Wish we were staying a few days and the weather was warmer. Pretty location and the lake looked very inviting. A little difficult getting to as it it quite far off the beaten path. Call the office and get directions. There are bridges your GPS will tell you to use that are no longer there!!!!! I am not positive of the site number as we were taken directly to site and I did not receive a map of the place to look over. We were a one night stay only. - Popeye1

No fault of the campground but, getting through Scranton in a driving rainstorm with road construction and negotiating the detour to the campground was an adventure. Once again a gated campground which we like. Very nice and easy pull thru. Utilities were good and room for a good satellite signal. Some full timers but, most were well kept and friendly. The area is well kept and clean. We ere only here for a couple nights to visit Steamtown but, would definitly stay again. - Larry Jenkins

We were met by the owner as we pulled in to register. Very friendly and accommodating. The site was great as we were requiring a pull-through large enough to accommodate our 35' travel trailer without disconnecting. The TV wasn't the greatest, but everything else was good. The view of the lake and the surrounding area was fantastic. Nice place to stay for a couple of days. - Lemon Drop

Eh, It's OK, that's all. If you are a hiker don't waist your time here. Not enough trails and the ones they have are overgrown and just plain suck. Campgrounds are OK and average. No wildlife here. No beach, no lake swimming. They do have a pool but its away from the camping area and gets really crowded by day users. We went down but it was so crowded it was actually gross, so we didn't go in as I will not allow my children swim in conditions like that. We will not return. - GDM

It was a nightmare getting to this park. The gas took us off exit 199 on I-81 and so does the parks own reservation site, but THE ROAD HAS BEEN CLOSED FOR NEARLY A YEAR. We had to back up about a quarter mile to get back onto I-81 because there was no place to turn around. I had called the local office and was told to check I. At the big brown building, but our rig, which they were told was 40' couldn't make the circle by the offices, requiring another backing up and another phone call. We were told that was the correct building but there was another checkin at the campground. I was told with the senior discount it would be $25.50' but when we got there I was charged a$31 after the discount. We checked in on a Thursday afternoon but the ranger charged us for Friday rates because we were leaving on Friday...then said it was a computer glitch and finally agreed with me. She then said it would be $23 and she would bring the refund to our site. A different ranger came with a receipt showing $27 and stood there arguing with me because the lady had made another mistake and asked to see if I "really" had been charged $31....he wouldn't take my word for it. The woman at the gate told me that based on the price of our rig that $31 should seem cheap to us. Anyways, we got to the site and it was nice, but our experience had already been ruined. - Ginny H

We camped here over Memorial Day weekend. We had a back in site next to the restroom. They have large deep sinks outside of the restroom so it is easy to wash dishes there. Sites are very shaded and tend to be narrow but no problems to get slides out. Very quiet campground for a holiday weekend. The lake is large and has easy access if you have a boat. Pool was closed at our visit because they are doing repairs to it. This wasn't our first visit here and we will be going back again. - joinpa

Very disappointed after reading so many raving reviews. Not worth the money In our opinion. Lake was very dirty, unfriendly campers and amenities were very spread out. - NunyaBiznes

Disappointed with our stay. Campground is not laid out all that well, not great for larger rigs, turns are tight. Mostly seasonal sites here. Very few daily sites are actually nice. Most sites seem poorly kept with overgrown weeds including the daily sites, grass definately should have been mowed/weedwacked prior to check in. Pool is very small, and though there is a lifeguard they do absolutely nothing to control people or enforce any rules - it's an accident waiting to happen or worse. Did I mention alcohol is allowed at the pool...cue the loud drunks... Plus the pool closes way too early. Lake is pretty slimy, with big gross algae bubbles...not sure what they are but totally gross. There is a dog beach (not that you really want your dog in that slimy water) but no dog park so that is disappointing. Bath houses could use improvements like hard outer door for dressing area of showers, shower curtains to fully cover wet area and they also need cleaning. Oh and prepare to pay to shower...25 cents gets you 5 minutes if you are lucky. Sometimes they take your money and don't turn on, and sometimes they shut off prematurely. One of men said shower lasts between 3-7 munutes on their side. Ridiculous and there is no change machine at the bath house either-thanks for the inconvenience. Water pressure is good in the shower depending how many are running...but look out if someone flushes a toilet water pressure decreases and gets cold :-( Wifi is poor- couldn't even get enough of a signal to check email. Best thing I can say about this place is the people at the store are nice and they deliver firewood to your site. - Trailer Camper

