Our site was in the "Hilltop" section, and we had one of the few sites with individual water service. Our 50 amp electric was solid and reliable. The park is very clean and well maintained, with workers regularly visiting the restrooms and restocking as needed. Our site was reasonably large, and could easily accommodate the largest RV's. Some may find the steep road grade leading to this section challenging though. The tree cover at our site made satellite dish aiming difficult, but we were able to "see" the Dish eastern arc satellites ok. Verizon cell service was weak, but our on board cell amplifier/repeater handled it well. OTA TV is limited, but we did find a fairly strong signal from a Utica station that carries NBC on their primary channel, and CBS on a secondary channel. Gilbert Lake is somewhat of a secret, and the park was very lightly occupied while we were there during the week. I expect it does get busier on the weekends. All in all, this is a nice park to visit to just relax, and a number of attractions are nearby, such as the Baseball Hall of Fame in nearby Cooperstown. We will return here fairly often since our granddaughter and great granddaughter live nearby. - NYDutch

We were in Hill Top loop in a spacious, level, well shaded site, with gravel & grass, with water & 30A electric, grounds were clean & well maintained.
Bathrooms & showers were clean & always well stocked.
The only strange thing I found about this campground, was the fact that this is the Only CG we've ever been in that had NO trash cans, anywhere in the loop, however the dumpsters/recycle bins were centrally located.
This is a very quiet, slightly out of the way campground, there are numerous restaurants & places to shop in Oneonta, about 14 mi away.
There is a nice lake with fishing & swimming, a beach & hiking trails.
There are also numerous cabins for rent for those without an RV.
While there is no sewer, there is a dump station.
If we ever find ourselves in the area again, we will certainly stay here again. - bukhrn

We stayed in an electric camp site, which meant full sun, but there was always a breeze. We were close to the restrooms. Restrooms were better than some RV parks we have seen, always clean. Private showers (two men, two women, two handicapped) Weird, never had to wait though? We will return. - C H

Overall this is our kind of park. Small, well cared for, pride of ownership. Water, electric and WIFI worked well. Lots of covered bridges in the area. There are 2 ponds and one lake on the property. We camped here in a 40' motorhome. - illini777

The quiet peaceful nature of this park was enhanced by staying midweek so most of the seasonal and transient sites were unoccupied. We stayed in the big rig section which was level grass accessed partly by gravel interior road followed by driving through a grassy meadow. Many sites are heavily wooded. Wi-Fi was slow but other services were good. Phone service was good and directly from AT&T but data service was from an affiliated provider. The many minor roads necessary to find the park are poorly marked. It is a Good Sam park but the discount is not offered for the first night when making reservations. - never settled

What a Gem! It's off the road but a real nice park. Very well maintained, extremely quiet and has very helpful staff. Call for directions. It is Big Rig friendly. We will stay here again when visiting UpState NY. - Mike & Elaine Austin

First of all, if it rains you will need a 4-wheel drive motorhome or other vehicle to go up the long, steep, curving and winding dirt road to the campground. On a dry, clear day our motorhome and black jeep were covered in dirt and dust so much so that the jeep looked "white." We were shown to a pull-through site that was SO uneven that we could not level, even using all the boards we carried. To make matters worse, people from the row behind us were using our campsite as a path to and from the swimming pool. And our campsite was not wide. After 45 minutes of all this, we determined we could not stay here, even for one night. The owners did give us a refund. Good luck if you have to go up that road to the campground if it's wet. - RV Fun

After reading the reviews we found this park to be a disappointment. Only one review mentioned that the road in was a little rough. It was much more than that. It is a VERY steep, gravel road, very dusty and it is too difficult for a Big Rig. We didn’t have a choice as there is no place to turn around until you get to the top. The water had a metallic taste and smell and the pressure was low. While the spots are very large and wide they are not anywhere near level. There is no cable TV and only a few spots are open enough to attempt to get satellite TV. They advertise wi-Fi but it is not free. It requires payment to an outside vendor for a daily, weekly or monthly rate only good for one computer and the signal is pretty weak. They seem to be more geared to weekenders and renting out the cabins they have. After 9 years of full timing all over the US we do not feel this is a Big Rig friendly park and it is overpriced for the amenities they provide. We will not be returning. - thelackemanns

