We are looking for a campground near Johnstown PA. We have an up coming rally and would like to camp nearby. Any suggestions?

Unless someone else has other information, the closest private campground to Johnstown I could find is Mirror Lake RV Camping and Fishing in New Florence, PA. Their website says they're 14 miles southwest (however, on the map, it looks more west to me) of Johnstown on PA-711. Judging from their rate schedule they appear to have only water and electric.

For state parks it's going to be Blue Knob State Park located east of Johnstown on PA-869.

I've never been to either of the above mentioned campgrounds.

If you want a full hookup site, I'd have to suggest Friendship Village Campground and RV Park In Bedford, PA. I've driven to Johnstown from the campground via PA-56. As I recall, it took about 45-60 minutes.

If you like trading paint with you're neighbor, then Friendship Village is your destination.

TandW:

You're right about what you say. However, those sites were developed long before the arrival of large RVs with slide-outs and awnings. I understand perfectly with what you're saying because I've camped in some of those sites and had to "strategically" position my TT to clear the trees, access the utilities and still leave enough room to park my TV somewhere. Many of those sites are downright awful for today's RVs.

But, have you ever camped in their new area of campsites? I Have. They're HUGE. The one I had was so long that I had at least 50 feet to the street with both my TT and truck parked in it. There's plenty of space between sites and mine was so level that I had to do nothing more than put down my stabilizer jacks once I positioned it. I must say that the new area is a job well done and hats off to the owners for implementing a well thought out plan to meet the needs of RVers. About the only negative thing I can say about the new area is that it's rather open.

Here's Friendship Village's Campground Map. The new area is in the top portion.

The new sites are in the 200-300 range. If you have a large RV, I would recommend asking for one of these when making a reservation.