Great time. Labor Day weekend stay. Got there on Friday and realized the next morning that the campsite being out friends was vacant. Immediately contacted the office which allowed us to move to a campsite that was closer to our friends. Lots of activities for the whole family. - wheezer01

Big Rig Friendly. This is a trailer park that the owner is adding RV sites. Our site was gravel, spacious and level. The owner was very accommodating. Currently this is a no frill park. Safe and secure, just what we need. Streets are wide. Full time residents are friendly. - Lama79

"Secluded", very well named. This is pretty much one of those seasonal, mostly weekend getaway type of parks. There are spots arranged around 2 small swimming ponds, but they all seemed to be taken by seasonal renters. Some spots were very well maintained, others gave the term "trailer park" its bad reputation. For the most part, it was pretty nice looking. We reserved a spot over the phone, very clear about the size of our rig, but when we checked in we were told we'd never fit and were put in the pull-through field in back of the office. We had a lovely view of the work barn and the log splitting operation. Really just an open field. Satellite worked, no antenna TV, and no usable Verizon data service. I had to drive out of the park 10-15 minutes to get my phone to work as a hot spot. Also, it's about half a mile down a very, very dusty gravel road. Our toad was unrecognizable. We didn't sit outside. The spots behind the office are in an industrial setting, people buzz by joy riding in their golf carts, the horse shoe pit was right in front of the rig, men swearing like sailors "F this and F that", so overall it was pretty miserable. If you're a local looking for a seasonal get away, have at it. If you're a tourist, I recommend looking elsewhere. - Florida Don

This is a very small campground taken over by a new owner with ambitious plans. He also recently purchased waterfront property (Lake Mocatek) to expand the 45 sites to 100+. The very friendly owner greeted us as we entered the campground and told us to drive around and pick an open site. He very patiently and with humor put up with me changing my mind not once but several times, even after I had him cut down a limb in a site that we ended up not using. All this before we even settled the bill. The campground was friendly and it was quiet. During this Memorial Weekend, we saw the owner working hard on several different projects. We used this campground as a base to visit a relative and we noted other campers using it as a base as they used the local recreational facilities (Lake Wallenpaupack). There were also seasonal campers here. We look forward to returning to this campground to witness its growth and changes and we wish the owner success in this endeavor. - Tulirose

The main office that services the campground is down at the lake, at the boat launch. To check in, you need to proceed to the lake. There is one shared entrance/exit for the entire lot which is loaded with boat trailers and traffic. After checking in, the only way to turn around with a trailer or larger RV is to loop past the boat ramp so you can make the turn back toward the shared entrance/exit. The sites are either right along the shoulder of the road (a fairly busy 2 lane country road) or up on the mountain. The mountain sites are more secluded and many had good crushed stone pads, but be warned it is extremely tight and twisty to get up there. Many sites require a "jackknife" backup turn to get in them. Probably fine if you are a seasonal and only going in once for the season, but if you have a bigger rig, you might want to reconsider for a weekend trip. Low voltage situation. Neighbors AC burned up. Our microwave would hardly heat. The kicker was upon checkout, the dump station is across the main road along a row of campsites that run parallel to the road behind a row of trees. The entrance is again a tight turn, compounded by bollards placed about 10 feet wide around the entrance, and they allow a truck and boat trailer to park parallel. After "threading the needle" to turn into the dump station, there is space for 1 car/trailer to pump out, so any other cars can squeeze by you. After getting there, and getting into place, I found the dump cap had a padlock on it (during a holiday weekend!). There is a sign that reads "please visit the camp office for a key". Mind you this is after you stunt drive your RV into this tight pull-off. Back into the rig, drive back to the main road, into the parking lot full of boats with no camper parking. Into the store, get the key, now get in line and wait 30 minutes behind a line of boats trailers waiting to pull their boats out of the lake before you can get out and back to the dump site. My advice, camp elsewhere if you don't need to be here. - cramerpp

