This is a very good State Park. The Sampson Military Museum is right at the park and was a great start to our stay here. This park also has a beach, docks and boat ramp. Lots of wineries in the area. Corning Glass Museum is about one hour away and is worth the trip. - myriad

Our spot was roomy, plenty of space for our tow. We had to move around to get satellite tv, but we got it in space 144. We didn't want to move until we left so we used the showers since we didn't have sewer. They were well kept, clean, although there is only 2 per loop. I did have to wait about 15 minutes one day. There was a little beach for swimming with a concession stand. You do need an extension cord for electric. We would stay again, good location for visiting Geneva and a few other towns. - dorcol

For the past several year my DW and I end our camping season with a stay at Sampson State Park. Centrally located between quaint Geneva, NY and Watkins Glen and in the middle of the renowned world class Finger Lakes Wine region. The staff at Sampson is and has always been very friendly and pleasant upon check in. This is a large campground with close to 300 campsites. Like most state parks the sites have electric only and being an older campground most are 30amp only. The trade off though is the large roomy sites available both treed or if you are using a roof top satellite dish out in the open. The comfort stations (restroom and showers) are spotlessly clean and in the fall very warm and comfortable. Generally in late fall Sampson will only have one loop with electric open with about 30-40 sites. However, because of the mild east coast weather this year, their was a demand for more sites than normally open. To Sampson's credit they opened up their largest RV loop and most popular to accommodate all of the requests! Not many campgrounds, public or private would be willing to be that flexible. While visiting Sampson make sure you take in the on grounds military museum with many interesting artifacts and stories of how vital Sampson was as a military base and the incredible speed in which it was built to help win WWII. Enjoy Sampson, Geneva where Emile's restaurant has the best bone on prime rib anywhere and of course the many fine Finger Lakes wineries. - vincee

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. - RVBlessings

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. - MarieB

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. - mynyel

This campground is located between Seneca Lake and Cayuga Lake, near the towns of Waterloo, Seneca Falls and Geneva. Driveways and site pads are gravel. We had a back-in site with full hookups, 50 amp electric. It was a nice site with a large mature tree on each side providing shade early and late in the day. They offer free WiFi but it did not reach our site. When we used it while adjacent to their office it worked well. There is a nice laundry and a bathhouse. The first two days we were there, the bathhouse was very dirty. Apparently, the manager had been away so when he returned it was kept more clean. They also rent kayaks on-site which you can put into the water right from the campground. We paid $255 for a week. AT&T 4G signal strength was -106 dBm, average. - Coopsecondact

A cute park good for a few days. The sites are tight as are the roads to get to the camp sites. They do advertize wifi camp wide but we could not connect and we were close to the main office. The over the air channels were spotty at best. We do not fish or kayak so there was not much to do in the campground. They do have access to the canal so boaters would like this park. Our site was quite slopped and a little difficult to get level. We did notice a strong odor from the water supply. It looked like they had just replaced the water lines to the site we had. Do not know if that might be causing the odor or not.
We would probably stay again if in the area. - John Borajkiewicz

This is a nice campground located along the northern Finger Lakes canal system. The pull thru site we were assigned was a long and reasonably level gravel pad. The pull thru sites are alternated so your door side faces your neighbor's door side. They did not have sewer but water pressure was good and electric was stable. The grounds around the camping area are park-like, fun to explore and you can swim off the dock along the canal. We would stay here again. - Born2Roam

We called & met the owner, the place was more like an open field adjacent to large farm land -- somewhat isolated, though there were several long-term camp units further in, under the trees; we wanted satellite reception, so parked out on the long access road leading into the place. We stayed here in late season, after Labor Day, wanted water & electric hook-ups; we are/were 50' long, with 30' fifth wheel.. We will stay here, again -- likely in Oct. - Don_F

