36 RV Parks near Columbia, New Jersey
Jun 2017 - $40.00
Campground with a lot of private wooded lots - electric and water only. We have a 34 foot motorhome, and didn't have a problem, but it may be for the bigger rigs. You must use the directions on the website - the GPS will lead you on a VERY hilly road that will be a problem with your camper. Very friendly and helpful staff. It's deceiving but this is a big place. It has a small pond that you can go swimming, canoeing and paddleboating. The one strange thing is that this is bear country, but yet they have regular trash cans at each site. They are not bear proof. We didn't see the trash cans knocked over, but there are many reviews to the contrary. They should consider the safety of their guests. We did see a bear ambling across the woods when we first got there, but that was it. The campground borders on the Lakota Wolf Preserve - a wonderful place to visit while there. Will definitely be back. - Kevie

A very nice campground, beautifully set up. Quiet and fairly spread out. The owner was very friendly. - Laura Oostdyk

We stayed here before about five years ago and loved it. We have a larger fifth wheel now and the weather was hotter, so we found the 30 amp service to be completely inadequate. Also the sites were made for much smaller campers so we had very few options. When we told the management that we could not stay because of the voltage problems, they could not have been nicer and refunded our money immediately. - mary mcmoo

This was our fifth stay here, and the most pleasant. Most of the office staff are pleasant and helpful. The same is true of the maintenance crew. This year we were blessed with cooler weather, which makes for a much nicer experience when you are limited to 30 A. electric service. As mentioned in last year's review, a few 50 A. sites for us bigger rigs would be a nice upgrade. Our site was quite level, even though there was a lot of muddy ground due to quite a bit of rain. It wasn't a big problem. but we had to remove our shoes after walking outside. We were parked under some big, old walnut trees, which provided lots of shade. We got used to the occasional walnut bouncing off our roof. The only real negative experience was an RV with three couples who got very drunk and were disruptive until at least 3 AM. When the management heard about this, the drunken idiots were told to leave when they tried to book an extra day here. To me, it shows that the management is serious about civilized behavior in this campground. TV cable is limited to 20 channels, but that was more than enough. WI-FI is located up near the office but, with my booster, I could usually access it during weekdays. The weekends are much busier, and with the influx of kids I had to use my mobile hotspot. It is costlier this year to have visitors -- $10 each as a "facilities fee," but I would guess this is because some campers have abused using the facilities, which mostly consist of the pool and the miniature golf course, which has actually been upgraded since last season. In closing, there are not that many decent campgrounds in the area, and this one has the nicest scenery, location, service, and the lowest fees, at least for longer stays like ours. - dhaney1944

On the lower camp sites you hardly hear the traffic on 46. Most of the upper sites are park model trailers, cabins and campers who haven't been on the road in years. Nice quiet campground except if they are mowing lawn or pumping out. If your kids will be playing basketball, volleyball or on the playground Oak 6 might be a perfect site, you could watch them from your picnic table. The heated pool looked good but it was too wet and cool while we were there so we never got to try it. - LatitudeAdjustment

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

We went to this campground for a TOUR before becoming a seasonal ($2800.00 asking way to much $ for what it is) WOW! this place is run down. Bath houses dirty and falling apart. Lots of old and/or abandoned RV's. Grass area tall and over grown. Game room building/floor has a bad slant. playground was dated. Didn't bother looking at the pool. This is a large property and COULD be a amazing place if it was brought up to date and the grounds were taken care of. - Momszoo1

I would NOT recommend this place for anyone camping with families. Broken down trailers litter the landscape. Roads are in a poor state of repair. Electric 30 amp service was not available when checked in & electric lines were run above ground from site to site just to hook us up. Maintenance man ran over sewer caps when mowing grass so sewer connections were NOT capped. They added a new elbow after a complaint, but didn't secure it to pipe. So gray/black water leaked onto ground where the above ground 30 amp electric lines were! I told the staff about it but they just shrugged & said 'OK'. Never fixed it. When I asked why wasn't any of this done BEFORE we arrived, they said "Memorial day just kinda snuck up on us this year". Really??? Second the staff. Rules are non-existent at this campground. Everyone speeds from cars to golf carts & even though one seasonal put up a sign to remind everyone of the speed limit, no one cared & the seasonals are the worst offenders. Dogs friendly is one thing but to allow campers' dogs to run free is just a hazard. Yes, everyone thinks their dog is OK, but incidents happen. And just from a liability standpoint, the leash rule should be enforced. Oh, & people who don't leash their dogs, also don't pick up their poop either. Drinking & camping has always gone together, but at family campgrounds, people drink only at their campsites. This place, drinking & driving golf carts is a sport. Now the kicker, there is a 'weed' dealer living as a seasonal on top of the hill. He advertises right at his campsite with his web address posted on his car. Not only do seasonals drive to his site & buy, but outside customers also come into campground. This is well known to the staff & all seasonals. Overall, if you are looking to party & don't care about living conditions then this is for you. But if you family camp with children, this is NOT the place. Someone will get hurt here. - easycamper

