Really enjoyed our stay at this large and well maintained park. Lots of level sites for larger rigs. Lots of smaller RVs, pop ups and tents also. Nice pool, playground. Lots of shade, forest. Hiking trail to river with falls and flume. Dog hiking trail and small dog park. Good hookups. Wifi fair, but no ATT cell. Rained all day one day. Not really muddy. More like wet sand. Close to Whiteface Mtn drive and not far from Lake Placid. One of the nicest KOAs we've been to. - Motorhome girl

This campground is a destination because it is quite a trek off I-87. The roads are fine even for a big rig (45). It's a very popular campground so be sure you have reservations. Sites are level dirt/gravel and the surrounding area is dirt. Vehicles going by stir up the dust. Lots of trees so no satellite but good cable. With that being said it is a very pleasant campground with ample space between sites. Lots of tent areas. WES all fine. Picnic table and fire ring. Lots of activities for kids, breakfast served daily and a snack bar. Nice pool and playground and bathrooms were very clean. River runs along side the campground. Staff very helpful. Wifi worked surprisingly well. Would return to enjoy the area more thoroughly. - Team Asphalt

A very large campground with all the typical KOA services. Looks like they try to make improvements every year.
We selected a premium site which included a cement patio and gravel for the camper to park on. Most of the other sites only have dirt and as others have said will become muddy when it rains.
I would recommend the premium sites as the are quite comfortable. We would definitely stay here again. - John Borajkiewicz

My wife and I really enjoyed our recent stay at the North Pole Rv Park. We stayed at their newest addition to the 100 Pines area about 2/10 of a mile up Rt. 86 from the main office, campground and hotel. We enjoyed 50 amp full hook ups with cable, 11 channels, in a level spacious site number 34. These sites are the newest additions to 100 Pines. Large stone sites with plenty of spacing side to side and rear from the neighboring site. Check in was fast and pleasant.
Small complaint is where to pull in, as you approach the office on Rt. 86 with having a toad on a dolly, being careful that there is enough room to turn and navigate. That in itself turned out ok, with the owner carefully directing me out of the front lot, then having someone meet us at 100 Pines offering assistance in taking our care off the dolly and storing the dolly on site. (We later saw two staff do all of the un-loading and storing of toad and dolly on a 40 foot class A.)
100 Pines is peaceful and quiet. All the newer sites such as ours, have light posts along the camp road lighting the way at night. North Pole literature mentions that Wi-Fi is available near the rec building/bathrooms/shower, but being 3-4 sites away I had a good signal on my cell phone, along with a strong cell signal too on Verizon.
This campground offers some of the largest and nicest pull through sites that I have seen in the little older wooded (pines!) section. However, I don't think these sites are full hook up. Our neighbors mentioned that previously they stayed up the road at a KOA but liked 100 Pines much more for the quiet and generous state park sized sites.
This campground is 11 miles outside of Main Street Lake Placid, about 2 miles from Whiteface Mtn. ski lifts and summer chair rides up the ski slopes and about 8 miles from the car ride up Veteran's Memorial Highway taking you to the summit of Whiteface Mtn. We can't wait to return to North Pole RV Resort! - vincee

Very nice park well taken care of. Lot's of nearby things to do many of which are onsite, including the swimming pool, an adult game room, along with one for kids. Canoe rentals plus fishing are available on the Ausable River which adjoins the property. The park has a resort section with all the amenities but closer sites along the river plus access to the office and well stocked general store with a large selection of craft beers, including some on tap sold in growlers. Across Rt 86 is called the 100 Acre Woods section, with larger more shaded sites and access to numerous hiking paths. Clean bathrooms, stable power and good cable TV which was appreciated as SAT usage is limited to few sites due to trees, especially in the 100 Acre area. WiFi surprisingly good at the resort side, but limited across the road. Very helpful staff always waving while passing by. An enjoyable stay while visiting the Lake Placid area. - ex777driver

Pool, huge playground, great store, mini golf, river view, river swimming upstream, rec hall. Spacing is close. Wifi was inconsistent. Nice staff. Well ran park. Separate fire pit area on many sites. 10 miles from the city of Lake Placid which was nice, so the area was not quite so busy. $2 one time dog charge, but in all fairness, they do maintain a pretty long, nicely wooded dog walk through the park. Kids would especially enjoy it here. - User3274

