We stayed here for several nights while visiting friends in the area, and we needed full hookups after dry camping for a few days before. The campground is mostly populated by seasonal campers, and the owner was quite friendly when he greeted us. But overall the campground can best be described as shabby. The view behind our RV was a field of rubble across the street. The site was gravel, but surrounded with mud. The front view was of well-past-their-prime motorhomes set up for seasonal camping. Tight curves on the interior roads. A good place to stop on the way somewhere else. - Miles and Smiles

This was an overnight stay for us on an extended trip NW. The site was level but very wet due to much rain. Roads to the campground are rural, narrow, steep hills and sharp curves. Not recommended for larger RV's (ours is 32 foot). Friendly seasonals and staff. Store/office not open during our stay. Watch the signs and LOOK for park entrance sign before pulling into unknown unpaved roadways. - Forest Woods

Older rustic campground. A bit out of the way to get there - several miles of rural paved roads. All the utilities worked. Campsite was grass. If the weather had been bad, it might have been a problem getting in and out. - Wagon Master

We stayed here for 2+ weeks. We have stayed at this park for the past three years while visiting our family. We basically park our rig, leave the campground, and stay with our family. We usually bring the grands back to the park for several days so they can enjoy the great pool here. We stay in the transient area and these sites are very close to each other. Our awning, when extended, almost touched the rig next to us. When you sit outside, under the awning, your chairs are close to the electric box and sewer hook up of the rig next to us. We were in a pull thru site and it was level. - Twirlybird

We arrived on Saturday afternoon and left on Wednesday morning. They quoted $46 per night over the phone and told us that it would be $50 per night when we arrived. They said that they didn't know we had a large camper. That was not accurate because I always tell campgrounds what I have to ensure they have a site long enough. At $50 per night you would expect a lot more. There is no cable and no wi-fi. When we asked about cable they told us that for $50 we could get a cable box to get cable then when we return the box they would give us our money back. All travel pads are gravel. The campers are right on top of each other and in the double lots (Where they put the big rigs) you walk out your door to look at the door of the camper next to you. When we extended our awnings they were just a few inches away from our neighbors awning. They only allow 2 adults and 2 children under the age of 18 per campsite. All others are considered to be guests and you have to pay $3 for each day and $5 for overnight per person so for large families this could cost a fortune. The showers have the push button 30 second water supply which means hitting the button every 30 seconds. There has to be a better way to prevent excessive water usage. There was a sign on the shower stalls saying that they were going to renovate the showers this summer. I wonder if they put those signs up there each spring, its almost fall and the showers were not renovated. They were a mess and had spider webs in them. There is never anyone in the office. If you need anything you have to call someone and wait for them to go down to the office. They do not allow mats to be used. The owner tried to get me to park so far forward on the lot that the front of the camper was going to be sticking out in the road. I finally parked it back far enough to be out of the road. - buckeyetaz

If you are claustrophobic, Do Not stay here. Booked 2 nights and only stayed 1. The campers are so close, that our awning touched the neighbor. Said there was a fire pit and picnic table for each site. We did not have a picnic table. And be careful when using fire pit. Was afraid of setting something on fire, because everything was so close together. And good luck if you need anything, there is never anyone in office. And when you call they just get annoyed. First and last trip to this campground!!!! - Disappointed camper 2

If you love rules, you will love this park. Perhaps the first indication is a huge sign posted on the side of a building at the entrance: "GO SLOW OR GO AWAY!" There literally was a 5 MPH speed limit sign in front of every campsite. Most of the tenants were long term, but the grounds were clean and neat. Large signs beginning with "NO" listed rule after rule. They were posted everywhere. The family-run park is grass and gravel, with ancient bath houses and a pavilion which could all use an updating. Sites range from spacious to narrow. There are many tent sites in beautifully wooded areas. Our site was very close to our neighbor and not particularly level. - rfmscat

We enjoyed our stay at Crawfords. It is a clean and quiet campground. Wifi is not very good. If you walk near the campground office it is. Our connectivity with TMobile was nil. The neighbors had Verizon with 3 bars. We have stayed multiple times, and would stay again. - gretzky

On PA-51, about 6 miles from the Ohio border. Turn east/south at the blinking yellow light onto OH-168, Salem Church Road then about .8 mile, turn right on Hodgson Road, then .8 mile and left into the CG.
Weekly rate $170; monthly $380. No credit/debit cards accepted; cash or check only. All electric is metered, even for daily visits ($0.11/kwh). One employee who is very friendly and helpful. Municipal access roads are sufficiently wide, maintained, asphalt but lots of ups-and-downs. Watch for one low-hanging tree on Hodgson Road. Internal roads are gravel, somewhat narrow with no overhead obstacles.
A variety of sites which are grass/gravel with mowed lawns and occasional tall trees. A few sites have patios; most have picnic tables. All sites are FHU-20/30/50, level with pedestal at the road end of the sites. Sufficient clear sky for satellite antennas. No cable TV. Fires permitted in fire rings. Well water has low, but adequate pressure and okay taste. No office store. No propane sales. Restrooms/showers are old but clean with newer fixtures but minimal privacy (score "B-"). No laundry.
Spacious, grass playground. Very nice, unheated, salt water pool. No spa. Free Wi-Fi but internet access is weak and unreliable. Verizon coverage is dismal at "½ bar." CG is in the country and is very quiet. No recycling bins. - StephenK

