This is not your usual KOA. Much better. The park has trails, wooded area for walking dog (plus dog park), tent camping, a tree house cabin, zip line, fishing pond and the usual stuff. This is our second stay here because of its location. Much improved from 3 years ago. We would stay here again if in the area. The owner is a bit of a "scold", but justly proud of his park. - 1coloradan

Used koa discount. Big rig friendly with level sites. The sites were well spread out and neighbors were not a problem. The dog park was small but adequate for walking a dog. The amenities were not open yet for the season. The park was great for bike riding. No cable but several TV channels with our antenna. WiFi was good. - Fulltimersrv

Long level pull-thru site that was reasonably level. All services worked well. Easy in and out. Busy weekend and lots of activities for kids. Well maintained grounds. Would stay again. - cdude

The other reviews are correct about how new and nice this place will be "someday" but in my opinion not now. We stayed here for an overnight and the park was nearly empty. The reason became clear fairly soon: trains. Lots of them and they are close by with horns blasting at least one an hour sometimes more ALL NIGHT! It gets better! Early morning an hour before sunrise the gunfire starts. Lots of it - automatic weapons, rifle shots, shotguns and it is close. Real close. We cleaned up and left before some nut put a dozen holes in us and our rig. - Whack-A-Mole Wheels

I was really looking forward to staying in this new park because of the great location and good reviews. There are some very nice things about it, but it didn't live up to all my expectations as a traveler. This could be a better place for seasonals than those traveling through.
The good: Beautiful land on a ridge above the Erie Canal. Most spaces are open, but there are two shaded roads. One road overlooks the canal. We were fortunate to get a shaded site even though we stayed just four days. Most of the sites with big trees are for seasonals. The staff is very friendly, but a little hard to find. Follow the directions on the office doors if no one's there. We did not use the bathrooms, but we did use the laundry which was quite nice. I got some help from a busy worker in the laundry. She took the time to drive me to the office to get change for the machines.
The bad: I think the owners took on a little too much with this project. They cleared and graded many acres of land, but have not been able to finish it all. Some roads were unfinished and piles of building materials were lying around. Not too safe for kids. The campsites were not well tended. Our grass was very long and the campfire had bottles and trash in it. In our four days of hot weather, the grass was not mowed in our campsite. People were working hard at getting the pool house painted, but nobody seemed willing to do a little housecleaning on our street or cleaning out the campsites after renters leave.
Placed here and there around the welcome area were lots of oddball salvaged items in various states of disrepair. Some things from the pool were just piled up and stored on the office porch. The owner must like salvage, but to others it's junk.
The trains didn't bother us, but they were loud.
I will stay at Twilight again because it's beautiful, close to our family, and the people are friendly. I just hope they can clean it up a little. - User2152

As previously stated, 2015 was the opening year for this park. There are still some finishing touches to be done, i.e. the pool is not finished, and the sites' gravel pads are to be widened and re-leveled in the fall. The owners aim to please and are very enthusiastic about their park. Many of the sites are taken by seasonal people, with weekends being the busiest. The setting is very rural, but retail stores for just about anything are within 10-15 minutes away. It is very quiet there. The utilities work well, including the wi-fi. The sites are nice and wide, too, so you don't feel as if you are on top of your neighbor. We will definitely return next year as we have family in the area and this park is the best one for more than a weekend stay. - dbcordello

I echo the previous reviewer's sentiment. It is a very pretty park, with good sites. It is a very uptight park, with the owner threatening to toss you out if you break a rule - mostly quiet and catering to seasonals. There are kids but few relative to other parks, so again, great if you like peace and quiet. If you enjoy cycling, this is not the ideal park because the roads are gravel and the road into the park is extremely hilly - I wound up driving to bottom of hill and starting my ride from there. - klinner

This is the most uptight RV park. We were staying there for a family reunion but probably would not stay again. The park itself is nice, sites are well laid out. It is expensive for no WIFI at the site and paid showers. Wifi only available in the office. Staff was rude, rude to our guests and we were made to feel very unwelcome. - The Sandbox

