We had an issue upon arrival, where our site did not match our reservation. The staff corrected this promptly, and were very nice. Overall the campground is beautiful. Bathrooms some of the cleanest ive seen. Activities were good.

Large area and nice open area. The Very Long Path is next to the campground. Walked to the Cider works and enjoyed their varies Ciders. Also went to the local Museum and the Dam. Very pretty area.

Sites were clean, new shower houses are great. There were several vehicles not adhering to the 5 mph speed limit, some appeared to be the workers for the campground. Biggest complaint is having to hike up that hill to register upon arrival. That is very inconvenient, especially for us older folk. That needs definite improvement. Overall we had a nice quiet week and met some nice people.

Two couples, no kids and one dog. Very clean, well maintained campground. Pool area was nice, we had a lot of sun so was thankful for the covered lounge chairs. Large site next to open area so we got in a lot of stargazing. Can’t say enough about this KOA, would definitely recommend to alll! We will be back soon.

Our rv side was not level and had very deep holes. We had to put blocks under our jacks to somehow level our rv. The sewer cover is missing.

Our stay was great the only thing that needed more attention was that the garbage dumpsters in the 500 section were in dire need of emptying. They were so full that people were leaving their bags on the ground and on top of them. You couldn't put another bag in them.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for taking the time to review our park. Our apology for the trash bin on that level. We do also provide on 300 as well as 2 on the 100. We will address holidays earlier in the future. We are glad you enjoyed your stay otherwise and look forward to seeing you again soon.

First site was a bit soft for our rig.No problem.Office moved us right away and apologized. Sites were good sized and clean could use some gravel but I know they are working on the campground. The stumps from tree removal would be helpful if ground down. Our friends site had a good size one that was semi flush cut. But was not easy to navigate around. Great band on Saturday night. River was nice

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your review-unfortunately we have had a very wet springs but happy we could accommodate with a dryer site. We are a heavily wooded campground and do our best to manicure areas trees have been removed. The Schoharie is beautiful and we are pleased you enjoyed.

Nice large site with plenty of room between sites. Staff was very pleasant and accommodating. Cable was excellent, could say the best we've ever had. Large Park and spread out. The park is several miles from highway and secluded. The downside of the resort is check in is not convenient, you must park and walk quite a distance back to office. Can't comment on activities as we were there off season

This campground has always been beautiful and relaxing but now that it's a KOA it's even better - nearby Rockland Cider Works a plus, lots of stuff to keep kids happy.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you! We are working hard to make this a fun family park with many things here to do as well as there are some amazing places close to us to visit and hike and enjoy for all ages. We look forward to your next visit!

Someone brings you to your site and assist in backing you in, Wood and ice delivered to your camp site, clean well managed. I have stayed there several times before the only thing I have bad to say is the site I had this time the site was small and felt crowded however it hasn't been the case in prior visits.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you we appreciate your kind words and recognition of our hard working staff. Sorry the site was not your usual - please have us check when you make your reservations if you prefer a certain site - we will try hard to accommodate. We look forward to seeing you again very soon!
May 29, 2024

We stayed for Memorial Day weekend. The staff around the campground was exceptional, very courteous, very outgoing and polite. The campground was extremely clean. The sites were large enough that you did not feel cramped. Rated 3 due to customer service upon arrival. Lady in the office not so nice, short, & just rude. You pay a lot to camp here, you look for a warm welcome! Much improvement needed

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are sorry you did not feel you experienced a warm welcome upon arrival. We are coaching that staff member to be more friendly even when overwhelmed. Holiday weekends we need to be efficient but friendly. I hope you will come vist us again. This particular staff member is actually very sweet.

