Date of Stay: August, 2008
Pool is old and in need of cleaning/resurfacing and is not lifeguarded. Playgrounds are dated and in need of repair/cleaning as they have recycled tire mulch that is very moldy. Sites are very-very wet when it rains (we had 2" + of standing water) after a t-storm. Wi-Fi is $2 per 10 minutes and connection is very slow and available only in ranger station. Prices at camp store exorbitant. Many areas in need of painting/general maintenance. Many campers also had issues with critters (namely skunks) that park staff didn't feel it necessary to address. Organized activities were scheduled but not well planned out and not suitable for small children. River is nice, but shoreline is not cleaned/maintained by the park (there was some "inappropriate" trash on the shoreline on a Saturday morning). We probably wouldn't camp there again. Park has a 2 adult-2 child-1 dog policy, be aware of that when booking and be prepared to pay beyond that as it's not flexible.

Very nice family oriented park. Rec staff were great (thanks Penny!) well organized, family friendly and facilities adequate for rainy days and sunshine alike. Beach is nice but bring water shoes as it's a bit rocky in the deeper areas. Sites are adequate but can accumulate standing water in a storm. Park staff is very nice, good patrols. Nice paved access for bike riding and excellent trails. No critter problems, fire pits are nice size as well. We really enjoyed it there and will definitely be back!

Mostly seasonal camps but adequate for the basics if you're passing through. Not a lot of sites available for short stays but they are very lenient with pets, children, etc. No organized rec, but the beach is nice (rocky on the shores of Lake Ontario). Prices moderate. If you want to camp and just be left "alone" this is a great place to visit. Unlike state parks you can get water and electric hookups here and septic service is available as well. Very nice small marina with excellent fishing. Camp store has only the basics, but the campground is only minutes from the grocery store. Sandy access roads but they are stable for RV driving and relatively easy to navigate. The oldest family owned campground in Oswego County.