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

Camped here many times - always F loop for dog. Bathroom cleaned twice a day, older military style fixtures and skylights to keep costs down but clean and efficient restrooms and showers conveniently located. Dishwashing stations are great. This is a great park for tents, tent pop ups and smaller travel trailers. Sites are not level and pads are small but plenty of room between sites. Great hiking trails and nice lake to swim in. Very quiet, wooded sites but airport is close by. Jets didnt bother us. Weekend movies and shows for kids and playgrounds. Walking paths for dogs. No sewer or water at site but dump station clean and easy to access. Potable water is from springs and makes the best coffee! Verizon phone limited, T-mobile not at all. Several digital TV stations near by. Senior discount and a few ADA sites. - tomas_grupos

We stayed here while working in Shippingport, PA. The campground is geared more toward traveling contract workers. There are no facilities (restrooms, etc.) and the owners run the park from their home. The owners were extremely friendly and the area was very nice. We will come back again! - lapo99

The pictures on their site are deceiving . We thought that it looked like a wonderful place to stay...Started off bad right from the beginning. We booked early enough to get a better spot.. Were told that there were lots of spots available at the time. When we got there we had only a choice of 3 sites ( none any better ) We were told that others had been booked before us ( not true as we asked 5 campers that had good sites & they said they booked only a day or two early to get theirs, plus they were only staying for the weekend (so their spots were left empty the rest of the week.) We had a whole week to stay in our terrible spot.. So un- level that we had to go in and out of our unit via 3 huge blocks to our step which rocked back and forth making it very dangerous for us at our age. Awful brown water ( no different than their other sites though ) coming from a broken faucet that kept dripping enough to cause a mud hole close to our unit. Bathroom was filthy, paid for shower and it still didn't work. Commodes always filled with poop & paper because they didn't flush right. Pay showers that didn't work ( just dripped ) after you wasted the quarters. Dish washing basin filthy as well and I cleaned it each day. I did more cleaning there than they did just to use the facility . Believe me if we hadn't been there with a pop-up camper that was hard to take down and set up, we would have left after the first day. We told management ( both brothers and employees inside the store) , and they were suppose to come and speak to us...Felt they should have at least reimbursed us for the cleaning supplies I had to purchase at their store. We were told that one of the managers would speak to us the day we were packing up to leave....No where were they to be found! We have camped for 50 years and this was one of the worst places and lots more expensive than most others. Paid a high price to spend a lousy week there. - Linda1221

This campground is a little tight for big rigs. There are activities and the camp store is nice. Laundry was clean. Arcade machines did not work well. Dog park is nice however it requires a short hike through a pine forest. Nice park otherwise. - Texas Gals

Big rigs should avoid this park. Narrow entry road off the freeway, no place to park to check in and sites are angled at 90 degrees making them difficult to get in and out of. Staff on arrival was young, unprofessional and not helpful at all. It is in a beautiful setting and would be a nice place to stay with a small unit or a tent. - Amls

Small and not many people. Went 2 different times. One for weekend, once just passing through area. Vault toilet, pretty clean. Only has sun shower-- brrrrr. No water to fill camper tank and it said on website they did. They do have dump station. 4 or 5 electric sites, those sites back up towards a public road, although not terribly busy you still had noise from road. Would stay at again over night if passing through. - The Hoeys

This is a very small State Park Campground. They only have 6 electric sites. They have water for tents but not with a hose hookup so you can fill your water tank. Not good. They only have one shower and it's a sun shower (you have to get the water bags from the camp host for $1.00). This place is great for tents and pop ups. Sites 19-27 and 49-55 are away from the road, very private, quiet and beautifully wooded. These are for tents, no electric. Pioneer Village and the picnic area are near the creek and very very pretty, just a small drive from the campground. - RVBuckeye

Stayed at Buttercup over a long weekend while one of my kids had an event near Cranberry, PA. Conveniently located close to Pittsburgh with only a short drive which is why we even tried this CG. Checkin was a breeze. Staff was very friendly. They had an Xmas is July party where gifts were handed out to children if you supplied the gift. My 6y/o is still confused why Santa was here in July and brought a gift for her. Pool was nice and not over crowded but there was a chill in the air with mild temps during our stay. Campground is primarily seasonal. Nightly spots are separated from seasonal and sort of in a field. There is a large field near nightly for kids or activities with a playground on the other end. Since separated from seasonals no golf carts flying by. It was pretty quiet at night. My only knock on the place is sites are grassy. No carpets so dirt and debris was tracked inside. Sunken ground from repeated use however made our spot almost level. Only needed one lynx leveling block. We were in a corner spot and due to how hookups are set up they informed me they will not fill the spots on either side of us. They told me to park my truck in spot behind us. Was 25 ft from water hookup so I barely made it using 1 water hose but I had more just in case. If they would've filled space behind us our hookups would've been basically under their canopy. Wouldn't have been a problem though if we were with a group. I see why they don't fill those 2 spots and I'm glad they don't force people into them. I credit the CG for that. Spots are big enough and not crammed in. Wife said restrooms near pool and office/store are clean and nice. - Newman252

