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

Beautiful park setting with a boat launch on the Mohawk River. Level sites, moderately treed - nice fall setting for this visit. - EnjoyinLife

This is a lovely park by the river. One of the prettiest we have stayed at. However I must disagree with some other reviews on the train noise. We found the train is very loud and it blows the horns many times as it comes by the park. So if you have problems sleeping this could be an issue. - nancyfromnorthshore

Nice RV campground located near Exit 26 off I-90 east of Albany. No road noise noticeable, but a train does run infrequently nearby. Park like atmosphere, with river access boat ramp, but no boat rental. Full hook ups including cable. WiFi signal was weak. Verizon wireless signal was 3 bars. Friendly staff, but they don't take credit cards. About 30 percent seasonal residents. - Bburgbrewer

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

We had a 50 AMP back in Site on heavy gravel. Most of the Park are seasonal. The seasonals are not that friendly, and are cliqueish. The staff is helpful and very nice. The laundry areas are not clean, and one on the hill by the pool smells horrible. The park is quiet at night. Some sites were very unlevel, causing Rvers to use blocking on their leveling jacks. The sewer hookup was at the rear requiring a long sewer hose! We would not drive the distance or return to this park for the cost per night. They charge too much for what you get. - Lindy White

The grounds felt more like a trailer park than a campground. If you want WiFi, they charge $14 per gig, and you can only get that if you call while one, specific employee is working. Otherwise "maybe tomorrow". The ground at my site was sloppy, and after sitting still for two days, my motorhome wouldn't budge. I called the front desk for help. After 40 minutes of waiting, I called again. The desk person was belligerent, despite having not bothered to even call the groundskeepers yet (which he then did on his walkie-talkie, took around 30 seconds). - Liam Meilleur

We were looking for a campground in the general area that would be open in late October to break up a long drive. We're self contained and don't use the facilities except for occasional showers. We stayed here on a weeknight in late October.
This is a very nice campground. The nightly rate with electric is $23 plus $5 non-resident parking. The perimeter sites are relatively large, level, shaded and private while the center sites are pull throughs. Options are for primitive sites or electric only, there's water and a dump station nearby. The push button showers were clean with hot water. There's no wifi. Verizon and ATT coverage was usable. The staff was friendly and helpful. - dsvt

Rate was $27 plus $5 per day non-resident fee plus a $9 reservation fee. Site was a large, level, pull-through site with 50amp. There was no water or sewer at site, but are available in the park. We had cell and MiFi reception (2-bars). No satellite reception because of the trees, but several OTA channels available. This is a new campground with new paved interior roads and new bath houses. The sites are separated by lots of vegetation. The negative about the site was the sand surface. Our GPS route to the park was via eight miles of narrow and winding roads with many low hanging branches. If we return, I would follow highway 9J south from Rensselaer. - Dave51

Nice State Park -- Big Rig Friendly.
An attractive state park that recently added a campground that is nicely laid out and maintained. This was the best campground that we located in the greater Albany and Berkshire area that was big rig friendly. Regardless, we were pleasantly surprised by the natural beauty that was retained when developing the campground, but at the same time the mature trees and other plantings were very well trimmed (i.e., big rig friendly). The interior roads are paved and the sites are primarily sand. - 2FullTimersinaFifth

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

The office looked like it was ready to fall. I was mortified when I saw the bathrooms and showers. Looked like they never clean them. - Magsterone23

The owners are very helpful and friendly. This park has many activities for children. We camp here every year and have had no problems. The park is also dog friendly! It's not a place to go if you want to sit in your motorhome all day and not interact with others. This park is centered around family, fun and children. A wonderful camping experience! - CampMomof6

NOT for big rigs. Tight getting around, dirty electric. We had to run our generator. Owner was very nice but this campground is really for small units. Great for kids, lots of events going on for them.I would avoid if you are over 36ft. - jones 714

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

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

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
