Our stay was great. The pot holes need to be filled in. Campers should go in the out exit. It would make it easier.

We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay! We are fighting a never-ending battle with the potholes this season. The rain keeps getting the upper hand. We will keep at it though. Eventually, we are bound to get ahead. Thanks again!

The biggest issue was the dog park. There was dog feces in the dog park from the day we arrived, the same pile was still there the day we left as well as additional piles. We did notify the staff however it was never picked up.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are so sorry that this was an issue for you. Sometimes, try as we might, things do fall through the cracks. We will get that taken care of right away. Thank you for your patience, and for choosing us for your camping trip. Please come back soon.

It would be great to have a pool for the kids. Plus up grade the play ground. Our stay was nice and enjoyable. The staff was great and very helpful. 5 star on them. We look forward to next year stay. Rated 4 because no pool for the kids.

The location for this KOA is amazing close to everything. Beautiful views. The Checkin and staff were great. The down side was the sewer smell. My family had two campsites and a cabin and walking and sitting by the fire you would get hit with a wave of sewer Smell… maybe something that can be fixed?!? Made relaxing outside less enjoyable.

There weren’t the typical KOA activities. There were kayaks and paddle boards but no water to put them in, no golf carts to rent, the fire pits were way too close to the driveways, no privacy and there was not any options for concrete pads. We liked the fox farm KOA way better. Hopefully that one gets reopened

Thank you for staying with us. We apologize for the confusion with the watercraft rentals. We launch them for our guests across the street on the river side of our property. The water is calm and beautiful there and you can paddle upstream and drift back down at your leisure.

This was our first time at this KOA as we have stayed multiple times at your previous location on Fox Farm RD. The site I was on was was very accommodating for my 28 foot travel trailer. The reason for the 4 was we really missed the pool and for multiple days that we were there, we experience a very strong sewer smell that occurred daily throughout the day.
Aug 08, 2023
I loved the cabin. My only complaint would be the huge RV with the very loud music that was across the street, but very close to us. I guess a little more space would be nice. I loved the quietness of the KOA Holiday site before the move. All in all though this wasn't bad, and we will probably be back.

We are not happy with the new location, the price is very expensive for a campsite with electric and sewer hook up with no other amenities. No snack shack at the new location no cable no swimming pool or golf. We were told the price is going to almost double next year. After so many years staying and loving the old location, i think we be in the market for a new campground in the Lake Placid area.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for staying with us. Don't worry, while pricing does fluctuate from year to year, there is no scenario where we would double our rates. We will continue to work toward adding and upgrading to provide the amenities that were so loved on the last property as quickly as possible.

It’s a big act to follow the previous Lake Placid KOA site but this location is on their way! We did wish there were more activities throughout the week but I can imagine staffing is terribly tough as with most industries. No significant complaints although the playground could use updating especially since they do not have a pool.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you so much for your patience with us and for your kind words. We appreciate them so much! A playground update and a pool are both on our future wish list. We can't wait to keep making this park better and better. Thanks again!

Nice cabin. Lots of activities too. Game room could use some updating.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you! We are glad you enjoyed your cabin and our planned activities. We agree that the game room needs some love, and we are already brainstorming! Stay tuned for exciting updates. Thanks again!

Our deluxe cabin was located directly behind the dump station, so every time someone came to dump their camper, we were forced inside due to the pungent smell that came over our outdoor space. It definitely put a damper on our weekend. My children also missed not having a pool to swim in.
Aug 07, 2023
We had a wonderful family time but were unhappy with the #25 site and the long walk to the bathroom. When we camped at the old KOA there were more available away from the main camp. The other campsite was perfect for our family. Missed a pool but the weather wasn't helping. We realize you are new and building so we may come back to check the KOA out. You were very helpful with messages. Thank you.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are so glad that you had a wonderful time. A popular option is to use our 'Select My Site' feature either online or by calling. This allows you to lock in your favorite site for a $25 fee. Thank you so much for your patience with us. Continued improvements are on the way!

Our family had an amazing time camping. The kids had so much fun, clean washrooms, friendly and very helpful staff. Park was really well maintained and in a great location. We can’t wait to come back!

Thank you for staying with us and for your kind words. We hope you can camp with us again soon!

Stayed in a cabin which I enjoy. I like to have cable an up to this year there was cable......no cable this year?.........Need more washrooms and showers......was shut out many times over 4 days because of crowds using the facilities........all the rest was good...just two things
Aug 07, 2023
I stayed at the previous site in 2021. There were more amenities available for a small family. Our camping cabin 59 had a television that did not work (cable on exterior not connected and remote’s enter button didn’t work), the refrigerator portion of the fridge froze my meat, eggs and vegetables, but if turned down, the fridge defrosted quickly/not cold and only one electrical outlet in cabin

The major issue was the lack of bathrooms!! One of the bathrooms was closed for six out of the seven days we were there. We had to wait up to 15 minutes to use one of the two bathrooms available. Yes, we could have walked around to the front to use bigger bathroom in the front, but it made for a longer walk, especially if you walked to the closer one first. This was totally unacceptable!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for staying with us. We apologize for your long wait times to use the restroom facilities. We can't wait to upgrade our bathhouses! Watch for new and exciting developments as we continue to improve. Thanks for your patience.

The tent sites are roomy, there is a lot of trees and shade. There was only 3 bathrooms near our campsite and each had a toilet and shower in the same stall. This is not ideal, if someone uses the shower, the toilets are unavailable for a while. They are cleaned multiple times a day. There is a beach just across the road. Overall a great camping.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for choosing us! New and more plentiful restrooms are at the top of our near-future upgrade list. Stay tuned for exciting things to come! We hope you can come back soon.

