11 Parks near Fair Haven, New York

This is a huge New York state park with several camping areas that are really spread out from each other. The campground with electricity is called the Bluff Camping Area. It is a wooded area on the top of a high bluff with a steep road going to it. Next to it on the bluff is the Lakeview Camping Area which overlooks Lake Ontario and has 2 electric sites on either side of the restrooms. The beautiful wide, long sand beach was about ½ mile from our campsite. There is a lovely pond (that is connected to the lake by a channel) with swans, ducks and geese and a place to rent or put in your small boat for paddling around. There is a boat launch on Little Sodus Bay (that borders the park) for boats that arrive on trailers and a dock for tying them up. There are cabins to rent here as well. The town of Fair Haven is very close to the park. Our site was large, and level and very shaded. - ShoreXplorers

Fair Haven Beach was a beautiful spot, although we were somewhat bothered by extremely hungry insects. Our site (#79) was level, but slightly damp. Bathhouse was older, but well kept and the water for showers was plentiful and hot. It was a bit over a mile's walk from our site to the beach, but the walk was lovely. The only negative was that the "view" of Lake Ontario from the bluff area was mostly obscured by over-grown vegetation on the lake side of the chain-link fence. It would be nice if the park maintenance crew could cut the weeds down so that people could see the fantastic view. - spencersmom

We got very lucky and reserved only days before the 4th of July weekend. We reserved the 3rd and 4th online, and were able to book the 5th when we arrived, so we had three wonderful nights there. There were plenty of places to walk - which we like to do - and then have ice cream at the park store next to the swimming beach. We would definitely camp at Fair Haven again, and regard it as one of the nicest parks in New York State. - GaryCamper

I stayed here for 4 nights to move my daughter into college. As a result I wasn't at the campground much, and didn't take advantage of the facilities. It was a nice clean park with about 80% seasonal campers. There are only about 20 transitional sites, all pull-thrus. There was plenty of room for my 38' RV and truck. Electrical worked fine (I used 30 amp) and other hook-ups were convenient. No cable TV, not a problem for me, over the air not bad. I had difficulty with WiFi, but I don't believe it was the fault of the campground. I really enjoyed the area (check out Sodus Point), the one day I had to myself. The owner I presume, was very friendly and helpful. I will be making a few trips out here during the next 4 years and will likely stay at Cherry Grove. I grade it a 10 because it served my needs perfectly for the time I was there, all at a great price. Good experience all around. Thank you Susan! - Litespeed

Nice park for visiting the area. WIFI was an extra $7/wk for each device and well worth it. This is the best RV park WIFI we've ever had. I'd be happy to pay the fee at every park. - UllaPool

Very nice park with level gravel pull thru. Staff helpful and friendly. Many seasonal units. Most sites have shade trees. Many activities for children and adults. Swimming pool clean and well maintained. Bathrooms and showers exceptionally clean. They do have an extra fee for AC use and for Wi-Fi. We would stay here again. - atwig

We stayed here for 3 nights while attending the Sterling Renaissance Fair. Staff was friendly and helpful. Park is pretty basic, with no pull-through sites. There is no Wi-Fi here either. Sites were level enough, but rather soft and my levelers sunk in a bit. W/S/E all worked very well. Park is quiet and worked well for us. Being 5 miles from the Fair went a long way in overlooking some of the shortcomings. - BounderPounder

This is a very nice campground located 4 miles south of town. Sites are all back-in; some more level than others. Lots of trees and plenty of grass with newer looking picnic tables. Campground is clean and appears well-maintained. All utilities are located at the back of the site. Owners are not always on site, so make reservations or contact the park if you are planning on staying. - DiplomatTraveler

Excellent park. Three miles to Lake Ontario. Level sites, some open (satellite friendly) and some shaded. 4 cabins available as well as tent spaces. Lots are spacious compared to other parks in the area. Spaces could easily accommodate 45 foot rigs. Park was neglected for some time due to family health issues but management is busily getting it back into shape. No playground, but plenty of room for kids to run and roam. Beautiful covered pavilion. This park is now my preferred place to stay while visiting family in area. - davedopp

Beautiful view of Lake Ontario. Staff was warm and welcoming. Good wifi, & cable. We would walk across the road for ice cream and the most fabulous sunsets you can imagine. Definitely will return. - Lunchy

