“Way overpriced, in need of maintenance”

Reviewed Jun 18, 2018

Overall Rating

The pros: Large sites, interesting amenities, strong 50 amp FHU, great cable channels, good location to Woodstock, the Catskills, lots of space to walk around (huge campground), and friendly staff. Tons of things for kids to do. They are clearly catering to families and return visitors who probably live in the area and come back every summer.
The cons: Staff doesn't maintain sites well. There was trash (candy wrappers and wadded up paper towels) in my site, cobwebs on the power poles, cables coming out of the ground because they're not buried properly, and trees that need to be trimmed.

There are a lot of permanent residents here. They keep their spaces clean. This is a huge park. It's probably 1/2 mile to walk from the back to the front. A lot of the amenities are the front. The laundry, shower house etc. So that can be rather inconvenient.
The drive inside the campground was tight with bad gravel/slate roads and very forested. I would not want to bring a nicely painted 42 ft motorhome through here. This place is not big rig friendly, or medium rig friendly really. I think a lot could be done with this park if they just maintained it more. At $64/night for a weekly rate, it was pretty expensive.

When I checked in they were out of maps and couldn't seem to get anything printed for me since they were having issues with the printer, so I never did get the wifi password or a park map. I can't tell you how wifi worked but the cell hotspot reception for both ATT (12d/l) and Verizon (5 d/l) was good unboosted. I don't think I would stay here again simply for the bad driving conditions through the park.
