Fantastic camping, great sites that back up to trails that connect to the gorge. This park is one of our favorites. There are four caping areas, all nicely wooded lots although the larger loop with the playgroup has a open field in the middle so the sites that butt up to the play area are fairly open. Bath houses are spotless and lots of trails. Really beautiful areas to hike and picnic. There is also a great pool and play area near the entrance to the park office, very clean and huge. Take some time to venture into the town as well, great sporting goods store and there are lots of places to eat, etc. The Marina is great too and break wall houses fisherman and adventurers alike. Not to mention your are in the finger lakes region and there are wineries all along the lake. And although I am a bit of a wine snob and not a huge fan of east coast wines, they really have an abundance to offer and the food and experience are fantastic - even kid friendly too, although it would be an amazing couples venue too. This is a region to take some time. It you are roaming be sure to check out Buttermilk falls and other surrounding parks.
