15 Parks near Hornell, New York

I had a last-minute change of route, and this park was located where I needed to stop. On a June Saturday night, they only had no-hookup spaces. The web site said they were $14, they charged me the $19 hookup rate, and didn't give me my 10% discount for being old. I was too tired to complain.
The grass site was almost impossible to get level on, but I was able to spill over into some empty space and park sideways on a hill and after 2-3 tries, found a spot that could level.
All that sounds awful, but it's such a nice park I didn't care, and after all, it was a last-minute thing. Friendly neighbors helped me level. Beautiful location on a lake or reservoir; other campers said the fishing was great. Seemed like a nice family-oriented crowd, well-maintained lawn. I would definitely recommend one of the hookup sites, which are on level ground and very reasonably priced. - bobk3d

Paved interior roads with open grass campsites. Limited shade and sites are mostly in an open field. Geese have taken over the lake front making walking hazardous if you don't watch your step. Lake is shallow and heavily silted, but OK for kayaking. Park gets regular local use for picnics etc. Close to I-86/ Rt.17 for an overnight stop. Lack of water at sites and poor area roads means we probably won't be back. - Appleknocker

This is one of our favorite little get away places. Very quiet. When we want a weekend to relax and unwind this is the place. Very simple camping with beautiful views of Almond Lake. Most of the electric sites are 30 amp and water is close by, but be sure to fill your tanks or carry water with you as there are no sites with water or sewer. There is a dump station. The park is close enough to town for any shopping, but tucked away enough to enjoy the peace and calm of the beautiful countryside. We will come back again and again. - Our Beautious

The road to this park is AWEFUL if you are pulling a trailer of any size. There was a posted blue CAMPING sign at the first turn but then nothing to help you find the park. We missed the first turn and called the park. She had us take the back road. AWEFUL, AWEFUL, AWEFUL AND SCARY. I would never take it again. We finally arrived at the park and the owner had us park at a back-in site but had us park like we were a pull thru. Site was grass and very mushy due to heavy rain. We were very apprehensive but agreed to pull onto the grassy area. We stayed 2 days and took us 5 attempts to get out due to almost getting stuck. The road out of the park is very steep and narrow also. We will NEVER stay at this park again. - FullTimeRVers

Just a so so park but had good access from highway. Activities for children, swimming/fishing pond, and playground. Rate reflects Passport America rate. We stayed just one night. If in the area we would stay again. - User2209

Stayed here for an Escapees Rally in mid June. Lawns were extremely well kept. Attention to details on the camp design and layout was apparent. The pavilion was one of the best we've seen. Staff could not have been nicer. Only thing I could think of to criticize is the lack of 50 amp connections in the area we were in but that's a very minor issue. There is a $2.50/ day fee if you use air conditioner but we didn't need it. The permanent seasonal sites and rigs are meticulously well kept, no junk trailers at all like most parks. Main complaint for all of us is not the campgrounds fault and that is no cell phone service. You can occasionally get a signal if you walk around. BUT the Wi-Fi is free. Works near the office only, however. We have a Wi-Fi roof antenna and had a great signal but most campers need to move to the office area. Very pretty setting and the campsites are pretty long and wide. We will definitely be here again. - lajuene

Highly recommended! Our tent site was in the back, near woods. A few steps away was a short nature trail leading to amazing waterfalls. You can wade in the falls pools, or hike the falls using water shoes. The pool was cold but clean. Wide open area for sports play. Restrooms were convenient to tent site and were clean. Large group of campers first night kept us up all night screaming and swearing. When we notified management, they spoke with campers and did extra rounds, and rounds later at night to make sure there were no further problems. The grounds were just very pretty. We went jogging through them in the morning. - Martin B

This was our second time camping here, hoping things had improved since the first, but we came for the Halloween weekend and free haunted house that is put on by a large family that camps there. The haunted house was excellent and my kids were scared! However, things were not better, the owners and staff are miserable and very unfriendly. They are not kid friendly, and do not want kids in the store even if they have money to spend. The bathrooms and showers are very old and very dirty. I would not shower in there. The activities are minimal, they did have ceramic painting for the kids. The campground also had a haunted house and hay ride, but those you had to pay extra for. I will never go back to this campground again, it is not a family friendly place, they are more interested in having older people with no kids as a seasonal site. - krjz4

