Wonderful campground

Family owned/operated. Went during Covid restrictions in August 2020. The gentleman who runs the place was wonderfully helpful in questions about the area. The campsites are decent sized if a bit close together for tents. However they were also assigned at the front and placement of campers was well separated to account for the covid restrictions. Town was close by but also removed enough to give the great camping experience without needing to drive miles to get forgotten supplies. People camping there were pleasant as well as respectful of the additional rules. The dog also enjoyed his time there immensely, very dog friendly.

Gorgeous setting

The rave reviews about the bath house were spot on. Only real complaint I had was the black flies (bring bug spray, I don’t normally get bit) were not too plentiful but still itchy. The campsites in the loop near the boat launch were abandoned except for my group. They did say they are pretty strict on nighttime noise guidelines by dogs, but otherwise very dog friendly.

Beautiful lake

Camped during Covid restrictions. Everyone seemed to be following the guidelines that were clearly posted by the campsite. The snack bar in the office/shop area was a great fallback plan if we were too lazy to cook, but wasn’t needed. People who ran the place were very accommodating. For some reason our fire ring and table were missing when we arrived, and they had replacements at the site within 30 minutes. They also delivered our wood to our campsite when I asked about where to purchase it while they delivered the missing items. Campsites were roomy enough, but set a bit close together.

Big sites

The campground was nicely maintained and space was restricted between sites due to Covid. Firewood wasn’t available at the camp, had to drive about a mile to grab some. Close to town so easy to grab needed items. It was situated right across the Hudson River from a highly active nighttime freight train route, and the noise from the horns and then being awake for a few minutes as the train clattered by. The sites were spacious enough to allow for two cars each and probably 3 tents each (saw this at one site). Rangers running the place were pleasant and informative.
