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

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

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

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

This is a clean park but I can't say it is big rig friendly. The one pull thru was long enough but low hanging branches forced me to disconnect and ask for another site. The half mile long service road in is only wide enough for one vehicle and meeting a vehicle would be a serious headache for someone. There was minimum cell phone use and only 3 PBS channels. Our site was dirt and grass. - Michael47

We stayed here upon the recommendations of friends. I prefer the State campgrounds of Pennsylvania (with at least water and electric). This campground had somewhat of that feel. It was quiet, had water, sewer, and electric and was clean. The camp sites were clean, as were the bathrooms. Our pad was cement, as a few of them were. Most of the sites looked level for the most part. Staff was friendly, and very willing to help and accommodate. Electric boxes had 20/30/50 amp connections. Water pressure was very good. The camp store had a lot of what you may have forgotten. Plenty of sights around the area to go see if you are into the outdoors. Beaver creek State Park had MILES of walking / hiking trails 4 miles away. We will go back! - Steverino

A long way into a town or the nearest interstate so maybe not great for a one night stand. It is Great for a longer stay. Free hayride on Saturdays and a free beach everyday. I spent one afternoon sitting on my lawn chair in the creek behind our site. - WNC Traveler

Yes there is so much to do here. We stayed 3 nights and did not get to do all that we wanted. My GPS had no issues getting us there. There are several signs directing you which way to go. Yes the road to the campground is not ideal. It is paved, but bumpy and windy. This is a public road and no fault of the campground. Leaving, we encountered a big rig coming in. No problem if you both pull over and let the other pass slowly. In the campground itself, the roads are narrow so again, pull over and let the other pass. The owner was super nice and appreciative that we stayed at his campground. Our site sat back off the road and had plenty of grassy area in front. Site was level with gravel where you park the trailer and a stamped concrete patio. Negatives - Bathhouses are spaced out. Each loop has a bathroom, but they are like outhouses. There was air in our water line so the pressure was not the greatest. The other couple with us in the next site had the same issue. Sometimes the cold water would come out hot for a bit. None of this would keep us from returning. - JillaRoo

PROS: Situated in beautiful canyon, with loops of camping sites about a mile into the canyon, with a creek meandering through. Large lake with paddleboats. Numerous playground areas for kids. Good signage. Well maintained. CONS: Restrooms were basically outhouses, although they did have RV toilets. No sinks, just a hand sanitizing station outside of each. The approach to the park is about a mile of a narrow, winding steep one lane road -- scary in an RV. Poor Wi-Fi connection in the park. When we visited, I think we were the only visitors, although the park was about half full of year-round residents. The year-round rigs were well maintained, with landscaping, storage sheds, permanent decks, golf carts. However, we felt like intruders in a mobile home park. - Paul and Jeannette

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

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
