“FRIENDLY AND RELAXING HOME AWAY FROM HOME”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013

We just got home today from a great weekend at Shadow Brook. It was our second time there this year and we have booked another weekend in September. "Halloween Weekend" There are lots of activities for the kids.. a very family friendly camp ground!
The campground is clean and well maintained. When you get to your site it looks as if no one has been there ahead of you and we try to leave our site the same way when we depart.
The owners are friendly and go out of their way to make your camping experience a pleasure.
They make you feel like a welcome guest.
The restrooms and showers are immaculate, private and clean. It's dog friendly and everyone picks up after their 4 legged friends, no random poop lying around the campground (not like some of the bigger, higher priced campgrounds we have been to)
The price of wood is reasonable and they deliver it right to your site in a tractor bucket!!! :)
The pool is beautiful and we spent quite sometime swimming and lying in the sun while other people in our party took in the fishing at the pond. Lots of bass and catfish who seem to really love Nathan's hotdogs!!! LOL
We all had a great camping experience and are looking forward to returning. Thank you "Shadow Brook family" we had a great weekend and can't wait to come back!!!

We just got back from a couple days of camping Cooperstown Shadow Brook Campground. The place was very clean. The showers were hot, private and clean. We didn't have kids with us but the kids there were having fun fishing at the pond and swimming.
We were there during the week not a weekend it was very quiet and nice.

We went as a family of five July 19th-21st, which was Christmas in July week at the campground. The kids are 15, 6, and 3, and all had a fabulous time with all the activities scheduled for the weekend. They enjoyed face painting and hand painted tattoos, and an interactive music show, where they played instruments, and were welcome to step up to the mic to tell jokes or sing, if they so desired. That was followed by a wagon ride with Santa, including a guitar player to sing Christmas carols, and a little gift for each child, which was then followed up by a magic show! Besides all that, the kids also fished the very very stocked pond, where my 6yr old caught 20 fish in one day, played on the playground, swam in the pool, shot some pool, and made many friends. The cabin we stayed in was great, with a huge/wide bunk bed and what seemed to be larger than a queen size bed across from the bunks. It included a dresser, fan, microwave, and small fridge as well as a picnic table inside. There was plenty of space for all we had brought, unlike some other cabins we have rented at other campgrounds. Bathrooms were completely clean and well maintained, as was the pool, showers, and entire campground. We will definitely be going back again for the Halloween weekend in September. My 6yr old said this is the best campground ever, and I have to say it was a very enjoyable experience for the 5 of us.

We rented a cabin and tent site which we were able to get right next to each other. We came with 9 kids who are our current and previous foster children- many who have never camped before. Very stocked pond- every child caught several fish! Many activities on Saturday to keep everyone entertained. A little snug in regards to space and we drove about 2 miles down the road for cheaper items most times. The pool was fabulous and clean. Nice playground for our younger kids. Very friendly owners and staff -Would definitely go back!

Room Tip: more space with cabin rentals

We stayed for two nights and had a fun time. The positives: the grounds are very well kept and the bathrooms and swimming pool are clean. Fellow campers were friendly and well-behaved and when quiet hours began at 10 pm, it was truly quiet - one of the quietest campgrounds in which we have ever stayed. The pond was well stocked and provided much fishing fun for my husband and son.

The negatives: size of the sites vary by a lot and some only have views of the RV in the next site. Our site was between two roads near the entrance so there was a lot of traffic both coming and going. And while there are three restroom buildings, only one has showers - that is four showers for the entire campground.

Overall we were pleased with our stay and would definitely consider returning, just not to site #9!

We rented an RV and got the one right behind the office. No piece and quiet! The sites are on top of each other. The RV shook when ever we moved! Nothing like the pictures. Would never go back there! The showers were free though. The women's bathroom smelled like sewer. Oh and we lost electricity the first night and were told it was because we used the microwave and the air conditioner which we didn't! UGH!!!! If you are camping in an RV you have certain expectations. If I was camping in a tent I have different expectations but the sites are still too close together!

We spent two nights at the campgrounds and it couldn't have been better. The owners are terrific and very helpful. The grounds are very well kept, clean bathrooms and showers, along with a wonderful pool. Grounds are about 15 minuts out of Cooperstown. As unbelievable as it may sound, there were no mosquitos! The pond looked to be full of fish and the store was well stocked. Wifi worked well for email and web surfing, but could use a boost for video from our camp site.
