We arrived a bit early and felt unwelcomed by the lady at the front desk who seemed furious that we would dare to do so! She did begrudgingly requested that someone check to see if our site was empty, which it was. In fact, there was hardly anyone in the back part of the campground where our site was located. Other than the undesirable reception, the rest of our stay was pleasant. All hookups worked perfectly, as did the cable. The Wi-Fi signal was not constant. The bathhouse (Restroom #1) in our area was immaculate, showers strong, hot and the washer and dryer were efficient. It’s a heavily wooded setting with a dirt surface. I’m not sure I’d want to be there in the rain, as I expect it might be a sea of mud. We didn’t use the pool, eat in the snack bar or participate in the many advertised activities, but others looked as if they were having an enjoyable time. It’s a great spot for exploring this beautiful area of the Adirondacks. A trip to the town of Lake Placid is a must, as is a visit to the site of the 1980 Winter Olympics, and a drive up Whiteface Mountain. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Fantastic campground close to all there is to do in the Lake Placid area. The only negative was the location of our deluxe patio site. It is at the entrance to campground so you have a steady stream of cars passing 20 yards from the patio. Also, the immediate view is of the office and the dumpsters in the distance. One morning a staff member cleaned the road using a blower and completely covered our camper and breakfast in dirt. If they moved the patio sites to the rear of the campground it would be much better. We got to meet the Olympic bobsled and skeleton team there and the other events were well run and entertaining. Wi-Fi worked perfect. We will be back. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Great location with an easy drive. The roads can be very narrow at times along with the sites. All sites are dirt and many flood when it rains. We first arrived while it was raining to find our site underwater. Asked at office and luckily were able to move. Be aware that the rows to the front of campground are larger and less prone to flooding. My first impression was not good. It is also confusing how to drive around the campground as I went the wrong way. Again it was pouring and very crowded. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is by far the best campground in the Lake Placid area, and the best in the ADK mountains. Its initial appearance when you first enter is breathtaking. The lodge is a beautiful large 2 story log built building that hosts the camp store, registration office, adult lounge, laundry, novelty store, breakfast kitchen, and a dining room. The staff is very friendly and professional and will do what it takes to make you feel like family. There is also a beautiful clean pool and game room along with a snack bar on the property. This KOA is a recent corporate purchase and undergoing major changes. Most sites are shaded and level and it is truly a big rig friendly park. There are some new premium sites with concrete patios also. The new management is what makes this park an A+. There are cottage rentals available as well as tent sites. KOA has great plans for this park and it will only get better. We will come here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A true Adirondack adventure awaits. Beautiful park and so much to do. Great nature walks and tons of activities available. Movie nights and ice cream social were a hit, and breakfast. Feel a bit nickel and dimed with needing to pay extra for some activities but at least they have much to offer. Bring your tennis rackets, basketball and hiking shoes! Very spacious sites. Would definitely come again and recommend. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The drive to this park in a big rig is very doable and it is a great location for exploring the Adirondacks. Within the park are 4 long rows of 50 amp full hookup with cable sites that will accommodate large rigs, some are gravel most are dirt, but all look level. We were given a site on row C, which faces the tent and cabin area. This row is nice for a class A because you’re not looking right at another RV, but into a wooded area and if you are really lucky you might even get a spot of sky for your satellite dish. but the whole park is very wooded so don’t be disappointed. The road around the park is hard packed gravel with some large pines close to the edge, but nothing that can’t be easily navigated in a 40 ft class A or 40ft 5th wheel. Sprint does not provide service in this area, but the free park WI-FI worked just fine from our campsite. Bathrooms are well maintained and staff was friendly and accommodating. This park sits next to the Ausable River and there are walking trails that go a beautiful flume waterfall, a must if you stay here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice KOA in a REALLY nice location. We actually stayed in two different sites because I decided to get there a day earlier than originally planned. It was Ironman weekend in Lake Placid so they were pretty full. In fact, when I first tried to reserve they WERE full so I asked to be wait-listed. I got a prompt call when a spot opened. The sites were big, clean, and level. The facilities seemed very nice and clean. The things that keep it from being a 10 are that the road has 3 "humps" that I would classify as ditches dug for drainage. These really need steel plates or something over them. We actually bottomed out our car on one of these and I had to spend a half hour fixing a couple things. There was also no flexibility in checking out late. I was worried about getting back in time Monday morning to leave by 11:00 and other KOAs will offer late checkout for a couple bucks an hour. No such luck here. I found the Wi-Fi to work very well. There were two wireless networks and when one didn't work. I switched to the other and really had no issues. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great campground on the Ausable River. Close to a ton of fun activities for all ages. All sites are shaded with plenty of trees, but sites where roomy and not on top of one another. Clean facilities. Only reason I did not give it a 10 was the WiFi. You had to log on every hour and speeds where slow. It's an annoyance that shouldn't be in this day and age. