Family re-union near Lake Oneida

We are planning a family re-union and would like some inputs from all the members who are familiar with this area. Does anyone have any idea for places to stay on Oneida Lake for at least 20 people during the labour day weekend?

The reason we picked this is because some of us live in Toronto, and some of our relatives, live in New Jersey and we sort of wanted to pick a middle spot.

Any suggestion would be greatfully appreciated!

At the risk of insulting someone out there....IMO there is nothing really decent ON ONEIDA LAKE in terms of hotels/motels. That being said, you may want to check out this website for Sylvan Beach.


Sylvan Beach is rather kitschy and I enjoy going there for an afternoon...typically just to eat. If I were to choose Sylvan Beach for an extended stay, I would be looking at cottages. If you have young kids in the group, they would get a kick out of the amusement park .... but not for an extended stay.

Have you considered the Finger Lakes? There are soooo many more options in the finger lakes and you could easily find a midway point between Toronto and NJ. There are beautiful parks, the wineries, pristine lakes (swimming, boating), great restaurants, many nice (even more upscale) accommodations. I love Ithaca (having lived there) - small university city with great restaurants, parks, nice earth science museum, theater, beautiful lake. etc. etc.
