The park is very nice and clean, we loved the dog park. The price is high but included all activities (ie. Mini golf, pedal carts, laser tag, disc golf, jumping pillow, splash pool). Our only complaint was that since we were camping in mid June through the week and most local schools are not on summer break yet, many of the included activities were not open or had shorter hours during the weekdays. Also, due to the timing, the children's pool closed at 5pm on the weekdays which seemed kind of early. We thought the nightly rate was high but reasonable if it included the extra activities. However, since many of the extra activities were not available, it would have been nice if they had adjusted the rate for those weekdays. I'm sure this park is great fun during high season, we probably just hit it at the wrong time. Although, on the bright side, since many sites were empty, we had a nice peaceful stay.
One other recommendation is that they trim the low branches of their trees, we scraped the roof of our motor home on our way out of the park. - 4RollingGs

Of the three pools, we only visited the kids pool in the front with the spray ground. The kids loved it but the internet and pamphlets state the pools are open until 8pm. They closed it at 7pm! If we had known in advance, we would have arranged our schedule so the kids had more than 5 minutes to swim. The water was extremely dirty and cloudy all weekend. Kids enjoyed the full basketball court, dogs enjoyed the dog park, nice playgrounds, too! Great crafts and activities over the weekend. I loved they had 80 lbs and under/over times for the bounce pillow (bring socks!) - Camping Mer

We had a bit of an issue when assigned our site. They corrected it easily as this was a weekday, and camp was quite open. It could have been an issue on a weekend. We had excellent hook ups that worked well, and we had a site with satellite coverage. Verizon worked well also. Only issue we saw was that the interior roads are a bit narrow. Site leveling was easy. We would stay here again. - hug448844

This is just across the road from the golf course. where you register. They did not have any discounts. We were the only campers there at the time of our visit. The owners were friendly and helpful. We had a difficult time finding the sewage on several of the lots but had our choice. Well mowed, but needed trimming around the trees and bushes. Trees have grown and do offer some shade. The cement pads need repair. We enjoyed our stay there, and would stay again. A good place to stay if you are watching your budget. - lynette47

Be careful booking if you have pets. Pets are only allowed in loops 100, 200 and 700 and you need to show a rabies certificate at check-in. Our site was just long enough for our 40 ft MH with the Jeep parked nearly in the road. Site was level and private. Electric hook-up only. We filled water tank on the way out. Three pump outs at dump station. Park is 4,000 acres. Gorgeous scenery. 10 miles from campsite to Visitor Center.
BEWARE that Portageville entrance is closed for bridge construction until further notice. Our Magellan GPS routed us this way and we had to take a long detour to enter at the Castile entrance and then had a long drive to camp registration. The Perry entrance is closest to camping. - Bunci

Thurs/Friday, Saturday June 3-5. Site 708
This park was rated the number one park in the nation last year and it deserves it rating. The campground with 270 electric sites has five non pet loops and 3 pet loops - need to show rabies certification. There are some big sites and a number of un-level sites and it is hard to tell from the description on Reserve America. The campground sites with pets were booked the weekend we were there. Bath houses were very clean and they are individual rooms with 4 toilets and showers in each loop. There is a fitness trail along the campground road and when we were there wild flowers were in bloom. The park itself is huge with 14,350 acres along the Genesee River. The Gorge with its huge walls and the river winding its way is beautiful and there are three major waterfalls - Upper, Middle (which is lit at night) and Lower. Many more small waterfalls, 75 trails, Museum, Inn, Nature Center, restaurants, restrooms and gift shops. The Gorge is ten miles away from the campground. The drive down to the Visitor Center from the campground is beautiful with pullouts, picnic areas and trails to overlooks. The Visitor Center parking lot is not big so parking for RV's can be difficult unless you go in the morning. Middle Falls does have more parking and Lower Falls has a big lot. Everyone should camp at least once at this great NY State Park. - gsnakehill

