We paid extra because it was a race weekend at Watkins glen and we couldn't use Passport America. We saw that they had a heated pool so we paid the extra money to stay here. The pool was very cold! Needless to say, we didn't go in. There was no cable TV available at our site ($3 extra) and WiFi was so much per hour or daily rate. It is an older park with mostly permanent trailers, but there were quite a few pull-throughs for overnighters. It's easy on/off I-86 so it was convenient. I don't think we would stay unless we could use Passport America, since their "heated" pool doesn't seem to be heated as advertised. The pool area had a good bit of junk laying around, empty sunblock spray, old socks, etc. We camped at Camp Bell Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The host could not have been nicer, telling us about the Corning Museum and directing us to an Auto Zone in Corning. The back-in site was pretty level, on grass but in the open so we could use our satellite dish. Mostly seasonal stays but a lot of overnighters. Very quiet and clean. We camped at Camp Bell Campground in a Motorhome.

Carmen end Ed, the owners have been very helpful with our group of 9 rigs. Check in is efficient and thorough. Gravel drive ways to the camp sites are well maintained. Site access is easy with wider than usual pull through sites. There are also many backin sites. Some sites are shaded, some are not. There are pleasant playgrounds for children, a clean swimming pool, and even 10 horse shoe areas. We enjoyed use of one of the roofed shelters. We would stay again. We camped at Camp Bell Campground in a Motorhome.

We enjoyed the Corning Glass Museum. The campground sells the normally priced admission vouchers for $13.50. We didn't have time for the Rockwell Museum or Watkins Glen State Park or the Watkins Glen race Track. There is a great restaurant for homemade ice cream about 1/4 mile from the RV Park.

Ed and Carmen are great hosts. Ed recommended great local places to eat.
The sites were level and had great satellite reception. The area for the seasonals was very neat and clean. I wish they had some 50 amp service, and would be glad to pay extra for it, but the price is a good value for every thing you get. We camped at Camp Bell Campground in a Motorhome.

Try Mom's Diner, just about 4 miles north of the RV Park. They are open 7 days a week. Sunday night dinner was great. Some of the local restaurants are not open Sunday night. Breakfast all day and the portions are large. And they have wonderful homemade pies.

Camp Bell CG is an older facility. This campground is a good base from which to tour the western part of the New York Finger Lakes wine region. The overwhelming majority of units on the premises are seasonal campers and they occupy nearly all sites that have any amount of shade. The sites set aside for transient campers are in a large, grassy open area at the rear of the grounds. Sites here are fairly level side to side and a good many of them are pull-throughs. Interior roads are gravel and in excellent condition. There is no separation between you and your neighbor, however the CG management is thoughtful enough to not put two units next to each other if possible. Check-in was quick. The campground store has basic supplies plus souvenir items. We stayed mid-week and even though there are a good number of other campers here, it is very quiet. There is sometimes a bit of traffic noise from nearby I-86 but we did not find that offensive. Grounds & buildings are clean and well-kept. Sewer is not available so we made use of the bath facilities for showering. Water pressure was not overwhelming but acceptable, with plenty of hot water. The shower stalls could benefit from having a grab bar, plus a small seat to use while changing out of and into your clothing. Fixtures are clean however the showers are in need of repair. One stall had no shelf and a broken clothes hook, a second stall's shelf was in need of repair, and a third stall was missing the plastic knob on the mixer faucet handle (the faucet was usable). Basic WiFi is free, but suffered from periods of very slow loading. You have the option of upgrading connectivity for a nominal fee. Access to the dump station is easy. Not a destination campground but an economical choice if your goal is to explore the area. Rate reflects two in our party. We would stay here again. We camped at Camp Bell Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

For those wishing to visit Seneca or Cayuga Lakes it is a bit far to serve that purpose; campgrounds closer to Watkins Glen or Ithaca will be more convenient but will be more expensive.

