Need suggestions for Pittsburgh, PA

I am planning a trip for September and would like to spend a day looking around Pittsburgh on my way north. Any suggestions for a nice campground in the area?

When in that area we use Fox Den Acres in New Stanton about a half hour drive down the Pa Turnpike. Older park but clean and nice sites in the lower section plus far enough away from the road noise. There might be some parks closer but not as good reviews from what I have read.

Since you are heading north, are you coming up I79?

There is a KOA in Washington, PA, which is about 30 minutes south of the city.

Or you can keep heading north past the city to Indian Brave campground in Zelienople.

There is also a state park that is northwest of the city, that would be your closest option. Raccoon Creek State Park is very nice, but I've never camped there with an RV so can't give you any info on the site sizes.
