What a great place. Did a fall camping trip this past week in one of the very nice cabins. Cabin was really great and very clean and only $49 per night. The staff does a great job keeping the grounds neat and cleanThe bathroom was spotless. The front desk crew was very helpful and very friendly. Beautiful campgrounds. Will be back next fall for sure.

This year will be our 5th year staying at Old Forge Camping Resort! The first time we stayed only 3 days - by the 2nd day my kids(all 5 of them) were BEGGING to return the next Summer but wanted to stay LONGER! We tried August but now we come every July for a week! This year I asked my kids how they would feel about skipping Old Forge and going to Disney instead! I got "NOOOOOOOOOOO, we want to go to Old Forge like always and play at Water Safari and stay in the Cabins!" So...Thank You Old Forge Camping Resort! This place will hold SO MANY special memories for or Family for years to come!

We visit the Old Forge Camping Resort every summer of fall. It is our special treat to ourselves. We enjoy the beauty of the Adirondacks, and this is a perfect place to experience everything it has to offer. The entire resort is well maintained, well cared for and ideal for any age, whatever your preference. A truly enjoyable experience!

We stay at Old Forge Camping Resort every 4th of July for 3 to 4 days. We love how friendly and accommodating the staff is and the free shuttle bus to the water park is great. We have stayed at a lot of campgrounds and this one is by far the cleanest we have ever seen! The bathrooms are immaculate. We plan on returning for many years to come!

We have been camping for years and happened to stumble upon this campground, while searching online and decided to give it a try. So glad we did!!! We were pleasantly surprised and went there just about every weekend last summer, and continued to go through the fall and winter as the cabins and cottages were a nice alternative when the weather got cold. The campground and all of its facilities are very clean and well maintained. I can't say enough about the staff, they are friendly, accommodating, and very welcoming as we are now on a first name basis with them. We now consider this our "second home,” as it’s a great escape to the woods where you can enjoy the outdoors and all the wildlife that the Adirondacks has to offer!!! We have been fortunate to experience this first hand, from the deer welcoming us when we arrive to the occasional bear taking a stroll by to head to the stream for a drink. The nature trail is a great walk through the woods that encircles Lake Serene. What a great place to unwind, relax, and enjoy nature.

Our family has been going to the Adirondacks in Old Forge for many years and staying at Old Forge Camping Resort and enjoying all the different packages the camping resort offers. You can walk into town, enjoy the Enchanted Forest Water Safari park, take the hiking trail around Lake Serene or just relax at your camp site. The staff at the camping resort is so friendly they treat you like family and are always there to help you anyway they can. When it's time to leave the camping resort we are sad and can't wait for our next time to visit the camping resort and the staff. We have and will continue to recommend Old Forge Camping Resort to family and friends for a camping experience you won't forget.

My family and I have been camping at Old Forge Camping Resort for over 15 years. It’s a place that when my children grow up, they will be bringing their families. We have camped there during every season of the year and every year there seems to be something new and exciting. The entire staff is friendly, helpful, and they go out of their way to accommodate your needs! If a problem arose it was handled promptly and thoroughly. We have camped in everything from the cottages to cabins to RV sites and every time we were satisfied with our site. I cannot say enough about staying with them because it’s always enjoyable. If I were to give any advice....BOOK EARLY!

If you are looking for a unique and adventuresome camping experience Old Forge Camping Resort, in Old Forge, N.Y. is the place to go. My husband and I visited the campground many years ago and had a wonderful time. We now return every summer and fall. It is like our second home. The staff and maintenance crew are the best, always friendly and helpful. The resort is very well maintained and the facilities exceptionally clean. We love the fact that there are many activity choices within the resort and in the local area. We can have a great day hiking and then enjoy dinner at one the fine restaurants in the area, all within a very close range. But, my favorite thing to do is pull up my lounge chair and enjoy the beautiful surroundings, watch all the activities of nature, and listen to the sounds of the woods. It is truly a very relaxing experience! Our hope is to continue our visits to the Camping Resort for many years. We would highly recommend Old Forge Camping Resort experience to anyone who loves camping.

I could write a book about all the great memories that my family and I have experienced at Old Forge Camping Resort. As soon as I see the sign, pressures from work melt away. Our children exit the vehicle leaving behind their iPods, iPhones, and other electronic devices. They do not even miss them-that would not happen at home. We have undisturbed time together, enjoying the outdoors. We use Old Forge Camping Resort as our base of operations, all year round, for whatever outdoor adventures we have planned in the area. The staff has made us feel as if we have a home away from home in Old Forge.

I would like to send a little note regarding my stays at Old Forge Camping Resort – First, the entire staff is so friendly and accommodating, even when we visit during a busy time like Halloween Weekend. I own and operate Yorkville Memorials which makes it difficult for me to vacation far away for long periods of time – I’m so glad that a great place like Old Forge Camping Resort is in our back yard. The Cottages/Cabins are clean, comfortable and very inviting. When we stay for the Halloween Weekend my granddaughter is already planning our next year’s visit – and we haven’t even checked into our Cottage. Again, the staff is great! We love all the activities that they plan (especially the tie dyeing). We have stayed a time or two on a regular weekend and have had just as much fun—I’m hoping to get there one weekend in the winter when we can snowmobile and snowshoe. Believe me I tell everyone about Old Forge Camping Resort – it truly is a great place!!!

My family and I frequent Old Forge Camping Resort several times each year. They are very accommodating and hospitable. We have had staff go out of their way to ensure we have a stress free experience. The staff knows us by first name - even over the phone without us telling them! Our 5 year old is particularly fond of cabin 85, which we are able to stay in each time we come. The site is always clean and freshly raked when we get there and the cabin is ready for use! The children's activities are great for children of all ages and a perfect way to socialize your little ones. Our visits to the water park are always made easy with the convenient transportation (on site shuttle) that has provided us with door to cabin service in the past. I highly recommend Old Forge Camping Resort for anyone who likes to enjoy the camping experience with hotel like accommodations. We have also tented there in the past; the tent sites are spacious and perfect for pitching a tent! We have been coming to this resort for many years and will no doubt continue to spend our Old Forge vacations here!

Just a quick note to say “thank you” to the whole OFCR staff. We have been coming for several years and have stayed in the cabins and cottages which was always a good time and some our best memories ever ;). We recently purchased our first 5th and needed a lot of help, since we had never even driven one. All we had to do was ask and there were 2-3 people there. Judi said she would take care of us and as usual, she did. Jack, Jim, and Tim and others were beyond helpful and helped us with everything from parking to leaving. They never rushed us and made sure we were comfortable. They even came by to check on us several times. I can honestly say they made it so much more enjoyable and comfortable for us. They taught us a lot. I doubt there is any staff anywhere like the great staff at OFCR. We cannot wait to come back and would recommend this beautiful campground and great staff to anyone. Hope to see you all soon!
