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

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

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

Quaint little spot, has a small stream, dog park, pool (closed during my visit). Quiet area. I live in the area, so this was just to get the dust off the trailer. Family enjoyed. Would go again. Interestingly enough, there is a "No Alcohol" policy at this KOA. Might be a "bad" for some and a "good' for others. - lyagooshka

Arrived just before dark, and the site they put us in was barely long enough. Had to leave our 5th wheel connected as there wouldn't have been room to park the truck. Exceptionally tight turns, lots of trees, and very narrow roadways. Pull thru sites are set up in pairs where coaches face each other or are back to back. No privacy and sites are extremely close to kamp cabins. Excess parking is non-existent. Our site was right next to a cabin where you could look out our window into the cabin (fortunately it was not occupied!). It was an overnight stay, and quite a bit off the main road. I'd stay again if I couldn't find anything else. Front desk would not honor military discount even though I explained other KOAs did. - usamacdonald2

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

Evergreen is a real camping experience for families. Go hiking on the trails 1/2 mile down the road, swim at the lake, ride bikes, play ball in the field. Campground is clean and well kept. quiet hours are 10pm-8am and you may walk your pets around the campground on leash. The staff is friendly and expect campers to read and obey the rules so everyone has an enjoyable experience. There are grocery stores and eateries within 15 minutes either direction Bath/Windgap. Saylorsburg flea market is approx. 20 minutes away. Pocono raceway is within 30 minutes of the campground. The camp office has ice/candy/ice cream/snacks/sunscreen/repellents etc. - sassy67

I have been camping at Evergreen lake for the last ten years. It is a beautifully kept campground and the rules are fair. Quite hours are from 11pm to 8am which is nice. My dogs enjoy their walks around the campground. Very nice place, I recommend it to all. - BL2006

The campground is very clean and quiet. The staff is very nice. There are many activities on the weekends and the beach area is very clean. We enjoyed the mini golf also. I've been camping here for nine years and love it. My pets also enjoy taking walks around the campgrounds. - BL2006

Many seasonals, but they were nice and well maintained. Site was level. Much of the campground is wooded. Pull thru sites in an open grassy area. Staff was nice. Would stay again. - DYK 640

Great location in the Poconos. Terrific office staff. Older showers, but clean, with strong water pressure and a large heated bath house. Verizon Mi-Fi worked well, and cable was good. - User3773

One of the few RV parks within traveling distance to the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton area. For a small park, there are nice amenities. The pool (both indoor & outdoor) are spotless. Nice snack bar with breakfast on weekends. Sites are close together, but OK. Only issue is water pressure was horrible. Barely enough to rinse dishes with. We would stay here again when in the area. - laurly

Stayed here to visit friends nearby. Was a very nice SP. As noted, the roads there off interstate are narrow and hilly, but doable. Also as noted, signage in the park could use some work, but once we got to our site, it was fine. Didn't notice road noise behind us on 534, but we mostly stay inside. We had partial shade, but some sites are open. We were in pet section. Other sections are really wooded, so it just depends. Site was 50 amp, FHU, and was level. Decent space between sites. We were able to get OTA channels and had good Verizon coverage. We would stay there again when in the area. - Gayle E.

Stayed in Pet loop with full hook up (W/E/S). Sites back up to Rt 540, no road noise as long as trailer windows were closed. Sites are on edge of a field, no shade in summer. Park has miles and miles of hiking trails and biking trails. Close to Lehigh Gorge State park with thier 25 mile rail trail for bikes and foot travel. Lots of hunting and fishing opportunities. Boulder field felt like a bit of a letdown, not as large or impressive as one in Lenhartsville PA (blue Rocks Family Campground is at base of this boulder field). Overall Hickory Run is a nice destination park. There are black bears in the park. We saw two, a baby one day and a fully grown the next day. - doghouse traveler

Rustic & woodsy, more our preference. Beautiful PK. Stayed mid week with few campers. Campsite had full amenities except for cable & wifi. Direct TV & Verizon recep. good. We were relegated to RV area for canine owners. Site good, backed up to route 534 with little to no traffic noise (woods between road and site).
Slight negative was signage, difficulty locating site. - David Thrasher

