The full hook-up sites are very close together - I could hear someone in the next RV snoring even with the windows closed. Some of the sites seem to be in low-lying areas where water accumulation might be a problem. The night we were there, quiet hours were not enforced - there was a loud unruly group who kept everyone else awake until almost 1 am, when the campground hosts finally shut them down. Would not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Another one of those "off the beaten path" campgrounds. It is a couple of miles down a narrow, winding road with cars "flying" up and down it. The campground was nice, with lots of shady spots, but they put us in a wide-open, no shade tree spot and there were lots of open spots all around?? Lots to do in the area, but we were only here a day. Would have liked to stay longer, might go back, but only if they give me one of those shady spots! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Ok place for a quick get-away if you're in the NYC area. Bathrooms were clean, if rustic. The water pressure issues experienced by previous reviewers also happened on the Labor Day weekend. Sites are a little on the small side. Staff was split between full-time on site and temporary help. Staff was excellent and helpful in all regards. A bit overpriced, since you have to pay for just about everything when you are here. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here twice within a week going to/from Maine. It was an ok cg. The staff was friendly and security was ok (although they did not close the gate as we expected at night). We found the price we paid for NOT having full hook-up a bit steep. Our sites (109 and 110) were level and fine for our 31' MH. Big rigs would have a challenge as the turns were sharp and lots of trees. Sites as you come in on the right would work for larger MH's. On our return stay, it rained cats and dogs and the cg became a swamp in places. Many campers would find they had to step out into water. Our sites were dry. It's a decent place for a 1 night stay, but we've stayed in nicer KOA's. Having said that: we'd stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed July 4th weekend. We stayed with other families and had 3 sites next to each other. I loved our sites. We had plenty of room. Looking around the campground, no one really looked like they were on top of each other. The staff was very friendly. They kept patrolling the area in golf carts, maybe a little too much. The pool was on the smaller size and a bit crowded, but if you waited for a different time than the afternoon rush, there was enough room. Now for the bathroom. I didn't use them (travel trailer) but others in my group did. In the afternoon there was no water pressure so the toilets wouldn't flush. There seems to be some water pressure issues when the campground is busy. I would recommend filling your water tank and using that when the pressure is low. One of the nights we had no water to any of the campsites for a few hours. We did appreciate the service recovery of free mini golf and ice cream. Cable reception was good. The internet was strong. If you're just popping on the net for quick emails it's fine, but it keeps asking you to accept the terms if you're on for a while. Over all, we enjoyed our stay. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I like this park even though there are things about it that bother me. On this trip we were able to set up face to face with the couple we were traveling with. This gave us a nice area with our awnings almost touching to set up our outdoor area. The sites are short and narrow and with a large fifth wheel the roads are difficult to maneuver around the trees and make the tight corners. One thing that I found strange is that on Columbus Day weekend they required the three days to be charged to your credit card as a non refundable deposit. They also wanted to charge an additional $10.00 to guarantee and hold a specific site for you. Since I was not told of this requirement when I booked and it is not stated anywhere on their website I did not have to pay this fee. This KOA is in a good place to access the Delaware Water Gap and all the attractions nearby. The staff are nice and they will deliver firewood right to your site for you. They had a wonderful pig roast on Saturday night for $8.00 per person and it seemed like the whole campground attended. Wi-Fi is the best that I have experienced at any campground I have been in this year. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We traveled here Labor Day Weekend. The staff was helpful, getting us to our site in a timely manner. The roads in the campgrounds are narrow and tricky to maneuver. Our site gave us plenty of room but the campgrounds were crowded and there were lines at the washrooms not having enough to accommodate the crowd they had on hand. We were close to the activities we had planned, paintball, the Garlic Festival and the river so this was an ideal location. The sites are close together so there is constant noise or activities around you. I would stay here again as this is a better campground than a couple others we stayed at in the area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I have stayed in their cabins before, this time I stayed in their new Lodge. What a beautiful upgrade: bathroom, TV, fridge, indoor table, microwave and sink inside. The most fun I have had camping in a long time. The staff was so helpful. They brought us to our lodge (which was very clean), and showed us how to work everything, then stopped by later in the evening to make sure we we didn't have questions. Firewood and ice was delivered. Garbage was picked up. This is a full-service camp experience!! We camped here in a Campground Cabin.
[ 4 / 10 ]
We arrived at the park and checked in only to find out that when I changed our reservations to a 50 amp we were never told by phone at that time that they were going to charge me more for the upgrade. They are very pet friendly but even though they do not allow certain breeds, we saw them at the camp ground anyway. They are over priced since they do not have full hookup. Visitors are charged $10.00 per person per day which is a lot of money. The sites were tight and the roads were narrow. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 6 / 10 ]
Not up to usual KOA standards. Maybe I was expecting too much. I only asked for a place to park for the night and the ability to drain and flush my tanks on the last day of our trip. They could have told me on the phone that I would need 50 feet of hose to reach running water from the almost inaccessible dump site, But they didn't. What they did was make sure they got my credit card number because "they would be leaving for the day before four o'clock". I can understand that they want all the revenue possible but if they can't provide basic services they should close for the winter. We camped here in a Motorhome.
