25 Parks near Ticonderoga, New York

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

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 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

This is a Vermont State Park with no hookups but a dump station. We had a nice, clean, and quite large site right on the water which offered privacy and scenic viewing. The restroom for our particular loop was immaculate. Surprised there was only one shower. Would not want to be there in high season! The rangers were friendly and helpful. The park was very quiet at night. We heard owls and saw eagles flying over the pond. For a day trip, we put our tow vehicle on the ferry, about an hour away, and did the 7 minute crossing to Fort Ticonderoga. Lake George is about 2 hours away. There isn't a lot to do here if you're not into fishing, hiking or just relaxing, but the local scenery is superb in the autumn. There are beautiful lakes and farmlands surrounding the campground. Lots of farm stands selling fresh, local produce. Very happy we stayed here and would return. - Buckie

My family and I camp here every year. This is a nice quiet clean campground. The staff here run this campground excellent. I have not been to any place yet that matches this campground. If you want a nice quiet, clean get away camp here. - bigjimbo78

This is a lovely Vermont State Park where you can camp next to the lake. Fishing is excellent with hiking trails abundant. Vermont is into "Old Fashioned" camping sites so no hook-ups which was OK with us since we have solar and a generator as part of our 27 foot motorhome. There are several lakes nearby and biking on the backroads. We have extended for a full week. If one can do without hookups, this is a great find. They do have a dump station and a water source for RVs. Roads are a bit narrow so I'd not recommend any rigs over 30 feet long. The staff is very friendly. - David R

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

The park has new owners, and wow what a difference it has made! I camped here twice in 2008 and the campground was immaculate, and the owners were very helpful and courteous. They made me feel very welcome, even suggested areas to visit and had menus of local restaurants to look at. There is a new store and office that has loads of stuff and the pool area is very well equipped with furniture and tables. The campground had many campers both times I visited, but I still felt like I was camping in Vermont with beautiful trees and large grassy areas. The owners were diligently cleaning the bath house every morning and every night. I highly recommend the Campground!! - DGSteve

Only campground we ever went to, where they had no provision for our trash (told us to take it with us)! You could pay $4 a bag to have your trash taken. They also told us not to pick up our dog waste (we did anyway). Bathrooms dirty. If you stay one night you pay extra to dump. No chairs by the pool. No recreation facilities. Everything was for the convenience of the owners. We have NEVER felt so unwelcome. We were only one of 4 campers at the campground and we quickly found out why it was so empty. Large grassy sites, though. They do keep it mowed. Its a passion of the owner, he mows all day! That's all he does. I don't think they ever clean the bathrooms. Extra for A/C. - pyrlover

We needed a cg near Burlington as we were going to a rally and this fit our needs. Big rigs are an easy fit. We are a 36' MH plus toad. Delightful cg. rv owners, actual rvers, new owners(2nd year). We were greeted warmly at the office, paid and then led to our site. We were as far from the office as we could be and the wifi was very solid. Only 30a service but they are planning to upgrade to 50a. Would come back here again. - Wandering

We stayed at this park for 6 nights. Wonderful people! Though close to Hwy 7, it was very quiet, lots of trees between us and the road. The owner is new as of August 2014. He has put a lot into fixing it up and plans to continue the upgrades. My only criticism is the wifi, thet do have it, but currently you have to be within 30-40 yds of the office...none of the sites are that close. Owner is trying to correct that with his vendor. Will stay here again for sure.41. - kltfaught
