Gorgeous location along the creek (river?). Very convenient to Delaware Water Gap. But, quite expensive for a campground. This is certainly a supply demand thing. Not a lot of (or any?) campgrounds with full hookups nearby.
Recent upgrades to the bathhouses are very nice. It is obvious that the owners are investing in this campground.
Cable TV has some problems with cables strung across the roads in some places and extra splitters in place. But it worked OK once plugged in.
Sites are OK and pretty level. Mostly grass and some (barely visible) gravel.
Nice activities along the creek with breakfast buffet on Saturday. Definitely a great fishing campground. - rvparkreviews_cc

My wife & I stayed one night while in transit. From major highways access is curvy hilly narrow paved roads. Management staff was helpful upon arrival. They moved us from a back-in to a drive through site without an upcharge. Acorns were falling so they bothered us during the night. Ask for a site not under a tree if you are here during the fall. CATV was good. Not sure about cell or WIFI, since we did not use them. - R V Camper

Great place! Spotless restrooms, good water pressure, good TV signal with antennae, didn't need cable, being by the river was fantastic! Beautiful, just what camping should be like, and the facilities for children were all well maintained, beautifully kept grounds and great staff, would definitely stay there again. - paz

Just here for one night at the end of their season, but we loved it. Pulled through back in their group area. It was great. About 10 to 15 miles off the interstate and you wonder if you are going in the right direction but well worth it. Everything worked and folks were super nice. - WhoDat125

There is minimal cell service and light internet. We wanted to stay hooked to our truck so they put us in the group area where we were all by ourselves along the edge of a large field surrounded by trees which gave our dog a place to run. It is a family run operation and they were helpful and friendly. The pool is nice. It is about 10 miles off of the Interstate along a winding road. We would come back again. - Florida Bob

If your looking for an RV resort, this ain't it. If you want very pleasant owners, big shady sites along with piece and quiet this is it. Some of the amenities are dated but neat and clean. When I pulled in with our 5er and the owner drove me around to available sites in his golf cart, I noticed some low branches and voiced my concerns about a ripped roof. No problem, says owner and I follow a bucket truck , with him in it , trimming back any limbs in question. I would suggest asking for a site in the "woods", it's a beautiful and rustic area with full hookups. - jense

Way over priced for a gravel parking lot. Road into park in awful shape. Cable TV had very little to offer. 50 amp was fine.
BUT my husband had seen on the good Sam website they offered a military discount. Turned out the discount was for $1. Kind of a slap in the face. - JohnCarolP

Great Electric pedestals for 50/30/20a. They look brand new. Sewer good.Water 40@ psi. Didn't use the Wi-Fi. AT&T Cell Phone signal was ok. AT&T Air Card was good but not strong.
Verizon 4G LTE Air Card not as good as AT&T. Cable was good.
Site A13. Sites are arranged in an unusual way but they work. Site was plenty long to park truck on the site. Sites are pretty close on the pull through. Roads in the park are crushed asphalt.
Road to the park is fairly rough but useable. Restrooms clean but didn't use them. Didn't use the Laundry. Long term tenants are in the area but out of the way of the overnight sites. DirecTV Satellite was no problem. No Discounts. Payment with credit card.
This is not as bad of a site as the previous reviews. It is the only one in the area and is good enough for a few nights. The office is in a white build/house. Owners/staff were friendly. I would have no problem staying here for a few days if in the area. - TXBobcat

This is a gravel parking lot right off the interstate. We have stayed here before and it seems as if the owners are doing extensive renovations. It is on the river, but there are no other amenities. - RVerMJ

Stopped in at Rockview Valley overnight on our way to another destination. We arrived around 9pm and were greeted within minutes at the front desk by friendly staff. They did not charge us for our 2 young children due to only staying overnight. They put us in their rally field that had water and electric hookup conveniently placed around the whole field. The field was well maintained with low cut grass, a pavilion, and picnic tables throughout. Upon pulling in a number of campers and staff were very helpful in asking if we needed assistance in setting up. The campground was very quiet and people were very friendly. Although our stay was short I would highly recommend them, and we plan on staying there next season due to their friendly atmosphere and neatly kept park. They do not accept credit cards however, they do take checks. - Jlrineer

Nice little campground for us as an overnight stop while traveling I-84 westbound. We were given a site in the "rally" area which was spacious and quiet. My only concern was that we have a 40' motor home and the entryway to the campground is extremely tight with low hanging branches. Once inside it is also very tight by the office for a turn to the area we were in with more low hanging tree branches. Also, if you are coming from I-84 and choose to go to this campground there is a approximately 135 degree left turn required onto River Road which was at the limit of our turning ability. Owner's son was friendly and helpful. Cable TV included in price. We would return if in the area if we were in a smaller rig, but don't think we would in our current rig. - Bob & Stephanie

I am usually flexible when it comes to different campgrounds. Some great, some not but I usually try to adjust. I have to say that this time I just couldn't get past that unsettled feeling. It was quite empty of any regular campers other then seasonals. I understand October does get slow once the weather gets chillier and the kids in school. It was just unsettling as I found the place rather 'sloppy' for a campground. Sites were lacking numbers and I had trouble finding the water spigot to attach to the camper for it only to be a hose not attached to anything on the ground under the dried leaves and brush. I think it may have been originally screwed onto a board as the other sites had but didn't see anything around. Took a walk as I usually do once we get settled to see 5 empty beer cans and 1 bottle thrown off to the side in different areas. The young girl at the office was very friendly but found everyone else not. None said hello, waved or even gave eye contact of any sort. Did not have a fire ring or picnic table at the site even though we didn't plan on using one because we were leaving in the morning. The campground looked like it would have great potential and maybe its better at the height of the season but I have to say that.I wasn't feeling very comfortable here. They also just accept cash. No credit cards. I wish I have been told that upon making reservations, but I was not. I feel bad giving such a poor review. Wish I could of truthfully done better. - MoeLily

The only good thing I can say about this park is that the staff were friendly and helpful. Other than that to call this place a rv park is a joke. There was NO space or privacy at all. You are parked on top of each other. Some spots you couldn't tell the difference between the parking lot and the camp site. Also , if it was any closer to the highway you would be sitting on the shoulder of the road. I guess if you have children and are into canoeing , rafting , paintball , and arcades the place is ok. But we wouldn't recommend this place and will never go back. - Jim - Carol

This is a convenient stop for an overnight on 209 or off 84. Nothing fancy. This is primarily a base for Kitatinny Canoe tours. There are many tent sites and a small number of pull through RV sites with W/E/C. Water and electric were very good. Cable is digital, so if you only have an analog set, bring a book. (There are no over the air antenna channels). WiFi was very weak, but did manage to check e-mail. The staff are wonderful and welcoming. We would stay here again. - demoon

This is a disgusting place! However, there is just no other place to stay off Route 84 in this area. It’s muddy, buggy, and the bathhouse is filthy. - Safe Trip

Trash strewn at the entrance and along the access road, narrow dirt roads with numerous potholes, the pond was covered with some green sludge, permanent sites' trailers covered in mildew. Staff rarely answered their phone. No wonder there's no TL or Woodalls listing for it. We pulled in, looked around, and left in a big hurry. - Choxnpinz

Just finishing up our second season here as seasonal campers. In season there is some kind of entertainment every weekend. Breakfast every Saturday and Sunday. Friendly and hard working owner and staff. Highly recommend this place. We are very happy here. - VinnyP

My favorite part of this campground is that I have yet to stay in a tight site. Most of the sites I have stayed in are very spacious. Clean bathrooms and showers and a large beautiful pool. They have farmers markets on site and food vendors. Very festive environment on the weekends. WiFi is available to the sites but you have to pay for it. Sites are level, and some are covered in grass which was a nice treat.
The store was often left unmanned and didn't have much inventory, almost an afterthought. Also, not sure I'd call the staff friendly. I'd say they are closer to being a bit on the arrogant side. Nothing negative, just in comparison to other campgrounds the staff was a bit on the cold side. But all in all a nice campground. I would go again. - Riot Pat

