We have been staying at Benner's for years - starting with a tent then moving on to two travel trailers. By far our favorite campground. The owners are very kind and friendly and will do anything for you. It's a nice, quiet campground back in the hills behind Ohiopyle, PA. Easily accessible to local recreation and restaurants. They do enforce quiet hours and rules so it's a very safe and family oriented campground but the rules are easy to follow and you can still enjoy yourself and have a great time. The seasonal campers are all extremely friendly and many visitors are outdoor enthusiasts. It is relatively easy to get to but take caution with larger RVs as the roads off of 381 & 40 can get tight so just stay in the middle and watch out for low branches and wild life. They do have 10 winterized sites in the front row. - Dan_N_Cheri

It had rained for days before we arrived, so the campground was quite muddy. The rain continued on and off for most of our stay - which is not the fault of the campground. They put straw down on the super muddy spots. Check in was quick and easy. It was October, so most of the campers were decorating for the trick-or-treaters on Saturday night. We bought candy and shared the fun. Our campsite was level and easy to enter and exit. Utilities were convenient. The firewood we bought was damp and hard to light. At the time we were there, a bridge on the road to the campground was "out", and they gave us directions for how to go on other roads to get to them. Might be a good idea to verify that the bridge has been rebuilt and that your gps directions will work. - ShoreXplorers

Stayed 2 nights while visiting "Falling Waters". Park had some sites winterized & we had a good choice of sites. Roads to campground are quite hilly as is this whole area of Pa. Sites are very close so I wouldn't return in busy season. Staff is very helpful & friendly. - Penfield Pathfinder

This is part of the Nemacolin Resort. The rate was actually $150.00 per night, I kid you not! Beautiful grounds and sites abound. World class golf, spas, restaurants, concierge service, free transports within the resort. They even hook you up to the utilities. No bathrooms are available however. A special place for a special weekend. It was our anniversary and we'll go back next year. Not the kind of cost we'd do every weekend but it's perfect for a special occasion. Miniature golf, a zoo, paint ball, horse riding, off road driving, paddle boats and more are offered. The place is huge. - Old Guys Rule

As others have said Kentuck Road from town (ohiopyle) is VERY steep. Campground is nice and we would stay again. - Tireman9

Make sure you have the campground and not the town of Ohiopyle on your maps for directions! They are two very different places and the town is at the bottom of a very, very steep ravine. Use the Chalk Hill-Ohiopyle road out of the town of Chalk Hill if you are pulling a trailer. The campground is at the top of a very large hill. Others have said the sites were level, but ours was definitely not, sloping well to the back. Also, as others have said, we could notg find water to fill our tank and had to use our 6 gallon jug to do so from the bathroom spigot. We were here on a very quiet day and the only noise at night were the distant trains, which was nice. Cell service was good. Bathrooms were old but clean, - ALbums

Beautiful park lots of great hiking trails, biking, with great water falls. While visiting I fell and broke three ribs was hospitalized for two days. Of course it happened before the busy weekend. We were to pull out on Friday as the park was booked (electric) The park ranger found us a spot in the overflow area with electric and told my husband we could stay as long as necessary no charge. The rescue on my injury was so professional with rangers helping getting me off a very rough terrain. Yes we will come back to campground. We are in a 35 ft fifith wheel - Myzwell Travels

The campground is in steep hill country, which required some adjustments in driving by our OH flatlander group. The short piece of Tub Run Road is quite rough, but the campground itself is smoothly paved. It is in a wooded valley on a bay of the lake formed by the Youghiogheny River Dam and is quit, scenic and peaceful. We had a group of 8, with two trailers and a small RV- nothing over 30 feet, although we saw larger rigs there. Our three sites were large, level gravel pads with electric and water and partial shade. This was typical of all sites, as the grassy campground is liberally spotted with mature trees. Our sites were in the lakeview area, so they overlooked the lakeside row but, since the sites are terraced, we had a great view of the beach and lake. The shower house was close, very clean and the temperature was great. The widely known whitewater rafting company Laurel Highlands just began running this former Corps of Engineers campground this year. We found the staff friendly, helpful and to very attentive and available throughout our three night stay. We rented fully equipped kayaks for two hours for $22.00 and explored the bay. - Nemacarol

