Buck Pond Campground, Onchiota, New York

Date of Stay: June, 2019 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

This is a small Adirondack campground that has minimal services. All sites are Dry Camping. The roads to the sites can be tight and some of the sites can be difficult to get a camper into. Water is provided by a limited number of spigots near the bath houses. The bath houses contain one shower which was dated but clean and functional. The dump station is located near the boat launch and nearly inaccessible. We did not use it. There is no camp store - so no ice, firewood or items for sale. There is a small store near the entrance that provides ice and firewood for sale. The staff keeps the campground clean and well maintained, but lacking in customer service skills compared to other NYS campgrounds where the staff is highly engaging and customer oriented. The best attraction this campground has is the access to Pond and Lake Kuskaqua for kayaking, fishing, wildlife. It is nature at its best. If you like Dry Camping with little to no services, this is the place to camp. We camped at Buck Pond Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Meacham Lake State Park, Paul Smiths, New York

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

This park is prime example of camping in the Adirondacks, most sites are wooded and have fire rings and picnic tables. There are no lots with electric, water, or sewer. Some sites are available on Meecham Lake. Most sites are level with a mix of sand and grass. Our particular lot was located up near the entrance and was very quiet and a very private site. This site is a pull in- pull out site. Firewood and Ice are available. Generators are allowed at certain times only. We camped at Meacham Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is in a wilderness area with many accesses to water and hikes. Malone NY is about 25 minutes north with access to shopping, and camper supplies.

Cumberland Bay State Park, Plattsburgh, New York

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

We stay at CBST just after Labor day. We stayed on site #49 - Lake view - Beach across road - Electric hook-up. The site was level and sandy. This being a corner lot, we could arrange the camper for a lake view. The new camping center included new showers, laundry - very clean and well kept. Customer service was excellent. This is a great family location. I am sure it is very busy in the summer, but after labor day it was very comfortable. We camped at Cumberland Bay State Park in a Travel Trailer.
