State park created through donation in 1929. Facilities built by CCC's during the 1930's. Not much in the way of development or maintenance has been done since then. Restrooms are rustic though they do have flush toilets and showers without need of quarters. Most of sites for tents with poor access and tent pad area. Road through park is tight and full of potholes and broken pavement. One of worst state parks, more like unmaintained county park. Has access to beach area across highway. Lots of hiking paths and fishing with several near-by lakes. Designated trailer sites have no hook-ups and were literally sites in a field. No potable water at CG. - Al Z

This older park is located on a small lake and is pleasantly landscaped. Staff was helpful and pleasant to work with. It was early in the season so the beach was not yet open. There are boat docks. Our grandchildren enjoyed the playground. The roads are paved and nice for walking. We stayed here to have a location close to Poughkeepsie and to a Metro station. Most of the lots seemed to be seasonal. - Bonnie Lee

This campground is on a beautiful lake, but it's too far from the highway for a one night stay. I'd recommend it for a longer stay, however, because it's a lovely, peaceful spot! We had a roomy, level, gravel back-in site site with shade. The wifi worked well; no cable. - Lyn T

We got the impression this park was mostly for seasonals and long term residents. As you enter the campground, you can see a number of campers that basically look like trailer homes and there was various debris stored here and there. None of it was terrible, but it was noticeably different than the other RV parks we've stayed in.
While the campground is located on a lake, and the loop we were in was ok, it definitely did not seem like a destination campground. When we first arrived and walked into the little campground office, I said hello and the guy just stared at me. I actually wondered if we'd walked into the wrong office or something. I said we were checking in and he just responded: "Last name?" Not exactly warm and fuzzy. He handed me a couple pages of rules to sign off on and then directed us to our site.
Our loop was a large grass field with RVs parked along the perimeter. The sites are large and level and there was good site separation. There were no trees or bushes between the sites. The hookups seemed ok, but we lost power twice. Once was during a thunderstorm, so no surprise there. But the other was just random with no obvious reason.
The lake has an area buoyed off for swimming and the green spaces are well kept and pretty, but the buildings look pretty run down. We tried walking around the perimeter of the lake, but ran into some lovely signs from some crazy neighbors threatening to shoot us if we trespassed. It might have been nice if the campground management mentioned the fact that some lunatic gun nut lived nearby and threatens to shoot their patrons....
In any case, other than the FDR historical sites in Hyde Park, there's not a whole lot to do in this area. It was just a transit stop for us and that's all I would recommend it for. If it was $30 or $35 per night, I might feel differently. But for $50 per night, I expect a bit more than unfriendly welcomes and death threats from the neighbors. - LGRV

The park was especially crowded. The staff tried hard to keep up but there were so many people they were overwhelmed. The water system failed to work in the morning. We had no water at our site. The bathrooms were non functional due to the lack of water. I am sure this was a one time event but it obviously impacted our impression. Our site was steeper than usual. - lancecamper

We only stayed one night as we were traveling from NY State to Conn. We were happy to have a level, full hook-up, crushed stone site that was long enough to back our trailer into without having to unhook. TV/cable was via Direct TV & out due to the rain. We could not access the WIFI either. The park was quiet on our rainy, weeknight. Many of the interior roads were paved & fairly tight, but not unmanageable. Our spot had lots of mature trees & vegetation. We would stay overnight again. - R&S

Well stocked store. Wine shop on site. Small fenced dog area. Unfortunately, people had not been picking up after their dogs in the dog area. Spacious and private camp site. Can take a day trip to New York city with bus tour that picks up at campground. We couldn't do it because we have a dog with us. Nice shady campground with good places to walk the dog. Some reviewers commented about a lot of poison ivy. We saw some but would not say it is over run with it. - ClassCdogperson

Very disappointed with this military CG! Not only did they raise the price by $8 a night because of "graduation week", the bathrooms needed updating and cleaning, the grass was overgrown, the "sites" were not well defined. No wifi. No sewer. No cable although over air got a few channels. Laundry room had both dryers "out of order" for 2 days as the man with the "keys" was off! All back-in sites! - CSM Carolyn