My boyfriend and I wanted to get in one last night of camping before wrapping it up for the season. We arrived early and were greeted kindly. Since it was off season and no one was on our site the desk clerk let us check in early. The site was tight, but there was enough room for the 19'10 hybrid trailer, TV and the picnic table. The site had new gravel. I saw the playground, and it looked new and well kept. This campground has some cabins that appear to be recently built. We used the dump station by the office, and with such a small trailer we didn't have any problems. At this time of the year I didn't see any hanging branches. I did see a huge motorhome towing a matching enclosed trailer parked along the back row, and no branches were touching it. We did use the cable which came in great. I'm not sure if I would like this campground in the summer with the sites so close, but I would definitely camp here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
They should have never accepted a 45' rig at this campground! The interior roads are narrow and it is impossible to make most of the turns without having first unhooked your vehicle. We were only here for night and hadn't planned on unhooking. In addition, there are tree trunks, boulders and low lying branches to make your drive just a bit more challenging. The pull-thrus are so narrow and the trees are in just the right spot that there was no way to get out without backing out of the site! We will certainly won't be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed 2 nights with my family. The sites we stayed in were very narrow and long. Not a great combination considering you would typically setup your campsite next to your trailer and not in front or behind. We had about 4 feet of space between the edge of the extended awning and the next campsite, and I parked as far to the drivers side as I could. Small. Our site was typical of the 40 or so sites in the center of the campground. We were in site 107. The camp store was typical. The employees were nice and friendly which is the best thing we can say about our stay. The Men's bathrooms didn't smell very clean, though they looked clean. My wife said the women's room (by the park office) was disgusting. She was there just prior to the 11AM cleaning time. No sewer hookups, but thy did have a honey dipper service and a dump site neither of which we took advantage of. The dump site by the park office appeared to be on the crest of a hill which gave me cause for concern in emptying my tanks properly. The playground was old and needs updating and the miniature golf course was decent. There wasn't a miniature train as depicted on the web site. We didn't partake of any of the activities they had going. It is about 10 minutes to Bushkill Falls which is why we were there. So that was very nice. We probably would not stay there again for the price we paid. GPS directions had us about 1/2 mile short of the campground on the road leading to the campground so stick with it! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very nice and quiet campground. Definitely family oriented. Our only complaint was pricing. We stayed two nights at full price. That's to be expected, but the prices are high for the area and this was not a holiday weekend. We asked for a late checkout on Sunday. We got an extra two hours for $20, payable in advance. When we were getting ready to leave we had a problem getting one of the stabilizing jacks on our rig to retract. We called for roadside assistance, but by the time we got a call back, it was past 2 PM. We went to the office to let them know what was going on. The campground was practically empty by this time of day. Only a few seasonal sites were occupied and a few workcampers remained. They charged us for another whole night because we were there past the checkout time! Not a very consumer friendly park policy. That being said, every one of the workcampers we met were great. In fact, it was one of them that came to our assistance and helped get our jack retracted. We were out of the campground by just a little after 3 PM, but we paid for another whole night. It's a shame: nice campground, but pricing policy will keep us away. Sad way to do business in times like this. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were there for 4 days. The site we were given evidently was a filled in drainage area as everything was soaked all the time with a small stream in the rear. No shade, one of the dump stations was clogged up, no activities to speak of, saw the tracks for the mini train they advertised but no train, no baby swings, no rubber matting under the swing sets, etc. etc. When we did leave and went to the one working dump station, there was no running water to clean off our hoses. We will never go back to this campground again. We were totally shocked that this was a KOA. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Entrance could be missed but not as bad as stated. Drive is narrow but not blind so each coach can see each other. We had a pull through and getting in not bad but tree with trimmed limbs at coach roof hight would make for a very hard exit from site. No one was in the site in front so I could swing wide. It is old and they were working on new sites so may get better but I would not like to have to move a 45 ft coach in and out. I thought my 38" was tight. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a 37 year old campground that has been and continues to be renovated. New ownership began in 2006. There are currently 18 big rig pull-through sites. More are on the way. While there are no sewer connections, there are 2 dump stations. The front dump station is sized for smaller rigs (32' and less) in my opinion. The rear dump station offers an easy in and out for even the biggest rigs. If your stay is extended you may want to order up their honey wagon service. Our 50 amp power was steady and hovered around 120 volts, even when the park was full. Water pressure - well pumped - was sufficient and tasted as good as spring water. On Saturday we enjoyed a $6 "all you can eat pancakes" breakfast that included sausage, juice, milk and coffee. If you are traveling on I-80 near exit 309, just west of the New Jersey border, this KOA should be your last stop of the day. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park made my cool Labor Day very enjoyable. On Saturday night there was Bingo and an ice cream Sunday party in the mess hall for a low price of $3.00 per person. They had a great bonfire with a chipmunk character and an awesome guitar player singing on Sunday night. The staff remembers a lot of campers by name or face so you feel like you belong. The teenagers all played manhunt after dark and the younger kids played ping pong and did crafts. The free wagon ride was awesome. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The entrance is directly adjacent to a home. As the entrance is not well marked it is hard to tell which is the entrance to the park and the one to the home. The entrance drive is narrow and two RVs could have difficulty passing in and out at the same time. The nuts and bolts of a good campground are in place, but the follow-through is questionable. The pool lacks adequate deck furniture and the washrooms were not well cleaned...one guest mentioned it had been well over a day since they had been cleaned. Ventilation in the washrooms was poor. The advertised free Wi-Fi which is anemic at best and the low signal can only be picked up by sitting outside the office or in the pavilion across from the office. This is one of the poorest KOAs we have visited. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice campground with level spacious sites. The new owners are making many improvements. Bathrooms are clean. No sewer hookups but dump station is accessible and they do have pump out service. Staff is very friendly and helpful. We stayed four days and wished we had another four days to stay. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I believe that this campground is now under new ownership and will be open year round. Hopefully the new management will fix the problem at the entrance where it looks like there are two driveways - one of them goes to a private home and the other to the campground. Another problem is the turn into sites 93-102. Very easy to miss and ending up having to make another loop. Sites were fairly spacious, staff friendly, restrooms clean. Two dump stations. Roads were narrow. We stayed after some heavy rains so area was muddy. Not a bad place to stay during the off season. They have miniature golf and a train running during the summer season. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Sites are good size. No sewer and a slightly difficult road leading into the park for big rigs. One section of the campground is directly under high tension power lines. Not pretty there at all. The store is fairly small. Pool is also fairly small. Nicely kept and friendly staff. Our site was along the main entrance road, but was very big and fairly level. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The electricity kept going out because the breaker feeding several sites kept blowing. No sewer service but they do have 2 dump stations and supposedly a portable evacuation unit but I never saw it in use. They charged too way much for what you get. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is conveniently located off Highway #209, which is a short-cut for New Englanders heading south. The pull through sites are level and the park is quiet. Given all this, it is doubtful that we will return here again. Our complaints about this facility stem from the attitude of the staff and their pet policy. Both times we stayed (the 2nd time out of desperation), we were greeted by staff member lecturing us on the inappropriateness of trying to stay "without a prior reservation." This was an interesting attitude given that all three nights we were here, the park was no more than half full. Our second problem was based in their pet policy: namely, that dogs cannot be walked on-leash around the park, unless going-to (or coming-from) one's site and the "pet exercise area." Which (as I have indicated on the Forum) is about the size of a large bread box. I was admonished for walking our 18 lb. Welsh Terrier (on-leash and with dog bag in hand) around the corner from our site rather than heading directly for the bread-box. How a fenced square that is not more than 6' X 6' constitutes an "exercise area" eludes me. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I have to agree with the last review on this koa. We only stopped for an overnight stay. I couldn't see anyone staying any longer. Poorly lit at night very rocky and hilly sites. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Whatever you do, be very careful approaching the entrance to this park. Like so many KOA's that we have stayed in, space is tight. When approaching the entrance, what appears to be an entrance and and exit lane is, in reality, an entrance/exit LANE and a private DRIVEWAY that requires backing out into a fairly busy road..NOT FUN!! We complained inside and got a rousing chorus of affirmitives from those standing around. One gentleman said he had to unhook his toad and get his wife to stop traffic, all the while listening to the rantings of the property owner. VERY poorly marked and got NO attention. Then, while checking in, we got mired in several vehicles and had to get out ask some folks to give us a path. Then, we were assigned a site with someone already in it, who didn't want to move, so we took a site without full hookups, just to finally settle down. I hope I never have to stay in another KOA, we have had so many bad experiences there. They did have good cable, for what that is worth. We think KOA should stand for Kid-filled, Overpriced, and Ancient. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This campground is the worst one I've been to. Everything was overgrown and rundown looking. The management wasn't very friendly. The roof was falling off the office building. The bathrooms were never cleaned the whole weekend. People in the campground were very noisy, very late at night. No activities scheduled. Playground was falling apart. A lot of permanent sites that look like nobody has been to in years. A few of the permanent sites had a very foul odor coming from them. Would never camp here again. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.

