Shenango Recreation Area is a Corps of Engineers facility located in western Pennsylvania near Sharon. It has a large campground with over 300 sites.

We arrived at Shenango Rec Area right after Labor Day and just a few days before the campground was due to shut down for the winter. As it was, only one camping loop was open, but there were plenty of sites. We chose site 43 for its water view, even though it was a non-hookup site.

Date of visit: Sep 2013

Unlike most COE campgrounds, Shenango doesn't offer that many waterfront sites. The ones that exist, though, are quite nice, such as site 49. We rated it the best site in the park.

While out for a walk, we came across this rather amazing fungus - it looked more like a flower.

What better way to end the day than by enjoying dinner looking out over the lake.
