Little Red Barn is really nice. Upper Bucks County can be pretty busy so being out of the way is a good thing with this location. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The sites are roomy and not challenging to get into. There is plenty of open area for family fun and the store and pool are really great. There are a couple of local restaurants that have great food and great service. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Chose Little Red Barn because it was on Good Sam list from past years. They've dropped their membership so not on current list. Small, tight roads and turns to get in to transient section of campgrounds. Seasonably are all in the front middle and look like they were allowed to take whatever site they wanted and shape it to their liking years ago. We chose a pull through and once we made it in, felt it OK. Fortunately we were the only one in the pull through area or else our slide and awning might have touched a neighbor's slide and awning. Sewer dump is in front of office/store and you actually have to drive off their property back on to town road to pull back in to dump - then pull back out when you go to leave. Not exactly super service in my book. Lots of tent sites, but lots of black flies, mosquito's and ticks. Had rained the day before we arrived in mid-April and a lot of sites still had standing water in them. They were just installing Wi-Fi around the campground when we were there. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We paid for two nights, but we left after one. The "Pull Thru" had too sharp a turn so we had to back in. Since this campground was in the middle of nowhere, it is easy to get lost and the roads in the area are very winding and narrow. We had to call the campground for directions and they couldn't tell us how to get there when we were actually only 10 miles away. The man at the office acted like he didn't want to be there at all. Our spot was very isolated and pitch dark. Thankfully we got satellite reception. There are many long term and storage spots which makes it an eyesore. Skip this one. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Served its purpose of being near the Allentown area. If full, the sites are very tight but fortunately, we were the only RV there. Nice swimming pool. Miniature golf course available. Grounds of the mobile home park are very nice. Campsite is just a gravel driveway. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a lovely, wooded setting. The sites are a little close and very gritty. This campground seems like a great place for kids. For that reason the staff needs to do a better job of controlling traffic and speed. Surcharge for Wi-Fi is not acceptable at this price level. The location is convenient to shopping and restaurants. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We spent two nights here on our way through to New Jersey. We had expected to stay further west but there was a huge power outage, so we called this place and, though their office was closed, they were nice enough to give us a site number over the phone and asked us to check in and pay in the morning. The campground is old, filled with mature trees and many seasonal sites. The sites are not well defined even though they are numbered. The people we met were friendly. The cable worked perfectly and there was a good WiFi signal strength, though I did not pay the $5 use fee as there is an excellent 3G Verizon signal and I was able to use my smartphone. This is the kind of campground we used to visit with our children, where they played all day in the pool and everyone sits around the campfire at night. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We loved it here. My wife and I have recently gotten a seasonal sight here. We stayed here last year and just had to come back. The people here are friendly and the staff very helpful. Plenty of shade and pet friendly. The restrooms are very clean. Over all a very relaxing place to come and have fun. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I had to pay extra for my in-laws to come visit us for just a few hours. The firewood bundles you can purchase at the campground store are pine wood, so they burn really quickly. The TV service was very fuzzy. There is barely any grass in this campground. Our site (and all the others around it) was completely gravel and dirt. The campground is pet friendly, which was nice for our dog, but they don't adhere to the excessive barking rule. There are permanent sites throughout the campground, but many of them looked like an eyesore. One had a dumpster behind it, another had a toilet in the front yard? My husband braved the restrooms, but came back and said that they were disgusting. During our two night, three day stay - we never once saw anyone cleaning the restrooms (our site was right next to the restrooms). The other thing that was rather disappointing was the dumpster was located right at the entrance of the campground. My family and I booked this because it claimed to be a family campground, and the reviews looked outstanding. I was very disappointed, as we paid quite a lot to stay there, and then it turned out to be a place that we felt uncomfortable. I'm not sure if Quakerwoods Campground was recently sold to someone different, but it certainly does not look like the pictures posted on the website. The only good thing I can say about this campground is there was full hookup offered, and we fully took advantage of it. