We own some property near this campground and have stayed here a few weekends as a home base while we clean up our property. The owners are just amazingly nice people, always very helpful! The campground itself is beautiful, it’s back a long lane from the main road so it is quiet and peaceful. Night time is especially beautiful, you can see tons of stars on a clear night. Everyone there, owners, employees, and campers alike are pleasant. The store is well stocked, and firewood is available 24/7. There is a small pool that we haven’t used yet, but it looks nice and well kept. The sites are a bit larger than average and are pretty level, but make sure to bring leveling blocks. The sites themselves are well kept and have a big fire pit and picnic table. I would suggest getting there while it is still light out, there is plenty of room on the roads to get your rig around the campground, but there are lots of trees and it gets a little hard sometimes to see where the road is vs a site. The store is well stocked with supplies, t shirts, and some RV necessities. Propane is also available as well. I don’t believe most sites have a sewer connection, and there is only one dump station, but the owner John was going around pumping people out Sunday morning when the line to the dump station was long. We were there in October, and the weekend they went they had a really cool walk through “haunted woods” that was a lot of fun. When we were there last weekend John was telling us about other events they are planning to do as well.
Pioneer Campground is truly a hidden gem, and I am looking forward to my next trip there!
TLDR: I would go back to this park in a heartbeat!
So I just got him from Promised Land State Park and it couldn’t have been a more relaxing weekend. We stayed at Pickerel Point in one of the loops.
Pros: Beautiful scenery, nice bath houses, big sites, easy access to the lake and pickerel point beach. Small town about 5-10 mins away where you can get the very basics, and another larger town with a grocery store, liquor store, and hardware store about 20 minutes away
Cons: dump station is a little tricky to get into or out of with a longer rig, sites can be pretty far out of level so bring lots of leveling blocks. It took 30 lego levelers for us to get level.
