Sites are tight with little to no shade. Bathrooms are clean and well maintained but old. Mostly seasonal rentals but they were all friendly. Close to the gorge, the track, the wine trail and downtown. We would come back if in the area. We camped at W W Clute Memorial Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice park right on the end of Seneca Lake. Good size park with a lot of very neat seasonals. We definitely would like to be seasonal here too. Since we were traveling, we only stayed 3 days. We will be back. We camped at W W Clute Memorial Park in a Travel Trailer.

This campground sits directly across the street from the south end of Seneca Lake in Watkins Glen. It is a convenient location for exploring wineries and other Finger Lakes attractions. The sites are not overly spacious, but adequate for our 3 slides and awning. The road through the middle of the campground leads to the town boat launch, so was busy, especially on the weekends. Lots of seasonal sites here, mainly in one section, all were well kept. This park is a good value and convenient to town. Walmart is just across the bridge, about a 5 minute walk. The town is about a 10 minute walk - boat tours, restaurants, ice cream, shops, etc. Our Sprint cell phones had strong signals, the Wi-Fi worked well. We would stay here again. We camped at W W Clute Memorial Park in a Motorhome.

This park is mostly fully of seasonal or long term campers. Many of the sites have permanent wooden decks but are well kept. A few have small refrigerators and plastic storage compartments outside. The seasonals also take up the best sites that have a view across the street of Seneca Lake. There is no pool here. You need to cross the street into a nice park that has playground equipment, picnicking and day use to go swimming in the lake. The roped off area is very rocky and mucky (no sandy beach here). The bathrooms are older but clean. WiFi was pretty useless and would not stay connected. However we had been warned at check-in that they were having problems with the WiFi. Cable TV was fuzzy. Fortunately there are only a few small shade trees so no problems with our satellite TV. Easy biking distance to town and Watkins Glen SP. Expensive for what you got, but not much choice in town since the State Park can't accommodate big rigs. We camped at W W Clute Memorial Park in a Motorhome.

The park is reasonably well maintained. Staff is friendly and helpful. Hookups, Wi-Fi and CATV all work well. Water pressure is high so bring a reducer. Strong Verizon signal and easy satellite setup. Sites are a little smaller than I would like. Marina is adjacent. There are many long term residents though they seem to keep their standards up. A few rigs are older, but none are derelicts and there was no rowdy behavior. Town is an easy walk away. Bottom line is, if you are coming mainly for the camping experience then this is probably a bad choice. If you want a decent, full hookup home base to explore Watkins Glen and the tourist attractions around it Clute should do nicely. My rate is based on a monthly stay. They also have weekly and daily rates. If I'm in the area again I will stay here. We camped at W W Clute Memorial Park in a Fifth Wheel.

If you are looking for a "State Park" feel, this is not the place for you. The RV area is a bit of a field, with a few young trees planted here and there. However, the non-camping part of the park makes up for this in spades! It is right on Lake Seneca, with a large clean waterfront, and great picnic areas. The park is fairly quiet, but centrally located. It is a 2 minute walk to WalMart, a 10 minute walk to town, and a 15 minute walk to Watkins Glen, which you MUST SEE! We stayed 3 nights and never needed a car. We were in site A9, at the back. All was good, except cable was fuzzy and Wi-Fi a little spotty. Definitely going back.

This community owned park is a good place to stay. There is little for children to do on site, but being in walking distance to the town with all there is to see and do, that shouldn’t be too much of a draw-back. Most of the sites are not shaded or private but they are spacious. Many seasonal sites but well-kept. The staff was wonderful, helping us to check-in, find our site and give tips on where to shop, eat, sight-see. We didn’t use the shower/restroom facilities. We stayed for 10 days. The WiFi a little slow but dependable and many cable TV stations. We drove through the local KOA and would much prefer to stay in this park. It is a public park (not gated) so there is some local traffic going through the main road, mostly boats on trailers going to and from the marina—but there are speed bumps and they keep their speed down. I would recommend this place. We camped at W W Clute Memorial Park in a Motorhome.

Nice city park right across the street from Seneca Lake Park. Full Hook-ups, cable TV, pull throughs. Showers were very clean and roomy. Lot's of things to do in the area, and walking distance to town. We would stay here again. We camped at W W Clute Memorial Park in a Fifth Wheel.

As with previous posters we're rating this CG a 10 for location, as well as the superior staff. They were very friendly and helpful with information about the wineries, things to see/do, etc. The convenience of the lake/shops/town all within walking distance was great. The sites were level, but not overly spacious and/or private. VERY easy to get in/out of the sites. We stayed here 5 nights and would easily stay here again.

A great park which would've rated a '10' if they had a pool. Super location, CATV, WIFI, and check-in people. Beyond doubt the very best community-run facility we've ever encountered. Given the beauty of the finger lakes region, our enthusiasm for NY wine and the quality of this park, we'll be back. We camped at W W Clute Memorial Park in a Motorhome.

Location=10! This is THE place to be. The spaces are gravel, adequate and level but not roomy, and there isn't anything between them. Only a few with shade & many seasonal sites. They have 4 Wi-Fi points, but signal where we were was never more than about 60%, BUT...the good out-weighs the average. You are directly across the street from a park and public beach with swimming at the southern tip of Seneca Lake (2 min walk). There is a marina right there! 5 min walk to the Wal-Mart and 10 min walk to the Seneca Harbor and downtown! 15 min walk to the wonderful State Park! So close to so many wineries! Yum! For location, this place is a 10. The service is friendly and good and check-in is quick. Bathrooms were spotless and trash picked up daily. We loved it and will be back.

While this is a nice park, I would rate it as just a bit above average. The sites are roomy but not overly large. All sites appear to be level with picnic tables and are grass/gravel. The services work well and the Wifi has several channels and is some what slow at times. The cable service includes 83 channels and is very strong and clear. All and all an OK park but not a 8,9,or 10. Nightly rate is for a weeks stay. We camped at W W Clute Memorial Park in a Motorhome.

$245 a week. We are in a drive through site. What makes this park really special? Nothing. BUT: what they do, they do perfectly. Check in is a breeze and they really make you feel welcome. They also have a boat launch and marina. Daily garbage pickup. Dependable wireless internet. Seventy-eight channels on cable TV and few trees to block satellite access. You are close to EVERYTHING! Park is pet friendly and people pick up after their pets. Every space has a fire ring available. Lots are of ample size. We love this park, recommend it to everyone and will return! Beware: they have HIGH WATER PRESSURE at 80lbs. Use a regulator. We camped at W W Clute Memorial Park in a Motorhome.

The price reflects a 1 week stay rate, daily is currently $40. The park is perfectly located to explore Watkins Glen Village on foot. A Wal-Mart is a 5 minute walk and the staff are super friendly and helpful to visitors. Restrooms/showers were very clean. 50% of the park is seasonal and it gets fairly filled up during the summer season, advance reservations are a good idea. Sites (gravel) are level and adequate for any size rig. Its not a luxury park by any means but I rated it a ten on the basis of its cost/benefit for anyone visiting the WG area. They have multiple Wi-Fi channels and we had no service problems. We camped at W W Clute Memorial Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed in a deluxe kamping kottage. It was VERY nice but very expensive; we could have rented a vacation home and have been right on the lake. Overall just ok! $320.00 We camped at W W Clute Memorial Park in a Campground Cabin.
