We stayed here in our 40ft Motorhome over the Memorial Day weekend and were pleasantly surprised. It's a small park but has large pull-thus with 50 amp service. Everything is well maintained and very clean. Cell service is poor but the owners helped us Wi Fi enable our phone and we had no problem with calls. Saturday night they had a pot luck dinner and a great little band and we were invited to join them. We did and had a delightful, relaxing time. Very friendly people & owners. Will visit again. We camped at Lakeside Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice lake for fishing & kayaking. Poor cell service but had WiFi. My son & I had a great time here for Memorial Day weekend. Will stay again. Didn't like the pay per use showers. But was only $0.25. We camped at Lakeside Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This campground is about 6 miles from I 81 over a hilly twisting country road with the last 2 miles being dirt road. However, the dirt road was in good shape. The signage from the highway is good. The roads in the campground are gravel and narrow but we were able to maneuver our 40 foot motor home to our site but we un hooked the toad first. It was a pull thru in the pavilion section where 3 sites were lined up front to back. There was a fifth wheel in front of us and a travel trailer behind us. The site was grass and gravel with a fire ring and picnic table. The hook ups were adequate. There was a cable hook up but it did not work. The Wi Fi was great. The campground was very quiet with a pretty little lake with rental paddleboats and canoes. There were playgrounds for the kids. I wouldn't try this campground with anything bigger than a 40 foot motor home. We camped at Lakeside Campground in a Motorhome.

Too far off main highway, up steep hills, low trees in park and tight turns for unit 35' or larger. WI-FI and cell service non existent. Stayed over night and would not say again. Over priced and expect more from a Good Sam rated park. We camped at Lakeside Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

I called ahead asking about sites for big rigs. Was told they have a 60ft pull through. What they have is 3 sites in a row front to end, thank goodness no one else was there. Very tight getting in. Nothing around. Horribe, windy, hilly, dirt roads getting there. Camper and truck were filthy when we got there. No store to speak of. Just a tiny "hole-in-the-wall" type of campground. Stayed there for one night thinking a fairly quick off I-81. Terrible. Will never stay there again. We camped at Lakeside Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

About 6 miles from I-81 in the woods of NY. Pull thru sites are in a line at the top of the hill. Get directions. Don't trust your GPS. Staff was very friendly and helpful with directions when we left. Power (50 AMP) was good. Lots of seasonal or full timers near the lake. Quiet and peaceful. No road noise. Access is on paved road that turns to dirt which was full of pot holes and mud from lots of rain when we came in. We had no problem with a 40' motorhome with a toad. WiFi and AT&T cell was non existent, limited cable with poor quality, satellite impossible due to trees. We camped at Lakeside Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a destination campground geared for just getting away and camping. The campground surrounds a small lake. The staff is friendly and we had a escort to our site. The only downside was our site was about 15 feet from the main road out of the park, so we had a lot of traffic. Cell phone and Wi-Fi service were sporadic. Access from the south is via a narrow paved turning to gravel road. Access from the north is a paved narrow 2 lane road. We camped at Lakeside Campground in a Motorhome.

My grade of 6 is based on this CG being suitable for overnight or short-term campers. It is probably an 8 for the full-time and seasonal occupants which are the norm here. If you are looking for an overnight stay, I recommend you continue on (or stop before). We stopped for an overnight and this CG turned out to be more residential than camping. We were assigned a muddy and inconvenient space, I presume because this one was set aside for the occasional overnight. They had Wi-Fi but we were too far away for a signal.

The Pull-Thru was a little tight with some low branches but we got in OK. The park is very scenic but very remote. No cell phone service and no internet or cable TV. The park is clean and the owners are friendly. We would probably not stay here again as it is not near anything. We camped at Lakeside Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a nice place in the middle of nowhere. You are about 30 miles from Binghampton. But the views are beautiful and the people are friendly, the folks that own it were very nice. It is very quiet. No TV, cell phone or internet service. A great place to loaf. We camped at Lakeside Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is an old style campground, much like the way I remember camping when I started camping 25 years ago. No cookie cutter sites, that all look alike. There's a winding road around the lake, and the sites put in between the trees around the lake. If you like relaxing and fishing this is a good campground for you. I didn't like the 'catch and eat' fishing policy, because it's not a huge lake. There isn't much activities for kids or a pool. (My daughter wouldn't go swimming in the lake after she saw us fishing in the same spot). The owners were friendly; they walked around and visited each site to say hello. I think big rigs would have a problem here, because of narrow roads and overhang branches, but for us that added to the seclusion. We enjoyed this retro-campground, but I think I have been spoiled with the modern amenities. However I would return. We camped at Lakeside Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We visited on Memorial Day weekend and it was very crowded. The staff was cordial and tried to be helpful, but they were obviously overwhelmed by the number of customers. The campground is a hard drive from the interstate and I wouldn't recommend it for an overnight. Our site was supposed to be a pull-through, but we were actually just parked along the side of a road with our end slide hanging out over a side road about which the staff said, in a hopeful way, "No one is supposed to use that road." We were parked directly across from a pavilion where there were loud campground-sponsored games until 10:00 pm one night. Another nasty surprise: there is no cell-phone service unless you go to a phone booth at the office and use a cell booster. Forget about using your laptop's air card. Dogs are allowed, but the leash rules were not enforced and the only dog-walk area was badly in need of mowing. Although the town of Windsor is near by, it has no services that we could find. The nearest city is Binghamton, about 25 miles away. This campground would probably be OK if you lived in the area wanted to get away for the weekend with small kids. But if you are adults looking for a peaceful getaway, look elsewhere. I'd give them a lower rating, but I'm cutting them some slack because it was such a busy holiday weekend. We camped at Lakeside Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Wanted to update my review from 2007. We now are seasonal and have enjoyed Lakeside for the past two seasons. The views are fantastic. We travel almost 3 hours to get there when we have many campgrounds that are closer and we know we have that choice but we have not found one that has the views and other features that Lakeside offers such as the personal commitment by the owners. They are continuously updating the facilities, they truly enjoy the children and families. It is the perfect place. We are passionate about the choice we have made and have signed up for the next following year. We camped at Lakeside Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Lakeside Campground veraciously expresses the scenic beauty of Upstate New York and offers a variety of activities. The owners are ever present and go to great lengths to make campers feel at home. It is their passion and enjoyment in what they do which this reviewer feels created Lakeside Campground's unique selling point: A warm and wonderful community—including Ricky, the camp dog—making it the perfect place for a family either seasonally or just over a weekend. There is obvious pride in maintaining the grounds, as all sites and facilities (bathrooms and showers) are well kept and clean. The bottom-line is, when planning a family getaway, the Lakeside Campground will prove to be a nostalgic experience. We camped at Lakeside Campground in a Tent.
