This is a nice campground with really nice owners. We have camped here several times while visiting family and friends in the area, and will definitely return in the future. It is a quiet campground that has clean and well kept grounds, restrooms, and laundry facility. The only negative we found is the laundry facility could use at least one more washer and dryer since there is currently only one of each. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a well run campground! Seasonal sites are in a different section of the park. They keep their rigs and landscaping very clean. The casual camper will find the sites fairly spacious and level. Nice fishing pond for the kids. The bath house is excellent and new. My only complaint is the laundry. One washer & dryer for public use. The grounds are clean and roads well maintained. Maybe someday they will upgrade the laundry facility and playground area. The owners are very kind and friendly. The store is well stocked and priced fair. I will come back the next time in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice place to stay. These people are very nice. The sites are nice. We have stayed here a few times, and will come back again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

PPA rate. Family owned and operated, no one lives on site and office closes at 5PM. Seasonal units are in a totally separate area and appeared clean and tidy. Staff was friendly and helpful, responded quickly to questions about cable TV. There is no over the air TV here. Wi-Fi on site was good although at night it slowed way down. Without the filter the water was cloudy and the color of tea. With the filter there wasn't a problem. Heavy rains for two days revealed drainage issues in the lower CG. The CG is fairly new, a work in progress and should get better with the passage of time. While in the area a must see is the Flight 93 Memorial. We would return if in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Large sites with plenty of spacing from neighbors. Owners very friendly and are constantly improving campground. Gravel quarry close by, but can barely be heard at night and very little during day. Seasonal sites in their own area and all are very clean with no junk around. Very clean and nice looking campground. One busy weekend so far but the noise was at a minimum and people respectful of other campers. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great looking campground which appears to be well maintained. I did not use the bathhouse facilities, but did go in to check them and they were absolutely spotless. Nice shower facilities with plenty of room. The site we had was plenty big for our 40 ft. rig and tow vehicle. All staff encountered we're friendly and eager to help. Nightly rate shows Passport discount. Included 50 amp service, water, sewage and cable. Each site has picnic table (in good shape) and fire ring. If you stay for any length of time be aware they only have 1 washer and dryer. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have camped at Hickory Hollow twice now. It is a small newer park that seems to be still building on what they have. Nice pull through sites. Bath house is new, very clean, and well kept. We have stayed in the off season so it has not been too busy. Nice play area for the kids , a pond for fishing and a small pool for swimming. We will definitely be coming back. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Rate quoted is the off season Passport America rate. Sites are large enough. Each has a fire pit. Surrounding area is hilly as is the campground. Check in was easy and staff pleasant. Only one washer and dryer and cost is high - $2.00 to wash/$2.00 to dry. Only one shower/bathroom and a distance away from most of the sites. Would stay here again. Very clean park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We camped here during the summer and had such a great experience, we came back in the fall. We had a great experience again, but I think they need a set quiet time and enforce it. During the week in the summer, the place was all but deserted or retirees who were quiet and respectful. During our fall visit, come Friday evening it turned into an up-scale redneck hangout with loud people and music into the wee hours. This doesn't set well when camping with small children. That being said, they have decent activities and the scenery is beautiful! It is also a very clean CG and you can see they are continuously putting $ back into it! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A couple of our nights were PA rate but the weekend was full price ($30). We were there on a busy weekend. Not sure if anyone actually lives on site, but it was LOUD until almost 1am. Employees were very nice and easy to work with. Beautiful countryside. Pull throughs could be difficult if you had a longer vehicle ... ours is a 30' fiver and we had a harder time with some of the corners. Internet was free but didn't work. Company who services their internet doesn't work weekends. Bathrooms were sparkly clean and they had a nice play area for the kids as well as a small, enclosed dog run for some off leash time. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice enough park but not a 9 as others posters wrote. Had alot of problems with electric (voltage too high). Very dusty gravel roads,all sites need a few yards of gravel to level them side to side. Clean bath houses. Nice owners, close to attractions and nice countryside. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We just returned from a very relaxing 3 night stay here. It's a quiet smaller place in rural Somerset County. There is someone working to improve the place from dawn until dusk. Everything was great from the call to make reservations until we checked out. We plan on going back in Oct. There are nearby craft festivals as well as a haunted house across the street. CG was quiet during the week. Seasonal are separate but very neat. There were some construction workers staying in the long term area who were very friendly and quiet. Sparkling new pool, catch and release fishing, horseshoes, dog play area, pristine new bathrooms and laundry. Most of the transient sites are pull through. No problems with Wi-Fi or cable. Unlike some places, they don't try to gouge you for extras like AC. They even refund visitors fee if they stay less than 2 hours. They also give AAA discount. Looking forward to going back. Weekends fill up quickly! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Large level sites, gravel parking surrounded by grass. Very clean bathhouse. Friendly staff and campers. Great places for our Golden Retriever to walk and play. Pretty spot central to lots of attractions. Spotty Wi-Fi was provider problem. Rate was PA for 5 of 7 nights. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Stayed here once before and enjoyed it. It is quiet and smaller. We stayed at sites by 2 cabins and liked them a lot. The only complaint I would have is that the hookups were clear at the front of the site for w/e/c. This made it difficult to reach. The sewer hookups were awesome though. I wish more campgrounds would do sewer hookups like this. Will go back again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Well laid-out, clean, well-managed campground in a rural setting six miles out of town. Pretty countryside. Friendly, helpful staff. Easy in and easy out gravel pull-throughs can handle big rigs. Plenty of space and grass between sites. Nice playground and swimming pool. Pretty lake visible from some campsites. Paddle boats. Limited cable TV selections. WiFi can be slow. The pleasant bathhouse appears to be new and is among the cleanest we have experienced. Thirty to 60 minutes from several sightseeing destinations. We strongly recommend this very superior campground. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Access to this park was pretty good. Had to travel through the town of Somerset, but it was easy. No bridges. No tunnels. No steep hills, just little mounds. Out in the country and quiet. Very near to Falling Waters and Kentuck Knob and Ohiopyle. Lots to do in area. Could even drive to Ligonier for the day. No park lighting, so dark at night. There is a separate area for campers that leave their rig year round. We stayed in our 45' motorcoach and had no trouble navigating the park. The bathhouse is a little far away as is the pool and office. Each in a different direction. Maybe it works "in season." Everything in good repair. Would have preferred paved roads. Satellite TV came in well and Verizon cell phone reception was good. Used our own internet. Lady in office gives good directions. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is 6 miles S of Somerset on the PA pike and about 25 minutes from Falling Water and two other Frank Lloyd Wright homes. Also it is 25 minutes to the Flight 93 Memorial and the Memorial of the Johnstown flood. Access to the campground is very good, and the interior roads and pads are crushed and rolled gravel. This is a former dairy farm of 220 acres: you are surrounded by corn fields, hills dotted with cows and trees, and a pretty lake and forest. Lots of places to walk, hike and walk the dog. Can fish in the lake. Each site is really double wide, and has a minimum of 2500 sq feet. Drainage is great and sites were dry even after a 2" rain storm. It is spotless and the staff is friendly and attentive. We mentioned it did not have a dog run, and the next day, it had a large grassy fenced run installed. We will come back here again. It was beautiful and relaxing. The seasonal sites are separate and are manicured! What a treat. One of the nicest places we have every camped. We camped here in a Motorhome.
