I am an avid camper and every year I would scope out different campgrounds (PA, NJ, & Upstate NY) looking for the perfect place where I would want to return faithfully. I finally found it! The Great Divide offers all I look for plus some. To start with, the owners & staff are such wonderful, friendly, ppl. that truly want to accommodate each & every guest.
The campgrounds are well maintained and so are all of their facilities. They offer many different accommodations such as beautifully maintained campsites & RV rentals. You are also welcome to bring your RV if you have one. I like to rotate and book tent sites for camping out the old fashioned way and I rent the RV when I have elderly family member's who want to join in on the great experience but are to not up to par to sleep in a tent. The RV rental offers a full range kitchen to include a gas stove & stove top, sink, microwave, full sized refrigerator, table & chairs, sofas with pull out sofa beds, TV, full bath, one full size bedroom, and a duplex loft sleeping area for the kids!
Other campground amenities include a store (where you are bound to find anything you need or may have forgotten to pack), an Olympic sized swimming pool, a basketball court, a life size chess/checker board, a beautiful lake with paddle-boats, a stage/lounge area (lounge area during the day to include tables, sofas, & even rocking chairs) which is sometimes used as a stage for concerts in the evening during holidays and some weekends, a beautiful playground for the kids and even a dog park for your furry family members! I also love the fact that they have a separate barn house where they hold activities to include breakfast (for a small nominal fee) crafts, activities, & even cookouts on the huge lawn area which faces the lake and stage.
I highly recommend this campground for large groups, small groups, couples and families! They are guaranteed to not disappoint! I just stayed for 3 nights and 4 days during Memorial day weekend and I am so excited to return this July 4th. See you there!
