8 RV Parks near Cortland, New York
Apr 2017 - $14.00
Stopped here during a pouring rain. A fellow from the office went out to see which site had least water. This is an older park with older services, but they work. - Rv Sun Seeker

Stayed here for a week. There are no 50amp sites only 30. Considering it was fall and cool, this worked out ok. We only used our AC a couple times but we couldn't use more than 1 heating element at a time (microwave and coffee maker, for example).
Would definitely not stay here in the summer time. One of their rules is you can't run your AC while you are off the property. That's not going to happen with us especially if we are leaving our two dogs home and have to leave.
Another negative is they have no sewer sites but the "honey wagon" comes around on Monday's and Fridays (extra cost involved).
The park was nearly empty so very quiet. We will be in the area next year at this same time and will be staying here again. All the sites are back in. - Cobb_74

No sewers, and no water at this time of the year, but for the $14 Passport rate, this place is okay. You get a spot by the lake with 30 amp power and a dump station on the way out if needed. A lot of sites had satellite dishes or patios left behind, suggesting there are probably a good number of seasonal campers in summer. There was only one other RV there when we stayed over. The place hosts country music shows and dances every weekend all year and I'll bet it's lively in the summer. - Voyageurs

Caveat: the camp was closing, as almost all the seasonal people were gone. So the camp might not have been kept as well as it would be in the summer.
Do not expect 50 amps. We chose 50 amps when reserving the site, and the outlet was changed after we arrived. But the breaker remained a 30 amp, and that is what we got. - J M Rowe

We had electric and water hookup that worked fine (full hookups are available). Our 38' fifth wheel was an easy fit in our pull through site. Campsites are in a level, grassy field with lots of trees. Propane and camp store sales are available as is a laundry room. Staff was very friendly. The campground is close to town and an easy access off-81. We will definitely stay here again. - Melodycthomas

This park said they had 50 amps. With our class A we need that to efficiently run it. Once there we discovered that was not true. The wiring was incorrect. Voltage also very low. Had to use generator every time we wanted to use any thing. Complained. They offered a $5 discount. They would not honor passport America either. Suggest big rigs go elsewhere. People were in nìce but park not suitable. - carnbru

This campground is in a beautiful, fairly remote setting, with campsites surrounding a lake. It was very quiet and clean. I stayed for a week at the very end of the season, and the owner was very accommodating, letting me stay past the official closing date. The rate I quoted above is based on a weekly rate, including taxes, and reflects a $5 reduction for the last two nights because they turned the water off in preparation for closing for the season. I appreciated the owner doing this for me.
Most of the sites are seasonal. As far as I could tell, the nightly campers were all in one row, extremely close to each other, with no trees. That's one of the features I didn't like so much.
There was virtually no TV reception, and although I paid an extra $3 a day for the outsourced wifi, it didn't work well enough to be useable. I had to use my mifi.
Although the bathhouse was clean, I found it annoying to discover that it cost $.50 per five minutes to take a shower. After returning to my rig to get the quarters, I put $1.00 in so I could get a 10 minute shower, but it shut off after five minutes. Which meant I had to get fully out of the shower in the middle, and fumble for more quarters, to get the next 5 minutes. To add insult to injury, the timed lights in the bathroom turned off and I had to finish in complete darkness. This all seemed very petty to me. I have not run across this at any other campground.
Overall, the area of the campground around the lake and up the hill into the woods is very lovely and I had several very pleasant walks through the area. The owner was very accommodating to me. However, I didn't like the closeness of the sites, the lack of TV and wifi, and the shower system. I would probably look to stay elsewhere the next time I'm in the area. - CamperChris4

A nice CG off the interstate which makes it very quiet. Owners certainly give a lot of attention to the grounds and were welcoming upon arrival. The seasonal units surround the lake but everyone has some access for catch and release fishing. WES all worked fine. GPS takes you down a small road (Tannery) which may be a little troublesome for big rigs. Keep going straight and it goes to the campground. Wifi is available at a nominal daily charge which is unusual in this day. Would certainly stay again. Over night sites not exciting, but more than suitable for an overnight. - Team Asphalt

