SMall store closes at 8PM. Staff friendly and nice. A little off the main track so very quiet. Also has cable hookup available and they give a list of channels. Good Wifi and secure. We camped at Hickory Hollow Campground in a Motorhome.

We needed a campground for an overnight. RVParkreviews showed this campground and another, close by, to have the same ratings. However, this one was about half the price of the other, so I went for this one. A friendly host, a clean campsite, and nice scenery. However, we did have to travel about ten miles or so, over single lane, country roads until we arrived at the campground. Strong, secure internet and clear cable tv. We camped at Hickory Hollow Campground in a Motorhome.

Big park so the bath house/laundry and pool are spread out. Part of the park are for permanents. Shopping in Somerset, fuel, restaurants, WalMart, Giant Eagle. Excellent Verizon 4G signal. WiFi available but didn't use. We camped at Hickory Hollow Campground in a Motorhome.

Stayed for five days in our 5th wheel. All campsites looked very level. We had a beautiful view of the hillside and pond area. Very quiet campground and nice bath house with large, hot showers. My family loved fishing in the pond and fished every day we were there in between sightseeing the surrounding areas. The town of Somerset was very quaint and had lots of great places to eat, we never had a bad meal! The pool was small but kept up well. Visited Fallingwater, Kentuck Knob, and Flight 93 Memorial. The Flight 93 Memorial was not on our original itinerary but so glad we went, as it was very emotional. Overall a very nice camping area that we will go back to again! We camped at Hickory Hollow Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Hickory Hollow is a nice little park. Transient sites are separate from the permanent sites. It was fairly quiet, but we were here off season. The bathhouse was very clean, though a bit of a hike uphill from the lower sites. The entire campground was clean, even the dog park. Water was clean. Our initial site (105) had the water too far from our fresh water hook up and we did not have enough hose. They were kind enough to let us pull across to another site. All sites seemed to be pretty level. We camped at Hickory Hollow Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The campground is close to 2 covered bridges, state parks and the Great Allegheny Passage. 2 miles down the road is an excellent pizza place. We had to drive there to order as we had no Sprint service. There is also a Family Dollar near the pizza place.

This is a very nice park situated in the Laurel Highlands of Pennsylvania. The park was very easy to maneuver our 37 foot MH with a tow dolly. Sites were hard pack and the transients are pretty much separate from the seasonals. Our site had a bit too much slope for the picnic table and our door opened up right into a electrical power meter tower. Not attractive or convenient, but have had worse. The park provides basic cable and Internet which was surprisingly good. On a 1 to 10 scale it was an easy 8 with strong signal. Also over the air TV is available but can get funny with all the hills and weather. The park is clean and well maintained and not crowded at all. Small fishing pond on site and I saw several people using it. Don't know if they caught anything. The management was very nice and efficient. We arrived slightly after hours and they had our paperwork in a box outside waiting for us. Would definitely go back as i really enjoy this part of Pennsylvania. We camped at Hickory Hollow Campground in a Motorhome.

Overall Rating:

Friendly and helpful camp staff, moderately well stocked camp store at office. Nice wide packed gravel roads, and fairly level packed gravel sites in the transient traveler section we were in, although not much space between sites. Whole campground is nestled in a wooded mountain hollow as name implies, and views are pretty nice. Had a popular fishing pond of decent size, but a woefully small swimming pool in an out of the way spot with only a Port-A-Potty next to it. Bathroom and shower facility a bit of walk uphill, and were clean and well-maintained, as were the grounds. Don't think we had luck with their WiFi, but Verizon signal was good. While maybe not my first choice in future, would be willing to stay again if I needed to stop in area after day of driving. We camped at Hickory Hollow Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

If coming off PA Turnpike, first thing to know is don't exit at Donegal if you have bigger rig. Between narrow construction lanes (at time we were there), and a hilly, winding, narrow road posted at 10 tons max weight (which CG staff person was surprisingly unaware of when she assured me there were no weight or height restrictions coming from Donegal), do yourself favor and exit at Somerset. Once you get to CG though, as their entry sign says, you can relax.

Bikers should not miss the Greater Allegheny Passage (GAP) rail trail, easily accessed in Rockwood. Can also get diesel fuel at tiny little station/market in Rockwood, but not while towing anything.

Tidy campground with a lot of seasonals, but neat, clean and friendly. No pull throughs available for the weekend, so we were assigned back in that sloped off a bit. All roads and sites are gravel. WiFi and Verizon good. Peeked in bathhouse and it was spotless. Beautiful lake, just ok pool. Would be better if regular restroom by pool instead of port-o-let. Woud return.

Very nice facility, our second time staying here as we cross western PA. Kinda far off I76, but a nice stopover nonetheless. Friendly staff. They have a whole section for annuals, and a section for overnighters/weekenders. The latter is all pull-thrus. Used the cable as we caught nothing over the air, but there are no trees in this section to block a satellite setup. We camped at Hickory Hollow Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Usually Mapquest is more accurate than our GPS. Not this time, however. It led us across some narrow, 9% grade roads. The GPS would have gotten us there much faster and safer by exiting at Somerset . We went to the Flight 93 Memorial, and were so awed by it that we went back a second day. We had a GREAT lunch at Dough Girls Pizza in Rockwood.

Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The view was beautiful and my husband enjoyed the fishing. My fur babies where very happy in the dog park. It was great to be able to have a place to take them off the leash and run. We camped at Hickory Hollow Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We camped here for 3 days. Lots of seasonal campers, all were very well kept up, no run-down, trashy campers here. The restrooms were immaculate, probably the best we've seen since we've been RVing. Electric, water, and sewer hookups all were convenient to our site (#74) and worked perfectly. The cable channels worked well, but the local channels were snowy. Would definitely recommend this RV park. We camped at Hickory Hollow Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
