Nice place for an overnight stay. Very quiet. Dirt sites were fine during our stay, however could be a problem if it rained. Decent TV reception. No AT & T cell signal. Free wi-fi for 15 minute trial. Wi-fi for a fee after 15 minutes. We didn't need wi-fi so we didn't use it. - tomnorman457

We stopped for the night. We did not use any facilities. Dirt roads, just a park. Nothing fancy. 50 amp was good. Sewer hookup was good. Did not have to unhook in our pull through site. - xflyhighx

Has large, level, grassy sites. Great pool. Poor utilities and terribly slow WiFi (if at all). Good family campground with lots of kid's activities. Decent laundry with 4 machines. - dotr

Sites are very shady with most being located in the trees. Our site had the electric/water hookups on the top of a mound while the sewer was located close to the site. The patio/picnic table/fire ring was located up the side of a hill behind the site. There is a small swimming area in the park on the lake. Roads in the park are tight but manageable. At&T service was OK but we were unable to use our rooftop satellite dish because of the trees. One long hiking trails runs along the lake although its not very well maintained in parts of it. Not close to any grocery stores. We did not get on the lake but it looked very nice. - Co-Mike

The price listed includes a 50% Senior Pass discount. Tompkins is a beautiful campground located along Cowanesque Lake with fairly large sites that are nicely separated from the neighboring sites. Some areas have trees and bushes separating the sites for privacy, while others are in more open areas. The water, 20/30/50 amp electric, and sewer connections were well located on our back-in site (site #3) requiring a minimum of hoses and cord. Water pressure and voltage were both well within acceptable ranges. The sites have a paved RV driveway and a packed gravel area for the picnic table and fire pit. The boat launch and swimming areas are well laid out, and easily accessible. There's a 4 mile long maintained hiking trail with some good views of the lake and benches for resting along the way. The only downside we found that keeps this location from getting a 10 rating is the poor to non-existent cell signal for all carriers. That's not the campground's fault of course, but something to be aware of. We would definitely camp here again. - NYDutch

This is a great campground! Sites are very well laid out, with only a couple of exceptions in the Knoll loop. I had a site overlooking the lake this trip and it was really nice. Quiet campers all around, although as it was early June and the park was not full. The only thing detracting from the campground is the road noise from the road on the other side of the lake. It's not a problem at night though. That's the only reason I don't give it a 10. - Pickycamper

After reading some of the reviews on this site I feel compelled to add my two cents.
My wife and I are full-timers, and we are still doing a substantial amount of moving about, so we see a pretty good number of campgrounds. What impresses me is not the physical attributes of a camp, or how near is the closest pub, or if the satellite dish will work. One of the things that does impress me is the thoughtfulness of the host: Camp Bell has that in spades!
They anticipated my needs and were prepared, they anticipated my wants and adjusted. They are all about customer service.
The camp was immaculate, and the seasonal trailers were very well-maintained, which can't be easy.
The store was nice, and was stocked with necessities as well as locally produced souvenirs. Prices for goods and services were very reasonable, and I have certainly paid much more this summer for the same service.
Having the owner come around to the camp to see if there was anything he or his wife could do, twice a day, told me that they are serious about providing a quality experience. Finest kind of people.
While we chose this camp randomly, you can be certain we will return if we find ourselves in the Finger Lakes Region again. - J M Rowe

The permanent people have the shade. The transients are in a big field with no shade. They do offer a package for the Corning Museum and the Rockwell museum. Corning is great, but we did not think that the Rockwell museum was worth going to. Spend your time at Corning. The bathrooms ate clean but outdated. The people at reception could have been a bit nicer. - har-fl

Nightly rate is for a 20 amp electric hookup which is unusual. Passport America drops it to $16 but then add $4 for 30 amp service so it's $20 for a pull-through W&E site only. WIFI worked well but the park was sparsely populated this time of year. We did not purchase the cable, there are about 15 OTA TV signals available. Side by side sites but when the park is not crowded the owners spread the guests out which is very nice. Park is well maintained and well groomed, owners are very nice and helpful. We would return in the future. - Bob & Stephanie

