"Love this place."

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

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

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 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

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

Rude and disrespectful owners. Which is a shame because the sites are nice. Also clean. Low power. Air conditioner not allowed to be used. Sometime sewer backs up. Low water pressure. Loud and rowdy behavior is not only allowed but seems to be encouraged. If you stay, be prepared to be watched and harassed by management. - Peaceful camper

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

This park has nice spacious sites from tenting to cabins to full hook ups. We come every Labor Day and have to book a year out to be guaranteed your site. Campground owners should visit here and see how a week run campground it... Very family friendly too... - RPHaskins

We had more than enough room at our site for our 40' motorhome. The spaces are quite large with some trees between the sites which is nice. This is a small campground with 7 sites right next to the creek. Sites 1-10 are on the open grass field next to the pavillon so avoid those if you are looking for a shady more private spot. Overall great place to stay. The icecream cones we enjoyed at the little red caboose in front were very good. - airstreamerSC

If you’re looking to tube the West Canada Creek this is the place to stay. They offer a shuttle to a drop off point where you can float all the way to the campground. Only downside is there aren’t too many 50amp sites and the number that fit a big rig are even less. We have a 50amp but had a back-in 30amp site. We couldn’t run the a/c but the temp was pleasant enough that we were okay with just windows open - AJay

The sites themselves are huge. It’s too bad the lake is so dirty. It actually smells.! ☹️ - saunts

Had a very large site in the woods on the lake. Campground is heavily wooded, but we managed to get Dish satellite signal. Facilities are outdated with 3 mens & 3 womens shower stalls for all 100 campsites. Roads in campground are potholed gravel and not well drained. Lots of boaters and fisherman use this park and many campers tie their boat up right at their site. Nice beach with adjacent convenience store. - Appleknocker

This is a great area, unfortunately the restrooms / showers need updating badly. They are as clean as you can get them but not as nice as most of the other State Parks. The Dump station is really awful!!! It's on a SMALL dirt road that is one big puddle if it's raining. It's really too bad because the sites are large and wooded.
The beach area is beautiful and there are playgrounds galore! This could be a "premier park" if NYS would invest a few dollars in updating. The staff is very friendly and, accommodating. Wood is available at the check-in and, there is a NICE store at the beach that has supplies, good food and ice cream at a reasonable price.
We had the fried Haddock dinner for $10.95 and it was very tasty!
I believe ALL the sites have power and they are all spacious. The waterfront sites are GREAT!
Book early: this campground is 10 minutes from Rome, N.Y. and is quite busy in peak season. Even though the campground is quite near a big city, you feel you are in the country...quiet and peaceful! - saunts

When I was a young child, my family use to go to this campground and my memories of camping there with extended family are some of the best childhood memories that I have. My wife and I and some friends decided to try the campground out after many years. I was a bit reluctant, having placed this campground in such high esteem based on those great childhood memories, and not knowing the current condition of the park. I was not at all let down. It is a small park, only 56 sites, but the sites are large, very wooded and some are electric. The swimming area is created by damming the Whetstone Creek. It is a very quaint, very nice campground with some excellent hiking trails and an excellent fishing spot at the Reservoir just up the road. We will return so that our children have good memories of this campground too. - camping lansing

This is a large campground with many sites. However, it seems to never fill to capacity. There are many beautiful waterfront sites. We camped on #115 which would fit just about ANY RV. As this is a NY State DEC campground there is NO ELECTRIC. You may run your own generator 9AM-11AM and 4PM- 7PM. Water is available to fill your RV and there is a tap about every 10 sites. The only real drawback is that there is only ONE dump station. The head caretaker and his entire staff work very hard to make sure you have a great experience. Fall camping here is just wonderful..! - saunts

Showers close at 10 p.m.! Showers are in their own building and are open 6 a.m. till 10 p.m. There was a "run" on the showers come 9 as everyone tried to get their shower in before they closed. I usually shower after the kids fall asleep (while someone stays at camp), so this was inconvenient. We would have to either roast s'mores early, or late - after showers. There was plenty of wood you could use for firewood laying around all of the campsites. Bring an ax to chop up some of the bigger pieces (you can't cut trees down, but there were plenty all ready down). There are NO playgrounds. This was our first time in the area and I was not prepared for that. Every other state park we have been to has a playground, but no playgrounds seems to be the norm for that area. Fishing (from a kayak) was okay. Nothing big, but things were biting. The beach area was nice. Parking all over the park was tight, with just small pull off areas. You get phone service in Inlet. - Sbrooks

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
