24 Parks near Wilson, New York

Close to Niagra Falls(18mi) and somewhat less expensive than many of the closer parks. Mostly seasonal folks who were very helpful/sociable. Surprisingly good/consistant wifi, right on the edge of Lake Ontario, good OTA stations, iffy satellite due to the trees. This park is really not big rig friendly due to tight turns and some trees by the camp sites themselves. Probably won't stay again if in the area. - jc2

Very small park on Lake Ontario. Many permanent campers though all were well maintained. Friendly staff. Large open gazebo near lake. Nice dock but no area for swimming. Small but nice playground for kids, with plenty of open space for running wild! We had the only kids there during our stay. We had a family reunion picnic while staying there. We will stay again when back in the area if it doesn't turn into all full time campers. - WandaJim

We stayed here with out Passport America discount, reflected in the price. The park is located right on Lake Ontario, and no matter which site you receive, you'll be only a few steps away from the lake. Most sites are long term or seasonal folks, with about 8-10 sites for folks passing through. The staff we exceptionally helpful and accommodating. Most of the sites are on grass, which concerned us a bit because of the heavy rains expected when we stayed there. It did get quite soggy, but no issues as far as the ground getting too soft when we left. A couple areas that sorely need improvement and that's the state of the bathrooms and the dump station. The bathhouse would be sufficient if it was cleaned. It didn't appear that the bathhouse had been wiped down or cleaned in any manner for weeks, or even this season at all. Yikes. I can deal with facilities that aren't new, but filth, not so much. The dump station, which we used on the way in and the way out, is designed such that standing water easily accumulates around the drain, making it difficult if not impossible to make the hookups with wading into the, uh, liquid. This would apply even on non-rainy days. The grounds are beautiful and there is a ton of space to walk, have a picnic, take your pooch for a long walk. There is a beautiful fire pit right down by the lake, and a gazebo as well. This place has a lot going for it, although we would most likely stay at 4-mile State Park the next time, as we had a picnic lunch there one day and found it to be nicer in almost every respect than Daisy Barn. - classact

The park was OK a lot of permanent residents who seemed exempt from the leash policy for their little dogs that attacked us every time we walked by. Our site was in the woods where there are no cement pads. Firewood was available but very expensive. Speed bumps were over kill WAY TOO high and narrow with metal rebar sticking up out of the firehose covered 4x4. In a pinch it would work certainly I would not stay more time than necessary to get to the next destination. Wi-Fi was moderate. Voltage was inconsistent. - Susan Flickinger

It was very muddy after they'd had a rain the day before we arrived. The water & electric hook-ups were close to the front of the site & the sewer hook-up was way far back. You'll need some long connections to make it all work. The wifi is slow. The reservations were easy to make on their website but when we arrived the site we were sent to wasn't the one assigned. We asked for a pull-thru if available in a more open area so we could use our DirecTV on the roof of our motor home. We got a back-in site under trees. A lot of permanent residents reside here in this park. I guess that can be good or bad. We will not stay here again. - K Martin

Price is ROD membership. Standard parking lot campground. They can manage big rigs. Each camp site is gravel and grass. Good Verizon coverage. Easy DirecTV satellite we were not parked in trees. This is where the good stops. We camped for a week & repeatedly heard staff screaming at campers. They have a 5 mph speed limit. Once we were following a vehicle (they absolutely were NOT speeding), maintenance man started yelling & waving his arms like they were going 100 mph.
There are railroad ties outlining campsites. Several of the ties from our site were rotting and severely damaged-pieces were lying in our site. We didn't see all of the wood pieces-but I didn't inspect the campsite. Before coming to Lazy Lakes, we have never cleaned a campsite before pulling in. We got an immediate blowout on our truck. The hole was 1" in diameter. The 1st person that looked at the tire apologized and said they would make sure the tire was taken care of. The 2nd person didn't care about the problem-just wanted to make sure he could totally blame us. After multiple attempts we finally spoke to the manager. His only response was to tell us to "turn it into our insurance-it was not their problem". (Our deductible-not theirs) Originally we didn't expect them to pay for the tire-we wanted them to know they had an issue. It would have been nice for them to act like they cared or at least not blame us for the debris in their campground. It would have been great if they had been even a little professional. So our warning... "Camper Beware". If you have an issue, they very likely won't care.
There are 2 pools; however 1 pool was closed. There is a pond with swim beach. No one was swimming; the swimming area was full of slime and trash. It was disgusting.
Bottom line: Verizon & DirecTV coverage were good. The staff is hateful and power crazed. The amenities are there, but may be unusable. Carefully check your site for campground damage and debris. - GLPColorado

Level pull-thru, 50 amp, and water sites. A big campground with about 289 sites, about 15-20 minutes from Niagara Falls. Several large clean bath houses. Only 2 dump stations and 1 dumpster (all near the exit) that I saw. A nice friendly check in staff. They weren't crowed so they put us in a section with several empty spots around us, thus giving us plenty of room. They appear to have a great many campground activities designed for their campers. It was very handy for our trips to Niagara Falls, the Niagara River Gorge, and Canada. They have an overly officious speed enforcer who chased me down at 11pm on deserted a rainy night to tell me I was over the 5 MPH speed limit. He was correct and I did slow down afterwards. It was a very acceptable campground near Niagara Falls. I would stay here again if in the area. - jwc47031

