Planning our longest trip so far to Association Island in 2 weeks.

Have you been there recently? What’d you think? Any travel suggestions?

Thanks!

Make sure you have reservations.
It's hard to give travel suggestions when we have no idea of where you are coming from.

We were there about 6 weeks ago. All of the roadways are now paved. Loved our stay there except for the May Flys. There is only one way in so there really isn’t a different route into the campground road.

We always book lake front site so we can go swimming at our site, we also bring kayaks but I'm almost sure you can rent them. They have very good ice cream & Restaurant which they will deliver your order to your site. Not sure if they will do that this year with covid cooling down & change of ownership.
White river rafting 25 miles away in Watertown, well worth a day trip!

We were there last August the week before Labor Day.
It was very nice.
It was a KOA then, now it’s a Sun Resort.
Here is my video review on YouTube

Matt, You got my curiosity up so My wife and I took a ride there yesterday. I haven't been on the island since 1975. The campground looked pretty well laid out with some larger buildings one of which looks to be still under construction as you enter the park. We drove around a bit but didn't stop anywhere so I can't tell you much about activities etc. or amenities.
The road going in is a little narrow and quite windy. I'd recommend going slowly should you meet someone coming the other way. If anyone was towing a trailer with wide towing mirrors I'd also recommend they pull the mirrors in or remove them for the trip from Rt. 178 onto Snow Shoe Rd. until you get onto the island. The vehicle coming the other way might have wide mirrors. You'll see what I mean.
There weren't many campers in the park. Didn't stop to count them but I'd guess 35 to 40. Some nice units too. The lots are gravel and look spacey. All the roads within the park are paved.
No doubt the reservations will fill quickly. Be prepared. Enjoy your stay.

Feel free to PM me and I can give you more information about the area etc. and probably answer most questions you may have, if you are interested.
