I've read some of the other reviews, and while I agree with most of what they say, I can't make it seem like this place is a total sewage dump. The bugs were pretty bad on the back side (stayed across from the tent sites). But the place is surrounded by water, so pretty much expected. Lots of "seasonals", so good/bad, you decide. Showers were closed when I was there, but restrooms satisfactory. The sewage hookup did leave a bit to be desired, and you needed more than one person for it (one to run the plug and another to hold the darn PVC pipe in place). Beyond that, it wasn't THAT horrible. I'd stay there again, if for no other reason than location (I go to Liverpool, NY about once a month). - lyagooshka

We shared our water connection with 3 other campers so there was a "Y" connection on top of another connection. The electrical hookup was rusted with duct tape over one receptacle. But the worst part was the sewer hookup. It consisted of 15' of PVC pipe laying on the ground which offered little drainage and a terrible smell. The site was a mud hole. Never staying there again! - cooktr

Rate reflects monthly rate.
The Good...extensive shopping nearby, close to Syracuse, mature trees, nearby lake.
The Bad...Most sites filled with seasonal, many are traffic police. 5 mph speed limit is brutally enforced, even though nobody knows how fast you are actually driving, just "too fast". 2 useless stop signs on property. Don't roll through them. Quiet hours not enforced. Among experiences were drunken cabin people returning in wee hours arguing using f-bomb every other word. Not appropriate for family campground.
The Ugly- our site had a septic tank 10' from our front door and open sewer connection at ground level covered over by a rock 7' from our camper front door. Property flooded 3 times in the 5 weeks we were there. Septic tank became inoperative. Anyone using dump station 50' from our front door would force sewage water out of septic tank on our property onto the ground. Puddle was about 10' in diameter. Open sewer pipe was filled with solid waste. Owners pumped tank twice while we were there, but situation was not resolved. We left the next morning after discovering this. - dthurk

This county park campground is less than a mile from exit 31 on I-81 and is convenient for us to visit friends and relatives in the Syracuse area. The park is located on the southwest shore of Oneida Lake and has an excellent boat ramp, children's playground, ball field, archery range, beach volley ball court and a swimming beach that rents kayaks and paddle boats. The park hosts several fishing tournaments and triathlons including the annual "Iron Girl."
The campground has 30 sites in the woods with no hookups and is occupied mainly by tenters. The 24 sites with water and electric are out in the open on a gravel circle with no privacy or shade. There is a restroom in the camping area but the showers are located about 300 yards away at the swimming area. The showers were clean with lots of hot water while we were here. We would stay again because of the convenient location. - Appleknocker

Campground is poorly designed if there was any design when it was built. It is essentially a swampy patch on the south shore of Oneida Lake in a county park. The camp roads are potholed gravel with gravel parking spots for RVs and are the only parts of the campground that aren't underwater during heavy rainstorms. The showers for campers only are located several hundred yards away at the public beach changing rooms. The beach itself was closed most of our two week stay because of blue/green algae and later due to E coli. The only redeeming features are the large boat launch area which draws a lot of fishermen, nearness to I-81 for overnighters and it's proximity to Syracuse. We would not stay here if it wasn't to visit friends and relatives in the Syracuse area. - Appleknocker

We camped here late August midweek so it was not crowded. We were in the area for State Fair. We were surprised that it was not more crowded. Our site was on the water and we had some gorgeous sunrises and sunsets. The beach was closed, which was disappointing since I thought it was still going to be open since it was before Labor Day, but it looked to be very nice. The bathrooms were clean. You do have to drive to get to the showers as these are near the beach. Only complaint was we arrived after 6pm and were unable to obtain the code to open the door to the restroom. Had to leave a message on the campground phone line but they did eventually respond. Just wish they would let people know that if you arrive late this is something you need to be aware of. i did feel safer knowing that there was a code for the door though. Sites were open but shady. Site were OK in size..you might feel a little crowded during peak season. Lots of places to walk our dogs. - siberian

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

Parked here during a rally. Easy access from the freeway. - Mustcamp

Camped here in a PUP for the Right Coast Car Show and had a good time. I've said that the rest rooms where not clean because it appears some scum bag had spread "crap" all over one stalls walls and toilet & it was not cleaned up the 5 days that I was there. We stayed on the race track infield and the location was great. The ONLY minus was that one stall being munged up! Would recommend! - Star Boy

This is not a destination RV Park. A stop over at best! Went on a promotion, they try and sell you a membership. Sales crew is rude, pushy and do not like the words No Thank You.
They claim it is 5 star. Not, being kind maybe a 3. Pool and Rec. area all need up-grades. The bartender was nice and had a band at night. We were in a new site that had no sewer?
Don't go to the sales presentation! - Taffy
Jun 2016 - $1.00
We only came to this park because of the promotion offer and were not interested in purchasing the membership which we told them at the time of the reservation. Still had to go through the presentation but they pretty much gave up on us because we were firm on not buying. My opinion everyone should check out the other campgrounds they own and that are part of this membership before you purchase. As they told us about campgrounds pictures can be deceiving.
Now for the campground review. They state that this is a 5 star resort. We have stayed at other 5 star resorts around the country and this is at best a 3 star. No cable, Wifi only at the office area, only limited 50 amp service, and newer sites with no sewers. The park does have lots of things to do for activities but they require upgrading. Just the basketball hoops alone were in sad shape and the main pool was being torn apart to replace the liner.
The site we had was wide enough but next to someone that was surely a member and had lots of junk around their camper which was a blight on the overall view.
If this were an open campground we would visit again only for a stopover and not for an extended stay. - John Borajkiewicz

Price reflects C2C membership. Campground was very easy to find. The staff in this campground were all very friendly and helpful. We were there at the end of the season and so they were beginning to shut things down. They have a restaurant, but it is only open on weekends. (We were ok without a lot going on, so this isn't a negative... just a comment.)
This is a standard "parking lot" style campground. However, they easily handle big rigs.
Sites are close together but manageable. The truck, 5th wheel and jeep all fit in the site-but very tight.
Gravel roads through the campground; asphalt main campground roads. Camp sites are grass and each site has a picnic table. We struggled getting level in our site-there was a significant slope.
They have a laundry room, machines were only $1. Campground is directly on the lake. There was a great deck overlooking the lake that we enjoyed while waiting for laundry. Good Verizon coverage. Easy to get DirecTV satellite. It is a nice clean, enjoyable campground. There seemed to be a lot for kids to do. - GLPColorado

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
May 2008 - $20.00
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

The new section of the park just open late last year. Plenty of room to get the larger units into. Some of the spots will require leveling, but I have seen much worse. Very clean restrooms and a very beautiful park in general. Will definitely stay here again if in the area. The beach at the lake is a must see. - On the way

This state park CG is as nice as a CG can be. The Pinewoods loop is new and has excellent full hook-ups and level pads (most or all are concrete - not sure about the ones nestled in the woods). The only negative thing is that, if you are using the CG as a stop-over, it is far from the interstate on a convoluted route. The park has hiking trails and a large "beach" with a lake. There is also a nature center. Ideal for walking, jogging, walking your dog, flying a kite, or having a picnic. Just a lovely well-maintained state park with lots of trees and lots of green space. - virginianola

The park itself is gorgeous and very well maintained.
We camped in the Pinewoods loop on site 20. This is a brand new site (opened on July 2016) and it is in impeccable condition. The sites' spacing is just right, there are pull thru and back in sites and the campground is just right off the trail to the lakes. Pet friendly!
The best sites are 2 (back in ) and 12 (pull thru). But you will not go wrong with any other site on the section 1- 24. - Catalina W

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

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
