My husband and I have years of back-packing and tent camping experience, but now that we have an 18-month old, we wanted to see how camping as a family would go. The KOA at the Delaware Water Gap was the perfect first camping trip for us. We rented a cabin with a covered porch (bring a baby gate if you have little ones, that was the best for us) and had our camping experience with a little bit of luxury. Sure there was a full kitchen and bathroom and televisions inside the cabin, but we made all our meals over the campfire and didn't use the TVs in order to make our camping trip more authentic. I'm not going to lie - I did appreciate having our own bathroom in the middle of the night! The cabin was unbelievably clean and the staff was overwhelmingly friendly. We took a day hike up in Dingman's Falls - a great spot to take the kids to see the waterfalls. If you have kids and you want to go camping, this is the place to start. I hope we are able to come back every year. And camping in May was great - no bugs!
