This is a private park with many full time residences on site. They have a section for short time visitors. They escort you to your site and assist in hook ups if needed. We stopped here as we passed through the area. They have two pools and two stores where you can get supplies. We will stay here again when we come south from our present trip. - A hitch and hop

Watch out for kids running a muck on electric golf cars. If you complain in the office about it, you get blown away. There is no interest. Many of the sites are very narrow and a seasonal site person can take up 2-3 sites leaving you with no room, not even to park your car. The security guard, in the guard house at the entrance, old man with white hair, is very nasty, like he owns the place. - been around

Great little park. Mostly permanent residents, but staff, residents and campers were friendly. Some shade, easy pull-through sites. - Casper2011

I've camped here several times in a motorhome and tent. The sites are mostly seasonal with water electric and cable hookups. No site dumps but they do offer to clean out your tanks for a small fee - $12.00. There is also a dump station. You can also rent a trailer, park model, and cabins. The cabins are small but they are lake front and nice. The campground, located at the base of the Appalachian trail, is clean with a picturesque lake for fishing, a clean pool with a game room, volleyball, and a pavilion for weekends bands, DJ, and even Sunday church services. The baths and showers are decent but can get a bit overwhelmed on holiday weekends. The rental hook up sites range in size from small to very large and spacious. For me, the true gem of this place are the primitive wooded sites. All densely forested and large. About half are trailer and motorhome accessible. The rest are tent or popup only. They all offer a true boondocking experience. The staff is nice and accommodating. There are also many activities available. - DumpStation

This is my second season at Mt Vista. I came in May this year and left in October. I love this park. Staff is super friendly and helpful. Even on busiest weekends the nights are quiet. My site was big enough and had bushes on either side so my views were of trees not another camper. Wi-Fi always good.Water pressure excellent. - gone to the dogs

We stayed here in August for a long weekend. Staff was awesome due to my hubs being in an accident. They were very accommodating in helping me find my way around to purchase supplies. Sites are large and it is very quiet at night. - Aidens Nannie

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

I stayed for a month....so I could not enter the rate properly. However.....500.00 from mid sept to mid oct. That included electric.
The staff is extremely helpful and friendly. This is not a fancy resort but a simple down to earth campground. They are fixing up different areas continuosly. In fact they are hoping to have at least one of two planned dog parks operational. I will most certainly be returning next year....looking forward to it.
Also...some beautiful trails in the area. - Marneen

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

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

A very nice campground, beautifully set up. Quiet and fairly spread out. The owner was very friendly. - Laura Oostdyk

We stayed here before about five years ago and loved it. We have a larger fifth wheel now and the weather was hotter, so we found the 30 amp service to be completely inadequate. Also the sites were made for much smaller campers so we had very few options. When we told the management that we could not stay because of the voltage problems, they could not have been nicer and refunded our money immediately. - mary mcmoo

DO NOT FOLLOW YOUR GPS. This is what the staff member admitted that she should tell everyone when they call to make a reservation. Unfortunately for us, and many others before us according to the residents on the hill approaching the park, we were not told this and ended up having to call road side assist to tow us up the extremely steep road. Cost $650! When we arrived at the park the owner made all sorts of excuses, saying that all their literature states that the hill is steep - yep it does, in tiny print, certainly not in bold letters as it should be. Second most important thing for the owner was to make sure that all our family had signed the check in form - no consideration at all that we were still settling our account with the tow truck people and our nerves! As we had been hanging on the side of the hill for so long we decided to buy a bag of ice to cool down a couple of drinks - $6.50 for the bag! The cost of a 3rd (or subsequent persons) is $12 per night - highest we have ever had to pay in all our 18 months of travel. The park itself is pleasant enough, sites under trees , electric and water but no sewer. The wolf preserve is cool - there was no info session on the day we were there but still went for a walk and saw some from the outside of their enclosure. The alternative roads to the entrance of the park are definitely not big rig friendly, very narrow and windy with lots of low hanging branches and still relatively steep. - Aussie Gap Year

This campground is over priced for the quality of the park. I always inform the campground when I make a reservation about the length of my unit and if I plan to unhook the tow vehicle. We did not unhook the tow vehicle since were only staying overnight but the pull trough site was too short for the Motorhome and tow vehicle. Fortunately the campground was not busy so I was able to let the vehicle hang over a little into the road. The roads are gravel and dirt and are bumpy with very sharp turns. We had to swing off the road to avoid scraping on a large painted rock sticking out into the road on a curve. Our site was not level and required several blocks to get the motorhome even close to level. The sewer pipe was about 1 foot higher than the ground so it was difficult to drain the tanks well. We could hear road noise while sitting outside at night. The WIFI was unusable but the cable worked OK. The restrooms and showers were reasonably clean. Over all the campground is clean, and shady. I did not see any messy campsites or trash laying around. For the price I expected a better quality campground so I do not think I will choose this campground on my next trip through the area. - Freelander1

