We stayed 1 night and would not stay again unless it was the last resort. Water, electric and sewer worked, but as others have said, the long term residents seem to have it better than the transients. They far out number the overnight people. We were led to our site from the wrong direction. We were expected to make an impossible turn with our dully and 33 foot 5th wheel. Once we got to the site, it was an OK sized pull through on grass. It had rained and the site was pretty squishy. We were able to set up our satellite dish. - RVLive

Only spent 1 night here, mostly seasonal sites. Was probably nice for the seasonals but not very friendly for ones just passing through. - sassy530

Awesome family campground with so much to do, great hosts, who are always there to help make sure you have a great camping experience! It is a pet friendly campground. They are constantly improving the campground. Great fishing awaits from the marina! It is close to shopping too. We have a seasonal campsite and we love it! You can walk around, drive a golf cart, go to the beach. They have restrooms, showers and laundry room. They have a brand new store that has ice cream and a pizza/wing restaurant that delivers. We are there as much as possible. It's our 2nd home! The camp hosts work very hard to satisfy their customers. We are very happy there! We've made many good memories there and look forward to many more! - Fleetwood7

The campground is small, and both parking and driving through are very tight. However, there are a few pull through spots right near the entrance that are easy to get in and out of. There are a lot of seasonal residences, but they are nicely maintained, and not trashy at all. In fact, some of them are pretty fancy. Some yards were cluttered, but with vacation toys, not household junk. The customer service was outstanding. There is wifi for sale at a reasonable rate ($4/3 days) and it worked well most of the time. The verizon signal was strong, ATT non existent. I did not notice the noise mentioned by previous reviewers, but I stayed mid-week, so it may just be that the park fills up on the weekends. There is a nice store on the property. - KAP99

Will never stay there again. Dusty and rough roads. Bare ground from digging sewer lines. Noisy. No quiet times. Reserved for a week but left after one night. Asked for refund and denied. This is more of a seasonal campground and not a RV Park. I do not have a good thing to say about Bedford Creek. - Ron Schweitzer

Beautiful state park right on Chaumont Bay & Long Bay. 88 sites with 30 electric (30 amp). Spacious enough to park across the site to maximize the view and catch the breeze. No privacy but the view makes up for it. Ice and firewood available at the Ranger station. Nice place to kayak and play in the lake. Very family friendly with a very large playground. - Breezy2

This is a great state park! The sites are all grass, some more level than others, and all are very good size. You can back in, pull in, or park cross-wise. We're a 40 ft., 4 slide motorhome; we could have parked it sideways in the site. Electric and non electric sites; water and dump station also available. Restrooms and shower were very clean and lots of hot water. Our Verizon MIFI worked very well, good cell coverage. There is a nice playground for kids, picnic area, boat launch, and fishing from the shore. Fire wood available at the office. We would definitely stay here again. - DiplomatTraveler

A quiet campground located on a scenic peninsula that juts out into the Chaumont Bay of Lake Superior. Most of the sites are open and grassy with a few shaded options for tent campers. All of the site have water views and some water access. A popular fishing destination and only a short drive from several historic towns on Lake Superior. The campground was full the weekend we stayed there, but not all noisy. Clean and well maintained facilities (and recycling) made this a pleasant place to spend the weekend. - watsontravels

We enjoyed the on the beach sites. It's a very well kept campground. - Fleetwood7

We have stayed at Westcott Beach SP twice, both times on the 'plateau', which will be the focus of this review. The plateau area is relatively new, with larger campsites that can accommodate big equipment. While all sites are back-in, they are relatively easy to get your trailer and tow vehicle into. All plateau sites have 40A electric; no full hook-up sites, but there are several locations where you can fill your freshwater tank, including the dump station. As a newer camping area, it features OPHRP's current standard bathroom/shower design, which has two shower stalls on each side (men/women) accessed through the bathroom area, as well as two self-contained handicapped bathrooms with a shower, sink and toilet. Has an outdoor sink, which is handy for washing dishes. The bathroom facilities are well-maintained. As others have noted, the main part of the state park is on the other side of the road; there are additional campsites on that side that are closer to the lake, but they are not as spacious or level as the plateau area sites. Westcott Beach SP has a swimming area, but no camp store or concession stand; the privately-owned Westcott Convenience store is close at hand with firewood, groceries, propane and other camping necessities. Overall, a good experience if you're looking to relax or are visiting Sackett's Harbor or Watertown. - nextcube

