Wooded and Spacious

Our first time here, June 2019! We had 7 people and shared 2 sites. The sites in the south loop are very generous and full shade. The people limit per sit is 6, but you can probably fit 8 per site in tents. We had site 381 which was lake view!!! Its steep to the water but there was a view and a great breeze. I docked it one star for the massive amount of gnats and fish flies, they were everywhere. Luckily the mosquitos weren't bad. The sites by the water were the smallest and massive in the back. Working bathrooms and showers, although covered in flies, but they had cleaners in there every morning to wipe them off every surface, they just keep coming back. 

The lake is a good size and a great swimming hole. I saw a ton of fisherman on the lake in the mornings. Each site has a big fire ring with about a 4 inches concrete wall around it and a picnic table. The sites were perfectly flat and had a great sandy/dirt ground which was perfect for our tents and the campers didnt seem to have any problems. Some sites do have pads for campers.

Huge Campground

this area is so beautiful. a ton to explore and a huge frisbee golf course. the inner loops have nice bathrooms. we were in the outer loop far from the rest of the campground and they only had ports potties and hand sanitizer. I wish we had been on the inner loop for the bathrooms, but we had a huge tent site that fit 4 tents on it. Hike to the waterfall, it is beautiful.

Group Campsites!

Cranberry Run is a private campground run by a small family. The campground is in the woods and offers a variety of site sizes and options. They have tent and RV sites. some with and some without water and electric. They also had a few hike-in sites that sat on a cute pond in the front of the campground. We had a group of 10 people and they were able to put us all on the same site. looks like they have permanently merged sites 81 and 82. They also have larger group sites (up to 50 people) available but i don't think it has W/E. All the sites we saw were nice and level and all shaded. there was a bathroom (one mens stall and one womens stall) just across the road from our site and it was very clean and well kept. There may have been capacity issues if the campground was full, but it was half empty because camping season is coming to a close. It was perfect for the 3 sites that shared it while we were there. The shower house is quite a hike from the end of the grounds we stayed on, but honestly I can't comment on the quality because I didn't shower the whole weekend (NO SHAME).

PRO's: Dog Friendly (we had 2 dogs and there was no charge), firewood and ice available, small store with essentials, pay per person with no limit to # people, quiet, shaded, close to DeWG

Con's: small bathroom near our site, separate shower house (far away), no attractions on site (there was a small playground), gravel ground with all W/E sites

The Delaware Water Gap is about a 15min drive from the campground and a beautiful place to hike. We hiked the Red Dot trail on Mt. Tammany and it was breathtaking to see in the fall. Some of the larger hikes are 30min to hour drive north to the heart of the DeWG, but the red dot was plenty for us.

I absolutely LOVED having everyone on the same site instead of having the divisions that come with getting multiple sites for a group. I would highly recommend this place for groups.

Not a campground, but beautiful park

Fort Washington State Park is just north of Philadelphia. It's almost 500 acres filled with trails, woods,and river. I usually go to the parking right off of Militia hill rd.and Skippack Pike intersection. It's an easy walk to the river trail and dogs are allowed everywhere.

Right on the Delaware River

There isn't a campground at this location, but the park is nice. It's right on the Delaware river in Stockton, NJ. They have a nice boat launch and some good fishing spots but the park itself is small if you wanted to make a weekend out of it. I took one star away because the bathrooms were out of toilet paper, but otherwise a good place for a day trip or picnic.

There is actually and island because there is a small waterway that breaks off of the river and then back into the river.

Amazing Campground

I LOVED this campground, it is a private campground owned by a family. They own a large portion of the lakefront and have both a people beach and a dog beach so the dogs can enjoy swimming as well. The lake isn't huge, but it was big enough to have fun kayaking and paddle boarding for the day. They had rentals right on site at the campground and a great camp store in case you forgot anything. The campsite was huge, we fit 2 tents (6 and 8 person) and there was still plenty of room and we had a great view of the lake. Our site had electricity and water. we had friends who stayed on the other side of the lake (still keen property) that did not have electricity/water, but they managed. The bathrooms are nicer on the main campground side, so I would suggest that, but both sections were nice. you had to pay for shower time, but it was affordable (I think 25 cents for 5 minutes).

They have some rental cabins/houses that look really nice (we didn't go in any of them) and there was also an activity field with a sand volleyball pit/softball diamond/tether ball/ soccer field etc. they also have a barn where they hosted some events for the kids. It is a huge campground with plenty of things to do. I highly recommend it.

First to Review
Sand Dunes are amazing

I have been to the Silver Lake State Park campground several times. I absolutely love it and go back as often as possible. The campground is standard bathrooms and campsites, but what really makes it is that it's right on the water and you have a great view of the dunes! You are a mile or so from the dunes entrance and a mile or so the other way from the lake Michigan beach.

Rent or bring a boat and beach it right up to the dunes where sand runs into Silver Lake on one side and runs into Lake Michigan on the other side. I am amazed every time I go.

Very Small Sites, close together.

Hershey Park is AMAZING, I'm 26 and I loved every minute of it.

The campsite wasn't that great. It had the essentials like a fire ring and a picnic table, but the "tent pad" was large gravel surrounded by over grown grass. The bathrooms were very nice (best ive ever camped with and the saving grace of this review). They also had a large camp store and affordable wood and ice. BUY YOUR PARK TICKETS AT THE CAMPGROUND, there is a discount and also a free shuttle to and from all the Hershey locations.

We were so close to the neighbors that we could understand each others conversations, but we only had that problem at night around the fire.

Nice Wooded Sites and Beautiful Lake

I stayed here for 2 nights in July 2017. The site we originally picked was advertised as "partially shaded" but when we got there we found one small tree per site in a grass field. But on the way in we noticed there are lots of wooded sites, and asked to move. The "full shade" sites were amazing. Large, fire ring with grate, and nice picnic table. We fit all 4 tents on the site (mine was a little slanted though).

The park has trails to the lake that were a nice walk. We drove to the public boat launch and rented a pontoon to take on the water. It was blue skies and 85 degrees out and the water felt great. We didn't actually get to swim because there were signs everywhere saying no swimming, but we dipped our legs in. The lake is large and fun to explore in the boat.

Bathrooms were nice. the loop C bathrooms had 3 toilet stalls and 2 shower stalls (that was the womens side, not sure what the mens side had). We had 2 dogs and both neighboring sites had dogs as well. The sites were spread out enough that we were able to keep them contained.

I somehow didn't take pictures of the site, but I have pictures of the lake!
