Spent one night as we were passing through the area. Easy reservations, gruff check in by older man and woman. But they might be at the end of a busy summer season, so we cut them some slack. Horses on the other side of the fence were pleasant to watch. Quiet at night, just what we needed. We camped at Shady Oaks RV Park in a Motorhome.

Rough bath house but clean and had soap & towels. Annoyed by the $0.25 for 7-minute shower, but tremendous water pressure. We camped at Shady Oaks RV Park in a Motorhome.

Clean but roughly built bath-house. Soap & paper towels provided, but a $.25 cost for a 7-minute shower with tremendously good water pressure. We camped at Shady Oaks RV Park in a Motorhome.

Park is close to freeway, but no road or R/R noise. Roads are gravel and dirt, sites are a big grass parking lot with some shade at the front of the campground. Permanents in the treed area in back. Power, water, and cell (AT&T) were good. We would stay here again. We camped at Shady Oaks RV Park in a Motorhome.

I gave it a "7" for convenience to the area. Also, it's an easy off, easy on to I-87. They were not pleasant in the office. Almost as though we were a bother. There was no shade and we were in a grassy area. You should visit the Ausable Chasm. Very interesting. We camped at Shady Oaks RV Park in a Motorhome.

Easy access off of I-87. Older park in very good condition. Not sure if 50 amp service is available in the park. We only had 30 amp at our site. Very nice people running the park. We arrived the day before hurricane Irene arrived. The people gave us a site that was sheltered by a nice, tall hedge. Rode out the storm in comfort. Clean laundry facilities. Wi-Fi worked well at our site. Would stay here again. We camped at Shady Oaks RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

My wife and I stay there whenever we go to Plattsburgh,NY. We travel from Canada, travel to Lake George for a day then take the ferry to Vermont for the day. The Owner of the campground called us very upset about the previous comment posted, know that we had stayed there the same time that the Motor Home stayed at the 50AMP site, knowing we had been privileged to the incident that had occurred. We were walking as we always do and saw their very large dog lunge at referred to as "Mrs.Owner" which nearly caused her to fall. The owner of the dog immediately restrained him. We being very concerned went to the office to make sure she was OK. She told us she asked them to restrain the dog to their campsite and not walk him anywhere in the campground. Maybe this was the cause for the bad review. As for the sewer smell we certainly did not smell anything fowl while we walked the campground every evening. And the old machinery that was mention is what I believe is a 1940 something Cub Tractor that received a trophy at the Antique Classic Car Show at the Fairground. The trophy can be seen in the office that I asked about a couple years ago. With only the 2 of them maintain the campground I don't thing they can force seasonal campers to clean up their sites let along do it themselves. We have noticed that "Mr.Owner" does seem to have a breathing problem of some sort. As for selling the campground, I don't know about that,.. but then every business is for sale at a price, that's an investment. It is a beautiful piece of property. As for rudeness goes, we have never seen them be rude to anyone. We wouldn't stay anywhere else. You can be sure we will be keeping an eye on this camping website. We camped at Shady Oaks RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

I wish there was an ability to post photos with reviews. We were here for two weeks, mostly to our own circumstance. When we pulled into the campground and turned off the coach as I went to check in the coach refused to start again! Beginning of a nightmare as we ended up being towed to a repair facility where we stayed for two nights (while paying $45. night at Shady Oaks) and as the locals mentioned to us, the campground is appropriately named. The day after the coach was repaired and we returned to the campground our sewer backed up, SERIOUSLY backed up, so the owners solution was to provide us with a 6" diameter piece of corrugated "hose" to run under our coach and TWO sites down for our entire stay. Needless to say, there was no outside activity for us with a sewer hose (a leaking hose at that, which was partially repaired with duct tape!!) running through our site. We ended up having to leave our coach to return to MA for medical reasons and the owners consented to allow us to leave it there unplugged, disconnected for 1/2 price, $22.50 a night to park!!! As previous posts mentioned the owners have issues with customer service and are clearly just not cut out for the business they are. The campground is in disrepair throughout and Mrs. owner works 12 to 15 hour days trying to keep up with it all. There is old rusted machinery throughout as well as "seasonals" with dilapidated outbuildings that someone has spray painted with the comment "paint or dismantle". While we were there the owner (Mr.) was discussing accepting an offer with someone making an offer on the property, so clearly he just wants to be done with it and it certainly shows. A truck stop would be better, a Wal-Mart would be better. Never again would we stay here, mostly because of the customer service/p.r. issues and the owners just don't care - it is obvious throughout the campground. With all that said, this is a lovely piece of land and I'm certain at one point it was a great campground, but the owners clearly just can't "do it" anymore. It has easy, very easy, on off access to interstate 87 with minimal highway noise. We camped at Shady Oaks RV Park in a Motorhome.

