The previous comments say it all: friendly staff, great spot for our tent, free canoes in the lake- we will be back! The playground was really nice too. If you forgot anything - the shop has the campground essentials, too. Thanks for the memorable stay. And the "bear aware" signs are there for good reason...

The Great Divide is a fantastic place for a quick (or long!) getaway. I unfortunately could only stay for 24 hours but the owners and employees could not have been nicer or more accommodating. They even called us on the way to our site to let us know we could park at the site next door for added room. It's... More

We (my boyfriend and I) do not have children and we camp just the 2 of us. This campground had so many families and children staying and there were several activities planned all weekend........Yet we didn't feel crowded or that there were too many people there at all. We felt our campsite had privacy and none of the amenities were... More

This year we celebrated our granddaughters 4th birthday with a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle party. What Fun! The restrooms were always clean and well maintained. The... More

Being a lifelong camper and having camped at most of the campgrounds in Northern NJ, Upstate NY and PA I can say The Great Divide Campground is a place like no other. Once I found this place, I stopped camping anywhere else in the area and have been a seasonal camper for years. The campground is set up to accommodate... More

I was just there this past weekend for a wedding and what a great place to have one. The barn was a great place for cocktail hour and the reception. The campground itself was a little tough to navigate but once we found our cabin we were impressed. It was one of those prefabs that looked small from the outside... More

This campground fits my description of "perfect!".
