Once owned by a group of gentlemen who liked to come down to this rustic hunting camp and escape the hustle and bustle of the city....(and their wives..lol) Through the years they brought their families and friends. Eric purchased the property from his father and has since cleared the land and added several outbuildings. He put in two ponds, a suana, a stage, barn and many other amenities. He and Amy have since worked on building a new bathhouse to accommodate more guests. We welcome you to Backwoods Manor and hope you enjoy your stay!!Learn more about this land:Pitch your tent anywhere on our 45 acres! In the secluded woods or closer to the comforts of the main cabin.

Mission Hemlock Grove

4 sites · RVs, Tents200 acres · Conesus, NY
Welcome, Mission Conesus, originally built by Franciscan Catholics. These lands were likely chosen for many reasons. Suffice it to say there is something special here. Come discover for yourself. Lose yourself here, or maybe find yourself, among the Hemlocks. First, a bit about the terrain. There is much in the way of forest, very mature, and a broad array of plant species. Elevation differences are vast, land to the west is uphill for quite a ways, and downhill to the east, to Hemlock lake below, so the world here can feel a bit tilted. We adjoin 150 acres of nature conservancy lands that nobody seems to know about. These lands are for respectful public daytime use. We also adjoin 6600 acres of NY state forest which is public property. Exploring all that is here would take a very long time! Want to get away? Welcome to our little slice of heaven. We are just getting started in the camping space, but for now, we're accepting bookings and looking forward to hosting you, at the mission.

The best camping near Letchworth State Park guide

Overview

About

Letchworth’s glacier-carved landscapes have earned the park the moniker of “Grand Canyon of the East.” Nowadays, instead of ice, the Genesee River runs through the canyon spaces, shouldered by lush forests. Visitors have 66 miles of hiking trails to enjoy, as well as trails for horseback riding, biking, snowmobiling, and cross-country skiing. Letchworth’s conference and nature center offers outdoor, history, and performing arts programs, plus guided walks, tours, and a summer lecture series. After a day’s worth of hiking to the three major waterfalls that lie between cliffs of up to 600 feet in height, campers can rest up at one of Letchworth State Park Campground’s 270 campsites (or 81 comfortable cabins).

Tips for snagging a campsite

  1. As Letchworth is a popular camping destination, booking in advance is highly recommended, especially on weekends.
  2. Booking can be easily done online or by phone and up to nine months in advance.
  3. In the peak season, from mid-May through early October, same-day reservations are allowed only until 3pm, and walk-ins are not permitted. In winter, non-reserved sites are open to same-day reservations and walk-ins.

When to go

For waterfall chasing and wildlife watching, a visit during the late summer or early spring is ideal. On the other hand, the fall season promises picture-perfect views as the leaves burst into color. Winter has a different appeal and the park offers such winter activities as snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, tubing, sledding, and snowmobiling—trails right outside the park’s Maplewood Lodge and nearby Highbanks Camping Ground are part of the New York state snowmobile trail system.

Know before you go

  • The camping area has a well-stocked camp store and laundry.
  • Pets are only allowed in certain loops and must be on a leash no longer than six feet.
  • There are no equipment rentals available inside the park, so visitors must bring their own skis, snowshoes, and other gear.
  • Cell service and wifi are limited in the park, so it’s best to download maps before visiting.
