Almost the only option for overnight along the I-78. About 7 miles off the interstate but not hard to get to or find. Pull thru with electric and water. Worked for what we needed. We stayed going and coming from our destination because of location and limited choices. - sonofabaker

This is an average KOA. Gravel roads and gravel sites. It is a tight campground with most sites facing each other (neighbor's table and patio right outside your front door). Showers were clean, hot, and private (a bit on the small side). People were friendly and helpful. The laundry facility was nice as well. The road to get to the KOA is not good and could be dangerous. It is basically a one lane road and would be problematic if another camper were departing or arriving at the same time (we were fortunate that this didn't happen, but would be very difficult if it did as there is very little wiggle room). The same is true for the check in area. One rig at a time can get through - period. We were coming back from a day trip with just the tow vehicle and got caught in a traffic jam between two RV's, 2 golf carts, and a pickup truck. There was lots of backing by those involved. We used this campground as base camp so that we could visit nearby, Dorney Amusement Park and it worked for that purpose. We were on a full hook-up site that was decent and fairly level side to side. Sloped down hill to the front. Some other campers had to use leveling blocks side to side. The electric/water sites by the stream were very level, but weren't full hook-ups. - IBpraisingGod

We very much enjoyed this campground. The sites were pretty close together but they were level, gravel sites with good drainage. We found this out when it rained pretty heavily one night. The sites drained but the grassy areas were saturated. The roads were not muddy, for the most part. The wi-fi was free and reasonably fast though the pipe did get saturated since the campground was full, due to it being the 4th of July weekend. The restrooms and showers were clean and well maintained but they were a little small. The other problem was a slight smell to the water that kept us using the water we brought with us to drink. There was a very pretty stream that ran through the place and we enjoyed the view. The office staff was very pleasant and helpful. The toilet paper in the women's restroom was stolen and they were very quick to replace it. One other thing that impressed was the quiet hours. As I mentioned, it was the 4th of July weekend and the campground was full but they kept the place quiet after 10:00 pm. We really appreciated that. We would definitely choose to come back here. - Meyer Camping

The CG is a few miles off 476 so it might be a tad long for an overnight, which we were. Germans Road to the CG is narrow and only wide enough for one big rig at a time.
CG is immaculate with a nice pool area and children's playground. All sites are back in. The transients are in the back of the CG with easy maneuverability for most big rigs. We were fortunate that there was no truck with the fifth wheel across the street from us so getting into the site was easy, otw it would have been a challenge for our 45 footer.
Wide, level gravel site plus a nice area of grass with a picnic table and even a designated space for the tow. It gives you a feeling of space. WES all fine and excellent wifi. Good 50 amp service with very hot summer temperatures.
Most of the CG is made of permanent, well maintained units. Have no idea what is around the area. - Team Asphalt

If you are looking for a quiet campground, this is an excellent choice. We hardly ever saw anyone let alone heard someone. The sites are spacious, level, and full hook-up. They are stone and gravel with a large strip of grass between sites. All had picnic benches and a fire ring.
There is a pool and a play area for kids, but we didn't see many kids here. This campground is on a hill so bicycling would probably be a challenge given the roads are also stone and gravel.
Many of the sites are seasonal, but everyone we met was very friendly. - JC06

Decent gravel roads (watch for speed bumps) throughout the campground with no low hanging tree branches. No pull thru's, but the site we had there was room to back in. I believe we were in D6 and we were in a 36 ft motorhome. They have a separate gravel spot next to the camper to pull your car in which is nice. Sites are decent size and gravel. New picnic tables. Not a lot of privacy, but a decent space between campers. Water pressure, 50 amp electric and cable all worked great. Many seasonal sites, but everyone was friendly and helpful including the staff and owner. Relaxing and quiet. Stores (yes a Walmart) and restaurants about 20 minutes in one direction, 30 minutes in opposite direction. Advise you arrive before dark. Off of a one lane road, and the mile drive up German Rd to the actual campground is dark, you're driving through mostly woods. We saw an entire herd of deer coming up German Rd in our car one evening. Would definitely go back the next time we're in the area. If they had pull thru's and had their roads finished (they're working on them, still a few rough patches) I'd have gone with a 10 rating. - JoppaFolks

Very nice park. Our first site wasn't long enough, but they quickly gave us another one that accommodated both our rig and tow. We just stayed overnight, but the place was so nice and open we hope to come back again and stay longer. - Lucky Lady from Florida

