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 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!

We can't say enough about the camp..or the owners and staff. First time camping here and had an RV site #1 that gave us a breathtaking view of the river right behind us. It reminds me of the Swanee River with its gently flowing waters lined with the elm trees on both sides. The peace and tranquility it created is second to none. So many activities,especially for kids of all ages, that no one could EVER get bored. Been a camper since 1963 and NEVER camped at a park that gave room service to your site with a full restaurant menu that is to die for and picked up garbage daily at your site. The owners are the friendliest people you would ever want to meet and will do anything to accommodate your needs.They have put their hearts and souls into this lifestyle for others to enjoy, and thank God there are people like them. Don't quite believe us? Well just come on down and see for yourself. You will NOT go home without being impressed. After only 3 days here we left feeling like we knew them for years. That's the kind of people the world needs more of. We camped at Tall Pines Campground, Canoeing & Country Store in a Motorhome.

A bit disorganized and shorthanded, but they were a week away from officially opening. Store was a mess, and park looked a bit like a construction site with holes and mounds of dirt all over. Roads were extremely dusty, & the site we were assigned was not marked well at all. It did not seem that this was much more than a stop over park.

First the good. The River was pretty, the cable and wi-fi were outstanding, and this campground has the many activities for children. The owners are also very good business people in the way they have found innovative ways to make as much money possible to accommodate the short camping season in New York. However, the "supersite" we stayed on was very narrow and possible the most unlevel site we have ever seen. This campground is really designed for trailers under 30 ft. Also the 30 Amp electric was very poor and desperately in need of updating as the voltage was extremely low. Also, this campground is designed very poorly in the way that the river sites or only accessible by one narrow dirt road making it very difficult to leave after a busy Labor Day weekend because the road isn't even close to being wide enough for two campers to pass each other. The dump station is also located along this narrow road complicating matters even more. Lastly, several sites were very muddy to the point where one motorhome had to be pulled out of their site with a tractor. I'm not sure we'll return to this campground.

Great place. We stayed for a week as a fishing trip. People at the campground were very nice and helpful. Always had time to talk. We had camper trouble and had to pull out a day later than expected, they just moved our reservations out a day. Very understanding. Fishing is not great along the river (water was very low), but they suggested a few spots nearby that held nice smallmouths. Ice Cream shop was great fun and facilities are in nice shape. Try the all you can eat pancake breakfast for $4.00. Only thing I was not crazy about was their cats walking around on the counters. Overall we had a blast swimming in the river and catching crayfish. Was a really fun time. We camped at Tall Pines Campground, Canoeing & Country Store in a Travel Trailer.

Rate is 2 nights Passport America and 3 at regular price. They have 2 restroom/showers. The newer one near the office was generally clean and not bad to use. The older one located near the middle was dirty and both have pay showers. No sign to let you know how long you have for 0.50 cents. We did have a nice campsite backed up to the river. Lots of rain caused some of the campsites to flood. About 1/2 the campground is seasonal RV's but they only show up mostly on the weekends. It gets a 7 because the river is nice. If you Kayak or fish you might like this campground. We camped at Tall Pines Campground, Canoeing & Country Store in a Fifth Wheel.