My family frequents Tub Run every year since I was 5 yrs old (now 36). It is extremely economical, and the campground attendants are fantastic. If you are looking for a relaxing getaway this is the place. There are no weekend activities for the kids or general store to buy tons of candy and junk you don't need, so if you have little ones, bring items to keep them occupied. The roads within the campsite are all paved, big bonus for my family. However, the road getting to the campground is rough terrain. Has its own private boat launch, and the inlet to Yough lake is your own little cove! There is a swimming area with a sandy beach. A large open field on the lakeside is great for kite flying or Frisbee. Wish the lakeside had electric hookups. If it did I would have given this place a 10. The kids playground area was removed a few years back and has yet to be reconstructed. Sites are mostly level and very large. Accommodated the 35 foot trailer with 2 slides no problem. Cell phone service is hard to come by, but dependent on where you are at in the campground, you may get a little service. Park rangers patrol frequently to ensure order and safety. Shower temp could be better. If you are the only one in the shower section, expect a shot of cold water at first, then it warms up. There is a little spillway from the creek side that the kids love to ride their bicycles through and catch crawfish. Getting to Tub Run can be an adventure traveling up the summit. Rt 40 is up and down hills; make sure you got good brakes and a good truck for towing! - 2beabeancounter

Great park, part of Army Corp parks. About half the sites are aimed at tent campers. Most sites have partial shade. Road to the campground is rough and the main roads in the area are very hilly so you will need to take your time. Sites are gravel and fairly level. Many have fire ring and picnic table. Some sites can only handle RV of 35' or smaller. We had no problems with our Class C. We have stayed at this park twice. Reservations on www.recreation.gov . Senior Pass discount is 50% so only $11 a night. - Tireman9

Scarlett Knob Campground is perfect place for tent camping. Its pretty close to town (6 min car ride) and short drive to all the shenanigans at Ohiopyle. We took our 28' travel trailer to a "pull-through" RV site with 20 amp and water on site. Space is narrow and VERY hard to navigate. The site surface is fairly level. I would not suggest taking a camper over 28' to this campground. I had to do a 3 point turn to get into the site and while leaving I needed 3 spotters to help me back out and up a pretty steep hill. If it would have rained I don't believe I would have gotten out. This place is awesome for TENT CAMPING. All the tent sites are pretty secluded and nestled into the woods. Each has fire rings and ample parking. They also have various size sites for larger groups. There was a small store that had some basic essentials and they served coffee in the mornings ($1.50)! We met the owners' son one evening and he was just walking around checking on everyone and making sure the MIDNIGHT quiet time rule was being enforced and no one had their radios volume loud. Would recommend and go back , but only in a tent. - Wheelingfeeling

Even though this campground was recommended by the staff at nearby Fallingwater, this was perhaps the worst campground we've ever stayed in. It is potentially gorgeous because of the secluded woods, but it seems that no maintenance has been done for years, not months. We got one of only two sites that could accommodate a 30' trailer. It is, however, very quiet because so few people are there. Be sure you have 4 wheel drive if you decide to stay here, in case it rains. You'll need it. The roads are barely passable. There hasn't been any gravel on the roads in a long time. - pegasus

This is my second stay and it was a horrible experience. Paying $190 for 1 site for 2 nights, you expect it to be in good shape, but the campground was littered with broken glass and garbage. One port-o-john to accommodate up to 80 campers. When we checked out an hour past the 11AM departure time, they wanted to charge us $90 for the extra hour. When I said I wouldn't pay they said "I wasn't man enough to pay" and "Don't come back." Needless to say that won't be an issue. Don't stay here...you'll regret it. - JDK

