The camp is very well located if you are interested in exploring the Finger Lakes wineries. It is small and very unassuming, which we like. We tend to avoid the "mega-campgrounds". Most of the sites are occupied by seasonal campers so availability of sites is very limited. The best site is #1 for non seasonal camping. Plenty of space and not overlooking anyone else. There is no privacy, the sites are pretty much one next to the other.

We love the private beach and lake access. Very romantic and quiet. We would definitely stay there again sure we decide to go back to the Finger Lakes. We camped at Back-Achers Campsites & Cottage Rentals in a Motorhome.

Based on our experience so far, this is a typical northern New York campground. Out of 20 RV sites, all but 4 were occupied by seasonals. The 3 sites available for transients are tight for large rigs. We were in a 34 motorhome and it was very difficult to maneuver into site 20. Site 20 and 1 are the only 2 sites with any hope of getting a satellite signal from your rooftop. The site are grass and dirt, with a little gravel thrown around where you park your RV. A 4G Verizon signal was present, but data speeds were very slow. The campground appeared to have a wifi signal, but we didn't use it. Firewood was reasonably priced. A walk down a fairly steep hill got you to Lake Seneca. There are boat docks available.

The most interesting part was the quarter mile drive down a narrow gravel road with several blind corners. There is no room for vehicles to pass one another.

This is a good area to base camp for Watkins Glen, Geneva, Hammondsport and many wineries and breweries. The daily rate reflects the weekly price. Per day it is $30. Per week it is $180 in spite of what their website says.

The sites are tight. Our windshield was about 3 feet from the back end of the motorhome in front of us.

If you are gong to stay here, disconnect your Toad at the scenic overlook on Highway 14 near Randall Crossing Road. Use your toad to run interference going down the narrow gravel road to warn off any on coming traffic. We camped at Back-Achers Campsites & Cottage Rentals in a Motorhome.