This is the second time we have stayed at this campground. We stayed here because it is close to the AllStar Village that our son played in. We loved being here! The view is beautiful, the owners are top notch, and the location is peaceful. The owners are constantly making improvements. They have added a mini playground area and laundry facilities were being added right when we left. We will camp here again with out any hesitation. Thanks for a great week! - mattnick2

The rate reflects our Passport America discount. The check-in staff was friendly and helpful. The park is an easy on/off from I-88. Our 30 amp back-in site was clean and well maintained, with well placed utilities. There a just a couple of pull-thru sites and 50 amp sites, but the weather was cool while we were there, so no A/C was needed anyway. The satellite view for our dish was clear, and our Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile cell phones and Internet hotspots all had strong signals and good 4G/LTE service. We were only here for two nights, but found the park quiet at night, and very convenient to the attractions and amenities in and around Oneonta. We will certainly return here when visiting Oneonta again. - NYDutch

Lovely little campground. Had a very nice pull through spot with a beautiful view of grass field and trees. All the sites are well maintained and nicely sized. Campground was very quiet and peaceful. Great place to stop on fall leaf viewing trip. Did not use any of the facilities so rating only reflects site and hookups, and overall look of campground. Would definitely stay here again. Staff very nice and check in went quick and easy. Used Passport America discount and stayed for $25, great value. - SStraveler

Greeted by owner upon arrival. Checked in by new employee who was cheerful and helpful. Owner directed everyone to their sites and assisted them with parking. Beautiful setting with mountains all around and framed on three sides by a creek with bass and trout. Unfortunately, we were only here for 1 night. Some of our group plan to return on their way back home. - Toby's dad

This is a family campground which runs baseball training camps for kids. There are two baseball fields in the park, one of professional dimensions. We were there to visit the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, about 12 miles from the campground. The access road off Highway 28 starts with a very steep hill and then winds uphill for several miles. Near the top of the hill you turn left at the T and the road gets even smaller with trees impinging on the roadway. It is a short distance but we had to pull over to allow opposing traffic to pass without driving through trees. Once in the park, there is plenty of room to maneuver. Office personnel were very friendly. Our site was located next to some cabins which housed a youth baseball team that was competing in a tournament in town. Parental supervision was lacking, children left trash left on our site and in our fire ring. Noise wasn't a problem, all activity ceased by quiet time. The sewer connections was an 8" tall pipe, gravity flow was not possible. I used our macerator to pump the tanks rather than fight with the 3" hose full of sewage. Wifi was working for us which was good because we were pretty much off the grid for cell phone service. - LivinTheDream

We arrived a day prior to our reservations and they were able to accommodate us and said it worked out better because Friday they would be full in the full hookup area. We came from Minnesota to watch our son coach, and our grandson play in the Field of Dreams Parks Tournament. The RV park was nicely located as it is only a few miles from the Dreams Park and close enough to Cooperstown that it is an easy drive. It is a steep winding road up to the RV location if you follow the GPS. Take Seminary Road off the main road and it is easier. The sites are all grass, and fairly level. They had rain so we had to back through a little mud, but no problem. Person at the front desk was friendly. When I asked if my son and grandson could visit she said absolutely not. They had a policy of no visitors. But as you leave the office to go to your site, there is a sign that says all visitors must register. In their rules and regulations they say no visitors, but if you have a son staying elsewhere they are welcome and able to come in. Don’t know to this day what their policy is. Would have been nice to have our son and grandson over for a home cooked meal. The grounds are neat and clean. We did not use the pool but it was large and looked clean. Don't believe it is heated. The place could use a little tender loving care like sanding and re-staining the picnic tables, cut around all grass areas, and put away old machinery etc. Dumpsters located at one area only, and no trash drums set out in the park. We wanted to leave a day early but they do not refund payments less than five days prior to the cancellation. This is even though they had all the full hookup sites, except ours, open and available. They also charge $7.00 per night for each additional adult and $2.00 a night for a pet. Our total bill for four nights was $248.00. A little pricey for what you get. In site A9, where we stayed, we had to hook together two sewer hoses to connect. They had open cabins and open RV sites, but they put us right next to a occupied cabin. It would have been a little more considerate to give us and the people in the cabin additional space. - DBG

