Camp Whitman on Seneca Lake is a residential summer camp operated by the Presbytery of Geneva in partnership with the Presbytery of Genesee Valley.  The camp has been in operation since 1954.  Prior to that the land was a working farm. The property hosts a summer camp each summer, but the cottages and cabins are available for group and family rentals outside of this timeframe.  The property is marked by Seneca Lake on its eastern boundary, Punnett's Pond on its western boundary and streams and ravines on its north and south boundaries.  The property additionally features a swimming pool, hiking trails, a small organic garden and farm animals and optional activities like archery, boating and more for guests at certain points in the season.

Probably Our favorite spot
Awesome camp grounds and accomodations! Cabins have all the fixings and are super clean. If you had to get rained in on a camping trip this would be the best case spot for the scenario--there's even a larger screened in porch with a large table and couch, so you can still lounge "outside", even if you don't happen to have a canopy. This is also a great place to eat without flies bothering you and without having to go inside, or just to escape the mosquitoes. Although in our three visits here we've not had too much of an issue with those, even in this year which has generally been a very bad year for mosquitoes. The staff are super helpful and responsive and very friendly and easy going. The lake shore is about a 5 or 10 minute walk and there's also a small pond just off the main road coming in. All in all this is our favorite camp spot in the area we've found so far.
