Check out Shenango Recreation Area. It is run by the US Army Corps of Engineers and is north of Sharon, PA. You can reserve sites at www.reserveamerica.com
I recommend COE parks. Level, big lots, good prices, quiet, swimming, hiking, etc.
I also recommend you check out www.pacamping.com
. Select region 1. I have stayed at Rose Point. It's okay. Close to McConnell's Mills State Park. Good hiking, old fashioned grist mill at the bottom of the gorge. Bear Creek is beyond Rose Point (422W to 79S. Portersville Exit. This park abuts Moraine State Park. Swimming, hiking and boating. Large number of perm's, but they are seperate from overnighters. Avoid Cooper's Lake. Use to be family oriented and is now more about events.
Maybe I'll see you out that way this summer. I'm originally from Ellwood City, PA and used to visit Y'town and Boardman often. Still have family there and try to get back once per year.
Happy Camping </div></BLOCKQUOTE>
Thanks for the information. A COE or state park would be fine except with little kids we would really like a campground with planned activities. Also, a POOL is a must (2 people going with us have lake phobias)
I was told by other people that Rose Point has small sites but lots of planned activities. If that is the case I think that I am going to go there since the KOA is around $20 more per night.
Thanks everyone. Any last opinions are appreciated. I will make sure to post where we ended up and how it was late in the summer after we get back.