We wanted to go to a local campground to try out our new TT. For some reason someone in our group of 4 travel units picked this place. We all agreed we would never be back. Our sites were located in the first section (just right of the entrance). All gravel sites -- all only 8 ft wide. Most were covered with weeds & grass had not been cut in 3-4 weeks. Several sites had poison ivy right at the water hook up. We did drive around and check the rest of the CG out. Mostly permanents - not even seasonals. All interior roads are in desperate need of repair -- full of bumps and gullies - barely passable in a truck, let alone pulling a 5th wheel or TT. LOTS of run down trailers in the CG -- some looked like they had not seen use in 10 years. Full of leaves, garbage, furniture tossed about the insides, etc. Rental units old and not maintained. Huge junkyard of trailers within site of interior roads. Dumpsters were jam packed and garbage was laying all over the ground - don't think they had pick-up within 2 months. Store had lots of stuff in it but not the basics - they did not have tea or sugar. Minigolf course was not maintained and unplayable. No activities. The pool was clean and there were a few people in it. I did not venture into the bathrooms. Overall I would say that this is the worst of campgrounds. Would ABSOLUTELY encourage everyone to find another campground. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We rented one of their trailers. It was falling apart, dirty and full of bugs. I had to have them come clean it again and I still used a whole jar of lysol. I could not bring any food in because black ants were everywhere. The water was very smelly. The toilets didn't work well and we had to clean up overflows and when we called them they just gave us a plunger. We wanted our money back because the whole place is so run down with trailers just left to rot away. They advertise a canopy in the pool area and it is a tarp thrown over metal poles. The pool could have used a coat of paint. The owners are very nasty. I would never go back and would not recommend it to anyone. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here only because they did not require a week stay. The site we were assigned was so out of level we could not get our rig level. They were accommodating in that we could move around till we found one that worked for us. They had considerable empty sites! We wound up backed up to the road, very noisy traffic. Across from our site was an area that apparently had many stationary units in the past and was in the process (maybe) of being reclaimed for regular sites. We did take their 'hay ride' through the grounds, It is a very large place, but there are too many people that have made this their home. I honestly believe that some people have no where else. We will not return We camped here in a Motorhome.
Has potential, needs some cleaning up. Sites were huge and level. Game room was nice, store was well stocked. This was nicer than we expected and nicer than some higher rated campgrounds. We may return again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Not a good place to camp. Very outdated and the bathrooms smelled like sewer. Not very camper friendly and lots of outdated campers hanging around. I would NOT travel here again but you never know until you try. We left on sunday morning and no one was at the store to drop off our credit card for the gate so we left it with a lady sitting on the porch reading the newspaper it looked like she was a permanent one funny thing is she had 4 other credit cards for the others that left in a hurry too. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
When we finally reached this campground after several miles on a long, narrow road we found we could not make the turn in to the driveway without backing out into the street and then driving over their landscaped area. The person in charge (the only person there) was a snotty 15 year old boy who was apparently capable of speaking only in one syllable words. We requested a water & electric only site as we were only staying one night and were assigned a site that turned out to be in an area of seasonals with horrid, filthy, old campers. The interior roads were narrow, steep and deeply rutted. I could not avoid scraping the side of my RV on tree branches. The site was impossibly small for our 38 ft fifth wheel even if I had considered staying there. When I returned to the desk to get another site, the 15 year old boy was surly and rude. “I just gave you what you wanted” was his response. He offered us a site with full hookups for an additional $5 in a flat, treeless, muddy field. Rather than get another site I got a refund and left. This place obviously does not want your business. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We visited this campground in Sept. We rented one of their cabins for the weekend. When we arrived they had already closed for day, when I made my reservations I told them We would arrive around 6 she said thats fine they close at 6 since it was after Labor day. As we pulled up after driving 2 1/2 hrs, no one there. Had to knock on the trailer at the end and ask if he knew a number. Finally we got let in. After registering we went to our cabin. Walked in and Wow, How Dirty was the floor. Looked like we were wearing shoes all weekend. That should have been my first indication this wasn't going to be very good. Next morning went to take showers. No water pressure at ALL!! Just TRICKLING water. My daughter said what a chore taking a shower. The Bathroom was not clean at all, faucets very dirty and toilets were awful. The campground not kept up at all. A lot of old trailers setting around and old cars with flats. The people who are supposed to take care of campground just sitting around all day. Not very friendly. When talking to a lady next to our cabin she said she camps a lot in the summer, like us, and said this was by far the WORST campground she has ever been to. I have to agree. I was very disappointed. I have never been to a campground like this. The showers were enough to kill the whole weekend. Would not recommend this campground ever. I had sent them a email when I got home but no reply. I have to do something about this campground so I thought I would come here to vent. I spent over $200 for that weekend trip for 6 of us! We camped here in a Campground Cabins.

