Stayed Labor Day weekend with another couple. We called 3 weeks before Labor Day weekend to see if by chance they had any openings, the girl that answered the phone could not have been nicer. She accommodated us with no problems. We had site 107 along the creek & site 115 which is adjacent. Both sites were fantastic. Bathrooms & showers were immaculate. Definitely will be back. Only reason they are getting a 9 - the store closed at 5pm on Sunday night which I find a bit odd for a large holiday weekend, but we were able to get firewood by placing money in a slot in the office door. Very very nice setting, cant say enough about the site along the creek. Very large & spacious. would recommend to everyone.
All sites are shaded and have division between your next campsite. Our site was a little on the small side for our 30' 5th wheel w/ 1 slide. We could barely fit our truck on the site with us. We did see other sites that are larger, which we would ask for if we came again. Used the restrooms by the office, they were not clean at all. Tried the other restroom on the hill, they were better. We didn't use the showers at all. A lot of amenities. They had a band one of the nights we stayed and it was very enjoyable. Everyone was very friendly, the staff and other campers. Very close to a lot of things to do in the Pocono Mountains. Would stay again. They will get a 10 next time if they have clean bathroom facilities and a larger site to accommodate us. Would recommend to a friend.
This is the first time staying at this campground and we were pleasantly surprised. It is tucked away on some back wooded roads and the campground is spread out on two sides of the road. We stayed in a section away from the main campground where the pool and activities were going on, across the road, but we liked it. Very spacious, wooded pull through site. It has a lake for fishing and lots of activities for kids and grown-ups were posted. We walked around to see what the other sites looked like: 90% are permanents, but they have 2 small sections dedicated pretty much to weekend campers. And both sections were shady and set up nicely. We went to Rice's Flea Market on Saturday, which is about a half hour away. The only reason I'm giving a 9: the two wooded sections for weekend campers, do not have any bathhouses. You would need to walk a pretty far distance to use the bathhouses. We were only here for 3 days, so it was ok that they don't have sewer hook-ups at any sites at this campground and we could dump on our way out. We will definitely be coming back here at least one or two more times this season. We just loved that it was tucked away from it all.
Stayed here for the first time Memorial Day Weekend and made reservations for next year for the same weekend. We stayed in the wooded sites directly behind the store, very spacious sites, they don't have sewer hook-up, but the honey wagon came around on Sunday. Lots and lots to do at this campground. Very kid friendly, they have activities planned from morning to night. Our 4 yr old granddaughter had a great time. Nice pool area, we didn't go in because it was crowded, it was very very humid this w/end, so it's understandable it was full. They had a D.J. one nite and a live band the next. They have an ice cream stand & a little restaurant. They also have a game room, playground and a pond for fishing. The only negative I have is the employees in the store were not very cheery. It seemed like we were bothering them. Other than that I would have given them a 10.
Stayed opening w/end in the pull through site area. They have scheduled activities such as bingo, hayride through the woods, very nice playground for the kids, had a covered dish event this w/end. Well supplied camp store, also has a kitchen & nice seating area to eat with old camping memorabilia to look at while you are dining. We grabbed an egg sand on a bagel one morning, the other food items listed looked very reasonably priced and sounded delicious. Although it was opening w/end the bathrooms were immaculate & had plenty of room to shower. We are coming back for Father's Day w/end and another w/end in October - we look forward to it.
Great place to stay. We were greeted by campsite personnel at the gate with our reservations right in their hands. They checked us in and also showed us right to our site. This gave it a 10 right off the bat. We stayed up on the hill where it is very woodsy, level, spacious campsite. This gets an A plus in my book. They had tons of activities for kids and grown ups alike. They have a pond for fishing and a stocked camp store. Definitely will be coming back later in the season. They get a thumbs up. Will probably try to stay at one of their other campgrounds in another state this season as well. Very impressed.
We will definitely return to Don Laine Campground, the view from the mountain is outstanding. They have planned activities, a hay ride through the woods, homemade chicken pot pie and apple fritters: both were out of this world. A nice playground for the kids. You can't beat the price, $28.00 for a family of four!! We haven't stayed in a campground that reasonably priced yet. Can't wait until Spring of 2012 to go back, very nice, friendly staff and fellow campers.
Stayed here with another family and took our grandchildren to Dutch Wonderland Amusement Park, it was the weekend of hurricane Irene, we didn't know if we should stay or not, but glad we did. The morning after the storm, the staff was out early, picking up large branches and making sure all the roads were clear and that everyone was OK. We can't wait to go again next year, would recommend highly.
We stayed here free as a guest to listen to the opportunity to join their membership. We were not impressed at all for a campground advertising as a resort. We have stayed in many campgrounds that were not labeled as resorts and that were much nicer. For a resort that wanted us to spend thousands of dollars to join, they didn't give us the "royal" treatment. The sites are literally on top of each other; any closer & you wouldn't be able to put out your awning. If I were trying to impress someone and show them "the best", I would at least give full hook-up. We would never recommend this resort to anyone.
Nice campground. Not very full the w/end we stayed, but may be due to a lot of the rainy weather in northeast this summer or near the end of the season. Stayed in one of their pull through sites which we weren't too impressed with, they are on a strip of grass with 6 of them tight against each other, not much room once you put out your awning. When we walked around we saw a lot of nice shaded sites, which might be more to our liking when it's not so muddy. Staff was nice, game room was OK, they have a pool table & lots of planned activities which was great because we had our 2 yr old granddaughter along, she LOVED the indoor pool. Did some sight-seeing, would stay again.
