The Great Outdoors

There is so much to do outside when you go camping in an RV at Ponderosa Pines Family Campground. The area is full of lakes and ponds, which makes it a popular destination for fishing. Prompton State Park is one of the closest places to go fishing and boating. Prompton Lake is 290 acres and is optimal for many types of boating. Both motorized and non-motorized watercraft are allowed. This is also an excellent place to go fishing. Some species you might find include largemouth and smallmouth bass, crappie, and perch.The park also has 26 miles of hiking trails of varying difficulty levels, which are particularly popular in the fall when the leaves start to change. All of the hiking trails are also open to mountain biking. Most of the state park's land is available for deer and turkey hunting - be sure to check hunting regulations before your visit. There is an 18-hole disc golf course as well as a picnic area. During the winter, many of the trails can be used for cross-country skiing, and there are several hills that are ideal for sledding.There are also several hiking trails outside of the park that may be worth exploring. The Tanner Falls Trail in nearby Dyberry leads to a waterfall area with gorgeous views. The Lackawanna River Heritage Trailhead is also located nearby in Carbondale. Carbondale is also home to Merli Sarnoski Park, which has a lake and is a popular destination for fishing and swimming in the summer

Exploring The Area

Ponderosa Pines may be tucked away in the Poconos, but there’s still plenty to do when you book a motorhome rental in Wayne County. The campground is just outside the small town of Honesdale, which has a supermarket, gas stations, pharmacies, banks, and any other essentials you may need while you are traveling. Honesdale has a charming downtown area with plenty of places to eat, historic buildings, and small independent shops. If you’re looking to have a meal out, you’ll find a pizzeria, a Mexican restaurant, a Thai restaurant, sandwich shop, diner, tavern, and even a local brewery. Honesdale is also the terminus of the Stourbridge Line Train, which offers historic train rides through the area’s scenic countryside.The closest urban spread to the campground is the Scranton-Wilkes Barre area. Scranton is famous for being the setting of the popular TV show The Office. Nay Aug Park is a must-visit in the area - it has an art and science museum, two Olympic-sized swimming pools, and a large gorge with a lookout area and stunning waterfalls. Scranton is also home to the Steamtown National Historic Site, which is a preserved historic railroad and rail museum. Another key part of Scranton’s history is its mining past, which you can learn about at the Anthracite Heritage Museum. You can also take a tour of the historic Lackawanna Coal Mine or visit the popular ski resort and water park complex in the nearby mountains while you're here.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