Was a nice quiet campground, large site, but was listed as partial shade and it should have been listed as full sun as it was very hot. It was not an electric site, so air conditioning was on only during the hours I could use the generator (9 to 11 am & 5 to 9 pm). The campgrounds were clean with pretty large sites. There was some nice biking we could do in the area. Our site was large, nice and level, and easy to back into. - Garand1

Sites are level, accessible and each contains picnic table and fire pit, shared water. Our one complaint about this park is that they still have not addressed their power problem. Voltage at the sites runs 131 and spikes to 133 & 134. Our Surge Supressor was constantly tripping. Park people when informed, acknowledged the problem, however said the only people reporting problems are ones with newer rv's(ones with sophisticated Power Mgmt Systems). We came up with some workarounds- shutting off power at night, running air conditioner during the day.The power issue was a real problem and based on that we would probably not return here. - vt3fan

The sites here are level, large and come with a picnic table and fire pit. Water spigots are between every other site. We had terrible trouble with the electricity. We have a surge protector in our RV which kept shutting the electricity off with every surge that occurred - and there were a lot. Thus, we unplugged from the electricity at night and plugged back in when morning came. When we checked with the campground maintenance, they told us that New York allows a 10% difference - which is huge.
There is a beach, a place to launch boats, a small store, and large fields for kids to play in. Over the air TV is good and our Verizon worked well. The campground is huge and, if you want a good place to walk, you can walk here. I doubt that we would stay here again with the electric problems. (Interestingly, we've stayed at 2 other NY State Parks this month and neither of them had problems with electric surges.) - swike

The camp is very well located if you are interested in exploring the Finger Lakes wineries. It is small and very unassuming, which we like. We tend to avoid the "mega-campgrounds". Most of the sites are occupied by seasonal campers so availability of sites is very limited. The best site is #1 for non seasonal camping. Plenty of space and not overlooking anyone else. There is no privacy, the sites are pretty much one next to the other.
We love the private beach and lake access. Very romantic and quiet. We would definitely stay there again sure we decide to go back to the Finger Lakes. - Catalina W

Based on our experience so far, this is a typical northern New York campground. Out of 20 RV sites, all but 4 were occupied by seasonals. The 3 sites available for transients are tight for large rigs. We were in a 34 motorhome and it was very difficult to maneuver into site 20. Site 20 and 1 are the only 2 sites with any hope of getting a satellite signal from your rooftop. The site are grass and dirt, with a little gravel thrown around where you park your RV. A 4G Verizon signal was present, but data speeds were very slow. The campground appeared to have a wifi signal, but we didn't use it. Firewood was reasonably priced. A walk down a fairly steep hill got you to Lake Seneca. There are boat docks available.
The most interesting part was the quarter mile drive down a narrow gravel road with several blind corners. There is no room for vehicles to pass one another.
This is a good area to base camp for Watkins Glen, Geneva, Hammondsport and many wineries and breweries. The daily rate reflects the weekly price. Per day it is $30. Per week it is $180 in spite of what their website says.
The sites are tight. Our windshield was about 3 feet from the back end of the motorhome in front of us.
If you are gong to stay here, disconnect your Toad at the scenic overlook on Highway 14 near Randall Crossing Road. Use your toad to run interference going down the narrow gravel road to warn off any on coming traffic. - FnEJ

This campground has mostly seasonal sites. It's well-maintained, clean, and has lots of amenities. We stayed here twice, to and from our final destination in our 39' fifth wheel. The pull-through site was level and generously sized. The roads are paved but a bit narrow. The park is conveniently located near I-90. You will hear road noise, but it was fine for a one night stay. - FifthWheel Travelers

