it was awsome like always

For last few years we have been using your campgrounds for a family union. We enjoy ourselves very much during our stay. The accommodations are super and clean. We are looking forward to our next year reunion. See you then.

Great campground, beautiful setting, nice bathrooms - but sites are way too narrow and close together. Having the neighbors inches away really put a damper on our stay.

I registered in March and they still put my 30ft trailer in a spot that it hung over the bank in the back and the hitch was in the road.

Loved being by the water. Our site was rather small but can't beat the location.

as always I am extremely disappointed in the freezing cold pool. w all the solar stuff you have going on at the park you cant figure out how to heat the pool so my children and myself are not freezing??? and for the price I didn't have internet all weekend and I don't feel we should have to pay for watermelon.

Hello...We enjoyed our time mining through the Herkimer mine, our children, ages 8, 10, 12 all enjoyed the experience...so did Mom and Dad. Our camping experience was ok, there were a few late nighter's blowing off some steam. However, our travelling companions'lot got flooded as a result of backwashing the pool and the sewar unfortunately backed up on their site as well...never a good result.

All was great at the KOA, except for our site #96 had a large mud pit on the site. it was difficult with a small child, keeping him from walking through all the mud. The site should be regraded. otherwise everything was great.

We had such an amazing experience. This was by far the BEST camp ground we have ever stayed at. The staff was awesome! The young girl who works there (I cannot remember her name) really seemed like she loved her job. She did the Bingo, served ice cream and did the jewelry making on Sunday (August 1-3 2014). We have already made plans to come next year!! AMAZING!

Friendly and helpful staff, clean bathrooms and showers,fun activities and facilities for the kids. We highly recommend the Herkimer KOA!

Nous avons loué une cabine deluxe. Le drain du lavabo ne coulait pas bien et nous n'avions aucune couverture chaude. Comme il a fait froid toute la nuit, nous avons tous gelé. Il me semble que des couvertures chaudes (blankets) devraient être fournies! Mais le site était enchanteur et la cabine très propre.

This campground was fantastic!

Bathrooms were dirty. The toliets were full & clogged all day. Other than that very nice family friendly place. All we called for the honeywagon they told us by 10 am then noon then 2pm. finally at 3pm we went up and complained they came right down.

What a great KOA. Friendly, clean and great activities. I also LOVED the green space and gardens. What a nice job. Hope they do not add too many more sites as it will cut down on green space. Bring inner tubes for lazy river and safety glasses for mining.

We stayed in a Kamping Kabin. The mattress on the double bed was horrible - too soft and lumpy and stained with who knows what. The bathrooms were clean and convenient although could use more hooks near the sinks.

Facilities were dirty. WiFi was dissappointing (even for email). I expect more from a KOA.
Aug 02, 2014
The deluxe cabin was comfortable and provided more amenities than we expected. The cabin was clean and pet friendly. We actually booked an extra night while we were there - the kid were having a great time!

This was my first stay at a KOA. I hope to return and do it again.

We (3 adults) arrived very late, got settled into the cabin even later. The wilderness showed it's nocturnal side under our cabin. By 8:30 a m, we were changing cabins and sleeping better. Staff is EXCELLENT, as is the campground! BRB!
Aug 02, 2014
The campground is great and very family oriented. The garden area was nice. We had a nice time. The only negative would be that the cabins chould be cleaned just a little bit better. The cabin wasn't filthy where we didn't want to stay in it, but it could have been dusted a little bit more. Crumbs where left from the toaster in the cabinet,and a few small things leftover from the previous ppl.
Aug 02, 2014
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff was extremely helpful. We will definitely recommend this campground to family and friends.

stay on the river. nice
Aug 02, 2014
Nice clean CG. Friendly staff. A little pricey for a CG. Site became a muddy mess in rain storm all the water ran under rug and awning. A built up pad would have helped this. The river in back was very nice. Found more Diamond's along the river than in the mine, maybe we came at the wrong time of year. Some one at the mine told me they only blast once a year in the spring.

Muddy campsites could use gravel bed. Hard to determine where your site is and no staff to lead you to the site. Sites along creek are VERY narrow, more so then any other KOA that we have stayed at.

I wish we were able to stay for more than the one night we had booked. The grounds were beautiful - a little slice of heaven tucked into New York state.

The whole campground was clean and well kept. We particularly enjoyed visiting the diamond mines across the road...several times!

Nice facility and friendly staff.

Nice camp ground. Great people. Wish the camp sites were a little bigger. Two things to improve: 1. The geese need to be controlled more; they leave a mess. 2. it would be nice if the bathrooms were cleaned more than once a day. They are really dirty by 6 PM.

It's a great family camping site. The fresh mountain air and child friendly river is a great way to ease kids into camping. The cabins are nice if your not into tents. Definitely will go back next summer!

you have a very clean friendly area, also very quiet at night time. easy pull through camp sites. wonderful.
Jul 31, 2014
Love the location along the river, but sites are extremely close together. We were there on a weekday- bathrooms definitely could have used more attention.

Great place to stay if you are going to go to the Herkimer Diamond mine! Lots of choices for accommodations. The cabins are adorable. The soil is very sandy so be prepared to sweep your camper's floor every day.

I rented a "Deluxe Cabin". Disgusted by cleanliness of unit.Bathroom-black mold in shower stall&curtain & sink stopper so coated with waste that it"couldn't" fit into drain.Freezer so frosted door could not shut- bottom 2 shelves of refrigerator were not cold.Floors-dirt & debris from previous tenants under bed & couch.Dangerous conditions @ pool-no monitoring/enforcement of posted rules.

Nice creek site. Although too many geese and their droppings throughout camping area. On the positive aspect, great activities for kids. Diamond mine was awesome, found nice diamonds that we had made into necklace and earrings! Loved browsing in the Diamond mine store, many reasonable souvenirs.the spin art t- shirt a big hit with granddaughter! She's already talking about next year!😸

Disappointed with attitude of staff at check-in and overall staff's lack of friendliness. Campground was nice.
Jul 29, 2014
The kampground itself was good, but our deluxe cabin was quite dark, old and musty.

I have stayed at this KOA four years in a row, it gets better everytime, such a beautiful location. The facilities are clean the property is so well kept. Congrats on all the hard work that is put in for others to enjoy. It takes us 5 hours to get there and it is worth every minute of the trip. Can't wait for next year!

Excellent. Fun. Friendly. Clean.
Jul 29, 2014
We loved the site with the patio with a swing and table with umbrella. It was great not to have to bring our gas grill. It made packing up much easier.
Jul 29, 2014
This is the 2nd time that we have stayed at Herkimer KOA. As we found the 1st time, the kampground is excellent.RV park.

Peak season cabin rentals are a bit pricey