We stayed here while helping in a youth camp for the week. The rate shown is for a week-long stay. We pre-paid so once the correct person arrived at the counter, checking in was easy. We were given a site amid several well kept seasonal/long term sites and it was quiet and shady. There was a nice amount of room between the sites, which we liked and we backed up to some woods, which we always like! The site was level and was gravel. All hook-ups were sufficient but there was no cable that we could find. Wi-Fi is not included but there is a subscription site that was very cheap for the week ($13 or so). It worked pretty well considering cell service was hit and miss. Since we were working all week, we didn't really have time to explore the campground but it looked well taken care of. The weekend had themes which seemed fun. They have a small convenience store and restaurant that had a breakfast buffet on the weekends. We did stop for that before heading out and it was very good. Overall one of the nicest places we have stayed. - DeannaS

With the exception of the pool, this park is very rundown and in desperate need of maintenance and repair. Roads and sites are in poor condition. The owners show little interest in the upkeep of the park and would sell out given an interested buyer. We were the only short term visitor. All others were seasonal and apparently long term occupants. - skigoldsboro
Sep 2009 - $23.00
Sorry we didn't know about this web site before we stayed. The pull-through we had was full of puddles and high grass making it impossible to keep your feet dry. A lot of run down trailers in the park and no one was friendly, including the owner. I would avoid this park at all costs. - jimhilz

We DID NOT stay here. We were looking for a place south of the Catskills that had open sites for satellite reception, and was reasonably priced (if you have Passport America, half price Sun-Thu). We just didn't like the looks of the place. It was run down and just looked junky as you pull up. Admittedly the playground looks nice and the pool looked clean. Once you drive past the office, the paved road turns into a rough gravel road that is almost just a two-track. Seems to be a lot of seasonal sites. - Big Rig Full Timer
Jul 2014 - $58.00
Both the positive and negative reviews are correct in some ways. This campground is by a farm and has fishing ponds, small animals like small horses and goats, a nice pool, playground and dog park. The store is small but also sells ice cream and light food. Access is through High Point Park, a good climb off the interstate. The campground has many long-termers and is much like summer camp. The overnight sites are gravel and weeds and close to level. People are very friendly here and there are summer activities....tonight is a square dance. Its not like anywhere else we've stayed. It is in the country, activity (and not tourist attraction) oriented, quiet and spacious. It could be great, but I doubt it is worth the investment of improving the roads/sites to make it so. There are no real over the air TV stations available other than religious shows. We could not get any major network. We'd come back.. Why not, I loved summer camp as a kid. - Solem8s

Under no circumstances should you come to this campground for an overnighter. It is almost 10 miles off the highway down a small windy road. After paying $58 we were sent to the back of the park where there are a few pull-through sites, which are unpaved and even unmowed...a mess. We were surrounded by unoccupied park models and had no view. Fire pits in our section were full of trash. I didn't feel like digging through the plastic bags, etc. to get it ready for a fire. What a waste of money. We will never be back. - RVerMJ
Oct 2013 - $41.00
Yes, I have to agree with other reviews, the views are amazing. However, this park is set up totally for seasonals, which isn't a bad thing it just doesn't cater to the one nighter. They to have some pull through sites and while they are plenty big they are very unlevel with very pronounced depressions next to the sewer inlet. We came here mostly because of the reviews, but I won't bother about coming back. It is a little out of the way and the entrance road is rather steep. I cannot in good conscious recommend this park to other than seasonals. - Jack&Wanda

We stayed here in a class A motorhome. Sites are a spacious 50' wide. Many branches overhanging roadway. Seasonal people (about 10 trailer homes worth), very loud and at times screaming, playing very loud music (great bass tube), all at 1 o'clock in the morning. Very disrespectful. The campground owners were very sweet. They moved us to another site across from the pool apoligizing for the noise. We would not stay there again. - carol

This is a nice park but pricey. It is quite a distance from NYC but we took the commuter rail that was easy to use and about 15 miles away. They did not have any info to speak of about the rail system but referred us to the Internet. They also had very little info about the area or tourist info so plan on doing your research before you get there. The staff was not unfriendly or friendly. Just doing their job. The laundry was clean but small and no frills. We had plenty of room for our 42 ft trailer at the site but did have to be careful on the drive in the park. The upper level was more for bigger rigs and that is where we were. - luckytraveler
Aug 2015 - $75.00
This is a fairly large campground with an odd lay-out. It looks like some additions are underway. As mentioned in other reviews, there is a steep hill you climb after registering; you pass a section with several "permanent" residents, then come to the upper section with more transient sites. The roads are paved, and our site was gravel and very long with no trees so we had no satellite issue. All other utilities worked well. The wifi worked well, but we had to sign in quite often. The campground is functional, but it is not very attractive, and there is not much in the immediate area. We felt it to be pricey relative to other campgrounds. - SMorin

This is a large, reasonably spacious campground. A fair number of permanent residents but nothing too rundown. Some very nice restaurants close. Staff here was not impolite but could benefit from a short lesson in charm school. There are some people who are reluctantly helpful. - LarryJohnston
Sep 2015 - $44.00
Only has five 50amp sites, and they are very nice indeed.
Mostly paved roads, gravel sites, lots of trees. Ideal for
families with kids, a zillion things to keep the kids busy.
Somewhat steep angle turning off Rt 52 in a 40' motorhome,
likely to scrape at the rear. Go another street down to Dairlyland rd,
then Lake House to Martinfeldt and come in the back way.
Very busy in summer, and on weekends. Overall, a very nice
campground and clearly the best in the area. It was perfect
for our 4 day visit to see friends in the area. - macandphyl

Great family campground, the grounds are clean, staff is very friendly from the guy checking parking passes to the guy cleaning up sites. The splash pool is great for little ones. The sites are level but could use more gravel as it rained on us and we had a lot of mud. The playgrounds are great and the kids love the fire truck rides. Fishing is awsome, the lake is well stocked and all you need is some bread and small hooks (we used left over pancakes). There is always something to do, if you get bored its your own fault. The ranger station is at the bottom of a big hill which can be troublesome, but it is well stocked and priced fair. We have been here 2 times a year for 6 years. To show how dedicated the staff is to their "guest" (I say that b\c you feel like one, not like a customer) last year there was a power outage and they gave everybody a free night voucher. If you live in NYC or Long Island I would go to this one, or Gardiner. - ej1332

Skyway is a lovely older campground. With the mega campgrounds around nowadays, I would hesitate to call it a resort though. Nonetheless, we greatly enjoyed our stay here in R1 & R2 with family members. The owners have run Skyway for 45 years and now their children help out. All of them are extremely friendly and helpful and contributed to our enjoyable stay. There were a few negatives. Primarily, they do need to address the access to the campground. The turns are really too sharp for the bigger rigs. There is a lovely area near the front entrance called Strawberry and would be perfect for big rigs but there is still at least one sharp turn to maneuver. The access to this area could be reconfigured and should be really. I believe the owner puts some weekenders up in the back (which is up a decent hill). If they want privacy - that's great, but if they want to use any of the amenities, they've got a hike. Everything is down the hill and most is across a very quiet country road (pool, basketball court, pond). Now on to the positives. We loved this place. Gorgeous sites - most were huge. Wifi was perfect all the time (perhaps they've upgraded since the previous review?), with several transmitters throughout the campground. Roads were graded nicely and we thought they were plenty wide enough. This is the Catskills which means lots of trees! We love that this campground has left so many lovely trees around - it was stunning this weekend with the fall color. But if a branch here and there brushing the top is a concern, ask for the Strawberry or Ridge areas,they're the most open and except for the one inital tight turn, the most accessible. There are quite a few seasonals - although some younger families have left due to the newly remodeled Jellystone nearby. So the crowd right now skews a bit older and quieter. Skyway is the type of campground to relax, do a couple activites they organize and then go find something fun to do on your own. It's not a go-go place. We loved it. With a few improvements, it would be absolutely perfect. We'll definitely be going back. - Gala62

