I agree with everything others have said. Big beautiful scenic campground with lots of activities and road in is a nail-biter for big rigs. Bathrooms could be taken care of a little better and definitely need some updating! (Same dead bug on the floor for 3 days before someone finally mopped). BUT, while I do understand the need for seasonal residents, I wish there could be a designated area for them. Seasonal campers are scattered all over the campground. Some trailers really need to be cleaned up and repaired, others just look like cheap gift shops with lights, flags, spinning plastic flowers, plastic animals, gnomes, trolls, flags, etc. - grumpysgal
Otter Lake was a perfect fit for the week! The Pocono Mountains area is beautiful. Looked for a few weeks for a vacation rental or resort or hotel that would accommodate our black lab. In the end, we chose to take the rv and take a camping trip instead. Cost was about 1/2 compared to hotel (and that includes gas) Plus we got to sleep in our own bed and have our bestest furry kid along with us for the week! This camping resort was very busy. Lots of families. They have an indoor pool, an outdoor pool, a beautiful stocked lake that campers can also use for canoe, pedal boat and row boat rentals! The camp store has the basics and a few gifts too. Daily antique fire truck rides are a trademark of theirs. Cute & Classic. We had full hookup, including cable & wi-fi at our site!! Our site was spacious and shaded. Perfectly picked right across from the lake front beach area. All roads are well maintained. Clean campground. True family camping at it's best! I wish we would have stayed when our daughter was young! We would highly recommend this camp resort! The only complaint I can think of is the 7 mile winding back road to get there was a bit much. We did travel out to get a "good meal" for our anniversary. Alaska Pete's was the closest. If the campground had a restaurant, we would have stayed. They do have ice cream, so we did enjoy dessert a few times! One of the best camping trips I have ever been on! Would love to go back! - patti&charlie
It had been 7 years since we camped at Otter Lake. Finally returned and felt like we were stepping back in time. Everything was just as it was 7 years ago, clean, friendly and full of fun. Need to watch on the 7 mile ride on the local road. Very winding, bumpy, and somewhat narrow for trailers. Bathrooms/showers were clean. Did not use either pool but many others did. All roads are paved and sites are pretty level. Sites are pretty roomy and shaded. The lake is beautiful with canoe, row boat, paddle boat and kayak rentals. The only reason I gave an 8 rating is due to the narrow roads off the main road. Also, Wi-Fi and cell service are not good. Will definitely return again, only much sooner this time. - Kim B.
