2 Parks near Henderson Harbor, New York
Aug 2015 - $33.00
The very best thing about this park is the scenery. No matter where you are, you're waterfront! Our spot was "Lake View" (as opposed to 2 grades of premium lake view) which means we had 2 rows of RVs between us and the lake. But that left PLENTY of lake view and at a much better price than the more expensive premium spots that would have come in at about twice the price.
This was our first KOA and the fairly solid reputation of the chain was maintained here. Lots of activities for adults and kids including a huge inflatable bounce contraption that was actually kind of fun, even for this 48 year old body!
The grounds are very well maintained and clean. They do morning trash pickup site-by-site which I thought was nice, but by design trash bins did not seem readily apparent for self-disposal. When we didn't want to wait for the morning pickup we walked over to the islands trash area. I'm sure there's a reason for this but I don't know what it is.
This was actually the first time we never left the park during our entire stay. Watertown is about 15 miles away and there are a couple of tiny towns a little closer. There's a store on-site with basics as a convenience and there's a pretty good pizza place that regularly delivers to the island.
I would rate it 10/10 if the value was a bit better. KOAs are known to be a little pricy and while there was decent value in our 3rd tier spot, we'd have preferred a premium spot but couldn't stomach the premium price. We will definitely stay here again though! - Outlaw Pilots

We stayed here after realizing Memorial Day Weekend was early this year and wanted to stay in the western New York area. We were very pleased to find they had plenty of spots available, especially during the kickoff weekend to the camping season. The sites are open, no shade, but during that time of year a little sun made it nice and warm. All of the hookups worked well and the site was level, no need for blocks. The view of Lake Ontario was beautiful and made it nice to walk the dogs with a wonderful view. We did arrive a few days before most and noticed the grass at our site had not been cut. We saw all the sites around us that were open get cut, but not ours. After I asked the office about cutting our lawn, they sent someone to take care of it, but it was done so quickly, they might as well have not even showed up. We were not able to use the fire ring at our site because it was so close to the RV, so we wound up using one at the empty site behind us. The biggest downside was the may flies. They hit their peak during the time we were there and probably counted in the millions. The don't bite, but the second you open your door, they start to swarm in. I spent each night vacuuming them off the ceiling and lights. Aside from that it was a very enjoyable stay. We would definitely stay again, but outside of the may fly season. - pfogleboch

We registered online with KOA;, however, when we arrived they told us they wouldn't honor the space we reserved. We had wanted a lake view and that seemed possible seeing as though it was an island. The young man working the desk was kind and wanted to please us, but the older grumpy man must have outranked him. We ended up in a corner space that had an abandoned building on one side and a stand of unkempt trees behind us. It felt like we were outcasts. The mayflies are bad and get into everything! As far as food and supplies, bring it in with you, because there is nothing nearby! However, it was one of the most beautiful places we've ever stayed. - Slittle

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. - User3302