This campground provides plenty of activities for family campers. There is a large beach and day use area with a great playground that provides a lot of physical activity for children. There is also a vending machine and arcade building for day use. The campsites are medium size yet some are close to each other. Many sites are RV occupied and tend to block the views, but there are some inner sites for campers using tents. There are several comfort stations providing hot showers as well as potable water stations throughout the campground. There are a few electric sites. Quiet hours are pretty strict and may be enforced by other campers as well as a rare check-up by park officials. This campground is recommended for those looking for a quiet camping experience and an early lights out policy. - User2698

This is a gem of an RV park to be sure. This was our first time here and to the region, so everything was new to us. We stayed here a month in a class A RV in a full hookup 50A pull-thru. The owners live on site and are extremely attentive to their guest's needs and to the overall condition of the park. The sunsets over Lake Ontario at their pergola were a treat as was the entertainers they hired on the weekends. This is a quiet, friendly, adult park. The sites are spacious, plenty of trees and grass and access to the main road is easy. We would absolutely stay here again. - rick r

We had a dilemma on our reservation and they went above and beyond to accommodate us. Very nice couple own and run this small park. Restrooms are clean but small with no real privacy and no area to place clothes and towel, besides floor. Site was level with stone base and grass between lots. Very roomy as well. 17 miles to Watertown for groceries. View of sunsets over Lake Ontario are spectacular. If ever in the area again we would stay here. - Pennylee

We enjoyed staying here and would return, if in the area. The sunsets over Lake Ontario are magnificent - many of those in the campground come to watch the sun go down - a nice moment of community. The grounds are well kept and the seasonal residents do a lovely job of maintaining their little piece of paradise. The new owners have been at it now for about 18 months and seem to be doing well. They're courteous and hospitable. The sites are level, with patio tables on the grass. Utilities are appropriately placed and work nicely. - LFClary

Stayed the week of 4th of July. The sunsets are amazing. Yes there are a few bugs but they weren't biting bugs. We would definitely stay here again. - bthomforde

Very kid friendly, lots for them to do. We did not have any trees and it was very warm while we were there but the sites were good size and very easy to pull in to and set up. - dmlord

"Not ready for business"
Reserved a week , may 14- 21. Campground opened on the 13th. Upon arrival waited without even being acknowledged to check in. Asian lady on phone would not even make eye contact, only when manager came in did someone even speak to me.
Got the site we requested, weather was bad but that is fine.
Cable not working, and unless we stopped and asked at the office, got no info. What we were told is they know it is broke , only part of island did it work on, no ETA for repairs or even suggestion to move to a site with working cable.
Water pressure problems from Saturday on, still not working well on Tuesday. Suggestion was to fill our tanks and use our pump.
Massive issue started on Monday with hordes of some sort of bug, looked like flying ants. Swarms of them all over the island. Could not walk the dog or even be outside without being swarmed. Difficult seeing as you tried to avoid the goose crap all over the campground. Which basically looked like a renovation project gone horribly wrong. Construction material, equipment all over, from large piles of stone to roofing projects half complete.
We pulled out today without even bothering to see about a refund for unused days. Bugs were so bad we drove the car out instead of hooking up to avoid the swarming bugs.
WiFi is free but worthless. You get one hour gratis, but it kicks you off after 10 minutes, and when connected it is extremely slow. We were one of less than 5 people on the entire campground so slowness was not do to heavy traffic.
Gives the area and all KOAs a bad name, won't ever go back regardless of the views. - Bill VDA

