  • Nice enough. We stayed in Hilltop. Pretty wide open and a steep road up with a 40' rig. Electric. Water is around but not at each site. Dump station is a good distance away. Not real private. Nice hiking. Old logging roads. Walk the ice pond to twin fawns. Beach was closed due to high Bacteria. Not uncommon in NY. Looked nice though. Parking is a walk away however. Inconvenient to launch your own canoe or kayak. Narrow roads. But in good shape. Many many handsome CCC cabins and structures here for rent. Closest supplies are Oneonta. Or stop in New Hartford if coming from the North.
  • Amazing place, crystal clear water with deep end swimming out to the dock. It is worth the drive to visit this lake! My family loves it!
  • Great place to spend the afternoon with the family, though the parking fills up really quick! Get in early if you want to go.
  • Camped here twice over the summer and both times were pleasant. The campsites are well kept and the cabins have great amenities included.
  • Love this lake we just want recently and there great