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a very nice campground! The entire campground is in the forest making for lots of shade. Although the roads are dirt/gravel, there was not a lot of dust or mud when it rained. The setting is quiet and very relaxing. There are plenty of hiking trails nearby and the Ausable river is within walking distance from the campground. The staff was friendly and helpful. We would stay here again since it was close to Lake Placid and other activities in the Adirondack's. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped here for 2 weeks. We have been going for the past few years. EXCELLENT campground with very friendly staff. Clean environment, great quiet location and large sites. Has a snack and breakfast bar on location. Highly recommend this place. We will go whenever we are in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a simply wonderful campground! Wooded yet the sites are wide, spacious enough accommodate wide rigs with multiple slides and separated from one another for some privacy. Despite the fact that there are many children around, it is remarkably quite. The staff is friendly and maintains a neat and very clean campground. Strong Wi-Fi signals. There is also great walking trail along the Ausable River. Finally, it is conveniently located near Lake Placid, Whiteface Mountain, and the High Peaks area of the Adirondacks. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is our third time staying at this campground. We have to downgrade it only because the staff is so deadpan. Someone needs to give these people a peptalk and some people skills. Campground is fine, roads could use some work though. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice, busy, but quiet campground. We were in a premium site which was near the office/lodge and near the pool, game room and snack bar. The site was pull-through and very level. They have a nice dog trail and park and there are trails along the Ausable River. The campground is very close to Whiteface Mountain Ski area and Veterans Hwy which takes you to the summit of Whiteface Mt. Lake Placid is not too far as well. Check-in was quick, the staff was efficient, not as friendly as other places we've been. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very wooded, level, and generally well run. Sand at the site wasn't a big problem; we just swept the floor more often. Nice dog path. Excellent cable TV. We had a site near the office, because we requested good Wi-Fi. The signal was usually strong, but it was disconnected frequently. That's my major beef. If the Wi-Fi had been better, I'd have given this place a 10. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Park was a nice setting, but the sand was terrible. Every site that I saw was sand, had to clean air conditioner filter as when we left it was black. Pool was nice, most sites were big and well treed. Very close to Placid and attractions. Park was very quiet. Wi-Fi, and cable TV were good. Nice park except for the sand! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park has about everything except paved roads, paved camp sites and grass at the sites. The roads could use grading and some additional grave as could the sites. The sites are spacious and treed. The park is very quiet. It must get busy some time because there are lots of sites and cabins but it is mostly empty tonight. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This may be the best KOA we've ever stayed in. A pretty forest setting like a state park, very clean showers, laundry, and helpful friendly owners. Great location for exploring the Adirondacks. Highly recommended! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a lovely RV park; sites well spaced, about 25 feet between sites. Mostly pull throughs, a few back ins around the perimeter which afford a little more privacy. High cost RV parks seem to be the norm in the Lake Placid area. We found many things to do and see, kept extending our stay to do more. Area restaurants are mostly very good. Recycling for cans, glass, plastic, but not for paper. They have had occasional transient bear problems here, have installed electric fence around the dumpsters. We were here two weeks, saw no bear activity. Good laundry facilities. We would come here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Despite a small issue described later, we felt that this was a great campground. The grounds were clean and the staff was friendly. There is a nice pool with a play area for kids that seemed well maintained. The bathrooms were impeccable. The campground features mostly shaded sites by large mature trees. We hiked our way to the Ausable River to find a gorgeous view of the river. Many kids were cliff diving into the water. Didn't seem safe to us, but the kids were sure having a great time. Our ONLY real disappointment is that we were located near an area of the campground that was being upgraded. For the entire weekend, we had to hear and smell the diesel fueled tractor dig trenches. What could have been a peaceful sojourn ended up being nerve wracking. Upon our return, we sent an e-mail to the owners to complain that they should at least perform these activities either pre-season or during the week. They were very apologetic and compensated us for our troubles. Nevertheless, we recommend this campground and would return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The campground is clean with large sites and well-defined roads. Personnel are courteous, friendly, and helpful. Store is very good. The proximity to Whiteface Mountain provides spectacular views a very short distance away. We had a very pleasant time. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Rate reflects KOA discount. Some will complain that the roads aren't paved, but the campground reflects the Adirondack Mts. Very quiet first week in May and it snowed on Mother's Day! Had good WiFi. Fair amount of upgrades being made, with more sites having sewer installed. Camp hosts from Oregon were very friendly and helpful. We had a problem with a slide our first night but were given the name of Tom's RV Repair. Great guy and will come on a moment's notice. He is also the only one in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have tent camped here several times over the years and just love it. We can't wait to stay there in our travel trailer. It's very shady, quiet and cool. The facilities are excellent, the store is well-stocked, it's very central to so many activities in the Adirondack region. There are hiking trails along the Ausable River that border some beautiful falls and a gorge. The "back end" of the trail borders private property, so pay attention to the signs that direct you up and back to the campground. This is a place you'll want to return to visit, time and again, as we have. We camped here in a Tent.
