Thousand Trails/Outdoor World Timothy Lake

Park; Thousand Trails/Outdoor World Timothy Lake South, Timothy Lake Road RR6, East Stroudsburg PA, 18302
Date; 8/12/12-9/9/12            
Staff;  Very friendly and helpful staff.           
Price;  $0.00 for 3 weeks, then $29. For the 4th week. Non members I believe it is $40. a night.
Site Description; We had a back in site on gravel/grass.  We backed up to a thick tree line on the upper section of the park.  We had full hook up with 50amp electric. The site was fairly level. Hook ups were good. There is a picnic table and fire ring. Not much privacy between sites in this section. We choose this section for satellite receptions. Other sections have trees and scrubs between sites, see photos. A total of 297 sites.
Big Rig friendly; Yes, very big friendly. The road off route 209 to the park, about 4 miles, is a little narrow, but no problem if you take your time.

Most of the time this is our neighborhood, no neighbors.

 Filling up for Labor Day

Amenities; Many amenities as usual at TT parks, pool, clubhouse, planned activities, etc.  There was a covered dish pig roast over Labor Day, free for all guests. Timothy Lake North has an indoor water park and outdoor pool. “North” is for small rv’s only. There are about 125 cabins for rent in the north section. North is where the lake is located.
Laundry; There is a very clean laundry in the club house, with 3 washers and dryers.
Phone/Wifi/TV; Our Verizon phone worked well with 3G, 3-4 bars most times. We did have a few days were we had trouble connecting to the internet. One of our neighbors had the same problem. I thought it was our computer, but it was the phone.  TV over the air was good, received all major networks. The park was installing a new Wi Fi system. Not sure through  if there is a charge, or if is up and running. They were installing some new antennas by the club house.
Dog friendly; YES,yes. Acres and acres to walk your dogs.
Night;  Very dark, little to no light at all.  Very quiet even over Labor Day when the park was full.
Book Exchange; Very tiny book exchange in the clubhouse
Typical back in
 Typical pull thur, at least 50 similar to this. Some with low hanging branches. Many are very long but a little narrow.
 Daily visiters.

Summary; This is a great park. Very clean and being well maintained. Sure it can have sum upgrades, but almost all parks can use a little upgrading. The only problem we encounter was our surge guard shut down twice during peak hours when the park was full. But it came back on in minutes. The small lake is supposed to have some good fishing, but we didn’t give it a try. The water park is a big bonus, with an indoor lazy river. The north campground is about a mile from the south section. Every day we had deer and a few geese walking through the park. In the lower section of the park about 30 sites are being used for storage. There are a few of these sites with 2 to up to 4 rvs on some of them. Some look like they have been there for a very long time. There are few restaurants and pizza shops starting about two miles from the resort. Five  miles from the park there are many more restaurants. Major grocery shopping is about five miles to a “Super Foodtown” .Large flea market across from food store. The park has several miles of paved roads for walking or biking.  Bonus; you are in the beautiful Pocono Mountains. Just on the border of Delaware Water Gap National Park. We will be back.
