Majorly improved!!

This campground had been let go with poor management for many years, HOWEVER the new management and staff have really turned it around!! The grounds are beautiful and free of trash, the cabins are beautiful and clean, bathrooms are amazing for a campground, staff is very friendly and they truly go above and beyond. I can’t wait to see what else they improve in the years to come!!

Fall foliage

We came in at end of season, so pretty much everything seems closed. But, it’s a beautiful campground and the part of PA is great too.

Great as long as you behave

Having been here on a few occasions I will say it is def a beautiful spot in many regards. However, there are some downsides.

Positives: sites are decent sized with fire pits and picnic tables. easy access to hiking, convenient to a beautiful vineyard, peaceful region, and the most amazing wolf preserve is right next to you.  

Negative: limited access to firewood. sites are picked clean, quiet hours are strongly enforced- which can be a good thing depending upon who you are, the lake is anything but refreshing.

Beautiful facilities, rocky sites

Pros: -beautiful new bathrooms -private lakeside walk-in sites -beavers! Far away but exciting nonetheless -the Conservation Walk on the island is short, easy, and beautiful. Well-marked.

Cons: -chunky bluestone gravel on the sites, so bring a sleeping pad! -has a beach but it's not much to look at -sites have nice sizable fire pits, but they are very tall. It's difficult to cook over them, and sitting around the campfire in the evening is a much less visually appealing experience than I'd like

We stayed in site 157. Accessible via a path from the designated parking space to the site about 2 minute walk. Lakeside, but visibility not great due to vegetation. All sites have little trails down to the water.

Site 174 by the road and less private, but prettily overhung by evergreens.

The cabins look very nice inside.

Awesome campground

Really nice campground. Staff was friendly and helpful. It’s very secluded, no highway noise. Our spot backed up right to a creek and it was beautiful. Only giving 4 stars because the toilets had problems and the dump station didn’t have running water. Would definitely return regardless.

Words can't describe

This is honestly the best campground we have ever been to!! We loved it so much we went back again the next week even though it's two hours away. Such wonderful rustic sites that are absolutely secluded!! Love it and just wish it was open all year round!

Beautiful hiking

No hook ups and bathrooms can get dirty. Sites are fairly private. Lake is great for kayaks and the falls hiking trail is amazing.

Great state park

Bring your bikes and kayaks. Camped here numerous times. Some sites full hook up, and some more private than others. Nice bike loop around lake, many hiking trails, beach to swim and watch sunset. Does get crowded because it is popular. Lower lake campground is less crowded but sites close together and not as nice a view.

Certain sites are king

Camp Taylor has a lot going for it! Nice facilities at the entrance, large fields for star gazing, and some sites are pretty spacious. Tall tress do provide some privacy but these sites are pretty close together. You will feel like you’re camping with neighbors. (Some season-long sites looked like they lived there!) Site 49 looked to be the most private, up on the hilltop. Definitely book the wolf tour—and walk there instead of taking the shuttle! Beware: their firewood did not burn well. We burned through at least 7 bundles and couldn’t ever make a warm fire. Come with some starter logs!

Clean and friendly campground

We have stayed at Montrose Campground 3 separate time in the past 3 years and they have all been great experiences!  The owners at the campground have been great and very helpful.  We have came into the campground twice late at night and in the dark.  The people at the campground lead us to our space and assisted us backing into the site the first try.  They have recently just built a new bathhouse/laundry building which is very nice.  They also have added more campsites (power/water) and are adding more.  It has been a great campground for us when we are visiting the Montrose PA area!
