25 Parks near Tamaqua, Pennsylvania
Aug 2012 - $36.00
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

We like State Parks because they have trees and space, and this park is no exception. The campgrounds line 2 sides of a lovely lake. There is a dirt trail around the lake. We were in the dog loop, and were told to pick out a site that suited us. It was mid-week and pretty empty. The site was almost level, but the trees next to the entrance to the site made backing in a little trickier than usual. Our nightly rate mentioned above included the out of state fee plus the dog fee, less the senior citizen discount. This is a little off the road, but a nice getaway. Follow the directions of the lady at the registration hut, our GPS had us going a different way. We would stay here again. - ShoreXplorers

I have stayed here several times. It is my favorite PA State Park. Restrooms could be cleaner but that one thing aside. The sites are not level, be prepared to work at leveling. There are no pull throughs so be prepared to work at that. The sites are wooded and beautiful. The hiking trails are wonderful and scenic. The lake water is clear and swimmable. The fishing is good but take a ride over to Tuscarora State park for great fishing. The rangers patrol on a fairly regular basis. The lady that runs the check in/out is wonderful and has always helped us. Shopping is close by and you can buy plenty of precut dry wood. I only have a small pop up and I have to work to get it right but it is well worth it. When we camp, we disconnect so we don't know about wifi or satellites or anything. Just be aware it is black bear country so keep food and garbage in cars. I plan on going back again and again. Bring bikes and ride around the lake on a well paved trail. - Warren112

Our trip here was almost a disaster, thanks to the online reservation system. We reserved electric site #86, that was supposed to easily accommodate our 30 foot trailer, and when we arrived it was clear that it would barely fit a pop up. Actually the pop up that eventually took that site was having trouble leveling because of the slope. The woman at the contact station was very nice, and not at all surprised by our issue, and said this has happened before. Being Labor Day weekend, she could only offer us a site with no electric, which we took. The park itself is a typical PA State Park with some nice trails and a little lake. The sites are close together in the electric area, but big and much nicer in the dry camping area. If we ever return we'll camp in the dry camping area and be prepared by bringing a generator. If you don't mind being in the pet loops, those sites are much more big rig friendly, although close together. - pamvanw

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

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

After driving narrow winding roads to get here, we're quite disappointed in what we found. This park has a lot of people living in it and there's so many seasonals park. Just by looking across the park we didn't see any other available spaces. There looks to be 75-100 spaces. So we ended up with one of three barely graveled spaces by the front entrance. The park just looks trashy, didn't use the showers or restrooms since we have our own. The "lake" is more of a pond. It is quiet if that's any resolution. The office person was nice enough. - sbelle55

Big rig friendly. Nice large activities pavilion with electric lights. Paid lifeguard on duty daily to oversee swimmers in pond. Kid-friendly campground. We've been there during the X-mas in July festivities complete with Santa hayride. Quiet shady campground off the beaten path. - OH Jimbo

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

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

Park now closed but was a good location when traveling. Park was right off of Interstates 80 and 81. There was not much at the park but it was clean and easy. Staff was friendly. - jcamp2131

We were greeted by the friendly owner. The facility was currently replacing the front entrance road. (extensive renovation) We were escorted to our pull through site. We were also provided with a daily local paper and excellent assistance on directions for our trip to Delaware Water Gap. The cable tv was not quality although many channels were available. Everyone had the same problem. The sites were acceptable although it is not outstanding. The biggest asset of this park is the excellent location to the 2 interstates. It is the only rv park in the area and they have a captive market. Most of the units were large motorhomes and 5th wheels. Many of the campers were only there for 1 evening. According to our neighbors, they do get a lot of repeat business. You will not go wrong with this park for a "one night stand". It is NOT a long term facility. - jojolima

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

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