We stayed here over race weekend and for a campground that is 2 miles from the track it should have been packed, but it was not full at all. We had to move to a different site because the one we were in was uneven and the auto level for the motorhome wouldn't level us. The second site wasn't much better but we leveled. The site itself was tight and we had no space on the side to set up chairs. With only 20 amp service you can't run electric water heater and a/c without blowing a fuse. We were only able to get 3 channels on TV via the antenna.The roads are narrow and to exit our site to leave campground I had to back up twice in order to make the turn. The interior roads are in need of some repairs.Some people who were registered guests had to leave their car in parking lot and walk to there site because there was no one to let them in when they returned from race at 7 o'clock. The campground made no arrangements to get these people in. The mini golf course is poorly maintained and not worth the money to play. If you are going to the race and do not have to spend to much time in the campground, this place will be OK, otherwise I would find someplace else. - Tom M

We just arrived home from our camping trip in the Poconos. We had a great time at the campground. The bathrooms were super clean and the staff were very friendly. I love going to a campground that has trees and is not a field. This was a true campground and allowed us to really enjoy nature. We even saw some deer, lots of chipmunks, turkeys, and rabbits during our stay. The sites can be tight if you do not know how to back in and it did take us a couple tries to get into our site, but it was very worth it. Our site had a beautiful rock wall and fire pit. My kids had a great time too. We hiked up to the tower and once you get up there, there are so many hiking trails to take. The swimming pool is only open for the afternoon, but the weather isn't really warm enough to go in the evening or morning. We had a great time and we booked another weekend for August. I would recommend this campground to anyone! - campinglori

Campsites were extremely difficult to get into, very tight. Campsites were also very small and were enclosed with stone walls; not much room for chairs and grills and such. There was only one hiking trail and it led to a lookout tower that had been closed for safety reasons so we couldn't go up it. It was also very steep, rough and short. The campground was gated and not always staffed so sometimes you had to wait for someone to show up to let you in. We had a couple come down to visit us and the park charged each a $7 "visitors fee". The also issued wrist bands so they could check to make sure you weren't sneaking in although how you would do that with the gate system I don't know. I couldn't figure out why they needed that kind of security and to be charged for day visitors seemed really excessive. One of our group had a broken sewer line so he couldn't use it (most of the lines were above ground) and although he reported it, they never fixed it so he couldn't use his sewer hook up. Ours was hidden under a rock and at a 45' angle and up against another large rock so none of our fittings would work although we could pump out if we held the hose into the sewer line. I didn't care for the campground and will most likely not be returning. - ms jude

Most sites are level or close to level and are on gravel. All sites include water, electric, and sewer. Cable is also included for many sites.
This park is located between Route 78, a busy highway, and old Route 22 which also has some traffic. Depending on your site (we were in B2), your noise level may be more significant than ours as we were closer to the park's entrance near old Route 22.
Our site had plenty of room our 32 foot motorhome and our car. If you want a fire ring, you may need to ask for one. The campground delivered ours early the next morning (we arrived after dark). - JC06

This is a very nice RV park, just off the hwy, so great for an overnight stay. HOWEVER, it is right next to the highway, so there is a lot of noise. - alm

This is a well-maintained campground with nice, roomy, gravel sites in a lovely area. It is very convenient to I 78, although our GPS told us to get off at the wrong exit and sent us the long way. (Take exit 40.) We had a pull-through site with full hook-ups. They have wifi and cable. The restrooms are clean and well-maintained. We will definitely stay here again. - Lyn T

This place was a little tricky to find but, glad we did! It's all wooded with a small lake and just a few amenities, good old fashioned camping. This place is not for big rigs but, the sites are decent size, bath house was reasonably clean and close to all sites and had lots of showers. It's quiet, away from traffic, maybe a best kept secret! - 88camper

This is the worst campground I've ever been to in my life. Website shows nice pictures of the playground, pool , and gameroom. Those pictures had to be a couple years old. Gameroom is closed and full of junk. Pool was a nice shade of green. Playground was not taken care of and missing different pieces. The bathrooms weren't cleaned except dumping the garbage and the showers were pathetic. Two of the seven shower stalls worked; however, they were filthy and no hot water. Sites were a decent size but not taken care of. Broken picnic tables throughout campground including ours and exposed steel thru-out coming out of the ground from falling apart retaining walls. This is a real hazard to children. I would not go back here if it was free. For $28 I expect more. Its worth about 5 bucks. And lake in picture is only a pond , roads throughout were terrible. - Jim Carp
