Close to great hikes
I have done tent, cabin and t.v. camping here. a lot of family activity in my favorite place. the outdoor choices are plenty, but the campground is slipping trying to be too much and seems to let the infrastructure slip. it is owned by corporate KOA and it shows that the making money is more important than making it a home away from home that I use to love.. still will come back
the welcome center and store are so cute, sites are well maintained amid everyone is super friendly. there is a secret we discovered the last day. walk to the back of the campground to the Ausable river, go down the path about 500 ft. there is an awesome swimming hole.
Always a great KOA for a family trip
Great campground for the whole family. The area provides a lot of hiking for all ages.
We found this sweet spot perfect for our weekend winter stays to attend our daughter’s collegiate alpine ski races at the hill where the Olympics once were. Clean, cozy and warm can describe our cabin that was on the beautiful river and wooded enough for privacy but close to the mountain and anemities in Lake Placid. Our dog Crawford loved exploring as did we. This is a place where we are planning on some summer and fall weekends to experience the Adirondack’s and have a place to land each day. Highly recommend.
This is the best koa we have been to. Very large campground but quiet for the size. Lots to do, hiking trails within walking distance. Just a short drive to white face mountain and the village of lake placid. The only down fall is some of the site could be a little tricky to back into. We loved it here.
Beautiful campground in the Adirondacks! Lots of little shops in the area to visit. The scenery is so lovely especially the sunrises and sunsets! Make your next camping adventure at this campground. You won't be disappointed!
First time visiting was this past memorial day weekend. mainly to see how my significant other takes to camping along with my two dogs, who i take where ever whenever i can. Main focus of the trip, to fish the ausable. The access from camp is on point.
Lean-tos are life. Hammocks or sleeping on the floor, they're very well protected from the wind. If the weather were more cooperative, we would have setup a tent and utilized the lean-to as "storage" but it all worked out.
I love the new canvas "tents" I'll have to stay in one, one weekend to come.
We all enjoyed our stay and intend to return again!
Great place to start an adventure. Do be aware that you need a bear container if you are backpacking overnight here and it is super important especially for longer trips. A bear bag won't do you much good. Not speaking from experience, but I have heard some stories. this area is beautiful and there are so many great hikes, mountains, and places to experience the outdoors!
