Outstanding place

This campground has so much to offer, nice store, pizza place (DELIVERS) , bands, cabins, trails. I loved it the lake was beautiful. As soon as you enter the campground there is someone outside waiting to help you.

Fine camping 1000 islands

NYS may get tons of flack for its politics and politicians. However they're doing it all correct in their state parks. This park is amazing. The views of the ST. LAWRENCE River are amazing. You're around some of the best fishing in the country. We'll. Manicured campground. It's huge by the way. Tons of playgrounds and swimming. Always clean everything. Always friendly staff and campers. Inexpensive I mean really inexpensive. You're 10 min from Alexandria Bay. Boldt castle, singer castle, you can go on river cruises and view these beautiful islands and homes on them. Watch the cargo ships cruise the channel. Electric and water on many sites. Cottages cabins and primitive sites available. Hiking trails all over the park. There's a marina, boat launch and boat rentals. Docking. You can even day trip it use public grills and still enjoy everything the park has to offer. We have so much fun here. It's hard to pack and go home.

Waterfront beauty

Everywhere you look its beautiful Lake Ontario. A campground that should be added to your bucket list.

Very nice TT campground

Very nice thousand trail campgrounds. Very large I believe it's 1300 + sites. We went late summer show it was becoming offseason. Most amenities close down. Pool, swimming at Lake Ontario beach, etc.. well kept campground. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. One staff member Mike told us about Salmon River Falls. We went and it is a "must see" while there. Basically 15 minutes from the campground. That is by RV as we had no toad this time. Mexico Point is another close attraction to see as well. Was first time for my wife that close to any of the finger lakes. She loves it!

D10 and friends

Another large, well maintained and facilitated campground. At least 200 sites with spaces for tents and RVs with electric. Reasonably spread out, some sites are relatively isolated and give the feeling of being in nature and in the woods/by the water while others are more or less in a field. I found the perfect site D10 tucked away at the end of a short driveway directly on the water with a little walk out to a small rocky outcropping perfect for catching the sunset or watching the boats and day go by. Bathrooms were decent and reasonably places, never being too far from anyway. Plenty of water was available throughout. The entire island itself is an interesting area and can be explored by bike to make for a great day of site seeing and local immersion. Alexandria Bay is not far away too and is essentially the only civilization you’ll find around, with plenty of bars restaurants and shops, as well as boat tours around the thousand islands are and to the Boldt Castle. The Boldt castle is an awesome adventure. For about $20 you get a boat ride over and can spend as little or as much time as you want on the island exploring the grounds and the buildings. The history of the building and in the building gives pretty good insight and background to what is and is on Wellesley Island, where you are staying.

One of the state of New York’s best kept secrets

Beautiful lake nice clean showers and bathrooms overall very nice

Limekiln

Good sized sites.Nice clean adk lake to paddle on Not many motorboats Beach was kept clean Showers are old but work Near Inlet for dinner and shopping Black flies are brutal in end of May beginning of June Fireplace was in very bad repair

Love it

Gone here almost every year! We rent the cabin and go to the park every year. make sure you bring a air mattress! You can rent kayaks and paddle boats for like $6 dollars. We also went on a hike which was a lot of fun

Nice

Staff was very helpful! Clean place. Easy to find as well! Prices were a little more expensive but they do a discount for good sams

Nice place

We had fun swimming there. The beach didn’t really have any sand. But had stone steps to walk into the water. They had a life guard on duty. The playground was extremely nice! We will definitely camp there in the future.

Amazing

We will definitely be back! The owners were extremely helpful. We showed up last minute and they fit us in. Super nice! My son loved the playground. Right behind gals ice cream. Park was clean! Bathrooms were nice. We didn’t have any issues at all!

Nice park

Walking areas. Access to water for swimming.

Lovely

Great place. Nice camp store. Access to the water great for boating and swimming. Kring point has islands as well you can jump off the rocks into the water.

Nice

Clean place the cabins were really nice and the pool was very clean.

No hookup

When we got there there was no one in the sign in station. No electricity or water hookups. We reserved online and there was a mix up. We reserved 3 days got there and found out there was no hookups we were told if we cancelled we would only get a few dollars back. Pool looked nice

Great Beach, Electric Sites

This state park is on the site of a lake created by a dam. The waters of the lake covered the old village of Delta in the early 1900's. The park has a boat ramp, beach, some easy hiking, and recently added electricity to all the sites.  Very popular area.

No camping available

Beautiful little park, with an awesome waterfall, but there is no camping available. About 2010, they halted camping there. Maybe you could hike or bike in and snag a quiet spot overnight, but nothing official.

