If like like ‘Kamping,’ you’ll love Lake Placid KOA
After several years of road tripping around North America, I’ve done my fair share of camping. I absolutely love the outdoors and enjoy backpacking and camping in remote areas. However, given my position as a travel blogger, sometimes I need to be connected…while also staying fresh with a daily shower—for those times, a KOA is a great choice.
Earlier this summer I spent several days at the Lake Placid KOA, which I found to be one of the largest, and, nicest I’ve come across. In my opinion, this KOA’s greatest asset is its proximity to the Ausable River. I spent a great deal of time hiking along the banks of the river…climbing boulders, fishing and taking pictures.
KOA’s are great places to take the kids, and the Lake Placid location is no exception. There is a sports center where you can rent a bike or a canoe, a large game room, heated pool and a ton of activities.
The Lake Placid KOA is set among tall pine and white birch trees in the gorgeous Adirondack Mountains countryside. This campground features spacious RV sites with a separate tent area, as well as Kamping, furnished and deluxe cabins.

We’ve camped there several years and plan to head back there next summer, too. We’ve camped a lot of places on the east coast, and there’s no other regular destination for our family. If in the area, be sure to check out the Wilmington public beach (great for paddling, fishing, swimming, sand castle building, picnics), A & W, and the Little Supermarket (outstanding fresh made sandwiches, salads, daily specials). I could go on!
Hey Kelly, thanks so much for stopping by and sharing!
i’m more of a glamper
Then you would fit right in Hogga! 🙂
I have been going to this campground almost every year since I was 3 years old…that is going on 40 years. Now, it is the vacation that my daughter looks forward to every year. It almost feels like a homecoming when I pull into the main entrance on each visit. Our trip there is usually a 5 hour adventure from MA and it never fails that we go, we always find something new to experience. For campers, this place is a definite place to go. Rumor has it, next year that may open year round.
Hey Joe…wow, that’s quite a testimonial. Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing. Cheers, Mike
