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. We camped at Oneida Shores Park in a Motorhome.

Sites are wide, some are not very deep; most are level. Bathrooms were clean enough, but could have been better. Nice spot for our Golden to swim in the lake. Good location to visit family and locations on the north or west side of Syracuse. We camped at Oneida Shores Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We camped here late August midweek so it was not crowded. We were in the area for State Fair. We were surprised that it was not more crowded. Our site was on the water and we had some gorgeous sunrises and sunsets. The beach was closed, which was disappointing since I thought it was still going to be open since it was before Labor Day, but it looked to be very nice. The bathrooms were clean. You do have to drive to get to the showers as these are near the beach. Only complaint was we arrived after 6pm and were unable to obtain the code to open the door to the restroom. Had to leave a message on the campground phone line but they did eventually respond. Just wish they would let people know that if you arrive late this is something you need to be aware of. i did feel safer knowing that there was a code for the door though. Sites were open but shady. Site were OK in size..you might feel a little crowded during peak season. Lots of places to walk our dogs. We camped at Oneida Shores Park in a Tent.
Nice county park. Only 3/4 mile from route 81. Has a boat ramp, playground and beach area with life guards. Ice and firewood is available. Sites are a little small, however most will accommodate a 40' foot motorhome. Park is located on Oneida lake, the site of many bass fishing tournaments. We camped at Oneida Shores Park in a Motorhome.