Nice enough park, with the only big negative being the price. The sites are very large, and although there are no trees, so no privacy, you are a good ways away from your neighbors. Service was outstanding from the famcamp staff and host, friendly but not knowledgeable from outdoor rec. Unfortunately, you have to deal with both. No wifi, except for sale at outrageous rates, but Verizon works fine. Park is very well maintained. Lots of bike/hike trails nearby. Concrete pad absolutely level. - KAP99

This is for military (including retiree) or eligible DOD civilians only. There are RV 16 sites with one taken by the camp host (very helpful!) and there seem to be a couple of overflow sites that have FHU but not on large space nor with level concrete pad. Spaces are huge with plenty of room for tow vehicle or truck, set up screen room or have a game of croquet. Minimal noise other than standard bugle calls and occasional fly overs by helicopters. Bathhouse was large, clean and convenient. Base does recycling of standard metal, paper, plastic and glass. There are plans to get WiFi in the future, but for now you will need to use the base library (closed on Sunday) or rent "hot spot" from MWR at outrageous price. Over the air TV is minimal; could only get Watertown with two commercial stations (CBS/ABC/Fox) and PBS. Having stayed at other service campgrounds, this one is a bit pricey at $35 given the paucity of amenities. We would stay here again, if in the area. - Too-wow

We are seasonal there. They still have waterfront sights available. Could not believe the view. Fishing is great, watch the big ships, great place. Very hidden and private. Owners are very helpful, they even let us use their boat. Marina there is free to customers. A ++ - campingking

Whomever designed campgrounds in NYS apparently never saw an RV or a campground. Stayed at 1000 Islands State Park on Wellesley Island the night before I stopped here for four days. The paved site at 1000 Island SP was tilted about 7 degrees. The one here was worse. 5 orange blocks under each front wheel didn't even move the bulls eye bubble (site 035).
Did get to move to 029 the next day and lucked out. I think it is the only level site in the park. Site 035 not only was very unlevel, it was a mud hole. One orange block sunk below ground level. The shower houses were circa 1940, definitely in need of an update. That said, they were clean. Roads need a lot of work. Except for the main roads, they were either dirt, narrow and in need of repair with tight turns. Check-in staff was helpful. Other than that, the park is lovely. Treed and open spaces. A variety of options for W/E and basic sites. - eaf14131

This is one of the nicest of the state parks we have visited. The view of the river is excellent, and the park is within easy driving distance of all the area activities. The restroom facilities are being upgraded throughout the park, but the process has not yet reached the waterfront facility. That facility is a bit tired, but well-maintained. The park has a nice marina facility, and fishing boats are available for rental. We have been here four times in the last two years, and we will definitely be back. - Alhub

Great campground. Check-in painless and quick as we had registered online in advance. Our site was long and wide, level, shady. We did not camp on the waterway but very close walking distance. Beautiful sunsets. Busy but not loud. Location perfect to visit area attractions and travel across the bridge to Canada. The bathhouses had individual rooms for showers and bathrooms that were immaculate. We would definitely recommend this campground. - carol d

Campground is on side of hill next to St. Lawrence. Roads are paved, few narrow overnight spots are grass. Many seasonal campers. Had to back out of pull through, couldn't make turns in 37 foot motorhome. Power and water good, cell (AT&T) weak. Campground OK, but probably look elsewhere next time. - kmgulf

The "office" is full of plastic storage bags. The manager did not approach us when we parked in the driveway. We stopped a car leaving the area to get advice on how to get out of this park. The park is on a hill and has few sites available for overnight guests. We used one of them to exit. We cannot recommend this for overnighting. - Yeager

A very small park for RVs in transit. (Apparently four sites on grass only). Almost entirely seasonal and park models. The office is not staffed, but the phone is wireless and answered by the caretaker. Nicely located to Thousand Islands and other great attractions. - consort
