This park has 141 acres of sloping land and is one of the largest campgrounds in the area. There are 36 electric sites and over 251 no hookup sites located in two loops. Cabins are also available. This was an overnight stop for us on a rainy day so we did not hike around to see everything it has. The park has picnic areas on the water, boat launch, swimming area and playgrounds. It was a good stop. The layout of the electric sites are on dead end roads. We camped at Cayuga Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

Arrived after dark for one night stay. Site was decent. Next morning discovered campground appeared to be extensive (both sides of main road leading down to the campground). Appeared to be lots of treed sites versus our overnight spot. Only campground we have ever stayed at where we had to show dog vaccination certification.

This is a poor choice unless intending to dry camp. The only way we found to reserve a site is online which does not work for campers traveling, so this has to be a destination, not a stop over. For a tent or no hook up destination camper, this is a good camp. Rate is out of state rate. Desk manager assigned two sites that were not acceptable so we found a third. It needed picking up. We had no hook ups. Bathhouse had no ventilation, single temp water, which was too hot, and needed cleaning. Site was not level. We would not return. -1 not level, -1 bathhouse not ventilated, -1 bathhouse water too hot & not adjustable, -1 bathhouse not clean, -1 site trashy, -1 no listed way to call ahead day of arrival, -1 expensive, -1 from desk staff are not campers & not well trained.

We love the sites on the western side of the park. The sites are large, the restrooms are clean and it is very quiet and peaceful. We plan to return later this summer. We camped at Cayuga Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.
This is a beautiful state park. The cost for electric only included a $9 service charge through Reserve America. You need pay it only once per reservation. It also included a $5 Out-of-State fee. Our site wasn't level and it's difficult to tell on the internet how level a site will be. A call to the office may clarify the nature of the sites. Sites 5-9 are near a busy highway. Be aware of this. Restrooms and showers are very modern and clean. Lake Cayuga is a large and very inviting lake with boat access and swimming available. We camped at Cayuga Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a beautiful state park within easy walking distance of the lake. The park served as a good base for seeing the Finger Lakes Region of New York. We camped at Cayuga Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

We were not aware of how noisy the sites were that backed up to the road. I would suggest avoiding sites 12/13. The restrooms were kept clean and the park was in a convenient location but the road noise but LOUD. We camped at Cayuga Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.
Our site was in the older section of the park that had electric hookups. It was on an outside corner and near the main road but we were not bothered by traffic noises. Old rest room facilities but they were kept clean and in working order. Office staff was very friendly and helpful. We camped at Cayuga Lake State Park in a Motorhome.
We used this as a one night stop, and wished we could have stayed longer. Our site was very large, with an area for the kids to play. Fireflies fill the campground at night. The Rangers were very nice to deal with. We camped at Cayuga Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.
This is a NY state park. There are numerous non-electric sites but only a handful (36) electric sites which are smaller. Water hookups are available at most of the electric sites. The sites are about 30' wide and some are deeper than others. We stayed in the electric area. The park is very clean. The lake, lake playground and fishing areas are a walk from the campground. You can also drive and leave your vehicle near the lake access. No views of the lake from any campsites. Many wineries and an outlet mall not too far.
