16 Parks near Lewis, New York
Jul 2016 - $40.00
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

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 chose this campground based on the excellent reviews written about it earlier this year. It did not disappoint us. We were allowed to choose the site we wanted then escorted to our site by the owners. During the process of setting up, the other owner stopped by to introduce herself and welcome us to their campground. Everything is clean, well taken care of, the owners are friendly and helpful, it is very pet friendly. the campground is beautiful and right on the banks of Lake Champlain. We liked it so well, we are planning to return for a week next year. - jetstream

Wonderful family-owned and operated quaint, secluded park in the Adironacks. Park sits on the shores of Lake Champlain, and the lake is easily accessed by a short hike down stairs or along a forested path. Lake can be seen in the distance from camp.
Some sites are packed gravel, but others are dirt or grass. Our site was packed gravel and quite level. Electricity was reliable and water pressure good. Wifi was adequate, although it slowed down a little in the evening with heavier use.
The owners schedule activities throughout the season, and there is a nightly community fire. The majority of campers are seasonals, but each and every site is well maintained and clean.
We enjoyed this campground so much that we extended our stay an additional 2 weeks. Very friendly, family atmosphere where everyone knows one another. Definitely an unknown gem! We WILL return next time we're in this neck of the woods! - CWinLV

Great park, our new favorite. Quiet and secluded with some waterfront on Lake Champlain (walk down a short shady path). Family owned and run park. Well maintained, restrooms and showers are always spotless. Owners are polite and friendly and will go out of their to help a camper in need. The campground hosts a fire every night. Quite a few sites are occupied by weekend seasonal campers, so the park is pretty empty during the week. The seasonal sites are well done with 11- 15 miles to the nearest grocery store or Walmart. Kid activities are limited to swimming in the lake, pool or fishing. Wifi is a little slow but has a strong signal.. The owners make a point of letting you know this both verbally and in the camp brochure. We tow a 22' long trailer behind our 40' coach, so making the turn down into the main camping, where the pull throughs are located, was a little hairy which is why I gave it an overall rating of 9. The roads are hard packed gravel and make wide enough turns for a 45' rig. My wife wants to make this park our summer home when we finish exploring the northern part of the country. - NewmarNewbie

We stayed on a weekday so the park was mostly empty. Great water and mountain views. Good canoeing. Our site had no hookups. We did not use the public toilets, so I have no comment. Fresh water and dump station access was good. Access roads within the park were good. Every site was level. There no TV reception using a standard amplified antenna. - R V Camper

Rate reflects required reservation fee which makes it a bit 'high' for no hook-ups. Add $2 for site with 'lake view' and No senior discounts. Activities and sites etc. remain as previous reviews. Most all sites in the big loop are in an open area good for solar and satellite, and would accommodate most any size rig despite the on-line suggestions. Fuel and grocery services are a bit away. Pool is only 3 feet deep, left over from the Girl Scout Park days. I liked this park as evidently do many 'locals' on the weekends, and would stay again for several days to make the daily average fee more reasonable. - SailorGolf

Beautiful location but not good if you want any hookups. Very few trees so in 95 degree summer weather our MH got too hot. Very little shade. The view from our site was worth staying for a few days but we were traveling with dogs and the MH just got too hot. There is limited generator use and for us it wasn't enough. Try and get site T52, unbelievable view. - The Sandbox

I camped at other campgrounds with all the bells and whistles then here. I enjoyed this trip more, nothing over-the-top but a nice campground. The adventures of the chasm directly across the street is why we will return. Unlike any experience in NY State. Highly recommended!! - RiggsandClem

Very old & musty bathrooms. Showers were tiny, but fairly clean. Very hilly & unlevel lots, but nice & shady. Okay for overnight after touring the gorgeous Ausable Chasm. - Jeter1954
Jul 2007 - $29.00
Formerly a KOA. Needs some work, but it was ok to use as a base for visiting the local area. Stayed five nights. Site was surrounded by tall pines, but was open enough to see the stars at night. It was all grass, fairly level, w/picnic table and fire ring. Campground shower area was private with each of the shower areas having its own entry door. Didn't see or hear anything about the thefts as mentioned in the previous post. We were near the front of the campground and therefore close to the office so that may have provided some protection. Interior roads were rough in some areas, but not bad enough to do any damage. - JWEngle

When we pulled in and went into the office, we were surprised, it is small and overwhelmed with 'stuff.' But the woman behind the desk seemed to have it under control. She was friendly and courteous and a gentleman stepped into the office to help her. Our site was huge, more room than previous campgrounds we've stayed at. Cable TV had more than enough channels and our Wi-Fi hookup, although 'low,' was adequate to get online and do whatever you had to do. We were next to the highway which didn't bother us and the occasional train went by. I was disappointed that I couldn't actually see any as they passed by. The trains weren't that bothersome, either. In all, we enjoyed our stay - Ausable Chasm which is about four miles south is an awesome place to visit. - Patches

