Alpine Lake was once again a pleasure to visit after several years. It's kept consistently clean and updated. The kids love all the activities and the views are lovely.

Visiting Deer Run for the first time in nearly 10 years was a huge disappointment. The park is nothing what I remember, and the management seemed hostile to workers as we were checking in which basically set the tone for our experience. I don't think a dime has been spent to upgrade the facilities since the last time I camped there. The sites were fine, many large, but the bathrooms were fitlthy, the "movie house" smelled like cat urine, what used to be a cute mini-golf course is now an overgrown "dog park" and the animal farm, the previous owners had, is gone. The pools are ok, but nothings changed. Oh they did add a slide for kids - it was broken and barricaded the week we were there. My kids were crushed. I won't be returning with my family. There are better places a few miles north in the Saratoga Springs area.

Really nice campground in an area convenient to many of the Capital District activities. The sites were all nice and well maintained and the staff was really friendly.