Review for this park dated June 2014 is exactly right on the money in every aspect. Office staff was very friendly. Ridiculous price for a campground with a pool. This park is barely big rig accessible, and not at all big rig friendly. Road to the park is narrow and roads in the park are very stressful to negotiate given the obstacles. We will not return. - Snidely Whiplash
Jun 2014 - $36.00
This campground is in one of the most beautiful areas in NYS. The Catskills are a great place to visit. Unfortunately this campground is in need of a make-over. The sign on the main road is hard to understand on where to "enter" the campground. The office help are wonderful and extremely helpful. The roads are very narrow with low hanging limbs and shrubs that rub the sides of your RV. There are old tree stumps, dumpsters, and large rocks on critical turns that make it even hard to navigate. It is NOT big rig friendly by any stretch of the imagination. About 50% of the campground is occupied by seasonal and about 20% occupied by park models. These sites are messy and owners' cars tend to block the already narrow roads. Wi-Fi is almost nonexistent and the cell service is very poor. The pool and hot tub are beautiful but also across the main road outside the park. Ellenville is not a destination, but it does have adequate shopping. We will not return. - User3766

This is one of the worst campgrounds we have ever stayed in. It is totally run down. If it hadn't taken us so long to get there, we would have kept driving. There are no signs to guide you. The sites are full of old shabby trailers that look as if they have been there for years. The pictures on the web site must have been taken years ago. Management dumped a group of more that 30 noisy teenagers on a bike tour onto the 3 sites around us. The park was almost empty so there were other areas to put them. We left early because of that and were promised a refund that we never got. Exercise room is a joke! It is a locked store room of discarded equipment. Showers had no hot water except in main building by the laundry. Would Never camp there again. No redeeming features to this campground. - Rubrhammer

This is the worst campground I've ever stayed at. We left early and were promised a refund but no one there at the time knew how to give one. Never got the refund. Place is rundown beyond description. Lake is the color of Pepsi and it hadn't been raining. Exercise room is a storeroom for discarded equipment. Seasonals act like they own the place and their campers are so foul looking I couldn't believe the were habitable. June of 2006 visit. - Rubrhammer

The sites are full of old moldy trailers that look as if they have been there for years. There is no longer any television even though they advertise it. We locked our doors, pulled our shades and pulled out in the morning. It didn't even feel safe there. The pictures on the web site must have been taken years ago. - Muffie

The extra fee for out of county residents is a bit much. The electricity kept fluttering and was not dependable to leave on during the night. Maps and any information were not available. We looked into the bath houses and it wasn't a hard decision NOT to use them. They are filthy and smell. We will drive on rather than stay here again. - Arizona Traveler

When we stayed again at this park last year, we were surprised to see the nightly rate had gone, in a year, from $20 to $35 for an electric site. The county decided to charge non-residents a $10 premium to stay in the park. Since we were set up before the ranger came by to collect, we paid for one night. We will not be staying again at this campground as the fee is simply not worth it. - Jay Rutherford
Jun 2010 - $20.00
We stayed one night at this county-owned park on our way to New England. There was no one at the "office" so we picked our site and were visited later by a ranger to collect the fee, which included electrical service. Most of the sites did not appear too level. The provided map showed which sites accommodated what size rig and whether it had electrical service. Sites were generally spacious, located on a heavily wooded hill. Access for big rigs might be tight at many sites; the road, while paved, is narrow and winding. We think this park would be good for an overnight stop for people traveling on I-84 or NY 17. Fees on weekends are $5 more per night. Reservations are only accepted for the big weekends: Memorial Day, Labor Day, and July 4 when it falls on a 3 day weekend. Possession or consumption of alcohol is prohibited in the park; this message appears repeatedly on every building and in all printed materials. We would use this park as a stopover again when in the area. - Jay Rutherford

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

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

The wife and I spent the weekend here and really fell in love with it. We chose a back in site along a very active stream and the sound of the stream was like music to my ears. Our 1 year old Springer just loved it as well. It's a fairly large park with very generous lots, which is a bit uncommon in NJ. The lots are mostly wooded and shaded so satellite reception may be an issue, the cable TV included about a dozen or so stations so it was adequate for our purpose. The Wi-Fi was only available near the office which was a good thing in that it kept me off the computer for the most part but if you need it, it can be an issue. The loop from our lot all the way around the park was over a mile and perfect for a nice morning and afternoon walk with the dog. Between the walks and the playing in the stream our puppy has been sleeping for the last few hours! At $32.00 for the night for a 30 amp site with water and cable but no sewer, and $8.00 for over night guests was acceptable for what they offer in peace and quiet. We booked another weekend at the end of May and again in August so I'll see how it is during the "on" season. If anyone was looking for a nice campground in the area you might want to give them a try. - Don & Cindy

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

This is a very large campground with many seasonal campers that need some care. The interior gravel roads are poor with many pot holes. The electric was good, but the water was on a boil advisory. The few sites for the traveling persons are very wooded and hard to back into, too many trees and roads very narrow. There is no over the air TV, no cable TV, and satellite is difficult to set up. We would not camp here again. - corky506

Rate is Coast to Coast. This is a resident-owned "community", and visitors (like us) are not allowed access to most of the amenities. C2C spaces are scattered among the permanent residences. Most of the permanent structures are older trailers, with a scattering of park models. Doesn't look like any have ever been washed. Spaces are close together. Heavily wooded, very hard to get satellite signals. It's a Verizon "extended service" zone. It is convenient for visiting the northeast Poconos area. Laundry requires tokens instead of cash. We wound up here by failing to reserve soon enough elsewhere for the July 4th holiday weekend. Park staff is not geared to supporting non-residents, and keys to get into things like the laundry are reluctantly doled out. We probably won't be in this area again, but if we are we'll try to find someplace else to park. - Fulltiming Old Guy

We were there as Coast to Coast members, but this is a primarily permanent resort community (huge) for seasonal residents. Out site was way in the back and there was no available restrooms. We were in the midst of permanent trailers. O.K. for staying and fishing, but not convenient for overnight or temporary stays. - joyces

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

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

This was an overnight stop on our way to New England. The sites for 50 amp are in the back on a hill. The 50 amp sites are about 70% seasonal. It took a little maneuvering to get it but, was OK.

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

They charge extra for everything, internet, cable, 50 amps. Our site did not have sewage. I would not stay here again. - Glendaj

We were at this park over July 4th weekend and it was way overbooked. It is an old park located in a valley where campfire smoke was irritating unless you don't mind breathing constant smoke. It was a bit noisy because of the number of people and we were close to the office area. There is only one way in and out over a wooden bridge so there is a lot of traffic. We used the Adult Center bathrooms, which ran out of paper and were not cleaned very well. However, in its day I'm sure this was a beautiful resort. There are lots of activities planned and plenty for kids to do if you want to give them money for the arcade and ice cream. It had a little grill open so you could eat at the park. There are many seasonal campers, most of them keep their own sites pretty and neat. - dldw1954

This was our 2nd stay here. We loved our first stay and this was good, just not as good. Did not seem as friendly as it was 4 years ago. The campground was quiet for the most part and enjoyable. The pool closed after Labor Day which was too bad as it was still hot. They offer bus tours of NYC if there is enough interest but we decided to drive down ourself. It was about 70 miles and we paid $25 to park because we are oversize. Not a bad trip. Our site was good, long but slightly skinny but had crushed stone which kept things clean when it rained. One reason we like it here is is brings us over the Hudson on 84 which is easiest for us. We will return at some point I am sure. - Happy Camper X2

Stayed at this campground for 2 days while visiting friends and touring West Point. Campground is very nice. Pretty quiet, except when large groups having gatherings. However, the gatherings didn't bother us as they were over in the early evening. You can also hear firing ranges in the distance up until about 10 pm. However, having served in the Army for over 26 years, we were use to hearing firing on nearby ranges and it didn't bother us.\ at all. We had sort of missed the noise from the past. The camp staff were very friendly and helpful. Our site (C-9) was close to others but not a problem. The restroom was close to us which we did use. It was very clean. We would stay here during another visit to this area. We camped in a class C motorhome. - Tiger6

