Turning Stone Campground – Verona, NY
A part of the Onieda Casino complex, one-half mile from the Casino and numerous golf courses, Turning Stone is one really fine campground. The park offers fast WiFi, generous cable, and great amenities including a heated pool with lifeguard and jacuzzi. Also nicely landscaped sites, daily trash removal (including new can liners!) from each site, wonderful jogging paths, and best of all: one phone call gets you a site-to-casino (and back again) shuttle service 24/7.
The odds felt a little worse than usual on the video poker, plus the payouts are a bit more complicated than at other casinos, but waddya gonna do?. Try the Italian restaurant… four stars! Also the spa offers a great fullbody massage. At about $55 a night on weekends and $45 on weekdays, it’s a little steep, but the amenities (and the generally child-free and upscale clientele) make this one of the best campgrounds (along with the Key West MM12 KOA–an excellent place!) we have ever visited.
We lost a steelbelt in one of our tires and had four new tires (at a good price) installed with no hassle. For economy-minded campers, there is an overflow lot that is perfectly acceptable to drycamp at and use the free shuttle service.
