The campsite itself left something to be desired. The other amentities however were great and seemed to almost make up for what it was lacking. Still a relaxing place to go if you are in the area.
Delta Lake State Park sits at the foothills of the Adirondack Park, just outside Rome, New York. Pretty and well-kempt, Delta Lake is a nice option for those looking to stay close to home and within proximity to civilization. You can enjoy the great outdoors, while only being a few miles away from a restaurant or grocery store.
The campground isn‘t the best I’ve experienced, a bit on the crowded side-similar to a woodsy suburb- but this could have been distinctive to Loop A where I stayed. I stayed in site 35 and was intermixed with all the campers and RV’s, so it got a bit noisy. Not that restful, secluded experience I typically go for, but I should have planned further in advance.
However, what the park lacked in terms of its campground, it totally made up for in its beach, swimming and picnic areas! This place was awesome for hosting a birthday party for my niece and relaxing at the beach/ day facilities. They have plenty of picnic tables, charcoal grills, a huge beach and locker rooms. This is really a great place to spend a day with your family!
It's very nice, especially if you can get a water site. They have recently added electricity to the sites and a new playground at the beach. The concession stand at the beach will deliver to your camp site.
We go here at least twice a season if not more. Spacious, mostly flat sides. Complete shade and a lot of sites right on the water. Peaceful park with a large beach area. The employees are the very best as well. Overall one of our best experiences camping.
Camped here all the time growing up. We had a 19ft boat and always enjoyed a day. A night in a tent afterward with marshmallows over the fire was perfect.
Stayed in the tent area with mature trees giving plenty of shade even at mid day. Two boat ramps for easy launching and quick retrieval of your motor boats. The beautiful beach is well attended with life guards on duty keeping you safe but still allowing much fun on the very clean white sand. The lake is a flooded area foaming a reservoir stocked with game fish as bass, perch, and pike. There is a very nice playground for the children and ample bathroom facilities including showers. It is opened in the winter months as well for snow mobiles and x country skiing.
