Nice campgrounds near Western Pa?

AS winter is upon us, we are already missing our camp time. Looking for suggestions for camp sites with-in 150 miles of Pittsburgh. Summersville, WV south to Western NY north, State College East to Zanesville, Ohio west. We would like to expand our camping locations. Hook-ups are preferred, but boon-docking is OK. We like large wooded sites with some space between camp sites. Recommendations would be much appreciated.
We currently have a seasonal spot at a campground in Sherman, NY called the Brushwood Folklore Center. It is a GREAT Campground. Family oriented and Naturist. We have no intentions of giving up our seasonal spot, but do want to get out and explore new places. So if you know of any campgrounds you would not hesitate to recommend, let us know.

One of my favorite state parks is a little out of your range (245 miles from Pittsburgh), but if you like hiking waterfalls, Ricketts Glen State Park has 21 of them. A very pretty fall trip...

I liked the Erie KOA Kampgrounds when we stayed there on an overnight stop during a cross-country trip. Wooded sites near a pond with hook-ups. We were traveling with the Compact Jr. at the time. We generally get the water + electric sites since they're cheaper, and I don't mind using a central dump station.

I liked the Laurel Highlands State park when I was there many years ago. We now go to Scottyland near Somerset as we have relatives there camping
Scottyland primative area is nice, near the creek. The main campground is crowded, like a little city.
Money will buy a fine dog, but only kindness will make him wag his tail.
