Located on the Delaware River about half way between Rt. 84 and Rt 80. This is a nice campground for those who like to explore the area. there is a gravel bike trail that covers many miles inside the Deleware water gap national park, the trail crosses the campground entrance and our site backed right up to the trail. the campground also has it's own boat ramp, though it was rough and only good for hand launching canoes and kayaks. (the fall before was when the big hurricane went through NY and VT, the Deleware was also severly flooded and the campground, boat ramps and even rt 209 were all damaged, in the years since I expect things have been improved) The campsites had full hookups, the sites seemed to be in groups of four or five, with woods separating each group, but not much more than some bare tall trees between sites. the bathrooms were not far away and showers were free. there are some riverfront sites, but these are mostly for tents as they had no driveway to pull a camper into, even our teardrop would have only made it onto a few of these sites. there was some equipment for kids, but most of the athletic fields etc. looked kind of unused, this may have just been a bad time after the flood. Many of the boat ramps on the Delaware river charge for parking and boat launching, but the campground and the next launch area downstream are free (Eshbeck, roughly 6 miles) we parked the car at Eshbeck, rode our bikes back to the campground, then kayaked down to Eshbeck. the river is great, some class one rapids, mixed with stretches of flat water good for swimming and snorkeling. There is a shuttle service in the park for bike riders and kayakers to get back to where they started to retrieve the car, and plenty of rental companies that drop you off and pick you up at different boat landings. In between the river is mostly wild on the banks, and the bike path is mostly bordered by farm fields and woods. The Deleware river is in a deep valley next to the Pocono Mountains, at many points along rt 209 you can walk or hike into areas with waterfalls, where streams drop off the edge of the mountain plain into the valley. Just across from the campground is a great waterfall, Dingman's falls, there is a visitor center and boardwalk to get to it, at the time the visitor center was closed as the driveway to it had washed out in spots. visitors had to walk up from Rt. 209. It should be open now. South of here there is Bushkill Falls, a small canyon with boardwalks and waterfalls that you pay to visit, worth the trip! The campground has a nice store, and the staff were helpful, hopefully the place is nicer now that the area has recovered from the floods almost four years ago. I do know rt 209 has been rebuilt. Another local point of interest, Dingmans bridge, a private toll bridge that crosses between PA and NJ, the toll is a dollar or two dropped into a bucket, the toll collectors stand in the road on the PA side. the bridge is only for cars and light trucks. - Review provided by RV Park Recommendations & Reviews Facebook Group
