Nice enough field camping

The sites in the 40s and over and on a big field, so that was slightly disappointing. 64 & 65 were prime sites located not too close, but not to far from the washing area, showers and bathrooms and directly across from playground. Hot showers and flush toilets that were kept relatively clean over the long Memorial Day Weekend.

There is no camp store, but camp office sells firewood for $7 a cord if you catch them when they are open. Turkey Hill in East Stroudsburg has wood if you miss them.

We had a bear in the trees above the campground on our last day but overall uneventful with the local fauna.

Turtle Beach is a huge bust and not worth the extra fee; it is worth the drive to another swimming area.

Van Campens Glen was a nice little hike, as was Buttermilk Falls.

We stayed here in a Tent.

Great views and relatively secluded

Having camped at another campground on the other side of the river last year, I was very pleasantly surprised with this campground. It was clean, quiet and secluded. The sites, however, are relatively small. We had a group of 6 and it was difficult to find room for 3 tents and 3 cars. But since it's half the price of the campground across the river, I think next year we'll just get two sites!

The office was closed all weekend, but a park ranger did come by presumably to check that we had registered. The bathhouses were nice (and heated!). The tent-only area was closed for the season, but I wouldn't have wanted to camp there anyway - they had a view of a golf course, whereas we had a nice untainted view of an island where we saw a deer hanging out. There was plenty of wood to scrounge for the campfire, but I did not see any place to purchase it. Also, very minimal light pollution which was nice. A bit of traffic noise from I-80 though.

Mt. Tattany is nearby and was a nice hike, though VERY crowded. There are a few trails accessible from the campground, though, which we didn't have time to check out. If you've only ever been to the PA side of the Delaware Water Gap, the seclusion and quite on the NJ side will be a nice surprise. We drove through the Gap for quite a while and hardly saw a soul.

We stayed here in a Tent.

Awesome Park right on the Delaware

I've stayed here twice so far in the off season. They have both pit toilets (composting) and modern toilets and showers. The showers are a little nasty, but if you are that dirty you can use them, otherwise ... that's what they make baby wipes for. The hiking in the park is great with several miles of the AT, among other hikes. I've only stayed at site 77, it's not right on the river, but very close. It's on the outside of the big field loop. I would not want to stay in the field. Sites 1-23 are all tent only sites. You can bring a camper, but there are no hook-ups. I think generators are allowed (I don't use one) but last time I was there someone was using one.
