**BEWARE **UNTRUSTWORTHY OWNER , Victor the owner screwed us over on 4th of July weekend. We made reservations for 3 days back in December ( The minimum) even though we only needed Sunday. Called ahead Friday told them we wont be arriving until Sunday and to please hold our spot, we were paying for all 3 days. Arrived Sunday with the Travel Trailer and 700$ concert tickets to CMAC and Victor gave our spot away, told us sorry nothing he can do, they were booked. He claimed that we said we would arrive Saturday and thats what the note in the system said. Funny That they wouldn't even contact us to confirm before giving our spot away. Refused to give a refund or even attempt to help us out. He acted like he wanted nothing to do with us. Try finding a campground with an open site on 4th of July weekend. Ended up driving all the way home to park camper and drive all the way back to the concert. Victor, the owner of Canandaigua campground was completely rude, unsympathetic to the situation, avoid this place. - Jon_camper

This is a typical KOA park. Very neat and clean with lots of activities especially for children. The park was very quiet especially at night. The wifi worked well most of the time. My only issue with this park is the cost. Our site was a back in with electrical service only and it was $47 per night which I found excessive but since we were visiting friends in the park we paid the price. Other than the price this is a very nice park. I doubt we would stay here again. - RayN

We traveled to this KOA as we recently purchased our very first RV and wanted to stay close to home to try out all the features and ensure everything work appropriately. We traveled in their off season, so some amenities were not available, but we knew that. They did allow us to play mini golf at no charge and we came to LOVE Shuffleboard. Upon arrival, we were greeted by a very welcoming host who immediately told us about the KOA and the upcoming weather issues. His son then showed us to our spot and offered to assist us with our set up since it was our first trip; however, we did want to do it alone as we were still learning. The weather was much more cooperative on Saturday, so we were able to explore the campground more and enjoy some of its features. Sunday was an even better weather day and the hosts graciously allowed us a later check out time to enjoy the grounds and sunshine. We reserved a pull through site with full hookups and all of our specifications were met; however, our one complaint would be that the electrical and water for our site were on the opposite side than our RV, so we were struggling to ensure our hoses and hookups were long enough, as well as find ways to pass them under the RV, which proved a little challenging. Additionally, the hookups were right in the middle of our "free space" and under our awning space, so a bit of a safety/trip hazard. The family who ran the KOA was very friendly and very helpful and we would definitely stay there again ... - sizzle

Park is 3 years old and still needs a lot of work. Nice landscaping at camp office/store but not much done in rest of campground. Good location on Erie Canal but no access from campground and brush has grown up blocking the view. Pull thru sites are in a field with saplings that will eventually provide shade. Sites are FHU, sloping gravel amidst mowed weeds. May become a "resort" in future but is currently overpriced. - Appleknocker

Still in their infancy as a park they are building on a foundation. Park is on a hill and most sites are not level. We had about a 4" drop front to rear on site 80. They had a bluegrass festival Saturday afternoon/eve but we were there visiting family and weren't around for it. Check in was friendly and owner allowed us to take an open pull thru instead of the back in we'd reserved at no extra charge. They were very friendly and accommodating. Some turns were a little tight in a 41' DP. - HomeOnWheels_US

Great family oriented campground. The swimming pool. unheated, is very clean and designed for children as the maximum depth is 4'11". An extensive play ground is adjacent to the pool as well as a game room. - Dick Mack

Great park. Spacious sites with no one near by. All hook ups were working properly. The park is mostly seasonal campers who were all very friendly. They did however have a long list of rules some of which were highlighted but since we didn't break any it wasn't a problem. - Wavelength 99

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

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

The Good: The staff was excellent. They made every effort to accommodate having sites next to each other. I really appreciate their kindness. They have the Canandaigua outlet running through the edge of the campground. It was running fast and full due to all the rain, but something nice to look at. Close the the finger lakes and all that there is to do down there. The not so good: Very tight sites. I could also hear the thruway at night. - RSposato

We had a great time. Lots of activities for the kids. Fishing, play ground, fire truck rides, clean. - Rouset224

