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

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 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
