The campgrounds is an older established park that has many seasonal campers. The seasonal sites have some units with a lot of junk outsides and many RVs have seen better days. The shorter stay sites are in a lower area near the creek. These sites are a mix of pea gravel, dirt, and grass. These sites are narrow with hookups behind. Most units needed sewer hose extensions to reach the outlet. The pool area is very nice and there is a nice playground for younger children. I thought the campground is not a good value since it is pretty worn and basic. We camped at Tohickon Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

My wife and I were looking for a campground nearby where we could go and just unwind for a few days. This campground met all of our requirements. It was close, had sewer hook ups and the site was pretty level. We went on Father's Day weekend. I was expecting it to be packed but there were several transient sites available. There were many seasonal campers here as had been stated in previous reviews, but the campground has done a very nice job of separating the seasonals from the transient campers. The site we were assigned was fine for our camper which is 33 feet long. I had to park my tow vehicle perpendicular to the trailer so that it wouldn't stick out in the road, but to me that was not a big deal. Previous reviews made too big a deal out of that in my opinion. The sites in our section were gravel, not dirt that had been mentioned in earlier reviews, that must have been updated. The picnic table that we had was very nice, it looked new and appeared to be of high quality. Our site overlooked the creek in the distance, very pretty setting. Fishing was OK in the creek. The store was adequately stocked with a few essentials. Everyone of the staff was very friendly. We will definitely return. We camped at Tohickon Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tohickon Campground Owner, owner at Tohickon Family Campground responded to this review

Thanks for the positive review and kind words Mr. Tim.
Even though we are in our 30th year, we are constantly upgrading sites with new picnic tables, electrical and sewer service, landscaping and other amenities . All reviews, positive or negative, are very helpful to us. We value the feedback. There are some issues/concerns which we can address within the week or season and some may take longer (unfortunately, possibly never), but we try to make the campground a great relaxing experience for everyone.
We look forward to your return!
The Deegan Family and Tohickon Staff

Rate depends on length of stay. Seasonal sites are separated from the transient sites. Room for my 36' 5th wheel and tow vehicle. Only campground in the area with full hook-ups. Staff is very nice and will work hard to accommodate your needs. Historic mill and covered bridge on site. Tohicon Creek runs through the campground. Very quiet during the week. Fills up on the weekend but folks have always been nice and followed the campground rules. Lots of activities for the kids on weekends. Nice clean pool. Play area. Would definitely stay again. We camped at Tohickon Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Would have helped if someone could have give us directions to by-pass the covered bridge?! Uh, most of your clients are motorhomes, pull-alongs etc. How can you not know how to get a client to your campground? We didn't end up staying. We got their last spot on Oak Drive. It was sandwiched between dirty and sloppy. Dirt road; dirt spot. No way to get into the spot safely. Access to water was a mystery. Couldn't find it and neither could the staff. No one there to help with anything. As we were leaving, we saw some lovely spots with large grass area in the front. They were the seasonals. The spots they have for overnights were not acceptable. Pass on this place. We camped at Tohickon Family Campground in a Motorhome.

Majority of the campground is filled with trashy/junky seasonal sites. There is only a small number of sites for weekend rentals - and these sites are not accomodating for long RV's - 30'+ - they are short and cannot park tow vehicle in front of the spots. Most of the sites do not have stone - it rained the entire weekend we camped and our sites turned into a nasty mud pit -- some additional stone would have fixed this. They do have a very nice pool, but the hours are limited. The office staff were nice and helpful. It wa snot a bad place, but for the price and the location, not the best value for the fee they charge. Free wi-fi was available - but it had a very poor signal - worse than the "spotty" ATT and Verizon cell coverage in the area - we could barely make phone calls, and downloading emails/txts was not possible. We camped at Tohickon Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Pros: Nice, helpful staff. Had trick-or-treating, a Halloween party with games for the kids. Facilities in decent condition. Covered bridge. Stream with geese. Quakertown Farmers Market and Lake Noxamixon with geo-caching near by. Cons: High price of $48 per night due to Halloween weekend. Intermittent, overloaded Wi-Fi. Litter. Sites were tightly packed. We camped at Tohickon Family Campground in a Motorhome.