This park is located across the river from the town of Confluence. It runs along the river to the base of the dam. Sites are on level gravel pads. Because of the lay out some of the sites butt up closely to other sites though there are nice grass area between sites. None of the sites have a river view but the river is close and easily accessible. The 50 amp tower was at rear of site and worked well till a camp wide power outage. There were rangers and repairmen to the park within an hour though it Saturday evening. No OTA TV. Good Verizon but very limited Sprint. Great dog walking along river in the camp as well as Great Allegheny Trail across street. River known for trout fishing. - bbmidwife

Park is beautiful and spacious. The river is just a few steps away. Lots of trees. Peaceful and quiet except for the occasional train that comes through. Also the dam's rushing water can be heard but you get used to it quickly. No TV reception at all - but cell service and internet service was fine. No water hookup, but you can fill up on arrival. Showers were closed for the season due to open next week. We are self contained so we didn't find it inconvenient. Try to avoid Rt 281 off US 40 to get here. It's pretty steep. Go through the town of Confluence (Rt 523) to 281. We're even going to go out of our way when we leave to get back on 40. It rained a lot of time so we didn't explore much but the river is fun to sit by. No ranger on site. No wood for sale but the food mart has some. - Mamag76

Nice campground next to the dam and outflow station. We just found an open site and then booked it online. There was a person camping there that noticed we were looking for a spot and was very helpful. He may have been the campground host, but never notice a sign stating such at his site. Bathrooms and showers were cleaned everyday. Would stay here again. - LatLongJohn

As others have said previously, campground is off the interstate a ways, then approximately 1.5 miles down a progressively narrowing farm road. It gets so that you think you must have missed the place as signage is nearly nonexistent. But once you do find the place you're turning off the road into basically their driveway. There's the house and several garage/outbuildings with all sorts of stuff and equipment scattered around. It was a mess. Very strange for a campground. Owner and wife both came out and she escorted us to our spot. Site wasn't numbered that I could see but it was a wonderful, grass pull-thru that was actually double long. Perfectly level, with W/E and sewer - for $30! That made up for the strange setting and all of the run-down permanent trailers that were scattered around. Owner left and drove back with a small receipt for me to sign and that was it for paperwork. I don't know what anyone would do here for more than a single night, but maybe there are things in the area. The owners were very nice and friendly, the rate was great for the one night we were passing through, but I can't say we would return here again. - R.T.

Park is tucked back in the hills about 10 miles off the interstate. Starts out easy to get to, then quickly, the roads become rougher and more narrow. Once in the park, owner met us and showed us to our site. Internal roads are slightly narrow, but navigable. Some low tree limbs prevented us from extending either of our awnings. Full hookups were available. We only used electric, as we were only there 1 night. It's a little out of the way for a 1 night stay, but there didn't seem to be anything else closer to the interstate. Park was stone/packed dirt throughout. Site was super long, as it was designed for 2 long coaches, one behind the other (if you were traveling with another couple). Park is also slightly "hilly". Owner very friendly, and accommodating. Looked like there were some folks that lived there permanently, or used park as vacation/weekend "get-away". Would consider this a "stop-over" instead of a "destination" park. - usamacdonald2

The campground is located off a very rough blacktop road badly in need of repair. The road is narrow with low overhanging tree branches that must be dodged. The campground itself was okay but the photos online were much more attractive than the actual site. The office building area was littered with old construction equipment with items scattered all over the place. The owners had barking dogs that barked every time someone passed nearby. The only good/bad news is there was plenty of downed limbs for firewood that should have been cleaned up. It was obvious the owners weren't concerned about having a neat and organized campground. I would avoid this campground in the future. - joebud

