Even on a crowded summer weekend, you’ll find some peace and quiet at any of the walk-in tent-camping sites. The river in the park is a mecca for whitewater enthusiasts, especially the Class III and IV rapids of the Lower Yough (pronounced “Yock”), which follows the river from the launch area at Ohiopyle to the park boundary. On a summer weekend, the river will be a nearly continuous line of rafts, canoes, kayaks, and duckies from the put-in to the take-out. On weekends before Memorial Day and after Labor Day, and on most weekdays, it is considerably less crowded.

Went midweek during the late summer so it was not very active (very nice) was at walk up site 52 like it said in the book quiet and spacious. Campground is clean and well organized. Ampitheater and nature talks a nice touch as well. Campground has good access to bike trail and the town of Ohiopyle, but the 1/4 mile connector trail is pretty steep. Saw a bear run across the road one morning and a camper reported a bear in the camp ground one night - they tell you to put your food in your car at night - so DO IT. Overall very enjoyable, I will go back again
