16 Parks near Fulton, New York

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

Fair Haven Beach was a beautiful spot, although we were somewhat bothered by extremely hungry insects. Our site (#79) was level, but slightly damp. Bathhouse was older, but well kept and the water for showers was plentiful and hot. It was a bit over a mile's walk from our site to the beach, but the walk was lovely. The only negative was that the "view" of Lake Ontario from the bluff area was mostly obscured by over-grown vegetation on the lake side of the chain-link fence. It would be nice if the park maintenance crew could cut the weeds down so that people could see the fantastic view. - spencersmom

We got very lucky and reserved only days before the 4th of July weekend. We reserved the 3rd and 4th online, and were able to book the 5th when we arrived, so we had three wonderful nights there. There were plenty of places to walk - which we like to do - and then have ice cream at the park store next to the swimming beach. We would definitely camp at Fair Haven again, and regard it as one of the nicest parks in New York State. - GaryCamper

Stayed here for Memorial Weekend.
Checking in was very disorganized for RV pull-ins. The staff was rude and uninviting.
The number of golf-carts speeding around the campground was ridiculous and our children could barely ride their bikes around without getting yelled at by drivers because bikes are slow.
Vehicles would speed through at night making all sorts of noise and coolers and beer were getting stolen throughout the campsite.
The sites were close and the water pressure was very low and you have to rent a box now for tv that stated it was included with the site.
Staff did not have answers to common questions such as when the on site store closes.
There is no access to the campground if you leave after certain hours.
The pools were not open and were disgusting, fire pit rings were small brake drums and there were no activities for children.
They shut off the water on the day of check-out without warning us which delayed us cleaning up and being able to dump the rv sewer/gray water.
The beach showers did not work properly then were shut off completely instead of being fixed while bathhouse showers did not work properly and stalls were not private.
You also had to pay if you wanted internet that was supposed to be included. - User2698

This is a very large RV resort roght on Lake Onterio. Many of the sites are seasonal sites for trailers, 5th wheels and Park Models that are located close to the Lake. The other sites for non-seasonal short term stays are closer to the enterance to the park a little ways from the Lake. They have spaceous pull-thru sites with full hookups, a concrete pad with a picnic table, fir pit and cable TV. There are a lot of trees and plenty of grass that make for a very pleasant setting. As this park is a ways off of the highway it is very quiet. They have a large "social center" with several pools, a play area for kids, a restaurant, a store and a stage for bands/entertainment on weekends. At the beach they have a snack bar and picnic tables overlooking the Lake. Our $19 rate reflects our RPI membership. - Michael Kibler

We got 2 weeks free camping with RV purchase so I don't know price. Staff was excellent when we arrived. They told us to park where we wanted to and call with number. Site was big with a nice concrete slab and full hookup. Cable worked well. We walked to the beach and it was very nice. Lots of seating. I had read that someone complained about too many rocks on the beach, but they were pretty rocks and lots of people were "shelling for rocks". There was still lots of sand. The reviews I had read were fairly negative, but we found it to be great! Neat, clean, nice sites and nice people. I would recommend parking a little further away from the main road, that's a little noisy, but otherwise I really liked this place! 50 amp service worked great. - Ginny H

We only came to this park because of the promotion offer and were not interested in purchasing the membership which we told them at the time of the reservation. Still had to go through the presentation but they pretty much gave up on us because we were firm on not buying. My opinion everyone should check out the other campgrounds they own and that are part of this membership before you purchase. As they told us about campgrounds pictures can be deceiving.
Now for the campground review. They state that this is a 5 star resort. We have stayed at other 5 star resorts around the country and this is at best a 3 star. No cable, Wifi only at the office area, only limited 50 amp service, and newer sites with no sewers. The park does have lots of things to do for activities but they require upgrading. Just the basketball hoops alone were in sad shape and the main pool was being torn apart to replace the liner.
The site we had was wide enough but next to someone that was surely a member and had lots of junk around their camper which was a blight on the overall view.
If this were an open campground we would visit again only for a stopover and not for an extended stay. - John Borajkiewicz

Price reflects C2C membership. Campground was very easy to find. The staff in this campground were all very friendly and helpful. We were there at the end of the season and so they were beginning to shut things down. They have a restaurant, but it is only open on weekends. (We were ok without a lot going on, so this isn't a negative... just a comment.)
This is a standard "parking lot" style campground. However, they easily handle big rigs.
Sites are close together but manageable. The truck, 5th wheel and jeep all fit in the site-but very tight.
Gravel roads through the campground; asphalt main campground roads. Camp sites are grass and each site has a picnic table. We struggled getting level in our site-there was a significant slope.
They have a laundry room, machines were only $1. Campground is directly on the lake. There was a great deck overlooking the lake that we enjoyed while waiting for laundry. Good Verizon coverage. Easy to get DirecTV satellite. It is a nice clean, enjoyable campground. There seemed to be a lot for kids to do. - GLPColorado

The park itself is great. It has a real resort feel, with tons of activities. Everything is modern and well maintained. The employees are friendly and very professional. The park is only a few miles from Interstate 81, so its easy to access but very quiet. There are a number of over the air TV channels. Cell service is very good. There is wifi in the adult lounge only, but it is very slow and did not work part of the time I was there.
As for the site I was assigned, it was hopelessly inconvenient. I was in a new area, and the area itself had a considerable slope to it. They had levelled some of the sites by building up an asphalt pad from the front to the back of the site, but only big enough for the RV itself. This resulted in the back of my trailer jutting out over a cliff. I could only access my water port and bike with a step stool, and could not get my rear stabilizers anywhere near the ground. Also, a common utility post serviced four sites, and I needed an extra hose and an extension cord to reach the utilities. The sites were a good size side to side, but front to back, the trailers were very close, although offset. I did tour the park, and these issues did not exist in any of the older sections of the park. - KAP99

