I agree with a previous reviewer: The 1 mile public road to this campground is washboard rough but if you can get by that you will be very happy with this campground. You are guided to your site by one of the owners via bicycle. The owners are great people. The grounds are immaculate and most sites are shaded by mature trees that are trimmed up. The sites are grass and, while no mats are allowed, the grass clippings are vacuumed up thus no mess carried into your rig. The RV sites are all pull-through, which makes it very convenient for departure with a toad. On the perimeter of the campground runs two 5-6 foot wide mowed grass walking trails, 1 for just people and the other for people and their dogs. The grass is vacuumed up on the dog trail and it is clean, no poo bombs to walk around. The location is a short drive into town for food, attractions, golf, places of worship. While the campground is close to I-94 the road noise isn't an issue. It is quiet at night. We would stay here again.

We stayed here for 1 night. The sites at this campground are all back-ins so a motorhome with a toad requires a disconnect. This could be an issue if you would like an early am departure the following day. We were assigned a site number but told we could choose any unoccupied site. The Wi-Fi worked well but as stated in other reviews there is no cable TV, so unless you have satellite you may pull in 5 stations with your antenna. The sites and road are a sandy loam mixture and messy when dry but worse when wet. The night we were there it rained and needless to say I had a mat outside and an old towel on the floor inside to catch the sand mixture. It is fairly close to the I-94. Also close by are a fair amount of restaurants and stores.

If there are no events going on these campsites are for rent. The Expo center is easy on/off I-94 and good for an overnight . The location is only a few miles from major shopping and restaurants. The electric sites are 20 amp so you have to decide what you need on. If you have pets there is plenty of room to walk and trash cans to dispose of waste. There is also a walking trail with an honor pay station. Very quiet at night.

What a gem. At first I was hesitant when I saw it was close to the water treatment plant, route 41 in view and railroad tracks but I have to say none of it affects this park. Daytime there is some road noise from 41 but at night it is quiet. There was 1 train and that was all we heard in early evening. We requested a pull-thru site and it overlooks the river which is a pleasant view as am boaters fish. The park is very clean with a section to walk your dogs & 2 dumpsters at opposite ends to dispose of waste. There is no cable so for us TV reception is not good. We have an old TV with digital booster and were only able to pull in 1 station so far. Will ask other campers what they have and how many channels. The Wifi is good. If I wanted to be picky the only issue is the geese and large amount of waste they leave behind all over the road. The park staff are doing what they can to discourage the geese with cutouts of wood dogs but the geese have figured it out and thrive. They will leave if they see you walking a dog. We would stay here again.

It is easy on/off M35. While park lacks sewer and cable it makes up for with a park setting and no road noise. We requested a pull thru site close to the office for good Wifi and I have to say this is the best Wifi connection in all the parks we have stayed at. There are a few rigs that appeared to be there for a while but the park is clean and a great place to walk pets. There is also a free disc golf course on the property along with a playground. The sites are spaced apart so there is no problem opening slides etc..We would stay here again.

The Bridge and Island sites are very close together and unfortunately we were there when these flying bugs called Midges or Fish Flies had hatched and every vehicle was covered by these things. The campground is clean and many roads to walk around. My complaint is they say they are dog friendly BUT there is a lawn in front of this section clearly stating dogs are to be walked on the road, not grass. How many dogs do bathroom duties on a road? While geese run & poop all over lawn dogs cannot poop & owners clean up. Also all the metal cans placed along park roads are for ashes only with the only garbage area near the office at the entry. When I make reservations I state we are traveling without canine child who stays in the motorhome with music on. After check in under rules on paperwork it state do not leave dogs unattended at your campsite or in an rv followed by a list of local kennels! Needless to say we ignored the grass bit by walking her on the edge and left her in our motorhome while doing short day tours during our stay. I can understand if we have a non stop barker but this is not what I consider pet friendly. They do not have a pet run either. We would not stay here again due to this issue.