This was a nostalgia stay for me. I had stayed here, in their small Cabins, back in the early 80's during a trip to the Syracuse Dirt Modified race. To my surprise the Campground was still there.
We stayed here one night in a 30 amp, water, sewer back-in site that was right across the street from Lake Ontario. All the utilities worked well, including the WiFi. The staff was very friendly and helpful.
While the Campground is small, mostly grass sites (level) it's big plus is it's location and the fantastic Sunsets across Lake Ontario.
As another person mentioned, there is no beach or boardwalk, but there are a number of picnic tables across the street along the shore at an Ice Cream Stand and grass areas to take your own chairs to watch the sun set.
We will return in the future. - Russ G

Nice campground in a great location across the street from Lake Ontario and adjacent to Oswego College. - Appleknocker

We had a most enjoyable mid week stay here with two grandsons and 3 big dogs.
Many of the sites appear to be "seasonal" and are well maintained.
The site that we occupied for 4 nights was on the "back loop". These sites are spacious, partially wooded and quite private. No sewer but a dump station was available. Only a very few 50 amp sites are available so be advised to call ahead. No cable or Wi-Fi. The pool was spotless. No laundromat. Staff is attentive and very pleasant.
The entire campground is very well groomed. Although the restrooms are not as modern as many that we have encountered they are cleaned regularly and are more than adequate.
Wood carvings are sprinkled throughout the entire campground...fantastic! It is fun just to stroll around and discover them.
Although a dog park isn't available, leashed dogs are welcome to walk the extensive campgrounds and the nearby State Park trails.
Very family friendly! Wonderful playground complete with wood carved dragon. We noticed the horseshoe pits, shuffleboard, small shallow lakes in which children could "fish".
Many intriguing weekend activities were offered but we could not participate due to the mid week timing of our stay.
A very tempting and surprisingly well stocked farm stand is on site. I cannot stress this strongly enough...this campground sells fudge "to die for"!!!
We will return next year. - Lab Lovers

This was our 6th time staying at Lake Bluff campground, hadn't stayed there at all in 2013. The owners have made upgrades and keep the grounds looking great! Very friendly and hospitable. - julie stilwell

Although our stay got off to an ominous start, we felt this campground was very nice. We camped here the last weekend of September so there were many spots to put us in. However, they put us on one of the few unlevel spots. We don't know how it happened, but our TT fell off the blocks as we were setting up. The owner was nice enough to hitch our trailer to his tractor and move us to a level site (he even said he didn't know why he put us there with so many open). After that it was a great stay. Sites are large, people are friendly. Only knock on my "new" site was that the sewer was slightly higher than my sewer exit. We made it work however. Odd that you pay $5 for a bathroom key (you get it back at the end of your stay). If you can do without sewer I highly recommend the "W" loop. Those sites are large, wooded and private. I would camp here again. - theheils

If you are looking for a safe, quiet place to sleep while going from east-to-west NY this will do. Fulton is near the top of central NY so does not get much rv traffic. This is a city park. Hit it in dry season so everything looked dead. Warnings everywhere not to swim in the lake or allow animals anywhere near the water. Permanent problem with blue algae, which can cause ALS. Most of campers appeared to be lower income, permanent residents. However everyone was plenty friendly and staff was helpful. Probably least appealing campground we have used, but decent enough. Fulton is on the Erie Canal, has interesting history. - Mike from Bama

Friendly park in a quiet area conveniently close to town. Lake is not swim-able but has excellent fishing and boating. Entrance road is paved and campground roads are gravel. Grassy, treed, large, easy access sites with smaller sites on the waterfront. Several docks for fishing and boating with a large concrete boat ramp next to a large parking lot with plenty of room for boat trailers. Has a wooded path leading to State Route 3 for walking/biking access to a mini-golf course, the YMCA and several restaurants. - Appleknocker

The waterfront sites have an absolutely lovely view but the park is generally unattractive. I'd love to find a park with that view but modern and attractive and I'd be happy to pay 50% more. We did not stay overnight and used none of the facilities but drove through the park to see if it would be a nice place to stay. I don't think I would want to stay here. - UllaPool

A small park which is mostly seasonals. Not many transients sites. Not recommended for children as there is a 50 foot cliff with no barricade or fence to keep you from falling off. Very dangerous. The view of Lake Ontario is great. Restrooms are old and need updating, but were clean. Concrete sites are level and the full hookups worked well. Sites are very tight. The nearby town of Sodus Point is quaint with 800 residents. Not much to do there. The Wi-Fi mostly worked OK. Would not stay here again. - sleeper987

A delightful small campground right on Lake Ontario. Very friendly seasonal occupants. Convenient to towns and shops, groceries. Laundromat nearby in Sodus. Plenty to do - Erie Canal cruises and boat rental, historic museums. Right in the middle of apple country. Would highly recommend if you are in the area. - pegbud