This campground is in the middle of nowhere. Sites are mostly taken up by seasonal weekenders. The road is steep and gravel. There is one toilet half way down the campground. The only showers were up at the check in. Walked up the hill to them, carrying our stuff only to find there was no water. They were darkly lit and unappealing. There is another campground 2 miles away that is not listed on this site that has to be better than this. Highway robbery for the prices amenities. - PF Churchill

Stayed during Memorial Day weekend which was very busy. Overall the park is very rustic but the bathrooms and showers are clean. The pool seemed clean. There's a large playground with basketball hoop, swings & sea-saw for kids. The staff was very nice, readily available and helped as needed. The staff was very easy-going and accommodating to last-minute requests and upgrading.
The site is a mixture of overnighters and people who stay with their RVs for the season. With all the campsites full on the holiday weekend, it was very tight. Power and water are available at many of the sites, and others are primitive.
I think this would be a very nice campsite on a quieter weekend. The game room was older with a pool table, air hockey & pin ball machine. It is not a campsite with Wi-Fi and all the amenities. Don't expect hours of entertainment in the game room. It's the kind of campsite that you would relax by the fire, perhaps read, nap on a blanket in the field, play frisbee & enjoy nature. - CamperKim

Directions to the campground were confusing, making it hard to find. It is quite a distance from grocery stores and gas stations. When I telephoned for assistance I got a recording. The facilities were minimal, the on-site staff was hard to find, the office was unattended and there was no answer at the posted telephone number, some of the interior roads were very steep, sites were heavily wooded. Our site a pull-thru horseshoe and not quite level. I would say that it was barely satisfactory for a short stay. - tweymouth

Maybe once upon a time, Valley View was a farm, but now it is fields of mown and mostly unmown grass. Maybe once it was a campground, but now it is a trailer park. We had a reservation but although the office was open, there was no one around and no information on a spot for us. A sign said to pick a spot. So we entered the campground. We were greeted by a barking, lunging pit bull on a tie down chain.
Fortunately a resident came out to warn us to find a ground-stone pad site because the grass spots were so saturated by rain that we'd sink. It took us an hour to get level. It was backin, so we had to disconnect our tow vehicle and park next to the bus. Once set, I took out our dogs for a walk. But now the pit bull had gotten loose and was running around the park. The residents across from us were outside and screaming at each other. We left early the next morning and definitely won't be back! - Dapper

A bit out of the way park with mostly seasonals but they do have a few back-in sites with an excellent view of the surrounding mountains and farms.
Owner lives on site and makes sure to stop by and see if everything is OK. Seasonals are very friendly and it has a small town appearance. - Sheila123

This is a great getaway for smaller rigs and park models. It rates lower as a big rig stopping spot. There are only a couple of sites that are level, big enough for a 40-foot RV, and have full hookups. The campground is situated on a lovely spot in the Poconos off the beaten path. Grocery stores and other amenities are about 10 miles away. There is no WiFi.
On the plus side the sky is wide open for satellite reception and there is good cell phone access. The owners are very friendly and the permanent campers seem like a pleasant group of people. We had a nice quiet few days with the campground to ourselves. The Memorial Day weekend brought the regulars out and it was different but still a nice place with a nice view. - seeyajohn

This is really quiet campground but farther from Honesdale than the GPS originally said however we were told we could avoid the long GPS scenic on a one lane road route if we used a map. Mostly permanents, most tourist sites are on the lake. Sites were graveled last year and are almost level, close enough that I didn't need the wedges. Bring DVD's, I had intermittent Verizon so no internet :( There is a camp Wi-Fi signal but I didn't try it. Met a couple who have been coming here 6 years, they plan on being the new owners by spring. - LatitudeAdjustment

We've been staying at Ponderosa Pines campground for years now. It's economical, clean, and pet friendly. The owner is very nice and helpful. The kids love it, there's always fun activities to keep them busy. We enjoy participating in the cornhole or horseshoe tournament. Would definitely recommend trying out this campground. Drive slowly throughout the park, there's a lot of kids on bikes and people walking their dogs. - TFerra

Very out of the way campground, which suited us just fine. Our site was between 2 seasonal sites and was very quiet. When we first arrived we needed to clear out all the leaves in the site and there was garbage in the fire ring. The lake was nice and was able to do some fishing. They have available internet which came in handy for us. We had a hillside site and was ideal for us. If you want sun, try a lakeside site. - klbmn
