This lake has amazing view and cleanest water in any river I have seen. Plan for night out I guess they allow that. Its great place for couple and is quite romantic also. There is a lot of good play area for kids and and place to swim

This review is posted so that hopefully someone within the park administration with the authority to make decisions reads it and finally takes some definitive action to correct the following problem. This is an absolutely wonderful place and I always stay in one of the 7 cabins. Of those, I have stayed in cabin 3 and Cabin 1 multiple times.... More

It was a very spacious campground. Outer loop sites are very spread out. That being said, make sure you have enough power cables. We had to go buy one for us and one for our friends. Inner loop would not be as bad. Water for our site was 180 feet away. Fill up at the dump site first. There is... More

My family and I wanted to camp near Ithica but every site was booked. We drove to Sampson, and despite the lack of tree cover, found the campground to be peaceful and breezy. Also beautiful views all day and amazing sunsets. We chose to camp at the top of the hill. It was great for the kids, who had a... More

Overall the park is nice and the lake is pretty clean except for some seaweed toward shore. **Be very wary of the cabins!! Last summer Cabin 6 was infested with carpenter ants and this year (8/19/16) Cabin 1 has roaches! I will never stay in a cabin again!! The bathrooms are pretty clean except for spiders but it's camping so... More

Nice Place... roads are in rough shape so difficult at times for my kids to ride their bikes. Also the beach is nothing special, mostly little rocks and a lot of sea weed, but it does the trick. The sites are very large, but there is not much privacy. Each loop has a bathhouse and they are very clean. The... More

Next day another's police visit for having a portable hammock rope tied around tree. Third day, sitting at campfire with wife and friend having a... More

Arrived on a Tuesday in late July at this park centrally located in the Finger Lakes. We were surprised to find ourselves on an extra large and private site without neighbours until Friday. Our visit to nearby Watkins Glen and Taughannock parks found these parks were very crowded without close lake access. This state park has a remarkable military history... More

Had a terrible start to our trip. After driving 9 hours to get there had trouble checking in. Staff not very helpful. Park not dog friendly at all. Trail maps hard to follow and not kept up. We did some geocaching and that was fun, some great challenging finds. Grandkids loved that. I would not go back. I would try... More
