16 Parks near Rosendale, New York
Aug 2013 - $35.00
Mostly tent sites; about 5 RV sites. Sort of level. Very small but only game in town. No WiFi, no TV. Bathhouse reasonably clean. TP so thin it tears very easily. We were there for a wedding, otherwise we would have left. Oh yeah, no receipt for payment, either. All very casual. Owner makes rounds in his car -- too fat to walk -- takes about 10 minutes. - MovableBookLady

We have experienced NY state parks that are well set up and well run. This is not one of them. The sites are strewn all over a hill side with cross roads that are steep and barely wide enough for a vehicle. Each site is identified with a number, but there is no indication at each "road" what sites are along that "road." Once the office closes around 6:00 pm, according to the signs posted, there is no one on site overnight. Of course, there are no hookups whatsoever. The place was OK for two mid-week overnights of dry-camping while exploring the area, but there's not much to recommend the place. The trash barrel at my site was packed full for two nights. The $5 surcharge for non-residents plus the $2.50 "transaction fee" (for showing up?) is the frosting on a lousy cake. I don't think I'd stay there again. - Jay Rutherford

The campground is only five miles north of Hyde Park, where the FDR and Vanderbilt National Historic Site is located on beautiful route 9. So we stayed two nights without hookups near the Hudson River. The sites are not level but you can find some that will take RVs under 30 feet. There are bathrooms with showers but we arrived on Memorial Day and they were dirty and stayed that way for our two day stay. The host site was not filled and I think maybe the hosts are responsible for the cleaning? Nice hiking trails high up along the Hudson River going to the Marina and north of the park. Cottages are available for rent. This is a big complex of over 1,000 acres. In the park there are picnic areas, trails, bridle paths, fishing, two 9 hole golf courses, cross country skiing, sledding hills, snowmobiling and the Mills Mansion. - gsnakehill

Spent the week and explored the area. There was more to do than we could do in a week, so we will be back soon. This was a great campground to vacation at. It was a pleasant relief from the heat of Florida and the grand kids love the fishing and pool. I still can't beat them at Mini Golf, but it was FREE. Also Sunday Breakfast and the Saturday Night Move were FREE. Plenty to do in camp and plenty of nice restaurants in the area to choose from. The area was very organic in nature and filled with lots of artists. An interesting place to visit! - Phyllis l

This is a very nice place to spend a week or two, they have a special discount rate of $225.00 for a week stay that is less expensive than any other place we looked at in the region. They had a large selection of sites to choose from and things to do like mini golf and a great pool. It was located near the mountain trails we like to hike and bike. Can not say enough about the owner who did his most to make our stay as comfortable as possible. We highly recommend this campground! - Dealing Dennis

Arrived in afternoon, owner took us around to see what site our 40' coach would fit in. He himself was so helpful that we will be back. it is nice when you ask for something, the help don't say let me check for you.
Very good service. The site was very quiet. Some sites may be a issue. Big rig friendly. The roads can use a little tree trimming. - xflyhighx

First, the staff are top notch; very friendly and very accommodating.
We were assigned to a wooded area but had difficulty maneuvering our rig. So we asked to be moved to the field.
We were here on Labor Day weekend so we did expect it to be crowded.
Still it was very quiet And the quiet time was quiet!
We would return this campground. - leen

This "resort" would best be described as a traditional trailer park. Many "seasonals" are present. We spoke to one very nice lady who has lived there for 12 years. Our campsite was level and FHU under the spreading pine trees. Our site was way in the back, so it was either drive to the front or hike. The on-site cafe was very nice. Food was good. - moderate camper

Nice Park for family's with kids. Was just my wife and I. We stopped in for two nights. At check-in they gave wristbands to put on, told us if we lost them it would be a $20. charge. If we got caught without them on they could throw us out. Not having fun yet. Dinner plans with some local friends. Not putting it on. Maybe a clip on badge would work better. The site was muddy with a street drain in the middle of it but level.
Great place for large family's. Not for couples. - Road Manager

Sad to say that after camping in our RV for many years at Jellystone in Gardiner New York, this past Memorial Day 2016 weekend was my family's last.
This used to be a nice friendly family owned campground until it was sold to Michigan based Northgate Resorts making it a corporate owned campground. Under corporate ownership the rates have risen higher than any other campground in New York State. You are nickel & dimed to death for every little thing.
As with all campgrounds, there are rules to follow which I believe makes for better and safer camping. This campground has a list of rules that are given upon check-in. I was told that if we break any of the rules such as not wearing issued wristbands or move the fire ring, my credit card will be charged $25 for each offense. If you have a young child that happens to lose a wristband they also charge $25 for a replacement. I've been camping for 35 years and this is the first campground where I had to wear a plastic wristband and if I'm found not wearing it, I will be charged $25.
When we were here on Memorial Day weekend, the 10-month old water park was closed the entire time for repairs. When I called the campground office a few days ahead of our arrival I was told the water park would definitely be open for the holiday weekend. When we went to the Tiki Bar for ice cream we were told they didn't have any yet. How can you not have ice cream for a major holiday weekend?
The current top management has very poor customer service skills. When you ask a staff member a question, they cannot answer simple questions about the campground. They need to be trained in customer service skills and campground policy. With the new management in this campground the customer is always WRONG and it is now the campground of NO.
So if you like speeding golf carts, high prices and where the customers are not treated well by the staff, then this is the place for you. - Eagle75

