Parked here during a rally. Easy access from the freeway. - Mustcamp

Camped here in a PUP for the Right Coast Car Show and had a good time. I've said that the rest rooms where not clean because it appears some scum bag had spread "crap" all over one stalls walls and toilet & it was not cleaned up the 5 days that I was there. We stayed on the race track infield and the location was great. The ONLY minus was that one stall being munged up! Would recommend! - Star Boy

So glad we found this campground. Very convenient being only a few miles off the NYS Thruway. The kids loved the pool, which was very clean, as were the bathrooms. There were no issues with the electric or water and the staff couldn't have been more friendly. Loved the fact that they had a bar & restaurant on site as we were tired and not in the mood to cook. The food & service was excellent. Not at all what you would expect for a campground. - Average Guy

This is the second time we stayed at this park. First time was 16 years ago and we were disappointed back then. There has been little to no real upgrades to this park since then. Water pressure was 20 PSI and at times less. We used a Hughes Autoformer during this stay because last time the power was so bad and I didn't want to chance it. No sewer. For $45.00 a night we had 30 amp power and water only, that is all the park provides. All the facilities were dated 16 years ago and there have been no improvements since then. Restroom cleanliness unbelievably remains an issue with some unusable. Remember, $45.00 a night. Mostly permanents at the park and they are parked one on top of another. Roads are in rough shape. - The Man with No Name

We stayed in the overflow area (loved it) on Labor Day Weekend 2016. We were very happy with our stay. It was very quiet and spacious.
Arcade/Game room was a nice addition, not alot of games but some and could use a little TLC. Showers/bathrooms could use some updating, brightening up, and minor repair and there's only one area of them. Bar/restaurant had a huge deck with a beautiful view (deck could use a little TLC) pool (right below deck)was clean and well maintained. variety of choices on the full food menu and both food and alcoholic drinks were reasonably priced. WIFI available. Friendly fellow and seasonal campers. There was entertainment and activities for both adults and kids. Bring your own wood. No issues with water, electric, or distance from pole. Didn't get a chance to find marina/fishing area. need better signage, especially for/in overflow area (site #, site size, direction sites face) a bit confusing. Off the beaten path but close to local roads/thruway. Will definitely go back with a group, and also recommend. This is no high end campground but is perfect for the average person/group. - Annette Meyers

Out of the way, but easy to get to. Park was well maintained. Many seasonals, but they were well kept. Main problem was that sites were very un-level. We first went to a 50 amp (they only had a couple) and it had a terrible slope to the back. We couldn't begin to get level. Then we moved to a 30 amp. Those sites were in the middle of a circle of seasonals. Just a small field. Not bad, but again we couldn't get level. Not as bad as the first site, so we just made do. - DYK 640

I was a bit hesitant to stay, since the reviews are mixed, but we took a chance seeing as how even the most recent review was 3 yrs. old. We were pleasantly surprised, overall. Unlike so many other places we have been everything is very spread out. The sites were very large, nice & flat, and after about noon were shaded. The pool was in very good condition. And it has a bar! For me this was big draw; being able to go for a swim, and walk into the adjacent building & have a cold beer. On tap. A craft brew IPA no less, and only $3.75. We found all of the seasonal people to be friendly as well. WiFi stunk but we have yet to find a park with even adequate WiFi. Overall we just really enjoyed the weekend. - Joe & Penny

We stopped at this park because it was listed in Passport America. It was not the easiest park to get to, but we wanted something that was not directly on the Interstate. When we arrived there, the first thing the woman behind the desk told us was how bad this year had been for them, and how much the recent rains had damaged, or made unusable, some of the sites in the campground. When we told her we were members of Passport America, she informed us that the sites reserved for Passport America members were among those flooded, and she refused to give us the discount! The site assigned to us was next to several sites that were occupied by old trailers that were in such poor shape they looked to be abandoned. In addition, the park roads were dirt and only one lane, making it tricky to back into the site assigned to us. This park did not make us feel welcomed, and we would not recommend it. - seabreezeblk

I've read some of the other reviews, and while I agree with most of what they say, I can't make it seem like this place is a total sewage dump. The bugs were pretty bad on the back side (stayed across from the tent sites). But the place is surrounded by water, so pretty much expected. Lots of "seasonals", so good/bad, you decide. Showers were closed when I was there, but restrooms satisfactory. The sewage hookup did leave a bit to be desired, and you needed more than one person for it (one to run the plug and another to hold the darn PVC pipe in place). Beyond that, it wasn't THAT horrible. I'd stay there again, if for no other reason than location (I go to Liverpool, NY about once a month). - lyagooshka

We shared our water connection with 3 other campers so there was a "Y" connection on top of another connection. The electrical hookup was rusted with duct tape over one receptacle. But the worst part was the sewer hookup. It consisted of 15' of PVC pipe laying on the ground which offered little drainage and a terrible smell. The site was a mud hole. Never staying there again! - cooktr

