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

Lots of tent camping here and some popups. Rained one of the nights we were there and part of the day. Lots of tree cover kept the rain from being super annoying (and you didn't get very wet running to bathroom). Bathrooms are generally clean. I was not brave enough to use the showers (puddles of dirty water on the... More

Actually, I went with a group of girlfriends, but its def. a family centric, low key kind of place with lots of things to do...or nothing to do. Nice sites with a great fire pit/grill, 99% tent camping. But there are no on site amenities, and no wifi. A fully functioning bath house is close by. The sites are not... More
