Great site

What does blueberry patch campground offer? Large camp sites with a picnic table large enough for 6 adults (squeezed together), metal fire pit with grill, large tent footprint and space for 2-3 vehicles to park.

For you fellow hammock campers reading this don’t worry! Most of the sites are compatible for hammocks, some sites you may have to be more creative to make it work.

You can stay at this site for up to 14 days at $15pn (bring cash). There are two bathrooms on the site and bear proof dumpsters as well. There are many locals selling fire wood bundles for $5 each so no problems getting a fire going. Lastly for this part BRING WATER. There are no water sources near the site. There is a gas station about 15 minutes away on route 79 so make sure to fill up on water and snacks.

The site is great. Lots of amenities and individual sites. They aren’t too far away from each other so you don’t feel completely isolated but far enough away to allow some privacy. There are some trails nearby and are worth a hike.

Great Campground

The sites are roomy. We had one that backed up to the creek, it was great to sit at the campfire and hear the water. So much to do, pool is awesome, the kids loved the playgrounds and mini golf and the hay ride. The owner and staff were super nice. We will definitely be going back at least once a year.

Great place

Great place to camp or even go for the day. Beach is a nice place to go and relax. Also can walk the pier

Shady and lots to do

So close to the swimming area and lots of hiking trails. Also within 10 minutes of the town. Beautiful area

Peaceful spacious campsites

You can hear the waterfall nearby from the campground. Beautiful area with a hiking trail to get to the lake or taughnock falls. One of my favorite areas

Excellent

Have been coming here for many years! It may not have changed much but still an awesome place to camp especially with kids! Bathrooms and showers are kept very clean in all circles and they have added a new up to date playground! Only draw back is all out of staters are charged $5 more each night to camp which I think is very unfair!

Good weekend

Pick this park has it was going to be my sons first trip camping. It’s a smaller park with a small hiking trail around the lake there is swimming at the lake with lifeguards, only down side was it had just one central bathroom for the whole campground having to wait for shower stalls was a little issue but very hot water even after waiting which was good and depending where your camp site is it’s a bit of a walk to it..

Crystal blue lake!

As a long-time resident of Syracuse, this state park has always been one of my favorites to go to. The lake is the biggest draw, it's crystal blue and impeccably  well maintained. You can take a walk around the lake and then stop at the beach to cool off. Connected to the beach is a food pavilion, grilling up burgers and serving frosty treats.  The campsites are spacious, the bathrooms are clean and well-kept, and the playgrounds are newer models. As a group of four, two adults and two kids under ten, all had a great time.

Our campsite, was directly in front of a small playground so it made it easy to sit in our lawn chair and watch the kids play. The bathroom was only a little farther than the playground and had a sink to wash your dishes in. 

The camp office is located just when you drive in, and everyone was very friendly. A campstore is also a short walk from the campground and has the necessities one may need.

I couldn't complain about anything other than wishing the sun stayed out longer on the trip.

Mosquito free campground

Have been camping here off & on since I was 12 (1975). Great place for trails, fishing, swimming & plain camping. There are electric & non-electric sites as well as a Cabin Colony. Pet friendly

Absolutely Breath Taking

This park is beautiful and very clean. The water is Crystal clear and very blue, you will think you are in the Caribbean Islands. We visit this park very frequently to rent a boat or to hike the trails.

Water sites are amazing

Was here with a camper on a lake accessing site. Sites are fairly big but not completely separated. Having the kayaks were great, there’s so much to explore, and town is right down the road.

Great Campground

Well maintained and friendly staff. Clean facilities. Most sites can accommodate large rigs with full hookups. Reservations recommended especially during summer weekends. Well priced $42 per night for full hookups. Campground offered two free hours of WiFi which is week but is currently being updated. This campground offers a well maintained-non heated pool although costs $2 per person to use even for campers. Overall excellent campground

Close to home

Verona Beach State Park is nice and close to home. Also close to Utica and Rome. The kids love to hang out at the splash pad and the state recently revamped some of the playgrounds.

