I stayed in site 743, the pet loop. There are other loops and each was slightly different in terms of site selections. All sites seemed to be quite large, good spacing between sites. Site 743 was great as it was a corner lot affording really nice sunset views. The downside was there is a street lamp (low intensity) right at the corner but pretty well hidden by trees. It does light up the picnic table area and all which may be a plus or minus, depending on your preferences. The park is huge overall. Good hiking and bicycling. The waterfalls are 11+ miles away from the camping area so plan for that in visiting the falls. I really enjoyed my stay here (3 days). I plan on returning as 2 days wasn't enough time to really enjoy what the park offers. We camped here in a Motorhome.

We stayed in the 700 loop (site 721) which was a very nice site with a lot of shade, a fairly level gravel area for the RV and some grassy area for the dogs. The 700 and 800 loops are the only ones that allow pets, and it seems that not everyone is careful to clean up after their dogs, so watch your step in those loops! An informal walking trail started right at our campsite. The electric service box had 50, 30 and 20 amp receptacles and was wired correctly. (The 50 amp plug was anyway, I did not check the others.) I would definitely choose this site again, but there were several nice sites in this loop, some were very shaded and others were more open. The biggest detractor for this park, like most NY state parks it seems, is the lack of water and sewer hookups. I stopped at the spigot at the entrance to the loop to fill my fresh water tank, but that blocks the road for everyone else due to the faucet having to be held open. However, what wasn't mentioned in other reviews is there are actually similar spigots spread throughout the entire loop, and some are definitely close enough to sites to be able to fill your tank if you have a long enough hose. I suspect that if you feel like carrying 100-200' of hose, you could refill from just about any site in the loop. Also, it appears that only the spigot at the entrance to the loop as a "hold open" type, the rest are standard spigots. Because we ran out of water, we had to use the bathrooms and shower on the last night we were there. The bathroom cleanliness was about average for a facility of this type but, the showers were a bit dirty and gross. The water temperature cannot be controlled, but at least it was warm. There are 3 dump stations upon exiting the park which is nice, but unfortunately there is no garbage can there to dispose of gloves, etc. and the rinse water hose does not have a garden hose connector on the end so it is impossible to use a built-in tank flush system. Also, it uses a sort of lever valve that makes it difficult to control the water pressure, and the water pressure is very high! It would be very easy to get that water splashing everywhere while you hose off your sewer hose and connectors. The staff was friendly, the campground was nice, and the park itself is very pretty. I would stay here again, but next time I'm bringing more water hose! Because of the lack of water/sewer hookups, this campground is best for short stays. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

No water or sewer hook ups at any site. You must fill your fresh water tank before setting up. Faucet handle must be held open to operate it. Makes filling a tank a pain. Bathroom are very old and in need of repair. Men's room had only one shower operating, and water temperature can not be controlled.(one handle -lukewarm). No towel dispensers. Staff rude and unwilling to be of much help. Must reserve through Reserve America who knows nothing about the campgrounds or sites. $9.00 service charge. Won't ever stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