This is a very nice campground. It is built on several levels. Staff was very kind and very helpful with all questions. Our site was easy to back into and was shaded: which was nice since we travel with dogs. Very pet friendly campground. Pool area was very nice and clean. They also have a snack bar area, but we didn't use that.
One major down side is that Verizon has no cell service is this area. (Not the campground fault but just a FYI.) Only place to make calls on our cells was by the store. The campground WI-FI was ok during the day and much better (faster) in the evening. Another thing is that the mosquitoes were vicious: even with a campfire and bug spray it was difficult to sit out side at night. That is why the seasonal sites have enclosed nets on their patios. Again no fault of the campground. Our rate was with our Good Sam discount. We would stay here again. - joinpa

We stayed here with another couple 4th of July weekend 2016. Our sites were very nice and shaded but were bordering a swampy area and the mosquitoes were vicious! We ended up with welts on our legs even though we had a campfire going and bug spray on! They had an Elvis impersonator for entertainment, which was hilarious! (Mostly because of the swooning of the women in the audience and his interaction with them.) The staff is very nice and the pool is very clean, although we didn't make use of it.
They have a small "catch and release" pond for fishing, but the adjacent lake is not navigable because of the vegetation. If you are planning to kayak here, forget it!
The campground overall is very nice, but a bit pricey. If you consider this place, request an area away from the wetlands. - grumpah

Campground is spotless, great staff. Very helpful. Breakfast on Mother's day morning was delicious. Great coffee! Lot spacing was spacious with a sunny/open exposure. Site surfaces were gravel and featured a fire ring and picnic table. Well kept grounds! - Cyclegirl00

Since I like Satellite TV and don't really like being in the trees, I opt for one of the 3 back in overflow sites across from the office. I have found the sites down below to be tight and not worth the trouble to get in and out. The overflow sites are fairly level and are usually easy in and out. Perfect for one night. The night we were here, they were having a wine tasting which was nice. Tons of stuff for children. - peddy dick

We had a Deluxe 50 Amp site for our 30 Amp camper. We had power issues: the breaker at our site was bad. It was hot, (89 deg F +), and we ran our A/C. A breaker in my RV tripped because of the low voltage and high amperage provided by the service box. They came out the next morning and replaced the breaker. It worked fine the rest of the stay. I thought it still may have been a problem with the camper, but we had no issues with the other two campgrounds we visited on the Eastern Seaboard that week.
We paid for a premium site, and expected everything to work, but there was no cable TV, and they would not give us a credit for not being able to provide cable. (sad face).
There was a LOT of poison ivy all over and the dogs transferred it to us.
We have been coming here for years, but will no longer even think of it. It's too expensive for what you get. We had to pay for services that we didn't get, and the grounds have steadily declined.
Wineries are nearby, but if you want something to do at the campground as an adult, go somewhere else.
Also: had to pay for pets, and a "resort fee"??? What is a Resort Fee?
Charged us for a Pull Through, when we had a Back-In. They refused to adjust that too!!! Never again... - Bob Mac

This was an overnight stop for us on the way home and we found the site to be easy to access with good hookups. There were plenty of things for children to keep busy. The bathroom that I did go into was old and not as clean as I would have wanted if I had to use their facilities. The staff was very helpful with directions. I would stay here again because of convenience but that is based on the fact that there are not many choices of campgounds beteween Delaware and Massachusetts on the way North or South on main highways. - jw of Opechee Shores

This is a very nice park with a camping feel. Lots of trees, spacious sites, green. Nice pull through, good hook up, etc. small dog park, but it's better than most parks. Nice disc golf area for walking the dog. Pool closed for the season. Husband showered and said it took a while for the water to heat. We only stayed one night but liked it. Wifi worked, which is unusual after spending four months on the road. - HayNan

About 3 miles from the Thruway but easy to find. Roomy, hard packed surface, level sites under large trees. No satellite reception but 65 channels of high quality cable reception but no PBS. The best WiFi access I have ever had in a campground. I travel with a mobile hot spot because of poor campground WiFi, but I did not have to use it here. When a camper had a serious problem with the RV the staff was very helpful with repairs and got him on his way. This campground is a good base camp to tour the mid Hudson River valley. - Travlin Tarheel

Poor outside lighting. Shower curtains too narrow and too short. Lots of roots make walking about the site difficult. Pool not supervised. - LSM55
Aug 2016 - $56.00
Heavily wooded park, grounds are very clean. Office staff was very nice and office did include a small store with the usuals. Laundry was small but clean and well kept. Wifi at our site was non existent but we were able to use Verizon hotspot. We had a nice pull thru with FHU including cable. Unfortunately the site number was posted on a tree past our site so what should have been a pull thru ended up being a back-in for our 40' coach with tow. Just one of those days.
My only real problem is the entrance to the campground. We saw no signage indicating where to stop near the office and it is very tight. So no matter what, you end up blocking traffic. Lots of seasonals here, but everyone was very friendly except the guy we blocked! - Lucky Lady from Florida

This was a great experience. The campground was quiet and clean. There is a nice stream that runs through the campground. People were friendly, the sites were flat, large and tree covered. There were lots of things for the kids to do on the campground. - rcsauce

Stayed here for a week while visiting relatives in the area. Has a great pool for the grandkids. A couple of things; first, visitors are charged $10 per adult. This was an issue because family could not visit us without paying $20 per day. Also, they charge for use of the showers. I think this is the first campground we have been to with this visitor policy and with pay showers. The space was very spacious, we not very close to any other campers. The park is very large and easy to get lost in. I think if we make this trip again, we may stay at another park. - LDJohnsonAZ

Great county run park, much like a state park, very quiet at night as it mostly gets day use. Seriously unlevel sites but big. - Mcewena
