Great State park campground, with a beautiful lake for fishing and swimming. The public use beach is a short walk from the campground, is very nice, equipped with lifeguards, has playgrounds, bathrooms with showers, and a snack bar. The park is clean and pristine. The rangers were friendly and helpful. Education programs are held for free throughout the summer. - Mobeggert

The entrance to get in is only wide enough for 1 vehicle never mind 2 trucks pulling campers. The interior roads are a shambles, potholes, ruts and steep hills and super narrow. The electrical system is outdated with only 30 amp. The voltage was fluctuating the entire length of my stay. I had to shut down the pwr management system so the power would stay on. The water was on one side of the site and the electrical on the other. The cable TV wire was up in a tree and I had to search for it. The sites were a nice size but need serious amounts of gravel to level them out. We would not go back to this campground. - jambro

Overall the campground was good. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The roads are in poor shape, they are narrow and have with many pot holes and loose gravel on the up and down hill parts which makes pulling large heavy campers precarious when meeting oncoming traffic in blind areas. I will not stay here again. - Zinger Travels

Excellent friendly staff made the stay great. Pool is a good size and clean. Bathrooms were small, but clean. I did not use the showers, but did look at them and they seemed clean. The campsites have good room and a good mix of out in the open and tucked away in the shade. The weekend we stayed was a Christmas in July weekend so we figured it would be packed and out of control, but it was well run and even the campers were polite. We had a great time. The only downside if any is that the campground is very hilly and mostly unpaved (crushed gravel). If you camp way in the back (M section), you are going to want to have a bike or something because the walk is a nice one to the front were all the activities are. We stayed in the M section and loved it. We stayed here hoping to find a seasonal site for the future and we are seriously thinking about making this our seasonal home next year. We camped here in a 34' rig and had plenty of room. - ever1ast15

Should have anticipated a problem when I did not get an email confirmation after 3 requests. Arrived after dark do to traffic issues. Park is not kept up very well. Narrow roads with trees not trimmed very well. Could not find site due to resident parking on site and lousy markings. The number is at back of site and is carved into wood post. Asked office for help. They stated they could not understand wife and hung up. Site had lot of trees that needed major trimming. Sites are very close together. The population is owners and some short term renters. Bathrooms are distant and only two dumpsters were present, which are very full. Campground is definitely showing its age. Did not see a wi fi availability. Cable was ok. Would not return. - JOHNGW

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

Only campground we've seen that charges per person ($15). Great price for 2 persons, not so much for a family of five or more. Campground gave us a great site by the pond. Staff was very friendly. Our site was electric (30 amp) and water only. Electric outlet was worn giving a loose connection. Owner said my plug was the problem but I've used it since in other campgrounds without a problem. Sewer dump is in front of office and can be difficult to access if vehicles are in the way. We were in the area visiting relatives and would stay here again. - halfdimes

Evaluating this park is tough because everything was frozen. The host did talk us through getting lost on the way to it and got us "unstuck" to get out of the park the next morning. For friendlineess/helpfulness they definitely get an A++ for 2 tired travelers looking for a place to land in a season of ice and for that we are very thankful. - ralinda

The previous campers who had bathrooms in their trailers were probably unaware about the bathrooms. My husband saw human waste on the walls; the woman's bathroom had an over flowing toilette with brown water running from the toilette to the drain in the floor. It smelled like backed up sewer. The drywall was also just set up against the wall. It was slum for camping. The 2 big dumpsters for garbage was over-flowing. Bags of garbage ended up on the ground, which camper's dogs were eating and no one seemed to care. It looks like they are putting up a play structure from a McDonalds that wasn't finished, so it had orange tape around it. The pond was all brown and disgusting. The second bathrooms had the doors open so bird droppings were all over the stalls. The birds use it as a bird house: it was so gross. It just looks like they have too many projects going on at the same time, that aren't getting finished. They have a nice pool, a great baseball field with an electric score board and a roller hockey/ ice hockey arena. To me it seemed like one of the owners is into baseball and hockey, and the campground pays for it. If they knocked the bathrooms down and build new ones, and kept up: then this place could be a gem. The sites were big, but on the downside you had to share an electrical hook-up, so make sure you have at least a 50 foot electrical cord. It's so shady that there is lots of (moss) on the trees, that gets onto the camper and/or tent. The Wi-Fi didn't didn't work, which makes me wonder if they really have any. We were packed up by 8:00am and ready to leave, but since we got here at 6:00 on a weekday they had already left, so we were suppose to wait to check-in and out in the morning. They were suppose to open at 9:00 am but we left at 9:00 and no one was even here yet. We would never return and I would warn all others not to go. I hate to say that since this is someone's business, but I wished someone else would have warned us. - Chatterbox

We have a 40 foot coach. This park is rated as "big rig friendly," and when we called to see if they had space for a 40 foot rig, they said yes. Technically this is true, I suppose. Our site was plenty long enough to park both the rig and toad. But getting to the site, and into the site was a nightmare. The roads are narrow, rutted, bumpy, and edged by trees (think forest) and rocks. We had to back and fill to get into the site, and got hung up on a rock trying to get in. I told them at the office about this, and a very nice lady there did apologize, but then told me, "other people have done it." Yes, and we did it too, but never again. - ZoAnn

