GENERAL COMMENTS:
The elevation is 1,720 feet.

The campground is a single loop winding its way through a healthy
stand of mature mixed hardwoods.  Adjacent to a large patch of
wild blueberries, the campground is popular from blueberry
picking season through wonderful display of Fall colors. 
Convenient to a network of Forest trails, many of the area's
attractions, and the famous Finger Lakes wine country, this
rustic campground is a nice destination.
