30 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 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

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

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

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

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
Aug 2016 - $24.00
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

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

One of the few RV parks within traveling distance to the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton area. For a small park, there are nice amenities. The pool (both indoor & outdoor) are spotless. Nice snack bar with breakfast on weekends. Sites are close together, but OK. Only issue is water pressure was horrible. Barely enough to rinse dishes with. We would stay here again when in the area. - laurly

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 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

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

Evergreen is a real camping experience for families. Go hiking on the trails 1/2 mile down the road, swim at the lake, ride bikes, play ball in the field. Campground is clean and well kept. quiet hours are 10pm-8am and you may walk your pets around the campground on leash. The staff is friendly and expect campers to read and obey the rules so everyone has an enjoyable experience. There are grocery stores and eateries within 15 minutes either direction Bath/Windgap. Saylorsburg flea market is approx. 20 minutes away. Pocono raceway is within 30 minutes of the campground. The camp office has ice/candy/ice cream/snacks/sunscreen/repellents etc. - sassy67

I have been camping at Evergreen lake for the last ten years. It is a beautifully kept campground and the rules are fair. Quite hours are from 11pm to 8am which is nice. My dogs enjoy their walks around the campground. Very nice place, I recommend it to all. - BL2006

The campground is very clean and quiet. The staff is very nice. There are many activities on the weekends and the beach area is very clean. We enjoyed the mini golf also. I've been camping here for nine years and love it. My pets also enjoy taking walks around the campgrounds. - BL2006

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

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
