“Convenient to Ohiopyle activities; not the best camping destination itself”

Reviewed Dec 19, 2017

Overall Rating

Perhaps it was a combination but our experience was less than ideal for an early fall stay (2 nights) at Ohiopyle State Park. We arrived on a Saturday evening and were unable to locate a water fill station. After several loops through the park, dump station area, garbage area, and bath houses, we were able to find a working water spigot at the camp host site, which fortunately for us was vacant. The local water fill up areas did not have the typical water hose fittings so plan ahead and fill up before arrival.

Saturday evening crowd was busy, and the loop was mostly filled. The area was quiet, especially after checkout the second day. Site 034 was an awkward back-in and took some serious backup iterations and not much privacy to your neighbors. The best trailer/RV site appears to be 045 (pictures taken) that is on a dead end spur of the paved road but provides a large parking area that would easily accommodate two vehicles.

Playground facilities were essentially non-existent and (based on several of PA state park experiences) was incredibly outdated and far below expectations for the seemingly highly visited state park. Convenience to the hiking trails is good, with the down town shopping area (bike trails and rafting) being only a few minutes drive away.

Cell reception was spotty; it took walking up to the nearest playground or to the top of the loop from site 034 to get Verizon coverage.

“Beautiful wooded setting within walking distance to town”

Reviewed Sep 29, 2014

Overall Rating

Okay, by "walking distance" I mean more like hiking distance. It's less than a mile, but the walk back does involve a very, very steep 1/4 mile uphill at the end.

Other than that, it's a beautiful trail across bridges, gorges, and through the Laurel Highlands to a really cute little rafting town.

The campground itself is great, tons of space, lots of trees. No alcohol is allowed in PA state parks, so it's relatively quiet at night. Average bathrooms, fires are allowed, and reasonably priced firewood is available just outside of the campground.

Greetings from Ohiopyle, PA! on Wand'rly

Greetings from Ohiopyle, PA! The Youghegheny River is not to be trifled with. People think raging rapids and the big western rivers like Colorado, Snake and Salmon come to mind, but...
