A new favorite!

We loved our stay at Sned-Acres! We spent 4 nights there in June 2019 at site #17. It was easy to find, relatively easy to pull in (would’ve been easier if someone hadn’t parked their car in the grass directly across from our campsite), and the staff we dealt with (Wendy and Reid) were just wonderful. Our two-year-old adored playing on the playground just 15’ or so from our campsite and we particularly loved checking out our beautiful lake view while we sat around the campfire. There were tons of wineries nearby, as well as some breweries and a beer garden, hiking, and waterfalls so we weren’t hurting for outside things to do either.

We didn’t use the pool nor the bathhouse.

This isn’t a campground with a lot of frills, but it certainly met all of our needs and then some. The friendship bread given to us at check-in was so touching and sweet (as well as delicious). Our only disappointment was that they have a LONG wait for seasonal sites with almost no turnover year to year. Great for them, but bad for us!

Great Overnight Spot!

We stopped here for the night and it was very pretty, quiet, and clean. The roads are narrow and hilly, but we pull a 36’ 5th wheel (mid-profile) and we had. I issues with branches. They had a oversized, long pull through available (site 88) that made entering and exiting the site nice and easy. 50amp and water was used, didn’t dump. The office staff was polite and kind, chatted with a couple campers that were also very pleasant. A little highway noise, but would still recommend staying here. My teenagers even enjoyed the playground! Very nice yard games area with many options, grounds well maintained, we didn’t use the bathrooms.

Peaceful getaway, family and pet friendly

This is a private campground located in Bloomfield, NY right on the Mud Creek. Located close to shopping, wineries, hiking, and concert events. Call for reservation, then they use text to send reservation form, confirmation form and site map. $20 gets you a bucket full of campfire wood delivered directly to your campsite! A pavilion on site offers a sink and refrigerator to use ( must label with name) , FREE games ( pool table, foosball, cards, Cornhole, etc). Don't feel like bringing/ setting up the grill? They have you covered…. Use their full size grills on site! While they have several showers to use, I only found one flush toilet for the ladies to use ( large area but no door or curtain) however, there are Port a pottys to use as well. Sites have picnic table, fire ring, Adirondack chairs, water and electric hookup, and a dump station to use on your way out. If you stay for an extended period, they offer free emptying at your site. Turtle visits are complimentary as well.

Letchworth Campground

Stayed here 1 night in June. They have a peculiar rule at the gate that says to not enter CG if not checked in with the office and to set up in the parking lot; so make sure you get there before the office closes at night. The sites are very close to one another and pretty small. We barely had room for 2 tents. Plenty of tree cover right on the rim of the gorge though. Fire rings and a table are provided at each site.

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 views— hold onto your hat

My camping partner lost 3 hats here, the wild’ll blow ‘em right over the edge. Worth it. Went in mid-June and the weather was delightful. FRIENDLY and active wildlife near camp sites, store food properly. Went rafting, great scenery at lower part of canyon.

Spacious camp sites, clean facilities, unique hiking experience

Campground has spacious sites with alot of privacy.  The Gorge Trail is a must do, dont get discourage by the # of stairs, its not that bad.

Lot of geese poop

Good for the purpose it serves as the campground to an amisement park but not good as a stand alone campground.

Nice scenery

Great place to go for the day. enjoy a nature hike and have a relaxing day

One of my favorite NYS Parks

This park has three great hikes one along creek. Most people walk in creek some even swim but technically against the rules. Starting June 15th the park has a swimming area with life guards although the water is creek water and is normally cold. The campground is about a mile hike from the swimming area a a short drive. Typical state campsites some that can fit big rigs but no hook ups. During the week this campground is almost a ghost town and crazy busy during the weekends.

Great

One of my favorite places to camp. Very quiet. Owners are super nice. Everything is extremely clean. Cabins are amazing.

Private and quit

A must do. Nice place to relax by the stream.

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!

Wide open camp sites, very few with electric. Awesome hiking trails!

The campsites are wide open sites great for campers or tents.  Very few sites have electric so if you want it- book early.  The gorge hike is beautiful.  It is a moderate hike but even if you are not a hiker the views are totally worth it.  It is located in close proximity to many wineries and the finger lakes so not only is there a lot to do at the campground there is also a lot to do close by.

Convenient

This is nice place to stay if you’re just looking for a site in a field. It’s loud and you’re on top of your neighbor but it is literally right next to the park. Good for late night concerts.

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

Easy to get in and out

This campground is great if youre into the theme park. I used to go to kingdom bound and we always stayed at this campground. The bathrooms were always easy to find and clean. The staff is always very nice and helpful. It was such a fun campground.

Cute with critters

The park itself is beautiful but the campground gets so many visitors of all different experience levels that certain animals such as raccoons and skunks are all too comfortable scavenging the sites. When camping be sure to put all food items in a place such as your car so it does not attract these animals. Definitely DO NOT feed the raccoons like some nearby campers did unless you are willing to share your site.

Amazing!!

This park is massive and beautiful! Great for fall hikes as well as camping

Beautiful but busy park

Watkins glen is a beautiful area in the NY Finger Lakes. The park itself is well maintained and the hike through the gorge is stunning. It is however, very busy. We camped there in Mid-July and tourists were being dropped off by the bus load to walk through the gorge. The campsites were well shaded and fairly spacious, but you definitely knew what your neighbors were doing. Bathrooms were clean, firewood was available for purchase, there is a small convenience store & a large swimming pool open to the public. It is fairly close to a race track, so I imagine it could be noisy at times. The walk through the gorge is stunning enough to make this a worthwhile camping experience.

Family friendly, great hosts!

Family friendly park, lots of activities, park hosts/owners are hands on and awesome.

kids paradise

kids and parents will love this place as has lots of entertainment for all ages

amazing place

this place is one of the top in ny state as its a wooden wonderland for all to see

awesome views

this place is beautiful as i live close by and go there several times a year and never get tired of it

Nice Hiking

This park offers over 300 campsites with restrooms, hot showers, dumping stations and firewood for sale. The park is open all year round. Check for dates on openings for pool, campgrounds, and trails. Pets are allowed on the grounds but not on the trails

The trails follow a gorge with multiple waterfalls that weave in and out of small caves and falls. For all you wondering, swimming is not allowed in the gorge. Overall nice hiking. My only drawback is the dog rule and the campsites being so close to one another.

DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME!!!

We booked a trip in January and made a $200 deposit for a trip in July 2019. We've been staying at many different campgrounds in their rental cabins or trailers for the past 20 years. This campground waited two months and then canceled our reservation stating that they decided to upgrade our cabin and will no longer be honoring the terms of our reservation. We have always taken our dog camping with us and even though this cabin was pet friendly when we booked, they decided to change it. They still allow dogs in some of their other cabins. I offered to give them phone numbers of 7 different campgrounds that we have taken our dog to their rentals. I practically begged them to allow us to keep our reservation as planned since I am short on cash due to the fact that I am undergoing treatment for colon cancer. They were very rude and simply responded by saying "sorry, no exceptions". It was very obvious that they wanted us out of that cabin so that they could re-book and hike the rate, which they did. This short 3-day weekend was the only vacation I was going to be able to give my family in 2019. Since they waited so long to cancel us, all the other places we've checked are full.

Complete serenity

This will always be my favorite place to camp. Sites were a bit close together but the campers were so nice. The scenery was stunning and staff helpful.

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.

Great place.

I've been going there for the last at least 10 plus years & I have no plans to stop my annual trek to this little peaceful, hidden little gem!

The hiking!

The Gorge Trail was amazing! So beautiful! Nice big sites, shaded. Clean bathrooms.