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This place just plan stinks. The electricity is strung through the trees! Water pressure is very low, if any during a busy weekend. In my opinion, this campground should be closed down. I believe it is unsafe. I have pictures to prove it. I stayed for the season. Never again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The park was just okay. Wiring and plumbing do not appear to have been professionally installed or maintained. The grounds could use some raking and litter removal. Laundry facilities are in serious need of repair and update. The dryer I used vented directly into the laundry room, which quickly turned the place into a steam room and did not dry my clothes fully. When I told management about this, they did not offer to let me use another machine for free, which I found to be poor customer service. Bathrooms were shabby but clean. We were here during the off season so it was pretty quiet except for Saturday night when music and party sounds could be heard well after midnight (they do not enforce quiet hours that I could tell). We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here before in April and wrote a positive review. We got a seasonal slip and now as we approach the end of the season, we thought we would re-evaluate. We have registered for next year, as we love it here. There isn't anything bad to say except that it needs updating and they are in the process of doing so. After reading some of the negative reviews, I find their comments very nit picking. Site # 1 isn't an eye sore. The lady spends hours on her site. The trash bins can't be located anywhere else, unless you want it next to your campsite. As we stated before if you want the Ritz go to a camp resort. But if you are looking to camp for the weekend come here. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The campground is in dense woods. The road winds between trees. It was very hard to navigate with our rig. We got a pull-thru with all the amenities. The electrical was pretty scary - the post was wobbly and full of cobwebs and bugs. This seems to be mostly seasonal sites - many in disrepair with all kinds of junk piled around them. The place whole place was uncomfortable to us. The manager offered WIFI for an extra $10 but ad says it was free. I discovered I had access with no password or anything without paying. Scam??? The laundry room was surprisingly clean and washers and dryers worked well. We met some nice folks, though. The camp ground office smelly and dirty. We won't return. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I read some of the reviews after we booked this campground and thought we were in for a nightmare and found just the opposite. The pool was not dirty nor were the bathrooms and showers, I didn't use them; I used my motorhome but had to check them out. They did need some serious upgrading, very old looking but clean. As for the sites, one camper commented that there was no grass. Its the woods! Our site was very large and not up against the next camper. Some sites could be tight getting in to for very large rigs because of all the trees but we had no problem with a 36 foot. All the trees provided an awesome canopy against the heat and removing more I think would ruin the woods camping. The road and our site was stoned. Saturday night they had a 50s sock hop and DJ at the pool. The pool was filled with balloons for the kids. Also had cheese steaks for purchase and everyone brought snacks. I would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
First impressions are lasting impressions, normally. As I approached the campground, I was impressed with the well-manicured lawn around a small pond and the freshly painted sign. And then I turned into the driveway and saw the two 40 foot long dumpsters piled to overflowing. The first campsite that comes into view had so much accumulated "treasure" that they would have to hire a 40 foot semi trailer if they ever had to move. This park was mostly long-term parking. I asked for a 50A site and was assigned a 30A site. The roads are mostly dirt and not well marked. At times I wondered if I was still on the road, or going through a pull-through space. Trees could be a challenge for a big rig, but I managed to avoid knocking anything down with my 38 foot fiver. Bathrooms needed attention in the worst way. Electric lines are attached to the trees rather than poles, but power was stable. Cable TV signal was less than perfect. I had good Verizon data and phone signals. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Our family had just purchased our camper and this was our first trip in it camping. The site where we were located was nice and the fellow campers were VERY nice. The bathrooms and showers were worst then anything I've ever seen. The same dirty trash from the first day was sill there but overflowing when we left. The pool was not taking care of very well and didn't feel inviting. Considering the fact that it was in the high 90's they could have spared a couple of chairs and tables for the campers. Again, the bath houses were GROSS! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A heavily wooded and flat campground conveniently located between Allentown and Bethlehem. Plenty of shade. About half the park occupied by permanent sites, but most were in good shape. Solid and free Wi-Fi signal throughout the property. Unguarded pool way too small - couldn't be bigger than 40X20 - with temps in the 90s, it was overwhelmed with people and not clean. My son found a dental floss pick and mud (I hope it was mud) at the bottom after only 10 minutes. That ended our pool excursion. $49/night too expensive for what we got. Not sure if we'll be back. