A friend and I stayed for 5 days around the 4th of July. It'd be wise to not mistake a public campground with a resort lodge. I feel like it was worth what we paid. We chatted with the check-in staff for about 15 min and felt very welcome. Our specific site was pretty open, but we had no neighbors so no biggie for us. You can always call ahead and ask which sites have more privacy. The restaurant next door did have music, but they stopped using the speakers by 10 pm (quiet time for the campground) and was out by 11 pm (their bbq style food was pretty good btw). The bathrooms were clean. They could use some updating. I've learned to pick my battles and simply brought my own soap to use, though there was a bottle in there most of the time. 50 people showering back-to-back is going to run the hot water down of course. Perhaps they should install one of those things that you have to put quarters in to turn on the water, We had originally planned on primitive camping, so I was thankful for the amenities that were there and have been to far worse places. The proximity to Lake Placid, Saranac Lake, and all the trail heads would have been enough alone to make me happy. Then again, I did my research and knew what I was getting. If you're an "upscale camper", this may not be the place for you. Rent a cabin somewhere. If you're accustomed to using an outhouse and bathing in a river, this place is more than efficient to fulfilling your needs.
