This KOA was a challenge to get to from the north. Poorly chosen options in my GPS caused it to take me through Pittsburgh, and then routed me along state route 51, winding around narrow, poorly maintained roads during crush hour. It took over an hour to cross town. Then to enter the campground, I had to negotiate a very sharp corner. (If you're going to this KOA, be sure to come in via I-70 to exit 54. The campground is less than a mile from that exit, and you avoid the sharp turn. However, that turn impedes watching for traffic to the right.)
Once there, I found the campground pleasant. It was hilly and well wooded, but the lanes were still easy to negotiate. My particular site was too short to park my truck directly in front of the trailer, but there was plenty of room to the side.
Getting into Pittsburgh to see the museum was a difficult as getting to the KOA in the first place. There is just no easy route. They all meander slowly through long series of little towns.
Although I liked my time in this park, if I ever return to the area, I will investigate options that might offer easier access.
Decent campsite, although gravel driveways at sites are not very level. Restrooms were large and fairly clean. The campground appeared to be mostly occupied by seasonal or even full-time residents. In the early morning (5-6a) when they all leave for work there is a lot of noisy pickup truck traffic over the gravel driveways.
