19 Parks near Clinton, New Jersey
Sep 2015 - $32.00
We called the ranger from the Interstate and were able to get space for our larger rig near the end of the day. We were warned that we would just be in a parking lot, basically. there is no potable water in the park, no hookups, just parked between lines, for space 1, in the parking lot, which we found unusual. The park was quiet at night, also we noticed the lake, which was hard to see from our location, was down in water level as well.
we used the dump station on the way out in the morning. Also, roads to the park are paved but fairly uneven asphalt. Don't go into the area needing fuel, as there are only two choices, and the main road has a huge concrete New Jersey barrier running up and down the highway, which necessitates doing huge and dangerous U-turns with a rig. We finally had to unhook, just to get into a place. We wouldn't go back to the park again, unless a real emergency for a place to stay. We listed the site satisfactory only because we have no problem dry camping and with the threat of rain, we thought it would be ok to park on pavement. - elduque

Stayed before the weekend, reservation website will show available sites but must reserve at least two nights in order to book plus Reserve America reservation fee. Weekend most sites were reserved, mixture of grass field and reservoir/lakeside sites. Main roads are paved, roads in campground are gravelly as are the campground parking sites. Sandy beach is a distance walk from campground which make the sites more private. Bathhouses are older and have individual toilet and separate shower units. Most sites are level and well spaced, low hanging tree branches make some campsite roads difficult to maneuver with bigger rigs. No hook-ups but good dump station and water connection by campground entrance. - travelin' guy

A beautiful park on the Spruce Run Reservoir. The condition of the restrooms were the main reason I could not rate the park as a 10. The facilities are quite worn and, although they were cleaned daily, weekend use was overwhelming and by Saturday night things were pretty grungy. There were 5 stalls and 3 showers (one of each wheelchair accessible)in each of the two bathroom buildings, but one of the buildings had only one shower in use, and one of the men's showers ran cold water only. Weekdays the campground was almost empty. It is primarily a popular weekend place for extended families who are tent-camping; definitely great for kids with the lake, a beach, boat rentals and playgrounds. Our spot was tight for a 32' Fifth-wheel due to overhanging trees. (There is lots of space between sites.)If you have a rig this large the following sites will accommodate you: 7, 8, 9, 16, 17, 21, 24, 33, 39, 61, 67, 70. Note: The park day-use area allows pets, but the campground does not. - Horizons28

This park has basically no amenities or services. The camping area was a big field with a few trees around the perimeter. There were some Porta potties across the field. Dry camping on a field costs us $30. The park ranger was rude about our camping at night after 7 pm, so we hadn't paid in advance. This left a very bad impression of their state parks. Don't recommend. - stocky

We stayed here since we could not get in to the Spruce Run Rec Area campgrounds, This site is about 10 minutes away, up on top of a hill. You must drive up some steep grades to get to the campsite. The sites are "primitive", no water, elecricity, etc. The site itself is pretty enough, with the campsites all bordering a large grassy field. Be warned, there's a fair amount of poison ivy here and there (especially around the small playground, which our 2-year-old was magnetically attracted to). The bath house was fairly disgusting; there are pit toilets and a couple of showers. Lots of paper strewn around, and very unpleasant odors (my wife had to use the men's latrine because the women's was so disgusting). A nice feature (for those so interested) is that the NJ Astronomical Assn's observatory is a short hike away; they tell me it's the largest public telescope (27") in NJ. Attended an open talk there on Sat night, but it was unfortunately too hazy to use the big telescope. Probably would not stay here again if there's space at Spruce Run. - Will Dennis

There was virtually no one else here during our visit (midweek prior to school letting out). Park is pretty and wooded, with hiking paths, playgrounds, picnic areas and even an observatory1! Staff exceedingly helpful and pleasant. We had no trouble parking our 35' Fifth Wheel, although there are probably not many sites that we could have used. We were able to set up our Internet dish, but again, few sites from which this would have been possible. Please note that pets and even possession of alcohol are prohibited by park rules. There is a dump, but I think a large rig would have trouble using it. The drive through town to get here includes a 12'6" overpass and somewhat narrow roads. (There is an alternate route around the overpass.) - User51

