Large pools of standing water when we arrived. Excellent views of St. Lawrence River from most sites in loop A. Small unguarded sandy beach on sheltered cove near loop A with main beach and playground close to other loops. Shopping & restaurants 12 miles away in Massena. Many sites were re-flooded during our one week stay as there is no provision for drainage. We camped at Coles Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Boat ramp is outside park just to the north, but you can launch a kayak or canoe right in the park. When shopping etc. in Massena visit the Eisenhower Locks to observe shipping on the Seaway and see the museum about the construction.

The Park is VERY well maintained and, most sites have at least a view of the St. Lawrence Seaway. MANY of the sites are right ON the water. You can relax and, watch the big ocean going ships cruise up and, down the river. The bathrooms are exceptionally clean with LARGE showers.! Great fishing in the river if you have a boat and, there's several launch sites within a mile. Free one with trailer parking just west of the campsite. If you are a golfer don't miss the Massena Country Club. It's about a 20 minute drive East. Also the Eisenhower Locks are close by and interesting. The ONLY drawback is there's NOT a lot of shade. We camped at Coles Creek State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a State owned park. Very clean, on the shores of the St. Lawrence Seaway. Firewood available, they bring to spot. A variety of lot sizes, 4 dumping stations, power for big Rvs, tent sites. Grass is maintained, no dirt sites. Paved roads. We have been coming here a few times a year. No stores close by, pick up essentials in Ogdensburg or Massena. We camped at Coles Creek State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Our family camps here every summer. We love it.

Right on the St. Lawerence Seaway . It is gorgeous! Canada is right across the River. We enjoy fishing and swimming.

Most sites are grass with some trees on almost every site. We love section A which is electricity at every site 30 amp . Water spickets through out area to fill holding tanks before parking. Dumping station available before leaving. This section is pet friendly.

Picnic table and fire places at every site.

We have no problem parking our 36 foot fifth wheel. We camped at Coles Creek State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Absolutely spectacular views of the St. Lawrence Seaway from the waterfront sites. Just about any of the prime waterfront sites are excellent. I would be wary about the non-prime sites because many had standing water and were very muddy. If you like waterfront camping, this place is perfect. The electric power was the best we've had at any campground. Verizon cell phones work well, but do be aware that you will bounce off Canadian cells and might be subject to roaming charges. The garbage was picked up several times a day. You can kayak or fish directly from your waterfront campsite. Several campers brought their power boats and were mooring them at a small sandy bay near loop A. This is a state campground so their are no water or sewer hookups, but the views are worth "roughing" it a wee bit. We watched many birds: sea gulls, loons, cormorants, osprey and ducks. While in the area, you can travel up to Ottawa which is about 90 miles away and worth the trip. There is very little to do in the area surrounding the campground, but for a few days it is certainly worth the visit. We hope to return next year. We camped at Coles Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

This campground occupies a beautiful location right on the St Lawrence River. My campsite was within 50 feet of the shoreline. The sites are well spaced, but for many the boundaries are unclear resulting in vehicles being parked at a number of odd angles. When I arrived at the park no maps or information regarding park polices were supplied. In addition, park staff wasn’t very helpful. When I requested directions to my campsite I was told that “it’s right on the point”. Considering the price, which includes a $9 on-line registration fee, I've downgraded it. We camped at Coles Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

Very large park on St. Lawrence River. Excellent bathrooms and shower facilities and many electric and non-electric sites from full sun to full shade depending on your liking. Great views of the river. Small beach for swimming. Staff very friendly and helpful. Campground is clean and popular with weekenders. We camped in on site #45 which has an excellent riverview and access to everything. Water located at spigots through-out the park. We camped at Coles Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

Overall Rating:

Ok but busy state park. Most have good electric, water is located throughout park. We were on loop B, a no pets loop. Online shows this loop with an equipment length of 20 feet. Some of the sites can handle up to a 40 foot rig, but not many. While basically level, this park has 'rolley polley' sites, looks like they were back fill that was spread out without really being graded. So you kind of need to know which sites are good, which are bad. They were nice enough to allow us to drive through and pick a site from a list of sites that they gave us. This was on a Friday after we called to verify that they had sites available. Loop A has the best sites. All sites are grass except for 5 or 6 down at the end of a dead end road. Nice family park right on the St. Lawrence Seaway. TV reception was bad, only a couple stations from Canada. Verizon broadband was slow, phones ok. We camped at Coles Creek State Park in a Motorhome.
