We have a 40 foot coach. This park is rated as "big rig friendly," and when we called to see if they had space for a 40 foot rig, they said yes. Technically this is true, I suppose. Our site was plenty long enough to park both the rig and toad. But getting to the site, and into the site was a nightmare. The roads are narrow, rutted, bumpy, and edged by trees (think forest) and rocks. We had to back and fill to get into the site, and got hung up on a rock trying to get in. I told them at the office about this, and a very nice lady there did apologize, but then told me, "other people have done it." Yes, and we did it too, but never again. - ZoAnn

The speed bumps at the campground will knock the fillings out of your teeth! Never mind what they do to your RV. Actually, if you want to see how secure your interior setup is or clean the grunge out of your blackwater tank, this is an EXCELLENT place to go.
We went at the beginning of camping season. Our site had a fire ring, picnic table, but there's no Wi-Fi.
There were only 2 sites open. Both back-in and these were all -gravel with no separation at all from adjacent sites.
The water spigot at our site was broken. We didn't want to bother the staff who had stayed late to check us in so we opted for no water hookup the first night.
We had an issue the next morning with rust in the drinking water that would not clear up after 20 minutes of running the water from the spigot.
A lot of full-timers live here but they were mostly very nice to us. Well... except for the guy who saw us trying to back into the first site next to his and cursed. We couldn't figure out how to get in there anyway so we took the other site.
We'd like to go back mid-season and give them another chance. - kalm_in_nj

Staff friendly and check-in efficient. Our site was located on the top of the hill at the backside of the campground. The roads were really narrow, rutty with speed bumps every 10' that were in need of repair or just needed removing. The sites are really large and the entire campground in wooded. Seems most sites are permanent and since we were there during the week, not many campers near us….in fact, none. Very secluded and quiet. Did not see many people except the occasional walkers going by. Except for the mama bear and 3 cubs visiting within 50' of our campsite….extra treat. Was surprised that the possible visitation of bears was not mentioned. The camp store is adequate but small. Grocery stores at least 15 miles away. - carol d

This campground is a full nature park! Very primitive sites, but spacious! Hiking was plentiful and other campers very friendly. - jugs6686

I have been camping at this forest, mostly with groups, since the 1950s. It remains quite rustic with no RV facilities. Sites are located in two separate areas. There is one area by a pond that is on grass and will permit you to pull through. Roads can be narrow and you should discuss the area with the ranger before picking a site. Wooden cabins are also available. The park contains a beautiful lake with wonderful swimming, and is next to an excellent athletic field/playground -- a major attraction. While water supplies are not at the campsites, there is a spring fed pump that gives you some of the finest water in NJ. People come to the park in off hours to fill their bottles. The park is open year round, but don't expect immediate help if you are trapped there in a snowstorm. There is a nearby RV dealer, Escape RV, which offers excellent parts and service. Also nearby is Jumbo's, a super restaurant for comfort food and ice cream. - rvwanderer

Only campground we've seen that charges per person ($15). Great price for 2 persons, not so much for a family of five or more. Campground gave us a great site by the pond. Staff was very friendly. Our site was electric (30 amp) and water only. Electric outlet was worn giving a loose connection. Owner said my plug was the problem but I've used it since in other campgrounds without a problem. Sewer dump is in front of office and can be difficult to access if vehicles are in the way. We were in the area visiting relatives and would stay here again. - halfdimes

Evaluating this park is tough because everything was frozen. The host did talk us through getting lost on the way to it and got us "unstuck" to get out of the park the next morning. For friendlineess/helpfulness they definitely get an A++ for 2 tired travelers looking for a place to land in a season of ice and for that we are very thankful. - ralinda

The previous campers who had bathrooms in their trailers were probably unaware about the bathrooms. My husband saw human waste on the walls; the woman's bathroom had an over flowing toilette with brown water running from the toilette to the drain in the floor. It smelled like backed up sewer. The drywall was also just set up against the wall. It was slum for camping. The 2 big dumpsters for garbage was over-flowing. Bags of garbage ended up on the ground, which camper's dogs were eating and no one seemed to care. It looks like they are putting up a play structure from a McDonalds that wasn't finished, so it had orange tape around it. The pond was all brown and disgusting. The second bathrooms had the doors open so bird droppings were all over the stalls. The birds use it as a bird house: it was so gross. It just looks like they have too many projects going on at the same time, that aren't getting finished. They have a nice pool, a great baseball field with an electric score board and a roller hockey/ ice hockey arena. To me it seemed like one of the owners is into baseball and hockey, and the campground pays for it. If they knocked the bathrooms down and build new ones, and kept up: then this place could be a gem. The sites were big, but on the downside you had to share an electrical hook-up, so make sure you have at least a 50 foot electrical cord. It's so shady that there is lots of (moss) on the trees, that gets onto the camper and/or tent. The Wi-Fi didn't didn't work, which makes me wonder if they really have any. We were packed up by 8:00am and ready to leave, but since we got here at 6:00 on a weekday they had already left, so we were suppose to wait to check-in and out in the morning. They were suppose to open at 9:00 am but we left at 9:00 and no one was even here yet. We would never return and I would warn all others not to go. I hate to say that since this is someone's business, but I wished someone else would have warned us. - Chatterbox

