Welcome to Tentrr Camping in the Finger Lakes

Camping in the Finger Lakes is anything but ordinary. Touching two state parks, Letchworth and Watkins Glen, which were named 1st and 3rd best State Parks in America respectively, there is so much to see and do at the Finger Lakes. Located only a short distance from New York City, Toronto and other major cities, the Finger Lakes are a great place to escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and get back to nature. With beautiful scenery, award-winning wineries, and so much to see and do, camping at the Finger Lakes is a must.

The Finger Lakes are a group of eleven long, narrow lakes in New York State, consisting of Otisco Lake, Skaneateles Lake, Owasco Lake, Cayuga Lake, Seneca Lake, Keuka Lake, Canandaigua Lake, Honeoye Lake, Canadice Lake, Hemlock Lake and Conesus Lake. A lot of history can be traced to the Finger Lakes region, particularly the Second Great Awakening and Harriet Tubman’s work with the Underground Railroad.

In the summer, the lakes are open to boating, fishing, kayaking and other watersports. You can bike, hike, horseback ride, and, of course, camping is everywhere in the Finger Lakes.

Renowned as the Grand Canyon of the East, the Genesee River goes over three major waterfalls at Letchworth, including one as high as 600 feet. The whole area is covered in dense and beautiful deciduous forest. There are 66 miles of hiking trails, and in the winter it’s open to snowmobiling, tubing and cross-country skiing. If you’re camping and in the mood for watersports, kayaking the river is fun, but going whitewater rafting is even more adrenaline-pumping.

And if you’re in the mood for more waterfalls, you’ll find that and more at Watkins Glen, which has one famous trail that will take you two miles up 800 stone steps and past 19 different waterfalls. There is tent camping and trailer amenities, plus swimming pools and picnic facilities. Deer hunting, with bows only, is permitted in season with a license.

You’re also in the heart of America’s origins, where you can visit the site of a 1779 battle between the Colonial Army, British regulars, Loyalist rangers, and Native American warriors. Camping is allowed in the park, and there are grills, showers and playgrounds.

Finally, don’t forget to stop in at the famed Finger Lakes wineries. Though you may be camping (or glamping), why not live it up a little and try Heron Hill Winery’s Blue Heron Cafe at Keuka Lake for pizzas and wraps, or Veraisons Restaurant at Glenora Wine Cellars at Seneca Lake for upscale dining. And of course, a visit to the wine country wouldn’t be complete without taking the Chocolate Trail with 30-odd shops.
