We dry camped 20 feet from the river. Beautiful location. Very few amenities. Only the most rugged RVs attempt this. On the West side, there are small roads with potholes. Mostly paved through campground. On the East side, rugged large stones and difficult to maneuver, but easier access by highway 151. Dogs need vaccination records. Bears in the area. Beautiful covered bridge (no autos) and great trout fishing. If your rig can take it, go for it. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We just returned from a four day weekend at Roscoe Campsites and I wish I could have spent a week. This is an old school (but really clean) campground. This is not a campground that is going to babysit your children. No game room, no Sunday ceramics, etc. If your children like to fish, tube, or swim in the cleanest river holes, then they will love it. There is also a playground, hiking trails, and plenty of places to ride their bikes. This is heavily populated with Fly fisherman, so please respect them when they are on the water during fly hatches. Most sites are shaded but there are a few down below that will require an awning and/or a 10 x 10 dining tent. (We were in these and we did fine). If you get hot, and the river is low, just put a chair in the water, or head up to the rock beach. The owner and his staff did everything they could to make us feel at home. What a "standup guy" this owner is! We had three families: kids ages ranged from 10 to 15, and everyone had fun. We had a 31' Travel trailer, a 39" 5th wheel, and our other friend rented one of the newer trailers onsite (a fairly new and spotless Cougar.) There is a large bathroom and shower house which was spotless. Plenty of firewood onsite, and a pretty well stocked general store with ice for sale. They also have tube rentals if needed. This is a fisherman’s heaven. If you like to fish, then stop in town for the most knowledgeable fly fisherman by far. Great fly shops, general store, and beer wine, etc., all available. There is no sewer hookups on the riverfront sites because if it were to flood, it would not be good for the river. Water and electric worked fine, and a honey truck to pump if needed. As a dog owner myself, my only complaint would be to have a leash law for the dogs. WiFi would be great as well, but I would like to see that at every campground. That would probably kill the rustic feel I suppose. We are pretty particular where we camp, and I can tell you we have already booked for next year. We are hoping to sneak back in August. We can’t wait to go back. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Park is a dump. The worst I have seen in 17 years of camping. The entry driveway is about a 8% grade narrow with potholes. The photos of the rv sites on the web site are the seasonal sites not available to short term stays.The sites for short term stay no 50 amp no sewer hookup, some of the wire for electric box hookups just a bare wire laying on the ground or nailed to trees. On one to check you in upon arrival. I saw owner a day after I arrived and complained about the park not matching website and the electric wires.Owner ask me to leave the park he also charged my credit card for a week stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Loved this campground. Tucked in a valley in the Catskill mnts, with a beautiful stream running through it. Great place.. Peaceful.. Family oriented.. Friendly people.. Great place to camp in tents. trailers or a pop up. Cute cabins too. We are going to try to visit again in the fall its gotta be gorgeous there then. We camped here in a Tent.

What I loved most about this place is, its a campground and not an RV parking lot. Its an older campground that has been family operated for over 40 years. Its very welcoming with lots of character.. The grounds are beautiful.. The people very friendly.. I loved camping along the stream.. The restrooms were older buildings but kept spotless.. Bravo to the staff.. Every year we go back and it seems they are constantly improving the grounds. I'll be back Russell Brook !!! We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Normally, I don't post reviews but saw this one and had to comment. The previous post is totally off. The camp store was always open when I was there. The staff was so nice and helpful, made you feel welcomed. The bathrooms where older buildings but kept spotless!!! So were the grounds and the pool. There were a variety of beautiful campsites for tenters, pop up and trailers. We will definitely go back. It beautiful there. To the previous poster maybe you should sell your camper and start doing the hotel thing... We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We were disappointed as we called to make sure and were told by the owner that there were hiking and biking trails nearby. The only hiking trail was very rough and at one point you had to wade across the stream to hike it. There was no biking and the fishing was very disappointing. You had to either hike the very long, rough trail or drive to the fishing spots. The store was seldom open and the campground road was extremely rough. Most of the sites seemed to be occupied by resident campers. We also had a very noisy party next to us that the owners did nothing to quiet down, although the children were loud and boisterous well into the late night hours. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an older campground showing its age. The showers and bathrooms need upgrading. The camp store was never open unless you went to the house and asked the owner to open up. The owner is quite helpful but it appears he is a little overwhelmed with maintenance. Way to many seasonals for our taste. Not bad for a couple of nights but we will not be visiting again. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
I enjoyed the park however there were way too many seasonal trailers in place, most with the best of the locations (I don't blame them) but many were 'permanent' rather than seasonal with trees growing up through the trailer tongue and decks larger than the one at the house. The owners were very hospitable and tried to make us feel at home. It was enjoyable but mention should go to the total number of seasonal customers; a bit overwhelming when trying to blend it to the camping experience! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Cooks Falls Area. Electric was 20A. Only 4 showers for the entire campground. Many seasonal campers in place; some appeared rundown. Store was never open, but owner said to go to the main house and someone would open up if supplies were needed. A few sites were pull through & full hook-up. We camped here in a camper.
Over-run by seasonals who keep their sites littered with trash. 15 amp service. They don't allow tote tanks - but will charge $8 for their dumping service. Bathroom garbage had something dying in it - was never emptied during our week-long stay. Young couple took over from father, office was never open during the week. Roscoe NY is adorable - this place is a dump. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
