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

We arrived at the park and our reservations were correct. Very nice easy pull-through spot, and more important it was DRY. There was no standing water in the park, except for after a severe rain shower but puddles dried up quickly. The owners are friendly, the firewood is affordable, and the park is quiet. We camped over the 4th of July weekend, the owners had activities all weekend (nice). Even with all the people (around 130 spots)the park was very quiet. The bathrooms/showers are very clean and all worked. They have an on-site laundry facility which we did not use. The pool is indoors, and my kids tell me it is very nice. Over all a VERY positive experience and we would not hesitate to stay there again if we go back to that area. - Volker

Nice secluded campground. Sites are dirt with lots of pine needles which is a problem if it rains - which it did. Rate is the PA rate. It is about 60 minutes to Tupper Lake but the drive was spectacular with the fall color change. - rockfarmer

Nice enough park, with the only big negative being the price. The sites are very large, and although there are no trees, so no privacy, you are a good ways away from your neighbors. Service was outstanding from the famcamp staff and host, friendly but not knowledgeable from outdoor rec. Unfortunately, you have to deal with both. No wifi, except for sale at outrageous rates, but Verizon works fine. Park is very well maintained. Lots of bike/hike trails nearby. Concrete pad absolutely level. - KAP99

This is for military (including retiree) or eligible DOD civilians only. There are RV 16 sites with one taken by the camp host (very helpful!) and there seem to be a couple of overflow sites that have FHU but not on large space nor with level concrete pad. Spaces are huge with plenty of room for tow vehicle or truck, set up screen room or have a game of croquet. Minimal noise other than standard bugle calls and occasional fly overs by helicopters. Bathhouse was large, clean and convenient. Base does recycling of standard metal, paper, plastic and glass. There are plans to get WiFi in the future, but for now you will need to use the base library (closed on Sunday) or rent "hot spot" from MWR at outrageous price. Over the air TV is minimal; could only get Watertown with two commercial stations (CBS/ABC/Fox) and PBS. Having stayed at other service campgrounds, this one is a bit pricey at $35 given the paucity of amenities. We would stay here again, if in the area. - Too-wow
