A very nice campground, beautifully set up. Quiet and fairly spread out. The owner was very friendly. We camped at Camp Taylor Campground in a Travel Trailer.

DO NOT FOLLOW YOUR GPS. This is what the staff member admitted that she should tell everyone when they call to make a reservation. Unfortunately for us, and many others before us according to the residents on the hill approaching the park, we were not told this and ended up having to call road side assist to tow us up the extremely steep road. Cost $650! When we arrived at the park the owner made all sorts of excuses, saying that all their literature states that the hill is steep - yep it does, in tiny print, certainly not in bold letters as it should be. Second most important thing for the owner was to make sure that all our family had signed the check in form - no consideration at all that we were still settling our account with the tow truck people and our nerves! As we had been hanging on the side of the hill for so long we decided to buy a bag of ice to cool down a couple of drinks - $6.50 for the bag! The cost of a 3rd (or subsequent persons) is $12 per night - highest we have ever had to pay in all our 18 months of travel. The park itself is pleasant enough, sites under trees , electric and water but no sewer. The wolf preserve is cool - there was no info session on the day we were there but still went for a walk and saw some from the outside of their enclosure. The alternative roads to the entrance of the park are definitely not big rig friendly, very narrow and windy with lots of low hanging branches and still relatively steep. We camped at Camp Taylor Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

Camp Taylor is a very nice place to stay IF you like this type of CG. Looking for a Resort with all sorts of fancy stuff? DO you NEED a concrete pad, 100 channels of TV, High speed Internet, 47-11 things to do carefully orchestrated for you? Then you probably won't like this CG. If on the other hand, you like a somewhat rustic place, no street lights, no highway noise, trees, nature? Then you will like this CG. From here you can take hikes up onto the Appalachian trail and a few other feeder trails. You are in a Rural Area, it is not a 5 minute drive to Walmart! However there are a number of places nearby to visit, farm stores, flea markets, a few antiques stores. AND there is the Lakota Wolf reserve on the premises. This is a MUST SEE.

The CG itself, the sites are spacious, you are mostly shielded from the site immediately next to you. There is a stone fire ring, not an old rusty truck tire rim. There is water with decent pressure and 30 Amp electric at your site. You can back in far enough that you and your car are not hanging out in the road ways. We stay in the 'circle' area, on a clear night you can set up a telescope and see the universe! no light pollution here!

Some times the wolves will start to howl! An awesome sound. Yes there are Bears in the area, we didn't see any.

Do follow the directions on the website and not your GPS to get here. Your GPS will take you up some REALLY steep roads. Camp Taylor is worth the trip. The people running the Campground are very nice, yes they have some rules, if you don't like their rules, you probably have issues any place you go. They are not onerous and anyone that can't grasp the importance is likely someone you don't want to camp near! We camped at Camp Taylor Campground in a Motorhome.

Close to several hiking trails accessible from the campground- ask for map at desk... the site we stayed in was large... utilities worked well and the internet was fairly useful (and free). This campground is a great location for mild to serious hiking in the Water Gap and the Lakota Wolf Preserve is interesting as well... great place to stop for a rest / showers and recoup' if your hiking the AT. Campground is about 2 miles from the AT accessible via established trails.

No pool but there's a nice swimming pond that was very clean and refreshing. Great place to introduce kids to hiking or embark on a very serious one for yourself / experienced. Ask for free hiking maps at front counter. (Elevation / colored trails... excellent) My kid loved the trinkets and "gift shop stuff" a good hike deserves a reward!

Two trails on property one of which accesses Delaware Water Gap National Park (and Worthington State Park). One can access these trails from Camp Taylor directly, no driving to trails. Lakota Wolf Preserve is interesting with two short tours in the day, morning / evening. Call ahead for directions to avoid steep roads...

This was an average park that could use some updating. Staff was friendly and helpful. The setting in the woods was nice and peaceful and management enforces quiet hours which we like to see. For the hiker, there are many opportunities. Bathrooms and showers are adequate but dated and cleanliness varied from day to day. It is a long walk to the showers and flush toilets from parts of the campground. There are portable toilets scattered about but this campground really needs at least two additional modern bathhouses on the back side for its size. Very few sites are suitable for larger rigs and access roads are tight. This campground is also expensive for what it is and there are lots of add-on costs. With a little updating and some improvements this could be a first class location (and worth the higher cost) but as it stands now its just average....not great....not bad. The main attraction here is the wolf preserve. We camped at Camp Taylor Campground in a Motorhome.

