“Another great stay at the KOA”
Reviewed 29 July 2011

We attend the wine festival in the area every year and we have stayed at this KOA each year. The staff are friendly and the cabins are clean. Some of the sites are quite close together but I believe that going camping it is a great way to meet interesting people. The pool and hot tub are a nice perk to staying at this campground. We are a group of adult women so the kid's offerings are not applicable to us but I think that would be a great asset to a family. They have everything that you might need right on site (including wi-fi access but why would you need it if you are going camping).

DH and I stayed here for one night as a travel stop and were pleasantly surprised. I think we had one of the nicer RV sites, and it looked like it had been recently 'remodeled' with a new patio, chair swing and flowers. They allowed us to check in a little ahead of schedule, and the surroundings were quiet and peaceful, at least where we were. Like most other KOAs, if you're looking for proper camping and nature, seek life elsewhere. But if you're an RV family or just prefer more people around, this is probably up your alley. We would stay here again if we had the toyhauler with us.

We rented the one room kabin. Everything was clean. The bathrooms were clean also. The management and younger staff were very nice and helpful. They had alot of activities for the kids. Joshua and Jack were great with our kids! Yes there is not enough trees in some areas but overall it was a good stay and would recommend this campground.

The campground itself is very nice with lots of good activities planned for families but none of the activities are monitored by campground staff. The pool is very nice and so is the jumping pillow but unfortunately all parents are not vigilant in watching their children and that ruins it for other people unless there is someone in authority monitoring the situation.

Room Tip: plan ahead it's a busy place

We've been touring the Seneca Lake Wine Trail for over 10 years. For the first several years we stayed at the KOA Watkins-Glen Corning, but stopped due to how rude this management is. However, we tried it a couple more times, still the same. This was the last time though. There were 5 couples ages 35 to 50. Yet the management treated us as if we were a bunch of teenagers. They drove golf carts around the site, patrolling our specific area, yelling at us literally every evening. Seriously, it was ridiculous. The campground is definitely not for people looking for space or privacy. Our cabins faced a parking lot of RVs 15 feet away. And it's definitely not for anyone who laughs, has fun, enjoys privacy. I was so stressed out every evening that I would tell everyone to keep quiet every 10 minutes because I was nervous they'd be back. And the price for a cabin is $160 per night, two-night minimum, not worth the money. When we returned our key to the front desk, there was some woman screaming at the kids on a monitor...so we definitely would not bring our children here either. My advice, go to a B & B or a lodge and rent it out if you have more than ...well, yourself.

We just spent the weekend at the Watkins Glen/Corning KOA. While yes the tent sites are small the rest of the experience was wonderful! The showers/bathrooms were clean and the water was almost always hot! The staff was very friendly and helpful!