Family and friends camped here over the Holiday weekend. There were a few things that bothered us. One) The bathroom facilities - there were two stalls by the store. Not only were they teaming with mosquitos (the structure was built right over a marshy stream) but someone had sprayed mosquito spray all over the place (even on the tiolet seat). There was only one other set of restrooms which was located near the playground. This was also the location of the only showers. Since there were only three women's shower stalls for the whole campground, there was often a wait in the morning. The water was either cold or scalding hot or cold. Sometimes the water pressure was sufficient, other times it came out in a trickle. Two) the playground - there was a rather mature poison ivy vine growing on the wooden playset. I cleaned up the trash the first morning as there was stuff that I thought could either harm children or just make a general mess (such as an aluminum can with its top torn off that someone had been using to set off fireworks, or marshmellows strewn about). I didn't do the trash pickup the second morning because they didn't restock the empty papertowels in the women's room (which I used to pick up the trash) until after 10am. The third morning I did see someone else picking up the trash. Don't know if he was a fellow camper or a campground official. Three) The miniature golf. The golf course was so poorly maintained I was absolutely shocked to find out they charged you to use it! Four) The pool was supposed to be opened that Saturday. By Sunday the foam was still so thick on the surface that I went to inquire about it at the store. I was appalled to find out that they considered it available for use! I was even further shocked when they told me it was only 48 degrees! I can't believe such conditions wouldn't pose a significant hazard to young swimmers! Certainly there was no way my four-year-old was getting in there. Five) there didn't seem to be any monitoring of unruly campers. Campers and residents played loud music and were generally noisy well into the night. A fellow camper related a incident that she had witnessed around 2:30 am where an apparently drunk or under-the-influence camper was ranting, raving, and cursing for 45 minutes looking for someone who had apparently almost run over his friend. Six) As another reviewer mentioned, there are very run-down camping sites that need to be cleaned up. It's a shame because the campground had a lot of potential, but my other family members and I are in agreement that we will not be returning to this one. We camped here in a Tent.

Campground is not in fantastic condition although the showers and bathrooms were clean. The store is well stocked. Most of the rental sites are all in the wide open areas, not much shade. There are a lot of old run down seasonal units. Most should just be knocked down. The people are pleasant and helpful, but they need to put a lot more effort into sprucing up the place. It is in a beautiful part of the state with a lot to do in the area so it could be a great destination in the future. The fishing pond was covered with water grass. There was also a sewer line back-up about 2 sites away from us over the Memorial Day weekend. We will not be back until some future positive reviews are posted. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here in July. Lots of activities (arts/crafts, bingo, hayrides, potluck dinner, karaoke ) All of
the activities were free. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Sites were nice and large. Bathrooms were cleaned a few times a day. We camped here in a camper.
This was our first visit to the campground for Halloween weekend. The place is well kept and clean. The owners and seasonals are very friendly. We did not use the playground or the showers because it was very cold. The sites are separated but on the smaller size. I would try to request a specific site next time. The owners seem to put everyone next to each other rather than spread out. The owners also seem to be extremely understanding and welcoming to children and adults with special needs. Immediately upon walking in the store with my son with autism, one of the owners spoke directly to him and cleared a spot on the counter so he could place his toy there and play. This made my day, actually. There is a fishing pond across the street and a short walk down the road that is well stocked. Activities offered were organized, well attended and fun. We plan on returning next year. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
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. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We were very pleased with this campground. The owners were very pleasant to talk to, and they were very accommodating. They are truly a dog friendly campground. We have two german shepards. One is extremely large and intimidating to look at, but he is very well behaved. The owners took the time to get to know him and fell in love with him. The campground also sells discount tickets to Bushkill Falls, which is dog friendly too. The sites are very nice. We were in site E3 which was a tight fit for our 34' 5th wheel, but it did work. We would definitely camp here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice clean park. Well kept and maintained. Lots of hills and trees with the sites close together. Don't expect satellite, but cable TV was available. Best suited for Class C's and travel trailers. Lots to do and a good place for kids. Many activities. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Best place! Immaculately clean park and facilities. Bathrooms dated but clean. The family of owners were so helpful and friendly. We would recommend this highly and plan to return in the future. The kids loved the pavilion and the ping pong, checkers etc. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Mountain Vista Campground is just as charming in person as on their website! The employees are very nice, personable, and really make sure your stay is pleasant. We stayed at B12, which was a corner pull through lot. The area was clean when we arrived, had plenty of room to sit outside, have a fire without feeling restricted. During our stay we walked the entire campground and found it to be very clean and family friendly. Everyone, including the seasonals said hello and made you feel welcomed. There are two small parks for children to play at, an outdoor game room, tennis and basketball courts, and a little all in one fitness machine. The pond is across the street, but relatively clean looking. We did not get the chance to fish this trip but maybe next time. I highly recommend this campground and know we will be going back in the fall. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Camped here for two nights. Park was very clean and well kept. Although busy over the weekend, quiet hours seemed to be enforced as we really didn't hear anything after then. Had no problems finding campground using directions from Woodalls. Site was shady and cool even in the 90 degree heat. Kids had plenty to do with planned activities and the recreation on site. Will visit again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a clean campground built on the side of a mountain. You don't want to walk around the park much due to steep hills. Geared toward children. Our site was right in front B-1, not where you want to be, very noisy and busy. Sites are somewhat level but tight. They are shaded. Staff member was rude at check in when she couldn't believe I handed her a credit card at check in. They don't take credit cards which is not mentioned on their web site or printed material. If I have a reason to camp in the area again I would conciser here again if I couldn't find something else. I don't like to be treated like I'm stupid. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very clean park. Site was almost level. Utilities weren't marked real well but worked ok. Cable TV and WiFi good. Only real complaint is the glaring street lamps at night, kind of ruins the outdoor experience. We were here during the week so it was pretty quiet, don't know about weekends. Lots of seasonal campers. My navigation system (Ford F-150) took me through the middle of East Stroudsburg on RT 209 Business, so if you have a big rig you may want to check your route. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Campground is seemingly built on a mountainside. Not one to walk around, unless you're a hiker or climber. We drove around. Nice place, well kept. Some sites were almost perfect level, others not so much. We had to bring out the yellow plastic squares for the tires for our site. No biggie as we've done that many times before. Part of camping. The staff was VERY friendly. Campground is clean and apparently well run. Only complaint was the electricity seemed kind of old. We had two "brownouts," but then the temperatures were in the 90's. Pool was very nice. I'd return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Just arrived home from a lovely time at Mountain Vista. We stayed here for 5 nights and found the grounds to be immaculate, the staff friendly, and the area a great place to be. There are so many attractions that we wish we could have stayed longer. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Wow: what a family vacation nightmare. First, don't follow the GPS because it's wrong. Don't call the park office for driving instructions because they will be very rude. They only take cash or check. We were quoted a price of $319.00 for 5 days and at check in it was changed to $366.00. When we questioned it, the guy said let me break it down for you, like we were stupid. The camp roads were all gravel, some of the roads were steep. Some of the camp sites were the size of a shoe box. The bathrooms were very nasty and had standing water through out. The pool was a great place to go till 2 workers came in and started scrubbing the side of the pool with Chlorox. Like you want the kids injesting that. Also don't go in and forget to register your car, cause they will hunt you down to pay the additional $5.00. The only positive thing I have to say about Mountain Vista, is that the TV and WiFi were good and the other campers were great. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Just got back from this campground today. Our site (C12) was a back in gravel site that was not level front to back or side to side. Took quite a bit of leveling to get it right. There were weeds growing up through the gravel all over our site. The back of our site looked out over a steep hill and down onto the road. There were alot of loose rocks and even cinderblock shoring up the back of the site: really not too safe. The roads in the campground are also gravel, but really in need of maintenance: spots where the gravel had worn away and many ruts. Used the bathroom behind the office: had no liquid soap, just a bar sitting in a pool of water on the sink, no towels to dry hands and litter and water all over the floor. Playground was outdated. The store was bare bones. The pool was ok, but small and not much area around the pool to sit. One more thing: the wood we purchased at the campground wasn't too good. It took a long time to get started and was hard to keep the fire going. I know this must sound nit-picky, so I'll add that the office staff were really nice, friendly and helpful with directions getting here and home. But we won't be staying here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very pleasant staff. Pretty mountain setting. Little tight for 40-footer but doable. Many folks appear to stay here for extended periods. Sites have more elbow room than most, and many back into the surrounding forest. Excellent cable TV and WiFi. It's in a ways off the main highway, but you are thereby nearer to the Water Gap park area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was one of the last campsites we wanted to try this season in our quest for the perfect weekend getaway. We really were excited to finally get the opportunity to spend the weekend since it was booked all summer. We soon realized that was because the place was loaded with seasonal campers. The first annoying thing was setting up the reservation in which they take checks or cash only meaning that you either mail them a check or hand over all the bank routing information and they draw your deposit directly from your account. We were there the last weekend of the season (10/31) and the cost per night for a back in site was the full $45 per night. Very much over priced for the services they provide even if it was the regular season. Average pool, small rec room, a pool table outside, a tennis court and basketball court. We had our dog with us and they are not dog friendly at all meaning there is no area for you to exercise your dog, you just walk him through the park. They advertise Wi-Fi but we were only half way through the park and did not receive any signal at all and all of the leaves were down. I won't knock it too bad since the sites were fairly level, covered with crushed stone, cable TV was good as well as the water pressure. The place is heavily wooded at all of the sites so in the summer I'm sure it's very comfortable. However, we will be scratching this one off of our list. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was our first stay at this campground. From the beginning, the owners were extremely friendly and the store was not overpriced like many other places we stayed. Our site was large enough for our 31' trailer with 2 slides. There was plenty to do from bingo to movie night for the kids. The quiet hours are strictly enforced. The biggest problem we faced at the campground was that my six year old was not able to ride his bike because of the hills and the gravel roads. I did not have any problems getting directions from Google Maps. There is plenty to do in that area from local flea markets to state parks to outlet shopping. Since it was Labor Day weekend, the traffic was a nightmare. After speaking to many seasonals, who were always nice and made you feel welcome, they offered advice as to where to go and what to avoid during holiday weekends. We would definitely go back to this campground. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was a nice well kept wooded campground. The sites were not expansive but there was plenty of room for slides and awnings. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. There were lots of cable stations and Wi-Fi work well. We'd stay there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an OK park that just is over-priced. The bathroom in the front is crude and has no shower or sink to wash your hands. The fishing pond small. They charge extra for kids, which in a park like this is ridiculous. Sites were large. I went in May which should be cheaper but $44 a night for my wife and I and one child is absurd. I met a family w/ 5kids. That would be $68 a night! This place would be a great $28 a night campground. No wonder it was half empty. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We found this to be a lovely campground. The roads were easy to navigate and the owners were simply delightful. We spoke with a worker named Jason and he chatted with us for some time without making us feel rushed. You have to come and see the forsythia bushes here. They are plentiful and beautiful. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The campground is okay and I had no problems or issues to contend with. The sites are not large nor are they small, about average size. There is no laundry facility, but one is in the works. The bathrooms were pretty nasty with standing water on the floor. There were no urinals in the mens room, but perhaps there is a plan to replace? Access to and from the campground is excellent. There is access for all size rigs, but I will say it is tight due to the number of trees. A spotter is a must. The wireless internet worked great! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Came again for the Halloween weekend, this time we stayed for a few weekends on the gas saver plan they had. Each weekend was a lot of fun and made it to a local balloon festival which was also great. Staff was great in helping us find things to do in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I booked this campground based on many reviews and was a little disappointed. Our back in site was large and shaded but many of the pull-through sites seemed quite small. There are a lot of seasonal sites that were a complete eyesore and looked abandoned. My husband is a tall guy that used our shower for the first time in 3 years because one use of their pull-chain showers was enough for him. He said the bathroom floors were constantly covered in water and the men's room by the store and pool did not even have a sink. This is the first place I have ever been to that did not have laundry facilities. Small but clean pool. Great fishing at the lake. Owners seemed very nice and dedicated but unfortunately I think we will try somewhere else next time. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We have a 38' Fifth Wheel with 3 slide outs. We told the campground this info when making our reservations and requested a pull through site but none were available. They put us in what they promised was a large easy back-in site. We arrived after dark in the rain. This campground is beautifully treed and very hilly with large boulders scattered about. To get to our site we had to go up to the top of a hill, make a severe 180 degree turn, all the while trying to miss the trees and boulders in order to make our way onto the road where our site was. On the way down the steep hill, we discovered our site. Boulders, trees, other RVs made it impossible to back into our site - in the dark in the rain. Keep in mind we had to back up UP HILL - pushing 15,000 lbs of trailer - to try to get into this site. Our truck started to spit transmission fluid to the point our transmission failed. NIGHTMARE! If you have a large trailer or 5th - get a pull through at this campground! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Stayed here over the campground halloween weekend. The foliage was beautiful and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful helping make our vacation a blast. Used wireless internet over the weekend and was impressed by how fast and good the coverage was. Park was completely wooded and along a hillside, made us feel like we were out in the woods. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Not our best choice for a campground. The desk staff was quite indifferent when we asked questions. We checked in in the middle of a downpour, late (about 8:00 pm) and asked if anyone could show us to our campsite (we were never there before & the signage is very poor). The did offer to help us, but the drove their cart to the front of the site and said, "here it is" and left. Did not offer to help back in to a very narrow site, on a hill, located on a corner of the camp road. Fortunately, neighboring campers came to our rescue. Nothing much to do there. We decided there were nicer places to stay. Certainly where the staff is much more hospitable. We unfortunately will not return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Trying to find the park was quite difficult; even after 5 calls to the park. The address listed is not valid for GPS Units and took us way out of the way. Staff was rude, telling us they have "disclaimer on their website" not to use GPS. Eileen answered the campground's phone and gave us the wrong directions. It was a nightmare. Then the young kid on staff told us that the "Woodalls directory" as all we needed for adequate directions -- even though it does not give a valid street address. Poor signage (found 1 sign posted ground level). The "Park Rules" do not let you use your washer & dryer, a whole lot of restrictions, time limit for "free wireless," no heaters, outside refrigerators, flood lights, bug lights, or more than two strands of lights are allowed. It's not like we were going to use all these things but we've never been to an expensive campground that put such limitations on the guest. At $47 per night, there's got to be a much better deal out there. Save yourself a headache and avoid the rude staff -- go elsewhere! We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for 2 days. First Warning - Do not try to put the address in a GPS system, I put the address in my Garmin C340 and it routed me 45 minutes away. When I called for the specific directions, the front desk warned me not to put in the GPS but it was too late. The directions they have me over the phone were perfect and we arrived an hour later. The park is close to a lot of things, from rafting, to shopping and paintball. Upon entering the park, check in was quick. Keep in mind they do not take credit/debit cards, cash only. They had someone escort us to our site which was nice. There is no way we would have found the site either. The roads leading to the site are all gravel and this park is very hilly. This park makes you feel you are in a small forest, there are trees everywhere and the sites are pretty spacious and private. We had a back in site and it had a lot of room. The Wifi was intermittent inside the camper but outside was perfect. The campground seems a bit older and needs updating but fine for just the casual camper. I'll explain updating. The bathrooms are clean and work but to take a shower, you have to pull down on a chain to get water. I did not like that. The bathrooms were clean. The pool was small and located just on the front entrance, not too private. We played a few games of pool for $1.00 per game and there were a bunch more solids than stripes and also had extra balls, not too much of a big deal but something they can spend $20 and fix especially charging $1.00 a game. There are no on site garbage cans, I did not find any near us either. We had to take the garbage out to the dumpster each day. Front desk attendants were nice. Thanks to the camper that helped us with our awning! Overall we liked the privacy of the park and they way it felt like you were in a little forest with all the beautiful trees. Would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We made last minute reservations here and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. They also offered us multiple discount coupons for the area attractions. Our spot was a little tight but not too bad. WiFi and cable TV worked great. Pool and camp store was well taken care of. Bathrooms were a bit older and could use some updates but not too bad. Many seasonal campers but they were friendly and the campground was quiet. Other comments about making reservations/payments on-line not being "secure" is questionable. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Campground was clean and had a number of activities. We enjoyed our stay here. The seasonal campers were friendly. Facilities are a bit worn but in a good repair. Staff was helpful. Our pull-thru site was plenty spacious for us and access not a problem. The only odd thing was that they do not accept credit cards. You must pay cash or use their ATM. First time we've encountered that. Overall, a nice campground that we may revisit. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was our first time at this campground and we loved it! Our site was level, shaded, and close to the store/office and pool. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We will definitely camp here again and highly recommend this campground! We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
I camped at Brandywine Meadows in July 2007. After reading the previous reviews, I had to submit an update. The park has been completely redone, shower and bath "suites" new and modern. The new pool opened in May, along with the new play area. Improvements in drainage and landscaping have upgraded the sites dramatically. Many sites are still seasonal, but you can usually get a transient spot. The owners are great and make you feel at home. Bordered by Marsh Creek State Park, the hiking and fishing are tops. This Park is actually located in Lyndell, PA, appox. 4 miles above Downingtown. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
I made a mistake with a previous review for this campground.( The last review for this year of 2007) The one I stayed in was Brandywine CREEK Campground. I will rewrite the review for the proper place. I have confirmed that Brandywine Meadows no longer exists. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We had reservations for June 13 - 17th to stay at this campground and our reservations were canceled on us on June 12th. We were directed to place deposit at their website and found the site to be unsecure. We emailed the campground and notified them of the problem and we were instructed to send in our deposit via mail on June 11th. Since we were arriving on June 13th, we asked if we could pay then. On June 12th we received a reply from the campsite notifying that our reservations for camping and the pig roast were canceled. When we tried to reconcile the problem with their staff, we were met with rudeness. When we asked for the owners names we were told that it was none of our business. We lost our plans for our vacation, as well as, celebrating Father's Day! We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Nice campground with lots of activities (a luau underway the evening we arrived). Pool looked great, but tired and traveling without kids, we didn't try it. Well-appointed store and clean grounds. Driveways and sites are a tight fit, especially for larger rigs, and our site was cheek-by-jowl with our neighbors. Nice cable TV system, but WiFi service was for zilch! It dropped us within a minute or two each time we connected. The cramped feeling and WiFi failure detracted considerably from our overnight visit. