Camping and Outdoor Adventures: A Match Made in the Finger Lakes

It seems fitting that both camping and the great outdoors are nationally celebrated during the month of June. Spend your days exploring scenic biking trails, woodsy hiking trails, and fishing on Keuka Lake. End your nights around a crackling campfire with a star covered sky overhead.

Hickory Hill Campground is a vacation destination perfect for families. Bring your own camper or tent, or stay in one of their cozy rental units. Kids will enjoy their sprayground, laser tag, pedal carts and more. The whole family can enjoy the pools and daily activities.

Just a few miles down the road from the campground is beautiful Keuka Lake. During the Summer months you'll find families out on boating, and friends kayaking and canoeing. Book a fishing charter  with an experienced guide and set out on an exploration for a wide variety of fish like Brown Trout, Smallmouth Bass and Landlocked Salmon.

Camp near Corning at Ferenbaugh Campground. Their wooded and Creekside sites will get you more in touch with nature. Relax at the pool then challenge your family to a game of mini-golf or volleyball. End the night with a campfire and s'mores.

While you are in Corning visit Ranger Outfitters for all your outdoor gear needs for a hiking adventure. If you are a less experienced adventurer or want a guided tour, no fear, they do that too! Book a hike with an experienced guide on the Finger Lakes Trail and discover beautiful waterfalls and breathtaking scenery.

Campbell Campground offers fun for everyone. Weekend activities, hiking trails, horseshoes, and swimming give campers a fun filled camping experience.

Take a cycling tour on the Savona-Cooper Plains loop  conveniently located near Campbell Campground. The moderate 22- mile trail will lead you along charming country roads and through small villages. Along the way stop at antique shops for a break.

For a back-to-basics, rustic camping experience get a spot at Stony Brook State Park. Wake up in the great outdoors and set out on hikes through deep gorges and past spectacular waterfalls.
