The Great Outdoors

RV camping at Gaslight Campground means immediate access to vast wilderness. Miles of rolling mountains are there for exploring and adventure. Allegheny National Forest is one of the larger parks in Pennsylvania, covering over half a million acres. There are around 150 miles of established trails, all with different features for hikers to discover. Some ascend a sheer mountainside, rewarding stalwart hikers with a sweeping panoramic view of the Allegheny Valley. Other trails descend deep into swamps and meadows that teem with wildlife. Over 300 different species of mammals, including foxes, beavers, white-tailed deer, and shy black bears, dwell in the lush woods.Around 40 miles of trails are shared with horseback riders, ATVs, and bicycles. In winters, when snow blankets the region in deep, soft snow that muffles all sounds, the trails are opened up to snowmobiles, cross-country skiing, and snowshoeing. Discover the magic of the woodlands clad in white sugar and icing.Outdoor adventurers should keep an eye out for hunters during the hunting season. Wearing blaze orange is highly recommended. All hunters should obtain the appropriate permits and observe bag limits. Pennsylvania game wardens are known to be strict and will often impose hefty fines for violations.In addition to Allegheny National Forest, there are several smaller state parks and state forests surrounding Gaslight Campground. Oil Creek State Park was the site of the world’s first oil well used for commercial purposes. Now retired, the park has been transformed into a picturesque, quaint valley. Four known waterfalls are scattered through the park, fed by babbling creeks that gurgle throughout the year.

Exploring the Area

In the far northwestern Pennsylvania, the remote region is a mix of farms, mountains, and tiny mining and lumber towns. Explore the twisting mountain roads in an Airstream rental and discover the charms of various mountain towns. Many are historic, dating back to the early 1800s, and driving through is like stepping back in time. There are many homes and buildings that retain their original architectural features. In Foxburg, PA is the oldest continuously-operating golf course in the United States. No longer exclusive, the fairway is open to any and all golfers.Butler was ranked the 7th-best small town by Smithsonian Magazine. It’s in particular well known for two annual events: the Butler Fall Festival, at which hundreds of small businesses and local artists and crafters set up stalls. It typically has live entertainment and a car show. Butler is also one of the few areas in Pennsylvania in which Jeeps are permitted to go off-roading. The Jeep Festival, held in June, is a fun event for people to learn how to off-road safely, and there are several competitions, too.Punxsutawney Phil, made famous by Groundhog Day movie, and his family can be visited at Punxsutawney, PA. The rambunctious rodents scamper and play all day, interrupted by frequent naps. The town also has antique stores, cute restaurants, and a historic district.At the end of long rambling hikes through the deep Pennsylvania woods, retreat into the comfort of a motorhome rental. Listen to the sounds of nature as the sky darkens and stars appear overhead.

Questions about RVs?


What type of RV should I choose?


Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Do the RVs have bathrooms?


Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


How does check-in work?


Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
