The Lions Den Cafe and Deli is a small breakfast and lunch deli. We have a no frills parking lot with plenty of room for your camper, fifth wheel, or motorhome.
The location is at a sometimes busy intersection. It can be noisy with traffic at times. It's much quieter on weekends.
You can plug your 15 amp cord into our building, or run your generator. We have an outside faucet if you need to top off your tanks.
We are very close to i79, very easy access to our deli.
Smoking is ok. No alcohol outside.
Generators are ok. We do ask that you be inside by 9.
Please be neat. There are trash cans for what you use while on site.
All paved roads. 2.5 miles from highway.
Plenty of room for tow vehicles.
We are pretty open with availability. If we know of something going on that may cause a conflict, we will work with you and can probably still find you a spot for the night!
Pittsburgh is close by, 20 minutes.
Meadowcroft rock shelter is super cool. Check it out online, about 30 mins away.
We have a great mechanic close by (less than a mile) that works on our RV.
The Lion's Den owners are great hosts, making sure that our stay was perfect. Thank you!
First time using boondockers welcome and this was a great first experience. Awesome hosts we enjoyed meeting and chatting with. We wanted something close to Pittsburgh and this at about 15-20 minutes away, was perfect. The full hook ups was an added bonus that we were so appreciative of being able to use. We stayed until Thanksgiving Day and had a chance to devour lionsden’s apple pie,which was icing on the cake, or should I say pie?
We got there late because we were stuck in snow. We were fortunate to meet and spend a little time with our hosts. Great people
Lionsden was concerned that this site would be a little noisy, but it was wonderful, even if busy. We wish the Lionsden all the best in their boondocking and camping.
I stayed a few days while visiting Pittsburgh. I could not have had a better experience w/new friends. I had access to created comforts that rivaled RV parks. I recommend the sausage breakfast burrito if u have the opportunity to enjoy the Cafe.
The space is great! Ample room for my travel trailer and Highlander. The breakfast wraps @ their restaurant r incredible. I highly recommend staying here if u r in the Pittsburgh area.
I didn’t realize how wonderful southwestern PA is until I stayed @ Lion’s Den. Excellent location! Felt very safe & welcome. Great hosts!
My 1st experience w/Boondockers Welcome. I couldn’t have been more fortunate to stay @ Lionsden. Easy to park. Felt very safe & secure. Hosts were super nice! The breakfast wrap @ their restaurant is worth the stop if that’s all u do.
Really nice family. When we got there they met us and made sure we got settled in. This was our first boondocking experience and they made it a great experience. It was a quick stay but a good one. There was some traffic notice but we still got a good night's sleep. Thanks again! Good luck with your future ventures 🙂
Loved our stay at the Loin's Den. They were so friendly, gracious and generous. We enjoyed a great breakfast of potatoes, sausage and eggs. Their girls are precious. The spot is safe and quiet at night. Also, for golfers, they are 3 miles from Top Golf!! It is a beautiful area.
The Lionsden was a great Boondockers Welcome stop for us on our road trip. Easy pull through spot, water, electric, and dumping hookups, and best of all a great family! Make sure to try a hoagie from the restaurant - it was delicious! The Lionsden went out of their way to accommodate us, they even called a local mechanic for a car issue we were having. Easy drive into downtown Pittsburgh - would stay again next time we cross through the area. Thank you Lionsden for a great stay!
This was out first a Boondockers experience as a guest, and the bar was set very high by these folks! Great conversation, great location, utilities available, and a ton of great things to do in the area. Can’t thank you guys enough for the hospitality, and accommodations. If we can return the favor, we are happy to do so at out boondockers location. 😁 Happy motoring, and looking forward to supporting your restaurant once COVID has passed by!
Rhrapczak were excellent hosts and great people to get to know!
They spot and amenities were awesome and they helped us out with logistics to our visit to Pittsburgh.
DEFINITELY recommend staying here if you are in the area!!!!
What a great time. The most welcoming, inviting and caring hosts there ever could be.
I was sent a confirmation almost immediately, and then had a couple of follow up emails that were right on target, even to the point of suggesting places to visit on my stay at other places nearby. When I arrived I was greeted with a cold refreshing beer, and then they went wayyyy over and above making sure I had a good time in the Pittsburgh area. I can't thank them enough for everything they offered. I certainly hope to run into them again sometime.
Thanks so much.
Visit them at the deli and cafe.
We were so pleased that Lions Den said yes to our visit in these trying times. It was a perfect stay for us and was only 2 miles from the interstate. He answered us within minutes every time we texted and even came back at night when we tripped the breaker! Plus he delivered a very welcome delicious meal with wine ! This is a commercial area but he was so friendly and helpful we will certainly come back..