Great stopover. Nice level pull-through, gravel roads in great shape. Campground has lots of seasonals, and quite a few transient sites, and is immaculate. Owners are extremely friendly, guide you to your site, and RV themselves. Over the air TV from Cortland was fine. No Wi-Fo due to the rural area. Follow campground directions, not your GPS. - 2hams

NY Site 55 Sunday June 5, 2016 Cost: $28.75 This park has about 10 sites with electricity and 60 sites all located in the woods. Our site was huge with a picnic table and fire pit and an easy walk to the bath house. There are hiking trails along the gorge viewing five waterfalls and geological formations. Fishing is allowed and in the winter snowmobiling and cross country skiing. Other activities are baseball, basketball, bird watching, picnic tables, playground and recreation programs. There is a spring fed old fashion swimming hole during the summer. The bath houses are clean and it is a quiet campground during the week. The hiking trail to the main waterfall is a easy half mile walk. Very easy and definitely worth it. One can continue on the two rim trails or the gorge trail which goes across the river a number of times. I would make reservations for the weekends and in the summer. We would return to this campground! North on route 38A to 20 west in Seneca Falls is the National Women's Rights Historic Museum which is free but worth a stop! Very well done! - gsnakehill

We used this park to bike around Owasco Lake. There are 10 electric only sites. Site 54 had 50 amps, the other 9 have 30 amp. Site 51 is satellite friendly, a few more may be. Sites are asphalt and level, with a lot of grassy space between sites, all with picnic tables and a fire ring. The nonelectric sites are all grass. It is well kept, a very nice state park. There are very nice hiking trails and a natural swimming pond in the summer. Great for dogs! Did not use the bath house but it is tiled and looks nice. No wifi, but good Verizon 3G service and acceptable ATT service. There is a seviceable market in Moravia one mile away for essentials. Very quiet this time of year and we would come back. Price reflects non NY resident. - harrisgowing

We stayed here in a cabin as a base for some winery tours. The park itself is beautiful with miles of hiking trails along the creek. In the summer they dam a section and have a swimming area. The bathrooms by the cabins are a little older but were kept clean (with the exception of some bugs in the showers). There is a new shower house/bathroom in the camping area which is very nice but the water did not get as hot as it did in the older shower house. The cabin was decent with an apartment sized fridge/freezer and also a stove/oven. The cabins only have twin beds (one bunk bed and 2 separate beds). We ended up pushing the 2 beds together (not easy as they are kind of heavy). I will warn that the mattresses are HARD. We were lucky enough to have water right next to our cabin. We also brought an electric heater with us as the cabins have no heat and no fans. It was also nice that we were able to have our dogs in the cabin with us. We would definitely rent a cabin here again. - chemgoddess1

What a gem. Surprised that Myers Park hasn't been reviewed before. A town park located right on Cayuga Lake! No pool but who needs it when you have the lake? Sites are at back of park, but can see a little from sites and easy walk. Our site (#11) required a couple boards to level but overall fairly level. Reservations REQUIRED; you must call during business hours. Only campground in county directly on the lake. About 2 1/2 miles to some shopping and 5 miles to good shopping (restaurants, groceries, hardware, etc), 10 miles to downtown Ithaca. Wonderful onsite host. "Bathroom" near camping are a couple porta-potties, flush and showers in the swimming area. Train behind park runs twice a day - on most days. - BandD

Jammed with people on the weekend. Better during the week. People's sites are trashy looking. Mostly dirt and pot holes in roads. No water pressure. Mgmt was nice and allowed us to change sites so we would have mostly grass. Could be nice because property is beautiful with lots of trees but would need a good clean up of seasonal or permanent sites and not putting sites on top of each other. - Mmd57

Very nice family park. Very quiet at night. Everyone seemed to be having a good time. - rhn5595