We stayed here for a weekend in July so we could tour West Point. The positives about the campground are that it's a very pretty facility that surrounds a large pond. The bathrooms were fairly modern and clean, the staff was friendly, and the sites were roomy. It was just a few minutes from West Point so it was perfect for our purposes. Unfortunately, as much as we liked the positives, the negatives were also substantial. First off, the campground is right next to several artillery ranges. We heard gunfire and heavy artillery almost non-stop from 7 AM until late in the evening (at least 10:30 some nights). Although we thought it was rather funny and part of the ambiance, if you have kids that are light sleepers or dogs afraid of fireworks or thunder, rethink coming here. Also, we were at a site at the back side of the pond which was very tight to park in. We had to make a 90 degree turn into a driveway with a fence on each side, and a sheer drop down the side of a hill on the other side of the road. Also, the bathrooms were a very long walk down a narrow road for the few sites that were past it. The dump station was near the bathrooms and the road around the campground is one-way, so if you are in the sites past it, you need to actually leave the campground and come back in to use the dump station on the way out (and back in to it!). Next, we thought we'd be fine using our own facilities for the weekend since the web site states that they have honey wagon service for $5. When we showed up, however, we were told that it was actually $8, and only offered on Fridays and Mondays. Doesn't do weekenders a lot of good. Lastly, as others have mentioned, the road into the campground is very steep and very winding. - GoldenGirl

We really enjoyed our overnight here. Gorgeous tree sheltered sites. Quiet. Warned about bears but didn't see any, that would've been fun. Showers were individual rooms with decent hot water. Very peaceful. Our site was flat and fairly private. Water and electric but no sewer which was fine for a night. Happy to stay again. Would be beautiful in Autumn. - kiwitravelers

We stayed in the RV campground as opposed to the tent site campground.
Heavily wooded area with lots of trails. Downside was lots of bugs (gypsy moth caterpillars and millipedes) up in the trees munching the leaves and dropping a LOT of stuff all over the site and RV etc.
Electric and water hookups only with a dump station. The sites all have asphalt driveways. Water hose reels are provided between sites so you can pull them about 60 feet (avg) over to your site.
About the water...
Bring bottled water with you! There is an issue here with the potable water. Abnormally high levels of nitrates and they have signs posted everywhere about not giving it to babies.
We had no problem with radio reception but there's no Wi-Fi.
The RV sites have no fire rings and no fires are allowed. This was a little disappointing but not a deal killer for us. There is a separate tent camping site that DOES have fire rings.
A black bear did wander pretty close to our site but ran away when our fearless Jack Russell terrier barked at it. Just the same, we were glad to be in a trailer and not a tent at night.
There are rangers that come around every hour or so.
Small issues aside, this is still a GREAT place to stay if you're in the area and need a budget-friendly and spacious site to stay in. - kalm_in_nj

This heavily wooded park has paved interior roads and sites but can be difficult for big rigs. Many sites are short or not level, roads are narrow and trees crowd both roads and sites. Electric was good, water is awkwardly placed and requires long hoses at most sites. The park is very quiet and sites offer good privacy. AT&T phone and data service was good. - never settled

If you are wondering why you cannot find any reviews on this "worst campground" in the USA, read on. This was our first time in the New Jersey area. Since we live out of state, we searched for hours online to find an rv park within reasonable proximity to the New York City area. We did a Google search and found Sun Air Campground. We phoned the owner to ask if he could accommodate a large motorhome, if it was easy to get to New York City by mass transit and what amenities they had. I was led to believe that everything was fine; no sewer, but good electric and water hookups, a dump station and fishing just steps away with a nice view of the lake. We believed we would be staying in a nice country setting with good access and modern amenities. So here is what we saw upon arriving in town. Without a GPS we never would have found this place. No directions were given on the website. When we turned onto Cozy Lake Rd, it was a very narrow road in a residential neighborhood with low overhanging trees. There were no signs along the road to provide direction until we finally came upon a small weathered sign nailed to a tree by a driveway. This was our first clue. The driveway entrance was rutted and rocky with pot holes, heavily wooded and very narrow. We pulled into a turn around area and straight ahead was a rundown modular residence with a little sign "Office" above the door. I knocked on the door (9:15 am) - no answer. My wife and I walked down the road into the campground only to be met by a vicious barking boxer, luckily on a chain in front of what looked to be a permanent trailer residence. The available sites were uneven, difficult to get into and covered in leaves and tree limbs. All occupied spots looked like permanent residents. We immediately decided this campground would not even rate a negative one star rating. There is a reason why there are no photos of the campground on the website. Cut-out areas in a heavily wooded area does not make a decent rv campground. We knew we were taking a chance on this place with so little information online, but we thought we'd check it out. Couldn't see any satellite images on Google maps because the area is so overgrown and the buildings are trashy and in horrible shape. In our 20+ years of motorhome travels, this is truly the worst place we have ever seen. Needless to say we drove on down the road. - cal corvette

Family owned, people are nice. Gravel roads that are not maintained, gravel sites, ours was not level even with the use of leveling blocks. We parked by the lake, which was full of algae. There had been a boat dock at one time, now the area is roped off with "do not enter" signs. There is only one bath house for showers that is in very poor condition. You have to pay to use the shower. There is another bathroom that is in even worse condition. Neither were clean. There is a dump station, but no sewer hook up. The majority of the sites are seasonal renters in run down trailers. This place only takes cash. - esta34950

Second time here and was better than the first. Stayed at Pickerel Point Campground with full hookups. Bathrooms and showers were spotless and cleaned daily. No AT&T reception in the area, picked up a few OTA television channels and radio reception was fine. Nice beach at the point with shallow water for smaller children. power and water pressure were fine. Roads are paved and the sites are a mix of gravel and grass. A little off kilter but just used one set of levelers and all was well. Plenty of room on the site for the kids to play. Roads are very busy with walkers, runners and bikes. - acenorm

A beautiful state park right on the lake, great water views throughout. Cleanest bathrooms we've seen...ever! The road was a bit rough but paved, just take it slow as there are typically walkers or bikers. Pickerel Point had a nice beach and swimming area with rental canoes and kayaks.

We have camped at many state parks, in multiple states, and rank this at the very top. The facilities are well maintained, recreational opportunities abound, the hiking trails are abundant, scenic and well marked, there is a high level of security, and the park is both child-friendly and pet-friendly. We stayed in a cabin and, while the cabin is designated as being "rustic," it included a modern stove and refrigerator, a dining table with seating for 6, an outdoor covered porch, a fireplace, and a modern, private bathroom and shower. We hope to visit again many times. - TentingTimesTwo

This park was truly "in the wild!" Lots of trees and very unkempt grounds. They did have a small pool. Every time we went outside, we had to watch for snakes, which were plentiful.

We have returned for the summer this year to find even more improvements to SO-HI. We just love the rustic wilderness setting and the friendly atmosphere. The tranquil shaded sites give protection from the summer heat and make it possible to spend lots of time outside. Isn't that what camping is all about? The rates are very reasonable when compared to other campgrounds in the Catskills and the amenities are more than adequate.
I highly recommend this campground. It is family friendly and has plenty to do for those who want to be active and lots of laid back for those who want to be a camper potato!

Timothy Lake Campground is composed of two different areas. I stayed in the North Campground. I used the campground over Memorial weekend. There are 2 bath houses. One (near us) was out of order with no signs posted. We figured it was out of order when there was no water in the toilets, debris all over the sinks and tile and fixtures falling in the showers. When we used the other bath house, there was no water pressure. We ended up doing a sponge bath and just didn't wash our hair. We went to use the indoor pool first thing in the morning and found debris floating in it. We checked the pool bathrooms and my son discovered all the urinals were taken down and both toilets were clogged. Sites have some slope to them, but none of them would be difficult to level. My site had the fire ring on the wrong side and after 2 days of several requests, they never moved it. When we arrived we discovered the putt putt golf was closed as was the boats. If we were only staying one night, used our own shower and never left our trailer I would say the campground is a 4 instead of a 3. I recommend avoiding the campground. - Meenan Monsters

We had an excellent site by the restrooms. The Activity Center was inside the office/store area, so was inaccessible after hours, which is when we wanted to watch TV.

