16 Parks near Montgomery, New York
Oct 2014 - $35.00
The extra fee for out of county residents is a bit much. The electricity kept fluttering and was not dependable to leave on during the night. Maps and any information were not available. We looked into the bath houses and it wasn't a hard decision NOT to use them. They are filthy and smell. We will drive on rather than stay here again. - Arizona Traveler

When we stayed again at this park last year, we were surprised to see the nightly rate had gone, in a year, from $20 to $35 for an electric site. The county decided to charge non-residents a $10 premium to stay in the park. Since we were set up before the ranger came by to collect, we paid for one night. We will not be staying again at this campground as the fee is simply not worth it. - Jay Rutherford

We stayed one night at this county-owned park on our way to New England. There was no one at the "office" so we picked our site and were visited later by a ranger to collect the fee, which included electrical service. Most of the sites did not appear too level. The provided map showed which sites accommodated what size rig and whether it had electrical service. Sites were generally spacious, located on a heavily wooded hill. Access for big rigs might be tight at many sites; the road, while paved, is narrow and winding. We think this park would be good for an overnight stop for people traveling on I-84 or NY 17. Fees on weekends are $5 more per night. Reservations are only accepted for the big weekends: Memorial Day, Labor Day, and July 4 when it falls on a 3 day weekend. Possession or consumption of alcohol is prohibited in the park; this message appears repeatedly on every building and in all printed materials. We would use this park as a stopover again when in the area. - Jay Rutherford

This is a very nice KOA. In the woods, lots of trees, decent
sized sites, paved roads ! Easy to get in and out. Lots to
do for kids, shuttle to NYC. - macandphyl

Some sites are satellite accessible. Good electric. Adequate water pressure. Internet speed varied between very good and fair. They charge an extra resort fee per night whether you use the facilities here or not. Fairly convenient to all the sites along the Hudson (West Point, Hyde Park, etc.) as well as to the train to Manhattan. There is lots to see in the area and being a KOA, the park itself tries to be a destination in itself with a pool and lots of activities for kids. They also provide a tour to New York once a week. It gets smoky at night because almost everyone builds a fire, even if its 85 degrees outside. Its about 11 miles from all the interstates. Sites are dirt with dirt roads but are wide. We have stayed here twice and would stay again. - literod

Overnight stop for me, but most people are here for a few days, perhaps longer. Nice pool, facilities. Staff efficient, helpful. Was easy to find my back-in site without needing an escort. No problem backing, site was level, utilities no problem, very good WiFI & cable. Extensive store: food, RV supplies, etc. Free pancakes in morning.
It is about as close as one can get to NYC. I would stay here again. Tours to NYC are offered, nice touch. Use your GPS to find this KOA: no problem but very helpful.
Cautions: Extra $6/night "resort fee." Not sure what this provides: perhaps the free breakfast and a fire truck circulating around the campgrounds.
Also be aware of strictly enforced two night minimum on Friday - Saturday. - John_SC

Trash strewn at the entrance and along the access road, narrow dirt roads with numerous potholes, the pond was covered with some green sludge, permanent sites' trailers covered in mildew. Staff rarely answered their phone. No wonder there's no TL or Woodalls listing for it. We pulled in, looked around, and left in a big hurry. - Choxnpinz

Nice Park for family's with kids. Was just my wife and I. We stopped in for two nights. At check-in they gave wristbands to put on, told us if we lost them it would be a $20. charge. If we got caught without them on they could throw us out. Not having fun yet. Dinner plans with some local friends. Not putting it on. Maybe a clip on badge would work better. The site was muddy with a street drain in the middle of it but level.
Great place for large family's. Not for couples. - Road Manager

Stayed for 4 days. Very well kept and friendly staff. Will return again. Water park was excellent. - usmc616

