33 RV Parks near Bangor, Pennsylvania
May 2016 - $20.00
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 was our fifth stay here, and the most pleasant. Most of the office staff are pleasant and helpful. The same is true of the maintenance crew. This year we were blessed with cooler weather, which makes for a much nicer experience when you are limited to 30 A. electric service. As mentioned in last year's review, a few 50 A. sites for us bigger rigs would be a nice upgrade. Our site was quite level, even though there was a lot of muddy ground due to quite a bit of rain. It wasn't a big problem. but we had to remove our shoes after walking outside. We were parked under some big, old walnut trees, which provided lots of shade. We got used to the occasional walnut bouncing off our roof. The only real negative experience was an RV with three couples who got very drunk and were disruptive until at least 3 AM. When the management heard about this, the drunken idiots were told to leave when they tried to book an extra day here. To me, it shows that the management is serious about civilized behavior in this campground. TV cable is limited to 20 channels, but that was more than enough. WI-FI is located up near the office but, with my booster, I could usually access it during weekdays. The weekends are much busier, and with the influx of kids I had to use my mobile hotspot. It is costlier this year to have visitors -- $10 each as a "facilities fee," but I would guess this is because some campers have abused using the facilities, which mostly consist of the pool and the miniature golf course, which has actually been upgraded since last season. In closing, there are not that many decent campgrounds in the area, and this one has the nicest scenery, location, service, and the lowest fees, at least for longer stays like ours. - dhaney1944

On the lower camp sites you hardly hear the traffic on 46. Most of the upper sites are park model trailers, cabins and campers who haven't been on the road in years. Nice quiet campground except if they are mowing lawn or pumping out. If your kids will be playing basketball, volleyball or on the playground Oak 6 might be a perfect site, you could watch them from your picnic table. The heated pool looked good but it was too wet and cool while we were there so we never got to try it. - LatitudeAdjustment

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

Stayed during the 2017 "RiverFest" weekend in July. Big rain (3-5") first night, many campsites and some roads near us had huge "lakes" of water, but basically all drained during the next 24 hrs. Staff was very cheery and helpful, and ran many fun activities for the kids and adults, with all of them being free (many other c'gs would no doubt charge for them.) Bathrooms were clean & kept in good shape during our stay. Biggest draw for us is the very pretty site right on the Delaware river; the river is split around an island beginning at the front of the campground, and the river between the campground and island is like a large creek, about 4-5' deep at center, and fun and safe enough for even littler kids to play in. They do also have a nice concrete boat put-in right at the front of the campground for bigger boats that want to go in the main river. Site are generally large, and most have at least some shade. We always have a great time here, and will continue to return every year. - Will Dennis

Great family owned campground. Right on the scenic Delaware River. We really enjoyed camping here. The staff was very polite and helpful. There was plenty of activities to do. We did an 8 mile canoe trip on the Delaware River . It was AWESOME. They bus you up the river and then you canoe back to the campground. We really enjoyed our stay here and cant wait to go back. - scottrig09

Ugh! What a disaster. Checked in after having made a reservation using my Good Sam Discount. The shower shall I used in the Men's bath house didn't drain. Wound up standing in 4 inches of water. While we were there, 4 police cars raced into camp. Don't know why. We stayed in our camper. The sites have some kind of black gravel that you'll track into your unit. Numerous potholes throughout the dirt roads to the sites. When we went to the office in the morning to tell them we were leaving (* AM on a Sunday), the office was closed, but a sign on the wall said: "Overnight sites, $30". Yet we were charged $36. While they offer cable TV, we needed a barrel connector to hook up. Fortunately, I had one. The 30 amp electric was terrible! 112 volts without any electric appliance in operation. I had to use an auto-formr to be able to run the air conditioner. Find another place to camp! - thetravelkids

This park has a large number of seasonal and a few year round residents. Park is neat and well maintained. They have about 10 sites for short term campers. They have a well maintained pool that seems to be in constant use by mothers and kids. We're here for a month while visiting family in the area and regularly stay here each year. It's quiet and OK for our needs. It has a very sharp uphill blind corner on the approach to the entrance that can be exciting if you happen to meet another rig going the opposite way. We got invaded this stay by small ants. - SuperRep