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I have never disagreed so strongly with recent reviews of a park. Nines? Are you kidding me?? This place was awful! Ninety percent of the rigs in here are permanent and absolutely filthy. Looks like most people leave them here and come for the weekend. The electric and cable wires are nailed to and strung through the trees. It's like a giant, jury-rigged maze of wires up there. I've never seen anything so tacky. Yes, all the trees provide a lot of shade, but so much so that there is no grass anywhere, just dirt and gravel. And mud. We have a 35' fifth wheel and had a terrible time maneuvering around the trees to get to and into our spot. Many trees are right next to the road. Lots of roots above the ground which made leveling fun. Weekends are loud as several people blast their stereos outside all day long. This is a large campground but only 3 washers and 3 dryers, one dryer was broken. Washers were expensive at $1.75 per load, dryers are $1.25. I hated it and will never return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here for weekend a couple of years ago, I rated it then and said we would not return. Well we did decide to try this campground one more time and glad we did. One main concern last time we camped here was the electric which has been upgraded and no longer an issue. This campground is well shaded with lots of trees. Some of the older seasonal sites that were so run down last time we were here have been removed. Most are well kept, but as always in most campgrounds, there are a few that need general clean up. The pool was nice. We did not use the laundry or bathroom facilities although I did walk through the ladies room adjacent to the office and it was clean with no obvious problems. They do not have trash pick up at your site so depending on where your site is located you may have to walk a distance to the dumpster. Overall our stay here was quite pleasant and we will stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We liked the sites we have had. They are big and shaded. There are sites for all kinds of campers. The cable TV is included in the price, which is nice. Wi-Fi is available for a fee. They have had some problems with the Wi-Fi, but have been working hard on it and it is improving. The staff is friendly and they don't smother you with their presence like other campgrounds we have been in. The staff is constantly working to improve the campground. The pool is clean and always occupied by people. The bath houses are old but clean. The pond is a nice extra from other campgrounds. The activities are good as they are geared not only for children, but some activities are for the adults as well. One thing they have that we haven't seen in other campgrounds is security people who live on the grounds. They are polite and friendly and ready to help whenever needed. We enjoyed our stay here so much that we became seasonal. If you don't like your stay here then you are looking for a camp resort not a campground. It is remote but just minutes away from shopping. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Freedom has always been the best way to describe the atmosphere at Q'Woods. Should be another great camping season. What a pleasant surprise! We've camped here for the past 4 years. When we arrived to open our camper this season Q'woods was in fine shape. Trees trimmed, leaves removed, electrical upgrades, cable upgrades, old trailers removed and a fresh crop of new faces. Plus activities have been expanded to include a flea market event. I have always enjoyed the larger site size as compared to other local campgrounds. The staff always goes the extra mile to accommodate any special needs that may arise. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

I camped here last summer for a weekend while visiting some family. I loved the abundance of trees (and resulting shade) in the campground, and the fishing was great. I had a very pleasant stay. Upon my return this season, I noticed, and was very impressed, with the improvements made throughout the campground, including cleanliness, general appearance, and modernizing updates. There are plenty of activities for campers including a swimming pool, weekend activities, mini golf course, playground, etc. The bathrooms are kept clean and the free showers have hot water that hasn't run out on me since I've been here. The owners/ operators and seasonal crew are very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this campground to anyone traveling through the area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
My husband and I enjoyed this campground very much because it has spacious lots and are beautiful--lot of trees for shade. The owners were friendly and helpful. It's peaceful and scenic with a pond we fished in. The buildings and bathrooms are older models but kept neat. Easy access to the town and attractions. We definitely plan to come back in the summer. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was the worst campground we ever stayed at. The campground was very run down. The majority of the sites were seasonal and most of the units were dirty and falling apart. It appeared as though most of the seasonal sites were actually where people lived. There was garbage and junk piled all over the seasonal sites. It looked more like a run-down trailer park than a campground. All of the activities were cancelled: my kids had absolutely nothing to do. The playground looked too dangerous to let them go near it. The miniature golf course was also falling apart. The store was very small and had a horrible smell and was very dirty. No one enforced the rules: it was very noisy and the cars were flying past our site, I was afraid to let my kids play or ride their bikes. We had a full hookup site but the septic systems must have been clogged, when we tried to empty our tanks it went all over the ground. We notified the office and they sent someone to fix it, he tried to snake it and flush it which caused the sewer to run all over our site. We arrived around 6:30pm on a Friday night and packed up and left by 12 on Saturday. We will never go back! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This could be a nice campground, but it really shows it's age and lack of maintenance. Worst part was the noise level until 3 am every night. No one policed the quiet hours at all. Will not return. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

