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. We camped at Sned-Acres Family Campground in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Sned-Acres Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The park is about 30 minutes drive to Ithaca or Watkins Glen and of course a lot of wineries. Good central point if visiting the general area.

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. We camped at Sned-Acres Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Very friendly and accommodating owners and staff. They are welcoming and offer you some friendship bread when you check in. This is is a big campground with lots of empty green space. If you stand in the right spot, you can catch glimpses of Lake Cayuga. They have a small pool that was closed when we were visiting. It is in the country and very quiet. While we were there, we saw mostly adults and few children. The seasonal/long term sites are near/under the trees. The short term sites out in the open, slightly tiered, very unlevel, narrow, and gravel. We had to park our car sideways to fit but most others seemed to have enough room for their RV and car. Electric worked fine but the water pressure could be really low at times. DirecTV satellite worked great and Verizon had 4g and 3 bars. The Wi-Fi worked well or not at all. There are lots of farms in the area. Many are run by Mennonites or Amish. We were lucky to be there during strawberry season, and they were delicious! Ithaca has a huge farmer's market at various times during the week. We weren't there for the main growing season but I imagine it is quite full of produce in the late summer. There are also plenty of roadside stands selling eggs, honey, and produce. One disappointment was the lack of any fresh fish to buy - there are lakes, why aren't there fish? There are wineries, breweries, and distilleries. We enjoyed the hiking and waterfalls in the area. It is amazing how many waterfalls that are in the Finger Lakes! We camped at Sned-Acres Family Campground in a Motorhome.

Quiet park run by family. We used Passport America for 3 days, a bargain. It is a large park with seasonals in one area. We were up on the hill across the road. Very pleasant to stay here. It is on the wine trail and other distilleries. Would recommend it to our friends. We camped at Sned-Acres Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Not the nicest campground. We liked and used the pool. We enjoyed the Fourth of July weekend entertainment. The bathrooms and showers are not nice. Good location for local wineries and visiting Ithaca, Seneca Falls, and Watkins Glen. We camped at Sned-Acres Family Campground in a Motorhome.

We camped in a 25' travel trailer. We really enjoyed this quiet beautifuuly maintained campground with a small pond filled with bass. Just a short walk down to Cayuga Lake. The owners were very cordial and informative. And upon arrival, they even give you a small loaf of "Friendship Bread" that is so delicious and homemade by them. This is a great place to camp and then venture off to the north Seneca Falls region, or to the south, Ithica with all the waterfalls. Just a short drive to the west over to Seneca Lake. Bathhouse was clean and well maintained. Heated pool too! All in all we give this place a thumbs up! We camped at Sned-Acres Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

A very nice and large open campground with motorhomes backed up against a treeline that provides lots of shade through much of the day.

A select few sites with full-hookups are situated in a more open area with much less shade, but more privacy and closer to the pond. The sites are at times a little cramped but not too bad.

Our site was Water/Electric, and very close to the clean bathrooms and showers. The bathroom is interesting in that the ceiling is open throughout the building with tall walls that divide the womens/mens area; however, it is easy to hear what's going on in the other bathrooms or showers.

The saltwater Pool is situated in an open area with lots of sun. They do have umbrellas for shade and a nearby tree.

Playground is large with many homemade contraptions for the kids. Rec room is in a garage, which does require a fee to play billiards and few other arcade games. I think the ping-pong is free.

Huge bass pond with some very large bass (4lb+), though most were around a 12" or so.

Nature trail along the edge of forest line that goes down to a large gorge, which then branches into many gorges.

Owners are very friendly and made us Amish friendship bread.

The area is situated between two large finger lakes, of which are lined with all kinds of places to visit. The area gets an inordinate amount of sunshine compared to the rest of the state, given its unique mediterranean like micro-climate.

The place has a gentle, warm, sunny, nice feel to it. Everyone seemed very friendly too. We camped at Sned-Acres Family Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Watkins Glens State Park is nearby. Watkins Glen has numerous festivals and activities, and is quite touristy, with many out of state plates. There are numerous vineyards and places to sip wine or sample cheese. Lots of organic food stands. Hiking along the finger lakes. Letchworth State Park is not too far to the west. Many nearby waterfalls and gorges.

Lots of sun given its dry mediterranean like climate compared to the rest of the state.

Quiet park, small town. Basic W/E/S, pool, WiFi, only 1 W/D (but clean), has DVD rentals. Only has 4 spots with 50 amps, we got one. They are right in the heart of the "wine country" so it's popular around here, as well as weekends are tough because Watkins Glen isn't far and racing is done on then (as well as the lakes are popular I guess. Found it very difficult to get reservations over the weekend anywhere around here. I was surprised they offered Passport Amer! Nice people. We camped at Sned-Acres Family Campground in a Motorhome.

Family oriented site clean and neat grounds. Most sites level, nice pool. Only complaint was showers, very low water pressure. Play ground for children was well structured. Located in the middle of the Finger Lakes area, about 30 minutes from several historical sites in the area. Numerous vineyards to visit along with several nice restaurants. We camped at Sned-Acres Family Campground in a Motorhome.

The pipe to the urinal came off, cascading water all over the side. The faucet handle at the sink came off. Instead of fixing the toilets they have signs that say "hold down the knob until everything is gone." And the showers lose all pressure at the end of the row. There wasn't anything that didn't have a problem. Wow. We camped at Sned-Acres Family Campground in a Tent.

A very nice mom & pop area with a dedicated area for overnighters or short termers. They have a small pool and a nice play area for children and a nice table/chair area for families. I understand they have some cookouts periodically. Laundry was sufficient and fairly priced. As weather was a bit poor and we got in late, the manager allowed my wife to stay after normal closing and lock the door as she left. We appreciate her doing that. Our site was level enough and services were good and well placed. We had several trees between us and the next RV. It is well cared for and maintained. It is no "resort" but is a great place for a night or two. For that reason, I gave it a 10. We camped at Sned-Acres Family Campground in a Motorhome.

Our rate reflects 5 days at Passport America rates and 2 days with a military discount. This park was quiet and very comfortable. The owners were exceptionally friendly and said hello daily. The pool was heated, but still cool and there are many pieces of outdoor playground equipment for children. The campground was central to many of the wineries and close to several state parks that we toured. We will return to this campground. We camped at Sned-Acres Family Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice park with acres of beautiful green mowed grass for our little dog to run around in. They have a lot of facilities and activities for families with children. The managers are a very nice and helpful couple. We were in site 54 which is a nice, level site which overlooks the swimming pool and a large grass field. Just a couple of negatives. There are no dump facilities on site. You have to take your trash out of the campground, across the highway, to a dumpster. That is kind of a pain. We have been in RV parks where they picked up trash bags in front of your site every day. The only other negative is the road entering the campground is a mud hole in rainy weather, which it was while we were there. In any case we would definitely stay here again if we are in the vicinity. We stayed three days, two of which were Passport America. We camped at Sned-Acres Family Campground in a Motorhome.