My wife and I are camping for the season on a very large private site. It has been a very rainy every since May 1. Rain, rain and more rain every day,.. very few sunny days. This is of no fault of the campground itself. But I have to say we were not flooding out like our friend was who camps at the other local campground in the area. It is a very quite place and the 2 owners have been nice to deal with. I do need to comment on the previous review written however. Yes, there is some tall grass out in the back part of the campground but we were told that those sites are not available for camping due to the settlement of run-off rain water. We, as other seasonal campers, are camped in another location of the campground. The 2 owners are the only ones that maintain the campground, and we can see that with all the rain it can stress them out trying to keep with the outdoor chores in between raindrops. We like the fact that there is Free Wi-Fi and we use our satellite dish but we did sign up for cable TV also. As far as the pool goes there has been so much rain in June that sometimes the pool had to been chemically shocked to bring it back up to swimming conditions, closing the pool for at least an hour before it can be re-opened; anyone who has a pool knows this. Our friend that visits plans to become a seasonal camper next season and camp next to us. We camped at Shady Oaks RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for 2 nights at the end of June 2009. It was not worth it and I would not reccomend this park to anyone. It was not maintained well, long grass and old, deserted trailers here and there. The childrens park was a dissapointment although the website appears to be kid friendly. The grass was too long, the swings were old, rusted and uneven. The pool was closed for some strange reason, when we asked about it they said someone put too much chlorine in the pool so they don't seem to really know what they are doing. We were quite literally the only ones here. I did not see a beach within walking distance. Initially the owner was rude and short with us. Very impatient and thought our reservation was for the next day. They did not leave us with a good impression and we even discussed leaving a day early. We did stay the 2 full nights afterall and my husband & I agree the only reason why we had a nice stay was because our trailer is awesome. There were nicer, more poplulated resorts in the area that we saw driving in town - would suggest checking out them first. We camped at Shady Oaks RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Our first impression of this campground was that it could use a little TLC. A coat of paint here and there would do wonders for this place. The abandoned motorhome next to the entrance gate should be moved elsewhere. It seems the owners just don't care. The campground is very close to the Interstate with the resulting traffic noise. We will be passing by this one next time. We camped at Shady Oaks RV Park in a Motorhome.

The campground is very clean and quiet. Host was pleasant and curious. Had some sunny and shady sites available. Well kept and neat. The beach was within walking distance. The pool was very clean. Nice weather. That's what so great about NY state. Had no problems. Would recommend to friends and family. We camped at Shady Oaks RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Rating of 1 is too high. We attempted to stay here as Passport America guests and were so rudely treated by the owner at the check-in office that we were forced to leave. The "gentleman" expressed the view that Passport America guests were nothing but trouble and didn't want to have anything to do with them. He resented our presence, treated us badly and we left without checking in. I hope no other travellers experience this terrible attitude and customer treatment. I would never go there or recommend this campground to anyone. We camped at Shady Oaks RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Have finally taken a break from the fishing tournaments to post this review. Camping there is great. I go there every summer because it is a quiet place and the host treat me like gold. I usually fish the tournaments on the lake but have decided to bring my family there for our vacation every fall. It's beautiful. They have all the amenities one would need. The host strictly enforces quiet time which I like. I plan to bring others with me this year. We camped at Shady Oaks RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