This place earns a 5 star for location; however, the sites were designed for 20' travel trailers. That being said, the sites are not well organized or standardized and definitely not very level. You never know which side the power pedestal and water hookup will be located. When it rains, puddles are everywhere because of the lack of even gravel. The laundry room and showers were dirty and didn't appear to be truly cleaned for months. And since there is no sewer hookup at the sites, you are forced to use the facilities. No WiFi and cell coverage is spotty, which is common for the area. If I were the Commander of USAG West Pont and the USMA, I would almost be embarrassed that this place is associated with the school that produces some of the finest engineers in the world. - Techn0

Very winding steep hill getting in, but we managed fine with our 42.5' fifth. The campground itself is a one-way street, but there was no way we could have exited the campground going the proper way on the loop. When we left, we had to go the wrong way, which worked fine, as it wasn't busy. We were disappointed in that the couple of washing machines were all broken (laundry room completely locked). Additionally, even though campground was open another week beyond our reservation, they stopped honey wagon service during our stay, without announcement on their website or to those who had reservation. They shut it down because that's what they decided to do, not because the honey wagon was broken. Wish we had known that when we made reservations (8 days there, family of 5...need a honey wagon if no sewer). While the other sites were nice, ours was in a dirt parking lot right by the bathrooms. It made for easy in and out, but not so much for aesthetics or privacy. The park itself was beautiful and quiet. We loved visiting in the fall, with the warm days and crisp nights. Would stay there again, but would make sure to ask questions next time about the amenities. - RVerFamily

What can I say about the best campground we have stayed in. Now have stayed 17 nights and have enjoyed them all. Activities great, facility extra clean, staff extremely accommodating and friendly. Cable TV of over 80 channels! Free WiFi near excellent. This is proof of you get what you pay for. Worth the $$$. - Jimbeau

Second time staying here. Had a great spot right on the river. Water park feature and two pools are great for the kids. River is also quite good, though it was a bit shallow given the dry spell recently. Still, were able to wade/walk in it, and kayak too. Highlight for us was being able to rent a hot tub! They brought it to our site, filled it with hot water, and it was waiting for us when we arrived. Used it every day- just awesome. Food by the pool was surprisingly good. Campsite store was fine. Getting a good seat by the pools can be a challenge- should get there early. Also, the river front sites with the concrete pads are pricey- that was my biggest negative. But all in all, enjoyed our time here and will definitely return. - RRiv

We stayed at this campground in 2016 without issues. 2018 presented many issues. The campground has been greatly expanded since last season with both new cabins and new sites. Escorts in golf carts took each camper to their site ---except for our 39' rig and most likely others too. We were abandoned by the escort as he indicated he didn't know where our site was. He never came back for us!!!! He had the same map we did and after a nearly 30 minute wait we figured it out for ourselves. None of the new sites were numbered even with temporary signs. There was no fire ring (very chilly weekend) or cable for our site. We called and had to leave a message which was NEVER returned and we asked an employee who NEVER got back to us either. Communication is a HUGE issue as we wrote a letter (4 weeks ago) to the campgrounds with these issues and have NOT heard back from them. - wisewoman

Campground roads can only fit one vehicle. Sites are poorly numbered. Ground is not level and wood debris strewn all over. Campsites are much too close. I could hear personal conversations from neighboring campers. Broken curtains on shower stalls. No dressing room and must dress in front of everyone who is using the toilets- I left the campground earlier than planned because I could not shower. - Ugogo

We have experienced NY state parks that are well set up and well run. This is not one of them. The sites are strewn all over a hill side with cross roads that are steep and barely wide enough for a vehicle. Each site is identified with a number, but there is no indication at each "road" what sites are along that "road." Once the office closes around 6:00 pm, according to the signs posted, there is no one on site overnight. Of course, there are no hookups whatsoever. The place was OK for two mid-week overnights of dry-camping while exploring the area, but there's not much to recommend the place. The trash barrel at my site was packed full for two nights. The $5 surcharge for non-residents plus the $2.50 "transaction fee" (for showing up?) is the frosting on a lousy cake. I don't think I'd stay there again. - Jay Rutherford

