Based on the reviews, I was a little leery of Mountain Vista, but by the end of the weekend I came away fairly positive.
Every campsite is wooded (with big full mature trees), covered in gravel, and a decent enough size.
Good quality interior roads and the sites are easy to back in
- Despite the fact that it is very wooded, bugs weren’t a big problem (don’t get me wrong there are a decent number of them, but not as bad as you would expect).
The staff was friendly
Excellent Wifi at your site – Two big plusses (1) it was fast enough that I could stream Netflix without any problems and (2) we could connect two devices at the same time. (both are frequently issues at other campgrounds).
We do not have kids, so I cannot fully comment on the activities, but it seemed like they have a lot of options.
At check in, they provided a very good map of the area and local information.
They do not take credit cards
Making the reservation was a nuisance. First you have to call them to make the reservation, and then log on to their website and put the information from your check in for the deposit.
Bathrooms – as other readers have commented, there is only 3 showers each for men and women for the ENTIRE campground. I found them to be relatively clean, but kind of old and full of flying bugs common in the woods. I can’t imagine how frustrating that would have been had I needed to use them.
They listed an RV Show as an activity for the weekend, which consisted of a local dealer bringing TWO trailers to the campground. It wasn’t worth the time to walk to the “show”.
All in all, I would consider coming back for my next trip to the Poconos, although there are a lot of other good campgrounds that I will consider as well.
