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. We camped at Lake George Escape Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

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.

Love this campground plenty of stuff for the kids to do all day long from the minute they wake up till dusk. The grille is great only wish prices were a little better and they offered kids meals. Love that you can do the beach or the pool. Staff is extremely friendly been going here for years and can't wait to go in August this year. Only complaint is wish the reservation system was better.

I've camped at this campground for over 15 years. When it was privately owned it was great now that is was purchased by a large corporation, it is now run-down, no improvements in at least 5 years, dirty/backed up bathrooms, dirty showers, laundry out of order. Hardly any visible staff around. The septic system is failing resulting in septic trucks pumping around the campground every two hours like clock work, noisy and smelly! This campground is not worth $70 per night and they charge extra for every little thing. We camped at Lake George Escape Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.

We have stayed here in the past in a Motorhome which is why we returned this year. The Reservation desk was under-staffed and there was a line-up . . . we had made reservations though their new central service but it was recorded a day after we arrived! I gather that there have been many complaints. The clerk was very helpful, thank goodness, because I was tired. Sites are belly-to-butt and not level. This is a very noisy campsite - loud radios until curfew and way too many yapping bloody small animals mascarading as dogs. WAY over-priced by about 50% higher than another spot less than two miles away. We will not be back. We camped at Lake George Escape Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

The GOOD: Huge lodge and well stocked, great activities for all, great amenities, easy check-in and warm staff. Short distance from LG Village where you'll find great prices on souvenirs. The GOOD TO KNOW: Bug spray needed EVERYWHERE you go as "ponds" are more like swamps, and there are quite a few. A bit on the loud side with a lack of security and/or policy enforcement. The WOULD LIKE TO SEE IMPROVED: Security, no drinking in the pool especially where it is a family campground and certainly NO DOGS in the pool. I thought that was terrible. A staff member was close and nothing was done. A mosquito warning should be posted on your website especially for people that are highly sensitive. My daughter was bit so many times that we had to check out early, drive back 6 hours and see her doctor. Not good at all. The ice cream area should be more "kid friendly". Perhaps it should be separated from next to the register. There was always a line and no where to stand and wait. Wi-Fi is offered around the lodge and grill. The connection was so slow that I was not able to connect. It be best to charge a small fee for internet and have it available in the entire park. We would not go again. Sorry!

We stayed off season so the rate was lower. Check in was quick and the site was clean. We had great power and a nice view of "Moose pond." The staff was friendly and attentive. We camped at Lake George Escape Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a BIG place and devoted to kids. We selected it because we were a big-rig (45’) and places that could take us were limited in that part of upstate NY when we were here. First was the oft-heard promise, “No problem! We have sites that can accommodate you easily.” Actually, after we got into it and trimmed a few branches, we fit quite easily. The problem was getting here and turning into it without scratching the sides too much. I do wish that park owners would just once try parking a big coach before telling customers “no problem.” I know that if we were traveling with a coach full of kids we would have felt differently about this campground, but without them this was just an oversized, mediocre park in need of a lot of gravel and tree trimming. We will try to avoid it next time we are in the neighborhood. We camped at Lake George Escape Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

This park is huge, and we have stayed here in the past and had a great time. The big draw for us is the access to the river for kayaking and tubing down the river. The staff is friendly and helpful. A great place for families. There is big room for improvement in the infrastructure. This campground is now owned by Encore and has not seen the maintenance that it deserves. The sites need leveling and new gravel. Trees and brush need trimming and general maintenance. Additionally, there were some low power issues in the area we stayed. The extra treat for us was the septic truck that needed to empty the galleys directly behind our trailer - hey, at least they are on top of those type of issues. We will be returning; just need the ownership to reinvest in the campground. We camped at Lake George Escape Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Sometimes I wish I could do park reviews for Trailer Life. We spent two days at this campground. Although there are some good points, there are some things people should know before they book this campaground. The good; bathrooms are cleaned frequently, good roads, DJ and dancing at night till 10, the kids enjoyed the pool. The bad; a campground owned by a corporation and they intend to make money. We have a pop-up that when folded out it is 24' long. It has a small slide out and 8' long awning and we barely fit on the site. The slide out was against the boulders that divide the sites on one side and my awning legs were almost on the boulders on the other. Once set up we had a problem, where to park my full size Chevy Silverado. We went to the office and they told me for one night I could park it on the site next to us. Then the next night they just strugged their shoulders. The campers next to us had a large tent, and their stakes were under our awning. They stuff as many campers together as they could. While that might be ok for some, it was not for us as the neighbors like to stay up and talk, and we could hear every word. Not a great camping experience. If you like this sort of thing it's up your alley, if you don't, stay away. And that's exactly what we told them when we checked out. We won't be back! We camped at Lake George Escape Camping Resort in a Tent Trailer.