We ended up staying at Sugar Creek Glen as our attempt to stay at another park was awful. We had a week of 90 degree heat and found ourselves running the motorhome generator much of the day. Moving down the street to Sugar Creek Glen upgraded us to electric sites along with site water. While this was our second stay at Sugar Creek Glen we were glad to see new owners this year. This is a gorgeous park alongside a creek which just needed some TLC to make it spectacular. The new owners were just what the park needed. They went out of their way to meet our request for a site right on the creek. This was important as our two girls enjoyed playing in the stream. It was nice having the kids in our view throughout the day. It also made it easy for the whole family to enjoy our daily walk up the creek to the multiple falls. We also enjoyed the weekend activities of Christmas in July. This presented a visit by Santa, small gifts for the kids, and a large camp fire. We enjoyed the time talking to all of the campers. Comments by the seasonal campers were very supportive of the new management and maintenance of the park. Our impression of everything was similar. We certainly look forward to coming back again next year to see further updates to a wonderful campground. Roads were slightly narrow matching previous reviews; however, we could easily maneuver our 35 ft motorhome without difficulties. - HappyRVCamper2

I wish I had a smaller pop-up like rig to navigate the place. Everything is absolutely beautiful, except some of the seasonal sites. And the inside of the bathroom. Still for $25 a night, it's a good place to hang out for the weekend or more. It's not a resort, but then again the resorts are asking you to pay 3 times as much. Moral: You get what you pay for. - Walt Newman

We stay in the non-electric sites so that we can be next to the stream. There are several waterfalls and fantastic creek walking. The new owners are friendly and working hard to improve the campground while keeping the rustic feel. This place is a favorite of ours but, If you are looking for an RV resort, this is not your place. - Lindalew

This was the worst campground I ever stayed at. Our site for a big rig was in a field. The site was uneven and I had to block one wheel. The power was broken, the water didn't work. We left after 1 night. Avoid this campground. Last capital improvement was probably in the 70's. - User1611

pros: The sites are huge, grassy and there are tons of open places where you can basically camp in any direction, formation or arrangement you like. The fires can be as large as you like. You can spread out, park several vehicles and the prices aren't too bad. The hay ride is fun, depending on your driver (one of the regular drivers is tame, the other wild/fun). Pets are welcome, and not segregated to a particular part of the park. cons: The park's infrastructure is really aged and unmaintained leaving us with little electricity (not enough to run a television) and low enough voltage to cause problems with electrical appliances and television. The electrical connections are worn and appeared to be household 15 am circuits with inadequate weather protection. There was chronically low water pressure. We had to fill the fresh tank and use the pump to have enough pressure for shower or washing dishes. The pool is small, and was at capacity with less than 20 people. The water in the pool was ice cold (too many people coming/going and a hose constantly refilling the pool). The playgrounds are aged and rusted, not exactly safe with exposed sharp points and ill fitting slides, stinging insect hives and rusted swing chains. Full-timers raced about on noisy golf carts regularly exceeding the speed limit and kicking up dust. Neighbors ignored quiet hour rules, and had the nerve to complain in the morning when children made noise after 9 am. We won't be returning to this campground. - doodler

We stayed overnight on a busy holiday weekend. There were lots of activities planned. There was food available for supper and breakfast. There is a big pond for fishing and a nice pool for swimming. Campers were quite close together on very tight roads. - suerover

Stony Brook State Park is primitive, there are no hookups to speak of. This park is gorgeous. The man made gorge trail is beautiful. The pool that is in the gorge is awesome - cold but awesome. This would be a ten if there were some sort of hookups. Book in advance if you are going on the weekend - - sue100

Beautiful state park, but camping section is at top and not very accessible. Camping area, despite beauty of area, is dissapointing. - travelingdadof2

Nice wooded sites. Very clean bathrooms. I was very disappointed that the swimming area at the campground has been closed. The bathhouse is still present and has 4 lovely showers. The campsites are in need of ground maitenance as some trees have fallen and are blocking access to the brook others are in need of trimming as the branches are very low and makes it difficult to back a TT in place. The lower park is free to all campers and offers a unique "natural" swimming pool, new in 2004 playground, great snack/gift shop and lovely trails. - 52 camp

Nice quiet park on a hillside. Steep entry, difficult for some. Mixture of sites, some large, some small. All fairly well kept. That is the positive. The very large negative was the lack of water. No mention of the problems when making reservations, but shown a water schedule after making the payment. The owner said we could fill our own tank, but it probably wouldn't be necessary. However, the schedule was far from accurate. We only had water for about two hours during a two night stay. Also, the boil water warning form the county health department was only posted in the bath house. One of our neighbors was drinking it before finding out. On the second day a camp host asked us to sign off regarding the boil water notice. This was our second try at this campground. The first included very loud and drunken behavior by seasonal workers. We will not stay here again. - Stephen20

