We checked into this campground a few days before labor day. The main event for this park is a big antique show at the end of August and that occurred the weekend before we arrived, so it was nice and quiet for our visit. We chose this park because it was the closest park in the area to visit friends. The sites with full hookups (sewer, water & electric) have 30 amp. There is free WiFi and no cable. The WiFi worked well closer to the office, but was spotty at the far end of the park. The park also offers tent camping. The staff was friendly and helpful. We would stay here again . The downside of this park is for those that plan on using the showers. The showers are Pay Showers and according to a neighboring tent camper, they are on a timer and are quite expensive. The roads and big rig parking spots are stones. Each site had a nice big picnic table and fire ring. There are not many trees which is exactly what we prefer for a good satellite reception. The area here is very pretty. There is an old canal with a hiking path across the street from the park. There are many good restaurants in the area as well as many antique shops. - ahmavic

We have stayed here before and looked forward to coming back. It is a small campground BUT really well maintained. This time, the free WiFi was down, but AT&T worked fine. The park only has 30 amp but it was sufficient for us. The water pressure was good and there was a sewer connection. At the end of our stay the park filled for the antique show that Bouckville is famous for. We also saw a hot air balloon land right behind the park when he ran out of air current. We stayed here in a 40-footer and will return. - walt66

Small family business, very friendly staff, the rate reflects a weekly rate of $150 per week, the park is basically a well maintained lawned area with gravel pads, picnic table, fire pit, 30 amp, water and sewer. Wifi was STRONG and we were at the back end of the park. We stayed here in a 40 foot motorhome. The interior roads are gravel and well maintained and accommodated us quite easily. Great little undiscovered jewel. - walt66

Park has new owners and they are trying hard to update the park and doing a good job so far. We stayed in a 40ft motorhome and had a back in site. Site was level enough to get level but it is a new site so had some mud that will be taken care of soon. Real nice lake for swimming and boating and fishing. Play ground for kids and lots of tent sites. The only bad thing was that we stayed under Passport America and the didn't follow the rules. They only take $10.00 off the night rate of $42.00 instead of the 50 percent. So if you are going to use PA you might ask when you reserve a site as PA was going to call them and straighten it out. Hope they do. - fuzzie1

Nice little campground. Tight getting a big rig in but had a nice site. 30 amp, water. AT&T worked fine, no Sat TV because of trees. Only drawback was road noise . We were parked right at the road ( SR 8). Friendly management. We would stop here again. Price reflects PPA rate. - walt66

We were supposed to receive a Passport America rate. My wife got out a $20 bill so we were charged $20 instead of the $15 PA rate. Plus she charged $3 additional for the use of an A/C. Only noticed after the fact what with being tired coming off the road. easy Marks, I suppose. Our campsite was six feet off the berm of a busy highway, a fact initially concealed by a row of bushes which the road noise had no trouble penetrating. Bathrooms were old and had not been cleaned recently. A sign in each bathroom proclaimed: “Hot water turned off from 11:30 AM to 7:30 PM”. We camped here in a travel trailer and would not do so again under any circumstance. - geysergazer

This is a beautiful location, but unfortunately the interior conditions do not meet modern standards for short term occupation. The access roads are heavily overgrown with both bushes and tree limbs and badly scratched both sides of our fifth wheel just getting in. Most sites are occupied by seasonal trailers and it was impossible to back around into several others. The site we finally used had a great view, but needed blocks and a lot of work for leveling. Other, more accessible, campgrounds are available in the Oneida area. Sorry, we won't stay here again. - Little Black Dog

Owner is very nice. Mostly seasonal campers. Limited number of sites for over nighters. Low hanging trees and bushes scratched our coach getting in and out. This is one of the few (if not only) RV parks in the area. - Westside

Older park with few upgrades. Sites are uneven grass and dirt. Our water and electric hookups were 30 feet from the sewer. The cable hookup was another 25 feet back and did not work. Not much room between sites. Lots of things for kids, but we have no kids. Nice pool. 30 minute drive to Cooperstown. - Corninggirl