OK, I get what everyone is saying but this is a decent park. The potential here is huge! It needs work and not the cleanest place but it is in a great location and near a lot of things to do. We went in a group of motorhomes and while the roads were not the easiest to navigate they were doable. The owners were very nice to our children when they were at the store. Pool and restrooms were dirty but I have a bath in motorhome so it did not affect us so much. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Electrical boxes were overloaded - some made of wood! Spider webs all over boxes. Water had multiple connections on each spigot. Wires all over the trees and may pose a problem for higher motorhomes. This park needs to be fixed - maybe reported to the township for violations. Most of the campers are old, dirty and falling apart. Access to the CG is via very, VERY narrow roads and bridges. We will NEVER return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Every rule written for this campground was broken. Kids running all over, shouting all hours of night, firecrackers, people talking till 2-3 am, loud music long after quiet time, dogs barking. This campground is perfect if you dont like to sleep. Will never return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground has a lot of potential but desperately needs maintenance. We could not back into our site all the way because of low hanging electrical wires. One section of seasonal sites was well maintained, but many others were down right scary. The bathrooms need to be removed and replaced. We will not return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Pros: Shady sites. Friendly staff. Cons: Difficult to maneuver around and into site. Not big rig friendly. Dirty. About 90% of sites are permanent residence. Overall we were not happy with our stay. One night was more than enough. Price paid was 50% due to Camp Club USA. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Not sure why the other reviews were putting this place down. Some of the roads are kind of tight and some of the sites may be tough to get into, but if you take away the trees it would take away some of the beauty. Our site was almost level, very shaded, lots of activities, nice pond and pool. Everyone friendly, including the owners. Who cares where they are from? The store is a bit small. Next time the bikes come along. We will be here again. Pleasant surprise after reading the other reviews. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Sort of OK. Nice place and beautiful. No cable, wi-fi or anything interesting and too far from Philly to commute on a daily basis. The management doesn't do much in the winter, seem to be gone to Florida or something, but on the other hand don't bother you either. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I have to agree with the above review. Very run down. Water hook-up leaking right onto an electrical box. My sewer hook up was a hole with no cap, almost couldn't find it. Stunk real bad too. Cable picture unwatchable with interference. Sights were confusing in most spots. Hard to tell exactly where you should set-up. Had 20+ college kids in tents across from us playing beer pong and blasting music until 1 AM. Camp store smelled horribly. Didn't bother looking in the bathrooms. Playground was in bad shape. Was nervous that the equipment would break. Pool was in OK shape. Be very careful with big rigs. Try not to arrive at night. HOWEVER, with all that said, we camped with 3 other couples and all of our sites backed up to each other so we all were close together and had a cozy central location for food, fire and sitting around. Spent most of the day in nearby Bethlehem. Great restaurants, nice shops, very walkable. Just an old steel town that preserved that old town feel. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We have traveled to many different campgrounds and this campground was one of the worst. We booked the reservation on the brochure that had shown us a very beautiful and active campground. The campground was nothing but a disaster. The swimming pool was turning green, the restrooms and bathhouses were disgusting & dirty (the walls had holes and the sinks were rusted and mildewed with huge dead insects laying around. The picnic tables that are at every site were rotted and broken. The recreation we were promised in our brochure was not fullfilled. The gameroom was only open for 1 hour out of the 1 week we were there. The bingo and las vegas night had been cancelled along with hay rides that were to be happening every morning. We had witnessed children playing on the swings with the swings actually falling apart on them. We also witnessed four campers who set up and then actually got to see what was happening at the grounds and the bathhouses and then packed up and move out. There had been dead branches breaking throughout the days of our stay. These branches were not small. The leaves have not been raked up since last fall. We would not recommend this campground to anyone. The campground is in need of severe repairs. Our family which includes 3 children and 2 adults had a very uncomfortable and unpleasant stay, if it were not for us having our own bathroom and running water we too would have left. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
