We arrived at Camp Taylor about noon on Thursday. There was only one other camper in the "Loop" so we really enjoyed the quite. Our site (#67) along the stream was spacious, level and nicely shaded. The area did get more campers by Friday evening. Most were tenters with some noisy children. We were pleasantly surprised that our fellow campers were not rowdy or raucous particularly on Saturday evening. There was some music but mostly live instruments—a guitar in the distance and a fiddle next door. The live music was delightful.

My husband did have problems with the showers. Most of the men’s showers were closed due to repairs. They should have reassigned some of the women’s showers so that there would have been a more even distribution for each gender. There was a porta-potty in the “Loop.” It was fine when we got there on Thursday but by mid-day Saturday, it was horrible.

It should have been cleaned on Friday to prepare for the weekend. I didn’t even want to walk near it on Saturday!
Fire wood is $4.50 a bundle—both regular and kindling. Maybe if kindling were a bit less it might encourage folks to buy some. Finding kindling was a challenge so we weren’t too surprised to find a fellow camper helping himself to some of ours as were returned from a morning outing. Turned out to be a young child whose mother had him apologize!!

Overall, we would return to this campground. Fall would be beautiful there. We spent two mornings biking on the Paulinskill River RR Rails to Trails bike path and visiting Blairstown Airport.

DEFINATELY follow the directions given on the website. If you have an RV or trailer, DO NOT take Mt. Pleasant Rd. from Rt. 94. It is very steep!

For you Catholics, St. Jude in Blairstown is just north on Rt. 94.
