We were disappointed to find 90% of the park was seasonal sites that looked more like full summer places. Some were well kept, others well.... (there should be a standard). We were sooo close to our neighbors. The staff was nice and helpful. We rented a paddle boat and was disappointed it was dirty and made crazy noises. 1 of the 2 pools was nice but found it odd there were no bathrooms. Adjacent to the pool. We had to remove a large amount of geese droppings which should had been clear before we came. We left early because of the intense amount of bugs. The 2 pond/lakes were as described. Will not return. - ourrvfor2

Laundry was good. Site was a mud hole. Office staff was not very helpful. We paid more than we ever have and received less value than ever before. - mtnloverme

The bathrooms/showers were dirty. We were promised 50amp service & received a site with 30amp. The sites were suppose to be pull-thru's, but the seasonal campers park their cars in front of the pull-thru sites blocking the exit. This is a dog friendly park, however, at the entrance of this campground they keep a dog tied to a tree. Poor dog was tied there day and night on a short leash for the entire time we camped. - Ibis

No frills, just a great place. Rate shown is Passport America. Managers are great and helpful and keep the area well maintained. Has limited number sites for short term use. We would stay again. - kick

Although this location is mostly permanent mobile homes, we always look forward to coming back to visit. Easy big-rig parking and setup (this is our third time here in 3 years), only 10 minutes from Saratoga Springs, in a nice quiet area. Not a destination park, no pool, playground, etc., but friendly, easy, convenient and flat. I wish we had planned to spend more time here this year. I'm not sure how many RV sites they have, and they don't take reservations. - melissabrvs

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

Very nice campground for a weekend stay. We had a nice shaded spot. Would stay again; very pleasant atmosphere. Owners very helpful and courteous. - SASSY01

This park is pretty. The spaces are very spacious and private. The campground is very wooded and the sites are very shaded. The biggest problem is the dirt. There is nothing but dirt. No gravel in the sites and you track a lot of dirt in the camper. There is very little grass as it is in the woods. The bathrooms are OK, but they have pay showers, I would rather pay a couple extra buck a night than to have to worry about pay showers. The exit was a major pothole city that was in need of major repair. This campground has a lot of potential with the addition of some gravel pads in the sites to reduce mud and dirt. - wesmac68

I have read the previous reviews over the last 5 years and can say that absolutely nothing has changed at this campground. No escort to remote site. Roads are horribly potholed, too narrow for large rigs and poorly maintained overall. WiFi non existent at sites. Verizon went out a few times in 3 days. Cable tv all snowy and poor reception. The site we had was large enough and the surrounding campers quiet. 99% Seasonal. Only 8 miles from Saratoga but very remote and rustic. Would not stay here again. Campground has potential but owners appear to take no pride in what they have. - Camping Lady18

We found this park to be less than satisfactory. The dirt road to the sites are very narrow and filled with pot holes, ruts and rocks. The office is open very limited hours and some days not at all. Difficult to have mail delivered since it is questionable when you would being to pick it up. No escort to your site, really very little assistance with anything. You are pretty much on your own. Weak wi-fi, no Verizon cell service. We traveled in a 45' motor home which was extremely difficult to maneuver to our site. Proximity to Saratoga is not a quick trip in for any supplies, shopping, etc. - Eagle2013

Have stayed here before. No sewer hookup and dump station was overflowing. Management could care less. Pool was filthy. Showers were clean. No working pedal boats. Snake bar never open. Store closed most of time. - wino

They were in the process of closing for the season. Took our money and then were thinking of shutting off the water in baths. Site was adequate. Managers attitude wasn't very friendly. Dump station is very poor set up. Was not impressed for something called a resort. - russ1102

We have camped here every summer since 2008 and have gotten to know everyone that is here. This is an excellent park that is improving every year. A previous post stated that it is a membership park which is incorrect. It is a public park that allows members from it's sister park to camp if space is available for a limited number of them. The owners live locally within 20 miles of the park and are often seen at the park during the week. When the park is closed for the winter, reservations are made through an office in Michigan, during the open season, reservations are made at the park. ( FYI- Cabin # 6 has a bed, a futon and a loft for sleeping bags/ air mattresses) We have rented them for visiting family members. As far as I am aware, 'Michigan" only handles membership questions/issues, all other problems are handled quickly by the staff. We have never had any problem with the park other than no sewer at the sites. They have an inconvenient pump wagon but a new sewer system is supposed to be in place next summer. They have lots of stuff for kids to do on holiday weekends and it is really close to the horse track. Great place, you should try it! - ponti

Sites are first come, so we drove around the upper loop and checked electric, which I found had low voltage. Drove down to the loop nearer the lake and the voltage was more in the green. We found a nice level, wide site in the lower level. The water quality is good. All sites are W/E. Website says they have cable, but they don't. There are a lot of OTA antenna stations. Verizon coverage not very good, but acceptable. They have a nice pool, playgrounds and a trail around the lake to walk. Beware the mosquitos and biting flies. - Kerch Family

Stayed here using our Coast to Coast and was surprised that they charged an additional $10.00 nightly for the campsite. Had 30 amp and water but no sewer available so not sure why we had to pay extra. Sites were okay but nothing special. Will not stay here in the future. - Dedra C

