This park is not big rig friendly. It appears trees are not trimmed above 10 feet. Interior roads are twisty, dirt, and full of potholes . Difficult to get a big rig in and out of the camping sites. They said our site was satellite accessible. It was not. I doubt if any are. The place is heavily treed. There was cable. No internet except at the main office area (though they say they are building connections to serve the camping spots) Convenient to Lake Place and Ft. Ticonderoga (both about 60 miles away) and to the village of Lake George (which isn't worth visiting unless you want to go the beach or the amusement park). We camped at Lake George Escape Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

Did not care for the campground. We arrived Midweek and were put in the back away from all facilities and activities, close to highway. There were plenty of open sites with shade but suspected that they were reserved for the weekend so I did not complain. Noticed when we left that some of those same sites were still available, I wondered why we were placed in such a bad location. Received an email stating I should have called instead of using online registration. I think they had an idea of where I was going regardless. They also said I should have requested another site but that means repacking. I just drove 5.5 hours to get here, now I have to repack and move because they couldn't give me a better site in the first place?? We camped at Lake George Escape Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.

So very disappointed. We planned for 10 days here, but when we arrived they had us in a site we could not fit in. The one other site that was available had electrical issues and our power management kept kicking our electric off due to low voltage.

The maintenance fellow came and confirmed that there is indeed low voltage in this campground and that one of the boxes actually caught fire from overheating.

There are 575 sites here and they have packed them in here regardless of the electrical issues.

Again, very disappointed as we had hoped to visit this area as we have never been here. Getting a reservation last minute in this area is next to impossible.

The roads are narrow and trees on both sides, even still we would have liked to have stayed.

If you are not a kid person, this is not the campground for you as they are everywhere. Nice to see them outside playing.

We left after one night so we cannot comment on the amenities. Without electric in an all electric unit, we cannot stay and risk ruining our rv.

If you have a smaller unit with no management system you may love this place, bigger 50amp units beware. We camped at Lake George Escape Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Unfortunately, we did not have a good experience at the Lake George Escape RV Park. We made reservations three weeks in advance, and were careful to tell the representative that our Fifth Wheel is 13' 4" tall, and 41 feet long. We were assured that we would not have any issues (when speaking with the person making the reservation and a follow-up call to the campround office), with the interior roads or trees/branches, and that the site assigned to us, was long enough for our RV and Truck. Our first indication of trouble, was when we followed the campground's website directions from Route 87.... One of the roads had a weight capacity of 5 Tons (we assume that most full timer's rigs exceed that). Also, just before the campground entrance, is a bridge underpass with no height signs. In order to safely pass under, we had to travel very slowly on the shoulder, and still were close to hitting our roof air conditioner. When we went to the check in, and mentioned the road weight restriction and underpass, the employees indicated that we were only the first customers to mention the road weight restriction, and the second to mention the underpass height. Neither of these issues were mentioned in their directions. We asked to be taken to see our site, before we drove in with the rig. I asked what height the tree branches were cut to, and the employees did not have an answer. The tree branches that were over the interior road were at height of 10 feet (our estimate). The employees did try to find another site that could accommodate our rig, but the roads to this second site, also had low hanging branches, and the road width was tight. We observed that most of the rigs that were in the campground were significantly lower in height in shorter in length. We were refunded our money, and left through the exit (which also had one low hanging branch). We camped at Lake George Escape Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

This park is NOT big rig friendly. Anyone with an RV over 10' tall should only consider sites closer to the office, since those roads appeared to be better trimmed and wider.

Did a quick mid week stay and they had plenty available. We caught the tail end of the fall foliage. Its a large camp ground and it was easy to ask for and receive a more secluded spot. We like privacy and could tell, by driving around, that they have many sites that afford that request. There are cabins but we didn't get to see one. There is a general store and several activity centers. We were only a couple, but could see where a family would enjoy staying here, not only for the attractions in the area, but the arcade and nature areas in the park to walk. We camped at Lake George Escape Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Very large park with a large percentage of tent sites. We stayed in their most basic rental cabin and it had ample space for a family of 5. TV, fridge and a screen door were an added luxury. Pool is adjacent to a bar and a grill with very reasonable rates. Downside was it turned into a dance floor with a DJ who played extremely loud rap music until 10pm on weeknights. Our cabin was 30 yards away. Staff was extremely friendly. Camp store is large with a wide variety of offerings. We camped at Lake George Escape Camping Resort in a Cabin.

