This campground is very nice located 18 miles southwest of Albany with 121 sites located in three loops. No services but many of the campsites are a good size located in a forest with a few having lake views. The bottom loops seem to be quieter than the beach loop sites 1 -52. Our site was a good size located in the beach loop with a picnic table and a huge fire pit. Nice site. Since we came in on Memorial Day and it seemed to have been full for the weekend there was a long line for the dump station and a lot of campers in the park. The beach is not always open during the week. The restrooms were clean considering this was Memorial Weekend. The park has the beach, nature center, basketball court, horseshoe pit , playground, volleyball and picnic sites. The check-in girl was very nice especially since she was overwhelmed with all the campers trying to leave, day trippers coming in for the beach and campers looking for sites. The problem at this state park is that it is full on weekends and not many during the week but then they let a number of people or groups come for the day. There are a number of picnic tables for these groups or families to use but some try to come in the beach loop and use the campsites. I will say the workers did patrol frequently and very nicely tried to move some of these groups out. There is a shortage of parking for the number that they allow in so the beach loop had cars parked along the campsite road which can cause a problem. We would have had a problem getting our RV out of our site. Many of the groups were loud and they are allowed to stay to 10 at night. I know this was Memorial Day, so I have to make an exception but my rating of the beauty of the park, facilities, sites, and staff would have been a 8 with no services. Since they let to many people in for the daily beach pass with not enough parking, I will rate the park lower. Monday night there were only a few of us in the park overnight. - gsnakehill

My wife and I took our trailer here for our very first maiden trip. The sites were flat, clean and nicely wooded. This park is a nice family park that has a nice beach area and boat launch. - bigjimbo78

The site had a fire ring and picnic table. Nice shade trees. We requested lakeside, and received a lakeside spot, but a fence was up. So you could not reach the water from our campsite. We had a very nice time. Would go again. - dgenco

**Note, park does not accept credit cards** This park is a good location to Schenectady and right on the Mohawk river. The park is quiet and clean and lush. The sites are pretty close together and the one we had was particularly un-level to the point of being 1 of the most un-level sites we've experienced in our 2 yrs of full timing. This was really the only negative for the park but it was a pretty significant negative and bothered me enough to knock a star off just for that. The staff was very friendly. The owner's son checked us in and he was really nice so I don't know about the previous reviews indicating bad customer service, but we did not experience that. Park is easy to navigate with good roads in and out. Big rig friendly and good location to the hwy. Sites are gravel. Drainage was good after rains. The internet. OMG the internet was phenomenal. Free wifi that was over 100mb d/l the entire 2 week stay even with a fairly full park. No cable (they should remove that from their website) but OTA channels were good signal and all the channels you'd need. Because their internet was so great, I didn't use the hotspots but I did test them and both Verizon and ATT had good speeds (over 10mb) w/out booster. We had a 50 amp FHU and it there were no issues with that. Lots of walking opportunities and there's a great paved bike trail right by the railroad tracks where you turn to enter the park. It goes for miles. Used Cunningham's laundromat in Scotia and it was great. Very clean and fair priced with lots of large machines. - Jessie1975

Right along the Mohawk River. Very friendly staff. They don't take credit cards. Satellite reception was good using Dish and the Eastern arc. - mcjohnson74

We called at the last minute requesting a pull thru site. They were very accommodating getting us just what we needed for a one night stopover. The site had new gravel and was recently upgraded to 50 amp. We did have to disconnect the fifth wheel in order to raise the trailer to get level. The train noise is loud and constant as others have noted, so just plan on running a fan or a/c unit to generate some white noise while sleeping. This is a great stopover, just a few minutes off the Thruway. And the views of the river are nice. The staff is very helpful, we observed them assisting a couple with a soft tire on their towed car. We will stay here again. - K5R

Major complaint is they put our 30 foot travel trailer in a 16 foot wide campsite. The utility hookups were unsatisfactory, loose electric box, leaky faucet, rusty water from faucet and sewer connection up hill from tank drain. Seasonal travel trailer was less than 12 inches from our travel trailer. Seasonal trailer on opposite side had their children's toys, trash cans and two large gas grills right at our picnic table. Sewer up hill - made it hard to empty travel trailer. Our fire ring was unusable due to being to close to our travel trailer and no where else to put it. Could not tell you who the owners were. Never saw them. The only good thing was a charity car show held on Saturday. Did not feel welcomed there. We will look for other places if travel in this area again. - KMCOtisfield

The park is mostly seasonal campers and was very muddy with all the rain. Sites are gravel and pretty level. Back in site with no utilities issues. Parking in the front of coach in the mud. Narrow roads and had to move car so another Motorhome could back into their site across from us. Steep entrance but doable. Must show current rabies vaccinations. Would not stay here again. Office was nice about changing our site when we accidentally set up in the wrong one. - Vicki K

