Friendly and helpful owners but this park is not a destination facility. Good for an overnight or two if the state parks are full. Rate normally $37 for sewer, water, and electric and little else. We camped at Merry Knoll Campground in a Motorhome.

This is an excellent choice to see the area. The transient sites are in field, but with a really great view of the St. Lawrence river, and access to the river as well. Owners could not have been more gracious and helpful. Large sites, fairly level and well maintained. Decent Wi-Fi, good over the air TV. Easy access into Clayton and Alex Bay. We'd definitely stay again. We camped at Merry Knoll Campground in a Motorhome.

Very convenient for Canadians shopping in Watertown. Clean, older campground with seasonals that are nicely kept. Great customer service and pet friendly too. We enjoyed our stay and will be back to stimulate your economy next year! We camped at Merry Knoll Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Park is convenient to all 1000 Island attractions. Park owners very friendly and helpful. Access is quite narrow and tight. Spaces are quite unlevel and we had to use several boards to get our unit even close to level. Wifi signal was good but had trouble connecting. Camped here 4 days Sept 2012. Rate $32.40.

This is a small, but great campground for a stay in the 1000 Islands area. The owners are wonderful and try to help wherever they can. It has a great view of the river and close to many activities in Clayton and area. We camped at Merry Knoll Campground in a Motorhome.

Location next to the St. Lawrence River and views were the best thing going for this park. Tight road access to transient area and uneven sites are the adverse things. Did not experience the power problems mentioned by a previous reviewer, but we did not have to use any air conditioning. The utilities performed adequately for us. The sites would probably get quite muddy if it rained. The owners were very nice and helpful. We camped at Merry Knoll Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Bad power. The owner told me the voltage throughout the park was bad. At our site, it dropped to 95v where it stayed throughout the day. Others were also having problems. Management continued to rent to new arrivals which added to the problem. We ended up turning all the power off at the box. Manage would not offer a partial refund as the owner told me he was not going to suffer a loss of money due to bad power. Cash only-no checks or credit cards. Definitely will not return.

Cash only! Good Wi-Fi. We had a view of the water. Bathrooms/showers were dated, but very clean. A very nice couple owns the campground and they try to keep everything very nice. We would stay there again. We camped at Merry Knoll Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice campsite with a river view. It is clean and the owners are friendly. Only drawback is that they do not accept credit cards, cash only We camped at Merry Knoll Campground in a Motorhome.

Stayed over July 4, 2011. When making the reservations I was told I had a 50 amp hookup. Upon arrival was informed only 30 amp hookup was available. Electric service was poor ranging down to 103 volts. Views of St Lawrence was fabulous. Owners were very customer oriented. Very well maintained landscaping.

Mostly seasonal sites. Clean park with a few decent sites. Nice overlook to St. Lawrence River if you can handle the steep climb back up the hill. Owners are very nice and helpful. We had a site with 30 amp service and were charged an additional $5/day for using our air conditioner. At $43/day, the park is over-priced. We camped at Merry Knoll Campground in a Motorhome.

All of the rain in the last few days made it a bit muddy. We were given a tour of the camp by the manager in a golf cart and selected our site. Everything was clean. The only problems we encountered: it's cash only. And there is a tree that made it difficult to pull out. We would stay here again. We camped at Merry Knoll Campground in a Motorhome.

In my opinion, this is not a big rig park. They have a section that is in an open field, but that appears to be seasonal or long term. The interior roads are narrow and not very friendly because of the trees. We were on a pull-through site, that I had to ask my neighbor to move his truck so that I could get out without unhooking. We will not be stopping there again. We camped at Merry Knoll Campground in a Motorhome.

Rate was Passport America. PPA sites were full hook-ups but close to the road. Encountered no noise from traffic. Grass sites with concrete pads for tires only, dirt alongside camper and in front of camper entry door got soggy and puddled from the rain. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Easy in and easy out. Would stay here again. We camped at Merry Knoll Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice CG right on the St Lawrence, with good views of the ships going by. The owners are about the nicest people we have meet in quite some time, they really care about their guests and remember your name. The CG itself has some 50 amp sites but mostly 30 amps all backins. The water pressure is good, baths very clean. Mostly a 50+crowd camping here so it was nice and quiet. Would come back again. The rating is a solid "8" We camped at Merry Knoll Campground in a Motorhome.
