Saugerties/Woodstock KOA Campground
Reviewed 20 July 2014

This was our first trip to any KOA, we are normally Jellystone people and have had good and bad experiences there also.

Let me start with the GOOD for the KOA in Saugerties: (using a 32 foot travel trailer for this trip). The entrance and office were well kept and the staff was very nice. Showing us to our site. The pool is kept clean and there were a few games in the arcade. Mini golf was fun for the kids. The laundry facility were very clean (used the dryer) and at 25 cents per 7 min it only took a dollar to dry wet pool towels great. The nature walk is excellent and well traveled and marked. Kids loved the craft provided at no cost on saturday morning and the candy hunt at night. We were familiar with the fire truck ride at another campground so that was not too exciting for my kids, but I can see how it might be for others. Cable TV came in perfect and internet was great at our site.

Now on to the "not so good"....our site was extremely muddy. I asked the girl who brought us to the site when it rained last and she said Sunday (this was now Friday afternoon)...I was surprised at the mud and standing water still around. The sites all around us were not muddy at all. It did make for a messy set up and clean up. The sites were SMALL. We had never been to another campground where the person next to us was so close...we had to ask the camper next to us to close their truck windows so we could have a camp fire. We had to roll up our canopy on the camper in order to have a fire as it would almost be right over the top of it (and we were as far over to the left as possible). All gravel and no grass anywhere. The fire "rings" were permanent which was a first for us also, otherwise we would have moved it to have a fire that was not so close to our camper and the neighbor.

I would thought were would have been a few umbrellas at the pool. No shade what so ever. 1 table and some lounge chairs. I feel this area could have been improved (although very clean for what was there).

The playground: if you were older than 5, then don't bother. everything was very low to the ground and definitely for children 5 and under (although sign says 10 and under). The bouncy house was big but extremely dirty.

Overall we wont return due to the size of the spaces but if you were tent camping or a smaller camper (which there were MANY larger than ours) it would be fine.

owners very very nice to us.

This is a great little campgrounds that is wooded and really makes you feel like you are camping. We stayed in a pull thru site which was very long, more than enough room for our 40 ft motorhome with our tow vehicle attached (we did unhook) The campsites had firepits that were lined with rocks from the area which made them look more inviting than those ugly rusted steel rings. Wayne and Gail were great and more than friendly. I emailed Wayne several times for questions before I reserved, long before their season opened and He and Gail quickly answered and when I did reserve, they sent me an email to confirm. It's a quiet campgrounds although we stayed over the 4th of July, we still found that the campgrounds was full, the noise level was down.
There was a playground and a short nature trail that was nice. They had rides on a old fire engine - we did not go but the adults and kids that did seemed to have a good time. I didn't use the restrooms so I can't comment on that. But the campgrounds were constantly be looked after and trash bags removed all throughout the day even though it was suppose to be out by 9 (I think that was the time). Looks like they are trying to improve the campgrounds and looks like the campgrounds was an older campground. We stayed in a Motorhome and had plenty of room for our slide out. Big Rig accessible. Employees seen around campgrounds all the time during open hours. No wild parties or drunk people nor was there offensive or loud language. We would camp here again.

This campsite is outside the town of Saugerties and 7 miles from Woodstock. The campsite is wooded and you feel like you are truly in the country. It is very clean and well-maintained by the owners who work hard and make sure you feel welcome and comfortable. Bathrooms are clean and bright. You can relax at the campgrounds where they have a clean, heated pool and lots of things for children to do. There is also a lot to see and do in the area. We went antiquing in Saugerties and shopping in Woodstock. We found some really great swimming holes nearby which are not easy to find but if you are persistent in your search, you will find them. Mostly local people at "Big Deep" and "Little Deep. The campground is easy to locate and close to the interstate. The owners keep the rules for quiet after 10 p.m. which is most appreciated. This is a good place for families and also for couples. The only suggestion is to make sure you bring your own grill or some type of grill basket since the fire pits don't have grates like they do at other campsites.

We don't spend a lot of time at the campground (sleep and meals, mainly). This campground has everything you need, clean restrooms and showers, convenience store, clean campsites and accommodating hosts.

This was our first trip to this KOA location. We were there as a group of 15 people with some day visitors. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The tent site that our sons reserved was not going to be big enough for their tent (huge tent) and they were more than happy to let them switch to a more comfortable site. They owners stopped and chatted every time they saw you (very friendly) and the staff members always had a smile and a wave when they passed by. The pool was heated and very nicely kept. The kids enjoyed the game room. We have already reserved our spots for next year. We are so happy to find our new annual camping location.

Every year we head up to this camp ground on Memorial Day. We are a very large group and we sure do give them a run for their money. Just coordinating the campsites to having the slushie machine ready for the endless trips the kids make is a handful with us and Wayne and Gail always have a smile on their face when they see us coming. (Not really sure if they are laughing at something one of us did the night before) The Frisbee golf is a favorite and the new cabins with the bathrooms totally rock. Look forward to returning year after year.

First of all the park is a little place to stop for a day or two wouldn't recommend going longer unless your with a bunch of friends. Had nice little pool arcade and bike trails and a golf course. But very little staff and little to do. And a bouncy house that made you want to get a hose or broom to clean it because every time a kid jumped it created a little dirt storm. I don't if she is the owner or what but watch for Gail she is one the rudest people I ever met in my life. I took my kids to play some mini golf and she was unbelievably rude because she had to get up of her butt to get us a few golf clubs for us and my friends daughter went with us and she asked so politely for a purple club and Gail gave her the evil eye and said she gets what she gets and then she asked for purple ball and she did the same thing as before even though she had purple ball anyway. Then she got mad and insisted we don't come back to play golf again because we were apparently giving her trouble. Thanks Gail nice way to lose customers. Then on the way leaving she was arguing with more people , not surprising. Watch for her she don't like people. This a place to go if you have absolutely no where else to go
