Headed to PA need campground recomendations

We're headed to Pennsylvania this fall and are looking for your best campground recomendations. We will be trying to make the Fall Colors rally at Limestone and then will have 5 days before we need to be at Pittsburgh for business. We are looking for some idea of the best places to camp around Pittsburgh, where we can still be close enough to downtown for business. Thanks for the help!

While in the Pittsburgh area and if you are at all interested in the work of Frank L Write you should schedule a side trip to Fall Water east of Uniontown

We love Ohiopyle which would something to see in the fall. It is just below Pittsburgh. The Falling Waters home mentioned above is right outside of the park and is well worth visiting. If you did go to Ohiopyle, I would also suggest visiting Kentuck Knob, another FLW home that is just outside of the park's campground. Great bike trail along the river too. Here are some goofball, pre-Airstream photos Picasa Web Albums - fauxpasdenman - July 2008 Ohi... of my family visiting Ohiopyle. These are from '08, but we visit every year. We will be heading back over teh 4th.

Tikiman,
I'm glad you are considering the Fall Colors Forum Rally as I am one of the hosts. We hope to see you there.

Have you considered Pioneer Park Campground? It is about 1.5 hours from Pittsburgh. You may also want to take a look at pacamping.com for some ideas that will be closer.

I will also echo HowieE and Soyboy's suggestions for Ohiopyle and Falling Water.

HowiE & SoyBoy,

Thanks for the ideas! Yes, we are big Wright fans. We've done the Wright weekend in Oak Park, IL, toured many homes in the Midwest and been through Talliesin West in AZ. When we knew we would be headed to PA this year Falling Water was on the top of the list for visits. The business conference that my wife is involved in may have even planned a spouses tour to see it.

Deitz645,

We hope to see everyone there. As soon as we confirm our schedule I'll make any reservations that are required. Thanks for the campground recomendations I'll check these out.
