This is a large destination campground with lots to do. It is well staffed by friendly people who know their business. Its the first time I've actually seen the pool, hot tub and beach staffed with lifeguards at a private resort. Most of the interior roads are dirt with some paved roads with heavier traffic. It is an older campground that shows its age but most of the campgrounds in the north east are no better. The common grounds are well maintained but management could do a better job of getting some of the seasonals to clean their sites a little better. We stayed here for a month at the rate of $725 in season but the daily rate is over $40. The electric is only 30 amps which was a problem during the summer. The voltage tended to drop off during days with high heat. Cable TV in an internal analog only system with a poor signal on the lower channels. The Wi-Fi is a hot spot at a pavilion. The maintenance people indicated the owner is thinking of upgrading a portion of his park to 50 amps. If he does he will be one of the few parks in the area that would accommodate class A's with two A/C's. - D in Davie

Okay for a night or two. Staff was friendly and helpful. Park is more for park models/seasonal and tents. Price is for W/E only. - Minden Mike

Panther Lake is a well maintained but old facility a nice wooded park like setting with level sites. WiFi is only available at the pavilion. We stayed as fulltimers from April - October 2011 this was our first campground. The staff is helpful, friendly and responsive to requests. During the week campground is quiet but at weekends gets busy with lots of activities for guests. We enjoyed our stay here and will stop by again. - limey84

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

Camp Taylor is a very nice place to stay IF you like this type of CG. Looking for a Resort with all sorts of fancy stuff? DO you NEED a concrete pad, 100 channels of TV, High speed Internet, 47-11 things to do carefully orchestrated for you? Then you probably won't like this CG. If on the other hand, you like a somewhat rustic place, no street lights, no highway noise, trees, nature? Then you will like this CG. From here you can take hikes up onto the Appalachian trail and a few other feeder trails. You are in a Rural Area, it is not a 5 minute drive to Walmart! However there are a number of places nearby to visit, farm stores, flea markets, a few antiques stores. AND there is the Lakota Wolf reserve on the premises. This is a MUST SEE.
The CG itself, the sites are spacious, you are mostly shielded from the site immediately next to you. There is a stone fire ring, not an old rusty truck tire rim. There is water with decent pressure and 30 Amp electric at your site. You can back in far enough that you and your car are not hanging out in the road ways. We stay in the 'circle' area, on a clear night you can set up a telescope and see the universe! no light pollution here!
Some times the wolves will start to howl! An awesome sound. Yes there are Bears in the area, we didn't see any.
Do follow the directions on the website and not your GPS to get here. Your GPS will take you up some REALLY steep roads. Camp Taylor is worth the trip. The people running the Campground are very nice, yes they have some rules, if you don't like their rules, you probably have issues any place you go. They are not onerous and anyone that can't grasp the importance is likely someone you don't want to camp near! - blues traveler

Close to several hiking trails accessible from the campground- ask for map at desk... the site we stayed in was large... utilities worked well and the internet was fairly useful (and free). This campground is a great location for mild to serious hiking in the Water Gap and the Lakota Wolf Preserve is interesting as well... great place to stop for a rest / showers and recoup' if your hiking the AT. Campground is about 2 miles from the AT accessible via established trails.
No pool but there's a nice swimming pond that was very clean and refreshing. Great place to introduce kids to hiking or embark on a very serious one for yourself / experienced. Ask for free hiking maps at front counter. (Elevation / colored trails... excellent) My kid loved the trinkets and "gift shop stuff" a good hike deserves a reward! - Jim and Ben

Both the positive and negative reviews are correct in some ways. This campground is by a farm and has fishing ponds, small animals like small horses and goats, a nice pool, playground and dog park. The store is small but also sells ice cream and light food. Access is through High Point Park, a good climb off the interstate. The campground has many long-termers and is much like summer camp. The overnight sites are gravel and weeds and close to level. People are very friendly here and there are summer activities....tonight is a square dance. Its not like anywhere else we've stayed. It is in the country, activity (and not tourist attraction) oriented, quiet and spacious. It could be great, but I doubt it is worth the investment of improving the roads/sites to make it so. There are no real over the air TV stations available other than religious shows. We could not get any major network. We'd come back.. Why not, I loved summer camp as a kid. - Solem8s

