The vibe at Dingmans Campground
Drop some Dingmans Campground knowledge on us.
Quick drive from NYC (approx 2 hrs). You get the vibe Dingman's is a family spot. They say no alcohol is permitted so it's not for partying. The river sites are nice. You can see your neighbors in almost every spot. Not very remote, but decent overall.
You can do a 4hr easy canoe/kayak trip nearby on the Delaware for around $50/person. It's very nice. Lots of wildlife (bald eagles& bears). Good easy hikes nearby. The campstore has a lot of stuff if you forget anything.
LOVED our time camping at Dingmans Campground. We were on site 116, a riverfront walk-in site and it was pure bliss. Each morning I had my coffee down on the shores of the Delaware River, mere steps from the tent, and watched the water pass by while bald eagles flew overhead. The staff was very friendly and the bathrooms were clean. Down on the river sites port-a-johns are provided, while the main bath house is located quite a ways away. I highly recommend camping here and will definitely be going back myself!
Awesome spot for a quick getaway. Have camped here three times with a sizable group of friends and have never been disappointed. Campsites are fairly close together but wooded enough that you feel separate and have some privacy. The water front spots are amazing and we never really felt the need to leave the grounds because of all the fun we had exploring the river right in our "backyard". If you can't get a hold of anyone when trying to make a reservation (which happens a lot), just leave a message and they will return the call.
We stayed in the last walk-in river site (little bit of a hike with all your stuff but worth it!), had views of the river, shade, and the water and port-o-potties a short walk away. I would definitely recommend the walk-in sites as it keeps you secluded from the madness of a Saturday campground fill-up. Most sites we saw were large, very well cleared, and shaded (at least the river sites). Ours didnt offer too much privacy from the site next door so plan accordingly or, it would be an amazing spot for a larger group needing both sites. It is definitely a family campground with lots of big groups. If you're used to camping, without the luxuries, it's a perfect spot. Tons of hiking within 10-15 minute drives and river activities!