Rate reflects monthly rate.
The Good...extensive shopping nearby, close to Syracuse, mature trees, nearby lake.
The Bad...Most sites filled with seasonal, many are traffic police. 5 mph speed limit is brutally enforced, even though nobody knows how fast you are actually driving, just "too fast". 2 useless stop signs on property. Don't roll through them. Quiet hours not enforced. Among experiences were drunken cabin people returning in wee hours arguing using f-bomb every other word. Not appropriate for family campground.
The Ugly- our site had a septic tank 10' from our front door and open sewer connection at ground level covered over by a rock 7' from our camper front door. Property flooded 3 times in the 5 weeks we were there. Septic tank became inoperative. Anyone using dump station 50' from our front door would force sewage water out of septic tank on our property onto the ground. Puddle was about 10' in diameter. Open sewer pipe was filled with solid waste. Owners pumped tank twice while we were there, but situation was not resolved. We left the next morning after discovering this. - dthurk

Attractive, well maintained park with 30 FHU rv sites with 50 amp service, 4 water/electric sites with 50 amp service, 62 water/electric sites with 30 amp service and 49 primitive sites without hookups, in two camping loops. There are also 7 cabins that can be rented. We stayed in the Pinewoods loop, which is newer and where the FHU sites are located (and the best loop for big rigs). There are several pull through sites which are very long. Decent separation between sites however, most sites have a noticeable front to back slope so bring levelers. Our site (24) was a back in site which was not level but just within capability of the jacks. It was a bit on the short side (had to park the tow vehicle sideways on the pad), but had a very spacious sitting area since it was a corner site. The handicap accessible sites were paved asphalt, and the remainder were comprised of dirt and fine gravel (the kind that gets tracked into your rig) over an asphalt base. Unlike previous reviewers, we did not see any sites that were concrete. Interior roads were paved and in great condition. Bathrooms in our loop were pristine, with 4 private bathroom/shower rooms and 2 toilet rooms per gender. No laundry facilities on site. Park has a very small camp store with a handful of items such as gifts, snacks, sodas and supplies. The park has two small glacial lakes that are a beautiful shade of turquoise. Activities in this park include an 18-hole golf course, several playgrounds, nature center, swimming beach, kayak rentals, concession stand, large day use area, disc golf and upscale (i.e. pricey) restaurant with lovely views. There are many hiking/biking trails throughout the park as well. Large, easily accessible dump station that can accommodate four rigs at once. Utilities worked well and Verizon service was fair. No cable, but we were able to get 30+ OTA channels (although signal was hit or miss). We enjoyed this park and would return. - RVIN 24-7

This park is 1,756 acres, and you want to stay in the Pinewoods campgrounds. We were in site # P14. It was a large pull thru. There are more rustic forest type sites if you want those, but in Pinewoods, all the streets are paved and so are the sites, with lots of grass between them. The walk around the lakes is great. This place would be a 9.5 if they had wifi. They also don't have laundry facilities here. Plus many of the paved sites are really sloped, so bring extra blocks to get level. - Vipermanden

Beautiful State Park with two very deep glacier created lakes. Nice shaded walking path around both lakes with a very popular swimming beach on the shallow end of the larger Green Lake. Campground has excellent paved roads and new modern bath houses with individual rooms enclosing an infant changing table, a toilet and a shower. Area is heavily wooded except for a new section in the Pinewoods loop that has pull through full hookup sites. This is our new go to campground when visiting family and friends in the Syracuse area. - Appleknocker

NY Site 55 Sunday June 5, 2016 Cost: $28.75 This park has about 10 sites with electricity and 60 sites all located in the woods. Our site was huge with a picnic table and fire pit and an easy walk to the bath house. There are hiking trails along the gorge viewing five waterfalls and geological formations. Fishing is allowed and in the winter snowmobiling and cross country skiing. Other activities are baseball, basketball, bird watching, picnic tables, playground and recreation programs. There is a spring fed old fashion swimming hole during the summer. The bath houses are clean and it is a quiet campground during the week. The hiking trail to the main waterfall is a easy half mile walk. Very easy and definitely worth it. One can continue on the two rim trails or the gorge trail which goes across the river a number of times. I would make reservations for the weekends and in the summer. We would return to this campground! North on route 38A to 20 west in Seneca Falls is the National Women's Rights Historic Museum which is free but worth a stop! Very well done! - gsnakehill

We used this park to bike around Owasco Lake. There are 10 electric only sites. Site 54 had 50 amps, the other 9 have 30 amp. Site 51 is satellite friendly, a few more may be. Sites are asphalt and level, with a lot of grassy space between sites, all with picnic tables and a fire ring. The nonelectric sites are all grass. It is well kept, a very nice state park. There are very nice hiking trails and a natural swimming pond in the summer. Great for dogs! Did not use the bath house but it is tiled and looks nice. No wifi, but good Verizon 3G service and acceptable ATT service. There is a seviceable market in Moravia one mile away for essentials. Very quiet this time of year and we would come back. Price reflects non NY resident. - harrisgowing

