Mar 2018 - $40.00
Stayed here 3 nights due to need to be close to a family function. Other parks in area were full. Older park with mostly permanent residents. Staff was friendly and reasonably helpful, but the park itself needs vast improvements. Here to attend family matters in Philadelphia, did not do any leisure activities. Lower section of park was only half full, so parking for toad off my site wasn't a problem. Trash dumpster stayed full and campers left bags on top of or around it. Based on overall conditions of park, we did not use bath facilitijes or look for laundry facilities. - Movgfwd

This is a difficult campground to review. There are things I really like about it, but their website is also a little misleading and their bathhouse is just terrible.
Start with the good, we were camped in the lower portion of the campground on a water/electric site. The sites are in a great location, well spaced, level, with large trees and a picturesque fishing pond. Water and electric were both in good working order. There is some light and road noise from nearby Rt 100, but it died down in the evening. The downside of the location, and what the map and website don't explain, is that these sites are on a different property, even in a different municipality, and more then ½mile from the bath house and the rest of the campground. There was a port-a-pot there, but you had to drive to take a shower.
The bath house was the other downer. It had nice showers that seemed to be recently renovated, but one of the toilets was clogged all weekend and the whole place smelled due to poor ventilation. There were no mirrors above the sinks, and it finally it was a struggle to work the lock to the ladies room, we could not open it at all the first night we were there.
We never ran into the crazy owner and in fact we only saw one staff member who checked us in when we arrived. She was wonderful, leading us to a site of our choosing and bringing down a large load of firewood which she helped unload.
In all I would return, but only if they resolved the bath house situation. - Cyclonic

Stayed on a very quiet Memorial Day weekend. Sites are close together but are clean and well kept as was the bathhouse. Owners super nice even stopping by throughout our stay to see if we needed anything. Would not recommend staying on hill with children as sites are tight, hill is steep and not much to do but it's perfect for a quiet bare-bones camping experience. - Top Dog

The road leading to the campground is narrow, but we were able to drive our 32' motorcoach to the campground with little problem. The campground is aptly named. Sites are wide with a gravel base and lots of boulders and trees. Sewer is not available for non-seasonal stays, but there are dump stations available and there is also a honey dipper service available for a fee. The campground offers different activities on the weekends and made announcements over a loud speaker about them occasionally, including when the quiet hours started at 11:00pm. It was noisy with children playing in the area we camped in (site 15).
One feature this campground offers is a deli that is open on Fridays from 4:00-9:00pm that offers dinner (this weekend was meatloaf - ask when making a reservation). This could be helpful when arriving in the early evening for a possible meal solution.
The owners are very helpful even with repairs, which we found out when one of our sliders stopped functioning. We appreciated Bill taking a look at it for us and helping us get it back in. - JC06

This is the first time staying at this campground and we were pleasantly surprised. It is tucked away on some back wooded roads and the campground is spread out on two sides of the road. We stayed in a section away from the main campground where the pool and activities were going on, across the road, but we liked it. Very spacious, wooded pull through site. It has a lake for fishing and lots of activities for kids and grown-ups were posted. We walked around to see what the other sites looked like: 90% are permanents, but they have 2 small sections dedicated pretty much to weekend campers. And both sections were shady and set up nicely. We went to Rice's Flea Market on Saturday, which is about a half hour away. The only reason I'm giving a 9: the two wooded sections for weekend campers, do not have any bathhouses. You would need to walk a pretty far distance to use the bathhouses. We were only here for 3 days, so it was ok that they don't have sewer hook-ups at any sites at this campground and we could dump on our way out. We will definitely be coming back here at least one or two more times this season. We just loved that it was tucked away from it all. - pokey

We stayed here about mid-Sept, and well, didn't get to try the pool (which was closed) but looked nice. The staff were helpful, but the roads and sites were small and rough. It was hard to maneuver our Fifth Wheel into the campground and our lot which is narrow. It's a pretty campground but a rocky mountain. We probably would visit again if in the area. - camp1984

The most friendly owners of any campground we have ever visited in 18 years of camping. You can actually talk to them without getting sales pitch. Just plain friendly, human. Great facilities. Nothing fancy, just practical and useful. Will go back next time through the area. - Tom Romito

Friendly owner. Good service. 2 women running the campground and there's a lot of work here. Things could use upgrading. Pool could use some chairs and new deck. Irregular sites. Stuff sitting around. This is a older campground, not a resort. If you are in a small trailer or popup the wooded sites would be great. Nice playground. Bathhouses old, but ok. Rate quoted in review is weekly rate plus Electric which was metered and charged separately. Road in was narrow, including a one lane bridge, not Big Rig friendly. - cincychic

