“Excellent ”

Reviewed Mar 05, 2019

Overall Rating

The campground was clean and neat, the owners and hosts were all very polite, we have stayed here on numerous occasions over the past 3 years, in both the summer and winter. If yo uare coming here from I-87 (Adirondack Northway) and pulling a camper, it can be better to come from the in from Exit 34, rather than 30. Exit 34 has some steep grades and tight switchbacks. Totally passable towing a camper, but if there is a possibility of icy conditions, exit 34 is less steep.

Minutes from Whiteface mountain and 20 minutes to Lake Placid, in the summer they offer hay rides and have a swimming pool and ice cream shack. The rear of the campground has river access for fishing .. .etc .... wonderful place

Internet coverage can be spotty. you're in the mountains ... get out and hike

“Good location, not the standards I'm used to from a KOA”

Reviewed Oct 06, 2018

The location is about 20 minutes to Lake Placid and quite a long ways off the interstate. We came in through Plattsburgh headed south on 87 and took 9N to 86. I don't normally comment on directions but I'm mentioning it specifically because the route we took avoided 12% grades on 9N through Keene and Jay.
The campground is heavily wooded and quiet. Lots of walking opportunities. A great dog walk and dog park. Good cable and strong 50 amp FHU.
Bathrooms were single rooms with showers and clean.
The area is beautiful with lots of hiking and outdoor activities.
For shopping, you'll have to head into Lake Placid for groceries or whatever you need. There's not much by the campground.
Wifi was typical crappy campground speeds at about 1-2d/l.
For cell hotspots, you will need your booster. - ATT unboosted was bad (1-2d/l) but boosted with Weboost we got 11d/l speeds and 2.63 u/l. Verizon was not good at 1.29 d/l with booster. We used the ATT hotspot all week and it was reliable and maintained good speeds.

The site we were in was advertised as a pull thru but this was not the typical KOA quality. Roads were tight and dirt and very rutted. The site was not a pull thru it was a pull in and back out because you could not make that turn if you pulled through. The site was not level, took quite a bit of negotiating to an odd angle to get fairly level. These are things I expect for a KOA at $55 night. Minimum is level easy to navigate site.