I stayed for two months. Internet worked sporadically. Over Memorial Day weekend the park was like a frat party. Loud music late, rude campers. management was not receptive to complaints. - gone to the dogs

It was very clean the restrooms and showers. The water pressure was poor in our rv but in the restroom it was better. Our site was not as level as our neighbors took some doing to get it level enough so the bathroom door stayed closed. The pond was small but we all enjoyed catching fish. I will stay here again. - mommabee

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

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

Campground with a lot of private wooded lots - electric and water only. We have a 34 foot motorhome, and didn't have a problem, but it may be for the bigger rigs. You must use the directions on the website - the GPS will lead you on a VERY hilly road that will be a problem with your camper. Very friendly and helpful staff. It's deceiving but this is a big place. It has a small pond that you can go swimming, canoeing and paddleboating. The one strange thing is that this is bear country, but yet they have regular trash cans at each site. They are not bear proof. We didn't see the trash cans knocked over, but there are many reviews to the contrary. They should consider the safety of their guests. We did see a bear ambling across the woods when we first got there, but that was it. The campground borders on the Lakota Wolf Preserve - a wonderful place to visit while there. Will definitely be back. - Kevie

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

We enjoyed our stay at Triple Brook and will probably return. We stayed on Hill Top Circle at the top of the campground, on a grassy site along the tree line perimeter. The sites are a decent size, fairly level, and easy to back into. The roads are very narrow. The pools were beautiful and clean, and the store well stocked. The bathrooms were adequate, although only 1 stall had a locking door, and they needed more frequent staff attention then they received (cleaning, paper, etc.) . There seemed to be good WIFI coverage, but you had to purchase a code for access. We brought bikes, but the roads were too steep to use them. The mini-golf course was all torn up. Other facilities looked good. - scrunchie99

This is a small campground with a nice pool, tennis courts and pond. Fishing was catch and release which was nice. Small game room but enough to have some fun. Very nice staff. Roads were a little tight but we managed to get through ok. You have a choice of wooded campsite, or open field. Only down side was that no patio lights were allowed, so it was pretty dark and a little hard to see in the wooded site. This was a nice campground, I would recommend this place to families for a nice experience. - sassy67

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

We stayed at Evergreen Lakes for 13 nights to visit family and friends in the area. This is an older campground that is mostly seasonal RV, older TT and fifth wheels. The first site we were put into was to low in the back for a motorhome, so the let us move to D46. The interior roads have a lot of low branches. While the wooded setting is pretty and quiet, it was not a big rig friendly CG and I'm only 35 foot. I saw voltages as high as 132 at night when the demand dropped due to cool nights (45-49) and few RV's had Heat Pumps. You are required to run your hot water on propane because of the 30 amp service. After my lengthy stay I came to find out that they have at least eight 30 amp/water/sewer setups right at the entrance in a stone area. I asked if they'd let me stay there if I come back and they said yes if it is after April and before mid-October. Unfortunately this is really the only CG close to the Bethlehem/Easton, PA area. On future trips I will return if I can stay in the open area at the entrance rather than have to be in the sites in the woods. My Rate reflects a weekly rate. I paid for 2 weeks for a 13 day stay as it was cheaper than there nightly rate. Cash or Check only, no CC. Staff: Friendly and Helpful Inner Roads: Paved/stone Site No.: D46, Wooded so No Satellite Site: Backin, Power and sewer were convenient, but water, cable were between our site and the one behind us, Site Level: level Power: 30a, 118-132v Water: 40 psi and lower depending on demand Sewer: No issues WiFi: No WiFi, but had 3 to 4 bars with AT&T Cell. - Russ G

I am working on a project in the area and have been staying at Evergreen Lake for over a year. It has been a great experience. My family gets to visit for the summer and they have had a great time every time they have been here. The lake is nice and the kids love swimming at the beach area. There are activities for adults and kids scheduled throughout the season. The staff is nice and the campground is neat and clean. The location is away from towns but you can be in Allentown or the Poconos in minutes. I would highly recommend this campground. Follow the rules, especially the pet rules, be kind, and you will have a great time. If you do have an issue of any kind, let the office know and they will take care of it. Happy camping. - Don Yoho

