Beautiful view of Lake Ontario. Staff was warm and welcoming. Good wifi, & cable. We would walk across the road for ice cream and the most fabulous sunsets you can imagine. Definitely will return. - Lunchy

This was a nostalgia stay for me. I had stayed here, in their small Cabins, back in the early 80's during a trip to the Syracuse Dirt Modified race. To my surprise the Campground was still there.
We stayed here one night in a 30 amp, water, sewer back-in site that was right across the street from Lake Ontario. All the utilities worked well, including the WiFi. The staff was very friendly and helpful.
While the Campground is small, mostly grass sites (level) it's big plus is it's location and the fantastic Sunsets across Lake Ontario.
As another person mentioned, there is no beach or boardwalk, but there are a number of picnic tables across the street along the shore at an Ice Cream Stand and grass areas to take your own chairs to watch the sun set.
We will return in the future. - Russ G

Nice campground in a great location across the street from Lake Ontario and adjacent to Oswego College. - Appleknocker

We stayed here for 3 nights while attending the Sterling Renaissance Fair. Staff was friendly and helpful. Park is pretty basic, with no pull-through sites. There is no Wi-Fi here either. Sites were level enough, but rather soft and my levelers sunk in a bit. W/S/E all worked very well. Park is quiet and worked well for us. Being 5 miles from the Fair went a long way in overlooking some of the shortcomings. - BounderPounder

This is a very nice campground located 4 miles south of town. Sites are all back-in; some more level than others. Lots of trees and plenty of grass with newer looking picnic tables. Campground is clean and appears well-maintained. All utilities are located at the back of the site. Owners are not always on site, so make reservations or contact the park if you are planning on staying. - DiplomatTraveler

Excellent park. Three miles to Lake Ontario. Level sites, some open (satellite friendly) and some shaded. 4 cabins available as well as tent spaces. Lots are spacious compared to other parks in the area. Spaces could easily accommodate 45 foot rigs. Park was neglected for some time due to family health issues but management is busily getting it back into shape. No playground, but plenty of room for kids to run and roam. Beautiful covered pavilion. This park is now my preferred place to stay while visiting family in area. - davedopp

If you are looking for a safe, quiet place to sleep while going from east-to-west NY this will do. Fulton is near the top of central NY so does not get much rv traffic. This is a city park. Hit it in dry season so everything looked dead. Warnings everywhere not to swim in the lake or allow animals anywhere near the water. Permanent problem with blue algae, which can cause ALS. Most of campers appeared to be lower income, permanent residents. However everyone was plenty friendly and staff was helpful. Probably least appealing campground we have used, but decent enough. Fulton is on the Erie Canal, has interesting history. - Mike from Bama

Friendly park in a quiet area conveniently close to town. Lake is not swim-able but has excellent fishing and boating. Entrance road is paved and campground roads are gravel. Grassy, treed, large, easy access sites with smaller sites on the waterfront. Several docks for fishing and boating with a large concrete boat ramp next to a large parking lot with plenty of room for boat trailers. Has a wooded path leading to State Route 3 for walking/biking access to a mini-golf course, the YMCA and several restaurants. - Appleknocker

Mostly seasonal camps but adequate for the basics if you're passing through. Not a lot of sites available for short stays but they are very lenient with pets, children, etc. No organized rec, but the beach is nice (rocky on the shores of Lake Ontario). Prices moderate. If you want to camp and just be left "alone" this is a great place to visit. Unlike state parks you can get water and electric hookups here and septic service is available as well. Very nice small marina with excellent fishing. Camp store has only the basics, but the campground is only minutes from the grocery store. Sandy access roads but they are stable for RV driving and relatively easy to navigate. The oldest family owned campground in Oswego County. - FleisM

This is a huge New York state park with several camping areas that are really spread out from each other. The campground with electricity is called the Bluff Camping Area. It is a wooded area on the top of a high bluff with a steep road going to it. Next to it on the bluff is the Lakeview Camping Area which overlooks Lake Ontario and has 2 electric sites on either side of the restrooms. The beautiful wide, long sand beach was about ½ mile from our campsite. There is a lovely pond (that is connected to the lake by a channel) with swans, ducks and geese and a place to rent or put in your small boat for paddling around. There is a boat launch on Little Sodus Bay (that borders the park) for boats that arrive on trailers and a dock for tying them up. There are cabins to rent here as well. The town of Fair Haven is very close to the park. Our site was large, and level and very shaded. - ShoreXplorers