Restrooms were cleaned regularly but not very thoroughly. - dldw1954

Very nice campground, great staff, nice sites but some could be wider, tree trimming would be nice to help a lot of sites. All hook ups worked great, place very clean, looks like rules enforced. One of the better TT Outdoor World parks I have been to, must be a popular one. No tv but cable available ($). Some sites out in the open good for folks needing satellite viewing, on a clear night the view of the stars was wonderful. Maybe this staff should give lessons to the other parks in the TT system on how to run a campground, they do a wonderful job here, will return. - DBLR

This is a very small campground taken over by a new owner with ambitious plans. He also recently purchased waterfront property (Lake Mocatek) to expand the 45 sites to 100+. The very friendly owner greeted us as we entered the campground and told us to drive around and pick an open site. He very patiently and with humor put up with me changing my mind not once but several times, even after I had him cut down a limb in a site that we ended up not using. All this before we even settled the bill. The campground was friendly and it was quiet. During this Memorial Weekend, we saw the owner working hard on several different projects. We used this campground as a base to visit a relative and we noted other campers using it as a base as they used the local recreational facilities (Lake Wallenpaupack). There were also seasonal campers here. We look forward to returning to this campground to witness its growth and changes and we wish the owner success in this endeavor. - Tulirose

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.

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

We just returned from a four day weekend at Roscoe Campsites and I wish I could have spent a week. This is an old school (but really clean) campground. This is not a campground that is going to babysit your children. No game room, no Sunday ceramics, etc. If your children like to fish, tube, or swim in the cleanest river holes, then they will love it. There is also a playground, hiking trails, and plenty of places to ride their bikes. This is heavily populated with Fly fisherman, so please respect them when they are on the water during fly hatches. Most sites are shaded but there are a few down below that will require an awning and/or a 10 x 10 dining tent. (We were in these and we did fine). If you get hot, and the river is low, just put a chair in the water, or head up to the rock beach. The owner and his staff did everything they could to make us feel at home. What a "standup guy" this owner is! We had three families: kids ages ranged from 10 to 15, and everyone had fun. We had a 31' Travel trailer, a 39" 5th wheel, and our other friend rented one of the newer trailers onsite (a fairly new and spotless Cougar.) There is a large bathroom and shower house which was spotless. Plenty of firewood onsite, and a pretty well stocked general store with ice for sale. They also have tube rentals if needed. This is a fisherman’s heaven. If you like to fish, then stop in town for the most knowledgeable fly fisherman by far. Great fly shops, general store, and beer wine, etc., all available. There is no sewer hookups on the riverfront sites because if it were to flood, it would not be good for the river. Water and electric worked fine, and a honey truck to pump if needed. As a dog owner myself, my only complaint would be to have a leash law for the dogs. WiFi would be great as well, but I would like to see that at every campground. That would probably kill the rustic feel I suppose. We are pretty particular where we camp, and I can tell you we have already booked for next year. We are hoping to sneak back in August. We can’t wait to go back. - otismyman263

We dry camped 20 feet from the river. Beautiful location. Very few amenities. Only the most rugged RVs attempt this. On the West side, there are small roads with potholes. Mostly paved through campground. On the East side, rugged large stones and difficult to maneuver, but easier access by highway 151. Dogs need vaccination records. Bears in the area. Beautiful covered bridge (no autos) and great trout fishing. If your rig can take it, go for it. - tabber386

This is my favorite Poconos campground by far. It's a little more expensive . But, we have stayed in more expensive parks that simply do not compare to Otter Lake. Wooded with good size lots. There is a lot to do here and the lake is beautiful.
Open year round and they keep the water on a long as the weather holds. The water was on 2nd weekend of November. Call ahead and be prepared.
Our neighbors were first time winter campers, planning to snowmobile. Reportedly there are trails nearby.
Very clean restrooms and showers.
Backing your camper into a spot can be tricky, with so many trees and large buried boulders about. Ask the front desk what is the best direction to approach your site for easier maneuvering.
Sites are level with small gravel. There are seasonals. All appear well kept and Otter Lake does not feel like a trailer park. It feels like the resort campground that it is supposed to be.
We didn't use it, but the heated indoor pool (open year-round) looks really nice.
There is actually cell phone service (2 bars-Verizon LTE) and their WiFi is free and is the best that we have experienced. It just works without any annoying passwords or pop-ups. - rvparkreviews_cc

It is a lovely park with great facilities. However, most sites we have stayed on over the years allowed 4 people per site in the cost. They charge for over 2 people which I could not find on their website. We also had a very bad experience with the sewer. When we arrived we heard a camper complain that their tank was full. We didn't think much of it until the 3rd day of our 5 day stay. We noticed a bad odor when we used the water. On the 4th day we noticed that water was "bubbling up" under the camper whenever we ran the water, so my husband took the cap off the sewer and it was clear to the top. We left a day early. I stopped at the office on the way out and told them of the issue and we were offered another site, but by that point our rug and everything we had stored under the camper was covered in sewer water and we just wanted to get home and clean everything. Re-setting back up was not an attractive alternative. We were never offered any sort of refund. - almar4evr

The road in to this campground is narrow, windy, and straight up for 7 miles. I honestly didn't think we were going to make it. There is no shoulder so we couldn't even pull over to disconnect the car or let all of the vehicles behind us pass. When we checked in, I commented to the staff that they should tell people when they are booking motorhome sites that the road in is not motorhome friendly. I was informed that there was a better route than what comes up on GPS. We traveled that road for the few days we were there and it was much better. Why wouldn't you alert people to this either on the website or when someone books a site. Lesson learned though - I will always ask when booking a site at any campground if there are any travel concerns or GPS warnings. Once there, we had trouble getting to our site because of unattended children on bikes purposely riding in front of us and even leaving a bike in the middle of the road. This is a nice campground with large sites, but could use some updating. If we decide to go back to the area, I think we will choose a different campground. - Bonnie66

Over-run by seasonals who keep their sites littered with trash. 15 amp service. They don't allow tote tanks - but will charge $8 for their dumping service. Bathroom garbage had something dying in it - was never emptied during our week-long stay. Young couple took over from father, office was never open during the week. Roscoe NY is adorable - this place is a dump. - flyingcloud

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

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

The owners and family were polite and helpful. We had a site that offered a beautiful view of the Delaware river, also the site was huge (60'x100') and it was well kept grass. If you have children they offer canoe and tubing rentals other than that there are no arcades or anything like that so it makes the campground peaceful and quiet, which is the way we like it. We don't and won't use the public bath house anywhere so we can't offer a opinion on them. It is very pet friendly, meaning you don't have to keep your pet on a leash which I liked (I have 2 English setters) but it can be frustrating when someone else's dog starts marking on your chairs or cooler. The last 6 or so miles before you get there can be tricky , tight roads and low trees but if you take your time we believe it is definitely worth it. - Jim - Carol

Simple pull-in for your Rig. Bathrooms are horrible - I was in a site closest to the bath house and that is what ruined our stay. Great for on the river - campground also runs canoeing and tubing business for the river - that was great. Most of the RV sites are seasonal. No sewer unless you are seasonal. Limited RV sites so make a reservation before going. A lot of tent campers with a lot of traffic on one road in and out of campground. No cell service and no TV via either cable or antennae. People nice enough, didn't really interact after checking in. No playground, no pool, nothing but the river. If you want that and tubing great. Just use your own shower! - Stuck in New jersey

Campground is very difficult to reach. Office staff was so, so friendly. Lots of rules. Site was level. Rate was high even with KOA discount for what was available. Looked to be mostly seasonals which occupied the shady sites. Would not consider this campground to be one that I would stop at in the future. It is not close to major highways so you might just want to pass this one up if it's not your destination. - Jackson W

This is now the Honesdale/Poconos KOA. We did not like this park at all and would never stay here again. We paid the most expensive rate we've ever paid for a KOA cabin, and it was little more than a plywood shed that was old, dirty, and smelled. With a padlock on the door to boot. The people who checked us in were friendly, and they are a new KOA campground, but it doesn't meet the standards I've come to expect from that brand name. Gravel roads and sites, the pond is stagnant water, and the pool itself was dirty and filled with dead insects. - McNamara's Band

The park address is Honesdale but it is really in the middle of nowhere about a 10-15 minute drive from Honesdale. If you want to go, see and do things in the area, then you will be driving a lot. We went to Lake Wallenpaupack during the day and spent a lot of time in the car. The staff was very friendly and so were the seasonals. It was a quiet campground. We used the pool and played miniature golf. We stayed in site 35 and it was a tight fit getting the trailers in and out due to other's cars. We were waken in the night and asked to move our car so a Class B could back in to the site diagonal to us. Because of the distance and the musical cars to get others in and out we wouldn't stay here again. - smdc

