20 Parks near Keeseville, New York
Jun 2011 - $19.00
Rate is combination of Passport America and full price. This park is in a nice setting on the Ausable River. River sites nearer the entrance get a lot of noise from a nearby bridge. Many of the choice river sites are taken up by seasonal campers. We were here over the 4th and so the campground was maxed out. Our electric protection device (SG) kept shuting down due to campground electrical issues. After the holiday it worked but did kick out a couple of times. A camper next to us had air conditioner problems and during a discussion with him I tested his outlet. Hot and neutral were reversed on his site. I spoke to the owners of the park about this and when we left 3 days later they had done nothing about it. Bathrooms and showers needed much more attention both during and after the holidays. When they cleaned the bathrooms it was very superficial. The owners were always pleasant, nice people. If we had no other choice we would stay here again for an overnight or a couple of days. - srfnut

This place was a fine place to stay. Easy to get to off the highway, near a good local diner, and a variety of sites to choose from. We stayed here twice on this trip, going and coming, and we had a decent river side site the first time but the second time, although we could have had a river front site, there was a mound of soil at the back of the site toward the river, which prevented us from backing our trailer into the site. It would have worked with a shorter trailer or tent trailer, but not for ours nearing 30' plus our truck. So we asked to move to a pull through site and they were fine with that. That site was level and it was very quiet in that area. Many big rigs here which usually means a quiet night. The site we were first given was beside a large group with trailer and several tents and many vehicles too, so we sort of had an idea that it would not be a quiet spot. So happy to be able to move to a pull through. The park is neat and organized well and had a nice clean pool. We didn't use it but it looked very nice. - A & E

This is a campground you should give a try. Nice people run it and is laid out logically with many riverfront sites. Enjoy! - LarryJohnston

I camped at other campgrounds with all the bells and whistles then here. I enjoyed this trip more, nothing over-the-top but a nice campground. The adventures of the chasm directly across the street is why we will return. Unlike any experience in NY State. Highly recommended!! - RiggsandClem

Very old & musty bathrooms. Showers were tiny, but fairly clean. Very hilly & unlevel lots, but nice & shady. Okay for overnight after touring the gorgeous Ausable Chasm. - Jeter1954

Formerly a KOA. Needs some work, but it was ok to use as a base for visiting the local area. Stayed five nights. Site was surrounded by tall pines, but was open enough to see the stars at night. It was all grass, fairly level, w/picnic table and fire ring. Campground shower area was private with each of the shower areas having its own entry door. Didn't see or hear anything about the thefts as mentioned in the previous post. We were near the front of the campground and therefore close to the office so that may have provided some protection. Interior roads were rough in some areas, but not bad enough to do any damage. - JWEngle

When we pulled in and went into the office, we were surprised, it is small and overwhelmed with 'stuff.' But the woman behind the desk seemed to have it under control. She was friendly and courteous and a gentleman stepped into the office to help her. Our site was huge, more room than previous campgrounds we've stayed at. Cable TV had more than enough channels and our Wi-Fi hookup, although 'low,' was adequate to get online and do whatever you had to do. We were next to the highway which didn't bother us and the occasional train went by. I was disappointed that I couldn't actually see any as they passed by. The trains weren't that bothersome, either. In all, we enjoyed our stay - Ausable Chasm which is about four miles south is an awesome place to visit. - Patches

Owners were very friendly, but was disappointed when a cigarette was lit while we were signing in. Sites were large, dirt and grass with concrete patio slabs. Our site was was not even close to level and trash was strewn around behind our campsite. Campground is rundown and needs some work, especially the roads. Restrooms, showers and laundry were extremely rundown and dirty. Cable TV and internet were good. We camped here three nights. - golplt

Sites are reasonable size and services generally functioned as advertised. Office is old, cramped, unclean, and filled with cigarette smoke. The park is noisier than we like. Pool filled on the weekends with children, highway noise behind our site, frequent trains day and night, and weekend karaoke music until 11 pm loud enough to hear inside every rig across the entire park. Laundry facilities consist of one working washer and a dryer that did not dry anything. Laundry building and restroom/bathhouse are old and deteriorated, open to all the elements and bugs, chicken-wire doors, if any, open wood slat floors, leaking water, dirty/moldy showers, no light or A/C in laundry building except for open door. Site electric posts have no fuse, an obvious safety concern when plugging in since we couldn't turn it off first. Will not stay here again. - revs2010

Nice very quiet private campground. Sites are on the larger size for a private campground. No screening between sites. Staff was helpful and friendly. Laundry facilities are modern and clean. Looks like about half the sites are occupied by seasonal campers, but they are all very nice and a quiet group. Utilities are good and very good wifi worked at our site. We would definitely stay here again. - User3589

This was a decent place to stay for the month we were in the area. The monthly rate was reasonable. While we didn't find the people of New York to be particularly friendly, the gentleman that manages this park is an exception once you've been there a while. Most of the sites are occupied by seasonal/annual campers so as is often the case, weekends were busier and a bit louder. Lots of shade on each site. We were happy for a larger outdoor rug as the sites are quite sandy. We would stay here again if we were in the area. - The Shaws

