We called for a reservation and spoke to the NEW owners who just took over this camping season (2019). I am familiar with the campground as I have stayed there before. Whippoorwill Motel, Cabins and Campground is located right on Route 9 in between Lake George Village and the Outlet Malls. The campground has 46 sites and the owner is planning more across the road. My site included electric, water and cable TV, picnic table and fire pit. Some sites also have sewer. . There is a small arcade, showers, bathrooms, small play area and a pool. The grounds are very well kept, the new owner is very approachable. I call this campground a little gem because for the amenities it offers for $42 a night is pretty good for Lake George. There is a walking path at the rear of the campground that takes you to Lake George on way, the outlets the other. The Lake George trolley stops at the campground that will take you either way. Lake George Great Escape is not far away. The only negative is the park is small, large trailers or big rigs may have trouble maneuvering around and the sites are rather close! During the season it is filled on the weekends and holidays so reservations is recommended.

This is a very small campground behind a motel. That said, the campground itself is fairly attractive, with plenty of trees and grass, a nice pool, and a tent area. There are only four full hookup sites, so we had an electric+water site for our 6-night stay. The dump station was easy to get to on the way out. Sites are decently spaced... not exactly spacious, but not right on top of one another. There are also some unavoidable low tree branches at the entrance. The main problem we had was that the sites are just grass, and we arrived after a day of rain, so our site quickly turned to mud as we tried to back our 40-foot diesel motorhome into it. We put down wood blocks under our tires and jacks and were able to get parked without sinking in too much but it was tricky, and when we left we had to dig our sunken wood blocks out of the now-solid ground. Adding some gravel to the sites would make a big difference. The gravel interior roads are nice and solid. The park is in a central location with easy access to Lake George and Glens Falls. The campground backs onto a paved walking/biking trail along a small stream, which gave us miles of walking options for our active dog. AT&T and Verizon both worked well. The free WiFi even worked much of the time, but was hard to get a strong signal from our site. We received mail/packages during our stay, but the motel office reeked of cigarette smoke and the person we interacted with was not particularly friendly. We'd consider staying again due to the price and bike path access, but will also research other options in the area that might be more big-rig friendly.
