Rudest owner ever

The owner of this campground is the rudest angriest man I have ever had the displeasure of paying money to camp with.The sights are ridiculously narrow with your awning touching the side of your neighbors camper or worse yet over their slideout and sewer hookups feet away from your door and picnic table.This was the best they could do after being given all the info on lengths and slideouts,Etc.When one of the folks in our group politely asked if it would be possible to get a discount due to the size of his sight,the owner flew into a tirade of four letter words telling him he had to leave the campground with out a refund,then he came to confront me since I made the reservations,hurling four letter words while my kids are in the camper a few feet away.After lying about the width of the sites he stormed off in disgust allowing us to stay but threatening to call the police at the next broken rule.He was also rude when asked for directions to a nearby attraction and then threw my wifes change at her after she purchased a pack of gum.This place is a crap hole right by the road with no privacy,no activities,a run down little playground and a psychotic owner.Oh and if your lucky enough to get a site by the dumpsters you can enjoy the daily show of the camps crack clean up crew rifling through your garbage bags for their precius aluminum cans.Go to Jim Thorpe ,its beautiful and interesting ,just dont stay here when you go!

Jim Thorpe Campground. We were there a couple of years ago, singing at the campfire he called the police because we were too noisy. He is rude and crazy!

DO NOT STAY AT JIM THORPE CAMPING RESORT:

This is the story of our eventfully short stay this weekend:

We (a group of friends in our mid-twenties) drove to Jim Thorpe Camping Resort excited about our weekend of camping in the outdoors. When we arrived we were directed to our spot in what seemed to be the RV park of the very full resort. Not only did we have to put our tents on gravel, but we were right next to a busy road, but we decided to make the best of what we had.

Our first night, we sat around the fire with a few beers, catching up with friends we hadn’t seen and chatted with the Boy Scout leaders from the site next to us. We were up quite early the next day for white water rafting and at 10:45 (20 minutes before we needed to leave) a man (who didn’t identify himself other than someone who knew the owner) drove up and informed us that there had been complaints about noise the night before, something that we somewhat expected since getting 20 friends together can equal some loud chatter. However, next he told us that there were also complaints of us throwing bottles and that there were pictures of us doing so. Our leader started to explain politely that that had not happened but the man quickly cut him off screaming “Do you want to argue with me!, I say that you threw the bottles and You say you didn’t, I didn’t want an argument, so that’s it, Get out!!” We stood there in shock at his irrational anger...he was frightening! We said nothing but stared and he continued “We have photos. Do you want to go to court! Do you want me to call the cops! You signed a contract. We have the right to kick you out whenever we want. And you’re out!” Again silence because we were shocked by his violent anger. “What are you waiting for, Get out! You have till noon to pack your bags!!”

We were never given the chance to defend ourselves and we were never shown the photos. Because we had 20 minutes before we needed to leave for rafting, we started to madly pack our things. Meanwhile our neighbors from both sides of our site came up to us and asked what had happened. Both agreed that we had been nothing but quiet and courteous and gave us their numbers and signatures as proof. If any bottles were thrown, they would have been thrown into our trash bag because even when the man came to the site, it was spotless … absolutely no trash. This event ruined what was supposed to be an enjoyable weekend, leaving us absolutely homeless with some of us having traveling 4 hours to get there. We lost $200 dollars because of him. We had read many websites saying things exactly like our experience had happened to others but we ignored them. DO NOT IGNORE THIS!! DO NOT GO HERE!!!

Read these, We’re not alone!:

There is also another thread running about this campground . Makes you wonder . There are no mixed reviews. All bad except one in other thread which may be the owner.
