The grounds were absolutely beautiful and there was a lot for children to do.

clean, friendly staff, great site next to the river!

In general our stay was very enjoyable. There were some small issues. Coffee pot very dirty, window screens in poor condition. Television did not work properly. Those things aside the cabin was cozy and staff was very accommodating and friendly. I would stay again, but would have a staff member enter cabin with me to make sure that it's in good repair. The Herkimer diamond mine was so much fun!

Great science activities for kids.

We had a great stay at this KOA it was our 4th visit there. Tubing is always a favorite activity. We got rained out the last night but that is the weather this summer.

In spite of the weather, we had a nice stay. There was some questionable smoking activity at the cabin near us, so it greatly limited our time outside our cabin, but I would not hold that against KOA. The situation was reported at check out and in time, the odor of their activity has finally left my car and belongings. Over all, we have stayed here before, and would be happy to do so again in the

Campground is nice and the adjacent mine is very convenient. However, very disappointed with rest rooms - some were being worked on while others were locked, Once unlocked one of the restrooms had a burned out light and you could not see anything once the door was closed. Used dump station and wash down water was unusable, piping leaked and sprayed all over - staff said had been this way awhile

Campsite was the only one without a layer of gravel. 75% of the site was mud and huge puddle for most of the time as it rained on and off. Screens on windows needed repair. Screen on door and also a nail caught onto our pants ( tore one pair) and scratched us. We were disappointed that there were no T-Shirts, Hoodies, or sweatpants at the camp store. Not the favorable experience we had years ago.

Only stayed one night but it was quiet and the staff was very accommodating.

we felt the man we talked to on the phone and who we dealt with at check in was not that friendly or cared weather we stayed there or not. We realize that it had been raining but the bathrooms were really bad.

I am part of a group that has been going there the same time every year for the last 12 years. Lots of good times, hope we have a 20th there.

Overall our family had a great time at this KOA. My daughter loved the many activities planned. The employees were very kind to my kids. However, the RV sites are extremely close to each other and the sites alternate between back-in and pull-in. Another downfall are the bathrooms. They are modern, but not kept up.

Had a great time. It rained a lot but did not matter. My family had so much fun that we booked a Cabin for the same time next year. Great place for kids.
Jul 01, 2015
It was only an overnight, but very comfortable and the staff were all very sweet and friendly and quick to help.

Location is great, amenities are unique, and the sites are all well maintained. The only unfortunate thing was that our sewer connection backed up causing black water to reverse flow onto the site. My assumption is that this was due to the amount of rainfall experienced but this will need to be taken care of.

Bathrooms not cleaned regularly. Enjoyed mining

We enjoyed our recent stay very much even though it rained Saturday evening thru our checkout on Sunday. The tube rides on the river were great. The camp ground was very clean and neat. Thanks.

We love the Herkimer KOA. Our favorite place to stay with the kids. The staff is awesome. Always kind and so helpful. The gentleman that ran the pavilion counter was the best!
Jul 01, 2015
Not many electric/water available on most of sites. Clean and fantastic to watch river flowing. Too bad for us to stay when the weather constantly raining during our staying.

we had a great time love camping at koa's

Only KOA in area when traveling on Rt 90. Men's bathroom by pool was blocked for use on 4th of July week of all times. Other bathroom was so muddy from all the rains. Picnic table too filthy to wipe off for tablecloth. But we will stay there again when traveling, as we have done in the past.

We just did an overnight. We had a nice, little spot that was a pull thru as it was my 2nd time towing the camper. After roughing it for 2 nights with no water or electric or showers, it was SO nice to take a hot shower, turn on the heat to push out the damp & cold and sleep for nearly 12 hours uninterupted. We'll return some day to explore the area.

The only thing that really needed improvement was the cleanliness of the bathrooms and showers.

My family and I stayed in the Deluxe KT4 creekside cabin. Absolutely perfect! Bunk beds for the kids, pull out couch for my husband and I, pristine kitchenette and bathroom. We enjoyed the patio for grilling and gathering. Our own personal fire pit was a highlight of our stay. Kids loved the pool, of course, and the proximity to the mines couldn't be better.

Nice helpful staff!

This is our 2nd year here. We live locally, and have many options for camping elsewhere, but when we began planning our trip this year, we decided to stay here again...and will definitely be returning next year! The staff is so helpful and friendly. One staffer we saw multiple times stopped his truck to fix the wheel on my son's bike & later offered me his own poncho when I got caught in the rain!

Very nice, plenty to do on your own & many activities for kids provided by staff. Always a pleasant experience...(4 yrs & counting) thank you!

This campground was very enjoyable despite less-than-perfect weather. We rented the astronomy lodge and were not able to use it at all. I did note a problem with the telescope that hopefully the management corrected quickly for following visitors. This campground could use a few more scheduled activities.
Jun 29, 2015
Super clean, very friendly and great unique accommodations! Thank you!
Jun 29, 2015
Staff was great. Wish people would.observe no smoking and not have staff chasing them around. Staff was on top of things.
Jun 29, 2015
It was my first time at a KOA and my whole family is talking about next year at KOA.
Jun 28, 2015
Tent sits are REALLY close together! Bathrooms are good; maybe they can be cleaned more than once a day??
Jun 28, 2015
The cabin and grounds were well kept and clean. The cabin we rented probably is due for a little work - mattress was too soft, futon cover was worn - but overall very nice.
Jun 28, 2015
love it.

We had a very enjoyable stay at the campground. Very clean and well kept bathrooms and shower areas.We loved the campsite on the creek bank with the pleasant sound of the water. Also enjoyed the well kept grounds and raised bed garden area with the very interesting facts and info about each vegetable or herb. We would recommend this campground to all of our friends.
