By far the worst "camping" trip I've ever experienced. I was supposed to spend 3 days at Skinners Falls Campground in Narrowsburg, owned and operated by Landers River Trips, but left after one night completely unimpressed...no, pissed off.

First of all the clientele is 95% Latino...which normally who cares they're good people...but I've now learned that the Latino idea of "camping" is to blast salsa dance music all night long, and the Landers staff is too worthless to do anything about it. The obnoxiousness wasn't from one or two sites, it was actually coming from 10 or 11 sites spread across the entire campground, to the point where the fiesta became stereo. Who brings professional-grade speakers when "camping" and doesn't shut it off when asked at 3 am, 4 am, 5 am, 6 am, 7 am, and 8 am? And then in the morning all the senoritas go to the disgusting campground facilities to re-apply their makeup, at which point the music starts again at 11 am. EVERY THIRD PERSON HAD A VUVUZELA. Yes that's right. Personally when I go camping I like to be in nature and not feel like I'm at a Columbian World Cup pep rally. I actually would have liked to hear others talking around our fire, or the sounds of the Delaware river next to us, or even my drunk buddy snoring the next tent over...anything but salsa music.

When rafting the next day several other rafters laughed at our group for staying there, saying "oh yeah, you didn't know Skinners Falls has that reputation"? Apparently not.

OK so even if you don't let rude and obnoxious "clientele" ruin your trip, how about the Landers River Trips staff? We complained 5 times throughout the first night...and the staff did nothing. The manager actually said "what do you want me to do? I told them once to be quiet, what else can I possibly do?" Umm...maybe have better control over your own campground? Or institute a "no blaring salsa dance music after 3 am" rule?

I'm mad at myself for not doing the proper research and finding a decent campground where sites aren't right on top of each other and whose reputation isn't as bad as this.

Disgusting facilities + rude and worthless staff + all night Latino fiesta = NOT CAMPING.

(Unless you're into that sort of thing...then go for it...)

Lander's River Trips is my favorite place to go in the summer. The staff is very pleasent. Lots of people camp, raft, canoe, kayak,and tube, and it is very relaxing to float on the wonderful Delaware River. I don't know what this world would be like without Lander's River Trips.