Very nice RV resort. Private membership park that allows ROD and AOR members. Paved main roads with gravel site roads with wide level gravel sites. They have a large open section has large sites with large grass areas, table and fire rings, 30 amp and good satellite signal. The wooded area sites are smaller but some with 50 amp. The park is well maintained with usable Wi-Fi signal, good 3G Verizon and TV antenna signals. Good water pressure. No sewer at sites, but honey wagon twice a week for $7 and dump stations. Outdoor pool, large rec center, video game room, and small store. Rental cabins and weekend breakfasts and Ice cream socials. Several fishing ponds. Would stay there again. Rate cited reflects ROD membership. - Pepper Dan

We loved this park. The restrooms and showers are excellent. The staff friendly and very helpful with picking our site and attractions in area. The spaces are good with fire rings. No hookup for sewage or water at site, but dump station and water available. - Funfinder54

Expensive for a state park. It is very nice and the second time I have stayed here. On season is crowded on weekends so make sure you reserve. We wanted to extend our stay another day and looked online for a site and there were two available. We went to the office and they said they could not add it on for us until the next morning. The girl then informed us that they couldn't let one of the sites go the next day, as their boss had blocked that site for friends. That is just wrong and I will send a letter to the state concerning that matter including the name of the boss that told them that. We could have booked it anyway online but we found another campground to go to. - BiGKaT

State Park with electric only. Water spigots throughout park and dump stations. Electric worked fine. Verizon signal ok, AT&T weak. Was able to get satellite signal. Sites level. There is a $5 upcharge for non-NY residents. This park is located about 15 minutes from Niagara Falls. Very quiet park. - jacknpeg

First of all, PA members pay half of what I did. Second, online registration and web page design are very slick, implying a 'great' resort. Not so. It does have a swimming pond, putt putt. Playground for the kids and a small store, but they are old and tired. Hence I would grudgingly say it is a 'resort'. Roads in are washboard. Almost all seasonal to permanent sites. Transients are put into a field, which is OK. Honey wagon runs for free on MWF. Bathrooms are cinder block and I barely fit into a commode stall. The location really is good. Lake Ontario is 12 miles north, Lockport is a must, the Falls are 20 miles away, and Buffalo is 29 miles away. Services are within 5 miles, and there are several wineries within 5-8 miles. Service was helpful. Spent 3 nights here. Would do so again. - Mike from Bama

We called and made reservations. Did say we were a 36 foot 5th wheel and have Passport America. Passport America would have been $13.50 per night. Upon checking in we were told our 5th wheel was 4 feet to big and they could not accept Passport America. It went from $13.50 a night to $31.00 a night. Don't think we will stay again. No sewer hookups, $2.00 for electric hookup with a $2.00 charge for heat or air. Cable TV was just ok. Not worth it. - cbaker

The last review for 5/13 looks like they covered everything as far as what the park looks like with old trailers around the perimeter, but I also had site 43 in June and found it to be more then enough room for my slides and to get in and out of. It was also pretty level on wet grass, it also rained while I was there. I did not ask but it looks like the owners put RV's in sites 30-48 that don't have kids. The other section had lots of families with lots of kids. I think I'll send her a thank you for that! I would stay here again as long as I can get the same area away from all the kids. - twowoofs

Excellent small 4 site campground with a great soccer field for kids, nice hiking trail within a mile or 2. Fantastic walk along the Erie Canal to historic Lockport. Respectful and well maintained, I don't see it being this price for long. First come first serve basis. W+30amp only. - SilverBreeze

Suggested donation is $10 for Elk members, $20 for non-Elk members. All four sites are level, cement pads with plenty of room that look onto large grassy soccer field. Each site has electric and all sites share one main, centrally located water spigot - you'll need a long water hose to reach. Dumping station 10 minutes away at the Lockport Waste Water Treatment Plant (716-433-1613). Just across the street from the Erie Canal which has a walking/biking path. Call the lodge for directions (take rte 78 north if coming from I-90), as your GPS will lead you to low clearance overpasses. Very nice people inside lodge - even has local information. Very quiet and in nice area. We'd definitely stay here again. - campingandtravels.blogspot.com

It was a very peaceful campground. The host was very informative and gave us all the information we needed to see the Niagara Falls. It was a very clean park. - Chris-Esther2008 _

The facility was easy to find. Area attractions are easily accessed in short drives. Sites are level but a little close together for our taste. Pump out service was available. Drive to Youngstown area for farm markets and good firewood at a reasonable price. - family_man

