Ponderosa Pines Campgrounds, Honesdale, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: August, 2009 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

This is our favorite campground in Pennsylvania. The owners make the effort to maintain the facilities to a high standard. The pool is one of the cleanest pools that I have ever seen. The owner spends almost an hour every morning cleaning the pool. The Lake front sites are to die for. The other sites are mostly pretty roomy. The staff goes the extra mile to make your stay enjoyable. For instance the owner's son saw me walking to the dumpster and he stopped and offered to take my trash to the dumpster. The campground sits at a high elevation and is quite cool. We have run the heat in August during the night. We have never had a problem with the electricity even with the air on. I have seen people have trouble trying to use 50 amp adapters on the 30 amp hook ups. The best seasonals are the friendliest group i have run into. I am normally turned off by parks that have a lot of seasonals. This place is the exception. The owner seems to not have a problem with kicking out problem campers. This is important in a campground with a lot of seasonal sites. It is a long drive into town (about 25 minutes). This is either an asset or a liability depending on your needs and attitude. We camped at Ponderosa Pines Campgrounds in a Travel Trailer.

Ponderosa Pines Campgrounds, Honesdale, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: June, 2007 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

This is by far the nicest campground that we have visited. The management and the seasonal campers went out of their way to make us feel welcome. It is very nice and quiet and the fishing is superb. The pool is among the nicest that I have seen. The only bit of caution that I have is that the cell service is very spotted. There is absolutely no road noise except for a few ATVS int he distance. We reserved for another weekend later in the summer. My Favorite campground in PA! We camped at Ponderosa Pines Campgrounds in a Travel Trailer.

Bellefonte / State College KOA, Bellefonte, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: May, 2007 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

We like this park for its convenience to State College and the area trout fishing. We have stayed when it was over run with kids and when it is empty. The staff seem courteous. I do not care for their waterless urinals as they cause the bathrooms to stink. I noticed this both times we stayed there. The wifi is adequate when the park is not busy, but it seems really slow when the park is crowded. It is a tad expensive and there is a fair amount of distant road noise as Rte 80 is across the valley. I am sure it is a mad house on football weekends and at the Arts Fest. We camped at Bellefonte / State College KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Guestward Ho, Deposit, New York

Date of Stay: May, 2007 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

This was the rowdiest campground that we have ever visited. We were in the area to fish the West Branch of the Delaware River and the fishing was great. The seasonals we so rowdy that we will never return. Their web site says that they have cable, but it was not available when we set up. Our site was so out of level that the owner had to supply a bunch of lumber and concrete blocks. The only reason that the place did not get a score of 1 is that the owners seemed to want to make us feel welcome. We were camped next to the pavilion and they had a dance/karaoke party that continued past midnight. The music was so loud that our windows were rattling. The next night a group of teens spent 2 hours swearing at each other and using racial slurs near the swings next to our site. Another boy almost crashed his bike into our campfire wile riding through our site at a high rate of speed. I have camped all over the continent and have never been as dissatisfied. The owners better crack down on the seasonals or they will have legal trouble at some point. We camped at Guestward Ho in a Travel Trailer.
