This is a large destination campground with lots to do. It is well staffed by friendly people who know their business. Its the first time I've actually seen the pool, hot tub and beach staffed with lifeguards at a private resort. Most of the interior roads are dirt with some paved roads with heavier traffic. It is an older campground that shows its age but most of the campgrounds in the north east are no better. The common grounds are well maintained but management could do a better job of getting some of the seasonals to clean their sites a little better. We stayed here for a month at the rate of $725 in season but the daily rate is over $40. The electric is only 30 amps which was a problem during the summer. The voltage tended to drop off during days with high heat. Cable TV in an internal analog only system with a poor signal on the lower channels. The Wi-Fi is a hot spot at a pavilion. The maintenance people indicated the owner is thinking of upgrading a portion of his park to 50 amps. If he does he will be one of the few parks in the area that would accommodate class A's with two A/C's. - D in Davie

Okay for a night or two. Staff was friendly and helpful. Park is more for park models/seasonal and tents. Price is for W/E only. - Minden Mike

Panther Lake is a well maintained but old facility a nice wooded park like setting with level sites. WiFi is only available at the pavilion. We stayed as fulltimers from April - October 2011 this was our first campground. The staff is helpful, friendly and responsive to requests. During the week campground is quiet but at weekends gets busy with lots of activities for guests. We enjoyed our stay here and will stop by again. - limey84

We called the ranger from the Interstate and were able to get space for our larger rig near the end of the day. We were warned that we would just be in a parking lot, basically. there is no potable water in the park, no hookups, just parked between lines, for space 1, in the parking lot, which we found unusual. The park was quiet at night, also we noticed the lake, which was hard to see from our location, was down in water level as well.
we used the dump station on the way out in the morning. Also, roads to the park are paved but fairly uneven asphalt. Don't go into the area needing fuel, as there are only two choices, and the main road has a huge concrete New Jersey barrier running up and down the highway, which necessitates doing huge and dangerous U-turns with a rig. We finally had to unhook, just to get into a place. We wouldn't go back to the park again, unless a real emergency for a place to stay. We listed the site satisfactory only because we have no problem dry camping and with the threat of rain, we thought it would be ok to park on pavement. - elduque

Stayed before the weekend, reservation website will show available sites but must reserve at least two nights in order to book plus Reserve America reservation fee. Weekend most sites were reserved, mixture of grass field and reservoir/lakeside sites. Main roads are paved, roads in campground are gravelly as are the campground parking sites. Sandy beach is a distance walk from campground which make the sites more private. Bathhouses are older and have individual toilet and separate shower units. Most sites are level and well spaced, low hanging tree branches make some campsite roads difficult to maneuver with bigger rigs. No hook-ups but good dump station and water connection by campground entrance. - travelin' guy

A beautiful park on the Spruce Run Reservoir. The condition of the restrooms were the main reason I could not rate the park as a 10. The facilities are quite worn and, although they were cleaned daily, weekend use was overwhelming and by Saturday night things were pretty grungy. There were 5 stalls and 3 showers (one of each wheelchair accessible)in each of the two bathroom buildings, but one of the buildings had only one shower in use, and one of the men's showers ran cold water only. Weekdays the campground was almost empty. It is primarily a popular weekend place for extended families who are tent-camping; definitely great for kids with the lake, a beach, boat rentals and playgrounds. Our spot was tight for a 32' Fifth-wheel due to overhanging trees. (There is lots of space between sites.)If you have a rig this large the following sites will accommodate you: 7, 8, 9, 16, 17, 21, 24, 33, 39, 61, 67, 70. Note: The park day-use area allows pets, but the campground does not. - Horizons28