Under no circumstances should you come to this campground for an overnighter. It is almost 10 miles off the highway down a small windy road. After paying $58 we were sent to the back of the park where there are a few pull-through sites, which are unpaved and even unmowed...a mess. We were surrounded by unoccupied park models and had no view. Fire pits in our section were full of trash. I didn't feel like digging through the plastic bags, etc. to get it ready for a fire. What a waste of money. We will never be back. - RVerMJ

Yes, I have to agree with other reviews, the views are amazing. However, this park is set up totally for seasonals, which isn't a bad thing it just doesn't cater to the one nighter. They to have some pull through sites and while they are plenty big they are very unlevel with very pronounced depressions next to the sewer inlet. We came here mostly because of the reviews, but I won't bother about coming back. It is a little out of the way and the entrance road is rather steep. I cannot in good conscious recommend this park to other than seasonals. - Jack&Wanda

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

We wanted to go to a local campground to try out our new TT. For some reason someone in our group of 4 travel units picked this place. We all agreed we would never be back. Our sites were located in the first section (just right of the entrance). All gravel sites -- all only 8 ft wide. Most were covered with weeds & grass had not been cut in 3-4 weeks. Several sites had poison ivy right at the water hook up. We did drive around and check the rest of the CG out. Mostly permanents - not even seasonals. All interior roads are in desperate need of repair -- full of bumps and gullies - barely passable in a truck, let alone pulling a 5th wheel or TT. LOTS of run down trailers in the CG -- some looked like they had not seen use in 10 years. Full of leaves, garbage, furniture tossed about the insides, etc. Rental units old and not maintained. Huge junkyard of trailers within site of interior roads. Dumpsters were jam packed and garbage was laying all over the ground - don't think they had pick-up within 2 months. Store had lots of stuff in it but not the basics - they did not have tea or sugar. Minigolf course was not maintained and unplayable. No activities. The pool was clean and there were a few people in it. I did not venture into the bathrooms. Overall I would say that this is the worst of campgrounds. Would ABSOLUTELY encourage everyone to find another campground. - jeanette b

This is an absolutely beautiful location but I would not stay here again. The drive into the park and the registration parking was on a very dangerous hill, not good if you don't have very good brakes. The site was again in a beautiful location but it was very unlevel. I have an automatic leveling system and it would not level the RV. I had to use it in the manual mode and still didn't get it right but acceptable for one night. The price, given the time of the year, was ridiculous. The hookups were not well placed, I had to move way forward to even think about hooking up to electricity. The water pressure was so low, I think if I had used a pressure regulator, it would have helped not hindered. I would have hated to have been here in the height of their season; there would have been no water. The road around the sites was very tight, if someone with little to no experience with tight places would have ruined their RV. The site was dirt with a little stone thrown in for the tourists. - Jack&Wanda

A clean, well-maintained park in a hilly area. Slight slope to most sites but easy to level. Good hookups, sewer old style non-threaded requiring rubber doughnut. Good cable, local channels plus NY and Philly sports teams. Gravel roads but not dusty. Lots of activities for kids, including fishing pond and panning for "gold". Moderate sized very clean pool. Small store with basics, bread/milk etc. Easy check in, friendly staff. Nature/fitness trail a plus. Only saw one other couple besides us without at least one dog. The RV across from us had five dogs in an outside pen, but the owners were attentive to quieting them when necessary. During the day we could almost always hear barking from one location or another in the park, but it was just background noise and not a deal breaker. CG is extremely quiet at night and we were there over a weekend. Heavy rain did not stop numerous campfire lovers from trying to burn wet wood. Enough smoke that we closed our windows and went with air conditioning the second night. A decent breeze and dry weather would have eliminated the issue. Overall this was a pleasant camping experience and we would certainly return. - valandmichaele