Sad to say that after camping in our RV for many years at Jellystone in Gardiner New York, this past Memorial Day 2016 weekend was my family's last.
This used to be a nice friendly family owned campground until it was sold to Michigan based Northgate Resorts making it a corporate owned campground. Under corporate ownership the rates have risen higher than any other campground in New York State. You are nickel & dimed to death for every little thing.
As with all campgrounds, there are rules to follow which I believe makes for better and safer camping. This campground has a list of rules that are given upon check-in. I was told that if we break any of the rules such as not wearing issued wristbands or move the fire ring, my credit card will be charged $25 for each offense. If you have a young child that happens to lose a wristband they also charge $25 for a replacement. I've been camping for 35 years and this is the first campground where I had to wear a plastic wristband and if I'm found not wearing it, I will be charged $25.
When we were here on Memorial Day weekend, the 10-month old water park was closed the entire time for repairs. When I called the campground office a few days ahead of our arrival I was told the water park would definitely be open for the holiday weekend. When we went to the Tiki Bar for ice cream we were told they didn't have any yet. How can you not have ice cream for a major holiday weekend?
The current top management has very poor customer service skills. When you ask a staff member a question, they cannot answer simple questions about the campground. They need to be trained in customer service skills and campground policy. With the new management in this campground the customer is always WRONG and it is now the campground of NO.
So if you like speeding golf carts, high prices and where the customers are not treated well by the staff, then this is the place for you. - Eagle75

This campground is kind of remote although it's about 15 minutes from a mall and a variety of shopping options. You have to navigate a bit of a narrow road to get here. For us this was a two night stop without any particular objective. On the plus side, we had full hookups with 30amp service. They have a pool and offer free WiFi which worked pretty well for us. Driveways are gravel in fairly good condition. Restrooms are rustic but OK. On the negative side, $50 per night seems too much given the facilities and the location. We had basically a dirt site with a little grass. After a little rain we were bringing mud into our motorhome on our feet. Their website is particularly unhelpful in explaining their facilities, hookups, etc. About the only thing you can determine from the website is the price. - Coopsecondact

This was quite a drive from I84 and you think you are lost, but you eventually get there. The good side is that it is quiet. Our site was large and very comfortable. The management is contracted by the Town of Wallkill and the staff is young and inexperienced in management skills. They allowed a young couple to "blast" music from their car radio while they played basketball. They allowed another woman to go balistic and yell offensive words at another person for about 20 minutes without taking any measures to maintain a quiet atmosphere. The campground itself is very nice, but it could be improved. We stayed three nights in a 27' motor home with tow. - Thirdtime

Just here for one night at the end of their season, but we loved it. Pulled through back in their group area. It was great. About 10 to 15 miles off the interstate and you wonder if you are going in the right direction but well worth it. Everything worked and folks were super nice. - WhoDat125

Stayed at this campground for 2 days while visiting friends and touring West Point. Campground is very nice. Pretty quiet, except when large groups having gatherings. However, the gatherings didn't bother us as they were over in the early evening. You can also hear firing ranges in the distance up until about 10 pm. However, having served in the Army for over 26 years, we were use to hearing firing on nearby ranges and it didn't bother us.\ at all. We had sort of missed the noise from the past. The camp staff were very friendly and helpful. Our site (C-9) was close to others but not a problem. The restroom was close to us which we did use. It was very clean. We would stay here during another visit to this area. We camped in a class C motorhome. - Tiger6

This is a very family oriented park. Lots for families to do. Feels like you are in the woods with nearby neighbors. No sewer, but dump close by. Friendly staff. Roped off swimming area. - DigMyPast

We stayed here for a weekend in July so we could tour West Point. The positives about the campground are that it's a very pretty facility that surrounds a large pond. The bathrooms were fairly modern and clean, the staff was friendly, and the sites were roomy. It was just a few minutes from West Point so it was perfect for our purposes. Unfortunately, as much as we liked the positives, the negatives were also substantial. First off, the campground is right next to several artillery ranges. We heard gunfire and heavy artillery almost non-stop from 7 AM until late in the evening (at least 10:30 some nights). Although we thought it was rather funny and part of the ambiance, if you have kids that are light sleepers or dogs afraid of fireworks or thunder, rethink coming here. Also, we were at a site at the back side of the pond which was very tight to park in. We had to make a 90 degree turn into a driveway with a fence on each side, and a sheer drop down the side of a hill on the other side of the road. Also, the bathrooms were a very long walk down a narrow road for the few sites that were past it. The dump station was near the bathrooms and the road around the campground is one-way, so if you are in the sites past it, you need to actually leave the campground and come back in to use the dump station on the way out (and back in to it!). Next, we thought we'd be fine using our own facilities for the weekend since the web site states that they have honey wagon service for $5. When we showed up, however, we were told that it was actually $8, and only offered on Fridays and Mondays. Doesn't do weekenders a lot of good. Lastly, as others have mentioned, the road into the campground is very steep and very winding. - GoldenGirl

