This is definitely NOT big rig friendly! We have been motorhoming for over 15 years and this was the worst park to from start to finish. They initially put us on a hilly lot and the jacks could not level us it was so off level. We then went to an electric and water only lot - which was fine with us - but leaving the park was another nightmare as the turns were very narrow with big boulders at the corners! Would not stay here ever again! And it is grossly overpriced. We camped at Delaware Water Gap / Pocono Mountain KOA in a Motorhome.

We had a pull through 30amp/water site. It was quite adequate and very level. It seemed efforts had been made to make all the sites as level as possible. The only complaint about the site is that the water was only plumbed about 5 inches off the ground. It made it tough to hookup a hose wit pressure regulator. It barely fit. I had to dig a hole under it to keep the hose from kinking. This seemed to be unique to our site. I looked around and most were higher off the ground. Otherwise the roads could use a bit of improvement but overall this is a very nice campground in a convenient location with a very helpful staff. WiFi got a bit suspect later in the day but cell signals were good. We camped at Delaware Water Gap / Pocono Mountain KOA in a Motorhome.

Camped here in a 35' motorhome with my two of my three daughters and five of my six grandchildren. We had two sites (one was a tent.) the price listed was for the MH which in my opinion wasn't cheap. There was a lot of activities for the kids and a well stocked store for pretty much whatever you needed. there was the Wurst Festival going on at nearby Shawnee Mountain which was an unexpected addition to the trip. We stayed on site 73. WiFi was non-existent on this site. The sites were narrow; however, they were mostly level and the site afforded me a great view of the southern sky for my Direct TV. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. They had a Christmas in July theme for the weekend which added to the grandchildren's overall enjoyment of the park. A 10 would have been earned except for the price. As I stated, I thought it was a bit steep. I highly recommend the campground. We camped at Delaware Water Gap / Pocono Mountain KOA in a Motorhome.

Stayed 2 nights as a stop-over. Had a new drive thru site with patio/firepit and wicker patio furniture provided. Up on a hill overlooking rest of park & was great. This is part of continued renovation by owner per the staff. Staff very friendly & helpful kudos to the rec director. Lots of families/kids;a little off the beaten path but a beautiful area. The roads within the park need a little better engineering directional sense. The other park sites are mostly grass but believe upgrades are forthcoming. Store is nice; did not use pool. Would stay again. We camped at Delaware Water Gap / Pocono Mountain KOA in a Motorhome.

This was the first campground we went to with our new travel trailer. The owner called us shortly after our reservation to advise us that there was a very large group of Russian emigrants that holds an annual get-together at the park the weekend we booked. She wanted to let us know that, since it was such a large group, the quiet hours would not be enforced and there would be ethnic type folk music playing well into the morning hours. The reason for her call was to make sure we still wanted to come, and she offered to move the reservation or refund our money. Being as my father-in-law is from Austria, we wanted to enjoy the music, etc. that this group had to offer, and we chose to keep our reservation. We were very impressed that the owner called to discuss this with us first - very courteous. We were not disappointed. The grounds were clean, the staff extremely nice and helpful, and the pool was great! Our pre-teen daughter and her friend basically lived at the pool. The people from the group were very nice as well. Now both our daughter and my father-in-law want to return each year for this weekend :) The ONLY reason I did not give a full 10 on the rating was simply because we just stayed at a campground in NY that was a little cleaner than this one. However, if there was a way to give this campground a 9 1/2 star, I would! We camped at Delaware Water Gap / Pocono Mountain KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Overnight stop for me so I will review it as such. Although this is a little far off Rte 80 for an overnight stop, there aren't many options in this neck of the woods for an easy on/easy off overnight so this is the best bet here. About 6 miles off of I-80. Be certain to follow their big rig directions from their web site or their reservation confirmation. Apparently, failing to do so is not a good idea. I followed the big rig instructions and have no complaints. Roads are fine. A few curves, but no issues for a tall 35 foot RV. Park is undergoing lots of site work and renovations. The 50 amp pull through sites are all new with new services. Good power, water sewer, cable, and WiFi. In fact WiFi and cable are exceptional. Sites are gravel and bigger than the typical KOA site. The 50 amp pull throughs are up a bit of a hill. Fairly level side to side, but some have a bit of a challenge front to back. Pool looked nice and it looks like there are a fair number of seasonal campers in another area of the park. Nice camp store and check in folks. Works very well for me as an overnight with all the bennies. I give the new sites a 9 and the park an 8 overall. We camped at Delaware Water Gap / Pocono Mountain KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

If there is a floor in which to qualify for a KOA this place is it. This place was literally still under construction. From cabins to the camp store/kitchen. They just weren't ready for the camping season and for the price you pay that's disappointing to say the least. This campground has very little to offer. The staff however was very friendly. We camped at Delaware Water Gap / Pocono Mountain KOA in a Campground Cabin.

