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.

South East of Pittsburgh and not close, but we use 76 (Pa Turnpike) and some back roads to get around.

The link provided has an extra http in it so it doesn't work. Below is the correct link.

Pittsburgh & New Stanton Pennsylvania Campgrounds - Fox Den Acres Campground

Exit the PA Turnpike at the New Stanton exit (Exit 75) for Fox Den Acres.

It will be another good 'boys of summer' in the Burgh. Go Bucs!!!

Explore the city on Saturdays and Sundays. Traffic and parking is easier. Watch out for potholes and eat at Pirmani Brothers.

By mid April you will not have any real hard freezes. Since you will be using your rig you will be ok. Be ready for rain and a good amount of cloudy days.