We stayed here while exploring the Lake George area. Our site was a nice pull through, with nice shade, but still a little bit of sun. All of the hookups were fine. When we arrived we found that all of the resort activities were still closed. The pool was under reconstruction, which was delayed because of the long winter, completely understandable. However, the grill was still closed as was the equipment rental area. We were told that most of the activity areas don't open up until July when the tourism season begins in the area. We expected more considering the Americade bike week was being held in Lake George and many of the campground visitors were there for that. The good is that it was a short drive into Lake George, which really is a beautiful little town. We would consider returning if in the area and when the activities are going on. We camped at Lake George Escape Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Great Family resort. Stayed on Halloween weekend loved the haunted hay ride put on by the staff. There was activities all day and up till 11pm every night. We always had something to do. The camp store was well stocked and very reasonable on their prices. We will definitely be back. We camped at Lake George Escape Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This park is all about kids. Lots of kid friendly activities. The sites are huge with a very natural setting.There was a wide variety of camping styles here Labor Day weekend, including some who camped in their car. Wi-Fi is only available at the lodge or grill and it was very slow. It was not worth $80 per night. I expect a more upscale atmosphere for that price. Won't stay here again.

Made reservations here for a week, because of the listed amenities. We are active adults & bike, play tennis & workout in the pool on a daily basis. Tried to play tennis, but kids had knocked a net post out of the pavement on one of the two courts, were playing on them with badminton racquets or using it with skateboards. We saw a family playing a version of volleyball on the tennis court. No security in sight to enforce the posted rules. The larger of the two pools was always filled to capacity with kids all day & evening. The kiddie pool was pretty much empty most times, but at only 3 feet deep so it's hard to work out. Biking was rarely possible because of the small kids playing in the roads. They have a DJ nightly, but the dance floor was packed with little kids jumping around. Definitely a family park & not for the 50+ age group. We camped at Lake George Escape Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

Incredible place! Let my husband make reservations at another campground (big mistake) and left immediately after seeing conditions. Called Lake George Resort and they were SO helpful and fit us in for 2 nights during their busy month. Very private sites - even though we backed up to the activity center and playground we had privacy. Kids had a blast - Bingo, games, biking, henna tattoos, fishing, swimming, etc. etc. VERY Helpful staff. There were some rowdy teenagers at the park after hours and 1 phone call ended it immediately. We were sad to leave! Would highly recommend and visit again! We camped at Lake George Escape Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

We were here near the end of the season, so many of the park ammenities were not operating. The park access from the highway is good and pretty well marked. The park roads are not as well marked and the roads are fairly potholed and windy, so we were a bit concerned we wouldn't find our site without a lot of driving around. The sites are long but fairly narrow and many are not very level. We wound up having to park very close to one side to get level enough to use our jacks. Had to trim some of the nearby trees/shrubs and the overhead trees dragged on the roof. Probably would not camp here again as we saw some other campgrounds in Lake George that looked more inviting.

This park is pretty. The staff (and their attitudes) are not. Was refused the Good Sam rate upon arrival and we spoke with their office manager about their declination of giving our discount upon our arrival. First, she again refused to give it, claiming that even though, 1. There is a Good Sam Club sign on the wall saying that members get a 10% discount. 2. She was so adamant that she called G.S. Customer Service and was told that she is supposed to give it. After she got off the phone, she said that “this one time” she would give it to us, but they were absolutely NOT going to be forced to give it in the future and she ripped the sign off the wall. We left this place a day early due to horrendously rude campers (one man screaming curses at his wife and kids for over an hour) with multiple families (tents, rigs, etc) on each site, dogs running loose through campsites, kids unsupervised running through sites, rude staff, manager and an employee who came to our door and asked if we were “enjoying our stay”. We asked him about “quiet” rules, maximum people on site rules and the G.S. issue. He suggested we buy a “pet alligator” (we are from Florida – so we believe this is why he made this snotty comment), to keep the kids and dogs out of our site. We just wanted you to know that they have NO INTENTION OF HONORING GOOD SAM MEMBERSHIPS THERE and are NOT motivated at all to actually service their guests. Just want to pack them in as much as they can for the money and ignore all the horrible behaviors. We camped at Lake George Escape Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

Group rate, we added an extra night and rates had dropped to $20. We were in site 14, a nice level pull through with 30 amp, water, sewer and a decent cable lineup. Verizon broadband was outstanding here. I did note some of the things mentioned in previous reviews, but do not have the same complaints. Good value for price paid.

This park is huge; but also very clean and quiet. Sites could be bigger but not too tight. Campground offers regular shuttle service to Lake George Village and great escapes with lots of daily activities. They could add another pool as it is small and far from some of the sites. This campground would get a higher rating if Wi-Fi was available through out campground (currently only at office) and if they didn't charge for everything. We camped at Lake George Escape Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
