Watkins Glen State Park is the most famous of the Finger Lakes State Parks, with a reputation for leaving visitors spellbound. Within two miles, the glen's stream descends 400 feet past 200-foot cliffs, generating 19 waterfalls along its course. The gorge path winds over and under waterfalls and through the spray of Cavern Cascade. Rim trails overlook the gorge. Campers and day-visitors can enjoy the Olympic-size pool, scheduled summer tours through the gorge, tent and trailer campsites, picnic facilities and excellent fishing in nearby Seneca Lake or Catherine Creek, which is renowned for its annual spring run of rainbow trout.

Nice Park, however

For all our requirements this was a nice place to camp. We don't need electrical as those sites are almost impossible to reserve. The online map doesn't really represent actual proximity to washrooms, so I would suggest you check out your site if reserving online, if proximity to a washroom is a must. The bathrooms were nice mirrors were great and showers free and hot. There is a very nasty unfriendly old lady that works in the check in,,,,,the rest are very friendly and actually she isn't scheduled on friday night nor saturday's for that reason. ...
