The best thing about this campground for short term visitors are the people...both the owners and the long-term guests. Back in sites at the far end of the park looked very nice...wooded and spacious. We were in the front, pull-thru area, away from the decent showers and rest rooms. There are a fair number of seasonal folks, and everyone we came in contact with was very nice. There was no wifi at all and no cell service (Verizon). If you are looking for a quiet campground in the foothills of the Adirondacks, this is a fine place. If you needed amenities...keep looking. - DrLewie

My wife and I stayed for two weeks over Labor day. This is a really great campground. Nestled in the Adirondack mountains. While we were there Cooperstown is close by and beautiful country for pictures. The owners go out if there way taking care of their RV'S. Don't miss this one. - Larry and Sondra

I am giving this campground 5 stars for many reasons, but mainly because of the owners! The lady at the front desk was sooo nice! When I first called for the reservation we chatted like old friends, and when I called back to see if I could extend our stay she was very accommodating. But the amazing part happened after the lightning storm. Our 45' newly purchased motorhome was struck by lightning! This was horrifying to us as we were unable to start our diesel engine and many of the rigs systems were fried. The owner's found out and they were so helpful! Our Verizon signal didn't work, and obviously we needed to make calls. The owners let us come up to their house to make any calls, and a guy who worked there even gave us his phone to use for the day until we could get things arranged. The owners came by our rig periodically to see how they could help and allowed us to stay (without charge) until the tow truck could pick us up. I can't say enough nice things about the way this park is run! There were many activities for the kids, but if you just want to hang out in a beautiful, peaceful place....then this is it! We will definitely stay here again if we are ever in the area....AND if there are no storms predicted! LOL. - malnmad

Our site was level with plenty of room. Campground has lots of trees. The interior roads are dirt with gravel. Electrical power, water and sewer are good. The staff was very friendly. - jim65

There are many seasonal RVs, that appear to be in their campsite year around. The interior roads are basically dirt with a little gravel. They are very rough (ruts) in many areas. Roads are narrow and make it difficult driving to your site. The camp sites are dirt with a very little grass, the area has many trees. The water pressure is on the low side while the electrical power is good. Verizon cell service is low in the area and conversations break up. The Internet service is okay but available just near the office. There is a new heated swimming pool and it is very nice. We camped here three nights. It appears to be over priced for the quality of the campground. The staff was very friendly. - flrop

We stayed over a full weekend, Friday to Monday. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Campsite was neat and the personnel were friendly and helpful. We had a river front site and it was very peaceful. We did not camp with children although there were quite a few there. - Doug Kraft

Great time. Wish we could have stayed longer with the group. Owners pleasant and accommodating to campers. Very clean campground. So pretty. Will definitely be back next year; hope they can get us space for a week. - Gloria Bear

Site 47. In our opinion this was the best site in the campground, but most of the 3 service site are very good. We had 3 services. We were backed onto a beautiful river. There was an access to the water (just to sit & look at no boat ramp there) beside us. We will go back this campground again. Staff was very friendly. Quiet campground. Long weekends they have fun activities. What else can I say but "try it". You won't be disappointed. - Jaybejo

This place is as advertised, a family campground. We camped in a 40' motorhome for 9 days in a back-in site. This is not the place to be if you want a nice quiet sojourn with nature. The nature part is great as the campground is nestled in the Adirondack forest only a short distance from Old Forge. There are many rv, tent and cabin/cottages surrounding the Serene Lake. The quiet part is pretty much an impossibility. This is really a family with kids kind of place. Large groups with several families. The night peace is typically broken with rowdy and inebriated adults and unruly kids chasing after the black bears that frequent the campground. Although the management gives a complete briefing on the dos and don'ts with regard to the bears, it is largely ignored. Many of the sites are almost impossible to maneuver into with either a motorhome or trailer and many cases require an empty site on the other side of the assigned site to be able to maneuver around the myriad of trees that line the narrow and often congested roads. We watched folks take over 30 minutes to get into a back-in and often just made the block for another try. The sites are dirt that quickly turns to sticky mud when one of the frequent rain showers shows up. Many of the sites are very short and butt up against sites behind and on the side. Sites can be unlevel front to back and side to side. Most sites have no sewer connection but they offer a honey wagon at $20 per visit. There is no cable tv and satellite is impossible due to the trees. Power in this area is unreliable and there can be no use of ac when it is hot unless you turn on your generator which all of the close in campers will not appreciate. The folks in the office are very helpful and there is a well stocked store. The place is a decent value given the lack of certain amenities and is fine for those that want a true camping experience. We would not return; however, there are very few alternatives in this area. - tomcotten

