Rate is RPI rate. Staff were friendly but only one person was available to show us sites on a Sunday, so it took over an hour to find a site. Most sites are seasonal so "travelers" get sites that are not very level. This is a pretty resort and even though were were not seasonal members we still enjoyed free use of canoes, paddleboat and mini-golf. We prefer more quiet places but would return here because of the rate. WiFi is only available near specific locations and is slow - not worth paying for. - SDeasy

Rate reflects RPI Membership. The property is situated around Rainbow Lake. My guess is that a walk around the lake is about two miles. It's a beautiful place. There are plenty of amenities: two pools (one indoor), canoes and kayaks, tennis and volleyball courts, mini-golf, and much more. Over the weekend the place was packed and there were many activities, especially for teens and children. This is an old campground and that is quite apparent. The campsites are small, obviously planned before people traveled in the larger RVs of today. I tried three different campsites before I managed to get into one. Also, the roads are narrow and some are very steep. The “overnight” campground area has no sewer sites and power is 30 amps. The power and water hookups aren’t where you expect them to be. I had to get out a water hose I’d never used to reach water and I had to borrow an electric extension cord from the campground to reach the electric. Then, over the hot weekend, the voltage kept dropping below 102 volts which caused my trusty surge guard to shut the camper’s electric down. Once the weather cooled, the electric settled down. If you have a small camper you’ll love coming to this resort. If you have a bigger one, try to arrive on Sunday-Wednesday when there are plenty of campsites, then, in the overnight area, head for the first two roads up from the lake for the best chances of getting a site you can get in to and that will be somewhat level. The farther up the hill you go, the harder it will be to find a spot. - nazpaz

The reason I gave it an 8 is due to the season. The weather was only so so and peak season was over so we can only evaluate what was available. It is a private campground, part of the Coast to Coast and Resorts of Distinction networks. This is an old park but it is obvious the owners are working to improve it. We were told that it has changed ownership quite a few times over the last 5 to 10 years. There are a ton of things to do weather permitting. The activity list was unreliable due to people not showing up. The staff was awesome, very friendly and helpful. Very accommodating. Children and adults alike would be able to find something to do non-stop all day long. I was even impressed at all the activities scheduled this late in the year. There was an indoor pool and hot tub which was great. The adult lounge and game room were closed while they were setting up for an upcoming haunted house for October 8th, which I found to be a bit early and wondered why they had to shut down on a Saturday to start doing it while they still had quite a few campers here. You have a lot of choices for sites. Everything from full sun to complete shade. We had to change our site due to some standing water from a rain shower, they said no problem just look around and pick what ever you would like and let us know where, to be sure it isn't booked. There are mostly seasonal sites but they are all are very well maintained. The guest sites are pretty much in one section of the park. Of course home park members have the choice of the prime sections around the lake. We visited this park as Resorts of Distinction members, which is why the nightly rate of $1 (the form wouldn't let me put $0). Hope they are successful with new memberships because this park has awesome potential. It's great as it is, but with continued maintenance it could become a top notch resort. We read other reviews and went prepared with longer hoses and electric cables. We used them so it didn't create a problem for us. If you have short hoses and cords, it could create a big problem due to the placement of the hook ups. We will return to this park. - Our Beautious

We love the simplicity of this park. VERY informal! Yes, it's a mowed field for about 22 RVs but it has water, electric (30/50) and SEWER! Clean and well kept, lots of space between sites, mostly open with a few trees and has a fire ring. There is a clubhouse but we didn't use it. Didn't see separate bathrooms or laundry but maybe they're in the clubhouse? Right next to a beautiful golf course and driving range. We also found the Pat McGee Trail which is great for walking, running, bicycling or horse back riding. Like I said, a small - no frills park but the guy is nice and we like it here, we will return!! - 2VetsRVing

This is a small park on a huge mowed lot. We had huge spaces (we are traveling with friends in their own RV). We enjoyed having such an enormous amount of space to park our RV and also to walk our 3 large dogs. Much of the property is mowed but isn't used for RVs, and that was great for our dogs. The owner was very nice. - beckydmc

OK for an overnight stay, no amenities or things to do at park. Owner friendly, grass mowed, no trees. Right on highway and there is traffic noise. We stayed here because Allegany state park said they could not accommodate a rig our size, which we found later was not true. The state park is much nicer and would stay there next time. - trvlkids

We were treated horribly. Would strongly not advise anyone of color to camp at this site. We were watched like hawks and treated very poorly. Never again! We were decent people. Not disrespectful or rude. But we were treated very rude and we were disrespected like we were no good. Coffee pot had mildew in it and refrigerator was not working properly. We used ice and a cooler. - Awful1234_

