The camp ground is very well maintained. We were in a cabin. We thought we were going to be along the river but ended up across the street overlooking the road. Not a great vista. That was a little disappointing. We had one sub-par experience with the reception desk. When we called to ask a question the employee who answered... More

This campground is really beautiful sitting right on the West Canada River. The staff are very sweet and helpful. The campground was sold out, so it was packed and full of kids. We travel without kids but the grounds are big enough it was not too close. The owners were delightful and invited us back to dine with them on... More

We were in a deluxe creekside cabin. Step outside and there's the creek with people tubing down. They provide an outdoor table and umbrella, 2 lounge chairs and a gas grill on a concrete patio. As expected, everything in the cabin is compact, stove has 2 burners, small refrigerator (no freezer space), bathroom with shower, small table with 4 chairs.... More

The Herkimer KOA borders the beautiful West Canada Creek. Tent camping on a Friday night cost 40.00 (let's be real, the only real camping is tent camping) and includes a small plot of land with a picnic table and fire pit. Negatives: 1. If you're looking for something rustic and mostly quiet this is not place for you. There are... More

We stayed in the rustic cabins on the hill near the Herkimer Diamond Mine. It was quiet and within easy walking distance of the mine where you can dig and crack rocks to find crystals. To cool off on the hot days we tubed down the nearby river. The other half of our group stayed in the larger, solar cabin... More

The wifi here is very poor. Verizon cell signal is very minimal. Our electrical power at camp site 71 was lost twice. The staff is stretched too thin (i.e) they don't have enough qualified help. The creek by the facility is nice. Otherwise, I'll be hard pressed to return here.
