Iíll plan to post a link to the photos in this thread soon after our return. Weíre going in May so look for the link by the beginning of June.

Also, for those folks looking to visit TSP, there are only 11 electric sites and all but 3 had already been reserved by the end of December for our May timeframe! Kinda like booking the Keys or Yellowstone.

Hey JP,

I have at least 50' of water hose and about 50' of 30A cable. will that be enough to stretch from Site #1 downhill to the electrical box and the water spigot? I don't plan on keeping the hose connected, however.

TIA

You no longer drive through the steam the dam just below the drive area washed out a few years back and was receding up river river getting closer to the road area, bottom line is they built a bridge, I'm with you it was always fun to drive through the water.

Have any of you spent time there? If so, we'd love to know more about your experiences in the park. We were able to snag Site #1 (electric site) and it looks like the Roo and the TV will be able to fit there.

Thanks in advance for your replies!
I have been going to this park since I was 5 years old, I'm now 58. As stated in many of the other replies there is a lot to do. In town there is pretty much anyplace you will need to get groceries and supplies.

In regards to your site you will not have any problem getting your Roo in and set up, you are on the elevated side so when you look like you are driving up a road to nowhere you are going in the right direction, your site will be the first one on the right. In regards to the water, be a friendly camper by disconnecting from the spigot, it is the only water supply that services 6 to 8 sites, it is designed as a fill and disconnect system.

As someone said above, don't overlook the Gorge at Watkins Glen. Spectacular hike, and while you're in the area, you can check out the falls at Montour Falls, just a couple of miles south of there. The whole southern end of Seneca Lake is beautiful, and Watkins Glen is a town to be explored. Lots of good restaurants and shopping!

There are at least three spigots along that area, site #1 has one directly below it beside site. #11

Jerlandos is a great place to eat in Watkins Glen. https://jerlandospizza.com/

Another great place to stop.
