The campground was convenient for its proximity to Cooperstown, which is where the National Baseball Hall of Fame is located. We stayed in a full service site. Cable and Internet were fine. There is a large grassy area for recreation and the pond area is scenic. Duck families and an occasional deer. However,we were disappointed overall . The petting zoo was not functioning and looked very neglected. The miniature golf course was in extreme disrepair. The one paddle boat was not maintained, the interior very dirty. The pool which is across the street was very murky and full of pine needles. There were none of the activities advertised. The arcade had poor lighting and there was a strong odor from the animal area that was next to it. The owners are new and were friendly but the campground should not have been opened this season due to the many things that had to be repaired or maintained. We felt it was unfair to pay full rates when few of the amenities were available. We would not return to this campground. We camped here in a Motorhome.
After reading the other reviews, I made the reservations with unease. The campground was muddy but it had rained (poured) for days. The bathhouses, while very rustic, were very clean. But I was not expecting Fort Wilderness for $35.00 a night. When we arrived the campsite we were suppose to have was so muddy they gave us a different site. We took up 3 sites. They pulled up signs and helped us back it in. While we were there my husband became ill and needed to go to ER. They called ahead to see the wait time and gave me great directions. We needed gas for the camper (it was very cold that weekend). They went to our camper, got the tank, filled it and hooked it back to camper. They went out of there way for us. We would go back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is very basic. Sites 1-6 are shared power and water, if you get the odd site you will need extensions to reach connections, sewer is on the correct side for each site. WiFi was low being that the general store was the base and not that far away, adding a out door antenna would help that. The site area needed a mowing but other wise was level with limited blocking needed. If sewer hook up is not needed, sites 30a/b, 84-88 are shaded. If you have a longer trailer you should go to sites 38-43. VZ and other wireless carriers at one or two bars. The rest room was clean and basic, had an out house feel to it. If dry camping or tenting: 23-26 are in a low area and run the risk of getting flooded out if it rains hard. Sites 22, 23, 27 and the rest in that loop are on a high point or have good drainage if it rains. The play ground(s) are very basic. The pony ride is a one trip only around and no seconds. The hayride goes for a 30-45 minute trip around the camps sites then out on a nature trail and back. The rec hall is in a old barn. The mini-golf is in need of major work, not really usable. I picked this campground for being pet friendly to larger dogs (Rotti). I never saw the pool, others in our group did and said it needed a good cleaning. I would look elsewhere if in the area again, but would not write this campground off. It's just at the bottom of my list. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is an excellent campground for tent campers. The tent area is heavily wooded and the sites large, most having nice views. The tent area couldn't be better. The area for trailers and campers with electric, water and sewer was very limited (only 6 sites) and those sites are very close together. Trailers face each other in that area (or bring long water hoses) so there is no privacy. They are shaded. Only six sites have sewer so reserve them early. When our neighbor let down his awning it was a few inches from our shade. The WiFi, included in the price of the site, was spotty at best and often not available. Cable TV was carried about 13 channels. The toilets and showers are extremely rustic. One section of this campground has permanent campers, renters and seasonals. The pool is across the road in a Mobile Home park which seemed to be part of the campground. There was some kind of rustic farm/petting zoo also connected to this campground. We walked trough it and were saddened to see how small most of the pens were. In my opinion it should be done away with or modernized, giving the animals and poultry enough space to live comfortable lives. The ponds on the property were beautiful with picnic benches and shade. Although this seemed to be a good place for children, we saw few of them there. The owner and employees were friendly and helpful and there is a camp store. It's convenient to Cooperstown and stores. We would not stay there again simply because the sites with sewers are too small, too narrow and the WiFi unreliable. If we were tent campers we wouldn't stay anywhere else.