We reserved for two nights and were charged for one night non-refundable. I paid for the second night when we got there. We went to our site and checked the park out and decided it was not what we expected. No cable or Wi-fi and a rather dumpy place. I asked for a refund for the second night and was told they don't give refunds. What a great business policy. We left the next day without refund, but it was worth losing the money just to get out of there. There are much better options in the area. - LTC Frame

Older park with few upgrades. Sites are uneven grass and dirt. Our water and electric hookups were 30 feet from the sewer. The cable hookup was another 25 feet back and did not work. Not much room between sites. Lots of things for kids, but we have no kids. Nice pool. 30 minute drive to Cooperstown. - Corninggirl

We were here a week (in our 42 foot coach) because our grandson was in a tournament in Cooperstown which is about a half hour away. Our hosts were great and very willing to accommodate our needs! This is a rustic campground with grass sites. They had had a lot of rain before we got there and as a result our site over looking the lake had some mud. One of our jacks got stuck between the mud and the jack pad during setup. The manager went above and beyond to get it released! After that everything went smoothly! They have a beautiful pool, boating and fishing on the lake, and tons of activities for kids and families! Verizon cell does not work in the campground, there is no internet and the cable TV was pretty sketchy. But for a family to get away from it all, it's a great place to escape! - Tugboat & Annie

We only chose this place because we were visiting our 5 grandchildren and my son, and great "entertainment" for them (ages 5-14). The kids liked it, but that's about all the "good" I can say about it! Here's the bad: The sites are so unlevel that they are very difficult to get level (with many boards), plus most have the hook-ups way up front which also made for very difficult parking a back-in site! Some of the sites are in complete shade all of the time (ours) and some in total sun all of the time (my son's); unless you 'know' the park, it's the luck of the draw! Then, there's the traffic! Golf carts, vans, trucks, cars, zoom, up, down, in, out, back and forth all day and night to & from all the locations of the park making it hard to actually walk to them! The pool and the slip n' slide (only free things) were not heated, and with the temp's not getting above the mid 70's, the kids could only last so long before they turned blue. Weekends were better, as they have more "organized activities" going on, but not so much during the week-even though it was still "summer" hours. The park pretty quiet during the week. This would not be a place I would choose to come back to. Even the staff was bored, paying very little attention to the kids. Absolutely NO: WIFI, TV, CELL SERVICE, ETC!! you are in a big hole there, having to drive at least 10 miles to even get a decent cell service! - MarieB

This is a very nice, clean gated park. The entrance is beautiful and well maintained. We were on site F15, which was wooded. These sites are very spacious with lots of shade. There is lots of room for kids to play and two very clean dog parks. I give the park an extra point for recycling and for the dog park. - Michael47

Very mixed feelings about this park. No cable TV is a known...but still frustrating when you also cannot get any over the air OR AM talk stations without interference. WIFI is advertised but there is NO throughput available. I used up my months data allocation on cell phone here.
The pool is small, warm, 4.5 ft deep and a few 8 buck plastic chairs are the only nod to poolside comfort. But clean, as are the bathrooms despite not being the most modern.
On the plus side: the setting is beautiful, the roads & sites are good & big. You can have open or shaded. It's a great place for baseball playing kids and the staff is warm and friendly and helpful.
It is the closest park to Cooperstown (wonderful) and you should come in on SEMINARY RD. from route 28. Not the CR11 your GPS will give you: which is a steep climb.
Overall: I'd stay here again if I wanted to see Cooperstown, but not for long! - Camaraderie

Great Campground for visiting Cooperstown or playing at Dream Parks! Very clean and very well run! I would recommend this campground to anyone. It made our 10 night stay a very good experience to remember forever. - Swampman

The campground was convenient for its proximity to Cooperstown, which is where the National Baseball Hall of Fame is located. We stayed in a full service site. Cable and Internet were fine. There is a large grassy area for recreation and the pond area is scenic. Duck families and an occasional deer. However,we were disappointed overall . The petting zoo was not functioning and looked very neglected. The miniature golf course was in extreme disrepair. The one paddle boat was not maintained, the interior very dirty. The pool which is across the street was very murky and full of pine needles. There were none of the activities advertised. The arcade had poor lighting and there was a strong odor from the animal area that was next to it. The owners are new and were friendly but the campground should not have been opened this season due to the many things that had to be repaired or maintained. We felt it was unfair to pay full rates when few of the amenities were available. We would not return to this campground. - misspip

