Dingmans Campground
Reviewed 24 September 2008

We stayed at Dingmans campground for three nights at the end of 2008 summer. The summer weekends are very busy and sell out way ahead of time, since the water gap is really gorgeous and pretty close to both NYC and Boston.

We were in spot # 100, which was a nice spot near the bathrooms and not too far from the general store and the river. The spots are generally roomy and shady with enough trees to give you some privacy. The fire ring and the table were great to have, but no water or electricity and no alcohol allowed!

My one big complaint about Dingmans is the shower/bathroom. The floors were almost always wet and slippery, either from poor drainage of the one and only shower or maybe from leaks from under the FILTHY toilets. The shower’s warm water trickled with virtually no pressure and turned ice cold when someone opened the sink faucets. It was so bad that if I ever go there in the future, I will not shower! I know that this is camping and not a hotel but, I have seen much better campgrounds.

The general store was great and had all that you could need. The staff and the rangers were super cheerful, helpful, and lovely.
There are daily kayak and canoe trips from the campground. I believe the run is nearly 9 miles! For you once in a while kayakers, I want to reminder you that it takes a lot more energy and time that one would think to paddle down the river. We took our time in the beginning and had to paddle vigorously to get back by 5:30 PM. We were all hurting so bad the next day!!

Overall, Delaware Water Gap camping was a pretty nice experience, mostly because of the nice people we encountered, and the joy of fishing, hiking and seeing the waterfalls. Dingmans Camp ground however, was conveniently located and inexpensive, but nothing special to rave about.