We have stayed here numerous times; we initially selected the campground because it was the only campground in the area that can fit our larger RV. It is now our desired campground to stay at when visiting with family and friends in western and central New Jersey or for an overnight stop when traveling through the area. The park is pretty, a very convenient on/off from Route 78, and the owners are nice. Although we wish the owners would more regularly trim their trees (and/or trim them higher) we have found a site that will best works for our RV's height (13' 4"). The owners nicely allowed us to trim some tree branches, to help our exit from the park during a prior visit, when our desired site was booked. You do hear some traffic noise from route 78 when outside, but it does not bother us inside the RV. The park offers seasonal activities (e.g., we stayed there during their Halloween weekends), although we did not participate it looked like everyone who did, thoroughly enjoyed themselves (RVs were elaborately decorated and many people where in costumes and there were activities at the community building). I would recommend the campground, particularly for anyone who owns a slightly shorter, in height, RV than ours. The pull-through sites are long. - 2FullTimersinaFifth

This park has a combination of pull-through and back-in sites. All are solid gravel pads with grass areas. Upon request, staff brings fire rings. The park was extremely well maintained, and the staff some of the friendliest people we've met. Water pressure, power and cable were all great. The only negative was coming in at night. Staff guided us to the site, but there are no lights and it is a challenge to navigate. This is one of our favorite parks. We'd stay here again. - Wildmans Clan

Very nice for seasonal stays. Just OK for short stays.
Bath-house cleanliness is very important to us. Restrooms on the hill are not clean with lots of cobwebs and hit or miss toilet function. Restroom near the office was a little better. All in all, the Bath Houses need an upgrade.
Sites around the perimeter are gorgeous with stunning views. Interior sites are patchy grass, some shade, with some sites not particularly level front to back. But, then again, leveling is what we RVers do. Lots of activities and things to do. The seasonal residents seem to love it there and it is definitely kid friendly with enough solitude for folks who prefer quiet get-aways. Your enjoyment at Robin Hill will depend heavily upon site selection. - rvparkreviews_cc

Campground workers did not seam very concerned with your site issues or concerns that you brought to there attention. Was put on a seasonal site which was not occupied at the time. Found grass to be needing a good clipping, no rain in a while so I saw not excuses for poor landscaping. A bit hilly so not good for a walk unless you are in good shape. In speaking to some of the seasonal campers, they stated it was much better run 5 or 6 years back when it was owned by a local church. I would not recommend for a long stay. If your traveling it would be acceptable. - Not a very Happy Camper

Rate was PA rate. Campground roads are very hilly, and several of the roads within campground are dead ends. Wi-Fi is probably good, if you want to pay for it. Laundry room was neat and clean with several books available for swapping out. Lots of permanents, but they seem to keep their sites neat. People who evidently camp here a lot during the summer, ride in their golf carts with kids hanging off of them and don't obey the 5 mph speed limit. Ladies in office were there, but seemed as if they were preoccupied and could care less if guests were in office/camp store. It is an ENCORE campground, and is probably failing just as the ones in Florida are. If I was in area again, I would probably search for another campground, due to hilly terrain. - butch&brenda

The campground is farther off the main roads than you would expect after reading their brochure. No discounts for anything. Narrow entry and exit pasted the office. VERY hilly with huge drop off ditches on each side of the road. Steep road up the hill. Sites are no where near level. The bathhouse is old and outdated with no a/c or heat. The check-in clerk had no idea if the campground could fill propane in a motorhome. I did see the propane station but it was not reachable by a motorhome. I should have but did not read the reviews. Do not even think of going here in a motorhome. I will not return. - cmprcountry

We enjoyed our stay here. They have an on-staff security officer who drove around the campground. Although, there didn't seem to be a need for him to drive around, it was comforting to see him. The campground was well maintained and the owners take pride in it. We especially enjoyed the ice cream shop. The couple that worked there was very friendly. We took a hike to the top of the mountain. The view was amazing, but we were not prepared for how hard it was. I think that there should have been more information on how difficult the trails were. - Mike in NJ

Just returned from 3 nights at Blue Rocks. First impressions were not good. Arrived at 2 pm and lights not on inside office and employee not very helpful. I am one of those campers who likes to have a magnet from every campground we visit. I asked if there were any as I only saw stickers and patches and was told " I don't know, if we did they would be in there." Camp store very not very well equipped and one camper came out annoyed they didn't even have milk. We had site 146 and my parents had 147. Site 146 was on the creek, but small site and steep going into creek. I was leary with a 2 and 4 year old so we switched with the parents for 147. Much bigger site but both sites along the main road in the campground. Sites were rustic, rocky and nice tree coverage. Pond was small, but well stocked with bass, carp, sunnies and catfish. Pool looked clean but did not go in. Restrooms were old, but clean. Larger restroom and showers up by the glacier rocks. Electric was spotty as our breaker blew several times just running the AC on low and nothing else. Blue glacier rocks were just so so beautiful. Nice trails from the top sites, but did not hike with the little ones. Park ranger drives through campground which is nice but, only on the weekend it seemed. Lots of employee traffic in trucks and on loaders, but they were setting up for 3 days for a music festival up by the rocks. All in all, the campground really grew on us. A nice rustic campground with beautiful sites and not too much fuss. Site 156 along the rocks looked really pretty, but not near the creek. The creek kept my 4 yr old busy catching craw dads and bullfrogs. Deepest part was only up to his waist(bring water shoes). - lcarroll

