Got a site by stream but it was bare earth. Most other sites were grassy and nice.

we had a great stay and enjoyed looking for diamonds. When we left we had your breakfast it was hot and filling and was great that all the money was giving to the koa cancer camp.

We had a camp site right on the water and it was beautiful. The bathrooms were kept clean throughout the day, which is a must for us. The people were very friendly and helpful. Our children had a great time in the pool. We had a fantastic time.

We absolutely loved it. The campground was so nice and clean, well kept, as was our cabin. The staff was great too, went above & beyond. The only disappointment was that we had rented the astronomy cabin, which was wonderful, but... the staff seemed unable to get the telescope going. They came back several times and they really tried, but in the end, we never got to use it. Otherwise - flawless!

The people at the front desk were extremely helpful! The solar cabin we stayed in was clean and spacious. There were many things for the kids to do. We will definitely be back and will recommend to friends!

Wonderful place and wonderful people that works there. My family and I had a wonderful time. The kids are already planning on next year's trip back.

Diamond mines across the street had rude workers. I asked for 2 kabins in the middle (5or6) next to each other in way back in April and were booked 5 and 7. Fire grates are a must and the site accommodated. My brother busted his leg behind the Kabins on Thursday and not a single employee asked if he was ok and when we called the overnight phone# to explain they did not care

We camped with 2 other families for 3 nights. We each had our own camp site. Not every campsite had a fire pit. The bathrooms were not very clean and could use some updating. There didn't seem to be any hot or even warm water for a shower. We tried at different times of the day for that. There does not seem to be a quiet time policy in place. People were quite loud into the middle of the night.

We had a great time at the Herkimer Dimond KOA. Your camp gound is very nice and clean. The staff was very helpful. We enjoyed our stay very much. Even though our grandson brought the bug with him and was sick for one night. Of course Grand Pa caught the bug for another night. We still had a great time. We will be back for some tubing, mining, and a more good times. For sure. Thank You, Ken Der

I love staying at this campground. There are so many things to do for the whole family. There's tubing down the river, swimming in the pool, mining for diamonds of course, and many activities set out by the KOA itself to partake in. We've met people that have become lifelong friends from other states that have vowed to come back next year with us. And let's not forget the staff...great!

We had a great time. What a wonderful camping experience. Have already recommended you to friends.

the only improvement I can think of is the need for a better selection of products at store otherwise excellent.

live close by and this site is perfect for me as an easy reach for camping. the facility is always clean and the people are very friendly. I will continue to return many times.

Our stay at Herkimer KOA was great...we loved it there...we camp all the time and our whole group said that this was one of the best campgrounds we've stayed at. My only recommendation is to upgrade the playground and include slides. The wooden one is falling apart and is a risk.

We enjoyed our stay but would have preferred to be along the water. Our daughter really enjoyed the panning! Did want to suggest having the DJ later than 3pm. Surely there would be more participation if they had played later in the day, early evening? Thanks Deidre Scutt

Packed too tightly for our taste. Facillities are good, clean. Just to crowded for us.

I enjoyed my stay very much. The staff was very friendly. Only drawback the toilet in the mens room wouldn't flush properly.. I'd come back for sure.

Awesome activities for the the kids and the family! Gorgeous view! The staff was fantastic!

This was a very nice campground, amenities were nice and staff was pleasant. The weekend we were there there were a lot of people and bathrooms kept getting really messy - they tried hard to keep up with the restrooms.
Aug 26, 2013
We liked our cabin and the activities - tubing, flashlight candy hunt, bingo. Our cabin did not have a bathroom. We liked the idea of having access to private bathrooms with a key - however, we did not like that so many other campers (not in cabins) were using the bathrooms as the doors were often left unlocked.

Best Campground ever!!!!!

Best campground that I've stayed at in years.
Aug 26, 2013
We had a fantastic time! We stayed with family and friends in sites across from us. They were also very happy with their stay. Bathrooms and showers were very clean with lots of hot water. The sites were spacious. Lots of activities including an astronomy lesson! The river was a great plus. Tubing and fishing were a lot of fun. Thank you! We will be back.

The bathrooms by the office were absolutely disgusting!! The campground was almost completely sold out and with the number of people staying, they need to cleaned several times a day. Even at 9:00 a.m. the next day they were just as disgusting, didn't get cleaned till late morning. I love going to the Herkimer Diamond mine and it is a very nice campground overall.

Water pressure was very low at our Site #115. People cut across our site all the time between the store and their sites..talking all the way. Not much privacy. We visited the Diamond Mine and it looks like new areas are not turned over so we did not find but 5 very small diamonds and broke rocks for 5 hours. Had a good time doing it though.

Met many nice and helpful people. Staff was extremely accommodating to us changing our site. Area was very clean and Kamp K-nine was great for our dog. We will definitely come back.
Aug 26, 2013
I only gave you a one because of the nice pool.the rest needs help bathrooms filthy and to far apart and not enough of them.our campsite site wasnt clean when we arrived .only thing this place has going for it is the diamond mine kids loved it
Aug 26, 2013
Everything was great, except for the bathrooms. By saturday night the garbage was over flowing, the shower were gross, and the the floors were wey and littered with garbage. I think the should be cleaned more than oncr a day because noy all of us have campers wwith bathrooms. Everything else was wonderful.

Awesome again thank you
Aug 26, 2013
The bathrooms and showers were so gross we tried not to use them, garbage can overflowing in it. If they can't keep up hire more people, it's a very big campground. I prefer ones in the west, they do a better job!

Had a lovely campsite by the creek and had a great time. Staff was helpful and informative. Already made a reservation for next year. One thing I miss at this KOA is fire wood being delivered. That is a very helpful service
Aug 25, 2013
This was our third stay and for the first time, we were disappointed with the size of the site we had and the cleanliness of the washrooms. We do love the location and the staff are always friendly.
Aug 24, 2013
We loved the campground. Felt very comfortable there. Everyone was courteous and helpful. Would recommend it to anyone.

Cabin could have been a bit cleaner but overall a good experience.