It's an OK campground. I thought the other reviews were too harsh. Cons: The sites are not level. Took me about an hour to level my unit. Water had a lot of sand in it. It's not drinkable at all. Trees make parking hard sometimes. Very long communite to PHL. Think 1. 5 hours+. The office was hardly ever open during winter hours...low demand I suppose. Pros: Beautiful CG. Lots of trees. Very nice. Nice pond. Very relaxed country setting. Few residents there during winter. It closes for a few weeks in January. Bathrooms were nice and warm during winter. Don't know about cable/phone hookup All in all I give it a "B". We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
They just open so things weren't completely ready. The whole CG is in the shade with some
big trees. Sites are small and the trees make it hard for large rigs to move around. Be very careful. The CG is old. The buildings show it. The bathrooms are clean and some things are new in them but they need to be redone. The play ground needs to be sanded and repainted. They have a lot of seasonal's sites. The wife and I are willing to try them again later in the season. We used a 34' TT. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Pros: Nice, helpful staff. Had trick-or-treating, a Halloween party with games for the kids. Facilities in decent condition. Covered bridge. Stream with geese. Quakertown Farmers Market and Lake Noxamixon with geo-caching near by. Cons: High price of $48 per night due to Halloween weekend. Intermittent, overloaded Wi-Fi. Litter. Sites were tightly packed. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Sites were a little small. Creek was nice for the kids to fish in. We didn't do any of the activities because it rained most of the time. The site didn't really flood at all, we liked that. The price was a special for that weekend. We would stay here again for that price only. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A rather small campground with half of its sites dedicated to seasonals. Could be the only location in Bucks County to offer sewer - a big plus. Contrary to previous reviews, we found most sites too narrow. My slideout extended over to my neighbor's site. Several sites dedicated to tent camping; convenient unless you mind rampant goose poop. Staff was super pleasant, the campground's lush trees kept the air cool throughout the day, and its location is close to Philly, Allentown, and Trenton. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Our rate reflects a special price they offer pretty often, and was for a full hookup site. This campground is a real gem. It is quiet, sites are well laid out and the staff really care. It is a family run operation and it can definitely use a coat of paint in a few places. The shower house is needs some maintenance to get it to a higher quality as well. That said, the creek running through is very peaceful, the open spaces are really well laid out for kids to play and the sites are moderately level (two layers of Legos were needed on the trailer). The store is well stocked, and the pool is very nice. It was still too cool to use but the area was well kept. There are a few group sites and their were a few parties going on and none of them were a problem. If you have dogs, avoid transient space 9, next to a pathway to the upper tier. We were there and had to apologize every time another dog walked by for our youngest pooch. He is not aggressive but a bit noisy. Other spots provide better privacy from other campers. The location is excellent for visiting local tourist sites like Philadelphia to the south and Bethlehem to the north. Shopping is only a few minutes away and an excellent Italian restaurant is just five minutes up the road. The goose population and the resultant, well, poo can be a bother. The area along the creek could be messy but the campsites and play areas were unaffected. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a well maintained, picturesque campground. The permanent sites are removed from the transient ones. There was good space between sites, more than at a KOA. Wi-Fi was spotty at best. OK in the AM or late PM, but almost non-existent during the day. No cable TV hookups, but good off the air reception. Would recommend highly and definitely return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park, family campground. We were in the off season and were able to get a spot right on the river. Was very nice and quiet. Sites had plenty of room, although there were only about six campers besides us. One word of caution. It is on covered bridge road. Depending which way you come in: there is a covered bridge 12' 1". Manager was great and very accommodating. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Quirky campground set in rural PA just near a beautiful covered bridge (clearance 12’-1”). Appears to be several permanent or seasonal campers on the “hill” area of the CG. Many in need of work and a good cleaning. We were on the lower, more level area. Did not need to level at this site. Store and office were closed by 6pm when we arrived. The next day we went to square up and found that even though it was 2 weeks before Halloween, because it was a “holiday” weekend, that we could not get discount as Good Sam members. We did, however, get a discount for Thursday night and Sunday night. We were also told that they held THREE Halloween weekends in October, all considered “holidays”. Apparently campgrounds can call any weekend a “holiday” and not give discounts. We were not happy about that, especially since we didn’t see this info on the website, or on any of the paperwork. Internet reception is not so good. Bathrooms were clean. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nightly rates reflects military discount. I'm note quite sure we actually received the right discount on our entire stay. They offer active duty plus first responder discounts. My calculations would say no we didn't. We camped here for 5 days. The park is an "old" family run park. The bathrooms smelled of mildew something horrible. The showers I don't think were very cleaned the 5 days we stayed, as the drains were full of hair and the walls were full of creepy crawlers. Most sites are some what shaded. There is a gaggle of geese at the park they are near the stream and they defecate everywhere. The park tries to clean it usually at first light. There are a lot of seasonals there who stay in run down trailers, kind of makes the whole park look messy. This is a very wooded area and some sites are very wide and easy to get into and others are not. The Wi-Fi was horrible at best, I don't think I was ever able to connect the whole time we were here. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We were visiting the area for the Lenape Pow Wow at Core Creek Park. The campground was really nice and it was quiet for a weekend. When we arrive we were running late. We set up like usual and then took off for the pow wow. When we came back I realized that we did not have any shore power. So I went out and tried to take a look. The 30 amp and the 50 amp plugs were not working. I tried the 15 amp one and it worked. Good thing I brought my adapters. We got the A/C going to cool off the camper and I went up to the office to report the problem. The campground staff had someone there within 5 mins to look at and fix the problem. They had the 30 amp plug working within 20 mins and had no additional problems the rest of the time. I would like to say that when travelling to the campground you have to make sure that you can either fit under a 12 foot covered bridge or you have to travel the long way around. When taking the long way you have to be mindful of low branches and wires. Other then that we will definitely go back to this campground. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We understand that this campground has just sold. I hope the new owners are as considerate and friendly as the present owners. We had some work done on our truck, and it took longer than expected. They moved us to another site and even then we were down to the wire getting out on a 4th of July weekend Friday. The folks that had the site rented for the weekend were terrific. They waited until 4:30 when the truck was done, and the office had made plans to put them in another site if necessary. Everyone was really great about us being in the site after checkout. The campground is grass and some gravel, all back-ins. FHU were good, and all sites have 50amp. There were activities for the kids on the weekend and a pool. Also activities for the adults. It got a little muddy when we had a thunderstorm, but for the RV's at least not bad. DON’T follow your GPS down Thatcher to Covered Bridge road if your RV is higher than 12ft 1 in. Call if you need to, but the covered bridge will take out vent covers and maybe an air conditioner. I didn’t have that problem but a brand new 5er next to me did. Overall a little pricey but a nice place to park. We were there 12 days. Don’t take site 7 without looking at it first. Rate reflects PA discount not counting weekends. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We camped here with another family. We had a good time. The staff was helpful and friendly. We didn't use the pool, but it looked clean. The sites were a nice size and we didn't feel crowded. Our only minor issue was that our site was mostly dirt. Some of the other full hookup sites had gravel and grass. We'll be requesting one of those the next time out. Seemed like the non-hookup sites were mostly grass. We will be back again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was a nice enough campground; folks that run the campground are friendly and helpful. Much of the campground is seasonal, but the section that supports open camping is right on Tohickan Creek: so bring your fishing pole or just kick back and enjoy the picturesque view! The surrounding area is just as nice with back country roads, a covered bridge, beautiful old stone houses and barns, and a County Park and State Park (with a HUGE lake) just minutes away. The downside? These campsites would not offer much privacy or pretty views if the campground is crowded. We were fortunate that many of the sites around us were not reserved. But my real peeve? The campground did not offer recycling! What's up with that? We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
When we camped here, it looked like they had made many improvements, including a newly renovated pool and restrooms. The restrooms were kept very clean and have free coinless showers. They also have free Wi-Fi at all sites and the staff was very friendly. Very great fishing! The scenic view of this campground is one of the best you will ever see. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

It is a long drive from the main road in to the campground. The road narrows & you see the covered bridge with the restricted height before you see the campground gate just before it bringing stress levels, if you have a tall rig, to the roof before they drop to safe levels again. Free WI-FI. Transients get nicest sites next to or near river. Midweek mid September the place was near empty. $18, PA rate We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
OK, the staff here are very, very friendly. But this is not a place to camp in a tent. They only have about 18 or so tent sites that are way too close to each other. They are dirt sites that do not drain well at all. We had to leave after we could not find a site that did not look like a swamp ! We camped here in a Tent.