Owners were very friendly, but was disappointed when a cigarette was lit while we were signing in. Sites were large, dirt and grass with concrete patio slabs. Our site was was not even close to level and trash was strewn around behind our campsite. Campground is rundown and needs some work, especially the roads. Restrooms, showers and laundry were extremely rundown and dirty. Cable TV and internet were good. We camped here three nights. - golplt

Sites are reasonable size and services generally functioned as advertised. Office is old, cramped, unclean, and filled with cigarette smoke. The park is noisier than we like. Pool filled on the weekends with children, highway noise behind our site, frequent trains day and night, and weekend karaoke music until 11 pm loud enough to hear inside every rig across the entire park. Laundry facilities consist of one working washer and a dryer that did not dry anything. Laundry building and restroom/bathhouse are old and deteriorated, open to all the elements and bugs, chicken-wire doors, if any, open wood slat floors, leaking water, dirty/moldy showers, no light or A/C in laundry building except for open door. Site electric posts have no fuse, an obvious safety concern when plugging in since we couldn't turn it off first. Will not stay here again. - revs2010

We stayed the night before going into the Champlain Valley fair grounds for a rally so we could arrive with full fresh water tank and empty waste tanks. The camping area is convenient for visiting the Shelburne Museum. The site we were in was supposed to be a pullthrough (to pull through diagonally) but we would have been hard pressed to hook up our electric or sewer if we had parked diagonally across the site. The site was deep enough for us to be able to back in and have our tow vehicle parked beside us.
The signage for the office was lacking; after turning in off of highway 7, it was not at all obvious where the office was - we just kept on driving straight down and eventually came across it. - pattic777

When I pay $47 to a camp ground, I expect the things they advertise to work: cable, wifi. I expect the roads to be pretty smooth and the site to be level and wide enough to back into without several attempts to adjust for the trees. I don't expect to step into muddy dirt in my spot. I expect a decent bathroom with more than a concrete floor and wet spots around the toilets and plenty of bugs. I expect the advertised pool to be more than 3 feet deep. I expect to be offered a partial refund if these things don't work. Next time I'll try the parks north of Burlington. - Camaraderie

There are not many campground choices for a 40 foot motorhome in the Burlington area. We stayed here two nights and it was very convenient for us. However, the park was not very well maintained and is located back behind a rundown motel and cabins. The space was tight. But it was all we needed and we were happy to have found a spot. There are a number of seasonal campers. - ArkansasTraveler

This is one great place if you are into nature as the park is on Lake Champlain and the Ausable River. Our site (#19) backed up to the lake with a view of Burlington, VT. The lake front has two beach areas and plenty of fishing, lake and river. The bad part for some of the campers was the Sat. night storm took down some trees and all the power lines, so campground was unattended with no water or toilets and showers. This was not a problem for us as we are self contained. The good thing was when rangers showed Monday morning and didn't charge us and refunded everyone in the park who had paid. Great state conservation area. Sites are very large and some will hold up to 40' RVS. - Mikeeg

We selected this site on the internet using the Reserve America web site. The web site indicated that the site we chose would take a 35ft motorhome. We were very disappointed with the site. Just enough room for the motorhome and not much room for anything else. And we were next to a swamp and almost living on top of our neighbors - who had two tents and lots of visitors. We booked for three nights but stayed only one. We tried to get another site but the campground was full and the campground staff were not very interested. We will not be staying in this campground again. We stayed in site 100. - sandgropers

Nice very quiet private campground. Sites are on the larger size for a private campground. No screening between sites. Staff was helpful and friendly. Laundry facilities are modern and clean. Looks like about half the sites are occupied by seasonal campers, but they are all very nice and a quiet group. Utilities are good and very good wifi worked at our site. We would definitely stay here again. - User3589

This was a decent place to stay for the month we were in the area. The monthly rate was reasonable. While we didn't find the people of New York to be particularly friendly, the gentleman that manages this park is an exception once you've been there a while. Most of the sites are occupied by seasonal/annual campers so as is often the case, weekends were busier and a bit louder. Lots of shade on each site. We were happy for a larger outdoor rug as the sites are quite sandy. We would stay here again if we were in the area. - The Shaws

Place was OK but older and run down. Staff was OK. If first impressions mean a lot, this one didn't do too well. Front office and store old and cluttered, not real organized. Plenty of hats and T-Shirts but overpriced at $17.00. Not sure why I didn't really care for the place but one issue for me was the roads around the campground. They were full of pot holes. The roads needs an overhaul with lots of gravel. The patchwork and repairs haven't worked too well. We moved over to maybe the only site that has satellite access for TV (#39). Small swimming pool looked good. We have a nice view of the pond. Not sure we'd be back. - rwarner22
