If you're stuck in the area...
Pros: The course utilized the land to the best of it's abilities. It's moderately wooded, yet a few ace opportunities in the mix. Somewhat hilly around the 6th hole. There's a couple of holes that are wrapped around a small pond in the first few holes. Otherwise there are nicely placed pins in challenging places (behind/between trees).
It's worth playing if you're in the area and can't drive to the Rocks.
Cons: While the course is pretty good at mixing it up and surprising you, it is somewhat shorter than what you would like it to be.
Area around the pond can get mucky, especially after rain.
Campers/walkers in the area
Other Thoughts: I played it forwards and backwards just for kicks. You really only need a mid range and a putter. Hell, probably just a putter.

"Executive" Disc Golf Course
Pros: Since it is at a KOA I imagine this is many people's first look at a disc golf course. Good Pro shop. Great signs. Easy to navigate. Extremely wooded, nice. Dirt tees, but not over-used so they were in fine shape. Unusually short course. Nice and challenging anyway. The $2 donation helps to limit play to campers and keeps the traffic down.
Cons: No footage on the score card. Short course (Executive ball golf courses only have par 3 holes). Closed in winter. Unique course in the middle of a disc golf desert.
Other Thoughts: Website has very little about disc golf. Should add a link to the local club and mention that Joralemon Park Disc Golf Course is 45 minutes away. Local club should post a flyer in the Pro Shop.
There is "room" for 9 more holes. A clever use of the safari concept could add alternate tees to have both the short beginner course and a more normal length course. Since the campground is closed Nov 1 - March (?) there is potential for a 3rd layout for the winter, especially if there could be alternate pin placements.

Pitch and putt
Pros: A nice warm up course before you play the "Rocks". Only a $1 to play. Campers curiosity should draw new players to the sport. Discs available at the office.
Cons: No tee boxes, just signs on the trees.
Other Thoughts: I hope the rumors are true that the course will expand to 18. Upstate NY needs more courses.

A nice warm up
Pros: Short and sweet, 9 holes. Located minutes away from Woodstock Rocks DGC. So it's nice to stop there first, a nice little warm toss, maybe 30 min to complete.
Not what I would call a Pro Shop, but they sell discs at the campground store.
Cons: Not very creative. There's room for the holes to be longer, but it's not used. Shared space with campers.
Other Thoughts: This course is a nice way to introduce campers to the sport. The guy at the desk said they'd like to expand to 18 holes. $2 to play, bring a putter and a midrange or two, won't need anything else.
