I've never been impressed by KOA's but it's the only game in town, so thought I would give them another try. It is a long walking distance to the national park, it's that close, but otherwise it lived up to my expectations for KOA. I think the KOA "difference" is how close you can get your awning to the next campsites slide without actually touching it, this was no exception. First impression, the fire ring was full of beer cans from the last guest, pretty much set the tone for the experience. Lot of late night drinkers, which I would not care about if they were not 3 feet away from my bedroom slide. Basic cable TV that was poor signal strength, poor Wi-Fi and a surprising number of seasonal campers. There looked to be some nicer sites, but in the "horseshoe" it's packed in as tight as you can get. I'd look around again before I would stay here. Think this one finally swore me off KOA's for good.

Really nice big pull through sites that were very wide and nicely shaded. Wi-Fi worked ok, and OTA (over the air) TV was fine. Hookup's were in good repair. They do not take credit cards, but would stay again.

This park was mostly full of seasonal/full time residents. They majority of the places were well maintained. Decent fishing in they canal, and the park is located close to major highways, Wal-Mart close by. Good cable TV, hookups in good repair, all back in sites but room to maneuver and they are nicely angled for an easy back in. Decent laundry when the last few parks had none, it was a welcome site.

This campground was primarily a seasonal or full time residential park. They do have nice pull through sites, but none of those have full hookups. Once again, found out after the fact that they offer daily honeywagon as needed. Fail on communicating that fact at reservation time. A fairly challenging back in as the sites are at a 90 degree angle, and nicely shaded. Staff was accommodating and helpful. WiFi was available at $2.00 a day, we just used the hotspot on Verizon with no problems. Hookups were in good repair, but water took all 50 foot of hose as it was located on the opposite side of the camper.

This is a really good campground. It's really centrally located to Niagara Falls, Canadian border crossing and to Buffalo. Very well laid out sites, good hookups, very level, all back in sites, but plenty of maneuver room. They had activities for the kids inclusive of the price. Really good WiFi and a nice catch and release pond to fish in. Friendly staff that were really engaged in maintenance while we were here. Would have been a 10 but for the lack of cable (for the price, good OTA though) and they very puzzling single washer and dryer. It's puzzling because they have nearly 100 sites and a pile of cabins. They have obviously put a lot of thought and planning and money into developing the place, that's why it's puzzling that they would have such an underserved laundry facility. We waited with at least 10 other folks in the line to get to the washer and dryer. Hopefully expanding the laundry will be on their list of upgrades. That notwithstanding, I would not hesitate to stay here again when visiting Niagara Falls.

I would echo the previous post about the roads, the turns were very tight and hard to swing wide with my 40 foot rig, glad for my slider hitch. I personally did not find the sites, or at least the one that I had "spacious," but there were laid out so that you had plenty of room between sites. The site we had was just wide enough for the trailer, and we had to level, but only slightly. This was a hard park to rate, on the surface, there was really no problems, they had a nice playground, pool (bring your own chair and it closes at 7pm). I felt they really catered to the seasonal crowd, as that was the majority of their business. All seasonal sites were in very nice condition and got the feeling that it was mostly weekenders as we left on Monday and seems like everyone was gone Sunday night. It was a drive to get to anything and the campground is located fairly remotely from the Finger Lakes. We were anticipating being closer to one of the lakes than we were. The downers for us were the lack of WiFi, the absence of a laundry facility and the hookups were located at the very back of the site. Apart from those, it's a well maintained campground that would benefit from adding some short term pull through sites for travelers.

Nice family run campground with some shaded and some open sites. We had a great pull through that overlooked a nice field so plenty of room for the kids to play. Very well maintained grounds, nice playground for the kids and the pool was nice (too cold for us to swim during our stay). The campground was flooded out last fall so the owners are working hard to get things back to their high standards, so saw them out working a lot. Very friendly and helpful staff. No Wi-Fi but expect that is probably in the works as they recover from their flood. Hook ups were all in good repair, and we enjoyed our stay and the very scenic drive up to Cooperstown. Close to fuel and groceries, would recommend and stay again.

Nice family owned park. Spacious pull through sites--but those sites do NOT have sewer hookups. But never fear, the owners bring the honey wagon around at least every two days or on request if you need it to clean out your tanks. No cable but really good Wi-Fi. Only mis-steps is the check in information. We had to call back up for the Wi-Fi code and didn't know about the honey-wagon till he came around. That information would have been nice to hear or be included with the rules pamphlet at check-in. Located close to the interstate, so it was convenient. Would recommend to stay there.

Rate reflects Passport America price of stay one/get one free. We stayed here only a two nights on our way south from Acadia. Very well kept facility, very friendly and helpful staff. Mostly seasonals here but nicely kept. We had a nice pull through site on a corner that was in good repair and had nice picnic table and fire ring. Would stay again and spend some more time exploring the area.

Would echo the previous post. We stayed at the short term sites. The pull-throughs are at least 100 feet long and in the open, with hookups in the center. Plenty of room between campers so you certainly are not crowded. Wi-Fi was not really fast, but was usable. Would have rated higher but the 2.50 laundry and absent cable. Very close to Acadia and Elsworth groceries/Wal-Mart. Would stay again.

Great Campground! Family owned, but very professionally kept and maintained. Super long pull throughs and very easily accessed back in sites. Facilities were immaculate and hookups all in good repair. There is a trash can at each site with daily pickup. It is easy in and out from Highway 1. Only down side is they don't take credit cards. I had to reserve with a mailed check. Really enjoyed our stay here and would recommend and stay again.

Very nice large sites, pretty shaded but not hard to get around the trees. You have to negotiate some town traffic to get into the park, but once you cross past the train station, it's very easy to get around. Verizon hotspot worked well. A gem of a park in the sense that you can enjoy the trails along the Hudson, or get on the train and be in NYC in under an hour. I would highly recommend it as a destination to visit NYC, it couldn't have been easier to get on the train and get to Grand Central. Very nice staff and a well maintained park.

Great place to enjoy Amish country. Water hookups were located on the other side of the camper, but not an impossible run with a regular hose. Nice paved pull-throughs as well as some gravel pull-throughs, majority are back in, but have plenty of maneuver room. Nice staff and centrally located. Yes, you will smell the "country", but that's why we came. I'd stay again.

Nice stay here, echo what most of the previous reviewers noted in the hills/tight turns. Nothing that was impossible or even that problematic, just be prepared. Decent price for a KOA and convenient to I-81. Sewer hookups were elevated about 14 inches above the ground that made that less than optimal, but again, not a show stopper. Friendly and helpful staff, would stay again.

Really great place to see Boston from. Hookups all in very good repair, 46 of the sites are full hookups. Laundry and Propane on site. Well maintained grounds, strong Verizon hotspot reception and good television reception. Ten minutes from Minuteman National Park, and very convenient to I-95 (about 5 minutes) It is on a very busy airfield with a good amount of jet noise (Gulfstreams/Learjets). It didn't bother us, but just be aware of it. The approach is through a very residential area, but look for the FamCamp signs and the road dead-ends into the FamCamp. It is set outside the main base, so you do not have to actually go on the base to get to the FamCamp. PX/Commissary 10 minutes away. They do not take reservations, but pride themselves in never turning anyone away. No better deal than this in the Boston area, would stay again.