We booked online and the check in gate had no idea who we were. They asked for payment, but they took my husband's word that we were already paid up (I had the email to prove, but they trusted that). Our site was on dead grass, unlevel and full of mosquitoes. We didn't even get a picnic table, thankfully we had a folding Rubbermaid table with us.
Bathrooms were gross. The park itself looked like a rundown trailer park. The playground was very dated and some of the items didn't look safe.
The only redeeming part of the park is that it's close to the highway. Pool was "closed" for the night, although people continued to use it. - Jennylou

We went in with a group of 11 units 9/10 thru 9/13 on site 166. The electric was so bad my meter was at 60 volts or less , had to run ref. an water heater on gas. The permanent campers very noisy. We did have a problem with bees in the pavilion which the park personnel had taken care of. We have not camped there in 10 years and had the same electric problems then. Will not return to this park or recommend this park. - John Eldredge

Despite the large number of seasonal campers, this entire campground needs some love in my opinion. As other reviews say, the roads are rough, the bathrooms and restrooms need a make over and sites are just out in the open, for weekenders, from what I saw. At least my site was level. The campground was noisy most nights but one night very loud music was going until after 2 AM. I and the person in the next site complained and while management "apologized" for the noise, the loud campers seemed to know exactly who complained and were obnoxious about it. Besides the noise I saw an unusual amount inconsiderate behavior like cleaning fish on the picnic tables that belong to other sites. To me that and the general condition tell me that management does not run a very tight ship. When we go back to the area, we will look for a different campground. - Bandguy

We paid extra for 50 amp service then got billed another $3 a night for A/C. $39 a night was overpriced especially for not getting full hookups. The sites were roomy enough and electric and water hookups worked fine (no sewer hookup). The park ran a hay ride for the kids and had a chicken BBQ one night. It was not easy on, easy off from the interstate. Several low hanging branches needed trimming and potholes on the long drive in needed filling. The dumpster was quite a walk to get to. - Melodycthomas

Nice spot. Grass sites look great but could get muddy. Long wide 5th wheels could have problems with access road unless they know how to drive. Dump site in main exit. - Mcewena

After 10 years of motorhome life, hundreds of campgrounds, this was the worst. The entrance road is a long, dusty, bumpy road, barely enough room for a motorhome. We were assured when we called they had 50 amp and level sites. They charged $3 for A/C which we have never had to pay. After finally getting to our site, the site was unlevel and the electric was terrible. We plugged in and it appeared that 4 sites were tied into the same line. As soon as anything was turned on, the voltage went well below 104, we had to turn the frig and hot water on propane and then couldn't run the A/C. Anytime anyone went down the road in front of the motorhome, we were pelted with huge clouds of dust. It appeared that they hurriedly put in a few sites and then called them "big rig" sites. The majority of the campers appeared to be seasonal, in smaller, older trailers. Would never recommend this campground, even for an overnight. - haroldmill

Out of the way, but easy to get to. Park was well maintained. Many seasonals, but they were well kept. Main problem was that sites were very un-level. We first went to a 50 amp (they only had a couple) and it had a terrible slope to the back. We couldn't begin to get level. Then we moved to a 30 amp. Those sites were in the middle of a circle of seasonals. Just a small field. Not bad, but again we couldn't get level. Not as bad as the first site, so we just made do. - DYK 640

I was a bit hesitant to stay, since the reviews are mixed, but we took a chance seeing as how even the most recent review was 3 yrs. old. We were pleasantly surprised, overall. Unlike so many other places we have been everything is very spread out. The sites were very large, nice & flat, and after about noon were shaded. The pool was in very good condition. And it has a bar! For me this was big draw; being able to go for a swim, and walk into the adjacent building & have a cold beer. On tap. A craft brew IPA no less, and only $3.75. We found all of the seasonal people to be friendly as well. WiFi stunk but we have yet to find a park with even adequate WiFi. Overall we just really enjoyed the weekend. - Joe & Penny

We stopped at this park because it was listed in Passport America. It was not the easiest park to get to, but we wanted something that was not directly on the Interstate. When we arrived there, the first thing the woman behind the desk told us was how bad this year had been for them, and how much the recent rains had damaged, or made unusable, some of the sites in the campground. When we told her we were members of Passport America, she informed us that the sites reserved for Passport America members were among those flooded, and she refused to give us the discount! The site assigned to us was next to several sites that were occupied by old trailers that were in such poor shape they looked to be abandoned. In addition, the park roads were dirt and only one lane, making it tricky to back into the site assigned to us. This park did not make us feel welcomed, and we would not recommend it. - seabreezeblk
