We provide you with beautiful lakeside camping surrounded by acres of wilderness! A perfect stop-off point between New York City and Niagara Falls. A great camping base for day visits to Cooperstown’s Baseball Hall of Fame; Corning Glass Center to see Stueben Crystal being made: Binghamton and its 6 turn-of -the -century carousels (free rides); Scranton with its Lackawana Coal Mine tours and the live railroading exhibition at Steamtown USA.
Lakeside is centrally located as a meeting place for distant friends, family and groups to get together. Our 84 foot pavilion, with its own kitchen, is a great place for a day picnic, family reunion, reception, or birthday party.
Although most people think of New York as a state full of skyscrapers and subways, in the heart of the state is the bustling, charming city of Binghamton, the gateway to upstate New York. Nearby, in the middle of this natural beauty, you’ll find the perfect place to enjoy it all at Lakeside Campground.
You can tent camp in wooded sites along the lake or deep in the woods. With 20/30/50 amp service and large pull-thru sites, the largest of camping units will feel at home on or off the lake. We have the highest ratings in the area from Trailer Life and Woodals and are the only campground approved by AAA.
We also rent cabins and trailers. The cabins, which sleep four people, are set in the woods and come with electric. Water is outside along with a picnic table and fire ring. The trailers, which sleep from four to six people, have kitchens and bathrooms. And now we have added two new cabins which have kitchens and bathrooms.
A variety of activities await you at Lakeside. Swim in our own four acre lake or rent a peddle boat, canoe or rowboat for a tour of the lake. For the kids and young adults rent time on the Iceberg, an 8 foot climbing wall in the lake. Bass, bluegill, pickerel and bullhead will taunt the fisherman in you. Up the tempo a bit and you can play tennis or basketball on our sports court. Horseshoes, volleyball and badminton also await you. Into hiking or biking? Two miles away is Hawkins pond, a county nature preserve, which has 3 levels of hiking trails. The back roads around the campground will let you cycle through some beautiful rolling hills and farmland.
For children, from little tykes to teens, there are a number of activities to keep them entertained. The swimming area is sanded and slopes gently so that little children can play or swim in comfort or play with the Little Tykes toys which boarder the beach. The older ones can sharpen their skills at the pool table, practice their hoop and net skills on the sports court or play a little softball on the sports field. And then we have a mini-train with free rides around the lake for the little ones.