Thank you Camp Taylor for appreciating our military with two free nights!! Our first ever camping trip was a success! The owners keep the place clean and orderly. The bathrooms were spotless. They have a well stocked store. The campsites were spacious, with a lining of trees between. The hiking was great and wolf preserve was a nice surprise. We'll be back for sure!

I was pleased with our 2 night stay at Camp Taylor. We stayed in site 52 which was very large,secluded and located by a creek. Had a bit of trouble leveling the MH, but nothing that upset me. The park is an ideal secluded type campground for those who want to get away from the rat race and enjoy being in nature. It is very close to some great hiking. We did the 6.5 mile round trip Mt. Tammany hike. The view was gorgeous and worth it, but there is a short section of pretty vertical climb. The staff was very friendly and helped us with hiking choices and places in town. The only critiques I have are that there was a house under construction somewhat close to our campsite and there were times when the construction sounds were a bit disturbing. The showers are very clean, but they were a long walk from our campsite. Yes, the showers did require 25 cents per 5 minutes, which I found a bit odd, but did not bother me. All in all, we would gladly return to this campsite. We enjoyed it very much. We camped at Camp Taylor Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice rustic setting campground, large spacious sites and great location (Delaware Water Gap). We stayed on site 70, which I would recommend for larger RVs, or site 71. Some other sites would be difficult to level on if you are a larger motorhome, due to slope of site. Reason I didn't rate higher was the approximately 3 to 5 miles of over grown, low hanging branches on the road leading to the campground. I had to drive in the center of the road to avoid the tree branches hanging out in the road. Luckily, the road isn't well travel and I was able to go slow, would have been bad if someone had been behind me, or driving in my direction. The campground owner really needs to call State or County maintenance to correct this if he wants returning RVs. Also my surge protector did shut down twice for low voltage. I would still recommend this campground just for the location , atmosphere, and courtesy of staff. We camped at Camp Taylor Campground in a Motorhome.

This place isn't too bad. The workers are knowledgeable but prefer you stay out of their hair, if you know what I mean. Our site was clean and accessible. It was a very wooded area. You could easily hear the wolves howl at night. We camped at Camp Taylor Campground in a Tent.

What a great campground. We hiked to the Delaware Water Gap. Visited the Lakota Wolf Preserve. And enjoyed listening to the wolves howling at night. Campground had rocky roads: no good for bikes. Friendly staff. We had some loud neighbors, staff took care of it, even at 2 am. Quarter showers but clean and hot. We will be back next year. We camped at Camp Taylor Campground in a Tent.

Decided to stay here due to all the positive reviews. Campground is nice but not the best. Wi-Fi is OK if needed. Stayed in the loop near stream, site 63#. Sites are tight when crowded. Nothing really to do in the area other then to go see the wolves. We camped at Camp Taylor Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Our sixth summer visit here, and we are glad to say, this Campground still tops our list of stays along the east coast. We came up for our 6 day stay during a major heatwave. Several surrounding areas hit the 100 degree mark, but not at the campground. There were nice mountain breezes and the evenings were comfortable. As always, we enjoyed hiking the miles of trails, visiting the Lakota Wolf Preserve, and relaxing at our nice shaded site. The view of the pond was beautiful from our site and the sound of the stream was very soothing at night. We slept well. The campground is still neat as a pin, the CG owners are very nice, and always made us feel welcome. This place is truly beautiful. There is plenty to see and do at the campground and surrounding areas. Something worth mentioning. It is more enjoyable traveling around the NJ side of the Delaware Water Gap as traffic is nowhere near as bad as Rt 209 in PA can get. If you want to get out and about, do visit. The Old Mine Rd and Millbrook Village, Space Farms Zoo and Museum, Sunrise Mountain and High Point State Park. The Appalachian Trail can be reached right from Camp Taylor Campground. Take a challenging hike to the top of Mount Tammany for one of the most breathtaking views on the east coast. We will be looking forward to our next stay, hopefully in the fall. We love the fall colors. We camped at Camp Taylor Campground in a Motorhome.

It has very wooded sites. There is friendly staff and nice gift shop. There are no basic groceries like eggs, milk, and etc. Pet owners be advised that we had to remove ticks from our dog almost everyday. We use Frontline on our dog and still had to remove them everyday. We camped at Camp Taylor Campground in a Travel Trailer.
