  • A large park with so much to see and do. I love to hike...by the water, though gorges, in woods, on paved trails, with my dog. It had it all. Lots of great camping sites, great cabins, a museum and military cemetery. Good place to bring a bike to, lots of area to cycle in and broad shoulders on 96A. Definitely a park to enjoy.
  • We stayed here for a weekend at one of the campsites and had a nice time! We had a great view of the lake, which was nice, and although the hookup was a bit away from our site, it all worked out with the help of an extension cord, The washroom and shower facilities were nice, and we enjoyed all the roads and trails meandering around the park, and parts of the old base. Roads were indeed a little rough in places as people have mentioned, but we're not racing down these access roads, anyway, so it was easy to just drive carefully in places. We went in September and it was a little cool, but we'll be back to check it out during the nice weather, too.
  • Wonderful camping experience here, with large sites not too close together. Electric at the campsites, and a dump station with portable water available to fill your water tank
  • Definitely has nice views of Seneca Lake. Very nice pavilions are available to rent out for large gatherings say for a company picnic or family reunion. They have good spaces for camping purposes as well.
  • Lots of beautiful beaches and shoreline. Many camping sites as well as cabins. Boat docks are great. Got in and out with ease. Much to see! Great place! War museum on site!
