This was my first time at Mongaup Pond and we loved it. The place was all booked and we got lucky with a cancellation at a premium site on the lake. It is such a beautiful place and so nicely done. The sites are not on top of each other and mostly separated with some kind of brush or bushes. Lots of places to hike and play. It’s was Late September so it was a little to cold to use the lake, but it didn’t matter, we had a great time. Can’t wait to go bback on the Spring.
I had a great time on a one night stay here at site 36. Very private and right on the pond. You can see a picture here of the water just a 10 foot trail away from our campsite. All in all a great trip. If you’re bringing a dog be sure to have your rabies vaccine info available as they will check. The listing here advertises cell service, however there is no cell service as soon as you turn into the park. I didn’t even find an area where I could temporarily send and receive messages, which would be fine except that I left a pregnant wife at home. Any of the sites along the water would be really nice and all sites are fairly private. The site next to mine (37) is possibly the most private of the pond side sites. The only people who would go past your site are the folks walking to the walk-in only sites. Definitely recommend the area if you’re looking for some privacy but not worried about not seeing another soul during your stay.
Nice place. Only ever been during mid week and the place is empty which is nice. The general store isn’t always open which can get annoying at times. Bathrooms are clean, campground could use a little more attention to cleanliness but overall not bad. Great access to the beaverkill. It’s perfect for a quick getaway.
Just returned from our 5th stay at Mongaup Pond Campground. We love this place and are already looking forward to the next trip. This is a simple spot with very little amenities. They sell wood (except this season due to Covid), rent boats/kayaks and that’s about it. One small beach. Very chill and quiet. No groups or loud campers. It’s all about the outdoors and the beautiful lake. 50/50 tent/RV No cell or WIfi within 25 minutes. Bathrooms throughout the camp are satisfactory, nothing to rave about but are kept clean. One big shower spot that is pretty good with nice hot water. Dogs allowed, must show rabies paperwork.
Staff and fellow campers are always super friendly. Great spot to disconnect and enjoy the outdoors.
I did a 2 night tent camping trip during the week. The check in process was simple and quick, the rangers working were super friendly and helpful. The site I was on backed up to the water. It was beautiful and so easy to launch the kayak right from my site. It was also pretty spacious but it would’ve been a little tight with a second car. (I had a 4 person tent and one car) It was so nice to wake up and watch the eagles flying over the water each morning. The restrooms were close but weren’t distracting with super bright lights or lots of noise. There are a few trailheads that start within the campground. Overall a really easy, quick getaway for a few days. It’s very family friendly. I would definitely go back and recommend it to anyone looking to go camping in the area. There are a few trailheads that start within the campground. One thing to note is that there is zero service in the park, so screenshot or print whatever directions you need and make sure you bring a map as well.
Hard to give an accurate review for normal times, but TallPines works hard to keep it fun even in a pandemic. Great for kids, kinda close to busy roads but close to convenient shopping and local activities when they open back up.
For a two night trip, I was really impressed with how relaxing it was - and we had enough to do to make it active. You can kayak and swim in the lake, and see incredible stars at night. Would recommend bringing your bikes. Great that the campground is just far enough from the lake/park, which makes it a bit more private. Covid note: you cannot rent boats at this time, but you can still buy firewood, ice, etc.
