9 Parks near Ogdensburg, New York

Nearly all sites were sunny, pleasant location, vast, well mowed grassy areas that were well tended - great for walking dogs. Seagulls loved the location, right next to the river, we watched with amusement at camp host who exercised his setter several times a day, chasing the gulls away, seemed very effective. The host was extremely helpful and guided us to our site - clean facilities. Our spot required only minor leveling, no obvious traffic noise from the HWY. - Dondi-496

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

Great location, we stayed at a site on the water. The internet was a little iffy, good water, and power. The view is fantastic, the staff were helpful and nice..Not alot in Prescott...but we didn't need to go anywhere....you could bring a small boat...it looked like easy access. - new 5th wheeler

First time here. Heard great reviews. This is a leased managed park that is owned by the St. Lawrence Parks Commission. Grassy sites, no mats permitted and really you do not need them here. Water on your site, beaches are nice, pet swimming area. Lots of seasonals.
50 amp not available, but lots of big units using adapters. Our unit is 30 amp but did need the power reset twice. We weren't running everything, but it was a warm weekend.
Dump station and pump out service is available for a fee. 3 bundles of firewood run you $25 cdn or $10 each.
Great view of the St. Lawrence and ship traffic. 2km from Johnstown, On and 4km from Prescott, On. Ogdenburg, NY / Johnstown, ON International Bridge 2 minutes. You can view the whole bridge span from the park. Office and staff contact is basically office hours only. If you need wood/propane/pump out or power reset, you need to do it during office hours. - The Allens

We really loved this park. It is right on the St. Lawrence seaway. We had a pull-through site. The rate was Passport America and cash payment. This park has a large number of seasonal sites but very well maintained. The land is owned by some kind of Canadian Parks commission and all seasonal sites must be vacated in the window - the RV and all patios, sheds must be removed. This keeps the seasonal RV sites very clean and uncluttered. We would have stayed here longer but the park was full for the Canadian Civic 3 day weekend. - lyzzards

We always tend to stop by for a weekend in October as they have the best haunted house for young kids (6-12 yrs). This is a KOA and the level of service is right up there. Facilities are clean, staff are helpful (they helped dump at the dumping station), pizza place on site (weekends only in Oct), etc. My kids liked the bouncy field (air inflated field which acts like a trampoline) very much. - Gus_976

Beautiful park, decent lots (gravel pad, fair amount of space between sites For a koa), tons of things for kids to do - splash pad, pool, park, jumping pillows [big & small] toddler park, lrg water slide ($5, specific dates and times), on site chip wagon and pizza (specific dates and times), baseball field, swings, Kamp k9, rental bikes, mini putt ($). Bathrooms were super clean, and free showers really make this ideal (note: there is no sewer hookup available at this campground). What makes this campground lose some points is the male owner, who does not seem to enjoy himself at all. He is very short-tempered, and not at all chatty, despite us trying to make the effort when we had to be in close proximity (ie. He runs the chip wagon and pizza stand). His wife is very friendly and is who greeted us upon arrival, and chatted with us when we requested a pump-out service (stay 5 days and you get 1 free pump out). When you arrive you will have some rules read to you. I tend to take this personally, but with some thought, it's an indication that they have had problems to deal with in the past. Park is super-busy on the weekends, so we were happy with our Sunday to Saturday stay. All in all, would recommend a visit. - Larinator

I didn't enjoy this park as much as I have others due to how close together the lots were. We could here our neighbors talking in conversational tones while they were inside their camper next door. Two dogs in lots directly across from each other started barking every time they were both outside at the same time because they were only about 6 feet apart when on their tie-outs. I also felt like I was in the middle of another neighbor's fireside chat because of the close proximity. Having said that, it is clean, well maintained and there are lots of activities for the kids including pool/splashpad, jumping pillow, very cool play structure, waterslide, craft corner, life-size chess board and pedal car rentals. The owners are friendly enough, but expect rules to be followed explicitly. Not a bad thing, but it can be a bit tense. I wouldn't refuse to go back, but will not look to camp there again if other options are available. - JJ Spectre

Pleasant family-run campground, largely occupied by seasonals. Very quiet despite being relatively close to a very large highway. Didn't use the laundry, but it seems fine. Site was level grass pull through.
We would stay here again, particularly with the Good Sam discount. - wandrr
Aug 2014 - $36.00
Rate shown is Good Sam discount. Our site was a nearly level grass pull-through and included a table. Most sites were occupied by seasonals. All hookups worked fine. No cable TV, but found around 15 channels off the antenna. Wi-Fi cost $2 and internet access was satisfactory. We would stay here again. - Onemoretrail