We were very pleased with our stay. The employees were very friendly and helpful. The pool was very nice.The bathrooms were updated and clean. The campground was located near many family friendly attractions. We were able to visit The Crayola Factory, Peddler's Village, and Rice's Market. We will be returning in the Fall for Halloween weekend. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I rated this campground a 1 because they did refund our money for our second night. We reserved a site for 2 days due to a family activity in the area. My husband and I took a walk early the first morning and encountered a rude, obnoxious man (employee or owner, not sure who he was). Another camper was attempting to return to his site after getting coffee and could not get the security gate to release. We were trying to help him as he had 3 children and a wife waiting. He rang the buzzer repeatedly for 5 minutes with no answer. Mr. Obnoxious came running out basically accusing us of trying to break in. He said we should use our gate cards. No such cards were offered to us at check-in or anytime else. When we explained that we were paid campers and had no such cards, he crossed his arms, sulked on the bench and said we had to wait until the store opened at 8:00. The young man explained that he meant no disrespect and only wanted to return to his site. Only then, after completely un-necessary cajoling by the young man, did he release the gate. We do not feel comfortable staying anywhere that we can't drive in and out of when we need to. And the rudeness of this little man topped it off. We hitched up, told the office of the encounter and moved on. Too many nice, friendly places to stay - why subject yourself to rude and obnoxious behavior! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I love this park. It is not the biggest or the best but there is a quality of life here that makes me feel warm and fuzzy. We go here when we want to do nothing but sit back and relax. We love to get the sites by the stream and watch the kids fish and play. I will be back again and again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Tohickon was an average campground. They did have a craft activity and bingo for young children on Saturday AM. The game room was OK. Several games out of order, but not a big deal to us. The owners were very nice, helpful and friendly. We also met some very nice people. The store has minimal basic supplies and the restaurant, which wasn't open yet, looks like it would be a good alternative for breakfast. The wireless worked well at our site. We didn't need to use the showers so I don't know how they were. But, we did stop in to use the bathroom. They looked clean, but no soap or towels/blower to wash and dry your hands. Many of the seasonal sites looks very run down and need a good cleaning. The sites are relatively ungroomed - no concrete pad, lots of leaves from the fall. We did notice some garbage in the wooded areas/along the paths that could have been cleaned up in the fall/spring. The playground was fairly decent. But, next to it looked a little like a junk yard. We probably won't be back because there are just too many other nice campgrounds in the general area. But, it wasn't a disaster. I just think there are nicer campgrounds. We camped here with 2 adults and 2 small children (3 & 6). We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This would be a very nice place in the summer. We were able to get a satellite signal and the internet was reliable. The road to get here was narrow, windy and had lots of trees but since we've been in the part of the country it's something we've grown to expect. Special attention must be paid to the directions to get here if you are over 12 feet high as one way is through a covered bridge. The owners are very nice and helpful. There is a store and a restaurant on site. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park has the potential to be a real gem. Unfortunately, it falls way short. Granted, we were there at the end of a long cold winter, but the unpaved roads were so steep and riddled with HUGE potholes they were almost impassable in some areas. The sites are settled in between the many tall trees and the many boulders, leaving little room for slide outs or parking. Lots of permanent park residents in aging units of all kinds, many with built on "rooms". Booked this one off the internet...won't do that again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
An old fashioned, affordable, no activity, no guest fees, just make your own fun, type of campground. Nice pool, clean and affordable on-site restaurant, nice game room, and new electric service are the upside. Off the main road, full hook up sites are close together, and lots of older dated seasonal trailers are the downside. Updating the bathhouse should be the next order of business here. Overall, not a bad place to stay for a weekend, and definitely better than the local competition. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Well we just got back from Tohickon family Campground. We had a great time with a nice weekend. It's real hard for us to have a bad time even at bad campgrounds. Our over all rating for this CG is low. For us it started at the directions. We have a tall Rig so couldn't take the Covered Bridge route and had to use the alternative route. The directions are a little messed up that were supplied. Once at the CG the entrance needs to be cleaned up as the families house sits right there and is in need of work. The office is real nice and has a new restaurant in it. One good thing is they accepted Good Sam discounts but aren't a Good Sam CG. Pool and kiddy pool are still close but look fine. The new playground is also real nice. Now they put all weekenders down at the bottom of the CG by the river. Hope that it hasn't rained for a few days otherwise you will be in a mud hole. The sites are small. The sewer hook ups are hard to use and way out of the way and not worth it. Our site and some others had nice level gravel pads. The picnic tables are all in need of being repaired. We had a old fire ring that had broken bottles and cans in it. Our site wasn't cleaned up after some else had used it. Also had lots of old leaves that weren't raked up at the start of the season so it was hard to keep the TT clean. As to the rest of the CG they had a lot of older trailers most in good shape but needing a cleaning. We did find a lot of garbage (cans and such. one picnic table) off on the sides. They also had a sewage treatment off to the back corner you didn't want to be close to as the smell was strong. For the price it wasn't worth it. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
