This campground is one of the few available in the Delaware Water Gap, perhaps the only that will accommodate campers. The park is simply "ok" - it will not "wow you" for sure. Meanwhile the location is perfect for exploring the region. I believe the campground has a lot of potential. Yet it doesn't seem to be promoted very much... There are recent reports of a new shower and bath house having been approved for construction. That's great news. Generally speaking the entire place could use an update. The best sites for camping are tent sites only located right up against the river. Camper sites with power and water are located closer to the entrance. The sites are decent size. The staff was friendly... the water pressure was low... The canoe service was not operating yet in April despite the great wether. - Jim and Ben

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

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

This was Labor Day. The roads were a war zone. The electric was 30 amps. The water was in a Boil Advisory. The pool was heavily chlorinated and the "beach" was closed and had been for years as we found out. The staff was arrogant and belligerent. The internal newsletter was filled with "don't" do items. For this, residents pay $3,000 a year in fees and taxes plus could not use the land they own more than 1/2 year, as we were told. We have felt more welcome in WalMart lots. It is cheaper to be a guest but why would you want to? - _LongTermCamper

We couldn't wait to get out of here. The rest rooms were old, smelly and had slippery floors. I slipped and fell in one. "Rustic" would be an improvement. Outhouse is more accurate. The roads were pot whole riddled dirty. The staff was arrogant and downright nasty to us and to owners in the campground. The security left of with the feeling we were inmates. - _LongTermCamper

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

This campground is a full nature park! Very primitive sites, but spacious! Hiking was plentiful and other campers very friendly. - jugs6686

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

To say it was a Hooverville would be polite. Filthiest restrooms I've ever seen in a campground. I asked the person who checked us in where would be the best place to view the Delaware Water Gap. Her reply, "I don't know; I just work here." There's cable TV, but you need to call cable company days in advance to set up. I was only there 1 night and that was too long. Avoid this place if you can. - NJMom

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

The sites were level, but very close to others. The hook ups were centrally located. The showers had plenty of hot water, were clean, just old. The entrance had several low hanging branches that hit the top of the RV. - Al and Anne-Marie

This park is good for an overnight stay, if you are planning to visit Milford or Port Jervis, or if you want to recreate on the river. The spaces are tightly packed and the place is very busy. It was a bit tight getting into my spot as they had cones to block off an area that I needed to swing around to get in--and I am just 24 ft. The other spots look easy enough to get into. The site was not level but not too bad. My Verizon worked well. - nanzhere

Did not have high expectations for this park and I was right. We chose it for an overnight because of advertised wifi and cable TV. There was NO wifi at our rig... about 150 ft. from the office. "Connected but NO INTERNET" was the message we received on two devices and on the office porch as well. What is also not mentioned is that there is not much phone service here either so you can't use your data plan.
OK...so we'll just watch the cable news on TV and go to bed. NOPE. Not a single cable news channel in the bunch they offer. Also all are digital channels so if you have an older rig...you won't be getting any...the nice lady at the front desk warned us about this...but she was surprised there was no CNN, MSNBC, HLN, FoxNews or Bloomberg.
It was pouring rain when we got there...site was a nice pull through in a wooded section... but it was a mix of mud and gravel. 30 amp service ONLY available and no FHU. Won't be back. - Camaraderie

We have a 40 foot coach. This park is rated as "big rig friendly," and when we called to see if they had space for a 40 foot rig, they said yes. Technically this is true, I suppose. Our site was plenty long enough to park both the rig and toad. But getting to the site, and into the site was a nightmare. The roads are narrow, rutted, bumpy, and edged by trees (think forest) and rocks. We had to back and fill to get into the site, and got hung up on a rock trying to get in. I told them at the office about this, and a very nice lady there did apologize, but then told me, "other people have done it." Yes, and we did it too, but never again. - ZoAnn

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

Litter not picked up, dumpsters overflowing, grass needs mowing, camping sites need police call, roads need repair, tree branches need to be picked up. Maintenance people driving around in golf carts and sitting in them doing nothing. Management not supervising the workers, and there seems to be no standards that have to be meet. Buildings smell musty. Will not be returning. - gafidler

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

Upon arrival, no workers were available to check us in. Luckily a worker from Timothy Lake North was there and was able to assist us. We had reservations so that really surprised me that no one was available. My husband and I both used the bathrooms and found them to be dirty and unkept condition. We will not be using the showers! Sites were OK, but in need of yard care and tree trimming. Very disappointed! - 1st time fulltimer

Friendly check in, clean grounds. A fair seasonal contingent and some weren't too nice looking, but overall very nice park. Office staff very friendly and accommodating with receiving mail/packages as full timers. Used pay WiFi (Fastwave) for $24.95/2 weeks and it was steady and reliable at 3MB down and .5MB up (tested several times, always consistent). Also did the cable TV at $18/week but only 40 channels and proprietary so no TV guide of any type. Saw several deer in the park. Roads leading to park are tight and winding with a 41'DP and Jeep in tow but OK. - HomeOnWheels_US

Some of the wooded spaces are a little narrow for a modern RV with slides. There is ample room to correct this but it has not been done. There are a fair number of open spaces for those who want satellite reception. Water pressure is low. Our site was level. Some are not. There is a nice pool but the lounge is not open except when the store is open. Road to the park is winding and hilly. Verizon reception is two bar 4G. Well less than half the spaces are annual so there is plenty of choice for the traveler. All sites are full hookup 50 amp. Cable and wifi are available for a fee. Interior roads are paved. However there are a few potholes that need patching. - BobWW

Outstanding customer service! Park is heavily tree'd, so satellite reception was difficult in many sites. Paved roads, with Gravel or grass sites. Major shopping 5-7 miles away. Close to Pa. state line.
Would definitely stay here again!
