1 Park near Cold Brook, New York
Aug 2015 - $35.00
Passport America-but only on weekdays. It is a narrow road leading up to the campground, but no problem. We came in a hour earlier than check in and the manager was very unhappy about this and made sure we knew it. The campground has several distinct areas for camping. Some areas are in the trees and the sites are very close together. The area we were in was more like an open field of grass. The sites around us were very large, definitely set up for the larger rigs. We were thankful to be in this area. There was plenty of room in the site for the truck, 5th wheel and jeep. There are gravel and dirt roads through the campground and they were not well maintained. Each site had a picnic table. Pool was cold and very small. We were able to get Verizon signal using a booster-nothing without the booster. Good DirecTV satellite signal because we were in the area outside the trees. Nothing great, but it is a fine place to stop and rest for a few days. - GLPColorado

Tough campground to rate. At times if felt cliquish. Most of the campers know each other and it felt to me that you really have to stay a couple or so months or perhaps seasons to fit in.
The lady at the office while very friendly seemed somewhat passive aggressive about many things. On one hand she wasn't sure we could stay past 2 wks using the PA rate as there was a chance we would be forced to move when the time came for other campers, but when the time came, almost no one would show up because of alleged cancellations, thus we were allowed to stay past 2wks at a PA rate. I wish she was a little more upfront with her rates policy as their website says nothing about how long one can stay using the PA rate. Even so, we were allowed to stay nearly a month at the PA rate. She mentioned in passing other campgrounds we could try when I went up to the office to pay for another week. Perhaps a passive aggressive way of hinting to us to move on. Even so she allowed us to pay late many times, without a word or care, which seemed odd, but it's their laid back kind of way.
The recreational center was free with a ton of toys. They have a nice lounge with all kinds of movies and books. Nice store. Wifi is good at the Rec room and ok in the first 5 or so spots by an open field.
They have over 3 miles of nature trails and almost no light pollution making wonderful star gazing. One can hear all kinds of animal sounds at night. It's a very quiet campground, even on the weekends. Not many kids but some of which are seasonal or rent by the month. Our kids enjoyed playing with 3 girls that rent by the month, and were not happy to leave them.
Overall the place is laid back, but felt a little cliquish to me. Like a unique community. I liked it, I didn't like it at times. It was weird and unique all at the same time. I would visit again, even if I'm not sure they would want me to visit again. But I think they would. - mynyel

A screaming deal at the Passport America rate. Nice enough park, lots of grass and trees. The park seemed to cater to families with small children, and they were all having the time of their lives. There were a few really junky looking places of long term residents, and some rough and rude people in one of those places near where I was camped. I ended up way in the back, having asked for water and electric only. I was just able to get my 27 foot trailer back there, and it was quite tricky to park. Had I known better, I would have paid the extra two dollars a night for a sewer hookup, since I would have gotten a better parking place up front. The spot I was in was very unlevel, and so covered with trees that I had to keep the lights on inside any time I was in the trailer. The trees were no more than a foot over my trailer, which is 11'8" high. Also, to get back to that area, I had to drive through an area where I was brushing the tops of some trees. On the flip side of that, if it had been hot out, that probably would have been a nice cool place to camp. The owners were friendly, but the lady was not too knowledgeable. She told me there was no Wi-Fi , but there was. She showed me my spot on a map, and advised me that the best way to get in there was to back around a corner, then keep backing in the opposite direction onto the site. I did not do that, and don't believe it would have been the best way in there. I only found one dumpster near the entrance, so that was about a quarter mile walk from where I was camped. There is a driving range right on the grounds, and they even have clubs to borrow. - KAP99