Based on website we originally planned to spend 2 nights here but when we pulled into parking lot with lots of equipment being worked on and a cluttered look, decided to go with 1 night and add if we enjoyed our stay. Were offered choice of 2 pull through sites. Road into camp had lots of potholes and passed by what appeared to be abused equipment & vehicles. When we arrived at site one of our choices was already occupied. Another had a narrow entry but other end was a mud bog with 6" of standing water. We were able to enter with our 42' rig but the site was not level enough to try to level our rig. Lots of permanent trailers in the park. Was told hunters use the campground in the fall. We left after one night. Navigating the trees was a challenge. Would not return. - Doc Randy

Park is located behind trailer sales lot. Convenient to Pa. locations, as well as N.J.
Sites are not level, but electric and water pressure was adequate. Large grassy area for pet's. No dumping at site, but honey wagon comes by (NO CHARGE) to empty your tanks :-)
Staff was extremely helpful and super friendly. I would stay here again. - 8345

Office and staff were dirty. Staff looked like they just worked on an engine. Roads were muddy and full of potholes. Electric didn't work on our site, had to plug into the next site (which had a faucet that would not completely shut off). Would have left, but needed the electric for medical equipment and it was getting dark. - elliesaliner

Wow! This was a refreshing twist to RV camping. Way off the beaten path we saw some amazing old houses on our way to this site. Trees and fields, plenty of space for kids to run and play, loads of wildlife including deer, beavers and chipmunks. Bathrooms were shocking clean for such a rustic location. These owners definitely aim to please. Located just outside of Easton this was a great pit stop on our way to Crayola Experience, I only wish we could have stayed longer. Millions of stars and fireflys at night.... No lights anywhere near this camp ground. If your looking to rough it with electric and water this is the place to go! Cash only. - GMC_STRIPES

Nice quiet park, even on the weekends! This park is VERY out of the way. They do not have a lot of amenities nor activities, but they are close to a lot of attractions. They do not have a pool, but do have a swimming pond. It would be nice if they added just a little bit to their playground area. If your are looking for amenities, this is not for you. If you are looking for peace and quiet, and real camping, then stay here! - grim509

This is a nice park, actually a farm/campground run by a very friendly family. We had a hard time finding it, but we came in the 'back way'. It would be easy from the direction that we exited. The shower house was dated, but clean. There were a lot of bugs, but that's because we were way back in the trees, very secluded. Overall, a nice park in an area where there aren't many. - Mo_Camper

Very clean and well maintained park. Lots of seasonals, but everyone was very friendly. Store is smaller, but stocked nicely. Pool looks brand new. Is on the smaller side, but was comfortably warm and clean. Small baby pool with a fountain also. Daily activities geared for families and kids, we did not take part in. Good place to just hang out and relax. Our site was across from the playground which had a light that was on all night. That was annoying but understandable. I would recommend a site further down from R-4 if you have a choice. - gandb26

Stayed for a month. Restrooms are clean during the week but get trashed during the weekends when the campground fills up and there is only one restroom (mens and womens has 3 toilet stalls and 2 showers each) in the whole place. Owner and staff nice. No sewer hookups, honey dipper service was weekly and additional $. Seasonal people were very nice and friendly and welcoming, they have events for kids every weekend. Pool was nice, got crowded with people and their oversized toys sometimes. No lifeguard. Cute baby pool. Wi-Fi in clubhouse worked well. Location is great and we would stay again. - sbrigga315

Good for families who want playground and pool and events; pricey and a bit too much activity for full-timers who just want a nice, quiet campsite away from it all. Approach from south, not north, as roads wind and are difficult from north. Restrooms clean enough, but dated. With lots of seasonals and local families with kids staying here, it was not one of our favorite campgrounds. That said, if you want to be in this area, which we did, this will do just fine - just expect a lot of activity in the summertime. - Jolly Out There

