“Lovely park, crowded sites, close to town”

Overall Rating

The campground is 10 minutes from downtown Ithaca, yet it’s quiet and hidden away from non-campers. The falls are beautiful. There’s a good trail system.

The campsites are nearly all flat and have enough space for a van like ours, but any kind of RV would be a challenge. Better for tent camping.

That said, there’s no separation between sites. Just a marker on the road, and the sites aren’t huge. So be prepared to get to know your neighbors!

A site is technically just $20, but the reservation fee is another $9. NY, eh?
