We have been to this campground twice in the past. However, this time we brought 3 grandchildren with us. We used the pools, which were all very clean, and the game room, which was fun for our 12-year-old granddaughter. Staff went out of their way to be friendly and accommodating. Due to our own water filter issue which we didn't realize at the time, we needed to use the bathhouse for showers. The bathrooms were extremely clean. RV'ing here was a wonderful experience for all of us. We will definitely be back. We camped at Danforth Bay Camping & RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed here 3 nights on a cross-country "fall colors" tour from Tucson. Beautiful park. Fast, friendly and professional staff. 24 hour security. Site was level and clean. Roads are nice & easy. Only Note: My Good Sam GPS advised at the final turn "Your destination is ahead on the left in 100 feet". Nope. It was over a quarter of a mile down that road dead-ending at the entrance, which couldn't be seen. So don't let your GPS put you into a worry mode.... We would definitely stay here again.

Everything is clean, wide roads, big sites. We enjoyed Labor Day weekend at Danforth Bay. Liked the striping on the tennis courts for pickleball, as we play a lot ! Wish there was bocce courts and shuffleboard courts. We camped at Danforth Bay Camping & RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We really do "love it here" -still one of our absolute favorites - and 2015 was the best weather ever - which does make a difference at Danforth. 2 pools, activities for kids. Great Lake, swimming and kayaking. Security can be a little over zealous - they are very strict about the fire. We had a rainy day and were cooped up all day (no activities for teens on the rainy day) , rain died down and we started a fire - got a little late, but we were quiet - their truck came roaring over and the woman rudely told us to put it out. She stood over us until the fire was completely out. I get it, they need to keep control... but a little common sense... we find the golf carts roaring up and down more offensive. Besides that, it can't get much better - the only other things they could do to make it a perfect 10 is work on the bike park in the back for teens and maybe hot tubs. Our site was tight - but the sites near the back are woodsy and spacious. But a great family vacation, with lots to do! We camped at Danforth Bay Camping & RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Go to Pizza Barn - it is just that - a barn with picnic tables that serves pizza - but a popular family outing!

Large sites. Camped here in off season so not sure what park is like in season. Staff were friendly and courteous. Rented canoe and literally had whole Danforth bay to ourselves. Connects to lake Ossipie where there was one other boater, a motor boat with water skier. I'm sure this is not the case in season but week of Sept 22, 2014 park was relatively empty and bay was literally empty. Weather was great so if you want large sites, full hookups and the bay to yourself Danforth Bay is the place. Only down side internet service, both park wifi, verizon and att ( I tried them all with personal and work phone, hot spot, etc.) was very poor. Geographically it was expected though. Highly recommended for off season, cannot comment on in season. We camped at Danforth Bay Camping & RV Resort in a Motorhome.

First time here. We have heard from several how much they love the place, so we had to try it. The pools were nice and clean. They have 2 pools which helps alleviate crowds, but we had no crowds this weekend. There is a really nice, but steep!, hiking trail taking you to a beautiful vista. There was a nice band in the Pavilion. Wish they had more of an audience, as they were pretty good. The arcade wasn't that great; few games and a couple of them were broken. Snack shack on site that had a lot of choices and not terrible pricing. They have a bunch of dirt mounds for boys to bike on moto-cross style located adjacent to baseball field. The lake beaches were well raked and peaceful with coffee first thing in the morning. The store is well stocked with a huge variety of clothing choices for sale. Biggest problem I had was the sites are on top of each other. We camped with friends next site over, thank goodness. If we had strangers that close, I would've been miserable. Also, there are mostly seasonals here. I found them to not be as friendly as those doing weekend stays. We did hear a lot of parties going on with the seasonal sites all around us. Nothing that affected us directly as they were several sites over, but if I heard it right next to me, I would've hated it. End summary is to definitely give this a try for a weekend and search around for sites you might like later. We camped at Danforth Bay Camping & RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Our first time here and our last trip of the year. The campground is nice and it was clean and neat. The bathhouses are nice and seemed to be plenty of them. In season I am sure this is a great place, the pools looked real good. Some paved roads, mostly gravel. The sites were large for the most part and we looked at a few for the future but I know that they are hard to get into in season and we do not like campgrounds that require a Saturday to Saturday week reservation so we might not be calling back. We had a pull-through site that was fine, and we enjoyed the trick or treat time that they had. Basically there are sites up front near the pools available or in the back by the water and the rest is left up to walking. I can see why people love it here but we will continue to visit the campgrounds that we have come to enjoy more. We camped at Danforth Bay Camping & RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

We love this park! We come annually with our grandnephews because there is so much for them to do! The park is always clean, the staff is very friendly and everyone is always very helpful. The sites are large and the roads, in spite of the amount of rain they've had, are well maintained. We always have a great time and will definitely be back next year.

We camped here for a weekend and had a great time. The pools were clean and the water is warm, and the lake/beach area had been neatly raked. We found the restrooms to be clean, and plenty of hot water for a shower. We have been at this resort before and have always had a great time. Although there are a fair amount of seasonals, and a fair amount of golf carts, they are not a problem for us. Management told me they are looking to add shuffleboard and bocce courts in the future, we will be looking forward to this. We camped at Danforth Bay Camping & RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

The campground is overrun by seasonals with golf carts everywhere. You can barely walk down one of the roads or ride a bike without having to pull over for a car or golf cart. The seasonals are not very friendly and we even had a child of one seasonal constantly coming on to our site to play our children's toys all day long. They do have ample amenities and activities with three pools but the actual camping experience was more of a trailer park experience. The bathrooms and showers were clean enough and lake was nice to boat and fish on. We will not return as we have three small children and have been to several other more friendly and fun campgrounds for kids. Geared toward the teenage seasonal crowd.

We will not stay here again. The bathrooms were dirty, the roads are horribly dusty, we encountered several lose dogs, kids were setting off fireworks, kids throwing toys into the side of the RV, golf carts being driven by kids and recklessly, cars speeding, people partying until 2:00 a.m. and kids running through our site all day long, etc. We would not recommend this place.

Lots to do for everyone. Park was well kept all around. Outside staff was great, really nice to see that even the security were down to earth and enjoyable to associate with. Store staff, some not all, could use some personality, and remember they are a customer service business. If you have kids and want to go somewhere they will have lots to do, and can allow you to enjoy yourself as well, this is the place.

Very woodsy but we were on the top of the hill, open area for satellite and even paved going up - great for cycle. Clearly a CG for relatively local folks with kids. Amenities were worth a 10. Lots for kids to do. Bluffs - toured but roads were really bad and few transient sites. Great cable, high water pressure. Would come back.

We stayed on site C2 and were with a group who stayed on sites C1 and C5. We had two dogs among the group. The Good-- The campground definitely has everything you could ever need for amenities. The front desk is friendly and helpful. Our site was secluded and wooded. Showers are great and cheap (.25 for 7 min.) The Bad-- The associated problems with a large campground. We didn't personally have any issues but a woman we were checking in with had a huge mix up with the cabin she had rented. THE BLUFFS. The older people from the associated seasonal campground drive around on their golf carts and our extremely annoyed at the transient crowd. Overall-- This is a great campground and we will definitely go back. We camped at Danforth Bay Camping & RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.
