Al’s camp was great! Plenty of firewood and the pit toilet was well-stocked with toilet paper, sanitizer, wipes, and a citronella candle. Not much light pollution so you can see plenty of stars on clear nights. Great hiking close by, including a few trails on the property. As other reviews have stated, there is some road noise from NY 14 nearby but otherwise quiet and very peaceful. Definitely recommend!

Al’s camp is an ‘A’
Al’s camp is always a solid choice. Great location close to Geneva and good amenities. The site is well cared for. Al is always super friendly and helpful.

Excellent spot to pitch a tent. Secluded woods with lots of privacy. Close to NY route so there is some road noise, but it quiets down at night.

A nice secluded space with picnic table, fire pit, drop toilet and dry, split firewood supplied. No houses or other spots nearby. Close to keuka outlet trail and Seneca lake as well as local wineries, spotted duck etc. Only downside is proximity to NY 14 with loud traffic.

I had a great stay here! Very secluded spot with a couple camp sites to choose from, plus some little trails through the woods. Free firewood, well-maintained outhouse, firepit, and picnic bench. The only downside is that cars can be heard easily from the road nearby. It was much quieter at night though. Al was very kind and helpful!

Al’s campsite was absolutely wonderful! It was really easy to find, clearly labeled, and the site was set out great - there were only two of us but there would definitely be enough space if you came with a group of 8 or 10. The trails behind the camp were well maintained and very beautiful, and I highly recommend visiting at the end of June/beginning of July because the woods were flush with black raspberries! We were able to pick a quart’s worth in under 30 minutes. There was plenty of firewood which was very dry, as well as newspapers for kindling, and a fire pit with grills for over top, so making fire was a breeze. The portable toilet was kept very clean, and stocked with toilet paper and a citronella candle. If you’re looking for food nearby, Spotted Duck Creamery is just a mile up the road and had decadent ice cream and a cute little farm attached. This would also be a great place to stay if you’re interested in wine tasting, as it’s right off of the Seneca wine trail, and we drove by at least a dozen wineries and vineyards on our way to and from. 10/10, would definitely want to come back. Make sure to check out the fireflies at night - we saw dozens!!

Campsite with many amenities
Upon arriving at the campground, we were pleasantly surprised with the number of extra amenities in addition to the regular campsite, there was a picnic table, 2 well built benches, plenty of water for hand/dish washing, and a square fire pit suitable for cooking on, grates and wire rack provided. Also, there was plenty of split firewood available for free! There was also an out house available, as outlined in the campsite description, however, we were very pleased to find that it was also readily stocked with plenty of toilet paper, purell, disinfectant wipes and a citronella candle for light; there were also three windows available for additional light during the day and extra ventilation. As well as providing a beautiful camping location, Al also allows you to roam freely throughout his sizable property equipped with beautiful hiking trails, a creek running through the property as well as additional camping locations (much more primitive, without all of the aforementioned accouterments - and with less level ground, yet still beautiful). We thoroughly enjoyed our time at this camping location, The only drawback is that the campsite, with all available amenities, is quite close to the road allowing all of the passing vehicles, including cars, bikes and horse and buggy, to be easily heard. Overall, we would rate this camp site with five stars and would highly recommend. Happy Camping!

Peaceful retreat
Al’s Camp is a nice peaceful spot. It is well maintained and the host is very welcoming in all communications. The road that the camp is on is a great spot for a stroll and lake view. I will be back!

Perfect Getaway!
Our stay at Al’s camp was wonderful!! There was plenty of firewood provided and the site was beautiful! The property was great for hiking too! The only feedback/suggestion I would give is to clearly mark the trails or provide at least a basic map of the property!

Wooded camping
Exactly as described, a private wooded camping spot. We arrived after dark and got bombarded with biting insects. Aside from that, we were able to see stars through the clearing in the tree canopy and hear amazing crickets. The initial site is sloped; we were car camping so needed to park in a way to try to be as level as possible. Tent campers have another option to walk deeper into the woods at a nice grassy clearing. The outhouse is nice. And the road outside the site is a quiet country road (with occasional fast cars driving on it) & lovely to walk on.

Al’s campsite was great! Super private and really close to many things. We did some hiking on the trails near the campsite on the property and then went to a trail about a mile away. We also hit up Climbing Binet brewery for a flight, some live music and a beautiful view of the lake!

Great spot, and easily accessible. We set up tents a in the back area down the trail, instead of the main site that is right off the road (not much traffic or noise overall on a Saturday/Sunday). Close to the lake, and trails nearby. Al was easy to communicate with and accommodating. Thank you!

Our trip to the finger lakes was short and sweet. We brought our dog for her first camping trip and found this place perfect for her maiden voyage into the woods. We had a few mishaps along the way, and Al was very helpful when I reached out to him. The campfire pit was also great for cooking and the site was easily accessible from the road.

Great location in Pen Yan
This place was great! It was 90 acres of secluded land to camp in. Al even had a really clean and nice outhouse. It is in a great location- close to all stores, parks, lakes, and walking distance to the Spotted Duck (amazing custard, best dessert and place ever...)
