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.

We had a wonderful weekend. The campground reminds me of what real camping is all about. Trails in the woods, bonfire at night, no loud music. We camped at Camp Taylor Campground in a Motorhome.

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.

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.

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.

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.

We spent Columbus Day weekend at Camp Taylor. First off: Believe the other reviews about getting directions from the Camp Taylor website instead of using Map Quest or a GPS. There is a ridiculously steep hill on Mt Pleasant Rd. Take the extra 2 minutes and go down to Benton Road (skip the bottom of Frog Pond too). Benton to Frog Pond to Wishing Well to Mt. Pleasant. We took a ride out and tried Mt. Pleasant on our way to the DE Water Gap – Completely understood why one should avoid trying to pull up (or down for that matter) such a hill. Anyway, enough about the mountainous terrain. The Park is simple and they have a lot of rules, but they seem to have their reasons. The place was clean and nice. The showers were indeed hot (for 25 Cents) and the bath house was clean. We were given the last site that could accommodate our rig 3A right off the playground. It took some jockeying to get in, but a more experienced driver may have backed right in. The playground was convenient for our kids, who enjoyed the swings and sand, but spent more time exploring the creek than anything. The campground put on a haunted house in their pavilion. It was impressive, and pretty scary. My 9 year old went through – pulled the 6 year old out when a few older kids came out fairly terrified. I will give them credit, the 'monsters' in the haunted house saw that she was clinging to me pretty tight, they did not get in her face or try to scare her, they let us slide through pretty quickly and concentrated more on the other adult in our party. There are quite a few seasonal sites listed, but we never felt the 'What are you doing in OUR campground' vibe that you sometimes get from seasonal folks. The dump station was conveniently located on the way out and a sewer hose is actually available so you don’t have to dig your own out. Cell reception (Verizon) was fine all weekend. We didn't try to use Wi-Fi, I'm honestly not sure if they had it at all. Lastly there was no cable TV and I couldn't pick anything up on the antenna. Most folks don't care when they're camping, but I wouldn't want anyone to say I didn't warn them! We're considering another trip next year to take advantage of the hiking trails and the proximity to the Water Gap. The Lakota Wolf Preserve (associated with, but not owned by Camp Taylor) was fantastic. A highly recommended trip, especially for school age kids, scout troops, etc… Very educational, a little pricey at $10 per adult, $8 per child but they are funded solely by visitors and donations. Amazing to see Wolves that close. They also have 3 Bobcats and 2 Foxes. Watching the foxes circle Becky (who gave the Fox & Bobcat part of the tour) for grapes was hysterical. There's also a local winery that sells a few bottles related to the wolves sharing the proceeds with Lakota. Mention that you stayed at Camp Taylor and get 10% off! We camped at Camp Taylor Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We arrived at Camp Taylor about noon on Thursday. There was only one other camper in the "Loop" so we really enjoyed the quiet. Our site (#67) along the stream was spacious, level, and nicely shaded. The area did get more campers by Friday evening. Most were tenters with some noisy children. We were pleasantly surprised that our fellow campers were not rowdy or raucous, particularly on Saturday evening. There was some music but mostly live instruments—a guitar in the distance and a fiddle next door. The live music was delightful. My husband did have problems with the showers. Most of the men’s showers were closed due to repairs. They should have reassigned some of the women’s showers so that there would have been a more even distribution for each gender. There was a porta-potty in the “Loop.” It was fine when we got there on Thursday but by mid-day Saturday, it was horrible. It should have been cleaned on Friday to prepare for the weekend. I didn’t even want to walk near it on Saturday! Fire wood is $4.50 a bundle—both regular and kindling. Maybe if kindling were a bit less expensive, it might encourage folks to buy some. Finding kindling was a challenge so we weren’t too surprised to find a fellow camper helping himself to some of ours as were returned from a morning outing. Turned out to be a young child whose mother had him apologize!! Overall, we would return to this campground. Fall would be beautiful there. We spent two mornings biking on the Paulinskill River RR Rails to Trails bike path and visiting Blairstown Airport. For you Catholics, St. Jude in Blairstown is just a few miles north on Rt. 94. We camped at Camp Taylor Campground in a Tent Trailer.

We just returned from our second trip to Camp Taylor. This is one of our favorite places to relax. We stayed in site 66 again, right on the stream. Our children love to find salamanders and catch frogs. This trip we used the pond swimming beach and mini golf. All were satisfactory. Our camping loop was 99% capacity but our spacious secluded campsite offered us some solitude. Lots of families camping with early rising, noisy kids. I try hard to keep mine inside and quiet (hard to do with neighboring kids playing soccer at 7 AM). We will hopefully return this Fall. The wolves were quiet due to the heat.

Another perfect autumn retreat at Camp Taylor! Our site was large and wooded and it was awesome at night to hear the howling of the wolves in the Preserve while sitting at the site roasting marshmallows and hearing the trickle of the creek behind us. This is what camping is all about! We spent 4 days here and could have stayed more. We camped at Camp Taylor Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We travel up and down the East coast and always look forward to making this place one of our destinations. Four years in a row. Why? This place is beautiful, the owners and staff are great people, and the place is very clean. This place is truly a great camping experience. Alot of wildlife in the area and the NJ Skylands area and Delaware Water Gap are spectacular. Hiking is a must do. There is so much to see right in the campground. It is also great to see the wolves at the preserve. We hope to become seasonals there. This is one place we can stay at for a long time and never get bored. Thanks again and we hope to be there soon.
