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 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.

This camp ground is starting to show it;s age. There needs to be more upgrades to make it the number one in the area. Sewer trucks in and out everyday is a bit much. Pool is showing age badly. Sites in the back need more upgrading. I still like the campground. We camped at Lake George Escape Camping Resort in a Tent Trailer.

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.

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.

This is a giant campground and we were not able to choose our site when we made reservations. The campground worked well for our needs. We left every day and spent the day outside the campground. However, it is not a place I would want to spend a lot of time. Our area had good people that were quiet, but in other areas, and especially near their bar, it was really loud with various campers playing different types of music. So, it was OK but probably very bad if you were in the wrong spot. Some people like mega campgrounds and, for those people, this is a good one. We camped at Lake George Escape Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Camped on Ready, Camp, Go Program sponsored by parent company of Lake George Escape. No sewer as part of standard site although all other campgrounds stayed at on the program have provided such. Made double reservations and called home phone while we were traveling to say they would give our site up unless we paid in full. Full bar in family campground at the family recreation and pool area. Not the usual. Loud music from 4 - 8 from DJ at this area. Sites were clean, roads well kept, rules enforced to a fault, and lots of activities for kids. Free local newspaper and $1.99 breakfast buffet were nice touches. Management exhibited attitude toward cut price programs during the peak season even though they were definitely not full and even indicated season had been really off. Would not return. We camped at Lake George Escape Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

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.

Took a long time to check in due to long line at registrations. Staff was pleasant. Interior roads good. Campground is like a city of Rv's. Site was gravel and level. But sites are close together with very little privacy, at least in the section we were in -- 600 #'s. It was a 10 minute walk to the bathroom/showers. The showers had a separate changing room that was muddy unless you showered after 8 pm. Any earlier and it was difficult to get dressed without getting the mud on your pants as you try to put them on. Road noise was constant. No ventilation so it was like a sauna getting dressed. Bingo was expensive and prizes were in store/cafe vouchers rather than money. Every evening at dinner time a tractor with blaring music comes through the campground pulling a "train car" of kids with parents. We found it very disruptive to our dinner and had people yelling at us "what are you eating?", What's for dinner?", "Got any extra?". Would most likely NOT stay here again, as I prefer wilderness compared to RV city and nature sounds compared to highway noise. We camped at Lake George Escape Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

While it has lots to do, you'd better bring a pocket full of cash, because everything your kids will want to do costs extra; even the little river tube ride is $7 each. The pools were small for a campground this size, but the playground is nice. We didn't expect to have to pay for Wi-fi at a campground of this caliber (and cost), so that brings its mark down for us, and the river beach was disappointing too. The water was cold and the roped area was really small, so we only spent about 20 minutes there. Our site was up in the front, and it's like a big RV parking lot -- very close quarters, very crowded. But I think the thing that irked us the most was that this is a family campground, yet we had to pay extra for our son, who's 14. We won't go back.

We stayed here twice this season. First visit had us in a site that was next to a swamp; unable to remain outside due to heavy mosquito infestation. Pool was too cloudy to safely use. We chalked it all up to fate and decided to try it again. On the morning of our second visit, front desk called my home at 10 am to say that they were "booked" and that our reservation was now cancelled. Trailer was loaded in the driveway, kids were excited, and now no campsite. Woman on phone said that she was sorry. I wouldn't accept "sorry", so she said that maybe something might open up. I drove up there anyway, received a site, and counted no less than 30 open sites. Bring lots of $, as everything is extra. There are better options in Lake George than this place.
