Timothy Lake Campground South - Thousand Trails, East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $80.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here for three nights in our camper and I was surprised to see how pricey this campground is compared to some similar campgrounds in the area. It cost us about $80 a night plus another $7 per night for cable tv and wifi. Other campgrounds in the area charge about $50 to 60 a night. If you want wood for a campfire, its $7.50 for a small bundle as compared to about $6.00 for nearby campgrounds. I have nothing against $87 a night for a campground and have paid that rate in the past, but there is nothing special in this campground that justifies it. The few positives that I have about it are that the roads are wide and paved, all hookups are full hookups and the staff is friendly. The negatives are: -If you are not a "Thousand Trails" member, you cannot reserve a space ahead of time. When you check in, you are given a list of open spaces and have to drive around to find the best space. It was comical seeing people drive around repeatedly, trying to find spaces. -The spaces are close together. Looking down the road, I thought I was looking at an RV dealer's lot, because of how close people were together. Besides a pool, there were not that many other amenities. I was also disappointed that our site was not clean. The fire pit has the remains of a previous fire in it and the grill still had someone else's coals in it. (Don't worry, even though I didn't use either one, I cleaned them before I left). We camped at Timothy Lake Campground South - Thousand Trails in a Travel Trailer.

Otter Lake Camp Resort, East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $52.00
Overall Rating:      

Here is what I liked: The campground is for the most part clean. The bathrooms were okay. There are a lot of activities. The campers on sites are well maintained. The spots are generally level. There was an issue at checkin, and thus the low rating. The person who was checking us in (a middle aged balding man), was dismissive and condescending. I can understand that it's a Friday night and I am sure you would rather be doing something than working in a campground, but don't take it out on me. In 10 years of camping, it was was about the worst experience we have had checking into a campground. It did not leave me with a favorable impression of the campground. We camped at Otter Lake Camp Resort in a Travel Trailer.

The Great Divide Campground (formerly Green Valley Beach Campground), Newton, New Jersey

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $50.00
Overall Rating:      

We chose this for our maiden voyage of our camper. This may be the best campground in New Jersey. The staff is very helpful and polite. Our site in the H loop was tough to get into due to it being on a downhill slope. We couldn't reach our site's electric panel, so we called up the office and they brought over an extension cord. You get the impression that they really care about their guests. The sites are clean and well maintained. It was quiet. There is a lot to do at the campground. The weekend that we were there, they had a Alice in Wonderland theme. One thing I liked were free kayak rentals. I had never kayaked before and this was a great way to try it. The pool was clean and a lifeguard was on duty. The restrooms were clean. The reason that I didn't give it a 10 is that the interior roads are narrow. It was a challenge moving around, even towing a small 17 foot camper. In spite of that, will be back. We camped at The Great Divide Campground (formerly Green Valley Beach Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

Kymer's Camping Resort, Branchville, New Jersey

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $50.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here for two nights. The staff was very friendly. The park is heavily wooded and the campground is quiet. The bathrooms were clean. We didn't use the showers. Our site was clean and wide. The pool was clean. The game room consisted of 4 arcade games. There are a lot of rental trailers and cabins. We walked around the park and saw a park model camper that had obviously not been used for years. There were branches on it and it looked bad. That's not what I expect in a resort. Will we return, probably not. We camped at Kymer's Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Cape May KOA (formerly Lake Laurie Campground), Cape May, New Jersey

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $60.00
Overall Rating:      

My wife and I stayed at the Lake Laurie, Cape May in a travel trailer. We were very disappointed. This is one of the worst campgrounds we have ever been to. We stayed in a new section that was clean and level. The bathrooms in the campground were clogged and dirty and no attempt was made to correct the issue. We walked into the office one evening and the manager was dealing with someone who was complaining about the bathrooms issues and since the office was closing soon, he could not fix it. He stated they would be cleaned the next day. The following day, after we shut down and drained out our toilet in our rig, we wanted to go the bathroom one last time before heading on a nearly 200 mile trip home. The bathrooms were still clogged. This was disgusting. The pool is small. We took a walk around the campground and there were tent sites that had garbage in them, (one had a rug that someone had used as a pad). Its June and a lot of sites still had leaves on them from last fall. There were areas in the park where there was standing water; perfect for mosquito breeding and is a health hazard. There were also no garbage bins or recycling bins in the campground. We wound up taking our garbage and recycling home with us. There was nowhere to park your rig when you check in. We wound up pulling off the side of the road next to the office and blocking some parked cars, but that was the only place where we could park. The WiFi was almost nonexistent. I walked almost directly under one of the WiFi hot spots and still had issues getting a signal. We will not be back. We camped at Cape May KOA (formerly Lake Laurie Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