Clean facilities, concrete pad to back in on or pull thru’s 🤙🤙👍👍

One of the finest and looks to be expanding! Clean facility clean pool yes pools! And a TIKI BAR!! It’s rated 10/10 for a reason! Come check it out! Don’t bring groceries either! There is a price chopper with in walking distance!

one of a kind in Adirondack

with a group of 5 stayed in this campground 2 nights for 4th of july weekend, i would love to go back any time i was carefull about the resevation and picked campsite 005 on reserveAmerica website. i wanted a spot next to the water so i could land our kayaks and canoes at the campsite. thanks to this link below i found number 5, secluded and quiet, enough parking sport for two and i think even a good size camper can fit eoth no problem.

highly recommend check your site before you go.

ok first of all, the lake is beautiful and quiet very very clean water you can see the bottom. i have been to multiple lakes in Adirondack, you may confirm one of the cleanests. the water temperature was very reasonable, it was not freezing or very warm, it is within the perfect comfort zone in july.

the campground management provides kayak and canoes with reasonable prices and very laidback about it which is kinda nice, you pay at the enterance and go to the beach and grab your kayak, sef service.

there is a box to keep your gargabe or food from the black bears which was nice.

the campground is very strict abou trhe gargabe though, which can be a problem because there are no garbage dumbsters all over the camp it is only at the enterance , which means better keep your garbage bags clean not punched, torn or anything other wise you may have to drive it leaky bags all the way thru the camp in your cars, we had almost that problem. rules are rules better separate recyclable stuff before you get there.

there was no signal for Tmobile at this yard but the campground has pay phones where all in state numbers are free to call.

Fun for kids

When we pulled in, we felt like outsiders. Many people have seasonal sites and some of the activities are geared toward seasonal campers. We were excited to build a boat out of cardboard and duct tape for the Redneck Yacht Club weekend, but we later discovered that this contest was just for seasonal campers. Bummer. We are going back for Halloween weekend in August and plan to have our kids participate. I’m hoping that they will be able to. Anyway, they have a nice pool. It’s just a little small. The playground is old and outdated, but my kids didn’t seem to mind. The arcade was a bummer. Half of the games did not work. My kids are young enough that they didn’t mind. The staff is really nice. They offered a cute little wagon ride through the grounds and were always friendly and greeted you when they saw you. My five year old, husband, and Dad all signed up for laser tag. They had such an awesome time! That certainly is a fabulous amenity. We will come back for that alone because my son had so much fun. It is $10 per person but so worth it. The sites are close together. I’m used to more of a community vibe when I camp, but people seemed to keep to themselves for the most part. There are camper sites with full hookup, some with just water and electric, And a few electric only. There are also tent sites. The boat launch is kind of run down. There isn’t a dock per se, and the metal dock that is there is unstable. If they developed this area a bit, it would be much for inviting for fisherman and recreational boaters. This isn’t my favorite place, but it’s good for my kids. Very family oriented. Sorry about the people in the pics. I didn’t take any of just the grounds.

Nice place

Nice place to camp all electric no water hook ups bath house clean but could use more

Amazing campground

Amazing prices and pool is incredible, campsites are semi private. Playground is great for the kids.

Cute little campground

Jeff and Jackie run a nice little campground. There is a pool and playground. Clean shower and toilet bath house recently renovated. A lot of pull thru sites. Close to a small farm stand that Jeff tows a hay wagon down to for pumpkin picking in the fall. Great overall campground!

Not at all impressed

I give it a 1 star because the lady at check in was wonderful. Great to work with. Otherwise the park isn’t worth any stars. The sites are tight and difficult to back in if someone is across the road. The bathroom/shower building was filthy and smelled horrible. Also the park is so spread out you have to drive to get to anywhere. I would recommend to not waste your time or money on this park.

Great location on the lake

Nice enough place, nothing great besides the location and an amazing restaurant down the street.

Quiet, Relaxing, on the lake

I Could go on an on about this campground. go check it out!

Beautiful

Very nice rustic camping, amazing location, rocky beach. Love it there

Time to go camping

Clean friendly just a great place to camp

Beautiful area

There were a ton of sites here, but only a handful occupied during a week in midJune. The flies and gnats were kind of bad, but we had a screen room to keep them at bay. Campground was lovely!! Nice variety of sites. We stayed right on the water. The lake was beautiful. Town of Inlet was pretty cute. Friendly staff and very helpful. Rented a canoe for the day and found a patch of carnivorous plants and got up close with several birds on the water.
