Campground is located in a town park that has a lot of local use i.e. picnickers, school outings, dog walkers, joggers, soccer & baseball games, summer concerts, car shows etc. Paved roads with lots of lawn and some shaded sites. Great location on the Susquehanna river near the touristy village of Owego. We were here for the annual Strawberry Festival the third weekend in June which draws upwards of 30,000 people to this small village for lots of live music, strawberry shortcake, wine tasting,fireworks, many food vendors and a general good time. A note of caution to people considering a long term stay is a monthly rate is for 28 days. We would definitely stay here again.
Roads are paved but sites are gravel at best. Some sites are short. The park is very unique with its two small lakes and many hiking/mountain biking trails. The park has a sandy swimming beach with crystal clear water. Close to Syracuse and gets a lot of day visitors to the beach and trails.
We were here for The Escapees rally and found the facilities very good for us. The sites vary and some were a bit soggy during wet weather. Would stop here again as it is close to town and many RV suppliers.
This is a wonderful campground in a great county park on a group of connected islands at the mouth of Tampa Bay. It is difficult to get reservations but a percentage of sites are kept available for walkups. On a Tuesday morning we were third in line 2 hours before the office opened and had our pick of a couple of "pet" sites. There is seven miles of paved recreational trail suitable for rollerblading, casual cycling, or walking. There is also a great dog park with an adjacent stretch of white sand beach for the canines.
Shady campground except for the transient pull-thru sites which are level and sunny. Pool was closed when we visited in mid-Oct. Roads are mostly paved and the transient sites are grassy with gravel parking area. Campground has mostly long term residents and is open all year. Good spot to stop over night as it is near the Interstate.
Friendly park in a quiet area conveniently close to town. Lake is not swim-able but has excellent fishing and boating. Entrance road is paved and campground roads are gravel. Grassy, treed, large, easy access sites with smaller sites on the waterfront. Several docks for fishing and boating with a large concrete boat ramp next to a large parking lot with plenty of room for boat trailers. Has a wooded path leading to State Route 3 for walking/biking access to a mini-golf course, the YMCA and several restaurants.
Campground website lists a rate of $40/night for 2 adults & 2 children. After a long day we arrived at Fantasy Island Campground and were charged $80/night for 4 adults. To add insult to this overcharge we discovered the showers were 50 cents for 8 minutes. Two of the 3 showers were operable, one didn't work at all. Of the two that worked the one nearest the water heater got all the hot water while the other was ice cold until the first shower user was done and shut off his hot water. The sinks weren't even plumbed for hot water, only cold. I would never recommend any this park to anyone who was traveling through the area.