34 ft TT. Back in site. By lake. Wasn't sure we could get it in here. Others watching didn't think so either..if they would remove stumps would of been great Site has a lot of ankle twister holes. Be careful. Office staff friendly. Heart of old forge. Walking path to water park. But were camping so let's enjoy the fall foliage. - TheRealMcCoys

We came in on a Tuesday and it was wide open. They assigned us a great space one row from the lake. Level site, clean, 30A service, and near enough to the lodge to get decent network access. Nice crew working here. Nothing going on in town as the season is over. But so nice and quiet here. I would not want to be here on a weekend or during the regular season. - Kvw613

I have mixed reviews for this campground. Cons: Woman who checked us in was not friendly at all. When explaining the campground rules, she mentioned several times that if the rules were broken, we would be asked to leave, and they would "keep our money." This didn't exactly make us feel welcome. Even at $60 per night, campers are not allowed to run air conditioners or electric heaters (we were told due to voltage problems in the area). Luckily, the weather in early Sept. didn't require either. There was only one trash dumpster for the entire campground. Pros: Our site, in the woods among tall shade trees, was nice. It was mostly level, gravel/sand, and not too tight. Park was clean, with a kids playground and small swim beach on the Moose River. There was plenty of green space in the front of the park to walk my dogs. Campground was quiet, and a short drive to the North Forge attractions. Due to their high price and electric restrictions, we would check out other campgrounds in the area before staying here again. - FranM

Adirondack location. Converted three back in sites for us to use as one long pull through. It was during the week before school let out. Grass pads, gravel roads. We were out in the sun but there are sites in very shaded tree area. No sewer for us however most sites do have sewer. We had a lovely view of the water. Use of air conditioners not permitted. This was due to inadequate power source. Open all year, even in winter for snowmobilers. Clean large bathrooms. No credit cards. Well maintained and clean park with friendly staff. Would return again at this time of year. - Sunnie-Wheelhouse

Stayed around site 122 or 124 (can't remember exactly). Site was beautuful, right on the water. The sounds of the water were so relaxing. Didn't spend too much time at the site as we were mostly in town. Att had zero service, which I usually like to stream music and watch tv while going to bed. Not a huge deal breaker but just a little fyi. Owners were very friendly and accommodating (had a small prob with sewer). Overall, a great campground with beautiful waterfront sites. - Chriselex

A real gem at the edge of Adirondack Park! The facility is a wide open space with shade trees around the perimeter. The park road is gravel and plenty wide. Sites are grass with pedestal conveniently located in the rear. Most sites are level, requiring no more that a 2" board or block to level. A few sites at the lower end are soft after heavy rain. Full hookups are available with 30 & 50 amp plugs. There are also sites with no hookups or electric only for boondocking or tents. Satellite access is easy and AT&T service is good.
The park has a recreation room available that is used for square dancing on the weekends. There is a plumbed restroom and a shower facility.
There is no web site for this park. The managers quickly responded to phone messages and were very accommodating during our stay.
Basic campground but a great bargain, convenient location and wonderful hosts. - Rod n Mary

This is a rare park in the Lowville-Boonville area that has 50 amp hookups. The service was wonderful and friendly. Beautiful sites by the Black River. Downside was the pad was not paved and it rained a lot that week, but most are not in this area. Will definitely stay again. - RV Doc

