Great camp

Staying here is great! You’ve got fishing either in 2 private lakes or you can fish in the river but to do the river you’ll need a New York State fishing license. There are playgrounds for the kids, basketball, pool and a remote control car track. We stayed in the “ overflow” are several times and it is very nice.

Okay campground, very tight fit for large rigs, and a bit rundown

So this campground was a mixed bag for us. We enjoyed the activities, and the site itself was nice, but there were some definite issues. Positives: There are lots of things to do in the park, especially for kids, as many other reviews have discussed. The lots are large and nicely wooded with working full hookups and good water pressure. Negatives: Roads: We have a large 5th wheel RV, and we were assured that it would fit. It did- technically. We were within 2 inches or less of trees on 4 or 5 instances getting in and out of our site, and I had to drive off of the road on several occasions to make it through. We are used to a tight fit in RV parks, but this was over the top. They need to clear some of the roads if they are going to accommodate rigs over 40'. Activity equipment: So although there were tons of activities and playgrounds, unfortunately a lot of the equipment was run down or not working. The arcade only had a few games that actually still worked, and at least 2 of the playgrounds need to be torn down because they are in such bad shape. Permanent campers: It seemed like at least half of the sites were occupied by permanent or semi-permanent residents, as they had structures built around their rigs, lots of decorations, etc. In some cases, it looked like the rigs were owned by people who came in on the weekend, or stayed part-time, and most of those RV's were fine. However, there was a significant number of people who obviously lived in their run-down RV's, and those sites were invariably filled with junk and were poorly kept. Additionally, some of the"permanent" residents rode circuits around the park in their golf carts, and were very unfriendly towards us. Booking site: Online booking is not done through the park's website, instead you are directed to a 3rd party site that requires a separate account and is very difficult to navigate. It contained a few dead links and required the booking party to sign several online forms about campsite rules, but some of the required signature areas didn't actually contain any forms. You were just signing a blank area in the site with no associated info. The site then required some sort of approval process for the booking to be confirmed. I received an email that the approval was partially completed, and then never got anything else. I had to call the site to confirm my reservation went through. I also never received any kind of check-in info prior to arrival. We camped at Rip Van Winkle Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
