Tub Run Campground
Tub Run Campground
One of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers recreational sites on the Youghiogheny River Lake, the Tub Run Campground is situated along pretty little Tub Run, a creek that tumbles over ledges and down steep grades and eventually into the lake. The lake measures approximately 15 miles long and spans the Pennsylvania and Maryland state line. Originally constructed for the purpose of flood control, the lake has become a popular spot for waterskiing, motorboating, and freshwater fishing. Along its shore, the lake has lots of coves and inlets that provide nice places to fish for walleye and bass or to just escape (by boat or foot) for a quiet afternoon. Ohiopyle State Park, with rafting and bicycling concessions and plenty of hiking trails, is about a 25-minute drive from the campground. For information on rafting, biking, and hiking, stop by the campground registration booth on your way in. The town of Confluence, about 6 miles north, will provide your closest supplies. The primary reason for visiting Tub Run is, of course, its access to the lake and the activities it provides. You’ll find a beach for swimming near the campground and a boat launch area at the end of the road. The campground is well maintained and has clean, modern facilities that include flush toilets, hot and cold running water, and showers. It also has a playground and some wheelchair-accessible sites.
