8 Parks near Lake Placid, New York
May 2009 - $40.00
This looks like a down-in-the-heels mobile home park with a lower area field for RVs. The best part is, it's only a few miles from the village of Lake Placid. There is nothing closer. - User424

As with most KOA's the pull throughs are close. Well maintained and large CG -extremely busy. We were there the weekend after Labor day and they had 78 families check in on Friday. Agree with another review: get away from the front rows of pull through sites if you want some privacy. They are flat and gravel. Sites further back are more wooded and a bit sandy. The further back the more private the sites get.
Nice dog park and large enough for a lab to run around. Well maintained dog trail leading to dog park. Ohhh and pool is definitely heated. I believe it is open year round.
The only down fall was (I believe) were the campfires. I love campfires as much as anyone but this particular weekend everyone must have had campfires (we did not). Because of the canopy of trees there was no where for the smoke to go and after awhile you were suffocated with smoke. The AC even pulled in smoke. There was no way you could open a window.
Lots of staff on golf carts - very helpful and friendly.
You need to disconnect if you are towing. The interior roads are tight - definitely needed a golf cart to show the way. Parking the tow vehicle was a challenge. - DeeA

Really enjoyed our stay at this large and well maintained park. Lots of level sites for larger rigs. Lots of smaller RVs, pop ups and tents also. Nice pool, playground. Lots of shade, forest. Hiking trail to river with falls and flume. Dog hiking trail and small dog park. Good hookups. Wifi fair, but no ATT cell. Rained all day one day. Not really muddy. More like wet sand. Close to Whiteface Mtn drive and not far from Lake Placid. One of the nicest KOAs we've been to. - Motorhome girl

This campground is a destination because it is quite a trek off I-87. The roads are fine even for a big rig (45). It's a very popular campground so be sure you have reservations. Sites are level dirt/gravel and the surrounding area is dirt. Vehicles going by stir up the dust. Lots of trees so no satellite but good cable. With that being said it is a very pleasant campground with ample space between sites. Lots of tent areas. WES all fine. Picnic table and fire ring. Lots of activities for kids, breakfast served daily and a snack bar. Nice pool and playground and bathrooms were very clean. River runs along side the campground. Staff very helpful. Wifi worked surprisingly well. Would return to enjoy the area more thoroughly. - Team Asphalt

My wife and I really enjoyed our recent stay at the North Pole Rv Park. We stayed at their newest addition to the 100 Pines area about 2/10 of a mile up Rt. 86 from the main office, campground and hotel. We enjoyed 50 amp full hook ups with cable, 11 channels, in a level spacious site number 34. These sites are the newest additions to 100 Pines. Large stone sites with plenty of spacing side to side and rear from the neighboring site. Check in was fast and pleasant.
Small complaint is where to pull in, as you approach the office on Rt. 86 with having a toad on a dolly, being careful that there is enough room to turn and navigate. That in itself turned out ok, with the owner carefully directing me out of the front lot, then having someone meet us at 100 Pines offering assistance in taking our care off the dolly and storing the dolly on site. (We later saw two staff do all of the un-loading and storing of toad and dolly on a 40 foot class A.)
100 Pines is peaceful and quiet. All the newer sites such as ours, have light posts along the camp road lighting the way at night. North Pole literature mentions that Wi-Fi is available near the rec building/bathrooms/shower, but being 3-4 sites away I had a good signal on my cell phone, along with a strong cell signal too on Verizon.
This campground offers some of the largest and nicest pull through sites that I have seen in the little older wooded (pines!) section. However, I don't think these sites are full hook up. Our neighbors mentioned that previously they stayed up the road at a KOA but liked 100 Pines much more for the quiet and generous state park sized sites.
This campground is 11 miles outside of Main Street Lake Placid, about 2 miles from Whiteface Mtn. ski lifts and summer chair rides up the ski slopes and about 8 miles from the car ride up Veteran's Memorial Highway taking you to the summit of Whiteface Mtn. We can't wait to return to North Pole RV Resort! - vincee

