Decent campground

The staff are very friendly and the campground is clean. The just remodeled one of two playgrounds in the camp. There is a lot to do for kids including a pool, jumping pillow, miniature golf and a train ride. There a lot of popular events such as an ice cream social and tie dying. Most weekends have themes. The only issue I have are some of the campers. They were filthy and rude. After the Friday night movie they left all their trash on the ground. The kids were riding their bikes on the bathroom handicap ramp. The kids were screaming at the pool and all over. One got hurt at the pool and an adult with the group told them no more horsing around even though he was the one who started it. It’s right off a major highway so you have noise including sirens. There are many places to visit around the area if you enjoy “doing the tourist thing”. Some tent sites are on the smaller side but most are good size. I’ll be honest, I only go to KOA for my son but I find this is one of the better ones. We were in T9 and T8 but we have also camped in T17 ( my favorite).

Good but a little boring

I like this campground because it is close to home.  There isn't much to do here within the campground.  It has two areas.  The one nearer the camp entrance is smaller than the second.  The second one has a playground while the first one does not.  I would not recommend the first area if you have small children for this reason.  The playground is being revamped and looks awesome so far.  Unfortunately the bathroom right next to it is closed while the playground is being updated.  It is very hilly but many people enjoy riding their bikes here.  When driving, be careful of them.  I've hiked the trails and you have to be careful. They aren't always well maintained or marked.  They are right next to the main highway so you get car noise and can usually see them as well.  I find them to be uninteresting.  There is no swimming on site either.  On the positive side, the campground is within driving distance of great fishing, biking and tourist areas.

Not my favorite

I can't really complain too much about the campground.  The staff was friendly and helpful although I came in after an eight hour drive and totally exhausted.  I wasn't happy when they charged me almost the full price of our stay (yeah, I forgot about that but I didn't have the credit card it was supposed to go on).  Then they charged me $10 for a fob to let me in the gate after hours.  Not quite sure how that was supposed to work since half the time the gate wasn't manned anyway.  At least we got our money back for it but it was one more expense I wasn't expecting. It was frustrating.  The pond was disgusting.  I wouldn't swim in it.  Trash was all over the edge of the pond.  My son and I cleaned up after some guests.  The sites weren't marked.  I drove by our site and had to ask another guest where it was.  The campground is mostly long-term campers.  Most have decks and shrubbery surrounding their rv's.  There were even a couple of mobile homes.  Saturday night was horrible as the golf carts kept going up and down the street until around midnight.  Fortunately, everyone left the next day and the campground was very pleasant to stay in.  The frogs were a hoot and we woke every morning to the cows at the farm next door.  Loved the two pools and the creek.  Nice little snack bar inside the store and office.  Just wish the office opened earlier.  We left at 8 before anyone was there and had to have our refund mailed.  Would I stay there again?  No.  I much prefer state campgrounds.

Quiet campground

Roomy campsites. Many have views of Lake Ontario. It's real quiet there as most people fish or go visit tourist areas in nearby Niagara Falls. There are plenty of playgrounds for the kids and the roads are flat--perfect for bike riding. The only downside is that there is no beach but your pass gets you into Hamlin Beach State Park which DOES have a beach. This is one of my favorite campgrounds.
