No frills, just a great place. Rate shown is Passport America. Managers are great and helpful and keep the area well maintained. Has limited number sites for short term use. We would stay again. - kick

Although this location is mostly permanent mobile homes, we always look forward to coming back to visit. Easy big-rig parking and setup (this is our third time here in 3 years), only 10 minutes from Saratoga Springs, in a nice quiet area. Not a destination park, no pool, playground, etc., but friendly, easy, convenient and flat. I wish we had planned to spend more time here this year. I'm not sure how many RV sites they have, and they don't take reservations. - melissabrvs

Site size very nice, site 1 thru 31 have 30 amp connection 32 and above will need adapter to standard home plug.
Power and water connections are at the back of the site and are "shared" between two sites, extra length of water hose and power may be needed to reach connection.
No sewer connection at site, "honey" wagon service available $10 per pump out.
Walking around 80 to 90% of sites are seasonal, grading of sites are needed in the area of the playground and 7 acre field, saw one that had to put in 12 to 18 inches of blocks to get level on a small TT, this only for 5 or 6 sites.
There is enough room to put ones trailer or rig parallel to the road.
Wireless service is good (VZ), no Wi-Fi.
For a holiday weekend nose level was better than expected.
Spacing is good, you will not feel that you are encroaching on the next site.
Will be coming back. - Ramcharger459

Very nice campground for a weekend stay. We had a nice shaded spot. Would stay again; very pleasant atmosphere. Owners very helpful and courteous. - SASSY01

We found this park to be less than satisfactory. The dirt road to the sites are very narrow and filled with pot holes, ruts and rocks. The office is open very limited hours and some days not at all. Difficult to have mail delivered since it is questionable when you would being to pick it up. No escort to your site, really very little assistance with anything. You are pretty much on your own. Weak wi-fi, no Verizon cell service. We traveled in a 45' motor home which was extremely difficult to maneuver to our site. Proximity to Saratoga is not a quick trip in for any supplies, shopping, etc. - Eagle2013

We stayed for 3 days and frankly couldn’t wait to leave! There are very few choices from which to select if a visit to Saratoga Springs is planned, and we chose the one with the least negative comments. The location, although only 8.5 miles from Saratoga, seemed unbelievably remote – our GPS couldn’t even find it. When we finally found the place, we were given a campground map and directed to a location up a circuitous road, hilly and filled with deep potholes – no escort. Our site was not level, and the hookups were not conveniently located for our size trailer. Situated in a heavily wooded area, the surface was dirt, and we were relieved it wasn’t raining. The only plus was the bathhouse, which was immaculate. The showers, metered, were hot and strong, but not well designed without a place to put one’s clothes and inconveniently located hooks. There is a very weak Verizon signal. It’s definitely not a repeat for us! - Safe Trip

We stayed for a week. The roads in the campground are narrow and full of pot holes with tree branches brushing our RV. Our site was level and the utilities worked. This park caters to seasonal guests. There have some daily and weekly sites beside the office. We were in a 40+ foot RV and I did not see another site that we would fit into. I would nor stay in this RV park again. - kleamon

Have stayed here before. No sewer hookup and dump station was overflowing. Management could care less. Pool was filthy. Showers were clean. No working pedal boats. Snake bar never open. Store closed most of time. - wino

They were in the process of closing for the season. Took our money and then were thinking of shutting off the water in baths. Site was adequate. Managers attitude wasn't very friendly. Dump station is very poor set up. Was not impressed for something called a resort. - russ1102

We have camped here every summer since 2008 and have gotten to know everyone that is here. This is an excellent park that is improving every year. A previous post stated that it is a membership park which is incorrect. It is a public park that allows members from it's sister park to camp if space is available for a limited number of them. The owners live locally within 20 miles of the park and are often seen at the park during the week. When the park is closed for the winter, reservations are made through an office in Michigan, during the open season, reservations are made at the park. ( FYI- Cabin # 6 has a bed, a futon and a loft for sleeping bags/ air mattresses) We have rented them for visiting family members. As far as I am aware, 'Michigan" only handles membership questions/issues, all other problems are handled quickly by the staff. We have never had any problem with the park other than no sewer at the sites. They have an inconvenient pump wagon but a new sewer system is supposed to be in place next summer. They have lots of stuff for kids to do on holiday weekends and it is really close to the horse track. Great place, you should try it! - ponti

Stayed here using our Coast to Coast and was surprised that they charged an additional $10.00 nightly for the campsite. Had 30 amp and water but no sewer available so not sure why we had to pay extra. Sites were okay but nothing special. Will not stay here in the future. - Dedra C

