    Stayed here in the winter and had a great experience - location is pretty and feels woodsy even as it is convenient to routes into NYC. Sites are tightly spaced but wasn’t a bother given it was the off season.

When we left end of May 2021 they were getting the pool ready to open. Supposedly buildings and pool will be opening post-covid soon. Very relaxing. Sites pretty level. Good water pressure, clean power (I used 50 amp). Sewer connection was no longer perfectly round, had to use a donut to get a good seal - it wouldn't screw in. If you like relaxing in nature, this park is great.

We are Thousand Trails members, so can park rig in huge waiting area and walk around to look at sites before picking one. Many people like the ridgeline sites, but no pull throughs up there. We chose site 41, below the ridge, and had pull through with no neighbors Sunday through Thursday. Felt private and quiet. 3) Did not use wifi so cannot comment4) While T-Mobile service was weak, it was fast enough for calls/texting/internet, but I doubt you could stream anything there. Variable service from 0 bars (rare) to four bars (rare) so I give an average of 2-3 bars of 4GLTE5) Many deer at dusk in campsites! Some local cats around as well. Seemed mostly well maintained. Staff was friendly and COVD-conscious.6) We did not use pool or most of other onsite facilities - pretty self-containedCons:1) Roads approaching campground are not really an issue, but some may feel uncomfortable with the twists and turns. We are a 42' long fifth wheel and we did fine on the local roads coming up from Rt. 209 on Winona Falls Rd.2) A little off the grid but enough service that we could still make calls and work with the T-Mobile signal there. Service may be spotty but I have seen worse!3) Not sure weekends, but very quiet when we were there. Some of the grass had not been cut for a while and it was high at our site. They were cutting when we were there and left our site alone without cutting when we were there.

If you come into the stay understanding it's a TT and have realistic expectations (number of permanent sites, mediocre site quality), it's not bad. Is it Shangri-La? No, however is one of the better TT locations I've been. This TT allows you to choose your own site, which honestly all TTs should allow. We had site 16, which was up on the ridge, and definitely the best section to be in. It is a quieter section of the park and had nice sunrise/sunset views. Grocery stores, gas stations, restaurants and the usual fast food joints were 10'ish minutes away. Bandwidth Speed:AT&T (Pepwave router with X-POL external antenna): 40mbps down, 10mbps up.

It's a pick your own campground, but the person at the front desk knew nothing about any of the sites. We were able to figure out some from the map, but it would have been nice to have some guidance about which sites are pull-through, have better service, etc.The campground was really quiet, though that could have been since we were there the first week in December. It seemed like most people there were annuals though in the middle of the week, almost nobody was there. The campground is open year-round with water/sewer.The internet service was mediocre, but our trailer booster helped immensely and it ended up not being an issue when we used that. The service on our phones was pretty bad, but existent.The drive in was...complicated. RV Trip Wizard routed us away from 209 and in such a way that we needed to turn around and also drive some extremely narrow and windy roads. It seemed like coming in on 209 would have been easier, but we didn't drive all the way back up to I-84 to verify.

Nothing particularly special (or particularly bad) about the park itself, but I liked the staff's friendliness and efficiency. Such a beautiful area around the Delaware Water Gap, and I consider Milford, PA, a hidden treasure. One can find more remote camps along Hwy 209 if you want to boondock or want more basic camping or need time out of the Thousand Trails system. Only one quibble: the COVID policy regarding laundry requires users to check out a key from the office. Only one user at a time limited to office hours makes getting in a bit challenging. However, we found the Wash-a-Lot Laundromat on Business-209 easy to get to, spacious, and inexpensive. Oh, and I agree with the cell-service issues from the review below. My wife bought the 3-dollar-a-day internet service but we still had issues.

This is a first-come, first-serve park in the Thousand Trails system so we had to drive around looking for a spot. The check-in process alerted us to the sites that had issues such as no water or cable (there were 5 or 6 of them). No issues navigating my 32' coach through the roads. There were a number of spots that could have easily fit our rig (although a few would have been too tight). The site was level with good power and water. Camp was pretty well maintained and very full. Campers were polite and friendly and probably about 50% or more of them fulltime or seasonal. The amenities were all closed so can't comment on those. A big HOWEVER, though: the cell service for most providers is practically non-existent. I understand this is not the park's fault and some would say that this is "real" camping -- try telling that to the two millennials that were staying with us. I would definitely return except for that.

    It’s a pick your own site place. Some sites are a bit narrow for the pull- thru. Pool and shuffleboard are really the only activities. No basketball courts at south. My stay was free. Paid WiFi (5 bucks/day) and paid cable tv(4 bucks per day. Very quite here

Being here in early April it was especially quiet and being our first stay can't speak to how this might be in the middle of July. We'll definitely come here again over the summer. Sites are well kept and fairly clean, again it's early in the season so this may be even better in the coming months. The only issue we had was that the sewer connection was buried and we had to clear a lot of dirt to get to the screw-on top. Other than that, no issue with the site. Verizon wireless service was incredibly slow. Although, the speed was considerably better on my LTE equipped iPad mini as opposed to an iPhone XR. Streaming movies via the iPad directly or using the hotspot feature was ok. I didn't ask if WiFi was available and didn't see anything about WiFi availability on any of the paperwork we received at check-in (Perhaps I missed it?), however, having just checked the Thousand Trails listing WiFi is available for a fee ($4 p/day). We'll try the WiFi next time. All in all, a good stay and we look forward to going back.More

It is an average Thousand Trails campground. We stayed 3 nights. Quiet campground in the off season. This is one of the few campgrounds in the area that stay opened all year long. We are here in the late fall and everything is covered with leaves so it is hard to tell if the grounds are well maintained. It looked clean. Hook ups were easy to find and located in one spot. Sewer was level with the ground which is good for us, some of the pipes can be a little high. Water seemed good. We cooked with it and brushed our teeth. I showered once in the comfort station. It was ok. The place could have used a cleaning but it was passable. The building was heated which was nice and the water was hot with good pressure.Many places don't do that. When checking in we were able to go through the campsite and pick our spot, first time for that process. Many of the spots looked level. We had to use three of the 1" leveling blocks to be level. It was fine.Verizon is two bars on cell phone and 2mg download speeds for lte. When making calls I was dropped multiple times. They charge for Internet, $4 per day (FastWave) and for cable $3 per day. Didn't use either service. The campground is about an hour off the highway and the roads into the campground are a little wavy and small. Could be an issue for larger 5th wheels and Class A, but people were there with the larger rigs so it is doable. There are no large box stores near by IE Walmart, Target. So you might want to prepare before you head in. There are smaller local grocery stories which we found just fine. They are 20 - 30 mins away.Pub570 is about 15 mins away if you want a good beer selection and a place to watch a game. People were friendly. Looked frequented by locals. We stopped twice and enjoyed both mealsArea is surrounded by hiking, biking, hunting, fishing. The Delaware Gap Water Recreation Area. I recommend Dingman Falls hike, two good waterfalls. Bushkill Falls is a paid entry to hike and see the waterfall so we passed.We would stay again.
