Stayed the week of 4th of July. The sunsets are amazing. Yes there are a few bugs but they weren't biting bugs. We would definitely stay here again. - bthomforde

"Not ready for business"
Reserved a week , may 14- 21. Campground opened on the 13th. Upon arrival waited without even being acknowledged to check in. Asian lady on phone would not even make eye contact, only when manager came in did someone even speak to me.
Got the site we requested, weather was bad but that is fine.
Cable not working, and unless we stopped and asked at the office, got no info. What we were told is they know it is broke , only part of island did it work on, no ETA for repairs or even suggestion to move to a site with working cable.
Water pressure problems from Saturday on, still not working well on Tuesday. Suggestion was to fill our tanks and use our pump.
Massive issue started on Monday with hordes of some sort of bug, looked like flying ants. Swarms of them all over the island. Could not walk the dog or even be outside without being swarmed. Difficult seeing as you tried to avoid the goose crap all over the campground. Which basically looked like a renovation project gone horribly wrong. Construction material, equipment all over, from large piles of stone to roofing projects half complete.
We pulled out today without even bothering to see about a refund for unused days. Bugs were so bad we drove the car out instead of hooking up to avoid the swarming bugs.
WiFi is free but worthless. You get one hour gratis, but it kicks you off after 10 minutes, and when connected it is extremely slow. We were one of less than 5 people on the entire campground so slowness was not do to heavy traffic.
Gives the area and all KOAs a bad name, won't ever go back regardless of the views. - Bill VDA

Wow. Park on the lake. Great view. They have entertainment for children in the summer with wonderful staff. Wanted to stay longer, but wife had to leave. Buy your groceries before parking. Long way to store. - NC Travelers

This is a gem of an RV park to be sure. This was our first time here and to the region, so everything was new to us. We stayed here a month in a class A RV in a full hookup 50A pull-thru. The owners live on site and are extremely attentive to their guest's needs and to the overall condition of the park. The sunsets over Lake Ontario at their pergola were a treat as was the entertainers they hired on the weekends. This is a quiet, friendly, adult park. The sites are spacious, plenty of trees and grass and access to the main road is easy. We would absolutely stay here again. - rick r

We had a dilemma on our reservation and they went above and beyond to accommodate us. Very nice couple own and run this small park. Restrooms are clean but small with no real privacy and no area to place clothes and towel, besides floor. Site was level with stone base and grass between lots. Very roomy as well. 17 miles to Watertown for groceries. View of sunsets over Lake Ontario are spectacular. If ever in the area again we would stay here. - Pennylee

We enjoyed staying here and would return, if in the area. The sunsets over Lake Ontario are magnificent - many of those in the campground come to watch the sun go down - a nice moment of community. The grounds are well kept and the seasonal residents do a lovely job of maintaining their little piece of paradise. The new owners have been at it now for about 18 months and seem to be doing well. They're courteous and hospitable. The sites are level, with patio tables on the grass. Utilities are appropriately placed and work nicely. - LFClary

We have stayed at Westcott Beach SP twice, both times on the 'plateau', which will be the focus of this review. The plateau area is relatively new, with larger campsites that can accommodate big equipment. While all sites are back-in, they are relatively easy to get your trailer and tow vehicle into. All plateau sites have 40A electric; no full hook-up sites, but there are several locations where you can fill your freshwater tank, including the dump station. As a newer camping area, it features OPHRP's current standard bathroom/shower design, which has two shower stalls on each side (men/women) accessed through the bathroom area, as well as two self-contained handicapped bathrooms with a shower, sink and toilet. Has an outdoor sink, which is handy for washing dishes. The bathroom facilities are well-maintained. As others have noted, the main part of the state park is on the other side of the road; there are additional campsites on that side that are closer to the lake, but they are not as spacious or level as the plateau area sites. Westcott Beach SP has a swimming area, but no camp store or concession stand; the privately-owned Westcott Convenience store is close at hand with firewood, groceries, propane and other camping necessities. Overall, a good experience if you're looking to relax or are visiting Sackett's Harbor or Watertown. - nextcube

This campground provides plenty of activities for family campers. There is a large beach and day use area with a great playground that provides a lot of physical activity for children. There is also a vending machine and arcade building for day use. The campsites are medium size yet some are close to each other. Many sites are RV occupied and tend to block the views, but there are some inner sites for campers using tents. There are several comfort stations providing hot showers as well as potable water stations throughout the campground. There are a few electric sites. Quiet hours are pretty strict and may be enforced by other campers as well as a rare check-up by park officials. This campground is recommended for those looking for a quiet camping experience and an early lights out policy. - User2698

