11 Parks near Sodus Point, New York
May 2016 - $48.00
A small park which is mostly seasonals. Not many transients sites. Not recommended for children as there is a 50 foot cliff with no barricade or fence to keep you from falling off. Very dangerous. The view of Lake Ontario is great. Restrooms are old and need updating, but were clean. Concrete sites are level and the full hookups worked well. Sites are very tight. The nearby town of Sodus Point is quaint with 800 residents. Not much to do there. The Wi-Fi mostly worked OK. Would not stay here again. - sleeper987

A delightful small campground right on Lake Ontario. Very friendly seasonal occupants. Convenient to towns and shops, groceries. Laundromat nearby in Sodus. Plenty to do - Erie Canal cruises and boat rental, historic museums. Right in the middle of apple country. Would highly recommend if you are in the area. - pegbud

Rude people run the park. We paid for a "premium" site. It was fairly small and did not have a picnic table or fire pit. We asked for both, and got a table, but were told we could not have a fire pit because of the hay on the grass seed. There was gravel on the site (no concrete pad, despite being a premium site) and mounds of dirt behind us. It does not have cable TV despite what others may have written. They've installed cable outlets with the new electric boxes but no cable is available. No store, rundown office building, and the co-manager barks at people while "helping" them back in their site. By far, the worst campground we've ever been to. - DaveNYMets

This was our 6th time staying at Lake Bluff campground, hadn't stayed there at all in 2013. The owners have made upgrades and keep the grounds looking great! Very friendly and hospitable. - julie stilwell

Although our stay got off to an ominous start, we felt this campground was very nice. We camped here the last weekend of September so there were many spots to put us in. However, they put us on one of the few unlevel spots. We don't know how it happened, but our TT fell off the blocks as we were setting up. The owner was nice enough to hitch our trailer to his tractor and move us to a level site (he even said he didn't know why he put us there with so many open). After that it was a great stay. Sites are large, people are friendly. Only knock on my "new" site was that the sewer was slightly higher than my sewer exit. We made it work however. Odd that you pay $5 for a bathroom key (you get it back at the end of your stay). If you can do without sewer I highly recommend the "W" loop. Those sites are large, wooded and private. I would camp here again. - theheils

We have camped here several times and love it. The wooded sites are great for shade and having our dog with us. Sewer sites are large, don't smell. My brother rented the large cabin, it was clean, modern and had a nice screened in porch. The bathrooms are spotless, the $5.00 for a key seems to help, more places should follow suit. Seasonal people are friendly, and so is the store staff. Driveway needs some work, but the crew is always working around there. - blackhillsmom

Very nice park with level gravel pull thru. Staff helpful and friendly. Many seasonal units. Most sites have shade trees. Many activities for children and adults. Swimming pool clean and well maintained. Bathrooms and showers exceptionally clean. They do have an extra fee for AC use and for Wi-Fi. We would stay here again. - atwig

Great place to stay. Very clean an well kept up. Drive thru sites, good 30 amp, sewer, roads well kept. Checked bath house, very clean. Would stay there next time in town. - John Eldredge

The staff is exceptionally helpful. We had trouble with our satellite dish on our site and Susan went out of her way to rearrange things so we could move to another site. I also called 3 different times before arriving because I had to change my dates and she was extraordinarily accommodating. Very clean, beautiful, well-managed campground. - dalemitchell

This is a huge New York state park with several camping areas that are really spread out from each other. The campground with electricity is called the Bluff Camping Area. It is a wooded area on the top of a high bluff with a steep road going to it. Next to it on the bluff is the Lakeview Camping Area which overlooks Lake Ontario and has 2 electric sites on either side of the restrooms. The beautiful wide, long sand beach was about ½ mile from our campsite. There is a lovely pond (that is connected to the lake by a channel) with swans, ducks and geese and a place to rent or put in your small boat for paddling around. There is a boat launch on Little Sodus Bay (that borders the park) for boats that arrive on trailers and a dock for tying them up. There are cabins to rent here as well. The town of Fair Haven is very close to the park. Our site was large, and level and very shaded. - ShoreXplorers

Fair Haven Beach was a beautiful spot, although we were somewhat bothered by extremely hungry insects. Our site (#79) was level, but slightly damp. Bathhouse was older, but well kept and the water for showers was plentiful and hot. It was a bit over a mile's walk from our site to the beach, but the walk was lovely. The only negative was that the "view" of Lake Ontario from the bluff area was mostly obscured by over-grown vegetation on the lake side of the chain-link fence. It would be nice if the park maintenance crew could cut the weeds down so that people could see the fantastic view. - spencersmom

