We arrived a bit early and felt unwelcomed by the lady at the front desk who seemed furious that we would dare to do so! She did begrudgingly requested that someone check to see if our site was empty, which it was. In fact, there was hardly anyone in the back part of the campground where our site was located. Other than the undesirable reception, the rest of our stay was pleasant. All hookups worked perfectly, as did the cable. The Wi-Fi signal was not constant. The bathhouse (Restroom #1) in our area was immaculate, showers strong, hot and the washer and dryer were efficient. It’s a heavily wooded setting with a dirt surface. I’m not sure I’d want to be there in the rain, as I expect it might be a sea of mud. We didn’t use the pool, eat in the snack bar or participate in the many advertised activities, but others looked as if they were having an enjoyable time. It’s a great spot for exploring this beautiful area of the Adirondacks. A trip to the town of Lake Placid is a must, as is a visit to the site of the 1980 Winter Olympics, and a drive up Whiteface Mountain. We camped at Lake Placid / Whiteface Mtn KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Fantastic campground close to all there is to do in the Lake Placid area. The only negative was the location of our deluxe patio site. It is at the entrance to campground so you have a steady stream of cars passing 20 yards from the patio. Also, the immediate view is of the office and the dumpsters in the distance. One morning a staff member cleaned the road using a blower and completely covered our camper and breakfast in dirt. If they moved the patio sites to the rear of the campground it would be much better. We got to meet the Olympic bobsled and skeleton team there and the other events were well run and entertaining. Wi-Fi worked perfect. We will be back. We camped at Lake Placid / Whiteface Mtn KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This is by far the best campground in the Lake Placid area, and the best in the ADK mountains. Its initial appearance when you first enter is breathtaking. The lodge is a beautiful large 2 story log built building that hosts the camp store, registration office, adult lounge, laundry, novelty store, breakfast kitchen, and a dining room. The staff is very friendly and professional and will do what it takes to make you feel like family. There is also a beautiful clean pool and game room along with a snack bar on the property. This KOA is a recent corporate purchase and undergoing major changes. Most sites are shaded and level and it is truly a big rig friendly park. There are some new premium sites with concrete patios also. The new management is what makes this park an A+. There are cottage rentals available as well as tent sites. KOA has great plans for this park and it will only get better. We will come here again. We camped at Lake Placid / Whiteface Mtn KOA in a Motorhome.

Great location with an easy drive. The roads can be very narrow at times along with the sites. All sites are dirt and many flood when it rains. We first arrived while it was raining to find our site underwater. Asked at office and luckily were able to move. Be aware that the rows to the front of campground are larger and less prone to flooding. My first impression was not good. It is also confusing how to drive around the campground as I went the wrong way. Again it was pouring and very crowded. We camped at Lake Placid / Whiteface Mtn KOA in a Travel Trailer.

A true Adirondack adventure awaits. Beautiful park and so much to do. Great nature walks and tons of activities available. Movie nights and ice cream social were a hit, and breakfast. Feel a bit nickel and dimed with needing to pay extra for some activities but at least they have much to offer. Bring your tennis rackets, basketball and hiking shoes! Very spacious sites. Would definitely come again and recommend. We camped at Lake Placid / Whiteface Mtn KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

The drive to this park in a big rig is very doable and it is a great location for exploring the Adirondacks. Within the park are 4 long rows of 50 amp full hookup with cable sites that will accommodate large rigs, some are gravel most are dirt, but all look level. We were given a site on row C, which faces the tent and cabin area. This row is nice for a class A because you’re not looking right at another RV, but into a wooded area and if you are really lucky you might even get a spot of sky for your satellite dish. but the whole park is very wooded so don’t be disappointed. The road around the park is hard packed gravel with some large pines close to the edge, but nothing that can’t be easily navigated in a 40 ft class A or 40ft 5th wheel. Sprint does not provide service in this area, but the free park WI-FI worked just fine from our campsite. Bathrooms are well maintained and staff was friendly and accommodating. This park sits next to the Ausable River and there are walking trails that go a beautiful flume waterfall, a must if you stay here. We camped at Lake Placid / Whiteface Mtn KOA in a Motorhome.

Nice KOA in a REALLY nice location. We actually stayed in two different sites because I decided to get there a day earlier than originally planned. It was Ironman weekend in Lake Placid so they were pretty full. In fact, when I first tried to reserve they WERE full so I asked to be wait-listed. I got a prompt call when a spot opened. The sites were big, clean, and level. The facilities seemed very nice and clean. The things that keep it from being a 10 are that the road has 3 "humps" that I would classify as ditches dug for drainage. These really need steel plates or something over them. We actually bottomed out our car on one of these and I had to spend a half hour fixing a couple things. There was also no flexibility in checking out late. I was worried about getting back in time Monday morning to leave by 11:00 and other KOAs will offer late checkout for a couple bucks an hour. No such luck here. I found the Wi-Fi to work very well. There were two wireless networks and when one didn't work. I switched to the other and really had no issues. We camped at Lake Placid / Whiteface Mtn KOA in a Motorhome.

Great campground on the Ausable River. Close to a ton of fun activities for all ages. All sites are shaded with plenty of trees, but sites where roomy and not on top of one another. Clean facilities. Only reason I did not give it a 10 was the WiFi. You had to log on every hour and speeds where slow. It's an annoyance that shouldn't be in this day and age.

This is a very nice campground! The entire campground is in the forest making for lots of shade. Although the roads are dirt/gravel, there was not a lot of dust or mud when it rained. The setting is quiet and very relaxing. There are plenty of hiking trails nearby and the Ausable river is within walking distance from the campground. The staff was friendly and helpful. We would stay here again since it was close to Lake Placid and other activities in the Adirondack's. We camped at Lake Placid / Whiteface Mtn KOA in a Motorhome.

This is a simply wonderful campground! Wooded yet the sites are wide, spacious enough accommodate wide rigs with multiple slides and separated from one another for some privacy. Despite the fact that there are many children around, it is remarkably quite. The staff is friendly and maintains a neat and very clean campground. Strong Wi-Fi signals. There is also great walking trail along the Ausable River. Finally, it is conveniently located near Lake Placid, Whiteface Mountain, and the High Peaks area of the Adirondacks. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Lake Placid / Whiteface Mtn KOA in a Motorhome.

This is our third time staying at this campground. We have to downgrade it only because the staff is so deadpan. Someone needs to give these people a peptalk and some people skills. Campground is fine, roads could use some work though. We camped at Lake Placid / Whiteface Mtn KOA in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice, busy, but quiet campground. We were in a premium site which was near the office/lodge and near the pool, game room and snack bar. The site was pull-through and very level. They have a nice dog trail and park and there are trails along the Ausable River. The campground is very close to Whiteface Mountain Ski area and Veterans Hwy which takes you to the summit of Whiteface Mt. Lake Placid is not too far as well. Check-in was quick, the staff was efficient, not as friendly as other places we've been. We would stay here again. We camped at Lake Placid / Whiteface Mtn KOA in a Motorhome.

Park was a nice setting, but the sand was terrible. Every site that I saw was sand, had to clean air conditioner filter as when we left it was black. Pool was nice, most sites were big and well treed. Very close to Placid and attractions. Park was very quiet. Wi-Fi, and cable TV were good. Nice park except for the sand!
