We had a river front site. It was very large and shady but quite uneven and sandy. The river is scenic but very busy with tubing and noisy. This site would be best as a destination for the river activities but also served us okay as an overnight stop. - SKT

This park sits along a curve of West Canada Creek. We stayed in an open field area on a busy weekend, there were more shaded sites, some water front, many of the shaded sites did not have sewer. Beautiful clean pool, staff very friendly and helpful. Road are gravel and easy to navigate. Great location to explore this part of the adirondacks. - sam and hope

The sites were very spacious and clean. Most of the park is covered in pine trees, the other part is open grassy areas. There is fishing in the creek, and fishing supplies at the store. They have a shuttle service to go tubing down the river, with tube rental available. We went in the bigining of the week and there was minimal campers. They do have seasonal campers which were equally nice sites. Firewood was available, and a ice cream shop on site that also did some hot food. Staff was friendly and accommodating when we couldn't arrive until after office hours. - Mocha22

This is one of the nicest KOAs we've stayed in. Very pretty park alongside a river. The Herkimer Diamond Mine/Museum is across the street which is interesting and you can mine for Herkimers (actually quartz) if you like to bust rocks with a small sledge hammer. Wi-Fi was smokin', and the staff was very friendly. It's a very pleasant place to visit. Highly recommended. - Jayco1

If there were a 20 on the scale this park would get it. We only intended to stay one night but stayed two because it was so nice. Extremely friendly staff, beautiful surroundings, and lots of amenities. Great place for families. No doubt would return again. - pkd31780

This campground in far from KOA quality. Campground needs much TLC. In many areas, lawn/weed and campsites need maintenance. Many campsites were close together. Some pull-thru sites are available. Our campsite was all mud, unlike many of the other sites which were rock. During a minor rain storm, we had mud flowing through our site down to the river. We watched our doormat float away. DirecTV (free standing satellite) had no issue. Wi-Fi was weak and not reliable. Verizon phones were able to get a weak 4g signal. Electricity at the sites is spotty. There are 2 sites per power post and we lost power twice, which required a reset at the “main” breaker by the office. Campground provides breakfast delivery (prices kinda high) to your campsite. KOA convenience store was available, but pricey. Campground is 10 min. from major grocery store, food and gas stations. The campground is 20 min. from major highway. We utilized this location to take a cruise on the Erie Canal. Campground includes a kid’s playground, pool, laundry, bikes to rent and a Frisbee golf course. A large river flows through this campground, which people were using to float (tube) down and fish. - HappyCampers227

We had a pull though site for a one night stop. The site was level and everything functioned well. The campground is mostly suited to families with younger children. The pool and river were busy on a hot August day and many of the children were less than supervised which made for a noisy campground. Still, a solid overall KOA experience for our overnight stay. - SKT

Only stayed one night but we're very impressed by variety available. Lots of beautiful sites from big rig pull throughs to tent sites in own isolated area. Riverside and meadow. Huge variety of kamping kabins with solar powered, observatory, etc. Lots of activities. Float down the river, dig for diamonds, see a movie, pancake breakfast, kids crafts, swimming pool, even a community garden. Site was wide and level with easy in and out. Went to the gift shop, restaurant, and museum which are all part of the resort. Very clean. Delightful stay. - Hartleyfam

This KOA is the most friendliest place to stay. There is a ton of things for the kids and family to do. It is very clean and the staff is extremely friendly. From the time you check in until the time you leave, they are very eager to make sure your stay is pleasant. We have stayed here many times over the past 3 years, and have always been very happy and can't wait to return. This is a must try for the family: worth every minute. - bumpy

This campground is located at the southern edge of the Adirondack Mountains, surrounded by farmland. It is owned and operated by a very nice couple. It has mostly shaded sites with a few out in the open. The driveways are gravel and site pads are mostly grass. We had a large back in site with 30 amp electric full hookups. There is a bath house and laundry that were kept clean. They offer free WiFi but it is available only near the office. Since we were there over the 4th of July weekend, the campground was almost full with lots of families (and lots of barking dogs) but it was a generally positive and friendly experience. AT&T signal strength here was -93 dBm, good. We paid $32 per night. - Coopsecondact

