Called for a reservation and they said they had two sites left, electric only 30A , and the girl said she thought it might be a pull through. Arrived and the spot turned out to be next to the gazebo and in the middle of the parks playground on very uneven grass field. The electric was on the post of the gazebo and I just had enough cord to reach. Right in the middle of screaming kids throwing balls around... or jumping on the inflatable "pillow jump" 40 feet away. I would have been better at a Walmart. Honesty is apparently missing from the values of the workers here. If they told me where they were putting me, I would have declined. The man parking me was very rude and condescending. I will not return. We camped at Canandaigua / Rochester KOA in a Motorhome.

KOA canandaigua rochester, owner at Canandaigua / Rochester KOA responded to this review

BigKat, I'd like to apologize for any confusion there may have been with your stay here. That being said I'm not exactly sure how there was any misconception on the type of site you were offered as you were told this is an overflow site with electric hookup only. I can assure you we are always honest with our customers. We keeps these sites open as a last resort option if someone really needs a place to stay for the evening. August is an extremely busy month for us here and this was most likely the only option we had for you. We have many other types of big rig, patio, pull through, water/electric/sewer etc. sites that have earned us many good reviews. Happy Kamping.

Our granddaughter had an amazing time playing on their very nice playground, swimming in their clean outdoor pool and jumping on their big jumping pillow. The park is clean, quiet and even the dogs were well mannered and quiet. There is a nice dog park though I didn't see it get used. We will definitely be going back again. Staff was courteous and quick to attend to any needs. Park was less than half hour ride to Seabreeze. We absolutely LOVED that most of the lots had adult shade trees that you could sit under. We camped at Canandaigua / Rochester KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Great pizza shop called Dario's less than 3 miles from camp. Gas station the same. Major grocery store within a 10 minute trip. Corn fields across from campgrounds and a stocked fishing pond the kids can use. Try it, you'll love it.

Close to the highway, stayed here on our way from Massachusetts to Illinois. Friendly staff. Has ice cream night while we were there. I dripped my cone in the dirt as soon as I purchased it and they gave me another one for no charge. Clean bathrooms, pool was OK. Very small park. Dog park was small but in the shade and had a few things for the dog to run through etc. Jumping pillow was misshapen and not that bouncy. Park was small. We camped at Canandaigua / Rochester KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Really enjoyed our stay here. All services serving the FHU site worked as they should. We were on the street side of the park with the back to back type of power pedestal. Bring your extension cords and hoses. Some traffic noise, but not constant. WiFi was good, although it would really slow down during mornings and evenings. ATT and Verizon voice and data were very good. You could make calls from inside the TT rather than have to go outside. Staff support was excellent. The seasonable sites are well maintained. There is a lot to do on the weekends for both adults and kids. The Kafe is open Friday supper to Sunday breakfast. Meals are fresh cooked after you order. The 4 washers and dryers are $1.50 each. We were told that the owner has made a lot of improvements to the campground and it shows. We camped at Canandaigua / Rochester KOA in a Travel Trailer.

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.

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.

Canandaigua is a pretty town for walking along the lake and walking the town. Letchworth Park, Fairport, and Rochester are all great places to visit and all close by. Grocery store was 10 minutes. Eastside Mall was 30 minutes in Rochester and good shopping. Very motorcycle friendly.

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. We camped at Canandaigua / Rochester KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We had one of the premium sites and it was super! Much wider than normal sites at KOAs or other private parks. Gravel site was almost perfectly level. A few trees, but satellite TV access was easy to get. There is an extra charge for 50A. Verizon service was quite good. The only unusual aspect of our site was that the water and electric hookups were on the wrong side of the MH (sewer was on the driver's side as usual). I think the premium sites were "repurposed" from regular ones and this resulted from that. It wasn't a big deal to run the electric cable and hose under the back of the MH. We camped at Canandaigua / Rochester KOA in a Motorhome.

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.