PROS: Nature, being from FL the tall pines and hemlocks were beautiful CONS: Office: Called in reservation, charged the our entire stay, when we arrived there was no record and staff asked how we wanted to pay, I had to tell her the amount. Needed WiFi. She said it was not working. During reservation ask for full hookup, there is NO sewer at any site. Store: dark, low stock. The ice was kept in an old ice cream freezer. The ice was melting in the cooler. When I pried one loose, it was a total block of ice. Site: We had our choice, we choose the best. All, including our own were not level. (Would comment on all the mud, but no one can help if it rains a lot, but it was muddy). Showers: Ugh, Three stalls. One had a hole poked through so I thought I wonder if someone can view me. Walked around the back and the outside wall was missing from 4 feet down, exposing the 3 fiberglass showers stalls. Probably to fix a problem, but it was evident the backs had been exposed for awhile. Washers: Room dirty, had 4 washers, 4 dryers and only 1 each worked. Dump Station: OK but on a semi circle so positioning is awkward. Comment: I am not kidding when I say the photographer who took pictures of the place needs to get a bonus! All those items exist but they must have staged and scrubbed everything for the shoot. They had to be taken when it opened. I believe this may have been a good place when it opened, but there has been no upkeep, it is falling apart. Recommend: No, but if you like roughing it in a tent it is the place for you. There is a sister site at Lake George, NY, I do not know if is like this place. I will not return. I do not see myself as a complainer; camping is camping, but the ads and staff are not to be believed. It is not a Resort as the ad states, but we don't look for resorts, but we do look for a campsite that are trying to get it right; this one fails. - oliver quibble

The owners really are the nicest folks you could meet. FHU's & long pull through sites, however the gravel sites are far from level, our rear tires were 3" off the ground. The park is quiet, & way off the beaten path, 15 miles to town. Bath/showers are kept clean but are a bit beaten. Not a lot to do here in the campground. - rvrrat520

The main campground is a little sparse for vegetation. We stayed two nights and got to stay in the seasonal area (most of their seasonal guests had left for the winter), which was tucked away in the trees. Very nice hiking. Looks like there is a group area that can be used by a large group such as boy scouts. We felt very comfortable and safe at this park. - FloridaWanderers

The family that owns the campground are the friendliest people you'll ever meet. It is a small campground, but it is everything the website claims. It is quiet and peaceful, with a nice hiking trail. The only bad thing i could say is the gnats were heavy the weekend we stayed there, but that comes with the territory. We've stayed there before, and would stay there again as it is close to home when we can only get away for a short stay. - 2006F-150

We have been seasonal for 4 years and this is the last year for us. To call this a camping resort is bazaar. When it rains many sites flood along with the crater size potholes and when it's dry out, the dust is over whelming and choking. This season we have to listen to the construction vehicles all day long. I can not in all reality recommend this park to any campers. We paid $3600. for the season going to $3900. in 2018. - Kathy Coffey

The camp ground is a mess. We have been coming for years, it seems to get worse. Our water spout is broken and sewer hook up was all covered up. We had to rake the site, it had a ton of thick leaves on it. Our table was all chewed up on the bench. We asked to have it switched out at 5pm and told all the workers are gone. It's too bad, it used to be nice a place. We will be giving a different camp ground our money this summer. - OScher

They do have a nice list of activities for kids and adults. DJ one night with a band the second night along with hayride, which consisted of a wagon pulled by a truck, Bingo and crafts. I would estimate the campground is 90 percent permanent party campers. Leaving very few spots for weekenders. The spot they had for us was flooded with about 3 inches of water covering the entire site, so I requested a new site. After much whisper and meeting behind a closed door they said they had another site. I did make a reservation on January 25th and alerted them of the size of out camper. They drove me down to the site, which was not flooded and worked for us for the weekend, but they were very prompt to inform me that if there were no sites I wanted due to them being flooded they would not refund me my money and it was my problem. The two family pools were disgusting. Completely green is color and extremely dirty. I would not allow my son to swim in them. The water slides they had were suppose to be open from 12-3. At 12:00 only two out of the four were open for kids to go on. At 12:45 the mid sized slide opened and when we left at 1:30 the largest slide was still not open. On the next day, 3 slides were open on time and then the large slide opened at 12:30, but for only a half hour then they closed it. There had been no campground cleanup done. Piles of leaves were every where, where the campers had raked their sites, but the leaves on the campground facility had not been cleaned up at all. The playground area was almost non-usable from where they had not finished the work they had started. The site and roads were gravel, which turned to mud when it rained at all or were extremely dusty when it was dry. - tshaunb

Beautiful park setting with a boat launch on the Mohawk River. Level sites, moderately treed - nice fall setting for this visit. - EnjoyinLife

This is a lovely park by the river. One of the prettiest we have stayed at. However I must disagree with some other reviews on the train noise. We found the train is very loud and it blows the horns many times as it comes by the park. So if you have problems sleeping this could be an issue. - nancyfromnorthshore

