Visited Camp Elmbois today which is just above the west side wineries on Keuka lake.  It will be nice in a few years but to small today. Looks like Cardinal campground may be the winner for Keuka lake. Gary

Some attractions that have been missed - Mark Twain museums; 2 in Elmira plus his gravesite.
You may also want to check out the Race Track events. They hold a weekend wine festival every year with (dry) camping on site and all wineries come to the track to display and sample their products.

The Finger Lakes Wine Festival is in July with no info out yet. Friends went and it was a ball. Camping is no hookups inside the track.

Hmm. Interested. Would get a visit in with relatives while we are there.

Corning Glass has two public areas. The Museum and the Studio. The Studio is where you get to make stuff with glass for a fee, of course. Best to make reservations for a session. Easy to do. Some items require a cure time of 1-3 days. Sometimes there are master glass students there making neat stuff, too. You can sit and watch them work. Lots of art galleries in Corning as well. Also the Rockwell Museum of Western Art.

We have only stayed at Watkins Glen State Park. It's nice, if you get right on it, you can get site reserved together. Some of the sites are not for the bigger rigs due to trees in the way of turning to get into your spot. Electric loop is very shaded. Pool is always cold. If you start the waterfall trail from the pool parking lot, you can walk down to the bottom at the visitor's center. We park one car at the pool and one at the visitor's center so we don't have to fight gravity.

At this point in time, sadly have to say that we are out...  :(  Got the results of the first round of vacation bidding ...  Not too good ...   Even with 17 years the best I could get was two weeks at the end of August beginning of September ...  >:(   Unlike some, I at least got summer ....

Another thing to do if it is an off weekend for the race track is to do the "Thunder Road Tour"  you drive your vehicle on the track behind a pace car and complete about 3 or 4 laps, with a stop at the start/finish line for photos ...

The Corning Glass museum and shop is wonderful, but if you go give yourself a lot of time, it takes a while to go through it all.

And take lots of money and credit cards.  The gift shops (yes plural), are great, but can be very expensive.