Great lot and the area was very quiet. No lights in the bathrooms at the pool but didn't use the cement building on the other side of the campgrounds. 1st day we had several inches of rain and the site was very wet, can't control mother nature. If you have a small truck and large rig the hill to the campground is a killer. - Kim Hood

We had delayed booking a campsite for the weekend of July 4 and were finding that all campgrounds were full, until we found this one, Ontario County Park at Gannett Hill, via AllStays. We called and they had sites available. We told them that we had a big (43') heavy (50K pounds) rig and they said they could accommodate us. There was not even an entry on RV Park Reviews at that time, so we were a little concerned, but beggars can't be choosers!
When we showed up, the ranger at the entry station told us to go on to our site and he would come by to collect the fee later. Other campers watched as we negotiated our big rig into the site, but, sure enough, it fit!
The sites are very nice, though with only electric hookup, and the electric box is shared between two sites (which are a good distance away from each other) - so we needed an extension cord to reach the electric box. Our specific site (24) was not very level and we were not able to get the bus level, but it was close enough for a couple of nights (we have a residential instead of gas absorption refrigerator). Other sites appeared to be more level (sites in the area of 11-17 looked more level).
The campground is a hidden gem - folks in the area nearby use it, but it does not appear to be heavily used by anyone from a distance. There were nice hiking trails available, and lots of open space for kids to play. Sites 1-4 back up to the trees and are quite shady, particularly in the morning. The campground is at about 2000', so it was about 10 degrees cooler than, say, Canandaigua. - pattic777

Stayed here for three nights this October and September 2014. The place is clean, quiet, and perfectly placed for exploring the Finger Lakes. We had 30 amp, water and sewer. We will return next year. - retcpa

Sites are a nice size, not crowded together. Bathrooms clean. Pool area is nice, but there are no chairs. Plenty of open space to walk your dog. Enjoy going there. - blackhillsmom

I would not recommend this campground except for an overnight if you have no options. Basically, "cheap" and "greedy" show itself in the camp's ownership and management. Camping here is essentially field camping with site numbers and posts for organization. The 8.5 bathroom rating should be a 4.0. Only one litter/trash can in the park is at the office. A locked can with a hole in the top is labeled "RETURNABLE CANS AND BOTTLES ONLY". We reserved for electric and water, but the electric turned out to be 20 amp with AC not allowed and the breaker was not located on the post. No 50 amp service. Although the campground map shows two 50 amp sites, they are occupied by the camp's workkampers. And lastly, they charge guest fees of $5 Adults and $3 kids. An employee is at the entrance in a golf cart to make sure this easy money is collected. I asked about this and the employee said that the State of NY requires it (I do not believe this answer). - pop_and_jojo

This campground has mostly seasonal sites. It's well-maintained, clean, and has lots of amenities. We stayed here twice, to and from our final destination in our 39' fifth wheel. The pull-through site was level and generously sized. The roads are paved but a bit narrow. The park is conveniently located near I-90. You will hear road noise, but it was fine for a one night stay. - FifthWheel Travelers

First, do not use your GPS as you will be directed to the other side of I-90 and will end up on narrow farm country roads going in a circle. It is a very neat & clean campground populated by seasonal campers. This is the northern version of what you would find at campgrounds in FL. for the snowbirds, tennis, bocce, shuffleboard, pool etc.. Lots of room to walk your dog. Downtown Phelps is a short drive away and if you have the time take a drive in to see the beautiful historic town. We have a 35' motorhome and some turns may be a little tight so prior to departure walk your route. What struck as strange is a section of the exit road is between 2 pull thru sites and a tight turn just beyond. I do not think we would have made the turn with the car attached if the site to the right was occupied. We drove through that site to make the turn. While the WIFI connection was good it annoys me that you are allowed only 1 hour on 1 device. For the money spent on a night there should not be a limit. I put 1 as our site since I did not retain the paperwork. The short term camp sites are in the middle grassy area. - petpeople

This is a real nice park that is 90% seasonal campers. There is a circular area that is open for transients and some other scattered sites among the seasonal campers. Real busy on weekends with lots of family oriented activities. Bathrooms and laundry are good, but be aware that their Wi-Fi isn't free. You get one hour free per stay, for only one device, or you can pay for it by the day. We used our Verizon hotspot and it worked great with a 4G signal. Park is 45 minutes from Rochester and close to the north end of Seneca Lake which is terrific for wine lovers. Lots of wineries within a few minutes of the park. The rating is due to them charging for the Wi-Fi. We would stay here again. Rate shown is based on a weekly rate. - TX Camper

