Wooded area with reasonable roads, not a lot of asphalt mostly dirt and gravel but reasonable. Large place with a couple of pools, lots for the kids to do and clean laundry. Arcade for the kids and lots of games etc. Nice staff. No frills lots of kids but no bother. We had electric, water, cable (no sewer) all hookups good. Used Verizon wireless cell and wifi worked great. Just dirt and grass level sites but not bad. We only were passing thru - no reason to go back but if you need a place in the area it is fine. Convenient enough to Saratoga race track and Lake George but 20-30 minute drive to both. Easy to get to etc. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Ok place with lots of seasonals sites, some a little shabby. Site size for the remaining sites real small and just grass and dirt that turns into mud if it rains. Lots of huge trees that should be trimmed. Hook ups ok and cable TV in some sections with lots of channels but no Wi-Fi at the sites. At the time of year I stayed, it was real laid back during the week but the weekends get busy. Was still quiet except the traffic noise from I-87. Close by to shopping and attractions but things in the limited store outrageously priced, $3.25 for a very small bag of ice. The place has potential but the sites are too close together and a little claustrophobic for us. It will take lots of $$$ to get this place to the caliber of the other places near by. Race weekends must be real busy and more hectic. Registration a little difficult as you are talking to someone not at that campground. Some of the restrooms and showers need updating but others are in good shape. Nice playground for the kids. Price of $20 a night and location was what attracted me here and and would return but there are lots of other quieter campground/RV parks close by that are nicer but more $$$. Dump station is on a grade and a little difficult to get to with the one way roads in the campground. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A little disappointed that the Race day events were nothing more than showing the race on a big screen that you could barely see. We are Nascar fans and were all excited for our trip. Ended up just watching the race inside our cabin. We camped here in a Campground Cabin.
This park is owned by an RV park corporation, and now has a Nascar theme. Reservations booked through a central booking office and not from the campground. We came on a Monday for one night. Booked for electric and water only and was told that the site did not have cable TV. When we arrived our site did have cable TV. This is probably a disconnect with the campground itself and the booking people. Our section had large nice treed spaces but no concrete pad and the site itself was dirt. Leveling necessary. Showers were clean but but need some updating. I'm sure Nascar race days are a zoo here as they have a jumbo screen for viewing the race and promote tailgate parties. It seems like with the big pool they have and the activities it might be good for families with an interest in Nascar. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was a well maintained campground with an extremely helpful, courteous staff. I reserved 3 cabins & 3 full hooks sites 7 months in advance for a family gathering. When I arrived upon check-in, I was told the sites we reserved became "seasonal" and we were placed in different parts of the campground. After protesting, the staff was able to move 2 sites closer to the cabins. However, site #A6 was more like a parking spot than a site. There was no room for a fire ring, and the entrance of my front door was on the road. All the river front sites were taken by the seasonals. If I was to return I would confirm my reservations and not book site#A6. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a busy RV park in New York, which means the campsites are close to each other, and you better like your neighbors. Many folks rent their space for the season and leave the RV on site. We enjoyed ourselves, and everyone was pleasant. The staff was friendly and helpful. We decided to have full hookups which meant a smaller campsite. Later on we decided a campsite without sewer would have suited us better with more room and not so crowded. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Well maintained campground with very nice bathrooms that were spotless. Staff were friendly and manager went above and beyond driving us around to show us sites that were available. We had a great experience camping at Adirondack Gateway and look forward to going back! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice park, but it seems that the seasonals get every good site. There are plenty of water and electric sites, but the full hook-up sites are small and right on top of each other. The pool was nice but chilly. The bathrooms were the best I have ever seen at a campground. The staff was friendly. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
