“An average campground, but within walking distance of Watkins Glen.”

Overall Rating

Location is the main draw for this RV Park. It is an easy walk to Walmart or into town, and across the street is a small park right on the Seneca Lake. We walked our dog there daily and he loved to get wet at the little beach. The RV park itself we found to be rather cramped and unattractive. It's basically rows of RVs on a grassy field with not much spacing between them (though we have definitely seen smaller sites elsewhere). They have lines spray painted on the grass and you need to park within those lines. Unfortunately for us, staying within the lines meant the front/side of our motorhome was smushed into the tree on our site. We had someone trim a few branches so we could open our door, but we couldn't open our awning at all. Our fire ring was all the way at the front of the site, right next to the road, which was strange. Most of the sites are occupied by semi-permanent trailers and fifth wheels (and a few mobile homes) that appear to get intermittent use (e.g. weekend visits). The WiFi worked decently during the day, and we had strong Verizon and AT&T for evenings and weekends. Given the high price ($55 daily or $47 weekly) we found that the "near town" location didn't make up for the averageness of the campsites/campground. If you really want to be walking distance from town and don't mind somewhat cramped sites, this may be a good option. The pizza place a few blocks away (Jerlando's) was excellent (be sure to get some garlic knots too), and the Chinese take-out (Lucky Star) in town was also good.
