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!". True the interior roads still need some work - but the new management is working on them and they have already made massive improvements on all other issues! It is now a great place to stay. We stayed for a month and can't wait to get back next year! I love that some... More

What a wonderful campround. The staff is friendly and accomodating, and the setting is perfect. There are great group activities or you can just relax by yourself and take it all in. Keep your eyes open when you are there...there are the most unexpected details at every turn.

The Great Divide Campground Staff, Management and Ownership are like nothing else. They would go above and beyond for anyone inside and outside of the campground. It's a great place for kids to enjoy the out doors during summer vacation and plenty of actives for them also. I have recommend this campground to numerous friends and families.

I was in the northeast for a large part of the summer. Some friends in NY recommended a weekend getaway to the Great Divide. I couldn't believe how close to NYC it was. We drove in and were greeted by the staff and one of the owners. They were helpful, friendly and super accommodating to our huge crew. There were... More
