Robert H. Treman State Park – Ithaca, NY


Treman is a quaint little State Park located south west of Ithaca. It features a Gorge Trail, and is near two other State Parks with similar trails featuring hundreds of waterfalls. The Ithaca area has Cayuga Lake, several Fingerlakes Wineries nearby, two Colleges, and many unique shopping and dining experiences.

The campground itself is quite small with very few amenities. The Electric sites are very tight, but the Creekside sites are mostly large and grassy with some shade trees. Very few sites can handle anything bigger than 30′. Several basic Cabins are available as well.

We enjoyed the peaceful nature of our weekend visit. Being so close to the two Colleges, we were expecting to hear some loud parties. We were pleasantly surprised. The few students that were there were having a good time without being disruptive.

The area is worth the time if you’re traveling New York, and Treman State Park is a good base.


  1. Our stay at Robert Treman was OK. It’s a beautiful park but unfortunately the rangers/staff do nothing to enforce the rules. A camper let their pit bull run around unleashed. Traffic in and out all thru the night. Sites are small and side by side. Some campers has as many as 4 tents and more than the maximum number of people. When these issues were brought to the attention of the ranger, he looked at us like a deer in the headlights and just said sorry. Be prepared for a lot of rulebreakers, and don’t expect any resolution from the rangers or staff.
