We stayed here over a weekend and really enjoyed this park as it had a lot to offer, especially for the kids. Our dog loved the leash free area and we all enjoyed the adjacent field for football & baseball. The sites were small (most KOAs are) but offered just enough room from your neighbor. The campground itself is clean and well maintained as are bathrooms. The staff and owners are incredibly nice and go out of their way to make everyone feel welcome. Definitely one of the best KOAs I've been to. Apparently others think so too as the campground was near capacity. We camped at Canandaigua / Rochester KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Really great people. Nice sites with lots of choices. Plenty to do for the kids. Hard to get into for the summer but they try to make it work for you. Good facilities, Verizon works great, local channels are pretty good no cable. Perfect area if you want to go to the racetrack. Close to the lake and great farmland and stands. Wine country of course is why a large number of people who comes here. Nice group that stays during the summer. Easy in and out lots of good walking/biking and playing. Incredible jumping canvas for the kids. Don't know how to explain it but I enjoyed it - good exercise. I joined KOA discount club for the first time and 1 week stay there paid for itself. We camped at Canandaigua / Rochester KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Campground is neatly kept, with the exception of the garbage bins, which were overflowing. The lake needs to be cleaned up; it is full of algae. There are lots of activities for kids, some are free, some not. Our rate reflects a KOA discount and only 2 adults. Our son and family of four paid $50 for a tent site, which we found expensive. We also had to pay $5 each for two adults to join us for dinner one night at our site, something I have a problem with. There should be some way to differentiate between guests who are going to use the amenities and those who are simply visiting an RV site. The sewer, water and electric hookups all worked well, as did the Internet. The sites are a little close, but we did have some nice grassy areas and trees nearby. We came here due to its proximity to Rochester where we have family. We may try another campground next year. We camped at Canandaigua / Rochester KOA in a Motorhome.

Busy weekend, lots of kids around. Some areas close in to each other but in the pull-through sites there is more space around you. Lots of fun items for kids to do (we are retired but enjoy seeing the kids play). We camped at Canandaigua / Rochester KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed here over the Labor day weekend for 6 days. Staff was nice and friendly and aware of trouble with 50 amp service at our pull though site #73 when arrived and fixed with new circuit breaker, very clean and well kept. Everyone was friendly including the seasonal people. Lots of kids here over the holiday weekend and they had many activities for them. Though not large by any means, it is big enough with walking trails in the woods, fishing pond were they had a contest for largest fish caught (catch and release), fenced dog area, nice patio area on the big rig sites. Downtown Canandaigua is less than 10 miles and has a nice park at the north end of the lake. Will return when in the area. We camped at Canandaigua / Rochester KOA in a Motorhome.

This was our second time staying here. Both were just overnighters. Stayed in site #76 in 2012 & #73 in 2013. Improved the sites dramatically but in doing so, they nickel and dime you on everything. Each Kid: $5/kid/day. 50 amp: $4/day. Big Rig/patio: $5 per day. So our $37.00 turned into $51.00. The patio sites are nice, fairly level. Again, didn't get to use anything because it was their opening season. Just opened the pool so you had to wait due to excess chemicals. No internet because they were updating. As a business owner, I would have done the updating PRIOR to opening weekend. Jumping pillow was deflated. The store was adequately supplied with everything one might need. For a $10 donation to Camp Care, you can get a bottle of local wine. Tempting but anytime you have to change or cancel a reservation, you are charged $10. Don't get me wrong. Not complaining, just getting tired of the $1 here and the $5 here and: "Since you have a big rig, we put you in a big rig site and that includes a patio, but we won't tell you that it's an additional fee." They were very pleasant as they swiped your card though. Above, it automatically said YES to waterfront sites. The only water here is a "Critter Pond" with a possible stream that flows above and below it. Some sites were on the pond, the cabins and the w/e sites. This KOA was no different than others. The roads are gravel. There appeared to be seasonal campers also and the "BIG RIGS" had to make the turn to get into #76-#71 just right. Did I mention that we are both experienced "BIG RIG" operators? Saying this, we would have had difficulty had the "seasonals" had their vehicles parked along the road. On their map it reads, "OVERFLOW PARKING". Again, let me stress, that they were friendly. We camped at Canandaigua / Rochester KOA in a Motorhome.