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Directions on the website brought us right to their door. The employees were friendly and very informative when asked about nearby attractions, restaurants, etc. The sites were kept clean and were level. An employee was directing the people once they checked-in since the site markings were a bit hidden thanks to the falling leaves. Also, the store was pretty well stocked considering it was late in the season (this campground is not open during winter). Planning to stay here again when we visit the area again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Where to start? When we arrived,the owners informed us that the sites we reserved are prone to flooding and since a hurricane was coming through, they let us walk around a few sites and pick what we wanted. The activites were excellent, everyone camping there and working there were friendly. Sites were very private. It's hard to imagine how much we enjoyed this place even though we got tons of rain that weekend. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The park is closing in September 2006, however I was not told this when I registered to stay at the campground. When I arrived I saw the dark green pool and was told that the pool will no longer be available. The ads for this campground stated that there were playgrounds and putt-putt golf available. The playground had been there since at least 1970 and the golf was closed all weekend long. The showers and bathrooms were very old and smelled horribly. The owner of the campground was very nice and the sites were clean and well spaced. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park is small by some standards. All the staff was Very friendly. Sites including (pull throughs)are nice size, mostly level. The camp store is very well stocked in food etc and camp supplies to handle most needs, again staff is very helpful and nice. The pool was being cleaned and refilled while we were there but looked great. The bathrooms left some thing to be desired...They were clean but the showers were a bit small, and the water controls could be improved (one control, for hot and cold with a chain) reminded me of a military post) Over all we liked this c/grnd and will return, it was orderly, and clean and seem to have a lot of permanent campers. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Arrived here late and they had our reservations waiting for us. The site was tight trying to back in my new TT but once we were settled, it was a nice, quiet campground. Great services like Wifi and cable television. A few too many seasonals but they kept the night campers away from most of the seasonal sites. Staff was friendly and we were there with another family in the site right next to us so that made it more fun. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This campground was very quiet, although it may have been due to the fact that it wasn't too busy. The people say that it isn't too busy after Labor Day, but it starts getting busy again in the month of October for the fall Foliage. When we called to make reservations two days ahead of time we asked to be near another family member who already had reservations, and they accommodated our needs without any problem. The campground sort of sits on the side of a hill and the roads are mostly stone covered, thus I would not recommend bicycle riding. The Campground store wasn't the biggest one around, but their supplies were adequate. The sites are very wooded and spaced well apart from each other. We will deinately come back here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stopped here for one night on our way to Gettysburg. As others have mentioned the campground is on a hill but it seemed like the non seasonal sites are on the lower portion of the hill so they are not too bad to get in and out of. We didn't dump our tanks but it looked like it could be a rough trip to the dump station as it was on a steep hill. The only restroom we used was by the office and it looked as though it had not been cleaned all weekend. The showers were in the restroom up the hill which was quite a hike from our site. The pool looked nice and the small fishing pond looked good. An OK place to stop for a night or two but wouldn't want to spend a week here. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Stayed just after park opened up in spring. Staff very friendly. Wasn't quite the "Mountain Vista" I had in mind. A campground on the side of a hill, hardly made me feel like I was in the Pocono's. Too many seasonals, some very old, took away from the rustic setting. Wasn't a bad place, but would look for another CG the next time I was in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We love this park. It's quiet, has shaded level sites that have plently of elbow room. The pool is not olympian size, but makes a nice place to go cool off. They offer many activities on the weekend and have basketball courts, tennis courts and vollyball and badmittion. They only reason it doesn't get a ten from me is some of the roads are steep and we wind up dragging something, either the hitch or the back skids. This was the 2nd time we have been to this campground and will be going back. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

Nice staff. Accommodated my need not to unhook because we only stayed one night while traveling. Tight fit with trees around the sites. Dump site could be a big problem for some fifth wheels. Located at back of park, when the 5th wheel is pulled to level position, tow vehicle is angled down an incline. When leaving dumpsite, rear of pick up came too close for comfort to trailer overhang. Be careful. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

Poor office hours, facilities (laundry & showers) only available to campers during office
hours. Metered showers, clean campground & family environment located in heart of Amish country. Rude owner. Campground located on riverfront and ground
dumping of grey water was encouraged. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

This is is a clean campground. ALL sites are very shaded. Sites are tight and there are many trees. These sites will test your ability to park, (Back in), your trailer; if the size doesn't get you the trees will. Sites are somewhat level but you will need to fine tune your rig. I would say about 100 sites are for the seasonal campers. Some looking pretty run down but nothing real bad. None of the seasonal sites were "Made up" like you usually see. All the people were very friendly and make you feel at home. It is very quiet and tranquil. The pool is small but again the campground is not real big. The staff was excellent and even moved my site to accommodate my request for cable TV. They will charge you extra for cable TV, or if you plan to run your A/C. They have some planned activities but not a full itinerary. They had entertainment at night with a DJ that included contests and games and he was great. The office/store is small and RV supplies are
extremely limited with them not having two small and basic things I needed. The pond for fishing is small and needs attention. Overall this is a small, friendly park that's clean and quiet. If your looking to relax, this is a nice place to spend a weekend. We will probably return and mostly because everyone was so nice. We camped here in a camper.

We stayed there and it was very nice. Sites are small, but level. Lots of seasonal campers there -- some new and modern, some looking pretty run down. Nice tennis court and basketball and nice pool too. Friendly staff, small fishing pond, fire rings and tables at each site. Good location in the East Stroudsburg area. I would return here again. We camped here in a camper.

When calling for my reservation, I requested full hookups, which when I arrived meant water & electric. The bathrooms were locked most of the time and were filthy when open. There were young people tenting across from us who had no bathroom facilities a good deal of the time so were put in a position of dealing the best way they could. The campground itself was not unpleasant w/both open and wooded sites. You can however be sure I will not return. We camped here in a camper.
