I made a reservation for a five night stay with this campground. $125.00 US. On our way to the campground I had mechanical problems with my motorhome and had to return home. While still on the side of the road, I called to inform them that I would not be able to get there. I was told that that was too bad but there was no way they could refund any of my deposit. I would not have minded paying for the one night but my deposit was the equivalent of three nights and it would have been considerate to have received some of it back. In September I am sure the park was not full and had I simply driven in would probably been able to get a site with no deposit. I will not deal with these people again and wonder why Good Sam has them on the list.
As an experienced camper, I realize that camping has some risks. However, when camping at a campground and not a forest, I expect the trees to be taken care of. We had a campsite where a branch fell from high above and landed 10 ft from my child playing in the dirt! When we told the office, they said they would send someone in the morning. Fine. However, It rained all night and at 1130 am, no one had come to look at the trees. Another branch had fallen near our daughter this time. My husband talked to the office again and some guys came out. Their response was that it was too high for them to do anything and they haven't had a branch fall on anyone yet in the years. My husband was ready to leave and I would have if it wasn't five hours away and ruin our vacation with friends. I went down to talk to the office and their response was that it was my responsibly to watch my child. Well duh. I'm watching them but I can't protect them from falling limbs of trees. They were unsympathetic and unwilling to do anything until we suggested a new site. They repeated that they have never had a branch fall on anyone...yet. Why take that risk? Wouldn't you want to protect your patrons by being proactive and take care of the trees? I wish I took a picture of all the dead limbs on the trees. 1 branch, okay but 2 within 12 hours?! Take care of the trees!!
Also, if you want to hear "who let the dogs out" and creepy banjo music from 730 am until 9 pm from the park next door, then you should camp here. For the rest of the population that would like nature and quiet, not the place!
Also, the bathrooms appear to be nice at the beginning, but ran out of toilet paper in all the stalls except for the clogged one, and the clogged one didn't get fix in the time we were there. There is no ventilation in the showers so you leave wetter than when you went in.
All in all, Customer service sucks and will not recommend nor visit again.
LOVE, this family friendly - clean camp ground! Always look forward to returning.
My husband and I love this campground. We have stayed at many campgrounds in Lake George, but always came back to King Phillip’s. The office staff is super friendly, the guys working on the grounds very nice, bathrooms are always clean and plenty of activities. The sites are always kept nice and ready for us to arrive. Pets are welcome, they give out dog treats in the office! I would recommend this campground to everyone.
myself along with my close friends and their parents booked in jan. 2015 to this campground for the july 4th weekend. we booked for a 5 day stay. we needed 3 sites next to each other and was told no problem to the request. we all showed up july 1st. for the stay thinking we would be together, but to no avail that did not happen. i ended up on top of a hill and my friend and their parents also in different areas of the campground. my wife noticed that we were paying an extra $15.00 for our site for some reason for 30 amp service ( $ 58.50 ) per night which have been $55.50 per night. she questioned this at the office and were told we are paying for a 50 amp service site. the box carries from a 20 t0 50 amp service. my trailer only requires a 30 amp connection. they basically told her you either take it or leave it. they were vary rudd to her.we drove 7 hours to this campground and with the holiday weekend we were not going to find anything else, so we had no choice but to pay and stay. sites were small to medium in size, hard for me to park my trailer 33ft. in length in a tight spot with trees and boulders around the site. took several attempts to get in finally getting it, but no ware to park the truck. no one polices the quiet time and kids on their site at all. 11 pm and still in playground shouting keeping my friends baby up from sleeping. tryed to tell the kids to keep quiet ,trying to get the baby to sleep you get nothing but a back lash from them. that was my first and last time for me to stay there again. we will be staying somewhere @ lake george which is a beautiful place to visit for us again.
we have been camping here for many years and can't wait for them to open each year to find out what great things they have for the upcoming season. The activities for the kids are always growing and inventive to keep little ones entertained. Who doesn't love a pudding slide or flashlight candy? On the weekends the daily hayride is a bonus is our family! The family that took over this campground has done an amazing job of improving not only the overall look of the grounds but the friendliness of staff. They are so accommodating and will go out of your way to help with anything, plus, they do it with a smile. They actually enjoy what they do! The new bathrooms last year were a welcome improvement and there is always some kind of update in the works. We thoroughly enjoy this campground and can't beat the ease of getting to the village or outlets. Close to everything but yet so far away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. We have recommended this campground to many and will continue to do so.
