We stayed here over race weekend and for a campground that is 2 miles from the track it should have been packed, but it was not full at all. We had to move to a different site because the one we were in was uneven and the auto level for the motorhome wouldn't level us. The second site wasn't much better but we leveled. The site itself was tight and we had no space on the side to set up chairs. With only 20 amp service you can't run electric water heater and a/c without blowing a fuse. We were only able to get 3 channels on TV via the antenna.The roads are narrow and to exit our site to leave campground I had to back up twice in order to make the turn. The interior roads are in need of some repairs.Some people who were registered guests had to leave their car in parking lot and walk to there site because there was no one to let them in when they returned from race at 7 o'clock. The campground made no arrangements to get these people in. The mini golf course is poorly maintained and not worth the money to play. If you are going to the race and do not have to spend to much time in the campground, this place will be OK, otherwise I would find someplace else. - Tom M

We just arrived home from our camping trip in the Poconos. We had a great time at the campground. The bathrooms were super clean and the staff were very friendly. I love going to a campground that has trees and is not a field. This was a true campground and allowed us to really enjoy nature. We even saw some deer, lots of chipmunks, turkeys, and rabbits during our stay. The sites can be tight if you do not know how to back in and it did take us a couple tries to get into our site, but it was very worth it. Our site had a beautiful rock wall and fire pit. My kids had a great time too. We hiked up to the tower and once you get up there, there are so many hiking trails to take. The swimming pool is only open for the afternoon, but the weather isn't really warm enough to go in the evening or morning. We had a great time and we booked another weekend for August. I would recommend this campground to anyone! - campinglori

If being in the woods is what you like in a campground then this is the campground for you. The sites are of various sizes and shapes and blend well with the geography of the area. The pool is also very nice. They have gated access and card keys are available for a deposit on non-race weekends. If you don't wish to leave a deposit for a key you must walk in to your site after office hours. The proximity to Pocono Raceway seems to dictate much policy at this campground, but a non-race weekend is very serene. The staff was friendly and they have a full service RV store. We would definitely camp here again. - mojo894

The raceway purchased this campground a couple years ago and have done a lot of renovations. Bathrooms and showers were clean, grounds were clean. Pool looked nice, didn't use. Some sites are tight and the septic was raised in some. Still even with those problems, it was better than camping at the track where there are no hookups. campground is about a mile away and didn't run into any problems getting to and from the track. Interior roads were either gravel and asphalt. Room for big rigs. Sprint worked ok, got 8 over the air TV stations. Quiet hours were observed. Ice was $5 for a 20lb bag. Rating based on its a basic place to stay for the race, tightness of some sites. Wish they would add a campground for the kids. Definitely will stay there next year for the race again. - acenorm

We stayed here in our 5th wheel for the NASCAR races, and enjoyed ourselves very much. My GPS brought us here on back roads, but we eventually found the CG. Many of the sites are on a slope, so be prepared to extend your levelers quite a bit. For full hookups, you will only have 30 amp service. For 50 amp, there is no sewer. The CG is very pretty and convenient, being only about 1 - 2 miles from the track. We would stay here again. - Gus the Fireant

This campground is all about the location. It is approximately 1 mile from Pocono Raceway and is a preferred destination for some race fans. I chose this campground while spending the weekend at the NASCAR race for the pool and FHU, neither of which are available at the track infield. While the pool is small, it was very clean and met expectations. The hookups have several sites sharing posts. A little inconvenient. The sites closest to the road are the most developed. The remainder are really situated in a large, grassy field. No pads and virtually no access roads. Very few of the sites are level. The restrooms were adequate, but over used and staff wasn't able to keep up. There is ice and firewood available, but no camp store. In their defense, they state that starting in 2013 major renovations will be taking place and they are actively seeking user input as to which amenities are most important. If attending the races I would stay here again; otherwise probably not unless I just needed an overnight stop. - Eyegor

Hickory Run State Park campground looks like an old-fashioned campground in the PA State Parks system. Loops are gravel and meandering. Thickly wooded camp sites. Really nice if you like the woods. Restroom buildings are older and need maintenance. (Tile coming off in showers, one shower not producing hot water) There is an open air loop (basically a field) on the east side. If I had a big RV, I would go there. A large amount of campers are from New York and New Jersey. - kanling

We were here early in the season. The park is not well-suited to RV's. There were several places where tree branches were left to grow over the roadways at a height that interfered with our TT. We are only 10' 6" tall, but the branches were still an issue. Aside from that, we had a nice stay. Lots of sites. Quiet. Friendly people running the place. You have to see the Boulder Field! Price reflects a non-hookup site and senior discount. - eduJamesE

Older campground with mostly seasonal campers. We were treated great during check-in. Wi-Fi is secure but doesn't work at the campsite. - Bburgbrewer

This was just an overnight stay for us. We received a GS + a cash discount. The campground is in the woods, deep woods. I am not sure we would fit excepts in the overnight spots. A lot of permanents(weekend type) so happy we were there during the weekend. A typical family cg. Easy in/out, close to hwy. - Wandering

We called ahead and there was a pull-site available. The site had a picnic table, but was so small that the table was right next to the coach. It was full hook-ups, but the sewer drain wasn't covered. Most of the people that stay here are either long term or permanent. These sites were better maintained (not all, though) than the available sites. Wonder if the long term/permanent renters maintain their own sites....
Our site was not even close to being level (we could never get the coach leveled, even in manual mode), the gravel was mostly washed away and the mud washed through the camp in the rain. Lots of standing mud. Thankfully we have an outside mat, but it was caked with mud, so getting in/out of the coach was still muddy.
Lots of trees for shade but, not trimmed. Low hanging branches and limbs in the site were not trimmed at all. Tall weeds, except in the roadways.
We were out walking and wanted to use the restroom, but it was so filthy that we wouldn't even go in. Completely disgusting.
The owner was nice enough (that's why it got a two) at check out, but was not around at all during our stay. The office was always closed.
We chose this campground because it was somewhat close to our friends' homes but, we would rather drive further than ever stay here again. - Endeavor Driver