Just finishing up our second season here as seasonal campers. In season there is some kind of entertainment every weekend. Breakfast every Saturday and Sunday. Friendly and hard working owner and staff. Highly recommend this place. We are very happy here. - VinnyP

My favorite part of this campground is that I have yet to stay in a tight site. Most of the sites I have stayed in are very spacious. Clean bathrooms and showers and a large beautiful pool. They have farmers markets on site and food vendors. Very festive environment on the weekends. WiFi is available to the sites but you have to pay for it. Sites are level, and some are covered in grass which was a nice treat.
The store was often left unmanned and didn't have much inventory, almost an afterthought. Also, not sure I'd call the staff friendly. I'd say they are closer to being a bit on the arrogant side. Nothing negative, just in comparison to other campgrounds the staff was a bit on the cold side. But all in all a nice campground. I would go again. - Riot Pat

We stayed here while helping in a youth camp for the week. The rate shown is for a week-long stay. We pre-paid so once the correct person arrived at the counter, checking in was easy. We were given a site amid several well kept seasonal/long term sites and it was quiet and shady. There was a nice amount of room between the sites, which we liked and we backed up to some woods, which we always like! The site was level and was gravel. All hook-ups were sufficient but there was no cable that we could find. Wi-Fi is not included but there is a subscription site that was very cheap for the week ($13 or so). It worked pretty well considering cell service was hit and miss. Since we were working all week, we didn't really have time to explore the campground but it looked well taken care of. The weekend had themes which seemed fun. They have a small convenience store and restaurant that had a breakfast buffet on the weekends. We did stop for that before heading out and it was very good. Overall one of the nicest places we have stayed. - DeannaS

Nice park near a nice town (Florida). Transient site up a hill, no problems. My back-in was level, very good WiFi & cable. My site was a bit far from the office & store, but within walking distance down the hill. Staff friendly, gave good directions to site, but no escort offered (or required). I Stayed overnight, would do so again. - John_SC
Jul 2016 - $80.00
Somewhat expensive but understandable being close to NYC where everything is expensive.
They offer a guided tour to NYC which we took and was well worth the $115.00. Our tour was on a weekend so traffic was lighter than normal so our guide and driver took us for a short drive though Manhattan to see some extra sites like the Ed Sullivan Theatre and Radio City Music Hall. The balance of the tour was Time Square, Ground Zero, Ellis Island and of course the Statue of Liberty.
We stayed in a pull thru close to the office but most of the sites are up on the hill which is a steep climb to get there plus it's a long ways back to the office or pool so most people would drive there than walk. - 08UltraRider

The park is too expensive, which is the only reason for the less than excellent ratings on value and overall. It has good level large sites with convenient connections. Very nice and clean restrooms. The private showers were nice but we weren't too thrilled with the push to operate and single temperature. They staff was friendly and helpful though not experts on New York City. They put on some craft activities that our daughter enjoyed in the recreation center. - FLRamblers

This "resort" would best be described as a traditional trailer park. Many "seasonals" are present. We spoke to one very nice lady who has lived there for 12 years. Our campsite was level and FHU under the spreading pine trees. Our site was way in the back, so it was either drive to the front or hike. The on-site cafe was very nice. Food was good. - moderate camper

We have been members of this campground for 29 years, the price per day without membership is $60 plus. We have seen it go downhill. They now allow yearly site rental and sale of cabins. Most sites are maintained but others are poor. Cable TV very poor, said they are upgrading. Water has a horrible smell. Grounds are well maintained. Restrooms are dated. - philandterri35

With the exception of the pool, this park is very rundown and in desperate need of maintenance and repair. Roads and sites are in poor condition. The owners show little interest in the upkeep of the park and would sell out given an interested buyer. We were the only short term visitor. All others were seasonal and apparently long term occupants. - skigoldsboro

Sorry we didn't know about this web site before we stayed. The pull-through we had was full of puddles and high grass making it impossible to keep your feet dry. A lot of run down trailers in the park and no one was friendly, including the owner. I would avoid this park at all costs. - jimhilz

We DID NOT stay here. We were looking for a place south of the Catskills that had open sites for satellite reception, and was reasonably priced (if you have Passport America, half price Sun-Thu). We just didn't like the looks of the place. It was run down and just looked junky as you pull up. Admittedly the playground looks nice and the pool looked clean. Once you drive past the office, the paved road turns into a rough gravel road that is almost just a two-track. Seems to be a lot of seasonal sites. - Big Rig Full Timer
