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!