Our site was shaded, not level, very small and not maintained. Roads are narrow and not clearly defined, hard to navigate. Lost electric 3 occasions.
Owners were pleasant. Would not camp here again. - dkiefer

It is pretty much the only game in town, campground-wise. Good location with proximity to Jim Thorpe town, mtn. biking, ATV riding, whitewater rafting. Campground looks pretty much unchanged over the past 30 years--and as I've been going to JThorpe for 30 years, can confirm it's not much different. It's "rustic", but passable. It's not a "resort" by any stretch, or even close to KOA standards, but it gets the job done. Best attributes are what's around it--streams, mtns, J Thorpe, and all it offers. - jmelaw

Wonderful folks operating this campground. Rustic with quite a drive in and out but well looked after when you are there. Propane on site. Not your KOA or Good Sam- everything for family campground but very accommodating and helpful owners. Will definitely stay there again. - pwaygood

After hearing mixed reviews about Rosemount, we went anyway. I think we found a hidden gem. I think Wi-Fi is available at the office. Only reason I didn't give a 10 was because of the funky sewer hookups. Most come out of the ground on steep angles and do not have any fittings. That's easily fixed with duct tape. Pond is nice but not within walking distance. Campground is on a hill but it's not bad to walk. Sites were huge and level, but the exit roads were a little tight. Will return. - mikeh

Large campground on the side of a large hill. Lots of permanently situated RVs. All seemed to be well taken care of. Weekend was very busy and most if not all spaces full. Pool looked nice. Lots of open area for walking dogs, but definitely up and down! Charged extra to run AC!! Supposed to have 50 amp, but wound up with 30, which we made work as the office staff seemed a bit over whelmed.
Electric and water ok, wifi not much. Had some difficulty with leveling. Thank goodness someone had left a homemade step. We needed it to get in and out. - Motorhome girl

We needed a 50 amp site and originally was assigned a 30 amp buddy site, however it was quickly remedied. Our site was spacious on a mix of sand and grass with a picnic table and fire ring. We were here just before Memorial Day so we had a whole section all to ourselves! The grounds are gorgeous and well maintained and very quiet. We did peak into the restrooms and laundry which were both very old and tired. the service was great! This is a great location to get around to points of interest. - Tony Connie and Rusty

A really nice campsite, lots of amenities for families and groups/rallies and very nice pool. Very friendly helpful owners. Limited restrooms and showers for the size site but very clean. Our site rather narrow, no free wifi or cable. Great views and location for a peaceful retreat. We would recommend. - Harris England

Wi-fi internet is for all intentional purposes, useless. No sewer hookups. One dump station. Big sites, good spacing between sites. Good clean Christian run park. Rules enforced for noise. Great kids park. Nice heated pool, playground, dog friendly, game room. Plenty to do in the area. Close to Cabelas. Mostly permanents. Call ahead as weekends fill up quickly. - Salem Cruise Lite

This was our first CG during our first time long term full-time RVing and we were very pleased. We hope that this would be an example of what we will be encountering on our journey. The owners are very nice people that did everything they could to make our stay comfortable. We had the unfortunate timing of hurricane Irene and ended up without electricity for 3 days. But it was all good. Great experience and we learned how to boon dock. The CG has narrow roads made of crushed stone and the location for RVers, nicknamed the airport, is an open space that is newly converted for RVing, with modern electric and water. The spaces were tight, when the park was full. Not much for shade as the trees are still young and not very tall. We stayed during both an empty park, with only a few guests, and a full one, during labor day weekend, which had a lot of activity going on. All in all, it is a clean CG, great people, clean showers, nice pool. The road getting to the CG is steep, as are the roads within the CG. We enjoyed our stay and would return. We recommend this CG. - thesarge7

We camped here in March with our brand new travel trailer (we just picked it up) and it could not have been nicer. The people there were super friendly and let us pick any site that was available. We stayed in what appeared to be a newer gravel section that was really nice and clean. Sites are roomy and well marked. We had a guest visit and they were great. The staff helped us find local activities and was very helpful. Large playground facility that my 5 year old really enjoyed. I enjoyed that the seasonal sites were set apart from the nightly sites; it made it more camping and less summer home. The only thing missing was the sewer hook up, but that is not a deal breaker. - RVFamily1221
