This place would be great for a family. It had lots of campsites with for all varieties of campers. There were at least two campgrounds in the park and a nice beach area with a refreshment /campground store. Also had a boat launch facility. Finally there was an Air Force and

Pretty park with a couple nice playgrounds and it's own small marina and beach. Can get a little crowded and the "good sites" are hard to get. Facilities are decent (though most of us have our own). Camp store is, well... meh.

Are pets allowed in the cabins or cottages?
Hi, we are planning on staying at Sampson State Park in a few weeks with our dogs. I was wondering if anyone knew if there was a section on the beach or by the water the dogs are allowed to go in and take a swim? Thank you
Dogs can’t swim in the designated swim roped off area but in the non roped off area they don’t seem to care what happens dogs, floats toys just have to be 50 yards from roped off area.

We are going to rent a pavillion for a family picnic. Forgot to ask if there is a grill with the pavillions. Also, a friend would like to meet us, with his pontoon boat, to take some of us for a ride. Will he be able to dock and board us at the dock?
Hi We are planning a trip with our travel trailer to Sampson State park this summer. Can anyone suggest a wooded/shaded site with electric and water? That is also quiet. Thankyou
Hi we are looking to visit the finger lakes this summer. We were wondering how close is this campground to any of the wineries or towns to visit in the area?
I second the most recent post with Three Brothers Winery! We also enjoy Finger Lakes Cider House quite a bit which is a little toward the other lake but an easy drive none the less. There are more wineries close by than you will be physically capable of driving to.

"We stayed in loop 2 which seemed to be pretty quiet and away from the beach"
"Look for a loop with trees."
"Not a hotel. Campsites and cabins are available for rent. Picnic facilities and a concession stand."
"The camp sites by the water fill up fast so you have to be quick when booking them. We use Reserve America."
"Reserveamerica.com for reservations.....well in advance during the summer."
