We booked a Cabin for our Stay and Play at the Water Safari. The Websites for both could be better. I am a researcher and really only got the "insider facts" from reviews. Driving through Old Forge was great. It is a very quaint walking town. Check In was fast and efficient. The waiver you sign regarding the Bears is...

Thank you for your review Stacey. For future visits, we do offer overnight security, who can and do respond to any and all guest issues after the main lodge is closed at 10:00 pm. Their number can be located in the Gazette you are given and it is pointed out to guests at the time of check in. They could...

My family of two adults and two teens stayed at this camp ground for two nights. The atmosphere was bustling and welcoming when I arrived to check in at the lodge in the rain. The woman who checked us in was patient and helpful as I weighed the option of changing from our tent site reservation to a cabin. We...

This campground was wonderful. The staff was friendly and helpful, workers raked and cleaned campgrounds immediately upon checkouts, they came immediately when we called about an issue. The amenities are good - clean showers, nice store, laundry room, a pretty lake in the middle of the campground, though internet was only available at the office/store. Close to Old Forge, with...

So glad you enjoyed your recent stay! Our staff works literally around the clock to provide the best possible camping experience. Our location is perfect for families looking to enjoy the beauty of the Adirondacks and still have the convenience of being close to town.

Our family has been coming here for over a decade. The staff is friendly and courteous, especially Jim. The sites are clean and quiet. Water safari is within walking distance, or you can take a shuttle bus. Bears don't seem to be a problem if you keep food locked up, along with keeping your cars locked at all times. My...

Thank you for the review Roxanna! You are correct, the wild life is not a problem if you conduct yourself the way you do. Keeping food and coolers picked up will prevent unwanted encounters.

Thank you for the nice review. Our Halloween weekends are fantastic family fun for everyone, and foliage that time of the year can be breathtaking. If you haven't tried the cottages yet you really should. One cannot beat the convenience of have the bathroom and kitchen at your immediate disposal. If you visit during our value season the cottage rates...

We camped at this "resort" this past weekend and boy we're we in for a treat. We checked in Saturday morning and set up our tents. After having an exhausting day of traveling to old forge, getting the camp squared away, swimming and hiking - we laid down to go to bed at around 11:00pm. That's when the fun begins...

Thank you for taking the time to review our campground. A quick call to security could have resolved your issue with the late night disruptions from other people. The behavior you are describing is inappropriate and would have been handled immediately by our team. The bears do frequent the campground and our team will make every effort to run them...

We stayed here 3 years ago for 2 nights and didn't enjoy it. However we were coming through, going to the water park and thought we'd give it a 2nd chance for 1 night.

Sorry you did not enjoy your recent stay with us. Booking a pull through site limits our options as we only have a handful of these sites. We have many water and electric sites that are very large, level, and more private. Anytime you are here and you are dissatisfied with your site, stop by the main lodge and let...