A nice campground

Sites were a nice size. The hookups are staggered every other site, but the owners lent us a power cable extension for no-charge.

Family friendly campground

Range of camping available from non electric to sites with electric also cabins are available. 2 swimming, sand beachs on lake Ontario with diving area in the canal that leads to a pond that has excellant fishing. Canoes and paddle boats available. Many hiking trails are around the campground some that lead to secluded trails and secluded areas of other Lake Ontario beaches. Close to town of Fairhaven that has several dining options.

Beautiful

Convenient to the highway with 24 hour shuttles to the casino 5 minutes away, yet quiet and beautifully maintained. Offers a pool, playground, hiking trail, fishing pond, paddleboat rentals, camp store, very clean bath houses throughout, maintained sites, fire rings at each site and organized in loops to offer wooded and full sun sites depending on what you are looking for. Visited at least once a year since 2016 with our most recent visit being June 2018. Hoping to visit again this season.

Our family’s annual go to.

Best campground in the Finger Lakes area. Reserve early thru Reserve America! Lake access & beach area, playgrounds for kids, bicycling, close to area wineries, etc. Large sites, easy access. super clean bath houses, safe, no seasonals. This is a past military training base, large open spaces. Military museum on property. Cons: no water or sewer on sites; dump stations, water available at stations; bring your hoses & prepare to conserve.

Gorgeous lakes with hiking trails and nice campsites

Full hookup camping loop is nice. Sites could be a little larger but it’s ok. Restrooms and showers could be cleaned a bit more. But I have a shower in my camper so it won’t hold me from camping there again. Lots of hiking and the beach is ok. Playgrounds are decent. Overall a nice place to camp and stores are 5-10 minutes away if you need anything.

Verona Beach State Park Campground

Awesome campground. Clean bathhouses were nice. Wood was for sale by camp host at 50 cents a piece. Campground sits on the edge of Lake Oneida with a nice camper’s beach and trail on the lake front. We stayed at site 11. As you can see sites are spacious and this one was right on the lake’s edge.

Nice location, near beautiful lake.

This campground has some electric sites but I don't think there are sewer sites (not 100% sure of that). The sites are nice, some are little close to each other but nice for group camping. A short distance (walk or by car) to the beach. The lake is a little chilly sometimes but very refreshing. There are hiking trails around the two lakes and the beach has lifeguards. Very well maintained.

Large beautiful sites.

There are no water or electric hookups but there are water spigots throughout the campground. There is a pavilion that is enclosed for everyone's use. There are nice clean bathrooms with showers. There is a public, life guarded beach. It is a wooded area on beautiful Oneida Lake. A great place to stay.

Beautiful and great hiking!

We stayed a week and absolutely loved it! Great hiking to waterfalls, beautiful campgrounds and a large playground. Some sites have shared fresh water hookup between the sites.

Clean and Peaceful

We stayed here during our cross country road trip in September of 2017. We arrived late at night due to poor planning, but were happily surprised! There was little privacy between sites, but there were a few trees for shade. The bathrooms were clean, with multiple free, hot showers. I believe there were separate dishwashing sinks inside the restrooms.

I'm bummed that we missed out on the waterfall and swimming area! The photos from other Dyrt reviewers look spectacular! The swimming area was closed for the season by the time we arrived. I would definitely return.

Junius ponds

Very weird layout of the area. Not much to do. Seasonals are a little rude.

Bowman lake

This campsite was beautiful. It was very secluded and in the woods, right next to the lake as well. I enjoyed how spread out this campground is compared to most and the location is beautiful.

Taughannock falls

Very cute and small area. Close to the waterfall.

Filmore glen statepark

This campground was very small and unique. Campsite was very rocky.

Great place by the shore

Family friendly and pet friendly. Cabins right along the shore or set back a bit. You can pick based on prefernence. A very nice and calming place

The site was lacking but the surroundings were great

The campsite itself left something to be desired. The other amentities however were great and seemed to almost make up for what it was lacking. Still a relaxing place to go if you are in the area.

Great amenities

There was a lot to do at this site from boating to swimming to hiking around. A really great place to visit and take the family.
