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

Difficult to locate, difficult to park due to severe incline on the paved road. Sites are tiered, but laterally, so not too difficult to level. Nice playground and fenced dog park. - grandflic

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

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

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

This campground is new, primarily built to provide temporary housing for oil and gas workers but will take short-time travelers. Sites are short and close, many require levelers. Electricity was good, water pressure low. No cable or OTA channels. Verizon cell phones worked well. Longer term residents were friendly, tidy and quiet. We were in one of the sites on the lowest row, practically hanging over I-70. Road noise was a problem for me, even with my normally perfect sound machine. No onsite office, reservations are handled over the phone with a leasing agent. - Mom_of_Two

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

We've been at Firehouse RV Campground for almost 3 weeks now and will be here for a few more months. (Working temporarily in the area). Lots could use leveling, but overall not terrible. Great water. There is a bathroom/shower house with card/keys to get in. Also laundry facility. (did not use either of these). My only complaint is the cell & internet service, but this is not the fault of the RV park. Service is lousy all over the area. Quite often, the RV park wifi is even better than our own Mifi. If you're looking for a "garden spot" to stay, this is not it. If you're looking for a manager on-duty to hang out with, this is not the place. This is an adequate RV park, run by a fireman. It is quiet. Sits behind the Fire Station, in between a cemetery and a funeral home, but you're not even aware of these things. Profits go to help the volunteer fire dept. I do not know the nightly rate. $460/month. A lot of longer term/temporary working people here. We have only heard the fire siren 3 or 4 times in the 3 weeks we've been here. Haven't heard a train whistle yet, just the high pitched squeal of the wheels off and on, but nothing that is bothersome. Within less than half a mile there is a small local grocery store, a post office, a small convenience store that sells both gas and diesel fuel. About 10 minutes to I-79 and Waynesburg, which has several restaurants and a Walmart. (Although the Walmart is well hidden and not found when looking on their web page for local Walmarts). Pittsburgh is about 50 miles north. Staying here in a 41' 5th wheel, with 2 vehicles. - Marty O

Never again! Terrible. In the rear parking lot of a firehouse. Siren went off about once an hour all night. Nearby train whistle all day and all night. To get there, the roads were narrow and twisty. Lots of workers (linemen, oil workers, etc.) with their families. Semi-permanent. - mrpeepers

The campground is about eight miles from I-79 through the rolling hills of PA, not a problem getting there but it is not your typical highway campground. The park is located behind and run by the local volunteer fire department and staying here helps support the fire department. Our site was near the end of the lot and slopped some. The loose gravel. slope, and recent rains made it difficult to level but we made do, as it was simply an overnight stop for us. Some sites are paved and more level, there are even some pull-thru sites. There are no facilities or activities as this is a simply an area to park your RV. Many of the sites had long-term residents who are working in the area. - Dave Hole

This is by far the worst campground there is. I have been camping many years and have never seen anything like this. The roads (ditches) to get to the sites are potholed, rutted and no RV should ever go on them. I was taken to two sites that it was totally impossible to get my 35ft Winney into, then taken to a third site that was flooded because of a water leak some where. I parked on the wrong side of the patio, as I sure could not have gotten into the other side. Then when I tried to hook into water and sewer, there was none. Was asked if I could not go one night without water and sewer. I said no and demanded a refund of my $32. Was told no refunds. I talked to the owner and she told me they would put the money back on my card. Which as of 3 1/2 weeks later they still have not. Please if you are traveling this way, STAY AWAY from this "campground".
By far one if not the worst campground in the USA. - earlhop

I am currently still staying here and will be here until November. My boyfriend and our two children ( 2 year old and 4 month old) in lot 1 we like it here and have no complaints we are actually helping fix the place up so that way the negative comments can stop! It's not that bad here honestly if it was we wouldn't still be here. The owner is an excellent person to get along with and so are the employees! I haven't had rides to get to point a to point b and they have offered anytime i needed to go somewhere! They are not rude at all like most comments say! Yes I think this is a great place to stay if you are wanting a one night stay or monthly! Lots are nice some lots wooded some concrete electric trash water sewage and cable included very nice place
Thanks. - Ashley1215

This is off Exit 11 on Interstate 70. They have a permanent section and a temporary section. The front permanent section looks easy to get into and is close to the office. The temporary section is up the hill and very cumbersome to drive to, rutted road. Let's say, I held my breath. The manager was very nice and led in front of me to show me which spots I could choose from. The temporary area is quite rustic, despite having full hookups. Lots of trees, and great shade. Sites are far from being level. The sites were so out of level, I didn't even bother putting down my stabilizers. I had trouble with my cable connection, it wouldn't work. So, the owner and someone in the next spot over helped to get it working. Let's just say, you don't want to know how they got it working. The manager knew I was traveling alone and didn't have a tow car and said if I needed anything, they would get it for me. The manager is willing to do anything to help you out. I thought that $32 was a bit pricey, but this may be average for this area, and since it was July 4th time, beggars can't be choosers. The manager told me that a shopping area was about half a mile away, but I didn't check this out. I just stayed put in my RV for three days, after holding my breath to get up the rutted road. The manager said it's ok to unhook and go in and out if needed. This is ok for an overnight, but wouldn't use if for a destination. It was pretty quiet during my stay. - DXSMac