Awesome family campground with so much to do, great hosts, who are always there to help make sure you have a great camping experience! It is a pet friendly campground. They are constantly improving the campground. Great fishing awaits from the marina! It is close to shopping too. We have a seasonal campsite and we love it! You can walk around, drive a golf cart, go to the beach. They have restrooms, showers and laundry room. They have a brand new store that has ice cream and a pizza/wing restaurant that delivers. We are there as much as possible. It's our 2nd home! The camp hosts work very hard to satisfy their customers. We are very happy there! We've made many good memories there and look forward to many more! - Fleetwood7

The campground is small, and both parking and driving through are very tight. However, there are a few pull through spots right near the entrance that are easy to get in and out of. There are a lot of seasonal residences, but they are nicely maintained, and not trashy at all. In fact, some of them are pretty fancy. Some yards were cluttered, but with vacation toys, not household junk. The customer service was outstanding. There is wifi for sale at a reasonable rate ($4/3 days) and it worked well most of the time. The verizon signal was strong, ATT non existent. I did not notice the noise mentioned by previous reviewers, but I stayed mid-week, so it may just be that the park fills up on the weekends. There is a nice store on the property. - KAP99

Will never stay there again. Dusty and rough roads. Bare ground from digging sewer lines. Noisy. No quiet times. Reserved for a week but left after one night. Asked for refund and denied. This is more of a seasonal campground and not a RV Park. I do not have a good thing to say about Bedford Creek. - Ron Schweitzer

This is our second visit to this park in the past two years, and we will undoubtedly return in a couple of years. This particular NY state park has one of the nicest beaches of any NY park, so there are lots of water activities including an excellent snack bar, boating, swimming, and fishing, etc. Watch out for all the children on bicycles (speed limit in the campground is 5 mph). There is only one loop which offers any hookups, and that is electricity so these sites go fast. There are also a dozen or so smaller sites located within 30 yards of the Ontario shoreline (but without electricity). About one third of all sites are nicely shaded and most are quite large for easy maneuvering -- but sometimes overrun with tents, canopies, boats, and bicycles. The park does have several limitations including poor cellular service, no wi-if, and no nearby supermarket for groceries. Park security pays little attention to loud radios blaring. Our motorhome should have been sound proofed. - hockeybuff

There are three loops at this state park to accommodate all camping styles. Many RV's on the lake loop, while tents and pull type in the other two loops, one electric and the other not. Lakefront sites do not have electric so you need a generator or limited stay. Best to check the water before filling up your tank. Issues in past with filtration but appear resolved now. Never hurts to check first. Sites on beach loop can be sand blasted if real windy, so be aware of that. Reminds us of Daytona Beach as it is very wide and long. Not many places to hike but the beach. Park well kept but showers and bathrooms for the beach sites are aging. New baths for the inner sites. We camped on beach loop. - naturepix

Very clean state park. The toilet and showers are brand new and clean. If you want shade do not take a site in loop C (as we did) because it's in full sunlight. Wonderful beach and kids playground. - chetta

This is a great state park! The sites are all grass, some more level than others, and all are very good size. You can back in, pull in, or park cross-wise. We're a 40 ft., 4 slide motorhome; we could have parked it sideways in the site. Electric and non electric sites; water and dump station also available. Restrooms and shower were very clean and lots of hot water. Our Verizon MIFI worked very well, good cell coverage. There is a nice playground for kids, picnic area, boat launch, and fishing from the shore. Fire wood available at the office. We would definitely stay here again. - DiplomatTraveler

A quiet campground located on a scenic peninsula that juts out into the Chaumont Bay of Lake Superior. Most of the sites are open and grassy with a few shaded options for tent campers. All of the site have water views and some water access. A popular fishing destination and only a short drive from several historic towns on Lake Superior. The campground was full the weekend we stayed there, but not all noisy. Clean and well maintained facilities (and recycling) made this a pleasant place to spend the weekend. - watsontravels

We stayed 1 night and would not stay again unless it was the last resort. Water, electric and sewer worked, but as others have said, the long term residents seem to have it better than the transients. They far out number the overnight people. We were led to our site from the wrong direction. We were expected to make an impossible turn with our dully and 33 foot 5th wheel. Once we got to the site, it was an OK sized pull through on grass. It had rained and the site was pretty squishy. We were able to set up our satellite dish. - RVLive

Only spent 1 night here, mostly seasonal sites. Was probably nice for the seasonals but not very friendly for ones just passing through. - sassy530

We are seasonal there. They still have waterfront sights available. Could not believe the view. Fishing is great, watch the big ships, great place. Very hidden and private. Owners are very helpful, they even let us use their boat. Marina there is free to customers. A ++ - campingking

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

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