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

Very nice park with level gravel pull thru. Staff helpful and friendly. Many seasonal units. Most sites have shade trees. Many activities for children and adults. Swimming pool clean and well maintained. Bathrooms and showers exceptionally clean. They do have an extra fee for AC use and for Wi-Fi. We would stay here again. - atwig

The staff is exceptionally helpful. We had trouble with our satellite dish on our site and Susan went out of her way to rearrange things so we could move to another site. I also called 3 different times before arriving because I had to change my dates and she was extraordinarily accommodating. Very clean, beautiful, well-managed campground. - dalemitchell

Selkirk Shores is a very popular campground in the Oswego, NY area - when we stayed there the campground was *completely full* on Friday and Saturday nights. We stayed in a site with electrical service, which worked fine. Sites are TINY, barely 30x20 feet; our tow vehicle wouldn't fit in the site with our 21 foot hybrid. The neighbor's campfire circle was almost under our camper, which made me more than a little nervous. Not the place to stay if you're not interested in a VERY social camping experience. Bathrooms were relatively new and kept reasonably clean, but due to apparent sewage problems didn't smell very good. Selkirk used to have a beach, but it's been closed for several years, though they do give you free access to the beach at another state park nearby. Essentially nothing to do at the park except fish in the Salmon River; there are no trails for hiking, no swimming, and no marina. - nextcube

Very nice family oriented park. Rec staff were great (thanks Penny!) well organized, family friendly and facilities adequate for rainy days and sunshine alike. Beach is nice but bring water shoes as it's a bit rocky in the deeper areas. Sites are adequate but can accumulate standing water in a storm. Park staff is very nice, good patrols. Nice paved access for bike riding and excellent trails. No critter problems, fire pits are nice size as well. We really enjoyed it there and will definitely be back! - FleisM

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

For us, this is another campground that is OK for an overnight or at most a couple of days if you need to do something in the area. Access roads from the interstate (I-81) are good 2 lanes, but the campground is somewhat out of the way. Roads in the campground are dirt in near poor condition. We found mostly seasonal occupancy but most units were in good condition and reasonably well kept. There are also several park models. The swimming pool is across the road at the associated motel complex as is the office for RV check-in. Utilities were adequate. Campground was quiet at night. It was raining when we were there and we noted quite a few low areas within the sites that contained standing water as did the roads. The sites are advertised as being gravel but all we could see were grass. Sites appear to be reasonably level. TV reception with off-air antenna was decent. There were no Satellite dishes in view anywhere and we did not attempt to use ours. We would probably try to find another campground in the area that might be more convenient. - dogman

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

Despite the large number of seasonal campers, this entire campground needs some love in my opinion. As other reviews say, the roads are rough, the bathrooms and restrooms need a make over and sites are just out in the open, for weekenders, from what I saw. At least my site was level. The campground was noisy most nights but one night very loud music was going until after 2 AM. I and the person in the next site complained and while management "apologized" for the noise, the loud campers seemed to know exactly who complained and were obnoxious about it. Besides the noise I saw an unusual amount inconsiderate behavior like cleaning fish on the picnic tables that belong to other sites. To me that and the general condition tell me that management does not run a very tight ship. When we go back to the area, we will look for a different campground. - Bandguy

What a joke! Miniature golf??? Looks to have been closed for years. Overgrown and not usable. Showers/restrooms right out of the 70's. Infested with flying bugs (no screen doors) If you have a seasonal site there is shade, if not, good luck. We were in the middle of a grassy field. Our MH sunk in about 3 inches before we left. NO SHADE AT ALL! Pool looks ok, but lots of kids splashing around. No night patrol or lights. Laundry also directly out of the 70's. This whole place needs huge amount of TLC. What sewer hookups there were (none in the non-seasonal sites) were just a corrugated plastic pipe sticking out of the ground. Scummy pond is still there. Who knows, perhaps this is where the sewer does go. You can find MUCH BETTER parks fairly close by. I will not be back and suggest you do not go there as well. THIS WAS THE PITTS!!! - Medico

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 camped here late August midweek so it was not crowded. We were in the area for State Fair. We were surprised that it was not more crowded. Our site was on the water and we had some gorgeous sunrises and sunsets. The beach was closed, which was disappointing since I thought it was still going to be open since it was before Labor Day, but it looked to be very nice. The bathrooms were clean. You do have to drive to get to the showers as these are near the beach. Only complaint was we arrived after 6pm and were unable to obtain the code to open the door to the restroom. Had to leave a message on the campground phone line but they did eventually respond. Just wish they would let people know that if you arrive late this is something you need to be aware of. i did feel safer knowing that there was a code for the door though. Sites were open but shady. Site were OK in size..you might feel a little crowded during peak season. Lots of places to walk our dogs. - siberian

Sites are wide, some are not very deep; most are level. Bathrooms were clean enough, but could have been better. Nice spot for our Golden to swim in the lake. Good location to visit family and locations on the north or west side of Syracuse. - 2hams