Crowded, unkempt, dirty, poorly maintained. Surly owners. Pool not open on major summer holiday weekend. Small sites, unsuitable for most modern motorhomes. Due to unsatisfactory conditions and extremely poor treatment by owners, did not stay and will never go back. - GoinCampin

We stayed here in a 38 ft. fifth wheel for about 6 nights. The campground is well tucked away making it a little hard to find, but that is also a huge bonue is you want quiet solitude. The setting is wonderful, with a large stocked fishing pond and lots of grass. Our site was one of about 15 dedicated to mostly short term stays, many of the other spaces are seasonal people. We found that the park is nicely situated for one wanting to visit the finger lakes area and the owner gave us all kinds of tips on local spots to visit. Looking forward to a return visit. - kltfaught

This is the third time we have been to this park. This is a nice quite, family friendly park but it is old. The restroom/shower house is old but clean.
The pricing has changed since our last visit. It is now based on how you camp; tenting ($35.00), camper 25 ft long or less ($40.00), and more than 25 ft $50.00. I would have given a higher value rating but the price is pretty high for such an old park.
You can now reserve online at https://www.monroecounty.gov/mcparks/reserve/camp.
If you plan to cook outside, some sites have pedestal grills, some fire pit grills, some both, and at least one (site 34) has no usable grill, a tree has grown up around it. A lot of the grills are not level and may cause you a problem with cooking. Every site does have a fire ring.
With all that being said, it is a very nice campground. The staff is friendly and it is convenient for us with children and grand-children close by. We will camp here again. - dmoore1108

This is a small county campground and hidden gem on the north east side of Monroe County near Rochester NY. Its about as big as one loop in other campgrounds and since its a county park, there is very little in the way of amenities. Big rigs park in the open overflow area and smaller campers and tents bunk on the loop. The loop has small, private sites with well established foliage. The park is on the edge of Webster park and right on Lake Ontario. We always love our time here. - Lindalew

We were here last year and came back due to family in the area. This is an awesome county park with beautiful trees, hills and hiking trails. This year the Verizon signal was strong enough to give us phone and internet service. It was a little muddy because they have had lots of rain. We were in the "Only Motor homes and large 5th Wheels" sites near the entrance to the campground. No sewer hookups means it is a short visit for us, but we will be back. People who work here are very nice, and at $25/night it is a good value. - dbcordello

This campground is located between Seneca Lake and Cayuga Lake, near the towns of Waterloo, Seneca Falls and Geneva. Driveways and site pads are gravel. We had a back-in site with full hookups, 50 amp electric. It was a nice site with a large mature tree on each side providing shade early and late in the day. They offer free WiFi but it did not reach our site. When we used it while adjacent to their office it worked well. There is a nice laundry and a bathhouse. The first two days we were there, the bathhouse was very dirty. Apparently, the manager had been away so when he returned it was kept more clean. They also rent kayaks on-site which you can put into the water right from the campground. We paid $255 for a week. AT&T 4G signal strength was -106 dBm, average. - Coopsecondact

A cute park good for a few days. The sites are tight as are the roads to get to the camp sites. They do advertize wifi camp wide but we could not connect and we were close to the main office. The over the air channels were spotty at best. We do not fish or kayak so there was not much to do in the campground. They do have access to the canal so boaters would like this park. Our site was quite slopped and a little difficult to get level. We did notice a strong odor from the water supply. It looked like they had just replaced the water lines to the site we had. Do not know if that might be causing the odor or not.
We would probably stay again if in the area. - John Borajkiewicz

This is a nice campground located along the northern Finger Lakes canal system. The pull thru site we were assigned was a long and reasonably level gravel pad. The pull thru sites are alternated so your door side faces your neighbor's door side. They did not have sewer but water pressure was good and electric was stable. The grounds around the camping area are park-like, fun to explore and you can swim off the dock along the canal. We would stay here again. - Born2Roam
