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. We camped at Tohickon Family Campground in a Motorhome.

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.

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.

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.

We understand that this campground has just sold. I hope the new owners are as considerate and friendly as the present owners. We had some work done on our truck, and it took longer than expected. They moved us to another site and even then we were down to the wire getting out on a 4th of July weekend Friday. The folks that had the site rented for the weekend were terrific. They waited until 4:30 when the truck was done, and the office had made plans to put them in another site if necessary. Everyone was really great about us being in the site after checkout. The campground is grass and some gravel, all back-ins. FHU were good, and all sites have 50amp. There were activities for the kids on the weekend and a pool. Also activities for the adults. It got a little muddy when we had a thunderstorm, but for the RV's at least not bad. DON’T follow your GPS down Thatcher to Covered Bridge road if your RV is higher than 12ft 1 in. Call if you need to, but the covered bridge will take out vent covers and maybe an air conditioner. I didn’t have that problem but a brand new 5er next to me did. Overall a little pricey but a nice place to park. We were there 12 days. Don’t take site 7 without looking at it first. Rate reflects PA discount not counting weekends.

We camped here with another family. We had a good time. The staff was helpful and friendly. We didn't use the pool, but it looked clean. The sites were a nice size and we didn't feel crowded. Our only minor issue was that our site was mostly dirt. Some of the other full hookup sites had gravel and grass. We'll be requesting one of those the next time out. Seemed like the non-hookup sites were mostly grass. We will be back again. We camped at Tohickon Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This was a nice enough campground; folks that run the campground are friendly and helpful. Much of the campground is seasonal, but the section that supports open camping is right on Tohickan Creek: so bring your fishing pole or just kick back and enjoy the picturesque view! The surrounding area is just as nice with back country roads, a covered bridge, beautiful old stone houses and barns, and a County Park and State Park (with a HUGE lake) just minutes away. The downside? These campsites would not offer much privacy or pretty views if the campground is crowded. We were fortunate that many of the sites around us were not reserved. But my real peeve? The campground did not offer recycling! What's up with that? We camped at Tohickon Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

It is a long drive from the main road in to the campground. The road narrows & you see the covered bridge with the restricted height before you see the campground gate just before it bringing stress levels, if you have a tall rig, to the roof before they drop to safe levels again. Free WI-FI. Transients get nicest sites next to or near river. Midweek mid September the place was near empty. $18, PA rate We camped at Tohickon Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

OK, the staff here are very, very friendly. But this is not a place to camp in a tent. They only have about 18 or so tent sites that are way too close to each other. They are dirt sites that do not drain well at all. We had to leave after we could not find a site that did not look like a swamp ! We camped at Tohickon Family Campground in a Tent.
