Lots of repeat visitors stay here regularly. Most seem to be from not too far away. A very family-oriented state park campground. Lots of kids on bikes. Some sites have trail cut-throughs not on the map (i.e. 325 White Oak). The attraction of the park is the large lake and associated boating and beaches. Campground has its own beach. Camp store is very good. - kanling

We stayed here twice this year so far. It has become our favorite campground. It's an hour away from home. Majority of sites have only electric, but they did add 20 or so, full hook up sites last year. We've only done 2 long weekends and electric only was fine. Would want full hookup if we were here for a week.
Dump and water stations are located just as you pull in with an additional fill up station just past the camp store. We only use the centrally located bath houses to shower, but find them clean. The showers are a little hot for my taste. You cannot adjust temperature, it's just a button that turns water on.
The sites we've been on so far are so level that I didn't need any blocks what so ever, just under stabilizers. Site is a paved back in with gravel and grass around picnic table and fire ring.
Lots of trails, bike baths, and nature walks daily. Beach was hardly crowded on a hot 90 degree day. Everyone we met was very friendly.
Camp host was seen several times picking up any litter. Park Rangers constantly patrol the campground which was nice.
Store sales pretty much everything, ice, firewood, groceries, etc. They deliver the firewood to your camp site if you purchase it there.
Good fishing for kids just past the beach area. Small fish but the kids love catching fish constantly. They also have boat rentals but we found them to be pretty steep in price unless you split with a group. Pontoon rental was $200 for the day or $50/hr. If you have your own boat there is a boat launch area just for campers but you will have to park your trailer in the visitor/2nd car parking area. I did see 3 sites that have additional parking for 2nd vehicles and or a boat. There are a few rustic tent only sites along with water front cabins available for rent.
Lots of people walking or riding bikes until dusk. Once quiet time hits, all you hear is crickets. Was very quiet considering the amount of campsites. - Newman252

Camped on July 4th week end. Big Mistake!!! The park is like the Disney World of PA State campgrounds. Every oversized diesel pick up with oversized exhaust pipes and Harley's cruising though at all hours. Speeding through. People burning their trash and making noise all night. Kids I don't mind, we have 4 grown up now but, parents still need to control them. Multitudes of pontoon boats lining the marinas. And the camper store is like 7/11 and Walmart combined. DCNR gated until after 10 then gone, wide open. Told about fireworks prohibition but 7/3 was cracking all night with no one to control. Not a park to enjoy,more like a motel parking lot at the Jersey shore. Only good thing is location to Altoona area sites and if you do have a lake boat for fishing. - Kennest

We could not get a site at Prince Gallitzin State Park, so we opted to stop here and see if they had any sites available. The staff was very welcoming and provided us with a choice of some spots to park with 30 amp service. There are several places to dry-camp and they have potable water and a dump station in the park. The camp ground has mostly year-round residents and a few park models, but was close to a small ice cream stand, mini-golf and pizza shop as well as a horse riding stable. The sites are wooded and other campers that we met were very friendly. It's not fancy, but will do in a pinch! - sfedeli

We parked the RV here two nights while visiting family nearby. We did not stay in the rig or use any of the facilities. The owner is pleasant. The park is in rough shape and 99% of the residents are long term. There are 6 pull-thru sites. We did feel that the campground was safe and felt comfortable leaving the RV unattended. Because there is not much in/out traffic small overhead branches caught the top of the RV as we were going to and from our site. We were not able to get completely level. - SoonerMom

We needed to stay near Johnstown and this was the closest. Not your average park for travelers. Most are setup as seasonal trailers and tents for family getaways in a heavily wooded campground. The regulars are friendly and they had a lot going on for kids on the weekend and several play areas. The park itself is very run down and bathrooms, laundry, etc. in poor repair. There are a few pull through sites for overnighters. Some roads are paved, some sites are graveled, some are overgrown grass. That said, we enjoyed being in the cool woods and the feeling of camping. - Traveler Anne

This campground is mostly seasonal campers, but has multiple accommodations for people passing through. The lay out was very nice. The playground was in good condition. A good value, located close to everything. - msceejay2000

Things have changed since last posting. Gravel roads and sites are now dirt with many large holes. Only three of the sites (pull thru) are available for over nighters, all others have been taken by settlers. Many of the settler’s sites are nice but some are trash. If you stay on the weekly or monthly program you pay for electricity. Showers, restrooms and laundry are so dirty I refused to do laundry and went to town. The owner informed us that the park is up for sale and they are not doing any maintenance unless it’s an emergency. Overall the park is only a shell of its former self. We would go back because it’s the lesser of two evils and the only parks in the area. - Bounder1

