Watkins Glen State Park, Watkins Glen, New York

Date of Stay: June, 2006 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

We have stayed in this park multiple times (always tent camping) and have been SO impressed. We were in Tuscarora, although all "six nations" of camping have decent sites. The sites are HUGE with full shade or full grass, depending on your preference. They have wood and ice on site at the campground check-in. The park has always been quiet. Between the full recreation options (think all board and sport games possible, 5 day a week formal rec program with pool table, badminton, shuffleboard, hay ride, etc., HUGE pool, gorge trail, other trails, and seneca lake around the corner, there is tons to do for kids. We even took them to a winery for a tour, which they loved. Bathrooms were cleaned often, although showers always had bugs/cobwebs up high. Only issues: no one mentioned when we booked the first time that there was a train behind our site (272)! We were woke up more than once with the very loud noise since it is only about 150 yards away. Of course the second time we camped there we were prepared and it didn't bother us at all-in fact my children brought coins for the train to smash! We will certainly go here again! We camped at Watkins Glen State Park in a Tent.