We go there 2-3 times during the summer for the last 4 years. It is an awesome place, amazing location. This year there are some updates, like wi-fi and a new WC/shower station in the 6xx area. One wish is that it would be nice to have a bigger or additional shower station there (currently, it has only 2 shower/restroom cabins) because there's a line most of the time.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for being a loyal customer. We are so pleased you noticed our hard work and enjoyed. The bath house is new and hopefully in the future we can add another. The WIfI is state of the art and for being in the beautiful Catskills is amazing! We look forward to your many more visits.
May 29, 2024
A little too rustic for our taste, but very nice office people. For true camping people, fine.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are trying to strike a balance between updating the facilites and keeping the traditional rustic feel of the park. We do have more improvements planned. We hope you'll come our way again and see the continued progress.

Huge campground! I like that the RV's were parked on the exterior while a huge grass interior was available and we weren't on top of each other. I did not hear a peep after 10pm which was great and allowed the windows to be open in the RV all night! I never found the 2nd dog park because it was so big! LOL!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are please you enjoyed your spacious site and the quiet hours. We love the open green areas in our loops so people can enjoy use of them. I'm glad you were able to enjoy our large dog park We look forward to your next visit.

Very large park. Quiet. Pool and water slides were a big hit. Creek was also a nice bonus. Will be coming back!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you! Yes we sit in the beautiful valley of the Schoharie creek and it is wonderful. Love our quiet evenings! We have activities every weekend for the entire family and the pool and waterslides are always a huge hit. We look forward to seeing you all again soon!!!
May 28, 2024
It was great. The sites were large enough that you felt like you had your own space without being on top of your neighbors. There was a lot to do which was awesome. It kept our kids busy for most of our trip.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you! Happy you enjoyed your spacious site and the kids and yourselves had so much fun. We strive to be a family oriented park with activities but also plenty of peaceful down time when wanted. The Schoharie creek is beautiful. Look forwarrd to seeing you again,

This is a beautiful campground. All the sites are well spaced and surrounded by lots of woods. A little bit off the beaten path but well worth the trip. Also lots of amenities for kids if you we traveling with young ones. A peaceful respite before getting back on the road.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for taking the time to review our campground! We are very proud of it and working continuously on improvements. We look forward to your next visit!

We were there prior to the pool being open & the water slides for kids being open. Some big changes to the park, but they now have extremely good WiFi throughout the park.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your review-we are sorry you missed out on the pool and waterslides - please come back soon to enjoy. Yes our WIFI is state of the art and we are pleased you noticed.
May 24, 2024
We had a waterfront site that was quiet and quite roomy. This KOA is a work in progress but they’re working hard everyday. Very well maintained. In a very rural beautiful area. Friendly helpful staff, manager is wonderful and doing an excellent job. Would definitely stay again. Only negative, charged son’s family $10 a head to visit for the afternoon.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are so pleased you stayed with us! And you got to enjoy the the water front. It is our first year and we just opened May 10-many projects & improvements-we offer many amenities for our customer and their guest. We look forward to your next stay and to come see the improvements each time! :-)
May 24, 2024
31 ft motorhome+tow. Off beaten path from interstate so nice n quiet. Some narrow windy roads getting there. Gated. Downside for us was asked to walk a distance uphill to register because no one at gate building. PW wifi, cable & cell svc great. Large grassy, level site. Easy in/out. Amenities a hike so we did not use. Rail trail nearby w geocache series; a plus for us. Would stay again to explore

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your kind words. Our staff is very proud of our park and we strive to serve our guest. It is a beautiful park and much to see and do or just enjoy the park surroundings. Yes we are new and have many improvement plan one of which is building a new registration at the entrance level.

Men’s bathroom was never cleaned. Don’t advertise that you have a laundry room when your machine’s are out of order. Trash can near our site was never emptied (4 days). Loud music till 10 PM. Not sure how many people like this. Pluses: Beautiful area. Staff responded quickly about a fresh water pressure problem. No fix available. So, weak water pressure.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Well company came and diagnosed the problem. They replaced a piece of equipment for that particular well. Water pressure has been restored on the sites serviced by that well.

