We stayed here for Labor weekend 2015. This campground has great potential. The positives are the great big themed pool with snack bar and the sites are spacious and spread out nicely. However the roads are not paved so the dust can be quite unbearable at times especially on very dry days. I have been camping for many years and have never experienced such a dusty campground. This is a new campground so hopefully they will at least pave the main roads soon. The other annoying thing is they sometimes play religious music at the pool, which is fine if that is your thing. The arcade was nice too. A fishing pond would be nice, especially for the price you pay. - Chuck Ct.

Our site was very large and level. Our site was covered with large gravel rocks many with jagged edges. We found numerous pieces of garbage left from other campers that were never cleaned up. The roads were crusher run and extremely dusty. One hour into our stay and everything was covered in dust. The staff pushes the five mile an hour speed limit as they constantly break it themselves. There are no activities during the day other than the pool which is very nice. The camp store was more of a gift shop forcing us to drive to a grocery store for anything we ran out of. The security staff checks your tags entering all day no matter how many times you go in and out, but only till 8:30pm then no one mans the booth until 9:30 the next morning. There is no security at night any where. Our TV was very fuzzy and we were on a full hook up site. Staff told us that's just how the cable here is. The water pressure was very inconsistent as well. Our fire pit was three large rocks standing on end as a family that likes to cook over the open fire it was impossible with this setup. We felt we paid top dollar for a pool and we will not be returning. - Camper Junkie

This park has a very large heated pool with waterslides, nice playground, basketball court, etc. It's all located in one area with all the sites across the road in another section of the park. The sites all seem quite large and level. They have no natural body of water. About a 15 minute ride to Lake George village. A nice clean park that's good for kids. Suprisingly, they do not recycle. - sbradley

Very large sites. Spotless. When an RV leaves a clean-up crew arrives, rakes the site and prepares it for the next camper. As we don't have pets, we like the idea of no pets allowed. This is an extremely well managed facility. - Mike Perrault

This is a truly beautiful landscaped facility, and spotlessly clean. It is a gated community, and we were given a card to access it when coming back in. The two employees we dealt with were knowledgeable and courteous, even though we were arriving shortly before the office was to close for the night. Yes, there seem to be a lot of rules regarding guests (we didn't have any), but there are quiet hours during which we observed it to be just that - quiet! Our stay was a stopover on our way elsewhere, and our only regret is that we didn't have more time to spend at the campground itself. We would definitely come back for a longer stay! - Momcat49

Nice quiet park. Dirt site with lots of trees which was fairly muddy during our stay. Fairly level site. Many permanent trailers in the campground. Restrooms were nice, and the trash cans were conveniently positioned. Full hook-up with cable. - Alicenpete

We go every year. This is the only campground directly on the Lake near Lake George Village. We reserve months beforehand and get one of the largest spaces which is in walking distance of a restaurant, deli and liquor store. Usually very quiet and the staff could not be more helpful. They even allowed us to stay 3 hours past checkout so that our grandson could swim a little more. Although it was brutally hot during the first week of July, the lake did the trick in refreshing us. My grandchildren also love camping here. - cancellm

State operated campground convenient to resort village of Lake George (1mi), plus there is a shuttle during the summer to take you to the village ($1). Some sites have long a walk downhill, which means you have to climb back up, to a beach and lake view area. Lake is the major attraction, and it's fun to watch the paddle boats and float the lake. Best sites are in the lower numbers on the lake side as this campground spans both sides of a main road. Facilities are somewhat aged but maintained the best as possible by staff. Mid-week stays are the best, especially during July and August when they are packed. Most sites are heavy pines, and there is one very open field-type area. Not recommended if inclement weather, especially with kids. - Charlie S

Nice state park relatively clean. This park could easily have gotten a better score. However, beach is extremely small and only chest deep. The west side of the park should only be used for tents only. We were assigned a site here site was barely big enough and road ways are too narrow. The east (lake) side seemed much more accommodating and if we stay here again that were we will stay. - cbshea02

Really just an outstanding park in all respects. We were there on a weekday where the park was 2/3 empty to when it was completely full on a holiday weekend. It has become an annual trip for us because the park is so nice and there are lots to do around town. The high price is worth it, not just for the amenities but it keeps the campers a little more high scale. We were surrounded by nice families with small kids. - klinner

