State Park so no hookups. Our site was spacious and located at the end of a side road which was cool and quiet, but was next to a closed gate leading to the nature center. No traffic except the occasional state worker. We were also located next to some swings and a vollyball area which the kids enjoyed. Our site was shady which was nice in the hot sun but horrible for bugs and our awning got ruined from the trees dropping their seed pods. There was this odd creek/drainage system there that started beside our site and ran under all the neighboring sites via large black pipes and drainage ditches. It smelt bad and was a habitat for bugs!! Lots and lots of bugs!! Being located where we were, though, meant we were left alone which we like. The lake was neat, though we stayed before it officially opened so I think that helped the quietness. - Fab4

This campground is very nice located 18 miles southwest of Albany with 121 sites located in three loops. No services but many of the campsites are a good size located in a forest with a few having lake views. The bottom loops seem to be quieter than the beach loop sites 1 -52. Our site was a good size located in the beach loop with a picnic table and a huge fire pit. Nice site. Since we came in on Memorial Day and it seemed to have been full for the weekend there was a long line for the dump station and a lot of campers in the park. The beach is not always open during the week. The restrooms were clean considering this was Memorial Weekend. The park has the beach, nature center, basketball court, horseshoe pit , playground, volleyball and picnic sites. The check-in girl was very nice especially since she was overwhelmed with all the campers trying to leave, day trippers coming in for the beach and campers looking for sites. The problem at this state park is that it is full on weekends and not many during the week but then they let a number of people or groups come for the day. There are a number of picnic tables for these groups or families to use but some try to come in the beach loop and use the campsites. I will say the workers did patrol frequently and very nicely tried to move some of these groups out. There is a shortage of parking for the number that they allow in so the beach loop had cars parked along the campsite road which can cause a problem. We would have had a problem getting our RV out of our site. Many of the groups were loud and they are allowed to stay to 10 at night. I know this was Memorial Day, so I have to make an exception but my rating of the beauty of the park, facilities, sites, and staff would have been a 8 with no services. Since they let to many people in for the daily beach pass with not enough parking, I will rate the park lower. Monday night there were only a few of us in the park overnight. - gsnakehill

My wife and I took our trailer here for our very first maiden trip. The sites were flat, clean and nicely wooded. This park is a nice family park that has a nice beach area and boat launch. - bigjimbo78

Check in was fast and easy. Water & Electric worked great. Sewer was too far away, not enough hose (30 ft), my fault. Very nice park with lots of activities. Mostly seasonal resident with a few open spaces. Has a nice lake, swimming pool, restaurant, horseshoes, etc. DO NOT FOLLOW GPS, be sure to get instructions on how to get there. Roads from I-90 to park are very nice, interior roads are very, very rough, 5 mph limit and that's too fast . Site was level with nice rock drive and nice green grass, picnic table and fire pit. No Cable or WiFi. - Gladabout

Major complaint is they put our 30 foot travel trailer in a 16 foot wide campsite. The utility hookups were unsatisfactory, loose electric box, leaky faucet, rusty water from faucet and sewer connection up hill from tank drain. Seasonal travel trailer was less than 12 inches from our travel trailer. Seasonal trailer on opposite side had their children's toys, trash cans and two large gas grills right at our picnic table. Sewer up hill - made it hard to empty travel trailer. Our fire ring was unusable due to being to close to our travel trailer and no where else to put it. Could not tell you who the owners were. Never saw them. The only good thing was a charity car show held on Saturday. Did not feel welcomed there. We will look for other places if travel in this area again. - KMCOtisfield

The park is mostly seasonal campers and was very muddy with all the rain. Sites are gravel and pretty level. Back in site with no utilities issues. Parking in the front of coach in the mud. Narrow roads and had to move car so another Motorhome could back into their site across from us. Steep entrance but doable. Must show current rabies vaccinations. Would not stay here again. Office was nice about changing our site when we accidentally set up in the wrong one. - Vicki K

On the banks of the Mohawk River, a nice surrounding. Easily accessible back-in site. - grandflic