This looks like a down-in-the-heels mobile home park with a lower area field for RVs. The best part is, it's only a few miles from the village of Lake Placid. There is nothing closer. - User424

The park is beginning to show some wear and tear. I can imagine in the 80's it was quite lovely. The couple that owns it are delightful. Many of the campers are seasonal Canadians who must come down frequently on the weekends from the Montreal area. It was extremely quiet during our stay during the weekdays. Sites are large with electric (plenty of amperage), sewer (worked perfectly) and water. There are several 150 square-foot cabins for rent too.
The location is nice if you are interested in getting into the High Peaks to do some hiking or sight seeing.
The campground has a little camp store that has some odds and ends, ice and firewood.
We have a well-equipped fifth wheel and I'm not big on amenities, so for us this was quite lovely. Don't expect luxury and you'll be just fine. - Johnboronkay

This is not a resort but if you want a true, quiet and peaceful experience under the tall Adirondack pines this is the place for you. Located only 5 easy miles from Exit 32 off I-87/Adirondack Northway. Nice pool, free WiFi, friendly owners. Pull-through & back-ins, FHU. Laundromat and propane sales. Small parts store. Nice tenting area as well.We stayed the entire Summer Season but rate reflects Passport America price per night. - Adirondack Jack

We had an excellent service, we liked the smell of the pines, it was quiet at the beginning of the season as we went during the week, we appreciated everything and we want to go back. We were there for 3 days, the cabin, the bathroom and everywhere was clean. The cabin is in front of the bathroom. My wife and I liked the cabin with the small fridge the microwave and the coffeemaker included. We played at the rebuild minigolf, it was fun and it is at no cost. The owners, a couple are friendly and do all they can to please the customers. - rfq0705

We stayed at this campground for several days in our 39' fifth wheel. There aren't many sites in this park and only a few accommodate big rigs. We had a pull-thru, full hookup site. The width was adequate, but the length wasn't. We were able to pull into the site but had to back out. Our 30 amp service worked well, but others in our party had issues with the electric service. The camp is located at an old railroad station. It has the shabby but cozy feel of old Adirondack camping. The Inn at the campground serves food which we were told was quite good although we didn't get to try it. That's because the inn and camp office are closed several days per week in the Fall. Our group used the nice pavilion and the huge campfire area. We would stay here again if we were in this area because there are few options. - FifthWheel Travelers

Sites are decent size, but consist of soft packed dirt. Our site, as well as others, was heavily rutted and sloped off badly towards the trees. Electrical hookups are a disaster. Many have taped on extension cord pigtails for you to plug into. Plugs range from one 50 amp plug to 15 amp plugs and the associated breaker may not match the plug. The cable TV is good, but the wires for it are scattered all over and laying on top of the ground. Management appears to be generally more concerned about their inn than their campground. We stayed there two weeks in a motorhome, but would not return again. - RVRovers

Interesting spot as long as your rig is not too large. Back in spots on grass with utilities between each two sites, so might be on the wrong side. We did not see the sewer hookup until parked and did not have enough hose. Very good water, good power, cable and WIFI. Bathrooms were old, but relatively clean. Did not use laundry other than deep sink. Interesting old style north country bar/restaurant with good food - we enjoyed the weekend prime rib and fried haddock. Lots of trails for walking (snowmobiling). Great spot for local canoe/kayaking. Mostly folks who spend 2 to 4 weeks every year. Nothing really for kids, great for adults. Friendly campers and owners. Not much in this area w/ hookups. We were torn between rating 6 or 7. - 2hams

I camped at other campgrounds with all the bells and whistles then here. I enjoyed this trip more, nothing over-the-top but a nice campground. The adventures of the chasm directly across the street is why we will return. Unlike any experience in NY State. Highly recommended!! - RiggsandClem

Very old & musty bathrooms. Showers were tiny, but fairly clean. Very hilly & unlevel lots, but nice & shady. Okay for overnight after touring the gorgeous Ausable Chasm. - Jeter1954

