“Basic no-frills campgournd”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

The staff was nice and the disc golf course is top notch, otherwise this is a blah campground. The pool was OK, they said it was heated, but the lake was warmer. Bathrooms and showers were relatively clean. They have limited full-hookup sites. Most all the sites are along a heavy tree line, so they have plenty of shade, but also don't dry out after a rain. If you get in the "horseshoe" area near the showers, there is nowhere to park unless you have a pop-up or are OK with being 3 feet from your fire ring. The game room is a joke. Basically a ping pong table and two arcade games. They really have no kids activities to speak of. I guess this is "wine country" since wineries are heavily prevalent in the area, so maybe the target campers aren't families. If you do have kids, I would recommend going to Cayuga Lake State Park. It's only $7/car to get in and they have brought in sand to make a little beach and swimming area along the lake. My understanding is that most/all of the other area lake parks do not have sand beaches. This campground is not anywhere near civilization, so pack accordingly. The closest fast food, Walmart, etc. is 30 minutes away, with the exception of the town of Ovid. Ovid has the smallest McDonald's I've ever seen outside of an airport or mall and there is a grocery store "Big-M", but it's cleanliness seems more like a large gas station convenience store.

Alright well this is my first almost camping experience so maybe I'm not the very best person to write a review of this place but I will tell you about my experience as subjective as I can. For a person with a camper, this place is good. Our friends brought a camper and they supplied the hookups and for an extra $10 you can get a premium view which oversees the large pond which is quite nice. You can park you truck directly in front or to the side of you camper or cabin. The paths are dirt and gravel and the land is very green. They have frisbee golf (the nets you toss the frisbee to). The arcade room is pretty crappy. It's like a shed with a ping pong table. They have an underground pool which is set kind of in the middle of the land so it's awkward but I suppose it's better than nothing. It wasn't too big. The campground has a 1 floor building for toilets and showers in case you don't have one in your cabin. To the left there are woman and men bathrooms with toilets and sinks like mall bathrooms and to the right there are separate outside doors to enter the individual shower stall. About 6 shower stalls each with a private outdoor entry and each with a area with a bench to put your belongings and hang a towel. Definitely wear flip flops and bring a towel and toiletries. The showers are reasonably clean with a few dead bugs in the holes in the mat but oh well, this isn't the four seasons. What is a little weird is that about 8 feet high over the showers the wall ends and you can hear your neighbor shower perfectly. There was a couple having a full conversation, one in the toilet area and another in the shower area and everyone heard. Weird. Anyhow the place was pretty decent, I suppose it depends on your standards. There was a $3 fee per visitor and I hear that the rented campers have AC available for $10 per night. There was a $3 per day frisbee fee. Oh about the facilities available for rent, we got a "cabin" which was more like a shed with a bed inside. It said built by Amish. There was plywood and wood on the walls and no dry wall or insulation. Our "cabin" had a sink, toilet, fridge, microwave, coffee maker, and fan. The "mattress" on our bed was 3-4 inches thick, ouch. There were 2 bunk bed sets plus a full size bed in our "cabin". Eh we managed to survive by spending the days at the wineries. Warning around 80 degrees the "cabin" feels like 90 (like a shed because that's what it is) because it has a tin roof and no insulation. Good thing we left for the day. I made some friends and they showed me the camper they rented from Sned-Acres. It was much more comfortable than my "cabin" It had a proper kitchen and kitchen table and sofa and shower. Only thing was that it smelled really funny. Now I don't know if it was the family or just that camper or all the campers but they had pets so I'm thinking if you don't want smells get the non pet friendly camper and also pack some odor absorbing gels and lysol and maybe that'll help. Anyhow, no shed for me next time. Hope this was helpful to you.

We camped here in September for 4 nights to explore the Finger Lakes area. We chose site # 58 which gave us a view of the pond and plenty of privacy at this time of year. The owners were very friendly and helpful when we encountered a problem with our trailer and did all they could to help us resolve the issue quickly! We would definitely stay here again. The location gives you great access to the wine trail, and there is plenty of country biking on quiet roads surrounding the venue. Enjoy!
