My preferred style of campground - Quiet, private sites with lots of large trees up in the Adirondacks, oh and i do everything i can to get a water site.. Some of my favorites have been Fish Creek Ponds, Moffit beach and Lake Eaton.
My kids have always enjoyed the places i like but they prefer the more private owned places with all the activities and amenities. They like Old Forge Camping resort, i have fun but not my favorite.
Have you been to Lewey Lake? We stay at a lot the S.P.'s in the ADK's and that is our favorite spot. Just don't tell anybody else - its getting harder and harder to get a water site...
We also like the row of sites right on the St. Lawrence Seaway at Cedar Point - great spot - but you are very close to your neighbors. Also Wellesly Island SP in that area. Letchworth, Watkins Glenn, and Sampson SP's in the Finger Lakes are nice. We've also been trying to work our way through the SP's along Lake Ontario. Haven't found the perfect spot there yet.
Our kids have always been big fans of Old Forge Camping Resort too. We go for 3-4 nights in July so they can do the water park. But, this has become our "go-to" place for the off season. We are going to paddle fest this weekend (still off-season rate - $22.50 a night for full hookups on a lake front site). Then we'll do a fall weekend and a winter cottage weekend to cross-country ski and snowmobile. July and August, we mostly stick to state parks in the ADK's but for the rest of the year, we've really been going mostly to Old Forge. And Nick's Lake SP in Old Forge has some nice sites too.
