2 Parks near Owego, New York
Aug 2015 - $28.00
This park is truly off the beaten path. It is very secluded, and has miles of walking trails.
It is difficult to get to, as there is a steep washed out driveway. If you have 4 wheel drive- low range, that is a plus. The owners are very friendly and helpful.
We stayed there for a week in September, 2014 and it was one of the most relaxing weeks we have had in a long time.
There are no sewer hookups, and the dump station looks very hard to get to.
If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle, and back to nature, this is the place to do it. There is a laundry in Candor, and a little ways further is the sweet little town of Owego. - Jimal

The Hickories Park has 4 or 5 large pavilions, and many, campsites. There are sites that have full hookups, electric, water and sewer, all the way down to primitive tent sites. On some of the sites, the hookups are kind of strange, however they are workable.
Within 3 miles, there are restaurants, stores and gas. The park is close to Rt. 86, (Southern Tier Expressway), but doesn't have excessive noise from it. Unless you are camped by the Susquehanna, in which case, the highway is very close.
It has many pluses: Easy to get to. Fairly level sites, some pull-thru sites, cost; $ 25 a night for 30 amp, $30 a night for 50 amp, close to stores and gas. They have monthly and seasonal rates. There are showers and rest rooms. Kids like to trash them, however they are cleaned every morning and as a rule pretty good.
There is no WIFI, or cable, but there is a McDonald's just out of the park with free unsecured WIFI. There are many TV stations from the antenna.
It is first come, first serve. Get there early if there is anything going on locally.
There is an active railroad close by, and when the trains are westbound, they like to lean on the horn before entering Owego. There is a facility not far from it that builds and tests helicopters, and sometimes they fly over it. If you like helicopters, it's quite a spectacle sometimes. During the summer, there is almost always something going on, from concerts to car shows and craft shows. Owego has a downtown made for walking, with many stores, shops and eateries. There are quite a few places to park. They have a River walk that is very nice.
Bottom line: Nice! - Jimal

Very nice campground within a community park along the Susquehanna River. Site 57 is a 30 amp full hookup site; 50 amp service is available at other sites. Good Verizon cell/MiFi service and good OTA television reception for those channels within range. We stayed seven nights while visiting family and will return. - Dave51

Campground is located in a town park that has a lot of local use i.e. picnickers, school outings, dog walkers, joggers, soccer & baseball games, summer concerts, car shows etc. Paved roads with lots of lawn and some shaded sites. Great location on the Susquehanna river near the touristy village of Owego. We were here for the annual Strawberry Festival the third weekend in June which draws upwards of 30,000 people to this small village for lots of live music, strawberry shortcake, wine tasting,fireworks, many food vendors and a general good time. A note of caution to people considering a long term stay is a monthly rate is for 28 days. We would definitely stay here again. - Appleknocker
