Nice KOA on the West Canada Creek. Creek was pretty wide, but very shallow Entrance is a "hairpin" turn off the main road followed by a narrow drive down the lane to the office. Not that "big rig" friendly. Park is packed gravel. We had a pull through site that was plenty long enough and right under a gorgeous tree. We had plenty of room to park in front of our coach, as well as behind the coach. Utilities were easily accessible, and relatively modern. KOA is located about 8 miles north of the town of Herkimer, and about 20 miles from Utica. Miner's Table restaurant across from park delivers (we ordered pizza), and the pizza was REALLY good! Although it rained the 2 days we were there, the park drained pretty well with minimal puddling of water. Would stay here again. We camped at Herkimer Diamond KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Did not visit the Herkimer Diamond mine, mainly because they are not true diamonds, rather they are quartz crystal stones. KOA is close to town of Herkimer which has most major food chains, and grocery stores (walmart). Interior roads were easy to navigate after you got past the office.

We had a pull though site for a one night stop. The site was level and everything functioned well. The campground is mostly suited to families with younger children. The pool and river were busy on a hot August day and many of the children were less than supervised which made for a noisy campground. Still, a solid overall KOA experience for our overnight stay. We camped at Herkimer Diamond KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Only stayed one night but we're very impressed by variety available. Lots of beautiful sites from big rig pull throughs to tent sites in own isolated area. Riverside and meadow. Huge variety of kamping kabins with solar powered, observatory, etc. Lots of activities. Float down the river, dig for diamonds, see a movie, pancake breakfast, kids crafts, swimming pool, even a community garden. Site was wide and level with easy in and out. Went to the gift shop, restaurant, and museum which are all part of the resort. Very clean. Delightful stay. We camped at Herkimer Diamond KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This is one of the nicest KOAs we've stayed in. Very pretty park alongside a river. The Herkimer Diamond Mine/Museum is across the street which is interesting and you can mine for Herkimers (actually quartz) if you like to bust rocks with a small sledge hammer. Wi-Fi was smokin', and the staff was very friendly. It's a very pleasant place to visit. Highly recommended. We camped at Herkimer Diamond KOA in a Motorhome.

If there were a 20 on the scale this park would get it. We only intended to stay one night but stayed two because it was so nice. Extremely friendly staff, beautiful surroundings, and lots of amenities. Great place for families. No doubt would return again. We camped at Herkimer Diamond KOA in a Motorhome.

This campground in far from KOA quality. Campground needs much TLC. In many areas, lawn/weed and campsites need maintenance. Many campsites were close together. Some pull-thru sites are available. Our campsite was all mud, unlike many of the other sites which were rock. During a minor rain storm, we had mud flowing through our site down to the river. We watched our doormat float away. DirecTV (free standing satellite) had no issue. Wi-Fi was weak and not reliable. Verizon phones were able to get a weak 4g signal. Electricity at the sites is spotty. There are 2 sites per power post and we lost power twice, which required a reset at the “main” breaker by the office. Campground provides breakfast delivery (prices kinda high) to your campsite. KOA convenience store was available, but pricey. Campground is 10 min. from major grocery store, food and gas stations. The campground is 20 min. from major highway. We utilized this location to take a cruise on the Erie Canal. Campground includes a kid’s playground, pool, laundry, bikes to rent and a Frisbee golf course. A large river flows through this campground, which people were using to float (tube) down and fish. We camped at Herkimer Diamond KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground is beautiful. The site was level, power and water pressure was good. Lots of room between sites and lots of shade. Sites are grass with gravel area for parking. Staff friendly and helpful. The campground is right across the road from the "diamond" mine, but a little out from town. Wi-Fi was only adequate. We camped at Herkimer Diamond KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here for Labor day weekend. When we got here I was not too impressed. We had a site right on the river, which although nice, it was very tight (but doable). Was level but with a tree on our site there was not enough room to put our awning out. The fire ring and table was behind our MH right along the river. They definitely squeeze in the sites along the river that are FHU's. The sites with just E/W on the river, have much more room. The pull through sites are a very nice size and level too. But after being here a day, my initial thoughts have changed. Would love to have this CG closer than the 4 hours it took to get here, we would come back often. Overall nice CG. We would love to come back soon! We camped at Herkimer Diamond KOA in a Motorhome.

Stayed here in the pull though sites which are long on a gravel drive with grass and a few trees for shade. Width was OK, but sites along river were tighter. Walk across the street to the mine where we did find 10 non perfect "diamonds". Well kept and friendly staff. Though didn't tube the river, many were and having a good time. Will return when in the area. We camped at Herkimer Diamond KOA in a Motorhome.

This is not only a beautiful park it is extremely clean. The river running thru the park only added to its beauty. Roomy site, Wi-Fi worked great. Maybe a little out of the way, but well worth the extra drive. I would love to stay here again. We camped at Herkimer Diamond KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Large and nicely laid out campground. Typical KOA, with playground, pool, planned activities, movie nights etc. Plenty of kids having fun. Well maintained grounds, sites a little close but not too uncomfortable. We camped at Herkimer Diamond KOA in a Motorhome.

Excellent campground. Choice of sun or shade. We camped on the river. Beautiful view, diamond mines across road, nice clean quiet park. Clean well maintained bathrooms, showers, pool, tubing available. Level sites. Will def stay here again. Only criticism is wish store had greater selection. It doesn't carry basics like eggs, so had to go into town to get supplies. We camped at Herkimer Diamond KOA in a Motorhome.

Be very specific about your needs and preferences when doing your booking. Hookups (W,E,S) vary from site to site. Some of what seem like premium sites only have W&E. We like everything else about this park. We camped at Herkimer Diamond KOA in a Motorhome.

Our second time here. This time we brought the G'kids and they really enjoyed the many available activities. There's diamond prospecting, river tubing, disk golf, Erie Canal cruising and the Utica Zoo is a few miles away. We did it all and I'm exhausted. In 2009 I chided them for not doing any recycling. Now they've gotten with the program. They even have Kabins that are completely off the grid. All the facilities are neat and clean. The sites on the river bank are where you'll find me when I go back. We camped at Herkimer Diamond KOA in a Motorhome.

Used for an overnight stay . Very disappointed that the 30 amp service measured 105.5 volts . Not good for electrical appliances . Infrastructure needs updating. We camped at Herkimer Diamond KOA in a Motorhome.
