Cast for trout or launch a kayak (rentals available) into the magnificent Yough. Or set off on a bike ride of any length along the 150-mile GAP trail. Enjoy themed weekends with crafts, bingo, DJs and live bands, bonfires and music by the pool. Plan a day trip to Laurel Caverns, Kennywood or Idlewild amusement parks, Fort Necessity, Fallingwater (the most famous of Frank Lloyd Wright’s homes) or any of the many attractions of the Laurel Highlands just a half hour east. The Blue Canoe is part of Roadville Campgrounds, a modern collection of classic family-friendly campgrounds and RV parks. Those who visit are more than our customers – you’re our guests. Clean as a whistle while always staying one with the surroundings, a Roadville camp is your place to stop, stay and play in nature.

Easy access from the campground to the Yough for floatin’ and boatin’. We rent’em.
Float a day away on the beautiful Yough River in a kayak, tube or tube tracker!
Our team will drive you 3 miles upriver to Connellsville. Once at the river park, they’ll assist you as you enter the water and start your float back to camp. Typical float trips take as little as 1 1/2 hours on a canoe or kayak and 2 1/2 to 3 hours on a tube. Actual time spent on the river can depend on river conditions – fast or slow currents – and putting your back into it!
For up-to-date river level conditions, please follow this link: YOUGH RIVER LEVEL
River rentals are not available if river levels are above or projected to rise above 4 ft at the Connellsville gauge. Other conditions may prevent rentals. Please call ahead to book a trip.
Running right through the middle of the campground, the GAP (Great Allegheny Passage) is one of America’s best bike trails, where you will discover a nearly level trail along winding rivers, shaded valleys, and traditional small towns.

In Cumberland, the GAP joins the C&O Canal Towpath, creating a continuous trail experience, 333 miles long, to Washington, DC.
