This was a one night stay on our way home. There was no one at the gate, no instructions to leave your payment if leaving early in the morning. The 50 amp sites are just long enough for a big rig, but very narrow. The gravel could be replenished, and it appears not too much attention is given to RV sites. The view of the lake is beautiful, but being on a bluff, wisely protected by a metal fence. You have to pay a $2.75 surcharge for not making a reservation!. Living in New York State, we were disappointed that a beautiful area such as this is not given a priority by the State to better maintain the grounds. The sign coming in could use some paint. Gravel is inexpensive, and the sites could certainly use it. The sites are quite narrow and could easily be made wider since they are nicely spaced from one another. The picnic tables are very old and need replacement...not a big cost there. We would stay for an overnight, but would have to consider moving on if wanting to stay longer. Other states have much nicer campgrounds. Well worth a try if you're passing through. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

$28 included our $5 non-resident charge and $2.75 non-reservation charge. We camped in MH in 30amp area on outer ring overlooking awesome Lake Erie. Aside from the filthy, unkempt, bug infested, trashy bathrooms and showers, this is a wonderful location and recreation area. My wife showered early, and I about 8:30 on a Friday morning. There were NO cleaning or maintain persons to be seen. Shower curtains torn, window screens falling off and broken, shower heads non working properly: a mess. Crushed rock site base with grass/dirt patio. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Living in the Western New York area, my wife and I decided to try a "Lo-Cation", camping in our own neck of the woods. Evangola State Park has been around for some time. We have camped here before for weekends so we decided to spend a week (7 nights) and commute to our daily jobs etc. This park has a very friendly and courteous staff (as do most or all NYS parks). The outer perimeter sites in the two RV loops are for the most part shaded and level, with gravel pads for your rig. Again, like most state parks the sites are large and very spacious with each site having a post type grill and fire pit ring with grill grate atop it, great to do corn or potatoes in foil. A short walk along a waterfront trail brings you down to the sandy and well groomed beach area, though it appears most campers choose to drive the mile around from the campground which is off to one side of the overall park setting. Weekends can be somewhat crowded with large family groups covering two or three sites in a row with multiple tents set up on each site along with a RV of some type, though it gets pretty quiet by 10 PM. Bathhouses are clean, with cleaning staff getting in them by 7 AM some mornings to spray for bugs, power wash and re-supply before the morning shower etc. rush. Only complaint here is there could be another bathhouse because the aforementioned weekend crowds can tax their toilet tissue supply or available shower stalls (3 showers and 3 toilets for the men for whole campground) though there are additional facilities at the beach area. This park is near several beach bars well known in the Buffalo, NY area where you can get the feeling of being more in Florida than WNY. Overall my wife and I really enjoyed our week stay at Evangola and would highly recommend it to both locals and folks traveling through the area. We will return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
