Watkins Glen State Park is small, only 778 acres, but it packs a lot of stunning beauty into its small size. The campground is pleasant and modern with centralized bathhouses in each loop that include shower facilities. There are total of 306 campsites dispersed in six different loops. There are a limited number of sites for oversized rigs up to 30 feet and 20 feet in length dispersed through out the campground and 10 primitive cabins (no water, plumbing, or electricity) dispersed in the Oneida Village loop. The rest of the sites are designated tent sites, although small RVs like truck campers can fit. Reservations are available through Reserve America. If you have a big rig, pay attention to which sites can accommodate big rigs. There are 55 electric sites in the Mohawk Village loop. In general the sites are pleasant with easy walking access to the bathhouses, water, and trash dumpsters. The campground is generally full on weekends during peak camping season. It has two trailer dumps. Due to the proximity of the park to the town of Watkins Glenn, cell phone coverage is available, but it can be weak at times.
