Here's to a new year and safe travels.  We hope you enjoy Pooh's Corner as much as we enjoy having all of you great Hipcampers sharing our beautiful Fingerlakes area with us. 

PLEASE NOTE: Our sites are custom made for tent or car camping. RVs and any trailer campers are very difficult to place only because there are no easy ways to back in or turn around. We highly recommend "Havana Glen State Park" (same general area) for those types of camping units. 

Pooh's Corner lies in a rural area just 1.5 miles from Watkins Glen. We took great care to make sure each campsite is private and the trails are easily navigable. There are State Parks and places to hike one of the many gorges in and around beautiful Seneca Lake. Take a tour of the many wineries and breweries which our region is famous for. Enjoy hiking, swimming, biking, kayaking, and many historical sites to see.

Pooh's Corner is one of the best Hipcamp we have stayed in. It is well appointed with a charging station, fire woods so please a donation, drinking water composting toilet. Very close to Watkins Glen and Seneca Lake.

Matt and Sheryl are so welcoming and friendly. You can tell from the place and their vibe that they really enjoy hosting campers and are excited to show you their hard work. Each spot has its own little special signature. Some spots have a babbling brook you can hear as you fall asleep. The restroom is adorable and they might be adding additional features which I’d love to return to see.

‘Matt and Cheryl were very nice. They took me on a quick tour around their land and give me a choice on where to stay because it wasn’t busy being a weekday and it was wet and I have a van. It was just a quick stay for me but I enjoyed it.

Pooh’s corner has a great setup away from the crowds of the state park camping. They have been clearly working hard to make their land suitable for camping. We had great weather, and Sheryl had provided all the necessary amenities…only downside was bugs!

Lovely spot in Watkins Glen! We stayed in a large site that accommodated our big tent, 4 people, and 2 pups. Parked next to it. Useful to have the shelter and toilet nearby. Matt and Sheryl greeted us and acclimated our family to their land. They also shared a few maps and fun spots to check out. We stayed a week and wish we could have stayed longer! But it was time to shower:)
