Large family run campground in Ovid which is in the heart of wine country in the Fingerlakes region. The grounds were mowed but beds were overgrown and area surrounding the buildings was cluttered. There is an old cemetery within the campground. We didn't use the showers; the restrooms were fairly clean but somewhat primitive and had an odor despite being cleaned daily. Our site was level, water pressure was adequate and fire rings were provided. Wifi was good and free. We could not get any television stations while there. No discounts were available when we were there in July. - mghow

Nice private campground. Sites are close together but long so your tow vehicle still fits on the site without weird parking. Your awning will nearly touch the next camper. The fire rings are positioned behind the site rather than beside. The sewer connection was too high for me to use (low trailer). The pool is OK...quite small and well used. Not much sitting room for non-swimmers. The seasonal sites are well separated from the transients. The playground equipment is dated, but a good number of kids including mine used it anyway. If you don't need the pool or the playground, the get a site across the road from the office. The sites are terraced and quieter. - WineStream

37 foot Motorhome. July 2017. Park is located near Cayuga Lake near Ovid New York. Park is easy to get to and navigation within the park is adequante. Transient parking is seperate from seasonal and the drive through are long and not crowded. There is no shade and you have a long side facing the afternoon sun, gets pretty warm. Not much for view, there is a small pool and a couple of ponds and a little used frisbee golf field. Services were adequate. They do offer free wifi that is adequate, can get slow depending on how busy the park is. No cable but there is good over air with about 1o channels. The park is situated in the middle of wine country of the Finger Lakes region. You are within an hour of several wineries, Ithaca, Watkins Glen and other small towns. Would stay again even though the rates were a little high for services but is within the norm for that region. - gargoyle

The camp is very well located if you are interested in exploring the Finger Lakes wineries. It is small and very unassuming, which we like. We tend to avoid the "mega-campgrounds". Most of the sites are occupied by seasonal campers so availability of sites is very limited. The best site is #1 for non seasonal camping. Plenty of space and not overlooking anyone else. There is no privacy, the sites are pretty much one next to the other.
We love the private beach and lake access. Very romantic and quiet. We would definitely stay there again sure we decide to go back to the Finger Lakes. - Catalina W

Based on our experience so far, this is a typical northern New York campground. Out of 20 RV sites, all but 4 were occupied by seasonals. The 3 sites available for transients are tight for large rigs. We were in a 34 motorhome and it was very difficult to maneuver into site 20. Site 20 and 1 are the only 2 sites with any hope of getting a satellite signal from your rooftop. The site are grass and dirt, with a little gravel thrown around where you park your RV. A 4G Verizon signal was present, but data speeds were very slow. The campground appeared to have a wifi signal, but we didn't use it. Firewood was reasonably priced. A walk down a fairly steep hill got you to Lake Seneca. There are boat docks available.
The most interesting part was the quarter mile drive down a narrow gravel road with several blind corners. There is no room for vehicles to pass one another.
This is a good area to base camp for Watkins Glen, Geneva, Hammondsport and many wineries and breweries. The daily rate reflects the weekly price. Per day it is $30. Per week it is $180 in spite of what their website says.
The sites are tight. Our windshield was about 3 feet from the back end of the motorhome in front of us.
If you are gong to stay here, disconnect your Toad at the scenic overlook on Highway 14 near Randall Crossing Road. Use your toad to run interference going down the narrow gravel road to warn off any on coming traffic. - FnEJ

We had a back in Site 34 in Loop 1 with 30 AMP. You have to fill up your water tank near the dump station. There is no sewer hookup. The showers and bathrooms were clean and tiled. The park is huge with a beach along Seneca Lake, biking trails, and a game room for the kids. Basketball & tennis courts, and a marina and boat launch are on the huge park grounds. The road to the camp sites is rough, so drive slow. Loops 1, 2 and 3 have better level sites. Loop 5 is horribly unlevel down by the lake. It was a quiet campsite and we enjoyed staying here. The staff was helpful and very nice. If your RV is over 12 feet high, ask for directions to the park. There is a low level train track on the way south to the park. There is an air museum on the grounds. Our site had trees for shade. If in the area again, we would definitely return to stay at Sampson State Park. - Lindy White

