I recommend Rose Point north of Pittsburgh. As I said, getting into the city is easiest from the north. However, getting from the city south through the Ft. Pitt Tunnel or Liberty Tubes can be a PITA, depending on what time of day it is. However, you can go straight down I-79 and bypass the city to avoid a lot of traffic.
Yes, Mountain Top's website (Mountain Top Campground in Pennsylvania
) confirms that they only have water and electric. There is no mention on their website of a dump station or honey wagon service, but I have read reviews that say they do. I would suggest calling the campground for current information. The day rate is $60.00, but it doesn't say whether this rate is for 2013 or 2014. The day rate is discounted 1/2 price (except during special events) if you're an Escapees, Passport America, or Happy Camper member. For this area, $60.00 is expensive for just a water/electric site with no amenities. If you're paying full price, you can get a full hookup site with amenities at many of the campgrounds mentioned in this thread for about the same price or less.
Rose Point Park (Rose Point Park Campground - Western Pennsylvania Family Camping
) is located west of I-79 (Exit 99) off of US-422 west. It's before you get to the town of New Castle.
Bear Run is very convenient to I-79 (Exit 96). It's hardly a mile away.
