The campground was clean and the staff friendly. They had great activities for kids, made me wish I had brought my nephews. The sites were clean and level and the bathrooms were spotless. There are tons of things to do nearby since they are close to Atlantic City. We didn't spend all that much time in the campground but we did enjoy our stay.

We had a wonderful time at Camp Taylor! The facility is beautiful, way up in the mountains by the Delaware Gap. One thing to remember though, if you go, make sure you get directions from their website and not from Mapquest or a GPS. There is a really *really* steep hill on the route our GPS sent us, and we only barely managed to get our trailer up. The folks at the office explained and gave us the alternate route which is a tad further but much easier on the tow vehicle! The restrooms and showers were very clean and the park itself was really quiet and serene. The staff was polite and friendly and was happy to advise us about local fishing areas and hiking trails. My husband was a little disappointed that there was no fishing on site, but they had a map in the office with places to fish nearby (the closest being at the bottom of that so-steep hill). The staff did warn us about bears, but we followed their trash and recycling policies and didn't see any. Too bad. The lake was beautiful and very clear but of course, too cold to swim in in April. Our site was very quiet and secluded in the section across the street from the office. Make sure you sign up to take the tour of the Wolf Preserve! It was definitely worth the $10 and it was amazing to hear wolves howl while sitting around the fire at night. We really had a lovely time and hope to return with friends later in the season.

This campground isn't really much in the way of a campground, but for visiting NYC it was great. We had friends coming up from TX and wanted to show them the city. The camp itself is just a paved section right next to a marina with very few amenities or comforts, but we weren't really there to camp. It is right by the Liberty State Park and near a train station that is only $2 to get into Manhattan. It was definitely worth the rather steep over night fee to not have to rent a hotel room near New York. I felt the area was pretty safe too. We spent most of our time seeing the sights and very little time actually in the campground but that is what we expected.
