Alerts and Important Information
**2013 Park Improvements** During winter and early spring, the campground will be upgrading 86 electric sites. The campground will be ready for the May 10th opening, however due to the nature of the project some areas will be recovering from the excavation of electric lines.

Some sites and or loops may not be ready for use prior to May 21, 2013. Pet restrictions may be lifted in non-pet loops during this period. For the most up-to-date information, please contact the park at 585-964-2462

Each year the campground makes every effort to provide safe swimming opportunities by testing the water and by keeping the swimming areas staffed with lifeguards. Please be aware that if the safety of our swimmers is compromised, due to lack of lifeguard coverage or water quality issues, swimming will be prohibited and therefore cannot be a guaranteed activity. We apologize for this inconvenience as it may occur with little advance notice.
