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

We have a 32 ft RV and were told they could accommodate us. We checked in at the office which was quite rustic. They had very few items in their make-shift store. On a busy weekend, only ONE person working and had to wait 15 minutes to be checked in. Although, I confirmed the reservation, they didn’t have me down for that night. We noticed the roads were narrow and the trees were in bad need of trimming. The further we drove, the street became more like scraped paths and harder to maneuver. The sight began to look like an old RV graveyard occupied with permanent dwellers down on their luck. One hairpin curve after another required us to make several attempts at stopping and backing up in order to angle through. We finally arrived at our spot which was very difficult to maneuver. The site was just trees cut down with tree stumps left to contend with. Again, close and low hanging trees were obstacles. Once in we realized that the “full hookup” was obtainable but not near our RV. The sewage connection was about 25-30 feet away under a rusty can. The electricity was closer but still took ALL the wiring and the water pipe required 2 hoses. The loud PA system played country music until about midnight. Wife slept with the grandchild while I slept closer to the door. Did not feel safe We decided to leave the next morning and request our remaining nights pay be returned…didn’t happen. On our way out, the 5th wheel in front of us struggled to leave and in so doing swiped a tree with his hitch, ripping the carrier and hitch off. I do not recommend this campground to anyone - swedeteam

This was probably our worst campground experience yet in our 8 years of full timing! We had reservations for two 40 ft motorhomes. When we arrived, the lady immediately came out and directed me to my "site". There were so many trees I wasn't sure where she intended me to go. She led me so tight against a tree I had to unhook the toad and back up. There were so many mosquitos it reminded me of Alaska (only worse). Camouflaged in the treetops was a cable just high enough to take the MaxAir vent off the top of my coach. The gal directing me into the site never indicated there was a low cable overhead. My friend in the other coach climbed on top of my coach and lifted the cable so I could back out without taking off the air conditioner or satellite dish. The campground staff offered no help or apologies, so we both left the campground without hooking up. - XPPCo

Enjoyed this campground immensely. Although we had to boon dock, the lots were level, spacious, clean, and the grounds were manicured. There were water spigots available in several areas. The bathhouses were clean, up to date and all facilities were in great working order. The dump station was clean, easy to enter and exit. The private beach was beautiful and enjoyable and the staff personnel were friendly and very helpful. I fully intend to stay there again should we ever return to Schroon Lake. - swedeteam

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

Excellent park that can accommodate up to 30 Class A's. Lake setting with beautiful beach. Wouldn't recommend booking on line unless you are flexible as some sites are tough to negotiate. Call first for info before booking. - naturepix

This park was mostly permanent residents, most of whom weren't even there for the season yet. They only had about 5 open sites available. The campground is very wooded. The shade was nice, but it made getting the camper in & out a little difficult. We did it with no major problems, but would have loved a little more space. The owner was nice, but was busy getting everything ready for when everyone arrived in another week or so once school was out. We did not use the showers, but they seemed to be reasonably clean, though a little dated. Campground is located close to the interstate. Nice if you are moving around, but there was some road noise. There is a river side across the entry road with some swings and a small beach area. WiFi was hit or miss. For the price, it was OK. - wanderfilledlife

This is the third time we have stayed at this campground while visiting family, and it is apparent that the facilities are deteriorating. The bright and shiny decorative things shown on the website are now broken and dingy. The camp is about two thirds long term and permanent campers, but there were lots of temporary sites available when we stayed. The campground is under a heavy growth of pine trees so the dirt sites are not level and are lumpy with tree roots. Interior roads are dirt and narrow. Big rigs could be a problem. There is constant loud noise from the Interstate, which is only about 500 feet away. Particularly jarring is the screech when a vehicle goes over a short piece of rough pavement. The trees preclude satellite TV and the cable is sometimes pretty good but at other times is very snowy and unwatchable. Wi-Fi is good but only near the office. I was unable to connect at my site. We were here on weekdays and electric power was only 108 volts with the A/C running. I do not know what it would be when the campground is fully populated. The pool is clean and there are some new inflatable items for kids in the playground. The next time we visit this area we will look for another campground. - Travlin Tarheel

Good full hookup park. Mostly seasonal campers, very quiet during our visit. Cable had over 65 clear channels. Power very good. Felt at $30 it was over priced, and they give no discounts. - Teacher's Pet

This is a very rustic park located in heavy timber, which means it is a beautiful area but some sites are difficult to get into. The RV sites are more than half monthly people and few were there while we were. Those who were pretty much ignored us. Our site was no more than adequate and the sewer connection is almost usable. It is pipe on top of the ground for most sites, with a block under the end to make it drain so they are often as high as the discharge from an RV's tanks. The pipe is just horizontal with no elbow to point up at the inlet. Water was low pressure and showers were difficult in the RV. There is river access but it isn't visible from the RV sites. Our site was so sandy that previous users had left deep ruts in it and I nearly got the truck stuck in getting our small trailer parked. Larger ones would need 4WD in order to use this site. The price is this park's main attraction as most in the area are at least $10 more per night. - RV Camper1

