The Villages at Turning Stone RV Park

5065 State Road 365
Verona, NY  13478

7/26-29, 2014


We drove over 300 miles, paid tons of tolls to drive this beautiful, very hilly and scenic route through Massachusetts into New York only to arrive at our destination.  We originally planned to stay only 2 nights but due to the weather we stayed for an extra night which really put us behind our drive schedule.


We were not happy with the first site they gave to us since it was totally covered with trees so close that when the wind blew we heard the branches touching.  But when we asked to be moved they said that all sites were reserved but several sites around us went empty for the first two nights and when we asked to stay one more night they told us we had to move because they had someone coming in that day on that site.  It worked out perfectly for us since they moved us to the site we wanted and the site we left stayed open again all day and night.


We paid just under $50 per night which is about par for the area during this time of the year.  It included water, electric, sewer, cable, and WiFi and it was on a really unleveled slab surrounded by trees and green grass that we backed into our site which was adjacent to a small fishing pond. 


They had great amenities but the weather was stormy and rainy the entire time we were there so we could not enjoy any of them.  Each time we tried to venture out to take photos the rain began to pour so we pretty much stayed indoors the entire time.  We did call for a shuttle to the casino and they explained that they do not come to the site that we would have to meet them at the end of our row.  As we ventured out and before we could get to the end of the row the shuttle passed us by so we waited over 20 minutes and several calls to get us one back.  The casino was huge but the prices were outrageous for eating, the buffet was over $25 per person so we ate at the food court for under $20 for both of us.

Most of the people we came across were rude, staff included.  If we are ever in the area again we would not stay here and would not recommend either the casino or the RV Park to anyone.

One of our big complaints with RV parks is how they manage their sites and reservations. We have had the same kind of experience in many parks. I think the short answer is that they just do not want to be bothered to figure out what they are actually doing in order to maybe make a customer happy.