We were in transit but planned to arrive early so we could drive through the lovely countryside. This area is known as the New York Amish Trail and there is very useful brochure and map of the area which the Campground provided. There are nearly 150 listed locations to explore including many Amish craft shops, museums and other points of interest. The Campground is also near the Allegany State Park which is beautiful. We intend to return and spend two or three days exploring the area more fully. - Alan S

Thought about trying to save some money and camp weekdays. Don't do it at this place. They give discounts only on the most expensive sites but you don't get to camp on them. A $28 site us Good Sam is $27. Sam with Passport.They say they have WiFi but only sometimes. Besides charging us a higher rate, they have pay showers too. I don't think our group will go back to this campground any time soon. - shell5

This campground has made a lot of improvements but needs a lot more. First, we had to clean up broken beer bottle glass and dog droppings from the site before backing in. Very shaded sites and very quiet. Attended their music festival and that was great. At midnight everything was quiet. They need to fix their water: very heavily salted and no pressure. We ended up filling our holding tank with fresh water so we could shower. They added a new dump station but it slopes away from the dump so you can not empty your tank. Also the cement pad is not wide enough so your tires hang off. Staff was very friendly. - shell5

Highbanks Campground, while situated on the Alleghany Reservoir is anything but scenic. At first glance of the campground map, we thought we had lucked out with our site. It appeared to back up to the water. As we made our way through the campground, we were less and less enthusiastic with the campground as a whole and were even more horrified when we pulled into our site. What looked on the map to be a lovely scenic location was actually a gravel driveway which backed straight up to a six foot chain link fence with no views at all, except for that of steel. The entire site was perhaps 40' x 40' and privacy was non-existent. Out of 77 electric sites, it appeared that 70 were seasonal rentals. Upon arrival the staff could barely even manage to give us a map to find our campsite and asked us to return again in the morning to pay, even though they were still technically 'open'. While our 9pm arrival may have been too late for the staff, campers were apparently in full swing, evidenced by all the driving around the grounds on mini-bikes, ATVs etc. screaming and hooting. Dogs barked and kids screamed until nearly midnight. With little or no space between campers, the screaming and dog barking may as well have been in the same 'room'. This is certainly NOT the quiet getaway from it all kind of campground we had hoped for. The restrooms and showers were atrocious. In fact, on one visit, there was no toilet paper at all in the ladies room. I would not venture to shower in this facility. Not only did I question whether there was sufficient privacy between the mens and womens sides, but it was clearly unclean. In my phone call to the grounds ahead of time, we expressed interest in Allegheny State Park (which was of course sold out for camping). We were assured it was only a few minutes down the road. In fact it was a full 20 minutes away, door to door. If you're looking for a campground where you can pass the 'Gray Poupon' to your neighbor without leaving your camp chair, where you can compete with your neighbors for the most gaudy and outlandish Christmas light display on your 'site', where the sounds of jet skis, dogs barking and kids playing waaaaay past any reasonable quiet time are the norm, then this is just the spot for you. If, on the other hand, you'd like a little privacy, you want to hear your own campfire crackle, you'd like to hear the birds sing in the morning and you can live without Christmas in July, I would pick another site. - cazcamper

People behind the counter were pleasant and helpful. Some sites had the water and electrical outlets separated by 50-75 feet. Bathrooms were pickup and generally clean but there were many very small toads or frogs on the walls. The pool was new and clean. There was a pavilion next to the pool with picnic tables and really nice barbeques. - Doncanni

This is a grand old CCC built park. Like so many state parks these days, It suffers from long term neglect. The showers and restrooms have pealing paint everywhere making them look dirty. Sites are fairly close together. Maps are not detailed enough to find water spigots (only two in the B loop). The lack of park staff in such a vast park is frustrating. Signage is just as bad as the maps. We had a family gathering at one of the picnic areas, All guests got lost. I noticed that HistoriCorp was working on some of the historic cabins. Maybe there is hope for this grand old gem. - ScottfromSilver

First time to this park. Sites very close and hard to get into with bigger rigs. We had the stream behind us and we were on a slant the whole time and at times felt like we would fall into the stream. It was especially rainy when we were there and the rain made a stream right through the site with rushing water. Amazing park with lots to see and do. Pick up the weekly activity sheet and kids had choices of where/what to do and ranger led activities. Never short on something to do. Obviously, it would be awesome if state parks would get water and sewer hookups. We did see bears, not at our campsite but driving around. You just have to be smart about not keeping food outside and you will be fine. Next time would like to stay on Quaker side, seems like not as crowded and bigger sites. Wi-Fi only at main administration building and that was hit or miss but at least it was available if needed. Beautiful scenery. - aka4170

