Small campsite with sites being very close together. Not much privacy (or space) between them. Highway runs alongside the campsite so the traffic noise in the morning is very loud. Bathrooms were clean and the staff was very nice and courteous. Few showers, so if it's a crowded day you may be waiting. Great place to stay as a pass through, but wouldn't really make it a destination. There is a nice waterfall a very short walk away.

Phenomenal fishing. Weak, weak camping. Very close to the famed Ausable River with boundless excellent trout fishing. But the campground has always been below par. Little to no privacy between the sites as they are almost all scattered throughout a grassy field. The campground is small and reservations are a must, given the proximity to Lake Placid and all the hiking and cycling opportunities in the region. But the facilities are in dire need of an update and depending on the year can vary from old to utterly gross. I am no wilting flower and am used to backcountry camping, but this place has been going downhill for years. Heart Lake and the ADK Loj in the High Peaks are much better places to stay, but farther from the water.
