The Great Outdoors

When you’re camping at The Landing Campground, one of the first places you’ll want to visit is Verona Beach State Park. A natural paradise on the eastern banks of Oneida Lake, Verona Beach State Park provides a tranquil spot for swimming, hiking, and winter sports. With ten miles of trails, you can discover the forests, marshes, and swamplands that are home to hundreds of plant types as well as a wide variety of birdlife. Meanwhile, the cooling waters of Oneida Lake are the perfect way to cool off in the heat of the summer season. Alternatively, you can take a picnic or sunbathe on the sandy shore. During the wintertime, the park’s trails are suitable for snowmobiling, but you can also connect to longer trails and explore Central New York.Another place you can take your RV rental is Delta Lake State Park. Like Verona State Park, this is a popular swimming and sunbathing spot throughout the summertime, but Delta Lake State Park also offers a variety of watersport activities. The park is set up with two boat launch areas, and most vessels are permitted on the lake, including motorized boats and jet skis. You can rent a canoe, kayak, or paddleboard nearby or bring your own vessel. Back on dry land, you can hike for three miles on woodland trails, watch wildlife, and identify plant species. These trails are open for snowshoeing and cross-country skiing in the wintertime. Plus, families can make use of the park’s day-use area. Here you’ll find ball courts, horseshoes pits, and a playground complete with monkey bars for the little explorers.If you’re prepared to drive slightly farther out, take your campervan rental to Selkirk Shores State Park. It’s about an hour's drive away when you’re RV camping at The Landing Campground and is one of the best places in the region to see the sunset. During the summer, you can swim from the sandy beach, but the real highlight of Selkirk Shores State Park is its trail network. This offers up to 12 miles of marked and unmarked trails of varying difficulty. You can opt for an easy lakeside trail, traverse the marshes, or enjoy stunning views over Grindstone Creek and the bluff on Lake Ontario. In the migration season, you might spot bald eagles, hummingbirds, or osprey. In the winter, you can explore by ski or snowmobile instead.

Explore the Area

After a full day at the beach or an adventure in the snow, you’ll need something to fill your belly. Sylvan Beach is a lakeside village located just a short drive from the campsites at The Landing Campground. At this scenic vacation spot, you can find a mixture of restaurants, including all-you-can-eat buffets, American grills, Italian cuisine, and seafood. There’s even a pancake house for the kids and a brewery for the adults. Looking for some souvenirs to take home? Or just need to stock up on supplies? Sylvan Beach hosts a mini-mall and an RV store. The village also offers a selection of craft, hardware, and grocery stores.If you’re more interested in sightseeing than shopping, then you’re in luck because Oneida County is brimming with historical sites and activities. Just hop onto the Erie Canal National Heritage Corridor. One of the most significant human-man waterways in America, this historic corridor spans for 524 miles. Over half of this route is bicycle-friendly, but you might prefer to board a canal boat cruise from Camillus or rent a paddleboat in Oswego.There’s something for history buffs too, with over 800 listings on the National Register of Historic Places spread along The Corridor. One of these historical sites is the Chittenango Canal Landing Boat Museum, located within the Old Erie Canal State Historic Park. Here you can learn about the history of the Old Erie Canal and the transportation vessels that were used for trading goods. The museum hosts indoor and outdoor exhibits, including original tools, workshops, and dry docks. The museum also hosts temporary art and photography exhibitions as well as storytelling events, seasonal runs, and children’s educational programs.Whether you rent a camper near The Landing Campground in the spring, summer, fall, or winter, there’s something for travelers of all ages and interests in Oneida County.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