The site will absolutely not pick up phone most days. (especially early in season) Due to change in plans we had to extend our reserveration by adding another separate reservation. Of course we were hoping to have a single site for entire stay, but since phone is never answered this could not be discussed. Finally got through close to visit time.... 1st site #58 huge wet spot...very rough.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We apologize for your difficulty in reaching us. Our call volume can be extremely high at times, but our staff does their very best to keep up. Another option is to add a note to your online reservation and our team will do everything they can to accommodate. Thank you so much for your patience.

Very rough roads, big pot holes so big my camper refrigerator door popped open and we were going slow. Showers and restrooms were not very clean and stalls were dark. Sites were ok but poor runoff and no gravel so rain made them quite muddy. Needs a lot of tlc and office closes at 5. They do not lead you to your site like other koas and I’m not sure it was family owned. Workers were not very hap

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are doing our very best to stay ahead of the roads but the constant rain this year seems to be winning. We aren't giving up though! Even though there are many challenges, we hope that you were able to enjoy your time and relax a bit. We promise that we will continue to get better and better.

Your staff was so very helpful. I was stressed out over a black tank / toilet backup and Sam helped me out. Great knowledge. Great customer service. Thank you again !

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for staying with us. We agree-Sam is amazing! We will be sure to let him know that you appreciated his help. Have a great week and please come back soon.

Missing the old location. The entire property smelled of septic during our whole stay. The playground had many unsafe items. The men’s showers were gross.

We stayed in the delux cabin with our granddaughter. Excellent facility, clean area, courteous staff, easy access from road.

Clearly not the old whiteface Koa that was one of the best in the country. Is def not even close to that level. One complaint is that half the amenities are not available except for weekends. Like the store opens late and closes early. There’s no activities for kids or wagon rides except weekends. But yet we pay full price and get half the experience. Crossing a busy road go to the beach not coo

Cabins very nice very clean, more like a hotel which I like, : did have a mouse but office put in traps and we caught him. A suggestion would be to put sliding curtain over high window in bedroom so we could open and close to keep light out in am..beautiful window. a pool would be nice to have esp for kids . . We had a nice time ,a lot to do in area
Aug 02, 2023
Campground moved. We found out the day before. No pool. Strong smell of sewage everywhere.
Aug 02, 2023
Everything there is very organized and clean & staff are fantastic. So lacking in not having a pool. I know this is all new & ongoing but that is a downfall. Driving by Fox Farm was very sad, I've been camping there 40 years! I know things are a work in progress tho. I would stay there again, also.
Aug 02, 2023
I am extremely disappointed with the price I paid for a campsite. It's after all a campsite, not a hotel with amenities.
Aug 01, 2023
We enjoyed staying at your camp ground given how close it is to all the Lake Placid attractions. The site 86 was large enough to accommodate my rig and my tow vehicle. Wi-Fi speed was awesome. My two biggest complaints are the camp ground roads that have so many pot holes that it is very tough to avoid them. My other is the firewood I purchased from you was to damp or not seasoned enough to burn
Aug 01, 2023
We stayed in a Deluxe cabin and loved it! Only complaints were the parking was a little tight for big vehicles (sites D031 and D033). And the sewage smell was a bit over powering at times. We found ALL staff to be super friendly! The kids wished the store was open in the evenings. We would be busy all day so they often wanted to go get a snack in the evening. Coming again next year!
Aug 01, 2023
Nice campground, it def has potential in the future. And all of the complaints about the wifi are BS. It worked great. Super clean. Its just the change for me. I grew up in the other KOA and the North Pole. It was more sad than anything.
Aug 01, 2023
Great stay. Neighbors stayed up past 3am. Very noisy one night.

The new KOA is barebones and not worth the same price of admission. The old KOA on foxfarm is undergoing renovations or is permanently closed. Which is sad. ** THIS REVIEW IS FOR THE OLD CAMPGROUND at Fox run road** This is our favorite camping place. The rates are affordable for all. We have stayed here 4 years in a row. We have done the cabins, tent camping and recently glamping. Tent sites - On a sand pad, some have electricity, some don't. Bathrooms nearby are clean and have showers with warm water. Staff cleans bathrooms throughout the day. Can't ask for more! Always plenty of sites available with their own fire rings. Kids can ride their bikes to 1 of 2 playgrounds safely. Cabins - We stayed in deluxe cabins and it was awesome. They are right on a cliff above the below stream and you can hear the rushing water constantly. They have 4 bunks in most of them with a pull out couch and queen bed. Also a private bathroom that has soap provided, a kitchen and living room with table. Outside has a deck, firepit, adirondack chairs, and gas bbq grill. Perfect for family outings without having to rough it. Glamping - This is new and we did it recently 6/4/21. The tent is beautiful and has 2 rooms, one queen and one with 3 bunk beds. There is space to hang your stuff, a deck with a picnic table, a gas grill (no utensils provided, BYO), a fire ring, 4 adirondack chairs and it is close to the stream in an isolated area. There are 4 tents. GT2 >1 are very close to each other so be aware of that. The nearby bathrooms are very nice and clean with hot water and a tiny walk away. This place will deliver ice and firewood to your site if you call and request or ask at check in which is AWESOME. There is a heated pool next to the lodge which is awesome. There are 2 playgrounds, an arcade and mini golf on site. The staff are the friendliest people ever and are so nice. Highly recommend for everyone to check this place out. Veterans and Military discounts available.

We don't camp anymore but this was our favorite KOA campground. It was about a 5 hr drive from our home in Oshawa area. Camp sites we a good size and lots of trees around. The owner are great, they offer pancakes and more in the upper main building different days.
