"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

Wow. Park on the lake. Great view. They have entertainment for children in the summer with wonderful staff. Wanted to stay longer, but wife had to leave. Buy your groceries before parking. Long way to store. - NC Travelers

This entire campground is located on an island in Lake Ontario, connected by a causeway, to the mainland. We had a pull in waterfront site on the Henderson Bay side of the island. The view out the windshield was amazing. Sunrise over the bay is beautiful. Pull in sites on the other side of the island overlook Lake Ontario and the sunsets there are spectacular. W/S/E hookups were excellent. Most waterfront sites have two sets of hookups so that if you choose to back in, it works fine. The WiFi is a little quirky, requiring a sign in. Sixty minutes of free service is offered each 24 hours. After that time there are a variety of pay options from one day to seasonal. For some reason, we managed to get by with the free option during our time there.
The route out to the island is in good shape, but it is narrow in spots and has some curves. We had no problem in our 34' class A, and there were many larger coaches and fifth wheels coming and going.
It is quite a jaunt to the nearest shopping (supermarkets, etc) in Watertown, so it is good to plan ahead for that.
This may be the most beautiful location we have camped in, since we had the waterfront site. We would stay here again, if in the area. - demoon

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

This pleasant campground is located on the shores of Henderson Bay, Lake Ontario between the towns of Henderson Harbor and Sacketts Harbor. It has a gazebo for watching the lake, a boat ramp, and a small rocky beach area. The area closest to the shoreline has seasonal folks, and the temporary visitors are placed closer to the road. Our full-service campsite was level and unshaded. The campground is well-maintained. The laundry facilities were excellent. - ShoreXplorers