The Rt. 415 bridge over I-86 is closed for repair, so travelers heading west on I-86/Rt. 17 from Corning are better served by using Exit 41 instead of what GPS or GoogleMaps may show. Access to the CG entrance from the I-86 Exit 41 ramp is a bit tricky, but is passable even for the largest of rigs.

This CG near Corning, NY seems to be mostly for local/regional seasonal campers. It was fine for an overnight stay. Kids would probably like it. IMHO it lacks charm. Most of the sites are occupied by older campers which obviously don't move. It is very clean now (early May). We camped at Camp Bell Campground in a Motorhome.

This was a wonderful campground for an over night stay driving across ny state. I don't remember the exact price we paid but it was well worth it. Pull thru sites large enough to stay hooked up which is a plus for me when looking for just an overnight stop. A lot of them faced each other which would have been even better if traveling with parents and their camper like we do a lot of the time. The playground was wonderful. The pool looked great (even though it was closed as we where here in October). The person checking me in was very friendly and helpful (owner maybe?). Yes there were a lot of permanent sites but they where well maintained.

The possible downsides: some traffic noise (but to be expected with a place easy off easy on). The overnight spots lacked shade from what I could see (no problem in October). No sewer hook ups but an easy to get to dump station. The site was grass which was great for our son and dogs to play in but might be a problem with heavy rain.

We will stay here again for an overnight (drive across by state at least twice a year)and might stay a few nights to explore this area time permitted. We camped at Camp Bell Campground in a Travel Trailer.

As others noted there are a lot of seasonal permanent trailers at this campground. But they are around the perimeter. Not many were in use; I suppose because of the time of year & day of week we stayed. The daily folks are parked on an open grassy area with no trees. As the park wasn't busy the owner kept units well apart. The gravel roads are well kept. The trees were trimmed for high clearance. The grassy sites are level. Only 30 amps & water. There is a dump station that is easy to access. We camped at Camp Bell Campground in a Motorhome.

Rate reflects Passport America discount...cash only. This is a very nice park convenient to the highway. 30amp elec/water pull-through side by side site (no one facing us). Park is well maintained, very clean and tidy. Many seasonal renters. Cable TV is $3/day. Wi-Fi is free for 2 hours every 8 hours but extra time is only $1 for 2 hours more. 15 over the air TV signals available is you have a digital antennae. Plenty of activities for children if you have them with you. This was a great overnight stop...we would definitely return. We camped at Camp Bell Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for two nights while visiting Corning Glass. This is the nicest private park we have visited. There are quite a few seasonals, but they are well-maintained, as is the entire park. The bathroom and shower facilities are the nicest we have seen anywhere. They are not fancy, but they are in excellent condition and very nicely maintained. We would definitely stay here again.

We got off to a rough start when we arrived because there was an inconsiderate jerk in our site who was supposed to be long gone. He said he'd be gone in 20 minutes but he was still there two hours later. No matter. The office told us to use a different site which was actually nicer and more level. The sites were a bit uneven but we were able to get fairly level just through trial and error. Parking is all on grass. Facilities were fine. Staff is very friendly and helpful. I would stay here again. We camped at Camp Bell Campground in a Motorhome.

Conveniently located off I-86, campground offers wooded or field sites on several loops. Seasonal rentals occupy most of the wooded sites, field sites can be close together. Pavilion with clean showers, game room, and laundry has a second floor meeting/event space. Office has some groceries, camping supplies and gift items. Owner is very friendly and helpful.

Fairly large campground. About two-thirds appeared to be permanent, with most temporary campsites in the back, grassy section. Park seemed well maintained. Bathrooms were clean, in spite of our being there at a very busy time, with lots of kids/teens, apparently on a school or church trip. They were chaperoned and well behaved. There is a nice pool. Site was easily accessible and level. Electric and water. No sewer or dump site. A honey wagon is available for an added price. We were there one night and didn’t need it. Price reflects Passport America, plus $4 supplemental charge, plus $3 cable. There is a store, with limited supplies, with the office. We would return. We camped at Camp Bell Campground in a Motorhome.