We were here a week (in our 42 foot coach) because our grandson was in a tournament in Cooperstown which is about a half hour away. Our hosts were great and very willing to accommodate our needs! This is a rustic campground with grass sites. They had had a lot of rain before we got there and as a result our site over looking the lake had some mud. One of our jacks got stuck between the mud and the jack pad during setup. The manager went above and beyond to get it released! After that everything went smoothly! They have a beautiful pool, boating and fishing on the lake, and tons of activities for kids and families! Verizon cell does not work in the campground, there is no internet and the cable TV was pretty sketchy. But for a family to get away from it all, it's a great place to escape! - Tugboat & Annie

We only chose this place because we were visiting our 5 grandchildren and my son, and great "entertainment" for them (ages 5-14). The kids liked it, but that's about all the "good" I can say about it! Here's the bad: The sites are so unlevel that they are very difficult to get level (with many boards), plus most have the hook-ups way up front which also made for very difficult parking a back-in site! Some of the sites are in complete shade all of the time (ours) and some in total sun all of the time (my son's); unless you 'know' the park, it's the luck of the draw! Then, there's the traffic! Golf carts, vans, trucks, cars, zoom, up, down, in, out, back and forth all day and night to & from all the locations of the park making it hard to actually walk to them! The pool and the slip n' slide (only free things) were not heated, and with the temp's not getting above the mid 70's, the kids could only last so long before they turned blue. Weekends were better, as they have more "organized activities" going on, but not so much during the week-even though it was still "summer" hours. The park pretty quiet during the week. This would not be a place I would choose to come back to. Even the staff was bored, paying very little attention to the kids. Absolutely NO: WIFI, TV, CELL SERVICE, ETC!! you are in a big hole there, having to drive at least 10 miles to even get a decent cell service! - MarieB

This was our second stay at this CG, which should tell you something about how we like it. One of the best we've been to. Spotless and well-maintained rest rooms. Sites have plenty of room; we had a pull-through and there was plenty of room to disconnect our TV. Wifi as good as any we've had, even in the evening on a busy weekend. I brought my bike and there were nice routes on the nearby roads, especially Rt. 365, which has a wide shoulder. Took a nice (car) day trip to Rome, Utica, and other nearby towns. This is what every CG should be. - Ken Franklin

Very nice campground. Only bad thing about back in sites is they are 90 degree, so it took some finagaling. Everything well kept, but a small store. - russ1102

This is a very nice looking park, but I definitely don't feel it is a good park for the price. We were in site 515. All sites in the 500 loop seem to be sloping down. Our front jacks were almost to the ground trying to level. The grass was worn off from mats and it had rained before we got here, so our entrance to the camper was muddy. Even though they say there is WIFI at each site, it was very weak and most times couldn't get on. Probably the worst, is the train that comes by about every 20 minutes, even through the night. I don't know how far away it was, but we could feel the rumble of the train and the horn was pretty loud. This is a huge park, so maybe if you were in a different loop towards the middle of the park, it might not be as bad. For such a huge park, they only had 4 washers and dryers and one of each of those was out of order, so we ended up going into town to do laundry as the working machines were in use. They close the laundry when the office closes so you can't even do it at night. It is a beautiful park with spacious sites, but we like comfort and probably wouldn't stay here again. The site was also not long enough to park our truck after disconnecting the 5th wheel. We had to T-bone it as did all the others in our loop. - jacknpeg

Overall this is our kind of park. Small, well cared for, pride of ownership. Water, electric and WIFI worked well. Lots of covered bridges in the area. There are 2 ponds and one lake on the property. We camped here in a 40' motorhome. - illini777

The quiet peaceful nature of this park was enhanced by staying midweek so most of the seasonal and transient sites were unoccupied. We stayed in the big rig section which was level grass accessed partly by gravel interior road followed by driving through a grassy meadow. Many sites are heavily wooded. Wi-Fi was slow but other services were good. Phone service was good and directly from AT&T but data service was from an affiliated provider. The many minor roads necessary to find the park are poorly marked. It is a Good Sam park but the discount is not offered for the first night when making reservations. - never settled

What a Gem! It's off the road but a real nice park. Very well maintained, extremely quiet and has very helpful staff. Call for directions. It is Big Rig friendly. We will stay here again when visiting UpState NY. - Mike & Elaine Austin

