We stayed at a site that was right next to the playground. The kids meet a few new friends and we enjoyed them laughing and playing. The site itself was great big enough for what we needed. Water was close and so was the bathroom. It’s close to the airport so planes would fly over head (pretty high). If that’s not your thing then you might not like the noise but me and the kids loved it. We will definitely go back.
Great campground. Can get busy on the weekends, but there is pletty of space between spots.
They have some spots for small trailers, but we’ve only ever been able to tent there. Nice clean facilities, plenty of hiking, fishing and swimming.
Lots of Racoons. Great lake for swimming and fishing. Trails are nice. Bathrooms are clean
I had the most wonderful time on my first tent camping at Racoon Creek. We made a fire, hiked by the moonlight and swam at the warm lake at night. There were other campers around but we rarely noticed them and only when walking to restrooms at the daylight. I will be back soon
We stayed at Raccoon Creek State Park while attending a wedding near Pittsburgh, as it was one of the closest campgrounds. We really enjoyed our stay. There were water spigots very near the campsite, as well as a very nice camp host who was great to have conversation with. The showers might scald you, though, so be careful! We had a great time exploring the trails and biking around the park, but be prepared for plenty of hills. We stayed here for a week and really enjoyed our stay.
I enjoyed my stay at this park. We had a tent site for the weekend. It was a beautiful area and I really enjoyed exploring. Looking forward to going back soon!
We stayed at a primitive site for a couple nights. We enjoyed the seclusion and all the nature surrounding us.
near good fishing lake and hikeing trail need a little improvement but not bad
I started camping at Raccoon back in the 60's as a little person with my family. Hadn't been for several decades, but finally got back with my husband and cats the past couple of years. Great park ony a 1/2 hour outside of Pittsburgh. The campground has something for everyone - RV sites with electric (although I wouldn't recommend bringing your 40' rig…sites can be a tad on the smaller side) or secluded sites just for tenting. Restrooms are clean and well maintained. Two loops allow pets F and B, but only some sites in F have electric, so be sure to check if that is what you need. There are many hiking trails that are not too strenuous or you can take a 10 mile trip around the lake. Lots of birds for viewing, particularly near the beach. You can put in your kayak or fish on the shore at the fairly large lake. Boats do require a launch pass which you can obtain from the park office. And don't miss the Wildflower Preserve if you are there in May or late summer! Great place to take the family and relax in nature!
