We stayed 10 days in the 100 acres part of the park which is cross the street and down the road from the office and the "resort" part of the park. The pool, store and river is on the resort side but the 100-acre sites are very pleasant and well done. We showed up a day early and had reserved a wooded site but when the manager found out we wanted satellite he graciously put us in a wide open site that was extremely large, level and beautiful. Utilities worked well but, strangely, the water lines are on top of the ground, not buried, so during the day incoming water is scalding hot until line is purged.  Had to purge with water hose several times. Shaded sites don't have this issue. Couldn't connect to Wi-Fi but they reset the repeater at the bath house and we received it pretty well for a week. It quit again but they reset it and it worked with no problems. Very clean and neat Park even in tent areas. Maintenance workers are constantly available. We camped at North Pole Resorts in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at North Pole Resorts in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Get an Olympic Sites Passport. It is $35 a person and well worth it for the 5 or so activities it provides. Go to the top of Whiteface via the Veterans Memorial Highway. Take the Gondola up the ski run. Watch the ski jumping and ski acrobatics. All, and more included in the Passport.

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. We camped at North Pole Resorts in a Motorhome.

Very friendly staff, very clean and quiet. Very quiet. Great store with a great craft beer selection. The camp fire rings are behind the sites, so you are secluded. We would stay here again. We camped at North Pole Resorts in a Motorhome.

This CG has everything you want. The camp store is the best I have seen, food, gifts, rv supplies, clothes. They escort you to your site. FHU , gravel site with grass on either side. A game room , restrooms. The sites are raked after you leave and grass cut. The grounds are meticulously kept. No seasonals on this side so the park looks very appealing. A mini golf and pool with river access and boat rental. The park is quiet at night . WiFi and Verizon reception is good. We took rt 87 north and it is 28 miles off the exit. The view is beautiful surrounded by the mountains on all sides. We stayed in the resort section, but there is another section across the street and down the road a bit this is more rustic , no river access. The only con ; the sites are close together about 10 ft apart.. Would stay again. We camped at North Pole Resorts in a Motorhome.

We had difficulty finding the entrance to this campground. There is a large sign, but at the time, there were 2 campers parked at the entrance getting ready to exit, so we missed the entrance. We entered at the 100 Acres section (where our site was booked), but had to circle around a house on a very narrow and unlevel road (in the 44' rig) to get back to the entrance to register. In hindsight, we should have unhooked the toad and returned to registration in it, leaving the rig with the escort. The roads and pads in this section are gravel, and it is very wooded, so we had satellite issues. There is free wifi but in this section, you cannot get a signal at your site. Other utilities worked well. We camped at North Pole Resorts in a Motorhome.

Campground in good location near Lake Placid and other attractions. Staff helpful and friendly. Sites fairly close and road to camping area narrow; only one way in and out. Bathhouses old but clean. Located on river and you can rent kayaks at the campground. Have a well stocked camp store. The playground, putt-putt, and pool were very nice. Rate reflects Good Sam discount. We camped at North Pole Resorts in a Motorhome.

This campground has a lot going well for it. It is very clean and well maintained. Each spot is raked and cleaned after the camper leaves. Hookups are well done and in the right location for a variety of units. We were in the front part of the CG and it seemed a bit less crowded than the River end. Water pressure was OK and cable did fine. Site was pretty level. They have a nice playground and pool plus a game room inside, outside bocci, basketball, and a clean laundry. For all those reasons the place would be a 9 or 10. Unfortunately, there are some negatives that caused me to rate them lower. Depending upon your needs these may, or may not, be an issue. When reserving online, we thought River front sites were available. At check in, we found there are no motor home slots at all. We had included that request in the notes but no one bothered to let us know. They just took our money and would not likely have refunded it if we were unhappy. The WiFi is awful. In four days we never managed to get a good connection. We even went into their hotspot area which did not help at all. I heard the same comments from three other campers. When we asked about it, the lady in the office looked at her computer and said, "it is working fine here, must be OK". Finally, the place was quiet at night but, during the day, neighbors felt the need to serenade us with their choices of music plus the poolside music could be heard. Country on one side and Classic Elvis on the other. It is difficult to sing along to two tunes. The hosts frequently patrolled the area and it did not seem to disturb them. I would stay in the front area again, my wife would not want to return. That's the story, as I see it. We camped at North Pole Resorts in a Motorhome.

Nice campground. Enjoyed our campsite. Choice of wooded or open sunshine sites. Level and well maintained. Clean bathroom/showers; although, no heat at this time and timed showers with no temp control. Office staff had moments of nice contrasting the norm of unfriendly/indifferent/ unhelpful. Would have been a 10 except for office staff attitude. We camped at North Pole Resorts in a Motorhome.

We stayed in the section along the river. The campground is well maintained and has a separate section for tents. The sites are pretty tight. However, they were assigning them on an every other one basis because there was not that much demand. There is a lot to do in the area and the drive up Whiteface Mountain should not be missed if the weather is clear. The Ausable River is dammed at this location which provides for an enjoyable canoe or kayak outing. We would stay here again if in the area We camped at North Pole Resorts in a Fifth Wheel.

This park has two sections - the resort area and the 100 acre woods. Both areas are very nice. The woods area has sites that are a little more secluded but both are situated very well to fit even the largest rig. The power is good, good Wi-Fi, extremely friendly and helpful staff and clean, clean, clean. Nice playground, pool, and pet walk. Meeting area for clubs. Mini golf and lots of other games are available. Nice store. This is one of the best run parks we have been to lately. We would stay here again and recommend it to all our friends.

This is a great location for many outdoor activities such as fishing, hiking and close to Lake Placid and the Olympic history there. The resort side of the campground has rather small sites and some are covered with gravel, some are dirt only. The bathrooms were the cleanest we've seen; however, the "lower" and "upper" baths (located underneath the motel area are not handicap accessible at all. There is mini golf and a game room and an adult room with puzzles and a TV. Grounds staff were very friendly and capable and helped us with our electrical issues. I believe the utility company was called to resolve the problem. There are 2 pools on the property, as well and a great playground for the younger children. We would stay here again just because there are so many things to do at the campground or within 20 miles or so. But, be aware of the limitations if one needs accessible access. We camped at North Pole Resorts in a Motorhome.

Very nice spacious sites in the 100 acre woods. We were escorted to our site and were impressed right off the bat by how level the site was. We set up just before a horrendous electrical storm and because of all the tall trees we were very protected. It is very convenient to Lake Placid and Whiteface. I was, however, disappointed that because we were 4 adults instead of a family of 4 we had to pay $16 extra. We will definitely return. We camped at North Pole Resorts in a Fifth Wheel.