Campsite was tricky to locate, no sign posted until the gated entry. Very expensive for what you get. Check in was friendly enough. Roads were narrow, tree-lined and very difficult to drive. Site required two Lego blocks to be level. Strong and clear digital cable. Advertised WiFi was unusable, even with my external antenna. Small gift / sundries shop had excellent ice cream. Basically, overpriced, when compared with what we typically pay across the country for a full hookup site. - Llando88

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

We stayed in a pull through site with a patio and it was nice. Campground was empty as we stayed on 3 weekday nights in October. Fairly old school and not much to write home about but we had a great 2 days of hiking some great trails and spending some family time together. Very safe and the ladies at the counter are very nice. Easy to get to. Highly recommend the pull through with the patio! The other sites looked, well, just ok. - Howls_Castle

We have stayed here a few times and it continues to improve. They have added new full hookup sites and improved their recreation facilities. However we can't maneuver their roads with our 40'er + toad. We have to unhook. Otherwise it's a great place. - piclif

If you have children, you will love it here - there are all kinds of things to do. But because of that, it is very noisy and busy. There is a lot of road noise also. But the staff was very friendly and helpful and the showers were spotless with plenty of hot water. Also, they give you an arm band when you check in and they are very adamant about you having that with you at all times. - mary mcmoo

Many seasonals, but they were nice and well maintained. Site was level. Much of the campground is wooded. Pull thru sites in an open grassy area. Staff was nice. Would stay again. - DYK 640
Jun 2016 - $25.00
Very nice camp ground. $49 a night but with PA discount only $24.50. Nice hosts, maintained very well, free cable and Wifi. Water pressures a little low but manageable. They had pull through 'companion' sites so if you're traveling with friends they can park in the opposite direction next to you and share tables and space for visiting and cooking out. They also had cabins for rent. Roads were a little winding to get here but we made it just fine with a 40' Class A with a toad. Community house had great laundry facilities, gym, very clean bathrooms and showers, indoor and outdoor pools. We'd definitely recommend this CG! - Cfvalk

Great location in the Poconos. Terrific office staff. Older showers, but clean, with strong water pressure and a large heated bath house. Verizon Mi-Fi worked well, and cable was good. - User3773

This has been our most pleasant stay at this campground. We used to have to buy $1 tokens to get back into he campground after the office closed. Now you can get an electronic pass with just a refundable $25 deposit. Big improvement !
I also have seen improvement in the friendliness of the office staff. They are much more pleasant than they used to be. I guess all those negative comments were finally listened to.
As noticed in previous reviews, there is no on-site sewer, but they do come and pump out your tanks on Mondays and Fridays.
This is the first time we have camped here in a bigger Class A, and we could only run one AC at a time because they only have 30 Amp. Wiring at least some sites with 50A would be a really nice thing for those of us with bigger rigs. It didn't help that we stayed here during record-breaking heat !
DRFCG is really two different campgrounds. From Sunday night until Friday afternoon, it is pretty quiet here with a lot of empty site. The weekends are rowdy, with a lot of tent campers, but security is pretty much on the ball and quiets down those who get too rowdy.
WI-FI is pretty much restricted to the public buildings at the top of the hill. Our first two weeks here I was able to access it fairly well with my WI-FI booster, but then the signal strength seemed to fade.
Cable (via DISH Network) TV is very limited, less than 20 channels with only SD and kind of weird oversized picture.
All in all, this campground has the best rates in this area ($700 per month), and we will, no doubt, be back next summer for a month or so. - dhaney1944

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
Oct 2013 - $40.00
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

Clean campground with friendly staff, well stocked camp store, lots of activities for kids. Huge lake with a small beach. Bring your glove for evening softball games. We were unable to get an AT&T cell signal in H loop and had difficulty connecting to wifi in that area. Able to easily connect to wifi in other areas of campground. Security rounds frequently. Quiet dogs are welcome per literature, however they need to be more mindful & address problem pets. Would recommend and camp here again. - JStrohec

As always, a very enjoyable trip. Road to the campground can be adventoureous, but take your time and its no problem. Probably the best campground wifi I've ever seen, and it's free. Lots of activities and the store has all the basics and more. Excellent bike riding. We have kayaks now, so we can't wait till our next trip there. - Mike Jh

Great place for families. Lots to do, which is nice since it is pretty far from anything. This is the second time we camped here. It is clean, the spaces are large, and there are full hookups in most sites and water/electric in others. Very well kept and peaceful. - linda f