PROS: Nature, being from FL the tall pines and hemlocks were beautiful CONS: Office: Called in reservation, charged the our entire stay, when we arrived there was no record and staff asked how we wanted to pay, I had to tell her the amount. Needed WiFi. She said it was not working. During reservation ask for full hookup, there is NO sewer at any site. Store: dark, low stock. The ice was kept in an old ice cream freezer. The ice was melting in the cooler. When I pried one loose, it was a total block of ice. Site: We had our choice, we choose the best. All, including our own were not level. (Would comment on all the mud, but no one can help if it rains a lot, but it was muddy). Showers: Ugh, Three stalls. One had a hole poked through so I thought I wonder if someone can view me. Walked around the back and the outside wall was missing from 4 feet down, exposing the 3 fiberglass showers stalls. Probably to fix a problem, but it was evident the backs had been exposed for awhile. Washers: Room dirty, had 4 washers, 4 dryers and only 1 each worked. Dump Station: OK but on a semi circle so positioning is awkward. Comment: I am not kidding when I say the photographer who took pictures of the place needs to get a bonus! All those items exist but they must have staged and scrubbed everything for the shoot. They had to be taken when it opened. I believe this may have been a good place when it opened, but there has been no upkeep, it is falling apart. Recommend: No, but if you like roughing it in a tent it is the place for you. There is a sister site at Lake George, NY, I do not know if is like this place. I will not return. I do not see myself as a complainer; camping is camping, but the ads and staff are not to be believed. It is not a Resort as the ad states, but we don't look for resorts, but we do look for a campsite that are trying to get it right; this one fails. - oliver quibble

The owners really are the nicest folks you could meet. FHU's & long pull through sites, however the gravel sites are far from level, our rear tires were 3" off the ground. The park is quiet, & way off the beaten path, 15 miles to town. Bath/showers are kept clean but are a bit beaten. Not a lot to do here in the campground. - rvrrat520

The main campground is a little sparse for vegetation. We stayed two nights and got to stay in the seasonal area (most of their seasonal guests had left for the winter), which was tucked away in the trees. Very nice hiking. Looks like there is a group area that can be used by a large group such as boy scouts. We felt very comfortable and safe at this park. - FloridaWanderers

The family that owns the campground are the friendliest people you'll ever meet. It is a small campground, but it is everything the website claims. It is quiet and peaceful, with a nice hiking trail. The only bad thing i could say is the gnats were heavy the weekend we stayed there, but that comes with the territory. We've stayed there before, and would stay there again as it is close to home when we can only get away for a short stay. - 2006F-150

This looks like an older campground. Hookups are aged; cable connection was so blurry that we used our antenna. WiFi was about the same so we used our personal hotspot. Luckily we were only here for a week. Sites are very close and roads were barely navigable, dirt and filled with potholes. AB Corporation should be ashamed. - wallysmom

This is our 3rd time staying here in the last 11 years for our annual family reunion. This year, the campground has improved. They have a new waterpark & 2 large swimming pools, which made all ages happy. It was Christmas in July weekend & the staff seemed to have it under control with such a large crowd. In the past we had issues with rude staff & rude seasonals, but not this year. We stayed in 2 full RV sites (267/268). 267 was nice and big, no issues. 268 was uneven; we needed alot of leveling blocks. We also rented a cabin & 3 rental RVs. The cabin(286) was great. However, the Rental RVs(287,288,289) which we also rented the last time we stayed, are showing their age & have some maintenance issues. It is a very large campground & we went on a busy weekend. Overall I think the staff did a good job & campground is great for family gatherings. - easycamper

We have been seasonal for 4 years and this is the last year for us. To call this a camping resort is bazaar. When it rains many sites flood along with the crater size potholes and when it's dry out, the dust is over whelming and choking. This season we have to listen to the construction vehicles all day long. I can not in all reality recommend this park to any campers. We paid $3600. for the season going to $3900. in 2018. - Kathy Coffey

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

I'm not to comment too much on this place. I will not stay here again. Had to move twice to get a level spot. They are not setup for over night visitors. Mainly a get-a-way for the weekend city folks. Way over priced for what you get. - Dennis D

We had to make last minute reservations for the weekend leading up to Wed, July 4th. The manager, Cricket found us a 30 amp site when we called on Thursday. When we arrived on Friday, she was able to secure us a 50 amp site which was very good since temperatures were in the mid 90's all weekend. The manager & staff were very nice to us. The folks Camping were very courteous to each other & even though many sites had multiple vehicles there were no loud parties. Last of all, the power stayed at 115 volts plus all weekend even though everyone was using their AC. I would definitely camp there again. - USA in a Chevrolet

My comments below from 2016 hold true through the 2017 season as well. Several more of the bad apples have either left or been evicted (as recently as today 8/3/17). Additionally, this year the campground has made so many improvements! The water system was completely overhauled, electric services upgraded, septics have all been located and consistently maintained, and improvements to facilities such as the volleyball court. The improvements continue daily! The goal of family friendly, quiet and respectful campers, and all around beauty is coming together! (2016) Keep in mind, most of the bad reviews are coming from either evicted or disgruntled seasonals after finally being held to the rules. This campground has improved SIGNIFICANTLY since we came for our first tour in 2014. We began our seasonal residency here in 2015, are here again for the 2016 season, and just signed up for the 2017 season. The improvements made so far are impressive, and the remaining items are being worked on. This place was in bankruptcy for many years before the new management company took over in 2015. They are doing the best they can with what they were given. The new site manager this year, was given the task of putting the rules in place and finally enforcing them. Some of the seasonals didn't like that, as they were the proverbial inmates running the asylum before. Evictions were made and the place has been heaven since! Thank you for all your hard work! - Chris and Monica
