Great Park, NOT So Great CG
Loved the park. Hikes, scenery, and things to do outside the park (like wineries). This is what upgraded it to 4 stars (the park is 5 stars). The campground would be a generous 3 stars. Sites are, generally, nicely spaced for privacy, BUT many, many are angled such that you have to back in at greater than 90° to the road, with trees on each side of the driveway. We saw many people go the wrong way down the one-way loop road just so they could line up to get in and out of their site. I saw one person pull their truck and TT straight nose in, hugging one side of the driveway, so then they had room to unhook the truck and back it out along-side the trailer, before they ran the slide out. Sites did require some leveling, but not an unreasonable amount. Price was around $27/night (hard to figure out, exactly, after all the additional fees, like out of state and Reserve America fees). All in all, very disappointed in the campground, but highly recommend the park.

Our site was next to the bath house and dumpster. Both were never an issue with noise or inconsiderate people. The site was level and had 20/30/50 amp power. Water needs to be filled before going to your site. There is a water spigot 1 site before this site. The campsite was very quiet considering it is a holiday weekend.

We stayed in the Mohawk Loop with Electric (no water at sites) in a 24’ trailer. Our space (94) was great - spacious, flat, peaceful, but many of the spots on this loop have very difficult and narrow back-ins between trees or at an odd angle. Many campers came down the one-way loop the wrong way just to get a better angle for back-in. Staff at check in were nice but not very helpful. Never saw staff driving through camp loops.

Nice State Park
We stayed in the Mohawk loop with electricity (site 50). The site was spacious and very quite in our section of the loop. The bath house was clean and relatively modern. Exactly what you would expect from a state park. We would definitely stay here again.

We went tent camping. It think with the fees it was a little over 25 a night but somewhere in that ballpark. The only complaint we have is that we saw no Park rangers in the camping areas patrolling (maybe we missed them somehow) But we had neighbors who were playing music until midnight so quiet time was not strictly enforced as I have seen it at other state parks. We wished they had because it was a minor nuisance. Other than that our stay was very nice. Bathrooms were in good shape even though the toilets took forever to flush. We stayed on the Seneca loop and we accidentally got a site that was a little too close to the neighbors. Try to get a site with more space around it. Some sites are well spaced and some are a bit too close. They would be good if you were camping with your friends and family and needed a double space.

We stayed in the mohawk loop with electric. Our camper is 20 ft. Some sites are short but we had no problem in ours. Plenty of room. Some spots are a little awkward to get into. The bath/shower buildings are clean. Some dated but one was new. The park is very nice. The Gorge Trail hike is spectacular. Staff was friendly. I would stay here again.

Fits a 30 ft Trailer And Two Vehicles
The Watkins's Glen reservation through Reserve America does not clearly explain the terms. There are only "Walk Up Only" sites for RVs but they list the details of the camp site without much context. Call in if you have questions, I'll report back on my experience.

Have Been There Twice
We enjoyed 2 May visits. Campsites are nice and the Glen walk is spectacular. Be ready for crowds and your dog is only allowed on the rim trail....which actually quite nice as well.
We camp in a 35ft 5th. It does fit into the electrical sites.