We got very lucky and reserved only days before the 4th of July weekend. We reserved the 3rd and 4th online, and were able to book the 5th when we arrived, so we had three wonderful nights there. There were plenty of places to walk - which we like to do - and then have ice cream at the park store next to the swimming beach. We would definitely camp at Fair Haven again, and regard it as one of the nicest parks in New York State. - GaryCamper

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

The other reviews are correct about how new and nice this place will be "someday" but in my opinion not now. We stayed here for an overnight and the park was nearly empty. The reason became clear fairly soon: trains. Lots of them and they are close by with horns blasting at least one an hour sometimes more ALL NIGHT! It gets better! Early morning an hour before sunrise the gunfire starts. Lots of it - automatic weapons, rifle shots, shotguns and it is close. Real close. We cleaned up and left before some nut put a dozen holes in us and our rig. - Whack-A-Mole Wheels

I was really looking forward to staying in this new park because of the great location and good reviews. There are some very nice things about it, but it didn't live up to all my expectations as a traveler. This could be a better place for seasonals than those traveling through.
The good: Beautiful land on a ridge above the Erie Canal. Most spaces are open, but there are two shaded roads. One road overlooks the canal. We were fortunate to get a shaded site even though we stayed just four days. Most of the sites with big trees are for seasonals. The staff is very friendly, but a little hard to find. Follow the directions on the office doors if no one's there. We did not use the bathrooms, but we did use the laundry which was quite nice. I got some help from a busy worker in the laundry. She took the time to drive me to the office to get change for the machines.
The bad: I think the owners took on a little too much with this project. They cleared and graded many acres of land, but have not been able to finish it all. Some roads were unfinished and piles of building materials were lying around. Not too safe for kids. The campsites were not well tended. Our grass was very long and the campfire had bottles and trash in it. In our four days of hot weather, the grass was not mowed in our campsite. People were working hard at getting the pool house painted, but nobody seemed willing to do a little housecleaning on our street or cleaning out the campsites after renters leave.
Placed here and there around the welcome area were lots of oddball salvaged items in various states of disrepair. Some things from the pool were just piled up and stored on the office porch. The owner must like salvage, but to others it's junk.
The trains didn't bother us, but they were loud.
I will stay at Twilight again because it's beautiful, close to our family, and the people are friendly. I just hope they can clean it up a little. - User2152

As previously stated, 2015 was the opening year for this park. There are still some finishing touches to be done, i.e. the pool is not finished, and the sites' gravel pads are to be widened and re-leveled in the fall. The owners aim to please and are very enthusiastic about their park. Many of the sites are taken by seasonal people, with weekends being the busiest. The setting is very rural, but retail stores for just about anything are within 10-15 minutes away. It is very quiet there. The utilities work well, including the wi-fi. The sites are nice and wide, too, so you don't feel as if you are on top of your neighbor. We will definitely return next year as we have family in the area and this park is the best one for more than a weekend stay. - dbcordello

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
Aug 2015 - $35.00
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

This is the third time we have been to this park. This is a nice quite, family friendly park but it is old. The restroom/shower house is old but clean.
The pricing has changed since our last visit. It is now based on how you camp; tenting ($35.00), camper 25 ft long or less ($40.00), and more than 25 ft $50.00. I would have given a higher value rating but the price is pretty high for such an old park.
You can now reserve online at https://www.monroecounty.gov/mcparks/reserve/camp.
If you plan to cook outside, some sites have pedestal grills, some fire pit grills, some both, and at least one (site 34) has no usable grill, a tree has grown up around it. A lot of the grills are not level and may cause you a problem with cooking. Every site does have a fire ring.
With all that being said, it is a very nice campground. The staff is friendly and it is convenient for us with children and grand-children close by. We will camp here again. - dmoore1108

This is a small county campground and hidden gem on the north east side of Monroe County near Rochester NY. Its about as big as one loop in other campgrounds and since its a county park, there is very little in the way of amenities. Big rigs park in the open overflow area and smaller campers and tents bunk on the loop. The loop has small, private sites with well established foliage. The park is on the edge of Webster park and right on Lake Ontario. We always love our time here. - Lindalew

We were here last year and came back due to family in the area. This is an awesome county park with beautiful trees, hills and hiking trails. This year the Verizon signal was strong enough to give us phone and internet service. It was a little muddy because they have had lots of rain. We were in the "Only Motor homes and large 5th Wheels" sites near the entrance to the campground. No sewer hookups means it is a short visit for us, but we will be back. People who work here are very nice, and at $25/night it is a good value. - dbcordello
