Gary the manager, absolutely the best!!!! He needs to have his own campground--it would be run much better!!! The Delaware river---Great!!!The negatives: no rules are enforced. Crowds are a given-...

A friend and I who are experienced kayak'ers rented and went on one of their advertised 'tours'. I was relieved that my friend was experienced (the outfitters did not ask about experience) as there was little or no safety briefing. Basically, this place slaps a PDF on you and sends you down the river on a kayak. It is a... More

I was there a couple of years ago and a member of a near by group decided to wake up his fellow campers just after sunrise. He did so by playing Diana Ross's "Touch Me in the Morning" with the volume turned up to 11. That evening, there was a group chant about Peperidge Farm Layer Cake. I don't know... More

It depends on what you want - for the back to nature, family crews or need some quiet time campers, better to avoid weekend stays OR find a site far from the river because that is where the crowds are - check the site map for site locations. You can even scope out the site before you settle in. However... More

I've been going to Kittatinny Campgrounds every year for the last 5 years. I always have a great time and I always look forward to going on this trip.

I went with 15 friends and we had a blast. Had our tents overlooking the river and plenty of space to set up extra tables. It was basically a big party, which is what we were looking for.

“If you do decide to camp here (I wouldn't), be persistent in making sure that you are placed in a "quiet" area. When I complained to the manager (nice guy), he said that there is an area where the "experienced" campers are placed. I have no idea where that is, but I figure it was much more quiet than our spot.”
