Huge park with 800 sites. Easy to reach from the highway exit. Overpriced unless you want to use all the "camp" style amenities, most of which are for kids (and most of which cost extra). On site restaurant serving surprisingly good pizza and full bar open on weekends. We stayed in a 39' RV and had no trouble getting into our site which was level and big enough for 2 motorhomes. Gravel and grass base. Fires are allowed and smoke can be bothersome depending on wind direction. Looks to be virtually all travel trailers and tent campers. Super busy on weekends or for special events, quiet otherwise. Grounds were clean and well kept, and long-term residents all kept their sites clean and tidy.

No satellite access from our site and I doubt any site had a clear sky view through the trees. No free wifi but commercial provider charging $9.95/day. Water pressure was good; water was cold. Surprisingly quiet at night for a park this large, but we could hear the highway traffic. Other sites would hear nothing or even more than we did depending on where the site was located. Rental golf carts available and a fairly well-stocked store at entrance. I would probably look at other options before staying here again especially for the price. We camped at Lake George Escape Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

Easy RV diesel access just across highway on exit 23. Town of Lake George is 10 minutes away. The town is not very interesting, mostly t-shirt shops and burger restaurants. Go a little further to Glens Falls and see outlet shops, better restaurants, and more activities including Six Flags.

This is a very large Encore park. Check-in was efficient, staff was friendly and accommodating. Internal roads were a little bumpy but ok at the 5mph posted speed. Hookups were fine at our site which was very private with trees on both sides of us so we didn't use window shades in living area of the coach. We had a nice field across from us with picnic tables we used for lunch when friends visited. They had a nice pool we didn't use and looked like things for kids to do too. We will absolutely stay here again if in the area! We camped at Lake George Escape Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

This is handy to Lake George and the Adirondacks. Recommend driving north to Whiteface Mountain and going up the auto road to the top for beautiful 360 degree views to Montreal, Burlington, Lake Placid and more. Prospect Mountain in Lake George is worth a drive up too. Many stores, Walmart, outlets, grocery within 10-15 minutes. Farmers market right in Warrensburg on Fridays. Great place to stay for the Adirondack Balloon festival in late September followed by some leaf peeping.

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.

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.

We stayed here in for two nights and it couldn't have been better. The staff was friendly, the campgrounds were nice, and everything went smooth. Would definitely recommend! 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.

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 camped at Lake George Escape Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

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.

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.

Very large woodsy campground that is quite spread out. It was a little tricky maneuvering our 41' M/Home through the access roads to our site in many areas. Once we reached our sandy/gravel site it was very expansive and private. Sites were very level and hook-ups were conveniently located. They have a newer camp store that is well stocked with camping needs. We would return as this is a great area to spend time. On a previous trip we attended the hot air ballon festival nearby. Each Sept this event is held and if you've never been to one it is well worth doing so. A spectacular event. We camped at Lake George Escape Camping Resort in a Motorhome.
