We used this location as a base to explore the Adirondack Mountains, the Lake Placid, Tupper Lake, and Fort Ticonderoga area. The hosts were nice, and very accommodating. Our first site, A1, was too close to some trees so we couldn't get a signal with out satellite dish which is on the front third of the roof. We were allowed to move to site 49B and satellite reception was excellent.
We had 50 amp, and great water pressure, but there is no sewer at individual sites. There is a dump station acr0ss from the city water treatment facility on the entrance/exit road. I believe there was a pump-out vendor available for a fee. We didn't use it.
It appeared the majority of the park was seasonal sites, which were kept well for the most part. We didn't spend much time in the park, as we were out seeing the area. This is not a 5 star resort, but it served our purpose. - therealSimpsons

Incredible scenery with the fort across the road and the lighthouse and pier. The grassy sight look great but turn to mud when it rains causing my truck to get stuck [luckily it stopped raining and I got it out the next day] and the rangers said they will not help me get out, I needed to call a tow truck if I couldn't get out. The showers were disgustingly dirty with bugs under the mats. I would go for the day use area but won't camp there again. - Tim 1 - camper_

Rate reflects required 'reservation fee'. Good home base to visit Fort Crown Point and Fort Ticonderoga ( 20 min. drive ). No easy fuel or grocery so plan ahead. Sites are grass and of many varied sizes with most being somewhat shaded from solar and satellite. I saw a few big rigs come in so must be sites somewhere in the park that work. No 'organized' site access meaning pretty much just pull into grass sites and make it work with lots of 'leveling' needed. Very popular with locals on weekends. - SailorGolf

The park was easy to access considering the back roads of Vermont. It is right on Lake Champlain with the entrance road running between the lake and the park. Most of the sites are seasonal with a smaller number reserved for "overnighters". Utilities were easy to access. Do not recall that they had wifi--Verizon worked nominally, if I recall correctly. My site was very short with a hill right behind which left my front end almost in the road--and I am only 24 ft. It was also very unlevel. However, all that is worth putting up with being so close to the lake and just down the road from the Lake Champlain bridge. The park itself is pleasant and tidy. Although I was not thrilled with my site, the lake is beautiful, the visit was pleasant and I would definitely return. - nanzhere

We have been camping here for 3-4 years and have to say, the owners take pride in keeping their campground meticulously kept. Bathrooms are clean and the owners are seen mowing lawns and improving the campground constantly. The pool is the cleanest we've ever used. But they enforce no splashing/diving and other rules strictly for the enjoyment and protection of all their campers. We've never had a problem. One issue that is more problematic (I could be wrong) is the lower level where one would pitch a tent (which is where we camp) due to the swampy area behind seems to have a lot of mosquitoes. One site is very hilly and not recommended but the others are well manicured and kept. The seasonal campers are very friendly and their prices are reasonable. - dneilson2

A nice view from our site, which was A2 if I remember correctly. We could look out over Lake Champlain, but also had the propane tank and a scummy pond as part of our view. On check in the owner (wife) told us this was the most level site for us and that is why she put us here. She told us to stay on the "sewer" site and that would be best to get level. After about an hour of backing in and out, her husband came out and assisted us. We have been RVing for many years, and backing into a sight is not a problem. We just never could get level on this site. When we were somewhat level, we gave up. We had two beautiful shade trees, but the problem was that we could not position the RV to allow room for the awning to be put out. We decided to just deal with this and stay the two nights we had planned. However, after about an hour and our power coming on for about 15-30 seconds and then going out, we were miserable. I went to the office to ask what to do and was directed to the husband. He told me it was because we were running ac/refrigerator/hot water heater on 30amp. For the past three weeks we had stayed on 30amp sites, so we knew this was not the problem. He also told us the people before us had no problem. He had us turn off the hot water heater, but the problem continued. After he checked everything out, he realized they were not getting the full 30amp from the power company and there was nothing to do. The entire park was on low voltage. He did apologize and refunded us the money for both nights, although his wife thought we should be able to deal with this. It was in the high 90's and our pets were beginning to show signs of heat exhaustion and we were so hot we could not stay. So at 5 pm we had to pack up, hook the car up and look for another place to stay. We were very disappointed and didn't like that at first we were treated like we didn't know what we were doing. Also, the wife told us she didn't know of any other campgrounds anywhere nearby. Luckily we knew of one less than 30 minutes away and they were able to accommodate us. If they could fix the voltage problem, this may be an OK place, but we didn't even get to walk around the park and we were right beside the office, so we cannot say anything about the park. It did appear there were mostly seasonal sites and they were very close together with all kinds of stuff around and under the trailers there. Close to the NY-VT bridge over Lake Champlain, but I would not recommend this park to anyone. - SkipperLee