This is a clean, pretty little park on a river, but it is adjacent to a very busy railroad track and there is nearly constant train noise day and night. The approach to the park is across the tracks and a little bit of tight turn. It is convenient to I-90 and services in Glenville/Schenectady. Restrooms and laundry were okay, but need some work. If you are sensitive to noise we'd advise against staying here. It rained while we were there, but there was little mud or standing water. - Breeze32tx

On this trip actually my favorite campground because we were right on the Mohawk River (I love water). I liked the layout of the campground as everyone was in a circle so really only the back end of vehicles were close to each other. - BoaterJan

Lovely campground and well maintained in a park-like setting. Beautiful pond with gazebo and two cascading waterfalls on site. Enclosed pavilion is centrally located which hosts covered dish suppers on all holiday weekends during the season. Waterfalls Campsite is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy nature. The owners/hosts will make you feel welcome and they operate this great campground with attention to every detail. If there was a better rating than 10, this campground certainly deserves it. It is definitely a 10++ for all campers and RV'ers alike. Enjoy! - tararose51

Basic overnight park off I-88. Narrow road within the park with some low hanging trees. Road noise. Verizon MiFi okay, but Verizon cell service was limited. Good OTA television reception. Park is overpriced at $30. - Dave51

This is a small, quaint campground off NY7 and adjacent to I-88. The owner wasn't there at check-in but a sign directed us to pick an open spot. Being mid-October, there were plenty to chose from. While you're mainly in a grass field with seasonals occupying the outside sites, the weekenders like us had level pull-thru, shaded sites. The owner stopped by to welcome us, asked if we needed anything, and suggested sites to see and a place to eat (Gibby's, 5 mi east and recommended). He checked on us daily at 6:30pm; nice touch! The only thing from giving this a 10 is the road noise from I-88, which isn't a big deal. We will camp here again. - theheils

Very nice family owned campground. Owner was not there when we checked in, but a note on the door told us to pick a site, which we did. Lots of green grass and trees. Site was level. Owner checked in on us later in the day. Very nice and helpful. We would definitely stay here again. - cneeka

Pretty easy to find. Nice layout for travelers, long pads, level, even though on a hillside. Many seasonals, but all clean and well kept. Plenty of space between sites. Quiet, clean, nice people. Awesome views from hilltop when driving in or out. New modern very clean showers at lower end. Worth the walk. Recommend for those traveling through. Looked like they had a lot of weekend activities for the seasonals, and nice playground for kids. - Andywriter

Nice little gem of a campground. Lot's of room for the kids to play. Big sites, clean rest rooms and showers. Nice little pool. Close enough to Cobleskill, yet far enough away to enjoy really quiet nights. i can't write anything bad. Only thing missing is the sewer hook ups. They do have a dump station, but long stays here would become arduous for full timers like us. Love the place though and are returning. - naknak

The park is well kept and easy to navigate. We were only here overnight so didnt use any amenities. Sites are very long, will fit any rig, but VERY unlevel side to side. Website says Escapee discount but only M-W. - Soos

Very nice campground. Owners and staff friendly and helpful. Check in was fast with escort to site. Be sure to follow directions and not the GPS going to the Campground. We had a 30 amp & water site. Dump stations and propane on site. The site was level and utilities worked as they should. Verizon signal was very good. Wifi worked great most of the time. Did not use showers or restrooms. Road from Interstate to the campground entrance could use the trees trimmed. - Gladabout

This park is very unique. Everyone here including the staff and all the campers are nothing short of amazing. The staff are very friendly, the park is so pristine and beautiful, well manicured sites. We first came here by accident, only now we love it and it's our favorite campground. I have never stayed at a more friendly campground. Rules are inforced to make sure everyone has a great time. If you see a negative review, it's likely they created their own unhappiness. We will be coming back whenever we can. Yes it's that good. Super kid and family oriented. The new pool is great - just one more added feature to an already great place. - The podesvas

