We visited three sites before they finally offered one we could wriggle into. The escort was very nice and apologetic about the hassle. This campground is very dated and the roads are narrow and cluttered. It is definitely not Big Rig friendly. We camped at Honesdale / Poconos KOA in a Motorhome.

This could be a very nice park, needs more work. K-9 corral was substandard, very high grass. The small fishing pond was more of a park run off area and our site area could have been considered a swamp with main sewer lines running above ground. It took us six tries to get the FW in a spot where we wouldn't step out of the steps and into a ditch. Neighbor's site was even worse because of the ditch and swamp. Spoke with the owner, who seemed very genuine in improving the site with the idea that I presented him. There were power troubles, but I have become accustomed to that on major weekends and warm weather. However, the 'heated' pool was not only small but freezing cold and you couldn't see the bottom. A small slide for kids always had an adult holding it as it would wobble a lot each time a kid went down. There was also a great deal of tiles missing on the side of the pool including some that I stepped on and took out of the pool. There were lots of activities for the weekend, candy bar bingo was fun, DJ (cheesy), game room (small selection), mini golf (wooden if you know what I mean), bounce pad open a few times a day, 'dry' tube slide (better when it was wet from rain). Store was adequate but pizza was good. Probably won't return or encourage anyone else to go there. We camped at Honesdale / Poconos KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Paid top dollar for a pull thru 50/30 amp site. The site was not level and once my RV was in place there was very little room for family use. Just enough room for my 9' mat to put the table under the awning. Staff was very short when asked questions about camp site. Also, the site picnic table's paint was peeling and the wood was old we were worried about splinters. Staff said they would fix or replace and that was the last I heard from them. Seasonal site are unkept and the dog park is loaded with weeds and poison ivy. Cars were speeding thru campground and nothing was done. Do not stay here. Nothing to offer. Wifi does not work and there are power outages. Trash was too full to use. We camped at Honesdale / Poconos KOA in a Motorhome.

I called ahead for directions. Stay on the main roads! Owners are very friendly and helpful. Took us to our pull-through site. The pool is beautiful. They have a bounce thing and a waterless slide. The dump is not angled well, so we backed into a sewered site to dump instead. The camp road and a bit rough on the way into the park, but the park is very nice. Site was flat. We did not unhook. The owner helped my pop back in site 28 and set up making sure his side missed the electric box! We were upgraded to a pull-through with no extra charge. I think they needed our assigned site for someone else. No complaints here! We camped at Honesdale / Poconos KOA in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed in a full hook-up site near the front of park. The pool is small but clean. They have activities all day for the kids. Staff and other guests are very polite and helpful. We camped at Honesdale / Poconos KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Campground is very difficult to reach. Office staff was so, so friendly. Lots of rules. Site was level. Rate was high even with KOA discount for what was available. Looked to be mostly seasonals which occupied the shady sites. Would not consider this campground to be one that I would stop at in the future. It is not close to major highways so you might just want to pass this one up if it's not your destination. We camped at Honesdale / Poconos KOA in a Motorhome.

This is now the Honesdale/Poconos KOA. We did not like this park at all and would never stay here again. We paid the most expensive rate we've ever paid for a KOA cabin, and it was little more than a plywood shed that was old, dirty, and smelled. With a padlock on the door to boot. The people who checked us in were friendly, and they are a new KOA campground, but it doesn't meet the standards I've come to expect from that brand name. Gravel roads and sites, the pond is stagnant water, and the pool itself was dirty and filled with dead insects. We camped at Honesdale / Poconos KOA in a Campground Cabin.

The park address is Honesdale but it is really in the middle of nowhere about a 10-15 minute drive from Honesdale. If you want to go, see and do things in the area, then you will be driving a lot. We went to Lake Wallenpaupack during the day and spent a lot of time in the car. The staff was very friendly and so were the seasonals. It was a quiet campground. We used the pool and played miniature golf. We stayed in site 35 and it was a tight fit getting the trailers in and out due to other's cars. We were waken in the night and asked to move our car so a Class B could back in to the site diagonal to us. Because of the distance and the musical cars to get others in and out we wouldn't stay here again. We camped at Honesdale / Poconos KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Beautiful park, very friendly owners. Kids had fun. Pig roast was fun. Ask for a site next to Flo, a seasonal. She's a hoot. We camped at Honesdale / Poconos KOA in a Motorhome.

The owners of the campground really care about their park and their family. They have children who are right there to help you with whatever you need. It is so nice in this day and age to see a family that cares about each other and works together to be the best they can be. This is a great park. You should check it out. We will return again.

It was an okay place to stay. We don't believe we will stay here again. The sites weren't level, there wasn't that much to do. Our kids didn't have fun which made our weekend miserable. We camped at Honesdale / Poconos KOA in a Tent Trailer.

The rate quoted was Passport America rate. The new owners (18 months) are trying so hard and working constantly to improve their facilities. They have added sewer to some sites and created pull thru (although not huge pull thru) sites. They work non stop. My initial reaction to this campground was extreme displeasure as we tried for over an hour to get level on our site ~ this was a newly created site with a great deal of stone that just kept sinking as we lowered the jacks! It ended up being comical, to a fault. We enjoyed the peace and serenity of the property enough that we extended our stay by four days! It seems that perhaps that a majority of the sites are seasonal's but during the week the property had only three other sites occupied! Everyone was very very friendly - the office/owners were so helpful and accommodating and the seasonal's were very very friendly. We would absolutely return here. The town of Honesdale, although six or seven miles from the campground was a wonderful little town with a lot to offer. We camped at Honesdale / Poconos KOA in a Motorhome.

We camped here for 2 months. This place is great! They have themed activities for the kids, free or nominal cost. Some seasonals. The pool was nice, but definitely not heated as advertised! The holiday breakfasts/dinners where they provide the food, has proven to be a waste of money because they always run out and you are out of luck even though you paid. They seem to pinch pennies alot here, but laundry facilities are inexpensive. So all in all, nice place. Would stay again, made lots of friends.

This campground is family owned and operated and they take great pride in their park. They are very friendly and cannot do enough for their campers. We have camped here many times and will definitely go back. The campground is far enough from town to be nice and quiet, but close enough for shopping and sightseeing.