Formerly a KOA. Needs some work, but it was ok to use as a base for visiting the local area. Stayed five nights. Site was surrounded by tall pines, but was open enough to see the stars at night. It was all grass, fairly level, w/picnic table and fire ring. Campground shower area was private with each of the shower areas having its own entry door. Didn't see or hear anything about the thefts as mentioned in the previous post. We were near the front of the campground and therefore close to the office so that may have provided some protection. Interior roads were rough in some areas, but not bad enough to do any damage. - JWEngle

When we pulled in and went into the office, we were surprised, it is small and overwhelmed with 'stuff.' But the woman behind the desk seemed to have it under control. She was friendly and courteous and a gentleman stepped into the office to help her. Our site was huge, more room than previous campgrounds we've stayed at. Cable TV had more than enough channels and our Wi-Fi hookup, although 'low,' was adequate to get online and do whatever you had to do. We were next to the highway which didn't bother us and the occasional train went by. I was disappointed that I couldn't actually see any as they passed by. The trains weren't that bothersome, either. In all, we enjoyed our stay - Ausable Chasm which is about four miles south is an awesome place to visit. - Patches

Owners were very friendly, but was disappointed when a cigarette was lit while we were signing in. Sites were large, dirt and grass with concrete patio slabs. Our site was was not even close to level and trash was strewn around behind our campsite. Campground is rundown and needs some work, especially the roads. Restrooms, showers and laundry were extremely rundown and dirty. Cable TV and internet were good. We camped here three nights. - golplt

Sites are reasonable size and services generally functioned as advertised. Office is old, cramped, unclean, and filled with cigarette smoke. The park is noisier than we like. Pool filled on the weekends with children, highway noise behind our site, frequent trains day and night, and weekend karaoke music until 11 pm loud enough to hear inside every rig across the entire park. Laundry facilities consist of one working washer and a dryer that did not dry anything. Laundry building and restroom/bathhouse are old and deteriorated, open to all the elements and bugs, chicken-wire doors, if any, open wood slat floors, leaking water, dirty/moldy showers, no light or A/C in laundry building except for open door. Site electric posts have no fuse, an obvious safety concern when plugging in since we couldn't turn it off first. Will not stay here again. - revs2010

Nice very quiet private campground. Sites are on the larger size for a private campground. No screening between sites. Staff was helpful and friendly. Laundry facilities are modern and clean. Looks like about half the sites are occupied by seasonal campers, but they are all very nice and a quiet group. Utilities are good and very good wifi worked at our site. We would definitely stay here again. - User3589

This was a decent place to stay for the month we were in the area. The monthly rate was reasonable. While we didn't find the people of New York to be particularly friendly, the gentleman that manages this park is an exception once you've been there a while. Most of the sites are occupied by seasonal/annual campers so as is often the case, weekends were busier and a bit louder. Lots of shade on each site. We were happy for a larger outdoor rug as the sites are quite sandy. We would stay here again if we were in the area. - The Shaws

Place was OK but older and run down. Staff was OK. If first impressions mean a lot, this one didn't do too well. Front office and store old and cluttered, not real organized. Plenty of hats and T-Shirts but overpriced at $17.00. Not sure why I didn't really care for the place but one issue for me was the roads around the campground. They were full of pot holes. The roads needs an overhaul with lots of gravel. The patchwork and repairs haven't worked too well. We moved over to maybe the only site that has satellite access for TV (#39). Small swimming pool looked good. We have a nice view of the pond. Not sure we'd be back. - rwarner22

This is one great place if you are into nature as the park is on Lake Champlain and the Ausable River. Our site (#19) backed up to the lake with a view of Burlington, VT. The lake front has two beach areas and plenty of fishing, lake and river. The bad part for some of the campers was the Sat. night storm took down some trees and all the power lines, so campground was unattended with no water or toilets and showers. This was not a problem for us as we are self contained. The good thing was when rangers showed Monday morning and didn't charge us and refunded everyone in the park who had paid. Great state conservation area. Sites are very large and some will hold up to 40' RVS. - Mikeeg

We selected this site on the internet using the Reserve America web site. The web site indicated that the site we chose would take a 35ft motorhome. We were very disappointed with the site. Just enough room for the motorhome and not much room for anything else. And we were next to a swamp and almost living on top of our neighbors - who had two tents and lots of visitors. We booked for three nights but stayed only one. We tried to get another site but the campground was full and the campground staff were not very interested. We will not be staying in this campground again. We stayed in site 100. - sandgropers
