Arrived without reservation and park was full. Owner chose to do something she had never done and put us on Delaware River frontage boondocking site for no charge. How can an owner be anymore kind and helpful. Visited with owner and learned they are in process of upgrading sites, adding few more sites and improving overall appearance. From my boondocking site I could see the marker where PA, NJ and NY meet. Wonderful site and enjoyed watching two Otters play and kayakers paddling down river. Pull through sites and roads are okay for Big Rigs. Husband & Wife owners along with son and staff were very friendly and helpful. Son explained the history of site back to the 1700 hundreds. I look forward to staying here again. We camped at Tri-State RV Park in a Motorhome.

Convenient off of I-84. Staff friendly and helpful. Park is severely over crowded with long term units. They are crammed in as tight as possible. Roads and sites are gravel. Some smooth and some in disrepair. The bathrooms and showers are clean but quite worn. We will avoid this park in the future. We camped at Tri-State RV Park in a Motorhome.

Way over priced for a gravel parking lot. Road into park in awful shape. Cable TV had very little to offer. 50 amp was fine.

BUT my husband had seen on the good Sam website they offered a military discount. Turned out the discount was for $1. Kind of a slap in the face. We camped at Tri-State RV Park in a Motorhome.

Great Electric pedestals for 50/30/20a. They look brand new. Sewer good.Water 40@ psi. Didn't use the Wi-Fi. AT&T Cell Phone signal was ok. AT&T Air Card was good but not strong.

Verizon 4G LTE Air Card not as good as AT&T. Cable was good.

Site A13. Sites are arranged in an unusual way but they work. Site was plenty long to park truck on the site. Sites are pretty close on the pull through. Roads in the park are crushed asphalt.

Road to the park is fairly rough but useable. Restrooms clean but didn't use them. Didn't use the Laundry. Long term tenants are in the area but out of the way of the overnight sites. DirecTV Satellite was no problem. No Discounts. Payment with credit card.

This is not as bad of a site as the previous reviews. It is the only one in the area and is good enough for a few nights. The office is in a white build/house. Owners/staff were friendly. I would have no problem staying here for a few days if in the area. We camped at Tri-State RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Great view of the river behind the park. Nice place to take a picnic lunch with the family. Don't miss this.

This is a gravel parking lot right off the interstate. We have stayed here before and it seems as if the owners are doing extensive renovations. It is on the river, but there are no other amenities. We camped at Tri-State RV Park in a Motorhome.

We almost didn't come here based on the previous bad reviews, but there are few choices in this area this time of year (after Columbus Day, when many parks close for the season). We found the office staff friendly and helpful. The roads coming into the park aren't the best, but we've driven on worse. Yes, the highway is close and noisy, but that's what earplugs are for. The rate is a little high for what you get, but we've also paid more for less! The 50A FHU level pull-thru was just what we needed for the night to be on our way tomorrow. We camped at Tri-State RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for a couple of nights while traveling through. Not much to say other than there isn’t a lot of other parks to choose from. The park has easy access to & from Interstate 84. The park is located at the end of street which parallels the Interstate. The park is along a river. Checking in was interesting as no one was in the office. There was a sign directing incoming RV guests to go into the restaurant. The staff there looked around for the RV park staff but couldn’t find one. So the restaurant staff registered us and used the restaurant’s credit card machine to accept payment. The interior roads were gravel. The sites were a mixture of grass or gravel. The roads were narrow and the sites were not well defined. One RV blocked the road by not completely pulling into the site. The sites were generally level. Not much privacy between the sites. They have some full hook ups – water, electricity (50 AMP), & sewer connections. The connections are about in the middle of the sites. They also have what looked like electric and water only sites. Believe those were 30 AMP sites. A portion of the park is open to the sky as there are no trees so satellite reception was good. There seem to be a lot of long term residents in the area of the park covered with a tree canopy. This area wasn’t very inviting. No designated pet area but there was sufficient area to walk the dogs along the roads and near the river. There were no bag dispensers around the park to pick up waste. For being in a hazardous/severe weather area, there was no underground storm shelter. None of the structures in the park were identified as a severe weather shelter. We didn’t use the restrooms/showers/laundry room. Didn’t look in because the building looked scary. We camped at Tri-State RV Park in a Motorhome.