Very nice park well taken care of. Lot's of nearby things to do many of which are onsite, including the swimming pool, an adult game room, along with one for kids. Canoe rentals plus fishing are available on the Ausable River which adjoins the property. The park has a resort section with all the amenities but closer sites along the river plus access to the office and well stocked general store with a large selection of craft beers, including some on tap sold in growlers. Across Rt 86 is called the 100 Acre Woods section, with larger more shaded sites and access to numerous hiking paths. Clean bathrooms, stable power and good cable TV which was appreciated as SAT usage is limited to few sites due to trees, especially in the 100 Acre area. WiFi surprisingly good at the resort side, but limited across the road. Very helpful staff always waving while passing by. An enjoyable stay while visiting the Lake Placid area. - ex777driver

Pool, huge playground, great store, mini golf, river view, river swimming upstream, rec hall. Spacing is close. Wifi was inconsistent. Nice staff. Well ran park. Separate fire pit area on many sites. 10 miles from the city of Lake Placid which was nice, so the area was not quite so busy. $2 one time dog charge, but in all fairness, they do maintain a pretty long, nicely wooded dog walk through the park. Kids would especially enjoy it here. - User3274

We stayed at this campground for several days in our 39' fifth wheel. There aren't many sites in this park and only a few accommodate big rigs. We had a pull-thru, full hookup site. The width was adequate, but the length wasn't. We were able to pull into the site but had to back out. Our 30 amp service worked well, but others in our party had issues with the electric service. The camp is located at an old railroad station. It has the shabby but cozy feel of old Adirondack camping. The Inn at the campground serves food which we were told was quite good although we didn't get to try it. That's because the inn and camp office are closed several days per week in the Fall. Our group used the nice pavilion and the huge campfire area. We would stay here again if we were in this area because there are few options. - FifthWheel Travelers

Sites are decent size, but consist of soft packed dirt. Our site, as well as others, was heavily rutted and sloped off badly towards the trees. Electrical hookups are a disaster. Many have taped on extension cord pigtails for you to plug into. Plugs range from one 50 amp plug to 15 amp plugs and the associated breaker may not match the plug. The cable TV is good, but the wires for it are scattered all over and laying on top of the ground. Management appears to be generally more concerned about their inn than their campground. We stayed there two weeks in a motorhome, but would not return again. - RVRovers

Interesting spot as long as your rig is not too large. Back in spots on grass with utilities between each two sites, so might be on the wrong side. We did not see the sewer hookup until parked and did not have enough hose. Very good water, good power, cable and WIFI. Bathrooms were old, but relatively clean. Did not use laundry other than deep sink. Interesting old style north country bar/restaurant with good food - we enjoyed the weekend prime rib and fried haddock. Lots of trails for walking (snowmobiling). Great spot for local canoe/kayaking. Mostly folks who spend 2 to 4 weeks every year. Nothing really for kids, great for adults. Friendly campers and owners. Not much in this area w/ hookups. We were torn between rating 6 or 7. - 2hams

Almost 300 sites ON the water. You cannot beat this place. Large sites. Friendly staff and clean sites, too. - saunts

This is a state campground in the Adirondacks. For those in RV's, this is a primitive campground with no amenities; hence the rating of 7. That said, the campsites are beautiful, in the woods, with most campsites by the lakeside. The campground, which is huge, was sparsely occupied, so we had a we had a choice of sites. We found many that would accommodate our 40-foot-RV. We did need leveling boards to get level, but we were tired and did not try very hard to get level by driving back and forth, etc. We would stay here again when we wish to boondock. - hoppytoad

We love Fish Creek - this was our 6th visit. It is no-frills; the bathrooms could use refurbishing and some of the old fireplaces are crumbling, but we will continue to go back. We love the bike path, and the kayaking can't be beat. Be sure to do the Rollins Pond loop, or head over to the Raquette River. Here's a little secret - campers at Fish Creek (where the showers take quarters) can go up the road to another campground(where the showers are free). There are ice cream, coffee, wood and ice trucks that make daily loops, music performances and various crafts and guided nature hikes and a playground for the kids. There's also a nice beach and day-use picnic area. Donaldson's Trading Post is on the bike path and has all your basic needs. We've met some of the friendliest people here; it's safe to let your kids run and ride bikes. It would not be summer for us without a trip to Fish Creek! - janezp