Letchworth State Park and the Genesee River valley, the "Grand Canyon of the East", is well worth a visit. Allow at least a full day for touring the overlooks and stopping at the Visitors Center and nearby museum. The campground has 8 loops, with some designated as no pets. We were on site 824, which was spacious and reasonably private with a gravel driveway, but off level. It took several blocks under our rear wheels and jacks to get level. The sites are electric only, but water spigots are scattered around the loops, and a three lane dump station is located along the entrance road. Our Verizon cell and data service worked well, although the signal levels were towards the low side. Our site had a Dish network eastern arc satellite view through a gap in the trees, but the western arc and DirecTV birds would have been difficult to see. Many sites are heavily treed though, making them even more difficult for satellite use. OTA TV stations for the major networks are about 35 miles away, and should be viewable with good antenna system. Overall this is a really nice park, and we will be returning to some of the places we skipped due to rain. We will try for a more level site though. - NYDutch

This was the worst campground I ever stayed at. Our site for a big rig was in a field. The site was uneven and I had to block one wheel. The power was broken, the water didn't work. We left after 1 night. Avoid this campground. Last capital improvement was probably in the 70's. - User1611

pros: The sites are huge, grassy and there are tons of open places where you can basically camp in any direction, formation or arrangement you like. The fires can be as large as you like. You can spread out, park several vehicles and the prices aren't too bad. The hay ride is fun, depending on your driver (one of the regular drivers is tame, the other wild/fun). Pets are welcome, and not segregated to a particular part of the park. cons: The park's infrastructure is really aged and unmaintained leaving us with little electricity (not enough to run a television) and low enough voltage to cause problems with electrical appliances and television. The electrical connections are worn and appeared to be household 15 am circuits with inadequate weather protection. There was chronically low water pressure. We had to fill the fresh tank and use the pump to have enough pressure for shower or washing dishes. The pool is small, and was at capacity with less than 20 people. The water in the pool was ice cold (too many people coming/going and a hose constantly refilling the pool). The playgrounds are aged and rusted, not exactly safe with exposed sharp points and ill fitting slides, stinging insect hives and rusted swing chains. Full-timers raced about on noisy golf carts regularly exceeding the speed limit and kicking up dust. Neighbors ignored quiet hour rules, and had the nerve to complain in the morning when children made noise after 9 am. We won't be returning to this campground. - doodler

We ended up staying at Sugar Creek Glen as our attempt to stay at another park was awful. We had a week of 90 degree heat and found ourselves running the motorhome generator much of the day. Moving down the street to Sugar Creek Glen upgraded us to electric sites along with site water. While this was our second stay at Sugar Creek Glen we were glad to see new owners this year. This is a gorgeous park alongside a creek which just needed some TLC to make it spectacular. The new owners were just what the park needed. They went out of their way to meet our request for a site right on the creek. This was important as our two girls enjoyed playing in the stream. It was nice having the kids in our view throughout the day. It also made it easy for the whole family to enjoy our daily walk up the creek to the multiple falls. We also enjoyed the weekend activities of Christmas in July. This presented a visit by Santa, small gifts for the kids, and a large camp fire. We enjoyed the time talking to all of the campers. Comments by the seasonal campers were very supportive of the new management and maintenance of the park. Our impression of everything was similar. We certainly look forward to coming back again next year to see further updates to a wonderful campground. Roads were slightly narrow matching previous reviews; however, we could easily maneuver our 35 ft motorhome without difficulties. - HappyRVCamper2

I wish I had a smaller pop-up like rig to navigate the place. Everything is absolutely beautiful, except some of the seasonal sites. And the inside of the bathroom. Still for $25 a night, it's a good place to hang out for the weekend or more. It's not a resort, but then again the resorts are asking you to pay 3 times as much. Moral: You get what you pay for. - Walt Newman