I read some of the reviews and just had to comment. This campground is so beautiful! We have been there many times. There are four restrooms throughout the grounds, two of them with shower facilities, and they are all kept spotless. The staff is super kind and really makes you feel welcomed. Super family friendly campground. My kids beg to go back every year. They have 20 amp and 30 amp sites you just have to ask. The state hiking trails are easy to get to if you take the time to ask for directions from the friendly staff and don't just wander off in the woods. LOL There is canoe rentals , fishing tours and lessons and tubing in the river near by. The pool isn't huge but very clean. They have activities every weekend and hayrides. The camp store was open from 9am till 9pm when we camped there. I'm sure the hours may vary if you are there during off season but the staff always asks if you need anything when you check in even after hours. We love this place. I don't mind the seasonal campers it makes the camp homey and warm. We felt safe and welcomed. I would camp here with my kids even if my husband couldn't come. It's just a warm and friendly place. - campsitegang

What I loved most about this place is, its a campground and not an RV parking lot. Its an older campground that has been family operated for over 40 years. Its very welcoming with lots of character.. The grounds are beautiful.. The people very friendly.. I loved camping along the stream.. The restrooms were older buildings but kept spotless.. Bravo to the staff.. Every year we go back and it seems they are constantly improving the grounds. I'll be back Russell Brook !!! - camper2005

Normally, I don't post reviews but saw this one and had to comment. The previous post is totally off. The camp store was always open when I was there. The staff was so nice and helpful, made you feel welcomed. The bathrooms where older buildings but kept spotless!!! So were the grounds and the pool. There were a variety of beautiful campsites for tenters, pop up and trailers. We will definitely go back. It beautiful there. To the previous poster maybe you should sell your camper and start doing the hotel thing... - campsitegang

We traveled here once again for Labor Day Weekend. The staff was helpful, getting us to our site in a timely manner. Be forewarned before you travel here, once off the main road, the backroads to the campgrounds are narrow and tricky to maneuver. Our site was great, large and quiet, giving us the feeling of being isolated from the rest of the area. The one negative is there is a limited sewer system and we were not able to hook up, having to get the honey wagon to pull up each day. The campgrounds were crowded as they always are this time of year, and there were lines at the washrooms not having enough to accommodate the crowd they had on hand. We were close to the activities we had planned, the Garlic Festival and the river so this was an ideal location. I would stay here again as this is still a better campground than a couple others we stayed at in the area. We camped at Delaware Water Gap / Pocono Mountain KOA for 3 nights in a Travel Trailer. - alkurta

For us this was a stopover on our way from Virginia to New Hampshire. It was a good, although pricey, overnight stop. It was very quiet and very convenient to the highway. The staff was friendly and helpful. Our pull-through site was easy enter and exit, also level. Fuel, shopping, and restaurants are close by. We would definitely stay here again. I suspect it would be quite busy on the weekends as there is a lot to do in this area. - SchnoodleCamp

Very clean park. Camped in a 35' Class A towing a car on a dolly, and still had plenty of room in front in my pull through site. I needed a few blocks under the front jacks to level. All sites are gravel, although some had as much grass as gravel. WiFi was fine, all hookups were clean and easy to get to. The pool looked very clean. The dog run was also clean with a few agility obstacles to play with. Very nice, large play area for the kids, and a well kept miniature golf course ($). The cabins appeared to be renovated and/or new. Office staff, hosts and volunteers were all friendly and helpful. On the minus side, quiet hours weren't enforced very well. We will stay here again. - DebDon

Very out of the way campground, which suited us just fine. Our site was between 2 seasonal sites and was very quiet. When we first arrived we needed to clear out all the leaves in the site and there was garbage in the fire ring. The lake was nice and was able to do some fishing. They have available internet which came in handy for us. We had a hillside site and was ideal for us. If you want sun, try a lakeside site. - klbmn

This is our favorite campground in Pennsylvania. The owners make the effort to maintain the facilities to a high standard. The pool is one of the cleanest pools that I have ever seen. The owner spends almost an hour every morning cleaning the pool. The Lake front sites are to die for. The other sites are mostly pretty roomy. The staff goes the extra mile to make your stay enjoyable. For instance the owner's son saw me walking to the dumpster and he stopped and offered to take my trash to the dumpster. The campground sits at a high elevation and is quite cool. We have run the heat in August during the night. We have never had a problem with the electricity even with the air on. I have seen people have trouble trying to use 50 amp adapters on the 30 amp hook ups. The best seasonals are the friendliest group i have run into. I am normally turned off by parks that have a lot of seasonals. This place is the exception. The owner seems to not have a problem with kicking out problem campers. This is important in a campground with a lot of seasonal sites. It is a long drive into town (about 25 minutes). This is either an asset or a liability depending on your needs and attitude. - AWMIII

First, let me say this is a beautiful campground, especially if you camp on the lake sites. This used to be a nice campground where we camped at on holidays. But the new owners should not be in the campground business. The sites have not be leveled in a couple of years. There is no escort to your site to make sure you can get in (some of them are hard to get in to). There used to be garbage pickup and wood delivery, but not anymore. You have to do that on your own. There are creepy looking staff members working there now. Not to mention if you have a difference of opinion with the owner, she throws you out. I've seen good people thrown out for stupid things...both weekenders and seasonals alike. For the most part the seasonal campers are nice people, but when we camped there last, a lot of them were fed up and not going to return. There are people up at night making noise and no one comes around to check on things. There is no security either. If you want a party campground with no rule enforcement, this is your place. - happycamper08

This is a mostly seasonal CG in a beautiful setting. The sites for travelers are a bit odd; ours was called a pull-through but it was really a pull-in since there was no way we could have continued to drive through. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Our biggest issue with the place is that the roads accessing it for the last mile or two are very narrow and have lots of overhanging trees. When leaving, I brushed a tree that knocked off my awning wind sensor which made this an expensive overnight stop. There aren't many CGs in this part of PA along the I-84 route but this is not exactly what you'd call easy on/easy off for an overnight stay. If you do stay here, definitely call for directions. Your GPS may put you on roads that are unsuitable for your RV. Coming from the north-west on US6 is definitely an easier way to get here than coming from the east and south on US6. - docj

Mixed bag on this place. Way too expensive for an overnight or two. The lake (with good fishing) is beautiful and our lakeside campsite was stunning. But our 30-amp site was far from level. Bring quarters for the showers - 25 cents per 5 minutes. The clerk in office said the charge was "to keep people from wasting water." Lots of seasonal campers in nice rigs. We stayed on a Saturday night. A DJ played in the "barn" until 11 p.m., and it sounded like a car with a boom box was nearby - maybe fun for some guests, but for those looking for peace and quiet, annoying. This might be a wonderful place to spend a month or season and probably a great place to bring kids because the pool and the beach are super nice with water craft rentals, too. But for short stay without kids, not a good bang for the buck. - Charles3

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

Shaded park with tight spaces. Lots of trees which makes maneuvering through campground tricky. Like most northern campground we've been to, it's pack em and stack em. The better sites have long stay campers. Sites are not level. Could be a nicer park if they got rid of every other site. - southernsky

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

We rented one of their trailers. It was falling apart, dirty and full of bugs. I had to have them come clean it again and I still used a whole jar of lysol. I could not bring any food in because black ants were everywhere. The water was very smelly. The toilets didn't work well and we had to clean up overflows and when we called them they just gave us a plunger. We wanted our money back because the whole place is so run down with trailers just left to rot away. They advertise a canopy in the pool area and it is a tarp thrown over metal poles. The pool could have used a coat of paint. The owners are very nasty. I would never go back and would not recommend it to anyone. - MHelm

Fla-Net is a campground to avoid. GPS location is incorrect - it took us to a dead-end road. So we had to unhitch our towed vehicle to get turned around. The manager said they keep meaning to correct that. The campground was a mix of hills and valleys. It was the most uneven campground I've ever seen. The first spot they sent me to was way too narrow with overhanging trees that scraped my roof. After complaining they gave me the adjacent site. Thankfully I had a good surge protector. It caught the fact that the electric had no "ground" and the polarity was reversed. This could have fried my camper's electrical system. Had to add an extender to my electric cable to hook up to the next site over. This place is a wreck! - Vince & Charlette

