We had site 71 which was a pull through, full hook up. Our neighbor at Site 70 (a back in site) blocked our access to our site and politely moved his truck to that we could pull in. However, it is the way the sites are laid out that caused the problem. Our site was mostly level, hook ups were with in reach. It is a very quiet, small campground. The pool is small, there is a playground, basketball hoop, and arcade, but no planned activities for kids. Campground has gravel roads, one bathhouse and laundry room with 3 washers, 2 dryers. Clean facilities, small camp store. It rained while we were here and our campsite had good drainage. I did not see standing water anywhere. If you are looking for a peaceful campground this one is for you. I would prefer activities for our 3 kids, so based on that I would not camp here again, though we loved our site, it faced the forest and there was not a lot of traffic going through the park. As others have mentioned the roads through the campground are tight. We camped here the last week in June. We camped at Hemlock Campground & Cottages in a Fifth Wheel.

Due to route changes and traffic delays, we could not make our original destination and needed a place to stay overnight. Even though I called late on a Sunday afternoon (at closing time), owner was very helpful and friendly. Wish we had more time to spend here. It is a wonderful campground. Very quiet, wooded, large sites. Road is tight going in, but very doable. You can tell the owners take pride in their campground. We camped here in a motorhome.

We only stop here overnight on our way to Ohio. Pool is heated but air to cool for us to use. Wish we could stay longer as it is a wonderful campground. So clean and comfortable. Owners are wonderful hosts. We camped at Hemlock Campground & Cottages in a Motorhome.

Let begin by stating the campground is definitely off the beaten path. You are somewhat close to the Poconos and the Casino Airy.
The campground is in a residential area. Pulling into the campground is very tight. It was a little confusing on finding which building was the main office. Once I located the office the staff was very friendly and checked me in very quickly. I was given a gate key and it was needed to enter and leave the campground. I proceeded to find my site, and the main road is somewhat narrow. Some of the trees could be cut back away from the road and there were a few low lying branches along the way. I was given site #51 which is in the back of the campground. The site was all gravel, very large and plenty of room for my 30 foot travel trailer. The picnic table looked new and the fire ring was very large. The site was very quiet probably because it was Monday and Tuesday night of the week. The pedestal was easy to get to, but it did not provide enough voltage. My power surge protector kept tripping just with my air conditioning on and my hot water heater. Let alone trying to watch tv at the same time. Water pressure was sufficient and the sewer was positioned in the middle of the site. The bathrooms were clean but could use some updating. The campground does have a pool and some playground equipment for the kids. We camped at Hemlock Campground & Cottages in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Plenty of things to do out and about. We took a drive to Scranton, PA to Nay Aug Park! Well worth the drive.

This is a nicely wooded campground. The sites are larger than most with plenty of room for slideouts. Our site was nicely graveled and did not require leveling. Check-in was easy and the owners are very friendly, helpful, and work hard to keep up the campground. Many sites are seasonals or people that have their trailers set up and come on weekends, but they keep sites available for travelers. Campground can get very busy on the weekends but quiet hours are observed. Pool area was nice and there are planned activities. Restrooms are older but kept clean even when busy. Rate was average for nine nights with Good Sam and Passport America. We would camp here again. We camped at Hemlock Campground & Cottages in a Travel Trailer.

Rate based on monthly. We love the Poconos. So much to do in the area. The weather is always pleasant. It's not far to visit friends and relatives on Long Island. The campground is gated with a card key. The roads inside the park are narrow but passable. There are seasonal campers here, Most of them came on weekends. Very quiet during the week. The site itself was shaded, grass and gravel. We did fit in our 39 ft RV but it was an adventure backing in. WiFi was excellent as was cell. Owners are helpful. Would be returning when we're in the area. We camped at Hemlock Campground & Cottages in a Fifth Wheel.

This was our first time here. Campground was nice. There are only a few sites available for short term rentals. The staff was friendly and professional. The campground is small, but I didn't have any issues getting my 30 ft RV to and into the site. We will be camping here again. We camped at Hemlock Campground & Cottages in a Travel Trailer.

Very, very wooded place. If you had a big rig, don't go there. We had a 23 foot and barely got around to the camp site. Showers and bathroom clean and nice. Staff very friendly had cable, which is nice. Sites were kind of cramped because of all the trees. You need to be good at backing in your rig.

Passport America Rate, $24. TREES, lots of dense TREES. Two main roads are one-way, paved, mostly level, quite narrow, with trunks of trees very close to edges of slightly windy road, with some low hanging branches. It was an anxious, careful & slow drive to our site. Definitely not big rig friendly although we are only 36’. We arrived at our site with awnings and mirrors intact. But it was beautiful and the most truly “woodsy” campground we were ever in. RVs nestled everywhere between the trees, and sites mostly spacious. Fine for trimming trees in any way $275. Great place to chill out in the Pocono mountains. We camped at Hemlock Campground & Cottages in a Motorhome.

A small CG but very nice. The owners were very nice & attentive. A large percentage of seasonals & permanents. Some of them looked a bit run down. The road is a one-way and very narrow. Would stay again. We camped at Hemlock Campground & Cottages in a Travel Trailer.

We found this park by calling the office and getting good directions. An electronic gated entrance guards the entrance to the gravel roads and sites in this park. We put our 36' motor home in a level, back-in gravel pad that had 30 amps available. Most sites are all tree covered, but tall enough for us and wide enough for us being careful. Water pressure was 40 PSI and our SurgeGuard had no faults indicated. Good strong signals on WiFi, but the speed was a little faster than dial-up. Google maps display would "paint" the computer screen a section at a time. They had a chili cook-off and line dancing in the recreation hall, but we came in late and didn't join. Cable TV was great. Camp fires and fire pits were in use. There were no bugs, flies or mosquitoes. We will stay here again. We camped at Hemlock Campground & Cottages in a Motorhome.