Stayed at Timothy Lake South April 8 - April 11. Place was empty since it was out of season. The campground is well maintained except for the bathrooms. The bathrooms are very outdated and need major work. The sites are pretty level, but the pull through sites are pretty narrow. They are all long enough for you to enjoy though. Overall, I liked the campground and plan on going back again this summer. We were in site 26, and that entire row seemed pretty good. Not a lot of shade, so in summer, most sites will be hot. All in all, good place. Would give it a 9 if the bathrooms were half as good. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Staff were very friendly and helpful staff. We had a back-in site on gravel/grass. We backed up to a thick tree line on the upper section of the park. We had full hook up with 50 amp electric. The site was fairly level. Hook ups were good. There is a picnic table and fire ring. Not much privacy between sites in this section. We choose this section for satellite reception. Other sections have trees and scrubs between sites. A total of 297 sites. Very big friendly. The road off route 209 to the park, about 4 miles, is a little narrow, but no problem if you take your time. Many amenities as usual at Thousand Trails parks: pool, clubhouse, planned activities, etc. There was a covered dish pig roast over Labor Day, free for all guests. Timothy Lake North has an indoor water park and outdoor pool. â€śNorthâ€ť is for small RVs only. There are about 125 cabins for rent in the north section. North is where the lake is located. Staying at the South park, and you can use the North park. There is a very clean laundry in the club house, with 3 washers and dryers. Our Verizon phone worked well with 3G, 3-4 bars most times. We did have a few days were we had trouble connecting to the Internet. One of our neighbors had the same problem. I thought it was our computer, but it was the phone. TV over the air was good, received all major networks. The park was installing a new Wi-Fi system. Not sure, though, if there is a charge, or if it is up and running. They were installing some new antennas by the club house. Acres and acres to walk your dogs. Very dark, little to no light at all at night. Very quiet even over Labor Day when the park was full. Very tiny book exchange in the clubhouse. This is a great park. Very clean and being well maintained. Sure it can have some upgrades, but almost all parks can use a little upgrading. The only problem we encountered was our surge guard shut down twice during peak hours when the park was full. But it came back on in minutes. The small lake is supposed to have some good fishing, but we didnâ€™t give it a try. The water park is a big bonus, with an indoor lazy river. The north campground is about a mile from the south section. Every day we had deer and a few geese walking through the park. In the lower section of the park about 30 sites are being used for storage. There are a few of these sites with 2 to up to 4 RVs on some of them. Some look like they have been there for a very long time. There are few restaurants and pizza shops starting about two miles from the resort. Five miles from the park there are many more restaurants. Major grocery shopping is about five miles to a â€śSuper Foodtownâ€ť .Large flea market across from food store. The park has several miles of paved roads for walking or biking. Bonus; you are in the beautiful Pocono Mountains. Just on the border of Delaware Water Gap National Park. Can't understand the last couple of negative reviews. Just because its not where you want it to be is no reason to give it a negative review. Road construction is not the fault of the RV Park.We will be back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a true rip off park. There are no great places to stay in this area, but we would try to find a Costco, Wal-Mart, etc., before staying here again. We were told on the phone that we could pick our site: would take us in a golf cart. The park is approximately 12 miles from the highway, and roads are under construction and with detours. No one told us. When we arrived, we were told to take our 45' with tow and find a spot. I asked if we could use the golf cart to find the site, and they said it wasn't available. We were told there were many satellite sites (wanted to watch the Olympics). We walked over and it took over an hour to find a site that we could fit on without a lot of low hanging tree branches, and we had to unhook the tow. Sites are not level. We were not comfortable here and will not return. We picked this park because of the one favorable review we saw. We certainly can't recommend it. It seems they know they only have you for one night. Rate should be around $25, just to get off the highway. Staff is not helpful at all. We camped here in a Motorhome.
There is nothing to complain about here. The interior roads are all paved and in excellent condition. There is a variety of sites, which are well spaced. Good water, good power, scenic, pool, playground, definitely a great place to camp in the Poconos. Verizon phone service & MiFi work reasonably well. I don't understand the last two poor reviews, we didn't see any of that. The staff were present and very accommodating. Lots of activities for kids and teens, including an indoor water park just up the road at Timothy Lake North. This is one of our favorite Outdoor World parks. Only negative is that for a park this large there are only three washers and dryers. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Upon arrival, no workers were available to check us in. Luckily a worker from Timothy Lake North was there and was able to assist us. We had reservations so that really surprised me that no one was available. My husband and I both used the bathrooms and found them to be dirty and unkept condition. We will not be using the showers! Sites were OK, but in need of yard care and tree trimming. Very disappointed! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We arrived on the 16th of July and planned to stay until Monday the 19th. When we got to our site, there was all kinds of garbage on the ground, in the fire ring, broken tent stakes and beer caps all over the ground, and a aluminum tin in the barbeque, that was filled to the top with water, old hamburgers and hotdogs and about 30 dead flys! One the workers came over and removed it and we continued to set up. The place was all around dirty and we did not feel comfortable, which is not something that we are used to in a campground. We had dinner around 8:30pm and fell a sleep around 11pm. When we awoke at 8:30am, we noticed that someone had stolen our cooler along with 24 bottles of alcohol! With that my wife started looking around and found a pile of partially melted ice along with a few bottles laying about 30 yards from our camper! At that time we decided that we did not feel safe staying here and I went to the office and demanded my money back. I received a full refund and we left. This ruined our weekend completely. I spoke to the NorthEast manager of the property and he said that there was nothing else that he could do for us! BEWARE: Anyone thinking about going to Timothy Lake North, DO NOT GO! And if you do decide to give it a shot make sure you bring a gun to protect yourself and family from the Hoodlums that they seem to cater too! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
These are actually two Outdoor World Parks, Timothy Lake North and South. If your camping rig is anything over 25 feet, don't even consider staying at the North campground. It is an older park, set up for rental and ownership cabins, with few workable campsites. However, South campground is just a mile down the road and with almost 300 sites, has just about any kind of site you want, some in the open and some with deep shade. If you want both satellite and WiFi, be sure to have a compass. WiFi signal originates from the registration/store/activity building. The pool is nice. North has a huge indoor water park and an outdoor pool with a water feature, big game room, impressive store, food service, and is open year-round. If you don't want a loud, party atmosphere (very kid/teen oriented), you can stay at South and still use all the activities at North. There is much to see and do in the Poconos, and we enjoyed our stay very much. Don't expect much from Timothy "Lake". It is small and covered with pond scum and vegetation. We stayed at the South campground and would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed at Timothy Lake North for three nights. We were a little disapointed with the campground itself as it was not as scenic as we had hoped it would be. There were not a lot of trees, so most of the trailers/tents were out in the open. It was very hot and there was no shade. However, our kids enjoyed the water park, although a very large part of the kiddie pool was unusable. Many of the games in the game room were not working. The showers were clean. Very inexpensive. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was our first stay at a membership type of campground - the low cost couldn't be beat. Timothy Lake North had an indoor waterpark which my kids loved but I preferred the outdoor pool at "South." There also appeared to be lots of non-campers who came from the city to stay in the cabins at "North." South was much quieter and had more Outdoor World members but much of the park was empty. Most surprising was the number of closed pop-ups being stored on sites that had grass that was more than a foot tall. It was a fun but strange weekend - kind of like visiting another camping planet. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
