NYS actually has three parks on Lake Piesco. We stayed in Sand Point which I think is the nicest of the three. Fishing, swimming, and jet skiing are pretty much the only choices here. We had to travel to Speculator to another state park for showers. The bathrooms at Sand Point (and I assume the other two parks at Piesco) are outhouses! They smell terribly, they were not always the cleanest, and require a hike from some sites.
Nothing impressive, it was an overnight stay for us enroute to Montana. Office staff seemed friendly. Had a little barbeque shack on premises that wasn't too bad, nothing great but definitely convenient. I give them a 4 and might consider another overnight: definitely NO long stay considerations!
Very nice park! Small, was originally developed to accommodate their traveling square dance population, but has now expanded itself to all. Right on the stream if you enjoy trout fishing. We stayed about a month: weekly rates. The owner is very friendly and accommodating. Nicely shaded and well manicured sites. Very close to Lolo, MT for any conveniences one might require. We enjoyed ourselves and would definitely recommend. They do have WiFi but it had issues while we were here. Owner had indicated he may make changes to better accommodate customers. Bathrooms are cleaned periodically during the day and were spotless. Very quiet!!
We had no problem with our 34' motorhome, and I saw much larger rigs here too! We've all witnessed the "complaint drivers" ??? This park was very nice with the exception of the 10 straight days of rain! Ranger told us the weather here is totally unpredictable due to it's location with the Great Lakes. We didn't care: it was summer and we took the jet skis out anyway. Also did plenty of fishing and hiking! The park has public bathrooms with showers only. Has no hook-ups and no conveniences of any sort. I did not see a dumping station but presumably there was one somewhere in the park. If you enjoy roughing it whether it be a tent or the luxury motorhome, you will enjoy the pristine environment. No shortage of mosquitos or black flies either! It's a typical NYS park!
We were not at all impressed with the office girls attitude, and I mean attitude with capital "A"! This park is nothing spectacular, has numerous locals living here, and overall was a very bad experience! Wouldn't recommend, and we give them a Minus 10 for effort and friendliness!
We were not at all impressed with the management of the facility. They have that "I'll do it when and if I feel like it" attitude. Office hours are posted but don't count on it being anywhere near accurate! The propane price was outrageously over-priced! You have to wind your way down very narrow steep roadways to where the office is located near the lake. We had a pull thru in front of the office but many folks had to re-wind their way back up on the hill to various sites. You enter off the road thru a very elaborate security center which could easily assign camp spaces without all the other nonsense. Not much there if you don't bring your boat to fish or ski. The store might/might not be open, not close to any amenities, overall-overpriced! Wouldn't recommend or stay there again!
Nice park sits up on a ridge and fairly private. Sites were decent size. Lot of kids and mud when it rained. Had a small restaurant but never able to get in. Fits in with typical KOA standards-nothing spectacular. Nice pool for the kids. There seem to be an area in the front portion of the park reserved for the "elite"??? Beats the Glacier Park campgrounds so I give it a 5!
I grew up in the area and knew of the park. They used to drive us nuts with their promotional scams. As a camper with a motorhome it wasn't too bad. I hate the "security gate" at the entrance to the park. It's a menace to big rigs with something in-tow and the security is very questionable! My daughter used her password from the previous season and it allowed access??? How safe could that be! The park is a mixture of full timers and travelers. Wasn't a problem. Lot's of kids! As others complained, water pressure was an issue. I have all the pressure regulators on my motorhome but others were not as fortunate when the pressure surged! Bathrooms were relatively clean with decent showers (sometimes minimal pressure) but not convenient to all especially in the rain. Fairly nice store however, fairly over priced! It's in the boonies so it's a drive for any conveniences! Office staff were decent-not the best but not the worst I've encountered. They were accommodating to our needs overall. With the Hudson Valley rapidly becoming a NYC Burroughs, campgrounds are by no means as plentiful as in the past. Beggars can't be choosy! Overall, I give them a 5.
Very nice park! We stayed from August until the park closed in October. Centrally located to the many National Parks located conveniently right off Interstate 90. Owners were very friendly and accommodating. Nice pool, laundry facilities, small store etc. Rest rooms were generally clean from my once or twice using them. Newer facility, shade trees are there and growing however, shade is not very plentiful. Roads are good, sites are fairly level. For the most part, it was quiet and peaceful. Had NO monthly rates! Somewhat pricey for the long stay traveler. Overall, I would recommend the park!
We stayed in Orange City RV Resort from November 12, 2009 until we leave at the end of the month to our new home. We had a monthly rate which was very reasonable compared to other campgrounds nearby. They also offer all amenities including upscale cable TV. We stayed while we vacationed for the winter months however, with the real estate bargains, we purchased a home in Florida. We have enjoyed our stay in the park. Previous reviews indicate difficult roadways etc and that is just simply not true if you have driving skills required for these type vehicles! There are no problem areas in the park as they generally fill to capacity each year. The roads are all concrete with most sites concrete also. The park is very well groomed! It is a mixture of permanent residents and travelers but we found no problems with that issue either. It does have a lot of Canadian visitors some of which do not speak English. They keep to themselves and were never a bother what-so-ever that I encountered. The park is very safe and quiet! They have a very nice pool, pancake breakfast for those who choose to participate, horse shoes, computers for guest in the office, and several laundry facilities. We stayed on Almond Village St and our neighbors (some of which were Canadian) were all fantastic! We had street parties and everyone enjoyed themselves! We travel all over the US and I would definitely recommend this park to anyone. The office staff is very friendly and accommodating!
