Outstanding place

This campground has so much to offer, nice store, pizza place (DELIVERS) , bands, cabins, trails. I loved it the lake was beautiful. As soon as you enter the campground there is someone outside waiting to help you.

Waterfront beauty

Everywhere you look its beautiful Lake Ontario. A campground that should be added to your bucket list.

Beautiful Park. Well kept.

Spacious FHU sites. Pull thru and back ins

Very nice TT campground

Very nice thousand trail campgrounds. Very large I believe it's 1300 + sites. We went late summer show it was becoming offseason. Most amenities close down. Pool, swimming at Lake Ontario beach, etc.. well kept campground. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. One staff member Mike told us about Salmon River Falls. We went and it is a "must see" while there. Basically 15 minutes from the campground. That is by RV as we had no toad this time. Mexico Point is another close attraction to see as well. Was first time for my wife that close to any of the finger lakes. She loves it!

This place is beautiful!

This campground was lovely. The park has lots to do and had a trail to the lake from the campground. There are two loops of camps. I found the tent loop to be nicer and more secluded. They have showers and full bathrooms. 10/10 recommend.

Love it

Near the play ground they have a nice game room pool, air hockey, video games. There is a change machine too.

Love it here

Camping again in our favorite spot. We camped so much here we got a free nights stay!

Oneida shores campground

Nice campground been there many of times. Water and electric only. Bathroom at campground. And Nice bathhouse over near beach with pass entry for campers only for showers. Close to beach. Only issue. Camp host actually came and took our wood for our campfire! So keep an eye in your campfire pit!

Green Lakes State Park campground

Was nice to have a full hookup campsite. Very well maintained. And love having separate showers with your own toilet and sinks.

Good for all

I have been there many times. Beautiful park with nice beach and great fishing. Close to town and lots to do.

Love it here

Took a video to show our favorite camp site.

Nice

Fun place. Access to water and swimming. Nice playgrounds. We kayaked in the lake it was a lot of fun.

Not great

We arrived late around 9. The fire pit was dirty with trash. The water hookups we’re stuck or coated with paint. The site next to us had the same problem. The mosquitoes were aweful! We went in June

Love this place

This is our favorite place! Not too far away clean! Friendly family owned! Pool, frog pond, catch and release fishing. Has a nice camp store. They do events for kids every weekend. If you camp 6 nights in one season you get a night free!

Great Beach, Electric Sites

This state park is on the site of a lake created by a dam. The waters of the lake covered the old village of Delta in the early 1900's. The park has a boat ramp, beach, some easy hiking, and recently added electricity to all the sites.  Very popular area.

Great

Great place to camp. The beach was nice and clean. The showers were nice and the bathrooms were clean. The playgrounds were nice for the kids.

No camping available

Beautiful little park, with an awesome waterfall, but there is no camping available. About 2010, they halted camping there. Maybe you could hike or bike in and snag a quiet spot overnight, but nothing official.

Beautiful area

The campground is on a beautiful spot - I could stare at the views all day. We didn’t get to check out the entire property, but was happy with what we saw.
My only concerns were the cleanliness of the bathrooms and clear communication regarding the pool closure.

Large open sites; creekside beach; great staff; special activities for kids

Small, family owned campground w/173 sites. Very quiet, rural area. Sites are very large and well maintained. Sites along the creek and lagoon have shade trees; tent sites to FHU’s; creekside beach; swings, patio agility course, many planned activities for kids: hayrides, sandcastle contests, Santa visit in July. Live bands or DJ’s on holiday weekends. Many fishing areas and several boat launch places with water access to large Oneida Lake. Bathrooms and showers are immaculate and well stocked. Staff members and owners are very pleasant and friendly.

Nice place

Nice place to camp all electric no water hook ups bath house clean but could use more

Cute little campground

Jeff and Jackie run a nice little campground. There is a pool and playground. Clean shower and toilet bath house recently renovated. A lot of pull thru sites. Close to a small farm stand that Jeff tows a hay wagon down to for pumpkin picking in the fall. Great overall campground!

Great place to campout or as a day trip

My family has stayed here twice. Excellent experience both times. The park is clean and well maintained. The bathroom/showers are busy but always clean. The beach area is one of the nicest I’ve been to and the water is amazing. There’s walking paths around the lakes that are even handicap accessible. This state park is very busy because it’s just that nice. A must do if you’re in the area.

Great location on the lake

Nice enough place, nothing great besides the location and an amazing restaurant down the street.

Quiet, Relaxing, on the lake

I Could go on an on about this campground. go check it out!

Beautiful

Very nice rustic camping, amazing location, rocky beach. Love it there

Time to go camping

Clean friendly just a great place to camp

Redfield-Hall Island State Forest

This site is one of a handful of primitive sites abutting the Salmon River Reservoir in the Hall Island State Forest in Redfield, NY. All sites are first come, first serve, and free of charge. We were able to have a fire.

There’s not much to them, no facilities or running water, and certainly not as scenic as going up to the Adirondacks; but seemed a decent option for a quick weekend trip. The draw for my friends and I at the time was a jump off the nearby Redfield bridge and swim in the Salmon River. Was also popular for fishing enthusiasts. 

It’s a short drive into town and to the local convenience store, which “conveniently” enough, offers shower facilities and bathrooms for a fee. However, I don’t recall being terribly impressed. I’m not likely to return, but it’s an option if you want a simple camp night with friends.
