I visited this place on July 4th weekend for 3 nights. I stayed on the River's edge tent site with 2 kids, ages 6 and 8. Great time! Property was very clean, and enough activities to do over a weekend for everyone. Pool area was clean, but a bit too many people for my taste. The ice cream truck and... More

The staff were really great - helpful and friendly. The property had a rustic feel - it is located in a forest. Sites had lots of space. There was plenty of room between sites. Roads and sites were not paved but the entire property was well maintained. A nice mix of day campers and seasonals. Also, lots of tent sites... More

Awesome memories made here. What a lovely place. The staff are friendly. The bathroom are very clean. Our tent site by the river was beautiful. We had a great time swimming, fishing and sitting by the campfire. We enjoyed our visit and will be back soon. Thanks for a wonderful weekend!

Stayed in a cabin for the first time. Amazing! Stayed outside to cook and sit by the fire. Came inside to a warm cozy cabin. Fridge, tv and wifi were extras. Back deck with a view of a small lake was cherry on top. Already looking to book again!

This is a great family friendly campground. Each site is modestly spacious with woods surrounding each site. Each site is rocked so it keeps a lot of bugs away and helps with not bringing dirt into your camper, however if bringing pets bring something soft to lay on when outside. As far as pets... They also have doggie bags and... More

Chose this site on-line as a place to visit on our way back home. It was wonderful!! The wooded lots are gorgeous and private. Sites and amenities were clean and well maintained. Unfortunately we could only stay two nights as big Halloween plans were taking over the park but we loved every moment we were there. Had a site way... More

Had a great time at Rip Van Winkle! From checkin to checkout everything was top notch! Robyn was very helpful. We stayed the end on August down on the River Edge. Clean bathrooms, awesome watering hole, bouncy slides (for adults too)! Nice size site right on the water. You are camping with RV's but you're not on top of each... More

This is the cleanest, friendliest and BEST campground we ever stayed at!! The staff was very friendly and the bathrooms and showers are superb. They also have a cute little decorated truck that delivers ice cream, ice and firewood right to your site!! Looking forward to our next visit there in the Fall:-))

Haven't been here in years but it was as nice as I remember. Very nice grounds, clean bathrooms and friendly staff. Grounds were peaceful after quiet hours and other campers were very friendly. Highly recommended campground, we will be back.