We came here last year and liked it so much that we came back again, driving 13 hours to be here. There is excellent access to beautiful hiking and mountain biking trails. The campground soil is sandy, as others have mentioned, but that is how the soil is here. Having an outdoor rug helped keep things neater as well as taking care to remove footwear before entering the camper. There is plenty for children to do when not "out and about" with the family. Our kids greatly enjoyed the pool, game room, playground and the movie shown on Thursday night in the lodge. We were totally comfortable letting them roam about the campground on their bikes or on foot. It is very family-friendly. The Wi-Fi would occasionally boot us off for no apparent reason, and I can't believe it's because we were using too much bandwidth. That's my only critique: and I wasn't here for the Wi-Fi, anyway. However, it would have been nice to be able to upload a few more photos to our online album so the family back home could see how much fun we were having here. It's a great campground and if we lived closer, we would probably come every year. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.

This is the nicest KOA we have stayed in; in fact one of the nicest campgrounds we have stayed in. Nice pull through sites and lots of amenities. The dog walk and dog park is the best ever; if you have pets it's a must stay. Lots to do in the area and Lake Placid is very pet friendly as are the hiking trails. While there visit Jake Placid's Doghouse! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The office was beyond rude and unhelpful. The campgrounds were sandy, which tracked into the camper constantly no matter what you did. Security went around and left notes on people's doors constantly about ridiculous violations. Seemed like security was around to enforce petty rules and not to protect campers. It was like they were doing you a favor allowing you to stay here and were not very welcoming at all. They overcharged (quadruple charged) for toiletries and snacks in the convenience store. LOOKS ARE DECEIVING. DO NOT STAY HERE! We camped here in a Motorhome.

Stayed for one week and although nice the sandy dirt ground cover was a mess when it rained. Most sites have a lot of space and the big rig sites are very good. Would camp here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We very rarely camp at a KOA as they are usually over priced and sites are close together. However, this park had good reviews and has won several awards from the KOA Corporation. Unfortunately, we had a horrible experience here. The site we were assigned was extremely slanted. When we inquired back at the office for a level site we were told none of them are level. We did try another site but we could never level up. The manager did give us a full refund. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Price is shoulder season with KOA discount. This campground is pristine, lots of woods throughout, very helpful and friendly staff. Nice upstairs lodge-type gathering room. Office area has great gift shop with some basic groceries. Ready access to the Ausable River (great fishing), canoe rentals, 15 minutes from Lake Placid. We liked it so much that we extended our stay for 3 weeks, and have reserved a month next August. Reservations are highly recommended. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was an excellent campground. We were thankful we broke our cardinal rule concerning KOA (Keep Out Always!). We have disliked KOAs because of their tight spaces, uneven ground and close proximity to neighbors. This campground was able to accommodate big rigs and yet maintain the woodsy atmosphere. It offered a central location to all that we wanted to do in the Lake Placid/Lake Champlain area and even western Vermont area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Excellent place to stay. All sites are among trees, plenty of room for RV and toad. Short drive to Lake Placid and stores. Within minutes of Ausable river. Staff friendly. Stayed 4 more days than originally planned. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed at this campground towards the end of a three week east coast vacation and were looking forward to visiting the Lake Placid area and this campground in particular after viewing information and photos online. Although this campground is a good base for visiting the Lake Placid area, we felt like cattle being moved through the chute while checking in and didn't meet one employee that was the least bit friendly during our stay. And this was during a very quiet time before the large summer camping season began. The majority of the campsites are under large pine trees and the mostly dirt and needle sites were dusty and, well, dirty. Thankfully it didn't rain during our stay. On a positive side, the showers and bathrooms are fantastic and the pull through sites are huge, but we were turned off by the unfriendly staff and all the extras you pay for but never use when staying at campgrounds under this national brand. We will look for a different campground next time. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