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. - Aussie Gap Year

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! - blues traveler

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! - Jim and Ben

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. - dhaney1944

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. - Dave the Florida Gator

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. - bug512

This is a hard review to make. While our site and hookups were excellent, and the grass and weeds in our area was neatly cut, The area by the store and game room was very overgrown. From our arrival...we checked in, they gave us a paper with our site # and map. There were 2 site numbers crossed out on the paper, and the 3rd didn't match the # on the map. We were with friends and requested sites close to them. Shouldn't be a problem, the RV sites don't fill up. Went to our site, we were 4 sites from our friends. Plenty of open spots. Called the office and asked if we can move to ff11. No problem. Figured out how to level and the site had perfect afternoon shade thanx to 2 trees. Most sites in this section have sun all day. Friday night, someone was partying till at least 4am, including chopping wood throughout the night. My wife asked about it Saturday, and she was told yea, they were up till 5am. You knew and didn't do anything? It was a Holiday weekend so the tent sites and cabins were full. The staff allows drinking anywhere. In the gameroom, there was a bottle of whiskey being passed around the pool table. On the fire truck ride, a whole group came on bringing bottles, and there was even a guy hanging of the back who looked like he had no idea where he was. Pool was too crowded for comfort. Weeds and trash around the office was terrible. Game room and office had switches and receptacles hanging out of the wall. For the good points....lots of activities, staff was friendly, and the fireworks display was impressive for this campground. Store had the basics. Sites in the field section are huge. They could use more stone but they aren't bad. Would we camp here again? Probably not. ATT data and phone worked great. No wifi available anywhere in the campground. - Mike Jh

OK, I will admit, this isn't the best looking campground around. But the people are very friendly and the owners and the seasonal residents are working on improving things a little bit each year. We have been coming here for 6 years, with others in our group for 9 years. The group gets the sunrise retreat cabins. These are actually trailers. They aren't the cleanest things around, but you're camping, do you expect it to look like the Marriott? The price is right though, and it includes a bathroom, two separate bedrooms, one with a full size bed and one with a bunk bed, and a kitchen/living room combo with a futon, a full size fridge and an apartment sized oven. The cabins are arranged in a circle around a big field, and when we book all the cabins we get the field for free. We use this to sit around the campfire together, to cook and serve food, and to play volleyball, football and soccer. It is a very large area. We actually camped on a water/electric site this year with our popup, and it was a nice large and level site with a picnic table and fire ring across from the field. The roads are gravel, but we made it up them fine. The employees go out of their way to accommodate our group, bringing us folding tables to use, and even taking our whole group on a private fire truck ride around the campground. There are a lot of seasonals and some are run down, but this is slowly improving. Also, they redid the bathrooms a couple years ago and now they are kept clean. The pool can sometimes be dirty and I wish this would improve. There are multiple playgrounds and the kids in our group enjoy playing on them. Overall, we've had many great experiences here. It is by no means the best campground out there, but I will be back, hopefully for many years to come. - kristy29

We wanted to go to a local campground to try out our new TT. For some reason someone in our group of 4 travel units picked this place. We all agreed we would never be back. Our sites were located in the first section (just right of the entrance). All gravel sites -- all only 8 ft wide. Most were covered with weeds & grass had not been cut in 3-4 weeks. Several sites had poison ivy right at the water hook up. We did drive around and check the rest of the CG out. Mostly permanents - not even seasonals. All interior roads are in desperate need of repair -- full of bumps and gullies - barely passable in a truck, let alone pulling a 5th wheel or TT. LOTS of run down trailers in the CG -- some looked like they had not seen use in 10 years. Full of leaves, garbage, furniture tossed about the insides, etc. Rental units old and not maintained. Huge junkyard of trailers within site of interior roads. Dumpsters were jam packed and garbage was laying all over the ground - don't think they had pick-up within 2 months. Store had lots of stuff in it but not the basics - they did not have tea or sugar. Minigolf course was not maintained and unplayable. No activities. The pool was clean and there were a few people in it. I did not venture into the bathrooms. Overall I would say that this is the worst of campgrounds. Would ABSOLUTELY encourage everyone to find another campground. - jeanette b

Was a nice weekend. We've stayed here many times. The campground is always clean and the staff is friendly. - Mike in NJ

This is an absolutely beautiful location but I would not stay here again. The drive into the park and the registration parking was on a very dangerous hill, not good if you don't have very good brakes. The site was again in a beautiful location but it was very unlevel. I have an automatic leveling system and it would not level the RV. I had to use it in the manual mode and still didn't get it right but acceptable for one night. The price, given the time of the year, was ridiculous. The hookups were not well placed, I had to move way forward to even think about hooking up to electricity. The water pressure was so low, I think if I had used a pressure regulator, it would have helped not hindered. I would have hated to have been here in the height of their season; there would have been no water. The road around the sites was very tight, if someone with little to no experience with tight places would have ruined their RV. The site was dirt with a little stone thrown in for the tourists. - Jack&Wanda