The campground is only five miles north of Hyde Park, where the FDR and Vanderbilt National Historic Site is located on beautiful route 9. So we stayed two nights without hookups near the Hudson River. The sites are not level but you can find some that will take RVs under 30 feet. There are bathrooms with showers but we arrived on Memorial Day and they were dirty and stayed that way for our two day stay. The host site was not filled and I think maybe the hosts are responsible for the cleaning? Nice hiking trails high up along the Hudson River going to the Marina and north of the park. Cottages are available for rent. This is a big complex of over 1,000 acres. In the park there are picnic areas, trails, bridle paths, fishing, two 9 hole golf courses, cross country skiing, sledding hills, snowmobiling and the Mills Mansion. - gsnakehill

Very nice campground. We camp here 4-5 times a year. Price can't be beat. Showers and bathrooms leave a bit to be desired but the price is right so you can't complain. Staff is good and the grounds are beautiful. The lake is great, hiking trails are great and overall experience is awesome. Excellent bang for your buck. - Garymac28

We stayed 5 nights at this campground and the bathrooms were never cleaned once. There was fecal matter on the floor that was there all 5 days. The showers were filthy. The campsites were nice, but we were very disappointed with the condition of the bathrooms and showers. - Stolz

The extra fee for out of county residents is a bit much. The electricity kept fluttering and was not dependable to leave on during the night. Maps and any information were not available. We looked into the bath houses and it wasn't a hard decision NOT to use them. They are filthy and smell. We will drive on rather than stay here again. - Arizona Traveler

Stay away! Online rate said $35.00, I was told by "Manager" (who seemed either drunk or stoned) that the rate was $45, cash only, that they were "trying" to change it on online! Yes, it did say rates are subject to change without notice, but it still did not sit well. He gave me change, shorted me $5.00, no receipt. Asked about wifi and he said rate for places w/ wifi in area would be $60.00. Space was pitch black, and 30 amp plug was chewed up, sparked when connected! (no disconnect switch) Had to drive through big pile of leaves to get into site..totally dark, difficult to see where to park. Never again!! - NFRS

Mostly tent sites; about 5 RV sites. Sort of level. Very small but only game in town. No WiFi, no TV. Bathhouse reasonably clean. TP so thin it tears very easily. We were there for a wedding, otherwise we would have left. Oh yeah, no receipt for payment, either. All very casual. Owner makes rounds in his car -- too fat to walk -- takes about 10 minutes. - MovableBookLady

This is a great, small, unimproved campground. I am rating it an "8" because it was clean, quiet, and a great location. This is a Rustic campground. No electric hookups, no sewer, no water spigots for filling camper tanks, and No dump station. There are a couple water "pumps" available. You really do have to crank the hand pump up and down to get water. The pit toilets, otherwise known as outhouses, are surprisingly clean. But they are still outhouses. Probably most of the campsites are tent only. I checked "not big rig friendly" because the entrance road is tight in spots, and some of the campsites are difficult to get into and are not really level. Okay, after all that, this is a beautiful, heavily wooded state park in a beautiful area of Connecticut (Litchfield County). The campsites are large and well spaced in small loops along the Macedonia brook. Our campsite (site 47) was clean, with a large fire ring that had been cleaned out. Our site was not level and when we backed in our trailer it was facing the wrong way, but that did not detract at all from our experience. It was not crowded at all when we were here, and very quiet. The hiking trails are not very long, but a few of them are surprisingly challenging. If you are not in good shape for climbing you may want to check with the Rangers about which trails to hike. The views at the top of the Macedonia trail are great, and worth the hike. There is a lot to see in the surrounding area, including a covered bridge, Kent Falls State Park, museums, and much more within an easy drive. As long as you understand the rustic type of campground this is, it is a great place for a quiet camping trip in the woods. - Tom
