17 Parks near Waterloo, New York
Sep 2016 - $20.00
This is a nice park right on the river but only seasonals have the waterfront sites; over-nighters have a choice of pull-thru spaces with water and electric OR easy back-in sites with full hookups. The park has both shady and sunny sites, some more level than others, and most with plenty of space in between. Large trees and green grass make it very pleasant. There are rigs of all sizes here. Wifi was strong (the manager said they just boosted the signal) and Verizon at full strength. We were at the park for two days/two nights and had no complaints at all. Staff (Mathew) was friendly and helpful. There is a nice walking path down to the river's edge and all kinds of "person-powered" water craft to rent. Seneca Falls and the drive around the finger lakes is quite nice. - alm

This park is for location. It is convenient to the Finger Lakes region. No wifi, cable, sewer. - har-fl

This is a good park for visiting Seneca Falls which is a few miles down the road. It is not a good park if you want a reasonably quiet place to stay. If I did not know better I would think they were having a rock concert in the park but it has been going on for about four hours so I think it is someone with extremely loud speakers. It can be heard all over the park and I guess this is OK with management because it has continued so long. Apart from that, my site is not so level and there is no wifi unless you go to the office. My Verizon works OK. Easy to hook up to water and electric--there is no sewer hook up in this pull through area. Good thing I am leaving tomorrow, I would not want another day of this. - nanzhere

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

Paved roads with gravel/grass sites. Lots of trees so no satellite. It is mainly seasonal. Very clean and staff very helpful. Stayed overnight. - Rubberfoundation

Nice camp, but this park is not big rig friendly. Site so uneven and not level was not able to level. Windshield shattered trying to level. Had to wait a week to get new windshield installed. The park's hookups are set up for trailers or 5th wheels not 40 foot motorhomes. When I confronted the owner about uneven sites and motorhomes should not be put on this uneven sites of grass his response was "Well never had a problem before and most RVs only level side to side not front to back." I guess he did not consider a motorhome a RV? - Casy

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

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

We paid extra for 50 amp service then got billed another $3 a night for A/C. $39 a night was overpriced especially for not getting full hookups. The sites were roomy enough and electric and water hookups worked fine (no sewer hookup). The park ran a hay ride for the kids and had a chicken BBQ one night. It was not easy on, easy off from the interstate. Several low hanging branches needed trimming and potholes on the long drive in needed filling. The dumpster was quite a walk to get to. - Melodycthomas

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

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

Out of the way, but easy to get to. Park was well maintained. Many seasonals, but they were well kept. Main problem was that sites were very un-level. We first went to a 50 amp (they only had a couple) and it had a terrible slope to the back. We couldn't begin to get level. Then we moved to a 30 amp. Those sites were in the middle of a circle of seasonals. Just a small field. Not bad, but again we couldn't get level. Not as bad as the first site, so we just made do. - DYK 640

I was a bit hesitant to stay, since the reviews are mixed, but we took a chance seeing as how even the most recent review was 3 yrs. old. We were pleasantly surprised, overall. Unlike so many other places we have been everything is very spread out. The sites were very large, nice & flat, and after about noon were shaded. The pool was in very good condition. And it has a bar! For me this was big draw; being able to go for a swim, and walk into the adjacent building & have a cold beer. On tap. A craft brew IPA no less, and only $3.75. We found all of the seasonal people to be friendly as well. WiFi stunk but we have yet to find a park with even adequate WiFi. Overall we just really enjoyed the weekend. - Joe & Penny

We stopped at this park because it was listed in Passport America. It was not the easiest park to get to, but we wanted something that was not directly on the Interstate. When we arrived there, the first thing the woman behind the desk told us was how bad this year had been for them, and how much the recent rains had damaged, or made unusable, some of the sites in the campground. When we told her we were members of Passport America, she informed us that the sites reserved for Passport America members were among those flooded, and she refused to give us the discount! The site assigned to us was next to several sites that were occupied by old trailers that were in such poor shape they looked to be abandoned. In addition, the park roads were dirt and only one lane, making it tricky to back into the site assigned to us. This park did not make us feel welcomed, and we would not recommend it. - seabreezeblk

This was a nice park. The electric worked fine. No water or sewer. Verizon was good, AT&T was fair. We were able to get satellite coverage. We stayed there on a weekend and it was full of kids on bicycles riding fast through the campground and through the sites. The real negative to this campground was the road coming in is like a washboard. It is a former military base and the roads have not been maintained. You should also be aware that there is a low bridge on the main road to the campground, 12'9". We are 13'4" so we had to go about 20 miles out of our way to get to the park. We'd probably pick a park we could get to without a low clearance bridge next time. - jacknpeg

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

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

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
