A great campground with plenty to do. The hiking is amazing! There are the beautiful Katerskill Falls, the mountain house and many more. This is such a gorgeous area. The campground has 2 beaches where you can swim, picnic, fish or rent a boat. Kayaks, paddle boats and row boats are all available to rent -$25 for the day. Not... More

We recently spent a few nights at North South Lake Campground, and loved it. We stayed at site 204, which is in Loop 7. There was lots of tree cover to give us a lot of privacy. Loop 7 is located away from the lake, and away from the other camping loops. We enjoyed it because it seemed quieter than... More

I went camping during the last weekend of May, 2015. We were altogether 4 camp sites, 8 tents. We had lots of children and we all felt the place was safe for them to run and play around. Each camp site is allowed to have 2 cars (register at the entrance) and two tents only. I was allowed to park... More

Nice, clean campground. This was my 3rd camping of the season and I must say north-sough campground was the most clean campground among all of them. The park itself has lot to offer including scenery, hiking trails, picnic areas. We hiked to Artist Rock and Sunset rock and the view from both the points was breathtaking. Beautiful fall colors and... More

I took my kids there July 2014. The bathing facilities, bathrooms and sites are all well kept up and nice. Campground management a little overbearing and overly concerned about making noise at night. I found the people in the office while checking in somewhat impatient as well. Not friendly.

This was part of our first ever NY trip, and the first thing on the list. So after landing in LGA, we directly headed to Catskill. Catskill had been figuring among the top 5 spots to see fall colors over the past few years. Among the many reviews I've read about Catskill fall colors, none mentioned where exactly to go... More

Love, love, love this campground AND the beautiful hiking trails that you can access so close to your campsite! Two beautiful and clean lakes (North and South, which are connected) offer great kayaking and fishing (in addition to swimming during the summer months). The campground is surrounded by beautiful forest, which is so vibrant during autumn when the foliage is... More

We were at site #177 which did have a path to the lake; we were able to wheel our kayak down the path. When we were looking at the sites online, and with Bing maps, we couldn't tell if the shore was a cliff drop-off or not. Well, on the loop 6 side, it's a nice sloping granite shoreline with... More
