I recently stayed the weekend after Labor day in cabin #13. It was very quiet and not many at the park this time of year but the weather was still very nice and warm. This cabin has been updated and I thought was in very good condition. Nice wide plank wood floors, open beam ceilings and beautiful wood adirondack chairs.... More

We stayed at Gilbert Lake State Park for its proximity to Cooperstown. The electric camp sites offer little or no privacy - people walk right through your site to get to the bathroom or wherever they are going. The campground itself is very difficult to find and we got lost both finding the camp and leaving for home. Cell service... More

This was our second time camping at this state park for 4th of July weekend. We travel 2 1/2 hours for a 3 night stay because it is fabulous! Camping/Hiking/Swimming all in one park! Once we get there, we never leave the park. In 2013 we stayed in what is now site 72. It was a very large site for... More

*The so-called third bedroom is actually what looked like a hospital bed in the main living area. *The bathroom is a toilet in a stall on the screen porch (we had to drive to the showers and sometimes wait since there were just a few showers and a whole lot of campers and cabin residents). *We awoke every morning to...

We rented cabin 11 for a 2 night stay with 2 young boys. When we checked in, the lady was very rude which set the stage... Cabin 11 was (to be nice) absolutely disgusting! It was covered in mold and moss and set on what looked to be very unsturdy cement slabs. Inside was worse: the kitchen was filled with... More

The check in went somewhat smoothly (Desk person forgot to give me the cabin key) and with park map in hand found our cabin.The cabin consisted of a... More

Gilbert Lake State Park is a very picturesque park near Oneonta. I was pleasantly surprised to see that the grounds were very clean. Cabins were nice. Some have been newly renovated. They only have cold running water and a toilet in the cabin but there are shower facilities that have hot running water. They are also kept pretty clean. The... More

We camped here at site 52 in a fifth wheel from 7/25-7/29. The sites don't have a lot of privacy but this was an end spot so there was more privacy than most spots. The open grassy area across the road was great for the kids to play and the road was well-maintained so it was great for bikes and... More

My fiance and I camped here for July 4th weekend (4 days). It was our first time camping by ourselves since usually we bring friends along. We didn't have high hopes because the reviews were iffy and we booked online three days prior when EVERY other campground was full. We were SO pleasantly surprised! The grounds are beautiful -- everything... More
