Most we have ever paid to stay at a campground. Bathrooms were open but none of the other amenities where open. I know this is off season, but they should at least have a rec hall you can use. We stayed on site 13. Very close to other sites. Water, Electric and Sewer connection were fine. It was very cold during our week there, so we disconnected our water at night. Their water lines are heated (that was a plus). Cable picture was on the fuzzy side and only 15 or so channels. Wifi was very good. Campground states they are about 60 miles from NYC but it takes about 2 hours to drive or take public transportation. Cost for public transpiration between parking, commuter rail and path trains was a little over $30 a person. Others might find rate reasonable during warmer months but for what they offer for the rate we would not stay again. The rate for 7 nights was $480. We would expect to pay about $100 less for what they offer. - Bergerde

Big rig friendly with level sites. Campsite is 3 miles from highway. No problem with our satellite and WiFi was great. No dog park but grass to walk dog. Good overnight stop. - Fulltimersrv

Overnight stop heading south toward Maryland. Many upgrades have been made to this campground since our stay in 2014. We were on the lower tier this time. FHU site was very level and all utilities worked well. Provided cable TV had limited channels and no PBS station. Provided WiFi worked exceptionally well. Bath house is a 3 set of WC, sink and shower. At 3 pm, the were very clean on inspection. Verizon data and voice was 1 bar. We would stay here again if we pass this way. - moderate camper

Very nice campground. We camp here 4-5 times a year. Price can't be beat. Showers and bathrooms leave a bit to be desired but the price is right so you can't complain. Staff is good and the grounds are beautiful. The lake is great, hiking trails are great and overall experience is awesome. Excellent bang for your buck. - Garymac28

We stayed 5 nights at this campground and the bathrooms were never cleaned once. There was fecal matter on the floor that was there all 5 days. The showers were filthy. The campsites were nice, but we were very disappointed with the condition of the bathrooms and showers. - Stolz

The extra fee for out of county residents is a bit much. The electricity kept fluttering and was not dependable to leave on during the night. Maps and any information were not available. We looked into the bath houses and it wasn't a hard decision NOT to use them. They are filthy and smell. We will drive on rather than stay here again. - Arizona Traveler

MWR facility located next to West Point. Sites have water and electricity. Water is disconnected usually when it first opens, and at the end of the season. Water available by the maintenance building. Sites are selected for you depending on the size of your RV. Sites by the Bathhouse are close together (usually motorhomes), the ones on the hill are more spacious and private(not as level). Some long-term RV's appear to be in the same sites, don't know if they are designated as such. One road (one-way) loops around the campground pond. The bathhouse has showers with plenty of hot water. Laundry room next door. The road leading into the campground is very steep and winding road, but not long. Just take your time. Larger rigs need to watch-out for overhanging branches, especially going pass the bathhouse up the hill. Good Verizon service. No WiFi at campgound. - JC0311

Very disappointed with this military CG! Not only did they raise the price by $8 a night because of "graduation week", the bathrooms needed updating and cleaning, the grass was overgrown, the "sites" were not well defined. No wifi. No sewer. No cable although over air got a few channels. Laundry room had both dryers "out of order" for 2 days as the man with the "keys" was off! All back-in sites! - CSM Carolyn

This place earns a 5 star for location; however, the sites were designed for 20' travel trailers. That being said, the sites are not well organized or standardized and definitely not very level. You never know which side the power pedestal and water hookup will be located. When it rains, puddles are everywhere because of the lack of even gravel. The laundry room and showers were dirty and didn't appear to be truly cleaned for months. And since there is no sewer hookup at the sites, you are forced to use the facilities. No WiFi and cell coverage is spotty, which is common for the area. If I were the Commander of USAG West Pont and the USMA, I would almost be embarrassed that this place is associated with the school that produces some of the finest engineers in the world. - Techn0

After reading other reviews, we expected a better experience. Pros: Large sites, around an open field, with plentiful shade trees at rear of sites. Nice folks in the office. Quiet location in the country. Cons: low voltage caused coach to shut down repeatedly. It was a hot day, and we couldn’t run A/C. Restrooms desperately needed a thorough cleaning. Water had a strong sulfur smell. Suspected poison ivy at rear of our site. We won’t return. - DebJ

