17 RV Parks near Fulton, New York
Aug 2016 - $21.00
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

A good solid park that is less than 5 miles from the Sterling Renaissance Fair and is never full. The price increased from last year with no noticeable improvements. I would still stay here while attending the Renaissance Fair, but it is becoming less attractive. Power worked well. - BounderPounder

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

I've read some of the other reviews, and while I agree with most of what they say, I can't make it seem like this place is a total sewage dump. The bugs were pretty bad on the back side (stayed across from the tent sites). But the place is surrounded by water, so pretty much expected. Lots of "seasonals", so good/bad, you decide. Showers were closed when I was there, but restrooms satisfactory. The sewage hookup did leave a bit to be desired, and you needed more than one person for it (one to run the plug and another to hold the darn PVC pipe in place). Beyond that, it wasn't THAT horrible. I'd stay there again, if for no other reason than location (I go to Liverpool, NY about once a month). - lyagooshka

We shared our water connection with 3 other campers so there was a "Y" connection on top of another connection. The electrical hookup was rusted with duct tape over one receptacle. But the worst part was the sewer hookup. It consisted of 15' of PVC pipe laying on the ground which offered little drainage and a terrible smell. The site was a mud hole. Never staying there again! - cooktr

Rate reflects monthly rate.
The Good...extensive shopping nearby, close to Syracuse, mature trees, nearby lake.
The Bad...Most sites filled with seasonal, many are traffic police. 5 mph speed limit is brutally enforced, even though nobody knows how fast you are actually driving, just "too fast". 2 useless stop signs on property. Don't roll through them. Quiet hours not enforced. Among experiences were drunken cabin people returning in wee hours arguing using f-bomb every other word. Not appropriate for family campground.
The Ugly- our site had a septic tank 10' from our front door and open sewer connection at ground level covered over by a rock 7' from our camper front door. Property flooded 3 times in the 5 weeks we were there. Septic tank became inoperative. Anyone using dump station 50' from our front door would force sewage water out of septic tank on our property onto the ground. Puddle was about 10' in diameter. Open sewer pipe was filled with solid waste. Owners pumped tank twice while we were there, but situation was not resolved. We left the next morning after discovering this. - dthurk

Arrival requires some planning and talk to owner before arrival if you have anything larger than a tent. Sign pointing to office is a dead end road. Do not turn in. I suggest parking on the road, putting your flashers on to get specific parking instructions. It is not a busy road, so you should be okay. - LarryJohnston

The owner and staff were helpful, nice and interested if your stay was okay. The campground is small, neat, and accommodating. It has cabins as well as full hook up RV sites. We were in site #5 and it was literally 60' from Lake Ontario. Just had to cross a small road to get to the Lake. We were in a motorhome and pulled, so we sat up front and looked out our huge windshield to enjoy all the sunsets and the ever-changing weather on the Lake.
The sites are gravel, but the park is grass, so while it had rained a lot, it has large puddles (to be expected). But the grass was so thick it really never became a problem. The bathroom had two very large, clean showers and two stalls. I think this may be a hidden gem only known to the locals who keep their RV here for the summer. All the "residents" kept their RVs clean and well maintained. Don't know if that is a condition to stay, but there wasn't one which was dirty.
The Wi-Fi was weak and the satellite didn't get many channels even with a scrambler that the office let you use at no charge. - oliver quibble

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

Used non electric site on bluff. Great view of Lake Ontario. Electric stores fairly dense. Mosquitoes bad evenings. - Falco

Nice very large park with the 20amp electric sites being the furthest from the beach and pond. If you enjoy fishing this is a great area with a long break wall between the lake and bay. Some of the electric box's are a good 20-30 feet from trailer so a extension cord is recommended. Limited parking on many site so it would be cramped with two autos. Hiking trails seem limited tho a nice playground for kids. Staff very helpful and restroom are clean. - Willburr

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

Mostly seasonal camps but adequate for the basics if you're passing through. Not a lot of sites available for short stays but they are very lenient with pets, children, etc. No organized rec, but the beach is nice (rocky on the shores of Lake Ontario). Prices moderate. If you want to camp and just be left "alone" this is a great place to visit. Unlike state parks you can get water and electric hookups here and septic service is available as well. Very nice small marina with excellent fishing. Camp store has only the basics, but the campground is only minutes from the grocery store. Sandy access roads but they are stable for RV driving and relatively easy to navigate. The oldest family owned campground in Oswego County. - FleisM

This was one of the first parks we have ever stayed in, and it was the best: friendly people and owner, easy in and out and very, very quiet. Not a lot for young kids to do, no activities. But very clean and a great place to stay: we will be back. - Chessie

We stayed here 2 nights. It is a quiet family oriented park that has quite a few long term campers. It has dirt/gravel interior roads and sites are mainly level. All sites are under tall trees and the park is on a hillside and hilltop with a lovely view of green, rolling hills and pastures. There is no cable TV but we pulled in 7 stations via antennae. There is no WiFi or internet modem available. On Saturday night the owners brought in entertainment and had a live oldies/rock band come in and play outdoors under a tent down near the office. A lot of residents went out, sat under the stars on picnic tables and folding chairs to listen. The band was extremely loud and annoying to those of us who didn't want to listen. The owners are super nice and overall the grounds are neat. Bathrooms are nice and neat and the shower stalls are unisex individual rooms that are separate from the toilet area. There aren't many restaurants in the area however we found outstanding pizza at a local pizza eatery that had a wonderful huge old fashioned pizza oven. They have no website that I have been able to locate. - Bookwormonwheels

