We have camped in other campgrounds but always come back to Button Bay. It is clean, has tent sites, leantos, and cabins and is well managed by courteous, helpful attendants. We began camping many years ago with 6 children; we are now seniors and continue...More

We camped in lean-tos. The sites were very well maintained as were the entire grounds. The hike to the point was pleasant. Pool was fun for kids. Bathrooms/showers a bit dated.

If you like tent camping but you like to go to bed early and/or you have difficulty falling asleep, STAY AWAY. This is an open area campsite and if you have the misfortune of having loud neighbors, you will not get a good night's sleep....More

Lovely. Peaceful ten minute walk. Beautiful views of Lake Champlain. Gorgeous views of the Adirondak Mountains. Be aware the park closes Columbus day weekend in October.

I have traveled 49 states and 7 Canadian provinces, and I've stayed in campgrounds most of those. Button Bay ranks at the TOP! I have never seen such well-maintained campsites. We spent 4 nights in early October, so the pool was already closed but the...More
