This campground is VERY basic. There is no store, the laundry facility is undersized for the number of sites and if infested with palmetto bugs (cockroaches). There is no pool or any sort of things to do at the campground. We camp 50+ nights a year and this was one of worst experiences. Granted it was late July and it was so hot we were hallucinating. Maybe in the spring or fall, but keep in mind it really is a VERY basic campground with not much to do.
The campground is okay and I had no problems or issues to contend with. The sites are not large nor are they small, about average size. There is no laundry facility, but one is in the works. The bathrooms were pretty nasty with standing water on the floor. There were no urinals in the mens room, but perhaps there is a plan to replace? Access to and from the campground is excellent. There is access for all size rigs, but I will say it is tight due to the number of trees. A spotter is a must. The wireless internet worked great!
I found this park from this website when I was in a critical need of a place to stay. The staff was exceptional in accommodating my need. The campground is very nice an spacious and great for a town owned park. We would most definitely stay there again.
I found this park on this website while traveling north to Buffalo. This park was a pleasant surprise. Very large facility with lots of spaces, open fields, river front campsites and close to the town. They do not take reservations. If you want a site, you have to get there early (maybe days early) and pay for unused days. This was confusing to me as I did not know what the "Site Occupied" sign meant. Would definitely stay there again, only longer
The Park's rates have risen dramatically in the past several years culminating with this year for their self proclaimed glorious water park. They want $110 a night at some peak weekends for a campsite! Anyway, the kicker is that THE WATER PARK IS NOT FINISHED! They have falsely advertised that the water park would be open by Memorial Day and as of June 1st, there was still several weeks, perhaps MONTHS of work to complete. PLEASE warn your friends this park is not ready, don't be disappointed like we and many other families were this past weekend
This is a very well run and kept up state park. The park is heavily treed but right on a canal overlooking a large marsh area. AWESOME water trails with a pristine private beach on the Bay. Nice staff, no crowds and best of all NO GOLF CARTS!
This is a great little park with a beautiful view of the Niagara River. Very close to the attractions, but you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere. The sites are small, but nice. The staff is excellent and treat you like family. We will be back
Well this year was our 4 year in a row for Cherrystone. The site is under new management and it shows. It is no longer a "family" park. Why? There is a $5 per night charge for children over 5 years old! What? The site includes 2 adult and children under 5, over 5 year old are charged the same as an additional adult. There is no free remote parking, they charge you $5 per day if you have a second vehicle EVEN if you leave it near the gate! (We parked it in town and saved the money) The fishing piers have been falling down for some time and they have decided to replace them in the middle of prime season! We have always loved the park, but it was $70/night for a pull through, water view with an 8 and 10 year old.
This is nice state park in a central location. There are plenty of big sites so we had no issues. Pets sites are limited and together to prevent "issues" - VERY nice! There could be more water stations. The park is adding more electric sites. Most of the sites are paved and LEVEL! Beautiful looking pool (HUGE) that was not open being early in the season. Other campers were nice friendly and no issues were noted. We will be back.
First, if it was not for the amenities, I would rate this campground lower. They have indoor pools, outdoor pools and a restaurant. However, the campground 1) has a storage facility in the MIDDLE of the park. 2) Has MANY rental units that look like a mobile home park. 3) Has EXTREMELY small sites in which your slides and or your awnings are subject to get hit by passing traffic. 4) The sites are on top each other. 5) Has seasonals that are not kept up. 6) Requires membership. I think this park could be GREAT, nice location (a bit urban but okay) but the CAMPGROUND portion of the park really stinks!
A very simple campground. Nice location. The campground is on a STEEP hill and may be difficult for very large rigs although with my 35' and truck I had no issue. The bathrooms were okay, but needed some work as well as the showers. Very reasonable rates.
This is a time share park and we sat through the 90 minute presentation to stay at the park. The campground is nice and has a nice family center. Some of the sites are close together especially for a "private" membership campground. The staff was friendly until we said not thanks! VERY expensive membership. This park is okay, not spectacular like the membership price would dictate. The park is easy access from US322 and is big rig friendly. The facility was okay, but on a walk we undercover a set-up in the woods section that had all kinds of exposed wiring and Satanic symbols painted on the backdrop of a stage. Odd. Maybe for Halloween, even so, this is NOT acceptable as in a family campground.
This is a great park and very well run. The "farm" is in the middle of the campground and gives the kids lots of opportunities to interact with different animals. (Many tame rabbits here and in the adjacent Conewago Isle CG) Friendly staff and guests. No "seasonal trash", wild golf carts, etc. The sites are first come first served. The entertainment and activities are great for all. There is ample room between sites to give you a private feel but yet not too secluded. We will DEFINITELY be back!
Wow, what a great little campground. Conveniently located and easy in and out. The staff is friendly and helpful. There are some seasonal but you can hardly tell. No Junk! Best of all no rowdy drunks riding around on golf carts! This is good place to stay for many area attractions.
The sites only have electric, but for 5 years in the same site, I do not mind, the park is worth it. This campground is nice if you stay on the Canadian Provinces where the sites are fairly level and big. Knoebels Park is the BEST amusement park for families. Disney has nothing on this place.
This was our first time and we thought the park was nice. It is well maintained and the staff is VERY helpful and friendly. The pool is nice and the Cabana bar has VERY reasonably priced snacks for the kids. The site in the back are SO much better than the ones by the pool. The sites adjacent to the pool are mostly filled with seasonals and the sites are WAY too close together. The sites in the back are VERY private and comfortable. Be prepared when visiting to walk up hill, no matter where you are going! Good activities, and scheduled fun things for the kids. Not the easiest place to drive in or out since it is mountain top and the roads in all directions are pretty much old goat paths.
This is park with potential, but first they need to remove the seasonals and cut down a significant number of trees. I was scared to death driving my small travel trailer through this place. We would never camp there again.
This campground was difficult to access with a 25 foot trailer. The campground is welcome for seasonal people only. We were treated like Lepers by the staff and the seasonals. The price was very expensive for off season as well.
The park has HUGE potential. Very nice land and lake, but the place is set up for seasonal only. The place wanted $8 to let a visitor in for 15 minutes! During the off season. The place could really be great. The staff was okay, and pleasant.
Well when you first arrive you think that wow, this will be nice. That all changes when you cross the gate. The staff was NOT helpful and treated us like we did not matter. The sites are small and VERY overpriced for what you get. This campground is entired there to service seasonals, not campers. The campground was full of speeding golf carts and drunk drivers. If you like walking up hill, both ways, then this is your campground. There is NO terrain suitable for kids except for the ball field which is a hike to get to. We will NOT be returning.
