1 site · Lodging4 acres · Silver Creek, NY
Welcome to our charming cabin, built in the summer of 2022 from a simple 12X26 Amish frame. *Important note: Lake Rd is busy and there will be road noise that dies down after 11pm. There is a historic and active railroad line behind the cabin and you will hear the train pass through the day and night. Some people have found it cool or relaxing but others have not. Nestled on its own 4-acre parcel within our family's 12-acre plot, this cozy retreat offers a private driveway and setting for your getaway. New additions this year include a fire ring and porta-potty, adding to the complete experience of your stay. Just a mile down the road, you'll find access to Lake Erie, boasting a small beach and kayak slip. On clear nights, don't miss the opportunity to gaze at the stunning stars above. Your host, Brian, has infused the cabin with photography and treasures from his global journeys, adding a unique touch to your stay. The hosts philosophy is to not bother you at all during your stay unless you have a specific need or concern, so your stay is all yours. The price is kept low to reflect this a campsite rental, not a hosted Airbnb. With that said every effort is made to make things comfy. Features include: - Private driveway - 12-foot porch with a porch bar - Four windows for a refreshing cross breeze (East-West orientation) - Finished floors, walls, and ceiling, with insulated walls for comfort - Double bed and reading desk - 7-slot vinyl record bar for music enthusiasts - Wood stove (available November - February) - Lockable doors for security - Fire ring and camping chairs for outdoor enjoyment - Porta-potty with pump sink - Garbage bin and dish sink -Common Kitchen items like plates, bowls, cups, cutlery etc… -Garbage Bags (If garbage is used please take with you upon departure) True campsite experience and not an Airbnb rental, meaning there is no electricity, water, or sewer on the property. However, we provide battery packs and solar options for your convenience. The dish sink operates with a foot pump connected to a 5-gallon water jug. Guests are welcome to bring their own wood or explore the surrounding area for available resources. For your safety, please exercise caution when venturing into the woods and avoid approaching the active train tracks located at the back of the property. While the passing train adds to the rustic charm of the setting, it may NOT be suitable for light sleepers. Road traffic noise tends to calm down in quiet hours. Bed sleeps 2 but up to 3 welcome. We hope you enjoy your stay at what we believe is the coziest camp in WNY. Feel free to reach out with any questions or special requests. We look forward to hosting you soon!

The best camping near Evangola State Park guide

Overview

About

Evangola’s main attraction is its arc-shaped shoreline and low one-mile-long, cliff-lined, natural sand beach on Lake Erie. As well as swimming in the lake, you can hike or bike along nature trails while looking out for wildlife such as white-tailed deer, raccoons, turkeys, and red-tailed hawks. The disc golf course provides a scenic yet competitive way to explore the park and large boats use this waterway to head to the Atlantic or to the other Great Lakes. Open from mid-April to late October, Evangola State Park Campground has 80 sites spread out in a wooded area. 

Tips for snagging a campsite

  1. Evangola is a very popular state park so it’s a good idea to make bookings as far in advance as possible. 
  2. Bookings can easily be secured online or by phone, up to nine months in advance.
  3. Same-day reservations are permitted only until 3pm. No walk-ins are allowed.

When to go

While camping is only available seasonally, the park is open year-round. Spring and summer are the busiest seasons and the best times for cooling off in the lake, but it can get very busy, especially on weekends and holidays. If you enjoy cold weather, you can enjoy various activities in winter, such as ice-fishing and  cross-country skiing or snowshoeing along the park's three-mile trail.

Know before you go

  • Guarded swimming is available from Memorial through Labor Day.
  • You’ll find plenty of grocery stores within a 10-minute drive.
  • Up to two dogs are permitted in each campsite, but must be on a leash of no more than six feet and have proof of rabies inoculation.
