Yost Ridge in The Finger Lakes
Beautiful Farm Camping
This is a beautiful site on a quiet road with expansive views and active farm land all around. In addition to the electric and water, the location has 4 bars of cel service and picks up a wide variety of antenna tv signals. When you’ve been of grid for a few days, that can be kinda nice for checking in, etc. The hosts are super friendly and hospitable. If you’re lucky, Steve will be around and he can tell you all about the area. There are winery and brewery options in all directions, a lovely fire pit, and plenty of horses and cows in the distance for ambience. We’ll stop in again the next time through.

The sunrises, sunsets, and stars were phenomenal, as was the attentiveness of Steve, the camp manager, who stopped by several times to see if we needed anything. Dawn was also very responsive to my messages, even before I booked! The site was recently mowed with attention to creating a pleasing outdoor space, and we enjoyed walking the nature path at the bottom of the property (which we imagine will be gorgeous once the wildflowers -- or whatever is growing in the natural spaces -- bloom), in addition to just sitting on the bench or at the firepit to experience the natural world. The birdsong and bird dances (it's that time of year) were spellbinding, as was watching the horses and foals prancing in neighboring fields. Oh, and the white rabbit (I kid you not!) that was cavorting across the lawn around our teardrop trailer was simply magical. The proximity to the two homes on either side of the site gave us much less privacy than we had hoped for due to the openness of the property. The neighbor with the dogs was super-friendly, and was really trying to keep his dogs from barking, but not having much success. We would recommend this site to folks who enjoy the convenience of full hookup with the beauty of farmland as far as the eye can see, but if you're looking for something private and quiet, this is not ideal.

Yost Ridge in The Finger Lakes
Really nice flat and solid site for an RV to pull into. Water and electricity provided. The scene from the site down into a valley and field was great! Fire pit, chairs and wood provided (wood, for a donation) (although due to weather we were unable to use). Nice, clean picnic table. Cows and horses frolicking across the street! There are dogs next door, but for the most part they were pretty quiet, even with my dogs there. It is close to a road, but only a couple of vehicles passed by during our stay. There are also a couple of visiting rabbits grazing in the lot. Will be back during any MA to West trips along the 80-90 corridor (only about 20 mins to get back the tollway). Thanks, Dawn! Chris

Another Great Stay at Yost Ridge
This is our 2nd time at Yost Ridge and it was lovely. Despite the weather being less than ideal, we still enjoyed our time. Very close to Geneva and wineries on the eastern side of Seneca, it is a great home base to explore this amazing region. Everything worked as expected.

Dawn’s RV spot was beautiful. Gorgeous scenery. They had a helpful attendant who came and made sure we had everything we needed. The place is peaceful and tranquil and made for a nice relaxing weekend.
