Tucked away in Ohiopyle State Park, Pennsylvania, Kentuck Campgrounds make for a beautiful and secluded getaway. A unique feature not to miss is the whitewater of the Youghiogheny River, ideal for rafting and whose milder sections you can slide down without any gear!

Book a site at Kentuck Campground for a chance to explore the Pennsylvania wilderness. Ohiopyle State Park is an amalgam of forest and river, whitewater and waterfalls included. Enjoy a range of activities with friends, family--there's a playground for the kids--or simply take the time and space for yourself.

The campground is nothing spectacular, but it is perfectly decent spot to get out of the city for a night or two. And it puts you in close quarters will some great hikes (and swimming) around Ohiopyle. Spots 164 through 167 are probably the best.

Gorgeous views, tall trees, peaceful wildlife, and mini adventures is what you will find camping at Kentuck Knob campground in Ohio Pyle. Wonderful for outdoor enthusiasts and families who want to unplug. My heart stand and I took our baby camping with us and it was so nice. There are options of renting a yurt for the person who is looking for little hassle, they have pull in campsites for RV's and popups, and then for the true naturist they have walk-in campsites that are set off the road a bit for those who want the ease of a bathhouse near by but still want to be deep in the trees. The campsite is full of walking trails, roads to bike on and. you can easily hook up with the Allegheny bike trail.