Nice campground, good location, nice grounds. Was crowded when I was there. Pool area looked really, really busy (did not go in). Overall, a good choice in Bucks County area. - jmelaw

Very accommodating for late arrival. Very noisy and active at 11 PM on a Saturday night - people (teens, children, adults) walking all over the park - no curfew? The site was not level, the water source is a bunch of hoses laying all around on the ground from one site to another with taps available here and there. The pool(s) were nice - large heated pool, two kiddie pools with sprinklers and water buckets; whirlpool not very warm and not very bubbly. Lots of trees and rocks. A nice covered bridge walkway from store to lakefront, then to pool area. Mini-golf course is a hazard yet they still charge for use: broken and sagging boards, rusty nails sticking out, uneven ground and play areas. Not impressed. - Forrest Woods

A heavily wooded campground about 60 miles north of Philadelphia, close to the Delaware River and other northern Bucks County attractions. Difficult to find; watch out for narrow roads - plan ahead. Arrived late on a Friday night; "David" thankfully escorted us to the site, which was wide, clean and flat with stones. Permanent sites are separated from transients. Most permanents in good shape. An active campground with organized games throughout Saturday for children and teens. Camp store is well-stocked, with an indoor game area. Large lake for fishing and two pools with water play-features. A high cost for only water and electric - knocked down my rating. Charges $7.50 per adult guest. One dumping station means you'll be lining up to get out on Sunday. Be sure to leave an extra hour. Trash is picked up on site (didn't learn that until we drove around looking for a Dumpster). There's a honeywagon too, but the service isn't available on weekends, or wasn't well advertised. We have friends in the area and will likely visit again. - Lancaster Camper

This park is mostly for seasonal campers. They do have one loop of daily sites available. The sites are mostly level, but getting into them could be quite tricky. Some are only tent friendly. The roads are narrow and not at all big rig friendly in the daily loop. They do have a nice field option that would be for great big rigs.
The bathrooms are dated and the showers were okay. The camp store is packed and the arcade will keep the little guys busy for a little while on a rainy day. The pool is this parks crown jewel. It has a couple of fantastic water slides. It is very well kept.
The Wi-Fi is only available by the office, not throughout the campground. You also need to get the password from the store. It did work, but only if there was not a lot of people using it. It would slow to a crawl. The campground has a gate so you will need to get the card at registration. A/C is a $3.oo add on. - 4njcampers

We stayed at a corner site that was level, and nice size. It had a good amount of privacy with densely wooded areas on all sides (view at back of site through sparse vegetation: well maintained seasonal site and transient tent/pop-up sites, to the left through thicker vegetation; transient site), directly in front of site playground and rally field. Site was fine stone, campground roads/walking paths rocky terrain (watch out for random ankle breaker sized rocks). Site was nicely wooded with large mature trees that offered shade throughout the day. Nice pool with clean bathrooms and hot showers just a short walk away. Good high efficiency washer and dryer. Mostly seasonals here. No Wi-Fi or Sewer, pump-out service Mondays and Fridays, $3 extra per day for air conditioner and a few extra random charges. No recycling containers-carry out cans/bottles/paper. Staff were somewhat helpful. Seasonal sites hit or miss-a lot of older/ weathered RVs.. Be sure to follow campsite directions, roads in the area are very curvy and narrow. Close drive to nice state parks. - ryjackopher

Nice, quiet, wooded campground. Sites are are little tight to get in to, but plenty of room once you're set up. The roads leading to the campground are narrow and curvy. Office people are very friendly and helpful. - bgg

This place is so pretty, wooded and green and right on the Delaware River, that we wished we could have stayed longer than the five days we did. Nice and helpful staff. The only downsides were lack of sewer hookup (typical for that area - they have a drain service) and grass-on-clay sites. After a rain, the site became so slippery that our 2WD truck got stuck and we had to be towed out. - Ray Waugh

