  • I love the natural setting, with plenty of room for kids to play, and, as miners themselves, the new management is VERY focused on providing you with some of the best Herkimer Diamond mining experiences ever! Can't wait to go back!
  • Beautiful and clean campground! The owners are so nice! I didn't get the mans name in the office who helped us all weekend but he was awesome!! We will definitely be back!!
  • i love this place people are very nice place is very clean
  • just got back from the camp with my troop (BSA 32, NY)! its to this day, one of my favorite camps i have been to in my life, besides yellow stone national park. the owners are the nicest people. I cant wait to go there again!!!
  • I have been going here since for at least 15 years now. Over the years I have accumulated a lot of Herkimer diamonds. In my opinion the best way to go about it is to look in the spoil piles after it rains or using old trailor springs and metal wood wedges to drive under the rock and pop it upwards to find pockets (or break down larger chunks of rock that have been removed from the wall). Best to bring big sledge hammers and chisels. This is a campground for a get-away. It is the best place to enjoy nature, read a book, play some cards, and eat campfire food. I definitely recommend getting to know Cecily and Evan (the owners). Cecily is very crafty and knowledgeable (especially about birds and jewelry making!) and Evan is one of the funniest down to earth people I know. They are a blast to play card games with. If you are in the area Cooperstown baseball hall of fame and Ommegang Brewery are great places to visit as well!
