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 You can find more info about that campground at: www.gaptrailcampground.com

Thank you! Thoughts about the Outflow Campground in Comfluence?

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.
