After reading other reviews, we were a bit hesitant on coming here, but all other campgrounds were full. In fact, we could only stay one night here because they were booked for the rest of the week. It is large, and family oriented. We had a pull though with full hook up. (50 amp). The park is very large and there are many families enjoying themselves here. The staff was friendly and helpful and gave us good recommendations. Although the park is big, the do not offer an escort service, which we really didn't need. the directions from staff and the map, were very self explanatory and we had no problem finding our site. There is also a trolley service which runs north and south thru the Lake George area and the stop is right by the drive into the CG. We really liked this place. Also, they offer free WIFI, which worked - very well - but just some of the time. We camped at King Phillips Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
This was our first trip in a new travel trailer and we had a great time. This is not a good park if you are looking for lot's of activities, but if you just want to relax it is perfect. The entire park was very clean and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The only draw back is the wifi is unreliable the further you get from the office. We were on full hookup and everything else worked great. The site was dirt and very level. We will definitely stay here again. We camped at King Phillips Campground in a Travel Trailer.
Tips for other Campers:
There is shopping in both directions within a 5 minute ride and plenty of restaurant's in the village of Lake George.

Nice park, we had a very nice site. Feel that park should escort campers to their site since park is very large and site map is hard to read and many sites not marked. Some of the office help not overly knowledgeable on trolley stop and schedule information. Would stay here again. Many sites further into park are all shade and would not want those sites. We stayed on site H34 which was a corner lot. Firewood very expensive for amount received. Pool was nice. We camped at King Phillips Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
Recently spent four nights at King Phillips in site V-9. They are only about 3 miles from the village of Lake George. Very convenient. Our site had full hook ups including cable and fair sized. Site was crusher stone which was very level. We stayed here several years back and you can see many improvements to the CG. All roads and campsites are stoned over like our site. Many sites are wooded hill side and appear to be again fair sized. Bath houses appear to have been recently remodeled as they have tiled walls, floors and counter tops with new pine wood toilet dividers. Showers were separate enclosures that were dated but clean with good water pressure. There are many seasonal campers in this park. Our site was perpendicular to three and if they were at their trailers during our visit we would of had no privacy. The hill side sites appear more private. Also, because of so many seasonal campers there is a lot of traffic (golf carts) buzzing around the CG. With the stone roads, after awhile it gets irritating to listen to the noise. King Phillips has a very irregular lay out to it and could use a golf cart escort to lead campers to their sites. We watched many arrivals pull in and then have to back out to find their spot. Office staff is very friendly and helpful with suggestions on the area. Our rate is an average with Good Sam discount for our stay which we thought wasn't bad considering the area. If we came back to the Lake George area we would consider coming back but request a quieter hill side site. We camped at King Phillips Campground in a Motorhome.
This campground is beautifully maintained with super clean showers. We were given a site on the mountainside in the back of the park. It was very nice! The playground and pool were both desired favorites for our 6 year old and 4 year old. My only complaint is the customer service by office staff. Upon check-in the teen in the office was less than helpful and seemed put out by helping me. The lady in the office did not look up or help the boy. I do believe he said no more than 10 words. He did not even tell me our site number. We have stayed at many campgrounds and this is the most unfriendly office environment we have witnessed. Aside from the poor check-in service this campground experience was wonderful. We camped at King Phillips Campground in a Motorhome.

Great place, very friendly/helpful staff and sites were clean and level. A couple of tight turns headed to the wooded sites but nothing unreasonable. We will definitely be back. We camped at King Phillips Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We had visited this campground many times as our friends are seasonal there. This was our first stay. The campground was well maintained, sites were level. We didn't use the pool or showers, but checked them out and seemed to be very clean. The campground overbooked the reservations and tried to send us to their sister campsite, but then found us an area where we could camp with power and water. Not sure why as there were many open sites. Our trailer would have never fit into their small overgrown dump station so we had to wait until neighbor pulled out to use that site to dump. The campground was very quiet at night and there is security that drives around with golf carts to ensure this. The campground is on the trolley route that goes right into the village of Lake George or to the outlets. Probably will not stay here again unless they can guarantee a specific site number when making the reservation (which is not done for first time visitors). We camped at King Phillips Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Campsites at front of park close together. The T and M areas had shaded sites, spacious, level. Shuttle to nearby towns. Lots to do and see, War of 1812 and American Revolution sites for exploring. Lake George has multiple recreation opportunities. Would recommend if you're in the area. We camped at King Phillips Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice, quiet park. The people we met were friendly and the staff were helpful. Our site was shady and cool. Convenient to Lake George village and outlets, although we did not go to the outlets. Trolley will transport you back and forth all day long. We camped at King Phillips Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Very large, well managed park. They cram a site into every available space, but the terracing on the mountainside keeps it from feeling claustrophobic. We stayed in M6: barely big enough for our 35' fifth wheel, but very comfortable once we got set up. Saw some sites down on the flat by the playground area that I wouldn't care for. Would stay again if in the Lake George area. We camped at King Phillips Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
A very nice campground on the shuttle line into town. Can't really ask for more for the rate. I used Good Sam discount. Four washers, could use a few more. We camped at King Phillips Campground in a Motorhome.
We had a site with full hookups so we did not use the showers. The restroom near the pool was clean. The restroom near our site was old and buggy. The restroom near the playground was new with private shower rooms. It appears they are upgrading them all. Park has MANY seasonal / full time units mixed in with the vacationers. Some were not well kept. Pet friendly they are not. Bicycling around the park with kids, I heard the staff talking to two separate vacationers to keep their dogs from barking and we had a note left on our door our first day telling us to keep our dog quiet. (We went to the front desk and were gone 20 minutes.) The rest of our stay, we had the windows closed and the AC on (not really camping). The Staff was extremely pleasant though. Park is a mix of flat and hillside. We camped at King Phillips Campground in a Travel Trailer.
Very close to Lake George Village and attractions. We were in the front and had a nice pull through: level, treed, large with good hook-ups. Although we did hear complaints from other campers about spots in the rear of the park that were small and difficult to get into. Nice staff in the office, excellent Wi-Fi. Cable TV. We were here a week and would stay here again. We camped at King Phillips Campground in a Motorhome.
