If you have a smartphone or tablet, look for an app called RVParky. I highly recommend this app for finding RV parks anywhere. You can put in a city or town and find all parks in the area. It will display a map showing them or a list of parks in the area you are looking for. Often you can link to the website of a park or it lists the phone number. It's really handy and I look at it often just to see what parks are in a town I'm thinking about.

RV Parky is great and you can use "Reserve America" to find availability in NY State parks.

Not super close to where you indicate, but last year we stayed at 3 places in your general area:

Long Point State Park - near 1000 islands area - peninsula on a bay - beautiful water views

Meacham Lake State Park - very nice lake for canoeing - in the Adirondack National Forest

North Pole Resorts - near Whiteface Mtn. - 30 minute drive to Lake Placid.

As was stated, the two state parks you can access info and reservation via the state parks website.

At North Pole, we stayed on the wooded side. The riverside was very crowded with tight spots. We prefer shaded sites that are not packed in like sardines.

We have stayed in several from just OK to very nice plus many of the state campsites. This is the usual site I start with before looking at RV Park Reviews: Campground Owners of New York - Go Camping New York!

We stayed here, KOA Association Island, a couple years ago and could watch ships on the river heading to or from the Great Lakes 1000 Islands / Association Island KOA | Camping in New York | KOA Campgrounds. Unfortunately 'on-season' it has gotten pretty expensive for some though we stayed late in the season and it was right on the acceptable price for us. Here's a photo or two of what you can expect:

.....and from the back of our campsite:

If you are near Tupper Lake, State CG's such as Fish Creek Pond and Rollins Pond are great, very busy with a couple hundred sites each but have some length restrictions plus are dry camping only with a dump station.

We are enjoying a semi-seasonal at a small CG at Westport, NY along Lake Champlain as a jump off point for trips elsewhere. There are no length restrictions there (Barber Homestead CG).

Many inside the Adirondack Park borders CG's have been hurt by the Adirondack Park Agency regulations that have made it very difficult to upgrade and expand so are not all in the best of condition which in turn limits their income and ability to provide as good services as you would like to see ....... and I'll leave it at that.

I wonder if Wilmington Notch State Park at the base of Whiteface ski mountain is still open? If in lake Placid take the boat tour of Lake Placid. I thought it was interesting. Looking forward to visit there again. Doing Vermont this August instead.

May I suggest a great website: campadk.com. This site covers upstate New York Camping in all DEC and Sate Park Campgrounds. It features multiple pictures of every campsite at every campground in the north country with address and phone information. This site is the best of its kind I have ever seen! If you like larger sites in natural settings this is the place to start your search!

Happy Camping!