During Labor Day my family was forced from a campground in Mass. We were so lucky to find this place. It is under new management. The staff were so helpful and very polite. Their goal is to please and they certainly did that. The campground is located between Saratoga and Lake George. I have never seen a cleaner park, starting with the bathrooms. On Monday night the manager made her rounds to every site that had a campfire and said thanks. That means allot to us. There were lots of activities for both kids and adults. We will be returning. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Staff was rude and acted annoyed to be bothered. No one would show me to site because it was so late she said-7:30pm. Had to sign a release in case I got hurt. Site was level nestled with seasonal campers and barking dogs. Ice cream truck with an annoying song moves throughout the campground. Place is crowded and poorly laid out with dead end roads. Electrical for 30 amp had an open ground. 20 amp was correctly wired and used it with an adapter but only provided 117 volts. Music blared after 10pm from nearby campsite. If it wasn't so late I would have gone elsewhere. I would not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Negatives: Bathrooms were not swept out, with rather dirty facilities & shower heads need to be updated. They were very far from pull through sites, which we occupied. We could hear traffic from I87. The water pressure very low! No Wi-Fi at sites, only office hot-spots. Positives: Grounds were clean. Hook-up great & convenient to trailer. Free daily local newspaper. The staff friendly & helpful. We were escorted to our site. There is a trucker restaurant & gas station down the road a piece. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We reserved a site 6 weeks ago because of our size, and had a written confirmation. They put a 24' trailer in the site and had no other sites big enough. We spent the night at Wal-Mart, then found another campground the next day. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
1 50 amp pull thru and 4 30 amp pull thru's were usable by our rig. Mostly seasonal. We couldn't clear the trees in the main section. Had to change water filter once a week. Electric was very good on 50 amps, had to use Autoformer on 30 amp. There is all new wiring in the main campground. Water pressure is low (30 PSI). Overall this is a good campground. We will be here 5 weeks. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice, quiet park. The owners and the staff are very helpful. The camp definitely caters to it's seasonals, but the sites are very large and well maintained. Many of the sites are landscaped. The pool is clean and well maintained. The camp store is almost non-existant, but there is a convenience store about 5 minutes outside of camp. Lots of fun for little ones, but teens may find it boring. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We used this lovely park as a two-day stopover on our way further north. Sites are very large, well-spaced, wooded, fairly level and clean. The bathhouse in Loop A is new and very nice. Tall rigs could have trouble with low-hanging branches, but we are 13'7" with kayaks on the roof and we were fine. This park is very popular - the beach was packed and most picnic tables and pavilions were taken. There is a nice snack bar, playground and gift/supplies shop at the beach area, which is a decent walk/bike/drive from the campsites. We enjoyed riding our bikes around; it's hilly but doable. We saw people fishing, kayaking and canoeing on the lake, as well as swimming (with lifeguards, but they do state they may not always be able to supply guards and therefore may have to close the swimming area). If you want to purchase firewood at the park, get there early, as they had run out before dark both nights we checked. Easy to find, just off I-87, and a nice quiet campground (away from the beach area). We would stay here again. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
What a spectacular park, easy access from I-87 and the cleanest restrooms we have encountered, built just 2 years ago and very well maintained. Beautiful sandy beach. Camp sites are well spaced. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was our first RV Park stay with our new fifth wheel and we really enjoyed the park. In past reviews we read about bad roads throughout the park but did not have that experience. The roads were great throughout the park we had no issue going through. We had a pull-through site and all hookups were very easy and worked well. The park was nice and quiet and we had trailers all around us. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Overall its an OK park. I talked to several people while there. This park is "very quiet" (too quiet.) They state that it's family friendly. There are NO activities what so ever. Their playground only has a swingset and a playset. Bathrooms need repair. The pool was clean and useable. Potholes are terrible, and there are many of them. Big enough to knock an alignment out. I mentioned this and was told it makes people drive slower. I couldn't use more than 3 things as it will pop the breaker. Lots are not leveled at all, and there are too many pine trees and dead limbs in almost every site that was available. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

The only good things I can say about this park are that it was easy to get in and out and the staff was helpful and friendly. The Wi-Fi only worked in the office. My motorhome kept kicking the electricity off all night, I assume because of low voltage. The site was sandy and sand tracked inside a lot. It was quiet when we stayed here at the end off September We camped here in a Motorhome.