This campground qualifies as a resort or destination CG. The wealth of amenities available and the "upscale" ambiance of the various buildings and areas would explain the very high cost of a night's stay here in the peak season. It is a sprawling facility and it is evident that revenue over the years has been reinvested in the physical plant and amenities. Check-in was quick & easy and office staff were courteous & efficient. The CG store has ample inventory of just about anything you might need. CG map is easy to follow so there was no trouble getting to our nearly-level site. What you may not get is isolation from loud music provided by nearby campers. WiFi was free but sporadic. At times it would be fine then other times it would be very slow or pages would not load at all. - RamWagon

This park is very nice and well maintained. It looks like they do plenty of upgrades yearly. The tennis courts and basletball court just got a makeover with new fencing being installed right now. All of the walking/biking trails are paved and you can get many miles in the park alone. They also link to the city trails just outside the park. There are numerous other activities for all to enjoy in the campground. The rustic setting was also very quite.
We had a site that was more than long enough for our camper and truck. It was buffered from our neighbors sites with trees and shrubs.
We would definitely use this campground again. - John Borajkiewicz

Big Rigs, be careful about where they want to park you. If you are over 32', I would definitely ask to be placed in sections A, H or I. If they put you in another section, go check out the site before you agree to that spot. Walk to it, if you have to. The park map is terrible. You can get lost very easily, if you have never been in the park before. The park needs to provide escorts for people that have never been in the park. The campground map is that bad. We were lucky and got a pull thru site H-21. It has a lot of tree canopy, so if you don't want pine needles on your rig, ask for section A. Our site was very flat. They were having trouble with a water leak the first 2 days, but it got fixed on Monday. They wanted to put us in T-20, but we are pulling a 38' 5th wheel and when we went to look at it, it would have been very difficult to get into and almost impossible to get out of. To get to the site, was up a steep hill, (a short one, but steep) a sharp left turn (it would have been difficult to make that turn) then into the site that they claim is a pull thru, but if someone is camping in front of you, it is no longer a pull thru. Just be careful and look at the site before you pull your rig to it. Otherwise, this is a fantastic campground. There are a lot of seasonals, but they are all friendly. The staff in the office is wonderful. They are very knowledgeable about the area and there is a lot of information in the office. If is within walking distance to the trolley stop. The trolley will take you to Lake George, the outlet mall and even farther north and down into Glens Falls. Saratoga Springs is about 30 minutes away. The Adirondack mountains are close. Lake Placid is about 45-55 minutes and a beautiful drive. The campground has a nice pool (lots of children in summer months), a gaming room, a small laundry. They had some activities. The store at the office had a lot of offer. The fire wood was high at $7.00 a bundle and not seasoned. - Cliff-fa-fa

Just a one night stay. This is the closest park to town and the shuttle/trolley picks you up & takes you to town or the beach or the massive outlets for a buck right in front of the park. Full blown amusement park next door and nice pool so this is definitely kid friendly.
Good cable and spotty wifi. Our site was narrow and uneven and part mud/part gravel. Bathrooms were clean if not modern.
Would stay here again for the convenience. - Camaraderie

Our worst experience in over a year of full-time travel. The rudest staff that we have ever encountered. We made reservations 9 months in advance for July 4th weekend for a pull- through site with full hook-ups and 50 amp service. When we checked in, we were told that we would need to disconnect our tow car and were then taken to a site that was too short for our 40 ft motorhome without the toad in an open parking area next to the basketball court with a foot of dead grass between sites and not a tree or landscaping in sight. We then realized that it was a 30 amp site. When we contacted the office, they blatantly said that it was our fault, we must have not asked for a bigger site or 50 amp service. Their "deluxe RV sites" are any sites with electric and sewer. Amazingly, not one person apologized. We demanded a refund and left as we would not pay $61 for that dump. The roads are narrow, the sites are packed. This is the first park that I have rated less than a 6. Please go somewhere else and don't give these people more business. - Bunci

State operated park gets high marks because of its proximity to the resort Village of Lake George with all attractions and many restaurants in walking distance. Two beaches, lake cruises, and fort tours similarly close by. Park staff is friendly and some sites can accommodate larger RVs. In the center of town, but once there you would never know it since park is surrounded by pines on three sides. Great, inexpensive location to spend a couple of days taking advantage of all the Village has to offer. - Charlie S