The campground is an older KOA with large pine trees so it has a "state park" feel. The campground is very dusty or muddy if it rains since there is very little grass. Our black dog turned gray... We enjoyed the large pull throughs with a lot of room between the sites. You can walk to the Au Sable River. There are several "lean to" sites available right on the river as well as one camping cabin with a river view. We all appreciated the 2 free BBQ tickets that were included with a three day stay over Memorial Day weekend. Check out their other specials if you are booking a reservation. This was a great place to stay to visit Lake Placid, Whiteface and the 1980 Olympic sites. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Overall this campground is very nice - lots of trees, very well laid out, family-oriented. Whiteface Mountain is within view. There's a small playground for the kids, and various types of bicycles were available for rent. There were a few things that were a bit less than desirable - such as the dust. Due to all the pine trees there really isn't any grass, so the fine dust was everywhere. Not the campground owners' fault of course, just one of those things. As well, we were placed in a less-than-ideal site directly under one of the cottages higher up on the hill. It was a very intrusive lack of privacy having people looking down on your site at all times. If I were to give one small bit of advice - don't select the Back-in 30 amp Wi-Fi sites (with no cable) offered to RVs no longer than 30'. It'll be as described above, with a tight fit as well (we were in a 25' trailer). The pull-thru sites looked great, lots of space. And the Wi-Fi was terrific too - fast and consistent. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Great campground. Sites are spacious with easy access. Some leveling needed. Beautiful area - Whiteface Mtn towers over the campground. The grounds are clean. Did not use pool. WiFi works great. Nice trails to hike within the campground area. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Beautiful wooded CG (mostly pine woods, some deciduous & mixed woods). Some tent sites and cabins are spectacular - private, a few with mountain views. Lots of pull-thru sites, but tight turns and leaving many trees in place for natural appearance means challenges for even moderate-sized rigs. Many sites relatively spacious, even the pull-thrus. Log lodge is main bldg, with lg store, meeting room, other facilities. All bathrooms very clean; satellite bathhouse has overhead "rain" shower heads - interesting. Nice pool area, activities (even during the week). Owners continue to improve the CG and their care is evident. Great place! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Excellent park, very clean! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

My family and I camped at this campground and found it to be nice. The pool was nice and well kept; however, there didn't seem to be a whole lot to do - unless you drive into Lake Placid. It would have better if access to the Ausable river was a little easier. Overall, the campground was OK. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park has received very good reviews, which is why I was a bit surprised by the condition of some of the things I've found. Overall, I'd say this is a good campground, not great, but if in the area I'd stay here again. On the positive side, nice pool area and playground. The layout makes for easy getting to your site, etc. It's a large campground, but you can comfortably walk to anything you need. Store is nice, but lacks in basic food items. What disappointed me: the bathhouses. We used the ones away from the campstore. They are the single-room kind - shower, toilet, sink in one room, one at a time. I like this set up, but the floor was warped from water damage, the baseboard had rotted away and just plain wood was put back up, and it had serious mold. I would not consider the bathhouses clean at all, and this is a basic requirement for me. To be fair to the owners, their help is very poor, we watched at least 5 folks spend 2 hours "cleaning" the one bathhouse, they were playing, sitting, goofing off, but not really doing their job. However, the owner must know that the bathhouse needs floor repair and a cleaner environment. The only other thing I didn't like was the laundry room hours, I prefer the ones open all the time, this one didn't open until 8, and I was up, jogged, showered, and was ready to wash clothes by 6... not really a criticism of the campground though, because I realize they can't please everyone. I think if the bathhouse conditions had been better, I'd give this campground a much higher rating. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
We just came back from a trip from Lake Placid. This was about our 10th stay at the KOA Lake Placid. Each time it's been great, but our favorite has been these last two times. The new owners are terrific, friendly people and go out of their way to make sure you have a great time. On holidays the CG owners put on a fun dinner with dance after with a dj. There are also a lot of other activities they put on through the summer, rallies, scavenger hunts. The campground is clean and great ambiance. The floor of the campground is dirt with pine needles, but that's because of the fact that it is heavily wooded. Almost all RV sites are pull through with lots of room. Drove through North Pole park, and wouldn't stay there. Just looked like a stretch of grass with campers parked against a fence. Most people we talked to at the KOA loved it and would return. I know we will next year. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

Heavily wooded park, the full hook-up sites are large and flat. Due to heavy shade and sandy soil not grassy. Access in and out with a 40' MH was easy. Stayed over July 4th and park was not noisy. I would definitely stay in this park again. We camped here in a camper.
