Don't believe previous reviews - nice little campground - safe & clean.
Sadly some people who do reviews don't understand small campgrounds CAN'T have people onsite all the time. This campground only has a couple people a day (at most) coming or leaving so there just wouldn't be any logic to owners being around all the time.
It is a small campground and it is owned by a husband & wife with two kids in college. Owners also have to work during the week so Monday through Friday it is likely you will not see them. There is a drop box for your payment, bathrooms & pool were very clean. Sites were mowed and well maintained but if you are their during the week it is highly unlikely you will see the owners or be able to talk with them in person.
However, both weekends we were their the owners were working ALL day to make the place as nice as possible. We really enjoyed the place and talking with them.
If you are looking for a HUGE campground with hundreds of sites this is not it. But if you like a private setting that is clean and well maintained you will not be disappointed.
I wanted to post a nice review shortly after our visit but I have been extremely busy. So sorry for the delay giving this feedback! - toomanypins

This run down, side-of-road park does not deserve your business. The hostess, when she is around, is rude and totally unhelpful to a first-time visitor. We were returning to the East from an 8,000 mile trip with lots of RV parks under our belt when we picked this one from Woodall's. It does NOT deserve any rating at all. Skip it. - SilverOtter

We reserved a 50 Amp Electric, Sewer, water, pull through site for 9 days. There was nobody here to check us in and other clients told us, "She doesn’t come around much." We had no instructions as to what site to go to, so we searched for a 50 amp pedestal and backed in. The owner/manager finally showed up at 5:10 pm. She was the most unfriendly person I have ever come across. Didn’t bother to introduce herself, seemed annoyed we were paying by credit card, and the word surely would not even be accurate. The first night the main pedestal power went off 6 hours. I will say they replaced the 50 amp breaker in the morning. In the afternoon the power started cycling on and off again. Now fortunately we have the best TRC Power Surge Guard makes, so it didn’t fry my A/C or my TV. It did cause damage to my computer. The manager said, "Oh I'm out of town so there’s nothing I can do. Try moving to a different site." We are both in our 60s and I am disabled so this was not a nice experience. We did it, and the problem was worse. Now the power is cycling off every 2-3 minutes. I could read the display on my Surge Guard so I know the voltage amps coming in from the Pedestal. There is/was nothing wrong with my unit or my RV electrical system. The place smelled of sewer everywhere and trash had not been picked up in quite some time. It was a nightmare. We left 4 days early and the manager refuses to return our calls regarding a refund. - jimhoch

This campground is great for traveling workers but not for a family stay. Very reasonable weekly and monthly rates. Campground is cut into the side of a hill and sites are narrow. Owners are nice folks. We stayed for 2 weeks because our options were limited for staying the area. - nascaron

We stayed here for two nights and it Was the worst KOA we have stayed in. Our site was so close to our neighbor that we could not put our awning more than halfway out without touching our neighbors camper. The water spigot for every other site is placed smack in the middle on the living side of the site not on the normal utility hookup side. So you will have your hose and your neighbors running through your outdoor area. If We moved our trailer forward away from the water connection our camper door would be less than 3' from my neighbors slide out and his sewer hoses. Our neighbors sewer connection was very close to the picnic table which was the most level part of the site. There was no playground or activities for kids or other than the pool which was not open yet. The gravel pad was level enough but the grass living area was sloped downward. The roads were tight but doable in a 28' travel trailer. Office had limited hours and their appeared to only be one employee on site. - FDNavy

Nice enough sites however after making reservations 3 months in advance we were put beside a worker who woke us up each morning at 5:45 starting his work truck and throwing things in the bed. - Mgee

Like most KOA's, the value isn't there for someone just needing an overnight stop. All the amenities become extraneous. The manager was friendly and we were escorted to our site. The park is located only a few miles from the interstate but there is a long, narrow, hilly road leading to the park, and, once in the park, the road to the sites is very narrow. The water pressure was low, but the electricity was good and the utilities are convenient. - Gator67

Because of the high heat/humidity we decided against Boondocking at my SIL's home and called Pine Cove to see if we could add 2 more days to our reservation. A staff member jumped right on our call and within minutes, had someone switch out their spot so we wouldn't have to move during our 4 day stay. We back up to water/woods so it's a great view. Garbage pickup at the end of your site and walking distance to the large pool/slide area. - Bosleys Mom

RV is at the back of the property. There is a public water park in the front creating a little crowded entrance/exit. There is a HUGE did going in that other reviews reference...saw where others had scraped. We barely made it. Gravel roads and site, back-ins only, FHU, bath house & laundry (didn't use). Seems permanent/full timers were on the left side of the park and regular sites on the right. Small park about 20-25 sites total. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Only stayed 1 night. Would have rated it higher, but someone didn't clean up after their dog in our site. Repeat offender as some wasn't that fresh. Big rig friendly - barring the entrance dip. - Corby Clan

Had I known about the steep (say, 25 degree slope) entering the facility, then approx 80' landing to register, then another steep hill up to the gated entry, I would have not risked our 40' MH. We made it, but it scarred the bujeebers out of me. Sites were wide to back into but I would hate to think what would happen if you accidentally backed too far - 20' drop off slightly beyond rear of your campsite if you are on the right side. When you enter the facility via the steep slope driveway, there is mucho traffic (car and foot) because the huge pool is adjacent and a zoo during the summer months, especially on weekends. The owners are very nice and will help you if you have issues. They sent someone to spot me as I backed into the site. We were there only one night. The facility was clean. No longer will I trust a Good Sam rating. - Sandy Swede

