1 Park near Romulus, New York
Sep 2015 - $29.00
The driveway into the park was a long and very rough paved road. Our first impression with the park was checking in at the office late afternoon on a Monday where the clerk was a bit rude. Although we were the only people in the office, she ignored us at the counter until we spoke up. She was very cold and left us with a poor first impression of the park service.
The park is designed nicely with the different loops but the sites appear to be best suited for smaller travel trailers, pop-ups, etc., instead of motorhomes. I say this because most of the sites we saw were not level. In fact, many sites were so sloped that some travel trailers had their tongue on the ground in front and a the rear was a couple feet off the ground. The gravel sites had very little gravel and ours had more dirt than grass at the picnic table. We chose loop 5 to be near the water but frankly, the trees and brush are so thick by the water that there is very few spots to view the water from the loop. We rode bikes in the other 4 loops and they seemed to be a bit more flat, but still many sites were very sloped. Seems that the park was built / designed decades ago for smaller RV's and more geared for single /double axle RV's instead of motorhomes that level on four corners. My impression is that the park is underfunded given the obvious lack of routine maintenance on sites and roadways.
The good - lots of shade at the sites; nice layout of the loops with central bathhouse; nice marina, picnic areas, lake; good spacing between sites; fair rate; good location for touring the regions wine trails.
The "not s0 good" - unlevel sites with small gravel pads; very rough roadways; shared electrical posts that likely require extension cords for many sites; staff mowing large fields regularly but our loop had very long grass; concession store only open Fri/Sat/Sun; check-in staff gave us a poor first impression. This is likely a very good family camping spot for smaller RV's. - homey

245 electric campsites and 64 no hookups located in an open field with a great view of the lake. We were camping for an RV rally and it is a very nice campground. There are five loops of electric campsites on grass, each having their own bathrooms and shower which were very clean. The lake is a walk or bike ride down hill. There is a 103 slip marina, dump station, water spread out in the loops, restaurant and store, picnic areas and some pavilions for rent. This state park is on 2000 acres with over 5.5 acres of lake front on Seneca Lake in the middle of the Seneca Wine Trail. The park has fields, basketball court, biking, bird watching, swimming, boating, and volleyball. This is a perfect park to stay in while touring the Finger Lakes region. - gsnakehill

We just stayed here for three nights. Only electric but it was great. Awesome campsite and would definitely go there again. We were at site 100 and we did read reviews to make sure you have extra long electrical cords and/or do fancy backing in to reach the power boxes. You share with the person next to you. Very spacious lots. Some shade. Beautiful play grounds and beautiful views of the Seneca Lake and sunsets. There is a beach to swim and dock to fish off of and a little rec. house for the kids to play ping pong, etc. The Military Museum on site is stunning. Hard to believe that during WWII this "state park" was training future Navy sailors to fight and then after WWII, it turned into a boot camp for the United States Air Force for training for Korean War. Great history. Can't say enough about this state park. We visited Watkins Glen (about 30 minutes away) one day, Seneca Falls (Woman's National Rights Convention and It's A Wonderful Life Museum) another. Montezuma's National wet lands are close by along with Harriet Tubman's house in Auburn and Mr. Seward's who acquired Alaska for us. We also did the Memorial Day House in Waterloo. Campsite is centrally located and look across the street for the white deer. We will go back. - Karen Hamm
