Aug 2019 - $36.00
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

Enjoyed our one night transit stay. People very friendly. Easy pull through sites, level, gravel. Would stay again. - Jimbeau

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

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

This is one of my favorite parks to camp at. The beach is made from trucked in sand! The sand is nice and white, no gravel to be found at the beach! There is a diving board and slide in the deep end. A small splash pad is close enough to the lake to be able to watch kids in both at the same time. Small camper store, and an ice cream/concession stand. Ice cream is reasonably priced for being at a campground ($2.50 for a small). The trails are well maintained. Some are gravel and can easily fit a stroller or bikes. Other trails are just footpaths, but both are a great hike. The trails are not marked the best, but it's pretty easy to navigate them. It's a bit of work to get kayaks to the lake (if you are bringing our own), but worth it. It's pretty shallow through most of the lake. Which is awesome if you have an issue with deep water. There are no motor boats, so no waves from them. Fishing was good. Plenty of little things biting. A little bit more work to catch the big things, but they are in there. Coke vending machines in the campground are nice when you want a soda but don't have any! This time the park played a movie on the beach Saturday night, that was pretty cool. My kids all enjoyed the experience. My only two complaints are: The showers do require you to push a button/pull a string a lot to keep the water going for a shower, and if you don't overlap the pulls/pushes then you get hit with cold water again. and. There is only 1 playground by the beach, while it is nice, it's rather small. By the time I take my 4 kids there, we pretty much fill it. Some of the swings in the campground are just the A frames, with no swings. So the park could up it's playground game. - Sbrooks

The $28 rate included a $5/day surcharge for being from out of state. There is no water or sewer at the sites, but we were pleased to have 50 amp electric. There is a place to fill with potable water at the dump station before you come in. The roads in the park and campground are very good. The sites are just dirt (mud now), with a fire pit & very old picnic table, but plenty big enough for our TT & tow vehicle. Lady at check-in was super pleasant. We did get several OTA TV stations. We would return. - R&S

Interior roads very good but actual sites are hit or miss. Just dirt. No effort made to create a level pad of any sort. Any sort of out of state surcharge is guaranteed to disappoint & cost a point. Single dump for such a large CG must be very busy on a weekend. - Veebyes

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

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

Nice park, clean and nicely landscaped. A lot of seasonal people, but well kept. We had to stay out front in a pull thru, but we stayed only one nite, easy on/off interstate. They had a little "snack shack" open 6:30-8:30 for socializing and icecream. Owners on site and very nice - TBWard

Stayed in upper area. Great views. Long spaces. Steep hill up to top of camp but easy. Didn't use most facilities. Grass and gravel slots. Mostly open in transient slots it appears. - lefield

Beautiful views from our campsite and loved ice cream at the snack shack - KSTraveler

Clean, tidy campground many sights empty but maintained. Ringed around large field with fruit trees or in shady area under pines. Easy access from I81 but far enough off that no noise from it. CDN cash at par mid week. - Mcewena
Sep 2016 - $50.00
Caveat: the camp was closing, as almost all the seasonal people were gone. So the camp might not have been kept as well as it would be in the summer.
Do not expect 50 amps. We chose 50 amps when reserving the site, and the outlet was changed after we arrived. But the breaker remained a 30 amp, and that is what we got. - J M Rowe

We had electric and water hookup that worked fine (full hookups are available). Our 38' fifth wheel was an easy fit in our pull through site. Campsites are in a level, grassy field with lots of trees. Propane and camp store sales are available as is a laundry room. Staff was very friendly. The campground is close to town and an easy access off-81. We will definitely stay here again. - Melodycthomas

Used this park while visiting family in the area. There were only two choices, this one and one 500 feet down the road called Yellow lantern RV Park. I felt I make the right choice after staying there for two nights. - Dr4Film

Stopped here during a pouring rain. A fellow from the office went out to see which site had least water. This is an older park with older services, but they work. - Rv Sun Seeker
Oct 2016 - $24.00
Stayed here for a week. There are no 50amp sites only 30. Considering it was fall and cool, this worked out ok. We only used our AC a couple times but we couldn't use more than 1 heating element at a time (microwave and coffee maker, for example).
Would definitely not stay here in the summer time. One of their rules is you can't run your AC while you are off the property. That's not going to happen with us especially if we are leaving our two dogs home and have to leave.
Another negative is they have no sewer sites but the "honey wagon" comes around on Monday's and Fridays (extra cost involved).
The park was nearly empty so very quiet. We will be in the area next year at this same time and will be staying here again. All the sites are back in. - CaSm1993