Nice clean park, well located. We enjoyed our stay in Brockville, took a 2 hour boat tour of the 1,000 islands and was well worth the time. Only 30 amp which was no problem as it was cool, the Wi-Fi is $2 a day. The lady who owns the park is a sweet heart, would stay here again. A little expensive for what they offer. - sjones

This is a State owned park. Very clean, on the shores of the St. Lawrence Seaway. Firewood available, they bring to spot. A variety of lot sizes, 4 dumping stations, power for big Rvs, tent sites. Grass is maintained, no dirt sites. Paved roads. We have been coming here a few times a year. No stores close by, pick up essentials in Ogdensburg or Massena. - The Allens

Our family camps here every summer. We love it.
Right on the St. Lawerence Seaway . It is gorgeous! Canada is right across the River. We enjoy fishing and swimming.
Most sites are grass with some trees on almost every site. We love section A which is electricity at every site 30 amp . Water spickets through out area to fill holding tanks before parking. Dumping station available before leaving. This section is pet friendly.
Picnic table and fire places at every site.
We have no problem parking our 36 foot fifth wheel. - Lor-perh

The camp administrators are very personable and happy to give advice on where to eat, local activities, etc. Although there were other families with children, the majority of people at this site seemed to be pre-senior/senior, many with seasonal set ups. We stayed for three nights, and two of those nights the gate was closed to traffic by 9pm. No bigs, I just let the chain out and drove in, but it would have been nice to know if there was a curfew. There were no children's play areas on site, but there is a nice park about a 5 minute walk down the road. The park is lovely with pleasure craft and yachts sailing right past the door to our tent, much to the delight of my children (aged 6 & 3). There were no pools or splash pads evident in the immediate area, but for the price, I wasn't expecting anything spectacular. The only big shock/surprise was the fact that multiple trains go by the campsite each night, tooting their whistles! This isn't necessarily a bad thing, but we certainly were not expecting it! We would stay again. - HendersonClan

Great overnight park or short stay, mostly back in spots. No sewer, do have a dump station and fresh water fill up area. Located on the Rideau River. Beautiful village all services in walking distance. Parks Canada Lock Station next door. Free firewood, trailers are close together. Great value for the price and the Lions Club its a great organization. - The Allens
Sep 2016 - $21.00
Nice park that only the Federal Govt could provide. Senior's get 1/3 off all year in the older Cedars section of this park and that comes with two free tickets to nearby Upper Canada Village. These discounted sites are either unserviced or with 15 amp electric but come with a beautiful view of the Seaway and shipping traffic. There are full service sites available in the newer part of the park. Dump station, potable water and toilet/shower house nearby. - Smasma

Very large grassy sites with shade trees scattered throughout park.
There was enough room on our site (and most sites) to just drive in and swing around into place, rather than trying to back in. - DCM/JMB
Aug 2016 - $71.00
We made reservations when we were only 60 miles away. The person we talked to was very friendly and assured us of a pull through.
At check in the staff was very efficient. They will carry a tab for purchases in the store. After registration we were escorted to our site. The pull through site was spacious, we have slides on both side. We had full hook ups, including good 50 amp electrical service.
Over all, the park looked well kept. There seem to be a lot of activities for children. The train someone else mentioned, is distant and not a problem.
Like most KOA parks they are over priced, even for this area. - Frank Barker

Very well run campground. Office staff are excellent. Grounds are well maintained. Jumping pillow is new installation since our stay last year. Weather didn't co-operate with us again this stay, so we can't comment on the pool. The big pull-throughs provide ample space and new picnic tables. Overall is fairly quiet despite the train off in the distance, not loud enough to be disturbing. Look forward to staying again. - diehard
Sep 2013 - $38.00
Rate reflects this weekend's 2 for 1 VKR special. Great campground. Grounds well kept, nice pool, sauna and hot tub. Close proximity to 401, but no road noise. Occasional train in the distance. Freshmart grocery store within walking distance. Dog really enjoyed the fenced in dog park. Never been a real fan of KOA parks, but this is the 2nd we've stayed at this summer and they're growing on me. A lot of activities for all ages. Will stay again. - diehard