The campground is very well maintained -- clean and modern baths and showers. We had a full-hookup site (#200) that was a bit small, but fortunately it was located on a corner so we were not sandwiched in between other campers. There are not many full hookup sites, although the new ones (on a hill to the left as you enter the campground) appear to be quite large but not shaded. Trees have been planted by they are still very small. It would really be nice if some of the water/electric sites in the rear of the campground were converted to full hookups. The sites are out-of-the-way, shaded and quite large. The staff is very nice and were very helpful when we had a problem with our propane line. The price of the new hose along with labor was very reasonable. We were disappointed in the dog walk (playground). This playground is in a hilly area. It needs to be larger and have some play "equipment" for the dogs. Relocating the playground down the hill where the broken kiddie train is would really be nice. Overall, a nice campground but we have seen nicer KOAs. I did hear a member of the staff saying that this is their first year here. Hopefully, they will continue to update and improve the facility. Nothing much they can do about the road to the campground. It wasn't a problem for us as we are pulling a 20' ft. trailer. I can't imagine driving a 42 footer but then that's how it goes if you want to have a big rig. I do think this situation should be mentioned on the website. It would be a good idea to warn folks.

Our rating of the campground would have been a little higher had it not been for the 'white knuckle' drive down the long street that passes by the campground entrance. DON'T follow the GPS if in a big rig because you will not make one of the extreme turns. Their website gives the best access, but they do not WARN you not to come the GPS way! Fortunately, we came the right way. But it was a half mile or more of driving twisting turns and low branches for our 42' rig. I can't imagine 2 big rigs passing each other going in opposite directions. It is also a good way from I-80. The park was OK. Typical KOA with lots of the usual amenities. There were many people swimming in a pool that seemed undersized for the size of the campground. There are many things for kids to do, so we understand the appeal. However we feel that they were way overpriced, as most other KOAs are - even with our KOA member discount. You typically get cable in KOAs, where others do not provide, but for $57.00 a night we didn't even get a sewer! Leaving the level gravel/pull through was a bit of a challenge, as well in this heavily treed campground. One of the turns on the way out was extremely tight. We had a lot of spectators with a look in their eye like "are they going to hit that branch or run over that large rock alongside the road?" I think without my many years of experience, the exit road is a mishap waiting to happen for big rigs. We will stay here again because it makes for a nice easy trip home the next day. And there is not much else to choose from in this area. We camped at Delaware Water Gap / Pocono Mountain KOA in a Motorhome.

When coming in from US209 on Hollow Rd there are two paved driveways at the park entrance, take the first one, the second is a private drive that doesn’t connect to the park. You will find ongoing renovations and landscaping when you enter so big rigs use caution. Office staff was friendly and helpful. We eased our 40ft Class A past the office on a hard packed gravel road to one of the 50amp/water pull-thru sites that was level gravel with grass, picnic table and fire ring. The site was a good sized and we had no problems with our 4 slides and awning. Medium trees are scattered through out the 50amp/water sites but few are big enough to interfere with your satellite. Sprint 3G phone and hot spot all worked well. The bathrooms were clean. There are very few full hookups in this park and all are back-ins, most of the park is 30amp/water. There are two dump stations in the park, big rigs use the one in the back. They also have a pump out service for longer term stays. We had no trouble with our rig, Jeep in tow getting to the back dump station and out of the park, but go slow as there are close trees on the road and some are leaning. We were only there for a quick overnight stop and didn’t explore the parks amenities so we cannot comment on them. We camped at Delaware Water Gap / Pocono Mountain KOA in a Motorhome.

Wi-Fi was iffy. Great staff. Clean park. They just added some very nice and big pull through full hook ups. Lots of things for the children. Would stay again. We camped at Delaware Water Gap / Pocono Mountain KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

The full hook-up sites are very close together - I could hear someone in the next RV snoring even with the windows closed. Some of the sites seem to be in low-lying areas where water accumulation might be a problem. The night we were there, quiet hours were not enforced - there was a loud unruly group who kept everyone else awake until almost 1 am, when the campground hosts finally shut them down. Would not stay here again. We camped at Delaware Water Gap / Pocono Mountain KOA in a Motorhome.

Another one of those "off the beaten path" campgrounds. It is a couple of miles down a narrow, winding road with cars "flying" up and down it. The campground was nice, with lots of shady spots, but they put us in a wide-open, no shade tree spot and there were lots of open spots all around?? Lots to do in the area, but we were only here a day. Would have liked to stay longer, might go back, but only if they give me one of those shady spots!

Ok place for a quick get-away if you're in the NYC area. Bathrooms were clean, if rustic. The water pressure issues experienced by previous reviewers also happened on the Labor Day weekend. Sites are a little on the small side. Staff was split between full-time on site and temporary help. Staff was excellent and helpful in all regards. A bit overpriced, since you have to pay for just about everything when you are here. We camped at Delaware Water Gap / Pocono Mountain KOA in a Travel Trailer.
