Hello all,
I stay at Rose Point Park campground near Butler, Pa. on old Rt 422 for my daughter's
wedding. In a word "JUNK" No 50 amp service, the cable TV on the website is only if you
are in the cabins not RV sites, Internet works only in or near cabins not near RV parking, Lots are small and grass and rock not very level. Very narrow and windy road to get to park. It was clean with mostly perminet TT's or park models only 15 pull through sites for visitors. I tended to scare the heck out of them when I pulled up with a 40' Safari pulling a pick/up on a dolly. They also charge 3 dollars for visitors that are staying for more than a half hour. Really messed me up being father of the bride and it is not mentioned on they're site or I would have gone somewhere else.
Thanks all!

We stayed at a place just above Miami, FL and let me tell you, what a sh** hole. We were tired and no other place near by. Felt like we had to sleep with a gun in hand and one eye open. The next day we called another place and they said we could go there but we would have to park our trailer on the public street. You bet. We're haulin 3 harleys and I'm going to park the trailer on a public street near miami,FL. Not even if I was drunk. We gave up our intent to visit the area and proceeded to KeyWest at full speed.

Just a comment about Miami --when I'm in that area, there's a couple NPCG on Hwy 41 -- also, Everglades ... no HU, of course, but great places for short-term or overnight.

Also, have stayed a few times at he Homestead AB ... no MCG there -- but Security lets you park in the gym parking lot. Only thinking about overnights, of course, in a travel pinch... and they have showers in the gym, etc. Small BX syle commissary.

At one time, Homestead has MCG plans in the works, but then something held them up -- don't know the MCG status at this time ...

I know I got into this thread late however I will say the Pittsburgh area is near hopeless for a campground. I'm from around Natrona and New Ken and when we go back to visit we normally stay up in Harrisville at Kozy Rest. Yeah it is a bit of a drive down but park is nice. This past year we had a family renunion at Westmoreland Park and low and behold unbeknownst to me three of the other campers at Kozy Rest were shirt tail cousins and I had been drinking suds with them the night before the reunion and did not even know it.

For the other posters concerning Miami my inlaws live there. When I head south I stay at Larry and Penny Thompson (muni park) off of Eureka. About 1 mile off the turnpike and about the same from Hwy 1 (south dixie hwy). Its close enough to Homestead you can shop at the Bizmart. Campground is near the Miami Zoo and I heard in its earlier days it was a mango orchard owned by the University of Miami.
