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

One way in and out of the RV section, but little traffic. Utilities worked well, including WIFI with our signal amplifier. Hookup post should have been about 6' further toward the center of the site, but it was adequate. Site was level and park quiet. 35+ miles to Pittsburgh, but there is no good park closer. The entrance/exit is on a curve on a narrow two lane highway, so getting in and out of the park requires nice people in the vehicles on the road you will take up the entire road making the turn. - ramblin' vagabonds

We stayed here for one night on our way home after a two-week journey into Ohio. I knew going in that the campground is part of a swimming club, but when we turned off of the highway and saw virtually hundreds of people in the pool, I thought we made a mistake. All I could imagine were swimmers carousing through the campground all night keeping everyone up. But when we registered and were given the code of the security gate, I was relieved. Actually, the CG was far enough away from the pool that we didn't even know it was there. The CG was quiet and very clean. The sites were level, and large enough for the MH and toad. I didn't use the bath house so I can't comment on the condition, but it looked newer from the outside. All-in-all, this was a fine choice for a one-night stopover after driving the Interstates all day. - Love To Travel 2

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

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

This was our maiden voyage for our new camper, we choose this campground since it was only 45 minutes from our home. Very friendly staff, clean bathrooms and showers. Showers were free and had good hot water. We had a full hookup site, site was gravel but was very level, didn't need any blocks. Free cable TV and WiFi. Has good Verizon service. Nice pool and bounce thing for kids. Overall a good campground! - Medic005

BE SURE TO USE THE EXIT AFTER IRWIN! The driveway in, is steep, and narrow. We arrived after dark after using the Irwin exit on advice from our Co-Pilot GPS, and found after attempting to enter that we couldn't make the turn from that direction. Other than that the site was pull through and serviceable. Park is extremely busy, lots of traffic day and night, even in late November. Standard KOA features, playground, dog park, jump pillow, pool. Looks like they are doing some construction. Intererior roads are narrow, and dirt. - krmihalk

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

The bathhouse was closed for renovation until further notice when we camped here. Some sites are creekside (no sewer) and other full hookups were up steep, winding curves, between close trees. A little hard to navigate with a large camper but the scenery was beautiful. Owner is very friendly and the campground is gated for camper security. Owner emptied tanks on electric / water only sites twice a week at no extra charge. This campground is off the beaten path; yet close to village of New Stanton and the Westinghouse energy site. We would recommend this campground to anyone! - lapo99

Made a reservation by phone while on the road with very friendly office staff. Easy and friendly check in as well. This campground is built in layers on hillside and is very large. Drive in did not scare us at all, we have seen far steeper hills at other campgrounds. We were put at the lowest part of the park which held large, level, FHU pull through sites. Cable was offered but we did not use. We had good over the air TV reception. These sites are perfect for those with satellite dishes. Wifi was relatively good as well. Our site was level gravel with grass sides between campers. Each site had a picnic table. Fire rings and more tables are available around the perimeter of the park which means no smoke coming in your windows. Bathrooms are cinder block with concrete floors, very clean. Pool was nice with two slides and a small kiddie pool with fountain as well. Office/museum is full of stuffed, hunted animals which unfortunately included a spectacular wolf. Price for FHU + cable was good. Not far from highway with several easy to navigate loops. I would definitely stay here again when driving west. - Trainspotter

First Impression: A CG in a valley. Access road drops like a roller-coaster. Check your brakes. Safety: No concerns. Access: Exit 1 off PA-66 turnpike (before tolls), head east on Wilson Fox Road, about ½ mile. Municipal road in poor condition, good signage, Garmin GPS is accurate. Office: Nice staff, token store with snacks. Credit cards accepted but checks/cash preferred. Online reservations not available. No price discounts. Facilities: Pool and Kiddie pool in middle section, no fitness room. A crude "game room". No laundry room. Very bad restrooms/showers in middle section (score "F"). Propane sales. Multiple playgrounds. No off-leash dog run. Campground: Not in a flood plain. No storm shelter available. CG in 4 sections: lower, middle, "side", and way-out-back. Middle is heavily wooded. Interior roads are narrow gravel in fair condition with gentle turns and no overhead obstacles. Lower section is big rig friendly; middle and side sections, not so much. Multiple tent areas, no yurts or cabins. Sites are all nearby, sufficiently level, gravel, pull-through and back-in, grass between. Pedestals at middle of site with electric 20/30/50; no meters. Adequate water pressure with good taste. Sewer pipe is 4" threaded, about 2-4" above ground level. No patios with usable picnic tables. Some sites have fire rings.

Very steep hill to enter the park. With our 45 footer we stopped just prior to the office in order to turn to the lower field. They were still a bit mushy due to recent storms. Gravel roads need smoothing. Easy level and utilities worked well. Lots of maneuvering room with easy exit. - hug448844

Great park. Clean and neat, a great experience. We parked on a grassy sight, and it was fairly level. No problems. - vaw123889

It wasn’t easy getting to the park. The issue getting there was related to road work and narrow roads. Once we got there we really liked the river front site. The trains were obnoxious late into the night. We bike and the bike paths is right next to the park with easy access - Tour49

Nice campground to stay for a few days. Good FHU in pull though areas. Water and Electric well placed. Sites level. Very good Wifi, I measured 5.5 Mbps. Verizon signal mostly unusable (campground is in a valley). Our pull though was large enough for our 36' motorhome and toad. Surface gravel. Fire ring and table. Staff were very nice and courteous. Propane is across from the office. Many washers and driers for use. The campground is on a river across from a railroad track, but did not find the noise a problem. Satellite reception good in D and T pull throughs, if you are along the river probably will not work. Bike/walking trail goes though the campground. There is a camp store, but we were here the last weekend, and it was mostly empty. Many full time sites, but well kept. There is a gate to get in, just a, post not high enough for Class A, have to get out and buzz the office in order to get in to register. The road in is steep, stay in 1st and will still need to brake. Campground roads are narrow, but easy enough to navigate in our class A. Would defiantly stay here again. - wtravlr1

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

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
