Just a short drive from the Finger Lakes, it's no wonder camping near Elmira is a popular choice among upstate New Yorkers. Drive about 40 minutes north of Elmira to Watkins Glen State Park, where you can camp, hike, and explore some of the most stunning and popular waterfalls and swimming holes in New York. This place gets busy on hot summer days, but once you see it, you’ll understand why. Other camp-friendly state parks in the area are Robert H. Treman, Newtown Battlefield, Buttermilk Falls, Sampson, and Taughannock Falls. You can also choose from private campgrounds like Gardner Hill or private lodgings that include rustic cabins and working farms. Round out your time in the wilderness by sampling some local wines, produced right in the fertile soil around the Finger Lakes region. If you’re feeling active, grab your bike and head to one of the area's many wine and beer trails for some sipping and cycling. Those needing an extra adrenaline rush should head to Harris Hill Soaring Center to try gliding above the Finger Lakes and surrounding area.
