“Campfires, kids, and plenty of shade”

Overall Rating

This is very much a weekend hotspot for Rochester / Buffalo area folks to camp with their families. While Tuesdays and Wednesdays are fairly quiet, Thursday - Monday is aburst with chatter, laughter, the occasional crying child, and campfire smoke drifting from nearly every fire pit in the campground.

On weekends, kids own the roads, roaming in packs on the bicycles and scooters. The bathrooms are muddied and the showers are in constant use. Slightly inebriated parents sit in their folding chairs hoping that someone else is keeping an eye on their kids for a moment.

This is a beautiful park - well wooded with nice seclusion between sites. The lake is a 1/4mile walk from the camping area and has a swimming area, a few playgrounds and paved trails running along it.

The sites here range from well-leveled to janky as hell. If the site listing says 'moderate grade' it means 'good luck getting level in anything more than a pop-up, fool'. The jankiness of many of the sites in terms of levelness is the reason for 4 stars rather than 5.

This is an electric only campground. Some sites have 50A - most have 30A. There is a 3 lane dump station that gets pretty backed up on Sunday mornings, and doesn't offer a water fill. There are threaded spigots dotting the camping loops where you can fill if necessary.

Also, don't bother trying to extend or reserve a site through the park office - they are always 'booked full' as they don't get updates on when a site is released due to cancellation. Just go to Reserve America.

We stayed in two different sites in loop D and the Verizon service was enough to work and do some streaming - 52down (woah!) and 1.6 up (eh) - without use of our booster. AT&T was 3.4 down and 1.25 up - without the use of our booster.

There is a very nice campground store selling everything from boiled peanuts and ice cream to insect spray and firewood. There is a nice laundry facility attached to the store ($2/wash, $2/dry). On Saturdays the park opens a rec hall with games and crafts.

If you're a large/tall rig, make sure to avoid the Lake Ontario State Pkwy coming in / out - there are several 11' bridges between the park and Rochester.

“Nice Park but not our first choice.”

Overall Rating

We were here for Memorial Day weekend and it was packed as is every place. There is good separation between sites. It is a very woodsy campground that is a short walk to Lake Ontario.

We have been having a very wet spring so the site we had was quite swamped. We wee hoping that it would dry out but that never happened.

Cell service is just about non existent even with my booster.
