I'm counting on it... if not, she'll tell you how the trip went and how I "accidently" fell in the lake and such...

Several good campgrounds in the area. Chatauqua lakes is a good campground would be proably an hour south or so, has full hook ups partial lake view. Haven't done too many of the southern parks except for Lertchworth. Weather is supposed to be great up until at least Monday.. Not Indian summer yet as we have not had the hard frost.. but whose complaining

Skyline RV will not be far from where you will be picking it up. I have stayed there a few times. Nice place and they have a few full hook up sites.

We've stayed at Darien Lake & heard good things about the North Java Jellystone park but both are likely more elaborate than what you're looking for. On our pickup run last year we arranged with the dealer to stay in the trailer on site over night before heading home the following day.

Darien Lake State Park in open until October 20th. It is about 21 miles East of Buffalo RV. The rate is between $21 and $27 per night. You might want to check it out.

Finally completed all State visits in August 2011 with a trip to North Dakota.

There really aren't any RV parks real close to Buffalo RV. Jellystone is a real nice park with a ton of amenities and it might be a good place to totally check out all the bells and whistles. Most new buyers tend to head up tp the KOA on Grand Island. You do have to go through the city of Buffalo, but that really isn't too big a deal as our traffic is pretty mild. The other hassle is that you have to cross over a toll bridge to get to Grand Island.

If you do opt for Evangola State Park, I believe that Buffalo RV has a dump station or Camping World in Hamburg definitely has one.

Enjoy your new baby and have fun in Western NY.

Evangola is reasonable, just basically an open field. There is also Lake Erie State Park (not sure if it is open that late). Also there is a KOA right off the I-90, Westfield KOA.
