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. We camped at Yellow Lantern Kampground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

The 1890 House is only open Thursday thru Sunday so we didn't get to see it. The CNY Living History Center is a good attempt to chronicle the history of Cortland, various military conflicts, early tractors and farms, and the Brockway Truck Co.

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. We camped at Yellow Lantern Kampground in a Motorhome.

This campground was so overrun and not well maintained over the years. The bathroom and sinks were horrendous in both locations with multiple types of bugs dirt and grime. The toilets would not flush and were clogged. Management was not available as the hours stated on the office and were not very helpful. The sites were very big but no pull thru. Bugs were horrendous, but the grounds backed up to a river. The sites were muddy and in need of new gravel. The hookups were at the very back of the site so when we arrived we had to run to Walmart for an extension cord. We stayed there for 2 nights while visiting my husbands home town. We will not be staying there again. We camped at Yellow Lantern Kampground in a Travel Trailer.

We called before hand to see if they had all the hookups, and they said yes. We got there around 4h00 and the manager wanted us to park in the road but we couldn't get to the 50 amp outlet, so we had to get the manager to come back to give us another site, he gave us a site with no sewer, and gave us the internet log in password, but their network did not work. So for 34 $ it was a robbery. Bad roads in, mud, mud and mud. No service on the grounds. We camped at Yellow Lantern Kampground in a Fifth Wheel.

The poorest entry/exit roads I have encountered. The interior roads were not much better. The park is not well maintained. You can get an idea of the overall quality of the park when you walk into the office. We will not stay here again. Follow your bliss, but you won't find it here. We camped at Yellow Lantern Kampground in a Motorhome.

The manager was not present when we were arrived and had to buzz them to come to the office to check us in. They acted like they were doing us a favor checking us in, not very friendly. The site we were assigned was so badly rutted we had to asked for a different site. Again they acted like they were doing us a favor by changing sites. WiFi was very good, unable to get local channels on antenna. It is close to I-81. I would drive an additional 100 miles before I stayed here again. We camped at Yellow Lantern Kampground in a Fifth Wheel.

It's springtime so things are just getting underway, but our stay was quiet, pleasant and relaxing. Very friendly seasonal campers and I'm looking forward to returning with our camping friends in June. Very kid friendly and extremely close to I-81 We camped at Yellow Lantern Kampground in a Fifth Wheel.

I realize October in upstate New York is off season, but this scary place looked like it had been deserted for years or a setting for a Stephen King film, truly disgusting. The bathrooms, showers and all other facilities were closed; the manager was unhelpful bordering rude, and they charged $39. We got the GS discount of 10%, but it still was way overpriced. The only thing going for it was its easy access of I-8,1 and there very very few options within 80 miles. Of the 40+ RV parks we have visited since May, this ranks about the worst. We camped at Yellow Lantern Kampground in a Motorhome.

Additional charge of $3.50 if you want to use your air conditioner. The power at sites 4 and 5 were poor with voltages of 108 under full load. We had to use our Hughes autoformer here (like we do at a lot of old parks in the Northeast.) Our site was not very level. Road into the campground in very poor condition as were the interior roads. Tree limbs need pruning. The visual appeal of this park is very poor with many junky seasonal campers that look like they haven't been moved in years. Some sites will have a clear view to the south for satellite, but you will need to walk around and look for one. This is a *very* tired old park that is in dire need of some TLC and capital improvements. It is highly unlikely we would ever stay here again. We camped at Yellow Lantern Kampground in a Motorhome.
