My mother and I arrived for a few days of relaxation and truly enjoyed the change of color on the trees. Absolutely breathe taking!

Worth the effort to drive through this park in order to appreciate the preservation of this gorgeous lake from overdevelopment. The views of the lake here are probably nit much changed from the 18th C. We visited on a sleepy Saturday morning at end of September; but I expect it gets crowded in the summer season. Swimming, camping, picnicking. Don't miss the oldest covered bridge in the US on site.

This was our second camping visit. This is a small campground with only 39 sites. All have 30 Amp service. It's hard to pick a site. There are really no bad ones. The grounds are beautifully maintained. Sites have lush lawns with crushed stone pads - no mud here. Bath house - 1 for all 39 sites is clean and comfortable. The lake, hiking trails and the Hyde Hall mansion make this State Park a real winner.

This little park is gorgeous in upstate NY. Minutes from the heart of Cooperstown, I imagine this would be a great place to camp. However, I was just visiting for the day with friends. We swam in the lake which was nice but dirty -- seagull feathers all over the sand and an over-abundance of sea vegetation all along the bottom. Went up to the mansion but didn't want to pay $15 for a tour. Still a nice day, lots of parking available, not crowded.
