Alerts and Important Information
All Cabins and some cottages are now open YEAR ROUND

Each year the campground makes every effort to provide safe swimming opportunities by testing the water and by keeping the swimming areas staffed with lifeguards. Please be aware that if the safety of our swimmers is compromised, due to lack of lifeguard coverage or water quality issues, swimming will be prohibited and therefore cannot be a guaranteed activity. We apologize for this inconvenience as it may occur with little advance notice.

To insure fairness for all NY customers, any reservation with departure dates outside the 9-month Maximum Window can not be changed or cancelled until 18 days after the reservation was made.

Park office hours from Labor Day until mid June are 8am - 4pm, Mon - Fri. Please call the park for night time and weekend procedure. 315-482-2722.
