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

Google maps tells you to turn on Woodstown Hwy which leads you to Lemons Road. Avoid that. Stay on Penn Ave (601). Make a right onto Plank Road (4019) and then an immediate right onto Quemahoning Dam Road. This is because Lemons Road is very narrow and winding and not suitable for RVs.
It's situated on a nice lake where you can go swimming. There is a large section with pavilions. It's a pretty small park but pleasant enough. Convenient to Johnstown. You can rent kayaks, paddleboards and canoes. We noticed a wash station outside the bathhouse for tent campers who wanted to wash up some dishes. There is no water at your site. We enjoyed our stay and would return. - Ceil-54

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

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

I cannot say anything good about my stay here. At check-in, the person checking me in treated me like she was doing me a favor. When the reservation was made, we wanted a site near the restrooms, which we got, but the restrooms were closed. Our campsite was littered with cigarette butts and the firepit contained trash. Never say never? If I'm ever in this area again I will look elsewhere. - JBu

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

We needed a campground for an overnight. RVParkreviews showed this campground and another, close by, to have the same ratings. However, this one was about half the price of the other, so I went for this one. A friendly host, a clean campsite, and nice scenery. However, we did have to travel about ten miles or so, over single lane, country roads until we arrived at the campground. Strong, secure internet and clear cable tv. - Lucy7513

Big park so the bath house/laundry and pool are spread out. Part of the park are for permanents. Shopping in Somerset, fuel, restaurants, WalMart, Giant Eagle. Excellent Verizon 4G signal. WiFi available but didn't use. - Iceman567

Stayed for five days in our 5th wheel. All campsites looked very level. We had a beautiful view of the hillside and pond area. Very quiet campground and nice bath house with large, hot showers. My family loved fishing in the pond and fished every day we were there in between sightseeing the surrounding areas. The town of Somerset was very quaint and had lots of great places to eat, we never had a bad meal! The pool was small but kept up well. Visited Fallingwater, Kentuck Knob, and Flight 93 Memorial. The Flight 93 Memorial was not on our original itinerary but so glad we went, as it was very emotional. Overall a very nice camping area that we will go back to again! - Campin Cramers

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

We stopped here without a reservation. It happened to be a weekend when they were having a Bluegrass festival. This campground has a loop for those traveling with pets. We were fortunate to get the last site available. It wasn't the best site. It was not level. It was grass and only had electric.
This state park is the most dog friendly park we have been in. You could walk your dog on many acres of park land and even down to the water in some areas. The pet loop has a very large area in the center to walk you dog also.
They have two dump stations and drinking water available at that location. The park appeared to be very well maintained.
The park is family oriented with a playground, beach, volleyball, kayak rentals, fishing picnic areas and more.
The day we were to leave it was raining. I was unable to pull our trailer off the site as the wheels spun on the wet grass. Park rangers came and hooked onto my truck and assisted me in pulling out. Great service. - petendoll

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

We would not stay here again as most sites are on hillsides and very difficult to back a 38' fifth wheel into. The site they suggested was impossible. We had to use four wheel drive to go up the gravel hill. Then they have these stakes to tell you the site numbers that you must dodge. So we went to find another place as suggested by the front gate. We were half way into the site and a lady runs over to tell us it was a private one. It was not marked that way. We finally found a site and settled in. GPS takes you down a VERY STEEP hill and we found out that we could have not had that experience had we been told to not trust your GPS. Park was clean and quiet. Man at the gate checking us in was very nice. - rolling homeless

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
