Finger lakes region

We have most of our camping summer planned, working on the September get away now...
Thinking about the Finger Lakes region. It's rather large and would like your input to which area and campground would be best.
We like small towns feeling with shops and restaurants, we also like quiet campgrounds, no kids ( except for 3 furry ones). So looking for dog friendly CG.
Any recommendation?
i was told Watkin Glens was really nice

So far....

This will be the first summer we get to camp in our new travel trailer.
We have 5 nights up near North Bay Ontario (Samuel de Champlain Provincial Park)
4 nights in Presqu'ile Provincial Park near Brighton Ontario on the shores of Lake Ontario
5 nights at Lake George RV Parc
14 nights trip through the states to Nova Scotia camping 5 nights in Parrsorro and 5 nights in Brudnell Provincial park in Prince Edward Island. Unsure where we'll stop over for the nights we travel.

Janet and I usually stop a Rogers Campground in Lancaster NH. We find this is a long enough drive for one day. You might want to travel a bit further. The second day find us at Kiwanis Oceanfront Campground in St. Andrews NB. This small village reminds us of Niagara on the Lake. St Andrews have not allowed the large food chains to enter there town. Most of the restaurants are in basements of home that overlook the harbor. The only chain that is in the town is Tim Hortons and the are on the out skirts. When traveling we try to stop every 2 hours for about 15 min to stretch the legs and let the dog have a walk.

Stayed at Watkins Glen State Park campground in Sept. 2011 for a week. Nice park with lots of shade, rather large sites but interior roads are winding and narrow. Larger rigs were having some difficulty backing into sites. The surrounding area was beautiful. Many nice lake drives and numerous wineries. Well worth visiting. Have fun.