As always, a very enjoyable trip. Road to the campground can be adventoureous, but take your time and its no problem. Probably the best campground wifi I've ever seen, and it's free. Lots of activities and the store has all the basics and more. Excellent bike riding. We have kayaks now, so we can't wait till our next trip there. - Mike Jh

Great place for families. Lots to do, which is nice since it is pretty far from anything. This is the second time we camped here. It is clean, the spaces are large, and there are full hookups in most sites and water/electric in others. Very well kept and peaceful. - linda f

Kicked off the 2016 Camping Season for us over Easter weekend staying at Otter Lake for the first time.
We stayed in site LF10 which was conveniently located near the front of the campground; just off the main road. Site was adequate width with a near level gravel base. Site had great access to the lake and would be great for fishing. Tree branches did block any satellite signals; however with the campground cable we were able to receive over 70 channels. Hookups were mid site and very convenient. Verizon Wireless signal was not excellent but manageable. Campground had a few activities that the kids enjoyed for the weekend, such as indoor pool (which is a decent walk from the this site, but was worth it) firetruck rides, and Easter related events as well.
We will definitely make a return trip to Otter Lake in the future! - SJEAGLES609

Its just a parking lot for overnighters. We walked back into the true camping area and there were plenty of folks there, but it appears crowded also. The staff was great. The first site they gave us wasn't big enough and thankfully they were able to relocate us into a better spot. Definitely had to unhook to get into it. Lots of people and cars on the weekend because of the river activities. We were afraid we'd be blocked in so we left really early in the morning. Its about the only game in town so its ok for an overnight stay if needed. - Lucky Lady from Florida

The only good thing I can say about this park is that the staff were friendly and helpful. Other than that to call this place a rv park is a joke. There was NO space or privacy at all. You are parked on top of each other. Some spots you couldn't tell the difference between the parking lot and the camp site. Also , if it was any closer to the highway you would be sitting on the shoulder of the road. I guess if you have children and are into canoeing , rafting , paintball , and arcades the place is ok. But we wouldn't recommend this place and will never go back. - Jim - Carol

This is a convenient stop for an overnight on 209 or off 84. Nothing fancy. This is primarily a base for Kitatinny Canoe tours. There are many tent sites and a small number of pull through RV sites with W/E/C. Water and electric were very good. Cable is digital, so if you only have an analog set, bring a book. (There are no over the air antenna channels). WiFi was very weak, but did manage to check e-mail. The staff are wonderful and welcoming. We would stay here again. - demoon

Park office is 6 miles south of I-84. The road down is narrow but we had no problem with our 40' motorhome. Park roads are narrower, but doable if you take it easy.
Most people will probably go for full hookups at Pickerel Point, but we chose a 100' pull thru with 50 amp electric only in the Beechwood area. Most of the Beechwood area is short, paved, back-in sites with electric only. There are 2 long pull thrus at both the north and south ends. We had P2 at the north end. Both P1 and P2 were open enough for satellite but required blocking to level our motorhome front to back.
We enjoyed the remoteness and the quiet. Verizon had a weak but adequate data signal.
You can go to the Park website to find how sites are designed, and can also make online reservations. $4 extra charge and $4.50 senior discount. - camprats

Very nice park. Site Beechwood PT4 was one of four sites in this section that was big enough for us (43'). Most of other sites too small. Started out with a reservation for site 103 in Pickerel Point campground but it was very tight, maybe not doable, and the host suggested we try to move. We were lucky to be able to get a pull thru site because they are popular and reserved long in advance. 50 amp electric only, water at the park office or at a few spigots in the campground that need long hoses. Great dump station. Paved roads, pull thrus are gravel, all others in Beechwood are paved. Pickerel Point is all gravel. Note that part of Beechwood is no-pets. Lovely lake, great hiking. Good ATT cell data and surprisingly good OTA TV. - bobcovey

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
