This is a beautiful campground, the grounds and facilities are clean. The personnel are friendly and helpful. They offer golf carts for $40.00 daily, pick up after 3:00 pm and have to be returned at $11:00 am. The cost for a holiday is $55.00, we found those charges are a bit expensive. The first day we visited the pool, I was kicked in the stomach, kids jumping in everywhere, hitting us, we had 2 small grand kids and the bigger kids were not being watched by a parent, we couldn't let our little ones swim. Next day, pretty much the same thing, lots of kids and no parents watching them. Last day there, tried to take the kids swimming, the pool is full of kids, many with floats and inner tubes and no room for swimming. There wasn't supposed to be food or drink near the pool area and many adults were sitting there drinking beer, loud music and still no personnel addressing it. Kids were up as late as 11:00 running rampant at the bathroom area, no parents around and not once did we see security. The pool is far too small for the campground capacity and they are far too lax on the standards around the pool. We cut our stay short, while it's a nice campground, we just didn't enjoy our stay there and have no intentions of returning or recommending. A lot of price for a less enjoyable experience. - R Randall

This was our first trip to Pine Cradle Lake and it was a last minute getaway. The rate was a little more than we like to spend for camping but it was over Labor Day weekend and after calling several other campgrounds, they had the only opening, so we took it and are we glad we did! The campground was very relaxing and was very well kept. When we first checked in, they sent a nice young man to help take us to our site. Not only did he help us find our site, he helped us back in and even went and got us firewood while we set up, since the general store was closing. They had a nice pool/splash pad but we didn't use it since it was rather breezy. They had plenty of activities planned over the time we were there which was nice. Our site was a premium site which included a newly built deck and fishing dock. There was plenty of room for our dog to run (on a tie out, of course). Overall the park was inviting, relaxing and the staff was super! They even gave us a bag of doggie treats when we checked in with our dog. They do say that Cell phone reception is spotty, as is WIFI and they're honest about. Our cellphones became basically electronic paper weights and to be honest, it was great! We loved not having the electronic leashes. Lake/Pond is catch and release, which was cool. Overall had a wonderful time and we've already made plans to return! Highly recommend for anyone wanting to get away and relax! - Bebe and Pat

We liked the campground so much last year that we made another trip again this year (Labor Day weekend). Stayed there with my wife, girls (now 8 and 13), dog, and two cats.
So if you read my last review of this campground it provides the highlights. Beautiful location, gravel roads, sites on the 'other' side of the lake are spacious, a number of activities available, friendly staff, very clean restrooms - which are individual showers (one person in the room) which I like... The list goes on.
They made some improvements since last year that were noticeable. New ball field, volleyball court, cemented the floor of the covered pavilion, got rid of the items 'hidden' in the woods. I had mentioned power fluctuations - but I was reading between 112 and 116 volts this year at all times. Had a great time there - no complaints at all.
It would be nice to have some different activity types (maybe some arts/crafts for the kids), would love some walking trails (they may do that in the future on neighboring property), wifi, better shuffleboard course. Again - minor items. They are continuing to enhance the property yearly. I will say that some of the seasonal campers are pretty close together and older - but that is not the part we stay in.
Not sure how much is in the immediate area to do, but I suspect there are some things within a reasonable drive. We stay on site for the weekend. Bingo, washerboard, kickball, volleyball, yard sale...lots of things to keep you busy....or not. A great place to kick back and just enjoy the time there.
Would recommend - going there again next year. Site 323 is great (as last year), as well as site 220 (which was already reserved...). - T.Butter

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

We spent 4 days in pull-thru site #52 that was FHU in full sun. The neighbors were close on the sewer/elec. side with more room on the opposite side with the firepit / picnic table. We then spent a week on FHU site #38 that was huge with some nice shade and lots of grass for the schnauzer to roll in. This is a great park, but it is "first come first served"with no reservations. We've always gotten a campsite, just not always the most desired when arriving on a weekend. - Appleknocker

The daily rate is $30 for a 50 amp, FHU site. The monthly rate is $720 for 28 days ($25.71/day). All sites on the upper level are paved. The pavement is too short and narrow for most Class A motorhomes, but it works. We had good Verizon cell/internet reception and good DishTV satellite reception. Hickories Park is owned by the Town of Owego and is very well maintained. We would stay here again. - Dave51

This is one of the most beautiful parks we have stayed in, but also the one with the MOST TRAINS, Day and night. The park is owned by the town of Owego and is huge and very well maintained. There is something for everyone here...pavilions, boat ramp, soccer fields, playground, the best dog parks I have ever seen (I don't have a dog) but it was so nice that I had to see it for myself. I called Saturday morning to see if there would be any sites for that night, and, fortunately, a man answered saying he was on his way out for the weekend, but there was one spot left at site 1. He told us what to do for a self check-in. The site had 30 amp, water and sewer and two large trees that we cautiously maneuvered between so our 13'6" high fifth wheel wouldn't damage the roof, etc. The site was paved and nice and shady. The water pressure is very good. No wifi or cable, but Verizon worked well and we got about 6 channels with the antenna. NOW, my only other complaint is there was only one dumpster in the whole HUGE park, and it is nowhere near your way out of the park. You have to go to a dead end road past the dog parks and I would not recommend doing that with your RV attached. No good place to turn it around. We rode our cart around the park looking for the dumpster and could not figure out why it was there. However, since this park has lots of day users, there are signs everywhere saying to carry your trash out. I imagine a dumpster would fill up every day if it was located where it should be. - Ginny H
