14 RV Parks near Candor, New York
Sep 2017 - $25.00
This is a terrible park for RV's. The open grass/mud field has a few W/E (30A) posts around the perimeter, but sites are not delineated and the power has no breaker switch so you have to plug in hot. The field is not level and has some deep pits to maneuver through. To get to the park you have to navigate a narrow uphill rutted gravel road with tree branches taking swipes at your rig. The park is way out in the boonies. It is a Passport America park but after the discount they then tack on a $10 fee for electricity use, basically negating the discount. I tried to extend my leveling jacks (40' class A mh) but they just extended underground about 8" deep. They don't even provide garbage cans/dumpsters, but tell you they are a "carry in, carry out" park. We were dead dog tired or would have pulled down the road and found a wide spot in town. Don't waste your time or money here. - rvrrat520

This park is truly off the beaten path. It is very secluded, and has miles of walking trails.
It is difficult to get to, as there is a steep washed out driveway. If you have 4 wheel drive- low range, that is a plus. The owners are very friendly and helpful.
We stayed there for a week in September, 2014 and it was one of the most relaxing weeks we have had in a long time.
There are no sewer hookups, and the dump station looks very hard to get to.
If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle, and back to nature, this is the place to do it. There is a laundry in Candor, and a little ways further is the sweet little town of Owego. - Jimal

This campground has lots of space and is well maintained. The pads are pretty beat though. - Bsedor

Well maintained county park. FHU with 50 amp in some sites. It's on the river so fishing is available if you want. Large grassy areas. A fenced in dog park too. - JoeH

No discount rate offered for our 7 night stay. Site 7 is a gravel/grass site located on the pull-through loop that offers 30 amp, water and sewer. The rate for 30 amp electric is $25. We had good Verizon voice and data reception and good DishTV satellite reception. Trains run close to the park and the train horns can be disturbing during the night. Hickories Park is owned by the Town of Owego and is very well maintained. We would stay here again. - Dave51

We were driving home from N.C. to Peterborough Ontario. Stayed at this camp site. When we arrived, they were friendly enough, but the place was pretty barren. After setting up near the water and wanting to connect to WIFI, we had to call and she advised it was $2.50 per phone/tablet and it was only 24 hours. Plus there wasn't any streaming ?? When my husband went to take a shower in the bathrooms (outdated) you had to "HOLD" the string to have water stay on??. Seems like they penny pinch and are not willing to upgrade anything. They should sell and retire and let a more enthusiastic person/people run. Never again and will not recommend. Do not bring kids to this place, nothing really for them to do. Even the water area (small lake) was closed down during the week. - Lise D

Lovely CG with a lake in the center. After a hectic labor day week it was nice to sit outside and relax in a nice quiet park with a lake. It had rained a lot so the site was pretty muddy. You need to pay for WiFi but is was barely usable. The bathrooms though clean were not very inviting and full of bugs, they definitely need an upgrade. Be sure to pay attention to the directions on the web site, there is a 12' bridge that you need to avoid. If in the area we would probability stay here again. - newbies2016

This is a somewhat hidden gem in central New York. Campsites surround a small yet scenic lake. Some sites are in the woods, some are open with some shade. Sites are roomy and most seem to be reasonably level. We stayed for two nights and wished we could have stayed longer. Most open sites are grass, those in the woods are gravel/dirt. Management was friendly and helpful. Park is well-maintained but could use some modernization. Family owned for 33 years, and owners are thinking about selling. - DrLewie

We were parked in the newer section which has flat gravel sites that are quite level. The over-all appearance of the park seems to have gone downhill since last time we were here, two or three years ago. The showers and bathrooms were dirty and unpleasant. Overall everything has a mild appearance of disrepair and lack of maintenance. I think the park may be suffering from a lack of financial support. Our site had electric, but no water or sewer hookup. There are some back-in sites with full hookups, but the do no look level, and appear a little hard to get in with our 40-foot RV. - hoppytoad

We had reserved a spot for our 40', with electric. The site was a back in and up a fairly steep slope, which made it impossible for us to back in to with our tow bar. We elected to move to a non-electric site in a big grassy area. This worked out because it was still cool and we didn't need a/c. Generator hours were short. Besides the area we were in, which had few trees, the rest of the sites were in the woods, tough to navigate through with a big rig. The park itself was beautiful with the waterfalls and trails. Verizon signal was weak. Main access to the CG was through a bridge and you unhook your car by the office. Firepits and tables provided. - dorcol

One of our favorite places to stay. Electric sites fill up fast, so reserve ahead. Most sites are good for big rigs, but not all. Swimming is great , hiking Lucifer Falls is spectacular. - Ralph Hunt

Rental RVs are absolutely disgusting. No hot water, moldy rotten floors, water damaged wood, stained mattresses,stained carpets, propane leaks, old food left from last renters, holding tank full, stove missing parts and not working, mice were storing birdseed in a drawer. Rented for 3 nights. Spent 1 night in first junk trailer. Had so many issues we were moved to another trailer that was only marginally better. Stayed 2nd night and checked out a day early. Owner refunded 3rd night rental fee. These trailers should never be rented out again and should probably go to the junkyard. Pool was okay. Clubhouse was old and run down. - JJZS

Old park, difficult to get to. New owners making improvements. Not recommended right now. - Jim and Lynda

We happened to come after a lot of rain. To get to our site we had to go through grass. We sunk! There needed to be gravel put down like all other campgrounds we have been to! The roads going through campground were in need of gravel also! We felt lucky to get out of campground without having to be towed out. It's a mud hole when it rains. I wouldn't take that chance! You also have to pay for WiFi. - Sincere

This camp ground is on 80 acres in the hills outside Marathon NY. The owners are on site and always around. They are welcoming and very friendly. The staff is also accommodating. The sites are long pull though gravel, on terraces. They over look the lake in the center of the camp ground. One major complain is they are not very level. We got level, but the front wheels were off the ground. Each site has a picnic table and fire ring. All the utilities are convenient, easy to hook up, and worked well. The grounds are grass with trees on some sites. There are a lot of seasonal campers in various levels of repair. Most all of the treed sites are seasonal. The roads are all gravel, with a fair amount of potholes. They are narrow and have some tight corners. There is nothing that makes this park stand out, The location and owners make this camp ground. The few negatives keep it from receiving a higher rating. Rated as Average. We would say again. - Pacatrader

We spent 1 month plus 4 days at Country Hills (rate does not reflect paying for electricity). This was a great campground in a great location for exploring the area. The campground owners were the best host (and hostess) that we have ever encountered in our 4 years of full timing! Verizon Wifi is spotty and iffy, some days good and some days not so good. Our pull through full hook up campsite was all gravel with grass in between the sites. There is a fire ring on the site which we did not use. Did not use the bath house. There are no amenities but there is a catch and release pond if you are into fishing and a small playground for children. Has an enclosed Pavilion that can be used for Rally's. Cortland is 12 miles away for groceries and Ithaca about 24 miles for larger shopping and restaurants. Very quiet at night and the stars are gorgeous. We did experience a lot of rain while there but it was not a major issue. The owner takes good care of interior roads which are dirt and gravel. We enjoyed Taughannock Falls State Park on one of our excursions and also the State Fair in Syracuse. Call campground for directions as the GPS will likely guide you in a route that is not conducive to big rigs. - eaglesfan
