Pros: good swimming, clean bathrooms, easy access off 90 (convenient) Cons: little to no separation between sites, easy access off 90 (busy)
This is a huge park on Lake Erie about an hour from Niagara Falls. Th day-use picnic area and beach are quite nice, clean, and well cared for.
The campground is another story. The tenting are is basically a field with no privacy. Yo can see the lake on the other side of a chainlink fence. In wet or rainy weather the whole thing becomes a swamp.
The RV sites are also close together, although a few of them seemed private. There are also 5 yurts that w really nice. Restrooms were filthy, with hair, empty shampoo bottles, and razors on the floor. Dumpsters were all really full and we didn’t see any staff people at all.
If you do visit, I suggest going for the day to picnic and swim, and skipping the campground.
Thus campground is on Lake Erie in Evans, NY. The tentsites offer access to the beach where there is plenty of drift wood for your campfire. There is a lodge with games, arts and craftes educational activities for all ages. Also there is a fishing pond.
State campground on Lake Erie. Has all the amenities for tent/RV camping. Beautiful beach area. New showers. Easy access to wine country. Gorgeous sunsets.
Unfortunately, my site did not.
However, my site wasn't crowded and the electricity was reliable. This campground has three loops. One has 30 amp power, one has 50 amp power (with a 30 amp outlet on the same pedestal) and the third loop is for tent camping. There are several places to get water in the camp, so be sure to fill up your tanks before you park. There is a dump station. None of the sites are full hook up.
Each site has a picnic table and a grill.
There are two bath houses. The newer one - between loops one and three - also has laundry facilities.
Your payment for your campsite entitles you to admission to the beach, which is a hike or a drive away.
This park has beautiful views of the lake and sitting areas to sit on the lake or pathways to stroll along the lake. There is nice trails through the woods and nice camping spots with nice views of sunsets and the water. The facilities are nice and some are new. overall a great place to camp.
clean and updated shower house not too much to do, short hike or drive to beach. beach could use some cleaning and grooming but a fair park for the price
Friendly staff, clean grounds, clean hot showers, security drives around, a great place to stay !
Our site was large enough, but there was no privacy. Every site is just open to all the rest. Our neighbors on one side were very nice, but in front of us had 3 large, loud dogs that scared my children the entire time. The lake was nice, but wear water shoes, as the rocks stick up and are sharp in spots.
The time we spent at Evangola must have been a prime camping time because the campground was quiet busy! Our siites was not very secluded but was spacious. The facilities were quite clean but a bit of a walk from our site. It was very cool that you could hear the waves at night.
