We are seniors and probably are better off in a park that has fewer youngsters. Very convenient park and we were pleased with our stay. We did have a problem with low water pressure for all three days.

We loved this campground. Our boys 14, 12 had fun at the mine and especially tubing in the river. This campground was clean considering all of the river dirt. Workers very nice!

There were 30 family members and friends and everyone had a wonderful time.

We had a great and relaxing stay. Lots of activities during the day, but quite later in the evening when its time for bed. A beautiful KOA! See you again next year for the 2014 Boilermaker.

We have camped here for several years and have always enjoyed ourselves. We love to tube on the creek and some enjoy going to the pool. We have pets and enjoy having the Pet area to let them loose. As a suggestion it would be nice to have a better access point into the water from above the cabins.

Beautiful campground, very nice employees. June in particular was very helpful. The days were very hot, and the pool was where my kids wanted to be. Can't wait to go back when my son is old enough to tube the river, and stay in the Astronomy cabin!

The sites are very close. Our neighbors had 4 cars and 17 people on their site. They were parting about 2 feet from our trailer. Very loud weekend.

Our stay was great,never had a bad one.

We have stayed at the Herkimer KOA numerous times. It seemed different this time in that the staff seemed somewhat preoccupied. In the past you would see staff ride around and greet guests but that did not happen.The bathroom near the pool was not as clean as in the past.

We would have preferred not facing strangers while camping. We camp to get away from the company of others. I know the weather had been horrific but apparently sites aren't check after someone leaves as it was obvious the site next to use had been occupied by someone with children because things weren't picked up. The site on the other side of us was way to small & probably should not be occupied.

bad restrooms and cleaning times

It is on the river. The river is high due to rains and flooding was a concern to us.

Our stay itself was okay, but unfortunately, when we arrived we were told that we could not camp in the site we reserved because of the type of camping equipment we had. I booked a tent site and called ahead to make sure that was okay since we had a travel trailer, the woman I spoke with stated that was no problem. However, when we arrived we were told we couldn't put the camper there. Sad.

The campground was very nice and the person who checked us in very helpful. I was a bit surprised that someone in a golf cart did not lead us to our site, especially since it required backing in.

We used this KOA for a rest while travelling thru. The sites and staff were great! Our children enjoyed the pool and play structure.

Clean, friendly. Only stayed for a night and it was hot (94 degrees) but the hydro was good and we were able to cool down the camper which was great! My daughter stayed there last year and enjoyed it.

This is our fourth year at this KOA. In the past, our stay has been very enjoyable, especially for our 8 year old son. This year, we were extremely disappointed with many of the activities - hayride (no hay, VERY fast driving)tie dye(son not allowed to do himself) candy hunt (VERY little candy and not spread out lots of disappointed kids). Very disorganized and staff NOT up to the past standards.

Had good experience at campground. Flexible staff allowed us to pick our site. Granddaughter had fun prospecting for diamonds. Stayed two nights on our way East and decided to return for two nights on our way back home. Nice that river is so close, but that it was too big and fast to go tubing because of recent rains.
Jul 18, 2013
the kids(ages 24,21,14,12) had a blast, we couldn't count how many trips up the river/tubing. The mining was also a lot of fun and we definitely found some keepers.
Jul 17, 2013
As always had a great time.

The kids loved the onsite "diamond" mine adventure.

Beautiful location near the river with rapids for tubing, with new and well maintained facilities. Great find! We will return. Dan

We spent a weekend here, and completely enjoyed our stay. The pool was clean and refreshing, the restroom were clean, and the staff was friendly and welcoming. Even with the sites as close as they were to one another, the campground was very quiet and relaxing.

A+ campground

Nice campground - well kept. Pretty quiet. We were there for a full week - other campers came and went. Seemed to be a stop-over on their travels. Not a super lot to do but for a relaxing time - it was good.

could not use free wifi, not enough band width, sewer hook up and power hook up on wrong side of camper

The sites were very close together, offering little or no privacy. While we were eating dinner the wagon came around to empty our neighbors septic. Spray from the septic got on our table. Nobody monitored quiet hours and people were up yelling and playing basketball right across from us.

We enjoyed staying at your campground. Staff was very friendly and campgrounds were excellent.

Very nice Clean. Will visit again.

Never gave me my KOA discount even though the clerk looked my card. I had to call later. Never gave us an activity list for the week. The ice cream freezer remainded near empty. Had to ask the goose poop to be scoped up the the campground people. Not to happy of a camper this time around.
Jul 13, 2013
Sites too small on creekside, sewer connections to close to neighbors patio. Pet area needed mowing, trash can in area overflowing. Sites along creek needed mowing and trimming. Not up to par for KOA. No supplies in store. Shelves were empty.