We have stayed at Hemlock a few times over the past few years and we are never disappointed. It is a quiet, smaller sized campground which we prefer rather than the resort type. All the weekender sites are well groomed and the whole campground is fully shaded, which comes in handy on hot and humid days. There is plenty to do and see in the area. The owners are friendly and personable. We look forward to going back in September of this year. - pokey

Very clean quiet campground. Has planned activities.close to many of the pocono offerings. Owners are superb. Majority of sites are seasonal. Short stay sites are roomy no well kept. - Smokinlen

Campground: Road access off I-380 can be tricky on most direct route, as there is one bad, tight, dipped turn in the small town that big rigs should avoid. My RV GPS did correctly route us around that. Stayed here in the pet loop in a 33-foot long fifth wheel. Not too many pet sites in park. Had a 50A only site. Campground road is paved. Crushed stone sites, fairly level, with good spacing between sites and scattered mature trees. Watch out for dead branches though. Sites had picnic table and fire ring. Water availability is a real drawback. One place to fill up tanks at dump station on entry road to campground, and I can see it getting very congested and backed-up there in prime season, same for using the dump station on way out. (Was a cold rainy week in early may for us, so we had no issues.) In campground proper, water availability even worse, with only places being at restroom building and at stand practically in the camp hosts site. Very long walk for those on ends of loops. Bathrooms were clean, with good hot water and showers. Had laundry machines there, but we did not use them, so no idea if they are working and maintained. Looked new though. I might stay here again in off season, but not in prime season. Park: Loop trail around lake very nice, can be hiked or biked. Decent size lake for kayaking or canoeing, and of course fishing. - We Roamed and Rambled

We were there in a crowded holiday weekend. That said, we were disappointed. They had you sign a sheet with the pet rules as well as other paper work, but we found that the rules were not enforced. Dogs barked constantly, were left alone, & charged us as we walked our dog. We complained but nothing was done. Large groups of people congregated in some campsites and were very loud late into the night. The pull through site we had was entirely too short and difficult to get into and out of. Our 38 ft. 5th wheel hung into the driveway, and luckily we stayed a day after the weekend or we would have had trouble getting out of our site due to trucks and vehicles parked in roadway. We would not come back here again. - padre

We stayed here for 4 days in site HH20 which was very level. It's a great end unit facing the woods. Deer came out one night to eat. The entire stay the CG was so quiet and relaxing! The camp store is nicely stocked and fairly priced. Everyone was so nice and we met several very nice seasonals. Mount Airy casino is about 3 miles away and Mohegan Sun is only about 30 miles away. We went to both and they were nice as well. We had 80 cable channels and wifi was fine. AT&T service was not an issue.
I have nothing negative to say, we will definitely be back again next year. The owners live on site and will take no crap from unruly people which is nice to know!
This is important! When you get to the town of Mount Pocono and the weird intersection make sure you are in the MIDDLE lane. There are three lanes , two left turn lanes and one right turn lane. You must be in the middle lane! You'll see what I'm talking about when you come up to that intersection.
Enjoy your stay and remember "It beats staying home" - grs34

Road is a little dusty coming in but the CG is very pleasant and well maintained. Owners on hand are very nice and helpful. Most units are permanent but very well maintained like second homes. We had a level, gravel site, HH26. Room between sites is ample. Electric service and water good. Picnic table and nice fire pit. Nice pool, play area, fitness center, ping pong , volleyball and badminton available. Great wifi. We came in to spend one nite but stayed for 4. Would definitely stay again. - Team Asphalt

Non-existent signage. Not clear how to access the park's gate. Very tight, gravel interior roads. The place is clean and well landscaped but the sites are very tight to get in and out of. The laundry was clean but very expensive. The staff was cordial and helpful. The majority of the units in the park are either permanent or long stay. The place is in an unusual location. As your GPS takes you there, you wonder whether you are going to get into a place you cannot get out of. The roads in the area are steep, narrow, crooked and very rough. - Ras2

The sites are wooded and shaded with ample room. There is limited 50 amp service available. I was there with a 40' fifth wheel for only one night and made do with 30 amp and only one A/C unit. The staff were extremely helpful and courteous. I left a fresh water y-valve and pressure reducer on the spigot when I left. They were kind enough to notify me by email, then mail the valve to my home. That level of service was beyond my expectations. - Charles Thrasher

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

This place was a little tricky to find but, glad we did! It's all wooded with a small lake and just a few amenities, good old fashioned camping. This place is not for big rigs but, the sites are decent size, bath house was reasonably clean and close to all sites and had lots of showers. It's quiet, away from traffic, maybe a best kept secret! - 88camper

This is the worst campground I've ever been to in my life. Website shows nice pictures of the playground, pool , and gameroom. Those pictures had to be a couple years old. Gameroom is closed and full of junk. Pool was a nice shade of green. Playground was not taken care of and missing different pieces. The bathrooms weren't cleaned except dumping the garbage and the showers were pathetic. Two of the seven shower stalls worked; however, they were filthy and no hot water. Sites were a decent size but not taken care of. Broken picnic tables throughout campground including ours and exposed steel thru-out coming out of the ground from falling apart retaining walls. This is a real hazard to children. I would not go back here if it was free. For $28 I expect more. Its worth about 5 bucks. And lake in picture is only a pond , roads throughout were terrible. - Jim Carp
