Kids' FAQ

Does your campground have a beach?

What are your bathrooms like at the campground?

Are there any activities at Old Forge Camping Resort?

There is plenty to do at the campground: swimming, horseshoes, basketball, nightly movies, boating, and fishing.

What kind of animals will we see?

There are a lot of animals that make the campground their home. You may see whitetail deer, ducks, loons, raccoons, chipmunks, squirrel, and fox. A friendly reminder that feeding the animals is not allowed and any campers found guilty of this could be fined up to $500.

Am I allowed to take branches from trees for marshmallow sticks?
