Dave's Tips

Dave's tips are currently available for only some camprounds. Unfortunately Mongaup Pond isn't one of them! Check back another time.
Mongaup Pond photos were taken in the spring on May 16, 2016. As such consider that the leaves on the trees are only about halfway out. If you are camping at Mongaup Pond in the summer, you can assume that there will be more shade and site privacy on sites that have deciduous trees.
