Really nice, fairly large campground. Good for larger rigs. Lots of smaller ones, as well as pop ups and tents. Cabins were busy also. Great hiking, biking, kayaking nearby. Campground trail to the river with falls and flume. Dog trail and small dog park. Lots for kids to do as well. We had a level site, with good hookups. Wifi... More

This KOA has everything. Although the girl at check in expressed dismay that I was 30 min early for check in I was on my site, setup and exploring within 20 min of arrival. The staff was always checking and cleaning everywhere. We had an extended stay here to explore Lake Placid and area. The campground is about 15 min... More

Stopped by to visit whiteface mountain. Found this gem. The staff is fantastic, the campground is clean and the showers are hot. My favorite secret is the hiking path to the 2 story rock you can jump onto the river from. This is the perfect spot for any outdoor enthusiasts.

Nice large wooded sites, even the pull through sites. Nice clean heated pool, at least 2 playgrounds. Very nice lodge with a fireplace upstairs and wrap around deck with a view of whiteface mountain. Campground is right on the ausable river, for wading or fishing. Wonderful Adirondack experience.

We enjoyed this campgrounds woodsy atmosphere and child friendly amenities. The lots were quite large so there was room for the six of us to spread out. Also, plenty of room to tie the dogs out as well. Our girls enjoyed the putt putt, swimming pool and gift shop. There's also a pet trail and dog play area. We enjoyed... More

Wonderful KOA. Lots of kid friendly events and activities. We stayed at the site P13, right near the wooden playground. The kids age 5 and 7 were able to walk to it while we unpacked and relaxed. We were very happy there.

This place is AaaHhhhmazing! Besides how great the layout and location are, the staff is very helpful and friendly. This campground is spotless, staff works tirelessly to keep it clean.

If you want to Cano but without roughing it too much (say, with a baby), this is a great choice. Between the pool, the hay ride, the easy hiking trail, the playground, the snack shack, etc, there is lots to keep the little ones occupied. It's also lovely to have bathrooms with running water. My only complaint is the highly... More
