This is a well-maintained campground, with many amenities. However, it is extremely large and busy, and some of those amenities can get a bit overwhelmed (notably the pool, which was completely full while we were there). They were celebrating "Christmas in July" while we were there, and the kids enjoyed a free wagon ride around the campground while Christmas carols blasted from the speakers. As mentioned, the campground is very busy and seemed to be made up mostly of campers from "downstate" NY, enjoying the country. The campgrounds are actually in Warrensburg, NY, but are within an easy drive of Lake George. A fun side trip from here was visiting the Stone Bridges and Caves in Pottersville, about a 25 minute drive up the Northway. All in all, it is a nice campground, a little pricey, and not a place to go if you are looking for a lot of peace, quiet and solitude.

We really enjoyed our stay here. We lucked out with a pull-through site, corner lot, right across from the beach access, with a beautiful view of the bay. Our fellow campers were all very friendly, with an interesting mix of Americans (from as far as FL and MI) and Canadians (many from Quebec). We found the campground to be exceptionally quiet and peaceful, and our kids had a great time on the pebble beach. Beautiful sunsets also. Free buses run continuously to other points on Mt. Desert Island, notably Acadia and Bar Harbor. We drove to the top of Cadillac Mtn, and experienced the breathtaking views of the ocean all around us. We did a 2-hour lobster boat tour (the Lulu) out of Bar Harbor, pulling up some lobster traps and seeing seals near the light house. There is so much to do and see in Acadia, and the KOA was a nice home base. We'd love to come back here again some day.

This is a beautiful campground, situated right on the beach. Our site (62) was an easy walk to the beach, and we enjoyed getting up to beautiful sunsets each morning. The beach itself is very nice - clean and uncrowded. The sites are well spaced, and felt roomy. There was a nice mix of tents, trailers and motor homes. The camp store was nice also, and most of their prices seemed very reasonable. The staff were are very friendly and helpful. If you are looking for a nice camp ground, close to the beach, it would be tough to do better than this. My only demerits were the rest rooms (they should have been cleaner, and lacked any soap, towels or garbage containers), and the lack of any garbage receptacles other than the main dump station. I realize both of these are due to tight budgets, and to keep the rates reasonable. Neither was a major problem, but they were enough to keep this from being a "10".
