Welcome to Friendship Village Campground and RV Park located in beautiful Bedford County, PA. Here in this picturesque countryside, the British built a fort to withstand Indian raids. Today, campers come to visit the nearby Fort and also to relax in a place where life moves along at a slower pace. The campground has a family oriented atmosphere and activities. It provides excellent facilities for campers in tents as well as big rigs. Come and stay with us and visit area attractions.
