Great place. Sights are over sized. Owners are very attentive. Very quiet. Sites were level. You were escorted right to your site so there never any confusion. Planning on going back. We camped at Cooperstown Shadow Brook Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The best maintaned RV park I've ever stayed at. 15 minutes from the hall of fame. No septic hook up on our site but honey Dipper did the job halfway through our week stay. 15$. Many sites are full hook up. All park guest where respectfully following rules. Owners love the grounds and it shows. We camped at Cooperstown Shadow Brook Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This park is wonderful. The owners are active managers and the park is immaculate! They are very friendly and went out of their way to make us feel welcome. General store was cute and had some bargains. We camped at Cooperstown Shadow Brook Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Large, spreadout campground, providing lots of space between sites. Sites are gravel with grass between. We could not quite get our MH level (rear end high) but it was satisfactory. Solid 30 amp service, nice picnic table, fire ring. We arrived on a Sunday after the office was closed, and due to a miscommunication, there was no info on the board for us, but a phone call to the owners' cell brought prompt help. Not only did he direct us to our site, but on the way stopped at an available sewer and dumped our tanks for us! On the way out the regular dump station is easily accessible.

Our only complaint was we were never able to connect to the camp wifi which is supposed to be free for 1 hour every 8 hours. And the campground was far from full. We camped at Cooperstown Shadow Brook Campground in a Motorhome.

Parking in Cooperstown is very limited. Plan to park (free) in the red trolley lot and take the free trolley into town. Had a delicious - and filling - lunch at the Doubleday Cafe.

We stayed here 2 nights to visit the Baseball Hall of Fame. This campground is very convenient to Cooperstown. It is clean, well kept up, and peaceful. The owners are very friendly. We were shown to our site when we arrived. The site had some shade, was very spacious, and level. There is a picnic table and fire ring at each site. The restrooms, showers, and pool were clean. After swimming, we stopped by the office to see how big their firewood bundles were (as they were charging $6.50). They were much bigger than the typical bundle of firewood, so we said we'd be back with the truck. Instead, the owner took a bundle on his golf cart to our site. The only downside is there are only 4 showers and they are up by the road. We'd stay here again if we're ever back in the area. We camped at Cooperstown Shadow Brook Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We found this park a very nice park while visiting the Cooperstown area. It is approximately 8 miles to Cooperstown. The sites were of above average size for a private park. There is a swimming pool, small lake and arcade for kids. We were fortunate the time we spent at the park was not near full. That made the park that much more desirable. The wifi was ok but would probably deteriorate with higher occupation (we find this in most parks). I would rate excellent if sewage was available (available on limited sites). They do have a mobile pump out trailer. I would stay here again.

I picked up three local channels but this park is on a fringe which meant that reception was good to poor depending on atmospheric conditions. Our site was open so that Satellite worked. Other sites are not so open. We camped at Cooperstown Shadow Brook Campground in a Motorhome.

Have camped at other campground at Cooperstown. This is certainly the best one. Very clean. Within 15-20 minutes of Baseball Hall of Fame. Owners friendly. Will stay here again. We camped at Cooperstown Shadow Brook Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a strange park and I guess it’s OK for people from this area for lots of them are seasonal. However, it is not a park like we are used to and like to stay in. They say they are the highest rated park in Cooperstown but that doesn’t say much. Roads through the park are rough and narrow and wind all over the place as there is no rationale to the way the sites are laid out. Our site was a pull in and back out. If you want 50 amp service you can have no sewer. We took 30 amp service so we could have sewer as we were here for a week. So then you have to watch what electrical stuff you use. You are expected to separate your trash between trash and recycle. You can’t use your on board washer/dryer and their laundry sucks. There are only 3 washers and dryers. The washers don’t spin the clothes well at all. Only one of the dryers goes for over 30 minutes so you have to dry everything twice so it ends up costing $4 a load to do yours clothes. Also, the hot water in the laundry is not really very warm, much less hot. I rinsed our vacuum bucket and filter and all I used was hot water and it never got hot. There is no AT&T service as we are in a deep valley. Their WiFi does work pretty well and is accessible at the far end of the park where we were. But we mostly used our Verizon WiFi that had 4g LTE service. When there are lots of people in the park water flow decreases dramatically. Another thing,we also could not pick up a NOAA Weather station on our weather radio. We were only here for the Baseball Hall of Fame and were done with that after 3 days and wondering why in the world did we pay for a week. Fuel stations are 11 miles or more from the park and eating places the same except for KCs a little over a mile from the park which was OK but nothing to write home about. We did have a nice shade tree. We have no need to be back here. We camped at Cooperstown Shadow Brook Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice lightly wooded campground set around a small pond. Very peaceful setting. Very narrow, winding gravel access roads with mostly level gravel sites, but they lead everyone to their site. We had no problem with a 37' motorhome, but we did drop our toad at the office. Power ok (only 30A), did not use water or sewer, Wi-Fi is satellite based with limited free time each day (option to purchase additional time), good Verizon cell signal with good hotspot performance. No on board washer / dryer usage, but they do have a laundry. Do Not come in via NY 10 from I-90 - extremely tight quarters going through Canajoharie; NY 28 from I-90 has very steep grades (9%); US 20 from I-88 has a low clearance bridge - supposedly 12' 8". We will consider other options when next in the area mainly due to the quality of roads leading from the interstates. We camped at Cooperstown Shadow Brook Campground in a Motorhome.

Park is very clean and owners are very helpful. Many of the sites are private and large. Sites are also grass and gravel, but are level. We camped at Cooperstown Shadow Brook Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Shower heads were bad with only warm water. Bathrooms were nice as well as the showers. Showers were separate for privacy, the staff were very friendly. Site is very wooded, however with no cable or satellite. We camped at Cooperstown Shadow Brook Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Great, responsive, new owners. When there was a problem the owner came out and spoke to all effected campers. This was a very hot time(unusual for them). The place shows that the owners care and are working to make this campground not only good, but great. We camped at Cooperstown Shadow Brook Campground in a Motorhome.

I live nearby so we often vacation at Shadow Brook. It's always a great getaway. Since we tent, it's important for us to stay somewhere that has clean restrooms and showers. ShadowBrook never disappoints. We have met a lot of great people staying there and we now try to coordinate our visits! We are planning on going back again and again. We camped at Cooperstown Shadow Brook Campground in a Tent.
