The cottages allow you to camp comfortably if you want to still have the option of using a private bathroom, cook indoors, and have a heated room if it gets too cold outside. Twin and full size beds have thin, vinyl covered mattresses, but you bring your own bedding and can add a padded mattress cover to make it less firm. Staff checking us in and out were very friendly. Would definitely recommend this place to families in the summer. Water park is next door.

We spent 15 nights in the Adirondacks….This place was by far the worst place we stayed …the most expensive….lots of rules but none enforced. Loose pit bulls…dog poop every where …coolers left out all night. everyone is scared of the dark and leaves spotlights on all night shining in your windows. Strictly a trailer park full of folks who know nothing about camping or courtesy to your neighbors. As usual the most expensive sites are ALWAYS the worst…avoid if possible..

We visit yearly and have never had problems staying in the cabins. We left with bites all over and both had trips to Urgent Care for our reactions. The manager stated they had an exterminator examine the room and did not find any evidence. We will never book again! Be Aware!

Thank you for sharing your concerns. We are sorry that you had an unpleasant experience with bug bites here during your stay. We always investigate any bug incident very thoroughly to help reassure our guests, or to assist them if anything like bed bugs are confirmed. We worked with you, kept you informed and immediately shut the unit down until we could get our professional here to inspect and treat if necessary. As discussed with yourselves, we were able to have the pest control company that we work with come the next day, it was thoroughly inspected by a professional and no evidence was found of any bed bug activity. We shared this information with you, even offered to share the reports with you, and kept in contact to reassure you that this was not what you had encountered at that time. We are sorry that you did not believe the information given and offered, our sole intention was to assist you and keep you informed of the process, which we did.

For a “camping cabin” these cabins were very nice. The room was very clean and tidy with no weird smells. I didn’t see a single bug the entire time I was there. I do wish that they had A/C in addition to heat though. It was 90 degrees when I was there with no fan or air conditioning it was very hard to sleep. The fire pit was small and made out of stones, but it worked fine for a basic camp fire. The campground bathrooms were very clean and our cabin was very private with no noise. The campground offered a lot of fun additional activities, we especially enjoyed the peddle boat rentals.

Very nice park. Liked the privacy of our campsite. Loved the bear and deer visit almost every day. Wish the remote sites had sewer hook up though the bathrooms weren't far away. The only thing I would suggest is to let the campers know when they call & have sites 101-105 that you have quite a ways you have to back in, so you need to be good at it ! Wanted to book next year when we checked out but both girls were on the phone and I waited close to 15 minutes but they were still on them so we left. Had to write on a card to tell them which spot we were leaving from. Wish there would have been more help.

Still so disappointed in the end of our trip. We had such a good week and it was totally ruined on the last night. I was in the lodge on Saturday night using the Wi-Fi to try and find somewhere to have dinner. An associate came over and made a joke about “checking my fan mail”. Chuckled and replied no, just trying to figure out dinner. She was real nice and gave me a couple recommendations which was great. Got talking about a couple places and she mentioned don’t go to Slickers tonight because it “will be retarded”. I was absolutely stunned. Now she didn’t know this, but my son has Down Syndrome. The thing that really pissed me off was that when she said it, she said it much quieter than the rest of the conversation. Which tells me she knows better than to use that kind of language. Unfortunately, I don’t think we will be able to return next year.

Our family enjoyed a wonderful stay in one of the well kept cottages again this year. We enjoyed the beach, the paddle boats and water Safari! We had a great, relaxing and fun time. Thank you! See you next year.

Visited 4/29-5/1/2022 , rented a Cottage with 2 other women while our friends camped in the camping area. We had a wonderful time, a little chilly, but the place was quiet and it didn't rain so that is always a plus. We signed up for the "Girl's Night Out" package, which gave us a complimentary 6 pack of beer, a bundle of wood, 2 20 oz beverages at the store coffee bar, a coupon for $1 off at the local movie theater and a 60 dollar gift certificate to be used at a list of local restaurants/bars. Fees for three ( $360 for 2 nights) for the Cottage (includes a bathroom with shower, mini kitchen with a table and chairs, microwave, hotel sized fridge and a freezer section, and two stovetop burners. There was a broom and dust pan, and garbage pails included. The beds. Bunk beds in two separate rooms, and beds are on wooden slats with a plastic coated pad over that. If I ever rent again, I will FOR SURE bring a padded foam mattress to go on top. Or an air mattress. The beds were hard as rocks. Bring your own linens--a Queen set made it easy for the bottom bunk, twin up top. Bring a bath mat for the shower. Bring garbage bags. I wish I had brought a fan. The steps up into our Cottage were very steep. If you need an accessible for all cottage, ask for that as they are available. Same with cabins as I walked around. We enjoyed our time here, would definitely go back. We had dry weather, so that makes camping always better. We walked into town and enjoyed food and beverages there. The Souvenir Village store gave us a discount because so many of us bought T shirts. Lake Serene in the campground is so pretty. A few of our group walked the Lake trail--said it needed some repairs on some of it's walkways, but they had a good time. They recommend hiking shoes or sturdy sneakers. The roadways are gravel based with rocks--so not great for scooters. Very friendly staff when we were there--of course way off season so it was not crowded. It is a large and well maintained place. Would definitely go again!

Thank you for taking the time to share your wonderful experience with us here at Old Forge Camping Resort! 😊 Our mattresses in the cabins and cottages are standard camping mattresses. We can often arrange for an extra mattress for your bed if available, next time please let us know if that would help and we can have one delivered to your site prior to arrival if we have extra. Some people who are looking for added comfort bring extra blankets or mattress toppers with them too. Looking forward to having you again in the future!!

We have stayed at Old Forge Camping Resort many times and we always have a wonderful time. We try to go on the sort of off times so it's not too crowded, but there is always still plenty to do. Our favorite weekend is their Aloha Weekend. We're hoping once it's saft they can start that up again because it's so fun, with lots of fun activities. We usually stay in a cottage, but this past time we stayed in a cabin. The cabins are small but very nice and clean. There was a nice shared bathroom/shower area right nearby and great outdoor sink area for doing dishes. Everyone we've ever interacted with there has been super pleasant. Although it's a little tough to traverse at certain spots, I love to take a walk each morning around Lake Serene. We also love to go out to Bald Mountain and some of the others nearby, like Rocky Mountain and Black Bear Mountain. We've made lots of happy family memories in Old Forge and always like introducing friends to Old Forge Camping Resort. Please keep up the good work!

We have a family of 25 that have gone to OFCR annually, except for last year during the pandemic. Just spent this past weekend there, 4 days. The lodge's men's bathroom smelled so bad, you could smell it on the porch of the main lodge. The bathrooms in the cabin areas were not kept clean, like in the past. The washers and dryers were working at 50%. One of the shower heads were broken and unusable. The cabins were all very clean and the campsites around the cabins were well kept. A little money put into maintaining and upgrades of the bathrooms, would go a long ways! Just not the experience we have had in the past.
