Mixed emotions about this campground: Beautiful spot, site was great and backed up to woods and a little stream. Quiet hours start at 11 PM, and other campers were blasting music and making lots of noise up until 11. We go camping for the peace and quiet, and this was awful. Maybe they could have a set aside "quiet area" for those of us who don't go camping to party loudly. Power went out twice, and water went out once. Not long, about an hour or so each time, but it was a little frustrating. Site was not level. I used several boards to try to level the RV but still had a lean on it. Follow the written directions to get there. We did and had no trouble at all. We camped at Camp Taylor Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We wandered to the wolf preserve... saw deer in the pens, but no actual wolves. A little disappointed, but we weren't around for the wolf tour. There is a winery down the road towards Rt 80 that looks nice but we didn't stop there.

I'm really disappointed with this place. Other than the creek that runs through the park which kids get to play in. The spaces are cramped, the bathrooms were disgusting, and the employees at the front desk act as if guests are an inconvenience. When I asked if there were any activities happening during the weekend for kids her response was, "I don't know, that's why we print out activity schedules". Ironically, the guy who probably had the worst job there (the garbage collector) was the nicest person there. For the price they charge, I'd rather go somewhere with more legroom, better facilities, and less attitude. We camped at Camp Taylor Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We camped with a group in the site 51-71 area of the property. Site was level, large and relatively solid given that we arrived after and during days of rain. We were satisfied with the hook ups, got 30 TV channels with our antenna and good WIFI signal. We would visit again. We camped in a travel trailer.

You must take the Lakota wolf tour while you're here. The program is educational and fun at the same time. The wolves, foxes and bobcats in the preserve's natural habitat is better than anything you see in a zoo. Well worth the cost.

Beautiful setting, large level sites that were easy to get into with our 25' trailer. We had site 53 which backed up to a lovely brook. We visited the wolf preserve in the morning, which turned out to be one of the highlights of our trip. Staff was friendly and gave us several options for a site, as we arrived without a reservation. Be sure to follow their directions to avoid the crazy steep hill on the way in. There is a nice winery just down the road. We will definitely be back.

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. We camped at Camp Taylor Campground in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Camp Taylor Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

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.