The roads into the park are good, once in the park there are pot holes and some tight turns. Check in was fast and friendly. The park has a very run down feel to it. Most sites are permanent and not very well kept up. There is a fair amount of litter on the roads. Over the weekend it was very noisy with lots of partying. There is a pool, and numerous other activities, along with a catch and release pond. We were in site 118, a gravel pull through, end site. There is a picnic table and fire ring. Site was level with full hook ups. No issues with any of them. WiFi was very spotty. Verizon signal was good. We stayed June 14-18, 2018 and paid $32 a night. - BarrettsHappyTrails

When we got there and set up I think we were in the hardest spot in the place. Also one of the other people in the spot behind us said it was the worst spot. Because of trees and other campers, you can't get into a good spot to set up. We had to block in the motorhome next to us just to set up. I had to use my extra 50 ft cord to reach the power. Their drain pipe is about 10 inches out of the ground on most sites. Once we got everything set up one of the Full timer/Seasonal campers had their kids riding around in their cart with the radio playing at full volume. Then about 1130 we were sitting out at our fire and there was another full timer fighting with his wife or girl friend. Saturday we took a walk around the place and it had to be at least 75% full timers. Some of them didn't even clean up their site and others had their carts torn apart and working on them. One guy had 2 40lb propane tanks holding the back end up and he was working on it. Now I want to say they try because the employees were working on new Horse Shoe Site. I think maybe if they made some of the Seasonal people clean up after themselves it could be a great place but now. NO. And the Bath house was filthy. There are 3 showers in the place, we looked at them all. Because I don't like to use mine in the camper; its just too small. I also had to get the guy next to me to move his car to give us more room after getting it in. We had to park next to our camper about 5 feet off and the guy that moved his car parked next to me. - ztoymaker

Rate reflects 7 nights with no discount. This park is open April thru November. However many of the rigs have been in place for much longer than just seasonally. They are unsightly with tarps covering leaky roofs, dirty and lots of "stuff" stored around the site. They should change the name from campground to trailer park. I used the showers by the office. They were barely clean and the shower stalls small. Water pressure was good. I used the laundry facility...again, barely clean. Wi-Fi is better here than most places I have stayed. Lots of golf cart traffic....constant as a matter of fact...some are gasoline and the fumes would kill you. Also lots of vehicle traffic as early as 5:30 a.m. Cable TV had adequate channels. - RVingMe

First campground we stayed in at start of our full-time RV life adventure. Nice campground at top of a hill in the park (which means Verizon users can actually get 1-2 bars of signal service, as compared to virtually no service down in the state park main use area.) Paved roads and sites in the pet-friendly C-loop, most looked pretty level but there were a few exceptions. Decent spacing between sites, and most were shaded with mature trees. Adequate road clearance for big rigs. Bathroom showers had good hot water, but the one in C-loop was not cleaned for 3 days, until day we left, probably due to camp host being absent for first 3 days of our stay. Lots of activities possible in park, from hiking to kayak and canoe rentals, orienteering, disc golf course, and a big swimming pool (that you have to drive to from the campground). No Wifi, as typical for a state park. We would stay again if in area. - We Roamed and Rambled

We enjoyed our 2 days we stayed at French Creek. The facility is beginning to show it's age but still has the charm of a very peaceful state campground. We booked our stay on line and thought the "service Fee" charge ($7) was a little excessive. Our 5th wheel was 30 ft and our tow vehicle was a F-250 Crew Cab w/ 8 ft bed. The site was a little tight with our total length of almost 50 ft. When we disconnected we parked sort of across the asphalt pad. They have upgraded some of the full service sites and they appear to be very nice and are longer in overall length. - DpGraham727

Off-season stay, so no attendant at checkin booth. Reservations made online. Detached toad so we could drive through park to find our site before moving our coach. Roads are tight coming in to park, but manageable. Site was smaller than expected, but fairly easy to level. 50 amp and sewer worked fine, water pressure a little low. Ranger arrived shortly after we got in, very courteous, explained a few rules and was gone. Loop C was very quiet, but that probably changes when full season hits. Large trees in this loop make site selection critical if you want satellite reception. Ours (#1) was fine. Did not utilize other park amenities this trip. Overall, French Creek met our needs for the visit we were on. - Movgfwd

This is a very nice campground. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Upon booking I was told that I should make sure that I had at least 50 feet of fresh water hose because the hook up was a good distance from the campsite where we were booked. Upon arrival at the campground we checked and was then escorted to our campsite. It was after sunset so that was greatly appreciated. I don't think I would have found my campsite without the help. The staff also brought up a 50 foot fresh water hose and it's a good thing too as my two 25 foot hoses together would have been three feet short. the campsite itself was pretty deep and very wide. One of the nice things about their website is if you click on the campsite it will show you the actual campsite, usually several pictures. My campsite was all gravel, the size of the gravel was on the smaller size. The campsite was no very level from side to side, it was a challenge leveling. There were many seasonals there, but they were well maintained. The store was not well stocked but that might be because it was approaching the end of the season. The campground was very wooded so the campground name fits. Water pressure seemed a bit low. Electricity worked fine, no apparent line sags. The last thing is the interior roads were very tight, trees close to the road edge making traversing them a little difficult. There were also several rocks near the edge of the roadways. - Tim W

