This campground had so much to offer with diamond mining across the street, a lazy river, pool,nightly movies. Plus the campsites bathrooms and showers were clean. A great experience.

We had our second annual group trip for ourselves and friends from out of state this time. Everyone had a wonderful time, and we plan on returning again!

We had a beautiful tent site on the river, I loved the view. The only thing I didn't like is water hook ups were not included so it made cleaning up after meals difficult.

Bathrooms are a little far from the tent sites.

2nd KOA I've stayed at on my bike tour. 2nd KOA that told me internet would work from my site. 2nd KOA where the Internet did not work from my site. I will avoid KOA as internet availability was the major reason I chose it.

Campground was very enjoyable. The family had a wonderful time.

The experience was by far the worst I have ever had in my 30+ years of camping. The sites were uncomfortably tight, the quiet hrs were never enforced, the bathrooms were few, and poorly stocked. The drunken, trashy behavior my two small children witnessed was something I cant even wrap my head around. The staff were kind and helpful after the fact, but we still left without finishing our stay.

Hunting for Herks was an item on our "bucket list". In order to make it happen, we knew we needed an affordable means of lodging. We thought we would try to tent camp. Herkimer KOA couldn't have been more perfect for our family's first go at camping. The river that ran alongside our site was the perfect setting for us to LOVE our stay. Everything else was a bonus. These Midwesterners will be back!

Very clean. Beautiful sites. Close to places we wished to visit. The negative was a bordering camper couple who at 0130 am every morning would scream and yell at one another using foul language while their young son cried mommy. We almost Called 911.

Very nice except for the rain. Would be nice to have platforms to put tent on. Areas were little wet. Besides the wetness we enjoyed our stay will be returning. Staff was great.

I called in to arrange to stay by my brother and the ranger said it was, but it was not. We were far apart.

The reason that I wouldn't be likely to recommend this KOA is that I don't know of anyone who would be camping in that area. The campground was fine. We were there just a very short time and didn't take advantage of much of what the campground offers, but it all seemed very good. The picnic table was missing from our campsite. When I informed the manager on duty, the problem was quickly rectifi

Unusable campsite (96) from the day I arrived (gravel, flooded). Moved to a friend's site, flooded out, evacuated, trip ruined. Feel free to contact for MUCH more.

Very enjoyable for the kids. Loved the creek for rafting. Everything was close to your site....

This place is hands down the nicest campground we have ever stayed at. More of a resort than a typical campground, we can't wait to visit again. Their associated restaurant across the street is seriously awesome too. The staff was super friendly and the place was clean. 5 stars all day.

This is the first time we stayed at a KOA. We were extremely impressed. My 7 year old son liked it so much that we decided to stay another night. Matt was a wonderful Activities Director. One activity he did was an child and adult obstacle course. The children talked him into competing. When he agreed, they all ran after him and did the course with him. It should great respect and love.

Rude people on both sides of campsite site 94 the father cared more about drinking and showing off his bare beer gut then making sure his two young children were under control at site92 and 91 neither camper cared about how big their fires or how bright they made them at 1 am some strange guy attempted to enter our tent in the middle of the night worst vacation I've had there will not be returning

This was my first time staying at a KOA. It was great! The facilities were clean and new, the staff was extremely friendly and helpful, and I loved the wide array of amenties, especially the diamond mine! The river was a lovely backdrop for our camping experience, and we will definitely be going back soon!

I wish I had looked closer to see how many daily activities there were for both my kids to do! I would have planned to stay longer.

The staff was friendly and the campsite was awesome! My daughter and I had a great fathers day weekend and there was plenty to do. The guys doing the make your own slime were great, and the fathers day breakfast was fantastic. Highly recommend theis KOA. This was our 4th fathers day weekend at this KOA. Its become a tradition for me and my now 9year old.

This is a great campground. One of our favorite KOA. The staff is very nice and make you feel wanted there. There are a lot of thing to do here. Tent sites are of a good size and leave you with extra room. Love the movies on the weekend.

The grounds were beautiful, the facilities were clean, and the staff was very friendly!

The amenities and site were great. People were setting up for a special event the next day. They tramped all over our camp site while we were there, shone car lights into the site next to us, and were playing loud music until after 10 pm. ruined our experience.

We love camping here. Every year we see new upgrades, and the staff really seem to like what they do.
May 30, 2017
We had a great time. The campsites were huge and was more than enough room for the two large tents we had. The activities were perfect for the kids we brought, they always had something to do and weren't bored once.

Searching for diamonds is really fun! The only problem I have with this campground is how close in proximity your neighbors are. They are very obviously trying to maximize their revenue stream.

An ideal getaway

Campers next to us were up and loud until after midnight, made it hard to get a good rest. Not very respectful of others around them.
May 02, 2017
The sites were nice, the bathrooms were clean, the staff were friendly and knowledgeable, there were things to do at the campground like big chess, and disc golf, the creek was nice, and the kids had a good time.
May 02, 2017
Bathroom could have been closer to tent sites, instead of next to RV sites. Also when we arrived there were campers on either side of us, which is fine for us, butperhaps you should have set them up as far from a large group as possible since every other site was unoccupied, even if you had to upgrade those folks, to make their experience more enjoyable.

Facilities were better than I expected. Staff were friendly and helpful. Price is reasonable. Good location.

We love you and your Dad and always have a super great time there. Thank you for the drink at the new informal dining spot. It is much more suitable for miners and campers. It is convenient to the mine and the resort. I see the changes and applaud your management over the years. My grandson and I have the best time there always. Congratulations on the Gems Along the Mohawk. I got a quick visit.