First, do not use your GPS as you will be directed to the other side of I-90 and will end up on narrow farm country roads going in a circle. It is a very neat & clean campground populated by seasonal campers. This is the northern version of what you would find at campgrounds in FL. for the snowbirds, tennis, bocce, shuffleboard, pool etc.. Lots of room to walk your dog. Downtown Phelps is a short drive away and if you have the time take a drive in to see the beautiful historic town. We have a 35' motorhome and some turns may be a little tight so prior to departure walk your route. What struck as strange is a section of the exit road is between 2 pull thru sites and a tight turn just beyond. I do not think we would have made the turn with the car attached if the site to the right was occupied. We drove through that site to make the turn. While the WIFI connection was good it annoys me that you are allowed only 1 hour on 1 device. For the money spent on a night there should not be a limit. I put 1 as our site since I did not retain the paperwork. The short term camp sites are in the middle grassy area. - petpeople

This is a real nice park that is 90% seasonal campers. There is a circular area that is open for transients and some other scattered sites among the seasonal campers. Real busy on weekends with lots of family oriented activities. Bathrooms and laundry are good, but be aware that their Wi-Fi isn't free. You get one hour free per stay, for only one device, or you can pay for it by the day. We used our Verizon hotspot and it worked great with a 4G signal. Park is 45 minutes from Rochester and close to the north end of Seneca Lake which is terrific for wine lovers. Lots of wineries within a few minutes of the park. The rating is due to them charging for the Wi-Fi. We would stay here again. Rate shown is based on a weekly rate. - TX Camper

Stayed here for three nights this October and September 2014. The place is clean, quiet, and perfectly placed for exploring the Finger Lakes. We had 30 amp, water and sewer. We will return next year. - retcpa

Sites are a nice size, not crowded together. Bathrooms clean. Pool area is nice, but there are no chairs. Plenty of open space to walk your dog. Enjoy going there. - blackhillsmom

I would not recommend this campground except for an overnight if you have no options. Basically, "cheap" and "greedy" show itself in the camp's ownership and management. Camping here is essentially field camping with site numbers and posts for organization. The 8.5 bathroom rating should be a 4.0. Only one litter/trash can in the park is at the office. A locked can with a hole in the top is labeled "RETURNABLE CANS AND BOTTLES ONLY". We reserved for electric and water, but the electric turned out to be 20 amp with AC not allowed and the breaker was not located on the post. No 50 amp service. Although the campground map shows two 50 amp sites, they are occupied by the camp's workkampers. And lastly, they charge guest fees of $5 Adults and $3 kids. An employee is at the entrance in a golf cart to make sure this easy money is collected. I asked about this and the employee said that the State of NY requires it (I do not believe this answer). - pop_and_jojo

Nice spot. Grass sites look great but could get muddy. Long wide 5th wheels could have problems with access road unless they know how to drive. Dump site in main exit. - Mcewena
Jul 2011 - $37.00
After 10 years of motorhome life, hundreds of campgrounds, this was the worst. The entrance road is a long, dusty, bumpy road, barely enough room for a motorhome. We were assured when we called they had 50 amp and level sites. They charged $3 for A/C which we have never had to pay. After finally getting to our site, the site was unlevel and the electric was terrible. We plugged in and it appeared that 4 sites were tied into the same line. As soon as anything was turned on, the voltage went well below 104, we had to turn the frig and hot water on propane and then couldn't run the A/C. Anytime anyone went down the road in front of the motorhome, we were pelted with huge clouds of dust. It appeared that they hurriedly put in a few sites and then called them "big rig" sites. The majority of the campers appeared to be seasonal, in smaller, older trailers. Would never recommend this campground, even for an overnight. - haroldmill

To quote their web page, this campground is "nature's playground"! Our site was right on Montezuma Wildlife Refuge waters, with an active noisy Osprey nest nearby. No complaints - wonderful evening serenade and morning alarm clock. Rented one of their canoes and saw lots of waterfowl. The owners were wonderful friendly - showed us where to see eagles, and helped me replace awning pull-down strap. The campground is clean, neat, and tidy. So is the office. Pool looked inviting, but we didn't have time to enjoy it. Sites are well spaced, nice grass, and quite level. Choose sun or shade. Interior roads are gravel in good condition. Flush toilets and hot showers were fine. We would camp here again. - D & ML Lindemann
