I was hugely disappointed the minute I turned off Hawkins Rd onto Reed Rd. Pot holes galore. Muddy mess after a bad rain storm. Did not feel comfortable at all. Weekend party place. Lots of golf carts and constant back and forth traffic. Workers were nice...they helped me back in my rig and set up. I was supposed to stay 2 weeks but found a different park and moved after one week. Rules printed were not really adhered to or overlooked for long-term guests. We camped at Timberland Lake Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Stopped to spend 4 nights at this campground originally due to its proximity to New York City via train. We stayed in spite of the negative reviews and were prepared for the worse. What a pleasant surprise this turned out to be. Valid complaints were stated about the roads into and in the campground being bumpy and narrow. This was accurate and much work could be done to improve these conditions. None of the conditions are severe enough to damage the trailer or tow vehicle however and once you are in and set up it is a very nice place to camp. As I said to the clerk in the office we are set up, the site is level, the water, electric and sewer all work and we get great satellite reception. In addition, the office personnel are super nice and very accommodating. What more could you expect and the Passport rate was honored in the busy season which is something many of the Passport Parks do not do. To top things off in addition to providing me with a great rate they gave me an additional $20.00 first time customer discount which was not anticipated. I would highly recommend this as a great place to camp if your plans take you to NY City or to Six Flags which is about 4 miles from the CG. Enjoy. The train station to NY Penn Station is about 21 miles from the CG. Rate includes Passport discount in addition to a first-time customer discount and is averaged for the 4 days. The site was sunny because this is what I requested in order to get good satellite coverage. We camped at Timberland Lake Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This was a cute little, old, campground. A little hard to navigate with a big rig but doable. Our site was very pretty (large trees) but very un-level. Our front wheels where about 2-ft off the ground and that is with about a foot worth of blocks under the jacks! The roads also could use some matienance, they had a lot of pot holes that are hard on big rigs. I cannot say much about the amenities since we didn't didn't stay during the day. We choose this campground due to location. We drove into Philly one day (1-hr drive) and then into New York the next (1-hr drive). It was located in the middle of our 2 destinations. We camped at Timberland Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

Be sure to ask about their free night offer. We booked 2 nights and got the 3rd free which made our stay really cheap!

The road going in was extremely narrow and unpaved. I don't know how two rigs of any large size could even pass each other at the same time. The woman at the office handed us a map that was useless. The sites are poorly marked and not defined, if it wasn't for a resident who noticed our distress, we would have never found it. They had golf carts there, and with such poorly defined sites someone should have escorted us. It was not level and had deep ruts all over. Although pet friendly, you aren't allowed to walk your pet and must keep them on your site. There was no lighting at all. Outside our site was the perfect example of "pitch black": You couldn't see your hand in front of your face, I'm not exaggerating. It rained and a stream was running down our site. I noticed that many people seemed to have units that were parked there and might come up for weekends, etc. The sites along the water where very picturesque, although the docks looked like they might cave in. I wouldn't visit this campground again. We camped at Timberland Lake Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Location was handy but the road in and out was one lane. God forbid if you met another RV, it would require one to back up to one of the two wide spots on the quarter mIle road. No trees in our camping area. Not only the road into the camp but the roads all through the campground were horrible with massive holes, divots and wash outs. Very rough on my camper and vehicle. Too expensive for the site value. We camped at Timberland Lake Campground in a Travel Trailer.

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.

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.