After reading the other reviews, I made the reservations with unease. The campground was muddy but it had rained (poured) for days. The bathhouses, while very rustic, were very clean. But I was not expecting Fort Wilderness for $35.00 a night. When we arrived the campsite we were suppose to have was so muddy they gave us a different site. We took up 3 sites. They pulled up signs and helped us back it in. While we were there my husband became ill and needed to go to ER. They called ahead to see the wait time and gave me great directions. We needed gas for the camper (it was very cold that weekend). They went to our camper, got the tank, filled it and hooked it back to camper. They went out of there way for us. We would go back. - camperfire fun

This park is very basic. Sites 1-6 are shared power and water, if you get the odd site you will need extensions to reach connections, sewer is on the correct side for each site. WiFi was low being that the general store was the base and not that far away, adding a out door antenna would help that. The site area needed a mowing but other wise was level with limited blocking needed. If sewer hook up is not needed, sites 30a/b, 84-88 are shaded. If you have a longer trailer you should go to sites 38-43. VZ and other wireless carriers at one or two bars. The rest room was clean and basic, had an out house feel to it. If dry camping or tenting: 23-26 are in a low area and run the risk of getting flooded out if it rains hard. Sites 22, 23, 27 and the rest in that loop are on a high point or have good drainage if it rains. The play ground(s) are very basic. The pony ride is a one trip only around and no seconds. The hayride goes for a 30-45 minute trip around the camps sites then out on a nature trail and back. The rec hall is in a old barn. The mini-golf is in need of major work, not really usable. I picked this campground for being pet friendly to larger dogs (Rotti). I never saw the pool, others in our group did and said it needed a good cleaning. I would look elsewhere if in the area again, but would not write this campground off. It's just at the bottom of my list. - Ramcharger459

Not easy to get to so not a good overnight spot. No TV reception. Good cell and Verizon aircard signal. Mostly a huge open field with sites around the edge. No shade other than the shadows from the forest edge trees. Roads are gravel and easy to maneuver. Sites are grass and most are not very level. Full hook ups with electric and sewer in the expected location but the water spigot was not that close. Expect to probably need a 25ft water hose. The bathhouse was very rustic and old. I rated them as clean because they were but they did not look very nice. Large selection in the camp store. The nearest store was 13 miles away. The campground is not really near anything. I would probably not return mainly because of that. But, if I was already in the area I would return to this campground. - camper19709

Nightly rate reflects a monthly stay, during the month of May. This is a beautiful 50 acre property, with gently rolling expanses of green grass. There are trees interspersed throughout, but not enough to provide shade unless it's the right time of day. Sites are somewhat level, but there's no pavement or gravel, and ground is soft. Utility connections are dated. There is no cable TV, nor can you pick up any radio or TV signals over the air. On the plus side, there are nice walking trails, and the wildlife was teaming everywhere. The owners insist on recycling, and using their clear plastic trash bags, and it's quite a walk to the single dumpster near the office. Showers were utilitarian, but clean. The owners were very nice people. - Albino Rhino

This park is not easy to find. Not much signage on Hwy 23 and what there is, is very small except for one sign right when you turn, which is too late to turn if you're traveling 45 miles per hour. Very rural and rustic. Nice people at check in. Was taken to our site which is very grassy this time of year. We elected to pay the $4 extra for sewer hookup. There is no cable here but we have our own internet with our iphones and there is very good reception. For a one night stay it's a very good place; fairly close to I88 between Binghampton and Albany, NY. We would stay here again but my husband would be bored but there are activities to partake of. - leciel19

We arrived in the middle of a thunderstorm that left inches of rain on the road and several inches on our site. We had only been able to reserve a 30 amp site online but when we arrived and the owner found out we had 50 amp he placed us in a site serviced by 50 amps. The adjoining site was right next to us with the hookups between us and barely enough room to walk between the RVs with sides out. There is a trout stream in the campground so there are no sewer hookups at any of the sites per law. The owner said they plan on putting some in "on the hill" away from the stream in the future. The roads from the Interstate are narrow and winding and it is about 7 miles to the campground with little in the area. - BandPS
