SW PA doesn't have a whole lot of options.
Private parks are usually really cramped. State parks were better, but they keep bumping the price up and the parks are getting worse and worse. Last year the price per night went up across the board and a lot of sites were converted to pet sites making some parks pets only. What a great feature, even if you don't have a pet, they charge an extra $2 per day for the privilege of cleaning up other campers poop.
This year they added a $4 "computer use" fee as it was described to me for staying in a PA park. You get to pay this whether you book on-line or at the park. That makes a night stay $36 if you are a PA resident. This year PA jacked the price of vehicle registration by 50% to help empty our wallets too.
My friends and I like to camp most every weekend. PA has lost out on several hundred dollars so far. This year we will go to Ohio a lot. It's a lot cheaper there even if you are out of state.
Got caught this weekend though. Went to Bel Air MD, but couldn't find a park close so we stayed at Codorus park. Tiny sites. A lot heavily sloped. On the way back we stopped at Cowans Gap. Lake side sites are tiny, laid out terribly and you get to pay the poop-site fee. The other side is much better but nothing great. Only one dump station for 200+ sites so you get to wait in line. Oh, and it's in the middle of the one of the loops nowhere near the main entrance. With the one way roads you have to exit the park and come back in to use it.
