What a pleasant, clean, enjoyable camping experience! We arrived at this facility ready for camping fun! Our large group of 10 families fit perfectly into site W. We set up our tents under a part sun/shade area equipped with water, fire ring, picnic table and cable. Nice amount of space between sites. The kids rode their bikes between activities we... More

We organized six families for a group tent camping trip and had the lower W loop to ourselves for two nights. Easy walk to bathrooms (kept clean) and three walk in showed (very narrow). Mixed...

We just stayed at the Great Divide, it was beautiful! We stayed in trailer S1A and it was perfect for our family. It had an enclosed porch where my son could run around in his walker, and a loft where my daughter and her friend slept. My husband and I enjoyed our bedroom and everything was nice and clean. We...

What a fantastic family place and so close to NYC. Trailer/Cabin was great and luxurious. Activities were great for all ages. Facilities all modern and grounds well kept. Staff extremely friendly and always going out of way to make your experience great. Will definitely be back very soon. Planning to bring even more family and friends here.

We camped The Great Divide for 3 days and 2 nights in August. The campground was very clean and the staff worked day and night to upkeep the property. Everyone we encountered were friendly and helpful. Our site was perfect for the 2 of us and was well maintained. The pool area was nice but the lake was pretty small... More

We travel in a motor home and were searching for a place to spend a long weekend. We settled on The Great Divide and were glad we did! The campground has a Beautiful Mountain setting with large sites and grassy areas. If camping in a tent their tent sites are the nicest we've seen for both individual and group camping.... More

It was very clean and neat and all the staff were pleasant. The had some kids programs, but our 7yr old son preferred playing with other kids, kayaking/row boat,... More
