Mountain Top Campground is located at 873 Sun Mine Road, Tarentum, PA, in beautiful southwestern Pennsylvania, surrounded by tree-covered hills, farm fields, and small communities. But we’re also just 5 miles from the nearest highway, and only 30 minutes northeast of downtown Pittsburgh. From here, you can easily access everything the greater Pittsburgh area has to offer in activities, entertainment, dining, and sports. Or, you can just stay at your “home away from home” and enjoy the peace, quiet, and beautiful views from your site. Either way, our location has everything you need to make the most of your stay with us.
Please be aware: Google Maps and GPS devices have frequently been routing our campers through some terrible back road “short-cuts,” including low bridges and detours. Our beautiful, rural, “Mountain Top” location also means rural, mountainous roads, but we are easily accessed by even the largest RVs if you know how to go. Please remember that we know the best route to our location and follow our directions!
Bull Creek Road is CLOSED for bridge repair and resurfacing. Do not follow your GPS if it says to take exit 14 off of Route 28. Instead go 2 more exits north and take exit 16. Then follow the directions given below.
From any direction (see below for specific recommended routes from each direction):
Make your way to PA-28 between I-76 (Pennsylvania Turnpike) to the south and US-422 to the north; take exit 16 (Freeport/Millerstown); turn onto Route 908 WEST (Millerstown Road); drive approximately 5 miles (just past a Yahama dealer on the right); turn right at the next intersection onto Thompson Road; bear right onto Sun Mine Road; Mountain Top Campground is on the left at the top of the hill.
A note about the PA Turnpike: We know you might prefer not to pay tolls, but please be aware that it is the easiest, safest option, especially if you are over 30 feet long. Be prepared for possible challenges if you decide to take another route!
From points east: We recommend I-76 west (Pennsylvania Turnpike) to exit 48 (PA-28 north); get off at exit 16 then follow the directions above.
From points west: We recommend I-76 east (Pennsylvania Turnpike) to exit 48 (PA-28 north); get off at exit 16 then follow the directions above.
From points north: We recommend I-79 south to I-76 east (Pennsylvania Turnpike) to exit 48 (PA-28 north), OR I-79 south to US-422 east to PA-28 south (at Kittanning); get off at exit 16 then follow the directions above.
From points south: We recommend I-79 north to I-76 east (Pennsylvania Turnpike) to exit 48 (PA-28 north); get off at exit 16 then follow the directions above.
Another possible route from the south will take you through “Pittsburgh’s Front Door” (the Fort Pitt Tunnel, which opens directly on the downtown skyline), but it also includes bridges, left exits, quick moves across several lanes, substantial traffic, and the tunnel. It’s beautiful but not much fun in a larger vehicle. If you’re feeling brave: I-79 to I-376 east to I-279 north to PA-28 north. Avoid this route during rush hour periods as it nearly always backs up. We also do not recommend using any section of I-376 east of I-79 during peak hours.