Extremely tight spots. Some tough terrain to drive through to get to park and even more to get to your spot. The operator is nice enough and fairly helpful and provides a 10% discount just for asking while not officially part of a discount program.
The amenities seem quite nice though we didn't have an opportunity to use them. It seems popular as it was pretty full.
30A with water was $38/night. 30A with water and sewer was $43/night. 50A with water and sewer was $48, which we paid $43, discounted. In my opinion a little steep for such a cramped, fairly basic space. $10 less across the board and I'd up my rating for value. - Outlaw Pilots

A transition is about. I rolled through here last summer and found a lot of the same things others were complaining about. But the one brother seems to be working vigilantly to bring the park up to par. He may not be there just yet, but it is coming along. Recently, a load of road millings were delivered to help shore up the roads, there are 2 new washer machines, the playground and pool areas are painted and improved, the grass is cut on a regular basis and it looks like a majority of the long-term worker residents have left. Perhaps half a dozen are left. The problem I have is the lack of enforcement with the leash law/rule. The long-termers come home from work and drink beer while their dogs are running around until 10 at night - weekends are worse. If you are a responsible dog owner, you constantly have fend off the loose ones. The other thing is the Internet. It took a while for someone to come out and kick the Wi-Fi unit in the rear end to get it to work. I'll be here next year - scarpacci

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

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 was an average park that could use some updating. Staff was friendly and helpful. The setting in the woods was nice and peaceful and management enforces quiet hours which we like to see. For the hiker, there are many opportunities. Bathrooms and showers are adequate but dated and cleanliness varied from day to day. It is a long walk to the showers and flush toilets from parts of the campground. There are portable toilets scattered about but this campground really needs at least two additional modern bathhouses on the back side for its size. Very few sites are suitable for larger rigs and access roads are tight. This campground is also expensive for what it is and there are lots of add-on costs. With a little updating and some improvements this could be a first class location (and worth the higher cost) but as it stands now its just average....not great....not bad. The main attraction here is the wolf preserve. - jrwalkerpa1

We were only here for one night, and we came in with a transmission stuck in second gear! The women at the office were kind enough to let us use their landline phone to call a repair facility in Scranton (since our signal strength was not good). We were in a pull-through site, which was perfect, as we got going first thing the next day.
One comment we would make about the road to the property...it is very narrow in parts, so use care. - dbcordello

After driving on the Interstate for many hours, we were looking for a quiet place to spend the night. There is not much to choose from in this area. Clayton Park has great reviews and we decided it would be worth the extra miles to drive there off of the Interstate. You will drive along a narrow 2 lane country road with a few twists and turns. But no problem for our 45 ft motorhome and trailer. Just go slow, take it easy and enjoy the views. Clayton Park is right on Lake Ariel and has a nice waterfront. However, most of the waterfront is occupied by seasonal renters. Very obvious when you see attached decks and tool sheds. But, all of those campers and 5th wheelers are well kept and the sites and surrounding areas are very clean. In fact, they were in the midst of planting additional trees while we were there. If you want a quiet place away from the hustle and bustle of city live, this is the place to stay at. They rent kayaks here and it appears to be a good place for fishing. Beware, though, they accept cash or checks, only! This is a nice park with friendly people. Highly recommended. We had a pull-through site. - Olivia Las Vegas

This is a great getaway for smaller rigs and park models. It rates lower as a big rig stopping spot. There are only a couple of sites that are level, big enough for a 40-foot RV, and have full hookups. The campground is situated on a lovely spot in the Poconos off the beaten path. Grocery stores and other amenities are about 10 miles away. There is no WiFi.
On the plus side the sky is wide open for satellite reception and there is good cell phone access. The owners are very friendly and the permanent campers seem like a pleasant group of people. We had a nice quiet few days with the campground to ourselves. The Memorial Day weekend brought the regulars out and it was different but still a nice place with a nice view. - seeyajohn

Nice quiet park in the mountains of North East Pa. Easy to get to, 6 miles from major highway with good interior roads. Owners live on premise and are eager to please. Power is excellent and water is also. Has very large sites, with a spectacular view of the distant mountains. We will be going back. - NEEP46

Sites are on grass with gravel. FHU, 30 amp, back in & shaded. No cable but TV on antenna & we got satellite. Picnic Table. Pool closed. Beach swimming. No WiFi. Permanent sites & day workers. But for the most part neat. Good Verizon signal. No dog run but plenty of places to walk. Playground. - jcpjane

This is a great place to stay in an RV to visit NYC. The campground is quiet and clean. We did not swim, but it said you can only swim while lifeguards are on duty and we never saw them on duty.
The only draw back is the walk to the train station. It is a 1 1/2 mile walk mainly through the park to the train station which doesn't seem too bad except it was July and very hot and humid. Especially after walking in NYC all day it was a hard walk home. If we go back I would probably call a cab to take us from the station to the campground.
When you ride the train into NYC it is about 45 min and takes you into Grand Central Station. It is a great alternative to driving!
The campground has full hookups, but no wifi or cable. Not an issue when you're gone all day. We did get many channels over the air using our antenna. Overall a great, quiet place to stay while visiting NYC. - Amanda C

A hidden gem of a campground, right next to the MetroNorth train
line into New York City. Spacious sites, gravel and grass, lots of
trees, and paved roads
Only 30 AMP electric in all sites. Right on the Hudson River,
beach and picnic grounds nearby to the campground. The park is
City Owned, well run and well maintained. - macandphyl

We have experienced NY state parks that are well set up and well run. This is not one of them. The sites are strewn all over a hill side with cross roads that are steep and barely wide enough for a vehicle. Each site is identified with a number, but there is no indication at each "road" what sites are along that "road." Once the office closes around 6:00 pm, according to the signs posted, there is no one on site overnight. Of course, there are no hookups whatsoever. The place was OK for two mid-week overnights of dry-camping while exploring the area, but there's not much to recommend the place. The trash barrel at my site was packed full for two nights. The $5 surcharge for non-residents plus the $2.50 "transaction fee" (for showing up?) is the frosting on a lousy cake. I don't think I'd stay there again. - Jay Rutherford

The campground is only five miles north of Hyde Park, where the FDR and Vanderbilt National Historic Site is located on beautiful route 9. So we stayed two nights without hookups near the Hudson River. The sites are not level but you can find some that will take RVs under 30 feet. There are bathrooms with showers but we arrived on Memorial Day and they were dirty and stayed that way for our two day stay. The host site was not filled and I think maybe the hosts are responsible for the cleaning? Nice hiking trails high up along the Hudson River going to the Marina and north of the park. Cottages are available for rent. This is a big complex of over 1,000 acres. In the park there are picnic areas, trails, bridle paths, fishing, two 9 hole golf courses, cross country skiing, sledding hills, snowmobiling and the Mills Mansion. - gsnakehill

This campground did not meet our expectations. We pulled into the very narrow entrance road a 2 p.m. and walked to the office door only to find a note stating to go to the house. Where's the house? A person walking her dog, not staying at the campground, explained the house is further down the road in the middle of the campground. Fine. We walked to the house and observed the small river front sites. We knocked on the door several times and no answer. This was a good thing because we did not like anything that we saw. Old trailers, a pile of old tires, old propane tanks, close sites. We walked back to our RV and hi-tailed it out of there. This campground might be OK for tent camping, tubing on the river, but it was not the kind of place we prefer. There is a very nice state park not far away. - Buckie

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

A very large facility North of the charming town of Hope, New Jersey. For a large rig, the roads here are very small country roads and require a lot of caution to negotiate. Coming North from Hope, NJ, there were no signs at the turns and require good planning, as a turnaround on some of the roads would be very difficult.
We were in a site at the top of the hill on a beautiful grass area and the first night there, a Thursday night, was one of the quietest nights we have ever experienced at a park, contrasted with the next night, which was one of the noisest! There are many, many seasonol campers scattered everywhere, and come Friday night, it seemed like they all came out from the city to relax and party. We had a particularly noisy group near us that had all sorts of people come in, cars parked all over, sitting around a fire, and the noise of their talking and laughing was so loud, we slept with our windows closed and air conditioning on, to drown it out. They even brought a lawn mower and were mowing grass in front of their area. I mentioned the noise to one of the staff the next day and got a shrug of the shoulders. I know they like the money from the seasonal rentals, but they should police them more and make sure they abide by the same quiet hours that we have to follow. We would never stay there again on a weekend night because of that. - elduque