Passport America-but only on weekdays. It is a narrow road leading up to the campground, but no problem. We came in a hour earlier than check in and the manager was very unhappy about this and made sure we knew it. The campground has several distinct areas for camping. Some areas are in the trees and the sites are very close together. The area we were in was more like an open field of grass. The sites around us were very large, definitely set up for the larger rigs. We were thankful to be in this area. There was plenty of room in the site for the truck, 5th wheel and jeep. There are gravel and dirt roads through the campground and they were not well maintained. Each site had a picnic table. Pool was cold and very small. We were able to get Verizon signal using a booster-nothing without the booster. Good DirecTV satellite signal because we were in the area outside the trees. Nothing great, but it is a fine place to stop and rest for a few days. - GLPColorado

Tough campground to rate. At times if felt cliquish. Most of the campers know each other and it felt to me that you really have to stay a couple or so months or perhaps seasons to fit in.
The lady at the office while very friendly seemed somewhat passive aggressive about many things. On one hand she wasn't sure we could stay past 2 wks using the PA rate as there was a chance we would be forced to move when the time came for other campers, but when the time came, almost no one would show up because of alleged cancellations, thus we were allowed to stay past 2wks at a PA rate. I wish she was a little more upfront with her rates policy as their website says nothing about how long one can stay using the PA rate. Even so, we were allowed to stay nearly a month at the PA rate. She mentioned in passing other campgrounds we could try when I went up to the office to pay for another week. Perhaps a passive aggressive way of hinting to us to move on. Even so she allowed us to pay late many times, without a word or care, which seemed odd, but it's their laid back kind of way.
The recreational center was free with a ton of toys. They have a nice lounge with all kinds of movies and books. Nice store. Wifi is good at the Rec room and ok in the first 5 or so spots by an open field.
They have over 3 miles of nature trails and almost no light pollution making wonderful star gazing. One can hear all kinds of animal sounds at night. It's a very quiet campground, even on the weekends. Not many kids but some of which are seasonal or rent by the month. Our kids enjoyed playing with 3 girls that rent by the month, and were not happy to leave them.
Overall the place is laid back, but felt a little cliquish to me. Like a unique community. I liked it, I didn't like it at times. It was weird and unique all at the same time. I would visit again, even if I'm not sure they would want me to visit again. But I think they would. - mynyel

We've been staying here for years. The sites are rather crowded. Many of the renters are snowbirds from the village or surrounding area and are yearly summer occupants. As described by others the sites are essentially parking spots opposite the marina. Its not a resort, but it works. Management is great to work with and the seasonals are friendly and keep their sites neat and clean. I note that its rated as not big rig friendly but I've been in there with a 44' 5th wheel. You just have to let management know so they can let you know if they have a space that will accommodate a big rig. - Juandering

This park is a parking lot on the Mohawk River, although what little grounds they have were very well cared for. It is owned by the Town of Ilion. There is a small marina there also and boat slips were $15 a night. Most of the sites are seasonal but they keep a few for transients. There is a cafe on the premises. There is 50 amp service, water, sewer, cable TV and WiFi. It is within walking distance of town so you can pick up supplies. Some very nice boats that were traveling through the canal system, overnighted at the marina and that was interesting. It is easy to get to from the NY Thru-way. There are train tracks near by and we did hear them often. For what it is, it is very nice. A nice stop over or bring a boat and go fishing on the river for a weekend. - pillaz

This is basically just a paved parking lot, with sites all in a row side by side, angled to the curb, much like erasing every other line from a typical parking lot. In a 36' motor home, with rear wheels against the curb at rear of site, the front end is marginally in the one street passing in front. In 42 months of full-timing, this is the first park that we have ever had problems with low voltage causing cut-outs. Been here four nights and have not had any arrivals or departures while here. Of 16 sites, three are vacant, most others appear to be seasonals, though lots are not junky. Rental requires signing a four-page agreement, much like renting an apartment. - RVTravelers222_Ed_G

Our site was level with plenty of room. Campground has lots of trees. The interior roads are dirt with gravel. Electrical power, water and sewer are good. The staff was very friendly. - jim65

