Located in historic and beautiful Bedford County, Pennsylvania, where we have more covered bridges than stoplights! Life here seems to move at a slower pace, and we like it that way. We're family-oriented, providing activities and games for everyone, so be sure to bring the kids and grandkids along! Our park is "big rig friendly," offering shaded and non-shaded sites, with a variety of pull thru and site hook-ups available. We even have campsites along our lower lake and beside the trout stream. Bedford County offers plenty to do and see, but many guests come here just to relax. You can challenge your companions to a round of miniature golf or a game of laser tag, swim in our 2 pools, play shuffleboard or horseshoes, walk or bike the 1/2 mile track around our 5 acre lake, or paddle a boat on our lower lake. Fishermen will love to test their skills with the bass stocked in our lakes. Everyone is welcome to our Saturday Night "Gospel Sings" held in the old barn. Afterwards, enjoy fresh, popped popcorn made over an open campfire in a large black kettle. We're freeway-close, just two miles off the Pennsylvania Turnpike at Exit 146, but a world away from what you know. Whether you're here just for the night, or plan an extended stay, come see us at Friendship Village Campground and RV Park.

This is a great campground. They have the facilities that you would need for kids, they have the facilities for older children, and they have the facilities for adults. Definitely can tell they are family oriented, and they enforce the rules. We have not had a disappointing stay so far. We always try to get the sites near the seasonal campers. If you look at the campground map you’ll see there is basically two sections. The one section hovers around the one pond. We tried to avoid this section. The only reason being is the last time we stayed down that section we were finding fish hooks on the campsite. My niece actually got one caught in her foot and she had to go to urgent care. Using treble hooks is against the campground policy, but if you are down in those sites near the pond I strongly recommend you are wearing shoes or sandals everywhere you go.

Friendship Village Campground in Bedford, Pa. Overall, I give the campground 4.5 out of five stars. The campground is nestled on the outskirts of Bedford Pennsylvania and is a very easy location to travel to regardless of your rig size. Check in was extremely easy particularly if you pay for your stay upfront. In that case all you need to do is walk into the office and they will have your packet ready for you and you’re headed to your site within a minute. The office staff was extremely friendly and you can tell that this is a family owned and religious-based campground. The campground is quite spread out through the property with sites ranging from primitive campsites to full hook up big rig sites. There are multiple ponds on the property however only one of them can be fished in. No license is required for fishing here. There are also two pools at each end of the campground and they are very well-maintained and have lifeguard supervision. The pool hours or a little later than most campgrounds as they open at 11 through the week and 12 on Sunday. The campground does maintain a policy of having to wear a shirt or a cover-up when not in the pool vicinity but that was not really a big issue. The lower pool is right beside the main office which also includes an arcade and a very nice miniature golf course. The upper pool is larger and also well maintained. Neither pool has provided seating so you will need to bring your own camp chairs or towels to sit on. They also do not provide umbrellas but allow you to bring your own as long as they are 5 feet wide or less. There are many playgrounds spread out across the property as well as a jumping pillow and a very well-built gaga ball pit. We stayed at site number 41 for the weekend and have no complaints at all. It’s a little more of a tight packed area versus the rest of the campground but it was in good vicinity to everything. For tent campers I recommend staying in the area of sites 5-25 as there is a very nice bathhouse very close by. For big rig campers, you need to stay at the upper portion of the campground at sites 200-500. In my opinion, the best sites to stay at if you have kids are sites 145–171 as those are right beside the jumping pillow, playground and gaga ball pit. The property had a movie showing in their barn on Saturday night (Despicable Me) and they also seem to schedule a lot of live entertainment, mostly Bluegrass. The staff on the property is virtually nonexistent minus trash pickup, lifeguards, and office staff...which I think is not a bad thing. I imagine if we would have needed anything, it would have been easy to find a staff member. If you have any issues with your camping rig, there is a full-service RV dealership basically at the entrance to the campground where you can buy virtually anything that you may require. I only give this campground 4.5 out of five stars primarily due to its location. There is really nothing to do in Bedford Pennsylvania. You are limited to the activities within the campground unless you travel to another township to find something to do. There are no hiking trails in the campground however it was quite nice to walk through the campground at 5 o’clock every morning. I would absolutely return here again, the rates were very reasonable for the value to get out of it. Even though our campsite was close to the fishing pond, it was a little tighter than the other larger sites and I think I would attempt to stay in those next time. All in all, this is a great family (non-commercialized) campground and I would recommend staying here.

We have stayed at this campground for the last four years. Each time we have asked for and received the same site. Great place, especially if you have children. Pets are welcome, as long as on a leash when you leave your site. There is a lot to doin the campground and in the nearby town of Bedford. Especially if you love antiques and flea markets.

We booked an RV site. The site was very nice and large. It was stone and very level, easy to get backed in and set up. We booked a golf cart for the time we were there. Great idea because this campground is huge. We were able to drive to the big lake and fish. My husband had all the luck with fishing me I caught mostly grass and sticks. The fishing is catch and release. Two nice stores on the property for anything you might need. Two very nice pools with life guards. This is the kind of campground were you immediately feel like everyone is family. We really enjoyed our stay and will continue to camp here for many more years. Also the restrooms and the showers are both large and very clean and plenty of them around the campground. If you are looking for a nice quiet place to camp where it is convenient to a lot of local attractions this place is for you!! I highly recommend this place!!!

Spent Memorial Day weekend at Friendship Village. Very nice campground, well maintained and grass mowed. We stayed in a cabin, which was fine for two adults, but would have been a tight fit for 3 kids (there are beds for 5). There was also a mini-fridge and table/benches which was helpful for meals. The bathhouse/restrooms were always clean, and near the laundry room. There are two camp stores, one had ice cream and groceries, the other one had shirts/hats and toys. We like the pond with a walking path. There are things to do, such as mini-golf, swimming, and catch & release fishing. A very nice stay!
