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

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

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

After having a bad experience at another park where we broke our leveling jacks, we were made very welcome at Hickory Hollow RV Park on short notice while we waited for parts to come in. The sites are grass and gravel and are very level. Full hook-ups; WiFi and Direct TV connection. - KNewton

SMall store closes at 8PM. Staff friendly and nice. A little off the main track so very quiet. Also has cable hookup available and they give a list of channels. Good Wifi and secure. - Catastrophie

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

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

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

Recently they upgraded around a dozen sites to full hook up however the designers evidently never had an RV. The pull thru sites were made on too tight of a radius for anything larger than a popup, and all of the sites are out of level. The state of PA has outrageous pricing. The FHU sites are in the pet section so you pay the $2.00 additional per night pet or not. Other than the above the park itself is one of the nicest in PA. Warning - On the electric only sites the power fluctuates, the wiring is ancient. You take a chance of burning up your AC or other electronic items when the park has higher occupancy. Some electric only sites were upgraded but not many. - Ulysses E McGill_The Paterfamilias

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

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

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

Very large and well kept park. We stayed at G-300. Large green area as part of campsite. Great for kids or dogs, (On pet friendly loop.) Lots to do at park. - BDP

We love state parks with full hook ups. This RV camping area is very new looking and well kept. It is on a gentle slope with terraced camping sites, which are mostly level. The tent camping areas are a bit more primitive looking. It is a huge park around a lake. There were areas around the lake where you could not walk your dog. The beach was closed to everyone - people or dogs. Our campsite utilities were convenient. We talked to a "regular" who said that the campsite is very full in the summer and on weekends. We can believe it. Mid-week in October it was mostly empty and very pleasant. - ShoreXplorers

Big rig friendly full hookup 50 amp super long pull through site B309. Sites in B loop are level enough for big rigs. Checkout time 3PM is great for weekenders who want to take advantage of Sunday. Super friendly reservations, you can shorten stay anytime, and they will refund rest of reservation. T-mobile service excellent. From Breezewood, we took 30W all the way to park entrance on the left. Very easy for big rigs too. During off season, dogs can swim at beach, use common sense. - univmd
