We live and travel full time in our RV, so we will be updating this blog often! Come back soon!


  • If you are heading to visit Watkins Glen State Park, we suggest Sugar Hill State Forest. As you can see from the picture (not my picture) there is no limit on the size RV that will fit. (See GPS on Picture) The maximum stay is only 3 nights but it’s free.
  • Santway Park – GPS: 44.208554, -75.799707. Just outside of the town of Theresa. About 10 camping lots. The Indian River flows alongside the whole campgrounds. Has portable bathrooms. A pavilion that has electrical plugins. Also a playground. The best part … It’s free!
  • Stillwater Reservoir – Lowville, New York – Lowville, New York GPS: 43.889798, -75.035497

Thousand Trails

Roundout Valley RV Campground – Located in Accord, NY. This is a great place to go if you’re exploring Lake Minnewaska! We stayed here for a week in September 2020, and it was a fantastic stay! It was more crowded than I anticipated being September, but still a very nice stay.
