“Small, Nice Campground”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2013

A friend and I stayed at the Deer Haven Campground a few weeks ago. We came in around 6 PM on a rainy night.

The office did not have anyone in it, however, after using the phone available a staff person came out immediately. We checked in and hooked up.

CAMPGROUND: The cabins at the campground have an AMAZING view of the valley and Oneonta, even with the clouds and rain we enjoyed the view. There is a large picnic pavilion and open green space up the hill from the cabins. There is a small pool, however we did not use it - cold and we were only there for a night.

RV SITES: we had electric, sewage and water. The spaces were somewhat private due to trees and bushes between sites. Our spot was level and had gravel. We had the site farthest from the office, towards the open green space.

RESTROOM: This spot is also the closest to the restrooms. There is a toilet separate from a shower for each sex. The toilette and shower were clean. There were a few cobwebs in the ceiling, no big deal. Felt new and generally clean.

Overall, nice spot. Easy access to Oneonta. It is easy to miss from the access road to the campground. GoogleMaps on my iPhone worked very well to make sure we didn't miss the turn in the dark rain.

Beautiful Mountain Top Location which is so beautiful. Cabins are cute, but leak in the rain. We stayed there for a week at the end of August during Hurricane Irene. The entire team stayed there while our children played baseball in Cooperstown. We had left our chairs undamaged on the porch with the exception of a little crack that was on a chair when we arrived. We were then sent an invoice two weeks later for the cost of a broken chair. Emails went unanswered and shockingly our credit card was charged. The location was OK, view was amazing but we were not the only cabin that was charged.

My family stayed in a cabin at Deer Haven over the summer and loved it! The cabins are adorable, and we loved sitting on the front porch looking out at the gorgeous views from the mountaintop. The kids loved the brand-new pool too....having a pool was a big plus!! The owners were really nice and very helpful. We already booked for next year, It was right across the street from the All-Star Village and soccer Hall of Fame, and also close to Cooperstown, so it was a fantastic location. We loved it!

  • Liked — That we had an entire cabin....not cramped in a hotel room. And the price is right!
  • Disliked — Nothing...it was great.
