We stopped here overnight on the way to somewhere else. It is much more suited to longer term stays, with a beautiful rustic setting, quiet & isolation and nice pond & fishing & water toys. Electric & Water, Roads and pads were all just fine. Owners were friendly and attentive. No OTA TV or cable available (2 channels were intermittent). Showers/bathroom are clean but showers cost 50 cents per five minutes... Ditto wifi....you have to log on to a private service at $3 a day but it gave us good service. I'd say 80% of the sites are seasonal campers but it is still a fine place to spend the night for those who like camping rather than RV parks. We camped at Country Hills Campground in a Motorhome.

Great stopover. Nice level pull-through, gravel roads in great shape. Campground has lots of seasonals, and quite a few transient sites, and is immaculate. Owners are extremely friendly, guide you to your site, and RV themselves. Over the air TV from Cortland was fine. No Wi-Fo due to the rural area. Follow campground directions, not your GPS. We camped at Country Hills Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

A nice CG off the interstate which makes it very quiet. Owners certainly give a lot of attention to the grounds and were welcoming upon arrival. The seasonal units surround the lake but everyone has some access for catch and release fishing. WES all worked fine. GPS takes you down a small road (Tannery) which may be a little troublesome for big rigs. Keep going straight and it goes to the campground. Wifi is available at a nominal daily charge which is unusual in this day. Would certainly stay again. Over night sites not exciting, but more than suitable for an overnight. We camped at Country Hills Campground in a Motorhome.

Owners are extremely nice and outgoing. They take a complete interest in the grounds and the campers and it shows. Beautiful scenery, abundant walking trails, quiet and very relaxing. Above the rest in service, firewood and food delivered to your site with great prices. Bath houses are clean and plenty of water. Seasonals are held to a high standard to maintain the look and feel of the park. One of the best maintained campgrounds we have stayed at. Thoroughly enjoyed our week here and recommend it for an overnight, extended or even season if that is appropriate! We camped at Country Hills Campground in a Motorhome.

The configuration of this campground is a bit off-putting - at first the RVs seems parked every which way - leaving one to assume mis-management - which is not the case. The owners live on site and are hands on. They charge for guests either by the car load or per person - seemed chintzy to me but this may be an East Coast thing. Food was good and reasonably priced. Some long-term seasonal residents - some maintain the trailers well, others not so much. An OK place to stop for one night. We camped at Country Hills Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Roads were under construction when we were there - when the owner provides directions - follow them.

Looking for an overnight stop, this was a nice surprise. It was a bit away from our route, but worth the 2-3 extra miles. Attractive, grassy, level sites around a large pond. Most were seasonals. No cable, but decent antenna reception. FHU. Well maintained campground. Owners offered very good hamburgers or pizza (both freshly made in their home) for a good price. Nice to have when we arrived tired and hungry. We would definitely stay there again. We camped at Country Hills Campground in a Motorhome.

Stopover for one night and could not ask for friendlier owners. They brought us to our site, made us pizza, and were wonderful. We had a flat tire so we checked in after 8 PM and they were amazing! A lot of seasonals but all sites well kept. The only reason they didn't get 10 was the roads need work leading up to campground. Very big pot holes, and being a big rig roads are very narrow.

The owners went out of their way to be friendly and helpful. More then half of the sites are seasonal campers. The campground was very quiet even though it was 4th of July weekend. The roads are dirt/gravel but are kept pretty smooth. We stayed here in a coach with a towed. Our site was pretty level side to side and front to back. We hitched the towed after pulling out of the site due to the steepness of the drive coming out of the site back onto the camp road. the back bumper of the bus was about 6' above the ground while making this manuver from the site we were in. the water quality was good but the pressure was a bit low. We boosted it with filling our tank and keeping our water pump on. The bathrooms were sufficient and showers were coin operated. I did not use them, but did look in there just to check it out. The smell of the farm up the hill did not bother me. I love farm animals. The smell of a farm on a dewey morning is expected at 'Country Hills CG'.

We camped here for one night on our way down to D.C. Quiet place with mostly seasonal campers, friendly people. There is a small pond but you can't swim in it. We camped at Country Hills Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This was a fine campground. We stayed over a weekend (Fri & Sat evening), arriving around 5 pm. Check-in was quick and the owner escorted us to a nice level site overlooking the lake. Owners were friendly and courteous, making us feel welcome as soon as we arrived. Showers and bathrooms were very clean. The showers are coin-operated, so bring quarters on your first trip down there. :-) You'll probably need a $1.00's worth. The roads leading to the campground are NY county roads, running through some hilly country, so expect them to be twisty and low speed. When we stayed, the campground was full with big RVs. It seems to also be a popular place for seasonal rentals. Since we had a popup, we got a pick of sites in an area seeming set aside for smaller campers and RVs. We will definitely stay there again. We camped at Country Hills Campground in a Tent Trailer.

80-85% of the park is occupied by semi-permanent/seasonal residents with built up decks around the RV/Trailer, storage building units. However, the area was fairly clean around these areas. The interior park roads are basically packed dirt which would probably be fine after an extended period of dry weather. Unfortunately, the night we stayed had been proceeded by several days of rain and as a result the park roads were barely passable. The pull through sites underlying gravel/dirt were grossly inadequate to provide a stable base for a class A motorhome. We had a great deal of difficulty leveling even after placing large sections of 2x12 under the jacks. The site was so unstable we had serious doubts about being able to pull out of the site in the morning. We did manage to get out, but our previously clean MH looked like we had used it as an off-road ATV. We would certainly have appreciated a phone call from the Owners in advance of our arrival advising of the conditions. We were advised a few days later that the park was only recently purchased by the current owners who were very nice. We would like to believe that they may not have fully appreciated the problems with the pull through sites particularly during the wet part of the New York spring. It's difficult to present the above review given the very nice owners, but the purpose of these reviews is to convey the facts to prospective campers. We camped at Country Hills Campground in a Motorhome.

The country road leading to the campground is a very rough. After checking in, you are escorted to your site. If using one of the pull-thru sites, you have to circumvent the lake on a very narrow dirt road with some pot holes. The site was wide, long, & level and had no obstruction to satellite reception. The lake is encircled by seasonal trailers, some of which have seen better days. The owners are very friendly. Weekly rate was $180 plus electricity. Nice campground for viewing the Fall foliage as they stay open late into the season. We would stay here again. We camped at Country Hills Campground in a Motorhome.

About 4 miles off I-81 with some county roads that need a little work. Owners live on site, very helpful and escort you to site. Grass sites, good lengths and easy in and out. Stayed overnight while traveling. Quiet. Will top again. We camped at Country Hills Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here only one night, in the rain, on the way to our destination. The owner was very friendly and helpful, escorting us to our site. Because of the weather we couldn't make much judgement on this campground but it appeared to be mostly seasonal campers and well-kept grounds. We camped at Country Hills Campground in a Motorhome.
