Peaceful Valley Campsite, Shinhopple, New York

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

I've been camping for over 30 years & haven't seen a business in such a disorganized mess. Website is horrible; can't pay or reserve a site. Send check thru the mail. I found out I was camping when they cashed my check a month later. I reserved a cottage & 2 FULL hookup sites. Price on webpage is different to actual. The owner couldn't care less. I checked in for my RV site - no site# or map. He pointed to another customer buying ice & said 'you're near him follow him back to his site'. When my friend checked in the 2nd RV he was told pick ANY site at river. When he picked next to me, another camper said they were 'saving' it & the owner knows. The owner was called & came down, he forgot about the 'saving' site & told my friend to move his camper to another site. He THEN informed me, I had to share MY sewer with another camper. I was PAYING for full hookup. My family checked into the cottage it had mouse droppings inside. They were given glue traps & caught a mouse. Also a propane gas leak in bath. Another couple renting a small cabin had mouse droppings on the sheets. they also caught a mouse. If you pay for lodging it should be mice free! NO family activities. NO pool. Then the power went out. For 2 days of the 3 day weekend. NO communication. He never came around to see if anyone needed anything. No power = No water. We used the cottage for showers/toilet. When power came back, late on last night, nothing left to do except sleep. Morning came, all I wanted was to dump my tanks & leave. After packing, I opened the black. In 5 seconds sludge started to bubble from the ground. It was backed up. I didn't use the sewer the whole weekend we used the cottage bathroom. I found the owner. Instead of helping, he said to dump the crap on ground & he'll deal with it later. I was so disgusted I payed for 3 days full hook ups & not having any. He could care less & gave me $10. I went back & dumped my crap on site & smiled at the thought of him cleaning it up & paying me $10. We camped at Peaceful Valley Campsite in a Travel Trailer.

Don't camp here if you expect cherry helpful people. If you want to be left alone to hunt, fish & get drunk; then you should be ok. If renting cabins/cottages must deal with rodents.

Foxwood Family Campground, East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

I would NOT recommend this place for anyone camping with families. Broken down trailers litter the landscape. Roads are in a poor state of repair. Electric 30 amp service was not available when checked in & electric lines were run above ground from site to site just to hook us up. Maintenance man ran over sewer caps when mowing grass so sewer connections were NOT capped. They added a new elbow after a complaint, but didn't secure it to pipe. So gray/black water leaked onto ground where the above ground 30 amp electric lines were! I told the staff about it but they just shrugged & said 'OK'. Never fixed it. When I asked why wasn't any of this done BEFORE we arrived, they said "Memorial day just kinda snuck up on us this year". Really??? Second the staff. Rules are non-existent at this campground. Everyone speeds from cars to golf carts & even though one seasonal put up a sign to remind everyone of the speed limit, no one cared & the seasonals are the worst offenders. Dogs friendly is one thing but to allow campers' dogs to run free is just a hazard. Yes, everyone thinks their dog is OK, but incidents happen. And just from a liability standpoint, the leash rule should be enforced. Oh, & people who don't leash their dogs, also don't pick up their poop either. Drinking & camping has always gone together, but at family campgrounds, people drink only at their campsites. This place, drinking & driving golf carts is a sport. Now the kicker, there is a 'weed' dealer living as a seasonal on top of the hill. He advertises right at his campsite with his web address posted on his car. Not only do seasonals drive to his site & buy, but outside customers also come into campground. This is well known to the staff & all seasonals. Overall, if you are looking to party & don't care about living conditions then this is for you. But if you family camp with children, this is NOT the place. Someone will get hurt here. We camped at Foxwood Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Niagara Falls North / Lewiston KOA, Lewiston, New York

Date of Stay: August, 2010 - $58.00
Overall Rating:

The best feature of this campsite is the location. It is north of the Falls so there was no traffic. We did not spend much time at the campsite; therefore we did not utilize all the activities. Very friendly and helpful staff, clean bathrooms and level site. We did swim in the pool which was in okay condition. It could use a little TLC. We camped at Niagara Falls North / Lewiston KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Adirondack Adventure Resort of Saratoga, Greenfield Center, New York

Date of Stay: July, 2010 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

This is a private members campground which allows non-members to camp if sites are available. There are actually two campgrounds with this name (this one in Saratoga and another one near Lake George). The members work in the campground, but the owners live in Michigan. This was the only problem I had with the campground, because if anything went wrong, the workers response was always "call Michigan". I booked a full-hook up site and when I arrived they told me that the Saratoga campground doesn't have full-hook ups. My in-laws booked a 1 room cabin, which was supposed to have a bed and a bunk bed. When they arrived the cabin#6 had only a futon and a bunk bed. Their response to both complaints was to "call Michigan". Other than that, the campground was beautiful. Our camp sites#77 & 79 overlooking the lake was picturesque. There was excellent fishing in the lake. The grounds were well kept; the bathroom/showers were clean and the workers/members were friendly and helpful. I would return and definitely stay on the lake. We camped at Adirondack Adventure Resort of Saratoga in a Travel Trailer.

