This park has exactly two things going for it: 1) it’s super close to the village of Lake George. We walked to everything. Traffic and parking looked to be a nightmare in town. 2) it’s probably the cheapest place to stay on the south end of Lake George. Otherwise this is a pretty mediocre state park. There are very few RV sites and some with tight back-ins. The sites vary in size but most are small and close together. We stayed in site 34, which was a nice width, but not deep enough for the trailer and truck. 46 looked to be the best site for an RV. Arrive with full water tanks if possible. They have water around camp but no way to hook up a hose and the dump station spout is very suspect. The dump station also was closed due to over flowing by 10:30 AM on our Monday checkout. We went 10 miles south on 87 and paid $8 to dump at Moreau Lake State Park.

They are not very happy with people arriving after 9pm. We arrived at 11pm due to bad traffic and were promptly scolded. Sites are super tight to back into and are even tighter with cars parked close to camp roads. This was Friday of a holiday weekend, so this may not be normal. We ultimately just pulled straight into our site and then backed in the following morning. We asked a few cars to move temporarily so we could get backed in. Everyone was super nice and happy to help. Bathroom and showers were clean and front desk staff was super nice. AT&T signal was strong. Camped with a 29’ trail trailer.
If you want a campground close to town and to experience all Lake George has to offer, then this is a great campground. This was our goal and we had a awesome time shopping in the village, rented a pontoon boat, road the steam boat, wine tasting for adults, arcade for kids, touring the fort, and visiting the local museum.

As far as NY state parks go, this is not one of the most memorable or spacious. What is lacks in atmosphere it gains in convenience. It’s located directly across from the Lake George Battleground - a beautiful park with lots of French American war history. It’s also walking distance to the water and village. If you’re looking for a no frills spot to park your camper and tour the area, this works fine. If you want amenities like pools, playgrounds, etc. then one of the private resort type campgrounds is a better choice.
