On the positive notes. The camp ground was very clean. The campground store was well stocked. Both with food and RV supplies. The owners of the campground were polite and knowledgeable of the area. The swimming pool was nice. The campground had access to Conesus Lake. The Campground is located across the street from Conesus Lake. Negative Notes. This is the steepest campground I have ever been in, seen or heard of. The entrance road to the campground has a slope that must be close to a 25 degree grade. I used 4WD to get up. Once up this grade and in front of the office to check in you are still on a steep hill. There are very few transient sites. 90% of the sites are seasonal rigs. The remaining sites are small. All the sites are basically ledges terraced into a the steep hillside. My 27 foot TT took up my entire site. My slide out hung over my neighbors site. the end of my slide was close to six feet in the air. The site on one side of me was 3 feet higher and the other side 3 feet lower. 2/3 of the way up the hill is the pool. It is located in a large steel building. There is limited parking in the pool area. Further up the hill (where the road gets steeper!) are located the tent and travel trailer sites. I saw water and electric hookups there. Leaving this area (the road loops and is one way) the slope was approximately 30 degrees. This road was marked with numerous skid marks. Leaving the campground was no easy matter. At the base of the driveway where it levels off is marked by gouges from RVs scraping bottom. As I stated before the campground is directly across the entrance from Conesus Lake. If one's brakes were to fail or if someone was to slip coming down that entrance it is a 20 foot drop to the Lake and there is nothing to stop you. The electric power was unsteady. I attributed this to the extreme heat and number of RVs running electricity. However volt droppage was sufficient to interfere with the operation of the refrigerator. Conesus Lake itself has only one public beach located about 5 miles away. The lake was full of algae and stank. Swimming/diving from the Campground's docks is prohibited. If I had a tent or tent trailer, a stout vehicle with a strong transmission I imagine staying at the top of the hill would be quite pleasant. The seasonal people loved this campground. However, I spoke with people from 5 other rigs who, like us were there for the weekend and none of us will be returning to Conesus Lake Campground.

The Campground was immaculately clean. Services, Staff, Facilities, all were outstanding. The adjacent restaurant was excellent. The price for dinner for two entrees came to less than thirty dollars. The food and service were excellent. The Owners of the campground made themselves known to us, checked on our needs and site, and really made us feel welcome. We only stayed one night as we were just passing through the area but we are definitely returning for a longer stay.
