Warmer weather's right around the corner and with that comes camping! And when you're ready, experiencing the great outdoors will be a relaxing and rejuvenating escape. 

Most of our campgrounds are family owned on acres of wooded property, providing a variety of amenities with a wide range of camping options for making memories with your family. The Poconos is a place where many have made memories and will continue that tradition when the time is right.

Poconos camping season typically runs from late April to mid-October and with 41 camping locations throughout the region, we’ve got a style for everyone. 

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 and cottages.

Summer Camps

Poconos summer camps offer a variety of programs for both children and adults. Whether looking for a sleep-away camp for the season or hosting a family reunion, the region's camps are perfect for everyone.

Spring kicks off the busy season, and we recommend booking sooner than later. The earlier you make your camp reservations, the better!

Looking for sports camp training for the kids? Blue Mountain Adventure Camp, International Sports Training Camp and Wayne County Camp Alliance offer programs for a range of ages. Mt. Gilead Camp for Girls and Spruce Lake host Christian camps for children throughout the summer while Trout Lake accommodates any large group up to 275 people.


What is glamping? Glamorous, luxury camping! Glamping provide guests with amenities of inside stays outside. 

Campsites at Blue Mountain Resort offers a true home away from home glamping experience. An ATV ride shuttles you to the private sites where you can reconnect with the outdoors by exploring the hiking trails, fishing at the nearby pond or simply relaxing at the secluded camp site.

The 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. Running water in bathrooms, WiFi and electricity are included with your stay. 

No matter if you're sleeping under the stars or cozying up to indoor AC, the Pocono Mountains has the family camping option perfect for you! Be sure to check out our campgroundscottages and summer camps pages for exclusive details.
