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. We camped at Mountain Vista Campground in a Motorhome.
Shaded park with tight spaces. Lots of trees which makes maneuvering through campground tricky. Like most northern campground we've been to, it's pack em and stack em. The better sites have long stay campers. Sites are not level. Could be a nicer park if they got rid of every other site. We camped at Mountain Vista Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a mountain campground with Level sites terraced in the mountain side. The sites are pea gravel under the rig with some grass and pea gravel on the remainder of the site. Road ways are gravel. There is plenty of natural vegetation between sites to offer some privacy without being jungle like. Lovely pool and plenty of activities for kids but quiet enough for adults. The owners are super nice and helpful. The only negative I found was the laundry room which was dusty and full of dead bugs. I took my own cleaning towels to wipe it down and all was OK after that. We camped at Mountain Vista Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice family campground in the Poconos. Friendly staff and owner is on site. Roads are gravel and a bit tight in some spots for a big rig, but certainly manageable if you take your time. They have lots of things to do and everything is kept clean. Water, sewer, electric, and cable all worked well. WiFi was usable and good Verizon 4G. Sites are mostly level with a slight grade. Plenty of trees. Nice place for a couple nights or a week. Give it a try! We camped at Mountain Vista Campground in a Motorhome.

Beautiful place with shady level sites carved in the side of a mountain. Utilities worked great for us, 50 amp was clean. Only stayed two nights as I'm traveling through. Will stop again. We camped at Mountain Vista Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice campground with lots of shade trees and very woody setting. Sites were nice size; cable TV very clear with good channel selection; wifi was very good on clear days, but unusable on rainy days. Grounds are very close to beautiful hiking in Delaware Water Gap Park. Cons: heavy automobile traffic through campground on weekend from permanent residents. We camped at Mountain Vista Campground in a Motorhome.

Heavily wooded park near Stroudsburg. Nice owners, decent sized lots, relatively level, and large pool. Nice games and free equipment (kids really liked playing ping-pong, tennis, also had a number of other games including giant connect 4...). Small pond for fishing, although we had no luck :-( . Scavenger hunt, bingo. Stayed there on Labor Day weekend - which even though it was very busy it was relatively quiet. Lots were crushed stone (no grass due to wooded area). Be aware that it is hilly - small children may have difficulty riding bikes. Why not higher rating? I base a point down for some of the following, which get higher marks on my other reviews. Unpaved roads (crushed stone), bathrooms not modern, bathrooms not particularly clean (checked a few times - including after their cleaning time), water pressure was very low at times - barely a trickle during morning of last day, seasonals not particularly well kept/landscaped, firewood purchased there was wet. Bottom line is we had a nice time, and would go back again. However even a 7 is a little high (since we liked the owners...) when compared with other places we have stayed. We camped at Mountain Vista Campground in a Motorhome.
Heavily wooded hillside campground, built into hill on tiers, overlooking woods. It's so wooded there is no sun. Gravel roads, a little tight but no problems, good cable. We used it as an overnight stay. Many sites were occupied with long term trailers, but most were neat. We camped at Mountain Vista Campground in a Motorhome.
We found this to be a great campground during a very hot spell. We elected to stay an additional night to enjoy the welcome shade. W/S/E were very good. Found no problem with electric with constant AC use. WiFi was strong and we found that the access codes worked until the time we had arrived the previous day. After registering for another day we found the access still working at check out. The public roads to reach the campground do have some tree branch issues, but traffic was light. A side note - cash only at check-in. However, ATM on premises charges $1.50 service charge, which trumps most banks. We will return. We camped at Mountain Vista Campground in a Motorhome.

Very nice, heavily wooded, hillside campground. Very peaceful even over Labor day weekend. Gravel access roads with somewhat level sites. No problems maneuvering within campground (37' plus toad), but we dropped our toad at the entrance. Entry road (Craigs Meadow) not trimmed side or top for large rigs - driving down the middle of the road necessary to avoid side scrapes and to minimize top scrapes. Power a bit low - 115v under load; water pressure very low (20 psi); sewer connections not threaded and some are slightly uphill; WiFi OK, but can be slow and is not available the morning of your departure; cable OK (sat not useable). Long list of restrictions on electric usage including no electric hot water, no washer / dryer usage. Washer / dryer restriction is due to being on well water. They are willing to waive this restriction outside of peak season (i.e. when they are not mostly full) - ask at office. We will stay here again when in the area. We camped at Mountain Vista Campground in a Motorhome.
Camped here over the 4th of July weekend. Picked this place based on the reviews on this site; the prior reviews seem accurate. Hilly campground, but generally level sites. Staff was consistently very courteous, which is a testament considering it was no doubt one of their biggest weekends. Bathhouse was clean enough, plenty of hot water the time I used the showers. Drawbacks for me was sites were packed close together, Wi-Fi was weak, and pool area has no shade available. Still, would definitely recommend, and stay here again. We camped at Mountain Vista Campground in a Travel Trailer.
This was our second visit to the campground. The staff continues to be extremely friendly and helpful. The activities, though geared for mostly children under 10, were organized. We were there for Christmas in July. I signed up my son with autism (although he is older than specified age. All children were given an age appropriate gift and called by name to see Santa. This was no additional cost! Church services were available on Sunday morning for those interested. This is a very hilly campground, but the sites are mostly level. The sites are mostly shaded. Out site, again, was on the small side, but we made do. There are larger sites available, we just didn't get one. That was a little disappointing. It is difficult to request a specific site, but something in the A, B or C area is better or you will be way up on top of the hill and there are no golf carts. The pool was beautiful, nice and clean but no shade. That's expected at a pool. Many decks to sit and enjoy the view, if it wasn't so hot. There is an outdoor fitness center for the older kids and a tennis court as well as two playgrounds, one in the shade. There is a lot to do in the area as well. We camped at Mountain Vista Campground in a Travel Trailer.
This park was way too hilly for me and dog walking. I missed the opening of a new dog park by a week. Pool was cold so never went for a swim. Cable okay and good Wi-Fi, but not impressed with the park in general, nor the area. We camped at Mountain Vista Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
We camped here for a week of Pocono fun. It happened to be 90+ degrees every day but certainly not their fault. Very hilly as others have stated but sites relatively level. Hook ups functional. Pool area tight and no shade but the kids didn't mind. Overall the kids loved everything: the activities, pool, playground (our site backed up to the playground). I probably would come back but I generally like to try different places and the Poconos is FULL of campgrounds. Just FYI, they don't take credit cards but there is an ATM on site. We camped at Mountain Vista Campground in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here one night on our way home from NC. This is a beautiful park, with excellent hookups, including Wi-Fi. Our site was level, roomy, and the location well thought out to allow for the most privacy. It rained all of the time we were there, so we did not have an opportunity to use the facilities, but this is a full service park with lots of amenities. The staff was pleasant and helpful. We would stay there again. One note - cash or check only. We camped at Mountain Vista Campground in a Motorhome.
