The sign for the campground was easy to spot. This place is Very WELL MAINTAINED! The office/Gatehouse is at the front entrance! The lady who checked us in was super nice and friendly after check in two workers got into their golf cart to show us our site. Nice site (the lanes were a little tight for a 41 ft 5th wheel but do able). They helped us back in like a pro's! Site was great! This place is I would say 75% seasonal sites. I like that there is not a turnover of campers. The seasonal camp owners we met to said they had been here many years. The seasonal campers take pride in here their sites and make them look amazing. The staff.....SUPER AWESOME! I think the outside pool is the biggest we have ever seen!( It is like 1/2 of a football field in size. The inside pool could be a litter cleared. Lifeguards were on duty when we were there. The arcade was nice as well as the jump pillow and mini golf. Our kids had a blast. People have fun cruising the campground in their golf carts. We would and are planning on a return visit! PS: the fireworks were AWESOME as well as the Saturday night entertainment. ( Which was all included in the cost.) - WVRVGrandparents

I am doing this review from perspective of a transient camper, as compared to a seasonal one. This park is obviously focused on serving its seasonal customers more than travelers, and it appears that the seasonal folks really like it. But I would not stay here again if I was passing through area. Negatives first: -Required to pay in full at time of reservation, and no refunds are offered if you need to cancel, only a credit to a future stay. -The mostly-gravel (with some grass and mud) sites in the transient area are pretty close together, on narrow gravel roads barely wide enough for a trailer, and minimal maneuvering room opposite your site. Plus, after heavy rains (which was case for our visit), many of sites turn in quagmire of mud and puddles. As an older review mentioned, I needed to switch truck to 4-wheel drive in order to get into site. -Once I got RV into site, there was zero space for truck, and no nearby parking area. I was able to use a nearby site because the campground transient area was not crowded when we were there. If campground is full, maneuvering here in anything 30 foot or over would be horrendous. -The bathroom/shower facilities have very limited capacity considering the size of the campground. -Kids and families on golf carts drive around and around and around the roads endlessly On the plus side: -Staff was friendly and helpful in our limited interactions, and saw them go to great lengths to assist bigger rigs squeeze into tight spots while we were there. -Grounds and bathroom/shower facilities well maintained and cleaned. -Lots of amenities, like a mammoth outdoor pool, an indoor heated pool, mini-golf, arcade/game room, basketball and tennis courts, and a laundry, which we did not use but looked clean. -Good hot water in showers, but with low water pressure. -Sites had fire rings and picnic tables. -Good Verizon 4G coverage here, but no useful WiFi Bottom line: not to our tastes, maybe it will be to others. - We Roamed and Rambled

From the directions off the turnpike to driving in you will like this place! The sign off the road was very easy to spot. The first impression WELL MANICURED, WELL MAINTAINED! The office is right at the front gate super easy! The site we reserved had to be switched due to a last minute 400 tent campers. The lady who checked us in checked us in and got into her golf cart to show us our new possible site. Nice site (the lanes were a bit tight for a 32 ft trailer). She helped us back in like a pro! Site was great! Side to side was dead nuts on and we just had to level front to back. This place is I would say 80% seasonal sites. Personally I like that there is not a huge turnover of campers. The seasonal camper owners I talked to said they stayed there several years. The campers put HUGE effort and pride to make their sites look amazing. The staff.....AWESOME! We tried to melt our camper cord at the post. I went to the office and they sent the electrician. Maybe 10 minutes passed and I went to the RV store 10 minutes away. By the time I got back he inspected and reset the circuit I tripped, now that's service! ENORMOUS I think is how to describe the outside pool! Inside pool could be a bit better lit but our kids had a blast. A lifeguard was on duty both nights we were there. The bingo was PACKED! It is a real sense of community there. People have fun cruising the campground in their golf carts. I would, am going back! - n3qdz

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

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

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

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

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

This campground is definitely a one night stopover only. Roads are paved but sites are either gravel or packed soil and most are not very level. Lots of trees so no satellite but there is cable which was usable. Lots of permanent resident sites that are very unsightly. The worst part was the bathroom. It was probably the worst I've ever encountered in a campground. Nasty would be a nice description of it. It was very old, sinks were rusty, commodes were stopped up and showers were terrible. Electrical was OK but water pressure was low. They did have a rather nice pool although it was small. Would not consider staying there again unless absolutely no other choice. - RonaldS

The camp ground is beautiful with nice trees. There is a pool but we did not use it as we were here only overnight. All the spots are gravel and pull through but not very level. The utilities were good but water pressure varried a bit. The owner showed us to our spot and was very friendly. I thought the price was high for no amenities other than a pool. - esta34950

Fall camping in Penna means chilly, wet weather and falling leaves. Donegal Campground is easy to find. The owner is as sweet a person as you'd ever meet and lives in a doublewide right on the premises. Wifi is limited but cable, water, sewer, electric were all in excellent working order. The owner takes you to your pull through site and helps guide you in - perfectly level! Bathrooms and showers are close by, clean and comfortable to use. Some permanent sites up on the hill and somewhat secluded. Great restaurant with duck pond close by. Verizon and T-Mobile phones worked fine at this campground. We will definitely camp here again in 2017. - tomas_grupos

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

Totally shocked at the condition of the park. Drove around (large park) - many trailers were not in good condition. Blue plastic covering them, decks falling apart and lots of trash. A couple people we talked to said they had no water for days as pumps were broke and not able to be fixed for a few more days. Friday & Saturday nights loud, terrible music filled the campground until past 11 pm. Little kids driving golf carts & underage drinking...it is like a section 8 housing with a slum lord running it. Was glad to leave. - joe8903

I agree that some of the older reviews are scary, and I was really worried about staying here, but the park isn't that bad. I will, however, say that we were placed in a permanent site, that the previous owner had left some cables, lights, a shed type building, and hoses. So this wasn't great for us. The site did have new gravel added, which I expect was because of our arrival. The site was pretty run down, but it did have water, electric, and sewer that all worked fine. We were across from the bath house, which my husband used. He said it was old but was clean, but it also did not have any soap, towels, or hand dryers. When we check in, the staff was pleasant enough, but did not tell us anything about the park or activities. They had a DJ Friday night, which we could hear the music from our site, and also bingo in a big hall they have, that we only found out from walking around, and just happening upon it. I have no idea if they had anything else scheduled for the weekend. A lot of the locals do have the golf carts and are driving around a lot. They had a few lakes, but the water all looked very green. We did not have a problem with any of the local residents, though we did feel a bit out of place camping in the permanent area. But they did come out to help another camper (not local), who was pulling in right during a rain storm and their truck got stuck in the mud. The local guys came out and hooked up their own truck to the camper to help get it in the site level. This is a very large park, which mostly seemed to be permanent sites (as we were put in that area), and the 'weekender' section seemed small. The roads are very tight in this campground, and a bit confusing to navigate at first. We had a bit of trouble finding our site. We also did not have a picnic table. The place was OK, but I probably would not stay here again. - Camper_Girl

This is a very nice campground. Mostly permanent campers with a few passing through. Over the last 2 years the campground has been cleaned up and updated by the owners. The Management has really step up to the plate to get away from the bad reputation this campground had and is doing a great job of cleaning it out and up! Many new activities have been offered and campground also offer co-pay for lots of out of park activities which is wonderful if you have children! There are a lot of negative comments on other sites that are years old. I can tell you as of September 2015 this place has really pulled it together! - Turtleman

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
