3 RV Parks near Lowville, New York
Jun 2006 - $19.00
When I was a young child, my family use to go to this campground and my memories of camping there with extended family are some of the best childhood memories that I have. My wife and I and some friends decided to try the campground out after many years. I was a bit reluctant, having placed this campground in such high esteem based on those great childhood memories, and not knowing the current condition of the park. I was not at all let down. It is a small park, only 56 sites, but the sites are large, very wooded and some are electric. The swimming area is created by damming the Whetstone Creek. It is a very quaint, very nice campground with some excellent hiking trails and an excellent fishing spot at the Reservoir just up the road. We will return so that our children have good memories of this campground too. - camping lansing

This park recently became a KOA branded park. It is very wooded. During our stay the fir trees dropped a prodigious number of small needles. Perhaps they are deciduous and do this in the early fall. However, they did cover our car every day, and necessitated a full sweeping of the motorhome roof and awnings before our departure. Our assigned site was spacious, but not particularly level. We ended up using extra blocks under both our front tires and the front jacks. The staff at this park are quite friendly and pro-active. Unfortunately they got a questionable reading on a water system test early in our two week stay. We were promptly informed, and the park provided bottled water for our use until they had several good readings. No cable TV is available, but we were able to get several broadcast channels. WiFi worked ok during the day and when the park was not full. We opted to switch back and forth between the park service and our own Verizon. - The Borgs

Very nice park away from the busy life. Right beside Fort Drum, some military activity heard sometimes. Owners and staff very accommodating. Lots of activities for the kids on the weekends. Indoor pool was nice on the rainy days. Small store. AT&T service good. Very quite during the week. Not sure why this is the Watertown KOA as Watertown is a 30 min drive away. - On the way

The staff is very friendly and the owners are working hard to make a nice campground. The sites are grass with lots of space between. As far as we could tell, only #32 had satellite access. The tree cover is too heavy any where else. Verizon 4G service is strong and data speeds were good. There is campground wifi but the the speeds were fairly slow. It would be adequate for email and web-surfing.
Be aware that this park is right next to Fort Drum, an army installation, where weapons practice takes place 24 hours a day. At times the explosions can be quite loud. They woke us up several times during our week long stay.
There is an indoor pool, a hayride upon request, and a playground. During the week, the park is nice and quiet, but on the weekends local campers with their children in tow make it quite noisy.
Be aware that although our rate reflects the Passport America discount, 2015 is the last year this campground is offering it as they are now affiliated with KOA. - FnEJ

Very friendly owner - came out in heavy rain to direct us into a spot A few sites are in an open, grassy area in the front, near the barn. Many more sites further back in the trees. We didn't use amenities and were well satisfied with a one-night stay near the barn. All three power options, water and sewer hookup available. - OlderGoat