Great place for kids with no supervision...several playgrounds and lots of room to ride bikes. There were masses of children running around having a wonderful time, screaming and yelling with not a parent in sight. Very few transient sites. Ours was pull-thru, roomy, easy to get in and out. No antenna TV reception. No Verizon hotspot or phone. No cable. No wifi. (Did not pay for their wifi thanks to a previous reviewer's advice.) The worst thing was a live DJ show for three hours Saturday night with music so loud it shook our RV for the entire time. There was no way to get away from it. We received no warning of this event so we were stuck with it. This is an attractive place but not one suited to retirees who detest loud noise. We will definitely not return. - all4pets

We stayed here two weeks for a family wedding in nearby Stroudsburg, PA. Good location in that it is far from the highway, so it is very quiet at night. Lots and lots of seasonals. Our neighbors were from Florida and Arizona. The parks charges for WiFi, which was basically $5 per day. We opted not to get that because that is a total rip-off, and one of our neighbors said that it wasn't worth it because the signal is very weak. The park also charges $8 PER PERSON PER DAY for visitors, which is also a total rip-off. We were told if they didn't stay longer than an hour they wouldn't charge.
Other than that, the park is kept clean and the pool was nice. The "adult" pool had a couple of tables with umbrellas, but the "family" pool had nothing. I had to ask one of the workers to bring an umbrella for me, as I am recovering from cancer and can't sit in the direct sun for long while watching my grandson in the pool. They were very nice and rigged something up for me.
We used the laundry facilities a couple of times. The room is not air conditioned but fairly clean. They keep it open 12/7, which is nice.
Not sure if we will stay here again if there is another option. We didn't know the area, being from Colorado, but now we have a better idea of where we might want to stay next time. - thecampbells

Due to route changes and traffic delays, we could not make our original destination and needed a place to stay overnight. Even though I called late on a Sunday afternoon (at closing time), owner was very helpful and friendly. Wish we had more time to spend here. It is a wonderful campground. Very quiet, wooded, large sites. Road is tight going in, but very doable. You can tell the owners take pride in their campground. We camped here in a motorhome. - Coach Perry

Let begin by stating the campground is definitely off the beaten path. You are somewhat close to the Poconos and the Casino Airy.
The campground is in a residential area. Pulling into the campground is very tight. It was a little confusing on finding which building was the main office. Once I located the office the staff was very friendly and checked me in very quickly. I was given a gate key and it was needed to enter and leave the campground. I proceeded to find my site, and the main road is somewhat narrow. Some of the trees could be cut back away from the road and there were a few low lying branches along the way. I was given site #51 which is in the back of the campground. The site was all gravel, very large and plenty of room for my 30 foot travel trailer. The picnic table looked new and the fire ring was very large. The site was very quiet probably because it was Monday and Tuesday night of the week. The pedestal was easy to get to, but it did not provide enough voltage. My power surge protector kept tripping just with my air conditioning on and my hot water heater. Let alone trying to watch tv at the same time. Water pressure was sufficient and the sewer was positioned in the middle of the site. The bathrooms were clean but could use some updating. The campground does have a pool and some playground equipment for the kids. - clw_man

Nice place. We were parked in the Meadow loop. This seemed to have more transients than the other loops. We parked on the south side of the loop. Lots of room, on grass. No satellite in out spot due to trees. Parking on the north side of Meadow loop would allow reception.
Price is decent for the area. Close to Tacomic Pkwy for car travel. We would stay here again when in the area. - Seb

Nice wooded campground on a small lake. Mostly seasonals; I could only count a few transient sites. Very quiet. The party site even settled down at quiet time. We asked for a 50 amp site but got a 30. The cable TV didn't work and we couldn't get and OTA channels. None of this mattered to us because it was just an overnight stay.
The roads are a little tight for large motor homes. I would say that rigs over 36 feet should consider somewhere else. Be sure to follow the website's directions to the campground to avoid the Taconic Parkway which does not allow campers or trailers. - jplante4

Decent place to stay, no amenities, far from the expressway, not cheap. On our way to the Boston area from the west, we needed an overnight spot with full-hookups and in the area, there was not much other choice. I called ahead and spoke to the manager. Very nice fellow. He told me he could accommodate me. He warned me to use the directions from their website. We did and it took us right there without worrying about low clearances. At the office, using the outdoor wall phone, we called the number indicated and the manager was there quickly. He took our $45 payment (accepts credit cards now) and escorted us to our site. It was a 50 foot deep back in. No problem. Note that the sewer was at the back of the site. I was able to reach with my standard (long) sewer hose. We didn't use the cable but saw the hookup. 50 amp power was fine. Water pressure was low (about 30 PSI). We felt safe. I'd stay here again if I needed to stop in the area for an overnight. - jbeletti

Pros: Location. We were there visiting with friends who have a house in the area. Clean and quiet. The sites were long enough (just) but we could fit the truck next to the trailer since it was wide. Grass and gravel sites. Slow or non existent Wi-Fi. Cell service fine. Utilities were OK (we only hooked up our water and electric). We found out the sewer connection was stuck on departure. They had a guy come out to fix it. But we decided not to dump the tanks after all. Cons: Windy roads inside the campground. But we were able to get around. No dog run, but there is a big grassy field. Can't say much else about it since most of the day we were visiting our friends. I think I would go back. People who we did meet were very friendly. Good location. - jcpjane

Cleanest bathrooms I have ever seen camping, cleaner than some people's homes! Lots of trees/shade, roomy sites with picnic tables like new and freshly emptied fire pits. Lots of camp goodies/gear in the store plus a little ice cream shop that was delicious! Drinking allowed at campsites only. Pool locked at all times, must ask staff to enter. Playground was old fashioned see-saw, swings and merry-go-round, but very well kept, with a fresh coat of paint. Children under 6 must be supervised at all times at camp site, in restrooms, in store, at pool and playground. Very quiet, well run facility. - GMC_STRIPES

Sites seemed to be on the small side, and the ones in the area we were in weren't very level. Most sites are shaded. The escort to our site was unexpected and greatly appreciated, as there are some very sharp turns and the escort showed us the best path to take through them. Overall, campground was well maintained. Campground owners and employees were all very friendly - we had a lot of fun kidding around with them. As others have mentioned, the campground was very quiet and peaceful, even though our site was very close to most of the activities. - tanstaafl

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

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

We stayed here for a night. They have a Good Sam discount. The park is close to US-209 but the access is along a windy and very narrow with a slight uphill grade secondary road making it difficult to remain in the lane of travel especially around the tight corners. The turn into park leads to a short (steep) uphill climb into the park on a gravel road. The interior roads and sites are gravel. The roads were narrow but there was sufficient room to maneuver. The pull through sites were long enough for our 40’ RV with the toad attached. The sites were generally level but some of them in the short stay section have a significant slope requiring extensive blocking to get level. No privacy between the sites. They have full hook ups – water, electricity (50 AMP), & sewer connection that were generally midway along the side of the site. There was an outside table. No fire pits but that didn’t stop anyone as there were burn marks scattered around the campsites where others have had a fire. There seem to be a lot of long term residents. There are a few trees around the park so there could be some obstructions to the sky for satellite reception. Our Verizon hotspot reception was good. There was really no designated pet area but there was a large grassy field and sufficient interior roads to walk dogs. There were no bag dispensers and the garbage collection was the dumpster at the front of the park. For being in a potentially hazardous/severe weather area, there was no underground storm shelter. None of the structures in the park were identified as a severe weather shelter. We would not stay here again if in the area. - bsb814

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

Go here for a quiet, primitive experience. We backed the trailer into site 14 on the Launt Pond site, which was level, paved with natural stones. It's very green and wooded in the hills of Upstate New York. The address is Downsville, NY, a pleasant little town. The other site at this campground is for equestrians who bring their own horses. Launt Pond is quite scenic and you can hike a considerable number of trails in the connected Bear Springs Wildlife Management Area. There are no pull-through sites and no hookups. Each site has a picnic table and fire pit and you can and must buy the local firewood to avoid carrying wood pests. The on-site ranger is eager to help and keeps the place clean and working. Even without hookups, we recommend it. - Dick and Linda
