Camp Riverside At This Stunning New York RV Park

Upstate New York is known for its stunning natural beauty and outdoor activities, but even if you're already familiar with the state's mountains and waterfalls, you haven't experienced it all until you've woken up to the peaceful, picturesque sights of Treasure Isle RV Park. The park is situated just east of Oneida Lake, about a 45-minute drive from Syracuse. At the campgrounds, you'll discover 42 acres of riverfront views, lush greenery, and nature trails.

Treasure Isle RV Park is ideal for families and has amenities for children, as well as a dog walking path to keep your pooch active. Pack the whole gang into your RV and settle into one of the park's 100 sites (our recommendation: grab a waterfront spot if you can). If you prefer to spend time on the river, you can also reserve dock space for your boat.

Note that Treasure Isle isn't a place you visit once for a short time — it's a seasonal home away from home, with rates covering your entire stay from spring through the fall. If you're on the road exploring the East Coast or are just in need of a quiet escape, this RV park has you covered.

What to do at Treasure Isle

Given that Treasure Isle RV Park is the kind of place you'll want to linger, the best way to spend your time might just be relaxing near the site's sparkling rivers, soaking up the fresh air and summer sunshine. However, if you prefer to keep busy, you'll find an abundance of activities and entertainment.

The gem of the park is its mile-long stretch of river, offering opportunities for boating, fishing, kayaking, and swimming. You'll also find a sandy beach, perfect for having a picnic or building sandcastles with the kids. For some fun and games, head to the area's horseshoe pits, volleyball court, basketball court, or tetherball pole.

Perhaps best of all, Treasure Isle offers a range of events to socialize with other campers and build season-long (or even lifelong) friendships. Look for kids' crafts, holiday picnics, adults-only bingo, cornhole tournaments, talent shows, and other events throughout your stay.

Getting there and exploring the surrounding area

Treasure Isle RV Park is a quiet oasis far from the big city. As such, you'll find that the site is off the beaten path, nestled between the river and other campgrounds. The best way to get there is by following the park's driving directions provided on its website since some navigation systems may take you to inaccessible roads and bridges. If you're passing through Sylvan Beach first, follow the town's Main Street (Route 13) until you reach Vienna Road. Turn and follow Vienna, continuing until it turns into Haskins Road. Stay straight for 1.2 miles, and you'll find Treasure Isle on the right.

When you need a break from RV camping, head back to Sylvan Beach and spend time at the Sylvan Beach Amusement Park, filled with rides, arcade games, and seasonal attractions. Nearby, you'll also find casinos, restaurants, and a beach lining Oneida Lake.

Further away from Treasure Isle, take a trip to family-friendly attractions such as The Wild Animal Park in Chittenango and the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown. For food, shops, and other sights, drive about 20 minutes east to the suburban town of Rome or west to the city of Syracuse.