Fair Haven Beach was a beautiful spot, although we were somewhat bothered by extremely hungry insects. Our site (#79) was level, but slightly damp. Bathhouse was older, but well kept and the water for showers was plentiful and hot. It was a bit over a mile's walk from our site to the beach, but the walk was lovely. The only negative was that the "view" of Lake Ontario from the bluff area was mostly obscured by over-grown vegetation on the lake side of the chain-link fence. It would be nice if the park maintenance crew could cut the weeds down so that people could see the fantastic view. - spencersmom

We got very lucky and reserved only days before the 4th of July weekend. We reserved the 3rd and 4th online, and were able to book the 5th when we arrived, so we had three wonderful nights there. There were plenty of places to walk - which we like to do - and then have ice cream at the park store next to the swimming beach. We would definitely camp at Fair Haven again, and regard it as one of the nicest parks in New York State. - GaryCamper

Visited just after busy season. Very friendly and helpful staff. Not crowded tho if busy some sites are close together,quiet and clean. No on-site water but fill station located near entrance(you may wait in line a bit)and many container fill faucets located near sites. Picnic table located on concrete pad. Large fire pits are located close to roadside. Wood available at store and reasonably priced,$6 half wagon(provided)$12 full. Also offer on-site delivery for larger loads. Would recommend a full size ax to cut as some pieces quit large. Store also has many camping items at fair pricing. Restrooms were clean and well lighted. - Willburr

Full hookup sites are in loops around grassy fields. Our site 33 was large and shaded for the afternoon, a real plus with no A/C. Loops A and B were much less busy. There is a real nice network of biking trails right from the campground. Washroom building was old but they make an effort to keep it clean. Hot water with good pressure. Swimming beach open Fri, Sat, Sun with lifeguard. - Darleen

Selkirk Shores is a very popular campground in the Oswego, NY area - when we stayed there the campground was *completely full* on Friday and Saturday nights. We stayed in a site with electrical service, which worked fine. Sites are TINY, barely 30x20 feet; our tow vehicle wouldn't fit in the site with our 21 foot hybrid. The neighbor's campfire circle was almost under our camper, which made me more than a little nervous. Not the place to stay if you're not interested in a VERY social camping experience. Bathrooms were relatively new and kept reasonably clean, but due to apparent sewage problems didn't smell very good. Selkirk used to have a beach, but it's been closed for several years, though they do give you free access to the beach at another state park nearby. Essentially nothing to do at the park except fish in the Salmon River; there are no trails for hiking, no swimming, and no marina. - nextcube

This was one of the first parks we have ever stayed in, and it was the best: friendly people and owner, easy in and out and very, very quiet. Not a lot for young kids to do, no activities. But very clean and a great place to stay: we will be back. - Chessie

We stayed here 2 nights. It is a quiet family oriented park that has quite a few long term campers. It has dirt/gravel interior roads and sites are mainly level. All sites are under tall trees and the park is on a hillside and hilltop with a lovely view of green, rolling hills and pastures. There is no cable TV but we pulled in 7 stations via antennae. There is no WiFi or internet modem available. On Saturday night the owners brought in entertainment and had a live oldies/rock band come in and play outdoors under a tent down near the office. A lot of residents went out, sat under the stars on picnic tables and folding chairs to listen. The band was extremely loud and annoying to those of us who didn't want to listen. The owners are super nice and overall the grounds are neat. Bathrooms are nice and neat and the shower stalls are unisex individual rooms that are separate from the toilet area. There aren't many restaurants in the area however we found outstanding pizza at a local pizza eatery that had a wonderful huge old fashioned pizza oven. They have no website that I have been able to locate. - Bookwormonwheels

Very clean with plenty of space. It is a long way from convenient stores, but is in a good location for fishing. About half of the sites are seasonal. - Chuck and Jane