The speed bumps at the campground will knock the fillings out of your teeth! Never mind what they do to your RV. Actually, if you want to see how secure your interior setup is or clean the grunge out of your blackwater tank, this is an EXCELLENT place to go.
We went at the beginning of camping season. Our site had a fire ring, picnic table, but there's no Wi-Fi.
There were only 2 sites open. Both back-in and these were all -gravel with no separation at all from adjacent sites.
The water spigot at our site was broken. We didn't want to bother the staff who had stayed late to check us in so we opted for no water hookup the first night.
We had an issue the next morning with rust in the drinking water that would not clear up after 20 minutes of running the water from the spigot.
A lot of full-timers live here but they were mostly very nice to us. Well... except for the guy who saw us trying to back into the first site next to his and cursed. We couldn't figure out how to get in there anyway so we took the other site.
We'd like to go back mid-season and give them another chance. - kalm_in_nj

Staff friendly and check-in efficient. Our site was located on the top of the hill at the backside of the campground. The roads were really narrow, rutty with speed bumps every 10' that were in need of repair or just needed removing. The sites are really large and the entire campground in wooded. Seems most sites are permanent and since we were there during the week, not many campers near us….in fact, none. Very secluded and quiet. Did not see many people except the occasional walkers going by. Except for the mama bear and 3 cubs visiting within 50' of our campsite….extra treat. Was surprised that the possible visitation of bears was not mentioned. The camp store is adequate but small. Grocery stores at least 15 miles away. - carol d

Super nice place: very clean, and well laid-out. The only complaint is the office hours are not very reliable. They close from 5-7pm and again at 10 pm each night: which is inconvenient. So I went down at 4:45 pm: they were already closed. We went for firewood at 9:30 pm: again they were already closed. Other than that, a great park! - ST59

We chose this campground because it was close and offered a lot of amenities for kids. Best part? The very large playground - the kids had a BLAST. The mini golf course was cheesy to us adults but the kids thought it was great. The kids never got to use the beautiful pool because a large group of adults took over the whole pool area for water football. Bathrooms were yucky but luckily we had a camper! Walking trails were overgrown and not maintained. - Its Me

Nice location - rural. Bathrooms weren't very clean. The sites were not very level. There were many campers with a lot of junk all over their site. The entrance looks like it will be wonderful, but the sites and the junk take away from that perception. - bonniejames

This campground is one of the few available in the Delaware Water Gap, perhaps the only that will accommodate campers. The park is simply "ok" - it will not "wow you" for sure. Meanwhile the location is perfect for exploring the region. I believe the campground has a lot of potential. Yet it doesn't seem to be promoted very much... There are recent reports of a new shower and bath house having been approved for construction. That's great news. Generally speaking the entire place could use an update. The best sites for camping are tent sites only located right up against the river. Camper sites with power and water are located closer to the entrance. The sites are decent size. The staff was friendly... the water pressure was low... The canoe service was not operating yet in April despite the great wether. - Jim and Ben

Over all this is a good campground if you are interested in spending time in the Delaware Gap rec area. Even though it is a concessionaire CG they honor the America the Beautiful pass which is reflected in our rate. This is a very wooded site. Internet service required using our antenna. Only tent camping is on the river. Now for the not so good. The restrooms are old and need a major cleaning & paint job. The roads are very narrow with lots of trees. The power boxes are so far forward the we had to use 30amps because our 50amp cord could not reach. It is very busy on the weekends but during the week it was almost empty. We would stay here again if in the area - Nana25K

This site is in the middle of the Delaware Water Gap National Recreational Area. The campground is well shaded and the sites and roads are gravel and dirt. This sites look pretty level and we had no problem leveling up with the system in our MH. We had a 50 amp site and the power was clean. The bathrooms and showers were clean but the hot water was pretty much an illusion. The best you can hope for is a degree or two above body temp. We paid $18.50 a night with the old peoples federal discount. The going rate is $37/night. Way too high for what you get. Verizon phone and Wi-Fi worked but the Wi-Fi was pretty slow. I down graded this campground to a 5 due to the lack of hot water. It's convenient to a lot of nice water fall hikes. - pumper9x9

I have been camping at this forest, mostly with groups, since the 1950s. It remains quite rustic with no RV facilities. Sites are located in two separate areas. There is one area by a pond that is on grass and will permit you to pull through. Roads can be narrow and you should discuss the area with the ranger before picking a site. Wooden cabins are also available. The park contains a beautiful lake with wonderful swimming, and is next to an excellent athletic field/playground -- a major attraction. While water supplies are not at the campsites, there is a spring fed pump that gives you some of the finest water in NJ. People come to the park in off hours to fill their bottles. The park is open year round, but don't expect immediate help if you are trapped there in a snowstorm. There is a nearby RV dealer, Escape RV, which offers excellent parts and service. Also nearby is Jumbo's, a super restaurant for comfort food and ice cream. - rvwanderer

There are not many sites for an RV. Ours is 28' with no slideouts. I would say 30' would be the limit. We had site #26. The only other sites we would have considered are #28 and #20. You had to back 100' up a slight hill. If you are not good at maneuvering your camper this place is not for you. There are some inclines to haul up also. The privacy is great and the views on top of the mountain are awesome also. Staff was very friendly and helpful. - Jodee

This Place is Great. I went up There with a few friends for Memorial Weekend. I took my 08 Itasca Latitude. They had many spots available to house big rigs like mine. Staff was great. Parts of the campground where under renovations. Apparently this place is under new ownership. They are doing an amazing job fixing this place up. Sure to be a hidden gem in the near future. I use to come to here when I was a kid, have been back in years. I really am thinking to grab a spot now while they are still available for such a cheap price. I will be back for the Fourth of July for sure.Thumbs up! - RvRanger