We were looking for a campground that would have good access to hiking trails along the Delaware Gap. We're self-contained and don't use the facilities except for an occasional shower. We stayed in late October on weekend nights in our 25 foot MH. This is a beautiful campground situated along the Delaware River. The grounds are well maintained. The primitive sites are arrayed along the river or in a loop on a small hillside. Most sites are large and level with gravel pads or grass for parking. Sites 52-58 are on the river with nice views, without trees for shade or privacy. The remaining sites are in trees with shade. The showers are large and clean with ample hot water. There does not appear to be a dump station. There are water spigots throughout the CG, don't know if they are threaded. There is usable ATT and Verizon cell coverage.
There are 26 miles of trails within the park, including several trails that start from within the CG. Sunfish Pond is beautiful. There's river access for canoeing. The Visitor Center is open in the summer. The SP is within the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area. - dsvt

We went to this campground for a TOUR before becoming a seasonal ($2800.00 asking way to much $ for what it is) WOW! this place is run down. Bath houses dirty and falling apart. Lots of old and/or abandoned RV's. Grass area tall and over grown. Game room building/floor has a bad slant. playground was dated. Didn't bother looking at the pool. This is a large property and COULD be a amazing place if it was brought up to date and the grounds were taken care of. - Momszoo1

I would NOT recommend this place for anyone camping with families. Broken down trailers litter the landscape. Roads are in a poor state of repair. Electric 30 amp service was not available when checked in & electric lines were run above ground from site to site just to hook us up. Maintenance man ran over sewer caps when mowing grass so sewer connections were NOT capped. They added a new elbow after a complaint, but didn't secure it to pipe. So gray/black water leaked onto ground where the above ground 30 amp electric lines were! I told the staff about it but they just shrugged & said 'OK'. Never fixed it. When I asked why wasn't any of this done BEFORE we arrived, they said "Memorial day just kinda snuck up on us this year". Really??? Second the staff. Rules are non-existent at this campground. Everyone speeds from cars to golf carts & even though one seasonal put up a sign to remind everyone of the speed limit, no one cared & the seasonals are the worst offenders. Dogs friendly is one thing but to allow campers' dogs to run free is just a hazard. Yes, everyone thinks their dog is OK, but incidents happen. And just from a liability standpoint, the leash rule should be enforced. Oh, & people who don't leash their dogs, also don't pick up their poop either. Drinking & camping has always gone together, but at family campgrounds, people drink only at their campsites. This place, drinking & driving golf carts is a sport. Now the kicker, there is a 'weed' dealer living as a seasonal on top of the hill. He advertises right at his campsite with his web address posted on his car. Not only do seasonals drive to his site & buy, but outside customers also come into campground. This is well known to the staff & all seasonals. Overall, if you are looking to party & don't care about living conditions then this is for you. But if you family camp with children, this is NOT the place. Someone will get hurt here. - easycamper

Not a "family" campground. The bathhouse was horrendous, filthy the whole weekend we were there. The showers were barely operational. Most bathroom stalls were out of order and only two showers "worked". Water sprayed out of the spicket in all directions. Don't claim to have amenities when it's obvious you do nothing to maintain them. There were no "quiet" hours. Music and partying lasted well after midnight. There were also folks openly drunk in public places and drug use was obvious by some campers. Nothing I wanted my children around. If you have young children, hope they can sleep through anything if you want any type of rest in a tent. Broken down, dilapidated trailers were everywhere. Scenic views did not exist and it was far from being camping where you hope to be surrounded by nature views and sounds. This was by far the worst campground we've stayed at in our many years of camping. Also if you are in a tent, beware, my husband is covered in some type of rash from the "fauna" surrounding our tent site. Beware of the good reviews. It's obvious these are from their "seasonal" campers....aka folks in RVs. These folks do not use the bathroom facilities or tent sites, so they give a false impression on the state of the campground.
DON'T BE FOOLED!!!! This is not a family campground, but if you wish to party this is your spot, because management won't do anything to stop you! - Scenic Route Camper
