My Scout troop has travelled here twice from NJ on the way to Girl Scout Jamboree. We love it here! Great staff, well maintained camping area, lots of amenities, clean facilities (showers with lots of hot water). In the woods, but near enough to civilization (pizza). We will definitely stay here again!
We stayed over the Fourth Holiday for our first time at this campground. I can’t say enough wonderful things about this place. Our site was spacious and shaded. We had just electric hookup for our tent. Park was well kept and clean. Shower houses were well maintained daily throughout the week, however not on weekends when it tends to be most crowded. Shower houses had been recently updated which was nice for a state park. I’ve been to others that were outdated but still clean. They picked up trash daily from the cans that had screw-on lids. Nice outdoor and indooor pools right down the road in the park. Beautiful views. Lots of places to bike ride for my family of young kids (4 & 8). They also had a nicely updated park for the kids to play. My only complaint is that the camp store did not keep their ice cream stocked. When we asked for two days, we were told someone is at the store now or someone will go this evening. We plan to make this our annual Fourth camping spot from now on!

This is the second time I am reviewing this State Park campground. You can see my review from last year on my ranger page. Pipestem is chock full of plenty of activities to keep your family busy. You can trout fish at the bottom of the mountain from the main lodge accessible by a four person tram ride. There is a couple nice restaurants on site and off site. Horseback riding, hiking, boating, a fire tower you can climb, and an outdoor movie theater on the wknds a few miles from pipstem. You can find out what is showing for each wknd on the (Pipestem drive-in) FB page on every Tuesday. there is a very big swimming pool with a wonderful golf course situated right beside of the pool. The campground itself has over a hundred camping spots. half with full hook ups for campers, and the other half for tent camping. Each site is spacious enough to not be right up against another campsite. There is fire pits and picnic tables at each site. You can get a camping site with electric which is very convenient when camping for several days. They have shower facilities and a laundry room. There is also a place to empty your camper refuse. all in all this campsite isn't one that is rugged and can be very busy at times, but it is a good one for a families with kids. I try to go once a year with my wife and kids because there is just so much to do.
the Pipestem campground has both rustic and electric/water sites for tent camping. There is plenty to do within walking distance or a short drive. There is hiking all around the Pipestem area. There is a lake to fish and boat on. The Bolar lookout tower that is accessible to the general public on a big hill. a short drive away is the Pipsetem drive-in outdoor theater. This campground and surrounding state park is family friendly. there is an olympic size pool, for swimming, as well there is a tram that takes you down to the canyon rim to explore a local river.