A clean, well-maintained park in a hilly area. Slight slope to most sites but easy to level. Good hookups, sewer old style non-threaded requiring rubber doughnut. Good cable, local channels plus NY and Philly sports teams. Gravel roads but not dusty. Lots of activities for kids, including fishing pond and panning for "gold". Moderate sized very clean pool. Small store with basics, bread/milk etc. Easy check in, friendly staff. Nature/fitness trail a plus. Only saw one other couple besides us without at least one dog. The RV across from us had five dogs in an outside pen, but the owners were attentive to quieting them when necessary. During the day we could almost always hear barking from one location or another in the park, but it was just background noise and not a deal breaker. CG is extremely quiet at night and we were there over a weekend. Heavy rain did not stop numerous campfire lovers from trying to burn wet wood. Enough smoke that we closed our windows and went with air conditioning the second night. A decent breeze and dry weather would have eliminated the issue. Overall this was a pleasant camping experience and we would certainly return. - valandmichaele

As always, a very enjoyable trip. Road to the campground can be adventoureous, but take your time and its no problem. Probably the best campground wifi I've ever seen, and it's free. Lots of activities and the store has all the basics and more. Excellent bike riding. We have kayaks now, so we can't wait till our next trip there. - Mike Jh
May 2016 - $58.00
Great place for families. Lots to do, which is nice since it is pretty far from anything. This is the second time we camped here. It is clean, the spaces are large, and there are full hookups in most sites and water/electric in others. Very well kept and peaceful. - linda f

Kicked off the 2016 Camping Season for us over Easter weekend staying at Otter Lake for the first time.
We stayed in site LF10 which was conveniently located near the front of the campground; just off the main road. Site was adequate width with a near level gravel base. Site had great access to the lake and would be great for fishing. Tree branches did block any satellite signals; however with the campground cable we were able to receive over 70 channels. Hookups were mid site and very convenient. Verizon Wireless signal was not excellent but manageable. Campground had a few activities that the kids enjoyed for the weekend, such as indoor pool (which is a decent walk from the this site, but was worth it) firetruck rides, and Easter related events as well.
We will definitely make a return trip to Otter Lake in the future! - SJEAGLES609

This place is so pretty, wooded and green and right on the Delaware River, that we wished we could have stayed longer than the five days we did. Nice and helpful staff. The only downsides were lack of sewer hookup (typical for that area - they have a drain service) and grass-on-clay sites. After a rain, the site became so slippery that our 2WD truck got stuck and we had to be towed out. - Ray Waugh

This is a private park with many full time residences on site. They have a section for short time visitors. They escort you to your site and assist in hook ups if needed. We stopped here as we passed through the area. They have two pools and two stores where you can get supplies. We will stay here again when we come south from our present trip. - A hitch and hop
Jul 2015 - $40.00
Watch out for kids running a muck on electric golf cars. If you complain in the office about it, you get blown away. There is no interest. Many of the sites are very narrow and a seasonal site person can take up 2-3 sites leaving you with no room, not even to park your car. The security guard, in the guard house at the entrance, old man with white hair, is very nasty, like he owns the place. - been around

Great little park. Mostly permanent residents, but staff, residents and campers were friendly. Some shade, easy pull-through sites. - Casper2011
Jul 2016 - $42.00
Road is a little dusty coming in but the CG is very pleasant and well maintained. Owners on hand are very nice and helpful. Most units are permanent but very well maintained like second homes. We had a level, gravel site, HH26. Room between sites is ample. Electric service and water good. Picnic table and nice fire pit. Nice pool, play area, fitness center, ping pong , volleyball and badminton available. Great wifi. We came in to spend one nite but stayed for 4. Would definitely stay again. - Team Asphalt
Jun 2016 - $49.00
This is a nice family campground with plenty of kid-friendly activities. The whole park is on a hill, and the part we camped at was tiered, with a small fence and landscaping between our neighbor & us. Hookups were very good & convenient. Cable TV was extensive and WIFI worked well. Nice picnic table and firepit are at each site. Drive very slowly as all the roads are fairly steep. There are some permanents & long-term, but the park is well-kept. They checked on us after we arrived at our site to be sure everything was good. We liked it here, but it was a little pricey. We would come back. - R&S
Sep 2015 - $45.00
We stayed twice in the 2015 season. What a gem! While the sites in the Hemlock Hollow may be a bit close, they are wonderfully landscaped - gravel but with a grassy patch in each site for the picnic table. Never felt like we were jammed in. WiFi reception probably the best, and fastest, we've experienced, almost as good as home. And cable TV was clear, not grainy. Owners and staff friendly, helpful, accommodating. Would definitely stay here again, even if it meant going a bit out of our way. - LPWms
