Blackthorne Resort in East Durham, NY is such a great place to stay for the whole family...You can camp, stay in one of their motel rooms or just go for a visit to have dinner and drinks in their new bar (which is gorgeous) and maybe stay to listen to one of the bands they get in on the weekends!...

We stayed there for a dance competition. It would be an understatement to say that this place is disgusting! The hotel and grounds are terrible. We will never be back! This place deserves no stars. When I addressed my concerns with the owners they said they could care less.
