We stayed at Top A Rise campground outside Falconer, New York. It is a "campground" not a resort but very nice. It is a Passport America listing. Also has a golf course nearby. Everyone is friendly.

Before I start, I would recommend that anyone looking for a campgrounds, start the process in march to may of each year. Pick out 4 to 6 campgrounds that appear interesting to you, and plan a get-a-way trip to explore these places (one to two campgrounds per month. Look for clean, somewhat level sites, amount of shade you are looking for (yes, look up at the trees above you), look for water drainage, bathrooms, office attitude, space of sites to the next one, pool, activities, playground, etc. Please look over the campground and mark down 8 to 12 sites that suite you needs (in case some are already taken). In doing this, you will eliminate about 90% of your headaches. Beaver Valley Campgrounds is one of the best laid back campgrounds that we were at. In the tent/pop up area, the trees are about 4 stories tall, which kept the heat far from ground level. Every site is very level, and spacious. We were 4 sites from the bathroom/washer-dryer area, and you couldn’t hear the door close. Our site was about 95% shade all day. The bathrooms are listed as one of my top 5 ever, and the owners were very friendly. The pool is out in the open, and not large by any measure. There is a playground, but be careful. Before 10 a.m. and after 6 p.m. are about when children should be on them. If you are not sure, use your hand to touch the plastic slide, to determine if it is safe to use. For campers with children, consider sites to the right or center of the tent camping loop. On the outside driving loop, to the left side of the bathrooms, some of those sites have a drop off that goes about 30 feet down. You will be chasing missing balls and toys for most of the weekend. But in saying that, when we go back to Beaver Valley, those are the sites that I want. The wooded valley view, with a fire ring next to it, is more to my liking. I would plant my chairs at that side, and enjoy the view. I would also decorate that side with lights, so the seasonal sites would notice me. Maybe a disco ball light, with 2 spot lights? Good space between sites, and quite easy to get to the bathrooms. Not far from Beaver Valley is Doylestown, which offers historical and winery tours. Good food nearby, north or west of the campground. Now, as for getting there? Talk to the campground owners for the best access, with what you have to bring. The north to south access road gets very narrow, and the side of the asphalt road drops off a good 6 to 8 inches at some locations. But, if you want to see a touch of the past, you will see large boulders on the eastern side of that road. Those are the remains from the last Ice Age, and quite impressive if you take the time to look. The road is narrow, and it is tight for 2 cars to pass. There is a southern west/east way that is better for motor homes and pop up trailers. Last, but not least, we found a place to eat in the little town of Revere. It is Pizza Bella, and it was one of the best places that we ate at. I had the Calif. Cheese Steak, and my wife Barb had the regular cheese steak sandwich. WOW. One of the best Calif. Cheese Steak sand. that I ever had. We both barely finished our meal. Lots of business, and even the local police go there. Do your research for live entertainment, and evening fun. There is a large community playground, at the town of Revere, with an open picnic pavilion and 3 portable toilets. Hope that you enjoy your weekend just as we did. Jerry and Barb 8.
