I was really looking forward to staying in this new park because of the great location and good reviews. There are some very nice things about it, but it didn't live up to all my expectations as a traveler. This could be a better place for seasonals than those traveling through. The good: Beautiful land on a ridge above the Erie Canal. Most spaces are open, but there are two shaded roads. One road overlooks the canal. We were fortunate to get a shaded site even though we stayed just four days. Most of the sites with big trees are for seasonals. The staff is very friendly, but a little hard to find. Follow the directions on the office doors if no one's there. We did not use the bathrooms, but we did use the laundry which was quite nice. I got some help from a busy worker in the laundry. She took the time to drive me to the office to get change for the machines. The bad: I think the owners took on a little too much with this project. They cleared and graded many acres of land, but have not been able to finish it all. Some roads were unfinished and piles of building materials were lying around. Not too safe for kids. The campsites were not well tended. Our grass was very long and the campfire had bottles and trash in it. In our four days of hot weather, the grass was not mowed in our campsite. People were working hard at getting the pool house painted, but nobody seemed willing to do a little housecleaning on our street or cleaning out the campsites after renters leave. Placed here and there around the welcome area were lots of oddball salvaged items in various states of disrepair. Some things from the pool were just piled up and stored on the office porch. The owner must like salvage, but to others it's junk. The trains didn't bother us, but they were loud. I will stay at Twilight again because it's beautiful, close to our family, and the people are friendly. I just hope they can clean it up a little.

We made a reservation and stayed one night. The reservation cost $5 (in addition to the $20 camping fee), but we were happy to have a spot on a crowded August weekend. We were surprised to have full hookups and Wi-Fi as well. Spaces are oddly arranged, trailers seemed to be every which-way. The park was attractive, but crowded with weekenders. One group got rowdy late at night. It would help to have more policing. Nonetheless, it was a nice park and we would stay again.

This is one of those little gems you find in small midwestern towns that speaks of hometown hospitality...and free, too. I had to put a price down, and they ask for donations, but it costs nothing to camp there. We gave $10 just because we appreciated the place. Don't expect much in the way of amenities, but if you are self-contained, you have access to water and electric and a nice place to spend the night. The park is surrounded by trees, but the railyard is behind them. It caused some noise during the day, but hardly any at night. We didn't use the facilities, but they seemed adequate and clean. There is a dump station, but it is not pull-through. I would stay here again.

This is a quiet, clean, friendly campground with some sites with larger trees for shade. The owner is very nice. Videos are loaned for free and the laundry is free, also. We only stayed one night, but we would come back if we were in the area.
