Raquette Lake, New York -
Karen Byron gave us this review on 01/26/09. Dates of Stay: July/2008. Will You Return? Undecided. What did you camp in? Travel Trailer
What stood out? There are sites that are primitive, which is fine if that's what you're looking for. We were not aware that our site was primitive until we got there. These sights are not actually in the campground, they are just off Route 28 and have out houses. You have access to the beach and showers and flush toilets but you have to drive to them. The primitive sites are all on the water but it is a steep bank to get to the water. The sites in the campground are quite crowded, there are a couple of nice sites though. You will have to book them early, this campground does fill up fast.
Owners and Staff: Very large campground with nice facilities. The staff was o.k., not overly polite but not rude. The sites are small unless you are in the primitive sites, they are large, private and wooded. The beach however, is absolutely gorgeous!
Camp landscaping and surroundings: Primitive sites are very nice except that they are primitive. It would have been fine if it were just my husband and I, but we had our three young children with us. There wasn't much room to ride bikes, etc. The bank was very steep to get to the water. The campground itself, seemed a bit busy for my taste. The beach was very nice, very large and well maintained.
Campsite hookups: primitive tent, There is a trailer dump site at the front of the campground. Campsite Descriptions: sunny and open, wooded, private, somewhat small, close to the road, sandy bottom, grassy bottom, pine needle bottom, picnic table, fire ring, highway noise, If you are camping with kids, I would not suggest the primitive sites. When you are looking at the map, it can be deceiving, but they are the water sites all in a long row along route 28.
Cell Phone Service: We have verizon and we did not have service until we were in the village of Raquette Lake