This place is a major dump. We stayed in the overflow area. The sites were un-level and the electric did not work at all. The restrooms were in major need of updating and the pool (if you can call it that) was full of pond scum. I can't believe this place and if we were not staying with a pre-arranged group I would have moved the day we arrived. So give it a rating of -1. No way would we stay here again. - MovinOnDownTheRoad

My family had a decent stay here at this campground. Nothing in particular was wrong with the campground, it was just that this campground is located very close to a main road so there is a lot of noise from the traffic. We also did not find it to be as much fun as some of the other parks that we have visited. - motorhomeman

The campground is conveniently located between exits 19 and 20 off I87 on route 9. Large sites. The interior roads are dirt as are the campsite pads. This is an older campground with plenty of trees. Larger rigs would probably wish to stay up front in the grassy field. We did see some large fifth wheels and large motorhomes in the treed sites but they were carefully maneuvering through the trees. The campground is within walking distance of the Six Flags Great Escape Amusement Park. (1/2 mile.) Also, there is outlet shopping nearby as well as restaurants and a Walmart. The downside to the campground is the road noise from the interstate. You can see the cars and trucks through the trees. Also, the 30 amp electrical is weak and the power browned out as well as cut out several times over the weekend. - PENNY

Large rig friendly, we had a nice pull-through site with full hookups. Cable, 30 and 50 amp, sewer, water. No WiFi, and Verizon signal was poor. Fire pit was very nice on a cement pad. Site was not that level since we were on a hill. The main issue we had was the site was loose sand. It would be much better with crushed stone or gravel. My truck sank in as did the leveling pads. The pool area was very nice as was the camp store. Very few organized activities for the kids. Great location, though, which is why we chose this location. 5 minutes to Lake George and one hour to Ft. Ticonderoga. If you need a nice campground to stay at while visiting Lake George, this is a good option. - Pshaine

Beautiful, quiet park tucked away in the woods. Close to the highway, but noise isn't noticeable in the RV. Would have rated it a 9, but leveling required 20 minutes, 4 layers of pads and a shallow trench on the opposite side. When leaving we had to back out of our pull-through site because the road in front had a 3-foot pitch and I worried about scraping bottom. Roomy sites with lots of foliage, nice pool, store, cable and trail. Showed a kid's movie every night. Verizon signal was good but with intermittent bandwidth issues, AT&T weak. Dirt roads kicked up some dust. Lovely and convenient location; we would definitely come back. - Keeping up with the Joneses

A very nice campground. Yes, hilly, but very scenic. There are a number of sites that seem to be seasonal. Our site, w/e/s, was #83 and we kind of felt it was one of the best sites. So private, and shady. We towed in our 30 foot TT and didn't have any issues navigating the hills or turns. I think they are cognizant of the areas trailers/rvs can't negotiate easily. The pool area is clean and relaxing. The kids enjoyed that very much along with the game room. It is convenient to Lake George yet nice in that you can get away from everything and relax at the campground. We could hear the highway from our site and realized the bridge was very near. Overall really didn't bother us but you can hear it. No complaints! - JessieJake

So very disappointed. We planned for 10 days here, but when we arrived they had us in a site we could not fit in. The one other site that was available had electrical issues and our power management kept kicking our electric off due to low voltage.
The maintenance fellow came and confirmed that there is indeed low voltage in this campground and that one of the boxes actually caught fire from overheating.
There are 575 sites here and they have packed them in here regardless of the electrical issues.
Again, very disappointed as we had hoped to visit this area as we have never been here. Getting a reservation last minute in this area is next to impossible.
The roads are narrow and trees on both sides, even still we would have liked to have stayed.
If you are not a kid person, this is not the campground for you as they are everywhere. Nice to see them outside playing.
We left after one night so we cannot comment on the amenities. Without electric in an all electric unit, we cannot stay and risk ruining our rv.
If you have a smaller unit with no management system you may love this place, bigger 50amp units beware. - buffy

Did not care for the campground. We arrived Midweek and were put in the back away from all facilities and activities, close to highway. There were plenty of open sites with shade but suspected that they were reserved for the weekend so I did not complain. Noticed when we left that some of those same sites were still available, I wondered why we were placed in such a bad location. Received an email stating I should have called instead of using online registration. I think they had an idea of where I was going regardless. They also said I should have requested another site but that means repacking. I just drove 5.5 hours to get here, now I have to repack and move because they couldn't give me a better site in the first place?? - SLSAntigua

