Huge sites, great facilities!

Very friendly and clean. Campsites were enormous. I will be back.


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!

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.


large tent and rv sites most with electric. Potable water fill station and dump tanks at entrance/exit. Bathrooms were very clean and had dish washing stations in them. Loop 5 has beautiful views of the lake. Great little beach and swimming area; water was very clean. Small camp store and concession stand with fish fries, breakfast foods and ice cream. I saw someone mention issues with park police, we didn’t even see one!

Lakeside camping

The campground is right along the lake with great access to the water and close to the many wineries of the finger lakes. There is a store with lots of food and supplies. The sites are not private as most are in a field. Cute cabins available as well.

Beautiful setting, clean campground, lots of fun!

The campground is beautiful and if you reserve early enough you can reserve a site overlooking Seneca lake. Clean area to swim and close to several wineries. Fun for the whole family!

Beautiful and great access to a beach

This campground is close to 40+ wineries and Watkins glen. It has a pretty beach and clean large sites.
