“mold”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2013

Do not stay in the mountaintop . All are infested with black mold. They all smell of mildew and mold. Everything I took there came home smelling the same way. The lofts are full of spiders and look like they are never vacuumed. The location is good that is the best I can say. I would have left except for the fact that we were having a reunion there and were meeting everyone there.

Room Tip: Do not stay in the mountaintop cabins. All are infested with black mold. The lofts are full of spi...

We booked the mountain top retreats for a navy reunion weekend with six families. When we pulled into the "gated" campgrounds I was skeptical. We checked in and discovered they lost our registration (but didn't miss charging our credit card). The only reason why we had "cabin" was one family cancelled at the last minute.

When we arrived to our "cabin" (and I use that term loosely) the screen door was hanging off. We thought we had to use the key to get in, but all we needed to do was push the door open.

There were cobwebs and spiders everywhere, the carpet looked like it has never been vacuumed and the counters were stained. Thank goodness for Clorox wipes! The stove was nasty, it didn't work(wouldn't have used it anyway) and the toilet seat was attached by one bolt!

The sad part is our "cabin" was the best out of the five our group rented. The other structures had black mold on the ceilings and walls and in the showers. In every structure the windows were dingy and if you walked on the carpets in your socks, your docks ended up black.

One family left the next day because they couldn't take it. We all hung outside and only stayed in structures to sleep.

Even though check out time is noon, we were all out of there by 9:00 am. When we went to return the key, the office was closed and the sign said "back at noon". I guess staff could not bear to see their patrons after the horrendous conditions!

DO NOT stay here!!! For the money we paid for the "cabin" ($120/night), we could have stayed in a motel and had better living conditions!!

A call to BBB and Board of Health is clearly in order and will promptly be made when they open on Monday!

i for one , have been going to foxwood my whole childhood. 11 years in the making. I have had the best of times at this campground. Yes i have been to otter lake and many other campgrounds in the east stroudsberg area. and im proud to call foxwood home. Me and my family have been a seasonal at this campground for years and couldnt be happier. this campground gives you one thing that no other campground gives you... and thats freedom. i have never herd someone say they want to be checked on the whole weekend. your crazy, if you want that go to otterlake where you cant even leave your fire unattended to go to the bathroom, be my guest. all these negative reviews are from ignorant people who have no idea how much work has been done by randy and all the seasonals to better the campground. i would love to smack every single one of you across the face. This campground may not be a five star campground , and we sure as hell dont try to play it off to be. The seasonals all care very much about the campground and have a lot of respect for the property. Everybody helps out and keeps an eye on everyone. you may not think you are noticed there but trust me... your noticed. i personally have two golf carts and actually help do security. as well as a majority of the other golfcarts. Just because we dont advertise the security does not mean its not there. i personally am not an owner but have been at this campground for years and know everyone very well. im from new york and have been going there for years. this campground improves every weekend i go there. things dont happen over night. If you would like to know how much work is done there throughout the week when no weekenders are there , be my guest and spend the week before you talk all this smack about how no work was done the ONE sat you were there. You think people are rude at foxwood ? HA you dont know what rude is then. everyone is very friendly and is willing to help in any way possible. and YES i am talking about my fellow seasonals as well as the workers. please keep your ignorant comments to yourself and remember change does not happen over night. XXOXOXOXOXO any qyestions ? got something to say ? please do write back

We just spent the 4th of July weekend at Foxwood Campground in our pop up camper, and had a really great time. Lovely shady campsite with plenty of room for our 2 little boys to run around. Yes, the place is rundown and facilities could use some love, but the owner and seasonals truly love the place and consider it a second home. Everyone works very hard to keep things operating, and we were made to feel extremely welcome. There were plenty of activities for the kids - arts and crafts, pool, hay rides, tye dye, playgrounds, ice cream parties, etc. The price was cheaper than most of the other campgrounds in the area, which we appreciated. My husband said there was no hot water in the mens room, and the bathrooms in general were not clean. But we were not expecting a hotel, it is camping after all :)

It was unfortunate for us that our second night a rowdy group of tent campers arrived and partied all night long. Very loud music and yelling, and they would not respect quiet hours even after we politely asked them 2 times to be quiet. As a family oriented campground, it was disheartening to have our peaceful setting ruined, so we decided to pack it up a day early to avoid another sleepless night. The owner was awesome about the whole thing, and offered us a refund, a free night, and help moving to another location. It was a lot of work to pack up and move, but we appreciated the gesture. He invited us to stay for the day and participate in activities anyway.

While we were disappointed at having to leave early, it did not take away from our positive feelings towards the campground itself. I recommend it for anyone looking for an inexpensive getaway in the Poconos. You will find friendly people and a lot to do for a family.

Tent site was at the bottom of a hill and when the rain came it completely washed out our site. Site was awful not mowed grass up to your calves, uneven ground, huge rocks everywhere THEY DO NOT MAINTAIN THIS CAMPGROUND! DO NOT STAY HERE! BATHROOMS ARE DISGUSTING! SHOWERS DONT WORK, NO HOT WATER TO EVEN WASH YOUR HANDS!!! NO ACTIVITIES AS THEY MENTIONED WHEN BOOKING! I understand camping is supposed to be primitive but when you say you have amenities then you should have them. Pool was not very clean, neither was the crappy store or game room.

This place is really run down! The pictures on the website is nothing like what it looks like in person. Picnic table are decayed and falling apart and the grass was almost up to my knees. Cabin/Trailers are disgustingly filthy! I wouldn't send my worst enemy to this place!
