This place is incredible. From friendly, always available/helpful staff to extremely clean bathhouses all the way to never ending opportunities for fun (mini-golf, mining, boating, swimming, 2 arcades) this is by far the best campground that we have visited. The sites are spacious and well-maintained. The general store has everything you could want including a great selection of craft beer and wine.

THERE ARE 2 SECTIONS- RESORT AND 100 ACRE WOODS. WE STAYED IN THE 100 ACRE WOODS SECTION. SITES ARE A NICE SIZE. THIS AREA IS QUITE PLEASANT AND WAS NOT SO CROWDED WHEN WE WERE THERE. WE WERE AT SITE 60, WHICH, AT FIRST WE THOUGHT WAS AWESOME - A LOT OF ROOM BEHIND AND IN FRONT OF US---HOWEVER, WE WERE LOCATED ON THE ROAD BETWEEN THE TENTS AND BATHROOMS - SO WE HAD PEOPLE CROSSING THROUGH OUR SITE CONSTANTLY AS A SHORTCUT TO THE BATHROOMS.

THERE WAS NO CABLE, BUT WE DID HAVE APX 15 GOOD CHANNELS. THE STORE IS VERY LARGE, HOWEVER, THE GENTLEMAN CHECKING US IN AND LATER WAITING ON US WAS NOT VERY PLEASANT. THE GROUNDS KEEPERS IN THE WOODS SECTION WERE GREAT AND KEPT THE PLACE SPOTLESS. THERE WERE ONLY 2 WASHERS AND DRYERS IN THE WOODS SECTION - WHERE THE TENTS ARE- THEY WERE CERTAINLY NOT ENOUGH. WAITING LINES WERE VERY LONG AND ONE OF THE DRYERS DID NOT WORK PROPERLY. WOULD DEFINATELY STAY THERE AGAIN - THEY DID KEEP THE PLACE IMMACULATE- EVEN THE SHOWER WATER PRESSURE WAS GREAT. THE RESORT SECTION IS DOWN THE ROAD AND ACROSS THE STREET. IT HAS ALL OF THE AMENITIES AND THE LAKE/RIVER.

We stayed at this very well maintained, clean and friendly campground for a week and enjoyed it immensely. The sites are gravel, large and our site had a firepit and picnic table in a clearing behind our rig which was very private and peaceful. The restrooms and all facilities were clean. Beautiful setting on the Ausable River, 12 miles from Lake Placid and 5 miles from Whiteface Mountain.

We stayed at the North Pole Resorts from August 3rd to the 10th. A family outing and we rented three (3) full hook up sites and two (2) cabins. People very nice and helped us with many questions. This resort is only a few miles from downtown Lake Placid and a shorter distance to the gondola ride at White Face MTN. Some of the group used the restroom and showers and I heard no complaint about the cleanliness of either. Definitely would stay here again. And they even have a wine store at the... Read More

We stayed in the Hundred Acre Wood section because we prefer more secluded and wooded sites and they met our needs perfectly. My 27' trailer slid in nicely and the site was fantastic. The place was very clean and quiet. It was conveniently located near Whiteface and only 15 minutes to Lake Placid. The staff was great. They were constantly cleaning and taking care of the place. They also escorted us to our site and made sure we got in ok. The store and bathrooms were also excellent. This is... Read More

This is the best campground we have ever been to for out style of camping, secluded with all of the hookups. Highly recommend.

This campground needs MAJOR updates. The laundry, game room and restrooms are run down and old. They are charging $6 for mini golf but alot of it is broken. WIFI and cable are a joke. Electric grid needs updating and cannot accommodate newer campers and rigs. We and our neighbors lost power at the main pole twice because we used the hair dryer and air conditioning at the same time. The pool and camp store are really the only positives.

Be aware that there seems to be no security here after 10 pm. Feel very unsafe due to next door neighbors watching television outside around the campfire until 2 am.Not really appreciating leaving the noise of the city to listen to neighbors movies laced with profanities while sitting around the campfire trying to enjoy nature.

We are very sorry to hear that you felt unsafe while here! We are a family owned campground... with 6 family members who live on the property and are ready to respond 24 hours a day to any need. We have property-wide security on duty and enforce our quiet hours, We do have staff that patrol the campground late into the night. We will respond to any call at any time... and we wish you would have made a call to let us know there was a problem so that we could have ended it immediately. We apologize... Read More

Clean, older park but well maintained. Staff friendly and helpful. There are two areas to this park, one side called the resort area and another area on the other side of the road called The 100 Acre Woods. The resort area is more your typical RV park with RV sites, tents and some cabins. Sites are close together and packed dirt/gravel, but well maintained. Internet was spotty, but we did get reception for our Verizon hotspot. We also got satellite reception at Site 12. Road in is so narrow... Read More

Internet was spotty, but we did get reception for our Verizon hotspot. We also got satellite reception at Site 12. Road in is so narrow that we had to move our car at least 6 times in order for other campers to back into their sites. The 100 Acre Woods area is heavily wooded and more like a state park type campground. Park is located close to hiking and all the Olympic venues at Lake Placid.

Quaint little gem in the Adirondacks of NY State, 2 miles from the Whiteface Ski center. We stayed here for 3 nights as it was close to an event my family attended. Facility was cute, capitalizing on the Christmas theme and the sites are well laid out, with a fire ring area in back of each site with some distance between your rig. Prices are very reasonable, the General Store had many items and the bathrooms were very well maintained.

The grounds are nice (but tight given the area) and many of the facilities are aged and worn (has the old and falling apart feel....but with fresh paint for the cameras). We are a family of four that has traveled all over the country/world and I can honestly say that the staff is the most unfriendly and unaccomadating we've ever seen (2 years in a row!). So why did we stay here again you ask....the area fully books out during Ironman and they are all that's left! They were so rude this year, we've... Read More

So why did we stay here again you ask....the area fully books out during Ironman and they are all that's left! They were so rude this year, we've decided to boondock next year if we have to. Other than one older gentlemen who was always kind, the rest of the staff made us constantly feel like we were an inconvenience to them. We would not recommend this campground to anyone and we will not be back. Good Sam should send someone unannounced to camp here and then relook at making this a Good Sam park....my guess is they would remove their sign out front.

We live so close but never realized what an amazing campground this was. We loved the pool and being able to walk to the Wilmington beach. The sites were roomy and the 2 sites we had were private. As a Sam goody member we even saved 10%. The restrooms were clean and the showers were better then most camp grounds we have been too.

Friendly family run facility! Absolutely the cleanest bathrooms I've experienced anywhere!! Exceptional camp store. Close to Ausable River for fishing, Lake Placid for shopping, Hungry Trout for dinner, 2 excellent fly shops within a mile. Level immaculately groomed sites, we'll be back!

We love fall RVing. We came here for one weekend a few years back and loved it so much, we come for 3-4 weekends every year since. So much to do in the area. Great family place.

We only live 150 miles from this campground and it is our favorite getaway place to camp. We love the 100-acre woods section, with long private pull-thru sites. The guys who guide you in are top-notch and the sites are raked with firepits emptied before your arrival. The feel is very woodsy in Adirondack Mts. It is a 20-minute ride to the beautiful Olympic village of Lake Placid.

This place is fantastic. Friendly owners and staff. Sandwiched between a lake and the mountains. Hiking accessible from the property. Ice cream and burger places both next door, and across the street. Bathrooms nearly spotless, even the floors. spacious sites, many with extra picnic table in the woods for shade. Liquor store right there, Chocolate store on the corner. Grocery store within walking distance. They have it all.
