September 2020 Stay

This was a 1-night stay.  We stayed here because the nearby state parks we were interested in were full for the weekend.  It was OK given the circumstances, but I would prefer a state park.  The location was on the edge of town.  The campground is right up against some…

Forested State Park in the Laurel Highlands

August 2020 Stay

We camped for 1 night.  We chose site 102 because it looked decent in the picture and seemed a little apart and more private than other areas.  Unfortunately, it was not great for tent camping as there wasn't really a spot to set up our 4-person tent.  We squeezed it in by the…

Beautiful location, all site with electric

Blackwater Falls offers 2 loops with sites providing water and electric. There have been some recent upgrades before opening for summer 2021, so all sites are now electric. They were not careful about the placement of hookups, so for some of the pull-through sites, they are on the wrong side of the…

Great Place

Very nice place to camp. Our kids had a great time! The trail head is right in the campground so that made it extremely easy.

Great tent camping!

This is a lovely campground! The spots are spacious and tree covered. Many loops are great for tents (our favorite!) It’s full, but doesn’t feel crowded and the guests were quiet. The RV loop has gravel pads and some have enough room to squeeze in a tent. It’s gravely though so be prepared if…

Nice quiet campground

We stayed for 2 nights while we visited Fallingwater and the Flight 93 Memorial. We should have stayed another night so we could visit Fort Necessity NP just down the road but ran out of time. Park was well kept. Staff working hard getting things ready for the upcoming Memorial Day crush.…

Great park, ok campground

The park is great! The campground is only ok. Many of the pull thru sites are situated in the wrong direction with the electric hookup on the wrong side. The dump station is in a weird spot and the only water available is the same used for flushing. Nice camp store and super clean bathhouses…

Fish, hike, relax or seek river adventures

This is a remote riverside campground with great fishing opportunities for catch and release(check the requirements for license/stamps; I included a picture of a sign). One loop comes with water/electic hookups($7 more) the others are primitive. If you use solar, ironically, the sites around the…

Rain and Mud

We have a camper van 20 ft long. Our first site was way too short and along a road. Second site was better much more private but very un-level. They limited where you could walk your dogs only on a certain loop. It was pouring rain and mud was everywhere. Deep woods sites.

Fun camp spot of the Gap trail

Free bike-in camp site with water access along the Youghiogheny River. Access from the Allegheny Gap trail. There were a few shelters, nice campsite. It’s close to an old cemetery which is useful in telling ghosts stories around the campfire

Quiet and well maintained

Spent one night here midweek in late May. Most campsites were unoccupied, so very quiet. Site 172 is right along a babbling brook. Showers were hot and free. Everything was very well maintained. The nearby small lake has a large sandy beach and beautiful views. Would have been nice for paddling…

Great option very near Pittsburgh

This was a lovely camp ground with very nice people. Lots of type of site options. Mix of seasonal and weekend camping. We stayed early in the season so many of the amenities were not open yet. We did watch kids fishing and pulling fish out as soon as they put their line in!! So much fun for them.…