This is a beautiful campground. The sites are well spaced and well maintained. With the exception of Pine Loop, all sites have E/W. Most of the site #s below 100 also have sewer. The sites have a paved pad, a table, and a fire ring. Satellite reception is available but reco having a portable dish. ATT service is only "off-network" but Verizon is 2 bars. No wifi at all.
My biggest gripe is site specific reservations, we travel ad hoc so to stay for a week we've had to change sites 3 times. Reservations should only be amenities specific. You want E/W/S? Guaranteed but not the specific site. - HoliRambler1

Interagency Senior Pass 50% discount for a 50 amp electric and water site. Site had a concrete pad that was slightly off side to side so we had to block tires on one side. There were a couple trees that had low hanging branches that rubbed the motorhome. We had good satellite reception, but the trees will interfere with many sites. We had good Verizon cell/MiFi reception. This is a quiet and pleasant Army Corps of Engineers park. We would stay here again. - Dave51

This was a hidden gem! The campsites were very spacious. There were concrete pads at each site. Trees and grass made things feel very "campy." There was a marina and boat ramp on a lake. My only complaint was that we did not get a sewer hookup (other sites had them) and there was no Wifi available. These are not problems for weekend campers but for full-timers like us, it limits our stay considerably. The park administration building had a nature tree walk and there was a camp store onsite selling supplies, ice, and firewood. - Melodycthomas

This is a Park with two distinct areas. We're unable to comment about in the area over the tracks near the office as we did not tour those campsites. Our review is focused on the pull through sites near the state highway before you cross over the railroad tracks. Generally speaking they are grass/gravel sites. The road is hard packed gravel. The area has excellent drainage given the one night we were there. There was a tremendous rainstorm overnight in in the morning generally speaking there was very little mud and it was no standing water. It would appear that rows A and B are more defined as pull through sites. Row C is a pull through, however, then you pull out into a large field that you have to make a giant turn in order to exit. If you were at the end campsite C-1, the area immediately adjacent to your site becomes a drive-through for people pulling out from the other end. There are no facility buildings in this area of the campground. There is a dumpster at the far end. Registration can be a bit tricky. We chose after making Google satellite analysis to stop before the tracks and have someone walk up to the office in order to check in. While there is a turnaround circle near the office, it probably wouldn't be the easiest of turn with a large motorhome and a toad or a large 5er. I have to tell you that the office complex is one of the nicest architecturally designed buildings in any campground leave seen . They've created the small lounge a laundry facility very large store reception area and is adjacent to their pool. The store was minimally stocked with emergency camping supplies that one might need .
The sites when we were there were family oriented and generally speaking it was quiet. at our site power plug was in poor condition. Sewer top was missing and the pipe was angled making connections challenging. They had their Halloween party weekend and they had a band in the pavilion which was a little loud for a few hours if you weren't participating, but it certainly was a festive place. We did not see any hooliganism. - wdw

We enjoyed the Columbus Day weekend with many seasonal folks and while there was some rain all members of the crowd enjoyed a costume party, crowd singing and a family-oriented meal with considerable attendance. - Birdieman

This is an older park but they are doing their best to make everyone's stay pleasant. We were in the front in the big rig area which is basically a big open field in site of the road. The sites that are more shaded are very tight and would be hard for a large camper to navigate.
There was not much road noise at night, though there is a train that comes through blowing its horn every weeknight about 3 a.m., so that can be a little hard on your sleeping!
But we enjoyed our stay. They have all kinds of things for kids to do on the weekends and we would stay here again. It is convenient to Watkins Glen and Corning. It is very dog friendly also. - mary mcmoo

A very difficult entrance uphill with no signs to explain how to enter. The staff was "very short" with information, just not friendly. The back in sites were easy to access, but very level. The hook ups were centrally located. - Al and Anne-Marie
Jul 2012 - $50.00
This is a terrifically fun park for the kids. We camped here as our last stop on a 10-day camping trip and the kids did not want to leave. The facility has too many things to mention for the kids to do and all are included in the fee which seemed a little high until you see what you get with it. The rest rooms and showers were well-kept and the park was packed when we visited. The only negatives for me was the park gets very crowded to the point that you feel that there is not enough space between campers. Most of the sites were deep and narrow, not real ideal. We ended up with a site that had the sewer for our neighbor about 15' from our door. Not a huge deal, but would have preferred a little separation. And the roads are gravel so don't bother washing and waxing before coming here as you'll be leaving dirty. But that was the only negatives I could think of from a wonderful stay. My kids want to know when we are going back and I can't blame them. - tdslsmo