We were looking for a place to camp for a couple of nights to break up a 10 hour drive from our home to our destination in Vermont. Depending on which direction you come in the entrance can be tricky for some bigger RV. It is a very sharp left turn to enter. Fortunately we have a little pop up. Our site was decent, pretty level, a little wet from recent rains, but shady as requested. Too close to the road for my liking but more than enough space. My disappointment set in when I went to use the restroom. I was told at check in that there were two bathrooms on our level. Showers, laundry etc were in one central location at the bottom. Okay, I can deal with that. The restrooms were a step above a pit toilet. They were flush, very old, smelled. One extremely dirty sink with only cold water, the hot water handles were removed. No mirrors, shelf, hooks. The majority of "campers" are Big RV's and seasonal. Some look like they have been there for years. Some well maintained , others pretty scary. The level below was for tents. It was packed to the brim. And the "campers" in my opinion were not educated in camping etiquette. Several groups/families together with a ton of kids. Great I love to see families enjoying the outdoors. However, the adults spent a lot of time drinking, were loud; did not bother to monitor the kids. Starting at 645 am all we heard was Mom mom mom or dad dad dad .... repeatedly. I wanted to say PLEASE respond to your child, clearly they need your attention. Our 2nd night while eating dinner the noise level was rising. I wanted to take a hot shower, but did not want to hike up & down to the central location. There is no parking near it. The staff is not friendly. We were warned about exceeding the 5 MPH speed limit. Yes we were going at least 7 mph. Most ride around in golf carts We ended up packing up & leaving early. I only recommend this as last resort if you need a place for a night. Definitely not worth what they are charging. Not a great place if you are a Pop UP or tent camper. - abuelita2jnj

Nice long pull thru's ! Beautiful setting on the Hudson River...several geocaches in the area to enhance entertainment ! Did not know that there was no water at site....had to go back around and fill tank for stay....Did not use facilities. - Trucker 2

This is a great NY state park.. best i have stayed at. Very well designed. Large spots. Good access to services. The staff is not over bearing. There are free activities going on during the summer. Two negatives I noticed, no towel hooks in showers, water hydrants on the wrong side for my tank fill. All RV sites have electric, we were forced to stay one night in a tent site had to run the generator it was surely disturbing the piece. 20amp at the tent sites would eliminate this. Everything else, stellar. - Flyfisherman128

This was a very nice state park campground next to the Hudson River. The sites are mostly all shaded under trees. We had a pull-through site which was huge! Paved roads were great to ride bikes on. If you have a boat, the boat ramp looked really nice for getting in and out of the river. There is a really nice playground that my kids enjoyed. The bathrooms appeared to be fairly new and were spotless! There is creek access from the campground for kayaking as well. We would stay here again! - Minniewinniefor4

We have been seasonal for 4 years and this is the last year for us. To call this a camping resort is bazaar. When it rains many sites flood along with the crater size potholes and when it's dry out, the dust is over whelming and choking. This season we have to listen to the construction vehicles all day long. I can not in all reality recommend this park to any campers. We paid $3600. for the season going to $3900. in 2018. - Kathy Coffey

The camp ground is a mess. We have been coming for years, it seems to get worse. Our water spout is broken and sewer hook up was all covered up. We had to rake the site, it had a ton of thick leaves on it. Our table was all chewed up on the bench. We asked to have it switched out at 5pm and told all the workers are gone. It's too bad, it used to be nice a place. We will be giving a different camp ground our money this summer. - OScher

They do have a nice list of activities for kids and adults. DJ one night with a band the second night along with hayride, which consisted of a wagon pulled by a truck, Bingo and crafts. I would estimate the campground is 90 percent permanent party campers. Leaving very few spots for weekenders. The spot they had for us was flooded with about 3 inches of water covering the entire site, so I requested a new site. After much whisper and meeting behind a closed door they said they had another site. I did make a reservation on January 25th and alerted them of the size of out camper. They drove me down to the site, which was not flooded and worked for us for the weekend, but they were very prompt to inform me that if there were no sites I wanted due to them being flooded they would not refund me my money and it was my problem. The two family pools were disgusting. Completely green is color and extremely dirty. I would not allow my son to swim in them. The water slides they had were suppose to be open from 12-3. At 12:00 only two out of the four were open for kids to go on. At 12:45 the mid sized slide opened and when we left at 1:30 the largest slide was still not open. On the next day, 3 slides were open on time and then the large slide opened at 12:30, but for only a half hour then they closed it. There had been no campground cleanup done. Piles of leaves were every where, where the campers had raked their sites, but the leaves on the campground facility had not been cleaned up at all. The playground area was almost non-usable from where they had not finished the work they had started. The site and roads were gravel, which turned to mud when it rained at all or were extremely dusty when it was dry. - tshaunb

Low power (100v), sloppy permanent/seasonal camper sites. Plugged into 30amp site and had 107v. When I turned on my AC the voltage dropped to 100v and AC struggled to start. I had to turn off AC. This type of power will destroy your camper systems. Don't bother to stop here. - Woody48