Avoid. Make no mistake: I like rustic, old fashioned campgrounds, but this place feels way off and the facilities are worse. The photos and description here and on their website are misleading at best!
-- Our campsite was not remotely level or flat, and it was covered in leaves. I'm talking about huge dips and valleys in the site that made it hard to get four legs of chair all touching the ground, let alone a table.
-- Our firepit was filled with trash
-- The sewer connection at our site did not have a threaded connection, so I had to weigh down my hose with rocks.
-- My boys reported than the fun center/arcade was filled with mostly broken games
-- The "massive" pool ain't that big -- and the surface of it is broken up enough that you're walking around on concrete cracks and pebbles.
-- The bathrooms were ridiculous. I suppose they were clean-ish (lots of bugs, though), but how about a toilet seat that's not decades old? And how about you make it so you can't plainly see people peeing in the other bathroom while standing in the doorway of your own? I didn't feel adventurous enough to try the showers.
Overall, there's crap everywhere at this camp. It feels like people have been camping there for YEARS and have left toys and possessions everywhere. It also seems like the campground is maybe buying (used? tagsale?) consumer products as "public" items? Hard to tell. Either way, it makes you feel like everywhere on the grounds has already been "claimed" by someone else who left there stuff there. The haphazard layout of campsites, with tents and trailers all mashed together doesn't help you understand what's what.
Two people in two days commented to us how short term campers were ruining the place for seasonal people. This is CLEARLY a campground for seasonal people and we were clearly not welcome.
-- I thought the location was close (10 minutes) to Ithaca
-- They come around and get your trash twice. - Thiel

We had a non-hookups site (no electric, no water, no sewer), and for that no-frills site I thought the price was a little steep. Also steep was the site itself. Steep and narrow. It was not impossible to back into it, but it was a little challenging. Add the un-trimmed tree branches overhead, and you can see that I had my hands full. The campground itself was peaceful and comfortable. It was very woodsy (which I like). There was a hiking trail right at the back of our site, which meant constant foot traffic all day on the nice day we were there. That's fine. I like seeing people out enjoying nature. It also made it convenient when I wanted to take the hike too. The lakeshore part of the park is in a whole different area. That area is really spacious, and gives a lot of options of activities. Fishing, swimming (in season), boating, lawn activities. Really nice. Of course the falls are the main attraction, and they did not disappoint. - eduJamesE

Bathrooms were a bit dirty. Campsites were nice and private, not too crammed together. Easy walk down a long flight of stairs to get to the trailhead to the falls. - BeeNbop

We stayed two nights at this state park on the southern shore of Cayuga Lake in the Finger Lakes Region of NY. There were 78 sites, many not level, in the woods with clean bathhouses including showers. A number of water spigots in the two loop camping area. The camping area is not easy to find. One needs to stop by the park office on the lake side of 89 to register then head north for a little bit and find the park road and start to head up. The camping road will be on the left. If you reach the parking area for the falls you have gone too far. There is also a parking area on 89 for the lower falls. A number of trails to the falls and one can be found at the end of loop two in the campground. Check-in was easy and we enjoyed our stay even though it was a rainy day. The falls are considered one of the outstanding natural attractions of the northeast. They plunge 215 feet over rocky cliffs into the gorge, and what a fantastic sight it is. There is a picnic area, swimming and boat dock with slips on the lake side of 89. The park is also used for cross country skiing, sledding and skating. Summer concerts are held on the lake side. We would return to camp here. - gsnakehill

One of our favorite places to stay. Electric sites fill up fast, so reserve ahead. Most sites are good for big rigs, but not all. Swimming is great , hiking Lucifer Falls is spectacular. - Ralph Hunt

We stayed in the sites with 30 amp service. These sites are not level, and we had a great deal of trouble leveling out 40 foot RV. Shorter rigs or trailers would find these sites satisfactory for leveling. If we stay here again, we will stay in the level sites in the field, that do not have electrical service, and would use our generator. There is much to do in this area, with a spectacular hike through a gorge with many waterfalls, and swimming in a pool in the park that is fed by a waterfall. Also there are nearby wine tours through the Finger Lakes,as well as the Corning glass museum about a 40 min drive from the park. - hoppytoad
