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. We camped at Roaring Run Resort in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at Roaring Run Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Not much to do here. This campground was close to a relative where we had to pick up mom and also on our way home. We will use this campground again because of its location.

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. We camped at Roaring Run Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Roaring Run Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Not much going on in this area as far as I could tell. It gave us time to catch up on work in the rig.

In the woods! Quiet rustic park with lots of trees so choose your site carefully if you want satallite access. Our site #64 gave us satallite access. Sites are gravel with a picnic table and a fire pit on grass. Electric and water back-in only, no pull-thrus. There is a dump station. The park is somewhat hilly and some of the roadways are not as MH friendly as others. They have a pool, minature golf, tennis courts, shuffleboard courts and bocci courts. No wi-fi or cable.Located about 55 miles from Pittsburg. The $10 rate was based on our RPI menbership. We camped at Roaring Run Resort in a Motorhome.

The lots were roomy, and wooded. TV cable was available. No sewer but water and electricity. Beautiful pool, and nice mini golf and clubhouse. We would gladly return if in the area. Rate was for C2C. We camped at Roaring Run Resort in a Motorhome.

Honey truck $$. Rec room, pool, several kids playgrounds and pavilion. 10 miles to town/Walmart. Staff friendly and helpful. Will stay there again. Rate for ROD, also accepts C2C and AOR.

I don't know what the deal is with these negative reviews. The new owners, who took over the place over a decade ago, turned the resort into a second-rate facility into a first-class campground. My experience has been very good. My husband and I joined as members recently. You have to register as a member or come with someone who is already a member in order to stay here, so maybe some of the negative reviewers tried to camp and weren't members. I do know that the staff takes the rules seriously. I completely support this. You don't have drunkenness or rowdiness; you get family people, and you can relax without any worries. What do I dislike about it? I wish there was more food available. I try to limit my cooking while I'm on vacation. If they had more nights where prep food was available, I would very much like that. We camped at Roaring Run Resort in a Campground Cabin.

The advertised "teen center" does not exist, nor is it being worked on. The store isn't bad although somewhat under stocked. The pool is great and there are lots of hiking trails adjacent to the park. There is Wi-Fi available for a charge, and cable TV available, although it doesn't work well in every site. Be VERY, very careful to obey ALL the rules, even if they are not clear. "Adult" supervision is age 21, not 18, especially in the pool area. Also, do not speed, even if you see others get by with it. They will actually fine you here. Agree with earlier post: always pay cash, do NOT let them put it on your bill. Stay with your kids under 12 all the time or they'd better be the most perfect kids in the world. (Thank heavens mine are all grown and gone, they'd never have survived this park!) We camped at Roaring Run Resort in a Motorhome.

Very nice park although sites are a little out of level. Did not have full hookups, just water and 30 amp, but that was OK for me. Plenty for kids to do, nice pool. Easy to visit falling waters and Ohiopyle from here. Restrooms and showers I would rate 7 of 10. We camped at Roaring Run Resort in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here through ROD, so no charge. This is an okay park, but we only stayed overnight. The roads are pretty rough, with large dips. They need to trim the trees. We could not get into the first site assigned to us, site 7. Unable to get satellite TV due to the trees. Verizon Mifi worked well. Dogs are allowed but there were restrictions on where they could be walked and we were warned about the waste patrol; not an issue for us as we pick up after our pets. Our site, 10, was flat, but the electric and water were on the wrong side of the motorhome. There is no sewer hook-ups; only 30 amp. No WiFi, no cable TV. Staff were friendly and helpful. Doubt that we will stay here again. We camped at Roaring Run Resort in a Motorhome.

Not a bad park for a few days. Interior roads a little rough. 30 amp only, no Wi-Fi at site # 88. Biggest drawback, no sewer hookup. AT&T data and voice not real good. We stayed here under C2C so the $10 rate. We camped at Roaring Run Resort in a Motorhome.

Well maintained park, had nice big spaces with lots of trees. Was dissapointed that they did not have sewer. They have a honey wagon, but they wanted $12 and that seemed high. They have activities on the weekend. Nice area, great golf nearby. We camped at Roaring Run Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice membership park. We stayed here using our ROD membership. The roads in the park need some work due to the recent rains. There are no sewer hookups but they do have a dump station and honey wagon service. Wi-Fi is now available in the Cedar Lodge. Staff is very friendly and helpful. We will definitely stay here again.

Roads are rutted, but useable. Some sites are up steep roads, making them difficult for some vehicles to park their trailers. Mini-golf is great, much more entertaining than you'd expect. The pool was pretty cold, even in summer. They have games and movies available and a book swap which was well stocked. For the most part: camp personnel are helpful and nice, but never, ever tell them to "put it on your bill." Pay for it, right then. From what I've observed first hand and also been told by several other campers, accounting seems to be a bit of a problem, although not in favor of the camper. We camped at Roaring Run Resort in a Motorhome.