We stayed 6 nights and paid $38/night. No tax. If you pay for 6 nights, you get the 7th free but unfortunately we couldn't stay the full 7 nights. Reservation process was easy and check-in efficient. We were led to our site, which was level and spacious. We recommend to unhook your toad by the office. All hookups worked perfectly. WiFi was better than most campgrounds. Verizon cell and Verizon data service worked well. We had a clear sky for DirecTV signal. We found this campground to be a slice of heaven. The owners are lovely. There are many seasonals. By "seasonal", I'm referring to folks who live within a few hours and keep a camper here for use as a summer home. All campers are clean and well-kept, including pretty flowers and landscaping. Everyone is super friendly and helpful. There is a large grassy area for volleyball, badminton, etc (equipment is free to use). We enjoyed the beautiful grounds and our partial view of Lake Champlain. Barber Homestead was exactly what we needed at exactly the right time. We're so glad to have discovered it and would love to return one day (and next time we'll stay much longer!). Highly recommend. - GottaGoNow

We stayed here for a week while seeing the area. Very nice owners. Right on Lake Champlain. Site was nice-long and level, spacious, good. Everything neat and orderly, well maintained. Laundry convenient. Not a lot to do in the area and no stores nearby. Wifi and cell signal weak. Quiet place to relax-no tv. Went to Ft. Ticonderoga and saw a reenactment and took the ferry to Burlington to the Shelburne Museum-interesting. - slj

We were in a 40 ft motorhome. One tight turn that the owner explained how to best navigate, otherwise easy to drive. Very clean, helpful owners. Site was fairly level and noticed the sites were leveled with a grader as people left the park. It's about one half hour drive to Ticonderoga and the ferry. Pretty views on Lake Champlain. Quiet area, no cable but good satellite reception. Verizon hot spot worked well. Would stay here again. - Jim and Susan

We stayed on a weekday so the park was mostly empty. Great water and mountain views. Good canoeing. Our site had no hookups. We did not use the public toilets, so I have no comment. Fresh water and dump station access was good. Access roads within the park were good. Every site was level. There no TV reception using a standard amplified antenna. - R V Camper

Rate reflects required reservation fee which makes it a bit 'high' for no hook-ups. Add $2 for site with 'lake view' and No senior discounts. Activities and sites etc. remain as previous reviews. Most all sites in the big loop are in an open area good for solar and satellite, and would accommodate most any size rig despite the on-line suggestions. Fuel and grocery services are a bit away. Pool is only 3 feet deep, left over from the Girl Scout Park days. I liked this park as evidently do many 'locals' on the weekends, and would stay again for several days to make the daily average fee more reasonable. - SailorGolf

Beautiful location but not good if you want any hookups. Very few trees so in 95 degree summer weather our MH got too hot. Very little shade. The view from our site was worth staying for a few days but we were traveling with dogs and the MH just got too hot. There is limited generator use and for us it wasn't enough. Try and get site T52, unbelievable view. - The Sandbox

This park is amazing! Right on the river and is beautiful. Level sites, clean bathrooms and great fishing. Would stay here again! - Leopita

If you're and nature lover and looking for piece of God's country this is it! The river is beautiful, we watched osprey and eagles, herons and ducks, fly fishing, tubing, kayaking all right from our campsite.
Sites are right on the river, large, level, grassy and well maintained with water and electric. The grounds are beautifully landscaped.
The owners are welcoming, helpful and care that all campers are respectful of their neighbors and enjoy their peace and quiet.
Visitors are welcome, but if your looking to have a party this isn't that kind of place and that's what I loved about it, quiet and friendly.
Lots of places to visit and things to see, wonderful place to call home while you enjoy day trips. - cddebbie

A beautiful setting with a lot of potential to be an outstanding campground. The road into and around the campground has numerous potholes and needs maintenance as did the restrooms, showers and laundry. The washers were both broken. The bathrooms and showers were concrete floors with standing water and pretty rough looking. A complete makeover is needed. The campground itself was pretty and peaceful and right on the river. Grass campsites were level. The lady running the place was friendly and helpful. The dump station is hidden in the trees by the flag pole. No sign and easy to miss even when you've been told where it is. A fee to use Wi-Fi so we didn't. We would stay here again, but use our own toilet and shower. - User2793

Nice park nestled in amongst huge Hemlock trees. We were the only campers for two of our three nights. Staff were friendly. Access to the park and the site was ok. However, we really are a big-rig and the trees need trimming. We mentioned this to staff as we were leaving but not sure they took the request to heart.
This was our first experience with Yogi. It is definitely geared for campers with small children. If that is you this place would be great as they have plenty of activities for children...in season.
For us, I would not want to be here in peak season. - Moe and Flo are on the go

Easy access and big rig friendly with level sites. Advertised free cable and wifi. There was five cable channels and you had to sign into wifi every hour. Wifi was slow and unreliable. The park was good for walking dog but had no dog park. Water pressure could have been stronger. The showers were good. The swimming pool was good and heated. Washers and dryers worked good. Staff was excellent. - Fulltimersrv

Overall our stay was good. We asked to change sites and they were very accommodating. The one big problem I have is their firewood policy, which is no outside firewood, even right outside their gate. Then they charge $8 for small bundle of wood, good for about a 90-minute fire. - cptjoe

Nice park. Lots of flying bugs which is no fault of the cg. Our site was very level and under heavy shade. The owners were very nice and helpful. We rented a canoe from them and went to Lake Champlain. The canoe was in excellent shape. They had all of the necessary equipment to include pads for us to load the canoe on top of our vehicle. The road we were located on was easy to navigate but some of the other sites were up steep, rocky hills. These seemed to be more permanent folks however. - FT Travelers3

