“Stay Away from the Mohawk Campground”
Reviewed July 28, 2007

Awful...don't stay here in Lake George! My husband and another couple make reservations here for a long weekend. We arrived to find only 40 campsites. All of the campsites are on top of each other, there is no personal space. The campground was very run down. The bathroom was absolutely disgusting. No one cleaned them the entire weekend, there were dead bugs stuck to the showers and cobwebs everywhere. Many of the toilets were not working.

They advertised a beach, which was more like a boat launch, very small, and a long walk. They also have a sign for a beach "playground", but there is no playground in the camp. The camp was full of unsupervised teenagers drinking at all hours of the night, don't expect any quiet time in the night as none of the camp personnel enforce any of their rules.

Bottom line: Don't go to this campground expecting clean facilities and relaxation because you will get neither.

Stayed July 2007

My wife and i stayed here for only one night and i wasn't particulary impressed.
First of all the campground is relatively small with campsites placed on every inch of available dirt. There is virtually no buffer between sites, there was an ugly wire fence on the border of the property where our tent was and you can see the neighboring property's cabins. In another part of the campground the border is fenced by a large wooden barrier that looks like a small sound barrier or something; no exactly pretty.
There are no Lake front campsites. There are sites near the lake but you can't see the lake. There apparently is a swimming beach but we didn't go to it and thus can't review it.
Each site provides electric, water, fire ring and picnic table.

The campground was quite dirty with wrappers and various other reminders of previous campers scattered around. I didn't see any evidence of scheduled cleaning of the bathrooms or grounds.
The bathrooms were of a decent size and appeared relatively clean but there was no hand soap and considering that the dispenser looked like it has been broken for awhile my guess is there hasn't been soap for awhile.

The check in staff are teenagers and they do their jobs well but i wondered if adults were ever working on the property! They do sell some items but don't have the greatest selection. There is a small game room.

I guess one thing that seemed positive was you could pick out whichever campsite you wanted the bad thing was that none of them seemed appealing.

I was surpised that a place could be so unattractive located within an area that is one of the more beautiful places i've seen!

I wouldn't recommend this campground.
