Veryl nice and quiet family oriented park... Plenty of shade under the large trees that kept the sites cooler and more comfortable... Not very large sites, but larger than many other parks.. Privacy was good because of the site orientation... Some sites difficult to back into, but not impossible with a little patience... Good that I carry extra sewer line, because I needed it at the site I was in.. Camped ate site 141... Nice corner site and ample room... Highly recommend for the relaxing and quiet wooded campground

Lots to do, or do nothing at all.... just breathe! Spacious, wooded campsites are cleared enough for relaxation, campfires and outdoor dining, but left natural enough to FEEL the out of doors. Staff do their jobs in a relaxed, friendly way. The camp store has fun stuff, yummy stuff and camping necessities.

We called this park late in the afternoon on a Friday, they said they could put us in overflow (field) parking. I expected an empty field boy was I surprised. The area was at the back of the park alright but it had water, electric, cable and WIFI (no sewer). Frankly, if I were staying for some time I would prefer this quite more open area. The park area itself has narrow rough gravel roads but appears to accommodate the big rigs just fine. It has many season sites but all are kept very nice. The bathroom we used was very small, toilet only, but extremely clean. The check-in store area was clean and busy and the staff friendly and helpful. We had pizza delivered to our camper and it was really good.

Very nice place. The bathrooms and sites are kept clean. The staff is friendly and helpful. The sites are roomy and arranged to maximize privacy. This is my first visit, but definitely will be a place I stay on a regular basis.

Stayed a week here and enjoyed it. Very nice campground. Site was fairly level and electric was clean. Good hiking in the area. Restrooms were clean. Our kids are young adults now, but the younger kids in the park seemed to be enjoying themselves. We would definitely use this campground again.

This was our first year as a seasonal at Rip Van Winkle. This is a nice and well run campground. The staff are there if you run into any problems. They have kept the trees so you really feel you are in the woods. Can't wait to go back next year.