Not a "family" campground. The bathhouse was horrendous, filthy the whole weekend we were there. The showers were barely operational. Most bathroom stalls were out of order and only two showers "worked". Water sprayed out of the spicket in all directions. Don't claim to have amenities when it's obvious you do nothing to maintain them. There were no "quiet" hours. Music and partying lasted well after midnight. There were also folks openly drunk in public places and drug use was obvious by some campers. Nothing I wanted my children around. If you have young children, hope they can sleep through anything if you want any type of rest in a tent. Broken down, dilapidated trailers were everywhere. Scenic views did not exist and it was far from being camping where you hope to be surrounded by nature views and sounds. This was by far the worst campground we've stayed at in our many years of camping. Also if you are in a tent, beware, my husband is covered in some type of rash from the "fauna" surrounding our tent site. Beware of the good reviews. It's obvious these are from their "seasonal" campers....aka folks in RVs. These folks do not use the bathroom facilities or tent sites, so they give a false impression on the state of the campground.
DON'T BE FOOLED!!!! This is not a family campground, but if you wish to party this is your spot, because management won't do anything to stop you! - Scenic Route Camper

We were a little concerned when we pulled in here for the first time, two cluttered seasonal sites and powerlines greeted of us, however, we were very impressed with this KOA overall. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, all the sites were level and well-maintained, and there was a lot for the family to do including a live concert Saturday. We've already booked again for next year. - GoldenGirl

The office was perpetually busy, so it was difficult to ask for help. However, I did ask about good places to hike and was advised to get a brochure somewhere because she wasn't sure. Fortunately, there are lots of online resources, but the staff isn't very helpful in that area. There isn't much shade near the RV sites. - Brian Jay Gould

The campground was great. My family love it. The only thing I can say is the guest cost could be a little less. Instead of $10 per person regardless of age. I feel say 16 and under should be $5 and adults to 65 should be $7 over $65 back to $5. We had 5 family members come visit us and the thought of paying $10 for my mom who is 66 for her to basically sit with us eat with us and only use the campgrounds restroom. I feel $10 is a little steep. Other than that cost I feel this is a wonderful KOA and would stay there again just wouldn't have guests or visitors while there.
The staff on the golf carts were driving around at top speeds,moving very fast through the campground even though the campground has a 5 MPH speed limit, with the little green guys that say slow. Too fast if they want the campers to obey the 5 MPH then so should they.. - EJB76

We enjoyed our stay at Triple Brook and will probably return. We stayed on Hill Top Circle at the top of the campground, on a grassy site along the tree line perimeter. The sites are a decent size, fairly level, and easy to back into. The roads are very narrow. The pools were beautiful and clean, and the store well stocked. The bathrooms were adequate, although only 1 stall had a locking door, and they needed more frequent staff attention then they received (cleaning, paper, etc.) . There seemed to be good WIFI coverage, but you had to purchase a code for access. We brought bikes, but the roads were too steep to use them. The mini-golf course was all torn up. Other facilities looked good. - scrunchie99

This is a small campground with a nice pool, tennis courts and pond. Fishing was catch and release which was nice. Small game room but enough to have some fun. Very nice staff. Roads were a little tight but we managed to get through ok. You have a choice of wooded campsite, or open field. Only down side was that no patio lights were allowed, so it was pretty dark and a little hard to see in the wooded site. This was a nice campground, I would recommend this place to families for a nice experience. - sassy67

A very large facility North of the charming town of Hope, New Jersey. For a large rig, the roads here are very small country roads and require a lot of caution to negotiate. Coming North from Hope, NJ, there were no signs at the turns and require good planning, as a turnaround on some of the roads would be very difficult.
We were in a site at the top of the hill on a beautiful grass area and the first night there, a Thursday night, was one of the quietest nights we have ever experienced at a park, contrasted with the next night, which was one of the noisest! There are many, many seasonol campers scattered everywhere, and come Friday night, it seemed like they all came out from the city to relax and party. We had a particularly noisy group near us that had all sorts of people come in, cars parked all over, sitting around a fire, and the noise of their talking and laughing was so loud, we slept with our windows closed and air conditioning on, to drown it out. They even brought a lawn mower and were mowing grass in front of their area. I mentioned the noise to one of the staff the next day and got a shrug of the shoulders. I know they like the money from the seasonal rentals, but they should police them more and make sure they abide by the same quiet hours that we have to follow. We would never stay there again on a weekend night because of that. - elduque