Traveling in a 38 foot coach we stayed 7 nights in a site for big rigs. We have nothing good to report here. First, we almost took out a low-lying power line that was over our site. The next site we were given had limbs that I had to cut myself before we could back in. We had a 50 amp site with a breaker problem. Each time we tried to use the microwave the breaker tripped and we even had to switch the hot water tank to propane mode. Just so you know there is nothing wrong with our coach...the microwave works even if we are just plugged into our 20 amp garage outlet. We reported the problem, but they never fixed it. Most sites are not level and there's no gravel on the pads. We stayed during the rainy season, the site was a mud pit and we stressed over our back four tires sinking and wondered if we would get stuck leaving. No satellite reception (too many large trees). Almost the entire park consists of permanent or seasonal residents who never move their units. It's an older park located in a quiet and beautiful wooded area, but unfortunately it's been neglected and desperately needs upgrading. We couldn't locate any other RV parks in the Albany area, but if you have a choice, we don't recommend staying here. - JDC10

First impression was that the sites are very close together. Most of the sites are occupied seasonal. The park is very quiet - some minor noise on the weekends from the pavilion (music and such) but nothing crazy and ended by 9:30/10pm. There are two playgrounds - a toddler lot which is fenced and stocked with lots of fun toys that my kids enjoyed playing with, and a jungle gym for older kids. On the weekends they have hayrides, we didn't participate but plenty of kids looked to enjoy this activity. There is a rec room with arcade games and a pool table though don't mind the fun house effect of the building - apparently it is the last remaining original building with crooked windows and sloping floors. The rec room, store and office are one so if the office is closed, the rec room is closed. There is a new pavilion which looked nice, though we didn't visit. There is also a new bath house and laundry room which was nice. There is a swimming pool which we enjoyed but you have to get the key from the office to use it and when the office is closed and it is 90+ degrees outside it is a bit frustrating. We learned the seasonal campers have keys so we waited until one of them unlocked the gate and then went over. Inconvenient but was the option we had to go with. What we liked more than anything here was how quiet it was. People respect quiet time and mostly keep to themselves which we like. Direct "neighbors" were friendly or not ever there and our site was located near a field so the kids had plenty of room to run and play. Oh... they advertise a walking trail around the pond. If you chose to go, beware of the three bridges. They are man-made and sketchy. One of our family members got pretty scraped up when he fell crossing one. But the trail is well marked. We will likely visit again. - Fab4

Large RV park with all of the sites on grass. Many of the sites will require leveling. Interior roads are gravel and would benefit from additional gravel and leveling. Mostly seasonal campers, many with added structures in varying condition. We had a pull through site in a grass field which was very wet. RV Park in kept in decent shape with grass cut and trees trimmed. Not much to do here but suitable as a quick stop or if you are visiting family in the area. - linnemj

Site size very nice, site 1 thru 31 have 30 amp connection 32 and above will need adapter to standard home plug.
Power and water connections are at the back of the site and are "shared" between two sites, extra length of water hose and power may be needed to reach connection.
No sewer connection at site, "honey" wagon service available $10 per pump out.
Walking around 80 to 90% of sites are seasonal, grading of sites are needed in the area of the playground and 7 acre field, saw one that had to put in 12 to 18 inches of blocks to get level on a small TT, this only for 5 or 6 sites.
There is enough room to put ones trailer or rig parallel to the road.
Wireless service is good (VZ), no Wi-Fi.
For a holiday weekend nose level was better than expected.
Spacing is good, you will not feel that you are encroaching on the next site.
Will be coming back. - Ramcharger459

Very nice campground for a weekend stay. We had a nice shaded spot. Would stay again; very pleasant atmosphere. Owners very helpful and courteous. - SASSY01

Beautiful park with gigantic, clean lake, waaaaaaaay off the main roads. Unfortunately they sent my 35 foot motorhome into a loop with spaces for 20 foot campers and the only way I could get out was to sacrifice my awning to an overhanging tree. If you go here plan to spend too much money for no amenities. All of the workers were very friendly but had no clue as to what a motorhome needs or what their campsites offer. Also be aware that "Golden Access" discounts refers to the NEW YORK State Golden Access card, not the Federal Golden Access Card. - FiatSpider79

The website indicates "Full Hookups". This is NOT the case. Honey wagon once a week is NOT full hookups! Other than that bit of misleading information, it's a very nice and clean campground. Weekends do have live bands playing, but it's not bad on the other side of the campground. - Changing Lanes

This park is nearly all seasonal or year round residense.I was there a week with around six rv's comming in. At check in I found they had no idea where you could get satellite reception.I found they do not have sewer hookups,however they do have a free pump out service which I was never told at check in.The spot I was in was fairly large and for the most part quiet. There is also a security gate which is ok but I feit was not needed. - Rip

Although this location is mostly permanent mobile homes, we always look forward to coming back to visit. Easy big-rig parking and setup (this is our third time here in 3 years), only 10 minutes from Saratoga Springs, in a nice quiet area. Not a destination park, no pool, playground, etc., but friendly, easy, convenient and flat. I wish we had planned to spend more time here this year. I'm not sure how many RV sites they have, and they don't take reservations. - melissabrvs
