The Woods must be popular. Even though the owners didn’t promote the poll to its members it still made this year's list. Drawing from New York City, Philadelphia, and the Baltimore, Washington area, The Woods apparently has a large enough following that it needs. Regardless, enough respondents completed the survey to land The Woods at No. 7 on the Favorite Gay Campgrounds in North America list.

Those respondents had a great deal to say about their summer paradise in the Poconos. The Woods is one of the cleanest and best run campgrounds in the U.S. They love it there. The property is very well organized with excellent theme parties. Drawing from several major metropolitan areas, the demographic is diverse with a certain lean toward younger, primarily college-age men. Camp staff is welcoming, friendly, and competent, delivering a great place to relax and be you. It is a fun friendly place with a relaxed atmosphere.

Located in an area of several gay campgrounds, The Woods stands out as the premier property of the group. Nearby, Hillside Campgrounds, Oneida Campground, and Lodge round out the others.