Great location to visit Palmyra or Rochester. Staff was very friendly and helpful. They even lent us a 50 amp extension cord when the site they gave us was too far from power. We would have stayed longer but they were completely full. We camped at Canandaigua / Rochester KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

My pull through site was flat and level. It was composed of crushed rock. The site was barely 52 feet long. To keep my trailer and truck in the site, I needed 30 feet of fresh water hose to reach my trailer. I had to back my trailer in at an angle after disconnecting so I could stay off the road. The site had a picnic table and fire pit. Good access roads. The free Wi-Fi was excellent. No cable. The over air TV was strange. T.V. signal kept cutting out every three or 4 minutes for 5-10 seconds at a time. The office staff said they had never heard of this problem.

We were only here for a stop over and it is good for that. Full hook-ups, sites were kind of level but could be better. Gravel and grass for the pull-through sites that we were on. However we were so close to the person next to us we would have reached out and touched their RV. Electric and water were good, and the Wi-Fi worked well from the site we were on. We would stay here again. We camped at Canandaigua / Rochester KOA in a Motorhome.

This is an extremely well kept, family friendly campground. There are cement patios with Adirondack gliders for the big rigs, which have recently been added. There is a lot to keep the family busy: catch and release fishing pond, gaming room, zip line, bouncy pad, playground, tree house, hiking and biking trails. Clean heated pool. For $3 there is miniature golf and you can rent bicycles, although they were expensive. Very pet friendly and has a nice large area with some agility equipment for pets to roam free. Staff is extremely helpful and friendly. They even remembered us from the year before. We will definitely stay here again. We camped at Canandaigua / Rochester KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed at the Canandaigua / Rochester KOA for 2 nights on our continuing vacation journey as a stopover. The park is a nice clean family oriented park that is very welcoming to the traveler. The children loved the playground and spent most of their time playing there during the visit. The campground also offers a heated pool that looked very nice, but we did not use it. The campground is a short 20 minute drive from downtown Rochester and is very close to many shopping amenities. The washrooms and showers were very clean and the staff were very helpful and friendly. They did not offer many family activities during the week, but the weekend events looked fun. The sites are quite narrow and crammed together, but were more than long enough to park our truck and trailer for a few days. If you want space to move around on your site, this campground does not offer really wide sites. Overall, I would recommend this KOA as a spot for both short or long stays. It is very clean and well kept. For travelers traveling during the week it would be great to have some family activities added to their schedule. We camped at Canandaigua / Rochester KOA in a Tent Trailer.

My family and I have never been more disappointed in a KOA in our life. And when we voiced or disappointments to the owner, his response was, "You have your opinion and we have ours." Well thanks for understanding! They were very over priced on the activities and the lack of staff made the wait even longer for the kids. When I attempted to express our concerns, the owner became argumentative and kept interrupting me. Again they didn't didn't seem to care. We highly suggest you do not stay here, it is not family friendly!!! We camped at Canandaigua / Rochester KOA in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here twice and both times were in the Fall to visit family. The campground is well maintained, laundry room and bathrooms clean and staff friendly. WiFi was not consistent, but we were able to get it to work. I very HIGHLY recommend getting one of the premier sites, especially if you are in a big rig. The premier sites are large and pretty level. The other section of the campground is very cramped with small sites. Maneuvering a big rig through this area would be difficult. There is also an extra $4/day charge for 50amp service, which we were not made aware of at the time of the reservation. We camped at Canandaigua / Rochester KOA in a Motorhome.

We were misled about the rate, which is unusual for a KOA. It was an acceptable stay, but nothing to write home about. We probably won't come back. There are cheaper places just as convenient for us and nicer. Having been full-timing for three years, I would say this is not typical KOA service.

We arrived about 30 minutes before check-in time and were told to leave the property even though there were ample empty spaces. I asked the attendant if she could check to see if my site was available. She said that would cost me and extra $10 for her to check. I refused to pay and she told me to leave and come back in 20 minutes. This campground is on a 2 lane road. We had to drive several miles to find a safe spot to wait. When we returned , they put us in a spot in a field that was very wet and muddy. The person who escorted us to the "site" said to make sure I put down several boards under the levelers as they would sink into the mud. Overall a very bad experience.