All I can say is I had a great time at the best campground, I have stayed at in years. Everyone was friendly. The trees are beautiful; so tall and lush. I fell asleep watching them sway in the warm evening breeze. The showers where clean and good hot water. The river was nice. I rented a small canoe for the day. I thought the rate was very reasonable for the canoe and the camp sight. Almost cheep for the best time i have had in years. I am going back soon. - GoodTimesCamper

It was definitely tricky to maneuver through this campground with our 35 footer. There was really nowhere to turn around at the bottom. At check-in, the woman directed us to what she considered a turn-around, but it had an incredibly small radius. Fortunately we were able to back up onto the volleyball court and make the turn. Our site was tucked into hemlock pines, and was just beautiful. However, the constant noise from the highway, just a 1/4 mile nearby, negated any sense of peacefulness. The pool was advertised as heated, but was not. It was very cold, so my daughters wouldn't swim in it. We rented tubes from the campground and floated down the Schroon River. Unfortunately, we were told in the CG office that the float would be about 2 1/2 hours. It took us four hours. If it hadn't of been such warm water, that could have been a bit of a dangerous situation. I'd advise folks to do a bit more research about the float than we did, as there wasn't a lot of information or advise from the office here. Because of the highway noise, downtrodden aspect of the campground, and night-time partying of the seasonal campers (even on a Wednesday night), we would not return. - rvmamabel

I would have liked to give this park a 10 but because the pull-thru sites for "non-seasonal" are so close to the main road I could not. The owners have put in trees and shrubs next to the road but it will be quite some time before that will help the noise which is bad early in the morning. They are in the process of adding more and longer pull-thru full service sites on the adjacent property which they have acquired so these might possibly have less noise. From the first phone call to the park until we departed the lady who owns the park was warm, friendly and helpful. When we called to request a 2 night reservation she said if we stayed 3 nights the 3rd night was free so we took her up on the offer. Cable is $5 per night which is high compared to other parks but due to all the trees satellite was not an option. Wi-Fi worked well from our site which was nice since there is no AT&T cell service in the park. Even with close sites it wasn't bad while we were there because there were not many others parked near us. The laundry had 2 washers and 2 dryers and was very clean. We would not hesitate to stay here again if in the area. - BandPS

New owners have had the park for just over a year. They're working hard to improve it. Very nice people, except Mrs. Owner was very annoyed when we checked in because she didn't know we had Good Sam. (It took less time to correct the rate than she took in making sure I knew I'd inconvenienced her.) Be sure to ask her about any discounts when you call. AT&T doesn't work here at all. Owner said Verizon would work at office but our hotspot and phone did fine at our site. Good wifi at our site. Mostly seasonals but everything is neat and clean. They're working on increasing the number of short-term sites. Pull-thrus are close to the road and close together but noise wasn't bad. They're tight to get into. Convenient to Fort Ticonderoga, Crown Point and nearby state park. Would stay again if in area. - all4pets

Nice park with new owners. Pull-through sites are a little tight, but are fairly level and covered with gravel. Laundry and bath house are clean and nice. Wi-Fi may work at some sites, but is good at the laundry room. NO cell service at all in the campground. Water, sewer and electric hookups are well located. Cable TV available for extra charge. A few OTA TV channels available with your crank up antenna. We might stay here again. It is conveniently located near Fort Ticonderoga. - TX Camper

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

Rec room is a a mess; bathrooms are dirty and have mold all over the place; pool is not maintained well, and there is no second pool--it has been filled in. It is a beautiful location, but is very poorly maintained by the owners, which is really sad because it could be such a nice place. - waltonpie

This is now an Encore park and it seems like it's in better condition that previous reviewers said although the sites and roads are grass, gravel and dirt. We had a riverfront site with a path down to the river and it was beautiful. Lots of people were tubing. There's also a sandy beach area to enter the river. The site was nice and wide (could have fit another motorhome on one side between us and the next rig). This is a much quieter park than it's sister park, Lake George Escape, but we were invited to attend any activities there that we wanted to and they said there was a shuttle. The store was well equipped with food, camping supplies, cute camping related gifts as well as reasonably priced t-shirts. The ladies at the front desk couldn't have been nicer. Our confirmation from Encore showed a lower price than the computer showed, but we were immediately given the lower rate while they figured out what happened. I would give this place a higher rating, but the Wi-Fi is only free for 1/2 hour a day which I think is pretty petty for a big corporation. I think there are cable connections, but I used my own satellite. - RVerMJ

While this campground was quiet and clean, it is also very tight and in need of maintenance. The restrooms and showers were clean but the hall to the toilets is only one very small person wide. The showers are tiny as well. When we were there, it was dry so the interior roads were OK. The roads had very little gravel on them. The sites were tight, and they had a problem with our billing. It was an OK experience but if you are looking for a nice place, try their sister campground, Lake George Escape. - User848
