Johnathan Run Trail Ohiopyle

A few weekends ago we camped at the Federal Outflow Campground in Ohiopyle. It was a little RV-heavy, and the tentsites were placed up against a fence that separated the ground from a more permanent RV park, but overall it was fairly quiet and a pleasant experience. You could hear the water flowing through the dam outflow as a constant white noise, with announcements in the morning blasting warnings about increase in water levels. So, not the best, but certainly not the worst.

We also took a couple hours to hike the 1.7 mile Johnathan Run Trail, although the trail never actually seemed to arrive at the big waterfall on that website. I suspect we should've have turned off at the Sugar Run Trail to see it. Who knows!

When LL Bean was having a 20% off tents deal we went all out and purchased the King Pine 4 tent. It's tall enough to stand in, leaves some room next to the air mattress, and has a screened-in porch area. It was time to take our comfort car camping to a new level. A level in which one can change clothing and actually stand inside the tent!

Oooh, Ohiopyle is so pretty. We camped there last year at the "hike in" (more like walk 30 feet in) sites and they were blissfully far from the RVs.
