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.

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.

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.

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.

Very typical large resort park. We camped here over Father's Day weekend. The park was busy but there were still many open sites. Free breakfast for fathers on Sunday. Sites in Moose Pond area were spacious and secluded. Wi-Fi only available in the vicinity of the Lodge. Well stocked camp store. Lots to do in the Lake George area. We camped at Lake George Escape Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a very family oriented campground. We camped here with two other families in the pull through sites in front near the recreational field. Our sites were a nice size with plenty of room in front and back of our trailer to park our vehicle, along with nice spacing between trailers. The campground is level throughout. There are numerous kids throughout the day walking, riding bikes or pedal cars. The staff were all friendly and very helpful. They have a shuttle to the village that comes and goes hourly. There is lots to do in the area. It is 6 miles from Lake George village. They offered daily breakfast buffet for $1.99, also a nice convenience. A group of us also took advantage of tubing down the lazy river into the campground. This campground has lots to do and is convenient to Lake George. We would definitely return again. We camped at Lake George Escape Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This was our second, but hopefully not our last, visit to Lake George Escape. The name says it all. This is truly a great escape for a weekend or a week’s vacation. The roads are a mix of dirt and asphalt, wide enough for all size rigs. Sites will meet the needs of all campers from tenter to full time RVers. The camping store has everything that you need for your stay. The shelves are well stocked with food, camping needs, and souvenirs. They have check-in down to a science. All staff members are friendly and helpful. There is an activity shop that handles all the events from arts & crafts, family sports, and equipment loans & rentals. There is so much to do here for campers of all ages. Their activities start around 8 am and go all day until about 9 pm. With all they have to offer you may not want or have to leave the campground. There are two heated pools one for the little campers and one for the bigger campers. The pools have 2 times set aside for adult swim. There is a café and bar near the pool. The café has $2.00 breakfast every morning which is a buffet with muffins, eggs, potatoes, sausage or bacon, French toast or pancakes and juice. You can’t beat the value! There are a few showers/restrooms throughout the campground, all cleaned throughout the day. The laundry room is clean with newer coin operated washers & driers. There is an arcade with a few games of change to collect tickets and win small items. If I had one complaint it would be their mini golf; it is a 9 hole course that is very out dated and needs of some TLC. We camped at Lake George Escape Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We were in the 600 area sites which are big and wide but not near anything including a bathroom. We had to drive to get to a bathroom or shower. The bathrooms at the rear of the front office are the cleanest. The ones near us (and not really that close) were dirty and crowded. The pools are very small(one for small children and the other for everyone else) and quickly become over crowded. The reservations system is a joke as this place is part of a corporation and when you call the 800 # you are not speaking to anyone that actually is at the campground. You can make reservations directly through the campground if your resourceful and can find the local phone number. However apparently the local campground and the corporate reservation people don't communicate and one can't tell you any information about your reservation if you've made it through the other entity. The check in took a long time too as apparently they have only 1 or 2 employees that wait on customers while the remaining 10 employees are either on break or just plain ignore you. This place is just to over run with kids, golf carts, and RV trailers coming and going at all hours. Lake George RV Park is a much better run, cleaner and a quieter campground than this place. We camped at Lake George Escape Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice very wood lots. Big Pines were nice but were dropping needles, sap, and pollen while we were there. Not the park's fault. Super nice owner who is strick with rules and is on premises active in park operation. Don't try to get in this park with a junk RV! WiFi is spotty (office area only) in that it drops out and you have to go into the office to reboot the router (once to twice a day). ITS guy can't seen to get it fixed. Large sites, very wide. Restrooms were absolutely spotless and well supplied. Book exchange. NO PETS in this park. Pool clean and nice but not heated. Rec. hall is great and well stocked with stuff for kids to do. Kid friendly park. Excellent maintained park. Take insect repellent this time of year! We camped at Lake George Escape Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice place to stay. Staff was great in all aspects. The campground was very clean and organized. The store was probably the best I have ever been in, they carried everything you would ever need on a trip. If your going to this area this campground should been your first call for reservations.

Very nice park with lots of available activities. Even included a free shuttle into Lake George. Improvements could be made on how to manage the extremely dusty conditions in some parts of the park. The dust was all over everything and impacted the cleanliness of the bathrooms and showers. The dust would track and quickly make the bathrooms ugly and the drying area of the showers very poor. Thought should be given to how to better manage all the dirt. The only other complaint was that the paper toweling (in light of the prior comments) needs better attention to keep a full supply. I have always tried to leave park rest rooms/showers in better condition than when I walked in--however, with all the dust and lack of paper towels, this is was very difficult.
