We stayed in this park 1 night. The campground was clean, if a little run-down. The campground spreads around a pretty little lake. It seemed like it was mostly seasonal campers, with a few sites set us aside for those of us passing through. We were there during October, and many of the campsites were really decorated for Halloween. This is a Passport America campground. We camped at Timberland Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

Somewhat off the beaten path in the country in the woods only a few miles off the freeway and just down the road from Six Flags. The roadway through this older park is pretty rough and the sites are packed sand and not very level. They have a picnic table. They also have fire pits but fires were not allowed when we there due to the high fire danger. There a a lot of amenities; swimming pool, spa, miniture golf and a playground. They are on a small lake with fishing docks. This is an older park and could use some tender loving care. Even with the PA rate, it is still overpriced. We camped at Timberland Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Drive into Philadelphia and to Valley Forge.

This was an OK stay. Just one night. Huge pool. Bathroom clean. No laundry. Run down and seemed to be lots of full time people. Was fine for passing through. Overheard people asking to move because of snakes at their site. Not sure I'd stay there more than a night though. We camped at Timberland Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

Park is out in the sticks. The road leading to the park, and the road within the park, were horrible. We creeped along at walking speed and the coach was just shaking. So many potholes we got to the park, saw that the internal road was just as bad, and turned around and left, went to another park. They could fill all these holes, but apparently just choose not to.

Inside the park, lots of old RV's, construction equipment. Employees were friendly. We obviously will not be back. We camped at Timberland Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

Price was based on Passport America.Stayed here overnight in a pull-through full hookup site. Campground is woods and gravel, with some grass on site. Very rustic. Pool was beautiful. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Very family oriented atmosphere. Bathrooms were not air-conditioned, and a little dirty, but the roads are dirt. This is a decent campground and we would stay here again. It is also about 8 miles off the NJ Turnpike which is convenient. We camped at Timberland Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

The park is about 1/2 mile from the paved road. The entry road and interior roads are not paved - they are sand and dirt. Most of the park is seasonal and most amenities are geared toward children. Seasonals have campfires all night so I can't open the windows. There are loud announcements every 2 hours on weekends to call kids to activities. There is no enforcement of their quiet hours. The laundry and restrooms (I inspected them) are average. Good Sam needs to get back here to re-evaluate this park. It's way overrated on all levels. We camped at Timberland Lake Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here in a 42' RV. Friendly office staff. This served as an affordable base to take the train in from Hamilton Station for day-trips to NYC. Would stay here again. We camped at Timberland Lake Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate is based on Passport America. This campground is rough and in bad shape. Restrooms were never cleaned the two days we were there. The roads were so bad going in and out that we had things falling everywhere. The site we were on was not level. I had three tires off the ground. Some of the staff was nice, others made us feel like we were a bother. They wanted to charge me extra for sewer hook up. I do not like to be negative, but we are in a lot of campgrounds across the country and couldn't wait to get out of this on. We will not go back even at half price.

This is a delightful RV resort located in the woods and next door to Six Flags. The office personnel are very helpful and friendly. They have a theme for every weekend and are decorated for Halloween right now. It is a quiet place and one we will recommend to our friends and we would stay here again. My Verizon MiFi works well.

A lot of things must have changed since the previous reviewers. The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful, the pool was clean and bright. The restrooms that I saw were clean and well-maintained. Each space in the area where I stayed was level and gravel, with water, electric and cable. The park has mini-golf, a playground and a big pool; and it is located on a nice little lake with boats available. There are a number of seasonal visitors in some areas of the park and they have some things stored outside their RVs which gives it a little tent city look. However, I have heard no noise from anyone, and everyone: overnighter and seasonal alike, seemed very pleasant. I observed no irritating or objectionable behavior at all. They accept Passport America on Sunday - Thursday nights, giving a 50% discount. I would absolutely stay here again. We camped at Timberland Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

Stay Away from this place! Owners were clueless about their own policies. Sites were small and poorly maintained. It felt like we were camping in a recently bulldozed construction site. The bathrooms are the worst I have been in out of all the campgrounds I have been to. The lake just looked dirty and some of the docks were falling into the lake. No separation between campsites so you get to know your neighbors. It was extremely overpriced at $44 a night plus $6 a night for each additional person. Each campsite was supposed to hold 5 people but when we arrived our site could hold one 2 person tent and the picnic table. If you go here it's your own fault! We camped at Timberland Lake Campground in a Tent.

This campground was a mud hole. There was no gravel and very big potholes filled with water. We intended to camp here for one night with our dogs. I would never stop here again or recommend it to anyone. Did they ever hear of the words "gravel" or "concrete"??? We left and asked for a refund (which they did give us). WalMart was far better.

Nice wooded setting, around a little lake. Could be, and possibly was a great family campground. However, it has turned into an absolute dump. Rutted, dusty roads, uneven sites, trashy long-term weekend camps with moldy oldies, sewer smell: you get the picture. Take a pass. We camped at Timberland Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

This place personifies the description of a dump. Roads rutted, slimy, muddy, slick. Staff led me into trouble and caused damage to motorhome. NO COMPENSATION. Park (loosely) should be condemned by state as unusable and UNSAFE. Sewer smell is bad. We camped at Timberland Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

OMG! I COMPLETELY agree with the last 2 reviews on the condition of this campground. Saying it was a DUMP is putting it NICELY!!! Our first sign to turn around should have been the bumpy 2 mile dirt road where we had to drive literally 1 mph to get down. The potholes were huge and there was no way to avoid them since they were everywhere. Second sign to turn around was the VULGAR eating out of the dumpster when we pulled in. The office/store is disgusting: dust and dirt everywhere. The sites are basically sand and just disgusting. No sewer hookups but that didn't prevent the "residents" from just dumping on the ground. We were the only "visitors" there and I can see why. This place is a dumpy trailer park and that is putting it lightly. Whatever you do, avoid this place!!!! I have warned you. We camped at Timberland Lake Campground in a Motorhome.
