Hermoso lugar mis niƱos les encanto muchisimo el rio fue fabuloso nunca me himajine que a mis hijos les gustaba romper las rocas para encontrar diamantes el la mina se entretuvieron lo unico malo es que la pisina estaba muy fria que casi no se podia estar con comodidad para disfrutarla

Only complaint is the tight fit of tent sites when music from other campers was heard clearly. However, everyone respected quiet hours

Beautiful campground. Stayed here with some friends to go mining. The campground has everything you need with lots of activities for younger kids. The only negative is that the tent sites are practically on top of each other

I have been going here since I was little and now beginning to start my own family I wanted to take them here and was not disappointed! Loved every second of being there, the improvements have made the KOA so much better and I will be returning throughout the season! Thanks herkimer!!

Staff was great

There are not a lot of campground options in the Herkimer area. The campground was clean and well-staffed with friendly people. Unfortunately, the sites are basically arranged like a trailer park. Whether a tent, RV, or even one of those expensive cabins they have, you are but a couple of steps away from your neighbors. I would prefer pulling off the road randomly and set up camp in the woods.

Beautiful area. Very clean. And you and your kids would love finding 'diamond'

My son's Boy Scout Troop 818 from Enfield, CT made their third return trip - this time in the summer rather than the fall. It was great to balance mining with playing in the pool and tubing in the river. They took advantage of movie night and ice cream. This is their favorite trip with the Troop.

My Girl Scouts had a great experience for their first time! So many fun activities to do on the campground and with the Diamond Mines across the street, you can't ask for much else!

We loved that there were lots of activities going on all weekend!

The large tent sites are so much better than the normal tent sites; you feel like you have so much more room and privacy. We also liked that we were given a list of different events we could choose to attend to.

Had a great weekend camping at this resort. Beautiful site with lots to do for everyone, especially kids. Staff very nice and helpful. Planning to visit again in the near future.

We had a great stay! All the employees were helpful and knowledgeable. The only complaints were how small and close the sites were to each other and it would be nice to have another bathroom closer to the tent sites (at the very end) loved their lotions and soaps in the bathroom! Oh and the shower all the way at the end doesn't get hot

I was impressed with my stay at KOA from check in to check out. The staff was friendly and helpful, the grounds were clean and pristine. Convenient amenities. I plan on camping with KOA again, and I will be sure to recommend it to others !

Took a family of five on a tenting trip over Memorial Day weekend. We had a great time! We especially liked the pool & creek, the tie-dye activity and dance party. The kids favorite activity was the sluice at the mine. Thanks!

We had a great time. Our kids were able to play and had opportunity to participate in many different activities that were scheduled throughout the weekend. The tree house that my friend rented was really cool! We will be going back this season!

First time in a KOA and we were impressed. Solar Cabin was clean and warm. Tent sites were clean. Activities were great for the youth.

I was booked from apr 29- may15 in a tent ! Had about 5 days total with sunshine. The staff were very helpful, the store was stocked with items i needed. The snack bar made it easy to eat without cooking in the rain, and the pancake breakfasts were a great meal for a reasonable price. I had a rope come loose on my tent and i am short and couldn't reach it a staff member came and helped me.

Aside from the goose poop everywhere it was great. Not that you can help the goose poop. :)

The staff were very knowledgeable and friendly. The campsite we were in was AMAZINGLY beautiful and with access to the diamond mines right across the road our family had an amazing time. We will be going back again next month and will be making this a yearly thing.

It was a beautiful location right along the creek. We enjoyed the views and our children loved following the geese and skipping rocks. The only down side was the distance away from the bathrooms with 3 small children. I would think when choosing a tent site and stating the ages of your children the location from the bathrooms and other amenities would be taken into consideration.

site was huge and right on the river, amazing view. Also very convenient to the mine across the street

Very knowledgeable and friendly staff. Excellent and very clean facilities. Definitely a place I will go back with my family. Keep up the great work!!!

bathrooms could be cleaner. tent sites are SO crowded together that i would NEVER stay here during a busy time. each site was half as large as it sthere was dog crap on the main field where the children were playing. AND, there were large depressions in the field, where my son continually fell while running. step it up a bit, people. you're charging an arm and a leg. invest in your business.

This was my Girl Scout Troop's first attempt at tent camping. They cannot wait to go back!! The campground was lovely, very scenic and very clean. There was a wonderful variety of activities available, and we can't wait to return to take advantage of them all. Staff at the campground was pleasant and knowledgeable. Thank you for helping to make our first tent camping great!!

Very nice people at the desk. Great campers, Quiet at night. and the Mines were a BLAST!
Sep 21, 2015
Rude staff made our stay very unpleasant, we were not told about certain activities that were going on or other activities that were available. Are camp sight did not have a grill and when I mentioned it to the staff the women at the desk acted like it was a hassle. We also had a very large group and I asked about a group rate she looked at me like I was stupid. I'm very displeased

Loved out tent site next to the river. Campground was clean and well maintained. Only downfall was that we wish quiet hours would have been monitored & enforced by campground staff.
