My review is based on a holiday weekend stay, things may be different (spaced out sites, etc.) during a slower time. Overall the park itself is large with several wooded areas for both campers and tent sites. The location is on a busy road with what we felt was a tight turn to enter the park. Departing, we had to wait for quite some time before we were able to safely make a left hand turn with the camper behind us. For it being right off the road though it was quiet. The pool was always crowded (because of the holiday?) but they do have access to the Schroon River and a swimming area there too. They had seasonal sites there but nothing I felt was excessive. There were several (very close to each other) back-in sites along the river and most of the interior pull-throughs were for the larger 5th wheels. The back-in sites along the river were dirt, very fine dusty / sandy dirt, however the site was level. The weather was nice while we were there but expect a mud pit if there's a good rain. Activities for the kids? There was a basketball court, few swings, arcade, and I'm not sure about the mini-golf. The mini-golf looked like its seen better days, I don't think it was in service when we were there, the holes weren't properly marked and I never saw anyone playing. The site had cable with a variety of channels and WiFi. We didn't bother too much with the Internet, maybe to check email here and there. They only allowed each device to be connected for 60 minutes and with it so bogged down and slow it wasn't worth the hassle. The staff was friendly, guided you to your site, and ran the small store. Even though they're on the river, the store (at the time of this review) did not sell live bait. We camped at Riverview Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

With the back-in sites along the water, it will be difficult to park on the side of the road at your site or stay connected . Either you disconnect and wedge your truck in-between you and your neighbor and lose space in your site or use one of the designated parking areas. The road is not wide enough for people arriving / departing to pass and the staff will be hunting you down to move.

Peace and quiet with a serene view was what we were looking for and found it here. We were fortunate to find an opening right on the river and were greeted every morning with a beautiful mist and a family of ducks :)

Though it appears that it's a bit cramped it's not..the way the site is planned with a slight angle you do enjoy a decent size quiet area to relax. There is a 24 hr Price Chopper supermarket literally across the street which was a huge plus. One highway exit to downtown Lake George put us close enough yet far enough away from the crowds.

The campground offers kayak and canoe rentals, the river is very calm almost still which made paddling a breeze. Decent fishing for bass, sunfish and possibly trout. Great for adults, probably a challenge with small children to have fun on the grounds. We camped at Riverview Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We had a great time at this campground. We came in with five families and they gave us the perfect site for all of us to be accommodated. It is a very peaceful place: close to everything you could ever want to do. Ten minutes to the Great Escape and outlet malls, and fifteen to the big mall. The pool was very relaxing, and the hospitality was outstanding. Every night we all enjoyed the game room, and every morning made the short walk to Dunkin Donuts for coffee. The great workers made it a very enjoyable vacation. The river was beautiful and it surrounds the entire camping area. We would definitely go back, and would recommend it to others as well.

The sites are so tiny that they should be illegal. The awning from the camper on the adjacent site was 3 inches from my camper. My awning was covering the other adjacent sites hookups. Imagine having your neighbor's sewer hose running next to your picnic table. If you have a tow vehicle, good luck trying to park it on your site. You may have to ask your neighbor if you can share their site to park your truck. Whoever made this campground's website had their work cut out for them. It looks very nice on their website. In the picture gallery, there is a picture of campsites along the river. You only see one fire ring in the picture. I camped on that site. There is a fire ring every 10 to 15 feet along the water. Myself and 3 other campers, that were first timers to this campground, swore that we would never return and felt misled by the website. We camped at Riverview Campground in a Travel Trailer.

After making reservations in winter & driving 5 hours to the region with our family & friends, we were told our friends couldn't have the site they had reserved because another camper had parked there by mistake & they wouldn't be asking him to move. They couldn't have the river site they paid for. Then we drove our trailer down to our site, it was the smallest site. We have a modest 30' trailer with a 16" slide and there was no way to fit it in the site! The manager said we could have another site away from the river. From the discussion with the campers on either sides of our site, they have had many problems here. I asked for a refund, (which was this places only saving grace) and all of us drove out & found another campground. Should have known it would be a bad experience when we never received any letter of confirmation of our paid in full reservation & lack of follow up to emails and phone calls. We were looking for a less costly Lake George camping vacation and certainly got what we paid for! I would not recommend this place to any friend or family - there are far too many other places in the region! We camped at Riverview Campground in a Travel Trailer.