Shore Power 50/30/20. Sewer good. Caution water pressure is very high at 120 psi. Be sure to use a water regulator. Verizon and Sprint Air cards are good. AT&T Cell phone has good signal. Lots of room to walk your pet. Sites are very long and gravel. The road in campground is packed gravel. Good distance between sites. Office person is nice but not always in the office. No discounts. A number of long term tenants but they keep nice sites. This is not a good place for children. There are a number of construction people staying here. The cable is very good. Satellite signal is easy to access. Owner has a RV Repair shop and a lot of used campers are stored on the outer edges of the property. This is not one of the better campgrounds, but I have been in much worse. I would stay here again if I were in the area. - TXBobcat

As others have noted the campground is situated on a slight hill and the turns in the campground are somewhat tight for a larger rig. But my 39' motorhome turns quite sharply so it wasn't a big problem for me. As instructed in my emailed confirmation, I stopped at the office near the road and was greeted warmly by staff and directed to my site. Unhooking toad was suggested near the storage buildings by the staff. My pull-thru site was sloping but my levelers were able to compensate. No problems at all with power. The sites are tight but I did not have a next-door neighbor during my stay. My only complaint was that the water pressure was low, reading about 30 psi on my gauge. I would certainly stay here again, perhaps requesting a back-in site which appeared a little longer and more level. - Rob R

Watch such side of the road your GPS tells you the campground is on. One side is the convention center and across the street is the campground. It's a little hard to see it. - har-fl

We just left Flight 93 Memorial. Rainy, cold, very few RV parks. traveled a long ways. (it seemed)
It was a light in the darkness there aren't many RV parks on that rd.
Lot was level, had water, electric I believe it had sewer. No tv service.
Most sites were perm campers but only about 3 people were there. - SubVet SSBN619

Called ahead and hosts waited for us to find them. Very pleasant. This is mostly a summer/recreational lake type of campground with very few of us passing through during the week. Lots are not level so evening up the camper was a challenge. - cmclark

Most of park is occupied by seasonal campers. The office is rarely open. The camp store is not well stocked. The propane is the best price in the area. The electric service is sub-par. There is a dump station and a dump collector that comes by weekly, no sewer hookups. I imagine the campground is in a flood plain. The play ground is also sub-par. Oddly enough it is the best campground in the area. We drove by L&M located about 3 miles away and it was considerably worse. This campground is nicely wooded, the lots are odd shaped so you don't feel on top of your neighbors. The large creek/small river which borders it is beautiful and has fish. The campers are in general friendly. - msceejay2000

We stayed at this park for two nights. The hostess was friendly. The rating I gave was because the pictures I saw online do not really show this park the way it is. The sites are very uneven. No shade. It is quite a way out from any stores. The road out was mostly pretty with grass and trees but was disappointed there were none of either on RV sites in this campground. A portion of the road to campground was loaded with potholes. If we had known all this we would not have stayed two nights or would not have stayed at all. - Terri Shepherd

This campground has a ton of potential due to its remote location and close proximity to Yellow Creek. It appears that the owners are trying to clean it up. It's mostly seasonal sites, some are very nice, others not so much. Several large dogs were not leashed. Seasonals were friendly enough. The transient sites are located at the far end of the campground and are pull through. Fairly level. With the exception of a few simple swing sets, there is not much for children to do. Seems that management is trying to add more activities. - blondieemtp

Park is in the state park. Has sites with shade and sites in open area. 30A hookup. Used electric only with our popup. Restrooms were clean and we'll maintained. Didn't use showers but they also we're clean. Hiking trails located behind campground along with ski and activity area close by. Dump station available on the campground across from the restroom/shower. Would stay here again. - Frankk

I think this park with it's out of level sites, which are hard to get to, was very disappointing. When we were there, the host and PA park central both told us of a boil water notice. Bugs were released overhead to control the Gypsy moth infestation. Billions of them mistook my wife and I for their target. The roads surrounding blue knob are tough to maneuver, but we escaped after our stay was up. Never to return. Oh, and the electric kept popping on and off. I can only assume that was bug overload. Imagine a hilly field with power poles. - joemama

This state park encompasses a 6,128 acre wilderness with 12 miles of hiking trails. The campground is located at an elevation of 2,400 feet, so expect temperatures to be several degrees cooler than at lower elevations in the area. The sites on the interior of the loop are different than I’ve experienced at other campgrounds. While the pads are gravel, there is no obvious driveway leading to them. With some trepidation, I backed into my site across the grass. Fortunately, even on a rainy spring day, there was no rutting caused by my motorhome which weighs over 30,000 pounds. 50-amp power service is available, but there is no water at each site. Rather, there are a few stanchions scattered about from which a pail of water can be drawn, but not connected to with a hose. Make sure your water tank is full before arriving here – its capacity will determine your length of stay. - GreenMtn08
