Dave's Tips

Dave's tips are currently available for only some camprounds. Unfortunately Cayuga Lake isn't one of them! Check back another time.
Cayuga Lake photos were taken in the spring on May 17, 2014. As such consider that the leaves on the trees are not fully out. If you are camping at Cayuga Lake in the summer, you can assume that there will be more shade and site privacy on sites that have deciduous trees.
