Absolutely an excellent time for couples and families or just getting away from it all alone. So much to do in the area. Very clean and maintained and no monkey business when it comes to the ever present bear families enjoying the great outdoors as well.

This place is wonderful. It’s clean, and camping how it should be. Most campgrounds these days are open fields with camper next to camper. This campground is in the woods and has all kinds of wildlife. Pets are welcome and never experienced any issues about my dogs. The private

We had a wonderful stay. Never spotted a bear (kind of disappointed actually) our cabins were right next door to eachother due to the very helpful staff over the phone. My grandchildren(3yrs and 6yrs) had the best first camping experience! We went during the autumn adventure

We recently stayed at this campground for our annual trip. We have been staying here because we have 2 small children ( 2 yr. old & 5 month old ) with us and at this time tent camping is out of the question. This is a nice place and we had a good site but it is becoming a

Thank you for taking the time to review our campground. We are glad you enjoy your stays with us, and we appreciate your concerns. All of our prices are based on 2 people sharing, and are advertised as such, and there are additional charges for extra guests. Children 2 and under are free. We get an overwhelming amount of requests for specific sites, so we introduced an optional reservation type for our guests who want to guarantee their site choice. We constantly try to improve on our services and facilities around the campground, and as such pricing does have to be reviewed from time to time. We hope this helps to understand the rates and charges as we appreciate your loyalty to our campground and hope you will continue to enjoy coming here for years to come.

Blankets, pillows, towels, bath mat or extra towel, toaster, pots and pans, spatulas anything you need to cook with. There is nothing to use in the kitchenette. There is a table and chairs and a picnic table outside. Bring wood for fire pit. The little store has quite a few items if you forget anything and in town too.

You can take dogs but can't leave them alone in the cabins or tied up outside!

We have sites that can accommodate 38' 5th wheels with multiple slide. We do our best to clear trees from above and most of our large sites have lots of clearance. I would recommend booking as soon as you know your dates. We have several event weekends in September and is is also peak fall foliage in the Adirondacks. As a result we are quite busy on the weekends.

"Look for a site that is by itself. Some of them connect so there isn't as much privacy."
"In summer ask for lake front"
"Cabins by the lake are lovely, we didn't have any issues with our campsite on a separate stay either - you can't really go wrong!"
"If getting a cabin ask for one near the showers and bathroom!"
"Lakefront is the best. Cottage 1 - perfect little beach spot."
