Tri-State RV Park – Matamoras PA

RATING: ♦♦♦
  • Length of stay: 1 day
  • Cost per night: $41.00
  • Discount: None
  • Hook ups: 50 amp electric, water, and sewer. New electric pedestals.
  • Site number/quality: #K. Gravel and dirt pad. Very level.
  • Park quality: Great location for travelers passing through on I-84 in the PA-NY line. It’s on the frontage road right off the expressway, which of course makes it a little noisy. The park itself is directly on the Delaware River and the riverfront is quite pretty. However, the campsites are not on the river. Instead, they are on what is essentially a large gravel parking lot next to the highway facing away from the river.
  • Access: Easy access off I-84 on frontage road.
  • Connectivity: Verizon weak, Cricket/AT&T OK with antenna, T-Mobile OK.
  • Return yes/no?: Only if necessary.
  • Notes: Just passing through the area. Very convenient overnight location. The park is called “Tri-State” because it is located where Pennsylvania, New York, and New Jersey meet. On the opposite bank of the river from the campground is the Tri States Monument. It was placed in 1882 to mark the meeting spot of the three states (though the exact tri-point is mid-river). Some people like to stand on the rock monument in order to be in three states at once. Technically called a trifinium, it is one of only 39 such tri-points in the country. There is only one point in the country where four states meet, the famous Four Corners quadrafinium that joins Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah.
