1 Park near Ogdensburg, New York
Jul 2015 - $26.00
First, the good: the park is a huge grassy area right on the St. Lawrence River, with shade trees at most sites. The customer service was outstanding and all of the staff very friendly. The sites were quite large, and although not very private, at least you weren't parked on top of your neighbors. The park is heavily patronized by day visitors, so its a little noisy during the day, but wonderfully quiet at night.
The bad: the site I was at and the one next to it had no water hookups, so the staff ran several hundred feet of their hose to our trailers. The water was very filmy for a day, probably due to sediment in the hose. Also, the water was too hot to shower with except early in the morning or late at night, because the hose was lying out in the sun. Since there were no sewers at the sites, you couldn't just run the hot water through till you got to cool water, because there was so much water in the length of hose they had. The water pressure was fine, though. Another issue I had was with the Wi-Fi. I don't mind when I get somewhere with no Wi-Fi, but I do mind being sold Wi-Fi by a third party who does not provide what is offered. The Wi-Fi service is run by a young man who does not have the skills required to keep it running. Also, he would not return phone calls or answer his phone most of the time. I will have to go to my credit card company for a refund. I do not think the park should keep sponsoring this individual. The service crashed for over a day and the young man told me he could not fix it because it was Sunday. It still was not fixed Monday. Finally, the seasonal residents next to me had several dogs that barked continually while I was there. I think the park management should handle this, rather than making visitors responsible for complaining to people who are obviously not well mannered in the first place. For these reasons, a park with fairly good potential was not the greatest experience for me. - KAP99

Very nice family park right along the St. Lawrence River. Nice beach and lots of activities for families. Very busy on the weekends but much quieter during the week. Staff and Park Manager were excellent and very accommodating when we asked to stay an additional night. Some sites are little unlevel, including ours. Our front tires were off the ground. Would stay again. - ds_dandy

The campground is great. Nice sites with plenty of room between them. Nice areas to walk and take the dogs. Good central .location for exploring the area. Nice view of the river. Half the sites have water hook up on the wrong side so bring plenty of hose. If you plan your visit near the end of May BEWARE of the shad fly infestation. Makes walking driving or sitting out next to impossible. Next time we will come at another time of year. - elaine170