This park came highly recommended. However we booked it for 5 days and left on the 2nd day. This park was very run down and in great need of updates. The sites are way too close together, the neighbors septic hookup is only 1 foot away from our picnic table which is right up against our camper!! Our septic hookup was right beside our neighbors table. Although there is lots for kids to do the play grounds are in bad need of repair. There was tons of trash all over and there was no stone or grass on our site. Everywhere I looked there was mud. We will never come back here again. I can honestly say that this is the worst un-kept campground that we have ever been to. - emtjewel

We stayed at this park for a long weekend. Very kid friendly park with barrel train, bounce houses and crafts. The facility is very well maintained and staff is friendly and accommodating. One staff member even offered to pick up pizza for us in town. We had a nice large level lot but were unable to have 50 amp or sewer connection but offered on site pump out service for free. We also added cable option for $5 for entire stay which was reasonable. Excellent food in cafe and laundry also available. Nice hidden gem convenient to I-86. - Wiliard
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

Park can be a "tight squeeze" with big equipment. The roadway in the entrance has a 10 ton limit, and the roads are narrow. Be careful. However, once you get yourself situated, this is a well-patrolled park. Didn't observe any bad acting. Quiet and family safe. We are here now and the heat this summer in general and this week has been oppressive. Luckily the A loop site we are in has 50 amps. No water or sewer - sites across the way do on the water side.
Hiking trails are suitable for all age hikers. Little sandy beach area with pavilions is cute. There are several large group areas sprinkled around. Yurts and cabins look attractive. Wellsboro is a nice little spot with some shopping and rainy day destinations like a theatre and some nice restaurants- mom and pop and fine dining.
I hear the fishing is good but I've come up empty. Tackle Shack outside of Wellsboro is well stocked. - Johnboronkay

Well kept campground
Quiet, nice lake for swimming fishing or kayaking. - Frankie Z
Jun 2016 - $41.00
Rated this park low since we had trouble getting in & out of the park, along with having a problem with the roads within our camping loop. The main entrance to the park has a bridge with a 10 ton limit so we had to take a back route into the park over unpaved county roads. Once we got to our site we were able to back in with minimal issues to a large shady site. The road leading out of our site was twisting with trees close to the curves. The last curve we barely made it past a tree. I ended up having to cut some branches off of a tree to avoid scratching the sides of our motorhome. The park itself is nice. There is a small lake in the middle with a hiking trail around the water. Several spots to launch canoes or kayaks. On our site were were able to get a satellite signal along with a weak AT&T signal (using a booster it was OK). Strange numbering system for sites with missing "numbers" along the way; so be careful or you will drive past your site. DEFINITELY not big rig friendly. We would not use this campground again in our large rig. - Co-Mike

We took our grandchildren and daughters camping here and had plenty to keep all the kids busy. Normally most campgrounds have one jumping pillow but this one had TWO. The campsite was a very easy pull through and took no time to set up. We will be re-visiting. - dmlord

Our rate reflected a basic full hook up site. Geography at campground is mostly level and very lightly wooded. This is a full resort campground with enough amenities to keep families at the campground if they were to choose to. Our off season WiFi worked well, 3g signal on our Verizon cell phone. Professional and friendly staff. Expect noise from the local race track during day time hours. Also expect daily and sometimes nightly visits from the local freight train from across the street of the campground. Our site hookups were in good working order, noticed most power boxes seemed to be newer/updated. Most sites seemed relatively level. Interior roads & sites had crushed stone. Camp store seemed well stocked and was tastefully decorated. Bathrooms and showers were clean. Showers have plenty of hooks, space and a bench to put your stuff on. Noticed a multitude of site sizes and price ranges to accommodate the many different types of RV's. We enjoyed this campground and would certainly return or recommend this place to anyone. - mdcamping

Beautiful park would definitely stay again. The park itself has so much to do, you could just go to get away, but it was too cold to do anything outside in April.
Only problem, was the laundry area was too small. The equipment was old, there was no change machine. The dryers were 25 cents for 5 minutes! After using $10.25 worth of quarters, I ended up with undried laundry everywhere in the our rig. Not pleasant.
Lot spacing was spacious with some shade. Site surface was concrete pad, gravel and grass, featuring a fire ring, picnic table and patio - Disneydonna25

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
