New York vacation sites & campgrounds

We are heading to Niagara Falls and then over to NYC for summer vacation. Any suggestions where to camp and what to see in-between?
Thanks,
Matt

Depends on when you're passing through

There are so many things here in Upstate NY. Letchworth Park south of Rochester is special with spectacular gorges. Also be sure to catch Watkins Glen at the south end of Seneca Lake. Enjoy the wine trail around Seneca Lake. In Watkins Glen you can camp at the KOA there. Nice park. If you like steam railroads then check out the Arcade & Attica. That can be a fun diversion. Jellystone near there is nice, but reservations are almost always required. While at Niagara you might want to check out Ft. Niagara. Pretty neat old fort dating back to the French and Indian wars in the mid to late 1700's. In Trumansburg there is Taugahaunic Park (spelling?) which is another nice park with a spectacular water falls. Dine at Hazelnut Kitchen if you have time. If you are in to architecture then check out the architectural tours in Buffalo. Also the Albright Knox Art Gallery is one of the top galleries in the US. These are just a few ideas from someone who lives here.

If you need something specific feel free to pm me with your request and I'll answer whatever I can for you. I need the break from the pile of tax returns on my desk. If you are coming to the Falls make sure you bring your passports for you and the kids. If you don't have them you can't go into Canada.

Not sure how close you'll be to this park but we stayed at Lake George RV Park a few years ago. Very nice and Lake George area is beautiful to see and enjoy.

Can't wait to go back.

We've stayed there several times and it is a great park. It's five star rating is deserved!

If you’re around here in July they do the renaissance festival http://www.sterlingfestival.com every weekend in July there is a State campground in Fair haven that is about five minutes away . Also we used to take our kids up to Old Forge they have a nice campground http://www.oldforgecamping.com right next door (you can walk the trails to it or take a shuttle) to a huge water park http://www.watersafari.com .

I assume you'll be taking I90 between Niagara Falls and NYC. That's the route we took last summer and we stayed at Darien Lake Theme Park Resort just East of Buffalo. We left wishing we had stayed more than the one night we did. If you're travelling with kids you won't regret it. They have a full range of campsites available and you can walk from your site in & out of the theme park to your hearts content.
