Uniontown KOA Holiday Where Memories Begin
By Trish Mann
Camping season is in full swing, and there is no better place to plan your next camping adventure than in Connellsville, Pennsylvania. Uniontown KOA is a camper’s paradise, located in the picturesque setting between the Youghiogheny River and the Great Allegheny Passage trail. Every site has a stunning view of the river or the trail and provides activities for all ages and abilities. Whether you are looking for a place to park your RV, pitch a tent or take it easy in a spacious cabin, you will discover why Uniontown has become a sought-after family tradition.
There are activities for everyone.
Great Allegheny Passage Trail: Stretching 150 miles from Cumberland, Maryland to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the trail entices bike riders, walkers, and hikers to explore the converted rail beds. The path travels through the Pennsylvania Highlands shaded valleys, winding rivers, and views of untamed nature. There are trail towns along the way approximately every ten miles. With a consistent surface of limestone and an average grade of less than 1%, it’s suitable for all experience levels.
Canoe, Kayak, and Tube the river: The experienced staff at Uniontown Holiday, for a fee, take you upstream where you can explore the area by water on a canoe or kayak. You can also take the lazy way back and float downstream, relaxing in your inner tube.
Fish the river: Popular with anglers, the Youghiogheny River is the perfect place to cast your line and see what you can bring in. You can even fish right from camp. The river is home to many fish species, including large and smallmouth bass, walleye, northern pike, rock bass, yellow perch, and pickerel.
These are just a few fascinating things to see while camping at KOA Uniontown.
Falling Water: Franklin Lloyd Wright, a famous American architect, designed this home in the 1930s and is known for its design incorporating nature and art. The house is built over cascading waterfalls and is now a national historic landmark.
Laurel Caverns: Situated below a 435 geological park, Laurel Caverns is Pennsylvania’s largest cave with more than four miles in passages.
Flight 93 National Memorial: September 11, 2001, will remain forever in our hearts, and this monument is to the men and women who lost their lives while saving countless others during a thwarted highjacking by terrorists.
KOA Uniontown makes camping life fun and memorable. Whether you bring the kids, grandparents, or just yourselves, everyone enjoys KOA camping, and Uniontown doesn’t skimp on amenities or indulgences which include playgrounds, a heated swimming pool, kids’ crafts, golf cart rentals, camp store, snack bar, Wifi as well as bingo, crafts & entertainment weekly.
There is nothing more fun than a theme weekend for those who camp regularly, and this KOA is not to be outdone.
Throughout the summer and into fall, the camp goes all out on theme weekends, such as Mardi Gras Weekend, Wine, Cheese, and Jewelry Please, Lua Weekend, Hillbilly Redneck Weekend, Wild Wild Western Weekend, and Ghouls and Gumdrops. And those are just some of the fun-filled weekends.
There is so much to do here but let’s face it, what you came for was a crackling fire warming the cool night air and ooey-gooey marshmallows roasting over the flames. This campground has got you covered no matter where you choose to lay your head at night.
KOA offers full RV hookups up to 80’ in length with designated patio areas and deluxe RV sites with additional outdoor furniture provided. Cabins of various sizes can accommodate 4-10 people and come with a full bath and shower, full and partial kitchens, propane grills, and outdoor patio areas.
Who says tent camping is hard? The deluxe tent camping site has water, electricity, and a tent pad of mulch for comfort. One-night camping is available on a grass pad if biking the GAP trail.
Camping is more than laying down your head at night. It means something different to everyone. For families, it is squeals from the children when they catch their first fish and the memory that will stay with that child for a lifetime.
Sometimes it’s the laughter of friends telling stories around the campfire, and others find peace in the call of tree frogs from the woods while some campers sleep their best listening to the familiar hoot of The Great Horned Owl.
Whatever brings you out under the stars, make sure to plan a visit to Uniontown KOA Holiday. The memories are here for the taking.
