Stayed during Memorial Day weekend which was very busy. Overall the park is very rustic but the bathrooms and showers are clean. The pool seemed clean. There's a large playground with basketball hoop, swings & sea-saw for kids. The staff was very nice, readily available and helped as needed. The staff was very easy-going and accommodating to last-minute requests and upgrading.

The site is a mixture of overnighters and people who stay with their RVs for the season. With all the campsites full on the holiday weekend, it was very tight. Power and water are available at many of the sites, and others are primitive.

I think this would be a very nice campsite on a quieter weekend. The game room was older with a pool table, air hockey & pin ball machine. It is not a campsite with Wi-Fi and all the amenities. Don't expect hours of entertainment in the game room. It's the kind of campsite that you would relax by the fire, perhaps read, nap on a blanket in the field, play frisbee & enjoy nature. We camped at Highland Campgrounds in a Truck Camper.

Directions to the campground were confusing, making it hard to find. It is quite a distance from grocery stores and gas stations. When I telephoned for assistance I got a recording. The facilities were minimal, the on-site staff was hard to find, the office was unattended and there was no answer at the posted telephone number, some of the interior roads were very steep, sites were heavily wooded. Our site a pull-thru horseshoe and not quite level. I would say that it was barely satisfactory for a short stay. We camped at Highland Campgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

Yes, this if out of town & in the woods. We called the park & the owner gave us good directions. Yes, the office, pool, bath & laundry are all on the top & you drive down a hill to the spaces. But it wasn't a problem. The spaces are back-ins, but long and plenty wide. I like that there is plenty of room between the rigs, unlike most of the places you stay. We camped at Highland Campgrounds in a Travel Trailer.

Following directions in the Trailer Life Directory left us lost. A phone call advised us one of their campground signs was missing causing us to miss a turn. This is all on very narrow, hilly back roads and now we needed to turn around, to get on the correct dirt access road and find the campground. Registered (see below) and then down a narrow steep dirt/gravel road that was less then fun; although backing into our site was a snap. Most all sites are in heavy wooded areas with little to no natural light. Had to use our trailer lights during the day. All services are back up this steep dirt/gravel access road including the pool, rest rooms, showers, laundry (1 washer/dryer) and garbage site. The garbage site had stuff all around and not a clean or attractive area. Trailer Life says this is a Good Sam park, but no signs posted either on the road or in the office area that I saw. Did not receive an itemized copy of my registration. Will not stay here again. We camped at Highland Campgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

Hard campground to find, make sure you get good directions. We had a very nice pull through site. The campground has a very nice woods feel to it. The facilities are a little aged but clean. We camped at Highland Campgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed for three nights in a pull through site. Office staff polite and helpful. Pool was clean and opened early when attendant done with testing/setup. WiFi only available at Office area. Cable TV would be nice since the over the air digital signals go in and out on most of the networks. Would consider staying there again when visiting people in the Scranton area. We camped at Highland Campgrounds in a Travel Trailer.

This is a very quiet park, a little out of the way for an overnight stop. It is a good location for visiting Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Since we were just overnight, we were directed to the one site by the bathrooms that had water/electric. The dump station was in back of that so in the morning we just had to back up to dump our tanks. The folks were very nice and accommodating. We probably would not stay there again unless we were going to the Scranton area. We camped at Highland Campgrounds in a Motorhome.

Highland Campground is one of the better parks we have stayed in Pennsylvania. It is a tad off the beaten path, but well worth the drive. Staff was friendly and very helpful. Our truck needed a jump and they were right there to help at no charge!! We also left behind some camping equipment that they were very good about mailing back to us. We brought our 4 small dogs who also were given a warm welcome including a free doggie snack. We are planning to camp there on our return trip. We camped at Highland Campgrounds in a Travel Trailer.

This campground is similar in appearance to many state parks, as the sites are buried in a forest. They are located at the bottom of a very steep hill which the staff cheerfully call heart attack hill. No problem except the wifi hot spot is at the top of the hill. I was overall very disgusted with the campground as I had been promised an electric/water site for my 35 foot motorhome. When I checked in I was told that the owner had made a mistake and that we could not fit into the site and we would need a larger site with sewer hookup, for $10 more. Then I was told the credit card machine was not working and so I paid cash. I asked for a receipt and the staff member, who did not want to give me a receipt, scribbled it on a credit card receipt. I felt like I had been conned. To add to that, we could not hook up the sewer because of its location. Most of the campsites are filled with permanent residents. Absolutely would not return again. We camped at Highland Campgrounds in a Motorhome.

Looking at their map, it shows 25 RV sites, (22 back-in, 3 pull-through, & 3 cabins). Not sure how many tent sites. Roads are not the best, but passable. Some sites are a bit hard to get into. Folks friendly & helpful. Very wilderness setting. Pool looked spotless! Playground with equipment for kids. We stayed here due to a tow vehicle problem, but would stay again if passing this way. We camped at Highland Campgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

We rented 2 sites for this weekend and one site did not have power because elec box was missing a weather proof cap, also the grass had not been cut in a while ,garbage was littered thru out sites including the fire rings , broken glass thru out site did not make these sites kid friendly at all, my first and last visit to this campground. Pool area was clean and so was playground. We camped at Highland Campgrounds in a Tent Trailer.

We have been seasonal campers for the past 2 years and have to say that it is by far the cleanest place we have ever stayed at. All facilities are spotless. All sites are graveled and shaded, and well spaced with trees in between each site. The campers that are there are friendly and considerate of each other. It is on the quiet side - the owner discourages wild parties and rowdiness - and it is a good place to spend a quiet night by the campfire. There is a playground for the little ones, a swimming pool and game room (although the teens might find the place a bit tame - a plus for us quiet-seeking folk). We'll be back next season for sure. We camped at Highland Campgrounds in a Travel Trailer.

The only Good Sam Park in the Scranton/Clarks Summit area. It is a nice, quiet, shaded park with very friendly staff. Sites were more roomy than other parks. Bathrooms were super clean, the pool spotless! We enjoyed our stay there. Would go again! We camped at Highland Campgrounds in a Travel Trailer.
