Lake George Escape Campground, Diamond Point, New York

Date of Stay: August, 2005 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

My wife and I, and our 2 kids, stayed here for a week in a pop-up camper in August 2005. I've camped for many, many years, and now with kids of my own, I found the campground to be one of the best to stay at. One of the best things to note is that the main bathrooms and showers were absolutely immaculate. Hats of to the cleaning crew. Many of the staff members are campers as well, so they know what a camper expects, and as a result, we found them to be very friendly. The camp store is top of the line with anything you want available at a reasonable price. Cafe Alfresco also had great food and drinks available if you didn't feel like making your own. The campground was well maintained, and the sites were adequate in size, without you feeling crowded in. There were many roomy sites on the river. Don't expect a lake on-site, as the other waterfront sites are on a pond, with no swimming. The actual "Lake George" lake is about a 15 minute ride, with a few places to go to para-sail or to rent a boat. Additionally, we had season passes for Six Flags, and they were valid for a day of fun at The Great Escape amusement park, which is also a quick ride away. On-site, there were plenty of activities for the kids, though at an additional cost, some a bit pricy; mining for gems/fossils ($), stuffed animal making ($), playground, 2 pools, game room ($), bingo ($), and pedal cars ($). We all really liked the pedal cars, but the half hour rental went too fast to even make a full loop around the campground, making a bit expensive. Swimming was mainly at the pool. The river was too low at the time we went. In all, a great campground and one we'll be sure to return to. We camped at Lake George Escape Campground in a Tent Trailer.