Nice RV campground located near Exit 26 off I-90 east of Albany. No road noise noticeable, but a train does run infrequently nearby. Park like atmosphere, with river access boat ramp, but no boat rental. Full hook ups including cable. WiFi signal was weak. Verizon wireless signal was 3 bars. Friendly staff, but they don't take credit cards. About 30 percent seasonal residents. - Bburgbrewer

My comments below from 2016 hold true through the 2017 season as well. Several more of the bad apples have either left or been evicted (as recently as today 8/3/17). Additionally, this year the campground has made so many improvements! The water system was completely overhauled, electric services upgraded, septics have all been located and consistently maintained, and improvements to facilities such as the volleyball court. The improvements continue daily! The goal of family friendly, quiet and respectful campers, and all around beauty is coming together! (2016) Keep in mind, most of the bad reviews are coming from either evicted or disgruntled seasonals after finally being held to the rules. This campground has improved SIGNIFICANTLY since we came for our first tour in 2014. We began our seasonal residency here in 2015, are here again for the 2016 season, and just signed up for the 2017 season. The improvements made so far are impressive, and the remaining items are being worked on. This place was in bankruptcy for many years before the new management company took over in 2015. They are doing the best they can with what they were given. The new site manager this year, was given the task of putting the rules in place and finally enforcing them. Some of the seasonals didn't like that, as they were the proverbial inmates running the asylum before. Evictions were made and the place has been heaven since! Thank you for all your hard work! - Chris and Monica

1st year seasonals here. Coming from a near by campground of "30" years. So far everything has been great we are on month #4. We picked a spot that faces the woods very private. We had crushed gravel hauled in for ground cover. I love that the sites are spacious, hate when campers are lined up and so close to each other! They have lots of trees, bathroom are clean . Staff is friendly . Campers are friendly! I LOVE the dog park! The pool is a decent size. I gave it 4 stars only because there could be a little more entertainment. Musically. And that's only based on what my fellow campers say. With that said I am perfectly happy here. We have something going on for he most part every weekend. It's not a crazy loud campground. I do not want because I have a 11 month old as well as a 14 year old. I don't come to camp to PARTY and not do I want to hear people up until 2:00 am while I'm trying to sleep! Rules of coarse! As a business owner ourselves we deal with the public and they can be ruthless! And you always want to prevent the possibility of being sued! These days seem to happen so frequently so rules ARE A MUST!!!! I love the location. I prefer camping in the Adirondacks . This campground is In the woods BUT a few miles to the gym (ymca), mall, markets and shopping! Ok back to the campground. There are great horse shoe pits, volleyball, random sit and relax. Lots of bath houses and laundry. No water OR sewer problems. They have added great lights on the paths through out the campground. So yea I am a camper that just Follows simple rules. My kids are not out of control they also are respectful. We have fires at night, hang out with friends, drink some spiked seltzer, laugh with the manager and enjoy camp life ❤ so far my family (3) other seasonal and I have nothing but a great experience and nice things to say! Happy Camping & thanks for reading! - Chrissy 78

Sent a request from their web site to reserve a spot--no response after a couple days so I called. Their web site said the "in season" ends on September 3 (odd since the holiday weekend ended on the 5th). I was making a reservation for the 6th. No, the web site has not been updated, the season ends on the 15th. I did not have time to search for a more "honest" campground, so I had to pay the "in season" rate. Their web site also says they honor Passport America. Well they do kinda--they give 5% discount to PA members. Good Sam was 10% so took that. What did I get for my $40.50? They were kind enough to give me a pull through which is just the middle of an empty field infested with ants. I will concede the spot was reasonably level and utilities were placed for easy access. No free wifi for that price apparently. They did not give me a code and when I went to use my iPhone, I was directed to a link to sign up for wifi-- $5 a day. I went to the office to clarify--the office closes at 5PM--really??? --but it was 4:45 and they were already closed. The rest of the park is rustic and well packed with seasonal sites. - nanzhere

Laundry was good. Site was a mud hole. Office staff was not very helpful. We paid more than we ever have and received less value than ever before. - mtnloverme

The bathrooms/showers were dirty. We were promised 50amp service & received a site with 30amp. The sites were suppose to be pull-thru's, but the seasonal campers park their cars in front of the pull-thru sites blocking the exit. This is a dog friendly park, however, at the entrance of this campground they keep a dog tied to a tree. Poor dog was tied there day and night on a short leash for the entire time we camped. - Ibis

Dirtiest restrooms / showers / laundry room that I've ever encountered in my many years of RVing. Dead and live bugs in all facilities. Same ones were there the next day. Old cobwebs hanging in many areas Electric was supposed to be 30 amp but kept tripping the breaker even with no A/C or TV running. I will never stay here again. - Jim & Suz