One word describes this campground: Peaceful. The setting is lovely. It’s very easy to relax here. Sites are spacious and level. Power was solid. No Wi-Fi, but it’s definitely in the plans as soon as it’s available in the area. It’s a short drive to “town” and many sights to see. Our week long stay was cut short by a family emergency, and the friendly staff was very accommodating and understanding. We look forward to returning when our travels bring us back to this beautiful part of the country. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice well kept campground. The lady in the office was VERY nice. Nice pool and clean facilities. We stayed near the playground which was nice for the kids. Only here for one night (was very quiet too), and we would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
After one night, we were so pleased that we visited the office and added two nights to our stay (for a total of 8 nights). Very pleasant park with large sites and good utilities. Verizon service (phones and aircard) works, though the signal is weak. Makes an excellent base camp for the many and varied sights and activities in the Laurel Highlands area of PA. Also, summertime weather is a little cooler here, since the elevation is around 2,000 ft. Rate shown is Passport America rate, good except Fri. and Sat. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Wonderful park! Sites were level and wide will well established lawn and fire rings. Staff helpful. We did not camp with children but they had great activities for them including water slide, craft activities and horse-drawn wagon rides. Catch and release fishing pond, paddle boats and new pool. Grocery store and restaurants in nearby Rockwood. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A nice campground 6 miles from the town of Somerset. Overnight sites are separate from the seasonal sites, and were quiet and dark at night. No trees or shade, old picnic table, and no Wi-Fi were detractors, but the gravel site was level and the hookups worked well. Even though out in the country, the Verizon cell and AirCard worked well. Overall a nice park that should get better as facilities are improved. We'd stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here on the way to Gettysburg. We viewed their website and they said they had Wi-Fi, however when we got there, the Wi-Fi still hadn't been installed. We could relate since we have been on the receiving end of "waiting for the ISP provider". They are still waiting for the permits from the city for their pool. This place is magnificent, the sites are really big, the bathrooms are immaculate, but quite a hike, although both of us could use the exercise. A lovely place to stay with no freeway noise or trains!!! Be sure to stock up on groceries before you arrive, it is quite a ways to a grocery store. We visited the covered bridges and Flight 93 memorial while were there. The $15 per night is for Passport America; what a steal. We will be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed here for two nights while visiting attractions in the area (Fallingwater, Johnstown, and Flight 93 Memorial). Good for an overnighter or a couple of days -- not too far from PA Tpke. I wish they had mowed the grass recently. As a result, the campground looked a little scruffy. It rained while we were there and water pooled at the bottom of our stairs. We stayed in the pull-through section and the sites are pretty level. Gravel roads and sites. There is a beautiful, new restroom/shower house, but it's on top of a hill and it's quite a hike to get up there. There seem to be few sites in the immediate area of the bath house. There is also a nice picnic pavilion at the top of the hill. We do plan to return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Definitely a work in progress. As I told them, I can't wait to see it as it matures! A very pleasant CG. We were alone in our section - three spaces away from us, cows meandered back and forth grazing! A very peaceful park! We simply overnighted on our way to Virginia but would definitely return if in the area - for a single night or for an extended stay. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Pros: Easy in and out. Large, mostly pullthru sites. Clean and attractive. Fishing available in lake (catch and release). Stay 6 days and your 7th is free. Good Sam and other discounts available. Cons: Poor reception for cell phones, but with a little walking you can find a spot. Basic cable (20 channels). No WiFi. Limited access to office and store. Enjoyed our stay at this campground. Will recommend and stay at this campground again when in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
New campground in it's third season and a work still in progress. They hope to put a pool in next year and did have a makeshift waterslide while we stayed there. They also offered activities and have a great fishing lake. Sites are nice sized and fairly level with very easy access. Large check-in area and wide entrance made it very easy to enter. Beautifully maintained property but also very open. Extremely quiet and peaceful despite rock quarry being nearby. Owners and staff are wonderful and very accommodating from phone reservation until we departed. We loved this place and we will definitely camp here many times. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We left as soon as we saw what the campground was. Manager was going to charge us by the foot since we were over 26 feet but since we had already been quoted a price, the manager stuck with the original price. This is no place for a big rig or RV. I wouldn't recommend anything over 30 FOOT - the sites are shallow and is more set up for seasonal than for weekend camping. The transient spaces are not well defined or well kept. We couldn't find a decent place to set up so we had to scramble and find a near by state park and didn't stay. The owner charged us for a full night anyway even though we didn't stay and we couldn't fit the way we needed. The only good thing about the whole experience is that the lady was nice. Although charging us a full night was a little bit much. I'd say $10 would have been sufficient for the trouble. Again this is not for large RVs and is very tight - visual surroundings not very stimulating either. WE DID NOT STAY. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We've camped here in the past and this year, we see a great improvement in the campground and staff. They are cleaner, friendly, more helpful. The kids activity are great! The pool is clean and the great area in primative where you can fish. The golf carts are not as bad as it use to be. I recommend this campground! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We came here on a whim. It wasn't impressive. But I think a lot of the other negative comments on here might be overblown. The check-in lady acted very friendly and professionally to me. My site was clean. I don't remember being any problems anywhere. We camped here in a Tent.
