Camping season begins to slow as school starts and we head into fall. It’s the perfect time to camp because the weather is nice, bugs are fewer, and the crowds have thinned.
Poconos camping offers a pristine natural setting with plenty of fresh air and scenery that will take your breath away. It’s the ideal location for campers who want to kick back and relax, as well as for those who love to fish, boat, walk, swim, or just enjoy the outdoors. The incredible views are almost unchanged from what they were 200 years ago. It’s the perfect backdrop for a camping getaway.
The Pocono Mountains region is a popular destination and covers 2,400 square miles of Northeastern Pennsylvania and four counties. Camping sites stretch across the mountains and cater to tent, RV, popup campers and many offer cabins and cottages.
In general, tent campers can expect to pay around $15 per night or less for a tent camping site. National Parks in Pennsylvania don’t charge a park entry fee, so you’ll just be looking at the campsite fee.
RV Poconos Camping
If you think of roughing it as camping in your RV complete with a bathroom, shower, and kitchenette, Poconos State and Federal Parks offer facilities to campers complete with hookups. RV campers will pay more than tent campers, usually around $20 for an RV spot.
Cabins and Cottages
Along with the State and Federal Parks, you’ll find a large selection of private campgrounds in the Poconos region. In additional to tent, and RV camping, many campgrounds offer small cabins and cottages, too. Some of these cabins are rather rustic and basically offer shelter and a platform for your bedding, while others are 2-3 bedrooms with running water. Prices vary from one campground to another.
Most campgrounds offer activities and programs. Camping areas, whether privately owned or run by a government entity, will feature unique opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors. Recreational activities popular in the Poconos include canoeing, kayaking, rafting, hiking, and more. Grab your gear and take advantage of the cooler fall temps.