This campground has a lot going well for it. It is very clean and well maintained. Each spot is raked and cleaned after the camper leaves. Hookups are well done and in the right location for a variety of units. We were in the front part of the CG and it seemed a bit less crowded than the River end. Water pressure was OK and cable did fine. Site was pretty level. They have a nice playground and pool plus a game room inside, outside bocci, basketball, and a clean laundry. For all those reasons the place would be a 9 or 10. Unfortunately, there are some negatives that caused me to rate them lower. Depending upon your needs these may, or may not, be an issue. When reserving online, we thought River front sites were available. At check in, we found there are no motor home slots at all. We had included that request in the notes but no one bothered to let us know. They just took our money and would not likely have refunded it if we were unhappy. The WiFi is awful. In four days we never managed to get a good connection. We even went into their hotspot area which did not help at all. I heard the same comments from three other campers. When we asked about it, the lady in the office looked at her computer and said, "it is working fine here, must be OK". Finally, the place was quiet at night but, during the day, neighbors felt the need to serenade us with their choices of music plus the poolside music could be heard. Country on one side and Classic Elvis on the other. It is difficult to sing along to two tunes. The hosts frequently patrolled the area and it did not seem to disturb them. I would stay in the front area again, my wife would not want to return. That's the story, as I see it. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Campground in good location near Lake Placid and other attractions. Staff helpful and friendly. Sites fairly close and road to camping area narrow; only one way in and out. Bathhouses old but clean. Located on river and you can rent kayaks at the campground. Have a well stocked camp store. The playground, putt-putt, and pool were very nice. Rate reflects Good Sam discount. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed in the section along the river. The campground is well maintained and has a separate section for tents. The sites are pretty tight. However, they were assigning them on an every other one basis because there was not that much demand. There is a lot to do in the area and the drive up Whiteface Mountain should not be missed if the weather is clear. The Ausable River is dammed at this location which provides for an enjoyable canoe or kayak outing. We would stay here again if in the area We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice campground. Enjoyed our campsite. Choice of wooded or open sunshine sites. Level and well maintained. Clean bathroom/showers; although, no heat at this time and timed showers with no temp control. Office staff had moments of nice contrasting the norm of unfriendly/indifferent/ unhelpful. Would have been a 10 except for office staff attitude. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park has two sections - the resort area and the 100 acre woods. Both areas are very nice. The woods area has sites that are a little more secluded but both are situated very well to fit even the largest rig. The power is good, good Wi-Fi, extremely friendly and helpful staff and clean, clean, clean. Nice playground, pool, and pet walk. Meeting area for clubs. Mini golf and lots of other games are available. Nice store. This is one of the best run parks we have been to lately. We would stay here again and recommend it to all our friends. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a great location for many outdoor activities such as fishing, hiking and close to Lake Placid and the Olympic history there. The resort side of the campground has rather small sites and some are covered with gravel, some are dirt only. The bathrooms were the cleanest we've seen; however, the "lower" and "upper" baths (located underneath the motel area are not handicap accessible at all. There is mini golf and a game room and an adult room with puzzles and a TV. Grounds staff were very friendly and capable and helped us with our electrical issues. I believe the utility company was called to resolve the problem. There are 2 pools on the property, as well and a great playground for the younger children. We would stay here again just because there are so many things to do at the campground or within 20 miles or so. But, be aware of the limitations if one needs accessible access. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great office staff. Nice campground with lots to do for children. They have an adult lounge, too. Nice sites, gravel, but need to level. There's a lot to do in this area. We would camp here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice spacious sites in the 100 acre woods. We were escorted to our site and were impressed right off the bat by how level the site was. We set up just before a horrendous electrical storm and because of all the tall trees we were very protected. It is very convenient to Lake Placid and Whiteface. I was, however, disappointed that because we were 4 adults instead of a family of 4 we had to pay $16 extra. We will definitely return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
