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. We camped at Top-A-Rise Campground in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Top-A-Rise Campground in a Motorhome.

The new owners are now in their 3rd summer. The intent is to get as many perm people as possible and they are succeeding. Everything is nice and neat and even their WIFI is OK. The sites are grass and with a large rig it is sometimes hard to keep from sinking but we did OK. The shower house is clean as are the restrooms in the upper half but they are nothing but an outhouse that has had plumbing put in them. No sinks just 2 stalls. The owners are very nice but some of the perms seem to have taken charge of the CG and yell at you if you go over the 5 MH speed limit by even a mile per hr. You certainly don't get much for your money here especially with no sewer hook-up but that seems common in the east. The dump station is indeed right along the road and you block traffic when using it. It is very quiet and peaceful there though. We camped at Top-A-Rise Campground in a Motorhome.

Overall Rating:

We ended up here over Labor Day weekend because we couldn't find another campground with availability along our route to Niagara Falls due to the holiday. However, we were pleasantly surprised with the campground. As others have mentioned, it is a fairly basic campground, not a "resort", but the new owners are very friendly and helpful, and are working to improve the campground. It's located in a remote but scenic area about 8 miles off the interstate, and is completely surrounded by a public golf course (we almost never saw golfers though). Most of it is wooded, though our site was in a clear area near the large and frequently-used playground. It is mostly occupied by seasonal or full-time families, however they were some of the friendliest residents we've come across in our travels (often if a campground is mostly permanent residents they ignore short-term visitors like us) and all the sites were clean and tidy. Everyone had a smile and wave as we walked our dog through the campground. They only have 30 amp power, and our site had a grey water disposal (first time we've come across that) so we only had to use their dump station on the way out for our black tank. The price was good for what we got (it was about 50%-60% of what other campgrounds were charging during the holiday weekend), and during weekdays with Passport America it would be even cheaper. No WiFi, but our AT&T and Verizon worked fine. Objectively, the campground alone is probably a "7" but due to how welcomed we felt we really enjoyed our stay, and the price was great, so it earns an "8" instead. We'd gladly return if passing through the area again in the future. We camped at Top-A-Rise Campground in a Motorhome.

If driving a big rig, be sure to call and ask for directions. There are some narrow hilly roads nearby and the GPS will take you on them by default.

Nice grassy park. New owners in the last 2 years. They have cleaned it up and removed the old rigs that were there. Paid 14.00 first night, but then hit memorial day, then paid full price. Quite a few seasonal for the summer, but all very nice and well kept site. No dump in sites. Nice play area for kids. We camped at Top-A-Rise Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Stayed here to go top niagara falls. It's a 2 hour drive, but couldn't get anything closer over memorial weekend. An amish woman came around the park with her horse and buggy and two children selling homemade baked goods.

Very basic / old park with no real amenities and lots of seasonals. But, it is great for a night or 2 and you can't beat it for the price (PA rate listed). Also very quiet here. We camped at Top-A-Rise Campground in a Motorhome.

Price is Passport America rate and worth the drive. It is about 6 miles from the interstate. The owner/manager is very friendly and accommodating. He showed us another site when my wife preferred something different. The park is extremely quiet at night. Our site was level grass with 30 amp electric and water with an easy dump station on the way out. The gravel interior roads were in good shape. The bathrooms and shower house looked like a step above an outhouse, but no problem for us as we use our own. The was also no laundry. My higher rating reflects the feel of the park and the friendliness of the people. We camped at Top-A-Rise Campground in a Motorhome.

Run down showers badly in need of updating. Trashy buildings line the way back to campsites. Road badly in need of grading after heavy rains. Sewer hookups are available, but not on transient sites. Dump station very close to road by shower house and toilet building that we didn't enter. Rate is based on Passport America membership, not worth $26 a night. Would we stay again? Yes, since we are fully self-contained. We camped at Top-A-Rise Campground in a Motorhome.

We chose this campground because it belongs to Passport America, so we only paid $13 per night. For us price is more important that amenities. But we loved this place because it was out of the way (about 5 miles from the interstate) and because it was so peaceful. The owner is a very nice, sociable chap. A good choice for us We camped at Top-A-Rise Campground in a Motorhome.
