The road to enter and exit the park is a long, narrow, bumpy, winding road cut through the woods. You'll need to take it very slow and easy. There was one particular curve on the way in that we barely made in our 40 foot rig. Once in the park, the roads are EXTREMELY dusty. However, we found the staff to be very friendly and helpful and the campground itself is very nice. Sites are grassy and nice, but not too level, so a good amount of leveling will be necessary. Also, considering the grass sites and the dusty roads, I would think that it could get a bit messy if an extended rain were to occur. We might have considered staying there again if it weren't for the roads used to enter and exit the park.
This is a very nice, well kept campground. The owners are very friendly and helpful, although they do seem to have a lot of rules that they review upon check in. The only outstanding negatives were that the roads were very dusty and there were low hanging tree limbs that really needed to be trimmed up in order to avoid damaging higher rigs (Class A motor homes and 5th Wheels). This was the reason for my 8 rating instead of a 10. As we were there to visit nearby relatives, we didn't have time to take advantage of the parks amenities, but everything seemed very well maintained. We would camp there again if we knew for sure that the low hanging limbs were trimmed up.
You have to drive along a bumpy road to get to the park where you then have to climb a good sized hill up to the entrance of the park. If you have kids, this is great campground in which to keep them occupied. There are a lot of activities for the kids. Check out their website for all of the details. If you're looking for a place to spend a nice quiet weekend, this is NOT the place to do it. The sites are absurdly close to each other and the sites are very unlevel. So much so, that we had a difficult time getting our rig level. The campground is also extremely dusty. Your rig will need a very thorough cleaning by the end of your stay. Staff is almost non-existent when it comes to keeping order in the park. It's not unusual to have people walking right through your campsite at any given time. Considering how small the sites are, they have to walk right under the awning in most cases. Store staff is rude and not at all friendly. In summary, a great place for the kids, but not recommended for an relaxing adult stay.
Not a bad campground for an overnighter or quick weekend getaway. Nice lake with a swimming area. They also offer lake fishing and boat rentals. There are a lot of seasonals, but with the exception of just a few, most are kept up reasonably well. There are some areas of the park that could use a little cleaning up, but not too bad overall. There are no sewer hook ups at the sites. They offer honeywagon service for extended stays and there is a dump station available on premisis. They also have a recreation center with planned activities (weekends). We were camped there on an off weekend, so there were a lot of unoccupied sites. However, judging from the width of many of the sites, it seems that on a busy or Holiday weekend this place would tend to feel crowded.
This campground needs a lot of clean up. A lot of seasonal's with dumpy looking trailers and junk scattered around them. The campground staff seemed friendly. However, the camp office/store was run down and needed a good cleaning. We had a difficult time getting level in the site that we were assigned. We only used this park for an overnight stop over. For that purpose it was OK. With some elbow grease and some discipline, this might have the potential to be a nice campground, but it would take a lot of work. We will try to avoid this park when traveling through the area in the future.
Although I agree with other reviews that this park is a little pricey. However, it is an extremely convenient place to stay when visiting and taking in the sites and activities of Frankenmuth. The park is nice and clean and very family oriented. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful as are most of the people of Frankenmuth. We were there to attend a music festival at the Festival grounds which is just up the street from the park. It is also nice place to bike ride through the town. If there were any negatives, it was that the sites were very narrow. Our stay was very enjoyable. We will return in 2007.
Very nice campground. We camped there over Labor Day weekend and had a great time. If I had to find a minus it would be the flies (sand flies I believe). Be sure to bring along the bug spray. The staff was friendly and the seasonal campers were very friendly as well. Nice recreation hall too. Since this was a holiday weekend, they had live music on Saturday and Sunday night. A very family oriented campground. We will be returning.
Nice campground just outside of Watkins Glen, NY. Well kept up. Showers and restrooms very clean. Our site was nice and level. Friendly staff. Suggest entering the campground from the south on Rt. 414. If traveling in from the north on Rt. 14, will have to climb a long hill from a dead stop at a traffic signal at the bottom of the hill. We plan on returning in 2006.
This is by far one of the best RV Parks in Central NY State. It was clean, quiet, roomy and the staff was pleasant and helpful. The public restrooms and showers were spotless. The sites were paved and level. The grounds and roadways are kept in excellent condition as are the nature trails. There is also an "on-call" 24 shuttle service to and from the Turning Stone Casino and Resort. This park is a must-do for a great RV experience.
This campground is slightly run down and in need of maintenence in several areas. They do have a nice restaurant and lounge that serves great food and is clean. Off of the restaurant, they have a nice big deck overlooking one of the lakes. They also have a nice banquet hall for group functions. There is a nice new swimming pool for campers use. There is also a softball diamond and three picnic pavillions avaiable for group use. There is also a small playground. The biggest detriment to this campground is that there is absolutely no water activities (other than fishing) allowed on any of the four lakes within the campground! No swimming, boating etc. The water in the lakes seemed somewhat stagnet, probably from lack of use. To get to the weekend sites, you have to drive across a narrow causeway between two of the lakes. This can be tricky in a motorhome or any larger rig, especially at night. One false move, and you could be down an embankment and into the water. The sites are spacious and clean and relatively quiet. We did have a problem with one overnighter in a beat up motorhome that insisted on staying up with a couple of friends drinking themselves into a stupor around the campfire and being somewhat noisy until dawn. We advised the management but aren't sure if any action was taken. The noisy party left the next day anyway. It seems that rule enforcement could be handled a little better by the management. The dumpster was overflowing trash onto the ground and the insects around it were unbearable. This campground seems to be geared more towards seasonal sites and longer term occupants. There are very few weekend/overnight sites. This is an OK campground for an overnight or short weekend stay. There isn't much to do for kids other than fishing or swimming. Now that we know what to expect, we would go back if only for a quick weekend getaway.
