Very good shade, pull-through (Loop D) was fine for my 30' motorhome; however, I saw the longer RVs struggling with the tight spaces between trees. Other loops (A-C) were more accommodating for the longer RVs; however, the electrical and water services were installed so that adjoining spaces shared a common water facet and the electric boxes were back to back. Swimming is not allowed in the pond; however, can boat and kayak. The conditions for bicycling were excellent within the park and the surrounding state and county roads (wide shoulders both directions). Bathrooms need updating. Laundry was $1.50 per load for each of the washers and dryers. We camped at Trap Pond State Park in a Motorhome.

Nice state park. Our site was fairly level and was a pull through with excellent W/E service. GPS directions on our Rand were a little sketchy both going and coming. Staff was friendly and helpful. We camped at Trap Pond State Park in a Motorhome.

Good services, nicely laid out park. Loop D is the only loop allowing pull-throughs, but it doesn't have it's own shower house as the others do. Would stay again. Price reflects 10% Golden Age Pass Discount. We camped at Trap Pond State Park in a Truck Camper.

Stayed here over Labor Day weekend and every site in the entire park was reserved. Water pressure was amazing, although the water had a bad taste to it and was kind of cloudy looking. 50 AMP power was fine and the bath house, although dated, was always being cleaned. It rained a lot over the weekend and lots of sand was tracked into the bath houses. The pond was very low on water but was still able to go out in a boat. You have to check each site to see if you will fit, cause some of them have trees all over. No sewer sites at all, but 2 dump stations at the exit. We camped at Trap Pond State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

A very woodsie campground and well maintained. Sites are close together and on the small size but fine on the weekdays. Weekends are a bit noisy. Would stay here again. We camped at Trap Pond State Park in a Motorhome.

This was our second stay at Trap Pond. Stayed on B Loop, but would prefer to stay on D Loop. Our site had trees that prevented us from fully extending our awning. Bathrooms always clean. Park is very safe. Lots to do, but we prefer to do a whole lot of nothing when we camp. Full hookups would be nice, but definitely worth settling for W/E. Easter is a fun time to stay here as well as Halloween, but good luck getting in on Halloween weekend. Reservations need to be made in March. We camped at Trap Pond State Park in a Motorhome.

I try to camp here often because of the friendly staff and the activities here. The park is always super clean and security is great. We camped at Trap Pond State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This was a great experience for overnight on our trip. Easy access to the park but if you are using trip routing software, use Highway 24, not Highway 30. Some of the turns inside the park looked tight for my 38 foot fiver, but I had no problems navigating around the various loops looking for a site. My only gripe is the reservation system. When we checked in with no reservations, we were told to pick a site without a yellow reservations tab on the post and come back to the office and let them know which site we selected. We were forced to bypass several "reserved" sites that would have been easy to get into, finally ending up in one that required backing to within 3 inches of a fallen tree stump with 3 inches clearance on each side for the slides. Most of the "reserved" sites were still empty the following morning. We had good local television, 3G data and cell phone service here. The sites are not cramped, but the trees make parking interesting. We camped at Trap Pond State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

$28 for an out of state camper depending if you get the senior or golden age discount. This campground is in the pines with over 142 sites on the north shore of Trap Pond. The whole park is huge with public areas for group and family get together, volleyball courts, hiking, biking, boating and places for just sitting and enjoying the water fall and geese. There are cabins and yurts for rent some facing the water and a great tenting site. There are two walk in tent sites on an island for a group or family that was beautiful and so private with areas to put in a kayak or canoe. Four loops are for tent and RV camping with water and electricity under the pines. One loop D has pull through sites but all the sites are on pine needles not paved spots. We enjoy that especially with the nice smell of the pine trees. The ranger check-in cabin was a log cabin with a store in it – very cute. The rangers were very nice and helpful. We would definitely come back to camp here. We camped at Trap Pond State Park in a Motorhome.

We camp here routinely with our two boys! Where else can you camp for $24/night as an in stater? We try to stay next to the playground, pavilion and bath house. We walk less then 200 feet down a path to the vinyl dock to fish. It is very laid back, very serene and not a lot of extras. The bathrooms are older but always clean! We have never once, in over a dozen trips had any problems with staff being rude on our sites. We camped at Trap Pond State Park in a Tent Trailer.

Very nice state park campground. Only down side is the pull-thrus. Unless you really no how to manuever large trees and tight spots, request a back-in. Very nice bike trail and many other great state park type activities. We camped at Trap Pond State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Overpriced and very poor design in this campground. It's like the electric & water hook ups were an afterthought. In loop C the electric & water are shared with other sites. Shouldn't be a big deal but the hook ups are at the road - not in back! You MUST bring extra lengths of hose & electric cord (or make the trip to WalMart). Tough sites to back into with many, many trees left in odd places. Water in the shower was SCALDING HOT! Watch out!! Quiet hour was enforced but blaring loud music for 4 hours before quiet hour was allowed. Never know what jerk will end up next to your site! Note - we brought a dump tank and were told to dump the night before leaving. It's a good thing because with only 1 dump station it can take 2 or 3 hours waiting to dump. We camped at Trap Pond State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Very good state park COG. I was there 3 nights during the week and practically had the place to myself. I was in loop D, which their online reservation site said has pull throughs. Yes, but not for big rigs. You can pull through, but even with my rig, at a shade less than 29' counting hitch and spare tire hanging off the back, I had to back up to get it where I wanted to, on my site. Once there, I had a great site #2, with no one closer than about 10 sites away! I'd give it a 10 if it were about $5 cheaper. This close to $30 is on the high side for a state park.

My family and I had a fantastic time at Trap Pond. The park was quiet and well maintained- the prices were great - considering it is a state park with hook ups. Do not come to the park looking for a commercial setup - just the basics. There is a really nice lake that for a small fee you can rent a kayak, canoe, or take the pontoon boat ride (we did). I would strongly recommend this park for a family that just wants to relax. We camped at Trap Pond State Park in a Travel Trailer.