We stay in the non-electric sites so that we can be next to the stream. There are several waterfalls and fantastic creek walking. The new owners are friendly and working hard to improve the campground while keeping the rustic feel. This place is a favorite of ours but, If you are looking for an RV resort, this is not your place. - Lindalew

I am over ten yr user here, seldom moved to comment. But as others noted, stated ppa rate $17.50 by phone, quoted $19.00 on arrival, hard try to up charge to $21. Refused any but phone quote for w/30 E. So placed on unlevel, precarious, edge of a deep dry gulch with the deep water wellhead ON my postage stamp site. Low voltage, barely allowed by my EMS. Huge tree prevented full use of slide out. Only reasonable campground for many miles or I would have declined and would NOT return nor recommend. No OTA TV and to purchase cable requires fhu and the inflated rate it incurs. - Wicked Witch

We weren't informed that our space was water & electric only, and once we got setup tried to get TV no stations. Later we were out and found someone to talk to, they informed us that for $3 more we could get cable. That was not communicated to us. We weren't given a map of the grounds or informed where the showers or restrooms were. The showers, no hooks for your things in the shower, and the water temp is not adjustable. Not impressed, even though the grounds are well kept. - sambasstuff

We chose this park because we are members of Passport America discount camping club. We were in the area and had to drive a little out of our way to find a reasonable rate for a campsite.
The advertised rate was $16/night on the Passport America site. We called to verify availability before arriving but not the nightly rate. When checking in we were told the rate was $18 and that "they" had it wrong on their website.
Now, $2/night is no big deal for a four-night stay, but it just sours the experience when things are not as they are quoted.
We found a site with full hookups and got settled for the night. The next morning at 8 am the pounding started outside our door. Apparently the RV next door was being replaced with a park model trailer. This park is loaded with seasonal units and very few transient sites. Most of the transient sites they have do not include sewer service. You have to ask for that!
Long story short, we were asked to move so they could get the old trailer out and the new one in. You mean they did not know that the day before?
Once we settled in another site we were fine. The Electric service worked fine, the sewer hookup was a 3" service, but was new, and water pressure was good at 60 psi.
We were in site 23 on the end of a row which was good, close to the laundry, but every golf cart in the place paraded by all day long. It was like being in Florida in February.
The campground was off the main highway through Bath NY so if you are in the area, need a spot for the night, and are Passport members, it will get the job done. Just verify the rate as it is subject to change! - Howard Jaros

Stony Brook State Park is primitive, there are no hookups to speak of. This park is gorgeous. The man made gorge trail is beautiful. The pool that is in the gorge is awesome - cold but awesome. This would be a ten if there were some sort of hookups. Book in advance if you are going on the weekend - - sue100

Beautiful state park, but camping section is at top and not very accessible. Camping area, despite beauty of area, is dissapointing. - travelingdadof2

Nice wooded sites. Very clean bathrooms. I was very disappointed that the swimming area at the campground has been closed. The bathhouse is still present and has 4 lovely showers. The campsites are in need of ground maitenance as some trees have fallen and are blocking access to the brook others are in need of trimming as the branches are very low and makes it difficult to back a TT in place. The lower park is free to all campers and offers a unique "natural" swimming pool, new in 2004 playground, great snack/gift shop and lovely trails. - 52 camp

Stayed here for an Escapees Rally in mid June. Lawns were extremely well kept. Attention to details on the camp design and layout was apparent. The pavilion was one of the best we've seen. Staff could not have been nicer. Only thing I could think of to criticize is the lack of 50 amp connections in the area we were in but that's a very minor issue. There is a $2.50/ day fee if you use air conditioner but we didn't need it. The permanent seasonal sites and rigs are meticulously well kept, no junk trailers at all like most parks. Main complaint for all of us is not the campgrounds fault and that is no cell phone service. You can occasionally get a signal if you walk around. BUT the Wi-Fi is free. Works near the office only, however. We have a Wi-Fi roof antenna and had a great signal but most campers need to move to the office area. Very pretty setting and the campsites are pretty long and wide. We will definitely be here again. - lajuene

