We camped here one night last year and I felt I did not have sufficient information to do a full review. This time we stayed two nights and enjoyed the camp very much. Like others have said this park has many well manicured grassy sites with mature shade trees through out the park. It is very quiet and I love the fact that there are no golf carts driving around all day. Showers and laundry are in a "trailer" building. Although they are a bit old, the showers have everything you want, towel bar, seat, dressing area with drainage mat, and plenty of hot water. Staff is very courteous and eager to please. We were to have a FHU site but when we arrived we found out that the person on the site we were to have had technical difficulties and was waiting for a part so we were offered a water/electric 30 amps and one night free. With a clean and easy to reach pump out area, I thought it was a great bargain. They even have a fenced dog area large enough to throw a toy. No special amenities for children but great views of the scenic Mohawk river. - Trainspotter

This is an absolutely beautiful RV Park. The roads and sites are gravel, with green grass and trees everywhere. We are unable to get satellite service at our site. Internet service is good. A staff member has been extremely helpful, first with our car that wouldn't start; and then trying to get sateliite service. It's a medium size park with circular areas for RVs. There is a large fenced in grassy area for dogs. - Gusie

Site was level, clean. A bit close to other sites but very workable. We were about 100 feet from river. OTA TV worked well. WiFi worked well. No sewer at site, dump station available. Great little campground. Cash or checks only. Could barely hear trains. Will stay here again!! - Jdon

We were looking for a place to camp for a couple of nights to break up a 10 hour drive from our home to our destination in Vermont. Depending on which direction you come in the entrance can be tricky for some bigger RV. It is a very sharp left turn to enter. Fortunately we have a little pop up. Our site was decent, pretty level, a little wet from recent rains, but shady as requested. Too close to the road for my liking but more than enough space. My disappointment set in when I went to use the restroom. I was told at check in that there were two bathrooms on our level. Showers, laundry etc were in one central location at the bottom. Okay, I can deal with that. The restrooms were a step above a pit toilet. They were flush, very old, smelled. One extremely dirty sink with only cold water, the hot water handles were removed. No mirrors, shelf, hooks. The majority of "campers" are Big RV's and seasonal. Some look like they have been there for years. Some well maintained , others pretty scary. The level below was for tents. It was packed to the brim. And the "campers" in my opinion were not educated in camping etiquette. Several groups/families together with a ton of kids. Great I love to see families enjoying the outdoors. However, the adults spent a lot of time drinking, were loud; did not bother to monitor the kids. Starting at 645 am all we heard was Mom mom mom or dad dad dad .... repeatedly. I wanted to say PLEASE respond to your child, clearly they need your attention. Our 2nd night while eating dinner the noise level was rising. I wanted to take a hot shower, but did not want to hike up & down to the central location. There is no parking near it. The staff is not friendly. We were warned about exceeding the 5 MPH speed limit. Yes we were going at least 7 mph. Most ride around in golf carts We ended up packing up & leaving early. I only recommend this as last resort if you need a place for a night. Definitely not worth what they are charging. Not a great place if you are a Pop UP or tent camper. - abuelita2jnj

We had a 50 AMP back in Site on heavy gravel. Most of the Park are seasonal. The seasonals are not that friendly, and are cliqueish. The staff is helpful and very nice. The laundry areas are not clean, and one on the hill by the pool smells horrible. The park is quiet at night. Some sites were very unlevel, causing Rvers to use blocking on their leveling jacks. The sewer hookup was at the rear requiring a long sewer hose! We would not drive the distance or return to this park for the cost per night. They charge too much for what you get. - Lindy White

The grounds felt more like a trailer park than a campground. If you want WiFi, they charge $14 per gig, and you can only get that if you call while one, specific employee is working. Otherwise "maybe tomorrow". The ground at my site was sloppy, and after sitting still for two days, my motorhome wouldn't budge. I called the front desk for help. After 40 minutes of waiting, I called again. The desk person was belligerent, despite having not bothered to even call the groundskeepers yet (which he then did on his walkie-talkie, took around 30 seconds). - Liam Meilleur