This is only 20 minutes from our home and it has taken us 2 years to get here! I wish we had come sooner. We biked the tow path to Stockton and crossed the bridge to Dilly's Corner. What an amazing weekend skipping rocks on the Delaware and hiking & biking the beautiful area. We cannot wait to come back. We choose site 15 as other reviewers said it was spacious. We agree. It was near the bath/shower house and was close to the path to the river. We will come again. Most everyone was friendly, no rif-raf. Great family camping! Finally a place in Jersey we would venture back too. - Rkidsluvcamping

This is one of our favorite campgrounds. It sit on the Delaware river. It might be a little tight with a big trailer 40'. We had a 21' fifth wheel toy hauler and had no problems. We had site 15 which is a huge site and we parked 2 RV's on it. Site 44 is also another nice site. - Jodee

This place was excellent! Level sites, mostly quiet. Sandwiched between the DNR canal and the Delaware River. The bathrooms were very clean and the showers had loads of pressure and space. Plenty of cheap firewood for sale around the park. Frenchtown is nearby with some great shops and places to eat. We will be going back in September for another kayaking trip. - kleoette

This has been our most pleasant stay at this campground. We used to have to buy $1 tokens to get back into he campground after the office closed. Now you can get an electronic pass with just a refundable $25 deposit. Big improvement !
I also have seen improvement in the friendliness of the office staff. They are much more pleasant than they used to be. I guess all those negative comments were finally listened to.
As noticed in previous reviews, there is no on-site sewer, but they do come and pump out your tanks on Mondays and Fridays.
This is the first time we have camped here in a bigger Class A, and we could only run one AC at a time because they only have 30 Amp. Wiring at least some sites with 50A would be a really nice thing for those of us with bigger rigs. It didn't help that we stayed here during record-breaking heat !
DRFCG is really two different campgrounds. From Sunday night until Friday afternoon, it is pretty quiet here with a lot of empty site. The weekends are rowdy, with a lot of tent campers, but security is pretty much on the ball and quiets down those who get too rowdy.
WI-FI is pretty much restricted to the public buildings at the top of the hill. Our first two weeks here I was able to access it fairly well with my WI-FI booster, but then the signal strength seemed to fade.
Cable (via DISH Network) TV is very limited, less than 20 channels with only SD and kind of weird oversized picture.
All in all, this campground has the best rates in this area ($700 per month), and we will, no doubt, be back next summer for a month or so. - dhaney1944

This is our third stay here. Being in the Northeast, rates are high. For ten days, it cost us over $440.
The park has a lot of old growth trees, which make it very pleasant. We always reserve the corner space, which is quite roomy.
There are no sewers, but they will pump you out twice a week which works fine.
The office staff is not particularly friendly, which is something they need to work on. Grounds staff is much nicer.
When the office is closed (5 PM on weekdays), you have to have a token to raise the gate to enter the park. These tokens have to be purchased at the office for $1 each. With the rates they charge, they could well afford to simply GIVE you a token for each day you book.
A bigger problem is when you have visitors, they will be charged $8 EACH to enter the park. This is supposedly a fee to cover "use of facilities." The only real facilities are the swimming pool (which is quite nice) and the worn out, filthy, rotting miniature golf course (which costs an ADDITIONAL $1 each to use).
However, since the campground is so close to our daughter and grandkids, it's just too handy a location to pass up. - dhaney1944
Oct 2013 - $40.00
This is a very nice place to stay. The Delaware River is nearby, and the rural setting is quiet and restful.The staff is friendly with the exception of the younger girl who checked us in. Sites are grass, but we found a level area in ours with little effort. The place has a ridiculous number of speed bumps. Pets are supposed to be kept quiet but the owner's dogs could often be heard barking. There are a LOT of picnic tables which people keep moving around while you're out for the day, so we had to move them to get back into our campsite. My biggest negative would be that the gate will not work when the office is closed (5 PM), so you have to buy tokens for $1 each or you can't get in. It just seems like a really cheap thing to do. Why not just GIVE clients one token for every night they book? In spite of that, the place is well run and well organized, and we would stay here again. - Dave the Florida Gator
