Gap Trail Bikers Campground in West Newton

Stayed here on my second to last day to Pittsburgh from D.C. This was the only day I had rain on the entire trip. Really glad I stayed here. They had a power wash to clean off all the grime off my bike after a day of riding in the rain.

Appreciated the hot shower too. I had planned on taking a shower at my previous night's stay in Ohiopyle State Park but every bathhouse I walked to in the campground was closed for the season.

My wife and I stayed there during our hike. It's quite a unique place with a Hobbit theme. What really hooked it for me was when I saw the coffee pot on the counter next to the toaster and blender. I rarely turn down a cup of coffee or two.

Absolutely fantastic place to stay for the night! More luxurious shower facilities than you'll find in most hotels! Great lounging area. Awesome hosts. Just make a reservation - you won't regret it. Was one of the highlights of my trip.

This was my last stop for the night before Pittsburgh Excellent stopping spot for camping. They have a fully enclosed lobby/pavilion, kitchenette, bathroom and heated showers. The camping space is massive with grilling areas and seats to just view the river. The pavilion has a TV with cable to watch sports and other channels. Great setup that fully supports bikers on the GAP. Loved it here and would highly recommend!

Hi - planning a Spring trip and saw this. Very encouraging and makes me want to stay here.

Any other thoughts about the Campground? This was the only hit that came up when I searched the Forum about it.

This campsite is as described albeit the “pavilion” is not fully “enclosed” but is fully “covered”. I myself would not describe the camping space as “massive” particularly compared to others along the GAP Trail such as Husky Haven. That said, it is a nice camping site about 35 miles from downtown Pittsburgh. There are a number of places to eat within walking distance along with a good bike shop there also.

If all the amenities noted are important to you, I would recommend you call ahead of time to insure they all will be available in the early spring touring season

Thank you! Thoughts about the Outflow Campground in Comfluence?

Rivnuts from Homestead,PA on 01/30/2021 07:37 PM:
It’s a nice, state-operated campground with a large RV clientele. It has a large shower house. It sits at the base of the Youghiogheny River dam (hence the name) and is a short ride into the small town of Confluence. There are a handful of eateries in/near town and a capable bike shop. All in all it’s a nice place to overnight albeit a little pricey for a tent site compared to others along the trail

Note that you have to make a prior reservation online via the state recreation website as opposed to simply walking in.