This campground is very nice located 18 miles southwest of Albany with 121 sites located in three loops. No services but many of the campsites are a good size located in a forest with a few having lake views. The bottom loops seem to be quieter than the beach loop sites 1 -52. Our site was a good size located in the beach loop with a picnic table and a huge fire pit. Nice site. Since we came in on Memorial Day and it seemed to have been full for the weekend there was a long line for the dump station and a lot of campers in the park. The beach is not always open during the week. The restrooms were clean considering this was Memorial Weekend. The park has the beach, nature center, basketball court, horseshoe pit , playground, volleyball and picnic sites. The check-in girl was very nice especially since she was overwhelmed with all the campers trying to leave, day trippers coming in for the beach and campers looking for sites. The problem at this state park is that it is full on weekends and not many during the week but then they let a number of people or groups come for the day. There are a number of picnic tables for these groups or families to use but some try to come in the beach loop and use the campsites. I will say the workers did patrol frequently and very nicely tried to move some of these groups out. There is a shortage of parking for the number that they allow in so the beach loop had cars parked along the campsite road which can cause a problem. We would have had a problem getting our RV out of our site. Many of the groups were loud and they are allowed to stay to 10 at night. I know this was Memorial Day, so I have to make an exception but my rating of the beauty of the park, facilities, sites, and staff would have been a 8 with no services. Since they let to many people in for the daily beach pass with not enough parking, I will rate the park lower. Monday night there were only a few of us in the park overnight. - gsnakehill

My wife and I took our trailer here for our very first maiden trip. The sites were flat, clean and nicely wooded. This park is a nice family park that has a nice beach area and boat launch. - bigjimbo78

The site had a fire ring and picnic table. Nice shade trees. We requested lakeside, and received a lakeside spot, but a fence was up. So you could not reach the water from our campsite. We had a very nice time. Would go again. - dgenco

Site size very nice, site 1 thru 31 have 30 amp connection 32 and above will need adapter to standard home plug.
Power and water connections are at the back of the site and are "shared" between two sites, extra length of water hose and power may be needed to reach connection.
No sewer connection at site, "honey" wagon service available $10 per pump out.
Walking around 80 to 90% of sites are seasonal, grading of sites are needed in the area of the playground and 7 acre field, saw one that had to put in 12 to 18 inches of blocks to get level on a small TT, this only for 5 or 6 sites.
There is enough room to put ones trailer or rig parallel to the road.
Wireless service is good (VZ), no Wi-Fi.
For a holiday weekend nose level was better than expected.
Spacing is good, you will not feel that you are encroaching on the next site.
Will be coming back. - Ramcharger459

Very nice campground for a weekend stay. We had a nice shaded spot. Would stay again; very pleasant atmosphere. Owners very helpful and courteous. - SASSY01

We have been seasonal for 4 years and this is the last year for us. To call this a camping resort is bazaar. When it rains many sites flood along with the crater size potholes and when it's dry out, the dust is over whelming and choking. This season we have to listen to the construction vehicles all day long. I can not in all reality recommend this park to any campers. We paid $3600. for the season going to $3900. in 2018. - Kathy Coffey

The camp ground is a mess. We have been coming for years, it seems to get worse. Our water spout is broken and sewer hook up was all covered up. We had to rake the site, it had a ton of thick leaves on it. Our table was all chewed up on the bench. We asked to have it switched out at 5pm and told all the workers are gone. It's too bad, it used to be nice a place. We will be giving a different camp ground our money this summer. - OScher

They do have a nice list of activities for kids and adults. DJ one night with a band the second night along with hayride, which consisted of a wagon pulled by a truck, Bingo and crafts. I would estimate the campground is 90 percent permanent party campers. Leaving very few spots for weekenders. The spot they had for us was flooded with about 3 inches of water covering the entire site, so I requested a new site. After much whisper and meeting behind a closed door they said they had another site. I did make a reservation on January 25th and alerted them of the size of out camper. They drove me down to the site, which was not flooded and worked for us for the weekend, but they were very prompt to inform me that if there were no sites I wanted due to them being flooded they would not refund me my money and it was my problem. The two family pools were disgusting. Completely green is color and extremely dirty. I would not allow my son to swim in them. The water slides they had were suppose to be open from 12-3. At 12:00 only two out of the four were open for kids to go on. At 12:45 the mid sized slide opened and when we left at 1:30 the largest slide was still not open. On the next day, 3 slides were open on time and then the large slide opened at 12:30, but for only a half hour then they closed it. There had been no campground cleanup done. Piles of leaves were every where, where the campers had raked their sites, but the leaves on the campground facility had not been cleaned up at all. The playground area was almost non-usable from where they had not finished the work they had started. The site and roads were gravel, which turned to mud when it rained at all or were extremely dusty when it was dry. - tshaunb

