This campground is located in a beautiful and peaceful setting. The owners are wonderful people. I give this park an excellent rating on them alone. The park has several level pull through sites on gravel. The electric and water utilities are in excellent working condition and properly located. They don't have sewer at site. Owner will pump out full tanks. Each site has grass lawn with fire ring and picnic table. The are several back in sites available also. There are two large ponds with free peddle boats for campers use. The park also has free WiFi that works quite well. The owners are constantly working on improvements and maintenance. They have installed a dump station which was usable on our visit but is still under construction. The campground is located near several New York State wineries, beautiful Keuka Lake and the picturesque village of Hammondsport. We will go back next summer.

This is a truck stop campground. It gets noisy when the truck lot fills. The interstate is right next to it so that's noisy too. We were on a pull through site (14) with full hookups. The site was narrow and not level. Exiting the park was a puzzle. We drove around looking for the way out. This place is a last resort stop when nothing else is available. We would not stay there again. Over priced poor value.

We stopped here without a reservation. It happened to be a weekend when they were having a Bluegrass festival. This campground has a loop for those traveling with pets. We were fortunate to get the last site available. It wasn't the best site. It was not level. It was grass and only had electric. This state park is the most dog friendly park we have been in. You could walk your dog on many acres of park land and even down to the water in some areas. The pet loop has a very large area in the center to walk you dog also. They have two dump stations and drinking water available at that location. The park appeared to be very well maintained. The park is family oriented with a playground, beach, volleyball, kayak rentals, fishing picnic areas and more. The day we were to leave it was raining. I was unable to pull our trailer off the site as the wheels spun on the wet grass. Park rangers came and hooked onto my truck and assisted me in pulling out. Great service.

This is one of the nicest campgrounds we have visited. This park is very well maintained. It offers a pool, putt putt golf, special weekend events throughout the summer, fishing, tubing, playground and pet area where pets run free. They have camping cabins and campsites along the Allegheny River which flows through the property. They are restoring vintage campers to place in an area for rental also. This place is a great weekend getaway for the family. It is also a nice overnight stop. Some sites are gravel. Most are grass. Each has a picnic table and fire ring. They have full hookup, electric and water sites and tent sites. Price varies with services and location. We were right on the river. It was very pleasant and relaxing after driving all day. They have two dump stations for those not on full hookups. The owners are very friendly and experienced campground owners. We would stay here again. The only negative I heard from anyone was the highway traffic noise. I thought it was very minimal as the highway is lightly traveled. Other than a passing truck occasionally, I didn't notice it at all. Very quiet at night.

This park is part of a huge complex with a golf course, marina, restaurants and more. Some I spoke to, said this park was their summer vacation destination. Many of the campsites have excellent views of the lake. Many were on the lake kayaking and fishing. It is a very friendly park from staff to campers. We were on site 39. It was the last available site. We drove in without a reservation and got lucky. Our site was large enough that I didn't have to unhook the tow vehicle for an over night stay. We liked the fact that each campsite had its own trash receptacle. The site was paved with a gravel area with picnic table and fire ring. The site was very spacious with grass surrounding it. Utilities were excellent and well located.

Campground is located in a narrow valley with a small stream passing through it. There are signs warning of the possibility of flash floods. We chose a site away from the creek because of that. All sites are fairly level gravel surfaced. The center of the campground has pull through sites but they aren't real large. Our truck and trailer combination would be sticking out both ends if I didn't unhook. We chose a backin site that was very spacious. We had a large grass lawn with picnic table. utility posts were located on a site next to us. I used 35 feet of hose to reach the water. My electric cord was fully extended also. Any longer and I would have needed my extension. The park is very neat and clean. The attendant was very helpful.

This park is good for an over night stop along the Interstate. There are 5 pull through sites up near the office that are level with crushed stone. Utilities were adequate with 20, 30 and 50 amp service. These are full hookup sites. Ours, however, had a sewer problem so it couldn't be used. The manager said they will be making repairs. I was on site 5 so if that's a problem you might want to avoid it. I was informed when I called them about the situation. It was the only vacancy they had at the time. The price was right so I took it. There are camper sites on a lower level. These look like extended stay sites. I am not certain how many sites are available on a daily basis so call ahead. We used the laundry. The machines were clean and in good operating condition. The premises were clean. A wash or a dry was $1.25. The park has new owners. It is apparent they are making improvements. They seem to be very competent and attentive to your needs. I would stay again.

This park is heavily shaded in most areas. Nice in hot weather but there is little grass as a consequence. Most sites are on the small side. There are a few that will take a 35 to 40 foot unit. Water and electric hook ups were in good working order. Many sites have paved pads. Sites have large concrete picnic tables on concrete pads. There is a playground for the kids. There is an extensive hiking trail system from the campground. Negatives: no near by dumpster and dump station is down the road not within the campground itself. This campground is called the "west" campground. The "east" campground is located near the marina and dam. It is more open and grasses. The sites look quite narrow but will accommodate large RVs. The road going into that campground is very narrow. Caution must be used not to run off pavement. The road into the west campground is very good however there are a couple of switchbacks that are manageable.

This park is 7 miles off I 75. It is clean with paved and large grassy areas. We had a full hook up pull thru site It was level grass and gravel. Attendant is super sweet and helpful. Office is a bit odd location. She met us pulling in though. Many staying here are extended stay burn not trailer trash. Things are kept nice. The park is quiet. I would stay here again.

This campground has many wooded and shaded sites. There is a river walk that is worth a stoll. Our site was full hook up 30 amp service. There was no cover on the electrical box. It had rained, so our site was wet. We tracked lots of dirt in. My wife went to walk our dog. Two large unleashed dogs dashed out at her. When she complained to the owners of the dogs they were very rude. She made a complaint to the campground owner who addressed the situation immediately. It is not their policy to have dogs running loose. The owner also made up sheets with suggested drives you could take through the area to see all the sights. They were very useful.

The view is wonderful. Beautiful grounds, very well maintained. Sites are very narrow. I couldn't put out my awning without it touching the coach next to me. We were socked in with fog and rain while there. We still enjoyed all the lighthouses and gift shops nearby. We had 30 amp service and water. There are no full hook ups. A man will come by with a tote and dump your tanks for $10.00. Overall it is a nice place with nice people attending it.

Very helpful staff. Nice campground with open areas and trees. Sites are a bit close but this area is a high traffic area. When you need a place to stay here that is not an issue. Very well maintained grounds.

Date of Stay:

Neat clean park with a water view. Most sites are in the open. There are several more shaded sites along a tree line. Navigating around the park is easy on well maintained dirt roads. The road from US 1 to the park has a narrow bridge. Two cars can pass easily but with an RV you might want to wait for a vehicle crossing. The bridge clearance is 13'6".

Date of Stay:

This park covers 200 acres with a lake, river walk, free use of canoes, wooded campsites as well as pull throws in the open. The park is very well managed. Utilities hook ups are excellent. Very quiet park out in nature. Close to historical Bennigton, VT.

The campground has a nice location on the river. The sites themselves are not that great but mine was level and I had a view of the river. I was only traveling though and only was looking for a place to spend the night. The fee was high for just a quick overnight stop. I think this might be nice if you wanted to spend a few days. I still think it is pricey. I have camped all over out west and never paid anywhere near this much. The east coast is high priced for what you get.
