Finger Lakes Recommendations

Hi everyone,
We are looking for recommendations on campgrounds around the finger lakes. We have an 8 year old daughter so kids activities are needed. Also love sight seeing, local wineries and brewery's, nice easy hike trails and looking over the water. We are traveling from Long Island with a 2017 Eagle HT 29.5bhds fifth wheel.
Thanks for your help.

We stayed at Red's Twilight on the Erie last summer and really enjoyed it. It is on the Erie Canal.

Sampson State Park – Romulus NY, on Seneca Lake

Historic – it was the former Sampson Naval Training Station and Sampson Air Force Base. There is a military museum there as well. There is also a sandy beach.

Seneca Lake Wine Trail right there. Also some craft breweries.

The “Windmill Farm and Craft Market” in Penn Yan, NY – 45 minute drive.

Watkins Glen State Park - Gorge and Falls, 25 miles at South end of Seneca Lake.

Yes. My daughters are 16 and 6 and they really had a good time. Red's Twilight is extremely kid friendly as a campground. No WiFi however if that matters.

We also took the time to drive up to lake Ontario, viewed some lighthouses, etc. Drove through some apple orchards, etc. My kids enjoy that type of stuff.

JFlightRisk is actually at Red's right now and lives in the area. He will also be a great resource for things to do in the Finger Lakes region. Feel free to send him a PM if he doesn't reply to this thread.

As The Meeker mentioned, the Watkins Glenn area also has a lot for kids if you would end up in that direction. I haven't been there personally, but I believe that there is a water park connected to or near the KOA there.

We stayed at the KOA in the Watkins Glen area. Nice, clean park with plenty for kids to do. It is close to Watkins Glen state park, the Glen (active raceway that you can drive your car on), and the town of Corning. Montour Falls is a nice town to visit also. It has a waterfall right in town.

While your in the finger lakes region be sure to try a Grape Pie and you’ll end up buying a cooler and taking some home ( frozen & some dry ice). When we fly into Syracuse we’ll swing over to Naples,NY and pickup a few to take to the summer house and enjoy. Eating them for over 60 years now. And we bring back plenty of Cortland apples from my tree up on the St. Lawrence River.
