We stayed in the 700 loop (site 721) which was a very nice site with a lot of shade, a fairly level gravel area for the RV and some grassy area for the dogs. The 700 and 800 loops are the only ones that allow pets, and it seems that not everyone is careful to clean up after their dogs, so watch your step in those loops! An informal walking trail started right at our campsite. The electric service box had 50, 30 and 20 amp receptacles and was wired correctly. (The 50 amp plug was anyway, I did not check the others.) I would definitely choose this site again, but there were several nice sites in this loop, some were very shaded and others were more open. The biggest detractor for this park, like most NY state parks it seems, is the lack of water and sewer hookups. I stopped at the spigot at the entrance to the loop to fill my fresh water tank, but that blocks the road for everyone else due to the faucet having to be held open. However, what wasn't mentioned in other reviews is there are actually similar spigots spread throughout the entire loop, and some are definitely close enough to sites to be able to fill your tank if you have a long enough hose. I suspect that if you feel like carrying 100-200' of hose, you could refill from just about any site in the loop. Also, it appears that only the spigot at the entrance to the loop as a "hold open" type, the rest are standard spigots. Because we ran out of water, we had to use the bathrooms and shower on the last night we were there. The bathroom cleanliness was about average for a facility of this type but, the showers were a bit dirty and gross. The water temperature cannot be controlled, but at least it was warm. There are 3 dump stations upon exiting the park which is nice, but unfortunately there is no garbage can there to dispose of gloves, etc. and the rinse water hose does not have a garden hose connector on the end so it is impossible to use a built-in tank flush system. Also, it uses a sort of lever valve that makes it difficult to control the water pressure, and the water pressure is very high! It would be very easy to get that water splashing everywhere while you hose off your sewer hose and connectors. The staff was friendly, the campground was nice, and the park itself is very pretty. I would stay here again, but next time I'm bringing more water hose! Because of the lack of water/sewer hookups, this campground is best for short stays.

A very nice park with a super friendly owner and staff. The owner's son helps to manage the park and he lives right on-site. Propane refills available for $1/lb. Boat rentals are also available. We rented a pontoon boat which has seen better days but was seaworthy. Findley Lake has a lot of weeds though, so you will be constantly reversing the engine to try to dislodge them. I didn't go in the heated pool but saw many campers take advantage of it and it looks very nice. While we were there it looked like they were in the process of building a small mini-golf area. The other campers were super friendly. The sites are very shady which I love. The roads driving in to some of them are a bit tight but certainly manageable. Most of the sites are back-in but there are a few pull-throughs as well. We stayed in site 19 which was very shady and had a large area for parking cars, setting up tents. or building a fire. Right across from site 19 is site 27 which looked like a very nice site. It had a bit of lawn area and backed onto a creek rather than being all gravel. The site we stayed at did not have a black water sewer hookup, only grey water. There are some black water hookups in the park. They are all holding tank style which the owner pumps out once a week. There was 30 and 20 amp electric available at the site, both of which were wired correctly. Cable TV was a nice bonus. Despite some info in other reviews to the contrary, there is No Wi-Fi in the park. I confirmed this with the owner. Some of the permanent residents have WiFi access points, but of course these are locked down and not public. I would not hesitate to go back to this campground!
