Saw the bad review in July. Our experience was satisfactory. Spent two nights here. They advertise on really clean restrooms and they were new and spotless. Mostly seasonal. Map is bad. Most roads end in cul-de-sacs. Our site was large, level. Water pressure was very good. WiFi everywhere is spotty, because of so many users, but ours was mostly OK. Transients are put in fairly accessible sites. Staff we dealt with were friendly and helpful. I booked via phone but was never sent an e-mail confirmation. They replied confirmations often go to spam and Google has not worked with them to fix the problem. I never saw it in my spam, so do not know. We would stay here again. It is closest to Lake George Village. We camped at King Phillips Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Good Sam discount for a one night stay at a 30 amp, pull-through site. The park layout is quite confusing, the roads are narrow, and escort service was not provided. We did find a maintenance worker and asked him to lead us to our site. Though it was a challenge to get to the site, we were pleased once we were settled. We had good Verizon cell/MiFi reception. There was no satellite reception because of the trees. We would not stay here again for an overnight stay, but might stay again for a multi-night stay. We camped at King Phillips Campground in a Motorhome.

Our worst experience in over a year of full-time travel. The rudest staff that we have ever encountered. We made reservations 9 months in advance for July 4th weekend for a pull- through site with full hook-ups and 50 amp service. When we checked in, we were told that we would need to disconnect our tow car and were then taken to a site that was too short for our 40 ft motorhome without the toad in an open parking area next to the basketball court with a foot of dead grass between sites and not a tree or landscaping in sight. We then realized that it was a 30 amp site. When we contacted the office, they blatantly said that it was our fault, we must have not asked for a bigger site or 50 amp service. Their "deluxe RV sites" are any sites with electric and sewer. Amazingly, not one person apologized. We demanded a refund and left as we would not pay $61 for that dump. The roads are narrow, the sites are packed. This is the first park that I have rated less than a 6. Please go somewhere else and don't give these people more business. We camped at King Phillips Campground in a Motorhome.

Just a one night stay. This is the closest park to town and the shuttle/trolley picks you up & takes you to town or the beach or the massive outlets for a buck right in front of the park. Full blown amusement park next door and nice pool so this is definitely kid friendly.

Good cable and spotty wifi. Our site was narrow and uneven and part mud/part gravel. Bathrooms were clean if not modern.

Would stay here again for the convenience. We camped at King Phillips Campground in a Motorhome.

Big Rigs, be careful about where they want to park you. If you are over 32', I would definitely ask to be placed in sections A, H or I. If they put you in another section, go check out the site before you agree to that spot. Walk to it, if you have to. The park map is terrible. You can get lost very easily, if you have never been in the park before. The park needs to provide escorts for people that have never been in the park. The campground map is that bad. We were lucky and got a pull thru site H-21. It has a lot of tree canopy, so if you don't want pine needles on your rig, ask for section A. Our site was very flat. They were having trouble with a water leak the first 2 days, but it got fixed on Monday. They wanted to put us in T-20, but we are pulling a 38' 5th wheel and when we went to look at it, it would have been very difficult to get into and almost impossible to get out of. To get to the site, was up a steep hill, (a short one, but steep) a sharp left turn (it would have been difficult to make that turn) then into the site that they claim is a pull thru, but if someone is camping in front of you, it is no longer a pull thru. Just be careful and look at the site before you pull your rig to it. Otherwise, this is a fantastic campground. There are a lot of seasonals, but they are all friendly. The staff in the office is wonderful. They are very knowledgeable about the area and there is a lot of information in the office. If is within walking distance to the trolley stop. The trolley will take you to Lake George, the outlet mall and even farther north and down into Glens Falls. Saratoga Springs is about 30 minutes away. The Adirondack mountains are close. Lake Placid is about 45-55 minutes and a beautiful drive. The campground has a nice pool (lots of children in summer months), a gaming room, a small laundry. They had some activities. The store at the office had a lot of offer. The fire wood was high at $7.00 a bundle and not seasoned. We camped at King Phillips Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Go to the Adirondack Museum in Blue Mountain Lake. It is worth the trip and plan on spending the whole day. From Lake George, it is about an hour and then we spent at least 4 hours there.

Take the trolley when you can around the area. It cost $1.00 for each person or $0.50 for seniors. The cost to park is more.

Go on a boat cruise of Lake George.

When making the reservation over the phone, our campsite was described by the clerk as "a level, gravel back-in full hookups with 50 amp power". What we got was a grass and mud back-in with 30 amp power. It was large enough to handle our large RV-- one of three or four in the RV park that can handle a large motorhome and also has room enough on the interior roads to maneuver into the site. We had disregarded previous comments concerning the same problems with being promised one type of site and upon arrival finding a much different scenario.

If you do stay at this campground: disconnect before you get to the campground. We were fortunate that nobody was also checking in when we got there-- there is only room for one RV at the check-in building and others have to wait on the road. By the time we completed check-in, there were two fivers sitting on the roadway waiting to turn in. The road has a moderate amount of traffic and a very small shoulder-- not large enough to park on, so you will be sitting in the traffic lane under those circumstances. We would never stay here again. We camped at King Phillips Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice base for exploring the area. Very clean, good hookups, free WiFi that works. Gravel/grass. We had a great site I-2. Lots of room, shade and a large front yard. This is a large campground with lots of seasonal sites. Everyone friendly. Busy and lots of traffic on the weekends. Would definitely stay here again.

This campsite is in the tourist area of Lake George near to many attractions, amusement parks and outlet shopping. We used it as a base for seeing the stunning Adirondack Mountains. Our site was one of the better ones being a pull thru and level with gravel standing and grass between sites and could accommodate our 36ft rig ok although the entrance road to the site was a a bit tight. It's easy access from the 1-87 but no highway noise. Wifi was good except late evening when I guess everyone is logged on. Cable TV good. We camped at King Phillips Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

I think our price included a a premium for being here during a BIG car show.
They have a late check-in time but they accommodated us because our site was empty - just be aware of the check-in time.
Very convenient location to Lake George Village and the many Outlets in the other direction.
Our site was spacious, but cannot say anything about the rest of the campground because we were near the entrance. We had our neighbors gazebo about a foot away from our driver-side slide, but fortunately no one was there. Other sites we saw near us were pretty nice, but not private.
Wifi was very hard to get logged into. It often took us 15-30 minutes to connect and then it was often very slow.
Cable TV was good. We camped at King Phillips Campground in a Motorhome.

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.

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.
