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. The trails are lined with lighting and easily navigable. A small creek runs through our property that provides beautiful ambience in the night-time. 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 (there is a winery with a Frisbee Golf course right across the road). Enjoy hiking, swimming, biking, kayaking, fishing, and many historical sites to see.

My wife and I car camped here the night while visiting Watkins Glen and the Finger Lakes for our anniversary. The place was adorable and had everything we needed, plus the hosts were super friendly! We will be back for sure next time we visit!

Pooh’s Corner was the perfect spot for our weekend getaway at the Finger Lakes. Matt and Sheryl welcomed us and gave us a quick tour around when we arrived. We stayed at the Pooh’s hideaway campsite which was the largest spot and the closest to the bathroom. The campsite had a campfire pit, a table with two chairs, a hammock, and a cooking grate that you could hang over the fire. There were lights that guided you to the shed that housed the toilet along with some travel guides and extra supplies. There was firewood and fresh water available right next to the shed. Overall it was a great experience and the atmosphere was very cozy. It’s only a 4 min drive from Watkins Glenn which was a nice added bonus!

We absolutely loved Pooh’s. It the kind of place where you can pull up after a long day on the road and it just has it all. Firewood for purchase. A great bathroom. And the hosts even brought us a table. The cutest campsite on our entire bike ride. The hosts were so sweet as well. And the camp space felt private.

Lovely site with a hammock and cute table and chairs. Lots of privacy in the sites but still quite convenient. Will look forward to returning again.