To call this a "Resort" is a gross misuse of our language. The desk clerk was rude and unhelpful, the site attendant was not much better. Interior "roads" are not that accommodating and in bad shape other than by the office. The bathroom hadn't been cleaned for quite some time, and the place wasn't even one-tenth full. The sites are difficult to get into even with next to no one there. I gave it a rating of 2 only because it has a nice walking path on the property. Next time, I'll stay elsewhere! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed at the "100 Acre Woods" section. The sites were large and clean. Despite the fact that Hurricane Irene had just been through the week before and the Adirondacks were hit very hard, the campground was open and no debris was visible. The workers were helpful and it appears that the owners run a very well organized campground. Even though it was Labor Day weekend and the full hook up sites were full, it was very quiet. Since we used the campground as a base camp for sight seeing, we didn't use any of the resort facilities. The staff was very attentive and responded when we wanted our cable connection checked. Would like to visit again and use their facilities and trails. For hikers, a campground trail connects to a trail to Whiteface Mountain. The rate reflects a Good Sam discount. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Were here for a rally and were in 100 acres section. All is on gravel with wide enough sites and roads. You are in the trees and that means bugs and no satellite TV. It appeared very tired and in need of some major updates. I understand it had flooded earlier this spring but not all looked like new damage. I would stay again if in area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Our campsite was sand and some gravel with a picnic table and lots of shade. It rained a couple of times which made our site very messy. I should have asked for a pull through because most of these had gravel. This is a great location to visit several waterfalls and Lake Placid. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Our visit started with the woman at the desk saying that we could not have the Good Sam rate because we booked our reservation on line, What? Bad start. The cable TV reception was so bad that we used our over the air antenna. No Wi-Fi as advertised either. We were also told that we could not use the pool because we were staying across the road in the 100 acre wood section. That wasn't easy to tell my kids on the 90-degree days! The only thing good about this park was its great location near Whiteface Mountain. Will try the KOA next time in the area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nicely located in heart of Wilmington on the Ausable River. Good roads and well maintained sites. Very friendly staff - helpful with directions and with things to do in the area. Family oriented campground. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Female desk attendant was abrupt and rude. Other than that, we enjoyed our site on the "100 acre plus" side of the park. The other camping area near the office did not have the isolated sites and trees. Plus, the office side was a lot busier with kids and noise: not nessarily a negative, but definitely not as quiet. Also, $5 a day for internet modem unless one goes to the motel for WiFi. Would not have a problem staying here again, though the KOA is reported to be very nice at a cheaper rate, surprising for a KOA. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Big Rigs Best Bet got this all wrong! Yes, you can get a big rig in here if want go through a obstacle course of pot holes, low tree branches, tight turns and narrow sites. This is a campground not a resort. RV resorts have grass, hard surface patios, paved roads and the list goes on, for about the same price. RV site are located on a 100+ acres down the road about a 1000 ft and on the other side of the highway from the office store and campground amenities. Owners need to invest some $$$$. On the plus side Lake Placid and the Olympic complex are fantastic. (A great place to visit.) But do watch out for the New York drivers in the mountains they like to speed and tailgate. We would not come back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We liked the campground's large lots with fire rings in the woods behind the motor home. There are nice folks at the desk. The damp hosts were helpful and friendly. It is convenient to Whiteface Mountain, and other tour spots. We would not hesitate going back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We loved this campground. It was close to Lake Placid and all of the area attractions. The price was very reasonable considering how close it is to Lake Placid. The scenery of the Adirondacks is breathtaking. If we are ever back in Lake Placid we will definitely stay at this Campground again. It had some of the cleanest rest rooms and laundry we think that we have ever seen. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice campground, beautiful setting, staff can't do enough for you. Very generous sites, but we had trouble finding a spot in which we could level our big rig. We eventually did, but were nearly off our site. The big rig next door to us apparently had the same problem since they were parked nearly diagonally on their site. Still, we will stop there again when we're back in the neighborhood. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed in the 100 Acres section of the park. The lot was large but uneven. Hope you don't get rain during your stay as the spots are muddy. Don't plan on having visitors unless you are willing to pay $8 each and then they can't park at your site. The staff was less than cordial. Would never stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed in the 100 acres section of the park. There is a sign outside this area saying they are big rig friendly, however the lanes through the campground to get to your site were rather tight and we were scrapped by low hanging and branches that were just not clipped back on the sides. The site was very unlevel and a sandy dirt mixture which was hard to keep out of the rig. Wi-Fi was not available but we were given a cable modem which worked fine, as did the cable. The pull-thru site was plenty long and very wooded. We also felt the campground was way over priced and will not stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We came to this campground at the last minute as our site at the KOA was less than desirable. The staff was very friendly and helpful and took extra time to ensure that our site would be level. The roads were paved and the sites were grassy. Sites could have been a little larger. One of the best attractions was that the fire ring was a little area in the forest. So, you really felt like you were camping and the fire ring was surrounded by rocks so it looked more natural than just a tire ring. We stayed in the area which is on the river and we thoroughly enjoyed taking our chairs and books and just relaxing with the river right before us. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Price reflects Good Sam Discount. I was expecting great things from this park based on previous write-ups. We had a site in the Hundred Acre Woods. I have a 37 foot motorhome with a toad. Roads were dirt with small potholes and rocks showing. Extremely tight turn onto the lane my site was on forced me to disconnect toad while on a sharp turn. Not easy. Pull-thru site was dirt. Site was very off-level forcing me to use all my wood blocks to set up. Only spot on the site that I could use to set-up required me to use 30 foot of sewer hose. Sewer hose ran uphill. Very secluded site with fire ring and table. Dirt site with copious rain made everything a mess. I would not return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Staff was friendly and helpful. Park was clean and well keep. Would stay there again, but would like a site on the property across from the river where it was more wooded and private. The Olympic Tour is great. From the campground you can walk to an ice cream store, gift shops and restaurants. Views of the mountains are great from the campground and the hiking trails are awesome. We were at site #5. Loved the rubber flooring in the shower rooms. All the fire rings were surrounded by stones,so it look natural and not like someone lost a tire rim. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice campground with two locations. One is close to the river while the other is in deep woods. Both are very nice. I ran for miles through the 100 acres woods campground. Walked down to the river at our camp. Separate kids and adult game rooms. Ice cream social. Very shaded and private site with cable TV. Easy access to fishing and Lake Placid. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very nice park with lots of trees and a private feeling. Quiet with clean bathroom/shower rooms. Wireless for a fee or you can drive into Wilmington by the visitor center and get wireless from the public library if you just want to check email. Enjoyed the Adirondacks and a drive to Lake Placid from this park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is actually two campgrounds, one on each side of the road. The side we stayed on was smaller, but bordered the river. Sites on the other side were more densely wooded with some pull-thru sites. Extremely helpful and polite staff. Very clean - especially the bathrooms - although small and older. The pool in front of the motel is available to campers and the nicer of the two. There is a motel adjacent so my non-camping mother was able to join us - simple but newly remodeled. Definitely recommend this quiet, family-oriented campground. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Great host . Very friendly staff. Far enough away from the hustle & bustle of Lake Placid to enjoy peace & quiet but close enough to go to town if you wanted to. I believe every site was shaded. The staff was "Johnny-On-The-Spot" in tidying up each site as soon as any one left. Some of the nicest people I have every met run this campground. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Best service ever experienced at a campground - accolades to the workampers at this campground. They made this a very pleasant experience - very helpful and friendly. Two pools are available and a great playground for the kids with a pirate ship and monster truck both made of wood. The sites are a little narrow though we opted for a double wide site for our family and the in-laws to hang out together. Washrooms are the cleanest I have seen (again thanks to the workampers). Canoe, rowboat and paddle boat rentals allow you to experience the Ausable River. They do need to improve their rec centre (old and broken game machines). Lots of friendly campers which is a good sign that everyone is enjoying the park. Will likely camp here again and stay longer next time. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Having camped for over 30 years, my family and I found this to be the best run campground we have stayed at in the Adirondacks. The bathrooms are very clean, and the piped in music is a nice touch. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We are a multi-generational family and there was something to do for all ages. Park gets wonderfully quiet at night (even over the 4th of July weekend). We would camp there again. We camped here in a Tent.

