Great park, lots to do,very kid friendly but still quiet and well run. The owners are full time and hands on working to make your stay enjoyable.
Great canoeing and swimming in the river. We camped at Tall Pines Campground, Canoeing & Country Store in a Travel Trailer.

This is a beautiful campground, on a nice river that runs along side. The rating would have been higher except that our pull-through was very narrow and sloped down hill and the young lady in the office was not very helpful, although she was friendly and outgoing. She never gave us a receipt for camping. I called her and she told me that she'd email it to me, which prompted me to tell her that the Wi-Fi wasn't working. She assured me that it was my computer and not her Wi-Fi system, She had also given us a cable TV listing and I told her none of the channels matched to the guide. She explained that the channels change all the time, and I should just search for the channel I want. This really wouldn't have bothered me, but it rained from the moment we pulled in at 2:00 PM until well after midnight and we planned on leaving the next day. Also, they charge for the use of their showers and they are on a timer. And, although we didn't use it, the fire ring so close to the 'pad' that it made maneuvering into the site a bit of a challenge. Had we wanted to make a fire, the pit would have been halfway underneath our rear slide. We camped at Tall Pines Campground, Canoeing & Country Store in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed here three nights. There were lots of things to do. The camp store had a soda fountain. The owners live on site and were very friendly and helpful. The roads in the park were narrow, curved and on hills which made getting in and out challenging but the owners worked with us. The site was level enough. Most of the campers are seasonal and the park had a family feel. Cell service was spotty. Camp wifi was okay. We camped at Tall Pines Campground, Canoeing & Country Store in a Fifth Wheel.

The only thing this place really has going for it is location. If you don't have an RV with a bathroom do not stay here. Pool is tiny and just OK. They do have a lot for kids to do, though we didn't take advantage as ours are older. If you have young kids or want to fish or canoe, this is a good place. Sites are on grass and not level - nightmare after a little rain. Bring extra leveling blocks. Ones up on the hill are on gravel but good luck getting up there and backed in if you have anything bigger than a pop up. The scenery and surrounding area are really nice, as were many of the other people we met there. Cell phones do not work here and wifi is a joke. We camped at Tall Pines Campground, Canoeing & Country Store in a Travel Trailer.

The location of this campground is along a river with several sites on the riverbank. We were fortunate to get a riverbank site and it was very peaceful. The sites along the river are narrow with your sewer fitting in the space of your neighbor. We could see how rain may make the river bank sites into muddy fun for departure. The camp hosts are very friendly and give this campground a warm feel. Wi-Fi is available, but only in the recreational center. We camped at Tall Pines Campground, Canoeing & Country Store in a Motorhome.

We paid a deposit over the phone for a premium site (site with concrete patio), but when we arrived, we were only reserved for a standard site (which we didn't realize until we got to our site). The site was a pull-in with no patio where we would have had to park our truck behind our rig once disconnected. The problem was we couldn't drive around to park behind our rig, we would have had to back our truck out between our camper and the next site (again, we didn't realize this until we got to the site). After looking at the site we determined we would have had a hard time doing this because of the neighbors fire pit, chairs, and other items they had set up. We then drove back to the office to see why our site wasn't a premium site. What happened was, they had us reserved for a standard site but took a deposit for a premium site. In the end, when we arrived and paid the balance, everything had been adjusted for a correct balance for a standard site, but it was very confusing when our email confirmation shows our deposit was for a premium site. After getting this figured out, and telling them we wouldn't be able to get our truck out of the original site once disconnected, we paid the difference and upgraded to a premium back-in site on the river. The site was nice, but I'm glad I carry an extension cord for my shore power since the power boxes and water hookups are in the very front of the site by the road (and our power connection is on the back of our rig). Overall, the campground is clean, the hosts are friendly, and there are plenty of activities for kids and families. The campground could use some updating, the sites are somewhat tight and the gravel roads are very narrow and are in need of some repairs. We camped at Tall Pines Campground, Canoeing & Country Store in a Fifth Wheel.

We had a wonderful time a this RV park. There were great activities for the kids and the canoe trip was a blast. The camp store had ice cream socials and a wonderful BBQ dinner. We camped at Tall Pines Campground, Canoeing & Country Store in a Motorhome.

We had a difficult time getting into site three with a 37 foot fifth wheel. A subsequent stay in site 9 was better. There is just not enough room to maneuver a rig of any length. Only five 50 amp sites and all seemed to be seasonal except one that didn't have a sewer connection. Road getting up to 'pull-through' sites was narrow and in need of work. The BBQ grills on posts and front utilities made backing in a nightmare. Those with back utility plug-ins better bring long cords/hoses. The folks that own the campground are very nice and the potential is here for a nice park but until it is updated, we will stay elsewhere.

We stayed for 2 nights in this campground and I have to say we were very impressed! Our site was a pull through site with a great view of the river. It was level, had a well kept grass lawn and we found it to be spacious enough for us. Our coach is 40' and we were pulling a car, however we followed their directions to the large vehicle turn around area and did not have any trouble maneuvering when we left. I was confused by the earlier review that mentioned trains, as we did not hear any train noise, nor did we see any evidence of trains nearby (I am thinking that maybe he posted a review for the wrong campground here?). Overall the only thing I can think that they might need to improve is a few of the roads that have some potholes in them, but other than that we loved Tall Pines.

We stayed here overnight, just passing through, and it seemed the best option based on other reviews. We were unimpressed. The entrance was full of potholes. We requested a pull-through because we didn't want to detach the tow car. We barely, barely fit. The site was grass and so unlevel that we gave up and just left it out of whack. We were instructed to go to a turn-around at the end of the campground when we were ready to leave. The only way we could get out of our site and make the initial turn was to crossover the RV sites adjacent to us (luckily they were empty). When we got to the turnaround, it was so tight that we had to do some crazy, and dangerous, maneuvering to make it without unhooking the tow car. It is very noisy with trains and near constant traffic from the road nearby. There are many long term RV's although the sites are neat. On the upside, the WII-FI was very good, even better with our extenders. Our price is based on a Passport rate, and it is cash only. We would not stay here again. We camped at Tall Pines Campground, Canoeing & Country Store in a Motorhome.

We stayed at Tall Pines during a two month trip across the country. This was our favorite campground out of all the places we stayed. It was so relaxing listening to the river roll by. Can't wait to get back there again! We camped at Tall Pines Campground, Canoeing & Country Store in a Motorhome.

This is a nice campground with a lot of activities to offer. Our rate is with Good Sam discount. Very nice sites along the Unadilla River. The reason I have not rated it as 10 is a few different reasons. The sites are way too close and there is very little privacy. Staff was disorganized with check in. You have to pay for the showers. There was a lot of activities, however it didn't seem that a lot of people were participating in them. Seasonal sites were well kept. Overall, it was a nice stay, but not one of our favorites.

So many great activities for children of all ages. Very relaxing on the river and made for a nice breeze as well. Our campsite was in A-J right on the river which was nice but made the walk in the middle of the night to the bathroom a pain. It would be nice if there were steps up the hill with a railing of some sort instead of having to walk all the way around the hill. After saying that the walk was well worth it, as the bathrooms very clean and updated if not brand new, showers were great, waters were hot! My favorite part was the glass painting (wine glasses) as an adult. I did take my son to the candy bar bingo which I was a little disappointed with, only because there were about 20 of people give or take and we only played one game, I have been to camps where they split them up into four games and you win 5 bars etc. Other than that had a great time and will be back!