Owner showed us to our site, which was level. Roads were a little bumpy going in & out of site. Clean restrooms and showers. Lots offer some shade. Site surface was gravel, grass and featured a fire ring and picnic table. - trapdye

We stayed here for 3 nights in our 40' Fifth Wheel. We were delayed by a day from our original reservation due to diesel engine issues but owner graciously accommodated our date change. Owner guided us to our site which was level. We had great Verizon cell signal so opted to use our own device as a hotspot. - FunTimes123

State park. Gravel roads, gravel/grass sites. Some are larger than others and some will NOT accommodate larger campers.
Restrooms were rustic, but clean. Showers were clean. Would be nice to have more shower houses, though.
Swimming area was nice. Lake was absolutely gorgeous.
Some of the roads in the campground and the roads leading to it are very hilly, so be prepared for that.
No electric and no water available.
All around a nice campground. - grim509

We reserved our site months in advance as we wanted to be on the water. We had a level site right across from the beach. This campground is primitive with no electric, water, or sewer. There are water spigots to fill up your tanks and a dump station for your departure. A couple of times of day a wood seller and a mini school bus drive around selling ice, worms, etc... Our relatives rented one of the mooring buoys and we had the best of both worlds. We have stayed here numerous times and definitely will be back. - Sockiegirl

Our 2nd trip to this primative campground. Some of the sites are full of roots so it gets to be a pain. However, the campground is a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle. Great priced and close to the town of Ticonderoga for whatever you need. The fishing was great as was the lake. If you are a hiker, bring your boots to go to the top of the rock for breathtaking views. It is a moderate hike. The supply trucks go around several times a day and you may want to invest in a small generator to keep your battery charged. Some of the fire rings on the sites further from the lake need to be upgraded but they still work. Great place to unwind. - Jellystar

This RV campground is primarily filled with seasonal campers. All river sites are held by seasonal renters so don't expect to get a one. We got site 62 which was a pull through if you want to call it that. Site was narrow, unlevel dirt and right on the road. We looked across the road to find all seasonal campers, some of them very tired indeed. The owner, I get a feeling, exaggerates a little.
Access to the river is primarily through the nature trail that leads to "the beach", which is the shore line of the river that is littered with submerged trees, mud, stones, and muck. Not the best place to spend the day on the water, we chose to drive to Paradox lake and pay the day use fee at the state park.
There were plenty of kids here for our 8 year old to play with. The campground has putt putt golf. They claim to have an arcade but it is just a few coin op games that are stuffed into a portable shed. The store has a good assortment of candy for the kids, they have ice cream as well but it is all store bought items placed into a chest freezer. Prices are reasonable but we drove 10 minutes each night for real ice cream.
Lots of activities for the kids over the July 4th.
The pine needles- they are everywhere, and you track them into your trailer because no sites have gravel. The sewer connection was something I had never seen in an RV park. The pipe was at ground level so dirt and debris could get washed in. When we pulled up the pipe was covered with a rusty coffee can and a broken up cinderblock was nearby. The first time I emptied the grey tank back pressure forced my elbow out of the pipe and soapy water went everywhere. I talked to the seasonal folks about this and they said it was normal, empty your tank slowly because the system can't take a big rush a water. On the last day I emptied the black tank and had the same problem, sewer system at the campground drained slowly so I didn't get a good flush of the tank. - Camping with Punks

The park needs to be updated. Sewage is from 1965, Electric is 30amp. Laundry was very poor and dirty, and the language used by the staff was foul. - Luke4444

This campground is not big rig friendly. My class A is only 32ft and I could barely get between the trees along the roads. The roads are dirt with lots of tree roots and very narrow with overhanging limbs. My site was fairly level but most sites were not level. Once I got into my site it was very pleasant. I did worry about getting back out. The cable, electric and water were good. The sewer not so much. Their sewer consisted of a 55gal drum buried in the ground. So, consequently if you dumped a lot too fast it ran all over the ground. And there was evidence that it happened. I was there for only 3 days and I have large enough tanks that I did not dump. This is a very hard campground to rate. The staff are super friendly. The office was very old and the store had very little in it. There is a walkie talkie hanging at the door for when they are closed you can talk to someone. They direct you to your sight with a golf cart and help you get settled. The entire campground was under a huge canopy of tall trees so it was very comfortable on hot days. They came back later to check and make sure everything was ok. And checked on me the next day. It was quiet. You could hear kids in the background at the other end of the campground playing. There is a nice playground for the kids The campground is along a river for swimming, tubing or just watching nature. It is very close to the town of Schroon Lake for shopping and groceries. The town has it's own beach on the lake. At night the campground was very quiet. There are lots of seasonals. Some beautiful and some not so much. If you have a tent or a popup or a small trailer or even a VERY small(under 24ft) motorhome or conversion van this is a great campground. I did enjoy my stay there. Would I go back? Probably not, just because of the size of my motorhome. - camper19709