Drunks, golf carts, drunks on golf carts, pit bulls running loose and loud, fowl mouthed adults and teens. A great place if you want to spend a weekend with your family around people with ZERO class. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Host was friendly. This is a rowdy bunch. Lots of drinking, lots of golf carts, and traffic in campground. Mostly seasonal people, very few people who were passing through. Too far from turnpike, very hilly road and sharp turns. They said no pit bulls, or rottweilers. First thing we saw was a pit bull and then two rottweilers not tied up. Scary place, will never stop again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is the most awful campground I've ever been to. The golf carts are non-stop. The people were loud until 1:00 am. They blast their radios on the golf carts. None of the rules were enforced. This is really a trashy trailer court that does not care about the average weekend camper. No one was friendly. I would never recommend this to anyone. Unless you are partier and like to up all night long. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We did not stay at this campground. Not sure campground is the right word. It is more like a trailer park with hundreds of campers jammed next to one another. Most of the sights appear to be seasonal. Everybody has a golf cart and a loud radio. This place reminds me of a large block party. We drove through, but did not stay. Would prefer Wal-mart parking lot over this campground. Sorry, but true. We camped here in a Motorhome.
If you like to do nothing but get drunk and play horseshoes, then this is the place for you. The campground is very dirty and not well maintained at all. I was a seasonal camper here because several of my friends were here. Ninety-five percent of the campground are seasonal campers. This place looks more like a trashy trailer court. None of the so called rules are enforced. Everybody owns at least one or two golf carts or ATVs and they run nonstop. Forget about trying to take a walk on the road, you're likely to get run over. The State Police are often called to this campground due to fights or theft. The grass is hardly ever mowed and when it is, the grass gets blown all over your vehicle or camper. There is absolutely no respect from the staff. However the seasonal campers are very friendly. There is a large fishing lake, but it is so overgrown with weeds inside that fishing is impossible. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Lots and lots of seasonals. Lots and lots of golf carts. This campground has the potential to be something special. There are lots of things for the kids and a nice pool. If you stay here expect a non-stop stream of golf carts running from morning until after dark. If you have a golf-cart and our just dying to run the tires off, this is your campground! We camped here in a Motorhome.
I can't believe this CG has not been rated prior to my rating. This CG is very lovely, but is 90% permanent park models, or TT/MH's with permanent fixtures. There are several fishing area and playgrounds. The laundry facilities consisted of 1 W&D, and a sink. There are TONS of planned activites for kids on the weekends. Watch out for golf carts EVERYWHERE! Initially, we were told that we had the last available spot for a busy weekend, but when the owner (who was leading us to our spot) decided we wouldn't fit into this narrow spot on a steep incline, we were given a lovely spot on top a hill with a beautiful view. I would suggest if you stay here, insist you get a spot in the upper levels, which are mostly permanent park models. For the most part, the permanents are lovely, well maintained park models, but there are some run down, dilapidated campers that need cleaned up. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