The campground entrance was well marked and easy to find. Some of the internal roads were dirt with gravel scattered on top (which still became muddy when wet) and some were paved. Note that all of the roads in the RV site area were up a hill. They were easily maneuverable with a 36' DP motorhome, and there were shade trees on each site. Our back-in site was basically level, and an average width, and long enough to park the toad in front of the RV. The pad was gravel and in decent condition, and although most sites had some grass, it was on a hill between sites, which made it basically useless for our 3 Golden Retrievers. There was no cable TV, and no OTA stations. The water was easy to connect to, and the water pressure was sufficient. The sewer connection was at ground level, making it easy to use. The WiFi was easy to connect to, and the internet bandwidth was maybe a 4 out of 10, but it dropped out quite often, requiring a reconnect. Verizon cell signal was 3 out of 5 bars and 4G. We don't use restrooms or showers, so we can't render an opinion on those items. There was a dog park for our 4 footed friends, but it was a hike up a fairly steep dirt/gravel road to get to it. We did not notice any significant road noise. The price was reasonable for the services received. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We would probably stay here again. Please note: if you come here with a family, there are LOTS of activities for the kids and for the family (including a mini water park), and even some at night for just the adults. - Don Gagnon

Lots of bang for the buck if you have kids especially with all the water attractions. So much you can't do it all. We enjoyed our stay and plan to return. Tips...recommend renting a golf cart as the entire campground is sloped and some parts steep. And I'm not sure what the other reviewer experienced but golf carts weren't a nuisance at all. This was the best campground we've seen for having trees / foilage to buffer between sites. It had a real "woodsy" feel. Staff was friendly and helpful. - Sinjin79

Check in was a breeze didn't even have to get out of vehicle. Worker provided a map, rules, key card to come and go from park, and an activity schedule. Once done checking in you meet an escort that takes you to your site then assist is backing you in. (We were on a lower "standard" full hook up site.). Backing in was interesting cause of the steep hill. My TV apparently is not geared to back up pushing an RV but I did get in the spot in one shot thanks to the escort.
There is tons to do at this park if you have kids. There is something going on constantly ranging from Fire truck, train, hay type rides, dance parties, bingo where you win candy bars. (I won twice in a row left with 16 candy bars). There is snowless tubing down a hill, Gaga ball (whatever that is. We never did check it out.). Nightly outdoor movies. There is also two pools. The lower is smaller and less crowded. It even has a splash zone for the smaller kids that can't/don't swim. This is the hidden gem of the park in my opinion if want away from the crowds. The upper pool is larger and has two water slides a pretty big splash zone, a bouncy house, water balloon battle area (you have to pay for the balloons). We went to the big pool on a Thursday and it was not crowded at all. The building next to the upper pool houses the store and restaurant. We ate there on a night it rained all day. The pizza was pretty good for an RV park.
There is a lot of golf cart traffic but it did not really bother us. Cart rental is $60 dollars for 24 hrs. No thanks! We just used my truck to run to the store and to the upper water park. Park rules no traffic after 11pm. Only people I saw driving around after that were workers checking on the comfort station near us.
The lower/cheaper part of the park in more woodsy and less busy than the upper/more expensive part but the upper are pull through sites. I had to clean debris off my awning 3 times from the trees. But it did storm while there for a day and a half. - Newman252

Three miles off highway on a very rough road. The campground road entering and leaving was not friendly to big rigs. There was no WiFi, no dog park, and could not use our satellite. - Fulltimersrv

No restrooms, showers, etc. were available as advertised. No mention of that at checkin. The two restroom/shower facilities present were locked closed. We only used electric hookup. Unsure if water was even available.
Offer of cash discount with no receipt was fishy.
Would not attempt to enter camp facility in large motor home. Only bad experience in 3-day travel thru this beautiful state. - Bob West

When we called to reserve a site for a one night stopover we asked several questions including do you have any satellite friendly sites? They said yes. When we arrived we were told that there were none that would work. That was true. We were promised a full hook up site. When we arrived we were told that none of the full hook up sites were level. So we agreed to a water and electric site that was supposed to be level. Not so. It was a back-in on the edge of a ravine. I raised the back of the coach as far as I could but we were still nose high. Then I put large rocks behind all the tires to keep out of the ravine. There is no wifi or cable TV. Several "over the air" channels are available. The restrooms are not clean. When I attempted to move the picnic table closer to the coach a rotted top board came off in my hand. Not a place we will stay again. - Geodoc