Thanks to an incompetent person at the KOA central reservations who told my wife twice that we had a full hookup site only to get to the park and find out we only had a water and electric site for the week we started out not being happy. We knew we could manage since we had a blue tank but felt we should not have to but they had no full hookup sites available. The park is a typical old KOA with narrow 1 lane roads, close together sites and very high prices. Also, to get very level at all we had to park the trailer at an angle in the site. About the only good things were the water pressure was OK as well as the voltage. The park Wi-Fi worked good at times but we mostly used our MiFi. There are really no fuel stations close except a strange place that the park pushes up on a hill where they have to pump your fuel for you. As far as eating, it’s the same thing pretty much but there is a pretty good place that is only 2 ½ miles from the park called Destinos which has all kinds of food. Basically this is just another overpriced and undervalued KOA. We came for the falling water and have no reason to come back here anyway. - zrxh14

Normally quiet park that was packed with hordes of happy children over Labor Day weekend. Lots of seasonals that are responsible for maintaining their own lawns, so the level of care ranges from "neat as a pin" to very sloppy. The facilities are old and in need of paint and cosmetic repairs but they are clean. No WiFi or cable available. AT&T signal is one bar. Plenty of broadcast channels. Beware the Willow trees a storm came through and at least one two inch limb hit the coach. We were fortunate enough to be present for Charles Famous, all you can eat, turkey dinner with all the trimmings for $7.50. The park also had an excellent all you can eat breakfast with pancakes, sausage, made to order or scrambled eggs, toast and juice or coffee for $4.50. I gained three pounds in two days! One power leg ran 16 Volts less than the other which caused our surge protector to kick out at least twice. We would stay there again but not for two weeks. That was too long without internet. - NewmarNewbie

As Fulltime RVer's my wife and I see a lot of parks and even thou we don't expect the best or all the bells and whistles, we do expect up to date facilities, easy access, a clean and tidy park, friendly helpful staff and all for a good value.
With that we rate each aspect as follows:
Up to date facilities: 2 (Older park with old facilities and sites very close together. Our site had a severely broken concrete patio, sewer outlet too high, registration was filled out on paper.)
Power supply was straining. Mine went out a couple of times during heavy load. My surge protector protected us but ours and well as the neighbors had sporadic problems during our stay.
Our sewer outlet was higher than the outlet coming from our RV. Our site though, seemed to be the exception as we didn't notice it elsewhere.
Easy access: 4 (Access was good, fairly easy to maneuver our 40' 5w.)
Clean & tidy park: 2 (Lot of trash lying around, our fire pit was full of trash from the last people.)
Friendly & helpful staff: 2 (My wife calls him the Campground Nazi. Very strict with the rules, beware. Whether its talking after quiet hours, inadvertently going the wrong way on his divided entrance or letting the 20lb harmless poodle dog off the leash at our campsite you will get busted.)
Value: 5 (Best part of this campground, no complaints here.)
We stayed here for 8 days and received the weekly rate. No discounts. - CasperFulltimeRVr

We stayed here using the Passport America discount card. The $16 per night was for full hookups. The electricity is metered at eighteen cents per kilowatt hour. For us, that added a few dollars a night.
The campground is older, but they are working on upgrades for the transient area of the park. The town is out in the middle of nowhere but it is quiet, except for the chickens that are the early morning alarm clock.
The park was perfect for what we were looking for: cheap, had adequate services, a place to catch up on our work, and shopping about ten miles away. Our electrical pedestal was like new, the water pressure was at 80 psi, and the sewer hookup worked fine. We had a concrete pad outside our door.
Bigger rigs should have no trouble getting in here. Best to reserve ahead for proper accommodations. - Howard Jaros

Just left Niagara Falls Campground and Lodging (Good Sams Club). We had read the negative reviews, but decided to try them for ourselves. Very disappointed. Owners are not customer friendly at all. It was overpriced, large rocks on narrow pads, no cable and the wifi was extremely poor. For a holiday (Labor Day) weekend, the campground was less than 25% full. Recommend seeking other accommodations if in the area. - MAVetter

About three trees in the park and I get parked next to one so I couldn't open my awning. Sites are very close and the loops are a bit tight. The pool was nice and clean as was the office/store. This really is just a glorified gravel parking lot with a few trees and grass at each site. They also had some housekeeping cabins. Take your passport and when the falls are full, go north to Niagara-on-the-lake. An old fashioned town with numerous tourist traps and quaint shops. Highly recommend a trip to both the forts, one nearby and the other on the opposite side of the river in New York. Don't miss the falls at night as they are lit up from across the Canadian side. Plan on two or three days if you want to take the Maid of the Mist boat as well. Worth the $$ just to feel the power of the falls. For thrill seekers, the Canadian side has a monster zip line, possibly 300 yards give or take that runs right down the edge of the river gorge. - bruisa

Small campground, close to the Falls. Rocky gravel roads but fairly level sites. Full hookups, good wifi but NO cable, though there is a fair limited antenna reception. Owners friendly but not overly outgoing. Small store with limited RV items...NO food items are available. Dog walk located at very front of campground We found it too far for our older dog especially with the rocky roadway. This campground is good for a short visit..not made for extended stays. Sites are close together but we were able to extend our sides and awning. Strict "No refund" policy but this is made clear at time of reservations. We would probably return. - Happy Camper 168