We stayed at the North Pole Resorts Campground for an extended Labor Day weekend and had a very nice time. It is a very relaxing and well maintained campground in one of the most beautiful areas of New York State. We had an extra wide back in site in the original campground (they also have a newer section just down the road called the 100 acre woods). The staff is very friendly and they keep the facilities including the bathroom and showers immaculate. The only reason we rated it an 8 instead of a 10 is the lack of any organized activities for kids. But with all the entertainment options in the Lake Placid area we really didn't miss not having activities anyway. This is one campground we plan on returning to. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
On site owners, an escort to our site, and assistance parking our rv made our stay at this quaint campground very enjoyable. The 100 acre wood area is down the street and offers a woodsy setting with large full hook-up pull thru sites and small no hook-up sites suitable for those looking for a "real" camping experience. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Stayed in section nearest river -- all back ins but escort will help you get in OK. Not
superwide but OK. Extremely nice staff (Work Kampers)and scenic river. Restroom facilities are probably the cleanest and best maintained I have ever seen. New section down the road has wooded and field sites and probably better suited for the big rigs. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice place, very clean. Workers were friendly enough. Just watch out, when you book and pay, you cannot get a refund. My family recently stayed there and had to leave early. We were there for 5 nights and could not get a refund on the 6th night. All sales are final. They also nickel and dime you to death there. I ended up helping myself to a bag of popcorn during movie night. I was harrassed by a member of the North Pole staff asking me why I helped myself and that I owed them 50 cents. After paying $500 for the week, is 50 cents going to break them. Also, they don't have much of a first aid kit. Bring your own. Again, nice place but if you can find another place, think about going there. We camped here in a camper.

This was our first time camping with our new pop-up and the staff couldn't have made it any easier. They had a gentleman take us to our site, helped us position it on the site, showed us all the necessary connections, and didn't leave untill we were pretty much set up. Very friendly staff. The Bathrooms were outstanding...I heard one camper say that they were to clean for him to even shave in. Very close to all Lake Placid
attractions. Looking forward to camping there again. We camped here in a camper.

I totally agree with the person that stated they would return tomorrow. What a great place. We went over Father's Day Weekend and it rained on and off all weekend. The bathrooms were so clean I wondered if people took there shoes off before they entered. The showers are a really nice size, well lighted and ventalated. Did I mention the showers are HOT! Piped in music in the BR also. The sites were very clean and
spacious. The staff is outstanding. I forgot my tea mug and the store was closed. One of the seasonal RVers notice me walking back from the store and ended up letting me borrow one of theirs for the whole weekend. The thing that got us is they go around at night to each site to be sure you don't need anything and to wish you a good night! About an hour after check in they also came by to ask if we needed anything. Would I go back? In a heart beat! We camped here in a camper.

I liked the campground but some of the people that work there have seasonal sites. They act like they own the place and will drive by you all day and never say hi or wave. They were not friendly. The place is clean but alittle hard for some of the big rigs to get into when the park is full. I would go back if in the area again. We camped here in a camper.

We tent camped here for the second time and would return again tomorrow. This is one of the cleanest friendliest campgrounds we have been to. We stayed in their newly aquired 100 acre woods section and it was great. Just across the road from the main campground but has a much quieter atmosphere. There are RV and pop up sites available in this section and they are all nicely situated. Camp store is full of good stuff if your looking for groceries. Let me recommend the Little Supermarket and Hardware right up the road past the gas station. They have the best sandwiches around. We camped here in a camper.

This is one of the very best RV parks we have ever stayed in. The people who own and run this part are tops. They are courteous, helpful and fun to talk to. This park is close the the KOA which we have also visited and did not like at all. The KOA gets more business because of reputation. It is not near as nice. The park is located close to Lake Placid and White Face Mountain. We attended the Octoberfest at White Face this year - great weekend. They also have a motel for visitors which is a really nice place. This one comes with my highest recommendation. We camped here in a camper.
