Quiet Hours

Quiet Hours
We are known for having a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere and would like all campers to be courteous towards their camping neighbors.
Every night:  10 pm – 8 am
Holiday Weekends:  11 pm – 8 am
During these hours we ask that you make sure that your entire party is at your site, that you keep your voices down, and any music must be shut off during quiet time. If you are found breaking these rules you may be asked to leave.
We do not allow firearms, weapons, or fireworks on the campground premises at any time, if you are found with any of these, you will be asked to leave.

Pool Hours

Our pool is open from Memorial Day to Labor Day, and the hours are 10 am – 8 pm. We do not have a lifeguard, therefore children under 14 years of age are not allowed into the pool area by themselves. You must be at least 21 years old to watch someone younger than 14 in the pool area, and if you are found not following these rules and those listed on the pool gate you will be asked to leave the pool area.

Other Important Information

We do not rent bikes on property, but you are allowed to bring your own bikes to use on the campground. Important; PA LAW states that anyone under the age of 14 MUST wear a helmet when riding a bike; this applies to anyone on campground property. If anyone under the age of 14 is seen riding around without a helmet on, they will be asked to wear one or stop riding. We have a lot of hills and gravel roads on our campground and your safety is important to us!
Motorized Vehicles
Golf Carts, ATVs, and motorized scooters/bikes are not allowed on the property. You will be asked to not use these during your stay if you bring them on campground property, and may be asked to take them off if the rules are not followed. 
According to State Regulatory Laws, you must not bring firewood into Pennsylvania from any other state. Due to the spread of the Spotted Lantern Fly in Pennsylvania, campers are NOT ALLOWED to bring firewood onto Honesdale/Poconos KOA.   We DO sell firewood on the property, it is $10 per bundle and can be purchased in the store upon arrival, or anytime throughout your stay with us.

Meet Your Hosts

Tim & Debby Cartmell

We are campers ourselves & we love camping! We've been owners for 15 years and look forward to having you join us!

We love having you stay with us and we love to camp!  We have camping envy every summer as we run our campground - but love watching you all enjoy yourselves!  But not to worry, we do get out off-season to enjoy some camping ourselves.

We've been in the Pocono area for 15 years, but you will hear Tim say he made Funnel Cakes at the Pocono raceway as a teenager, driving each weekend from Berks County.
The east coast mountains are great for getting outside and having fun, and we try to provide lots of fun here at the campground.

We know that you have many choices as to where you camp and hope that you choose us, Honesdale/Pocono KOA, when you plan your next trip.
