Report: This campground is not for everyone. While there are trees at every campsite and partial separations between sites, this is very much and open and grassy campground. However, the lake is beautiful, beach is very nice, great hiking trails, and playground.

Report: Keuka lake state park, on the west branch of the lake near Branchport, NY, is very nice and quiet. It has a beautiful beach with a picnic area and boat launch and very nice walking trails, all in a beautiful rural setting close to scores of wineries. If you visit the area, note that the temperatures noted in the description are understated and the snow amounts are overstated, at least near the lakes. While it gets VERY hot and humid here in the summer, the area right near the lakes are comparatively mild in the winter (hence the grapes can grow well), at least by New England standards. It can get below zero but usually only briefly (nothing like the teens and twenties below you'll find in Vermont, for example). It's a great area to visit!
