“Bad”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

I haven't been camping in years, and based on my experience here, I will not be camping again soon.

Good: the individual campsites are mostly treed, and all are very large. We were able to fit a tent trailer and a 6-man tent very comfortably.

Bad: very, very noisy. The road (rte 73?) is very close. We also had two separate and loud parties within 100 yds of our campsite. There was no attempt by the campground to shut the parties down. My feeling is that the campground is not staffed at night.

Worse: toilets and showers (in our part of the campground) are decrepid. The building should be knocked down and re-built. For one day the gents shower (one stall only) was out-of-order.

Room Tip: If you must stay here, try to be as far away from the road as possible.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
We are a family run campground located in Lake Placid, NY. This campground offers quiet wooded tent and camper/RV sites as well as cabins. It's a great place to enjoy a hot shower and a campfire after a long day exploring the town or the mountains. Just remember, stress is caused by not camping enough... ... more   less
