Had to change cabins due to animal damage. Store hours were spotty due to lack of staff. Debbie at front desk was good but overworked. Roads in poor condition.

The campground is on a hillside but the sites are level. Those reserved for short term campers are closest to the entrance but are a little tight. Internet speed was usually good but on the last day I was disconnected a number of times even though there weren't any more people there than the other days I was on site.

Easy in out and easy checking in out. Nice big spot on end with lots of room. Kids enjoyed pillow and horseshoes and restrooms very clean

Nice spot near Pittsburgh. Fishing pond and playground was enjoyable. Nice game room and laundry facility. WiFi didn't work and nonsmoking cabin smelled a little bit like someone had smoked in it, but all good after a little cross ventilation. I'd stay there again.

We have visited KOA Madison/Pittsburgh so many times. Staff are very friendly, and facilities are really clean and nice.

GPS gave bad directions. Most KOA's have a sign or three telling you which way to go. The only sign is at the entrance.I was told only some GPS's have this problem. Well, I have the RV Garmin and printed directions from Good Sam and Apple Maps on my iPhone. All of them said to turn left (incorrectly). A construction contractor gave directions-all his people, same problem. A couple of signs???

Not sure what happened between last year and this year. This place was gross. Smelled like sewage the entire time we were there. No one in the office and no one returned my call with a request for a site change. Only when they were looking for payment which was 3 days into my stay. Will never be back.


I do apologize that we dont have regular store hours yet. The reservation line should have shared a on site # to call.That # is posted at the lodge.

Very nice place for a short stay

Staff very helpful, nicely kept grounds

Had forgotten the hill, but still a great night and very quiet which is what we need, thank you,

I got there at 4:45 and no one in the office. My neighbours got in at 2:00 and had to do night check in . I would have liked a site closer to the washrooms ( which were empty) so I could winterize. I know they were there I wish they would have looked in on us all to see if we were alright .


I am sorry. They do not have regular store hours yet this time of year. There is a number at the registration deask and on store door for on site assistance.

Perfect midpoint stop for our Indiana to eastern PA trips.

Off-season stay in March. No one in the office to greet us. Simply drove to the first pull-through site available and parked hoping we were in the right spot. It was a bit disconcerting not having anyone on-site managing the park during our stay.


I'm sorry, we do not keep regular store hours this time of year. We have an outside registration desk with maps. There is a number to call for on site assistance on night registration and the store door, and no one called.

Only reason not a 5 is because sites are a little unlevel.

More spacious than other KOAs. Close enough to where we needed to be while still feeling relaxed with a nice view.

Everything was clean and nice people.

Just needed one night on my way thru the area and it was nice to find a campground so far north that is open during the winter. Very accommodating staff and I had a very nice stay.

Facilities were fine and the office was friendly. Certainly the steepest hill on which we've seen a KOA located (easy to drive/hard to bicycle around the park). Overall an interesting adventure.
Dec 06, 2016
We would definitely use this camp ground again.

We're sorry we went there. There was plenty of room to place people apart at least one site. An RV with the loudest heater I've ever heard was placed next to is after we got there. I slept maybe 3 hrs. Looked like a lot of people live there, lots were up early, 5:30am, starting their trucks to idle forever! And the office didn't open until 10am on a weekday?? So we couldn't get our propane filled.

Winter stay here, place was just fine. Not much happening. Quiet enough.

The campsite were spacious. There were lots of things that we(kids)could do without leaving out site. And most of all the bath houses were great!
Nov 07, 2016
Always a great get away!

Nice convenient location, very quiet setting. Came in late and left early, so I never had the chance to interact with the staff. Would stay here again.

A little dirty ,store not stocked seems like a working mans campground for out of state workers ( not a bad thing) our stay was late in season but they could have still had activities .Didnt live up to Koa expectations
Oct 29, 2016
Easy on/off of highway Nice Pond Didn't use any facilities Mostly full time residents who work in the area Strong smell of raw sewage in the stream or run off ditch.
Oct 26, 2016
We checked in after hours without any problems. Everything was ready for us. Thank you for making it an easy in and out rest stop.
Oct 26, 2016
Decent campsite, although there were many more seasonal and "permanent" trailers than short-term overnighters. Bathrooms were large and clean. Lots of noise at about 6a from many vehicles from more permanent residents going to work in morning.
Oct 26, 2016
Friendly staff. Clean facilities. Campsites were level and adaquate for our length - 35' 5th wheel however size of campsite was small compared to others. About 20ft between sites.
Oct 24, 2016
Great place to stay! Staff was very nice and welcoming. Campground was great.
