This park recently became a KOA branded park. It is very wooded. During our stay the fir trees dropped a prodigious number of small needles. Perhaps they are deciduous and do this in the early fall. However, they did cover our car every day, and necessitated a full sweeping of the motorhome roof and awnings before our departure. Our assigned site was spacious, but not particularly level. We ended up using extra blocks under both our front tires and the front jacks. The staff at this park are quite friendly and pro-active. Unfortunately they got a questionable reading on a water system test early in our two week stay. We were promptly informed, and the park provided bottled water for our use until they had several good readings. No cable TV is available, but we were able to get several broadcast channels. WiFi worked ok during the day and when the park was not full. We opted to switch back and forth between the park service and our own Verizon. - The Borgs

Very nice park away from the busy life. Right beside Fort Drum, some military activity heard sometimes. Owners and staff very accommodating. Lots of activities for the kids on the weekends. Indoor pool was nice on the rainy days. Small store. AT&T service good. Very quite during the week. Not sure why this is the Watertown KOA as Watertown is a 30 min drive away. - On the way

The staff is very friendly and the owners are working hard to make a nice campground. The sites are grass with lots of space between. As far as we could tell, only #32 had satellite access. The tree cover is too heavy any where else. Verizon 4G service is strong and data speeds were good. There is campground wifi but the the speeds were fairly slow. It would be adequate for email and web-surfing.
Be aware that this park is right next to Fort Drum, an army installation, where weapons practice takes place 24 hours a day. At times the explosions can be quite loud. They woke us up several times during our week long stay.
There is an indoor pool, a hayride upon request, and a playground. During the week, the park is nice and quiet, but on the weekends local campers with their children in tow make it quite noisy.
Be aware that although our rate reflects the Passport America discount, 2015 is the last year this campground is offering it as they are now affiliated with KOA. - FnEJ

Campsites are very roomy. All hookups worked well. There is NO wifi which is a problem for us full-timers. Apparently the campground is adjacent to a training area. There was a company of soldiers and two helicopters working on the hill right next to us. There are many cabins and more being built. The laundry room is small with only 2 washers and 2 dryers. The Allstays directions to the campground are wrong and will take you to the wrong place. Ask for directions at the gate. - Melodycthomas

Nice enough park, with the only big negative being the price. The sites are very large, and although there are no trees, so no privacy, you are a good ways away from your neighbors. Service was outstanding from the famcamp staff and host, friendly but not knowledgeable from outdoor rec. Unfortunately, you have to deal with both. No wifi, except for sale at outrageous rates, but Verizon works fine. Park is very well maintained. Lots of bike/hike trails nearby. Concrete pad absolutely level. - KAP99

This is for military (including retiree) or eligible DOD civilians only. There are RV 16 sites with one taken by the camp host (very helpful!) and there seem to be a couple of overflow sites that have FHU but not on large space nor with level concrete pad. Spaces are huge with plenty of room for tow vehicle or truck, set up screen room or have a game of croquet. Minimal noise other than standard bugle calls and occasional fly overs by helicopters. Bathhouse was large, clean and convenient. Base does recycling of standard metal, paper, plastic and glass. There are plans to get WiFi in the future, but for now you will need to use the base library (closed on Sunday) or rent "hot spot" from MWR at outrageous price. Over the air TV is minimal; could only get Watertown with two commercial stations (CBS/ABC/Fox) and PBS. Having stayed at other service campgrounds, this one is a bit pricey at $35 given the paucity of amenities. We would stay here again, if in the area. - Too-wow

Clean park but very rude owners. They do not care if you rent from them or go somewhere else. Very quiet park. No activities. Does have swimming beach and boat ramp but no docking and no place to leave your boat once it is in the water. Only has 15 amp service. Most sites do not have sewer. The owners here only cater to seasonals who have been with them a long time. This is the first year I have rented from them and paid for a seasonal site. I was told they had a place in the water for my boat but when I put it in the water the owner literally yelled at me for taking a spot and was called a newby with no rights. Will move my unit to a different park at the end of the season. - muskie6

We stayed 1 night and would not stay again unless it was the last resort. Water, electric and sewer worked, but as others have said, the long term residents seem to have it better than the transients. They far out number the overnight people. We were led to our site from the wrong direction. We were expected to make an impossible turn with our dully and 33 foot 5th wheel. Once we got to the site, it was an OK sized pull through on grass. It had rained and the site was pretty squishy. We were able to set up our satellite dish. - RVLive

Only spent 1 night here, mostly seasonal sites. Was probably nice for the seasonals but not very friendly for ones just passing through. - sassy530

This is a lovely little gem of an RV park on the shores of Lake Ontario, just south of Sackets Harbor. The sites are spacious, level and generous in size. Our 45 ft motorhome has room to spare! The grounds are manicured, with plenty of lush green grass, pretty flowers, and a great view of the lake. There are a number of very nicely maintained seasonal RVs and park models here, but plenty of room for transients, too. The roads are easy to navigate and well-laid out. The utilities are all in the right place and all in working order. The big-rig sites are satellite-friendly, and the Verizon signal is reasonably strong. Although on a state highway, it is a designated bike route with wide, paved shoulders, so you can ride your bike to a nearby State Park, or all the way to Sackets Harbor, if you like. The owners are on-site and very attentive. Clearly, they are committed to providing a high-quality experience to their guests. There was even a live music offering on the weekend. We will definitely come here again! - MerBee

This is a nice RV park with a bit over half the spaces taken up by seasonal/long term units. The transient spaces are all located to the back side of the park which is closest to Highway 3. The long term units are all well maintained and the folks are all very friendly. Highway 3 is part of the Seaway Scenic Byway and was busy during the day but not at night and the noise was not noticeable at all. Our site was a gravel pullthru with full hookups ( 50 amp), it was open allowing us to connect our satellite tv with no problems. We were given a wifi code but did not try to connect as our Verizon service worked just fine. It rained, heavily, while we were here and we had quite a bit of standing water around our site but not around our pad area which allowed us to get in and out of the coach with no problems. They recycle here, which is a nice perk but there is only on dumpster/recycling center and it is at the opposite end of the park from the transient/short term sites which makes it a bit inconvenient. The gazebo at the lake front is very nice and the sunsets are beautiful. Lake Ontario is currently at a 100 year historic high so the swim beach and dock were closed. We really enjoyed this park and would stay again if we were in the area. - Amls

This is a gem of an RV park to be sure. This was our first time here and to the region, so everything was new to us. We stayed here a month in a class A RV in a full hookup 50A pull-thru. The owners live on site and are extremely attentive to their guest's needs and to the overall condition of the park. The sunsets over Lake Ontario at their pergola were a treat as was the entertainers they hired on the weekends. This is a quiet, friendly, adult park. The sites are spacious, plenty of trees and grass and access to the main road is easy. We would absolutely stay here again. - rick r
