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. We camped at Delaware River Family Campground in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Delaware River Family Campground in a Motorhome.

We checked in on Friday afternoon around 1 PM, since we booked weeks ago we paid in full and thought we could drive to the site. Not so lucky, we were greeted at the entrance gate where a staff member asked us our name and wrote some information and then were told to go the the office to check in. So to the office we go, were asked how many kids and adults, I informed them three adults and no kids. Another $24 for your guest please (then accidentally charged us $92). Really? OK, with that done they informed me that the 30 amp service is for lights only. No electric heaters, water heaters or air conditioning. Everything is extra. Check in took about 30 min before we went to our site. Once at the site we hooked up our electric and water, the utilities worked fine over the entire weekend. There are over 50% seasonal campers here. Sites are tight, almost rally like where your awning comes close to touching your neighbors slide. Fire wood is $6 per bundle (6 pieces) you are not allowed to bring your own in, you must buy it from them. The Delaware River is so nice looking there. Oh, make sure you do not get a site up by the road, there are lots of loud motorcycles that drive along Route 46. Sorry but we did not use the bathhouses or showers over the weekend. We were on Oak 57. We camped at Delaware River Family Campground in a Motorhome.

We didn't have high expectations, as this place gets mixed reviews. I'm guessing they don't write their own. We had a large group (some were from the north Jersey area which is why we selected this park), and all were set up together. The sites were not very level, but they were clean. The kids had an amazing time playing games and they actually kept themselves occupied! The staff was fine and we didn't require their attention except for checking in. Since we were all self contained and it was pretty chilly, we all used our own bathrooms and showers. I didn't even bother to look at theirs. We did have a good stay, but probably won't return especially in season. I'm sure it gets really crowded. We camped at Delaware River Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Just returned from a weekend stay. We stayed here several years ago and enjoyed this campground so decided to go back with our new RV. The staff was great upon check in and offered us a variety of sites. Since we had a lot of rain, I walked down to look at the sites and the site we reserved was wet and muddy. The staff told me to pick from several other available sites and just let her know. We found a nice site by the river. We also liked all the free activities for the kids. They had a great Halloween party for the kids including pumpkin painting and hayrides which were all free. I don't understand some of the comments on this site about the staff. We will definitely return. We camped at Delaware River Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Great location along the Delaware River. Boat ramp and shore access for fishing, canoeing, etc. Basketball and Volley Ball courts and a large open playground field. Helpful friendly staff. There are a number of seasonally rented sites and a large number of tent sites. RV sites are nice size, with picnic table and shade trees. There is a free dump station and also honey wagon service ($10). On Saturday night there is a free movie on the campground TV channel. The equipment in the laundry room was clean but aging.

Stes: Way to tight. Barely enough room to open awning. Store: Poorly stocked. Rates: way to high for no sewer hook-up. Charged extra for each child. (We had no kids.) Experience: Very loud evenings. Alot of partying going on here. Would we stay again: No We camped at Delaware River Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is nice park with canoe rentals for the Delaware River. We had a site by the playground which was fantastic for our grandson to play and easy for us to watch him. I didn't notice any planned activities for children but that didn't matter he enjoyed himself and got lots exercise and fresh air. Some sites are tight we just fit in ours with the awning extended out. As tight as it was we still had our privacy. Small problem with neighbors negligence with their dog (barking all day). Campground owners took care of that promptly. Their pamphlet says it will not allow pitbulls, dobermans, or rotties. There is a boat ramp if you want to bring your boat. We had no problems at night with noise or during the day considering the playground right behind us. They were very well organized in getting you into the grounds and out of the grounds. Always someone there to help you especially at the end of our visit with the dump station. We all had a great time. We plan on returning in a few weeks.

Nice campground I didn't use the showers as I use the one in my parents camper. The beach on the river is a nice touch. The pool is nice too. Just not really a lot to do there, but a lot to do in the area. A bit pricey, but what ain't these days. We camped at Delaware River Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.
