however the designers evidently never had an RV. The pull thru sites were made on too tight of a radius for anything larger than a popup, and all of the sites are out of level. The state of PA has outrageous pricing. The FHU sites are in the pet section so you pay the $2.00 additional per night pet or not. Other than the above the park itself is one of the nicest in PA. Warning - On the electric only sites the power fluctuates, the wiring is ancient. You take a chance of burning up your AC or other electronic items when the park has higher occupancy. Some electric only sites were upgraded but not many. - Ulysses E McGill_The Paterfamilias

We stayed in the dog loop, which was mostly full and the rest of the park empty. When will PA change??? #81 & 80 were the best sites. Full service was at the bottom of the hill and the pull thru sites not too level or shady. Might go back in the fall? - 2labsacamping

We spent 3-nights here at the end of Sept, 2016. It's a large state park that's very forested and pretty. We had reserved a lovely Full-Hookup site at the top of the hill bordering a huge grassy field. But try as we might we could not get level - front to back or side to side. Others that arrived at the same time had similar issues so we all worked together to find other available camp sites to get level.
When we arrived on a Sunday all the park offices and check-in shack were closed.
The bathrooms here are older cinder block buildings that had been through some rough rains recently with lots of dirt and water deposited inside.
So, to us this State Park is a mixed bag. It is very pretty and in a nice part of Pennsylvania and seems to be a very popular park for people living nearby. Our experience wasn't that pleasant.
As a plus, the Flight 93 memorial is only about 30-mins away and is a must see. - Creativepart

All back in sites and all W/E. The site was level and had good water quality and good electric. Offers WiFi and Cable at each site. They have the normal activities: mini golf, pool, tennis, shuffleboard, bocce ball, basketball, volleyball. We stayed one week to see the sites around the area. Was private until someone pulled in next to us; their picnic table and campfire was right behind our trailer so no privacy. Did not like that. I found a trail into the woods where I was able to walk the dogs, beginning in the new sites area and ending behind the basketball court. - Kerch Family

Pass through park on our way home. Was very nice in shady areas. This park is in the mountains and rustic area. Will definitely use again. - Dkkirkland

Roaring Run is deep in the woods, so if you like peace and serenity, you will probably like it here. The amenities we liked were the pool, mini golf and bocce courts. Our favorite activity was to head to the adult lodge, which has leather couches and chairs, big screen flat TV and games. It felt like a cozy, woodsy library. Definitely check it out if you are over 18 and camping there. - josie7

Disappointed with this campground! Sites were muddy. There was no cable despite the Woodall listing. The bathrooms were dirty. Would not stay here again! - Ehux123

PROS: large, clean pool, large updated playground, alot of activities planned on weekends, large stocked fishing pond, Good Sam discount and all activities including fishing are free to campers CONS: No cable or WIFI, sites very close together, power goes out when AC is being used by too many transients, children unsupervised on bikes, golf carts and ATV's throughout park - blondieemtp

We camped with our 5 and 3 year old grandsons and they really enjoyed the playground, especially the huge, toy filled sandbox. We also used the outdoor pool as well as the indoor pool. This campground is about 13 miles from Idlewild Park, a mile from a zoo, and a mile from the PA turnpike, so it is well situated. But, the campsites are on the floor of a valley and when it rains the water sits on top and you are left with mud and/or ankle deep water. If you use this campground, make sure it is in dry conditions with no rain in the forecast. - rvrose