I really enjoyed my one week stay at Shamrock Pines. When I arrived, the owner met me at the entrance and helped me to unhook my car from the motorhome, and he was pleasant and helpful the entire week. The rest rooms were clean, the campground was lovely, with open sites as well as sites under the pines. Laundry prices were very reasonable.
Wifi is very important to me, and that was only available in the office area. But, my mifi device worked just fine, even though cell service was marginal. - CamperChris4

Nice little CG. Nothing negative. We only stayed one night during a transit. I'd say a good 75% of the sites are taken up by people who leave their campers there all year. They had a lot of activities/play areas set up for kids so I imagine this wouldn't be a place for peace and quite during spring and summer weekends. - Goodcruisin

Electrical updated and sewer system, bath house, laundry, roadways. ALL are NEW as of July 2018 and nice. Owners are very nice and helpful. All camp sites are well maintained. A great place to stay. - rcmozingo

A little off the beaten path, in the hills above Falconer. Very friendly staff and long termers. The showers & toilets are "rustic" but clean, no sewer but 1 dump site in park. They have some funky gray water system with busted up pvc pipes you just shove your drain pipe into. Must drain gray only, very slowly to avoid backup. And shortly after you see your gray water spreading across the gravel driveway. Site was gravel pull thru and level. - rvrrat520

The campground is on a hill and was very picturesque with nice views of the surrounding area. This is a very well maintained facility and I think each site had a huge flower pot with several different colored flowers which were well groomed. Near my site #621 at the top of the hill was a bird house which made it enjoyable to see all the different birds. This would be great for families with children as they have a pool, a bounce pad, three different playgrounds. I wasn't able to ride my bike with my dog trailer behind because of the hills, but other campers did seem to enjoy navigating the hills with their bikes. I found the park easy to navigate around with my fifth wheel. The wooded trails were a treat for Callie, my German Shepherd. Next summer a different part of the country but if I am ever in the area I would definitely want to come back here again. - Camper Jay

Triple R is very nice. I was there on a weekend and it got a bit tight. It's a super clean and tidy campground with extremely friendly staff. It's a hilly place and the lots are a bit sloped but it was fairly easy to level my trailer. It wasn't enough to detract from a very clean site with easy to access hookups. No complaints other than $44 per day is a bit steep for a retired guy on SS. - hombre849

This campground is built on a hillside with some fairly steep roads and sites terraced. Gravel pull-thru was pretty level, utility connections were fairly easy, wicked good Verizon signal with tower atop a nearby hill. - jbrucemagon

Older campground that is 95% seasonal campers. It has a lot of campsites interspersed between trees on hillsides. Many of the RVs have been there for quite some time and people have settled in adding storage sheds, decks, and decorations. Pass through campers are assigned a site in a flat grassy area with electric and water service. These sites are not clearly designated and we were told to park where we wanted. Interior roads need to be regraded and filled with new gravel. The restroom and shower we looked into was old, in poor condition, and needed a good cleaning. The entire campground could use some TLC but the seasonal campers seemed content. - linnemj

We got here 5/25 about 330pm. They didn't have my Reservation I called it in about 6 weeks ahead of time. But they had room and took care of me. We got in and all set up, then after Dinner we took a walk around to find the Bath House. There are 3 of them. The one we found was filthy and had a sign on the door to clean up after yourself, or lose the Bath House. It never was cleaned the whole weekend.
Saturday after Breakfast we asked one of the Seasonals about the trash. She told me to take it home with us. We later found the Dumpster and used it. I don't think she was being mean, I don't think she knew.
Like the other reviews say: it is a quiet camp site. On Saturday night they had Country Music, a live local band I guess. They were pretty good and played for quite a while.
It's a good Campground but needs a lot of work to bring it back. But for us it was just a half way point to family and Niagara Falls. - ztoymaker

Stayed here a couple of nights in August. Overall, a great couple of days. Just a beautiful, quiet area. With the advertised rates so low, my expectations were not high on the actual facilities but I was pleasantly surprised. The restroom/shower near my rig was spotless. My 50 amp hookup had no issues and my campsite and more than enough room for my rig.
At $40 a night, this was best value I've seen in a long time. Other thing I noticed about Woodside was that the staff and the other campers were very friendly but they kind of left you alone if that is what you wanted. I can't say enough about how beautiful that area is. - RVTraveler69