This campground is one of the few available in the Delaware Water Gap, perhaps the only that will accommodate campers. The park is simply "ok" - it will not "wow you" for sure. Meanwhile the location is perfect for exploring the region. I believe the campground has a lot of potential. Yet it doesn't seem to be promoted very much... There are recent reports of a new shower and bath house having been approved for construction. That's great news. Generally speaking the entire place could use an update. The best sites for camping are tent sites only located right up against the river. Camper sites with power and water are located closer to the entrance. The sites are decent size. The staff was friendly... the water pressure was low... The canoe service was not operating yet in April despite the great wether. - Jim and Ben

Over all this is a good campground if you are interested in spending time in the Delaware Gap rec area. Even though it is a concessionaire CG they honor the America the Beautiful pass which is reflected in our rate. This is a very wooded site. Internet service required using our antenna. Only tent camping is on the river. Now for the not so good. The restrooms are old and need a major cleaning & paint job. The roads are very narrow with lots of trees. The power boxes are so far forward the we had to use 30amps because our 50amp cord could not reach. It is very busy on the weekends but during the week it was almost empty. We would stay here again if in the area - Nana25K

This site is in the middle of the Delaware Water Gap National Recreational Area. The campground is well shaded and the sites and roads are gravel and dirt. This sites look pretty level and we had no problem leveling up with the system in our MH. We had a 50 amp site and the power was clean. The bathrooms and showers were clean but the hot water was pretty much an illusion. The best you can hope for is a degree or two above body temp. We paid $18.50 a night with the old peoples federal discount. The going rate is $37/night. Way too high for what you get. Verizon phone and Wi-Fi worked but the Wi-Fi was pretty slow. I down graded this campground to a 5 due to the lack of hot water. It's convenient to a lot of nice water fall hikes. - pumper9x9

Super nice place: very clean, and well laid-out. The only complaint is the office hours are not very reliable. They close from 5-7pm and again at 10 pm each night: which is inconvenient. So I went down at 4:45 pm: they were already closed. We went for firewood at 9:30 pm: again they were already closed. Other than that, a great park! - ST59

We chose this campground because it was close and offered a lot of amenities for kids. Best part? The very large playground - the kids had a BLAST. The mini golf course was cheesy to us adults but the kids thought it was great. The kids never got to use the beautiful pool because a large group of adults took over the whole pool area for water football. Bathrooms were yucky but luckily we had a camper! Walking trails were overgrown and not maintained. - Its Me

Nice location - rural. Bathrooms weren't very clean. The sites were not very level. There were many campers with a lot of junk all over their site. The entrance looks like it will be wonderful, but the sites and the junk take away from that perception. - bonniejames

Both the positive and negative reviews are correct in some ways. This campground is by a farm and has fishing ponds, small animals like small horses and goats, a nice pool, playground and dog park. The store is small but also sells ice cream and light food. Access is through High Point Park, a good climb off the interstate. The campground has many long-termers and is much like summer camp. The overnight sites are gravel and weeds and close to level. People are very friendly here and there are summer activities....tonight is a square dance. Its not like anywhere else we've stayed. It is in the country, activity (and not tourist attraction) oriented, quiet and spacious. It could be great, but I doubt it is worth the investment of improving the roads/sites to make it so. There are no real over the air TV stations available other than religious shows. We could not get any major network. We'd come back.. Why not, I loved summer camp as a kid. - Solem8s

Under no circumstances should you come to this campground for an overnighter. It is almost 10 miles off the highway down a small windy road. After paying $58 we were sent to the back of the park where there are a few pull-through sites, which are unpaved and even unmowed...a mess. We were surrounded by unoccupied park models and had no view. Fire pits in our section were full of trash. I didn't feel like digging through the plastic bags, etc. to get it ready for a fire. What a waste of money. We will never be back. - RVerMJ

Yes, I have to agree with other reviews, the views are amazing. However, this park is set up totally for seasonals, which isn't a bad thing it just doesn't cater to the one nighter. They to have some pull through sites and while they are plenty big they are very unlevel with very pronounced depressions next to the sewer inlet. We came here mostly because of the reviews, but I won't bother about coming back. It is a little out of the way and the entrance road is rather steep. I cannot in good conscious recommend this park to other than seasonals. - Jack&Wanda

To say it was a Hooverville would be polite. Filthiest restrooms I've ever seen in a campground. I asked the person who checked us in where would be the best place to view the Delaware Water Gap. Her reply, "I don't know; I just work here." There's cable TV, but you need to call cable company days in advance to set up. I was only there 1 night and that was too long. Avoid this place if you can. - NJMom

