    Nice place for a small campground. The pull through spaces are rather close. The canoeing is from the campground.

    So many great activities for children of all ages. Very relaxing on the river and made for a nice breeze as well. Our campsite was in A-J right on the river which was nice but made the walk in the middle of the night to the bathroom a pain. It would be nice if there were steps up the hill with a railing of some sort instead of having to walk all the way around the hill. After saying that the walk was well worth it, as the bathrooms very clean and updated if not brand new, showers were great, waters were hot! My favorite part was the glass painting...Read More

    This place looks nice from a distance but up close not so much! The pool area had big huge cracks in the concrete & a ton of bees not a normal "you're outside" amount but there had to have been a nest or two. Plus it was a very hot weekend & we walked to the pool around 12 noon & the guy was just getting there weedeating the tall grass growing in the concrete around the pool so we had to wait an hr for him to finish. That should have been done early on an 80° plus day! The playground they advertise is for toddlers so if your kids are older, ours...Read More

    This summer, I, along with my husband, 2 children ages 6 & 8, and our big dog stayed at Tall Pines Campground in our travel trailer,over the July 4th week.

After saying that the walk was well worth it, as the bathrooms very clean and updated if not brand new, showers were great, waters were hot! My favorite part was the glass painting (wine glasses) as an adult. I did take my son to the candy bar bingo which I was a little disappointed with, only because there were about 20 of people give or take and we only played one game, I have been to camps where they split them up into four games and you win 5 bars etc. Other than that had a great time and will be back!

Now the ice cream that's advertised, we didn't try any food there because there was a cat laying on the counter/bar were it's served. I love cats but I don't want them laying were I'm getting my food!! Just to let people know the showers cost money that didn't effect us because we had full hook up. The spots are very very close but clean & the staff seemed nice.

Gayle and Eddie were so accommodating and understanding and did not give our site up to someone else, but with held it for us. I have camped in many campgrounds, and Tall Pines is by far the ABSOLUTE BEST AND MOST OUTSTANDING campground that we have stayed in. I only went there because their reviews were so positive and now, we will be going back again and again. The campsites are clean, spacious, and the view of the Unadilla River is gorgeous! Our children had non stop fun there, from catching crawfish,to fishing, swimming, and taking part in the provided activities; and may I add that we had fun there, too! The camp-store is fantastic and if what you need is not there, one may drive just a few minutes down the road to the local Super Market. Lastly, the other people-- of all ages, who camp at Tall Pines are very friendly and respectful. Gayle and Eddie do an amazing job running and maintaining Tall Pines Campground. If you have not camped here, you should!
