Time to take it slow in the Poconos! The unique and rustic Dingmans’s Campground is located in the scenic Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area. Campers can choose spacious sites along the banks of the Delaware River, in the forest, or in picturesque meadows. Most campers opt to float down the river in kayaks or canoes, and absorb the bright blue skies and deep green woods. Sounds pretty dreamy, will you extend the invite?

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!

If you don't get ahold of anyone when you call the number to reserve, just leave a message and they'll call you back. They get last minute cancellations.

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!

We booked a tent site last minute for a canoe trip. River sites seem really nice, but it was a July weekend so they were all booked. The other tent sites are VERY close together, and there are lots of big groups and family/friend reunuions playing loud music until quiet hours at 10 pm. Even after that, 2 of the groups near us were talking and laughing loudly and playing music (although much quieter, but definitely loud enough for their neighbors to hear) until 12:30 am. It's a dry campsite but there was definitely alcohol. If you are with a big group, this could be a really fun place. But if you're looking for peace and quiet, choose somewhere else. We have stayed at nearby Worthington State Forest and it was much nicer.