We stayed here in a cabin as a base for some winery tours. The park itself is beautiful with miles of hiking trails along the creek. In the summer they dam a section and have a swimming area. The bathrooms by the cabins are a little older but were kept clean (with the exception of some bugs in the showers). There is a new shower house/bathroom in the camping area which is very nice but the water did not get as hot as it did in the older shower house. The cabin was decent with an apartment sized fridge/freezer and also a stove/oven. The cabins only have twin beds (one bunk bed and 2 separate beds). We ended up pushing the 2 beds together (not easy as they are kind of heavy). I will warn that the mattresses are HARD. We were lucky enough to have water right next to our cabin. We also brought an electric heater with us as the cabins have no heat and no fans. It was also nice that we were able to have our dogs in the cabin with us. We would definitely rent a cabin here again. - chemgoddess1

The staff that work there are very disrespectful. They run the campground as if they own it. Do it there way or they will call the ranger on you. Even tell you how to back up a trailer and where to park your vehicle. They walk up on your site without even announcing their presence scaring you. You'd think they own the place. They need some training on how to treat people and be respectful to people.
The park itself has gorgeous views for tenters. RVs and trailers do not have access to any water sites. The bathrooms have a code to gain access. There is only 1 bathroom for the entire campground which seemed sufficient. The showers are quite a distance away located in the day use area of the park. Check what events are going on at the park and boat launch as they tend to start early (6am for fishing tournaments) and it can be quite loud. Also there is a car raceway nearby and you frequently hear the racing noises til almost 11 pm. - jap724

Campground was nice, but muddy from the rain. But the campground hosts were totally "over the top" control freaks. With selective, uneven enforcement. One wheel on the grass, and they would harass you. Made the stay very uncomfortable. - edandck

This county park campground is less than a mile from exit 31 on I-81 and is convenient for us to visit friends and relatives in the Syracuse area. The park is located on the southwest shore of Oneida Lake and has an excellent boat ramp, children's playground, ball field, archery range, beach volley ball court and a swimming beach that rents kayaks and paddle boats. The park hosts several fishing tournaments and triathlons including the annual "Iron Girl."
The campground has 30 sites in the woods with no hookups and is occupied mainly by tenters. The 24 sites with water and electric are out in the open on a gravel circle with no privacy or shade. There is a restroom in the camping area but the showers are located about 300 yards away at the swimming area. The showers were clean with lots of hot water while we were here. We would stay again because of the convenient location. - Appleknocker

We did not stay because they did not honor our reservation. We booked 3 month in advance for a full hook up site and when we arrived they had given it to someone else. They said we had to take a no sewer site. They did not call before to tell us about the change, or apologize. We were very disappointed at this place! - Scampb

Oak Orchard is a beautiful campground! We love it. My children run and play all day long. Whether it be swimming in the pool, playing on the playground, kayaking or fishing. They have organized activities on weekends. BBQs, themed weekends, crafts, fishing derbies. Hayrides every weekend..even a Hunt for Bigfoot Hayride which is a hit with my kids! Grassy sites, pretty big too. Perfect night under the stars sitting at your campfire. Clean shower building and bathrooms. Friendly owners on site. Friendly campers all around. Perfect place and we will be back! We can't wait to make more family memories. - Camping Mama 81

We paid extra for 50 amp service then got billed another $3 a night for A/C. $39 a night was overpriced especially for not getting full hookups. The sites were roomy enough and electric and water hookups worked fine (no sewer hookup). The park ran a hay ride for the kids and had a chicken BBQ one night. It was not easy on, easy off from the interstate. Several low hanging branches needed trimming and potholes on the long drive in needed filling. The dumpster was quite a walk to get to. - Melodycthomas

A bare bones campground. The electric side has only 30 or so sites, some without water, and many taken up by tent campers. Campground roads are tight and sites are small. If you have a rig much bigger than 30' you'll have trouble stuffing yourself in here. The East/electric side backs up to a busy county road - lots of traffic noise. The big plus is the direct lake access, just a short walk from the East loop. Nice swimming beach at the lake with a lifeguard and big bath house. We used Cayuga Lake State Park as an overnight stop, and there are probably better choices in the area. - Flying Mantis

Was a nice quiet campground, large site, but was listed as partial shade and it should have been listed as full sun as it was very hot. It was not an electric site, so air conditioning was on only during the hours I could use the generator (9 to 11 am & 5 to 9 pm). The campgrounds were clean with pretty large sites. There was some nice biking we could do in the area. Our site was large, nice and level, and easy to back into. - Garand1

Sites are level, accessible and each contains picnic table and fire pit, shared water. Our one complaint about this park is that they still have not addressed their power problem. Voltage at the sites runs 131 and spikes to 133 & 134. Our Surge Supressor was constantly tripping. Park people when informed, acknowledged the problem, however said the only people reporting problems are ones with newer rv's(ones with sophisticated Power Mgmt Systems). We came up with some workarounds- shutting off power at night, running air conditioner during the day.The power issue was a real problem and based on that we would probably not return here. - vt3fan