Sampson state park is a large, gorgeous park right on the lake and located in the middle of many wineries. I stayed in loop two and found the sites to be large and partially shaded. Apparently, I did not read the campsite description when booking the site. It only had 30 amp electric and nothing else. I was easily able to fill my freshwater tank, hence no problem, and used the pump out facilities at my next stop - again no problem. My only criticism would be the electrical pedestal was old and the 20 amp outlet showed evidence of arcing. The 30 amp outlet was fine. I would highly recommend this campground and would return anytime I was in the area. - DMiner54

Pros: large open spaces, clean beach with life guards, concession stand with beer, museum, kite flying, & good geocaching within the park Cons: no WiFi, sites not level on loops 4 & 5, no water & sewer hookups.
This site and adjacent were very wet due to the significant rain fall which limits how you can park your campers and vehicles. It takes at least 3 - 2" x 4" slabs to level the one side of the trailer on this site and you will need an additional step to get onto your trailer stairs. We were prepared because we have stayed on this site before. - Cindy_M

We called & met the owner, the place was more like an open field adjacent to large farm land -- somewhat isolated, though there were several long-term camp units further in, under the trees; we wanted satellite reception, so parked out on the long access road leading into the place. We stayed here in late season, after Labor Day, wanted water & electric hook-ups; we are/were 50' long, with 30' fifth wheel.. We will stay here, again -- likely in Oct. - Don_F

We had a non-hookups site (no electric, no water, no sewer), and for that no-frills site I thought the price was a little steep. Also steep was the site itself. Steep and narrow. It was not impossible to back into it, but it was a little challenging. Add the un-trimmed tree branches overhead, and you can see that I had my hands full. The campground itself was peaceful and comfortable. It was very woodsy (which I like). There was a hiking trail right at the back of our site, which meant constant foot traffic all day on the nice day we were there. That's fine. I like seeing people out enjoying nature. It also made it convenient when I wanted to take the hike too. The lakeshore part of the park is in a whole different area. That area is really spacious, and gives a lot of options of activities. Fishing, swimming (in season), boating, lawn activities. Really nice. Of course the falls are the main attraction, and they did not disappoint. - eduJamesE

Bathrooms were a bit dirty. Campsites were nice and private, not too crammed together. Easy walk down a long flight of stairs to get to the trailhead to the falls. - BeeNbop

We stayed two nights at this state park on the southern shore of Cayuga Lake in the Finger Lakes Region of NY. There were 78 sites, many not level, in the woods with clean bathhouses including showers. A number of water spigots in the two loop camping area. The camping area is not easy to find. One needs to stop by the park office on the lake side of 89 to register then head north for a little bit and find the park road and start to head up. The camping road will be on the left. If you reach the parking area for the falls you have gone too far. There is also a parking area on 89 for the lower falls. A number of trails to the falls and one can be found at the end of loop two in the campground. Check-in was easy and we enjoyed our stay even though it was a rainy day. The falls are considered one of the outstanding natural attractions of the northeast. They plunge 215 feet over rocky cliffs into the gorge, and what a fantastic sight it is. There is a picnic area, swimming and boat dock with slips on the lake side of 89. The park is also used for cross country skiing, sledding and skating. Summer concerts are held on the lake side. We would return to camp here. - gsnakehill

This park is in a great location. Very near to lots of activities such as Ithaca and Watkins Glen. The park itself could use a serious clean up. The sites are a bit overgrown; I don't think they've been 'weed wacked' in a while. The site number signs could use a coat of fresh paint along with the signage out on the road. The bathrooms and showers....well, they should be bulldozed and rebuilt. The owners/staff were super helpful about the area and very friendly. We spoke with several of the full timer's and they were great as well. Overall a mixed campground. Great potential but needs some help. - techieguy

