Summer’s here and so is camping! What better place to reconnect with the great outdoors than the Pocono Mountains? With 35 camping locations throughout the region, we’ve got a style for everyone. 

Our camping season typically runs from late April to mid-October. Most of our campgrounds are family owned on acres of wooded property, provide a variety of amenities and offer a wide range of camping options while making memories with your family.

Whether you want to disconnect and reconnect with family, or need to check the ‘likes’ on your campfire pic, our campgrounds can suit any style! Read on for a breakdown of camping options for your next camping trip to the Pocono Mountains. Be sure to watch our video at Hemlock Campground and Cottages below for insider information!

Tent Sites

Take the tent out of your backyard, and enjoy a change of scenery! Most campsites are furnished with a fire ring, picnic table, water and electric. Campgrounds also have restrooms with hot showers, and technology upon request. Want a site with a view? River Beach Campsites offers riverfront camping sites along the scenic Delaware River.   

Interested in something a little more off the grid? Campgrounds like Jim Thorpe Camping Resort offer bare bone campsites for a true “roughing it” experience.

Ruff it with your pooch! Don Laine Campground and Foxwood Campground welcome pets with dog parks and trails. Check out our other pet-friendly accommodations, and bring your best friend on a vacation they’ll love, too!

RV Campsites

Depending on the campground, most offer daily, seasonal, long term and year-round RV sites. Otter Lake Camp Resort and Mountain Vista Campground have full hook-ups, 50 amp electric and free TV and WiFi (yes, I said it.) Pull thru campsites and back in sites vary upon location.

Many campgrounds, including both tent and RV campsites, offer stores fully equipped with ice, campfire supplies and snacks just to name a few items. On-site activities vary by location, but include kid-friendly happenings, game rooms, entertainment and water recreation. Relax by the pool, play a round of mini-golf or join a game of beach volleyball. The choice is yours!

Cottages are fully-equipped for that home away from home feeling. Kitchens, fireplaces and BBQ grills are some of the conveniences you can enjoy in a cottage rental. Of course, it wouldn’t be like home without cable and internet, would it?

Experience privacy and comfort from either wooded or waterfront sites. Enjoy lakefront views from your private porch; even enjoy the same amenities and activities you would at a campground. Outdoor adventure and water recreation can be enjoyed at places like Babbling Brook Cottages and Sylvania Tree Farm & Country Lodging.

Campgrounds like Hemlock Campground and Cottages and Keen Lake Camping & Cottage Resort offer the best of both worlds; tent and/or RV sites & cottages. Check out our video below for an inside look at Hemlock Campground and Cottages! Although our contest is over, we still have some great tunes and information to share with you!


What is glamping? Glamorous luxury camping! Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort offers two types of glamping; island glamping and riverside glamping. Access Shawnee's private island by a 20-minute canoe ride for island glamping, or walk to a semi-secluded area of their property for riverside glamping. 

Glamping tents are provided for guests along the scenic Delaware River. Running water is available for the bathroom and showers as well as WiFi and electricity. An island glamping overnight stay is complete with a queen-sized bed, coffee maker, snacks, fireside hangout, and hot breakfast. Don't worry, glamping still has s’mores! Enjoy concierge treatment for your island glamping stay; you won’t even have to lift a finger. Want the royal treatment? Book either a riverside or luxury glamping stay at Shawnee!
