Will never stay there again. Dusty and rough roads. Bare ground from digging sewer lines. Noisy. No quiet times. Reserved for a week but left after one night. Asked for refund and denied. This is more of a seasonal campground and not a RV Park. I do not have a good thing to say about Bedford Creek. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very tight for large rigs. Site was in rear of CG and fairly new with gravel dumped on soft ground so getting level was difficult. Many seasonal campers with permanent sited rigs - some not in very good shape. CG was crowded with many large groups, but got quiet after 9PM. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I gave this a 3 because I talked with 3 employees which were all very friendly and that is the only good thing I can say about this park. The majority of the park is occupied by full time residents that have made a mess of the area. To say it's rustic is too kind, it's just plan trashy. The price we paid included two days at full price and one day at PA rate. We will not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good power, water and sewer. We were given a pull through site which was OK even if on the main inbound road. Staff was fine. Road requires very slow going. Lots of pot holes. Mostly seasonal and permanents, but at P/A price it was fine. Very quiet. We would return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were booked for 2 nights and stayed only 1. The park electric service exceeded the upper limit for our Power Line Monitor so we were without electric service. The park has lots of permanent units in place so the mobile RVs are the exception not the rule. The pull-through site we parked in was just adequate to get our wheels on the pad. We found the roads were rough. Management was friendly and helpful, however the electric problem was never solved which is why we did not stay for our second night. Management was not willing to award us a partial refund of the site fee. The park size was small and not what we expected to serve 204 spaces. We will not return to this park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped here for a week long vacation. We camped with two other couples. What appealed to us about picking this campground was the fact the website stated it was directly on Lake Ontario and had a nice waterfront beach. The campgrounds roads throughout were bumpy and uneven when traveling on them. In addition the campground had no real waterfront. Their idea of a beach was a pad of sand with one bench. They couldn't develop the beachfront due to the department of conservation or something to that effect. As it is there was no pool so a developed waterfront would have been ideal. You also could not fish on the docks due to the rules and boats. If you wanted to fish you had to go to the water with the pad of sand and wade all the way around. The showers were really not that clean, and you had to put quarters in a machine to shower. The campground was disappointing for the most part. I guess you can't really tell what a campground is like until you actually stay there or visit ahead of time. The only plus is that the campground was really quiet. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
First time on a holiday to this campground suggested by friends. While the grounds are huge, it was a party weekend. Quite the hike to the private beach if you don't mind dogs defecating in the water around you while you swim and folks drinking beer, etc. There was heavy smell of marijuana. Noticed cops patrolling. Unmanned fireworks at beach and two injured. The bathrooms were okay but buggy. The trailer we rented from a private person had a great exterior but the interior was terrible. The owners of the campground said there was fishing, but nothing, just a dock. They were extremely friendly and there were some activities planned (bingo). If the owner operated the rental sites perhaps would have been better. We will not return to this campground on a holiday. We camped here in a Campground Cabin.
Kind of a tired CG. Very nice owners, but lots of work needed to make this place nice. Roads were uneven, rutted and tight. Lots of "permanent" residents, some of whom were a little edgy looking. An adequate place to stay a night in a jam, but not a destination CG. We camped here in a Motorhome.
OK, I admit we should have read the previous review before we camped here but we were (too) eager to get off the road. Rough, full of ruts, narrow dirt roads were the beginning. Even the friendly, helpful management can't change that--unless they decided to grade and gravel the roads, that is. The parking lot where boat trailers were stored was full of grass, more ruts and probably mosquito heaven! We did manage to get our 35' motorhome past the ruts and low hanging branches and into the narrow parking pad without getting stuck. Most sites were "permanent" and a good share of those were junky and cluttered. Saturday night noise included firecrackers and people yelling about midnight. Definitely not worth the $30 a night rate, and probably not the $15 Passport America (Sun-Thurs.) rate! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground was a disappointment. Sites are very awkward if not impossible for rigs over 30 foot. Many overhanging limbs on roads and sites make navigation almost impossible. Voltage got as low as 98 volts so we couldn't run a/c unit. Four wheel ATV's running all over campground. Noise after quiet time; had to call management. Took another 1/2 hour for the noise to get low enough to sleep. Campground is a Passport America park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We have stayed at Westcott Beach SP twice, both times on the 'plateau', which will be the focus of this review. The plateau area is relatively new, with larger campsites that can accommodate big equipment. While all sites are back-in, they are relatively easy to get your trailer and tow vehicle into. All plateau sites have 40A electric; no full hook-up sites, but there are several locations where you can fill your freshwater tank, including the dump station. As a newer camping area, it features OPHRP's current standard bathroom/shower design, which has two shower stalls on each side (men/women) accessed through the bathroom area, as well as two self-contained handicapped bathrooms with a shower, sink and toilet. Has an outdoor sink, which is handy for washing dishes. The bathroom facilities are well-maintained. As others have noted, the main part of the state park is on the other side of the road; there are additional campsites on that side that are closer to the lake, but they are not as spacious or level as the plateau area sites. Westcott Beach SP has a swimming area, but no camp store or concession stand; the privately-owned Westcott Convenience store is close at hand with firewood, groceries, propane and other camping necessities. Overall, a good experience if you're looking to relax or are visiting Sackett's Harbor or Watertown. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This campground provides plenty of activities for family campers. There is a large beach and day use area with a great playground that provides a lot of physical activity for children. There is also a vending machine and arcade building for day use. The campsites are medium size yet some are close to each other. Many sites are RV occupied and tend to block the views, but there are some inner sites for campers using tents. There are several comfort stations providing hot showers as well as potable water stations throughout the campground. There are a few electric sites. Quiet hours are pretty strict and may be enforced by other campers as well as a rare check-up by park officials. This campground is recommended for those looking for a quiet camping experience and an early lights out policy. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Westcott is a great place to camp. Every year we camp Memorial Day & Labor Day with a large group, over 10 trailers/tents. Love the beach, playgrounds. Everyone is very friendly, and we will return each year. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a state park with no amenities except extra large grassy sites and scenery. We were up on the "plateau" area which did not allow pets. The main campground is across the road on Lake Ontario. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