Lakeside Campground, Windsor, New York

Date of Stay: May, 2010 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

This is an old style campground, much like the way I remember camping when I started camping 25 years ago. No cookie cutter sites, that all look alike. There's a winding road around the lake, and the sites put in between the trees around the lake. If you like relaxing and fishing this is a good campground for you. I didn't like the 'catch and eat' fishing policy, because it's not a huge lake. There isn't much activities for kids or a pool. (My daughter wouldn't go swimming in the lake after she saw us fishing in the same spot). The owners were friendly; they walked around and visited each site to say hello. I think big rigs would have a problem here, because of narrow roads and overhang branches, but for us that added to the seclusion. We enjoyed this retro-campground, but I think I have been spoiled with the modern amenities. However I would return. We camped at Lakeside Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Lazy River, Gardiner, New York

Date of Stay: October, 2009 - $70.00
Overall Rating:

This is a well maintained campground and we camp there annually every Columbus Day. It has a lot to offer for families and the Halloween weekend was a blast. However, the 2 reasons I can't give a higher rating is the high holiday rate and their reservation policy, because each year it changes. We used to reserve the same sites each year, if we booked them before we checked out. This year, other campers we able to reserve our sites without giving us the option. When asked why the change in policy, the owners insisted it was always that way, and it did not matter that we've been camping there for years. It seemed that they did not appreciate their loyal customers. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Lazy River in a Travel Trailer.

Tip Tam Camping Resort, Jackson, New Jersey

Date of Stay: August, 2009 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

This was a well maintained campground; however, it was an older campground. We stayed during the week; so I can't comment on the activities provided. It is in an excellent location for traveling to and from Six Flags Great Adventure. It is about 30 minutes from PT Pleasant Beach. The staff was friendly.

Adirondack Gateway RV Resort, Gansevoort, New York

Date of Stay: August, 2009 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

This was a well maintained campground with an extremely helpful, courteous staff. I reserved 3 cabins & 3 full hooks sites 7 months in advance for a family gathering. When I arrived upon check-in, I was told the sites we reserved became "seasonal" and we were placed in different parts of the campground. After protesting, the staff was able to move 2 sites closer to the cabins. However, site #A6 was more like a parking spot than a site. There was no room for a fire ring, and the entrance of my front door was on the road. All the river front sites were taken by the seasonals. If I was to return I would confirm my reservations and not book site#A6. We camped at Adirondack Gateway RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Tall Pines Campground, Canoeing & Country Store, Bainbridge, New York

Date of Stay: July, 2009 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

There are some good & poor aspects about this park. The staff are friendly & helpful. There is allot of outdoor fun: canoeing, tubing, and fishing. There are allot of kids activities, which are announced on a loud speaker, when they begin. This was a nice feature. The food; BBQ, pancakes, and pizza were all good. The ice cream pallor was the best amenity of the campground. The poor aspects were the bathhouse/restroom. It was horrendous. They were in the process of building a new one for 2010. The concrete around the pool needed upkeep. The building, which housed the office/rec hall/store looks like it may collapse. The sites on the hill are too close together. We stayed on the w/e sites by the river. These were good; however, all grass, no gravel. When it rained, it became muddy. I would return, but only after the renovations. We camped at Tall Pines Campground, Canoeing & Country Store in a Travel Trailer.

Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Birchwood Acres, Woodridge, New York

Date of Stay: June, 2009 - $65.00
Overall Rating:

There are alot of positive aspects for this campground: very clean restrooms/showers, crystal clear pool water, clean & tidy surroundings, alot of sport amenities, well stocked camp store, excellent snack cafe, alot of daily children activities, game room with air hockey/pool table/ping-pong table (rarely see all 3), modern playground equipment, excellent rental lodges/cabins, & a very helpful,courteous staff. However, there are 2 reasons why I can't give a 10 rating. First the HILL. The entire campground is a hill, and all the amenities are at the bottom. So everyone drives their cars to get to the pool, store, etc...There is a town road, which separates the campground by the pool, and the locals drive beyond the speed limit on it. Second, the RV sites lacked gravel. The rental RV sites had gravel, but the rest were grass/dirt. It rained for 1 day during my stay, and I spent the next day battling mud. Despite those 2 exceptions, it is a wonderful park & I will return. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Birchwood Acres in a Travel Trailer.

Ponderosa Pines Campgrounds, Honesdale, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: May, 2009 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

We camped there during Memorial Day weekend & the place was crowded. The staff was friendly. The pool was supposed to be heated, but it wasn't. If you are able to get a lakeside spot, you would have enough space; however, we did not. Our lots were small, and everyone was on top of one another. My in-laws stayed in the cabins, and they were in great condition. There were alot of activities for everyone. I would return only if I could book a lakeside spot.
