This was great for a one night stay while traveling home from cape cod. We are more state park kind of people. The sites here are right on top of each other. The bathroom was gross. The pool was pretty but too cold to swim in. The place was right across the street from the mine. That was convenient &... More

We stayed at this campground two years ago, and our children loved it so much that they begged to stay again on our trip back through New York. Lovely grounds, pool and activities. You can tell that the staff takes pride in maintaining the flowers and raised bed gardens. They have a beautiful location on the river and the Herkimer... More

A few miles northeast of Utica this campground borders a lovely creek. It's nestled in a sloping valley among old trees and the quaint village of Herkimer. Lots of family activities on site and panning for quartz at the Diamond Mine. The staff was great and the grounds and facilities were neat and spotless

We only stayed one night but we loved every minute of it. We got there around 5 on a Saturday. Got checked in, unpacked and hit the pool. Then, got a couple of pizza's at the pavilion for dinner, which you can get delivered right to your campsite. Next we played on the playground. My only issue was that the... More

this was our first time camping with our very first Travel Trailer! The other campers and the staff were very helpful in helping us work out a few bugs and taught us a few things about the camper we didn't already know. Even though it was early in the year and they didn't have any activities running yet, my kids... More

We found the Herkimer KOA when relocating to New York from GA. Most campgrounds in the north close mid October to winterize (did not know this) and struggled to find a place to stay until November when we close on our house. The Herkimer KOA stays open as long as the weather permits and were so helpful with our situation.... More

We spend three nights at this campground. Two people and one dog in a 21 foot camper, full hook up pull through site. The sites were clean and level. Everything worked well and we were able to set up quickly. The only thing (very minor) was a stripped connector for the tv cable hook up, but they gave me an... More

We rented a creek side cabin for three adults and two dogs, and it was lovely. Very nice people at check in, great location, and plenty of room for everybody. I love that they provide not only a grill outside but also a beautiful umbrella table & chairs for four on a patio. This was fun. Like camping without the... More

We are not really camp people, but my son always wants to stay here when we go to the diamond mines. We have stayed in the smaller cabins and more deluxe ones. The cabins are always neat and clean. The staff are lovely and the guests are nice and quiet. It is a good family environment.

This campground in far from KOA quality. Campground needs much TLC. In many areas, lawn and campsites need maintenance. Many campsites were close together. Some pull-thru sites are available. Our campsite was all mud, unlike many of the other sites which were rock. During a minor rain storm, we had mud flowing through our site down to the river. We... More