We have a 35.5 foot motorhome towing a small car and had no problems getting into and out of the campground. We opted for a back in 30 amp site to have cable TV. The Wi-Fi was very good. The park is very clean with plenty of room to walk pets. It is close to town and the Fortress golf course. 20 minutes to Prime Outlets. The only downside is the sites are very close together and if you are there during a busy time you will have rigs all around you. Look at the site map and pick your site carefully if this is the case.

The rate cited is Canadian dollars, after a Good Sam discount. Park is clean, restrooms are immaculate when I looked in but did not use. Since there is no cable TV. We were able to only pull in 5 channels, a Japanese language channel, cartoon channel and 3 others that were not that great. I have Wi-Fi on my laptop and was not able to go online no matter what I did. Kept getting the message "Wireless network connection doesn't have a valid IP configuration". I went to the office and woman had no idea how to solve the problem. This park is good for easy on/off hwy but for the price I expect better services. You do have road noise. At our site was a fire ring that was below ground so that could be a hazard for someone not aware of its location.

It is easy on/off the NYS Thruway for a night but I would not make it a destination point. The sites are on grass. To get to the pull-through sites you have to go up a short very steep hill and I believe there are about 3 of these site. The front of your rig faces the thruway, which is about 200 feet in front. Yes, there is road noise but we were able to get to sleep. They offer no discounts. There is plenty of room to walk a dog but the only container to dispose of the waste is down near the office.

It is easy on/off interstate but beware, you are staying a football field length from a truck stop where you will go to bed hearing idling trucks and wake up to idling trucks. The upper level gets the interstate noise. The wifi worked well until truck parking lot filled then it slowed. Put tv antenna up and pulled in only 3 stations with lousy reception so forgot about it. Half the camping slots seem to be filled with permanent residents. The middle tier has 6 camping slots in a 1/4 moon shape and only 2 could accommodate a large rig towing or fifth wheel with the rest too small to allow turning around to exit. Our take is the owners used the land the only way they could, turn it into a 3 tier campground. This is the second time we camped here and the last. For $37 with discount it is overpriced and in December we will camp in another campground when we head south.

Rate is after KOA discount. The positive is people great, clean park and good pull thru site. Now the negatives: to reach this campground you travel 7 long miles through a busy commercial area and the turn to reach this property downright dangerous. As you wait to make a left hand turn vehicles are flying down this hill and this is what you have to deal with when you are leaving. No we will not be staying here again.

This is after the KOA discount. No, it is NOT an easy on/off I-81. The 4 miles is a slow drive on a narrow country road. We will not stop here again. The people were great, grounds clean but it is too difficult to get to for an overnight stay. We had a pull thru site for a 36' motorhome with a small car in tow.

The rate is after the military discount. This KOA is not directly off I-81 and you have to travel on some narrow country roads. Going into the property is off a curve in the road and down a short steep entrance. In the campground itself there are two roads to exit the sites with one being very short and steep so you need to decide which exit your rig can handle. The people at this KOA are very helpful and the grounds are kept clean. The Wi-Fi worked great and we would stay here again. We have a 36' RV with a small tow car.

This is an easy on/off of I-75 and we would stay again.The rate is after the KOA discount. The Internet worked early on but as more rigs setup for the night the service became bogged down. We had a front row pull-through site, which is great when traveling with pets and easy to get out of. Now the downside to this front row is the bright lights from the pole lights. If you are an early to bed person and need dark then I suggest you made some type of insert for your windows to block out the light. 2007 I made some for our trip to Alaska and used them here. The lights were still on after 11PM. We have a 36' rig with a small car in tow.

This park was easy to get to from interstate. Main campground has plenty of trees for shade while the seven pull-through sites across the quiet road are mostly in the sun. There are well kept rental trailers between the recreation area and campground with a paved path that goes between the trailers down to the recreation area. Between the office and the road is a small in-ground pool and down by the lake are two fishing piers, the beach and picnic grounds. Very nice the way it is laid out. I think there are boats you can use. Not sure if you have to rent. We plan to stay here on our return trip.