Stayed here for Memorial Weekend.
Checking in was very disorganized for RV pull-ins. The staff was rude and uninviting.
The number of golf-carts speeding around the campground was ridiculous and our children could barely ride their bikes around without getting yelled at by drivers because bikes are slow.
Vehicles would speed through at night making all sorts of noise and coolers and beer were getting stolen throughout the campsite.
The sites were close and the water pressure was very low and you have to rent a box now for tv that stated it was included with the site.
Staff did not have answers to common questions such as when the on site store closes.
There is no access to the campground if you leave after certain hours.
The pools were not open and were disgusting, fire pit rings were small brake drums and there were no activities for children.
They shut off the water on the day of check-out without warning us which delayed us cleaning up and being able to dump the rv sewer/gray water.
The beach showers did not work properly then were shut off completely instead of being fixed while bathhouse showers did not work properly and stalls were not private.
You also had to pay if you wanted internet that was supposed to be included. - User2698

This is a very large RV resort roght on Lake Onterio. Many of the sites are seasonal sites for trailers, 5th wheels and Park Models that are located close to the Lake. The other sites for non-seasonal short term stays are closer to the enterance to the park a little ways from the Lake. They have spaceous pull-thru sites with full hookups, a concrete pad with a picnic table, fir pit and cable TV. There are a lot of trees and plenty of grass that make for a very pleasant setting. As this park is a ways off of the highway it is very quiet. They have a large "social center" with several pools, a play area for kids, a restaurant, a store and a stage for bands/entertainment on weekends. At the beach they have a snack bar and picnic tables overlooking the Lake. Our $19 rate reflects our RPI membership. - Michael Kibler

We got 2 weeks free camping with RV purchase so I don't know price. Staff was excellent when we arrived. They told us to park where we wanted to and call with number. Site was big with a nice concrete slab and full hookup. Cable worked well. We walked to the beach and it was very nice. Lots of seating. I had read that someone complained about too many rocks on the beach, but they were pretty rocks and lots of people were "shelling for rocks". There was still lots of sand. The reviews I had read were fairly negative, but we found it to be great! Neat, clean, nice sites and nice people. I would recommend parking a little further away from the main road, that's a little noisy, but otherwise I really liked this place! 50 amp service worked great. - Ginny H

For us, this is another campground that is OK for an overnight or at most a couple of days if you need to do something in the area. Access roads from the interstate (I-81) are good 2 lanes, but the campground is somewhat out of the way. Roads in the campground are dirt in near poor condition. We found mostly seasonal occupancy but most units were in good condition and reasonably well kept. There are also several park models. The swimming pool is across the road at the associated motel complex as is the office for RV check-in. Utilities were adequate. Campground was quiet at night. It was raining when we were there and we noted quite a few low areas within the sites that contained standing water as did the roads. The sites are advertised as being gravel but all we could see were grass. Sites appear to be reasonably level. TV reception with off-air antenna was decent. There were no Satellite dishes in view anywhere and we did not attempt to use ours. We would probably try to find another campground in the area that might be more convenient. - dogman

Cannot figure out why this campground was rated so high. It has no bathrooms or showers and the laundry is in a shed. No cable or wifi. There are very few transient spots and they are in the middle of a grass field. - har-fl

Rate reflects monthly rate. This is our 2nd year staying in this park. Park is very clean, neat and well kept. Very friendly campers from nighty to monthly to seasonals. Sites are grassy and very level. Wifi is good. Laundry room is very good and reasonably priced. Electricity is priced at 20 cents per kilowatt hour, fairly expensive in our experience as full time rvers. Divots Restaurant is on premises and is a nice restaurant with a somewhat limited menu. It's about equidistant between Syracuse and Watertown. Pulaski is about 5 miles to the north and has decent shopping, a few decent restaurants. Our only complaint would be the mail service. There are mailboxes at the road for the campground, cost $25 for the season. We have had nothing but problems from the mail carriers, they just can't seem to get our mail in our box. This has been ongoing for the 3 months we have been here this year. This is not the fault of the campground, it comes down to very poor USPS service. - dthurk

This campground literally is in the middle of a golf course and had very spacious sites, especially for a commercial campground. The only real negative about this park is that the sites are grass with a little gravel as a base. The roadways are asphalt, at least, and the place is very well kept. There are some permanent and seasonal residents, but the sites seem to be kept up nicely and the few I met were very friendly. The best thing about this place was the super clean and fairly new equipment in the laundry! The machines looked so clean I first thought they might be new. There are 4 washers and 4 dryers in a small shed that also had a sink and big fan for the heat, plus two chairs. In addition, the price was a bargain for all full hookup sites and they even have a two-night special that includes 9 holes of golf for an extra $15. This is not a destination resort, but it was a convenient and pleasant place for an overnight or two, especially if you like to golf. - judy_online
