Hats off to the fun, outgoing, and awesome Jones Pond owners Bryan and Matt for their constant efforts to make sure your time there is a great one! Matt and Bryan are caring hosts and make sure every stay at their campground is a memorable time. They’re friendly owners and are really passionate about their campground, taking pride in their park. They are always improving facilities and infrastructure.

Along with the owners, seasonal campers take pride in the park. It is a place beloved by many. You can’t help getting a sense of family. A nice mix of men, all ages, sizes, and professional backgrounds are there. Jones Pond is more than just a campground; there is a strong sense of pride and community. For many, this is home and where their heart rests. Memorial Day weekend includes a remembrance ceremony in the Memorial Garden, harkening back for at least a moment to campers long passed.

Fantastic facilities and welcoming hosts are just the start of what is great about Jones Pond. Well maintained with constant improvements, the park is incredibly clean. Theme weekends and impromptu events held by seasonal campers make every weekend a blast. The Cadillac of campgrounds is always filled to the brim with lots of men. Friendly, family, fun, this is the one place a gay man can feel at home. It's the best ever!

Jones Pond becomes home the minute you drive in the gate. You will never be a stranger, you will return again and again. Some campers drive four hours every weekend just to enjoy this unbelievably picturesque place with an incredible atmosphere and the most beautiful grounds on earth.

The staff is always attentive, courteous, and helpful. They make everyone feel welcome and treat people like family. Every day these professionals recreate the mostly friendly place in the world for gay men.

Events are extremely well organized. You can go to just relax or take part in all the festivities. Every weekend, awesome events and block parties are full of fun activities. Entertainment is so well managed it’s like being on a weekend cruise.

Rental accommodations from bunkhouses, cabins and guesthouse to a complete rental RV are pleasant, clean, and complete. The campground, shower houses, and rental units are always clean and well maintained. The Cafe At the Pond offers a good selection of the usual and delicious food.

For a tent camper, Jones Pond is a home away from home. Awesome, outgoing, and welcoming seasonal campers create a sense of community that is a huge part of what makes this a great campground. Hands down this could be the friendliest campground; the friendliest anywhere where everyone is included in every event including free block parties sponsored and presented by each block of seasonal campers.

Jones Pond is one big family where everyone is gay. Camps are on good-sized sites, the owners will do most anything to assure you’re having a great time and seasonal campers are welcoming to everyone.

Miss the Pond and miss some of the best in gay camping.