Unfortunately, we did not have a good experience at the Lake George Escape RV Park. We made reservations three weeks in advance, and were careful to tell the representative that our Fifth Wheel is 13' 4" tall, and 41 feet long. We were assured that we would not have any issues (when speaking with the person making the reservation and a follow-up call to the campround office), with the interior roads or trees/branches, and that the site assigned to us, was long enough for our RV and Truck. Our first indication of trouble, was when we followed the campground's website directions from Route 87.... One of the roads had a weight capacity of 5 Tons (we assume that most full timer's rigs exceed that). Also, just before the campground entrance, is a bridge underpass with no height signs. In order to safely pass under, we had to travel very slowly on the shoulder, and still were close to hitting our roof air conditioner. When we went to the check in, and mentioned the road weight restriction and underpass, the employees indicated that we were only the first customers to mention the road weight restriction, and the second to mention the underpass height. Neither of these issues were mentioned in their directions. We asked to be taken to see our site, before we drove in with the rig. I asked what height the tree branches were cut to, and the employees did not have an answer. The tree branches that were over the interior road were at height of 10 feet (our estimate). The employees did try to find another site that could accommodate our rig, but the roads to this second site, also had low hanging branches, and the road width was tight. We observed that most of the rigs that were in the campground were significantly lower in height in shorter in length. We were refunded our money, and left through the exit (which also had one low hanging branch). - 2FullTimersinaFifth

We booked this park because their sister park King Phillip had no sites for our size motorhome. It is a nice park heavily wooded so it is nice and shady. The woods do not allow for satellite signal to be picked up, maybe at a few sites but not for the most part regardless of what they said when we made the reservations. They have cable with an extensive amount of channels. They have WiFi. We had no problem getting cell service. They have a pool. The road into the park is okay but once you enter the campground area there are more pot holes then road. The water pressure was sometimes okay other times nonexistent. We would stay here again but would also be open to looking to stay elsewhere in the area. - Connie's Co-Owner

Decent private campground located on a busy road nest to McDonalds in Warrensburg. It is not a resort but they did have a small pool and some activities on the weekend we were there. As a previous review mentioned the waterfront sites were squeezed tightly together. I have seen worse however. We chose to park our truck next to the motorhome because we had our kayaks in it and wanted them close by. This made a small site smaller since the tail gate of the truck was backed up to our awning. Positives: Brand new shower house with unisex shower rooms each with a shower, sink and toilet. You can kayak directly from your site. If you sit behind your RV on the river bank, you can forget how crowded the campsite and campground are and enjoy watching the river, ducks and kayakers go by. To maintain 110 for our A/C we had to turn off everything including putting the fridge on propane. Verizon worked well, we had 4G and our hotspot worked as well. If you want a convenient campground near the Lake George attractions, and don't mind crowded sites this campground is an okay choice. It also is about $30/40 cheaper per night than some of the resort campgrounds in the area. - PENNY

My review is based on a holiday weekend stay, things may be different (spaced out sites, etc.) during a slower time. Overall the park itself is large with several wooded areas for both campers and tent sites. The location is on a busy road with what we felt was a tight turn to enter the park. Departing, we had to wait for quite some time before we were able to safely make a left hand turn with the camper behind us. For it being right off the road though it was quiet. The pool was always crowded (because of the holiday?) but they do have access to the Schroon River and a swimming area there too. They had seasonal sites there but nothing I felt was excessive. There were several (very close to each other) back-in sites along the river and most of the interior pull-throughs were for the larger 5th wheels. The back-in sites along the river were dirt, very fine dusty / sandy dirt, however the site was level. The weather was nice while we were there but expect a mud pit if there's a good rain. Activities for the kids? There was a basketball court, few swings, arcade, and I'm not sure about the mini-golf. The mini-golf looked like its seen better days, I don't think it was in service when we were there, the holes weren't properly marked and I never saw anyone playing. The site had cable with a variety of channels and WiFi. We didn't bother too much with the Internet, maybe to check email here and there. They only allowed each device to be connected for 60 minutes and with it so bogged down and slow it wasn't worth the hassle. The staff was friendly, guided you to your site, and ran the small store. Even though they're on the river, the store (at the time of this review) did not sell live bait. - AJay
