New York Parks with Water Sites

We are planning a three week trip from Buffalo to the Lake George area in our Class A next July. We would like to stay at parks that have sites on the water. We want to stay 3 to 5 nights per park. We were planning on traveling I-90 there and perhaps thru the Fingerlakes Region on the return. We have previously been thru the Thousand Islands and would like to see the lower part of the state. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Buffalo to Lake George on I-90 is not what I consider the " lower part of the State". I've spent a large part of two summers at Association Island Rv in Henderson Harbor. It's an island on Lake Ontario with of course water sites. It calls itself a thousand island campground but it's an hour drive south. The park has some issues being on island but we enjoyed it. Suggest you check it out in rvparkreviews if you plan to go. Enjoy.

We just spent a couple nights at Golden Hill State Park, last weekend. It's a beautiful, smaller state park with water and electric. Located on the shores of Lake Ontario and has an old lighthouse which can be toured.

Do bring an extra water hose because the connections are a bit farther than my 25 footer would reach. We had a good time there.

X2....We stayed there 2 nights, a couple of years ago, while on our way to Canada. Stayed right on the water! Had an enjoyable visit!

As we are in the Buffalo area, we have been to the parks along lake Ontario. I have a park in Lake George picked out but am looking for others off of I-90 or thru the Finger Lake Region that have sites on the water. Thanks for all of your inputs.

Check out the NY State Parks. I think Sylvan Beach, just north of Syracuse, has water sites. Nice area.

For a differnet camping experience, you could try Turning Stone Casino Campground in Verona, NY. At our site there was a small stream running past the back (probably man-made, but nice). There are shuttles to the casino where there are some nice restaurants. The campground is quiet and very clean with full hook-ups including cable. It is just south of I90. We also stayed at the KOA in Canandaguia (?), NY which is just north of the finger lake of the same name. It is about 5 miles from the lake and town. Our site was on a small pond. It was very pleasant there during our 2 night stay. It is located just south of I90 also.