Sites were a little small. Creek was nice for the kids to fish in. We didn't do any of the activities because it rained most of the time. The site didn't really flood at all, we liked that. The price was a special for that weekend. We would stay here again for that price only. We camped at Tohickon Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

A rather small campground with half of its sites dedicated to seasonals. Could be the only location in Bucks County to offer sewer - a big plus. Contrary to previous reviews, we found most sites too narrow. My slideout extended over to my neighbor's site. Several sites dedicated to tent camping; convenient unless you mind rampant goose poop. Staff was super pleasant, the campground's lush trees kept the air cool throughout the day, and its location is close to Philly, Allentown, and Trenton.

Our rate reflects a special price they offer pretty often, and was for a full hookup site. This campground is a real gem. It is quiet, sites are well laid out and the staff really care. It is a family run operation and it can definitely use a coat of paint in a few places. The shower house is needs some maintenance to get it to a higher quality as well. That said, the creek running through is very peaceful, the open spaces are really well laid out for kids to play and the sites are moderately level (two layers of Legos were needed on the trailer). The store is well stocked, and the pool is very nice. It was still too cool to use but the area was well kept. There are a few group sites and their were a few parties going on and none of them were a problem. If you have dogs, avoid transient space 9, next to a pathway to the upper tier. We were there and had to apologize every time another dog walked by for our youngest pooch. He is not aggressive but a bit noisy. Other spots provide better privacy from other campers. The location is excellent for visiting local tourist sites like Philadelphia to the south and Bethlehem to the north. Shopping is only a few minutes away and an excellent Italian restaurant is just five minutes up the road. The goose population and the resultant, well, poo can be a bother. The area along the creek could be messy but the campsites and play areas were unaffected. We will stay here again. We camped at Tohickon Family Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a well maintained, picturesque campground. The permanent sites are removed from the transient ones. There was good space between sites, more than at a KOA. Wi-Fi was spotty at best. OK in the AM or late PM, but almost non-existent during the day. No cable TV hookups, but good off the air reception. Would recommend highly and definitely return.

Quirky campground set in rural PA just near a beautiful covered bridge (clearance 12’-1”). Appears to be several permanent or seasonal campers on the “hill” area of the CG. Many in need of work and a good cleaning. We were on the lower, more level area. Did not need to level at this site. Store and office were closed by 6pm when we arrived. The next day we went to square up and found that even though it was 2 weeks before Halloween, because it was a “holiday” weekend, that we could not get discount as Good Sam members. We did, however, get a discount for Thursday night and Sunday night. We were also told that they held THREE Halloween weekends in October, all considered “holidays”. Apparently campgrounds can call any weekend a “holiday” and not give discounts. We were not happy about that, especially since we didn’t see this info on the website, or on any of the paperwork. Internet reception is not so good. Bathrooms were clean. We camped at Tohickon Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Nice park, family campground. We were in the off season and were able to get a spot right on the river. Was very nice and quiet. Sites had plenty of room, although there were only about six campers besides us. One word of caution. It is on covered bridge road. Depending which way you come in: there is a covered bridge 12' 1". Manager was great and very accommodating. Would stay here again. We camped at Tohickon Family Campground in a Motorhome.

Nightly rates reflects military discount. I'm note quite sure we actually received the right discount on our entire stay. They offer active duty plus first responder discounts. My calculations would say no we didn't. We camped here for 5 days. The park is an "old" family run park. The bathrooms smelled of mildew something horrible. The showers I don't think were very cleaned the 5 days we stayed, as the drains were full of hair and the walls were full of creepy crawlers. Most sites are some what shaded. There is a gaggle of geese at the park they are near the stream and they defecate everywhere. The park tries to clean it usually at first light. There are a lot of seasonals there who stay in run down trailers, kind of makes the whole park look messy. This is a very wooded area and some sites are very wide and easy to get into and others are not. The Wi-Fi was horrible at best, I don't think I was ever able to connect the whole time we were here. We camped at Tohickon Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We were visiting the area for the Lenape Pow Wow at Core Creek Park. The campground was really nice and it was quiet for a weekend. When we arrive we were running late. We set up like usual and then took off for the pow wow. When we came back I realized that we did not have any shore power. So I went out and tried to take a look. The 30 amp and the 50 amp plugs were not working. I tried the 15 amp one and it worked. Good thing I brought my adapters. We got the A/C going to cool off the camper and I went up to the office to report the problem. The campground staff had someone there within 5 mins to look at and fix the problem. They had the 30 amp plug working within 20 mins and had no additional problems the rest of the time. I would like to say that when travelling to the campground you have to make sure that you can either fit under a 12 foot covered bridge or you have to travel the long way around. When taking the long way you have to be mindful of low branches and wires. Other then that we will definitely go back to this campground. We camped at Tohickon Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