I hope the Town of Wallkill realizes the treasure they now own in Korn's Campgrounds. I honestly had no idea what I was going to expect on a recent extended stay with them. We came up from Texas to see the Fall leaves. Although the soggy weather and the slow change in the seasons disappointed us, most certainly Korn's campgrounds did not. The host who runs the place was the most gracious park host meeting us upon our arrival and throughout our stay. The cast of characters (the seasonal campers) who make up the core of the park and were about the only ones left still camping that late in the season, were some of the friendliest and welcoming people we had had met on our recent trip across America. Each night we were welcomed to their large campfire, swapping stories, smiles and laughs. The park has dozens of really great camp sites nestled in the woods and alongside a babbling stream. It could use a bit more gravel in some places as things were getting pretty spongy after a long wet summer and early fall and the bathrooms could use some updating. Sometimes it's hard to really catch the vibe from a place that was not fully functioning but I would imagine camping here in the Summer would be a real delight. Other than the price, ($55.00 per night) which I was informed is not too out of line considering its proximty into the greater NYC area, I would say our stay with the fine people at Korn's was excellent. With any luck the current owners, the Town of Wallkill will make the investment to make this one of the best campgrounds in New York state. It really has that potential. - McBlaze911

Campground is tired, office disorganized. Could not level. Excess slope. Service building worn, no 'store.' Potential is there. - EdCHP

There are RV parks and places to park the RV. This RV park is the latter. There are 10 sites, all gravel. Most are close to level. We had 50/30/20 amp, sewer but the water on site was turned off due to freezing temps. First, the access is limited as RV's are prohibited on the parkways. The turn by McDonalds is sharp and tight. Manageable if there is no other traffic. Station Hill road is a steep hill, with a sharp turn that was widened and manageable for a 40 foot class A. At the bottom of the hill is the "park". A sign instructs you to pull to the rail road tracks and back in. (A small RV could manage a turnaround though.). The railroad is about 40-50 feet away from the sites and the train comes rumbling through! Lost count but at least one an hour daytime and two or three at night. Unfortunately there is a gated crossing that literally leads to the river and the train horn is required. The commuter trains run across the river and can be heard as well. If you don't like train noise in the middle of the night, earplugs or look elsewhere. The Owners were nice and gave us some local information. Payment in cash only. Utilities worked well and the owners had water available for tank fills. - DJR CMR

We stayed at this park at a site by the pond (site 57.) It is the first season for the new owners; the prior owners (was “Toye Recreation” previously) had really let the park go, and it still is in the beginning of the renewal process.
- The nicest, most helpful park owners and staff we’ve ever experienced in a decade of camping! Really made the stay enjoyable.
- The pond is stocked, and we caught a nice bigmouth bass the first day we were here :) Also clean enough to swim in. The park also provides kayaks and a boat to use.
- a BEAUTIFUL area in NJ! About 20 min’s to High Point State Park, 10 min’s to the A.T., plenty to see and do
- Many areas in the campsite as of the time we stayed there are a work in progress & therefore incomplete - the pond beach area, the pond dock, what used to be a game room & restaurant, etc are not in usable shape.
- No pool, no WiFi (although cell service was fine), no cable.
- Bathrooms/ showers are only at the main building and are rough but clean. Porta-pots in other areas of the property.
- Nothing to do in the park but play on/in the pond, fish, or just hang out. (may be a plus to some folks!)
All in all, we really enjoyed our time at this park, and we will be back next year to see the progress the new owners have made! - Will Dennis

I go camping every week and the staff were terrible and disrespectful. I would never book a spot on this campground again. If I was the owner I would feel ashamed for how they handled business. Very unprofessional. - Timothy Clark

Great Stay! Office and check-in, is by the entrance. Trailer sites are spacious and shady. The lake is beautiful and there was a restaurant facing the beach. I will definitely come back. - Woodland Trails

