We tent camped here for three nights in the beginning of August. The camp sites are clean and have plenty of room for set up. The Bathrooms however are another story...they were far and few with serious upgrades needed as most of them look like the last time anything was serviced or replaced was the mid 70s. The cleanliness (as... More

I spent a couple nights at this park camping during the wine festival weekend. This was my second stay at this state park and I wasn't disappointed. Great facilities, clean washrooms/showers and safe. I had a great time with friends I had met up with both the Fri and Sat. I would highly recommend both the wine festival and this... More

Never have I seen such disgusting showers in a campground. I have camped for years in many state and provincial parks, and I'm no pansy, but this one really disgusted me. Also, couldn't find a hot or even warm shower the whole week we were there. Apart from this, the pool was great, the sites were good, and the location... More

We stayed at Watkins Glen in mid-June for one night. I'm used to Michigan State Parks and the NY state park system would be wise to send their administrators to Michigan to see how it's done. The campsite itself was fine with the exception of the picnic table which was in an advanced state of decay. What really blew me... More

We recently returned from three nights at Watkins Glen State Park. My husband and I have visited the park several times in the last ten years, to hike the Gorge Trail and swim in the pool. Since we loved both of those attractions, we decided to reserve one of the rustic cabins, located on the Oneida Loop. Overall, we had... More

Went camping here for the weekend. Our site was wonderful there was a stream next to it and a trail that led right to the gorge. The park office let us choose our site out of what was available. This was before peak season so it was not packed site wise. It was clean, employees were nice, the showers were... More

This was our family's first camping trip in New York, and I couldn't have been more pleased! I did my research first, and I am so happy I chose this campground. It is one of two options in the immediate vicinity of Watkins Glen. Out of curiosity, we drove past the other campground while in the area to see what... More

We stayed one night on a tent site, and the rest of our family stayed in one of the rustic cabins. A forewarning, the cabins are pretty rustic, i.e. no electricity. The windows are relatively small. This made sleeping in the cabins during the hot nights pretty difficult since we couldn't get a good cross breeze. However, the size of... More

One of our favorite vacations! The campsite is incredibly clean and beautiful and right outside the park! We will be back. If you have children it is perfect for them. I don't have anything left to say but Tripadvisor says I need two hundred characters so I am just going to keep typing until that happens

It was an easy hike with breathtaking views. We went with two children (ages 12 & 9) and they did not complain about the hike once! So picturesque! Take the map they hand out to avoid going in a big circle like we did. :) You get a little wet as you pass behind the falls. It would be nice... More