We were there to spend time with family from Virginia, New Jersey and Pennsylvania and were there for 7 days. The campground was quiet during the week which was very nice. The campground staff were friendly and helpful. - SWMich-Campers

This is my second season at Mt Vista. I came in May this year and left in October. I love this park. Staff is super friendly and helpful. Even on busiest weekends the nights are quiet. My site was big enough and had bushes on either side so my views were of trees not another camper. Wi-Fi always good.Water pressure excellent. - gone to the dogs

We stayed here in August for a long weekend. Staff was awesome due to my hubs being in an accident. They were very accommodating in helping me find my way around to purchase supplies. Sites are large and it is very quiet at night. - Aidens Nannie

I've camped here several times in a motorhome and tent. The sites are mostly seasonal with water electric and cable hookups. No site dumps but they do offer to clean out your tanks for a small fee - $12.00. There is also a dump station. You can also rent a trailer, park model, and cabins. The cabins are small but they are lake front and nice. The campground, located at the base of the Appalachian trail, is clean with a picturesque lake for fishing, a clean pool with a game room, volleyball, and a pavilion for weekends bands, DJ, and even Sunday church services. The baths and showers are decent but can get a bit overwhelmed on holiday weekends. The rental hook up sites range in size from small to very large and spacious. For me, the true gem of this place are the primitive wooded sites. All densely forested and large. About half are trailer and motorhome accessible. The rest are tent or popup only. They all offer a true boondocking experience. The staff is nice and accommodating. There are also many activities available. - DumpStation

Stayed during the 2017 "RiverFest" weekend in July. Big rain (3-5") first night, many campsites and some roads near us had huge "lakes" of water, but basically all drained during the next 24 hrs. Staff was very cheery and helpful, and ran many fun activities for the kids and adults, with all of them being free (many other c'gs would no doubt charge for them.) Bathrooms were clean & kept in good shape during our stay. Biggest draw for us is the very pretty site right on the Delaware river; the river is split around an island beginning at the front of the campground, and the river between the campground and island is like a large creek, about 4-5' deep at center, and fun and safe enough for even littler kids to play in. They do also have a nice concrete boat put-in right at the front of the campground for bigger boats that want to go in the main river. Site are generally large, and most have at least some shade. We always have a great time here, and will continue to return every year. - Will Dennis

Great family owned campground. Right on the scenic Delaware River. We really enjoyed camping here. The staff was very polite and helpful. There was plenty of activities to do. We did an 8 mile canoe trip on the Delaware River . It was AWESOME. They bus you up the river and then you canoe back to the campground. We really enjoyed our stay here and cant wait to go back. - scottrig09

This is a diamond in the rough. Park is undergoing renovations. Currently has several seasonal campers but owner states they want to attract more vacationers. Roads are unpaved and they are very steep - especially right where you have to park to check-in. They are planning to add a parking area on more level ground. Sites are gravel and surrounded by trees. Office is stocked with snacks a common camping items. Nice looking pool but fall weather prevented us from trying it out. Creek and little lake on property. Cable TV with about 70 stations. It will be interesting to come back in about 2 years and see the improvements. - akeller156

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). - bwco

Had an awful time getting to the park as our tow vehicle broke down about 10 miles away. Figuring we wouldn't make it, called and cancelled and they were kind enough to transfer our $$ to another weekend. We waited on the side of the road for 6 hours for good sam and finally gave up at 8:30pm and tried to push our truck at 5mph. We actually made it. They welcomed us at around 9pm, told us to pick a site and come and register in the morning. The following day we had a visit from the park sale manager offering us a membership. We were really wary as we had no idea what our truck was going to cost. Had that not happened, we would've signed right up. He, as well as the whole desk staff, we're EXTREMELY kind and even allowed us to stay (late) until we could get a friend to pick up the trailer while AAA picked up the truck. I would definitely return. Pool was nice. I like it a little warmer but it was not cold like others have been. Had a singer/guitarist in the evening by the pool. Great lounge. A lot of seasonals have great lights at night and well kept lawns. At night, looks like Christmas! Never did make it to THN but will check it out next time. Very close to Bushkill Falls which was nice. Highly recommend! (Fee was nightly rate plus one extra adult) - Missusdeeg