Very family friendly campground. Very rustic, shaded and quiet. Had no trouble getting hold of owners and employees. - happycamper123

Trash strewn at the entrance and along the access road, narrow dirt roads with numerous potholes, the pond was covered with some green sludge, permanent sites' trailers covered in mildew. Staff rarely answered their phone. No wonder there's no TL or Woodalls listing for it. We pulled in, looked around, and left in a big hurry. - Choxnpinz

Let me get to the point. This was the absolute worse KOA that we have every been too. We have been up and down the east coast and this is the first one that made me doubt frequenting KOAs. Let me just quickly run through the numerous cons: Everything is run down. Broken roads. Leaking yurts, leaking cabins, flooded sites and adjacent roads. Potholes to flip a bike tire on. Garbage strewn everywhere. Lack of personnel walking and maintaining campground. Unmowed sites, some almost abandoned-ruin like. The kayaking was in a stagnant creek. Everything for a fee. Expensive $8 day per extra car on your site in an empty campground. No activities as posted. Bouncy water slides look like the elements have been to them for years with no one taking a power washer to them. The pool, (size of most backyards and frankly smaller than our own at home). The store didn't have any hotdog buns or hamburger buns (seriously). NO One was there. Conservatively, 75% of spots were empty. Pros: People (employees) that we did see were nice, 3 of them. Bathrooms were clean always. Campground regardless felt safe. Can't emphasize enough the pictures on their site are cleaned up and not indicative of the actual state of the campground and its facilities. This campground, with some money invested, could be good if not excellent, but we are talking lots of money and care required. Never will we come here again. Honestly best tip is not go here. We have been to about a dozen in the last 3 years among other campgrounds and we really can't stress enough how unpleasant our stay was. - dadidito32

This campground gets mixed reviews from my family. We stayed here as a group with some of us renting full RV sites, some rustic tenting and a small 1 bedroom cabin. The RV sites at B5 & B7 were great. Easy back-ins, right next to bath houses and horse shoe pits, which we used all day long. Bath Houses were being cleaned frequently throughout the day. Tent Sites along the creek were small, the music & noise from adjoining tenters went into morning hours without any interruption from the campground. The 1 bedroom cabin was adequate however, you had to park at the end of the road & walk your entire belongings down the road to the cabin. Not a pleasant experience. Another cabin had a leaky hose line & nothing was done all weekend to fix it. Just sprayed water all over the walking path to the cabins. Campground had a lot of amenities, especially for the young ones. Also had a snack cafe to grab some pizza & treats. One major complaint was the large amount of potholes or should I say craters on the roads leading to the cabins & tent area. There really was no reason for it other than laziness by the staff or owners not to fill in with dirt, until properly fixing in the off season. But by the looks & size of these craters, they were there for quite some time. This was an expensive campground with $8 for a couple pieces of wood & $3 for a small bag of ice. Not to mention the high prices at the cafe & charging $5 to rent horseshoes. - easycamper

The description in the KOA book sounds great. The park was a huge disappointment. It is about 10 miles off the I-84 from exit 53 in PA. We arrived at 1:30 pm to see a sign on the door "will return at 3pm". The park gravel roads were not maintained and had low spots that were sometimes 12 feet across and pot holes of 2 or 3 feet everywhere. There were probably not more than a dozen campers in the park and they appeared to be seasonal. It had rained the night before and the pot holes and low spots were full of water. The bathrooms near the office were not clean or maintained. One shower broken and locked the other full of mold with torn shower curtain. One toilet clogged and the other filthy. When the manager showed up at 3pm they wanted to put us in a site that was under the trees full of mud holes and water with no other campers anywhere near. I refused and parked in another site on a grass field next to another RV (turned out to be the manager's). The electric box was wobbly and the 50 amp didn't work. 30 amp did work. Internet service was out. Cable did work. Response to telling 50 amp was out was "thanks for telling us". There was a building in the field that had maybe 8 of the individual showers/toilet where you could go in and lock door. Most were locked as apparently out of order. About 3 were open and showers were moldy and filthy. - sonofabaker
