Go straight through & it is approx. 1 1/2 miles back into the campground. Rt. 40 West from VA/DC/MD - Make a right onto Rt. 381 - (North) Follow 381 approx. 6 miles into the park.

(If you have a large trailer or motor home-continue on Rt. 40 about 5 miles past the 381 turnoff & make a right onto the Chalk Hill Rd. Go approx. 7 miles to stop sign.

Go to second stop sign & make a right. This is the Chalk Hill Rd. Continue to Stop sign. Go straight through & it is about 1 1/2 miles into the campground.

    Overall impression was just okay. It is a very large campground with 200 plus sites so the noise level is fairly high but in all fairness 9PM to 7AM is "quiet time" and it was enforced.

    There was not enough bathing or restroom facilities for the amount of campers. The wait for facilities was about 20 minutes for showers and 5 minutes plus for restrooms. Even the men's room had a wait in the AM.

    Cleanliness was not overwhelming. I expect to find wet floors and some bugs in the restrooms but not spider web that are old enough for the young spiders to have hatched and moved on. Half the stalls in the ladies rooms were out of TP and not refilled the entire evening/AM that I was there.

    Would I stay there again? Yes if it was all that was available. Would I go out of my way to stay there again? Nope.

    Not far from Ohiopyle, is Tub run. It is corps of army eng. Last time I was there it was beautiful and well kept. Sites were along the lake, with electric.