No frills, just a great place. Rate shown is Passport America. Managers are great and helpful and keep the area well maintained. Has limited number sites for short term use. We would stay again. - kick

Although this location is mostly permanent mobile homes, we always look forward to coming back to visit. Easy big-rig parking and setup (this is our third time here in 3 years), only 10 minutes from Saratoga Springs, in a nice quiet area. Not a destination park, no pool, playground, etc., but friendly, easy, convenient and flat. I wish we had planned to spend more time here this year. I'm not sure how many RV sites they have, and they don't take reservations. - melissabrvs

Hidden Gem right off the main road. Clean, quiet, our big rig (45') fit nicely along with our towed, pet friendly as long as you pick up after them and keep your fur-baby leashed. We enjoyed the event that was held while we stayed. Friendly owner. We enjoyed our 10 night stay and will return. - PERRELLAS

The owners really are the nicest folks you could meet. FHU's & long pull through sites, however the gravel sites are far from level, our rear tires were 3" off the ground. The park is quiet, & way off the beaten path, 15 miles to town. Bath/showers are kept clean but are a bit beaten. Not a lot to do here in the campground. - rvrrat520

The main campground is a little sparse for vegetation. We stayed two nights and got to stay in the seasonal area (most of their seasonal guests had left for the winter), which was tucked away in the trees. Very nice hiking. Looks like there is a group area that can be used by a large group such as boy scouts. We felt very comfortable and safe at this park. - FloridaWanderers

The family that owns the campground are the friendliest people you'll ever meet. It is a small campground, but it is everything the website claims. It is quiet and peaceful, with a nice hiking trail. The only bad thing i could say is the gnats were heavy the weekend we stayed there, but that comes with the territory. We've stayed there before, and would stay there again as it is close to home when we can only get away for a short stay. - 2006F-150

Basic overnight park off I-88. Narrow road within the park with some low hanging trees. Road noise. Verizon MiFi okay, but Verizon cell service was limited. Good OTA television reception. Park is overpriced at $30. - Dave51

This is a small, quaint campground off NY7 and adjacent to I-88. The owner wasn't there at check-in but a sign directed us to pick an open spot. Being mid-October, there were plenty to chose from. While you're mainly in a grass field with seasonals occupying the outside sites, the weekenders like us had level pull-thru, shaded sites. The owner stopped by to welcome us, asked if we needed anything, and suggested sites to see and a place to eat (Gibby's, 5 mi east and recommended). He checked on us daily at 6:30pm; nice touch! The only thing from giving this a 10 is the road noise from I-88, which isn't a big deal. We will camp here again. - theheils

Very nice family owned campground. Owner was not there when we checked in, but a note on the door told us to pick a site, which we did. Lots of green grass and trees. Site was level. Owner checked in on us later in the day. Very nice and helpful. We would definitely stay here again. - cneeka

We found this park to be less than satisfactory. The dirt road to the sites are very narrow and filled with pot holes, ruts and rocks. The office is open very limited hours and some days not at all. Difficult to have mail delivered since it is questionable when you would being to pick it up. No escort to your site, really very little assistance with anything. You are pretty much on your own. Weak wi-fi, no Verizon cell service. We traveled in a 45' motor home which was extremely difficult to maneuver to our site. Proximity to Saratoga is not a quick trip in for any supplies, shopping, etc. - Eagle2013

We stayed for 3 days and frankly couldn’t wait to leave! There are very few choices from which to select if a visit to Saratoga Springs is planned, and we chose the one with the least negative comments. The location, although only 8.5 miles from Saratoga, seemed unbelievably remote – our GPS couldn’t even find it. When we finally found the place, we were given a campground map and directed to a location up a circuitous road, hilly and filled with deep potholes – no escort. Our site was not level, and the hookups were not conveniently located for our size trailer. Situated in a heavily wooded area, the surface was dirt, and we were relieved it wasn’t raining. The only plus was the bathhouse, which was immaculate. The showers, metered, were hot and strong, but not well designed without a place to put one’s clothes and inconveniently located hooks. There is a very weak Verizon signal. It’s definitely not a repeat for us! - Safe Trip

We stayed for a week. The roads in the campground are narrow and full of pot holes with tree branches brushing our RV. Our site was level and the utilities worked. This park caters to seasonal guests. There have some daily and weekly sites beside the office. We were in a 40+ foot RV and I did not see another site that we would fit into. I would nor stay in this RV park again. - kleamon
