28 RV Parks near Ohiopyle, Pennsylvania
May 2019 - $27.00
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

This is a very nice state park with the typical no-frills amenities. However, it is near Ohiopyle with a lot of hiking, waterfalls and river rafting activities nearby. We camped here during the week after Labor Day and it was it was only sparsely filled, which made it VERY quiet and relaxing. We arrived and no one was at the main office because of training. We self registered and went to our site. Most of the sites are well shaded within forested areas and very spacious. The showers were typical for state parks but were clean and serviceable with plenty of hot water. The restrooms were clean. The RV sites were electric only but several water filling locations on way into park. Dump station was easy to access on the way out of the park. Entrance roads are a little steep and hilly. I would stay here again. - Big P-Daddy

Lovely wooded campground with decent space between most sites - I stayed at #159, with two tents, and a tarp over the picnic table - truck parked above, parallel along the road, but close. Site is not level, but we managed to stay dry over two nights of downpours, and the creek behind the site drowns out the noise from the generator (?) building on its other sides - stay away from sites between 159 and the nearest bathhouse if you like quiet. Trails [some unmarked] link to campground road for easy hiking to area's striking waterfalls. Park is quiet, clean, and well maintained. Roads in are a steep grade. Firewood and ice for sale 24-hours at camp entrance. Cafe in town has excellent sandwiches. - minapie

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

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

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

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

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

We stayed for 5 nights. We paid $39 per night using the Fall pricing schedule. Reservation process was easy. Check-in was fast and efficient. Staff is friendly and helpful. We were given two sites together (only charged for one) so we had a nice, long pull through. There is plenty of room before the entrance gate to pull to the side so you're not blocking it while checking in. Approach slowly so you can plan accordingly. We chose to unhook & hook up our toad outside the gate. All hook-ups worked well. Verizon cell and Verizon mifi were so-so. DirecTV signal was fine. The campground is clean and nights are blissfully quiet - no road noise and no trains. Interior turns are a bit tight but certainly do-able with a big rig. We didn't use it but there is a large pool and deck area which looked very clean. There are many long-term tenants but everyone was friendly and respectful. We enjoyed our time at Benner's Meadow Run. If we returned to the area, we would be happy to stay here again. NOTE - GPS overall is tricky in this entire area so prepare carefully. Once you're out and about, you might not get cell reception so have a back-up plan/map ready. Apple maps and Google maps both had quirks. Not normally the case but this time the Jeep nav system was the most accurate. - GottaGoNow

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

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

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

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

We stopped here without a reservation. It happened to be a weekend when they were having a Bluegrass festival. This campground has a loop for those traveling with pets. We were fortunate to get the last site available. It wasn't the best site. It was not level. It was grass and only had electric.
This state park is the most dog friendly park we have been in. You could walk your dog on many acres of park land and even down to the water in some areas. The pet loop has a very large area in the center to walk you dog also.
They have two dump stations and drinking water available at that location. The park appeared to be very well maintained.
The park is family oriented with a playground, beach, volleyball, kayak rentals, fishing picnic areas and more.
The day we were to leave it was raining. I was unable to pull our trailer off the site as the wheels spun on the wet grass. Park rangers came and hooked onto my truck and assisted me in pulling out. Great service. - petendoll
