We stayed at the Kentuck Campsite. The sites are close to each other but we had plenty of space at the same time. The hiking trails were beautiful this time of year. Wasn’t a big fan of their restrooms, not very COVID friendly I felt and a bit outdated. That’s the only reason I give it a 4 star.
We stayed here in October after the pools were closed for the year but they had plenty of great activities including crafts for the kids and trick or treating which was a blast. We would have preferred to be right on the riverfront sites but they had been booked up most of the year so it was still nice to be able to finally get into this campground which won 2020 KOA Campground of the year.
They also had a DJ and costume contest as well which was a very fun time. Our only complaint is the sites that aren't on the river are a bit tight and packed in but booking out far enough ahead should solve that. Trash pickup at your site was a nice added bonus as well and this is located right on the Great Allegheny Passage Bike Trail as well. We'll be back for sure.
- Had a super enjoyable time at Ohiopyle State Park Campground! It was very nicely tree covered and the restrooms were not far apart, but the campsites were quite close and not much separated some from others. There was firewood and ice right outside to buy, so don’t tote any in!!
- No service if you have sprint… in any of the surrounding area!
- Definitely check out the nearby town and waterfalls! The town of Ohiopyle is very cute and has lots to enjoy if strolling through (hippie shops, bakeries, ice cream, and adventure rental outlets). Cucumber Falls was cool, but GO EARLY or it is so crowded it is not as enjoyable. ForSure check out the Meadow Run Trail! Beautiful and wide trail for a more private view of cascading water features. AND natural waterslides!! Amazing experience! Was basically there at the slides alone besides a father and two children and a fisherman. Such a cool experience and hangout spot!
- Firetower lookout was a beautiful sunset and again we were alone to enjoy it!
- Jonathan Run Trail was also AMAZING! Multiply waterfalls, magical feeling forests and ponds. Truly a trail worth hiking!
- I’m including pictures of the exact camping experience we had planned, including coordinates to put into a GPS (if you have sprint def download the surrounding area into your phone before going!) Would recommend the whole plan if you only have a few days to explore the area!

This is a smallish campground and there is nothing at all nice about it except for its proximity to Ohiopyle and surrounding area. Unfortunately the lake was dried up- which the folx at the reservations site warned us about - so the campground was pretty meh without that. Of all the campgrounds we’ve been to, people here were the least friendly outside of 1-2 people. This is typical mountain folk with beer bellies trying to out-man themselves sort of place. My guess is that most of them live within a 30 mile radius and have never been anywhere else in the world. Lots of cigarette smoke and my boat is bigger than your boat sort of element here. 🙄🙄🙄. And it’s a fairly small campground but loads of folx have golf carts. And they use them at all hours of the night. At least 3 drove past our site between 4:30 and 6:00 am so every time you fell back to sleep from them driving by another one would come. Presumably to fish in a lake with little water. There are way more attractive and friendly places in this area. If you appreciate all the Laurel Mountains have to offer (e.g., hiking, rafting, biking, natural living) and don’t want to deal with sub average sites, you should look for another spot.
In contrast to the other reviews, we didn’t enjoy this campground very much. We reserved a lakefront site (60) on the end of the loop but there was no view whatsoever; golf carts rode to and from the loop to the lake access area right by our site at all hours of the night; and our neighbors ran their generator a lot. If the water levels had been higher this year, we would have enjoyed this more given the beach/swimming area and dock. If you go and are ok with a rustic site, I would suggest the lakefront sites overlooking the field and beach.
Tub Run Road is a rough (but pretty) ride to the campground. Once you hit the property, everything is well-maintained. Roads are easy to navigate and equipment all works well. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Bathhouses are kept clean. Ice and firewood are available on site. Lots of seasonal campers fill their space to the brim with tent garages, so the Creekside loop, at least, feels a little like a suburban street, but still quiet. Creekside sites felt smaller and more crowded than lakeside sites, which open onto the beach and lake. Guests were very friendly and considerate of quiet hours. A number of families were joining across generations and campsites, which was nice. Easy access to local attractions.
We had a really nice camping experience here. Tent camping at an electrical site. We were on the outside edge of the pet loop so there was some nice shade there. Everyone was friendly. And what a lovely state park. The beaches were great. We went canoeing on the lake. And had fun just hiking around a bit. No luck fishing, but there was one fella who found a good spot. Note: sites can be a bit small or awkward for campers. Our neighbor had a bit of a rough time accessing our shared electric box and we had to put our tent right on the edge because the rest of the campsite was a little muddy and there were roots sticking up—minor issues! Some of the sites were on an incline or i the middle of a field—which is good for some. Just make sure you check the pictures so you know what you’re getting!
