Campground roads can only fit one vehicle. Sites are poorly numbered. Ground is not level and wood debris strewn all over. Campsites are much too close. I could hear personal conversations from neighboring campers. Broken curtains on shower stalls. No dressing room and must dress in front of everyone who is using the toilets- I left the campground earlier than planned because I could not shower. - Ugogo

We have experienced NY state parks that are well set up and well run. This is not one of them. The sites are strewn all over a hill side with cross roads that are steep and barely wide enough for a vehicle. Each site is identified with a number, but there is no indication at each "road" what sites are along that "road." Once the office closes around 6:00 pm, according to the signs posted, there is no one on site overnight. Of course, there are no hookups whatsoever. The place was OK for two mid-week overnights of dry-camping while exploring the area, but there's not much to recommend the place. The trash barrel at my site was packed full for two nights. The $5 surcharge for non-residents plus the $2.50 "transaction fee" (for showing up?) is the frosting on a lousy cake. I don't think I'd stay there again. - Jay Rutherford

The campground is only five miles north of Hyde Park, where the FDR and Vanderbilt National Historic Site is located on beautiful route 9. So we stayed two nights without hookups near the Hudson River. The sites are not level but you can find some that will take RVs under 30 feet. There are bathrooms with showers but we arrived on Memorial Day and they were dirty and stayed that way for our two day stay. The host site was not filled and I think maybe the hosts are responsible for the cleaning? Nice hiking trails high up along the Hudson River going to the Marina and north of the park. Cottages are available for rent. This is a big complex of over 1,000 acres. In the park there are picnic areas, trails, bridle paths, fishing, two 9 hole golf courses, cross country skiing, sledding hills, snowmobiling and the Mills Mansion. - gsnakehill

The park was especially crowded. The staff tried hard to keep up but there were so many people they were overwhelmed. The water system failed to work in the morning. We had no water at our site. The bathrooms were non functional due to the lack of water. I am sure this was a one time event but it obviously impacted our impression. Our site was steeper than usual. - lancecamper

We only stayed one night as we were traveling from NY State to Conn. We were happy to have a level, full hook-up, crushed stone site that was long enough to back our trailer into without having to unhook. TV/cable was via Direct TV & out due to the rain. We could not access the WIFI either. The park was quiet on our rainy, weeknight. Many of the interior roads were paved & fairly tight, but not unmanageable. Our spot had lots of mature trees & vegetation. We would stay overnight again. - R&S

Well stocked store. Wine shop on site. Small fenced dog area. Unfortunately, people had not been picking up after their dogs in the dog area. Spacious and private camp site. Can take a day trip to New York city with bus tour that picks up at campground. We couldn't do it because we have a dog with us. Nice shady campground with good places to walk the dog. Some reviewers commented about a lot of poison ivy. We saw some but would not say it is over run with it. - ClassCdogperson

This older park is located on a small lake and is pleasantly landscaped. Staff was helpful and pleasant to work with. It was early in the season so the beach was not yet open. There are boat docks. Our grandchildren enjoyed the playground. The roads are paved and nice for walking. We stayed here to have a location close to Poughkeepsie and to a Metro station. Most of the lots seemed to be seasonal. - Bonnie Lee

This campground is on a beautiful lake, but it's too far from the highway for a one night stay. I'd recommend it for a longer stay, however, because it's a lovely, peaceful spot! We had a roomy, level, gravel back-in site site with shade. The wifi worked well; no cable. - Lyn T

We got the impression this park was mostly for seasonals and long term residents. As you enter the campground, you can see a number of campers that basically look like trailer homes and there was various debris stored here and there. None of it was terrible, but it was noticeably different than the other RV parks we've stayed in.
While the campground is located on a lake, and the loop we were in was ok, it definitely did not seem like a destination campground. When we first arrived and walked into the little campground office, I said hello and the guy just stared at me. I actually wondered if we'd walked into the wrong office or something. I said we were checking in and he just responded: "Last name?" Not exactly warm and fuzzy. He handed me a couple pages of rules to sign off on and then directed us to our site.
Our loop was a large grass field with RVs parked along the perimeter. The sites are large and level and there was good site separation. There were no trees or bushes between the sites. The hookups seemed ok, but we lost power twice. Once was during a thunderstorm, so no surprise there. But the other was just random with no obvious reason.
The lake has an area buoyed off for swimming and the green spaces are well kept and pretty, but the buildings look pretty run down. We tried walking around the perimeter of the lake, but ran into some lovely signs from some crazy neighbors threatening to shoot us if we trespassed. It might have been nice if the campground management mentioned the fact that some lunatic gun nut lived nearby and threatens to shoot their patrons....
In any case, other than the FDR historical sites in Hyde Park, there's not a whole lot to do in this area. It was just a transit stop for us and that's all I would recommend it for. If it was $30 or $35 per night, I might feel differently. But for $50 per night, I expect a bit more than unfriendly welcomes and death threats from the neighbors. - LGRV

