this was my first year, went with another family. The owner "George" I believe was rude, condescending, could not care less about anyone, once he has your money. The restroom was disgusting! It was a horrible experience

Close to the water and lots of options for boating fishing, water skiing, playground etc. Site with a view of the lake. Staff were pleasant and helpful. Close to Winnepisauki and so much to do. Would go there again.

We stayed Thursday-Monday over Memorial day weekend and had a great time! We checked in and the lady at the desk was very friendly and told us how to get to our campsite and assured me I would do fine backing in my camper and gave me a couple tips as this was our maiden voyage. The transient sites are very spacious, woodsy and offer views of the cove. A downfall is that there are only 3 transient sites with sewer hook-up. There is a cute little beach where kids play and adults sit in the sun. There is plenty to do on the water, boating and fishing off the docks was very popular as well as floating on rafts. There is a path that you can take to walk to Weirs beach and there are other activities up the road such as go carts, climbing elements and mini golf. The people that we met here, seasonals and transients, were very friendly as I have been to other campgrounds where they are a bit snooty. Other staff members I encountered were friendly and the owner even asked me if I need a ride back to my site in his golf cart one time. The bath house was clean. The other downfall is that they take only cash or check. I would of reserved for next year but didn’t have a cash or check to do so. I will definitely be back to Paugus Bay campground, we loved it!

We have been going there for 3 years the first year we were there for one weekend the second year we were there for the for the whole Bike Week. We had car trouble and we're late getting there I called them 5 times to tell them not to rent Us site we are coming we had to pay somebody $300 to tow a camper up there, and lo and behold they put us on their website as a no-show and rented out a site I was very upset after paying $300 to have our camper to go there and the response I got from them was keep it up and you won't be coming back here at all. They tried to say that I only made one phone call so when we got there I showed the woman behind the desk all five phone calls that I had conversations with them about us showing up late now mind you we already sent our deposit. They ask the people to move and we were given a site for the 9 days. We get home a month later I send the deposit for this year never received anything I finally contacted them they only have records of us being there one year I sent them pictures cuz we had a tent the first year the camper the second year to prove that would been there but they have no idea that we were there. And lo and behold they rented our campsite for the first weekend I have it in print on an email I said okay you know what we'll take it for that week and the weekend after they stopped answering my emails, finally got back to me and said oh no it's all rented so once again they lied. I have never in my life been treated so rude and disrespected these people should be ashamed of themselves. They have no idea on how to take or keep a reservation and they constantly lie. You can show them proof and black and white and they will stand there and tell you it's not true.
