Camp next to the Youghiogheny River
Dravo Hiker-Biker Campground is an expansive trailside campground with enough open grassy space for 25-30 tents along the Youghiogheny River. It features two Adirondack-style shelters, eight picnic tables, a pair of composting toilets, potable water, and three fire rings with firewood available — thanks to the Mon/Yough Trail Council, which cuts and stacks this resource for travelers’ enjoyment. The campground also houses a 16’ x 20’ pavilion.
The campground sits adjacent to Historic Dravo Cemetery, a small graveyard dating back to 1812 and once accompanied by the two-story, wood-framed Dravo Methodist Church constructed shortly thereafter. The church burned twice — likely ignited by sparks from passing trains along the Pittsburgh & Lake Erie Railroad — and the property was abandoned in 1920.
Overnighting at Dravo Hiker-Biker Campground is free and first-come, first-served; no reservations are required or accepted.
