“Activity based campground with nice sized shady sites”
Reviewed Aug 26, 2015
Been going to Lake Dunmore Kamperville every 3-5 years over the last 25 years. Usually stay for a week. Plenty to do in and around Lake Dunmore area. It is a fairly active campground, with many planned activities like Shuffleboard or Horseshoe tournament, wagon rides, arts & crafts.... just about everyday. Bingo used to also be run 6 days a week, but our last visit (Aug 2015) it was cut to 3 days a week. They have a pool area that is divided into 3 walled off sections. It seems to be the center of activities. 5 years ago they had just installed a feature by the pool that shoots jets of water in the air for the kids to run thru. It was out of service then (2010), and also it appears to be in non-working order this year too. Too bad because kids would have a ball running thru the jets of water.
Since 2010 and our visit in Aug. 2015 the management has tried to make it more of a family campground. It seems about 30-40 seasonal sites have been eliminated. They used to have teen dances on the weekends that were rather rowdy. I think that was the reason there are now less seasonal campers. This past visit, there was a DJ with more of a "family" type dance. It did seem to be a little less rowdy, especially on the weekends. Most are full service sites, but some are still water & electric. That kind of brings up a issue that the single (hole) dump station is located in a funny location right in the way of the main campground road.
The sites for the most part are level and of average or larger sized. 90% are full shade. Even 45' RV's would have no problem fitting into some of the sites. The lake ( Lake Dunmore) is across the street from one section of the campground.
3G Verizon coverage, but free WiFi at the rec hall and front office areas. Most of the time the WiFi at the rec hall was very weak because of too many users.
Over the last 25 years not much has been done to update the beach area. There is a older wooden playground pirate ship the kids used to be able to go in and climb on. It's in dis-repair and boarded up. There are picnic tables along one side, but look very un-inviting. This area of lakefront is a gem, but because of years of neglect or no improvements, it gets under used. Too bad...Nice clear water, beautiful mountain views. This is kind of a theme throughout the campground. It needs more attention to daily upkeep. They have 3 shower buildings, none seem to be very modern.
