This KOA is the most friendliest place to stay. There is a ton of things for the kids and family to do. It is very clean and the staff is extremely friendly. From the time you check in until the time you leave, they are very eager to make sure your stay is pleasant. We have stayed here many times over the past 3 years, and have always been very happy and can't wait to return. This is a must try for the family: worth every minute. We camped at Herkimer KOA in a Travel Trailer.

First, the good. This park has a lot of sites right on the river, nice setting. Now, the rest of the story. Another KOA that could be much better with a little work. Unpaved roads and dirt site, can you say messy? Some sites do have gravel, why not all of them. The sites are very tight, if we had had neighbors with slides, our awning would have been unusable. Some sewer connections were under the picnic table of the next site. Water quality was good, but the pressure was very low. No escort to site, but they are well marked. Restroom floors were muddy and wet. I doubt the shadow of my rig will darken their driveway again. We camped at Herkimer KOA in a Motorhome.

We stay at KOA's often. This was by far the worst we have stayed at. We pulled into a muddy spot.We asked to move and were charged extra for it instead of having a move out of courtesy. Bathrooms were dirty. The campground very buggy. There is not much here. A nice pool was the only plus. We won't return here. We camped at Herkimer KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is a very nice clean park on the West Canada Creek near Middleville, NY. It is very well kept up and has some great fishing and kayaking on the West Canada. There is also an excellent Restaurant (Cyrstal Chandelier) located across the highway for enjoyable eating. We camped at Herkimer KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This is the worst KOA we have stayed at, ever. We have been camping over 30 yrs and I have never been so upset about a place. This is geographically half way between us and our grandchildren. We get them for a week in the summer. So we stayed here last year, there were flies galore, and we were told this was not the norm. So we reserved again this year, one month in advance. I wanted full hook ups. We get there and they did not have our reservation, and put is in a field, next to a diesel pusher. OMG the smell from that (the black water) was unbearable. We left early. And again the flies. We had made reservations for the next weekend at the same time so we were all set for 2 wks. We get there and they put us in the same spot. I had requested a specific area and was told ok, no problem. The flies were back, and we ended up not staying. I will never go back to this area again and make sure I tell everyone what a lousy place this is. We camped at Herkimer KOA in a Truck Camper.

After reading some reviews on this park we were a bit concerned. Not to worry, we found this park and staff excellent. Had a fair size pull through spot close to pool and playground. The diamond mine was a big hit, and Cooperstown only 40 minutes away, a very scenic drive. If we could improve anything it would be the playground, as its rather old.

We had some problems on initial check-in. We booked through KOA's reservation system and booked a site along the river. When we got there they put us in a new site that is not even on their map. These back up to the large open playing field. Since my reservation confirmation paper from KOA stated that I had a river site, they moved us. Unfortunately, this site had some sewer problems and had backed up recently. The lime around the dump pipe and general area told the story. We did not complain and stayed on this site. On the third day we needed to dump our galley but could not because the dump pipe was plugged. They were very quick to respond on a Sunday evening and fixed the problem quickly. The only other problem I see are the rest rooms. They are old and in need of some general repair. One of the toilets kept clogging up but they said that was going to be fixed. Overall, this is a very nice campground. Large sites that are especially pretty along the river. The staff is nice and attentive to your needs. Please be aware that when you book your site to specify if you want to pull in or back in. If you book a pull in site, you may not be able to get your tow vehicle out.

Went here for the first time last year. Had requested a cable site but was given one without. Registered via website for this year for several trips. When I called to check on the reservation I found that I was not put riverside as requested. The clerk corrected that. I would suggest reserving over the phone so you can confirm things. Other than that it was nice and clean. Friendly. It is a small campground but the stream side sites are lovely. I never saw anything broken down or not maintained. Am definitely going back.

The staff at Herkimer KOA was great. They guided us to our site and made sure we were positioned just right. The Diamond Mines across the street was a great place to visit and really made this campground unique. We camped at Herkimer KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

The Campground was immaculately clean. Services, Staff, Facilities, all were outstanding. The adjacent restaurant was excellent. The price for dinner for two entrees came to less than thirty dollars. The food and service were excellent. The Owners of the campground made themselves known to us, checked on our needs and site, and really made us feel welcome. We only stayed one night as we were just passing through the area but we are definitely returning for a longer stay. We camped at Herkimer KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Park is very convenient to the Herkimer Diamond Mines and major roadways. Sites are very cramped and power poles are shared between sites. One camper will have to back in and the neighbor has to pull in, making it very difficult to position. West Canada Creek was in the back window of our neighbor, but because we had to pull in, we had a view of the construction crews as they were setting up new sites. There was heavy equipment noise all weekend. We had to leave the truck hooked up as we did not have room to pull out from under the fifth wheel and swing the truck out. All in all after the construction is done I am fairly sure that this park will be nice enough other than the parking problems with shared utilities. We camped at Herkimer KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Great campground. As promised. Good clean area. helpful staff. Diamond mine is right across. We did not use the river. Hoopkups were effortless. Easy to navigate. We liked it. We camped at Herkimer KOA in a Motorhome.

My family really enjoyed our stay, at this campground. My only negative, for the whole experience, was that there was no fire ring or picnic table available (do to expanding their campsite). A few of their many positives were: location (right across the road from the diamond mines), the very friendly staff, very kid friendly, and very clean. I would highly recommend visiting the Herkimer KOA in Herkimer, NY. We camped at Herkimer KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Did not like this campground at all. Seasonal sites looked like a run down trailer park! River sites so close we could not open our awning. Huge boulders along roads make it VERY difficult to maneuver in and out of spaces. Will NOT go back! We camped at Herkimer KOA in a Motorhome.

I agree with all of the above positive comments (and none of the negative ones) and would add that sleeping right next to a flowing stream is most restful. However, don?t go there to do email or internet: the WIFI connected for 2 minutes, then quit. Even by relocating to the laundry room as suggested, the signal strength was poor and the network wouldn?t pass any data. (I didn?t ask for a refund of my $5.00 internet fee because it did give me my email during the initial 2 minutes.) This is one of our favourite parks, but sitting in the laundromat and batting flies while their network malfunctions isn?t my idea of a good time. We camped at Herkimer KOA in a Motorhome.