Was great, we traveled 3hrs to check out this facility and it was great. We will definitely return. We stayed in the 300 section and loved it. Campground personnel were all extremely friendly and helpful. KOA did a good decision buying this place.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Everyone was very nice! The spots where we stayed and our relatives stayed was perfect. Big spot with lots of room and quiet. The staff was very helpful and kind. Price was resonable! Very Clean with things to do and a dog park. It was really nice!

We are very pleased that your families had a great time with us and enjoyed our campground. We look forward to you coming to stay with us again in the summer to enjoy the many more fun amenities of the pool and water slides and the Schoharie Creek. Our Staff appreciates your kind words.

Very nice clean campsite. We were only passing through so stayed one night and it rained. The dog park looked great!!

Thank you for staying with us! We look forward to you staying with us again and hopefully a sunny time with no rain and the dog(s) can enjoy the park!:-)
May 20, 2024
Beautiful campground, nicely maintained, BUT bands/DJ's playing on the weekends? You go camping to relax around a nice camp fire and listen to the sounds of the outdoors, not hear an obnoxious band play for 3 HOURS on a Saturday until 10 AT NIGHT!!! Funny that the campground has a noise policy that includes no loud music, yet they violate this policy themselves. Ruined our trip, will never return.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are so sorry that you were unaware that we have entertainment on the weekends. We do post that information on our website and on our Park Facebook page. We do not have nighttime entertainment during the week that would have a sound system. We hope you will try us out during the week sometime.
May 20, 2024
Place is nice stayed in a prem site little pricey in our opinion for off season. Major complaint is the band they had at pav on sat nt the band was extremely loud and screaming into mic from 7-10 pm honestly it ruined our entire night as our spot was close to pavilion and we could not avoid hearing band. Suggest mgmt think about campers that paid to stay and turn down the music!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Volume control for live music is a challenge. Trying to make it loud enough but not too loud. Music does carry throughout the lower level of the park where the pavilion is located. We have spoken to the band about playing at a lower volume the next time at our park.

Had a good Mother’s Day weekend in spite of the weather. Only thing to note- toilet dispensers. Like the concept but twice had to change stalls because dispenser was jammed.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you had a wonderful time with us - sorry on tp our vendor shipped - all fixed now :-)

Great campground, They are working the bugs out, Nice open areas! So peaceful.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for staying with us! Yes it is a serene peaceful atmosphere! We are working out our start up of the season! Look forward to seeing you again.
May 14, 2024
The site was beautiful. I think the only drawback was the road access to the site itself. Once it is finished, it will be easier to navigate in and out of the site.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for joining us!! We appreciate your review and yes road improvements are coming as soon as Mother Nature lets us :-)Look forward to seeing you again!

We have stayed at the campground multiple times prior to the change to KOA. Our sites had always been clean and level with well maintained grass. This time our site was muddy, rocky, and full of trash including fallen limbs, metal screws, nails, broken glass, and a large metal stake that would cause serious damage to our camper had it not been noticed prior to our backing into the site.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have reimplemented checking every site on the day of arrival for issues based on your comment. We hope you will give us another chance and camp with us again.

We've been seasonal campers for going on 4 years now. What brought us to Nickerson now Catskill Mountains Gilboa was the creek, large sites and wide open fields to play games in but what keeps us coming back is the friends we've made there! Things have changed over the years but we have liked the changes and are excited to see the improvements each year! We can't wait to get back to our spot and share meals with our friends that have become like family! I look forward to setting up my site and relaxing nights by the fire! I added the fishing picture because it's probably the biggest fish I've ever caught! The second photo is from the haunted trail which I had the pleasure of helping set it up and be a part of, this was an absolute blast!

Spent Mother's Day weekend here. It's been a few years since we've been here and let me tell you what an improvement to the campground. It is my understanding that there are new owners and it appears that they really care about the place and the staff was fantastic. The new small bathrooms located at different areas of the park are fantastic. They are individual rooms with a shower, sink and toilet. They were spotlessly clean, the water had great pressure and was hot for my whole shower. We perused the activity calendar for the season and were impressed with the lineup of bands and entertainment. Wish our kids were young again. We will absolutely be spending a lot more time here.
