More Details

Spectacular describes this quiet, rural, wooded camping resort, with ALL of the amenities that help create a memorable vacation.

RESORT LUXURY. AMAZING RECREATION. This is a great family campground that is sure to please everyone.  A minimum three to five day stay is recommended to enjoy the region's bounty, which includes the famous Watkins Glen Gorge with its 19 waterfalls, the Corning Museum of Glass, Seneca Lake sight-seeing and dinner cruises, swimming beneath waterfalls, sampling local vintages at more than 100 area wineries, and major motor racing including the MONSTER ENERGY NASCAR CUP.

KIDS CAMP FREE in our family sections B-C-D and E, plus the Deluxe Cabins in these sections, and all of our 1 and 2 room camping cabins.

Also we have added an OUTDOOR POOL in Seneca Thrills, located down by the pond.  The opening of the pool was July 4, 2018 and has been enjoyed by all! 

Selected as a past KOA Campground of the Year, and with more than 35 Camping Cabins and Deluxe Cabins, full-featured BIG RIG RV sites, and FREE WIFI, the resort specializes in FUN for family vacations and reunions!  Touring RVers will love luxurious Sunset Acres, the quiet side of the park, where some of the sites have private gazebos.  Adventure-seeking families may prefer to be close to Seneca Thrills, a separate family fun center.

The 30'x50' heated INDOOR pool, spa and fitness center is in a class by itself, and our gigantic pirate ship playground, Jumping Pillow, giant water slide, bumper boats, and Army truck rides will help make your vacation memorable!  Some of these activities are open seasonally.

24 hour gated campground (after hours arrivals need reservation).