This campground had changed a lot in the past few years. Some good and some not so good. I must say the campground is clean and the staff is pretty good. The problems are with owners. The pools are small and way over crowded witch makes it almost completely impossible to swim on a hot day. The pool area can look la where is Waldo picture. The other main problem is it gets VERY loud at night. Lots of loud music late at night. People set up outdoor tower speakers and blast music as late as 3am. I won’t be returning with my children. - Brian Melissa

What can I say about the best campground we have stayed in. Now have stayed 17 nights and have enjoyed them all. Activities great, facility extra clean, staff extremely accommodating and friendly. Cable TV of over 80 channels! Free WiFi near excellent. This is proof of you get what you pay for. Worth the $$$. - Jimbeau

Second time staying here. Had a great spot right on the river. Water park feature and two pools are great for the kids. River is also quite good, though it was a bit shallow given the dry spell recently. Still, were able to wade/walk in it, and kayak too. Highlight for us was being able to rent a hot tub! They brought it to our site, filled it with hot water, and it was waiting for us when we arrived. Used it every day- just awesome. Food by the pool was surprisingly good. Campsite store was fine. Getting a good seat by the pools can be a challenge- should get there early. Also, the river front sites with the concrete pads are pricey- that was my biggest negative. But all in all, enjoyed our time here and will definitely return. - RRiv

Stay away! Online rate said $35.00, I was told by "Manager" (who seemed either drunk or stoned) that the rate was $45, cash only, that they were "trying" to change it on online! Yes, it did say rates are subject to change without notice, but it still did not sit well. He gave me change, shorted me $5.00, no receipt. Asked about wifi and he said rate for places w/ wifi in area would be $60.00. Space was pitch black, and 30 amp plug was chewed up, sparked when connected! (no disconnect switch) Had to drive through big pile of leaves to get into site..totally dark, difficult to see where to park. Never again!! - NFRS

Mostly tent sites; about 5 RV sites. Sort of level. Very small but only game in town. No WiFi, no TV. Bathhouse reasonably clean. TP so thin it tears very easily. We were there for a wedding, otherwise we would have left. Oh yeah, no receipt for payment, either. All very casual. Owner makes rounds in his car -- too fat to walk -- takes about 10 minutes. - MovableBookLady

We have stayed here before and were reluctant to drive the hilly windy road again. But this time we had a level spot right across from the office that was an easy back-in. We had good Verizon service and wifi. Although the campground is pretty with lots of mature trees and a small fishing pond, our spot was pretty bare. There is no dog run but lots of grassy areas for walking. It's an easy 15 minute ride to Rhinebeck's many restaurants, several of which have outdoor seating where dogs are allowed. The office staff was very helpful. We'd definitely return if we're in the area. - Dapper

We got the last site on a holiday weekend, parking on a hill with quite a slope. We bought leveling blocks to make it work better. At 30 feet we were maxed on that site. Water and 30 amp electric with gray water only discharge via hose, was a first for us. Roads were tight but very doable. WiFi was FAST, though there were some connectivity issues. The owner was pretty dedicated to making it work without compromises. I would have loved to come here with my kids. - Sawbonz

We just stayed here for Memorial Day weekend in order to attend our son's college graduation. We picked Interlake purely on location, and were very pleasantly surprised. Beautiful park with lots of trees and shade. The reviews that complain about narrow roads can be taken with a grain of salt. Fully maneuverable, you just have to go slowly. We booked three adjacent sites, and none of us had any issues getting in or out. The largest rig in our party is a 30ft class c motorhome with a car in tow. We are likely to return. - Ring Brook

State park created through donation in 1929. Facilities built by CCC's during the 1930's. Not much in the way of development or maintenance has been done since then. Restrooms are rustic though they do have flush toilets and showers without need of quarters. Most of sites for tents with poor access and tent pad area. Road through park is tight and full of potholes and broken pavement. One of worst state parks, more like unmaintained county park. Has access to beach area across highway. Lots of hiking paths and fishing with several near-by lakes. Designated trailer sites have no hook-ups and were literally sites in a field. No potable water at CG. - Al Z