Jammed with people on the weekend. Better during the week. People's sites are trashy looking. Mostly dirt and pot holes in roads. No water pressure. Mgmt was nice and allowed us to change sites so we would have mostly grass. Could be nice because property is beautiful with lots of trees but would need a good clean up of seasonal or permanent sites and not putting sites on top of each other. - Mmd57

Very nice family park. Very quiet at night. Everyone seemed to be having a good time. - rhn5595

We were first directed to a space that had just been vacated by a seasonal renter. The Park obviously did not check the site as the sewer connection was broken and the power had a bad ground, shocking my wife when she touched the water pipe. Once we were moved to a better space, all was well. Nice staff. Good price.
The Harbor isn't much to speak of, as it was surrounded by long term renters, and well-weeded. Restrooms were spartan but functional. The area doesn't drain well when it rains, which it did. Walking to the restroom was a shoe-soaker. - Kvw613

This is a nice park right on the river but only seasonals have the waterfront sites; over-nighters have a choice of pull-thru spaces with water and electric OR easy back-in sites with full hookups. The park has both shady and sunny sites, some more level than others, and most with plenty of space in between. Large trees and green grass make it very pleasant. There are rigs of all sizes here. Wifi was strong (the manager said they just boosted the signal) and Verizon at full strength. We were at the park for two days/two nights and had no complaints at all. Staff (Mathew) was friendly and helpful. There is a nice walking path down to the river's edge and all kinds of "person-powered" water craft to rent. Seneca Falls and the drive around the finger lakes is quite nice. - alm

This is a city park operated by the City of Lancing. It is on a lake/river. The sites are gravel and level. The power was stable & the water was good, On a summer Sunday afternoon, the park was very crowded and the campground was mostly full. The sites are very close to one another. The campsites are unshaded, but because DirecTV satellites are low in the horizon, tall trees in center of park blocked a signal. There are only 2 OTA stations available. The Verizon signal good. I would stay again, but only for an overnight, perhaps two. - SunStar203

What a gem. Surprised that Myers Park hasn't been reviewed before. A town park located right on Cayuga Lake! No pool but who needs it when you have the lake? Sites are at back of park, but can see a little from sites and easy walk. Our site (#11) required a couple boards to level but overall fairly level. Reservations REQUIRED; you must call during business hours. Only campground in county directly on the lake. About 2 1/2 miles to some shopping and 5 miles to good shopping (restaurants, groceries, hardware, etc), 10 miles to downtown Ithaca. Wonderful onsite host. "Bathroom" near camping are a couple porta-potties, flush and showers in the swimming area. Train behind park runs twice a day - on most days. - BandD

A bare bones campground. The electric side has only 30 or so sites, some without water, and many taken up by tent campers. Campground roads are tight and sites are small. If you have a rig much bigger than 30' you'll have trouble stuffing yourself in here. The East/electric side backs up to a busy county road - lots of traffic noise. The big plus is the direct lake access, just a short walk from the East loop. Nice swimming beach at the lake with a lifeguard and big bath house. We used Cayuga Lake State Park as an overnight stop, and there are probably better choices in the area. - Flying Mantis

Was a nice quiet campground, large site, but was listed as partial shade and it should have been listed as full sun as it was very hot. It was not an electric site, so air conditioning was on only during the hours I could use the generator (9 to 11 am & 5 to 9 pm). The campgrounds were clean with pretty large sites. There was some nice biking we could do in the area. Our site was large, nice and level, and easy to back into. - Garand1

Sites are level, accessible and each contains picnic table and fire pit, shared water. Our one complaint about this park is that they still have not addressed their power problem. Voltage at the sites runs 131 and spikes to 133 & 134. Our Surge Supressor was constantly tripping. Park people when informed, acknowledged the problem, however said the only people reporting problems are ones with newer rv's(ones with sophisticated Power Mgmt Systems). We came up with some workarounds- shutting off power at night, running air conditioner during the day.The power issue was a real problem and based on that we would probably not return here. - vt3fan