Is geared towards seasonals. They have over 200 seasonal sites and about 15-20 visitor sites. Owner is very nice and personally escorted us and helped us park. It was reasonably close to Pittsburgh and we were visiting family, that's why we chose it. When we pulled up we stopped at a gate to enter the park, we were told to back up and go up a dirt path to the visitor sites. The seasonal sites are behind a gate and surrounded by a fence. We felt like an afterthought and an outcast. For the weekend it was us and maybe 4 other RV's, but they parked us all close together. The sites are laid out oddly, the electric and water hookups are on the opposite than most other campgrounds and we had to run the hoses across our site. The sewer hookup for the next site was super close to our picnic table and fire pit (like within 6 feet) The sites were very narrow, we could not fit out truck in front of the site, even perpendicular. The neighbors had a fire and they were so close I was afraid of our tanks exploding. We asked permission to receive mail there and they allowed it but didn't notify us that anything arrived and seemed annoyed when we asked. The restrooms were clean, we had to walk quite a ways around a building or else jump the fence and walk through the seasonal side. Lots of options for the area, we probably wont stay here again. Price was comparable to others. - sbrigga315

We didn't notice any of the ruts as mentioned in other reviews. There are two speed bumps, one on the entrance road and one at the entrance to the transient camp area. Neither are unusual. Our site was very nice with plenty of room. It slopped back to front and right to left, but we were able to level with out too much effort. Good cable TV. Bad WiFi. Given the overall lack of full hook-up sites in the general area, this campground is a gem. We would return if in the area. - 15243

We only stopped over night on the way home from western Ohio, but we will definitely be back to explorer the park and the area. Our route was along the Ohio Scenic Byway and was an pleasant end to an otherwise horrendous drive along Rt 71.
The park is off the beaten path and being a Sunday night, there were plenty of open site, but only a few big rig friendly. The site we were in was 30 A and no water, but there is a water fill and dump station near the park office. I saw the pool but did not go for a swim, but again will plan on taking full advantage of the amenities another trip.
The staff was very friendly and even offered to escort me back to my site. It's heavily shaded so no satellite but over air was acceptable. - htowners

Gorgeous state campground to top of hill. Large wooded sites. Great trails for hiking and ponds for fishing. If your looking for a relaxing camping trip with quiet nature all around you then this is the place. Campground has a well laid out dump and water fill station, small campground store. At the entrance of the campground which is at the bottom of the hill is a large pool with a water slide and jumping board. Also they serve hot food at the pool area. Local sheriff makes routine patrols thru campground. - mdcamping

We were promised a site with a view of the river. When we arrived we were told someone had placed another camper in our spot then offered one of three other spots, two of which my truck would not fit, much less a 43 foot RV. The other was a 30 amp with no sewer. We were handed one excuse after another, the camp site was not at all what it was depicted to be on the website. We had to find another RV park for the night. - Wanda M

We stayed at this park for the great view of the Ohio River, to visit the Fiesta dinnerware factory just up the road, and for a quick business side trip to Pittsburgh. (There are absolutely no Pittsburgh area campgrounds with decent reviews.) Like almost all the campgrounds in this area, it is mostly inhabited by quiet and well--behaved permanent or seasonal units, with the prime sites reserved for visiting RVers. Our site directly overlooked the river and the many pushboats and barges quietly passing by. The entire campground is grass, with ruts and connections to mark the sites. No problem. There may be mud when it is rainy, but we had great weather. There is no manager on site during the day, but she was here eating dinner and awaiting our late arrival. When we needed a power cord extension, she showed up promptly with one. And the next day she was free with information about good restaurants (there aren't many) and an alternate route to Pittsburgh. Like every campground in the region, there is no cable TV and no local stations available. Some sites have sewer, and there is a convenient dump station. There is a very small playground, but in general I would say the campground is not designed for kids. We found it to be very quiet and peaceful. This could be because school is in session - we make a point of traveling when that is the case. There is plenty of room for large rigs. - pompomgirl

The campground is right on the Ohio River and there is a boat launch and docks. The road in is gravel and you cross a train track (train doesn't run at night). Check in was fast and friendly. The majority of sites are full time and well kept up. Our site was a pull through but just barely. We were right next to the bathhouse and pulling out was a bit tricky. We were able to leave the tow-dolly attached. Site was all grass and level. We were parallel to the river so sitting outside was nice and peaceful. We had full hook-ups with 50 amp The water connection was a little far, about 30 feet. Water pressure was good. WiFi wasn't good the first night but they put in a new system the next day and it worked great. We stayed June 7-9, 2017. We paid $39.22 a night with no discount. Across the river is East Liverpool, with shopping and restaurants. Just down the road from the campground is the Laughlin China Company where Fiestaware is made. They have a retail store and be sure to check out their scratch and dent room - great prices. - BarrettsHappyTrails