Place was OK but older and run down. Staff was OK. If first impressions mean a lot, this one didn't do too well. Front office and store old and cluttered, not real organized. Plenty of hats and T-Shirts but overpriced at $17.00. Not sure why I didn't really care for the place but one issue for me was the roads around the campground. They were full of pot holes. The roads needs an overhaul with lots of gravel. The patchwork and repairs haven't worked too well. We moved over to maybe the only site that has satellite access for TV (#39). Small swimming pool looked good. We have a nice view of the pond. Not sure we'd be back. - rwarner22

This is one great place if you are into nature as the park is on Lake Champlain and the Ausable River. Our site (#19) backed up to the lake with a view of Burlington, VT. The lake front has two beach areas and plenty of fishing, lake and river. The bad part for some of the campers was the Sat. night storm took down some trees and all the power lines, so campground was unattended with no water or toilets and showers. This was not a problem for us as we are self contained. The good thing was when rangers showed Monday morning and didn't charge us and refunded everyone in the park who had paid. Great state conservation area. Sites are very large and some will hold up to 40' RVS. - Mikeeg

We selected this site on the internet using the Reserve America web site. The web site indicated that the site we chose would take a 35ft motorhome. We were very disappointed with the site. Just enough room for the motorhome and not much room for anything else. And we were next to a swamp and almost living on top of our neighbors - who had two tents and lots of visitors. We booked for three nights but stayed only one. We tried to get another site but the campground was full and the campground staff were not very interested. We will not be staying in this campground again. We stayed in site 100. - sandgropers

We stayed here for seven days to visit family in Vermont. Although we have a motorhome we were put in a site near tents and small travel trailers. This was because they had no other sites available for us. We had only electricity and water at the first site, which was mostly dirt with a small amount of gravel. After the weekend we were able to move to a much nicer site site 115 with full hookups, more private, and up against the trees away from everyone. There are also other sites with full hookups near the main gate in the single digits, but all the traffic flows past them. The site location had a little grass and was quite unlevel. There are no pads in the park.
We were here seven days and got to know the park and the area very well. The bathrooms are clean daily but not well. The light fixtures are filthy and full of bugs. The sink in back of the restrooms where you wash your dishes had many spiders hanging over them, but when I mentioned it to the office they quickly cleaned it. The staff in the office is mostly college kids and sometimes they get the job done and sometimes they don't.
The beach is well-groomed and well taken care of, there is no trash, it is clean and there are outdoor showers as well as bathrooms. The bike path is near the campground but it is unlike any I have seen in the sense that people don't think that they have to move over for bikers. This is definitely a bike path not a pedestrian Trail. I am used to fast paced bike paths, this is not one, so just be prepared for a slow pace. - KSum

This will be our go to campground when traveling this area. Clean site, short walk to lake Champlain beach, 2 miles to Church Street Marketplace, Hannaford grocery about 2/10 mile away. - eliterror
Jul 2016 - $45.00
The RV sites are dirt and not level, but usable. There are no hookup sites that are nicer, but more crowded and also some tent sites. The beach area is beautiful and the town rustic. Staff were very friendly and it rates fairly well as public parks go, with many vacationing families. The beach is quite nice and well cared for, but water is too cold for a Texan. We are not sorry that we stayed here but won't likely return. - RV Camper1

Camp sites very close together. Fire pits were moved close together and very heavy to relocate. If I had left my fire pit where it was my slide would have been over my neighbor's which would not have been acceptable especially to their kids who wanted to toast marshmallows.
Could only get water and electric (for $48.00 per night) and electric kept shutting off. Called for help but no one arrived - finally took off surge protector and power stayed on.
Laundry was old - one dryer was taken apart, hand dryer in bathroom did not work and bathroom was not particularly clean.
Front desk personnel was pleasant and tried to assist with problems but apparently owner does not have a great deal of interest in fixing things. - Sheila123

I did this review largely to warn folks about the somewhat awkward hookups. For every four campsites (two and two back-to-back) there are two power pedestals grouped together. Each pedestal has one 15A outlet, one 30A outlet and one 50A outlet. I guess the hope is that half of the users will require 50A service and half will require 30A service. Otherwise, a lot of 50A-30A adapters will be needed. Also, there are four water spigots at each set of power pedestals. Sewer connections are about thirty feet from the pedestals. Long story short, we needed 50ft of power cord and 50ft of water hose to reach our trailer. Although the setup is awkward, the price is high and the bathrooms are old and not clean we would camp here again because this campground is 3 miles from the Causeway rail-trail (across part of Lake Champlain) which should not be missed. - geysergazer

88 Mallets Bay Campground Rd, Colchester VT 05446. Across the road from Lake Champlain. If you want shade, this is the place. Large, mature shade trees close to the roads can make parking difficult. Sites are close together, about 15 feet apart. Discount 10% with AAA card. We were there on a holiday weekend; felt very crowded. - meanderingman

This is my new place to stay. Everything about it was wonderful: large sites looking at Lake Champlain, beautiful pool, nice rec room, bands, dances, catered dinners, spotless bathrooms, friendly staff, excellent camp store, convenient to everything, great place for your dog. There is also a nine hole, par 3 golf course in the park. - mary mcmoo

