Rude Staff

"This had to be the worst camping experience ever (thanks to this facility and staff). The Space aka cubicles: the lots are separated by a thin line of trees (if you are lucky) some are only separated by logs to make boundaries Tents are practically on top of each other and the grounds are really small. the good spots (by the water) are spaced out a bit better, but the water is filled with rocks and shallow. Either way, it doesn't matter. The grounds are so small and laid out so poorly, you can hear your tent neighbor's conversations. The Staff: So, when my boyfriend and I got to the campgrounds, we were so excited to get away from the city and start our wilderness adventure (despite the crappy grounds) we didn't read the rules and didnt see the signs saying no alcohol"". (sorry)." Within seconds of unpacking the beer, the staff came over and told us that there was no alcohol permitted. I apologized and said I didn't know and then he said... So, you couldn't see the signs right when you came in that said no alcohol, or was it the rules that you couldn't read. I am going to be nice and not make you pour it out just as long as you put it back in the car and you better do that because i am coming back with a ranger tonight. This... was something that pissed us off. 1. if we KNEW it was not okay, would we have put it out on the picnic table in clear view of the road and the camp staff's house cabin?? 2. Freaking rude... last thing he needed to do was insult my intelligence and talking to me like i was 5...to add insult to injury...Late at night (about 2am) the same staff (Aussie accent), HAD ABOUT 10 of his friends being rowdy and SMOKING POT. Apparently drinking is not okay but smoking pot is...what he should have been doing was telling the arguing couple that swearing up a storm to be quiet in the hours past midnight and the families with dogs who couldn't stop barking... to the point that by 7 am the dog's voice was hoarse.. DO yourself a favor and DO NOT go here unless you are desperate and forgot to book a campground 2 days in advance. The only positive to this campground is that: 1. You can walk-in and probably still get a spot the day of.. 2. It is the only campground within the Delaware water gap 3. the bathrooms are somewhat clean."
