  • Stopped on the way to the 2017 Bristol Race. Didn't want to drive the full distance from NY this year - something different for the guys - Very impressive camp grounds. We are use to the "bare neccessaries" wilderness camping. What a pleasure to pull into a campsite using only 1 - 2x6 to level the trailer - hooked up electric and water / let out awning / grabbed lounge chairs and was having a beer in 15 min. Showers have tiled floors - one piece showers - no regulated shower water - plenty of changing room - no cob webs / cleanest facilities we have been in for a longtime. This will be our stop again for the 2017 August Bristol Race !!! Maybe a day earlier to enjoy the lake and some attractions.
  • Variety of RV and tent sites available. Friendly and helpful staff. Gorgeous view from our RV spot, looking down thru the valley to the lake! Very clean restrooms and lots of close by recreation and activities including white water rafting, boating and hiking. Don't forget to say hi to their friendly dog Otis!
  • Rented a pontoon for the whole day (8 a.m.ish to 5 p.m.). Used less than $10 on gas and boated around the lake all day. No complaints as the pontoon was in great condition and were taught everything we needed to do in getting the boat in/out of the water.
  • Absolutely love this place. Staff is helpful and very friendly. Only down side is there are no laundry facilities. Other than that... This is the nicest campground in the state!
  • Crazy high prices. Very nice staff. The prices are simply outrageous, a perfect example of greed using our state an fed tax dollar paid attractions to get rich. Eliminating the opportunity for average income people to enjoy what their taxes paid to have built an maintained.
