This was the first campground I ever stayed at. I’d had a bad car accident and was determined to hike Mt Phelps. The campground had plenty of privacy and was clean. Nothing too crazy but close to the good hiking spots.
Tyler is great for everything from walking to horseback riding. The park is beautiful and there is even a hostel where you can stay. We run, bike, and rollerblade there as a family. The park is quite large so if you want a quieter area you can find it. You can also fish there. I’ve run a half marathon in the park which was challenging and beautiful. Make sure to visit the covered bridge.
Washington’s crossing is beautiful and historic. We often bike along the canal there. There are farms and animals to see, hikes along the Delaware river, Bowman’s tower with a great view of the surrounding area and much more.
Letchworth has a few options: cabin, barebones cabin, and a few tent sites. I’ve stayed several times. We’ve hiked, white water rafted, gone to the pool, playgrounds, etc. The park is huge and absolutely gorgeous. You can easily spend a week here and have plenty to do in the park as well as the local towns. You can tour the dam as well. The views along the road through the park are incredible. Go to Letchworth. You will love it.
I love Neshaminy State Park but I’m not sure why it’s listed here as a campground. You can’t camp here. Visits - for sure!
I used to run here everyday. There is a pool which is incredibly popular in the summer. Paved and unpaved trails. Access to the Delaware river. Pet friendly, picnic friendly, open space to play games. They also have a civil war re-enactment here every year
Ugh I love this place and miss this place. Not a campground!
This is one campground I’d definitely go back too. We are tent campers but there are a lot of RVs and options for a couple of cute cabins as well. It rained the entire time I was there so we didn’t go in the pool but the campground is walkable, I was able to go running, there are things for kids to do, some animals to go visit on our walks, obviously a lake, and it’s close to stuff in Lancaster area. The campground is clean, a little noisy, but still has the secluded feel I want when camping.
We really enjoyed this campground. We booked late and ended up being given the group camping site because it was all that was left. We had a ton of space and it was more secluded than other sites. There were activities for the kids, a playground, access to some nice walks. Overall, family friendly. The campground as a whole was walkable which is nice. I’d definitely go back here.
The pros: friendly staff, clean, nice pool (crowded though), close to AT, basketball net, cute playgrounds, Gaga ball court, swings for babies, laundry on site.
The cons: sites were SO close together that you get no peace which is why I want to camp, too bright at night, noisy (again too close), don’t take credit card (I don’t care about this but other people may).
With the sites so close together, I never got that feel of being in nature. The people near us (5 families on vacation together) screamed all day and night and shined lights into our tent. Had we more space, maybe that wouldn’t have been so annoying. The campground was mostly RVs.
site 11 was ours. Close to the front office, pool, bathrooms.