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

This is one of the nicest parks we have ever stayed in. We had a pull thru site that was plenty long enough for the RV and the tow vehicle. We were in a 45' motor home. The roads are a bit tight but wide enough to get around . The only problem we encounter is it rained very hard the night we were there and leaving the lot requires a bit of up hill and there is not really room to get that big of an RV out of the lot without going across the grass and it being quite wet the wheels spun and we had to unhook from our tow vehicle and back out of the lot which was not a problem. I would return here to this lot again anytime as it is a wonderful site but I would just plan on backing out no matter if it was dry or not as it is a very tight way to pull out and backing out is no problem at all. - hpykmpr47

Paved roads with gravel/grass sites. Lots of trees so no satellite. It is mainly seasonal. Very clean and staff very helpful. Stayed overnight. - Rubberfoundation

Nice camp, but this park is not big rig friendly. Site so uneven and not level was not able to level. Windshield shattered trying to level. Had to wait a week to get new windshield installed. The park's hookups are set up for trailers or 5th wheels not 40 foot motorhomes. When I confronted the owner about uneven sites and motorhomes should not be put on this uneven sites of grass his response was "Well never had a problem before and most RVs only level side to side not front to back." I guess he did not consider a motorhome a RV? - Casy

Park has very rude owners! The State needs to inspect these bathrooms: no hand towels or soap dispensers. Dirty bathrooms with spiders. - Muffincat

Dumpy. Small cinder block bathroom. Showers 3 no fan hot and sweaty. All of the swings and playground stuff was made of 2x4, 2x6 or 2 in pipe. Appeared to have been made in their garage. Tent sites had grass but poor drainage. I will admit there had been 11 days of rain prior to my stay. Game room cheap. Poorly marked entrance on main road. The largest green area in the place was the leech field. No close by food or stores. - 321

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

Beautiful quiet site within easy reach of the Finger Lakes region. Mostly seasonals but we were able to pick our site from several available for short-term stopovers. Sites were well placed so not on top of each other. Dump station on site. We don't have kids but it looked like there was plenty to keep families occupied. Be aware, they don't accept credit or debit cards so I had to pay cash, which in this day & age is very unusual. A word of warning when I booked would have been helpful. - Chris_m

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

Way over priced for water/electric only. Sites carved out of dense forest, not level and utilities (especially water) placed in awkward places (bring long connections.) A big rig would have trouble getting into the sites around the oval - the few along the entry road would be much easier. I actually left a day early, would not return. - ldukeb

Always enjoy our stays here. Most sites offer some shade and privacy, big rig sites on the entrance road not as much. Electric at all sites (30a or 30/50a depending on which one), water spigots also very convenient. Late checkout time compared to some parks which is a bonus! - TCNG

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

The site was okay except that we had to share our faucet and pedestal with another RV and mine was on the wrong side. The park was crowded but manageable. We would not stay here again. - HaveDieselWillTravel

We were first directed to a space that had just been vacated by a seasonal renter. The Park obviously did not check the site as the sewer connection was broken and the power had a bad ground, shocking my wife when she touched the water pipe. Once we were moved to a better space, all was well. Nice staff. Good price.
The Harbor isn't much to speak of, as it was surrounded by long term renters, and well-weeded. Restrooms were spartan but functional. The area doesn't drain well when it rains, which it did. Walking to the restroom was a shoe-soaker. - Kvw613

This is a nice park right on the river but only seasonals have the waterfront sites; over-nighters have a choice of pull-thru spaces with water and electric OR easy back-in sites with full hookups. The park has both shady and sunny sites, some more level than others, and most with plenty of space in between. Large trees and green grass make it very pleasant. There are rigs of all sizes here. Wifi was strong (the manager said they just boosted the signal) and Verizon at full strength. We were at the park for two days/two nights and had no complaints at all. Staff (Mathew) was friendly and helpful. There is a nice walking path down to the river's edge and all kinds of "person-powered" water craft to rent. Seneca Falls and the drive around the finger lakes is quite nice. - alm