Love camping here because it's away from EVERYTHING. Sitting by the campfire, you hear nature. With no electric sites, the only light is given by your campfires and lanterns. It's a pretty unique experience.
The roads needs to be redone, and the showers could be updated, but for those wanting to be immersed in nature, you can't beat it. - bumblehead

Great helpful staff. Activities for kids (fishing derby). Lots of privacy. Cheap wood (4 pieces for $1.00). Very limited showers. No hot water for dishes, no dish wash station so take something along. Very quiet and patrolled often. Kayak rental is reasonable. Beach is sand but water was not real clear, still better than most lakes as far as seaweed. Most of the sites are on a hill so be prepared to walk. We enjoyed ourselves you just have to be prepared for dishes & lack of shower facilities. It is a nice campground. - babybean

Bowman Lake State Park (BLSP) is billed as a "camper's paradise" on the website. I don't know about paradise, but our experience here was pretty good. Getting there - if you are coming from the north or east, your GPS receiver will take you on some unpaved back roads that aren't very trailer-friendly. Stay on NY12 southbound *past Norwich* down to Oxford, and then turn right onto NY220, then left onto Bliven-Sherman Rd., which will take you right into camp. This route is longer, but will keep you on paved roads. Also note - there is basically NO cellular reception at BLSP - with my Wilson booster, I was able to get enough signal to make an emergency call on my Verizon phone, but could not get any signal at all from AT&T. This is either a plus or a minus, depending on your perspective. On to the park itself. The campsites at BLSP are a good size for tenting and trailers up to the 25-foot range, and we had no major difficulty leveling our rig. Sites are nicely separated with forest in between them, so if you're looking for a quiet/private camping experience, this is a good place to go. Each site has a brick fireplace with a metal grate, which is handy if you like to cook on the campfire. The bathroom facilities are dated, but are very well maintained and kept clean. There is only one shower facility; we didn't use it so we can't comment on it. There were scheduled arts/crafts activities for the kids on Saturday morning, which they enjoyed. The swimming area is small but pleasant; they also offer rentals of canoes, kayaks and rowboats for a reasonable fee. No water or electricity at any of the sites, but water faucets are easily available around the park, and those with trailers or RVs can fill their freshwater tanks at the dump station. Only major gripe with the park was that the roads/parking lots are in poor repair, which meant we had to do some artful dodging as we brought our trailer in. - nextcube

Our site was in the "Hilltop" section, and we had one of the few sites with individual water service. Our 50 amp electric was solid and reliable. The park is very clean and well maintained, with workers regularly visiting the restrooms and restocking as needed. Our site was reasonably large, and could easily accommodate the largest RV's. Some may find the steep road grade leading to this section challenging though. The tree cover at our site made satellite dish aiming difficult, but we were able to "see" the Dish eastern arc satellites ok. Verizon cell service was weak, but our on board cell amplifier/repeater handled it well. OTA TV is limited, but we did find a fairly strong signal from a Utica station that carries NBC on their primary channel, and CBS on a secondary channel. Gilbert Lake is somewhat of a secret, and the park was very lightly occupied while we were there during the week. I expect it does get busier on the weekends. All in all, this is a nice park to visit to just relax, and a number of attractions are nearby, such as the Baseball Hall of Fame in nearby Cooperstown. We will return here fairly often since our granddaughter and great granddaughter live nearby. - NYDutch

We were in Hill Top loop in a spacious, level, well shaded site, with gravel & grass, with water & 30A electric, grounds were clean & well maintained.
Bathrooms & showers were clean & always well stocked.
The only strange thing I found about this campground, was the fact that this is the Only CG we've ever been in that had NO trash cans, anywhere in the loop, however the dumpsters/recycle bins were centrally located.
This is a very quiet, slightly out of the way campground, there are numerous restaurants & places to shop in Oneonta, about 14 mi away.
There is a nice lake with fishing & swimming, a beach & hiking trails.
There are also numerous cabins for rent for those without an RV.
While there is no sewer, there is a dump station.
If we ever find ourselves in the area again, we will certainly stay here again. - bukhrn

We stayed in an electric camp site, which meant full sun, but there was always a breeze. We were close to the restrooms. Restrooms were better than some RV parks we have seen, always clean. Private showers (two men, two women, two handicapped) Weird, never had to wait though? We will return. - C H