Beautiful campsites. We did not get a lakefront site, although there were some that were empty. We would have loved one, the lake is gorgeous. Nevertheless, our site was nice and roomy. Part of our party was in a 35' fifth wheel, which fit fine, thought the site was not a pull-through. Got some funny looks at the entrance, so we were worried that the fifth wheel would not fit. Ice cream truck and wood truck drive around the camp, which was a nice touch. Would definitely return. Long, winding road entrance through a different campground. - Liz410

Nice wooded sites where you can walk right onto your own beach. Wood and other vendors come around which is a nice amenity. Overall a nice campground to camp at with your family. Bathrooms were clean along with the showers. - bigjimbo78

This is our third time here and it just keeps getting better. It was a busy Labor Day weekend but the place was very quiet. Beautiful sites - many on the Pond, itself. Plenty of shade. Lots of room between sites. Ample water availability and plenty of restrooms. Plenty of canoeing and hiking right at your doorstep. No hookups but - hey, we're camping, aren't we? One drawback might be the showers were in a central location and this is a BIG area so, depending on your site, it may be quite a haul to the showers. - rudeman

The park is beginning to show some wear and tear. I can imagine in the 80's it was quite lovely. The couple that owns it are delightful. Many of the campers are seasonal Canadians who must come down frequently on the weekends from the Montreal area. It was extremely quiet during our stay during the weekdays. Sites are large with electric (plenty of amperage), sewer (worked perfectly) and water. There are several 150 square-foot cabins for rent too.
The location is nice if you are interested in getting into the High Peaks to do some hiking or sight seeing.
The campground has a little camp store that has some odds and ends, ice and firewood.
We have a well-equipped fifth wheel and I'm not big on amenities, so for us this was quite lovely. Don't expect luxury and you'll be just fine. - Johnboronkay

This is not a resort but if you want a true, quiet and peaceful experience under the tall Adirondack pines this is the place for you. Located only 5 easy miles from Exit 32 off I-87/Adirondack Northway. Nice pool, free WiFi, friendly owners. Pull-through & back-ins, FHU. Laundromat and propane sales. Small parts store. Nice tenting area as well.We stayed the entire Summer Season but rate reflects Passport America price per night. - Adirondack Jack

We had an excellent service, we liked the smell of the pines, it was quiet at the beginning of the season as we went during the week, we appreciated everything and we want to go back. We were there for 3 days, the cabin, the bathroom and everywhere was clean. The cabin is in front of the bathroom. My wife and I liked the cabin with the small fridge the microwave and the coffeemaker included. We played at the rebuild minigolf, it was fun and it is at no cost. The owners, a couple are friendly and do all they can to please the customers. - rfq0705

Little Wolf campground is located on Little Wolf Lake and is one of the most beautiful locations we've camped at. Every site has a lake view and many of them are situated on the lake. We took one of the lakefront sites, faced the motorhome towards the lake and woke to an awesome view. Lakefront sites have water and 30amp electricity; the remainder of the sites have sewer too. The site we're in isn't very level but the jacks compensated well. Verizon is 4g, 5 bars. There's no TV signal, but with the view, who cares. Staff is great! Showed us all the available sites and let us choose the best one for us then followed-up a couple of times later. There's no public bathrooms or showers, but that's fine because we never use them. We will definitely stay here again. - fruffiii

We stay at this campground for their summer season and are very pleased with our stays. The campground is clean and well maintained. The manager is very pleasant and helpful. The other campers have been friendly. We really enjoy the children friendly attitude around here. It is so nice to sit by your campfire and watch the children play together and have someone walk by and stop for a visit. This is our second season here and hope to come back for many more. - frenchie1947

This is a city owned campground on a small lake. The internal roads are gravel and in good condition. Most of the sites are occupied by summer local residences. The staff were friendly and helpful showing me to my site. There is a swimming beach with lifeguards. The grass sites are basically level and the water pressure is good as is the power voltage. I followed the GPS to the park but there are also campground road signage directing one to the part. The sites have some trees but there's ample room to maneuver around them. There are NO laundry facilitates on the campground. I would camp there again when in the area. - flrop