Very clean with plenty of space. It is a long way from convenient stores, but is in a good location for fishing. About half of the sites are seasonal. - Chuck and Jane

Campground was nice, but muddy from the rain. But the campground hosts were totally "over the top" control freaks. With selective, uneven enforcement. One wheel on the grass, and they would harass you. Made the stay very uncomfortable. - edandck

This county park campground is less than a mile from exit 31 on I-81 and is convenient for us to visit friends and relatives in the Syracuse area. The park is located on the southwest shore of Oneida Lake and has an excellent boat ramp, children's playground, ball field, archery range, beach volley ball court and a swimming beach that rents kayaks and paddle boats. The park hosts several fishing tournaments and triathlons including the annual "Iron Girl."
The campground has 30 sites in the woods with no hookups and is occupied mainly by tenters. The 24 sites with water and electric are out in the open on a gravel circle with no privacy or shade. There is a restroom in the camping area but the showers are located about 300 yards away at the swimming area. The showers were clean with lots of hot water while we were here. We would stay again because of the convenient location. - Appleknocker

Campground is poorly designed if there was any design when it was built. It is essentially a swampy patch on the south shore of Oneida Lake in a county park. The camp roads are potholed gravel with gravel parking spots for RVs and are the only parts of the campground that aren't underwater during heavy rainstorms. The showers for campers only are located several hundred yards away at the public beach changing rooms. The beach itself was closed most of our two week stay because of blue/green algae and later due to E coli. The only redeeming features are the large boat launch area which draws a lot of fishermen, nearness to I-81 for overnighters and it's proximity to Syracuse. We would not stay here if it wasn't to visit friends and relatives in the Syracuse area. - Appleknocker

We stayed in the overflow area (loved it) on Labor Day Weekend 2016. We were very happy with our stay. It was very quiet and spacious.
Arcade/Game room was a nice addition, not alot of games but some and could use a little TLC. Showers/bathrooms could use some updating, brightening up, and minor repair and there's only one area of them. Bar/restaurant had a huge deck with a beautiful view (deck could use a little TLC) pool (right below deck)was clean and well maintained. variety of choices on the full food menu and both food and alcoholic drinks were reasonably priced. WIFI available. Friendly fellow and seasonal campers. There was entertainment and activities for both adults and kids. Bring your own wood. No issues with water, electric, or distance from pole. Didn't get a chance to find marina/fishing area. need better signage, especially for/in overflow area (site #, site size, direction sites face) a bit confusing. Off the beaten path but close to local roads/thruway. Will definitely go back with a group, and also recommend. This is no high end campground but is perfect for the average person/group. - Annette Meyers

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

Camp sites were not good. They are right on top of each other. hardly any room between our trailer and the tent neighbors we were next to. When we camp, we enjoy the quiet peacefulness of nature and the when you so close to your neighbor you can hear them fart in their tent it isn't enjoyable. Other issues were the nice wooded private sites had no electric and what sites did have it were only 20amp service. Most campers with trailer need 30 or more amps. The website has its site lengths wrong. We couldn't fix our unit in a site that was marked for 30 feet. Its was way less. Then we got into a small site size and can't have a camp fire because the pit is located in the front near the road and too close to our camper. This is disappointing because it's a beautiful state park with lots woods and trees. Bike trails well maintained and the beach was nice, although the rock on it were no fun to walk on. We are not talking little beach rocks, these are big and hard to walk on. They had nice shelters for use and we loved the water way/ creek that we kayak on. There is so much room at this park I can't believe improvements to the camp sites can't be made. The whole center part of our loop had empty space that could easily been made into sites. I won't camp here again unless I can go into one of those 6 wooded sites. And if it was bad enough, there was only 1 dump station/equipment/site. When everyone has to be out at the same time of 11am and only one camper can dump at time, there was a huge line to dump your waste. This is unexceptionable. The loop to the dump site was so small only 2 campers could fit into it, it was easy to turn into and no room for passing cars or other vehicles. It was a nightmare. - Loridagostino

Visited just after busy season. Very friendly and helpful staff. Not crowded tho if busy some sites are close together,quiet and clean. No on-site water but fill station located near entrance(you may wait in line a bit)and many container fill faucets located near sites. Picnic table located on concrete pad. Large fire pits are located close to roadside. Wood available at store and reasonably priced,$6 half wagon(provided)$12 full. Also offer on-site delivery for larger loads. Would recommend a full size ax to cut as some pieces quit large. Store also has many camping items at fair pricing. Restrooms were clean and well lighted. - Willburr

Full hookup sites are in loops around grassy fields. Our site 33 was large and shaded for the afternoon, a real plus with no A/C. Loops A and B were much less busy. There is a real nice network of biking trails right from the campground. Washroom building was old but they make an effort to keep it clean. Hot water with good pressure. Swimming beach open Fri, Sat, Sun with lifeguard. - Darleen