Very friendly owner - came out in heavy rain to direct us into a spot A few sites are in an open, grassy area in the front, near the barn. Many more sites further back in the trees. We didn't use amenities and were well satisfied with a one-night stay near the barn. All three power options, water and sewer hookup available. - OlderGoat

Semi remote and hilly campground about 2 miles from the town of Inlet, and 10 miles to Old Forge. Sites are spacious and most are fairly level with many on the lake shore. All sites are heavily wooded and NON-Electric. There are water spigots scattered around and a fill area near the boat launch as you enter campsite area. Park roads are narrow and most are one way making this not so easy for a large motor home or trailer. The lake is beautiful with many Loons and Grebes which make great viewing, and they call hauntingly at night, competing with the Owls. Bears are also in area as we found fresh tracks on beach. The swim beach is sandy and clean, and you can rent canoes and kayaks at $20.00 for 24 hours. Many places to buy firewood nearby. - Willburr

NYS actually has three parks on Lake Piseco. We stayed in Sand Point which I think is the nicest of the three. Fishing, swimming, and jet skiing are pretty much the only choices here. We had to travel to Speculator to another state park for showers. The bathrooms at Sand Point (and I assume the other two parks at Piseco) are outhouses! They smell terribly, they were not always the cleanest, and require a hike from some sites. - Shuckapeafarms

This park, like all the New York State Dept of Environmental Conservation operated parks in the Adirondacks, is basic. It has simple, non-flush bathrooms and most importantly, no shower facility. If you want to shower you must travel fifteen minutes to the NY DEC park at Moffitt Beach. You can enter the park by showing your pass and use the shower. Keep in mind, it costs a quarter to turn on the shower. This park has no hook ups at all. It is simply an Adirondack mountain camping site. It is one of three NY DEC parks located on Piseco Lake, all of which are basically the same. These parks are the way I remember camping as a kid - carrying water, big campfires at night, cool evenings in almost total darkness. They are basic, but I personally love them. - FingerLakes

Very well maintained property. Bathrooms clean. Our MH was backed in and rhe rear of our site was next to the Canada Creek. Tubing in the creek. Many activities for kids. Employees very polite and helpful. Power was good. Each site has 2 water connections . Cable TV works fine. Only complaint was the dust where drove past on the roadways. I would recommend this CG. I will return. - Zman1403

Typical KOA pricing - the full hookups on a pull-through was outrageous so we settled for a water and electric only pull-through. Staff was friendly and bathrooms were relatively clean - it rained so it is hard to keep the dirt out. Campground is next to a nice river and lots of people were tubing. You can walk to the diamond mines across the street. - NH Hiker

Approx. 9 miles off I-90, we used directions from their KOA web site, and they ask you to call them if using GPS. Our site was pull thru, gravel and not level. The gravel pad was narrow, and there was a drop off to one side. Not deep but enough to bring our tires off ground when leveling. Site was long, so 40' rig and tow fit with plenty of room. Unfortunately the previous campers left trash on the ground and in the fire ring. The park needs to do better policing the campsites after a weekend. Plus, campers need to clean their area before they leave. I cleaned out the fire ring for the next campers. Dumpsters were overflowing with trash even in mid-week. The weekends are busy but the dumpsters should have been emptied before mid week. Even though there are mature trees on property, we were able to get satellite. Some sites are more shaded then others. They have some unique cabins on property. Laundry room is adequate however costly @ $1.50 each for wash & dry. The dryers were not efficient as I had to hang dry my towels and other items even after 45 minutes. There is a small dog park, and green space to walk dogs. The park is located along the West Canada creek and there are a few kid activities. They also have a restaurant across the street, but it wasn't open when we camped. Also, they have a diamond mine that you can pay to hunt for your own gems. We only stayed one night, therefore didn't get a chance to try it out. The nightly rate is high for the value. - KKColorado
