Electric 50 & 30amp, water & sewer at all sites. Two loops have some vegetation between sites for some privacy but the loop near the office was primarily grass. Roads are paved and in excellent condition. The sites are level gravel with fire rings on ground and separate grills on pedestal and include a clothes line at back of each site. The pool was empty and in need of repair when we were there in May, but the big attraction is the Rainbow river with a canoe/kayak /tube launch area and a separate swim area. The river is crystal clear and emanates from the headspring which is approx. one mile from the campground. Large numbers of tubers ride the 4 mph river downstream to Dunnellon on weekends during the season. Campers have free access to the headsprings area which includes picnicking, swimming, canoe/kayak rentals and a tour of the extensive gardens.

Campground is poorly designed if there was any design when it was built. It is essentially a swampy patch on the south shore of Oneida Lake in a county park. The camp roads are potholed gravel with gravel parking spots for RVs and are the only parts of the campground that aren't underwater during heavy rainstorms. The showers for campers only are located several hundred yards away at the public beach changing rooms. The beach itself was closed most of our two week stay because of blue/green algae and later due to E coli. The only redeeming features are the large boat launch area which draws a lot of fishermen, nearness to I-81 for overnighters and it's proximity to Syracuse. We would not stay here if it wasn't to visit friends and relatives in the Syracuse area.

Date of Stay:

Paved interior roads with open grass campsites. Limited shade and sites are mostly in an open field. Geese have taken over the lake front making walking hazardous if you don't watch your step. Lake is shallow and heavily silted, but OK for kayaking. Park gets regular local use for picnics etc. Close to I-86/ Rt.17 for an overnight stop. Lack of water at sites and poor area roads means we probably won't be back.

Rate is for U.S. Senior Pass. Paved roads and each site has paved parking with a graveled area for picnic tables, tents and fire rings. Quiet area on COE lake. Lots of fishing and kayaking. Swimming beach is shallow with sand beach good for kids. Rest rooms and showers were well built but not too well maintained recently. Men's shower had no curtains so everything in vicinity got wet. Local roads poor for cycling with no shoulders, broken pavement and 55 MPH speed limit.

Campground is located in a town park that has a lot of local use i.e. picnickers, school outings, dog walkers, joggers, soccer & baseball games, summer concerts, car shows etc. Paved roads with lots of lawn and some shaded sites. Great location on the Susquehanna river near the touristy village of Owego. We were here for the annual Strawberry Festival the third weekend in June which draws upwards of 30,000 people to this small village for lots of live music, strawberry shortcake, wine tasting,fireworks, many food vendors and a general good time. A note of caution to people considering a long term stay is a monthly rate is for 28 days. We would definitely stay here again.

Roads are paved but sites are gravel at best. Some sites are short. The park is very unique with its two small lakes and many hiking/mountain biking trails. The park has a sandy swimming beach with crystal clear water. Close to Syracuse and gets a lot of day visitors to the beach and trails.

We were here for The Escapees rally and found the facilities very good for us. The sites vary and some were a bit soggy during wet weather. Would stop here again as it is close to town and many RV suppliers.

This is a wonderful campground in a great county park on a group of connected islands at the mouth of Tampa Bay. It is difficult to get reservations but a percentage of sites are kept available for walkups. On a Tuesday morning we were third in line 2 hours before the office opened and had our pick of a couple of "pet" sites. There is seven miles of paved recreational trail suitable for rollerblading, casual cycling, or walking. There is also a great dog park with an adjacent stretch of white sand beach for the canines.

Date of Stay:

Shady campground except for the transient pull-thru sites which are level and sunny. Pool was closed when we visited in mid-Oct. Roads are mostly paved and the transient sites are grassy with gravel parking area. Campground has mostly long term residents and is open all year. Good spot to stop over night as it is near the Interstate.

We had a large, level, grassy site. The showers were clean with lots of hot water. Would definitely stay here again.

Nice campground in a great location across the street from Lake Ontario and adjacent to Oswego College.

Campground website lists a rate of $40/night for 2 adults & 2 children. After a long day we arrived at Fantasy Island Campground and were charged $80/night for 4 adults. To add insult to this overcharge we discovered the showers were 50 cents for 8 minutes. Two of the 3 showers were operable, one didn't work at all. Of the two that worked the one nearest the water heater got all the hot water while the other was ice cold until the first shower user was done and shut off his hot water. The sinks weren't even plumbed for hot water, only cold. I would never recommend any this park to anyone who was traveling through the area.

Friendly park in a quiet area conveniently close to town. Lake is not swim-able but has excellent fishing and boating. Entrance road is paved and campground roads are gravel. Grassy, treed, large, easy access sites with smaller sites on the waterfront. Several docks for fishing and boating with a large concrete boat ramp next to a large parking lot with plenty of room for boat trailers. Has a wooded path leading to State Route 3 for walking/biking access to a mini-golf course, the YMCA and several restaurants.
