No discount rate offered for our 21 night stay. We spent two nights on site 65 and 19 nights on site 41. Site 65 is a grass site located on the lower level near the river and offers 50 amps and water hookup, but no sewer. The rate for 50 amp electric is $30. Site 41 is a paved site located on the outer loop of the upper level that offers 30 amp, water and sewer. The rate for 30 amp electric is $25. Both sites were large, but we preferred site 41. All sites on the upper level are paved, but the pavement is old and too short for many motorhomes or long trailers. We had good Verizon cell/MiFi reception and good satellite reception at site 41. Hickories Park is owned by the Town of Owego and is very well maintained. We would stay here again. We camped at Hickories Park in a Motorhome.

Very nice city park. We were able to drive around to select a site for our one night stay. We picked #6 and this one has shade at various times of day, but also shared utilities with #5 so our hose and electrical cord are running under the coach. The sewer hookup is in an entirely impractical spot way up front and to the right, so we will use the dump station on our way out. It seems there are many long term campers here. So even on a Thursday in the early afternoon, we didn't have the best selection. I wouldn't recommend showing up at 5 on a Friday expecting to find an open site. The seasonal sites are neat enough but clearly here for the long term. Not sure what the rules are about that. If everyone had their air conditioners running at the same time, I'd be concerned about possible low voltage. Would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Hickories Park in a Motorhome.

We stopped at this park overnight. We arrived after 3 pm, when the office was closed, but there were pay envelopes to fill out your information and pay with a check or cash. This is a beautiful city operated park. There are both pull thru and back in 30 or 50 amp sites. There is lots of grassy area between the sites and very large grassy common areas. The two bath houses we went into we're very clean. The only problem that we had was in choosing a site. The only map available was at the check in area, and sites are either 30 or 50 amp, so we had to rely on our memory of which ones were which. Also it wasn't immediately clear that the pull thrus shared utility hookups so pull thrus went both ways. It would have been easier had we arrived before 3 pm. But we would definitely stay here again!! We camped at Hickories Park in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at Hickories Park in a Motorhome.

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.

Minuses:

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! We camped at Hickories Park in a Travel Trailer.

If you need propane, the local Agway store is off Rt. 96 just north of the overpass, on West Ave., about 5 miles away. They are very reasonable. On the same road is a Laundromat.

Rate is for 30 amp full hookup site, includes sewer. 50 amp site is $30. Discounts available for monthly or seasonal stays (30 amp is $600 per month). Many nice sites, mostly level. A few sites will flood during heavy rain storms. At some sites the fresh water connections can be quite a distance from the pad - 50' or more. The 30 amp pull-through sites alternate pull through direction; therefore your entrance door faces your neighbor's entrance door. Campground is located in a large public park and is near the park's amphitheater. There is a weekly concert in the park during July/August. This is a pleasant campground and convenient for short or long term stays. We will stay here again. We camped at Hickories Park in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Hickories Park in a Motorhome.

We were here just one night while my wife was doing genealogy at the local historical society. It is a very nice park with lots of wide open grass fields for our little dog to run around in. They do now have 50 amp sites for $5 more, but no sewer, which isn't a big deal for a one night stay. We stayed in site No.1, which is a nice pull through with a big shade tree. We definitely would stay here again. We camped at Hickories Park in a Motorhome.

Very nice and clean town run park. Great value. Take your time picking a site, sites are paved, gravel or grass. Hookups may be side to side (your door faces your neighbors door), you might need to pull into a back in site (hookups on left) or some pull throughs have electric on 1 side and water on the other. But it works OK. Washing vehicles is allowed. A very layer back place to relax for a few days. Take exit 65 off of NY 12 and follow signs (straight across at traffic light near McDonalds). We camped at Hickories Park in a Motorhome.

We camped here in a 38' motor home. Hickories is a town of Owego park. The staff are great; very pleasant and helpful. There are no sewers but there is a pump out service. The bathrooms & showers are clean. As noted there are no reservations and there is a 30 day limit on your stay. Sites vary but most will handle big rigs. Many are shaded. There is an outdoor amphitheater for music events and there is almost always something going on in the park. All in all this is a great value! We camped at Hickories Park in a Motorhome.

I found this park on this website while traveling north to Buffalo. This park was a pleasant surprise. Very large facility with lots of spaces, open fields, river front campsites and close to the town. They do not take reservations. If you want a site, you have to get there early (maybe days early) and pay for unused days. This was confusing to me as I did not know what the "Site Occupied" sign meant. Would definitely stay there again, only longer We camped at Hickories Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here in a motorhome. The park is owned and operated by the town of Owego New York. There are many sites with excellent views. The park is right on the river, and you may swim or fish, or launch your boat in the park. Some sites are close together, but there are large sites also. They do not take reservations, so you must be there to get a site. Although, if you are in the area, you may rent a site earlier in the week and show up on the weekend to use it. You don't have to be on the site to save it, just pay for it and it is yours. They have reserved signs that they put on the sites to save them after you show up and pay for them. This was our first stay and we will definitely go back. We camped at Hickories Park in a Motorhome.

This is a nice park right off Route 17. It is located along the Susquehanna River. Very clean and well maintained. The sites are large. There is no sewer hook-up but they do have mobile service and a dump station. There is no camp store but shopping centers are less than 2 miles away. We enjoyed camping here and will go again soon. We camped at Hickories Park in a Travel Trailer.