The electric and sewer hook ups were centrally located. the water was located between sites, so one person used about 10' of hose while the other needed at least 45'. The sites were level. the water pressure was very low (28#'s). This is an older park with a lot of overhanging branches and very tight turns for larger rigs. - Al and Anne-Marie

This is my second weekend stay here and I will be back. I took advantage of the new "virtual full hook-up" and it worked well. I was able to use a site that did not have sewer, which expanded my possibilities. They do not have a lot of sites with sewer hook-ups, I imagine because the place is built on rock. They come around daily to take gray water and on Sunday to empty both gray and black tanks. This went off without a hitch.
The campground is in the woods. The sites were decent size and gravel. Hook-ups were well-placed. There is no WiFi, but I had no trouble using 3G, and in fact is was as quick as the WiFi in my house for my usual Internet surfing. The site and campground in general were quite clean. It is fairly quiet and relaxing.
The only con was the shower, which is very low flow and makes showering quite lengthy and unenjoyable. Attention campgrounds! It takes a certain amount of water to rinse. You can low flow it or you can low pressure it, you can have faucets that constantly need to be turned back on throughout the shower, but it's still going to take the same amount of water to rinse my hair!!!
I will be returning here. - Driver25

Served its purpose of being near the Allentown area. If full, the sites are very tight but fortunately, we were the only RV there. Nice swimming pool. Miniature golf course available. Grounds of the mobile home park are very nice. Campsite is just a gravel driveway. - Siestacheryl

A nice park, nothing special. The laundry bath and shower are all combined and very hot in the women's. Very well kept park with nice open spaces for kids and dogs to run. - Psushu

Thorpe (45 min). Easy off the highway but due to the proximity to the highway, that's your view and it comes along with the noise. The park is luscious green and clean. The bathroom is a bit of a hike from the back of the park and the trash is also located by the bathroom so neither are very convenient. There were small trash cans for doggie bags so at least there's that. The sites are level and crushed gravel. Besides walking around the park, there are no hiking or biking trails. The sites were pretty close together with a bit of a parking lot feel but not super small. There was enough room to sit out and enjoy yourself. The staff that checked us in was friendly but there's a full time worker here that rides around on his lawn mower or golf cart all day. He literally did a drive by through our site with his mower while we were sitting there trying to enjoy a beer. He went back and forth multiple times, kicking up grass on us, missed the dogs by about 6 inches. It was rude and completely uncalled for. 50 amp FHU was strong with excellent cable channels. The wifi was actually usable and remained reliable throughout our stay regardless of what time of day it was. Hot spots were also good. Verizon at 28d/l and ATT at 40 d/l unboosted. - Jessie1975

Located near Route 78, this campground is "big rig" friendly. We have a 45' motorhome and can get around this campground fairly easily. Sites are gravel and usually easy to get level on. Grassy areas are between sites with a tree or two between. The owners are friendly and helpful. - JC06

The rate I noted is based on monthly. This is my second summer at Oak Grove; I call it "my little hamlet". It is a mobile home community with a large area for RVs in the front. Most of the RV spots are full timers or seasonal but if you are lucky you might just get a spot for the season or however long you choose to stay. It is nestled in an old oak grove--thus the name-- with pasture land on two sides of it. The park itself is well maintained--extremely well maintained. Several maintenance crew members are working five days a week supervised by the park owner. It is close to shopping and more shopping and dining and the post office or anything else you might want. Super clean restrooms and showers and the same for the laundry room with plenty of washers and dryers and bargain prices. There is a sparking clean swimming pool. My only complaint and it of course does not reflect on the park or its management, are the bugs--I hate bugs. But what can you expect in a humid grove of trees? They happen to be in abundance in my spot--other residents tell me they have no problems. The cool of the evening is the best time to sit outside but it is mosquito time so I do not spend much time doing that. But it does have great streets for bicycle riding so bring your bike. And of course, with the bugs come birds--song birds in abundance in early summer. If one is parked by the road the street traffic could be a problem but my spot is three rows in and it is generally not an issue. Site is reasonably level but I had to level a little on one side--utilities easy to access and cable is available. You will need cable for internet as they no longer offer wifi. Of course Verizon wifi works well here. People come back here season after season. It is a lovely, lovely park. Make your reservation early. - nanzhere

This is the second time we stayed here. The sites are back in but easy to negotiate. We used our antenna to get all the major TV channels. They do not have cable service. WiFi is available near the office and worked well. The drive to many of the local attractions is about 40 to 50 minutes. Some nice local mom & pop restaurants and pizza shops. Try Vinny's just down the road 5 minutes. - RVBill1063