We had a very nice, wooded, secluded, large and level site. Too many trees for our satellite dish but their cable was good. No Wi-Fi. Their were a few negatives. The road in and out is a very steep gravel road. We picked up an infestation of sap beetles. These are small winged insects that appeared on our screen door as soon as we arrived. Enough of them got in as we went in and out, so we were vacuuming them up for days. We will not stay again because of the steep road and the beetles. - RVLive

Beautiful sites in woods which provide lots of shade. Most sites large with plenty of room. Park is very well maintained. Hosts were very friendly and helpful. Bathroom stalls are small and a bit cramped, shower was large. Wi-Fi is very limited. Cable TV excellent. Due to trees, very limited satellite TV reception. We'll stay here again. - JavanMichael

The park is very nice and clean, we loved the dog park. The price is high but included all activities (ie. Mini golf, pedal carts, laser tag, disc golf, jumping pillow, splash pool). Our only complaint was that since we were camping in mid June through the week and most local schools are not on summer break yet, many of the included activities were not open or had shorter hours during the weekdays. Also, due to the timing, the children's pool closed at 5pm on the weekdays which seemed kind of early. We thought the nightly rate was high but reasonable if it included the extra activities. However, since many of the extra activities were not available, it would have been nice if they had adjusted the rate for those weekdays. I'm sure this park is great fun during high season, we probably just hit it at the wrong time. Although, on the bright side, since many sites were empty, we had a nice peaceful stay.
One other recommendation is that they trim the low branches of their trees, we scraped the roof of our motor home on our way out of the park. - 4RollingGs

Of the three pools, we only visited the kids pool in the front with the spray ground. The kids loved it but the internet and pamphlets state the pools are open until 8pm. They closed it at 7pm! If we had known in advance, we would have arranged our schedule so the kids had more than 5 minutes to swim. The water was extremely dirty and cloudy all weekend. Kids enjoyed the full basketball court, dogs enjoyed the dog park, nice playgrounds, too! Great crafts and activities over the weekend. I loved they had 80 lbs and under/over times for the bounce pillow (bring socks!) - Camping Mer

We had a bit of an issue when assigned our site. They corrected it easily as this was a weekday, and camp was quite open. It could have been an issue on a weekend. We had excellent hook ups that worked well, and we had a site with satellite coverage. Verizon worked well also. Only issue we saw was that the interior roads are a bit narrow. Site leveling was easy. We would stay here again. - hug448844

Jul 2016 - $19.00
I am over ten yr user here, seldom moved to comment. But as others noted, stated ppa rate $17.50 by phone, quoted $19.00 on arrival, hard try to up charge to $21. Refused any but phone quote for w/30 E. So placed on unlevel, precarious, edge of a deep dry gulch with the deep water wellhead ON my postage stamp site. Low voltage, barely allowed by my EMS. Huge tree prevented full use of slide out. Only reasonable campground for many miles or I would have declined and would NOT return nor recommend. No OTA TV and to purchase cable requires fhu and the inflated rate it incurs. - Wicked Witch

We weren't informed that our space was water & electric only, and once we got setup tried to get TV no stations. Later we were out and found someone to talk to, they informed us that for $3 more we could get cable. That was not communicated to us. We weren't given a map of the grounds or informed where the showers or restrooms were. The showers, no hooks for your things in the shower, and the water temp is not adjustable. Not impressed, even though the grounds are well kept. - sambasstuff

We chose this park because we are members of Passport America discount camping club. We were in the area and had to drive a little out of our way to find a reasonable rate for a campsite.
The advertised rate was $16/night on the Passport America site. We called to verify availability before arriving but not the nightly rate. When checking in we were told the rate was $18 and that "they" had it wrong on their website.
Now, $2/night is no big deal for a four-night stay, but it just sours the experience when things are not as they are quoted.
We found a site with full hookups and got settled for the night. The next morning at 8 am the pounding started outside our door. Apparently the RV next door was being replaced with a park model trailer. This park is loaded with seasonal units and very few transient sites. Most of the transient sites they have do not include sewer service. You have to ask for that!
Long story short, we were asked to move so they could get the old trailer out and the new one in. You mean they did not know that the day before?
Once we settled in another site we were fine. The Electric service worked fine, the sewer hookup was a 3" service, but was new, and water pressure was good at 60 psi.
We were in site 23 on the end of a row which was good, close to the laundry, but every golf cart in the place paraded by all day long. It was like being in Florida in February.
The campground was off the main highway through Bath NY so if you are in the area, need a spot for the night, and are Passport members, it will get the job done. Just verify the rate as it is subject to change! - Howard Jaros