Highly recommended! Our tent site was in the back, near woods. A few steps away was a short nature trail leading to amazing waterfalls. You can wade in the falls pools, or hike the falls using water shoes. The pool was cold but clean. Wide open area for sports play. Restrooms were convenient to tent site and were clean. Large group of campers first night kept us up all night screaming and swearing. When we notified management, they spoke with campers and did extra rounds, and rounds later at night to make sure there were no further problems. The grounds were just very pretty. We went jogging through them in the morning. - Martin B

This was our second time camping here, hoping things had improved since the first, but we came for the Halloween weekend and free haunted house that is put on by a large family that camps there. The haunted house was excellent and my kids were scared! However, things were not better, the owners and staff are miserable and very unfriendly. They are not kid friendly, and do not want kids in the store even if they have money to spend. The bathrooms and showers are very old and very dirty. I would not shower in there. The activities are minimal, they did have ceramic painting for the kids. The campground also had a haunted house and hay ride, but those you had to pay extra for. I will never go back to this campground again, it is not a family friendly place, they are more interested in having older people with no kids as a seasonal site. - krjz4

This park is built on the side of a hill. It is steep to enter and exit. Bring a lot of lumber for leveling. There are old decks alongside trailers that are falling down. It is 50 years old and it looks it. There have been no improvements to the sites at all. If you have a rig over 30' do not even bother. Sites are not deep enough to handle rigs built today. Buildings at the park are in need of improvement and remodeling. It is an RV park trying to be a mobile home park. We would never stay here again. - Ray Morse

Like the other comments on this site, the campground is very steep. We walked down to the store and the other playground, and then had to walk back up. This was not too fun. Our site was up at the top of the park. Overall, I didn't have a problem getting my hybrid trailer up here. I pull it with a V8 Grand Cherokee. My 3 year old son really liked playing at the playground area. The pool was nice and clean. We were close enough that we just walked down there, so we didn't deal with parking. The few interactions that we had with the staff were pleasant and the camp store was well stocked like others said. I had to ask where the dump station was as it wasn't clearly marked. As for leaving, I put the truck in 4 wheel drive low range, and drive 1, and just idled down the hill. But like others said, it is really steep, and I could see your truck brakes heating up when heading down the hill. - penberth

As others have commented, there is a steep hill to enter/exit the campground but our 21' trailer posed no problem. We did not find the staff particularly friendly or welcoming. The campground needs updating. The site we had was smaller and lacked privacy; however, we did have a little view of the lake which is located across the street. There is another campground down the street called South Shore which looked in worse condition than this one. - naturelover

This park is a "find" for anyone who wants to explore the Finger Lakes area of New York. It is a quiet, well-maintained park that has been around for many years. There is a caution about getting to the park because of the steep hills in the area, but once there you will be glad you made the trip. Sites are spacious and many are shaded. It is also not that far from Corning Glass Works and the city of Rochester which has the George Eastman House and many other places of interest. (We used to live in the area so we may be a little prejudice) :-) - elfforty

We try other campgrounds but always come back to this one. It has everything we love about a campground except for cell service for our phones! The pool, the playground, the mini-golf, the fishing pond, the creek, the hiking trail, the dances on Saturday night, the wagon rides. The kids love it and so do we. The store is lacking a little, but we normally bring all we need. I cannot rave about this place enough! - DianneD

This camp ground is definitely for seasonal campers. Outsiders do not feel welcome here. We truly did not feel welcome here. We have been camping for five years, and this is the first camp ground that we have been to that made us feel very uncomfortable. The owner was extremely rude to everyone in our group. Lights didn't work in our cabins, and when we asked to have fixed the owner was nasty about having to fix it. Outside light was out; I was told to shake it to make it work. I feel that if I'm paying $180 for three nights I should not have to shake my light. Not a place for kids over the age of ten. Nothing for them to do. I would not recommend this campground. - tryell