A well-named campground! It is located on a flat spot on top of a mountain. That gives it great views of the valley. Gravel back-in spots around the edge of the campground with pull-throughs in the center. Sites are gravel surrounded by grass that gets soggy and soft in the rain. The road to the campground is a little bumpy and curvey, but no problem to navigate. You can ignore the warning on their website that says Exit 14 (Bull Creek Road ) is closed. It is open. They provide a hose with a sewer connector to drain gray water down the side of the mountain and provide free honeypot service on Wednesdays. The restrooms/showers were closed for the winter so you have to use the residential bathroom in the basement of the caretaker's house. There is also a single washer and dryer in the basement. Friendly, helpful staff. Convenient location to see the sights in Pittsburgh and close to shopping. - Chuck Shrader

Traveling in a 38 foot coach we stayed 5 nights in a site for big rigs during the rainy season. We were in the back of the park and had a beautiful cliff view, but it was so not worth it! The site was a mud pit (no gravel). We were stressing over our back four tires sinking deeper and deeper. They do have a couple sites that had fresh-gravel (in the center of the park but with no view. I wouldn't recommend staying on the outside-loop if you plan on being there in rainy conditions. Do not stay in the back if it's going to rain until they re-gravel those sites. The park is flat so it looked like most of the sites were level. Our satellite worked great here. The management is very nice and the park is located in a quiet area. If you have a dog there's ample area to walk your pet. On a side note: Today we live in the age of wifi technology and there is nothing to stop this RV park from investing in doing wifi properly. For some users (such as ourselves) wifi is an important feature. - JDC10

I must say that of all the campgrounds we have stayed in over the past 5 years, Mountain Top had the best scenic views, without question. Even though we had some damp weather, sitting at the picnic table in the evenings, watching the sun set over the horizon was the highlight of the day. Now the blueprint. The CG is not convenient to the major highways, but sleeping at night with the windows open and without the constant drone of trucks on an Interstate highway was very peaceful. The local roads are not the best, a little hilly with lots of turns, and the driveway to the CG is mostly gravel, but we had no problems getting there or departing. There is no bathhouse and most of the sites do not have sewer, but there is a dump station which was not an issue getting to or using. In fact, the CG has a sewer hose attached to the dump station so all I needed was my clear sleeve to watch the flow...no fuss, no muss. It appears from signs posted at the office that a bathhouse is planned for the 2019 season, as is Wi-Fi. There are no activities or swimming pool, so the few children we saw were riding their bikes. As the CG is on the top of a flat hill, the sites with trees and shade are the ones they call the rim sites, which are around the outside perimeter, and are gravel and very level. The sites in the middle of the field have no trees or shade, but for those who need satellite reception, they will work. I must admit that the two nights we spent here on our way west were quite nice and if in the area again, I wouldn't hesitate for a minute to stay here. - Love To Travel 2

The camp sites are very nice, mostly spacious and wooded. The shower houses are not as well maintained as other PA state parks. There were few ranger patrols. The contact station was not staffed at all during weekdays, have to go to the park office about a mile away. Aircraft noise from PIT may be bothersome. 17-year cicada cycle in early June 2019 was fun to see. - kanling

This was a nice park. The sites were reasonably spaced and generally level. We had fair cell phone reception with Verizon and good OTA TV (out of Pittsburgh). As others have mentioned, there was a bit of noise from the air traffic headed into Pittsburgh, but it was not terribly intrusive. We found lots of good hiking here (especially in the Wildflower Reserve area) and the trails were interesting. The trail from the campground to the beach was pretty steep, so we turned back on that one. Our site (E08) was good and, after walking the campground several times, thought that others would have been better. Sites E01, E02, E14, and E30 all looked good - a little more suited for our 30 foot trailer. A01, A12, B10, B16, and F35 were also a good fit. The best place to get water is just as you enter section F directly across from F01. We enjoyed our stay here and plan to return again. - Capt Gerry

An aging park for sure - narrow roads throughout, but not a problem if you know what you're doing. The website lists the "maximum RV length" as very short, but I have a 26 foot TT and backed clear up to the wheels hit the curb in the site, and had no problem once I was unhooked. Very nice park, would stay here again in a second. The only real negative that I can say about the park is it's proximity to Pittsburgh Intl Airport, I love watching planes though, so it wasn't a problem for me! The other thing is that the "playground" for the kids is a sorry excuse for a playground. In all though, a nice park. - brian19889

Close to Rt 70 - friendly staff - park is built on the side of a hill - we could not get level - Meme508

We stayed here a couple of years ago and were not looking forward to returning but it's location is good. Fortunately this time it was a much more pleasant experience. The transient sites are near the front with permanents being back on the higher tiers. The gravel site was level and WES were fine. The sites are very close with a little grass in between. The lake looked much cleaner than last time. They still haven't done much on their roads which are severely rutted after a rain. They did grade them but they're still not good especially since the exit is all uphill. Rainy day so mostly around coach and didn't use any of the facilities.. Wifi worked well. No escort to site. - Team Asphalt

This KOA was a challenge to get to from the north. Poorly chosen options in my GPS caused it to take me through Pittsburgh, and then routed me along state route 51, winding around narrow, poorly maintained roads during crush hour. It took over an hour to cross town. Then to enter the campground, I had to negotiate a very sharp corner. (If you're going to this KOA, be sure to come in via I-70 to exit 54. The campground is less than a mile from that exit, and you avoid the sharp turn. However, that turn impedes watching for traffic to the right.) Once there, I found the campground pleasant. It was hilly and well wooded, but the lanes were still easy to negotiate. My particular site was too short to park my truck directly in front of the trailer, but there was plenty of room to the side. Getting into Pittsburgh to see the museum was a difficult as getting to the KOA in the first place. There is just no easy route. They all meander slowly through long series of little towns. Although I liked my time in this park, if I ever return to the area, I will investigate options that might offer easier access. - Jim Fulton