Very large campground with pool, snack bar, lots of games and occasional disc jockey. Not well maintained. Dirty bathrooms, big holes in gravel roads. Some sites have sewer but cost is the same whether or not you have sewer, then you have to pay extra for honey wagon. So actually more expensive if no sewer. Fellow campers very good about observing quiet hours and slow speed limit. Half or more if the campground is occupied by seasonals who have tons of stuff (junk) even their own landscaping. One of the two dump stations was out of order almost the entire time we were there. First come first serve for full hook up sites, but all cost the same. When you pay for honey wagon, non sewer sites become more expensive than sewer sites. - Joaowens

I think the best thing about Rondout Valley is its location. While most attractions aren't exactly close, they are nearby. The campground, itself, has a big pool that stays quite busy. There's an Activity building with a café, a rather worn Adult Lodge, a camp store, and a few sports venues. We saw many children having a wonderful time biking the roads and enjoying all the campground has to offer. Rondout Valley has many seasonal and permanent campers. That does limit the number of sites available for others, but, from what I could tell there were a few vacant spots available most of our stay. The big rigs prefer the spots along the main road in. These are 50 amp/FHU sites. Those on the north side of the road have a chance at getting satellite TV. The sites are plenty deep, but are pretty close side to side. There are also 30 amp/FHU sites that would work for bigger rigs. Really, things are spread out to the point that I'm not sure I got a handle on what sites are where. The main roads in and around the campground are nicely paved. Other roads are gravel with potholes. The restrooms are older and often in need of attention, especially over the weekend when the place was packed out. If anything, I'd say this campground is being loved to death and that leaves an overall feeling of it being too well used. I was able to get satellite TV without any problem and my Verizon data was solid. - nazpaz

I only stayed at round out Valley RV campground for one night when passing through the area. I did not use any of the amenities so can't really speak well of them. The site I had was almost level but the hook ups were not convenient. The electrical hook up and water was fine but the sewer connection was further than I had hose to reach. The cable TV did not work. The campground is mostly seasonal but well maintained and welcoming to transient campers. I would stay here again if in the area. - DMiner54

We arrived in a 38' Class A motorhome with a Jeep Wrangler toad. The turn into the camp is very tight. The camp manager was very helpful. The maintenance workers, were very responsive when issues are brought to their attention. But it is obvious that they are overworked. The owner came by to welcome us. He seems to be a good person. Our site was large enough to fit our coach & Jeep toad. But it was filled by rocks of all sizes, we weren't able to level without our right rear wheels coming off the ground, by about 3 inches. The 50 amp pedestals were generating low voltage. 50 amp service was intermittent during our stay. The sewer backed up while we dumped our tanks. It is a sad little campground, and appears to be holding on by its finger nails. It appears to be in a downward spiral. The tent area has the look of abandonment with huge piles of brush and tree branches. Camp WiFi is decent, No OTA channels, trees completely block any satellite signals, no DISH, no DirecTV We got a good signal with our Verizon phones and Verizon Jetpack. - Traveling Sid

SOHI is expensive for one night stay with GS discount, this park is definitely not Big Rig Friendly, we arrived late , hosts was very friendly, we moved our 5th wheel to the site , difficult to get a 40ft 5th wheel in site we were given, had to use 75 ft of water hose to connect to water , pressure was good, electrical 50 amp was good, very rustic , I was raised in country and this place is in sticks, narrow road from highway to the office , pool looks like a rusted breeding ground for mosquitoes that hasn't been taken care of in a long time, I wouldn't let cows drink out of that place., I think this is the place I damaged my rv at. By all means GO SOMEWHERE ELSE. - Vetl82

Located 6 mi off main highway on a well surfaced but hilly, winding road. We managed ok with 39ft mh. Road into park as well as roads to sites are very rough. Sites are back in and not level. The pool is closed, empty and falling apart. On a more positive note --. The bathroom, shower, and laundry room is modern and very clean. Many of the sites full hookup with sewer and 50amp. The owner and hosts are very friendly and helpful. Much for kids to do. The best way to describe this park is rustic, very rustic. - atwig

Great county run park, much like a state park, very quiet at night as it mostly gets day use. Seriously unlevel sites but big. - Mcewena