There are many seasonal RVs, that appear to be in their campsite year around. The interior roads are basically dirt with a little gravel. They are very rough (ruts) in many areas. Roads are narrow and make it difficult driving to your site. The camp sites are dirt with a very little grass, the area has many trees. The water pressure is on the low side while the electrical power is good. Verizon cell service is low in the area and conversations break up. The Internet service is okay but available just near the office. There is a new heated swimming pool and it is very nice. We camped here three nights. It appears to be over priced for the quality of the campground. The staff was very friendly. - flrop

We camp with a 33’ft fifth wheel at full-hookup sites with Electric, water and sewer. We try to provide quick, objective reviews of campgrounds. Spent two days here in September 2011. Level, average-sized campsite. Friendly staff. On Kayuta Lake with boat launch, dock for seasonal boats, and a nice swimming beach. Kayak rental. Mostly shaded lots. Seasonal campsites were well kept. Small trash receptacles all around the campground, which were emptied regularly. Bathroom facilities were nice. Nice road to walk dog near the “rally field” and pavilion. Lots of recreational facilities. Roads were narrow; difficult to maneuver RV. If you have a spare day, visit the Pixley Falls State park. We recommend this campground. - FifthWheel Travelers

Very nice CG. This was our second trip at the same site. Many beautiful sites on the water, where we were able to have a relaxing morning coffee while sitting next to the water and watch kayaks and fisherman.....very relaxing. All sites that we saw were very shaded. Our site was huge and could have parked 4 30ft RVs in our site. The driveway was narrow with lots of trees but had no issue driving to and from our site. Site was fairly level and all packed sand, we've had no issues and CG also has a great beach within walking distance. We will go back again and again!!! - Garand1

We had a huge (literally could fit 3 campers in our site) site right on the edge of the lake, where we lounged next to the water with breakfast & coffee in the morning. We're going back next year. We really enjoyed our stay there. - Garand1

This campground is a wonderful place for a family to enjoy the great outdoors and offers recreation for the family and a day-use area. The sites are fairly clean other than the fire pits not being emptied for the next campers. Neighboring campers are friendly and helpful and the campground is well maintained. I would recommend this campground for both extended and day-use. The only recommendation is for electric sites to be available. - User2698

A real gem at the edge of Adirondack Park! The facility is a wide open space with shade trees around the perimeter. The park road is gravel and plenty wide. Sites are grass with pedestal conveniently located in the rear. Most sites are level, requiring no more that a 2" board or block to level. A few sites at the lower end are soft after heavy rain. Full hookups are available with 30 & 50 amp plugs. There are also sites with no hookups or electric only for boondocking or tents. Satellite access is easy and AT&T service is good.
The park has a recreation room available that is used for square dancing on the weekends. There is a plumbed restroom and a shower facility.
There is no web site for this park. The managers quickly responded to phone messages and were very accommodating during our stay.
Basic campground but a great bargain, convenient location and wonderful hosts. - Rod n Mary

Park has new owners and they are trying hard to update the park and doing a good job so far. We stayed in a 40ft motorhome and had a back in site. Site was level enough to get level but it is a new site so had some mud that will be taken care of soon. Real nice lake for swimming and boating and fishing. Play ground for kids and lots of tent sites. The only bad thing was that we stayed under Passport America and the didn't follow the rules. They only take $10.00 off the night rate of $42.00 instead of the 50 percent. So if you are going to use PA you might ask when you reserve a site as PA was going to call them and straighten it out. Hope they do. - fuzzie1

Nice little campground. Tight getting a big rig in but had a nice site. 30 amp, water. AT&T worked fine, no Sat TV because of trees. Only drawback was road noise . We were parked right at the road ( SR 8). Friendly management. We would stop here again. Price reflects PPA rate. - walt66

We were supposed to receive a Passport America rate. My wife got out a $20 bill so we were charged $20 instead of the $15 PA rate. Plus she charged $3 additional for the use of an A/C. Only noticed after the fact what with being tired coming off the road. easy Marks, I suppose. Our campsite was six feet off the berm of a busy highway, a fact initially concealed by a row of bushes which the road noise had no trouble penetrating. Bathrooms were old and had not been cleaned recently. A sign in each bathroom proclaimed: “Hot water turned off from 11:30 AM to 7:30 PM”. We camped here in a travel trailer and would not do so again under any circumstance. - geysergazer