We only stayed 1 night prior to a rally in Essex Junction. Park was clean and checkin was efficient, we were led to our site. A word of caution for booking reservations online, make sure you know what your getting, we thought we had booked a FHU but only had water and electric and needed to hit the dump station on the way out prior to several days at a rally with no waste hookup. Using the dump station requires navigating around the park a little which was a little tight in a 41' coach but not awful. Our water/elec site did have a nice view of the lake. This park is very handy to Essex Junction and Burlington areas. We were only there 1 night so didn't use any other services. - HomeOnWheels_US

The park was nice and grew on us as we stayed. It is very convenient for visiting Burlington, VT, or for enjoying the Lake Champlain Islands. There were numerous amenities and some activities but we did not partake of any. There were some new sites that have water views that I would have preferred but they were not indicated on the website camp site map. If we return we would request one of those sites (AB013 - AB019).
This park is mostly seasonal and owner owned sites, but we felt welcome and enjoyed ourselves.
If you like antique tools, there is a museum onsite of 2800 tools and domestic items that were collected by the owners father and are nicely displayed in a restored barn. Well worth looking at. - Randy & Sharon

The park is beginning to show some wear and tear. I can imagine in the 80's it was quite lovely. The couple that owns it are delightful. Many of the campers are seasonal Canadians who must come down frequently on the weekends from the Montreal area. It was extremely quiet during our stay during the weekdays. Sites are large with electric (plenty of amperage), sewer (worked perfectly) and water. There are several 150 square-foot cabins for rent too.
The location is nice if you are interested in getting into the High Peaks to do some hiking or sight seeing.
The campground has a little camp store that has some odds and ends, ice and firewood.
We have a well-equipped fifth wheel and I'm not big on amenities, so for us this was quite lovely. Don't expect luxury and you'll be just fine. - Johnboronkay

This is not a resort but if you want a true, quiet and peaceful experience under the tall Adirondack pines this is the place for you. Located only 5 easy miles from Exit 32 off I-87/Adirondack Northway. Nice pool, free WiFi, friendly owners. Pull-through & back-ins, FHU. Laundromat and propane sales. Small parts store. Nice tenting area as well.We stayed the entire Summer Season but rate reflects Passport America price per night. - Adirondack Jack

We had an excellent service, we liked the smell of the pines, it was quiet at the beginning of the season as we went during the week, we appreciated everything and we want to go back. We were there for 3 days, the cabin, the bathroom and everywhere was clean. The cabin is in front of the bathroom. My wife and I liked the cabin with the small fridge the microwave and the coffeemaker included. We played at the rebuild minigolf, it was fun and it is at no cost. The owners, a couple are friendly and do all they can to please the customers. - rfq0705

Camped in a 35 foot fifth wheel on site 2 that has glimpses of lake views. This is an adult-only RV park. Site is level, wide, grassy, with well trimmed trees providing some shade on site. Packed gravel beneath rig spot. Plenty of room for truck. Lanes are hard packed, dustless stone. There is no WiFi, although can walk to owner's home, stand outside to get weak connection. No cable TV & electric is 30 amp. About 8 over the air antenna stations, 1 of which is French language & 3 are PBS. Good AT&T cell coverage. Bath house is very minimal, but clean. Two shower stalls & shared dressing room are very cramped; coin-operated with one quarter providing 4 or 5 minutes of water. Laundry house has 1 washer & 1 dryer. There is a ledge rock "beach" from which it is possible to swim in lake, place small lawn chairs, & offload kayaks. Campground is very well-kept, pretty, dark at night & quiet (light sleepers may be disturbed by the 24-hour chugging ferry boats that dock close to the campground about every 20 minutes). Unlike stated in review from a previous year, campfires are now allowed. Check or cash only payment. Staff is pleasant. - Scottsdale RVers

This is a medium-sized campground right on Lake Champlain, with about half (or more) of the sites for seasonal or full-timers, leaving maybe 10-20 sites for transients like us. In terms of idyllic beauty, there is nothing better: the blue mountains, the ever moving water, sailboats, ferry, kayakers and stunning sunsets. The grass is in great shape and you can walk barefoot. The roads are narrow but no potholes, and the whole campground is spotlessly clean. The campground is very quiet and the neighbors are all very nice. The owner (JC) will do his best to accomodate your wishes if possible. We saw a better site when we were heading to our assigned site, and he let us switch. Hookups are good with no issues, picnic table and fire ring, but there is no WiFi, no laundry or showers and, frankly, no other amenities other than swimming in the lake. Cell phone (Verizon) receiption was good. We would come back here at the drop of a hat! - RobtL

This is a beautiful park. The owner maintains the grounds constantly and it shows. That being said this is an adult park and mostly seasonal people who are retired as the website clearly states. For the most part they were all friendly and wonderful but others complained about us for things we had nothing to do with and were caused by other seasonal campers. The owner was nice and took control of the situation, but in thirty years of camping this is first time anyone has complained about us to the park staff. - gsull
