This is a very rustic park located in heavy timber, which means it is a beautiful area but some sites are difficult to get into. The RV sites are more than half monthly people and few were there while we were. Those who were pretty much ignored us. Our site was no more than adequate and the sewer connection is almost usable. It is pipe on top of the ground for most sites, with a block under the end to make it drain so they are often as high as the discharge from an RV's tanks. The pipe is just horizontal with no elbow to point up at the inlet. Water was low pressure and showers were difficult in the RV. There is river access but it isn't visible from the RV sites. Our site was so sandy that previous users had left deep ruts in it and I nearly got the truck stuck in getting our small trailer parked. Larger ones would need 4WD in order to use this site. The price is this park's main attraction as most in the area are at least $10 more per night. We camped at Rancho Pines Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

This park is OK for one night if your RV is 30' or under. I would not recommend anyone with a larger RV going here.

All I can say is I had a great time at the best campground, I have stayed at in years. Everyone was friendly. The trees are beautiful; so tall and lush. I fell asleep watching them sway in the warm evening breeze. The showers where clean and good hot water. The river was nice. I rented a small canoe for the day. I thought the rate was very reasonable for the canoe and the camp sight. Almost cheep for the best time i have had in years. I am going back soon. We camped at Rancho Pines Campground in a Tent.

It was definitely tricky to maneuver through this campground with our 35 footer. There was really nowhere to turn around at the bottom. At check-in, the woman directed us to what she considered a turn-around, but it had an incredibly small radius. Fortunately we were able to back up onto the volleyball court and make the turn. Our site was tucked into hemlock pines, and was just beautiful. However, the constant noise from the highway, just a 1/4 mile nearby, negated any sense of peacefulness. The pool was advertised as heated, but was not. It was very cold, so my daughters wouldn't swim in it. We rented tubes from the campground and floated down the Schroon River. Unfortunately, we were told in the CG office that the float would be about 2 1/2 hours. It took us four hours. If it hadn't of been such warm water, that could have been a bit of a dangerous situation. I'd advise folks to do a bit more research about the float than we did, as there wasn't a lot of information or advise from the office here. Because of the highway noise, downtrodden aspect of the campground, and night-time partying of the seasonal campers (even on a Wednesday night), we would not return. We camped at Rancho Pines Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This park is beautiful. There are lots of permanent residents and they are very friendly. The small beach on the river is nice. The laundry does not have hot water and the floor was dirty. The water pressure was so low that we used the on board tank and pump when showering-even the Oxygenics shower head dribbled. We would stay there again but not plan to get laundry done there.

Hanging branches and trees very close to roadway negate big rigs unless you are very very good. One tiny ladies room, one tiny men's room and one uni-sex. Two shower stalls. No dump station. Better than 80% seasonal. Several rental sites were very tiny and packed between seasonals. For the price it is a decent camp as a stop over or limited base for exploring the Adirondacks. The camp was very quiet during our stay and the grounds were well kept. We camped at Rancho Pines Campground in a Tent Trailer.