Wi-Fi at laundry only. $45 is the 50 amp rate which we were charged though we are a 30 amp unit. Front desk assigned us a 50 amp only site so we got a new assignment. This is a long time family owned place with mainly seasonal or year around campers. Overnighters are few and camp without shade but close to bathhouse. Very quiet. Train did not bother us. Very good firewood supply and quality. Water connection leaked badly. Bathhouse uses a key and the shower was great. A sticky, clay type sand had been hauled in for site fill, but site still not level. Pot hole crew working on long neglected road leading beyond where we camped. We would not camp here again because of sand, 1 water connection, and front desk staff. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Large park, almost entirely seasonals. If you have a large rig and are staying only a few days, make sure they put you in the transient spots behind the office. We were not able to get into the first site we were assigned to, but did fine in the transient spot. Cable is good, had to go to the laundry room to use Wi-Fi. Roads are pot-holed, but they are working on them. Nice pool. Laundry is good. Bathrooms have coin-operated showers. Office staff is responsive to problems and very helpful. Nice bicycling around park and access to trails and fire roads. Very quiet at night. A bit of a drive to stores and restaurants. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We spent four months here on a monthly rate. We liked it so much we signed up for the season in 2012. The front section of the park is where most of the transients, weekenders, and short term stays are. This is close to restrooms, laundry, and pool and within range of the Wi-Fi. I used to come down on a weekday morning, do the laundry and work on my computer in the laundry room while the machines ran. The "back loop" is where the seasonals are. Lots of rigs that never move. We were back in the loop. We asked for full tree cover, since I was concerned that if it got really hot over the summer, I didn't want the trailer A/C to labor. We wound up so far into the trees that my satellite radio stopped working! I loved it. Was like camping on the forest moon of Endor. Owners are polite, helpful and friendly. On the downside, the roads are pretty badly potholed. They tried filling some of the holes back in May, but by August, the place was still like driving in a war-zone. There is indeed an active railroad, but it's off in the distance, and all you hear is the mournful horn as they blow for the crossing in Gansevoort. I thought it added to the charm. We weathered Hurricane Irene very well. There were a few mud puddles on the roads, but no sites or facilities were flooded. We had 30 amp service, water, sewer and free cable TV. We were too far away to get the Wi-Fi reliably. I called Time Warner, and they sold me cable internet for the four months we were there. The park is 8 miles north of I-87, exit 15, where you'll find a mall, groceries, restaurants, fast food, diesel and gas, etc. Even a synagogue! Beyond that is Saratoga, and, during it's season, the race track. If you're not into racing, the August thru Labor-Day racing season tends to fill up campgrounds, restaurants and motels, drive prices up, etc. The park is also 8 miles south of South Glens Falls and we tended to shop and eat in GF during the racing season. Finally, the park is 10 miles from Schuylerville, which will yield several more dining choices. Gansevoort itself has the ubiquitous Stewarts shop, a post office, a flag shop (?!?) and that's about it. We found no restaurants in Gansevoort. (The locals call it Gans-vert.) Lots of things to do here. Racing, of course. Lake George is less than an hour north. There is a cruise on the Hudson River that leaves from Lock Number 5 in Schulerville, though we never managed to take it. Albany is 30 miles south. You could visit the state capital. (Or not.) All in all, we loved it. The area is gorgeous, the park met all our needs, and we'll be back on site 121 next summer. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Every site is W/S/E only. Campground is between a railroad ( active through the night) and a busy road on the other side. Quite a few seasonals. No discounted W/E sites available. 39 dollars is alot of money to pay for a campground that doesn't have level sites. My graded stone back in was off 5 inches from level. Judging from other parked motorhomes, this is prevalent throughout the campground. Bathroom and shower are in one room. Although the female shower and curtain and bathroom area were clean, the mens was awful. The shower curtain in the mens area was something you should touch only with rubber gloves. There was no place to get dressed in private in either of the showers/restrooms. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park used to be an animal preserve so the roads to camp sites are extremely windy. Also the sites are not well marked and campground map leaves a lot to be desired. You might be at least a half mile away from the pool. Lots of bugs at night. The campground is very quiet and in a great location. We will return in the fall. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is quiet and that's it. The pool is open only at the whim of the owner with no set hours. There is little for the children to do and it's listed as a family campground. The sites are no where near level, it took 6 blocks to get level. The roads are full of pot holes and the lawn was not cut the week I was there. The cable TV was not working and no refund was offered. The showers had mold on them and there was no outside light near the doors so you could see to unlock them. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
