We stayed here over the Memorial Day weekend. The camp was packed and had many activities to do. The grounds were well kept and the staff very friendly. Some sights need some extra boards for leveling. A nice quiet area (most of the time). There is a pond for waterfront camping and Wi-Fi is available. This is a nice place to get away from everything for a weekend.

What a nice park. The bathrooms and shower houses were clean. The staff was very friendly. The quiet hours were quiet. There were plenty of activities to keep the kids busy. The sites were not too un-level (I was worried after reading some reviews). Overall this was a very nice park. My only negative is the price ($45.00). Our son really enjoyed our weekend and will visit again.

Our first experience, here, was the very friendly staff. As the weekend went on they proved to be very nice and courteous. Shortly after we arrived at our sites. They were very un-level and had some low branches. There was also garbage still in our site, which shows that they do not inspect the sites in between campers. After backing in we noticed that in order to reach the 30 amp electric, without a 20 amp extension cord, we had to move so that our awning would be right over our fire ring (this one is partially my fault for not wanting to buy a 30 amp extension cord). That night there was constant traffic, from both vehicles and people. The 5 mph speed limit is not even remotely enforced. The next day we had a chance to look around. Some of the seasonals were very un-kept and cluttered. There were many activities to keep the kids busy. There are tennis courts, a lake to swim in, baseball field, peddle cars, mini-golf, etc. Overall this was an ok campground. Nothing fancy, but some of the nicest staff that we have encountered.

This is a nice campground. Nothing fancy, but a good partially quiet campground (they had a band play, during the day, that was really loud). This was the 2nd time I have camped here. The sites are huge. The scenery is awesome. The camp store has nothing. The outhouses are the dirtiest I have ever seen. I would not camp here if not for the built in bathroom of my TT. Overall this is a nice (not fancy) campground. It is worth a visit is you just want a few days away from civilization.

Pope Haven was a very nice, quiet campground. We really enjoyed our stay there. We were with a group of about 40 campers and had a whole section reserved. The rest of the campground was a mix of open and wooded. It is a beautiful camp. The owner tried his best to help out in any way possible. He drove around many times during the day to make sure everything was OK. My main negative is that the bathrooms were not very clean. Luckily I only had to visit them as we left camp. We liked this campground so much that we reserved for next Memorial Day. We will also visit again, this summer.

This campground seemed like a tourist trap. There were many activities, but everything was expensive. One example is that there was a ceramic craft that cost about $10 for my child to do. The campsite has many sites. The one I was given was on a very narrow road that was hard to maneuver on. There were also many low branches and many trees in my site. I have decided that I will not go back here because all of the other campgrounds I have stayed at are superior.

My family really enjoyed our stay, at this campground. My only negative, for the whole experience, was that there was no fire ring or picnic table available (do to expanding their campsite). A few of their many positives were: location (right across the road from the diamond mines), the very friendly staff, very kid friendly, and very clean. I would highly recommend visiting the Herkimer KOA in Herkimer, NY.