I wish I could give this place a good review. The view from the campground is picturesque and the fishing and frog catching are great for the kids however, the owners run the campground like a boot camp. There are extra fees charged for everything! The beach at the POND is overgrown with algae and small. The pavilion is small and no one seems to use it. Although the campsite was full, no one used any of the amenities. The store was always locked and you had to ring a doorbell and wait for someone to come. The owners were friendly on occasion but also rude and demanding at other times. To say they are strict would be an understatement. I have camped for many years and never experienced a more uncomfortable atmosphere. If bringing firewood make sure to bring a certificate of sale. It is STRONGLY enforced! - Trinda Sweeney

We stayed here on our encounter to Maine and on the return trip as well. It's a nice park and relatively easy to get to from Interstate 90 at least with a Class C. The campsites are relatively secluded from each other. The two issues we had were some of the water faucets were not working and there were no trash disposal bins that we could find. There are no sewer hookups but they have a dump station with a trash bin but it is a distance from the camping area. TV reception was very good as you are just a few miles from Albany. Some sites were pull through. There is a boat ramp at the park which puts you on the Hudson River. We found the park receptionist very helpful. - Darla-n-Duane

This state park offers very large, very private, beautifully treed sites. The entire park is very clean and attractively maintained. The hiking/biking trails are maintained . There are tent pavilions away from the campsites that are used as outside venues for events and there is a boat launch ramp. We will definitely return whenever passing through that area. - Flyingcloud25fb

Nice park on a peninsula next to the Hudson River. Two campground loops, both have plenty of trees. Sites range from mostly sunny to mostly shaded, and they are level. New bathrooms are clean and bright. Push button showers. There are some walking paths, including one along the river adjacent to the boat launch. Pavilions and a playground are in this area. The park is relatively small given the size of the “island”. Most of the land is used to deposit material from dredging the river. - DebJ

Large RV park with all of the sites on grass. Many of the sites will require leveling. Interior roads are gravel and would benefit from additional gravel and leveling. Mostly seasonal campers, many with added structures in varying condition. We had a pull through site in a grass field which was very wet. RV Park in kept in decent shape with grass cut and trees trimmed. Not much to do here but suitable as a quick stop or if you are visiting family in the area. - linnemj

Site size very nice, site 1 thru 31 have 30 amp connection 32 and above will need adapter to standard home plug.
Power and water connections are at the back of the site and are "shared" between two sites, extra length of water hose and power may be needed to reach connection.
No sewer connection at site, "honey" wagon service available $10 per pump out.
Walking around 80 to 90% of sites are seasonal, grading of sites are needed in the area of the playground and 7 acre field, saw one that had to put in 12 to 18 inches of blocks to get level on a small TT, this only for 5 or 6 sites.
There is enough room to put ones trailer or rig parallel to the road.
Wireless service is good (VZ), no Wi-Fi.
For a holiday weekend nose level was better than expected.
Spacing is good, you will not feel that you are encroaching on the next site.
Will be coming back. - Ramcharger459

Stayed at Max V. Shaul State Park one night as a base for discovering the Schoharie Valley area. This park has two new comfort stations (rest room and showers) and water spigots to fill your water tank. No dump station available. All sites have a fire ring and picnic table. There are a number of sites that will accommodate larger vehicles and we had no problem with our 30 foot travel trailer and pickup both fitting in site 028. The lower sites can be noisy with the trucks engine breaking during the day but the park was very quiet overnight. If you want to go to the hill top sites and have a larger rig I would look at site 021. We visited Blenheim Covered Bridge, Shaul's Farm Market, and Hiked Vroman's Nose. If you are in the area, which is beautiful, take the time and energy to hike to the top of Vroman's Nose to received a spectacular view of the Schoharie Valley. I also want to mention that Max V. Shaul, a local farmer, donated the land for this SP and after his death the name was changed from Towpath Mountain State Park to Max V. Shaul State Park. The staff at this SP were very informative and helpful with our successful stay. - M Warner

This State Park is nice. The bathrooms were clean, but the men's bathroom smelled. We were infested with caterpillars (300 or 400 on our camper). I was told this happens once every ten years. Their constant droppings sounded like rain. Most campers left. The sites are nice and I would stay again. - steveo
