Do I have to be a member?
Yes. The Woods Campground is a private membership facility. Every guest on the property must be a member.
How do I get a membership?
Making an account in our database is the first step of becoming a member. The easiest way is to click Join Our Mailing List at the top of our website. You can bypass the credit card registration, but please make sure all other fields are completed. Otherwise, we’ll have to take the time to complete this process upon check-in which will delay your registration. When you arrive to camp, Guest Services will print your membership form and charge you for the membership. A valid government issued photo ID is mandatory. The Woods Campground has two options for memberships: A full season membership which expires on the last day of the current camping season or a 7 consecutive day temporary membership for guests who aren’t planning a return visit in the current camping season.
I was a member in the past. Do I need to renew it this season?
A new membership is required each season. Your membership card and member ID# remain the same forever, but a new membership form will be printed upon your first visit each season.
How much is it to visit The Woods Campground?
We have three options for visiting The Woods Campground.
1. Booking a campsite for Overnight Camping
2. Being a guest on someone else’s campsite (transient or perm site)
3. Buying a day or night pass for a designated period of time (but never overnight)
Rates for all three options are on our website’s Rates Page.
Can I upgrade my day pass to an overnight stay?
Yes. You will only be charged the difference in price. This must be done through Guest Services because you will need a new car tag and wrist band.
Where do I park?
Each campsite has room for one vehicle. All other vehicles should park in our parking lot.
Can I just sleep in my car?
No. The Woods Campground does not allow overnight camping in your car if it is not outfitted with sleeping accomodations.
What are the guidelines for overflow camping?
When all regular sites are booked, many guests camp in our overflow field. The overflow areas do not have any amenities like electric, water, sewer, shade, a fire ring or a picnic table. You do have access to outlets to charge your devices conveniently located on our clubhouse patio. Also, our comfort stations are close by for toilets, hot showers and sinks for washing your utensils. For those with trailers, potable water is available on the corner of our storage building across from the flag poles. Your site does not have any borders. Your camping space is whatever you need to set up your tent or trailer. One vehicle is allowed in your camping area but on busy weekends, it may be difficult to maneuver a way out if you decide to leave camp. Additional vehicles should park in our parking lot. Overflow sites are priced per person which make them the most economical way to camp – especially if you’re a single guest. Minimum night requirements are still enforced. Overflow sites are unlimited but are chosen on a first arrive, first pick basis.
Is there access to electric in the overflow camping area?
There is limited electric in the overflow area. There are two poles with multiple 15 amp outlets which guests can pay a fee to access. These will not power air conditioners or heaters. See Guest Services to arrange this electric on a first come, first served basis.
Are their grills at the campsites or grates on the fire rings to cook my own food?
None of our sites are equipped with a grill although we sell propane and charcoal grills in the camp store. The fire pits are open pits although we do sell grates for them in the camp store.
What if I don’t know all the people who will be camping with me?
Book your site with the people who you know at that time. Guest Services can edit your reservation by adding or deleting names but all added guests must have an account in our database. The more information you provide prior to your arrival, the quicker check-in will be. Communication is key. The best way to provide this information is by emailing Guest Services.
I’m a tenter – can I reserve a site with more amenities?
The Woods Campground doesn’t restrict the type of camping equipment used on a site. Some sites are meant for more than tent camping, but you can still book them. On the other hand, some sites are not meant for larger RV’s. This is all outlined on the site descriptions on our camp map page.
How do I get there if I don’t drive?
You may be able to travel to camp by bus from your area (including NYC and Philly). Please visit Susquehanna Trailways for their schedule. Your destination should be Lehighton, PA. From there, you can take Carbon Taxi or Uber to the campground. We are aware of one Uber driver who can be contacted directly at 267-745-5711. Our address is 3500 Forest Street, Lehighton, PA.
Are pets allowed at camp?
Yes. The Woods Campground allows friendly dogs or other domestic animals but they MUST register with us. Evidence of vaccination is required. Only pets accompanying individuals having overnight accommodations are permitted to be on the property. With the exception of legitimate service animals, pets are not allowed in the clubhouse recreation area – only by your campsite or walking with a leash. You must clean up after your pet and discard the waste in the nearest trash can. Poop bags are provided throughout camp. Excessive barking or howling will not be tolerated. You will be held fully responsible for the action of your animal. Pets (including emotional support animals, comfort animals and pet partners) are NOT allowed inside Cabins , Luxury Trailers or Park Model Resort Home rentals. Legitimate service animals must be cleared through campground owners. ADA and FHA information can be found here and here.
What’s your cancellation and refund policy?
Please see our cancellation policy at the bottom of our Rates Page.
Can I get refunded if a family emergency or my job forces me to cancel my reservation?
We’re sorry, our cancellation policy is enforced no matter what the reason. You may want to consider travel insurance.
Are there minimum nights required for a reservation?
Weekends require a two night stay. Holiday weekends require a three night stay. There is no minimum for weekday reservations.
If I cannot stay the entire weekend because I have to work, can I get a refund for the second night?
Sorry, no refunds for early departure will be given. If there are sites available, you can book a campsite for a Saturday night earlier that same day.
How many tents or RV’s will fit on a site?
Please visit our camp map page where we list the dimensions of each camp site.
Can additional guests stay on my cabin site in a tent?
Yes, each cabin has limited yard space to erect a tent. Only one vehicle can park at the cabin.
Do you sell alcohol?
No. The Woods Campground is a BYOB facility. Only guests 21 and older may responsibly consume alcohol. In Pennsylvania, wine and spirits are sold in state owned stores and beer is sold at beverage distributors. Guest Services can provide directions to these stores located in in Lehighton or Brodheadsville. The closest beer distributor to camp is Beltzville Beverage. If you’re going to Lehighton for liquor, you’ll find Dunbar Beverage on the way. Recently, Giant Food Store started selling beer and wine in smaller quantities (6 or 12 packs). Please note that no glass bottles or containers are allowed on the pool deck or in the hot tubs. Overly intoxicated guests will not be tolerated and will risk being banned and arrested for their resulting behavior.
What’s your smoking policy?
Pennsylvania law doesn’t allow interior smoking (our cafe, store or check in shed). Our outside dining area has a few non-smoking picnic tables. Our pool deck is smoke free except in the designated smoking area to the right of the pool cabana. Please dispose of your butts in a proper container. At no time in any location of the entire property is it okay to flick your butt on the ground.
Are there Groups Discounts?
Please visit our Group Guideline Page
Is the entire facility clothing optional or just certain areas?
The entire property is clothing optional except for the café dining room. We ask that traditional standard nudist etiquette is followed including using towels when sitting. Learn the property borders when hiking. Never stray off our designated hiking trails.
Are there a lot of people having sex?
Public nudity doesn’t equate to sexual activity. If that is the environment you’re seeking, The Woods Campground is not for you. We prohibit public sexual behavior.
Will I be welcome if I’m trans? A cross dresser? A straight couple?
The Woods Campground is designed for the LGBT community and welcomes anyone with an open mind. You’ll find other guests from every walk of life with a variety of interests.