My first real bad rating but we needed a place to stop on a long trip just for the night. The place is not where I would ever go if I needed to stay longer. The only goodness was, the field that we got our electric and water only site was well away from everyone else. Real dump of a place but for the night it was conveniently off the highway and everything worked. No local TV channels but we were fine for the night. If i had no other options and had to stop in the area again I would but only because I had to. We camped at Tri-State RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This park provides a classic example of a "gravel parking lot." But given how hard it rained while we were there, I was saying "Thank God" for the gravel! On the positive side, the pull-thru sites are level and the utilities worked well. We found the WiFi to be excellent. The park is very close to I-84 so the traffic noise was major. The restrooms were not clean and the park is devoid of any positive ambiance. There is a lot of junk piled around and some run-down permanent trailers. Not sure we'd stay here again.

Stayed here for a week to visit local family. Not only is the campground nightly fee overpriced, they hit me for a $58.00 electricity usage deposit and $10.00 for cable! Campground has a great deal of highway noise as noted by others; but the dogs barking at the more permanent sites goes on day and night! Campground impression is that the owners are just taking the money and riding it out until they can sell; junk, downed fences, construction debree, etc.. Watch your step - dog poop is everywhere!

This is a park primarily for workers, but there are sites available for travelers. We came in without reservations and were given a choice of four sites. We chose a pull through near the front with no sewer hookup. We were able to do some minor leveling and not unhook. It had a 50 amp plug, and since we use only 30, we had to use our adapter. Water and electric were good, but I could get no WiFi signal. There was a large grassy area, which was good for our cat to explore. There are two major negatives for the park: the interstate noise is loud and lasts all night, and this is not close to being a $38 park. I would gladly pay $20 for the hookups and grass, since campgrounds in this area are extremely scarce. I begrudgingly paid $38. We camped at Tri-State RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Easy on/off from I-84, but not much more positive to say about this campground. They have free WiFi. It's right on the Delaware River which would have been nice to look at if it wasn't a rainy day. Our site was in a field of transient sites and even though we were in a group of 12 unoccupied sites we were sent to the site farthest from the office and river...the middle of nowhere. Expensive for what it is, but it served the purpose. The next morning we got off at the next exit going east and found several easy off/easy on gas stations and a supermarket. We camped at Tri-State RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is without doubt the worst park we have visited.Grossly overpriced.The electrical hookups were horrific.The park is at a great location close to I 84 with easy access.The highway noise level is high but quite tolerable for a night. I don't understand how they stay in business but then again there are a lot of first time visitors like us just passing through to warmer climates. We camped at Tri-State RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This was an overnight stay from NC to Maine. We were able to drive farther than expected and knew if we did not stop at Tri State, we would be out of options. We had overnighted at this campground many years ago and did not feel comfortable. However this year it was different. There are many permanant sites, but those sites seem to be much cleaner than last time we were here. Also the grass had been cut. Last time we were here it appreared the grass had not been cut in weeks. It really isn't set up for overnights since it is mainly permanant rvs so it is difficult to find a check in person. However when you finally find the person they are friendly. As of 2012, I would reccomend this place for an overnight stay if in a bind. It is very close to I-84 so easy on/off.

This is barely adequate for an overnight stop, but it was in the right place for our route. We asked for 50amp, pull through, sewer. We got 30 amp, hooked up to the sewer in an adjoining site, and we used two sites to make our pull through. We were not too sure about the safety of the water. The hookups are either on the wrong side or the wrong place. The nice girl in the office, who admitted to being new, had no idea what RV sites are, and basically told us to pick a site. There were a few crummy RV's that were probably here forever. We would stop here only in emergency. We camped at Tri-State RV Park in a Motorhome.