This park is good for an overnight stay, if you are planning to visit Milford or Port Jervis, or if you want to recreate on the river. The spaces are tightly packed and the place is very busy. It was a bit tight getting into my spot as they had cones to block off an area that I needed to swing around to get in--and I am just 24 ft. The other spots look easy enough to get into. The site was not level but not too bad. My Verizon worked well. - nanzhere

Did not have high expectations for this park and I was right. We chose it for an overnight because of advertised wifi and cable TV. There was NO wifi at our rig... about 150 ft. from the office. "Connected but NO INTERNET" was the message we received on two devices and on the office porch as well. What is also not mentioned is that there is not much phone service here either so you can't use your data plan.
OK...so we'll just watch the cable news on TV and go to bed. NOPE. Not a single cable news channel in the bunch they offer. Also all are digital channels so if you have an older rig...you won't be getting any...the nice lady at the front desk warned us about this...but she was surprised there was no CNN, MSNBC, HLN, FoxNews or Bloomberg.
It was pouring rain when we got there...site was a nice pull through in a wooded section... but it was a mix of mud and gravel. 30 amp service ONLY available and no FHU. Won't be back. - Camaraderie

Its just a parking lot for overnighters. We walked back into the true camping area and there were plenty of folks there, but it appears crowded also. The staff was great. The first site they gave us wasn't big enough and thankfully they were able to relocate us into a better spot. Definitely had to unhook to get into it. Lots of people and cars on the weekend because of the river activities. We were afraid we'd be blocked in so we left really early in the morning. Its about the only game in town so its ok for an overnight stay if needed. - Lucky Lady from Florida

Stopped in at Rockview Valley overnight on our way to another destination. We arrived around 9pm and were greeted within minutes at the front desk by friendly staff. They did not charge us for our 2 young children due to only staying overnight. They put us in their rally field that had water and electric hookup conveniently placed around the whole field. The field was well maintained with low cut grass, a pavilion, and picnic tables throughout. Upon pulling in a number of campers and staff were very helpful in asking if we needed assistance in setting up. The campground was very quiet and people were very friendly. Although our stay was short I would highly recommend them, and we plan on staying there next season due to their friendly atmosphere and neatly kept park. They do not accept credit cards however, they do take checks. - Jlrineer

Nice little campground for us as an overnight stop while traveling I-84 westbound. We were given a site in the "rally" area which was spacious and quiet. My only concern was that we have a 40' motor home and the entryway to the campground is extremely tight with low hanging branches. Once inside it is also very tight by the office for a turn to the area we were in with more low hanging tree branches. Also, if you are coming from I-84 and choose to go to this campground there is a approximately 135 degree left turn required onto River Road which was at the limit of our turning ability. Owner's son was friendly and helpful. Cable TV included in price. We would return if in the area if we were in a smaller rig, but don't think we would in our current rig. - Bob & Stephanie

I am usually flexible when it comes to different campgrounds. Some great, some not but I usually try to adjust. I have to say that this time I just couldn't get past that unsettled feeling. It was quite empty of any regular campers other then seasonals. I understand October does get slow once the weather gets chillier and the kids in school. It was just unsettling as I found the place rather 'sloppy' for a campground. Sites were lacking numbers and I had trouble finding the water spigot to attach to the camper for it only to be a hose not attached to anything on the ground under the dried leaves and brush. I think it may have been originally screwed onto a board as the other sites had but didn't see anything around. Took a walk as I usually do once we get settled to see 5 empty beer cans and 1 bottle thrown off to the side in different areas. The young girl at the office was very friendly but found everyone else not. None said hello, waved or even gave eye contact of any sort. Did not have a fire ring or picnic table at the site even though we didn't plan on using one because we were leaving in the morning. The campground looked like it would have great potential and maybe its better at the height of the season but I have to say that.I wasn't feeling very comfortable here. They also just accept cash. No credit cards. I wish I have been told that upon making reservations, but I was not. I feel bad giving such a poor review. Wish I could of truthfully done better. - MoeLily

Convenient off of I-84. Staff friendly and helpful. Park is severely over crowded with long term units. They are crammed in as tight as possible. Roads and sites are gravel. Some smooth and some in disrepair. The bathrooms and showers are clean but quite worn. We will avoid this park in the future. - atwig

Arrived without reservation and park was full. Owner chose to do something she had never done and put us on Delaware River frontage boondocking site for no charge. How can an owner be anymore kind and helpful. Visited with owner and learned they are in process of upgrading sites, adding few more sites and improving overall appearance. From my boondocking site I could see the marker where PA, NJ and NY meet. Wonderful site and enjoyed watching two Otters play and kayakers paddling down river. Pull through sites and roads are okay for Big Rigs. Husband & Wife owners along with son and staff were very friendly and helpful. Son explained the history of site back to the 1700 hundreds. I look forward to staying here again. - osok

Way over priced for a gravel parking lot. Road into park in awful shape. Cable TV had very little to offer. 50 amp was fine.
BUT my husband had seen on the good Sam website they offered a military discount. Turned out the discount was for $1. Kind of a slap in the face. - JohnCarolP
