This NY state park is fairly easy to get to off of Interstate 88. When we stayed there the only camping area open was the Hilltop unit, so I can only comment on that area. Also, there had been a lot of rain and the rain continued while we were there so we were not able to check out the area extensively. There are a very limited number of electric sites and many of them are too small or sloped to be usable for most camping units. Many of the sites have no gravel, just on the grass. We are only 27 feet long, so had no problem in getting into our site, but I would not really call the Hilltop camping area big rig friendly. The power pedestals are shared by two sites, so will be very difficult to access from some sites. It will take a very long cord. The dump station is quite a ways from the Hilltop camp unit. The campground is pleasant, with some sites in the woods and some out in the open. We were able to get satellite from out site and our Verizon phone and internet worked well. It was nice and quite at night (only about 10 other spaces occupied) and fairly dark, which we like. There is a nice warm glow from a cola machine, which does not really add to the ambiance. We did not use the restrooms or showers, but did look and they seem clean. Overall everything looked a bit tired and rundown. Like many of our state parks it could use some help. We would stay here again as an overnight or two but would not go out of our way to visit this park. We camped here in a Motorhome.

We camped at an electric site in hilltop area. Had a nice large shaded site. Many sites in this area in open field. Has good clean restrooms and shower facilities. A little far from Cooperstown, which is why we stayed here. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.

This is a beautiful state park that has not been discovered. The lake is pristine with boat rentals available. There are no planned activities for children or adults- just mother nature at her best! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