New York City North / Newburgh KOA, Plattekill, New York

Date of Stay: July, 2013 - $62.00
Overall Rating:      

Pluses: The campground is very clean. There are a lot of activities for the children. Free pancake breakfast in the morning. Negatives: The campground was experiencing problems with their electrical system, where sections of the campground had no electricity. Someone in our group complained to the office about that at 8pm at night and was told that they could not fix it until the next morning. It was a very hot night; he had young children and wanted to run his camper’s air conditioner, but could not because of this issue. This is unacceptable. While the spaces are private, they are tough to get into. I saw several people who had difficulty pulling their campers into spaces. The camper next to me had issues, and I spoke to him and he said that he was a commercial truck driver, and this was tough for him. The campground calls itself KOA NYC North. This is misleading. It's 75 miles north of Times Square, and without traffic, which is rare, (we even hit traffic coming home in the middle of a Sunday afternoon), it takes about an hour and 45 minutes each way. If you are planning on using this campground as a base for exploring NYC, you will be doing a lot of driving. There are two 60x120 foot swimming pools in the campground that are next to each other. There is no lifeguard on duty; however, there needs to be some type of supervision. We saw a man throwing a toddler into the air and letting the toddler land in the water. This toddler could have easily have landed the wrong way and been hurt. Kids were randomly jumping into the pool, not even caring that there were people below them that they could have landed on. Other people were diving and doing back flips into 4 foot deep water. My feeling that is within the next 5 years, someone will get seriously hurt here. The campground has a serious problem with mosquitos. I do a lot of camping, and it’s been at least twenty years since I came back from a camping trip this bitten. We even had to go out to the store to get additional citronella candles. This took away a lot of the fun from the trip. I saw KOA employees driving around in golf carts all day. How they were not aware of this infestation, I don’t know. This is a serious public health issue that the management of this campground needs to address. The campground has a problem with poison ivy around the edges of the spots. We were having a campfire at night and one of my friends warned me that I should watch where I sat in case I got too close to the poison ivy. Again, this is something that the campground's management needs to address. How difficult is it to go to Home Depot and get some weed killer? The campground is pricey. It was $65 per night, including a $5 “resort fee”. With all these negatives, I cannot recommend this campground. We camped at New York City North / Newburgh KOA in a Tent Trailer.

This is an average campground. The pluses are that the spaces are wide and easily accessible. The spots are grassy and clean. The quiet hours are enforced. The negatives are that the restrooms are filthy, there is no Wi-Fi or cable. We camped at Knoebels Lake Glory Campground in a Tent Trailer.

Seashore Campsites, Cape May, New Jersey

Date of Stay: June, 2011 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

I want to start off by saying this is the cleanest campground I have ever seen. Their camp store is also the best that I have ever seen in a campground. It puts most convenience stores to shame. The prices are also reasonable and the owners should rightly be proud of this. The spots also were immaculate. They were clean, there was no brush in the spots (for those spots who had dirt) and the fire rings were clean. Now for the bad. Since we camped in a pop up and the park was not full, we got a space by the seasonal part of the campground. This area was wooded and had space between the spots. Overall it was a great location, except for the noise. There were people behind us who spoke very loud, and did not shut up. They had no respect for the quiet hours at all. This noise started at 7:15 am and did not stop until after 11:30. The second night we were there, we called security and they came and the noise stopped for 5 minutes. The noise started again and we had to call security to again to get them to shut up. I have never seen this before in a campground. Another concern that I have about this campground is the closeness of the spaces that were assigned to the class A, B and C units. The spaces were paved and slightly bigger than a driveway. There were units with slideouts and I don't think that they were able to use the slideouts. That section of the park had all the charm of a Wal-Mart parking lot. Would we stay here again, probably not. We camped at Seashore Campsites in a Tent Trailer.
