I did a quick search and in addition to the Madison KOA, there is a KOA in Washingtom, PA, two Passport America Parks(one of which is also an Escapees 50% park), and two Escapees Discount parks within 25 miles of downtown Pittsburg. There are others listed on the Woodall's website.

I have only stayed at the Madison KOA off of I-70. It is an OK park.

We stayed in the Washington KOA. The park was okay.

The roads to the park were extremely exciting with our rig. The last road to the park is barely two skinning cars wide and when a Volvo tractor meets a school bus, someone had to give. Since we were against a dirt wall, the school bus had to move over.

Pittsburgh is spelled with an "h". That's why Steeler Fans call it "the 'Burgh". Heh.

Because of Pittsburgh's unique topography what CG will be best for you will depend on what part of town you need to be in. Three rivers in steep walled valleys makes travel in certain directions a challenge.

There are very few parks near Pittsburgh. Our stix and brix was in Washington 25 miles south of the city and we return there each year. We have stayed at all of these parks south and east of the city. The description of the Washington KOA are right on and you can add a lot of highway noise. Do not stay at Whispering Pines near Washington, the power is terrible. Madisson KOA is ok. Last year we stay at Pine Cove and it seems to be the best, but is very expensive.

If you need to be on the north side of the "Burgh" you don't want to stay south of the city...the traffic could really slow you down. Unfortunatley there just aren't a lot of things available especially if you have a long 5th wheel. Do not do Bear Run in Portersville. While it is a sweet place (and the original owners were very dear friends of my parents)it is not built for big rig. You might check this one out.
Indian Brave campground
It is about 30 miles north of the city with easy access to I-79. I have never personally been there but it is gated and has been there many years. If you stay there then take time to go north on RT 19 and eat lunch at the Log Cabin. The food is wonderful.

We are booked at Rosepoint for a week in July. We've stayed there before. It's maybe 30ish miles North near New Castle. A decent park, my 35 footer fits and the rates aren't terrible. We have a wedding in Pittsburgh and family in New Castle.

There are few campground choices in Pittsburgh. We can vouch for Washington-Pittsburgh KOA. It is at the junction of Interstates 70 and 79, which affords easy access and exit, regardless of the direction you're heading. The owners are very welcoming and accommodating; there is a nice pool and the restrooms are dated but clean. That said, this campground is in Western Pennsylvania where the roads are stunningly beautiful ... on a motorcycle. Many roads are narrow and twisty, but that is a characteristic of the region, not just the campground.

That's right. We take offense to incorrect spelling. :o) It is the only town that ends in "burgh" that still has an "h" at the end. All others have dropped it.
